China's Artificial Intelligence Revolution

#artificialintelligence

By this time, China hopes to have achieved important progress in next generation AI technologies, including big data, swarm intelligence, hybrid enhanced intelligence, and autonomous intelligent systems. China's core AI industry should have surpassed 400 billion RMB (about $59 billion), with AI-related fields exceeding 5 trillion RMB (about $740 billion). To support its continued primacy in AI, China plans to create leading AI innovation and personnel training bases, while constructing more comprehensive for legal, regulatory, ethical, and policy frameworks. While formulating legal, regulatory, and ethical frameworks on AI, China will create mechanisms to ensure appropriate safety and security in AI systems.


The UK desperately needs a Radiology AI Incubator – Hugh Harvey – Medium

#artificialintelligence

In the UK academic circuit there are dozens of medical imaging researchers building algorithms on small datasets, but they lack the resources to test them on millions of images, let alone get their product into the market. What is needed is the alignment of big technology companies, the RCR and the NHS governing bodies to drive a fully collaborative vision in the field of radiology AI. We should be capitalising on the NHS as a national system, by pooling imaging data and building a nationalised imaging warehouse and technology incubator (I'd like to call this BRAIN -- British Radiology Artificial Intelligence Network). This would create a national institute for radiology in AI, capable of attracting industry partners, funding for researchers and equipment.


The democratisation of artificial intelligence - Tessella

#artificialintelligence

AI is already helping engineering companies model new jet engine designs, oil companies predict where to drill for oil, drug companies identify promising new areas for research. Data analytics allowed companies to identify interesting patterns in data which could help them better target customers and understand operations – transforming online sales and marketing, and well understood production processes. Next is the AI infrastructure layer, which allows developers to build AI tools such as machine learning and neural nets using existing frameworks. Companies which identify a problem that needs solving; understand the context, find the right data, apply the right intelligence and build the right solutions with the right tools will be the ones who bring about the next big disruption.


Cyberpsychology and How AI Affects Humans - DZone AI

#artificialintelligence

We use it in every walk of life -- when we were kids, we formed relationship bonds with our parents, siblings, and friends; we learned about physical and emotional worlds by forming connections using our minds. But now, we are entering into a wave of innovation that will require these devices to replicate right-brain operations such as intuition, emotion, and empathy. Now, as we move from the Internet of Screens era to the Internet of Things era, it is important that we work on developing our understanding of and psychological relationship with this technology. As the volume of these devices hits the trillions, it is much more important that we evolve our Experience of Things rather than simply build a huge mesh of connected devices in our everyday world.


How new IT operating models stave off digital disruption

#artificialintelligence

To accommodate these shifts, CIOs are making sweeping organizational changes, adding new key roles, setting up innovation labs and tapping modern technologies to meet strategic mandates issued by their CEOs and boards. With big data analytics playing an increasingly prevalent role in agriculture -- an industry not known for technological change since its Industrial Age transformation -- Swanson created a global product and engineering team overseeing platforms for data and analytics, operations and labs, customers, finance, and workforce. When LPL moved to a new facility in Fort Mill, S.C., Fetter created an innovation lab where engineers test emerging technologies, such as how to use Amazon.com's Alexa and other virtual assistants to check balance inquiries, trades and other transactions. Last July, the company moved roughly 1,100 employees in its professional services organization onto FinancialForce, an ERP product hosted on and feeding data to Salesforce.com.

What Is The Future Of Technology In America?

International Business Times

While consumer protection laws clearly outlaw unfair pricing and require equal employment opportunities, the regulations enforcing these laws are increasingly obsolete and impotent. Politicians of all stripes support creating or increasing competition, preventing price-gouging in communities served by monopoly broadband providers and encouraging companies to provide internet service in remote areas. However, scaling up this approach, called distributed microgeneration, requires an electrical system that enables two-way metering – a smart utility system that credits customers for power generated and charges them for power consumed. The United States spends billions of dollars every year on information technology, and tens of billions more on government-funded research and other grants.


Q&A with Igor Mikhalev: Rethinking Business and UX with AI

#artificialintelligence

That's why we invited Igor Mikhalev from Firmshift, a data-driven technology development company, to answer a few questions about machine learning and AI. However, talking about short to mid-term, I believe the focus will be on the ownership, sufficiency, and readiness of data, as well as organizational capabilities to nurture the creative process of working with internal and external data in the context of cross-functional business (model) innovation, supported by machine learning technology. Once you've established first results, build awareness and a clear business case to establish data science competency, and work with HR to start nurturing a data-driven culture that underpins its importance and usefulness. Designing AI would entail helping business, science, and engineering teams to think creatively, drive the cross-functional business (model) innovation process, challenge conventional wisdom, and become aware of the differences imposed by each other's thinking realms.
