Roadmap to becoming an artificial intelligence engineer


Market valuation experts assigned the global artificial intelligence market a value of $39.9 billion in 2019 with a projected Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 42 percent from 2020 to 2027. The world is constantly evolving with many technological developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI has a massive impact on several machines from the android system in phones to web indexes and self-driving vehicles to other various electronic devices, the impact of AI is growing exponentially, it is estimated that AI will provide more than 2 million job opportunities within the next couple of years. With the increase in interest in the field of AI, the demand for AI engineers has increased immensely. In this article, let's understand what an artificial intelligence engineer does, what prerequisites are, and what skills are required to be an artificial intelligence engineer, top U.S. states for AI jobs, which is the best artificial intelligence certification.

NASA's Perseverance Rover Is Looking for Life on Mars WSJD - Technology

NASA's latest Mars rover is done with its testing and is ready to embark upon its first scientific mission. After landing on the planet in February, the Perseverance rover has been busy trying out its many instruments--converting atmospheric carbon dioxide into oxygen that would be needed for manned missions, flying a helicopter and taking photos. Now, it will begin its mission: looking for evidence of life. Over the coming months, it will use a variety of sophisticated instruments to scan the planet's Jezero Crater for places of interest, drill into rocks and soil, and collect specimens to be retrieved and brought to Earth by future spacecraft. The rover is packed with 23 cameras, sensors, a laser and a drill-equipped robotic arm.

How Artificial Intelligence Is Changing The Way We Advertise


Recently, I've been discussing Professor John Lennox's book entitled 2084, which is all about the development and production of artificial intelligence. As an Atheist, I clearly have many differences with his Christian perspective. Wherever you sit with regard to the God question, Christianity, or the ethical concerns that are raised with the advancement of AI, you have to give varying perspectives their due. Today, I wanted to spend a moment chatting about how artificial intelligence is impacting the advertising world and the serious ethical questions that are raised by that. So let's begin with a couple of points from that book Professor Lennox wrote.

A brave new world of artificial intelligence


Back in 2014, Amazon turned to artificial intelligence (AI) to streamline its recruitment process, using a machine-learning algorithm to review résumés and automate its search for talent. Three years later it abandoned the programme after it became apparent it was biased against female candidates. Because it relied on historical hiring patterns -- mostly of men -- it built in a preference for male hires. Last year, researchers in the US claimed they could predict criminality by running profile pictures through an AI algorithm. The project was roundly condemned, with scientists pointing out that it simply replicated existing racial biases in the criminal justice system, according to a report by tech magazine Wired...

Interview: Marc Andreessen, VC and tech pioneer


Marc Andreessen should need no introduction, but I'll do one anyway. He helped code the first widely used graphical web browser, Mosaic, which as I see it makes him one of the inventors of the internet. He co-founded Netscape and various other companies. He also co-founded the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz (with Ben Horowitz), also known as A16Z, one of the country's largest VC firms. Recently he has launched a media publication called Future, where he occasionally writes his thoughts. Marc has been a sort of hero of mine ever since I was a teenager, when Netscape Navigator felt like it opened up the world. I came out to California in part to meet people like him. Now we know each other well, and he's a subscriber to my blog! The thing I always like about talking to Marc is how he combines relentless optimism with the concrete knowledge to back up that optimism -- both knowledge of specific details and a broad understanding of various schools of thought. Lots of people will tell you the future holds amazing possibilities; Marc will tell you exactly what those possibilities are, and why they're possible.

9 ethical AI principles for organizations to follow


Organizations around the globe are becoming more aware of the risks artificial intelligence (AI) may pose, including bias and potential job loss due to automation. At the same time, AI is providing many tangible benefits for organizations and society. For organization, this is creating a fine line between the potential harm AI might cause and the costs of not adopting the technology. Three emerging practices can help organizations navigate the complex world of moral dilemmas created by autonomous and intelligent systems. AI risks continue to grow, but so does the number of public and private organizations that are releasing ethical principles to guide the development and use of AI.

Using Learning Analytics to Predict Cheating Has Been Going on for Longer Than You Think


Matt is currently an Instructional Designer II at Orbis Education and a Part-Time Instructor at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. Previously he worked as a Learning Innovation Researcher with the UT Arlington LINK Research Lab. His work focuses on learning theory, Heutagogy, and learner agency. Matt holds a Ph.D. in Learning Technologies from the University of North Texas, a Master of Education in Educational Technology from UT Brownsville, and a Bachelors of Science in Education from Baylor University. His research interests include instructional design, learning pathways, sociocultural theory, heutagogy, virtual reality, and open networked learning.

Could Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Lead to Errors, Medical Malpractice?


Like any technology, AI has just as much potential for harm as for good. Some experts predict that once the excitement and novelty of AI-assisted clinical procedures wear off, problems will begin to pop up. For example, few of the 130 AI devices the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved over the past couple of years have been tested in clinical trials. As a result, AI could miss a tumor during a CT scan, recommend the wrong medication, give a hospital bed to a patient who needs it less than another and produce many other errors. And if there is a fundamental flaw in the programming, it could misdiagnose thousands of patients instead of just one.

New center for AI, machine-learning research dedicated at IU


Now, AI at IU has a home. IU President Michael A. McRobbie dedicated the $35 million Luddy Center for Artificial Intelligence, a 58,000-square-foot facility that will serve as the hub for multidisciplinary research in advanced AI and machine-learning applications, during a ceremony June 23 at Luddy Hall. "As we dedicate the Luddy Center for Artificial Intelligence, it is fair to say that we are also celebrating what will be a game-changing development for Indiana University," McRobbie said. "Indiana University has been a center of research in a number of areas of AI for many years. Artificial intelligence has long been an area of strength of the Department of Computer Science and, more broadly, IU faculty in the cognitive sciences, psychological sciences and neurosciences have also long been engaged in areas of research relevant to AI. The explosion worldwide of the uses and applications of AI, building on decades of steady research progress, made this the perfect time for IU to establish a major holistic initiative in artificial intelligence."
