Together, the pair could form a perfect storm thanks to COVID-19 driving demand. Cannabis is more popular than ever thanks to lockdowns and vape technology and the market is predicted to be worth $76.3 billion by 2027). A.I. adds new business benefits for the industry that the COVID boom could mean big changes ahead for regulation. Adrian Holguin, CEO of CannaShark Consulting, started consulting for cannabis companies in 2017, and in three years he says the changes have been dramatic.

Sistema experto para el diagn\'ostico de enfermedades y plagas en los cultivos del arroz, tabaco, tomate, pimiento, ma\'iz, pepino y frijol Artificial Intelligence

Agricultural production has become a complex business that requires the accumulation and integration of knowledge, in addition to information from many different sources. To remain competitive, the modern farmer often relies on agricultural specialists and advisors who provide them with information for decision making in their crops. But unfortunately, the help of the agricultural specialist is not always available when the farmer needs it. To alleviate this problem, expert systems have become a powerful instrument that has great potential within agriculture. This paper presents an Expert System for the diagnosis of diseases and pests in rice, tobacco, tomato, pepper, corn, cucumber and bean crops. For the development of this Expert System, SWI-Prolog was used to create the knowledge base, so it works with predicates and allows the system to be based on production rules. This system allows a fast and reliable diagnosis of pests and diseases that affect these crops.

"It's going to tax human judgment in very serious ways"--AI on the battlefield


ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE is making its way into every aspect of life, including military conflict. We look at the thorny legal and ethical issues that the newest arms race raises. Three executives from Fukushima's melted-down nuclear-power plant were cleared of negligence today, but the disaster's aftermath is far from over. And, what a swish new Chinese restaurant in Havana says about China-Cuba relations.

We've unleashed AI. Now we need a treaty to control it

Los Angeles Times

Artificial intelligence has not yet confronted a crisis like the showdown between the USSR and the U.S. in Cuba. By and large, AI has provided us with amazingly beneficial tools. "Learning algorithms" on our digital devices extract patterns from data to influence what we buy, watch and read. On a grander scale, AI helps doctors detect and treat diseases, opens new markets and improves productivity for business, and creates data sets and models that address critical issues related to education, energy and the environment.

Could your next lawyer be a robot? Tech firms making case for artificial intelligence


Early in his career, Andrew Hall, an old-school Miami attorney whose Coconut Grove firm has sued governments from Cuba to Sudan, worked on a lawsuit that lasted three full years. The case was cartoonishly complex. The Vietnam War was sputtering to an end and McDonnell Douglas Aircraft, then America's largest manufacturer of jet airplanes, had defaulted on a contract involving the delivery of 99 jets to Eastern Airlines. There were over a million documents put into evidence and almost 300 witnesses. The massive operation employed so many lawyers, clerks and paralegals, they resembled a legal militia more than a legal team.

Implicit biases from word embeddings: methods – RealThinks


Friends, this post is an extension of my previous work at analyzing language in reduced space. Here's a quick refresher in case you don't want to go back and read the whole thing: Using word2vec, I took a several blocks of text and projected them into a 100-dimensional1The default dimensions vector space. These vectors are called word embeddings, and we can perform algebraic manipulations on them, including getting comparisons like Havana:Cuba:: Berlin:Germany.

Who Is John Yoo? President Donald Trump's Executive Orders Went Too Far, Says Conservative Torture Memos Author

International Business Times

In a flurry of action since taking office, President Donald Trump has signed multiple far-reaching executive orders to pursue his policy plans. And though every president since George Washington has utilized executive orders to implement change, it's not the sheer number but the contents of Trump's orders that are worrisome to many. Even John Yoo, a conservative law professor who authored some of the George W. Bush administration's memorandum's defending torture, said the new president has gone too far. "Even Alexander Hamilton, our nation's most ardent proponent of executive power, would be worried by now," said Yoo in a op-ed published Monday in the New York Times. Yoo said he advocated for "vigorous, perhaps extreme" measures in the wake of Sept. 11, including the invasion of Afghanistan, the opening of Guantanamo prison and "enhanced interrogation of terrorist leaders."

Human rights: From Obama to Trump

Al Jazeera

Barack Obama won the White House in 2008 in good measure on the promise of systematic change, not just to rescue an American economy in the throes of the Great Recession, but in a strategic theatre defined by unjustified wars, torture and other violations of international law and norms. For the global human rights community, there was anticipation that the new administration would work to restore the most egregious violations of US international legal obligations and hold to account the perpetrators of human rights violations. Despite the hope generated by his famous 2009 Cairo speech promising "a new beginning" to America's relationship with the Muslim world, Obama's presidency was marked by banality and continuity rather than change. Not only did his administration refuse to hold anyone accountable for the unconscionable violations of the Bush years, it continued, and even ramped up, many of its policies. The lowlights of his administration's actions on human rights include: the large scale use of drone strikes outside active war zones; support or muted criticisms of repressive regimes across the Middle East and North Africa - and beyond; sale or supply of far more weapons than any administration since World War II; favouring the "stability" of authoritarian regimes to the uncertainty of "Islamic" or other political movements; unwavering support for Israel; ongoing use of massive surveillance programmes that encourage similar activities by authoritarian regimes against their citizens; failure to close Guantanamo Bay; and a complete lack of leadership on the unprecedented refugee crises across Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
