Federal governments require to accept AI for the good of individuals

AI has already taken the private sphere by storm, with massive corporations, dynamic startups, and even our own living rooms playing host to intelligent machine learning software. It’s no big surprise, then, that the world of government is starting to turn to AI to improve its effectiveness in serving populations large and small. The staid,…
Dubious AI develops pictures of scrumptious food that does not exist

Dubious AI develops pictures of scrumptious food that does not exist

A team of researchers from Tel-Aviv University developed a neural network capable of reading a recipe and generating an image of what the finished, cooked product would look like. As if DeepFakes weren’t bad enough, now we can’t be sure the delicious food we see online is real. The Tel-Aviv team, consisting of researchers Ori…

One could be forgiven for thinking that machines are creative. Numerous artificial intelligence projects appear to demonstrate that machines are capable of creating intricate works of art that rival those created by their inferior human creators. Just recently, IBM Watson created a movie trailer for the horror film Morgan (IBM). Google’s DeepDream AI fascinated the…

Throughout history, innovators have strived to create automata, or robots as we now know them, to augment labor intensive and dangerous human jobs. As far back as 322 BC, Aristotle predicted that fleets of mechanical automata could finally rid the world of the scourge of slavery by taking over backbreaking manual roles forced upon human…

You probably use computer vision every day and don’t even think about it. Enjoy checking out the latest Snapchat filters? That’s computer vision. Unlock your iPhone with your face? That’s computer vision, too. Use your phone to deposit your latest paycheck and get some cash in your bank account? Well, that’s also computer vision. Computer vision as we…

We must teach human rights law to software application engineers

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is finding its way into more and more aspects of our daily lives. It powers the smart assistants on our mobile phones and virtual “home assistants.” It’s in the algorithms designed to improve our health diagnostics. And it’s used in the predictive policing tools used by the police to fight crime. Each…
3 methods AI will enhance health care in 2019

3 methods AI will enhance health care in 2019

In a recent piece, I explained why AI’s complexity shouldn’t be a deterrent for its adoption. In fact, I went as far as stating that artificial intelligence will be just as disruptive as the internet was. This is a view I am doubling down on. As far as artificial intelligence is concerned, one industry most…

Scientist established an AI robotic that can help with giving birth

Instead of looking up at the sky to see whether you need an umbrella, people increasingly ask virtual assistants such as Alexa. And they may be wise to do so. AI methods are powerful – capable of anything from analyzing astrophysical data to detecting tumors or helping to manage diabetes. An algorithm that analyses shopping…

The leading 4 patterns identified in this years’ robotic scene

For robots, 2018 was a year of goodbyes, hellos, and intriguing pointers to future developments. Here are the four major trends that I spotted in the robot scene this year: General-purpose consumer robots aren’t a business… yet The year began with a large consumer robot contingent at CES, and a great deal of press for…

Amazon cozies approximately ICE as Congress weeps nasty

In a country where consumers (read: taxpayers) already have little-to-no privacy, it seems outrageous that billion-dollar technology companies can make closed-door deals with law enforcement agencies without US Congressional oversight. Yet here we are. Amazon has reportedly committed to providing ICE with “the best technology,” which sounds like it should be a good thing. ICE,…
