6 business risks of shortchanging AI ethics and governance

#artificialintelligence

Depending on which Terminator movies you watch, the evil artificial intelligence Skynet has either already taken over humanity or is about to do so. But it's not just science fiction writers who are worried about the dangers of uncontrolled AI. In a 2019 survey by Emerj, an AI research and advisory company, 14% of AI researchers said that AI was an "existential threat" to humanity. Even if the AI apocalypse doesn't come to pass, shortchanging AI ethics poses big risks to society -- and to the enterprises that deploy those AI systems. Central to these risks are factors inherent to the technology -- for example, how a particular AI system arrives at a given conclusion, known as its "explainability" -- and those endemic to an enterprise's use of AI, including reliance on biased data sets or deploying AI without adequate governance in place.


Apple Car could be windowless, patent suggests

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Apple's long-awaited Apple Car could have virtual displays on the inside instead of clear windows, according to a new patent. The tech giant has filed a patent for a virtual reality (VR) vehicle system that matches up'virtual views' with the physical motion of a car as it's travelling. For example, if the car was careering down a hill, the system could project a virtual image of a rollercoaster ride. Chairs in the car would move about to match the visuals, the patent suggests, much like an immersive '4DX' cinema experience. But it would mean passing views of the real world – such as a beautiful medieval cathedral or stunning coastal hills – would be entirely replaced with virtual graphics.


The Download: Google's stalkerware ban failure, and a bet for climate catastrophe

#artificialintelligence

According to research by mobile security firm Certo Software and confirmed by MIT Technology Review, Google Search queries related to tracking partners such as a wife or girlfriend commonly return ads for software and services that explicitly offer to spy on other individuals. Stalkerware, also referred to as spyware, is software designed to secretly monitor another person, tracking their location, phone calls, private messages, web searches, and keystrokes. Although Google banned ads promoting stalkerware in August 2020, stalkerware companies are still able to buy ads containing phrases including "app to see spouse's text messages," "see who your girlfriend is texting," and "it's like having their device" against search results such as "read wife's texts app." "We understand that this is not a war between Ukraine and Russia. This is a war of the pure and the light that exists on this earth, and darkness." The problem is that no one can agree how to save it.


Five Rules for Fixing AI in Business

#artificialintelligence

Companies struggle to use AI to improve the way their businesses operate, a challenge that can be mitigated by following five rules. There are two faces to the machine-learning component of artificial intelligence algorithms. There are the gee-whiz competitions in which data grand masters, given fixed rules, design algorithms that set in motion a race to solve aspects of complex problems like HIV or traffic forecasting. Open-source libraries have been created to house the winning solutions, allowing parts of them to be used again in future contests. Because speed is crucial, automated data manipulation and pattern identification are frequently employed. The other face of machine learning involves the more real-world challenge of how to fix an obsolescent business process or address a business challenge using algorithms and programs.

Startups Apply Artificial Intelligence To Supply Chain Disruptions

#artificialintelligence

Over the last two years a series of unexpected events has scrambled global supply chains. Coronavirus, war in Ukraine, Brexit and a container ship wedged in the Suez Canal have combined to delay deliveries of everything from bicycles to pet food. In response, a growing group of startups and established logistics firms has created a multi-billion dollar industry applying the latest technology to help businesses minimize the disruption. Interos Inc, Fero Labs, KlearNow Corp and others are using artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge tools so manufacturers and their customers can react more swiftly to supplier snarl-ups, monitor raw material availability and get through the bureaucratic thicket of cross-border trade. The market for new technology services focused on supply chains could be worth more than $20 billion a year in the next five years, analysts told Reuters.


Biden's disinformation board is authoritarian and reminds me of my life in China

The panel on'The Five' sounds off on DHS chief's defense of new bureaucracy The Biden administration announced the establishment of the Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) last week to be created within the Homeland Security Department (DHS), aiming to counter "misinformation related to homeland security." There are many unknowns about DGB. For example, we don't know how the members of DGB will be selected, what kind of power it will have, and how it defines misinformation. But the early signs are not promising. The vaguely defined roles and authorities of DGB have alarmed Americans, and many see the agency as the "Ministry of Truth" that George Orwell warned us about in his dystopian novel "1984."

AI in healthcare

By 2030, AI will get to different wellsprings of information to uncover designs in sickness and help therapy and care. Medical care frameworks will actually want to anticipate a singular gamble of specific illnesses and recommend preventive measures. Simulated intelligence will assist with decreasing sitting tight times for patients and further develop proficiency in clinics and wellbeing frameworks. At this season 10 years earlier, focuses and expert's work environments would flood with incapacitated people fit to be seen; today, clinicians and patients move actually through the structure. Related care has moved toward a reality, driven by long periods of gigantic strain on overall clinical benefits systems without enough gifted clinical specialists to truly zero in on their rapidly creating and developing peoples and forward jumps in solid advancement enabling impacts, for instance, data science and man-made thinking (AI).
