Predictions for AI and ML in 2020 - Information Age

#artificialintelligence

There have been concerns surrounding the prospective security of human jobs as AI and ML become more advanced, but do experts believe that this kind of tech will overhaul workplaces entirely, and what will the AI evolution in 2020 mean for other developing technologies, like 5G? For some, it's important not to get carried away by the idea that AI will take over all aspects of culture anytime soon, and we should instead prepare for more subtle but nevertheless practical uses of it within our immediate environment. Investment in sustainable technology is imperative if we are to halt and reverse some of the damage we have done to our planet. Data scientist at Hitachi Vantara, Dr Anya Rumyantseva, said: "Artificial intelligence isn't just something debated by techies or sci-fi writers anymore – it's increasingly creeping into our collective cultural consciousness, but there's a lot of emphasis on the negative. "While those big picture questions around ethics cannot and should not be ignored, in the near-term we won't be dealing with the super-AI you see in the movies.


Utilizing Generative Adversial Networks (GAN's) - Kwork Innovations

#artificialintelligence

If you want to create convincing output for some purpose, something that isn't real but seems to be, how do you do it? Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are an approach which holds a lot of promise. They provide a form of unsupervised learning, where a system can improve its performance over time without human feedback. Imagine that you're an artist hoping to get rich by creating fake "previously undiscovered" Rembrandts. Your works have to be good enough to fool the experts.


Machine Learning at the Edge: Using HLS to Optimize Power and Performance

#artificialintelligence

Moving machine learning to the edge has critical requirements on power and performance. Using off-the-shelf solutions is not practical. CPUs are too slow, GPUs/TPUs are expensive and consume too much power, and even generic machine learning accelerators can be overbuilt and are not optimal for power. In this paper, learn about creating new power/memory efficient hardware architectures to meet next-generation machine learning hardware demands at the edge.

Artificial Intelligence Is Superseding Well-Paying Wall Street Jobs

#artificialintelligence

The New York Stock Exchange floor is devoid of humans and runs primarily on technology conducting ... [ ] the electronic trading activities. We've been told that there is nothing to worry about artificial intelligence, robots and technology. New technologies will only replace mundane, repetitive jobs and free up workers to do more meaningful work, claims the media and top management consulting firms. Last week, the House Financial Services Committee's Task Force on Artificial Intelligence conducted a meeting with university academics and Wall Street financial services professionals to discuss the impact of AI on trading, robo-advisory, market surveillance and other activities within the financial services sector. To set the tone, the report by Wells Fargo predicting 200,000 banking jobs in the U.S. will be lost over the next decade--due to the introduction of new technologies--was cited by the chairman of the AI Task Force, Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill).

AI Compute Symposium Charts Path from Emerging to Pervasive AI

#artificialintelligence

Together with the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and Electron Device Society, IBM Research organized the 2nd AI Compute Symposium at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center THINKLab in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., on Oct 17. More than 200 distinguished academics, renowned thinkers, students, and innovators from across industry and academia assembled for the one-day symposium, which showcased leadership and advancement in research addressing AI compute from pervasive to general AI. The free event featured three keynotes, three invited talks, a student poster session, and a panel discussion. The keynoters were Dr. Luis Lastras, a researcher with IBM; Professor Wen-mei Hwu of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC); and Harvard University/Samsung Fellow Donhee Ham. Lastras provided an exciting overview of research projects from IBM related to natural language processing and its evolution.


Artificial Intelligence in 2020

#artificialintelligence

Where have we been, where are we now, and where are we headed? I've written this in first person format so the reader can see it through my eyes from the trenches, including observations, conclusions and questions. In looking back over time, it helps me to revisit milestone articles I've written and read. Although my first published paper on our AI R&D was in 2002, I'll start by looking back at a futuristic scenario on the American healthcare system published in 2010. A decade is a nice round number and was also the same year my old friend and former business partner Russell Borland passed away unexpectedly. Russell was a close friend from the early 1980s on. He was involved with our journey at KYield since inception in the mid 1990s, so losing him was a shock. I emailed the healthcare scenario to Vint Cerf who asked me if he could share it -- the paper was on the web so of course I said yes. The next thing I know enormous numbers of downloads were occurring (don't underestimate Vint's network, or Google's). We stopped counting at several million views from healthcare institutions all over the world, and that's just on our site (others have published the paper on the web without permission).


Peter Thiel to Silicon Valley: 'Unethical' not to help U.S. military compete with China

FOX News

Billionaire Silicon Valley investor and PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel called on American technology companies to step up innovation and resist pressures to reject military partnerships, arguing the U.S. is lagging behind China in the technology race. "The China dynamic has changed things tremendously in the last few years. China is going to force us to compete, to think much harder, [about] how we can deploy technologies much faster," Thiel said during a discussion at the Reagan National Defense Forum on Friday, which was livestreamed on Fox Nation. Thiel was commenting on a study by data and analytics company Govini, which showed that the U.S.'s share in global research and development spending declined from more than 60 percent in 1967, to less than 30 percent today. Meanwhile, China's share of the world R&D spending has increased significantly and today China has a larger share than the U.S. did at the height of the Cold War.


2020: A look back at the decade in tech from Alexa to Xbox

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

"Alexa" was just another female name. Uber hadn't taken anyone for a ride yet. And the buzz around Facebook had more to do with the fact that seemingly everyone you once knew was turning up on "The Social Network," and less about the numerous data and privacy scandals that would tarnish the company's reputation later on. The year was 2010, the dawn of a new decade. And while 10 years is a long time for most every industry, in consumer tech it might as well be a lifetime.
