How Would-Be Category Kings Become Commoners

#artificialintelligence

Author Rory McDonald spent several years studying companies pioneering new categories in several fields, most notably software and fintech. He interviewed hundreds of entrepreneurs, corporate innovation chiefs, market analysts, and journalists. Author Keith Krach built and led four category-creating enterprises in industrial robotics, mechanical design automation, B2B ecommerce, and digital signature. Using multiple-case methods, and melding their analysis with personal experience, the authors compared the emerging insights to develop a theory of the category creation process. They also reviewed prior research on category creation and market formation in organization theory and strategy.


SK Telecom offers AI voice analysis for dementia diagnosis

ZDNet

SK Telecom and Seoul National University College of Medicine have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) tool to help identify dementia earlier. The AI tool analyses the voices of patients by having a 10-minute conversation with them to determine if they may have dementia, the two organisations said on Monday. They said the AI is able to do this as voice emitted from the vocal cord changes as it passes through the vocal tract and the way this happens is different for healthy individuals and dementia patients. The AI looks for this difference when making its diagnosis. This accessibility will assist in early diagnosis, SK Telecom said, which it explained is crucial for slowing down the progression of dementia.


Tesla's 'Full Self-Driving' Is 99.9% There, Just 1,000 Times Further To Go

#artificialintelligence

This week, Tesla TSLA released a very limited beta of what Elon Musk has referred to as "feature complete full self-driving" to a chosen subset of their early access customers. It also announced a $2,000 increase in the price of the "FSD in the future" package it sells today to car owners, giving them access to this software when it's ready. The package is impressing many of these owners. A few have posted videos to Youtube showing the system in operation on city streets. In spite of the name, "full" self driving is neither self-driving nor full as most people in the industry would refer to it.


Go Beyond Artificial Intelligence: Why Your Business Needs Augmented Intelligence

The nasal test for Covid-19 requires a nurse to insert a 6-inch long swab deep into your nasal passages. Now, imagine that your nurse is a robot. A few months ago, a nasal swab robot was developed by Brain Navi, a Taiwanese startup. The company's intent was to minimize the spread of infection by reducing staff-patient contact. So, here we have a robot autonomously navigating the probe down into your throat, and carefully avoiding channels that lead up to the eyes.


5 Ways Machine Learning Helps us in our Everyday Lives

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning and artificial intelligence are often used interchangeably since the former is a subset of the latter. Along with professional and industrial usage of machine learning, now a layman is getting used to the perks of machine learning in routine tasks. With the arrival of machine learning manual labor has become obsolete and now due to the superintelligence of those very machines, mental labor and capabilities would also be performed through machine learning. Machine learning is a popular application of artificial intelligence where the devices possess cognitive abilities similar to those of humans. The machines learn based on data and input provided to them daily.


Uber's Self-Driving Car Killed Someone. Why Isn't Uber Being Charged?

Slate

Autonomous vehicle design involves an almost incomprehensible combination of engineering tasks including sensor fusion, path planning, and predictive modeling of human behavior. But despite the best efforts to consider all possible real world outcomes, things can go awry. More than two and a half years ago, in Tempe, Arizona, an Uber "self-driving" car crashed into pedestrian Elaine Herzberg, killing her. In mid-September, the safety driver behind the wheel of that car, Rafaela Vasquez, was charged with negligent homicide. Uber's test vehicle was driving 39 mph when it struck Herzberg. Uber's sensors detected her six seconds before impact but determined that the object sensed was a false positive.

Algorithms of Social Manipulation - KDnuggets

Do you know how your apps work? Are you aware of what tech companies are doing in the back with your data? And what's more revealing: do you know which of your action are actually influenced by those apps? When you take a trip with Uber, buy stuff on Amazon, or watch a movie on Netflix: when are you consciously deciding and when are you being heavily influenced? Tech companies are not passively observing your behavior and acting as a consequence: they are influencing your behavior, so you become more predictable.


5 Lessons Uber Learned From Running Machine Learning at Scale

Infer Genetic Disease From Your Face - DeepGestalt can accurately identify some rare genetic disorders using a photograph of a patient's face. This could lead to payers and employers potentially analyzing facial images and discriminating against individuals who have pre-existing conditions or developing medical complications.
