How human biases can slip into machine learning

#artificialintelligence

"If you train a machine learning algorithm on real data from the world we live in, it will pick up on these biases," Sharp wrote. "And to make matters worse, such algorithms have the potential to perpetuate or even exacerbate these biases when deployed."


Artificial intelligence vs. human intelligence: how do they measure up?

#artificialintelligence

There's no denying that artificial intelligence is lightyears ahead of what it was just a few years ago. The technology continues to advance at an ever-increasing rate. But the ultimate goal of artificial intelligence researchers is to replicate human intelligence. So how do artificial intelligence and human intelligence measure up? The so-called "deep learning" that artificial intelligence is capable of isn't really the type of profound learning like humans are capable of.


Machine Learning for CEOs

#artificialintelligence

When I worked as a McKinsey consultant, I served the CEO of a bank regarding his small business strategy. I wanted to run regressions on the bank's data but I was advised against it: "They don't even understand statistics. How are you going to explain a regression to them?". CEOs have always needed to deeply understand human intelligence and emotion to manage enterprise teams. Now machines and algorithms are increasingly becoming part of these very teams.


Watch This AI Algorithm Change Humans into Animorphs

#artificialintelligence

While the field of AI-generated imagery is still relatively new and often thrilling (or terrifying), much of what's coming out of research labs now is incremental improvements on already-existing technology. It feels like every week some institution puts out a new, slightly improved algorithm or pushes a whitepaper to arXiv and it's another dancing skeleton or Mona Lisa moving her lips all weird. And then, sometimes, you get something that machine learning engineers and fans of the Animorphs books can all get excited about. That's what educator and AI researcher Xander Steenbrugge has done, with a series of AI models that morph humans into animals and back again. Like many image style transfer creations, this one was made using generative adversarial networks, or GANs, which "learn" from a training dataset and then try to turn a target image into the source you feed it.
