Autonomous Vehicles Will Choose Who Lives and Dies -- What Are We Going To Do About It?

#artificialintelligence

It's true a significant amount of labor will be displaced, but second order effects will create a net increase in new jobs. It's true that the auto did displace pre-auto transportation jobs, but it also paved the way for entirely new industries -- three big beneficiaries come to mind. Second, consumer industries; the actual businesses that lived in these newly constructed complexes needed labor after all. It's the precise reason why every tech company and auto company is strategizing on how they will navigate the space.

How can we anticipate and manage trends in AI, and will creative and analytical skills really be the key to job success in an AI world? The progression and extensive testing of these vehicles presents a problem that cannot be easily fixed, meaning there'll be a gap between the smart cruise control phase and the introduction of a truly autonomous vehicle. That's not to say that autonomous vehicles won't be amazing. This next generation will become amazing at controlling and training the bots that manage their life.

Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own. The author is a Forbes contributor. The truth is that it's impossible for traditional marketing technologies, processes, and organizations to keep pace with the volume, velocity, and complexity of cross channel, personalized customer engagement in 2017. We're in the very early stages of transforming marketing with AI.

What is Narrow, General and Super Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

You might have also heard about narrow, general and super artificial intelligence, or about machine learning, deep learning, reinforced learning, supervised and unsupervised learning, neural networks, Bayesian networks and a whole lot of other confusing terms. But then it gives a more understandable definition of machines that mimics cognitive functions such as problem solving and learning. General AI, also known as human-level AI or strong AI, is the type of Artificial Intelligence that can understand and reason its environment as a human would. According to University of Oxford scholar and AI expert Nick Bostrom, when AI becomes much smarter than the best human brains in practically every field, including scientific creativity, general wisdom and social skills, we've achieved Artificial Super Intelligence.


How to make Artificial Intelligence work for your business - Tele-Talk by Roni Dvir ET Telecom

#artificialintelligence

According to Gartner's IT Glossary, AI is technology that appears to emulate human performance – typically by learning, coming to its own conclusions, appearing to understand complex content, engaging in natural dialog with people, and enhancing human cognitive performance. Indeed, AI represents a force of differentiation that will enable service providers to more effectively drive value across the business – from network optimization and data analytics through to customer care and marketing engagement. AI can keep pace with these demands with solutions (both machine learning and deep learning) that include analytics tools and automation that can systematically respond, operate and improve operational and business support systems. It can take network optimization to new levels, bringing advanced intelligence to data analytics, while making customer-facing operations and services more effective than ever before.

As noted in Forrester's 2016 Internet of Things Heat Map, "Because of the enormous range of sensors, customer scenarios, and business cases, the technologies for IoT sensor devices, radios, network protocols, software protocols, and data formats are very diverse. The cloud's role then becomes synergistic as opposed to directive: Its economy of scale can be directed to build and refine machine learning models on massive data sets, thereby further augmenting intelligence, which can further be acted on at the edge.

Job Losses Hurt How A Community's Children Perform In School, Study Says

International Business Times

Plenty of research has documented the adverse impact of a parent's sudden job loss on the average child, in terms of mental health and economic prospects. A 1 percent sudden statewide loss in jobs affects 1.5 percent of students directly -- and indirectly led the remaining 98.5 percent of students to experience "learning losses ... that are about one-third the size of those experienced by children whose parents lose jobs." More specifically, that 1 percent job loss lowered the state's eighth-grade math test scores by 0.057 standard deviations, an amount roughly the same size as the increase that results from intervention efforts intended to boost test scores. "What I see as one of the main points in our study is that the effects on people who lost their job or the children of people who lost their jobs -- there are spillover effects," said Dania Francis, one of the study's authors and an assistant professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.


Machine learning in cybersecurity is coming to IAM systems

#artificialintelligence

Several experts at the 2017 Cloud Identity Summit this week discussed machine learning in cybersecurity applications for identity management systems, as well the risks and rewards of such applications. And to give an idea of the volume of activity that identity management systems are dealing with today, Simons said his company sees 115.5 million blocked log in attempts and 15.8 million takeover attempts for Microsoft accounts each day. Maass said if the baseline for good behavior is set incorrectly, then the identity management systems will learn incorrectly and make mistakes. Dholakia cited another potential problem for machine learning-powered IAM: Continuous and possibly endless accumulation of data for identity management systems will make machine learning in cybersecurity applications increasingly complex and harder for actual human identity professionals to manage.
