NSW Artificial Intelligence Advisory Committee Inaugural Members Named - AI Summary

#artificialintelligence

The New South Wales government has named the 11 individuals who will form the NSW Artificial Intelligence Advisory Committee and play a role in how AI is used in the state. He will be joined by Microsoft Australia national technology officer Lee Hickin; Services Australia chief data officer Maria Milosavljevic; Australian Human Rights Commission human rights commissioner Edward Santow; Women in Data Science Network Sydney ambassador and School of Illinois data and AI research fellow Theresa Anderson; University of Technology Sydney data science executive director Fang Chen; Innovations Accelerated chief legal and data ethics officer Aurelie Jacquet; Australian Computer Society AI and ethics technical committee chair Peter Leonard; Gradient Institute co-founder William (Bill) Simpson Young; Quantium Health and Government CEO Neil Soderlund; and Public Purpose principal Martin Stewart-Weeks. Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said the committee would advise the state government on the use of AI for decision-making and service delivery, and what ethical AI policies should look like. "AI is becoming more prevalent in our day-to-day life and the NSW Government is determined to lead the way in its use and to drive improvements wherever possible, while ensuring it's done in an ethical way." Establishing the committee is part of the state government's AI strategy in which it has pledged that transparency will be the focus and vowed to make the state the digital capital of the southern hemisphere in the next three years.


10 Smart Artificial Intelligence (AI) Stocks to Buy

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI), for all of its futuristic elements, is not a new category – not by a long shot. The roots of the technology go all the way back to the late 1950s, when computers started to become much more powerful. But the proliferation of AI stocks hasn't come until much more recently, as artificial intelligence became commercially viable over the past decade or so. Artificial intelligence uses algorithms to detect patterns, which can help businesses create predictions that ultimately lower costs, improve productivity and increase revenues. As technological breakthroughs arise, AI models continue to scale.


2 Artificial Intelligence Stocks You Can Buy and Hold for the Next Decade

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become an emerging growth sector in the tech economy. Both start-ups and established tech companies are working to capitalize on the technology. Analysts at Grand View Research estimate the AI market could expand to $1.8 trillion annually by 2030, suggesting a compound annual growth rate of 38% over the next eight years. These increases should serve as a solid tailwind for numerous AI stocks, and both Alphabet (GOOGL 5.11%) (GOOG 5.20%) and Palantir (PLTR 7.72%) appear well-positioned to enrich long-term investors through AI. Let's find out a bit more about these two artificial intelligence stocks.


Federal report on self-driving car crashes is important but incomplete

#artificialintelligence

Earlier this month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a report documenting crashes involving cars with automated driving components. The report looked at data on Automated Driving Systems (commonly referred to as "self-driving cars") and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (cars equipped with lane-keeping technology and adaptive cruise control, such as Tesla's Autopilot). The New York Times covered the report's release. A quick scroll through Twitter showed that the public divided: Is this technology something to praise, or something to fear? Ultimately, the NHTSA report, while an essential first step, doesn't leave a clear picture whether self-driving cars will prevent crashes when they arrive in the future.


Video game industry on the end of Roe: I'm 'not proud to be an American'

Washington Post - Technology News

Shortly after Twitch personality Ali "Myth" Kabbani booted up his live stream on Friday, he crossed his arms and turned to the camera on his desk in Los Angeles. "By the way, chat, Roe v. Wade was overturned. This is a tragic f------ 'L' for America, once again," said Kabbani, who boasts more than 7.4 million followers on Twitch. "It's all going to come down to your local government or your state government now." Friday morning, the Supreme Court overturned the nearly 50 year precedent set by Roe v. Wade.


Machine Learning With Google Cloud - AI Summary

#artificialintelligence

From their DeepMind project beating champions of Alpha Go at their own game, to recent announcements Magneta and Springboard, not to mention driverless cars, its clear that AI and Machine Learning are central to Google's strategy across its vast portfolio. In a recent interview with Hollywood Reporter, Alphabet chairman Eric Schmidt played down the fears that surround advancements in AI: 'To be clear, we're not talking about consciousness, we're not talking about souls, we're not talking about independent creativity." However, being acutely aware of the concerns around intelligent technology, the company's AI research division Google Brain recently published an AI Precision Safety whitepaper. Powerful Infrastructure Underpinning all of these projects, as well as the company's flagship Search, Translate and Youtube products is Google Cloud Platform, providing developers with the tools to build a range of programs from simple websites to complex, intelligent applications. As part of our AI in Business Festival, we spoke to Miles Ward, Global Head of Solutions at Google Cloud Platform, to find out more about the machine learning tools they offer to developers.

AI Tool Lets Users Edit Images With Their Thoughts

#artificialintelligence

Soon, we won't need to use the Help function. The computer will sense that we have a problem and come to the rescue by itself. This is one of the possible implications of new research at University of Copenhagen and University of Helsinki. "We can make a computer edit images entirely based on thoughts generated by human subjects. The computer has absolutely no prior information about which features it is supposed to edit or how. Nobody has ever done this before," says Associate Professor Tuukka Ruotsalo, Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen.


Why is Toyota Developing Humanoid Robots?

#artificialintelligence

Have you ever heard of T-HR3?First launched by Toyota in 2017, it's a humanoid robot capable of flexible movements that mirror the actions of its remote human operator, and of sharing the force exerted by and on the robot with the operator using force feedback.The new and improved T-HR3, which the company will demonstrate at the 2019 International Robotic Exhibition in Tokyo, is now able to execute more difficult tasks than before, including walking in a more natural manner.What new robotics functions did the development team achieve, and what kind of future does Toyota hope to realize with this research? One lucky Toyota PR team member met with T-HR3 Development Team Leader Tomohisa Moridaira to find out.


Global Big Data Conference

#artificialintelligence

FROM CYBER OPERATIONS to disinformation, artificial intelligence extends the reach of national security threats that can target individuals and whole societies with precision, speed, and scale. As the US competes to stay ahead, the intelligence community is grappling with the fits and starts of the impending revolution brought on by AI. The US intelligence community has launched initiatives to grapple with AI's implications and ethical uses, and analysts have begun to conceptualize how AI will revolutionize their discipline, yet these approaches and other practical applications of such technologies by the IC have been largely fragmented. As experts sound the alarm that the US is not prepared to defend itself against AI by its strategic rival, China, Congress has called for the IC to produce a plan for integration of such technologies into workflows to create an "AI digital ecosystem" in the 2022 Intelligence Authorization Act. The term AI is used for a group of technologies that solve problems or perform tasks that mimic humanlike perception, cognition, learning, planning, communication, or actions.


Meet Proteus, Amazon's new autonomous robot

Mashable

Amazon unveiled its latest fully autonomous robot, Proteus, and it's raising questions about what it could mean for human employees. The bot is designed to autonomously work and maneuver around employees, prioritizing safe interactions between technology and people, while helping employees with tasks such as lifting and moving GoCarts. With Amazon already under fire for its mistreatment of warehouse workers, the introduction of more automation in Amazon facilities could mean less jobs for humans.
