Ms. Patwardhan highlighted that biometrics and digital identity can "One rolls its eyes cutely while greeting customers and the other "Has anyone watched Black Mirror?" she asked.

Information Markets for Social Participation in Public Policy Design and Implementation

AAAI Conferences

In this paper we propose a research agenda on the use of information markets as tools to collect, aggregate and analyze citizens’ opinions, expectations and preferences from social media in order to support public policy design and implementation. We argue that markets are institutional settings able to efficiently allocate scarce resources, aggregate and disseminate information into prices and accommodate hedging against various types of risks. We discuss various types of information markets, as well as address the participation of both human and computational agents in such markets.


Why Our Conversations on Artificial Intelligence Are Incomplete

#artificialintelligence

There is an urgent need to expand the AI epistemic community beyond the specific geographies in which it is currently clustered. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer the subject of science fiction and is profoundly transforming our daily lives. While computers have already been mimicking human intelligence for some decades now using logic and if-then kind of rules, massive increases in computational power are now facilitating the creation of'deep learning' machines i.e. algorithms that permit software to train itself to recognise patterns and perform tasks, like speech and image recognition, through exposure to vast amounts of data. These deep learning algorithms are everywhere, shaping our preferences and behaviour. Facebook uses a set of algorithms to tailor what news stories an individual user sees and in what order.


21 clever Alexa commands you will use again and again

FOX News

More than any other device, Alexa has become our closest approximation of artificial intelligence. She has a voice and personality, and if you ask the right question, she'll even get sassy with you. Users even refer to Alexa as "she." We usually prefer to say her name, rather than the name of the device itself, Amazon Echo. Recently, Alexa has made the news as it was reported that a Portland, Oregon couple's Echo recorded their conversation and sent it to a friend on their contact list.


How (and Where) Artificial Intelligence Is Making Its Mark in Media

#artificialintelligence

Over the last several years, artificial intelligence (AI) has shifted from being an esoteric branch of computer science to an everyday technology that most of us carry in a pocket or purse--AI is what drives Apple's Siri, Facebook's photo-tagging, Spotify playlists and Google's auto-complete, just for starters. But can we also expect that someday soon AI will report and write the important news of the day--and technology stories like this one? Well, guess what: It already has. First, a bit of background: Many of the most exciting AI advances are driven by research in cognitive computing and natural language generation (NLG) processing, which allow computers to analyze massive quantities of data and generate a plain English document that highlights the most important insights. Those advances are made stronger through deep learning, a field of AI that uses neural networks to teach computers to sift through massive amounts of data to find their own patterns.
