The Future



Coding Canadian values into the future of artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Trust is a delicate thing. It can take a lifetime to build and can disappear in an instant. We know the relationship Canadians have with their financial institutions is rooted in trust. Canadians look to their bank to be there for them, to safeguard their families' financial future, and offer them the right advice and guidance that can help them be more financially confident. As we continue to innovate and create new experiences for our customers, preserving that trust is paramount.

AI can churn out algorithm-friendly online advertising campaigns that deliver an abundance of clicks. It can save plenty of time composing standard communications and product descriptions. It can help you add reams of SEO content to your website. But AI doesn't know how to really stimulate our minds. Even though it's a bit more familiar with our online behavioural patterns than some of us feel comfortable with.

Artificial intelligence is giving medical professionals the ability to create a digital replica of patients, allowing doctors to predict how effective surgery will be. Australia's peak science agency CSIRO is developing AI-powered tools to diagnose mental health disorders more accurately and safeguard patients' genetic data in DNA testing. Northeast Health Wangaratta is already using AI to stop cyber attacks. Using its public hospital in regional Victoria, Northeast Health Wangaratta is investigating the use of AI to create a digital replica of its patients. Doctors then use the replica to trial treatment.


Joy Behar compares Trump presidency to George Orwell's '1984'

FOX News

'View' co-host Joy Behar didn't hold back when commenting on President Trump's heavy criticism of freshmen Democratic congresswomen, Reps. Behar said Trump is'running very scared right now,' and that'he is like a cornered rat.' Her comments came as Trump stood by his original criticism of the group known as'The Squad.' "View" co-host Joy Behar invoked George Orwell's iconic novel "1984" while discussing the Trump presidency with author Stephen King. While promoting his new novel, "The Institute," on Wednesday, King began by explaining the plot, which involves "defenseless children" with supernatural abilities who are "locked up" by a mysterious organization. He talked about how his story connects to current events. "When I started writing this book, I just wanted to write a story about defenseless children who were locked up and had to kind of band together in order to fight these cruel adults that are performing tests on them," King said.


Pursuit of the AI Singularity Is Modern Alchemy

Students who study calculus are experiencing the fruits of the genius of Isaac Newton (1643–1727). The same is true for introductory courses in physics and differential equations. All are due to Newton, who built the beautiful palace of mathematical physics. The wings of quantum mechanics and relativity were added in the early twentieth century. But Newton had other interests as well.


Mind-reading AI may spell end to humanity as we know it, but not because it will enslave us – Zizek

A computer that can read the thoughts of many people at once would make normal human life impossible, the Slovenian cultural philosopher told RT in the wake of the World Artificial Intelligence (AI) Conference in Shanghai, which saw Alibaba's chairman Jack Ma and Tesla CEO Elon Musk clashing over the future of AI. While the two technopreneurs engaged in a heated discussion over the possibility of humans being controlled by machines in the future, the senior researcher at the Institute for Sociology and Philosophy at the University of Ljubljana shared his thoughts on the issue with RT. What I am studying now is the so-called phenomenon of wired brains, a possibility of our brains being connected with strong digital machines. And that is not a utopia. In the media lab at MIT, Massachusetts, they already have simple machines like that.


IBM, MIT, and Three Critical Processes Changing Our AI Future

#artificialintelligence

Like the IBM researcher who presented on a joint project between IBM and MIT to create smarter AIs, I'm not a fan of the term AI. But don't get me started on naming because, when I did it, I discovered a new rule and that rule is that "the only thing folks will agree on when it comes to a new name is that the poor sap that came up with it is an idiot." Still to me something is either intelligent or not and if you are going to define a class of intelligence you likely should connect it to the source like human intelligence, animal intelligence, or, in this case, Machine Intelligence. Our current AI technology level is stupid. We call it Narrow AI, but it means the AI can do one of a limited number of highly defined tasks somewhat autonomously.

Although K-POP history is being rewritten every day, there is no moment as intense as Kindergarten kids singing along to'Love Scenario'. It's a phenomenon where kids start singing as if the auto-play button is pressed the moment they hear "Sarangeul " somewhere. It has been almost one and a half years since'Love Scenario' was released to the world, yet this strange phenomenon is still ongoing. Without knowing who iKON is or what kind of idol they are, they are being loved for'Love Scenario', a song equivalent to a nursery rhyme.
