Google's DeepMind says it is close to achieving 'human-level' artificial intelligence

Daily Mail - Science & tech

DeepMind, a British company owned by Google, may be on the verge of achieving human-level artificial intelligence (AI). Nando de Freitas, a research scientist at DeepMind and machine learning professor at Oxford University, has said'the game is over' in regards to solving the hardest challenges in the race to achieve artificial general intelligence (AGI). AGI refers to a machine or program that has the ability to understand or learn any intellectual task that a human being can, and do so without training. According to De Freitas, the quest for scientists is now scaling up AI programs, such as with more data and computing power, to create an AGI. Earlier this week, DeepMind unveiled a new AI'agent' called Gato that can complete 604 different tasks'across a wide range of environments'. Gato uses a single neural network – a computing system with interconnected nodes that works like nerve cells in the human brain.

Hitting the Books: Why we need to treat the robots of tomorrow like tools


Do not be swayed by the dulcet dial-tones of tomorrow's AIs and their siren songs of the singularity. No matter how closely artificial intelligences and androids may come to look and act like humans, they'll never actually be humans, argue Paul Leonardi, Duca Family Professor of Technology Management at University of California Santa Barbara, and Tsedal Neeley, Naylor Fitzhugh Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School, in their new book The Digital Mindset: What It Really Takes to Thrive in the Age of Data, Algorithms, and AI -- and therefore should not be treated like humans. The pair contends in the excerpt below that in doing so, such hinders interaction with advanced technology and hampers its further development.

Enterprise architects take charge of the digital revolution


Joe McKendrick is an author and independent analyst who tracks the impact of information technology on management and markets. As an independent analyst, he has authored numerous research reports in partnership with Forbes Insights, IDC, and Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today, Inc. Enterprise architects have been adding a new designation to their titles: digital enterprise architect. That's because their roles have been expanding over the past few years, particularly with data analytics being added to their repertoires. That's the word from Thomas Erl, CEO of Arcitura Education, which provides technology skills training to thousands of professionals across the globe, and co-author of A Field Guide to Digital Transformation. "It's a new era for enterprise architects," he says.

Responsible adoption of AI in a cloud environment

MIT Technology Review

Thank you for joining us on “The cloud hub: From cloud chaos to clarity.” The transformative potential of algorithmic systems, the reach of their effects, combined with the paucity of supervision, can bring certain reputational, financial, and ethical risks. Responsible AI is required to provide assurance to users and build continuous trust in AI-based systems.…

How Artificial Intelligence is Changing the Future Landscape of Digital Marketing?


Bangalore Chamber of Industry & Commerce (BCIC) & Brigade Foundation collaborate to set up'Brigade- BCIC Skill Development Academy' AI will likely change the face of digital marketing in the future. It's less about what's going on right now and more about how trends are likely to emerge in the coming years. The power of artificial intelligence (AI) to open up exciting new possibilities in the field of digital marketing business. There are a host of different methods, tactics, and productivity gains under the AI wing. As AI becomes more available, agencies can now use it to analyze data, forecast future trends, and improve their brand's performance.

Launch of a new standard for AI security in Singapore


The adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) in various applications, from self-driving autonomous vehicles to AI-assisted medical diagnoses, has accelerated in recent years. From 2018 to 2020, there was a five-fold increase globally in the percentage of organisations deploying AI. While the adoption of AI brings numerous benefits, cybersecurity threats such as hacking pose a significant threat to AI systems, especially in applications where hackers may gain access to confidential information or cause automated systems to malfunction. Answering the call to protect the integrity of AI programmes and create trust in AI solutions, a team of NTU researchers and AI leaders has launched a new standard on AI security. Unveiled on 16 March 2022 at the Al Security Standard Launch Singapore TR 99:2021 Growth opportunities for government & industry adopting trustworthy Al, and published by Enterprise Singapore's Standards Consortium, the standard was developed from research led by NTU scientists Prof Liu Yang of NTU's School of Computer Science and Engineering, former research fellow Dr Xiaofei Xie and PhD candidate Mr David Berend.

Healthcare Ethics in AI: Can software Make Ethical Decisions?


As data analytics and other digital innovations become more broadly adopted in healthcare, artificial intelligence will move from an executive role to a supporting position in clinical decision-making. Hospitals are previously using AI tools to expand custom care strategy, verify patients in for appointments, and inquire "How can I pay my bill?" To respond to fundamental questions like. Healthcare ethics in AI is gaining traction as an "intelligent associate" for physicians and practitioners. AI helps radiologists examine images quicker and organize them in a good manner.

A quick guide to the most important AI law you've never heard of


But the world of EU legislation can be complicated and opaque. Here's a quick guide to everything you need to know about the EU's AI Act. The bill is currently being amended by members of the European Parliament and EU countries. The AI Act is hugely ambitious. It would require extra checks for "high risk" uses of AI that have the most potential to harm people.

It's never too early to get your AI ethics right


We all know when AI crosses an ethical line. What's less easy is understanding what each of these examples have in common, and drawing lessons that apply to early-stage companies. There are plenty of broad statements of AI ethics principles, but few tools for putting them into practice, especially ones tuned for the harsh realities of startups tight on money and time. That challenge extends to VCs too, who must increasingly attempt to assess whether founders have thought through how customers, partners and regulators might react to the ways they're using artificial intelligence. Even when founders have the best intentions, it's easy to cut corners.

The Future of Artificial Intelligence in Manufacturing Industries


Artificial intelligence (AI) is now transforming the manufacturing industry. AI can extend the sheer reach of potential applications in the manufacturing process from real-time equipment maintenance to virtual design that allows for new, improved, and customized products to a smart supply chain and the creation of new business models. Artificial intelligence (AI) in the manufacturing industry is being used across a variety of different application cases. It is being used as a way to enhance defect detection through sophisticated image processing algorithms that can then automatically categorize defects across any industrial object that it sees. The term artificial intelligence is used because these machines are artificially incorporated with human-like to perform tasks as we do.
