The Future of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

"In general it is very difficult to build AI that works well for the kinds or kind groups we want it," Ries says in an interview with Fast Company. "There are many cases where you need really specific decisions made about how machine learning should operate." This might be true if there's just one particular group getting trained; but given enough time period machines can figure out what sort people like more, humans will eventually adapt better than any social agents could ever create (not to mention predict when they'll find something useful). Artificial intelligence (AI) is defined as machine learning. Machine Learning is a field in artificial intelligence that involves using computer programs to teach computers how to learn without being explicitly programmed.


What is Artificial Intelligence? Guide to AI

#artificialintelligence

By any measure, artificial intelligence (AI) has become big business. According to Gartner, customers worldwide will spend $62.5 billion on AI software in 2022. And it notes that 48 percent of CIOs have either already deployed some sort of AI software or plan to do so within the next twelve months. All that spending has attracted a huge crop of startups focused on AI-based products. CB Insights reported that AI funding hit $15.1 billion in the first quarter of 2022 alone.


What is Artificial Intelligence & How Does It Work?

#artificialintelligence

The term artificial intelligence (AI) refers to computing systems that perform tasks normally considered within the realm of human decision making. These software-driven systems and intelligent agents incorporate advanced data analytics and Big Data applications. AI systems leverage this knowledge repository to make decisions and take actions that approximate cognitive functions, including learning and problem solving. AI, which was introduced as an area of science in the mid 1950s, has evolved rapidly in recent years. It has become a valuable and essential tool for orchestrating digital technologies and managing business operations.

Future of UK Defence Artificial Intelligence Launched

#artificialintelligence

Plans for the future of cutting-edge UK Artificial Intelligence (AI) defence technology have been unveiled in a new strategy published today at London Tech Week AI Summit. The strategy and accompanying policy on the'Ambitious, Safe and Responsible' use of AI underpin a new Defence AI Centre (DAIC), which will offer a visionary hub to champion, enable and innovate these technologies across the UK Armed Forces with pace and ambition. In the face of ever-evolving threats to global security, the Defence AI Strategy outlines how the UK will prioritise research, development, and experimentation to revolutionise our Armed Forces capabilities through new concepts and cutting-edge technology to deliver the latest equipment to the battlefield through effective, efficient, trusted pathways. Concepts include AI-enabled autonomous combat vehicles and resupply systems to deliver supplies without putting people in danger, or soldiers on the front-line guided by smart systems drawing on hours of detailed footage captured by a series of small drones. We also publish today our policy on the'Ambitious, Safe and Responsible' use of AI, developed through partnership with the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation (CDEI), including new ethical principles for the use of AI in Defence.


AI ethics responsibility shifts from tech silos to broader executive champions in the C-suite

#artificialintelligence

When asked which function is primarily accountable for AI ethics in a new survey from IBM's Institute for Business Value (IBV), 80 percent of respondents pointed to a non-technical executive, such as a CEO, as the primary "champion" for AI ethics, a sharp uptick from 15 percent in 2018--revealing a radical shift in the roles responsible for leading and upholding AI ethics at an organization. The firm's global study also indicates that despite a strong imperative for advancing trustworthy AI, including better performance compared to peers in sustainability, social responsibility, and diversity and inclusion, there remains a gap between leaders' intention and meaningful actions. "As many companies today use AI algorithms across their business, they potentially face increasing internal and external demands to design these algorithms to be fair, secured and trustworthy; yet, there has been little progress across the industry in embedding AI ethics into their practices," said Jesus Mantas, global managing partner at IBM Consulting, in a news release. "Our IBV study findings demonstrate that building trustworthy AI is a business imperative and a societal expectation, not just a compliance issue. As such, companies can implement a governance model and embed ethical principles across the full AI life cycle."


Patient Advocacy Groups (PAGs) are forging a more equitable future for public health

Mashable

You don't need us to tell you that the past few years were a challenging time for the global healthcare system. You likely gleaned it from the headlines with every refresh -- the shortage of hospital beds, a deluge of news and complicated medical information, and patients being turned away for annual wellness exams, mental health visits, and even chemotherapy treatments. This is where patient advocacy groups, or PAGs, have stepped up to meet the evolving needs of patients. Patient advocacy groups are organizations that provide education, resources, support services and more to patients and their caregivers. Basically, PAGs play the all-too-important role of bridging the gap between patients and the medical system.


AI For Women In Law: Answering The Call For AI-Savvy Legal Leaders. - Conventus Law

#artificialintelligence

Unstructured data like emails, instant messages, and image files now make up 80 to 90 percent of corporate data – and it's growing three times faster than structured data, according to Gartner. To keep up with this onslaught of hard-to-manage data, companies are expected to invest $190 billion in AI by 2025. To help our community keep pace with advances in AI, Relativity hosted our first AI Bootcamp for Women in Law last week in Washington, DC. This invite-only event combined AI-focused sessions with networking events to provide the essential AI knowledge needed to be a legal innovation leader. Attendees received a working knowledge of AI, an AI Bootcamp certificate of completion, CLE credit, and RCE credits, and the 30 women in attendance left feeling empowered and inspired.

From R&D to ROI: Five Reasons ML Doesn't Go Into Production – and How to Solve Them

#artificialintelligence

I've worked in the data analytics space my entire career; making tools and making sense of data is my passion. The journey has been interesting – and never more so than today, as we live through this new chapter in data analytics and machine learning. The potential is huge – we are likely witnessing the most revolutionary technology shift we'll see in our lifetimes. Which begs the question: why are we not seeing it in production? Why do so many machine learning (ML) projects fail?
