How AI can empower communities and strengthen democracy

#artificialintelligence

Each Fourth of July for the past five years I've written about AI with the potential to positively impact democratic societies. I return to this question with the hope of shining a light on technology that can strengthen communities, protect privacy and freedoms, or otherwise support the public good. This series is grounded in the principle that artificial intelligence can is capable of not just value extraction, but individual and societal empowerment. While AI solutions often propagate bias, they can also be used to detect that bias. As Dr. Safiya Noble has pointed out, artificial intelligence is one of the critical human rights issues of our lifetimes.


5 Ways AI is Transforming the Finance Industry - Maruti Techlabs

#artificialintelligence

As global technology has evolved over the years, we have moved from television to the internet, and today we are smoothly and gradually adapting Artificial Intelligence. The term AI was first coined by John McCarthy in 1956. It involves a lot of the main things ranging from process automation of robotics to the actual process of robotics. It has become highly popular among large enterprises today owing to the amount of data these companies are dealing in. Increase in the demand for understanding the data patterns has led to the growth in demand of AI.


The Future Of Artificial Intelligence: A Complete Overview - 1 Blog Online

#artificialintelligence

Before diving into Artificial Intelligence's future, Let's have a look at what is Artificial Intelligence. Artificial Intelligence is a machine Intelligence. In contrast with natural intelligence, machine intelligence is more accurate and efficient because it demonstrated by machines, not by humans or animals. Today, AI properly knowns as narrow AI (or weak AI), just because of designed it for narrow tasks. But, for a long-term goal, many researchers go for general AI (AGI or strong AI).


What is the Future of Artificial Intelligence in K-12 Education?

#artificialintelligence

Among the other questions being asked as a result of the current pandemic is, "What will the rise of artificial intelligence mean for K-12 education?" It would seem safe to assume that the rush to online learning and the adoption of new technologies will inevitably lead educators to embrace tools powered by artificial intelligence. But according to Robert F. Murphy, that more optimistic vision for AI will probably be tempered for now by budget shortfalls that "may seriously delay" school districts from making those types of investments anytime soon. Murphy is an independent education consultant with over two decades of research experience, including as a senior policy researcher for the international think tank RAND Corporation and as the director for evaluation research at SRI International, a scientific research center. In a paper authored last year for RAND, Murphy addressed the more fundamental issues of AI that need to be considered, regarding its further adoption.


Study: Only 18% of data science students are learning about AI ethics

#artificialintelligence

Amid a growing backlash over AI's racial and gender biases, numerous tech giants are launching their own ethics initiatives -- of dubious intent. The schemes are billed as altruistic efforts to make tech serve humanity. But critics argue their main concern is evading regulation and scrutiny through "ethics washing." At least we can rely on universities to teach the next generation of computer scientists to make. Only 15% of instructors and professors said they're teaching AI ethics, and just 18% of students indicated they're learning about the subject.


How Marketing AI Will Transform Your Lead Generation (and Conversion)

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is about to change lead generation and conversion as you know it. In the process, it'll have a transformative impact on companies and careers. AI is a blanket term that covers several different technologies. You might have heard of some of them, like machine learning, computer vision, and natural language processing. Even if you don't know much about it, though, you probably use AI-powered technology dozens or hundreds of times per day.


Global Big Data Conference

#artificialintelligence

On Tuesday, a number of AI researchers, ethicists, data scientists, and social scientists released a blog post arguing that academic researchers should stop pursuing research that endeavors to predict the likelihood that an individual will commit a criminal act, as based upon variables like crime statistics and facial scans. The blog post was authored by the Coalition for Critical Technology, who argued that the utilization of such algorithms perpetuates a cycle of prejudice against minorities. Many studies of the efficacy of face recognition and predictive policing algorithms find that the algorithms tend to judge minorities more harshly, which the authors of the blog post argue is due to the inequities in the criminal justice system. The justice system produces biased data, and therefore the algorithms trained on this data propagate those biases, the Coalition for Critical Technology argues. The coalition argues that the very notion of "criminality" is often based on race, and therefore research done on these technologies assumes the neutrality of the algorithms when in truth no such neutrality exists.


The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Human Rights

#artificialintelligence

Adopting AI can affect not just your workers but how you deal with privacy and discrimination issues. As humans become more reliant on machines to make processes more efficient and inform their decisions, the potential for a conflict between artificial intelligence and human rights has emerged. If left unchecked, artificial intelligence can create inequality and can even be used to actively deny human rights across the globe. However, if used optimally, AI can enhance human rights, increase shared prosperity, and create a better future for us all. It is ultimately up to businesses to carefully consider the opportunities new technologies provide and how they can best leverage these opportunities while being conscious of the impact on human rights.

How Machine Learning and AI are Transforming the Online Gambling Industry

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence offers boundless possibilities. Despite currently being used for solving practical tasks, experts believe we are only viewing the tip of the iceberg. But even the tip looks incredible already. Imagine playing a game of strategy and having a completely customized scenario, instead of following one of the scripted few. A personalized gaming reality, with unique conversations and decisions made right there and then.
