AI Still Needs Training To Understand Us

While artificial intelligence (AI) continues making headlines and breaking barriers that were thought to be impossible a decade ago, humans are now looking at it with both awe and fear. This is understandable because no one can allow their work to be taken away or to be replaced in places where they have for years looked for their daily bread. When people hear that companies are building AI-powered assistants to help in different tasks, they get afraid that AI is close to becoming independent of humans. The questions that they often ask are; Is AI close to matching human intelligence? Are we close to the fictional Skynet predicted in the Terminator? Is AI smart in its own and will it take positions long occupied by humans?


Science is Benefiting from AI Too

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data are revolutionizing manufacturing, marketing and supply chain. The same is happening to scientific research where AI is proving to be a critical technology in scientific discovery. For instance, it is proving indispensable in predicting the outcomes of experiments, an example being quantum systems. Fully incorporated with fundamental laws of physics, AI can easily predict scientific simulations. Materials science, just like other experimental science branches such as drug discovery, leverage AI to model sophisticated experiments from data that is collected.


Can man and machine collaborate?

Despite the many exciting advancements in tech over the last half decade, a concerning narrative is emerging: that machines, rather than being our tools and friend, may come back to bite us. One need only watch an episode of ‘Black Mirror’ to see this moral panic — there is widespread, and not illegitimate, worry that progress will eventually lead to catastrophe.


AI May Make Better Decisions About Your Money than You Can

Would you allow a robot to manage your money? Well, while it may appear as fictional futuristic movie stuff, financial services providers are already doing it. Robots and artificially intelligent computers and systems are now helping in the management of your money and other financial services. According to Accenture, this trend will allow banks to boost their revenues and employment in the next five years. Similarly, AI apps that help people in their Personal Finance Management (PFM) are now available to help individuals in the management of their finances.


Competing with AI for jobs now?

I am not going to go into the long term future of AI because that would be highly speculative. I would rather focus on the short term future of AI, much of which is already taking place. For the purpose of this article I want to focus on AI-powered hyper-contextualization and how that impacts our realities. AI means that we can crunch insane amounts of data points together in order to map out and ultimately predict behavior. When it comes to content, this hyper-contextualization allows content to be curated according to personal taste. We already see this in social media for instance with curated feeds according to personal. political and religious preferences.


Use of AI in the Music Business

Music has and will always be an important part of society as long as human beings exist. However, as society changes in many aspects, music also evolves to meet its new needs and demands. For quite a while now, AI has been a buzzword in the technology space. It is increasingly becoming a talk of almost every industry primarily due to its ability to offer automation services, ease responsibilities and offer innovative workflows. The entry of this new technology into the music industry is important due for a few reasons. Although to some it may sound like cheap science fiction, it is true that we can have robots capable of creating songs, playing music and AI-enhanced robots writing song lyrics. Such practices are not new in the music industry.


Machine Learning and 70% Productivity Increase: The Alibaba Experiment

Machine Learning has been developed under the umbrella term of ‘Artificial Intelligence’. Essentially, it’s set to change the way businesses operate as know it. It’s already been adopted across many industries including healthcare, law, education and retail.


The Use of Artificial Intelligence by Cyber Criminals

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is responsible for technological advancements affecting many diverse aspects of society. Most of this development is focused on achieving economic or social benefits for the world’s population. As is often the case with powerful tools, there are also individuals and groups that would use the capabilities of AI and the related field of machine learning (ML) for nefarious purposes. We will take a look at a few ways where this use of technology has led to new issues and concerns by cybersecurity professionals. 


Short vs Long Resume: Does it Make a Difference to AI?

So I will hit you with a statistic - on average, experienced recruitment consultants can analyze a resume in 6 seconds. This lends to the belief that these consultants scan and look for key information to make a decision to do a deeper dive into a jobseekers career history.


Robotic Process Automation is Game Ghanger for Workflow and Processes

The idea of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) — a robotics precursor to artificial intelligence — tends to strike fear in the hearts of workers who suspect they will be replaced by robots. The reality is that is definitely not the case. There is no question that some jobs will be lost, but others will be created. In many cases, RPA will just take on extra work no one wants to do.
