AI speakers play growing role in daily life of Japan's seniors and disabled

The Japan Times

Smart speakers with artificial intelligence technology are increasingly being employed to help older people or those with disabilities in their daily lives, with their voice-activated functionalities proving especially convenient for those with mobility issues or wanting to connect. The daily routine of Katsunori Endo, a 63-year-old resident of Yamagata Prefecture, includes greeting his AI speaker and asking for the day's weather and news. "It's convenient because it tells me the weather for specific regions," Endo said, adding that it will also tell him what happened on a particular day in history, or alert him to seasonal dates. Developed by e-commerce giant Amazon.com Inc., Alexa is a smart speaker capable of performing a plethora of tasks in response to voice commands, including providing real-time information and controlling several other smart devices as a home automation system.

Gartner Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2020

Human augmentation conjures up visions of futuristic cyborgs, but humans have been augmenting parts of the body for hundreds of years. Glasses, hearing aids and prosthetics evolved into cochlear implants and wearables. Even laser eye surgery has become commonplace. But what if scientists could augment the brain to increase memory storage, or implant a chip to decode neural patterns? What if exoskeletons became a standard uniform for autoworkers, enabling them to lift superhuman weights?

The Rise of Chatbots

#artificialintelligence

Good customer service is an integral element to the success of any business. With the rise in mobile devices over the last decade, chatbots are increasingly becoming a popular option to interact with users. The popularity of chatbots and their adoption is rapidly increasing as they enable businesses to provide real-time customer service in many e-commerce settings. Let us explore the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Natural Language Processing (NLP), and chatbots for customer service. A chatbot is an AI-based software that interacts with a user through either text or audio.


CHIRPS: Explaining random forest classification

#artificialintelligence

Modern machine learning methods typically produce "black box" models that are opaque to interpretation. Yet, their demand has been increasing in the Human-in-the-Loop processes, that is, those processes that require a human agent to verify, approve or reason about the automated decisions before they can be applied. To facilitate this interpretation, we propose Collection of High Importance Random Path Snippets (CHIRPS); a novel algorithm for explaining random forest classification per data instance. CHIRPS extracts a decision path from each tree in the forest that contributes to the majority classification, and then uses frequent pattern mining to identify the most commonly occurring split conditions. Then a simple, conjunctive form rule is constructed where the antecedent terms are derived from the attributes that had the most influence on the classification.


LinkedIn's 50 Best Startups To Work For In 2020

#artificialintelligence

These and other insights are from LinkedIn's Top Startups 2020: The 50 U.S. companies on the rise published today. This is the 4th annual LinkedIn list of the hottest startups to work for. The list is determined by the billions of actions taken by LinkedIn's 706 million members. The annual list is a reflection of how business and work is evolving through the pandemic, what industries are emerging and growing and where people want to work now, reflecting the current state of the economy and the world. Even in the face of Covid-19, the startups on this year's list are all still innovating and experiencing growth and the majority of the companies on the list are currently hiring, with 3,000 jobs now open on LinkedIn. To be eligible for the list, a company must be independent and privately held, have at least 50 employees, be seven years old or younger, be headquartered in the country on the list which they appear and have a minimum of 15% employee growth over the time period. The top 50 U.S. startups include the following: Full-time headcount: 4,000 Headquarters: New York City Year founded: 2016 What you should know: While the U.S. economy quickly sank into a recession at the start of the pandemic, one of its engines has been roaring: housing.

Infer Genetic Disease From Your Face - DeepGestalt can accurately identify some rare genetic disorders using a photograph of a patient's face. This could lead to payers and employers potentially analyzing facial images and discriminating against individuals who have pre-existing conditions or developing medical complications.


Artificial Intelligence Is Ready For Prime Time, But Needs Full Executive Support – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

Finally, AI is ready for the mainstream. When your enterprise is handling transactions between 25 million sellers and 182 million buyers, supporting 1.5 billion listings, manual decision-making processes just won't cut. Such is the case with eBay, the mega commerce site, that has been employing artificial intelligence for more than a decade. As Forbes contributor Bernard Marr points out, eBay employs AI across a broad range of functions, "in personalization, search, insights, discovery and its recommendation systems along with computer vision, translation, natural language processing and more." As part of a massive operation with so much experience with AI, Mazen Rawashdeh, CTO of eBay, has plenty to say about the current state of enterprise AI.


An Introduction to AI

#artificialintelligence

I am Imtiaz Adam, and this article is an introduction to AI key terminologies and methodologies on behalf of myself and DLS (www.dls.ltd). This article has been updated in September 2020 to take into account advances in the field of AI with techniques such as NeuroSymbolic AI, Neuroevolution and Federated Learning. AI deals with the area of developing computing systems which are capable of performing tasks that humans are very good at, for example recognising objects, recognising and making sense of speech, and decision making in a constrained environment. Narrow AI: the field of AI where the machine is designed to perform a single task and the machine gets very good at performing that particular task. However, once the machine is trained, it does not generalise to unseen domains. This is the form of AI that we have today, for example Google Translate.
