Marcelo Lombardo: 'Cloud management software is revolutionising small firms'

#artificialintelligence

Earlier this year, San Francisco-based venture capital firm Riverwood Capital invested US$ 20 million in Omie, a Brazilian start-up that provides small and medium businesses (SMBs) with an AI-powered business management software. Omie's genius idea was to focus on small firms, not served by larger management software services. By automating business functions, the company essentially eliminates the massive amount of paper work required in Brazil, a country notorious for red tape. "Cloud management platforms are revolutionising small and medium businesses in Brazil," says Marcelo Lombardo, Omie's CEO and founder. He spoke with LSE Business Review managing editor Helena Vieira on 5 November during the Web Summit conference in Lisbon. Starting from the beginning, what does Omie do? Omie is a cloud management software for small and midsize businesses. We put together pretty much everything a small business owner needs for his daily life (financials, invoicing, inventory, manufacturing, etc).


Stephen Hawking issues dire warning on AI

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence could sideline and "destroy" its human creators if engineers cannot get a grip on the ethics behind it, Stephen Hawking has warned. Speaking at the Web Summit in Lisbon, the theoretical physicist said AI has the potential to be the best or worst thing humanity has ever seen and the scary reality is we just don't know which yet. "We cannot know if we will be infinitely helped by AI or ignored by it and sidelined, or conceivably destroyed by it," he said. The Cambridge professor said that while AI could be hugely beneficial for reducing poverty, disease and restoring the natural environment, it's impossible to predict "what we might achieve when our own minds are amplified by AI." "AI could be the worst invention of the history of our civilization, that brings dangers like powerful autonomous weapons or new ways for the few to oppress the many." "AI could develop a will of its own, a will that is in conflict with ours and which could destroy us. In short, the rise of powerful AI will be either the best or the worst thing ever to happen to humanity."

Robo-dog creator learned by knocking down toddler

#artificialintelligence

The boss of robotics company Boston Dynamics has confessed he once pushed his one-year-old daughter over just to work out how people balance. A YouTube video of Marc Raibert's humanoid robot Atlas remaining upright while being poked with hockey sticks has 34 million views. He no longer knocked his robots over just to show people they could get themselves back up again, he said. But when he had done so, it was because he had felt like a "proud parent". "In fact, I have video of pushing on my daughter when she was one year old, knocking her over, getting some grief," he told BBC News, at Web Summit in Lisbon.

Microsoft president Brad Smith predicts AI will be as transformative to society as the combustion engine over the next 3 decades

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft president Brad Smith has predicted that artificial intelligence will transform society in the next three decades, just as the internal combustion engine did during the first half of the 20th century. Smith was speaking at the Web Summit technology conference in Lisbon, Portugal on Wednesday, where he discussed the intersection between tech and society. He said: "When we look to the decade ahead, in many respects AI will be a tool of the sort the world has seldom seen before, and hence it can become a weapon as well. When you look back at the first half of the twentieth century, it was a time that was transformed by one invention above all else: the combustion engine. "[The combustion engine] led to the car and the airplane; it led to the truck and the tractor; it changed every part of every economy.


Top Huawei exec Guo Ping says 5G will be 'the new electricity' when combined with AI and other technologies

#artificialintelligence

Guo Ping, rotating chairman of Huawei, has painted a stunningly optimistic picture of high-speed 5G wireless technology, claiming it will be "the new electricity" when combined with other emergent technologies such as artificial intelligence. Guo, who has worked at Huawei for over thirty years since he joined the firm as a 22-year-old, was speaking at the Web Summit technology conference in Lisbon, Portugal on Monday. Huawei employs a system whereby top execs rotate in and out of the position of chairman for months-long stints, while CEO Ren Zhengfei remains in place. Addressing a sold-out crowd, Guo drew a lengthy comparison between 5G and the technological harnessing of electricity for human use. He said: "5G plus'x' will create a smart new era. This'x' can be AI, big data or VR/AR, among other technologies. As you all know, 5G deployment has just begun. AI's applications for a range of industries are still in their infancy. I believe that in the future, 5G plus'x' will create countless possibilities for entrepreneurs."

5 things we learned at Kaspersky NEXT

#artificialintelligence

From machine learning and AI right through to securing the IoT, here are five things we learned about at this year's event, which took place in Lisbon on October 14. Have you ever thought about how many decisions machines have made today? Or how many of those decisions were based on gender, race, or background? Chances are you don't even realize just how many decisions are made by artificial intelligence instead of a human. Kriti Sharma, Founder of AI for Good, explained that algorithms are being used all the time to make decisions about who we are and what we want.
