Communications Newswire - AI Eye Podcast: CTO of GBT Technologies Inc. (OTC: $GTCH) Talks about Avant! AI with Epsilon EDA; #artificialintelligence


Listen to today's podcast featuring CTO, Dr. Danny Rittman: "What Epsilon will have that all of these guys will not have ... Epsilon will have Avant! in it," Rittman said in a recent interview with "It will do something very simple that currently no other programs do. Avant! will equip Epsilon with a phenomenon that we call'an attention to details'. The neural network will actually pay attention as the design is going forward. GBT announced its intention to implement its Avant! "We identified the EDA field, a modern domain used to design integrated circuits (ICs), that we believe can significantly benefit from our AI technology.

Elon Musk says Neuralink could bring A.I. 'superintelligence' to the brain


Beyond cortical and limbic systems, the company Neuralink could add a third layer of digital superintelligence to humans and avoid artificial intelligence enslavement, its founder Elon Musk claimed Tuesday. The brain-computer linkup firm is working to treat medical conditions using its implanted chip as early as next year, but during a podcast appearance, Musk reiterated his belief that the technology could avoid some of the worst consequences of advanced machines. "It's important that Neuralink solves this problem sooner rather than later, because the point at which we have digital superintelligence, that's when we pass the singularity and things become just very uncertain," Musk said during an interview with MIT professor Lex Fridman. Musk was keen to note that the singularity, a hypothesized point where machines grow so advanced that humanity slips into an irreversible change, may not necessarily be good or bad. He did state, however, that "things become extremely unstable" after that point, which means Neuralink would need to achieve its human-brain linkup either before or not long after "to minimize the existential risk for humanity and consciousness as we know it."

Smartphone security: What's better to use a PIN, facial recognition, or your fingerprint?

FOX News

Locking your phone keeps out snoops, but it's also your first line of defense against hackers and cybercriminals out for your data and anything else they can steal. Tap or click for 3 safer ways to pay for things online other than credit cards. So, what's the best way to secure your phone? Is it biometrics like your fingerprint or a scan of your face? Most people aren't very good at creating hard-to-crack passwords, so yours might not even be effective at keeping your devices or your accounts safe.

AI Talent in the European Labour Market


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a hotly debated topic, particularly in the context of its impact on the labour market and the workforce. These vital discussions are all too often based on assumptions and desktop projections rather than on concrete, objective data. New research from LinkedIn's Economic Graph uncovers novel, evidence-based insights into the state of AI talent development in the European Union (EU) labour market, and identifies emerging trends that can help inform policymaking in this area. The European Commission has clear ambitions and goals for AI, but right now Europe is lagging behind its peers in developing talent. The U.S. employs twice as many AI-skilled individuals than the EU, despite the American total labour force being just half the size.

Salesforce to Use Amazon AI Technology to Improve Customer Service Apps - Jploft


On 19th November 2019, the Business software provider- Salesforce said that it will use the AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology of Amazon to improve the customer service apps. Salesforce develops such software systems that companies use to collect customer information, such as what products or services the customer has purchased and how long they have been customers. Agents use this information to solve customer problems. Salesforce said it will use Amazon's web services technology to translate words spoken by a customer into text, where they can be translated into different languages or analyzed to determine if the customer is satisfied or not, all in real-time. It further said: "From there, Salesforce's software can read the text and make suggestions using data already in the business' Salesforce-based systems, such as recommending answers to the customer's questions".

VIDEO: Elon Musk's Next Quest Is A Mind-Machine Meld. Let's Consider The Implications

NPR Technology

If today's science continues apace, the future of humanity will likely include further symbiosis with technology. Tech entrepreneurs like Elon Musk are going all-in on brain-machine interfaces; you saw it with Musk's company, Neuralink's announcement about plans for brain chip implants. But is a more direct connection between our brains and our technology something we want? What are the possibilities and the pitfalls? In this Future You with Elise Hu, tech entrepreneur Bryan Johnson, founder of neural interface company Kernel (a Musk competitor), and technology ethicist Tristan Harris talk about what brain-machine interfaces can offer -- and the ethical considerations to make in designing the future you.

All Hands on Tech podcast: Putting HR at the heart of AI decision making


Fear-mongering commentary on AI is abundant. But daunting statistics on the extent of upheaval can often feel unhelpful for HR, as they seem so far removed from the job role today. What's more, research published earlier this year by the CIPD suggests that AI and automation causes as much hiring as firing in UK businesses. To give you a more realistic perspective on the future of work, our fourth episode of HRZone's All Hand on Tech podcast features a discussion between Dr Max Blumberg and David D'Souza on the impact of AI and automation, and how HR professionals should be approaching the evolution of this technology. Towards the end of the discussion, David speaks about the upcoming CIPD Annual Conference which will be taking place on 6-7 November in Manchester.

How to stop the brain drain of artificial intelligence experts out of academia (opinion) Inside Higher Ed


Universities have long been a source of talented leaders for industry, but an accelerating exodus of professors with expertise in artificial intelligence has caused concerns. A recent Bloomberg op-ed asked, "If industry keeps hiring the cutting-edge scholars, who will train the next generation of innovators in artificial intelligence?" This article analyzes the problem and suggests solutions. The brain drain of AI experts out of academia can be explained in simple economic terms. The demand for experts has outpaced supply, leading to sharply increased prices.

AI Performs Similarly to Humans in Identifying Cancerous Lesions


As more researchers turn to artificial intelligence (AI) to explore the accuracy of the technology compared to human experts, a recent study found that an algorithm performed similarly to specialists when identifying melanoma from dermoscopic images of selected lesions. The AI algorithm achieved an area under the receiver operator characteristic curve (AUROC) of 91.8% and a 100% sensitivity, the study, published in JAMA Network Open, revealed. When compared to clinicians, the AI had a specificity of 64.8%, while human experts achieved a specificity of 69.9%. "As the burden of skin cancer increases, artificial intelligence technology could play a role in identifying lesions with a high likelihood of melanoma," the researchers reported. AI-based services could transform patient diagnosis pathways and enable greater efficiencies throughout the healthcare service, the researchers added.
