Join Tandem Innovation Alliance on Thursday, May 11th at WeWork in Tysons, VA for an evening devoted to understanding the impact of artificial intelligence and the future it holds for the government and startups. We have invited investors, industry leaders and government officials as part of our ongoing event series focusing on artificial intelligence and machine learning. This evening we will focus on the areas where the government is investing in A.I. programs to modernize federal agencies and where startups can fit in. Learn about where they want to invest and the new contracting mechanisms agencies are using to recruit startups and small businesses. Following the panel, Tandem will select companies that feature exciting new A.I. technologies to provide lightning pitches to offer insight into the next great innovations that could transform the industry.
I think many people imagine that AI will solve open-ended problems, but with our current technology they will only do well when designed for more constrained conditions. I don't think AI is going to replace the service industry anytime soon. But it could replace the tasks that are easiest to automate (I rarely go to banks because I can cash checks with my phone). The iPhone's is successful because it kicked off the design trend of assuming most things the user wanted, and designing for ease of use rather than customization first. For IoT, can we expect people to take the time to customize/train their AIs?
SAP S/4HANA is the start to get your company to the next level of Enterprise Resourcing Planning. Modernizing your ERP provides the foundation to connect your data, automate key functions, and constantly improve your products & services. With Machine Learning capabilities embedded, the SAP S/4HANA becomes intelligent and jobs becomes more dynamic and predictive, routine tasks are automated.
The Guardian is right to express legitimate concerns about the opacity of machine learning systems and attempts to replicate what humans do best (Editorial, 23 September), and we welcome this. However, as founders of the Institute for Ethical AI in Education (IEAIED) we believe these problems must be overcome in order to ensure people are able to benefit from artificial intelligence, not just fear it. There are highly beneficial applications of machine learning. In education, for example, this innovation will enable personalised learning for all and is already enabling individualised learning support for increasing numbers of students. Well-designed AI can be used to identify learners' particular needs so that everyone – especially the most vulnerable – can receive targeted support.
