#artificialintelligence

The Center for a New American Security (CNAS) today announced a major new project, the Artificial Intelligence and Global Security Initiative. "We are at the beginning of a new industrial revolution powered by artificial intelligence," said Paul Scharre, Director of the CNAS Technology and National Security Program, who will lead the Initiative. The Artificial Intelligence and Global Security Initiative will explore how AI will change conflict and power, and provide recommendations for policymakers to cope with the changes ahead." In addition to producing articles, reports, and briefings for key audiences, the Artificial Intelligence and Global Security Initiative will host a large, all-day conference on artificial intelligence in the fall.

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.


Researchers shut down AI that invented its own language

#artificialintelligence

Negotiating in a new language As Fast Co. Design reports, Facebook's researchers recently noticed its new AI had given up on English. "Agents will drift off from understandable language and invent code-words for themselves," Fast Co. Design reports Facebook AI researcher Dhruv Batra said. AI language translates human ones In a separate case, Google recently improved its Translate service by adding a neural network. While they appear nonsensical, the results observed by teams such as Google Translate indicate they actually represent the most efficient solution to major problems.


Do You Have AI Trust Issues?

#artificialintelligence

The truth is that increasing numbers of consumers each year are putting their trust into machines that gather data about them and then use it to understand their behavior and preferences in far quicker, easier and often more accurate ways than human beings ever could. Indeed, a recent study conducted by my employer among 6,000 global consumers, found that 88 percent of respondents wanted to be told whether they were interacting with a real person or a machine when they received customer service help. Instead, the process will involve humans working alongside AI to generate insights, predict behavior and make recommendations that will have a significant impact on the way that we as consumers interact with organizations. Only when that question has been answered and that obstacle overcome will organizations be able to harness the power of humans and machines working together to provide truly seamless customer experiences.


CrowdFlower expands to help companies implement machine learning

#artificialintelligence

CrowdFlower, a company that helps customers build AI systems by providing them with training data, announced today that it's getting into the business of helping companies implement machine learning. It could help existing customers get unstuck with a system that isn't working, assist businesses that have already implemented one machine learning system get started with something completely new, and also get brand new customers started with implementing AI. This doesn't mean that CrowdFlower is abandoning its work providing companies with training data -- quite the contrary. Monica Rogati and Adrian Weller -- both veterans of the machine learning ecosystem -- will give CrowdFlower input on its technology and product strategy, as well as advising the company on developments in the AI ecosystem at large.


Being smarter means you are more likely to use stereotypes

Daily Mail

The participants were shown male faces with varying facial features, such as wide and narrow noses, along with descriptions of their past behaviour, such as'sent flowers to someone who was sick,' or'laughed and jeered at a homeless person.' Using Amazon's Mechanical Turk tool, the researchers conducted six online experiments, including a total of 1,257 participants. Using Amazon's Mechanical Turk tool, the researchers conducted six online experiments, including a total of 1,257 participants. 'Finding that higher pattern detection ability puts people at greater risk to detect and apply stereotypes, but also to reverse them, implicates this ability as a cognitive mechanism underlying stereotyping,' Freeman says.


Autism Test: Eye Movement May Help Diagnose Developmental Disorder

International Business Times

The University of Rochester Medical Center explained that the researchers designed their experiment so that a person's eyes would naturally overshoot the target as they tried to track the visual. As the experiment went on, a healthy person's eyes would adjust to overcome that design and make more precise movements, while people with autism did not -- their eyes kept missing the target. "The inability of the brain to adjust the size of eye movement may not only be a marker for cerebellum dysfunction, but it may also help explain the communication and social interaction deficits that many individuals with [autism spectrum disorder] experience." Doctors might be able to track eye movements to detect the developmental disorder autism, which would help them diagnose the condition earlier.
