Images Matter!


For part of the lecture, I was preparing discussions surrounding AI and the future of work. I wanted to discuss how execution of different professional tasks were changing with technology, and what that means for the future of certain industries or occupational areas. I wanted to underline that some tasks like repetitive transactions, large scale iterations, standard rule applications are better done with AI – as long as they were the right solution for the context and problem, and were developed responsibly and monitored continuously. On the flip side, certain skills and tasks that include leading, empathizing, creating are to be left to humans – AI systems neither have the capacity or capability, nor should they be entrusted with such tasks. I wanted to add some visuals to the presentation and also check out what is currently being depicted in the search results.

Best usages of Artificial Intelligence in everyday life (2022) - Dataconomy


There are so many great applications of Artificial Intelligence in daily life, by using machine learning and other techniques in the background. AI is everywhere in our lives, from reading our emails to receiving driving directions to obtaining music or movie suggestions. Don't be scared of AI jargon; we've created a detailed AI glossary for the most commonly used Artificial Intelligence terms and the basics of Artificial Intelligence. Now if you're ready, let's look at how we use AI in 2022. Artificial intelligence (AI) appears in popular culture most often as a group of intelligent robots bent on destroying humanity, or at the very least a stunning theme park. We're safe for now because machines with general artificial intelligence don't yet exist, and they aren't expected to anytime soon. You can learn the risk and benefits of Artificial Intelligence with this article.

Google is using AI to better detect searches from people in crisis


Every day, the company fields searches on topics like suicide, sexual assault, and domestic abuse. But Google wants to do more to direct people to the information they need, and says new AI techniques that better parse the complexities of language are helping. Specifically, Google is integrating its latest machine learning model, MUM, into its search engine to "more accurately detect a wider range of personal crisis searches." The company unveiled MUM at its IO conference last year, and has since used it to augment search with features that try to answer questions connected to the original search. In this case, MUM will be able to spot search queries related to difficult personal situations that earlier search tools could not, says Anne Merritt, a Google product manager for health and information quality.

How Google plans to use its latest AI model to help people in crisis


Google on Wednesday outlined ways it's using AI models to deliver better Search results to people in crisis. That means more effectively giving people trustworthy and useful information when they need it -- regarding topics like suicide, sexual assault or substance abuse -- while avoiding potentially shocking or harmful content. Most people use Google Chrome as their default browser. But privacy is another matter for the online ad giant. In the coming weeks, Google said it plans to deploy MUM (Multitask Unified Model), its latest AI model, to improve Search results for users in crisis.

Google applies advanced AI to suicide prevention and reducing graphic search results


Google has been rolling out smarter Artificial Intelligence systems, and says it is now putting them to work to help keep people safe. In particular, the search giant shared new information Wednesday about how it is using these advanced systems for suicide and domestic violence prevention, and to make sure people don't see graphic content when that's not what they're looking for. When people search phrases related to suicide or domestic violence, Google will surface an information box with details about how to seek help. It populates these boxes with phone numbers and other resources that it creates in partnership with local organizations and experts. But Google found that not all search phrases related to moments of personal crisis are explicit, and many are geographically specific.

Accelerating molecular optimization with AI


Many of today's most urgent problems demand new molecules and materials, from antimicrobial drugs to fight superbugs and antivirals to treat novel pandemics to more sustainable photosensitive coatings for semiconductors and next-generation polymers to capture carbon dioxide right at its source. We can design these from scratch, using AI to expedite the otherwise expensive and slow process, or we can tweak existing molecules to fine-tune the properties we care about -- such as toxicity, activity, or stability. Starting from a known molecule is like getting a head start on the design and production of candidate molecules, as we know they have some of the characteristics we need, and we can use existing knowledge and manufacturing pipelines to synthesize and test them down the line. The challenge in this process, called molecular optimization, is that tweaking an existing molecule can produce a huge number of variants. They won't all have the desired properties, and evaluating them empirically to find those that do would take too much time and money to be feasible.

Latent gaze information in highly dynamic decision-tasks Artificial Intelligence

Digitization is penetrating more and more areas of life. Tasks are increasingly being completed digitally, and are therefore not only fulfilled faster, more efficiently but also more purposefully and successfully. The rapid developments in the field of artificial intelligence in recent years have played a major role in this, as they brought up many helpful approaches to build on. At the same time, the eyes, their movements, and the meaning of these movements are being progressively researched. The combination of these developments has led to exciting approaches. In this dissertation, I present some of these approaches which I worked on during my Ph.D. First, I provide insight into the development of models that use artificial intelligence to connect eye movements with visual expertise. This is demonstrated for two domains or rather groups of people: athletes in decision-making actions and surgeons in arthroscopic procedures. The resulting models can be considered as digital diagnostic models for automatic expertise recognition. Furthermore, I show approaches that investigate the transferability of eye movement patterns to different expertise domains and subsequently, important aspects of techniques for generalization. Finally, I address the temporal detection of confusion based on eye movement data. The results suggest the use of the resulting model as a clock signal for possible digital assistance options in the training of young professionals. An interesting aspect of my research is that I was able to draw on very valuable data from DFB youth elite athletes as well as on long-standing experts in arthroscopy. In particular, the work with the DFB data attracted the interest of radio and print media, namely DeutschlandFunk Nova and SWR DasDing. All resulting articles presented here have been published in internationally renowned journals or at conferences.
