PODCAST Artificial Connect uses AI to generate automated local event announcements


In the in the local market, especially if it comes to local journalism and to the event market and the first time we heard that we thought well that, that's interesting and then we I think we went on with our other projects and the second time we heard another customer telling us about the same problem, we got more and more interested in that and then we asked a lot of media companies in Germany, what they are thinking about this specific problem and if we would solve that problem would that be a high would that provide a high value, if we would develop an automated solution for this specific task. So most of of the directors and so on we spoke to.

Five big mistakes that people make about AI


A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by Tim Hughes, of DLA Ignite, about the five biggest mistakes that people make about AI and its impact on the workplace. This article is based on the full interview, which you can find here. It is the use of machinery to replicate a unique human activity, from punch cards that operated sophisticated weaving looms during the industrial revolution, to mid-twentieth century business computers that calculated bills and operated the payroll. Very often these activities are repetitive, error-prone, and in some cases life-threatening. The principle of automation is nearly always the same.

What if I told a story here, how would that story start?" Thus, the summarization prompt: "My second grader asked me what this passage means: …" When a given prompt isn't working and GPT-3 keeps pivoting into other modes of completion, that may mean that one hasn't constrained it enough by imitating a correct output, and one needs to go further; writing the first few words or sentence of the target output may be necessary.

Futurist in London: The Future of Artificial Intelligence, British Museum


Firstly, I'd like to thank Lina and Stephen from LoopMe, the world's largest mobile video advertising platform, for inviting me to be this year's keynote to present the "Future of Artificial Intelligence" at the British Museum in London the other week. All in all it was an eclectic day, after an interview which you can see below, I discussed, and showed, just how far Artificial Intelligence (AI) has come in just the past four years, lifting the kimono as they say on the latest generation of Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN's) and so called "Creative Machines" that are being used to innovate new products, including aircraft, clothes, other AI's, robots, software and shoes, as well as compose and compile best selling pop songs, and create scarily realistic high definition fake news clips, after which I moved onto the impact that the forthcoming so called "Quantum AI" revolution, and self-learning brain inspired Neuromorphic computers, that will pack the power of today's biggest supercomputers into a fingernail, will have on the future pace and direction of AI development. As for the remainder of the day, and the line up, it was as interesting as it was diverse. There were luminaries such as Saqib Shaikh from Microsoft who despite being legally blind has risen to fame for using his immense drive and determination to develop AI powered solutions that help disabled people everywhere better understand and navigate the world around them, as well as Alan Kelly, Ireland's "most awarded creative," and the Creative Director of Rothco, whose recent work with the Times newspaper saw him and his team use AI and speech synthesis to help them "unsilence" JFK, and allow him to finally speak the state of the union address he was going to deliver on the day of his fatal shooting in his own voice. There were also speakers and panellists like Roger Highfield, the director of the UK Science Museum who was discussing some of the latest breakthroughs he's seen in robotics and AI, such as Nvidia's recent "fake" celebrity stunt, and Chris Russell from the Alan Turning Institute who discussed his work in using AI to create better "healthcare outcomes," as well as other executives from a range of organisations, from eConsultancy to News UK, who regailed the audience with insightful facts about the state of AI in the global advertising industry.

It's the start of a conversation we'll have all year with Hollywood's creators, consumers and observers. Most of all, we want to hear from you . Is Hollywood out of touch with your America? Here's what our critics and writers have to say: KENNETH TURAN on potent Hollywood visions that helped elect Trump TV's affluent bubble: MARY McNAMARA on Hollywood's reluctance to deal with class issues Fear of the powerful woman: JUSTIN CHANG on working women and men still behaving badly Realistic or cliche?: JEFFREY FLEISHMAN on film's working class men and women Building distrust: LORRAINE ALI on destructive TV portrayals of Muslims and how TV ...
