The new partnership comes as its members increasingly use artificial intelligence to compete with one another in categories such as consumer electronics and business productivity software. It appears to be aimed, at least in part, at dispelling and defusing public concerns about artificial intelligence, a phrase that often inspires both rational and irrational fears. The rational ones include the prospect of economic dislocation and loss of jobs, while irrational ones--or at least premature ones--embrace science-fiction scenarios, in which robots rule the earth or society confronts the so-called singularity.
One of the biggest challenges that companies face as they try to improve their learning & development programs is time. With today's technology, L&D professionals can get granular data on how learners interact with content, what resonates and what does not. That information is a goldmine for refining L&D strategies and making training more efficient and effective. However, manually sifting through data and updating content can be too time consuming an endeavor to undertake. Artificial intelligence tools are the answer to this problem.
Leica Microsystems of Wetzlar, Germany, markets Digital Image Hub Enterprise, its clinical workflow software for digital pathology. It provides image management, integration, and communication capabilities in conjunction with the client viewer, SlidePath Gateway. Digital Image Hub Enterprise utilizes slide barcodes to identify and automatically consolidate multiple slides within a case into a work list. Pathologists can also view their digital slides through internet browsers and on an iPad, allowing access anytime and anywhere.
Much has been written, and rightly so, about the potential that artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to create and promote misinformation. But there is a less well-recognized but equally important application for AI in helping to detect misinformation and limit its spread. This dual role will be particularly important in geopolitics, which is closely tied to how governments shape and react to public opinion both within and beyond their borders. And it is important for another reason as well: While nation-state interest in information is certainly not new, the incorporation of AI into the information ecosystem is set to accelerate as machine learning and related technologies experience continued advances. The present article explores the intersection of AI and information integrity in the specific context of geopolitics.
