Top 10 Companies Working To Develop Artificial General Intelligence


Artificial intelligence has taken over the world, it is used to augment sectors like business, education, construction, healthcare, transportation, and more. Artificial intelligence is used to save lives, create next-gen technologies, and most importantly to create a better world for humans. The applications of AI seem to be endless. Though it might seem that AI is a futuristic sci-fi technology that is ahead of our times, it's not stopping at personalizing your social media experience or automating monotonous tasks. One Concern empowers decision-makers to prepare for, respond to and recover from natural disasters. It was started by Stanford-educated scientists and engineers, with the aim of making homes and cities safer.

AI in hiring might do more harm than good


The use of artificial intelligence in the hiring process has increased in recent years with companies turning to automated assessments, digital interviews, and data analytics to parse through resumes and screen candidates. But as IT strives for better diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), it turns out AI can do more harm than help if companies aren't strategic and thoughtful about how they implement the technology. "The bias usually comes from the data. If you don't have a representative data set, or any number of characteristics that you decide on, then of course you're not going to be properly, finding and evaluating applicants," says Jelena Kovačević, IEEE Fellow, William R. Berkley Professor, and Dean of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. The chief issue with AI's use in hiring is that, in an industry that has been predominantly male and white for decades, the historical data on which AI hiring systems are built will ultimately have an inherent bias.

AI will 'exacerbate' wealth inequality and help ultra-rich: Ex-Google exec


A dress worn this week by Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), which bore the message "tax the rich," set off a wave of debate over how best to address wealth inequality, as Congress weighs a $3.5 trillion spending bill that includes tax hikes on corporations and high-earning individuals. The debate coincides with the ongoing pandemic in which billionaires, many of whom are tech company founders, have added $1.8 trillion in wealth while consumers have come to depend increasingly on services like e-commerce and teleconference, according to a report released last month by the Institute for Policy Studies. In a new interview, artificial intelligence expert Kai Fu-Lee -- who worked as an executive at Google (GOOG, GOOGL), Apple (AAPL), and Microsoft (MSFT) -- attributed the rise of wealth inequality in part to the tech boom in recent decades, predicting that the trend will worsen in coming years with the continued emergence of AI. "We can just already see all the internet companies," says Lee, the co-author of a new book entitled "AI 2041: Ten Visions for Our Future." "Without AI, they probably would be only worth half of what they're worth, because AI helped them monetize." "When it's simultaneously making a small number of people ultra-rich and making many people jobless," he says.

It is powerful to project an image of the world into its digital mind making it to comprehend the immensity of the whole universe, its reality, causality, space-time. In pure life forms, there are material beings, energy beings and information entities. Material beings are natural objects of different scales, from elementary particles to the infinite universe, including our universe with its planets, stars, galaxies, clusters, etc. Energy beings are mostly composed of energy, they are imagined as a translucent glowing fluid or a collection of flames or electrical sparks or bolts or fire balls or ghosts.

These dating sites are actually good for finding serious relationships


Vaccine rates are increasing, we're starting to venture out into the world, and dating in real life has finally become an option again. The pandemic may have changed dating forever, but one thing that hasn't is that meeting people can be damn hard. Most online dating sites are a mix of both, and after living with online dating as an increasingly ubiquitous option for the past 20 years, the general public (mostly) sees dating sites as a super normal means to find casual dates or a hookup. But what if you're looking for a serious relationship that lasts? What if you just don't want to be alone on Valentine's Day ever again?

AI Weekly: UN proposes moratorium on 'risky' AI while ICLR solicits blog posts


The Transform Technology Summits start October 13th with Low-Code/No Code: Enabling Enterprise Agility. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet this week called for a moratorium on the sale and use of AI systems that pose "a serious risk to human rights." Bachelet said adequate safeguards must be put in place before development resumes on such systems and that any systems that can't be used in compliance with international human rights law should be banned. "AI can be a force for good, helping societies overcome some of the great challenges of our times. But AI technologies can have negative, even catastrophic, effects if they are used without sufficient regard to how they affect people's human rights," Bachelet said.

Why China and the USA are the biggest markets for AI in the coming future?

Among the economic giants of the world, the USA and China have taken over the journey. The navigation is still on by the early adopters and more familiar one's towards exploring the further transformation which can take in this field.

The Case for Transparent AI


I can trace it back to when I watched a video of America's Got Talent. It started with singers, but soon it moved on to other categories, including illusionists. That was enough to tell Facebook's algorithms that I had to be interested in magic and that it should show me more of what it deduced I wanted to see. Now I have to be careful, because if I click on any of that content, it will reinforce the algorithm's notion that I must really be interested in card tricks, and pretty soon that's all Facebook will ever show me. Even if it was all just a passing curiosity.
