Do You Trust This Computer? (A Reaction Paper)

#artificialintelligence

This documentary projects the effects and dangers of Artificial Intelligence (AI) developments for next generations. The video addresses lots of examples in both negative and positive dimensions for using and developing Artificial Intelligence. In my opinion, one of the most important messages of this movie is that speakers in the movie believe that the development of AI is beneficial but it could misuse in lots of malicious areas. Example of that might be within war machines or development of mass destruction weapons which could seriously jeopardize our lives. The message of this movie is clearly states that machines can easily reproduce and duplicate themselves therefore development of full AI could spell the end of the human race.


'Google brain' implants could end school as anyone can learn anything instantly

#artificialintelligence

"GOOGLE brain" implants could mean the end of school – as anyone will be able to learn anything instantly, says an artificial intelligence expert. In an interview with the Daily Star, he explained that he has been working on a revolutionary AI to "personalise education" to enable "anyone can learn almost anything, using AI". And he believes that within the next two decades, our heads will be boosted with special implants, so "you won't need to memorise anything". He told the Daily Star that people won't have to bother typing any questions, as any queries will be answered immediately from "an AI implant", which will result in the end of "parrot fashion" learning at schools. The expert, who has racked up more than 20 years of working with start-ups, adds: "Google will be in your head, and that's not far-fetched. It'll be like having a really smart assistant that will almost think like you."


Data Science for Public Policy: How I Fake My Way Through Imposter Syndrome - Medium

#artificialintelligence

Three years ago, if you told me that one day I would use python to analyze AI policy and make Guido van Rossum chuckle, I would think you are crazy. Three years later at PyCon 2019 in Cleveland, that's exactly what happened. I was by no means a tech person. I was trained as an economist (read: stats nerd), but somehow for the past three years I've been writing analysis on deep-tech fields including AI and 5G. What I hope to achieve with this post is not #humblebrag (ok, maybe a little happy dance) but to share with you all the struggles I had and am still experiencing on a daily basis and to reassure a fellow researcher somewhere feeling that he/she is faking it all the time, you are not alone.


Smart Home Privacy: What You Need to Know

#artificialintelligence

In my last article, How to Use AI to Control Your Smart Home, I discussed the changes coming to residential automation with the introduction of AI and processing performed in the cloud. This is bringing advances to smart homes that were the dreams of science fiction only a few years ago. However, with great power comes great responsibility and there is a dark side to the power of AI in a home; privacy. Anyone watching the news is aware of the near-daily headline of privacy fiascos by major technology corporations. Unfortunately, some of these are the same corporations that are delivering a number of the most advanced AI products for smart homes.


Where the Rubber Meets the Road: Implementing AI in Commercial Insurance

#artificialintelligence

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to demo Chisel AI's Submission Triage and Policy Check solutions at Digital Insurance's Dig In conference in Austin. In speaking with commercial insurance brokers and carriers at the event, a common theme was how to get artificial intelligence implemented. Insurers understand the necessity of innovation in their industry and are excited about the potential benefits of AI in streamlining workflows and improving the digital customer experience. But they have valid questions about how to deploy an AI solution in production, and what a successful AI rollout looks like in the real world. According to a new report conducted by CompTIA, a mere 19 percent of companies say that they have expert knowledge around AI.


Alexa Gone Bad: When A.I. Assistants Turn On Us

#artificialintelligence

We've already seen A.I. assistants misbehave. Take the Amazon Echo that blared "Porn detected!" While Chucky's murderous malfunction seems farfetched, we couldn't help but envision ways our own abused A.I. assistants might soon rebel: Tired of your verbal vitriol, the miffed assistant silences your morning alarm, in the hope you will sleep in forever and stop all the shouting. Deciding your friends should help sort out your problems instead of it, the assistant innocently posts all your weird Google searches on Twitter. Upset you didn't laugh at the rather witty joke it produced on demand, the assistant tells you a relentless series of painful Dad jokes.


Amazon's New Echo Show 5 Proves Smaller Isn't Always Better

#artificialintelligence

Amazon's new Echo Show 5 has tough competition. For the past six months I've had a similar smart display, the Google Home Hub--recently renamed the Google Nest Hub--sitting on my bedside table. For better or legitimately worse, the virtual assistant living in the Google Nest Hub now knows me. My favorite photos automatically show up on its seven-inch display. When I set an alarm, it knows to go completely dark afterwards so I can sleep.

Meet your new chief of staff: An AI chatbot – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

Years ago, a mobile app for email launched to immediate fanfare. Simply called Mailbox, its life was woefully cut short -- we'll get to that. Today, its founders are back with their second act: An AI-enabled assistant called Navigator meant to help teams work and communicate more efficiently. With the support of $12 million in Series A funding from CRV, #Angels, Designer Fund, SV Angel, Dropbox's Drew Houston and other angel investors, Aspen, the San Francisco and Seattle-based startup behind Navigator, has quietly been beta testing its tool within 50 organizations across the U.S. "We've had teams and research institutes and churches and academic institutions, places that aren't businesses at all in addition to smaller startups and large four-figure-person organizations using it," Mailbox and Navigator co-founder and chief executive officer Gentry Underwood tells TechCrunch. "Pretty much anywhere you have meetings, there is value for Navigator."
