6 Business Applications that Badly Need Better AI -


The success and growth of AI is undeniable. Yet there are still basic tasks performing poorly, despite or because of automation. In some cases, you can blame reliance on outdated AI. In other cases, it is a result of corporate policies or multiple AI systems that compete against each other. The AI systems in question may be top notch, but they play against each other. It is similar to a Wall Street firm using two separate, competing black box trading systems, resulting in cannibalism.

The metaverse space race will be visible from Wall Street


We are excited to bring Transform 2022 back in-person July 19 and virtually July 20 - 28. Join AI and data leaders for insightful talks and exciting networking opportunities. The past 12 months have taught us that the metaverse is regarded by many as the next major frontier for tech. The furor caused by Facebook's conspicuous rebranding to Meta has shown that the 21st century's biggest technological space race will be fought on the battlegrounds of Wall Street -- but the stock market has also helped to identify some of the forgotten players that will be integral to the mechanics of this brave new world. The race for the metaverse is a unique prospect for the 21st century, primarily because there is little understanding of what such a revolutionary mixed reality digital space will actually look like in practice -- or how businesses will be looking to capitalize on the new technology. So, who will succeed in profiting the most from the metaverse?

Funding obscured: The family office behind Elon Musk's $44 billion Twitter buyout

The Japan Times

The small family office that is managing the wealth of the world's richest person and is helping put together the largest-ever acquisition to be carried out by one person is shrouded in secrecy. On Monday, Musk clinched a deal to buy Twitter Inc. for $44 billion in a seminal moment for one of the world's most influential public forums. Musk -- who is also the chief executive of electric car maker Tesla Inc. and aerospace company SpaceX -- revealed in a regulatory filing last week that the social media company should reach out to its family office as a point of contact regarding his proposed acquisition. Yet little is known about the Austin, Texas-based family office that manages Musk's assets. The office is called Excession and the man who helped build it is Jared Birchall, a former Morgan Stanley banker who has advised Musk on his interactions with Wall Street for several years, according to regulatory filings and legal documents.

Can Artificial Intelligence create art


Yes You Are -- Debating the Impact of machine-created art," Nautilus Science Magazine, December 4th, 2019. The following eight museums are host to most of the most acclaimed art pieces ever created in the world: The Hermitage, The Armoury Chamber, and The Tretyakov Gallery in Russia; The Louvre in France, The Sistine Chapel, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in the USA, The British Museum in the UK, and The Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico. Computers can create wonderful and certainly very appealing things. But by saying that they can create art, their definition or art and that of the Oxford Dictionary are completely different. Art is the use of imagination to express ideas or feelings. It is not only the final product but the path to get there.

The Devil in Details a.k.a AI Bias Driving Stock Trading Bots


Nothing can give jittery experience than a stock market meltdown to an investor, trading with the best possible bets. History is ripe with such examples and there is very much probability that they will repeat, for different reasons though. Trading in stocks is more than a guessing game, now partially taken over by bots, not even sparing the well-grounded players at Wall-street. It was robotic trading that caused the famous stock market crash of 1987 when Dow Jones plunged to 22.6%. Like with any technology, AI has its teething problems with fintech.

Artificial intelligence and robotics uncover hidden signatures of Parkinson's disease


NEW YORK, NY (March 25, 2022) – A study published today in Nature Communications unveils a new platform for discovering cellular signatures of disease that integrates robotic systems for studying patient cells with artificial intelligence methods for image analysis. Using their automated cell culture platform, scientists at the NYSCF Research Institute collaborated with Google Research to successfully identify new cellular hallmarks of Parkinson's disease by creating and profiling over a million images of skin cells from a cohort of 91 patients and healthy controls. "Traditional drug discovery isn't working very well, particularly for complex diseases like Parkinson's," noted NYSCF CEO Susan L. Solomon, JD. "The robotic technology NYSCF has built allows us to generate vast amounts of data from large populations of patients, and discover new signatures of disease as an entirely new basis for discovering drugs that actually work." "This is an ideal demonstration of the power of artificial intelligence for disease research," added Marc Berndl, Software Engineer at Google Research. "We have had a very productive collaboration with NYSCF, especially because their advanced robotic systems create reproducible data that can yield reliable insights."
