The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Human Rights

#artificialintelligence

Adopting AI can affect not just your workers but how you deal with privacy and discrimination issues. As humans become more reliant on machines to make processes more efficient and inform their decisions, the potential for a conflict between artificial intelligence and human rights has emerged. If left unchecked, artificial intelligence can create inequality and can even be used to actively deny human rights across the globe. However, if used optimally, AI can enhance human rights, increase shared prosperity, and create a better future for us all. It is ultimately up to businesses to carefully consider the opportunities new technologies provide and how they can best leverage these opportunities while being conscious of the impact on human rights.


Council Post: AI Is Amazing But Complicated, And We Don't Necessarily Need To Plunge In Headfirst

#artificialintelligence

Eric Hutto is President and Chief Operating Officer at Unisys Corporation. Artificial intelligence (AI) can help humans address many challenges, but it also creates challenges. We know AI has biases. We understand that AI may or may not draw fair and ethical conclusions all the time. Yet it's clear that AI is going to happen anyway.


Council Post: Where Insights Meet Privacy: Privacy-Preserving Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have the power to deliver business value and impact across a wide range of use cases, which has led to their rapidly increasing deployment across verticals. For example, the financial services industry is investing significantly in leveraging machine learning to monetize data assets, improve customer experience and enhance operational efficiencies. According to the World Economic Forum's 2020 "Global AI in Financial Services Survey," AI and ML are expected to "reach ubiquitous importance within two years." However, as the rise and adoption of AI/ML parallels that of global privacy demand and regulation, businesses must be mindful of the security and privacy considerations associated with leveraging machine learning. The implications of these regulations affect the collaborative use of AI/ML not only between entities but also internally, as they limit an organization's ability to use and share data between business segments and jurisdictions.


Research reflects how AI sees through the looking glass

#artificialintelligence

Right hands become left hands. Intrigued by how reflection changes images in subtle and not-so-subtle ways, a team of Cornell University researchers used artificial intelligence to investigate what sets originals apart from their reflections. Their algorithms learned to pick up on unexpected clues such as hair parts, gaze direction and, surprisingly, beards -- findings with implications for training machine learning models and detecting faked images. "The universe is not symmetrical. If you flip an image, there are differences," said Noah Snavely, associate professor of computer science at Cornell Tech and senior author of the study, "Visual Chirality," presented at the 2020 Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, held virtually June 14-19.


Use Cases of Artificial Intelligence in Finance Industry

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence in today's digital world is playing the role of a real game-changer. This technology is changing the working of each and every industry at a great pace. Recently Artificial Intelligence has shaken its hand with the finance industry. The AI systems can examine and trace millions of data points. They also find the trending patterns which people are missing. Better conversational tress is created with a combination of AI and Natural Language Processing.


Tools to Spot Deepfakes and AI-Generated Text - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

With the emergence of incredibly powerful machine learning technologies, such as Deepfakes and Generative Neural Networks, it is all the easier now to spread false information. In this article, we will briefly introduce deepfakes and generative neural networks, as well as a few ways to spot AI-generated content and protect yourself against misinformation. I have many elderly relatives and some middle-aged relatives that just aren't well-versed with technology. Some of these people believe nearly anything they read, or at least believe it enough to share it on social media. While that doesn't sound so bad, it depends on what you are sharing.


COVID-KG uses AI to scan thousands of studies to answer doctors' coronavirus questions

#artificialintelligence

The number of studies about COVID-19 has risen exponentially from the start of the pandemic, from around 20,000 in early March to over 30,000 as of late June. In an effort to help clinicians digest the vast amount of biomedical knowledge in the literature, researchers affiliated with Columbia, Brandeis, Darpa, UCLA, and UIUC developed a framework -- COVID-KG -- that draws on papers to answer natural language questions about drug purposing and more. The sheer volume of COVID-19 research makes it difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff. Some false information has been promoted on social media and in publication venues like journals. And many results about the virus from different labs and sources are redundant, complementary, or would appear to conflict.


Deep learning-based attack detection AI engine

#artificialintelligence

TOKYO, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- About Cyneural While cyber-attack defenses generally respond by detecting specific patterns of "signatures" that indicate malicious access, complex or unknown attacks that utilize AI or BOTs can be difficult to detect or can result in false positives. This is why cyber-attack defenses also need to take advantage of technology with flexibility such as AI. Against this backdrop, Cyber Security Cloud developed its own attack detection AI engine, Cyneural, in August 2019. "Cyneural" uses a feature extraction engine that utilizes the knowledge cultivated through CSC's research on web access and various attack methods. It builds multiple types of training models to help detect not only common attacks but also unknown cyber-attacks and false positives at a higher speed. About Cyneural being used in Shadankun and WafCharm Since the development of Cyneural, CSC has been operating it by utilizing the large amount of data that they have.


How Intelligent Is Your AI? – MIT Sloan Management Review

#artificialintelligence

Ask these four questions to tell if your AI solution is really AI. In a world where buzzwords come and go, artificial intelligence has been remarkably durable. Since it first emerged as a concept in the 1950s, there has been a relatively constant flow of technologies, products, services, and companies that purport to be AI. It is quite likely that a solution you are investing in today is being referred to as AI-enabled or machine-learning-driven. The reality today for most organizations is that AI and machine learning form a rather small piece of the overall analytics pie.


Startup Promises Immortality Through AI, Nanotechnology, and Cloning

#artificialintelligence

One of the things humans have plotted for centuries is escaping death, with little to show for it, until now. One startup called Humai has a plan to make immortality a reality. The CEO, Josh Bocanegra says when the time comes and all the necessary advancements are in place, we'll be able to freeze your brain, create a new, artificial body, repair any damage to your brain, and transfer it into your new body. This process could then be repeated in perpetuity. HUMAI stands for: Human Resurrection through Artificial Intelligence.
