And implicit bias can show up in other forms of artificial intelligence software. A ProPublica investigation found that software by Northpoint, a consulting and research firm, used to predict the likelihood that criminal defendants would become repeat offenders overestimated risk for Black people and underestimated risk for white people. Black defendants were "77 percent more likely to be pegged as at higher risk of committing a future violent crime" than white defendants, according to the organization's research.


The 10 Best Gadgets of the 2010s

TIME - Tech

Making a list of the decade's most important and influential gadgets is, in a word, illuminating -- and that's before you factor in all the LEDs. Over the last 10 years, thousands of products have been released, and while some are definitely "cooler" than others, their impact on the past decade, and the decade to come, is by no means identical. Each gadget tells the story of a new way of thinking, a slow-moving paradigm shift set to change the way we approach the personal technology we interact with on a daily basis. Sure, you might not know what a Raspberry Pi is, but its impact on industries like robotics and home automation has been massive. But the elegantly executed idea has opened up a world of delight for gamers with disabilities.


A Sobering Message About the Future at AI's Biggest Party

#artificialintelligence

More than 13,000 artificial intelligence mavens flocked to Vancouver this week for the world's leading academic AI conference, NeurIPS. The venue included a maze of colorful corporate booths aiming to lure recruits for projects like software that plays doctor. Google handed out free luggage scales and socks depicting the colorful bikes employees ride on its campus, while IBM offered hats emblazoned with "I A ." Tuesday night, Google and Uber hosted well-lubricated, over-subscribed parties. At a bleary 8:30 the next morning, one of Google's top researchers gave a keynote with a sobering message about AI's future. Blaise Aguera y Arcas praised the revolutionary technique known as deep learning that has seen teams like his get phones to recognize faces and voices.


Apple acquires AI startup that uses machine learning to make pictures crisper

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Apple is working on technology for the perfect selfie. The tech giant acquired Spectral Edge, a UK-based AI startup that uses machine learning to make smartphone pictures crisper, with more accurate colors. The system captures and blends an infrared shot with a standard shot to enhance a photograph's overall depth, detail and color. The startup uses a process that completely relies on machine learning that can be combined with both hardware and software to improve pictures. The news was first revealed by Bloomberg, which obtained secret documents'that Apple now controls Spectral.'


Software Ate The World, Now AI Is Eating Software

#artificialintelligence

Marc Andreessen famously said that "Software is eating the world" and everyone gushed into the room. This was as much a writing on the wall for many traditional enterprises as it was wonderful news for the software industry. Still no one actually understood what he meant. "Today, the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, is a software company -- its core capability is its amazing software engine for selling virtually everything online, no retail stores necessary. On top of that, while Borders was thrashing in the throes of impending bankruptcy, Amazon rearranged its web site to promote its Kindle digital books over physical books for the first time. Now even the books themselves are software."

The online-platform Gruenderszene reports that Munich startup E-bot7 has raised a cool 5.5 million euros in fresh capital to advance and develop its smart customer-service software. The basic idea is to integrate artificial intelligence into companies' existing customer support service, for instance, by suggesting answers to client questions. Founded in 2016, the company presently has 36 employees but plans for expansion are underway. E-bot7 is set to open offices in Paris and London and has its sights set even further from home. "For example, we want our software to be able to understand Asian languages quite soon," says E-bot7 co-founder Fabian Berlinger.


How Algorithms Are Taking Over Big Oil

#artificialintelligence

With the help of artificial intelligence, BP says it needs 40% fewer workers to keep its natural gas ... [ ] flowing in Wyoming. A visitor to one of BP's natural gas fields in Wyoming a few years ago might have noticed an odd sight: smartphones in plastic bags tied to pumps with zip ties. This was an early test of a multistate initiative by the oil giant to link a network of Wi-Fi sensors to an artificial intelligence system--one that now operates the Wamsutter field in Wyoming with far less human oversight than before. Artificial intelligence has come to the oil patch, accelerating a technical change that is transforming the conditions for the oil and gas industry's 150,000 U.S. workers. Giant energy companies like Shell and BP are investing billions to bring artificial intelligence to new refineries, oilfields and deepwater drilling platforms.

Scientists Slam AI Software That Predicts Emotions

#artificialintelligence

A conspicuous gathering of specialists frightened by the unsafe social impacts of artificial intelligence called Thursday for a prohibition on mechanized investigation of outward appearances in procuring and other significant choices. The AI Now Institute at New York University said activity against such programming driven "influence acknowledgment" was its top need since science doesn't legitimize the innovation's utilization and there is still time to stop across the board appropriation. The gathering of educators and different scientists refered to as a risky model the organization HireVue, which sells frameworks for remote video interviews for bosses, for example, Hilton and Unilever. It offers Engineer AI to investigate facial developments, manner of speaking and discourse designs, and doesn't reveal scores to the activity applicants. The charitable Electronic Privacy Information Center has recorded a grievance about HireVue to the US Federal Trade Commission, and AI Now has condemned the organization previously.
