AI Plus Human Intelligence Is The Future Of Work

#artificialintelligence

We are living in interesting times, where digital assistants schedule meetings, chatbots work alongside humans as teaching assistants, and your suitcase can now become self driving luggage as showcased at CES, 2018. The implications are just starting to be felt in the workplace. In 2017, I wrote about how The Employee Experience is the Future of Work. Now, as we enter 2018, the next journey for HR leaders will be to leverage artificial intelligence combined with human intelligence and create a more personalized employee experience. As we increase our personal usage of chatbots (defined as software which provides an automated, yet personalized, conversation between itself and human users), employees will soon interact with them in the workplace as well.

Tricky IQ test leaves the internet stumped

Daily Mail

Most adults would like to think school has left them equipped for most things that life throws at them. But a particularly tricky IQ test has left internet users stumped, pushing their mathematical and linguistic skills to the limit. Jumping right in at the deep end with a complicated numerical question, the Playbuzz quiz is certainly not for the fainthearted. Try your hand at the quiz to see how you score, and scroll down to the bottom for answers (no cheating!) The comments below have not been moderated.


Truly creative A.I. is just around the corner. Here's why that's a big deal

#artificialintelligence

Joe Kennedy, father of the late President John F. Kennedy, once said that, when shoeshine boys start giving you stock tips, the financial bubble is getting too big for its own good. By that same logic, when Hollywood actors start tweeting about a once-obscure part of artificial intelligence (A.I.), you know that something big is happening, too. That's exactly what occurred recently when Zach Braff, the actor-director still best known for his performance as J.D. on the medical comedy series Scrubs, recorded himself reading a Scrubs-style monolog written by an A.I. Braff reads, adopting the thoughtful tone J.D. used to wrap up each episode in the series. "A hospital is a lot like a high school: the most amazing man is dying, and you're the only one who wants to steal stuff from his dad. Being in a hospital is a lot like being in a sorority.


Turing Questions: A Test for the Science of (Human) Intelligence

AI Magazine

There is a widespread interest among scientists in understanding a specific and well defined form of intelligence, that is human intelligence. For this reason we propose a stronger version of the original Turing test. In particular, we describe here an open-ended set of Turing questions that we are developing at the Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines at MIT -- that is questions about an image. For the Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines the main research goal is the science of intelligence rather than the engineering of intelligence -- the hardware and software of the brain rather than just absolute performance in face identification. Our Turing questions reflect fully these research priorities.


Creativity at the Metalevel

AI Magazine

Creativity is sometimes taken to be an inexplicable aspect of human activity. By summarizing a considerable body of literature on creativity, I hope to show how to turn some of the best ideas about creativity into programs that are demonstrably more creative than any we have seen to date. I believe the key to building more creative programs is to give them the ability to reflect on and modify their own frameworks and criteria. That is, I believe that the key to creativity is at the metalevel. In the AAAI-1998 Presidential Address, for example, David Waltz said that creativity is a key topic for AI research because it is an essential element of human intelligence (Waltz 1999).


Is An IQ Test An Accurate Way To Measure Intelligence?

International Business Times

The IQ test is an exam most of us are familiar with, regardless of whether we have taken it or not. The test was originally designed by the French psychologist Alfred Binet in the early 1900s. But in the new millennium, is the IQ test still an effective means of measuring general intelligence? According to the general consensus, the answer is "no." An IQ test measures a person's cognitive ability compared to the population at large.


AI Has Been Creating Music and the Results Are...Weird

#artificialintelligence

In late May, a small crowd at St. Dunstan's church in East London's Stepney district gathered for two hours of traditional Irish music. But this event was different; the tunes it featured were composed, in part, by an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm, dubbed folk-rnn, a stark reminder of how cutting-edge AI is gradually permeating every aspect of human life and culture--even creativity. Developed by researchers at Kingston University and Queen Mary University of London, folk-rnn is one of numerous projects exploring the intersection of artificial intelligence and creative arts. Folk-rnn's performance was met with a mixture of fascination, awe, and consternation at seeing soulless machines conquering something widely considered to be the exclusive domain of human intelligence. But these expeditions are discovering new ways that man and machine can cooperate.

The experts realized the transformative power of A.I., and robotics, while it also seems to be willing to tackle ethical concerns, legal issues around these new technologies and their consequences on the labor market.
