We’re on the verge of the AI Gold Rush. And like the infamous historical gold rush, only a precious few with plans, and backup plans, will become the success stories that panned for gold and struck it rich. Real economic growth will be achieved by those companies which are selling the equivalent of picks, food, supplies, shovels, and jeans for Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning.
Artificial intelligence (AI), also known as machine intelligence, is the creation of machines that mimic human intelligence and perform tasks just as a human being would, or close to that. We all know Siri, the intelligent virtual assistant that comes with Apple products’ operating system, that would probably be the best example to paint a clear picture of what AI entails.
The use of facial recognition for surveillance, or algorithms that manipulate human behaviour, will be banned under proposed EU regulations on artificial intelligence.The wide-ranging proposals, which were leaked ahead of their official publication, also promised tough new rules for what they deem high-risk AI.
The OECD Principles on Artificial Intelligence promote artificial intelligence (AI) that is innovative and trustworthy and that respects human rights and democratic values. They were adopted in May 2019 by OECD member countries when they approved the OECD Council Recommendation on Artificial Intelligence.
Just last year, health secretary Matt Hancock warned that the NHS must adopt new healthcare technology – including IoT devices, robots and artificial intelligence (AI) – if it is to survive.Today, global events have forced the healthcare industry’s hand.
A global technology revolution is now underway. The world’s leading powers are racing to develop and deploy new technologies like artificial intelligence and quantum computing that could shape everything about our lives – from where we get energy, to how we do our jobs, to how wars are fought.
From healthcare, autonomous driving, to manufacturing and retail, almost every industry is touched and influenced by artificial intelligence. Consumers may think that enterprises mainly use AI for targeted marketing, or remote robots and unmanned driving, but in fact, this technology is deeply affecting many functions of the whole industry.
Stephen Hawking has said, “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.” Elon Musk claims that AI is humanity’s “biggest existential threat.”That might have people asking: Wait, what? But these grand worries are rooted in research.
Just the mention of AI and the brain invokes pictures of Terminator machines destroying the world. Thankfully, the present picture is significantly more positive. So, let’s explore how AI is helping our planet and at last benefiting humankind.
In previous American blockbusters, the plot of intelligent robots dominating all mankind often appeared. After the robot "Alpha dog" defeated the world champion of mankind in the go game, people finally wondered: does the value of artificial intelligence lie in replacing or even surpassing people? In my opinion, the value of artificial intelligence lies not in replacing or surpassing people, but in serving people.
The combination of artificial intelligence (AI) technology and medicine is the current trend. Ophthalmology has become a research hotspot because of its rich image data. At present, there are many researches on AI, including diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma, which have been gradually applied to clinical practice, but at the same time face many challenges.
For the past couple of years, renowned technologist and researcher Bruce Schneier has been researching how societal systems can be hacked, specifically the rules of financial markets, laws, and the tax code.
Conversational interfaces and chatbots are becoming more and more common. There are many universal chatbot solutions that can be used by companies from different niches, but companies like Kasisto are already developing industry-specific software intended for banks and other financial organizations.
