AI pioneer Fei-Fei Li sees a path for you in her field

#artificialintelligence

Stanford professor Fei-Fei Li is a pioneer in artificial intelligence. Her research helped lead to breakthroughs like allowing computers to recognize images. Now, AI has spread to every economic sector. This episode, hear Fei-Fei's thoughts on how humans can play a compassionate role in shaping AI's future. Plus, Caroline Fairchild brings reporting on some surprising jobs in this emerging industry. JESSI HEMPEL: From the editorial team at LinkedIn, I'm Jessi Hempel, and this is Hello Monday, a show where I investigate the changing nature of work, and how that work is changing us. Last year, I got to test-drive a self-driving car, which of course means I got to sit behind the wheel and not drive. In this one test, a human-size dummy walked out onto the track, imitating a pedestrian, jaywalking. SELF-DRIVING CAR TAPE: So here it comes...so we pass this trigger…do we see him? The car saw the pedestrian and slowed down to let him pass. This is just one of the many, many things that have become possible now that computers can recognize images. That's why this week, I wanted to talk to Fei-Fei Li.


Intel CEO Brian Krzanich will discuss the future of artificial intelligence and more at Disrupt SF

#artificialintelligence

The topic of AI has been a primary focus for Intel's Brian Krzanich, as he works to expand the chipmaker's scope from PCs to the next generation of technology breakthroughs. Intel's Chief Executive will be joining us on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2017 in September to discuss the company's recent massive investments in AI, from multibillion dollar acquisitions to the formation of the Artificial Intelligence Products Group, which reports directly to Krzanich. Intel's CEO has been extremely bullish about forward facing technologies since taking the helm in 2013. Along with AI, under Krzanich's watch, the silicon juggernaut has become a leader in developing the underlying technologies that power 5G networks, self-driving cards, drones and cloud computing. It marks a strong contrast from the Intel Krzanich inherited as chief, which was still reeling from a failure to fully embrace mobile.


Podcast: Law and Ethics of Artificial Intelligence - Future of Life Institute

#artificialintelligence

The rise of artificial intelligence presents not only technical challenges, but important legal and ethical challenges for society, especially regarding machines like autonomous weapons and self-driving cars. To discuss these issues, I interviewed Matt Scherer and Ryan Jenkins. Matt is an attorney and legal scholar whose scholarship focuses on the intersection between law and artificial intelligence. Ryan is an assistant professor of philosophy and a senior fellow at the Ethics and Emerging Sciences group at California Polytechnic State, where he studies the ethics of technology. In this podcast, we discuss accountability and transparency with autonomous systems, government regulation vs. self-regulation, fake news, and the future of autonomous systems.


Artificial intelligence could 'evolve faster than the human race'

#artificialintelligence

A sinister threat is brewing deep inside the technology laboratories of Silicon Valley, according to Professor Stephen Hawking. Artificial Intelligence, disguised as helpful digital assistants and self-driving vehicles, is gaining a foothold, and it could one day spell the end for mankind. The world-renowned professor has warned robots could evolve faster than humans and their goals will be unpredictable. Professor Stephen Hawking (pictured) claimed AI would be difficult to stop if the appropriate safeguards are not in place. During a talk in Cannes, Google's chairman Eric Schmidt said AI will be developed for the benefit of humanity and there will be systems in place in case anything goes awry.
