The Detail: Artificial intelligence: Will the robots revolt?

#artificialintelligence

It sounds like the stuff of science fiction, but how worried should we be about artificial intelligence systems running rogue and potentially turning against us? All of these are at least 20 years old, with the latter being written approximately 3000 years ago, so if you've not caught up on them yet, you've only yourself to blame.) In the 1999 film The Matrix, which is set in the near future, the human race - worried by the increasing sentience and potential villainy of the artificial intelligence (AI) machines it's created - makes the decision to scorch the sky. They reason that without an energy source as abundant as the sun, the machines - which rely on solar power - will be crippled. "The human body generates more bioelectricity than a 120-volt battery, and over 25,000 BTUs of body heat," says one of the film's main characters, Lawrence Fishburne's Morpheus, in a voiceover.

The creation of artificial systems is an engineering business. As a natural intellectual system, humans have a set of features that are either impossible to implement with modern technology. On the other hand, technical systems must have capabilities that humans do not have to be helpful: creating an AI system aims to provide superiority in some aspects over human capabilities. Any AI-equipped system will obviously differ from a human in many ways and in each individual case differently depending on the purpose. The purpose of an AI-controlled system dictates a set of real or virtual sensors.


AI: enhancing the future of digital transformation

#artificialintelligence

Digital transformation is no longer an inward tactic used to reform an organisation's operations; it's now a necessary undertaking sought out by CIOs and IT leaders. Recent developments have pushed organisations to embrace digitisation, causing the fourth industrial revolution and technologies such as artificial intelligence to go mainstream. Even though, according to Gartner, only 53 per cent of AI projects make it from prototype into production, companies can't ignore the benefits of successful AI implementation. Enhanced AI solutions such as the artificial intelligence of things (AIoT), conversational AI and machine learning (ML) are improving the future of digital transformation and offer more innovative ways than ever before to address business challenges. Today's AI solutions can be customised to address a company's unique set of challenges.


Here's Why Businesses Are Having A Tumultuous Love-Hate Relationship With AI Ethics Boards

#artificialintelligence

AI Ethics Advisory Boards are essential but also require focus and attention, else they can fall ... [ ] apart and be untoward for all concerned. Should a business establish an AI Ethics advisory board? You might be surprised to know that this is not an easy yes-or-no answer. Before I get into the complexities underlying the pros and cons of putting in place an AI Ethics advisory board, let's make sure we are all on the same page as to what an AI Ethics advisory board consists of and why it has risen to headline-level prominence. As everyone knows, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the practical use of AI for business activities have gone through the roof as a must-have for modern-day companies. You would be hard-pressed to argue otherwise. To some degree, the infusion of AI has made products and services better, plus at times led to lower costs associated with providing said products and services. A nifty list of efficiencies and effectiveness boosts can be potentially attributed to the sensible and appropriate application of AI.


Meta Launches New Conversational AI Which Learns from Human Interactions, the Next Stage of Bot Development

#artificialintelligence

While the Messenger Bot revolution never took hold like Meta might have hoped, bots are still widely used, in a range of contexts, with many brands now implementing responder bots in messaging apps to streamline their customer connection process. And this could help further bot use. Today, Meta has released BlenderBot 3, an advanced bot responder dataset, which is able to engage with humans in a more natural way while also utilizing more prompts to guide users along a specific path of inquiry. "BlenderBot 3 is capable of searching the internet to chat about virtually any topic, and it's designed to learn how to improve its skills and safety through natural conversations and feedback from people "in the wild." Most previous publicly available datasets are typically collected through research studies with annotators that can't reflect the diversity of the real world."


Europe's Forthcoming AI Act Will Have a Wide Reach and Broad Implications - Fintech Schweiz Digital Finance News - FintechNewsCH

#artificialintelligence

Like the European Union (EU)'s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that entered into force in 2016, the upcoming Artificial Intelligence (AI) Act will have extraterritorial scope and global impact. Considering the AI Act's broad scope and the financial risks relating to non-compliance, businesses must prepare for these future regulatory changes now and proactively take the initiatives to comply with best practices early on, according to a new whitepaper by Swiss data services company Unit8. The paper, titled Upcoming AI Regulation: What to expect and how to prepare, delves into the EU's forthcoming AI Act, providing insights into the future development of AI regulation in Europe and the potential implications for organizations worldwide. The European Commission (EC) unveiled a proposal for a legal framework on AI in April 2021, seeking to address risks of specifically created by AI applications, proposing a list of high risk applications, setting clear requirements for AI systems for high risk applications and defining specific obligations for AI users and providers of high risk applications. The proposed rules also propose a conformity assessment method for AI systems, propose enforcement after an AI system is placed in the market, and propose a governance structure at European and national level.


AI Ethics Asks Whether It Makes Any Sense To Ask AI If AI Itself Is Sentient

#artificialintelligence

AI Ethics and the question of whether to ask AI if it is sentient. If I ask you whether you are sentient, you will undoubtedly assert that you are. Allow me to double-check that assumption. Perhaps the question itself seems a bit silly. The chances are that in our daily lives, we would certainly expect fellow human beings to acknowledge that they are sentient. This could be a humorous-inducing query that is supposed to imply that the other person is maybe not paying attention or has fallen off the sentience wagon and gone mentally out to lunch momentarily, as it were. Imagine that you walk up to a rock that is quietly and unobtrusively sitting on a pile of rocks and upon getting close enough to ask, you go ahead and inquire as to whether the rock is sentient. Assuming that the rock is merely a rock, we abundantly anticipate that the erstwhile but seemingly oddish question will be answered with rather stony silence (pun!).

India's National Tiger Conservation Authority (NCTA) has used over 26,000 cameras to capture over 24 million images of tigers around the country. Conservationists are using an AI system to identify tigers found in the images and quantify the total tiger population in the country. The NCTA plans to use an AI system to map patrol routes throughout sanctuaries to better monitor tigers next. Researchers at the University of New Orleans, Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, and Jefferson Parish Department of Environmental Affairs have used a supercomputer to simulate the diffusion and dispersion of chemical compounds that can deodorize a landfill.


4 Tactics For Picking The Right AI Solutions For Your Company

#artificialintelligence

AI is everywhere--at least from a high-level perspective. But does it belong in your business? There's little argument that AI offers companies plenty of capabilities and opportunities, and most executives know it. When polled by PwC, 86% of professionals said AI was a fairly established part of corporate life. Yet even if it's mainstream, AI shouldn't be treated as just another tool.


How Artificial Intelligence Learn Human Value?

#artificialintelligence

With the rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI), the question of how AI learns human values has become increasingly important. There are two main ways that AI can learn human values: through reinforcement learning and through imitation learning. Reinforcement learning is a type of learning that occurs when an AI system is rewarded for taking the desired action. For example, if an AI system is designed to play a game, it may be rewarded for winning the game. Over time, the AI system will learn to value actions that lead to the desired outcome.
