Technology: Facial recognition is on the rise – but the law is lagging a long way behind

#artificialintelligence

Melbourne/Canberra: Private companies and public authorities are quietly using facial recognition systems around Australia. Despite the growing use of this controversial technology, there is little in the way of specific regulations and guidelines to govern its use. Spying on shoppers We were reminded of this fact recently when consumer advocates at CHOICE revealed that major retailers in Australia are using the technology to identify people claimed to be thieves and troublemakers. There is no dispute about the goal of reducing harm and theft. But there is also little transparency about how this technology is being used.


Threat Intelligence Best-Practice Tips

#artificialintelligence

A lot of people say threat intelligence (TI) tastes good, but few understand how to cook it. There are even fewer of those who know which processes to engage for TI to work and bring profit. Moreover, a negligible number of people know how to choose a feed provider, where to check a false positives indicator, and whether it's worthwhile to block a domain that your colleague has sent you over WhatsApp. We had two commercial APT subscriptions, ten information exchanges, about a dozen free feeds, and an extensive list of TOR exit nodes. We also used a couple of powerful reversers, master Powershell scripts, a Loki scanner and a paid VirusTotal subscription.


Machine Learning to Enable Positive Change An Interview with Adam Benzion

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning can enable positive change in society, says Adam Benzion, Chief Experience Officer at Edge Impulse. Read on to learn how the company is preventing unethical uses of its ML/AI development platform. Priscilla Haring-Kuipers: What Ethics in Electronics are you are working on? Adam Benzion: At Edge Impulse, we try to connect our work to doing good in the world as a core value to our culture and operating philosophy. Our founders, Zach Shelby and Jan Jongboom define this as "Machine learning can enable positive change in society, and we are dedicated to support applications for good."


AI is transforming medicine: Here's how we make sure it works for everyone

#artificialintelligence

We are excited to bring Transform 2022 back in-person July 19 and virtually July 20 - 28. Join AI and data leaders for insightful talks and exciting networking opportunities. What if your doctor could instantly test dozens of different treatments to discover the perfect one for your body, your health and your values? In my lab at Stanford University School of Medicine, we are working on artificial intelligence (AI) technology to create a "digital twin": a virtual representation of you based on your medical history, genetic profile, age, ethnicity, and a host of other factors like whether you smoke and how much you exercise. If you're sick, the AI can test out treatment options on this computerized twin, running through countless different scenarios to predict which interventions will be most effective. Instead of choosing a treatment regimen based on what works for the average person, your doctor can develop a plan based on what works for you.


AI in Biotechnology

#artificialintelligence

The term may also be applied to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind such as learning and problem-solving. The ideal characteristic of artificial intelligence is its ability to rationalize and take actions that have the best chance of achieving a specific goal. A subset of artificial intelligence is machine learning, which refers to the concept that computer programs can automatically learn from and adapt to new data without being assisted by humans. Deep learning techniques enable this automatic learning through the absorption of huge amounts of unstructured data such as text, images, or video. At its simplest, biotechnology is technology based on biology -- biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet. We have used the biological processes of microorganisms for more than 6,000 years to make useful food products, such as bread and cheese, and to preserve dairy products. Biotechnology can be categorized into a few types agricultural biotechnology, medical biotechnology, animal biotechnology, industrial biotechnology, and bioinformatics. Let us see how Artificial Intelligence is impacting these branches of biotechnology.

Artificial Intelligence promises cost savings, a competitive edge, and a foothold into the future for the business. While AI adoption is on the rise the level of investment is often not in line with the monetary returns. The right data architecture is essential to AI success. This article will show you how. Only 26% of AI projects are currently being implemented in widespread production within an organization.


Know this before starting a career in ML/AI….

#artificialintelligence

The human mind is one of the most uncanny objects to exist in the entire universe. It can perceive the environment by the simple process of visualization. This visualization enables the human mind to recollect events and uses it as an inspiration to define future events. Without this ability, we are doomed as living beings as our ability to decide the next move based on past events ceases to exist. Similarly, we are surrounded by facts and statistics, basic mathematics which is generally used for setting a reference or for analysis purposes.


Deep Neural networks

#artificialintelligence

Did you ever wonder how your snap-chat camera, accurately fits sunglasses to your eyes, how a whole web page translate to another language in a matter of seconds. Artificial neural networks are the theory behind this extra-ordinary creations. Deep neural networks are the artificial intelligence functions that imitate the workings of human brain in processing data and creating patterns for use in decision making. Human brain is made up of connected networks of neurons, artificial neural networks seek to simulate these networks and get computers to act like interconnected brain cells, so that they can learn and make decisions like humans. Artificial neural network has minimum three layers, as input layer, hidden layer and output layer.


Leaders in Tech on Redesigning Workflow with AI

#artificialintelligence

What is it's the most common use word. At least you know you will find companies talking about that. What is automation for a product company like yours Jennifer Shore. It's it's great to see life people in three days. So if I could take a step back and say what is it terrorists do. So we are literally solving one of the world's hardest problems right now which is focusing on transparency in the global supply chain. And so what's happened that we've all just lived through in the last two and a half years is that every company in the world got very swiftly educated how connected they were to each other. And they also realized very very quickly that the way they had been looking at risk in their supply chain was manual right. It was with you know you think about when you onboard a new supplier or vendor you Google. You look it up and say oh is that good or bad. Well whether it's a ship going sideways in a canal whether it's the unfortunate situation with the Ukraine Russia and the 3000 global sanctions against Russia and no one knows if they're doing business with Russia or not. So when you think about this digital transformation there has been a swift uptick in our industry because CEOs and boards are realizing that understanding risk and the transparency in their supply chain is tied to their bottom line.


Can Tech Help Reset Our Expectations?: Packback, Inquiry-Based Learning and the Power of AI

#artificialintelligence

Kids walk into kindergarten with big dreams for themselves -- writing their names, making friends, and if they're lucky, maybe even learning about new species of dinosaurs. Though they may not express it this way, young children see school as the key to unlocking their potential, the first step to becoming an astronaut, a veterinarian, a firefighter or whatever they aspire to be when they grow up. Their families, too, have high hopes for what the next 13 years will bring, counting on educators to prepare their children for the future cognitively, socially and emotionally. But unfortunately in many classrooms across the U.S., these kids and their families discover that the education system's goals for them are much less ambitious than their own. Throughout elementary school, then into middle and high school, students are guided to academic milestones that are simply too low, targets that should be baselines rather than ceilings.
