As the world of emerging technologies such as big data, robotics, disruptive tech and Internet of Things is quickly becoming part of our everyday lives, Artificial intelligence will continue to play a fundamental contributor to the future of these innovative technologies. With this in mind, AI is already impacting the long term future of virtually every industry and this will certainly have an impact on the legal profession however, it will also create opportunity too. With all Technologies regardless of its purpose, human brainpower will play a fundamental part in its creation from R&D to deploying artificial intelligence. Over the past 5yrs, I've constantly advised my junior lawyers to focus on in-house roles with a focus on software, algorithms, Data Cloud (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS) and FinTech as it'd the future and we're certainly very dependent on it even more than ever during this pandemic. Regardless of our current dependency, once we all return to normality, we have now become accustomed to using and embracing technology so that won't change.
The advent of technology has brought convenience to life. Believe it or not, survival without technology is one of the darkest thoughts that can cross your mind in the digital era. The world has become a global village thanks to rapid digitization, but it has also opened doors for many fraudsters to step in and terrify people. Organizations in every sector are unsafe due to increasing ransomware and data breaches. Considering the increasing number of frauds, companies opt for robust verification systems with OCR technology to only onboard legitimate customers.
Artificial Intelligence and machine learning have been hot topics in 2020 as AI and ML technologies increasingly find their way into everything from advanced quantum computing systems and leading-edge medical diagnostic systems to consumer electronics and "smart" personal assistants. Revenue generated by AI hardware, software and services is expected to reach $156.5 billion worldwide this year, according to market researcher IDC, up 12.3 percent from 2019. But it can be easy to lose sight of the forest for the trees when it comes to trends in the development and use of AI and ML technologies. As we approach the end of a turbulent 2020, here's a big-picture look at five key AI and machine learning trends– not just in the types of applications they are finding their way into, but also in how they are being developed and the ways they are being used. Hyperautomation, an IT mega-trend identified by market research firm Gartner, is the idea that most anything within an organization that can be automated – such as legacy business processes – should be automated.
Find out how to implement AI responsibly--join our free webinar Responsible AI in Practice on December 15 to learn about fairness, AI in the law, and AI security from experts. The use of machine learning (ML) applications has moved beyond the domains of academia and research into mainstream product development across industries looking to add artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. Along with the increase in AI and ML applications is a growing interest in principles, tools, and best practices for deploying AI ethically and responsibly. In efforts to organize ethical, responsible tools and processes around a common collective, a number of names have been bandied about, including Ethical AI, Human Centered AI, and Responsible AI. Based on what we've seen in industry, several companies, including some major cloud providers, have focused on the term Responsible AI, and we'll do the same in this post.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is swiftly fueling the development of a more dynamic world. AI, a subfield of computer science that is interconnected with other disciplines, promises greater efficiency and higher levels of automation and autonomy. Simply put, it is a dual-use technology at the heart of the fourth industrial revolution. Together with machine learning (ML) -- a subfield of AI that analyzes large volumes of data to find patterns via algorithms -- enterprises, organizations, and governments are able to perform impressive feats that ultimately drive innovation and better business. The use of both AI and ML in business is rampant.
Differential privacy is a data anonymization technique that's used by major technology companies such as Apple and Google. The goal of differential privacy is simple: allow data analysts to build accurate models without sacrificing the privacy of the individual data points. But what does "sacrificing the privacy of the data points" mean? Well, let's think about an example. Suppose I have a dataset that contains information (age, gender, treatment, marriage status, other medical conditions, etc.) about every person who was treated for breast cancer at Hospital X.
The significance of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AIML) has increased by much in technology in recent years. It has gone to a point where they are helping businesses gain an advantage over their competitors. With the ever-increasing volumes of data generated each day, it becomes essential to process it in real-time. This is where AIML comes into the picture as the technology can help process and analyze volumes of data within minutes. The relevance of IoT devices, too, has been on the rise.
The future of corporate cybersecurity seems to lie in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) solutions, a new report from global IT company Wipro suggests. According to Wipro's annual State of Cybersecurity Report (SOCR), almost half (49 percent) of all cybersecurity-related patents filed in the last four years have centered on AI and ML application. Almost half of the 200 organizations that participated in the report also said they are expanding cognitive detection capabilities to tackle unknown attacks in their Security Operations Centers (SOC). From a global perspective, one of the main threats for organizations in the private sector seems to be potential espionage attacks from nation-states. Almost all (86 percent) cyberattacks that came from state-sponsored actors fall under the espionage category and almost half (46 percent) of those attacks targeted the private sector.
Cyber-criminals are just getting started with their malicious targeting and abuse of artificial intelligence (AI), according to a new report from Europol and the UN. Compiled with help from Trend Micro, the Malicious Uses and Abuses of Artificial Intelligence report predicts AI will in the future be used as both attack vector and attack surface. In effect, that means cyber-criminals are looking for ways to use AI tools in attacks, but also methods via which to compromise or sabotage existing AI systems, like those used in image and voice recognition and malware detection. The report warned that, while deepfakes are the most talked about malicious use of AI, there are many other use cases which could be under development. These include machine learning or AI systems designed to produce highly convincing and customized social engineering content at scale, or perhaps to automatically identify the high-value systems and data in a compromised network that should be exfiltrated.
Modern day enterprise security is like guarding a fortress that is being attacked on all fronts, from digital infrastructure to applications to network endpoints. That complexity is why AI technologies such as deep learning and machine learning have emerged as game-changing defensive weapons in the enterprise's arsenal over the past three years. There is no other technology that can keep up. It has the ability to rapidly analyze billions of data points, and glean patterns to help a company act intelligently and instantaneously to neutralize many potential threats. Beginning about five years ago, investors started pumping hundreds of millions of dollars into a wave of new security startups that leverage AI, including CrowdStrike, Darktrace, Vectra AI, and Vade Secure, among others.
