The Impact of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare - OpenMind

#artificialintelligence

There are many significant indicators of the rapidly increasing growth of AI applications. First, the number of start ups providing AI support to healthcare providers has escalated [1]. There have been over 100 healthcare start-ups using machine learning and AI over the past 3 years, offering support in everything from remote patient monitoring, drug discovery, image diagnostics, and much more. According to a 2016 report from CB Insights [1], about 86% of healthcare provider organizations are currently using AI in some way. Furthermore, this is likely to rise substantially during the next decade.


Facebook Admits Sharing Users' Data With 61 Tech Companies

#artificialintelligence

Facebook has admitted that the company gave dozens of tech companies and app developers special access to its users' data after publicly saying it had restricted outside companies to access such data back in 2015. It's an unusual clear view of how the largest social networking site manages your personal information. During the Cambridge Analytica scandal revealed March this year, Facebook stated that it already cut off third-party access to its users' data and their friends in May 2015 only. However, in a 747-page long document [PDF] delivered to Congress late Friday, the social networking giant admitted that it continued sharing data with 61 hardware and software makers, as well as app developers after 2015 as well. The disclosure comes in response to hundreds of questions posed to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg by members of Congress in April about its company's practices with data of its billions of users.

Why the Future of Social Media Will Depend on Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

With an estimated 2.77 billion social network users around the globe, social networking platforms possess an unimaginable amount of data. The reach of social networks is expanding at an alarming rate around the globe in 2019. These figures will continue to grow. Social media provides a phenomenal amount of user-generated data. Due to the nature of data which is mainly unstructured, it is a herculean task to gauge actionable insights from this sea of information.


Social Networking Without The Awkward History

Founded by Kent born businessman and entrepreneur William JD West; Invacio has spent the last 5 years in self imposed stealth mode. Undertaking a mammoth task, that of creating a humongous data devouring artificial intelligence system capable of virtually any type of data analysis that could be required by governments, commercial organisations or even the average man on the street. During the presentation they discussed AI driven wealth generation and crisis management. Drawing upon both historical data stores, and real time live feeds, Invacio's systems are capable of deciding how to organise the relief operations around a natural disaster, picking the best performing share or forex currency to buy on any given day or even helping someone to plan their itinerary for a trip to a new country: flights, hotels and even activities. It is the mixture of data streams and complexity of the analysis and decision making processes that makes their system so different and flexible.


The politics of AI

#artificialintelligence

Iconic AI from pop culture such as HAL 9000 and Agent Smith epitomise a Manichaean obsession with the idea of'superintelligence' ('the Singularity') that could prove to be good or evil, vested as it is with the power to turn humans into either immortals or slaves oppressed by parasitic machines. But the Singularity is not what humanity needs to worry about right now. Machine learning (a more precise term for AI) will certainly continue to surpass human capabilities in specific domains such as medical diagnosis and facial recognition. But an AI that can match human intelligence in all respects is unlikely because it is impossible for AI technology to replicate that which makes human intelligence what it is -- its embodiment in a biological substrate refined by millions of years of evolutionary feedback loops. This doesn't mean the advent of AI is no cause for concern.


Amazon has developed an AI fashion designer

#artificialintelligence

The effort points to ways in which Amazon and other companies could try to improve the tracking of trends in other areas of retail--making recommendations based on products popping up in social-media posts, for instance. For instance, one group of Amazon researchers based in Israel developed machine learning that, by analyzing just a few labels attached to images, can deduce whether a particular look can be considered stylish. An Amazon team at Lab126, a research center based in San Francisco, has developed an algorithm that learns about a particular style of fashion from images, and can then generate new items in similar styles from scratch--essentially, a simple AI fashion designer. The event included mostly academic researchers who are exploring ways for machines to understand fashion trends.
