Digital content will be half 'Earth's mass' by 2245 as 'information catastrophe' looms

FOX News

Fox News Flash top headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on Digital content is on track to equal half of Earth's mass by 2245, according to new research. The research by Dr. Melvin Vopson, a senior lecturer at the U.K.'s University of Portsmouth, highlights the physics of information creation and the demands of storing vast quantities of digital data. 'FOOL'S GOLD' COULD ACTUALLY BE VALUABLE IN THIS WAY, RESEARCHERS FIND "Assuming the current growth trends in digital content continue, the world will reach a singularity point in terms of the maximum digital information possibly created and the power needs to sustain it, called the information catastrophe," Vopson writes, in a paper published in AIP Advances, the journal of the American Institute of Physics.

Countries are Demanding an International Treaty to Ban 'Killer Robots'


The report, which is a compilation of 97 countries' position on fully automated weapons, says most of them want to "retain human control over the use of force". Additionally, a growing number of policymakers, artificial intelligence experts, private companies, international and domestic organisations, and ordinary individuals have also endorsed the call to ban fully autonomous weapons. The authors explain that autonomous weapons "would decide who lives and dies, without … inherently human characteristics such as compassion that are necessary to make complex ethical choices."

Will The Next AI Be Superintelligent?


In 2005, Ray Kurzweil said, "the singularity is near." Now, AI can code in any language, and we're moving to way better AI. GPT-3 got "mindboggling" results by training on a ton of data: Basically the whole Internet. It doesn't need to train on your specific use-case (zero-shot learning). It can fool 88% of people, and we're still in the baby stage.

How Artificial Intelligence is Transforming Human Resources


The latest advancements in machine learning and artificial intelligence have resulted in a huge shift in how people globally interact with technology and their teams. FREMONT, CA: The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in human resource (HR) practices has allowed organizations to streamline processes and operations by analyzing, predicting and diagnosing to make better decisions. HR teams integrate AI to analyze transactional workforce data and predict employee potential, fatigue, flight risk and even overall engagement. And allowing for more productive conversations to enhance the employee experience, retention and performance. AI-backed chatbots allow HR managers to understand and analyze the sentiment of the employees so that they can tackle the possible issues and assure that their concerns are heard. HR departments will need to integrate AI technology to connect companies with current and potential employees and to scale the business higher.

The Building Blocks of an AI Strategy


As the popularity of artificial intelligence waxes and wanes, it feels like we are at a peak. Hardly a day goes by without an organization announcing "a pivot toward AI" or an aspiration to "become AI-driven." Banks and fintechs are using facial recognition to support know-your-customer guidelines; marketing companies are deploying unsupervised learning to capture new consumer insights; and retailers are experimenting with AI-fueled sentiment analysis, natural language processing, and gamification. A close examination of the activities undertaken by these organizations reveals that AI is mainly being used for tactical rather than strategic purposes -- in fact, finding a cohesive long-term AI strategic vision is rare. Even in well-funded companies, AI capabilities are mostly siloed or unevenly distributed.

The Impact Of AI On Call Centres


The pandemic is a severe stress test for the business continuity plans of global corporations. The operators of call centres are playing an important role in meeting that challenge, and it has not been easy. In normal times, if an earthquake hits Bangalore, you can switch capacity to your call centre in Manila. But what do you do when all the call centres around the world that serve your customers are hit – all at the same time? The big outsourcing call centre companies which serve corporate giants have hundreds of thousands of employees, and many of these people are working from home now.

The Real AI Crisis


Some thought leaders, such as Elon Musk and the late Stephen Hawking, have repeatedly warned about the potential danger of artificial intelligence and expressed fear that AI may annihilate humans someday. Such fear has not been shared by the vast majority of computer scientists and data scientists, who consider the hyped drama of "man vs. machine" a distraction that is grounded in an intriguing but misguided fiction. Meanwhile, a true AI crisis is upon us now, and is having a huge impact on the business world. As much as enterprises are eager to embrace AI to innovate products, transform business, reduce costs, and improve competitive advantages, they find it very difficult to productionize AI and realize its full benefits, due to the time, budget, and skills required. As a result, the rate of AI adoption has significantly lagged the level of interest, particularly for small- and medium-sized enterprises, which are more resource-constrained.

The Future of AI in Digital Marketing - NewsDio


Technological advancements are continuously changing the business world and how companies do marketing. The phrase'data is the new oil' is going to be a buzzword for a long time because it rings true. But just like oil, data is of no use if it's not refined into insights that help you create value. The tools that help you refine data are more critical to business today than ever before. Artificial intelligence is currently at the top of the food chain in the marketing world.

3 Important Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Transform Your Business And Turbocharge Success


From the smallest local business to the largest global players, I believe every organization must embrace the AI revolution, and identify how AI (artificial intelligence) will make the biggest difference to their business. But before you can develop a robust AI strategy – in which you work out how best to use AI to drive business success – you first need to understand what's possible with AI. To put it another way, how are other companies using AI to drive success? Let's briefly look at each area in turn. Thanks to the Internet of Things, a whole host of everyday products are getting smarter.

Human-Robot Relationship Headed Towards Building Trust


On a normal day, humans encounter Artificial Intelligence (AI) numerous times. Artificial intelligence has become a part of human's routine in many ways. They enter our lives in the form of smartphones, appliances in our homes and technology in our cars. Since humans are at the verge of accepting robotics into society, the question that lingers in everyone's mind is'Can robots be trusted?' Human has a mythical illustration of robots turning aggressive once they are provided with all the features of humans. We are pushed to such conclusions through movies, soap operas and dramas.
