How to Avoid RPA's Disadvantages, According to Gartner

#artificialintelligence

Total annual RPA revenue is expected to reach $1.3 billion in 2020, up from $98 million in 2015. Robotic process automation (RPA) is everywhere. Businesses are talking about it, analysts are writing about it; RPA has appeared in articles in Forbes and McKinley and The Wall Street Journal. You can hardly mention digital transformation without hearing about RPA. But are there risks with using RPA?


What patients want the FDA to consider about the role of AI in medicine

#artificialintelligence

Federal regulators have cleared dozens of AI products used in health care, which might give the impression that the Food and Drug Administration has a firm handle on a technology that is already changing how patients are treated. But a meeting on AI regulation last week told a different story. The agency is still grappling with fundamental questions about algorithmic bias, data transparency, and how to ensure that patients benefit equally from AI's rapid progress in medicine.

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on the Law

#artificialintelligence

For the first time, lawyers can apply legal analytics to cases heard in New York County Supreme Court ("New York County"). Lex Machina, a subsidiary of RELX, the British information corporate formerly known as Reed Elsevier, is announcing today the publication of data on 119,000 cases. The data is based on both dockets (analogous to the abstracts of academic papers) and documents (the full papers). Numerically, this caseload is not a massive expansion to the 4.5m cases already in Lex Machina's database, but Karl Harris, Lex Machina's CEO, argues it is an important milestone because New York County is such a significant jurisdiction. Lawyers are not renowned for an addiction to statistics and maths.


AMD expands its arsenal by snatching up programmable chip maker Xilinx

Engadget

AMD is acquiring chip designer Xilinx for $35 billion in stock to "significantly" expand the range of products it makes and customers it reaches, particularly in high performance computing. As the Wall Street Journal noted, Xilinx's easily customizable FPGA (field-programmable gate array) chips are used in a variety of places AMD wouldn't have even considered before, from 5G systems to the F-35 to self-driving cars. The newly-bought company also specializes in adaptive systems-on-chip, accelerators and smart networking devices found in data centers, edge computing and end devices. AMD expects the Xilinx deal to take a while to wrap up. It should close by the end of 2021, the company said.


Experiments in Audio Theatre, Radical and Retro

The New Yorker

"Look with thine ears," Lear tells poor blind Gloucester, and that is exactly what the rest of us should do now we know that the majority of New York theatres will not open their doors until, at the most optimistic guesstimate, the middle of next year. Zoom fatigue set in months ago, but audio is stepping into the breach to take us places that glazed screen-gazing can't. The eyes tend toward the literal, while what we only hear can bloom, the way a novel does, in the privacy of the mind, as is the case with two new productions--one radical, one retro--that use audio to light a path forward for performance in the COVID era and beyond. "A Thousand Ways" (produced by the Brooklyn-based ArKtype) was created by the duo Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone, who go by the moniker 600 Highwaymen and are known for devising inventive, sincere theatre of a kind that makes urbane audiences fatted on cynicism feel wonder afresh. In "This Great Country," from 2012, seventeen performers, some experienced, some green, acted out scenes from "Death of a Salesman," transforming that classic into something rich and strange; "Employee of the Year," staged in 2014, had five girls under the age of eleven tell the story of one woman's adulthood.


The Amazing Ways Duolingo Is Using Artificial Intelligence To Deliver Free Language Learning

#artificialintelligence

It's a challenge to learn a new language, especially once we're past 18 years old. But Duolingo, self-proclaimed as "the world's best way to learn a language" and seconded by reviewers at the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, is set to change that with an assist from artificial intelligence (AI). Duolingo launched in 2011, and through a powerful mix of personalized learning, immediate feedback and gamification/rewards, it has become one of the most downloaded educational apps today. Let's take a look at how artificial intelligence helps the company deliver personalized language lessons to its 300 million users. Founded in Pittsburgh by Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist Luis von Ahn, who is renowned for creating CAPTCHA, Duolingo's mission is to "make education free and accessible to everyone in the world."
