Patients recognize role of artificial intelligence in diagnosis, treatment


With artificial intelligence making its way into daily life, healthcare, including ophthalmology, is no exception. Ophthalmology, with its heavy reliance on imaging, is an innovator in the field of AI in medicine. Although the opportunities for patients and health care professionals are great, hurdles to fully integrating AI remain, including economic, ethical, and data-privacy issues. "AI is impacting health care at every level, from the provider to the payer to pharma," according to Dan Riskin, MD, CEO and founder of Verantos, a health care data company in Palo Alto, California, that uses AI to sort through real world evidence. The question remains, just how to patients feel about the use of AI in the diagnosis and treatment of their illnesses? In a patient survey conducted in December 2019, 66% of respondents said AI plays a large role in their diagnosis and treatment and thought it was important.

Council Post: What You Need To Know About The New Threat: Poisoned AI


John Giordani has extensive experience in cybersecurity and information assurance. He is Chief Information Security Officer at NCHENG LLP. Machine learning relies on data to make predictions. Data is just information, and information can be stored in almost any medium and be called a "dataset." Datasets are great sources of information, but they are not always reliable. That's where artificial intelligence comes in.

Adoption of Artificial Intelligence in Indian Army's C4ISR: Here is what the Chief said


One of the major lessons learnt from the ongoing Ukraine-Russia war is that multi-domain battle space is getting more influenced by technology. And these include usage of swarms of drones, missiles, unmanned ground vehicles and more. And all of these are being driven by Artificial Intelligence or computer algorithms – these are used in the war zones to not only process huge quantities of information, but have the ability to make decisions. "Artificial intelligence is definitely being leveraged for enhancing the current C4ISR capabilities. The National Task Force had identified the 12 AI domains and the Indian Army has since undertaken projects both in-house as well as with the industry, especially deep tech start-ups," the Indian Army Chief Gen Manoj Pande told Financial Express Online.

The future is now as driverless trucking hits nation's highways


Many Americans might not realize that driverless tractor-trailers are currently navigating the nation's highways, hitting the open road with absolutely nobody behind the wheel. Many of us have ridden in a smaller car -- like a Tesla -- that has a driverless feature, but to be in a large freight truck that is maneuvering through cities and highways is a completely different ballgame. It's the future of the industry, but the future is already here. Autonomous driving technology company TuSimple was founded in San Diego in 2015 with a mission to improve the safety and efficiency of the trucking industry. TuSimple is a developer of heavy-duty, self-driving trucks and the autonomous startup has already created a freight network along the Sun Belt from Phoenix to Houston.

Choose Laptop For Machine Learning And Computervision (2022)


Choosing a laptop is currently the best choice for computer vision and deep learning. In fact, due to the shortage of microchips in manufacturing and mining, the prices of video cards are very high and the laptop is a good alternative. We will see how to choose a laptop, usable in computer vision with good results, based on the main characteristics. To choose the right laptop the main component to consider is the graphics card. In this, the reference brand is Nvidia because most of the libraries are compatible with this graphics card.

UK fines Clearview AI £7.5M for scraping citizens' data


Clearview AI has been fined £7.5 million by the UK's privacy watchdog for scraping the online data of citizens without their explicit consent. The controversial facial recognition provider has scraped billions of images of people across the web for its system. Understandably, it caught the attention of regulators and rights groups from around the world. In November 2021, the UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) imposed a potential fine of just over £17 million on Clearview AI. Today's announcement suggests Clearview AI got off relatively lightly.

UK privacy watchdog fines Clearview AI £7.5m and orders UK data to be deleted


Since completing a degree in journalism, Aimee has had her fair share of covering various topics, including business, retail, manufacturing, and travel. She continues to expand her repertoire as a tech journalist with ZDNet. The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has fined controversial facial recognition company Clearview AI £7.5 million ($9.4 million) for breaching UK data protection laws and has issued an enforcement notice ordering the company to stop obtaining and using data of UK residents, and to delete the data from its systems. In its finding, the ICO detailed how Clearview AI failed to inform people in the UK that it was collecting their images from the web and social media to create a global online database that could be used for facial recognition; failed to have a lawful reason for collecting people's information; failed to have a process in place to stop the data being retained indefinitely; and failed to meet data protection standards required for biometric data under the General Data Protection Regulation. The ICO also found the company asked for additional personal information, including photos, when asked by members of the public if they were on their database.

Machine Learning for Accounting with Python


This course, Machine Learning for Accounting with Python, introduces machine learning algorithms (models) and their applications in accounting problems. It covers classification, regression, clustering, text analysis, time series analysis. This course provides an entry point for students to be able to apply proper machine learning models on business related datasets with Python to solve various problems. Accounting Data Analytics with Python is a prerequisite for this course. This course is running on the same platform (Jupyter Notebook) as that of the prerequisite course.

Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning in Finance


This course aims at providing an introductory and broad overview of the field of ML with the focus on applications on Finance. Supervised Machine Learning methods are used in the capstone project to predict bank closures. Simultaneously, while this course can be taken as a separate course, it serves as a preview of topics that are covered in more details in subsequent modules of the specialization Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning in Finance. The goal of Guided Tour of Machine Learning in Finance is to get a sense of what Machine Learning is, what it is for and in how many different financial problems it can be applied to. The course is designed for three categories of students: Practitioners working at financial institutions such as banks, asset management firms or hedge funds Individuals interested in applications of ML for personal day trading Current full-time students pursuing a degree in Finance, Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or other related disciplines who want to learn about practical applications of ML in Finance Experience with Python (including numpy, pandas, and IPython/Jupyter notebooks), linear algebra, basic probability theory and basic calculus is necessary to complete assignments in this course.
