Deep Learning & AI is getting better but can regular users pay?


In this article, we will look at the development of AI and the field of deep learning. Deep learning originated in the era of vacuum tube computers. In 1958, Frank Rosenblatt of Cornell University designed the first artificial neural network. This was later named "deep learning". Rosenblatt knew that this technology surpassed the computing power at that time.

Liquid Robots: Is It A Marketing Gimmick or the Future of Automation?


The concept of liquid robots promises to be transformative for robotics and automation in multiple ways. One of them involves the reduced consumption of power to keep such robots running. Over the decades, robots have become progressively smaller in size. After humanoid robots brought the convenience of robotics and automation into smart homes, the emergence of tiny swarm robots and nanobots made cognitive automation more flexible and efficient. Now, the arrival of malleable liquid robots brings robotics into new and unchartered territory.

Quantum computing & artificial intelligence: 10 things you should know


In recent years, emerging technologies have become prominent. Amongst them, quantum computing has a singular potential to change our world the most. Quantum computing has shown promising evidence to speed up heuristic computations in an incredible manner. Thus, applying quantum computing within complex solutions to address problems in pharmaceuticals and materials discovery, finance, autonomous vehicle applications, artificial intelligence, and other areas will have a significant impact on our lives. In particular, quantum computing has the potential to magnify the effects (both positives and negatives) of many AI applications.

InsultBot: an artificial intelligence-based system for moderating online comments


Live app here, just try to insult it! "The Conversation AI team, a research initiative founded by Jigsaw and Google (both a part of Alphabet) are working on tools to help improve online conversation. One area of focus is the study of negative online behaviors, like toxic comments (i.e. So far they've built a range of publicly available models served through the Perspective API, including toxicity. But the current models still make errors, and they don't allow users to select which types of toxicity they're interested in finding (e.g. "Have you been online lately, it is pretty toxic" Andrew Marantz It is not unknown the limitations from current AI: well-known limitations are called "shallowness", name from "The Shallowness of Google Translate". I have a rich set of discussions on my book "Computational Thinking": feel free to grab and copy and come to me for discussions. Current best AI systems cannot understand human subtlety. They are "shallow": see just the obvious. This is known on translations, and other areas. "You are NOT a whore" -, insult, obscene, toxicity (wrong) Without the negative, it works as wanted. The issue is: we know as human that the negative can even be a compliment! Even though, I would know recommend it! "Mr Pires, what you said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I ever heard.

Alexa, how did Amazon's wrong call on voice assistants tee up a $10bn loss? John Naughton

The Guardian

Intrigued by an Ars Technica post about Amazon's Alexa that suggested all was not well in the tech company's division that looks after its smart home devices, I went rooting in a drawer where the Echo Dot I bought years ago had been gathering dust. Having found it, and set it up to join the upgraded wifi network that hadn't existed when I first got it, I asked it a question: "Alexa, why are you such a loss-maker?" To which she calmly replied: "This might answer your question: mustard gas, also known as Lost, is manufactured by the United States." At which point, I solemnly thanked her, pulled the power cable and returned her to the drawer, where she will continue to gather dust until I can think of an ecologically responsible way of recycling her. I bought the device on 5 December 2016 (on the basis that one shouldn't pontificate on kit that one hasn't purchased oneself) and wrote about it in January 2017.

How to Create and Delete SQL Database on Azure Cloud


To implement data analysis, database handling, and machine learning, data science is super easy and flexible on the cloud. In this article, we will try to create and delete the SQL database with the below simple steps. We can also use Create a Resource and find the SQL database. Even if the logo doesn't show up then, go to See more all services and then go to the database option and click on the SQL Database. To host the database, we need a server, after clicking on the create server, we need to fill in the information for the SQL server and click the ok button.

Artificial intelligence can potentially predict a patient's response to cancer treatment


The study was groundbreaking, not only for the deep-learning predictability, but also because it allowed researchers to see what the model learned about the immune system. "DeepTCR's predictive power is exciting," said Dr. John-William Sidhom, first author of the study, "but what I found more fascinating is that we were able to view what the model learned about the immune system's response to immunotherapy." He also mentioned the great potential for creating future medications with the information. "We can now exploit that information to develop more robust models, and possibly better treatment approaches, for many diseases, even those outside of oncology." DeepTCR was developed by Dr. Sidhom while he was an M.D./Ph.D student at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

GDPR and the AI Act interplay: Lessons from FPF's ADM Case-Law Report - Future of Privacy Forum


In May 2022, the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) launched a comprehensive Report analyzing case-law under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applied to real-life cases involving Automated Decision-Making (ADM). Our research highlighted that the GDPR's protections for individuals against forms of ADM and profiling go significantly beyond Article 22 – which provides for the right of individuals not to be subject to decisions based solely on automated processing that produces legal effects or significantly impacts them, and are currently being applied by courts and Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) alike. These range from detailed transparency obligations to applying the fairness principle to avoid situations of discrimination and strict conditions for valid consent in ADM cases. As EU lawmakers are now discussing the amendments they would like to include in the European Commission (EC)'s Artificial Intelligence (AI) Act Proposal, what lessons can be drawn from GDPR enforcement precedents–as outlined in the Report–when deciding on the scope and obligations of the Act? This blog will explore: the link between the GDPR's provisions as relevant for ADM and the AI Act Proposal (1); how the AI Act's concepts of providers and users fare compared to the GDPR's controllers and processors (2); how the AI Act facilitates GDPR compliance for the deployers of AI systems (3); the opportunities to enhance or clarify obligations under the AI Act through the lens of ADM jurisprudence (4); the overlaps between GDPR enforcement precedents and the AI Act's prohibited practices or high-risk use cases (5); the issue of redress under the GDPR and the AI Act (6); and a compilation of lessons learned from the FPF Report in the context of the debates around the AI Act (7). Note: when referring to case numbers in this blog, the author is using the numbering of cases in the FPF Report.

End to End Data Science Life Cycle


Information is the oil of the 21st century, and analytics is the combustion engine -- Peter Sondergaard (Senior Vice President and Global Head of Research at Gartner, Inc.) Data science is all about asking interesting questions based on the data you have or often the data you don't have -- Sarah Jarvis (Director of Applied Machine Learning and Data Science at Secondmind) The world we are living in right now is in the era of huge databases. We are living in a digital age where our lifestyle generates more and more data. This data is produced from different sources like Apps, Websites, Smart Devices etc. So, all of this raw data is stored in various Databases. Storing the data doesn't make any sense unless it is used properly for generating insights from the data which helps us to solve various Business problems. With the increasing demand for this field, it is extremely important for us to understand different stages in the life cycle of a Data Science project from End-To-End.
