Artificial Intelligence In 2021 - The Developments So Far

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence is one of the most, if not the only disruptive technology that made a massive impact in the modern world. It is a concept that continues to reach a wider audience with regular developments and researches done by scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs who are working to advance the field. Before the pandemic wreaked havoc in 2020, machine learning, a branch of artificial intelligence was causing disruptions across industries. But during the COVID-19 pandemic, it became evident that self-teaching algorithms and smart machines will play a big role in the ongoing fight against the viral outbreak and serve our society in the future too. Artificial intelligence technology remains a key trend in our work world and personal world.


Move Over Artificial Intelligence, There Is A New AI In Town

#artificialintelligence

What is Augmented Intelligence and why should you care about it? The AI market is projected to grow to $190Billion by 2025. AI is being used in every industry and is projected to be a core skill for the future. So why is there a new AI? Augmented intelligence refers to the idea that humans and artificial intelligence combined can create better results than either alone.


AI – The Social Disruption

Interactive AI Magazine

Artificial intelligence, in the form of machine learning, has the potential to transform many safety-critical applications such as those in transportation and healthcare. However, despite significant investment and impressive demonstrations, such technologies have struggled to live up to their promises. To this end, this article illustrates that machine learning fundamentally lacks the ability to leverage top-down reasoning, a critical element in safety-critical systems. This is especially important in situations where uncertainty can grow very quickly, requiring adaption to unknowns. This fundamental lack of contextual reasoning, combined with a lack of understanding of what constitutes maturity in artificial intelligence-embedded systems, has significantly contributed to the failures of these systems.


AI for Social Impact

Interactive AI Magazine

Recommender systems are among today's most successful application areas of artificial intelligence. However, in the recommender systems research community, we have fallen prey to a McNamara fallacy to a worrying extent: In the majority of our research efforts, we rely almost exclusively on computational measures such as prediction accuracy, which are easier to make than applying other evaluation methods. However, it remains unclear whether small improvements in terms of such computational measures matter greatly and whether they lead us to better systems in practice. A paradigm shift in terms of our research culture and goals is therefore needed. We can no longer focus exclusively on abstract computational measures but must direct our attention to research questions that are more relevant and have more impact in the real world. In this work, we review the various ways of how recommender systems may create value; how they, positively or negatively, impact consumers, businesses, and the society; and how we can measure the resulting effects.



EU Proposes Restrictive New AI Regulations

#artificialintelligence

When Microsoft spends $19.7 billion on a company whose specialties included voice recognition and artificial intelligence (AI) as part of its health sector strategy, you know that AI in the medical field is here to stay. It only makes sense, then, that regulations regarding the technology would not be far behind. Thanks to a leaked document first reported by Politico, we now have our first look at what such regulations might look like in the European Union. The regulation document largely concerns "high-risk" usages of AI. That's not surprising, as the European Commission originally published a whitepaper in February 2020 outlining ideas for regulating such uses of the technology.


Artificial Intelligence–Enabled ECG may help Detect Aortic Stenosis, Finds Study

#artificialintelligence

Early detection of aortic stenosis (AS) is becoming increasingly important with a better outcome after aortic valve replacement in asymptomatic severe AS patients and a poor outcome in moderate AS. Therefore, researchers of the Mayo Clinic, USA, developed an AI-ECG using a convolutional neural network to identify patients with moderate to severe AS. It was a retrospective study in which researchers identified 258 607 adults [mean age 63 16.3 years; women 122 790 (48%)] with echocardiography and an ECG performed within 180 days using the Mayo Clinic Unified Data Platform (UDP). The researchers tested the use of an AI-ECG to help identify patients with moderate to severe aortic stenosis (AS). Using echocardiography data, the researchers identified moderate to severe AS in 9723 (3.7%) patients. They performed Artificial intelligence training in 129 788 (50%), validation in 25 893 (10%), and testing in 102 926 (40%) in randomly selected subjects.


5 Things You Didn't Know Anaconda Navigator Had

#artificialintelligence

Data scientists often use Anaconda Navigator [2], which houses popular and useful applications like JupyterLab, Jupyter Notebook, and RStudio. It is usually at these three applications where we tend to stop looking into this platform for other tools. As you navigate out of the home page or the home dashboard, you will see that there are the Environments, Learning, and Community sections. The latter two features are ones that we may miss, because they are not directly related to writing your own immediate code and working on your machine learning algorithm in the main notebook application. However, they are still important and may be something that you have not looked into yet.


5 profits of artificial intelligence in project management (PM) - ABC Money

#artificialintelligence

The Institute of project management (2019) review proves that artificial intelligence (AI) is disruptive – eighty-one % of five hundred and fifty-one respondents tell that their r and d center is influenced by AI technology. AI is a parasol course for any technology that imitates a human-like mind. Gartner sets AI as the app of high-level analytics and thought techniques, including machine education, to play functions, support, and automatized choices and behaviors. People give the basic info or "intelligence," and then AI can implement that deduction to a virtually infinite volume of info. Uniting duty states to create situation comes per week, accounting budgetary indications of range and plan progress, and chance forming are all features that AI technology can try in your program command software.


The LATAM Hub for Artificial Intelligence

Note: First 100 subscribers receive a free lifetime subscription. In May of 2018, a "center of excellence" for artificial intelligence opened in Medellín, Colombia. According to an article by Jared Wade, the center comes from a partnership between US-based Institute for Robotic Process Automation and Artificial Intelligence (IRPA AI) and Medellín-based startup incubator, Ruta-N. The launch was facilitated by the Agency for Cooperation and Investment in Medellín (ACI) with the goal of fostering specialized skills in the local labor force, and is part of a larger plan to promote research, development, entrepreneurship, and innovation. This is good news, but I'm biased.
