Concern at the use of facial recognition technology continues as California lawmakers ban its use for the body cameras used by state and local law enforcement officers. It comes after civil rights campaign group in the US called ACLU ran a picture of every California state legislator through a facial-recognition program that matches facial pictures to a database of 25,000 criminal mugshots. The test saw the facial recognition program falsely flag 26 legislators as criminals. And to make matters worse, more than half of the falsely matched lawmakers were people of colour, according to the ACLU. Officials in San Francisco have already banned the use of facial recognition technology, meaning that local agencies, such as the local police force and other city agencies such as transportation would not be able to utilise the technology in any of their systems.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are the two major foundations of the cybersecurity industry for the past few years. Some of the people think that both these terms have a similar meaning, but that's just a false notion! Here we will explain a complete insight about how AI and ML are essential for the cybersecurity solutions for your business protection. Artificial intelligence (AI) in the form of information that is based on machines and machine learning is just a sample framework of artificial intelligence. In the concept of machine learning, computers learn on their own.
CORAL GABLES, Fla., August 13, 2019 – What if massive data sets could be accessed and analyzed in just an hour, instead of a day? It could change the field of genomics, help researchers predict impacts of climate change more expediently, and help understand the origins of the universe. Today, the University of Miami (UM) announced that their new supercomputer, Triton, is installed and helping their researchers and analysts explore these possibilities. The new high-performance system uses the same AI-optimized architecture as the most powerful supercomputers in the world, the U.S. Department of Energy's Summit and Sierra supercomputers. The $3.7 million system was assembled and validated distally by IBM and the University's Center for Computational Science (CCS) personnel.
Rep. Will Hurd continues to campaign for an American national strategy around artificial intelligence, and the Texas Republican told FedScoop it's something he hopes to get done before the end of his final term in Congress. After explaining his ideal outline for the strategy during a keynote at the Dell Technologies Forum on Thursday, he told FedScoop, "this is on my list for the next 14 months" before he leaves office. Hurd recently announced he won't run for re-election in 2020. "We have to ensure America leads in artificial intelligence, quantum computing and other technologies that are going to define the course of this century," Hurd said. "That's why government should work on things like a national strategy to coordinate across government and academia and the private sector to advance research and development and adoption of artificial intelligence."
