How Neuroscience Inspires AI


Every person inherits some stock of intelligence. But without an investment strategy, intelligence will not carry dividends. Financial gurus ranging from Warren Buffet to Ray Dalio will tell you that the secret to investing is diversification. As a civilization, we take this advice to heart and to a whole other level: we diversify by inventing artificial intelligence that can assist, augment, or automate. Can we invent artificial intelligence ex nihilo, without peeking at human intelligence for inspiration?

Researchers Decode Brain Scans To Generate Text


Last month, Elon Musk's Neuralink demonstrated that it is possible to monitor brain activity from our phones. There were speculations around Neuralink of what potential it has for the future generations. Decoding brain signals has great implications in medicine. A disabled person can be assisted, can understand what a speechless person is feeling and more. So, can we know what someone is thinking?

IT Pros on the Future of Automation and AI in ITSM - Orange Matter


Think about your last online order. If you're a frequent online shopper and have created profiles for sites you visit often (*raises hand*), then you're probably familiar with customized recommendations. Based on your purchase history, location, and other factors, the website may suggest other items you might be interested in buying. And if you're on the site long enough, chatbots may appear asking if you have questions or need assistance locating something. These are just two examples of how artificial intelligence (AI) and automation have made the consumer experience easier and created ways to help businesses understand their buying patterns and what they need.

TRON Plagued By Infestation Of dApp Bots: AnChain Report


AnChain is a new analytics startup, and it's on a mission: to uncover dApp bots wherever they hide. During Q1 of 2019, the firm surveyed TRON's top ten gambling dApps and found a large number of bots. Roughly 31% of surveyed accounts and 19% of transactions were bot-driven, accounting for a whopping $270 million of dApp volume. For TRON's critics, this is an enticing follow-up to reports about TRON's bot-driven Twitter traffic. It previously found that on EOS, bots accounted for 51% of surveyed accounts and 75% of transactions.

Access Earth adding AI and social distancing to its app


Boost My Business shines a spotlight on a tech start-up whose app maps accessibility via its users and AI. Fiona Alston chatted to Matthew McCann CEO of Access Earth about how his app helps users find businesses which have the accessibility requirements for their particular needs. McCann has cerebral palsy and uses a rollator to get around, and it's his personal experience of trying to access businesses like restaurants and hotels which proved the need for the software. "Growing up it was difficult for me to find accessibility information whether it was going out to eat somewhere or going to the shops and for me that's a really important thing to know ahead of time," says McCann. "I realised then going into college I wanted to be able to do something about that - figuring out the world isn't accessible at the moment and I wanted to make that change," he says.

Basic Data Visualization using Matplotlib in 3 mins - Let's Discuss Stuff


Data visualization helps to tell stories by curating data into a form that is easier to understand. Python provides a built-in library matplotlib for easier visualization of plots. In this article, I will be explaining 5 of the most common basic plots used for visualization. In this article, I will be using the heart disease prediction dataset from Kaggle for providing some examples. The link for the dataset has been attached below for your future practice.

Trump approves TikTok deal with Oracle and Walmart 'in concept'


TikTok appears to have avoided a US ban at the last minute... probably. President Trump has agreed to a deal "in concept" (via CNBC) that theoretically allays US security issues while letting it operate in the country. True to earlier discussions, Oracle and Walmart would claim a 20% investment stake in a newly formed TikTok Global company that will run the social video service's business in the US and "most of the users" worldwide. Oracle would become TikTok's "secure cloud provider" and hold on to American data, while Walmart would wield its e-commerce and advertising technology. The deal will also see TikTok Global pay over $5 billion in "new tax dollars" to the US Treasury, and join with Oracle, Walmart and investors like Coatue and Sequoia to launch an AI-powered educational video curriculum. The program would teach kids basics like math, reading and science, as well as more advanced subjects like computer engineering.

Machine Learning Biases Might Define Minority Health Outcomes


Whether or not you're aware, your Google searches, questions posed to Siri, and Facebook timeline all rely on artificial intelligence (AI) to perform effectively. Artificial intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines. The goal of artificial intelligence is to build models that can perform specific tasks as intelligently as humans can, if not better. Much of the AI you encounter on a daily basis uses a technique known as machine learning, which uses predictive modeling to generate accurate predictions when given random quantities of data. Because predictive models are built to find relational patterns in data, they learn to favor efficiency over fairness.
