Why Knowledge Graphs May Fuel AI Development

#artificialintelligence

Begin with a single use case, linking just a few data sets and reports, and add data and links to it organically so that it's a dynamic structure. Once you have a use case, identify the content you'll need and classify it according to a taxonomy. While you can refer to industry standard taxonomies for ideas, invest the time to make the taxonomy meaningful for your organization and understand how users organize their information. Buying taxonomies out of the box or contracting a consultant to do it for you is bound to lead to problems. The organizing structure becomes even more powerful -- an ontology -- when you use semantic indexing to replace users' own words with synonyms to better understand what they mean.


Your AI May Be Ethical, But Is It Prudent?

#artificialintelligence

Do you remember a story about an irate father who marched into a Target to complain that his teenage daughter received maternity coupons, only to find out a few days later that she was pregnant? The story came from a 2012 New York times article and it signaled the arrival of predictive analytics. Despite reasonable skepticism over whether the story was real, it helped initiate an ethical debate over consumer privacy that has only intensified. Today, we live in a world with more powerful predictive capabilities and more personal data to be leveraged. We've reached an era in which AI can do more than out a teenage pregnancy.


How AI Can Help Us Prepare for the Second Wave – Thought Leaders

#artificialintelligence

In order for countries to plan how to successfully restart their economies, a new data model -- one based on AI -- is needed. So far, existing data science models haven't done the best job at predicting the ease of transmission of COVID-19, the extent of its development, potential for mutation, and outbreaks in new hot spots. Many were developed in a rush, with flawed data based on limited testing capacity. An AI model, however, would be adaptive, built to scale, and automated, crunching together sociological, economic, and health data to enable economies to reopen successfully should another wave occur. The data used in this model should be both accurate and statistically significant.
