1.1.2020 This special issue aims to 1) draw attention of relevant communities to this emerging and promising research area; 2) provide a forum to disseminate the latest views and research results relating to the theories and practice of H-AI; 3) inspire and stimulate relevant research and technology development; 4) help guide and forge research communities for future H-AI research.
5.27.19 The project will focus on research in AI projects including decision support, maintenance and logistics, talent management, medical readiness, situational awareness, business operations and disaster relief, according to a news release.
Google Opens First Africa Artificial Intelligence Lab
5.15.19 Take the app “PlantMD” for example, created this year thanks to an open source machine learning library called Tensorflow by Google. This app lets you detect diseases in plants, in order to help farmers better identify and contain the spread diseases more quickly. Farmers can now wave their phones in front of a leaf and if a plant had a disease, the app can identify it and provide options on the best ways to manage it.
5.14.19 trends in the A.I. industry are interesting. The industry as a whole is strong with a steadily increasing emphasis on patenting. However, it appears as though recent challenges in protecting business-method innovations is affecting decisions as to whether to file at least some A.I. applications. The recent Updated Eligibility Guidance may potentially reverse both of the allowance-decrease and filing-decrease trends, but the readers will have to wait for next year’s study to know for sure. Finally, even though the quantity of U.S. A.I. applications has been increasing, the overall representation of the U.S. in the patenting space of A.I. is decreasing.
5.13.19 34.41 Chief Data Scientist Melinda Han William's presentation from the 2019 Strata Data Conference.
5.11.19 The global artificial-intelligence (AI) market should grow at a compound annual rate of 55.6% between 2018 and 2025, according to a forecast by Allied Market Research, as a wide range of industries use the technology to streamline and improve their businesses.
5.9.19 three students from Macaulay Honors College and one from the College of Staten Island, developed an A.I.-powered assistant that can be utilized by trained volunteers to improve mental health services for veterans.
cloud-based, A.I.-driven mental health assistant geared specifically to help veterans, a group for whom suicide is 1.5 and 1.8 times more prevalent among men and women, respectively, than the general population. On average, 22 veterans commit suicide every day. Using REX (IBM Watson-based A.I.), the developers say they can evaluate the mental state of users and direct them to needed services. Cloud connectivity will provide support to those in need at any time, regardless of their location. The A.I.-driven system, in concert with a network of trained volunteers, can provide 24/7 support channels and potentially cut suicide rates in half.
5.9.19 U.S. Rep. Bill Foster will serve as chairman of a newly created task force that will probe how artificial intelligence is affecting how consumers interact with and use financial services.
The Naperville Democrat and particle physicist was named to head the group by Rep. Maxine Waters, who chairs the House Committee on Financial Services.
The task force will look at issues that include applications of machine learning in financial services and regulation; digital identification technologies and combating fraud; and automation and its impact on jobs in financial services and the overall economy.
5.7.19 Artificial intelligence is taking us into a whole new world. Canada is on the forefront of developing the technology, but as Mike Drolet reports, there are few regulations and no rules governing how it will develop.
5.6.19 As technology continues to advance rapidly, expect to see more mobile app development and AI used in the workplace. NAVSUP BSC and the Enterprise Web Team have developed more than 100 apps to date, and continuously field calls from DoD customers and Supply Corps officers looking for innovative ways to accelerate digital solutions and modernize business processes.
5.1.19 Microtargeted campaigns can be designed to capitalize on an individual’s demographic, psychographic, geographic, and behavioral data to predict his or her buying behavior, interests, and opinions. By inferring things based on an amalgamation of evidence and consistent implementation of a strategy, microtargeting does not merely reflect or predict an individual’s beliefs. It can also alter them.
4.27.19 Are you wondering what artificial intelligence is and what it can do? Look at self-driven cars which used to be imagination and are now a reality. Activities like booking appointments can now be done by machines and we have drones which can deliver orders to people’s homes. Robots are even performing shipping and manufacturing duties.
Check out these videos which demonstrate how Artificial Intelligence has steadily improved over the past few years.
4.19.19 3.24 Tech experts are sounding the alarm over developing artificial intelligence technology, which may usher in a new generation of fake news.
4.2019 Artificial intelligence (AI) is proving to be a double-edged sword. While this can be said of most new technologies, both sides of the AI blade are far sharper, and neither is well understood.
4.17.19 However, Dixon said the future of AI research will require an “all-hands-on-deck” approach, with partnerships between government, the private sector and academia.
“The government used to be the biggest funder of a lot of things, and now we’re not … We know that there are going to be venture firms that are going to give more money more quickly to a startup company than government would be able to do in that same timeline,” Dixon said. “We have to figure out how to live in this space where the great industry investments can also support national security endeavors.”
4.16.19 The metaphor of a simple manufacturing process offers a simple way of understanding the AI competition. The raw materials in AI are datasets, processed through machine-learning techniques powered by computers, resulting in trained algorithms for numerous applications. Applying this framework to the United States and China AI competition suggests the United States is currently ahead, but soon may not be. In some respects, the United States is already losing.
4.16.19 Today, artificial intelligence is actually able to provide much of the same evidence that human witnesses can, with a higher degree of accuracy, unerring memory and an absence of personal motivation.
4.14.19 The facial recognition technology, which is integrated into China’s rapidly expanding networks of surveillance cameras, looks exclusively for Uighurs based on their appearance and keeps records of their comings and goings for search and review. The practice makes China a pioneer in applying next-generation technology to watch its people, potentially ushering in a new era of automated racism.
