Amazon's new Alexa feature uses AI to create animated kids' stories on Echo Show • TechCrunch


Amazon announced today the launch of "Create with Alexa," a new AI tool for kids that generates animated stories. The company first revealed the feature in September. "Create with Alexa" launched in the U.S. today, November 29, across supported Echo Show devices and is available in English. To craft a story, a child says, "Alexa, make a story," and then answers prompts, the company explains in its blog post. The child selects from three themes: "space exploration," "underwater" or "enchanted forest," and then chooses the story's hero, a color scheme and adjectives like "silly," "happy" or "mysterious."

Anyscale updates streamline cloud scaling for AI and ML developers - SiliconANGLE


Distributed computing startup Anyscale Inc. said at AWS re:Invent today it's introducing a number of updates to its platform aimed at making Python-based artificial intelligence and machine learning workload development and scaling easier for developers. Anyscale is the company behind the open-source Python framework Ray, which is used to run distributed computing projects. Ray includes both a universal serverless compute application programming interface and an expanded ecosystem of libraries. They enable developers to build scalable applications that can run on multicloud platforms without needing to worry about the underlying infrastructure. One of the key advantages of Ray is it eliminates the need for in-house distributed computing expertise.

Philips Launches AI-Enabled 'Visualization Workspace' at RSNA


Emphasizing a variety of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and workflows across multiple imaging modalities and disciplines on one platform, Philips launched a new edition of the Advanced Visualization Workspace at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual conference in Chicago. With the goals of streamlined radiology workflows and improved diagnostic confidence, the Advanced Visualization Workspace provides a suite of enhanced imaging options with more than 70 clinical applications for radiology, oncology, neurology, and cardiology, according to the company. "At this year's RSNA, Philips will showcase how our informatics solutions use intelligence to provide patient-centric insights, integrate advanced visualization tools into the workflow and support clinical collaboration to speed up detection of diseases by leveraging intelligence everywhere along the patient care journey," noted Reema Poddar, the president of Diagnostic and Pathway Informatics at Philips.

Anyscale unveils new tool for building and scaling AI and ML development


Check out the on-demand sessions from the Low-Code/No-Code Summit to learn how to successfully innovate and achieve efficiency by upskilling and scaling citizen developers. Scaling the resources needed for machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) workloads can be a complex task. The need to reliably scale development resources for ML training is critically important as organizations are building more models -- many of which never actually make it into production. A Gartner report released in August 2022 found that only 54% of AI models move from the pilot phase into production. Among the many tools that organizations can use to scale AI and ML projects and potentially get more models into production is with the open-source Ray framework, which hit its 2.0 milestone in August.

What is Open AI and What Does It Do? - Fronty


OpenAI is a non-profit research organization dedicated to developing and applying artificial intelligence (AI) for the benefit of humanity as a whole. Elon Musk and Sam Altman founded the company in 2015, headquartered in San Francisco, California. OpenAI was founded partly due to its founders' existential fears about the potential for a disaster caused by carelessness and misuse of general-purpose AI. The company focuses on fundamental advances in artificial intelligence and its capabilities. The company's two founders and other investors began with a $1 billion endowment. Elon Musk left the company in February 2018 due to potential conflicts with his work at Tesla, Nikola Tesla's electronics company.

FSRA launches new initiative on artificial intelligence


The Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Abu Dhabi Global Market is rolling out a new initiative to boost the development of intelligent regulatory technology (RegTech) tools and help Artificial Intelligence achieve regulatory context and understanding. The move comes amid higher usage of the new technology by financial services firms and other companies. The Open Regulation (OpenReg) initiative provides a "training ground" for industry specialists, RegTech companies and the data science community to have access to FSRA's AI models, data and research to create AI-enabled RegTech tools, ADGM said in a statement on Tuesday. "Without regulatory context, AI applications will be limited in their potential to help financial services firms navigate the regulatory landscape. In this regard, OpenReg provides the regulatory context required by firms to develop their own AI solutions," ADGM said.

AI Art Is Eating The World, And We Need To Discuss Its Wonders And Dangers


After posting the following AI-generated images, I got private replies asking the same question: "Can you tell me how you made these?" So, here I will provide the background and "how to" of creating such AI portraits, but also describe the ethical considerations and the dangers we should address right now. Generative AI – as opposed to analytical artificial intelligence – can create novel content. It not only analyzes existing datasets but it generates whole new images, text, audio, videos, and code. As the ability to generate original images based on written text emerged, it became the hottest hype in tech. It all began with the release of DALL-E 2, an improved AI art program from OpenAI.

Carestream Scientist to Discuss Role of Artificial Intelligence in Radiology at RSNA 2022


Carestream Health will demonstrate the value and impact of artificial intelligence (AI) in radiology at the upcoming Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2022 conference. "Often, imaging is the first step in making an informed diagnosis," said Luca Bogoni, Ph.D., Head of Advanced Research and Innovation at Carestream. "Carestream has been a leader in applying AI across our solutions, from image capture to processing and workflow efficiency. As we innovate, we work to support diagnostic confidence by using the power of intelligent tools." Dr. Bogoni will give a presentation entitled "Artificial Intelligence: Fueling Innovation Across the Full Arc of Carestream Solutions" on Sunday, Nov. 27, at 1:00 p.m. in the RSNA Innovation Theater.

Human creators stand to benefit as AI rewrites the rules of content creation

MIT Technology Review

Among the AI-related technologies to have emerged in the past several years is generative AI--deep-learning algorithms that allow computers to generate original content, such as text, images, video, audio, and code. And demand for such content will likely jump in the coming years--Gartner predicts that by 2025, generative AI will account for 10% of all data created, compared with 1% in 2022. "Théâtre D'opéra Spatial" is an example of AI-generated content (AIGC), created with the Midjourney text-to-art generator program. Several other AI-driven art-generating programs have also emerged in 2022, capable of creating paintings from single-line text prompts. The diversity of technologies reflects a wide range of artistic styles and different user demands.
