The Future Society

#artificialintelligence

The Future Society is a nonprofit think-and-do-tank specialized in questions of impact and governance of Artificial Intelligence and emerging technologies. We are looking for a full-time Digital Marketing Intern to join our team for 10 to 14 weeks to work on the AI Civic Forum. The Future Society addresses the profound consequences of the current technological explosion. Our mission is to advance the global governance of Artificial Intelligence and other emerging technologies. About The Future Society: Our research addresses a range of AI governance topics, including AI ethics guidelines across sectors, policy frameworks for AI adoption in developing countries, AI for UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), geopolitics of AI, AI safety risks, and more.


Robots in the Danger Zone: Exploring Public Perception through Engagement

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Public perceptions of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (RAI) are important in the acceptance, uptake, government regulation and research funding of this technology. Recent research has shown that the public's understanding of RAI can be negative or inaccurate. We believe effective public engagement can help ensure that public opinion is better informed. In this paper, we describe our first iteration of a high throughput in-person public engagement activity. We describe the use of a light touch quiz-format survey instrument to integrate in-the-wild research participation into the engagement, allowing us to probe both the effectiveness of our engagement strategy, and public perceptions of the future roles of robots and humans working in dangerous settings, such as in the off-shore energy sector. We critique our methods and share interesting results into generational differences within the public's view of the future of Robotics and AI in hazardous environments. These findings include that older peoples' views about the future of robots in hazardous environments were not swayed by exposure to our exhibit, while the views of younger people were affected by our exhibit, leading us to consider carefully in future how to more effectively engage with and inform older people.


Artificial Intelligence Breakthrough: Training and Image Recognition on Low Power CPU (with no GPU), via Explainable-AI for Smart Appliance Pilot for Bosch

#artificialintelligence

Z Advanced Computing, Inc. (ZAC), the pioneer startup on Explainable-AI (Artificial Intelligence) (XAI), is developing its Smart Home product line through a paid-pilot for Smart Appliances for BSH Home Appliances (a subsidiary of the Bosch Group, originally a joint venture between Bosch and Siemens), the largest manufacturer of home appliances in Europe and one of the largest in the world. ZAC just successfully finished its Phase 1 of the pilot program. "Our cognitive-based algorithm is more robust, resilient, consistent, and reproducible, with a higher accuracy, than Convolutional Neural Nets or GANs, which others are using now. It also requires much smaller number of training samples, compared to CNNs, which is a huge advantage," said Dr. Saied Tadayon, CTO of ZAC. "We did the entire work on a regular laptop, for both training and recognition, without any dedicated GPU. So, our computing requirement is much smaller than a typical Neural Net, which requires a dedicated GPU," continued Dr. Bijan Tadayon, CEO of ZAC.


The ethics of artificial intelligence: Issues and initiatives Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) European Parliament

#artificialintelligence

This study deals with the ethical implications and moral questions that arise from the development and implementation of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. It also reviews the guidelines and frameworks that countries and regions around the world have created to address these. It presents a comparison between the current main frameworks and the main ethical issues, and highlights gaps around mechanisms of fair benefit sharing; assigning of responsibility; exploitation of workers; energy demands in the context of environmental and climate changes; and more complex and less certain implications of AI, such as those regarding human relationships.


What's The Impact Of Artificial Intelligence And Technology On Society

#artificialintelligence

What do we need to consider about a future where artificial intelligence (AI) and tech have transformed the way we live? That was exactly what we pondered when I recently spoke withJamie Susskind, barrister, speaker and award-winning author of Future Politics: Living Together in a World Transformed by Tech. Digitization is challenging the way we live. These changes create conveniences and ways of problem-solving that were never possible before. Along with the positives, there are also challenges that need to be overcome.

Microsoft's AI for Accessibility program: empowering people with disabilities for an inclusive future of work - World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD)

#artificialintelligence

WBCSD's Future of Work project brings together the insights, innovation and influence of leading companies to develop solutions for better work – today and in the future. Our vision, in which people work to thrive, personally, professionally and as active members of society, applies to all current and potential workers. Mainstreaming inclusion and valuing diversity are therefore an essential requirement when developing business solutions that will shape the future of work. Microsoft's AI for Accessibility initiative is an example of how business can support innovations that help people with disabilities overcome barriers to equal opportunities in employment, communication and daily life. Announced in 2018, this USD $25 million grant program rewards passionate developers, startups, universities and non-profits who are building and sharing game-changing AI solutions that enable increased independence and productivity of people with disabilities.


How To Combat The Dark Side Of AI

#artificialintelligence

Imagine being thrown into a morning panic by the sound of a blaring alarm, screaming at you to take immediate shelter. Your Smart TV displays the words "AERIAL DRONE RAID" in all red, and as you attempt to rationalize what is going on, you inch towards the window in sheer disbelief as you discover a decimated cityscape. Rogue armies of drone wasps run amok in search of deviants to poison and kill, unmanned tanks obliterate anything moving on the streets and sophisticated digital twin satellites successfully cripple our electric power grid system with advanced EMP attacks. Cyber criminals have already taken advantage of the situation, broadcasting "deep fake" news of a deadly virus to cause panic and hysteria among the masses. Biohackers take it a step further, threatening to unleash an AI-manufactured strain of the flu unless the government provides them with a sizable paycheck.
