28 Best Quotes About Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

When it comes to the possibilities and possible perils of artificial intelligence (AI), learning and reasoning by machines without the intervention of humans, there are lots of opinions out there. "Anything that could give rise to smarter-than-human intelligence--in the form of Artificial Intelligence, brain-computer interfaces, or neuroscience-based human intelligence enhancement - wins hands down beyond contest as doing the most to change the world. Follow that out further to, say, 2045, we will have multiplied the intelligence, the human biological machine intelligence of our civilization a billion-fold." It's really an attempt to understand human intelligence and human cognition."


Healthcare Robots and the Right to Privacy

VideoLectures.NET

The latter is, due to its importance, protected not only by national health legislations, yet also by Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, Right to privacy. As already mentioned, medicine is a profession that requires a certain level of maintenance of secrecy of confidential information and according to the previous Court's decisions the secrecy is even more important in cases that involves psychiatric records. The robots' involvement in medical treatments on one hand and easy access to the information they gain during the treatment on the other, bring into question the effectiveness of the provisions of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Current legislations in countries around the world do not put much attention on this particular area, even though the modern robotic approaches have already been introduced and also very well accepted.


Amazon set to enter US drug store market

Daily Mail

There is speculation that such a move could see the online retailer selling prescription medicines direct to consumers. 'I wouldn't be surprised to see them partner with a pharmacy home delivery company first. The company has tried to enter the health care market previously in the late 1990s when it partnered up with Drugstore.com, Rumours about Amazon having its sights set on health care began earlier this year when its voice-enabled personal assistant, Alexa, was heavily showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show. Amazon made a deal made earlier this year with WebMD which saw Alexa gain the ability to provide peer-reviewed medical information when asked by an Echo, Echo Dot and Fire TV user.


Parley 'SnotBot' expedition brings machine learning and artificial intelligence to whale research - IT Peer Network

#artificialintelligence

In more than five years with Intel Labs, I've had the good fortune to be involved with a team of extremely bright people focused on researching large-scale machine learning and data mining techniques. This week's Parley SnotBot expedition, parts of which will be captured live by National Geographic, will build on the work being done by the Mind's Eye Lab, a research initiative arising out of a collaboration between Intel Labs and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. Applied to drone video, machine learning can learn and remove the distortions caused by water, bringing out whale color patterns, speckling, and shape. While this week's expedition focuses on humpback whales, the same technologies can be applied to other animals to generate deeper insights than would be possible even with direct observations in the field.


Artificial Intelligence Finally Gets Governance, Former Healthcare CFO Leads the Initiative – American Institute of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

In response to the rising global concerns about artificial intelligence, Washington DC area based American Institute of Artificial Intelligence has pioneered a multidimensional and comprehensive governance framework and product for artificial intelligence governance. The American Institute of Artificial Intelligence is announcing the launch of the world's first and most comprehensive Artificial Intelligence Governance Model and product. With the goals of safety and equity – our governance model is designed to be the world's first and most comprehensive governance platform for artificial intelligence To address public concerns, improve safety of humans, create transparency, and achieve social good and regulatory compliance, the model can be used by different types of entities including small, medium and large companies, government agencies, institutions and others. With the goals of safety and equity – our governance model is designed to be the world's first and most comprehensive governance platform for artificial intelligence," he added.


Lasers reactivate 'lost' memories in mice with Alzheimer's

New Scientist

They genetically engineered mice with neurons that glow yellow when activated during memory storage, and red when activated during memory recall. But in the Alzheimer's mice, different cells glowed red during recall, suggesting that they were calling up the wrong memories. Using a genetic engineering technique called optogenetics, Denny's team went on to reactivate the lemon-shock memory in the Alzheimer's mice. The next step will be to confirm that the same memory storage and retrieval mechanisms exist in people with Alzheimer's disease, because mouse models do not perfectly reflect the condition in humans, says Martins.

AI and Deep Learning, Explained Simply

#artificialintelligence

AI trained to win at poker games learned to bluff, handling missing and potentially fake, misleading information. Machine learning (ML), a subset of AI, make machines learn from experience, from examples of the real world: the more the data, the more it learns. Each method might make different errors, so averaging their results can win, at times, over single methods. So it should be the "smaller" AI to claim that the human brain as not real intelligence, but only brute force computation.
