Organizations need to understand user behavior using data to improve their market position. Therefore, businesses solicit user feedback in a variety of ways. For example, Garmin, a well-known technology business, has a dedicated page for customers to submit ideas and suggestions. Similarly, Hotjar utilizes usability testing, whereas Zapier focuses on user feedback surveys. Personalization is another important aspect linked to user experience.


Patients recognize role of artificial intelligence in diagnosis, treatment

#artificialintelligence

With artificial intelligence making its way into daily life, healthcare, including ophthalmology, is no exception. Ophthalmology, with its heavy reliance on imaging, is an innovator in the field of AI in medicine. Although the opportunities for patients and health care professionals are great, hurdles to fully integrating AI remain, including economic, ethical, and data-privacy issues. "AI is impacting health care at every level, from the provider to the payer to pharma," according to Dan Riskin, MD, CEO and founder of Verantos, a health care data company in Palo Alto, California, that uses AI to sort through real world evidence. The question remains, just how to patients feel about the use of AI in the diagnosis and treatment of their illnesses? In a patient survey conducted in December 2019, 66% of respondents said AI plays a large role in their diagnosis and treatment and thought it was important.

Google Assistant arrives on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4

ZDNet

Matthew Miller started using mobile devices in 1997 and has been writing news, reviews, and opinion pieces ever since. He was a co-host, with Kevin Tofel, of the MobileTechRoundup podcast for 13 years and authored three Wiley Companion series books. Last year we were impressed with the Samsung Google partnership and Samsung's efforts to integrate Wear OS into its smartwatches running its Samsung Exynos mobile processor. We then purchased and tested the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and deemed it a worthy competitor to the Apple Watch. A few months ago Samsung released a major software update that improved health and wellness features, while also confirming to the public that Google Assistant was still in the works.

The Download: DeepMind's AI shortcomings, and China's social media translation problem

MIT Technology Review

Earlier this month, DeepMind presented a new "generalist" AI model called Gato. The model can play the video game Atari, caption images, chat, and stack blocks with a real robot arm, the Alphabet-owned AI lab announced. All in all, Gato can do hundreds of different tasks. But while Gato is undeniably fascinating, in the week since its release some researchers have got a bit carried away. One of DeepMind's top researchers and a coauthor of the Gato paper, Nando de Freitas, couldn't contain his excitement.


Clearview AI fined £7.5 million and told to delete all UK facial recognition data

Engadget

Clearview AI has been fined £7.55 million ($9.5 million) by the UK's privacy watchdog for illegally scraping the facial images of UK residents from social media and the web. It was also ordered to stop obtaining the data of UK residents and to delete any it has already collected. "The company not only enables identification of those people, but effectively monitors their behavior and offers it as a commercial service. That is unacceptable," said UK information commissioner John Edwards in a statement. The UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) opened a joint investigation with Australia into Clearview AI back in 2020, and issued a preliminary fine of £17 million ($21.4 million) against the company late last year.


Examining Marketing Impact of EU AI Act

#artificialintelligence

On April 21, the EU officially proposed the Artificial Intelligence Act, outlining the ability to monitor, regulate and ban uses of machine learning technology. The goal, according to officials, is to invest in and accelerate the use of AI in the EU, bolstering the economy while also ensuring consistency, addressing global challenges and establishing trust with human users. AI use cases with unacceptable risk will be banned outright. High-risk applications, similarly, pose a high risk to health, safety and fundamental rights, though the debate around the definition of "high risk" has been raging since last year, with more than 300 organizations weighing in. These AI applications are allowed on the market only if certain safeguards are in place, such as human oversight, transparency and traceability.


Researching EU regulation around AI

AIHub

Developments in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) are moving quickly. The EU is working hard to establish rules around AI and to determine which systems are welcome and which are not. But how does the EU do this when the biggest players, the US and China, often have different ethical views? Political economist Daniel Mügge and his team will conduct research into how the EU conducts its'AI diplomacy' and will sketch potential future scenarios. "Our research is essentially about regulation around AI", says political economist Daniel Mügge.
