Could Artificial Intelligence Replace Therapists?

#artificialintelligence

Recently, a Google engineer, Blake Lemoine, who worked with Google's LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications), an artificially intelligent chatbot generator, revealed that he thought LaMDA is sentient. Lemoine based his assertion on interactions he had conducted with LaMDA over half a year. In response, Google placed the engineer on administrative leave for disclosing confidential information. They stated that their ethicists and technologists had reviewed Lemoine's concerns and "informed him that the evidence does not support his claims." Having been trained to access numerous datasets to find patterns in sentences, create correlations between words, and predict what word will come next, LaMDA is able to conduct open-ended conversations.


How AI is going to affect the legal industry?

#artificialintelligence

Yes, it's not technology because, At its core, AI is the Ideology of teaching computers how to "learn, reason, perceive, infer, communicate, and make decisions like humans do." The initial goal is called machine learning, where the machine (a computer) begins to make decisions with minimal programming. Instead of manually writing rules for how the computer should interpret a set of data, machine learning algorithms (i.e., sets of instructions for solving particular problems) allow the computer to determine the rules itself. Beyond machine learning lies an even bigger goal, deep learning. Deep learning uses more advanced algorithms to perform more abstract tasks such as recognizing images and detecting the early stage of the disease and saving millions of lives.


AI and Autonomous Driving

#artificialintelligence

We can only begin to imagine the possibilities Artificial Intelligence holds, but one of the most well-known topics related to AI potential is that of autonomous driving. The concept of machines that mimic human cognition – Artificial Intelligence, or AI for short – dates back as early as ancient Greece, though the term wasn't coined and developed into a field until 1956. In recent years the technology has rapidly progressed and its uses have broadened significantly to include areas like agriculture, medicine, voice assistance, and even autonomous driving.

Advancements in AI That Will Soon Change Your Life

#artificialintelligence

The advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) is gradually blurring the lines between the physical and digital worlds. For many industries, AI is no longer just a conceptual idea for the future, but a very real technology with innovative applications. Even so, society is only beginning to feel the impact of AI as experts strive to understand all the possibilities. It is clear that the true potential of AI has yet to be discovered, but the current advancements in AI do give us a decent idea of what it may look like. Here are some of the advancements in AI that you may soon see in your daily life.


Chinese researchers claim they have AI capable of reading minds

#artificialintelligence

A new report has claimed the Chinese government is now implementing cutting edge artificial intelligence to monitor the minds of dozens of Communist party officials. Researchers in China claimed to have developed software that can acutely analyze facial expressions and brain waves to monitor if subjects were attentive to "thought and political education." China's stringent police state has been radically upscaled over the past decade, using big data, machine learning, face recognition technology and artificial intelligence to build what many have labelled the world's most complex digital dictatorship. According to the Hefei Comprehensive National Science Centre, the high-tech development would be used to "further solidify their confidence and determination to be grateful to the party, listen to the party and follow the party." In a short clip, a subject was seen looking at screen at a kiosk, scrolling through exercises promoting party policy.


What Is It About the Human Brain That Makes Us Smarter Than Other Animals? New Research

#artificialintelligence

Humans are unrivaled in the area of cognition. After all, no other species has sent probes to other planets, produced lifesaving vaccines, or created poetry. How information is processed in the human brain to make this possible is a question that has drawn endless fascination, yet no definitive answers. Our understanding of brain function has changed over the years. But current theoretical models describe the brain as a "distributed information-processing system."


Introducing a Revolutionary Device to Save Civilization from Lies

#artificialintelligence

Lies are as old as language. We once thought the internet would make us smarter, by providing access to a world of information. But it has weaponized disinformation. We're having an epistemology crisis, many people falling into quicksands of falsehoods, or not knowing what to believe. But imagine having a device you can rely on to sort truth from lies.


Using AI to save the lives of mothers and babies

#artificialintelligence

As part of our SLAS Europe 2022 coverage, we speak to Professor Patricia Maguire from the University College Dublin about their AI_PREMie technology and how it can help to save mothers and babies lives. My name is Patricia Maguire, and I am a professor of biochemistry at University College, Dublin (UCD). Four years ago, I was appointed director of the UCD Institute for Discovery, a major university research institute in UCD, and our focus is cultivating interdisciplinary research. In that role, I first became excited by the possibilities of integrating AI into my research. I think there are two major obstacles to adopting AI in healthcare.


An Introduction to Semantics and Semantic Technology

#artificialintelligence

Inside the enterprise, missing or ineffectively managed information can be extremely costly. Not only can it lead to business inefficiencies, but it can even result in lost business opportunities. Semantics can play a key role in making sure that all enterprise information is readily available, especially the unstructured data. Semantics is the study of the meaning of words and sentences. It uses the relations of linguistic forms to non-linguistic concepts and mental representations to explain how sentences are understood by native speakers.


Artificial Intelligence Detects New Family of Genes in Gut Bacteria

#artificialintelligence

Using artificial intelligence, UT Southwestern researchers have discovered a new family of sensing genes in enteric bacteria that are linked by structure and probably function, but not genetic sequence. The findings, published in PNAS, offer a new way of identifying the role of genes in unrelated species and could lead to new ways to fight intestinal bacterial infections. "We identified similarities in these proteins in reverse of how it's usually done. Instead of using sequence, Lisa looked for matches in their structure," said Kim Orth, Ph.D., Professor of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, who co-led the study with Lisa Kinch, Ph.D., a bioinformatics specialist in the Department of Molecular Biology. Dr. Orth's lab has long focused on studying how marine and estuary bacteria cause infections.