4.13.19 Artificial intelligence powered facial recognition for phone opening and mobile payments are as of now a reality, guaranteeing more noteworthy security. Cell phones can consolidate AI with sensor inputs like biometric information and even advanced analysis of user conduct to improve safety efforts. Artificial intelligence can even analyze things like weight applied on the console or the client’s remarkable style of swiping, typing and strolling to validate access.
4.12.19 “We’ve been trying for years to find a way to partition patients based simply on symptoms and it hasn’t worked out that well,” he said. “But by looking at remission — what treatments helped patients — and clustering people based on their remission using AI, we can see patterns that we haven’t been able to see before about what types of patients will do the best with what types of medications.”
Biometric surveillance raises ethics concerns for China-U.S. AI industry sharing
4.12.19 Microsoft Research Asia co-wrote three papers on artificial intelligence and facial analysis with researchers associated with the Chinese military’s National University of Defense Technology last year, The Financial Times reports. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) says that makes the company complicit in human rights abuses carried out by the Chinese government.
4.12.19 Imagine a future technology that would provide instant access to the world’s knowledge and artificial intelligence, simply by thinking about a specific topic or question. Communications, education, work, and the world as we know it would be transformed.
4.10.19 The Guidelines explicitly recognise that a trustworthy AI must be grounded in fundamental rights and that the protection of freedoms of association and assembly contribute to forming a basis for trustworthy AI. For this reason, the Guidelines advise AI developers to consult all stakeholders who may directly or indirectly be affected by the deployment of AI systems throughout their life cycle and recommend setting up long- term mechanisms to solicit their feedback.
Google Dissolves AI Ethics Board Just One Week After Forming It
4.4.19 The pressure on Google, which had yet to respond to the initial backlash, mounted over last weekend when Carnegie Mellon Professor Alessandro Acquisti stepped down on Saturday, writing on Twitter, “While I’m devoted to research grappling with key ethical issues of fairness, rights, and inclusion in AI, I don’t believe this is the right forum for me to engage in this important work.” By the beginning of this week, thousands of Googlers had signed a petition asking for James’ removal from the board.
AI Researchers Ask Amazon to Stop Selling Face Recognition to Law Enforcement
4.3.19 Those who signed the letter include prominent voices in AI and ethics as well as Yoshua Bengio, a computer scientist who recently received the $1 million Turing Award with two colleagues for his role in developing the deep-learning technology that underpins modern AI—which is crucial to face recognition. Bengio has recently emerged as a key voice on the risks of AI.
3.2019 The robot’s ability to identify, target, and engage doesn’t mean “we’re putting the machine in a position to kill anybody,” one Army official told Defense One.
11.15.2018 Neuroscientists & engineers at Columbia University & Northwell Health in NY are mapping the brain's private language so that they may soon be able to translate the voice inside our heads.
2.7.19 The devices were worn by 10,000 schoolchildren aged between 10 and 17 during a recent trial in China, according to New Scientist.
1.31.19 1.10.52 As a military I.T. professional, Raul learned that the U.S. Army is actively engaged in Remote Neural Monitoring of innocent civilians. He states that men overseeing this operation are bad men, but that there are "good men on the inside that want to do the right thing". Raul tells as much as he can without exposing Top Secret Classified Information, but states that there is hope for us all. His perspective shines light on how this illegal technology is affecting thousands of innocent people around the world.
Psychological Warfare Operatives
1.26.19 2.07.39 Dr. Katherine Horton talks about how to spot psychological warfare operatives and how to counter them.
1.22.19 1.55.39 Dr. Karlstrom delves into a study of the CIA's Phoenix program in Vietnam which seems to have supplied the blueprint along with Hoover's COINTELPRO in the US in the 50s and onward for the current-day horrors of gangstalking and surveillance abuse, along with summary deposit of watchlistees--usually stand-out people of integrity in communities--into ruthless military programs of body-hacking and brain-hacking and total life-destruction.
Remote Neural Monitoring Patents
1.20.19 12.44 They could see through a cat’s eyes in the 90s - think about what they can do now.
1.4.19 An advisory board is drafting guidelines that may help shape worldwide norms for military artificial intelligence — and woo Silicon Valley to defense work.
1.3.19 "We present BrainNet which, to our knowledge, is the first multi-person non-invasive direct brain-to-brain interface for collaborative problem solving," wrote the researchers in October 2018.
12.31.2018 All of a Targeted Individuals electronic smart devices serve as data collection points, mapping the targets daily routine into a digital profile which is called “COMPOSITION HABITS.” The RNM Supercomputer then uses those composition habits to monitor and aggregate the Targeted Individuals every move.
Electronic games, smart toys and other interactive electronic gadgets are used by the RNM Supercomputer to monitor, map out and reverse engineer the victims synaptic responses.
They use smart meters, smart TVs, smart appliances, etc., to determine the private life habits of the victim inside their homes, cars, etc., all of which can be breached remotely at anytime.
The RNM Supercomputer then takes all of that data and creates algorithms to monitor and manipulate the victim subconsciously, via remote neural attacks, 24/7 until the day of their death.
Using those algorithms the NSA Supercomputer then begins to manipulate the victims’ social media, news feeds, search engine results, etc. That’s the new reality.
12.18.2018 Should we be worried about the creation of artificial intelligence? For me, this is a simple question with an even simpler, three letter answer: yes. Many people, including the late physicist Stephen Hawking, have raised concerns that the rise of powerful AI systems could spell the end for humanity.
