This Site Shows You What AI Really Thinks of You


Have you ever wondered what a computer thinks of you when it automatically detects your face before applying a cat filter? Thanks to a new AI tool, you can find out, but fair warning: the reality isn't pretty. "ImageNet Roulette" is a website created by programmer Leif Ryge for researcher Kate Crawford and artist Trevor Paglen's recent art exhibit "Training Humans." The site takes your photo and runs it through some common machine learning software before returning the labels that the AI decided to apply to you. As numerous people discovered (and tweeted about) while using the tool, these labels are often weird, mean, racist, and misogynistic.

Arkansas Scientists Employ Machine Learning to Manage Corn Crops More Efficiently


Professors Jia Di, left, and Trent Roberts inspect a prototype corn sensor set up in a test plot at the Arkansas Agricultural Research and Extension Center. FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A team of researchers from the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture and the University of Arkansas College of Engineering is designing tiny sensors that can be placed in corn stalks to monitor water, nitrogen and potassium needs in real time. The data collected from those sensors -- matched with geographic, weather and other environmental data -- will feed machine learning software to develop models that will be able to predict when a crop will need those inputs before the conditions exist. Those predictive models can help corn growers give their crops exactly the water and nutrients they need, before they experience stress, to achieve the best possible yields without wasting resources. The collaborative research by the division's Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station and the university's College of Engineering is supported by the Chancellor's Discovery, Creativity, Innovation and Collaboration Fund.

From The Jetsons to Reality, or Almost: What Employers Need to Know About Robots and AI in the Workplace


Many readers will remember The Jetsons – a futuristic world in which sophisticated robots in both the home and the workplace had the ability to do, think, learn, and interact with humans. While The Jetsons' rendering of the "future" has not come to fruition, robots and artificial intelligence (AI) have made and continue to make their way into the modern workplace at breakneck speed, creating unprecedented opportunities and challenges for employers in nearly every sector of the economy. This series will explore those challenges, a topic of considerable importance to employers but one that has been overshadowed by the cost-savings and potentially positive economic impact that robots and AI can bring to a workplace. As the use of robots and AI in the workplace have increased and will continue to do so, employers must be proactive about identifying, understanding, and mitigating risks and areas of potential exposure. The future is coming, and in many ways is already here.
