Here's Where AI is Making a Difference

In the years to come, artificial intelligence (AI) will become increasingly present in almost every part of human life. From work to personal life, AI will inspire various actions and will inspire decisions we make in areas such as shopping, marketing, media, transportation, and education, among others. As this technology continues showing immense potential, expectations surrounding it will continue growing, and so will be the calls for transparency and ethics, which will be too much for businesses to ignore. Regardless of this, here are a few ways in which AI is already making a difference.


Photos Get Better With the Use of AI

If you are wondering how the future of photography will look like, you might want to start by doing a little research on what smartphone manufacturers say about artificial intelligence. Beyond all the buzz you see in blogs and TV about what AI can or cannot do, this technology has significantly changed photography over the past decade. This progress seems to have just started. There are still many developments that should be expected for sure. However, the most recent advances in software and hardware are giving photography what it has been missing all along. Looking at Google Photos, there is a clear demonstration of how the mix of AI and photography can bring to the table. Before the launch of Google Photos back in 2015, the tech giant was using machine learning in the categorization of images in Google+.


AI Might Make Us Look Better

Man versus machine is the theme that has occupied technology discussions for decades. From John Henry, the steel-driving man to the current artificial intelligence (AI) and self-driving cars, the discussion around machines taking over from man is not going anywhere any time soon. For decades, artificial intelligence has developed significantly, and people are now worried that it might take away power long held by man. Today, an area that worries many is the impact that AI will have on human employment. While this can be true somehow, the reality is that machines can make us look far much better than some might think. AI is a disruptor, and this talk is nothing new to fear. For more than two centuries, we have been hearing about the potential obsolescence of humans in the workforce since the start of the first Industrial Revolution.


How Can Bias be eliminated from AI Systems?

 Over the years, human biases have been laid bare, and most of them are well-documented. From the field experiments that demonstrate human biases to implicit association tests that show some of the prejudices that we are not even aware of, humans are irredeemably prejudiced, and that is not new to anybody. As artificial intelligence continues developing at unprecedented levels, it is emerging that human biases have made their way to AI systems- leading to harmful results. 


Is AI-Assisted Contact Tracing Reliable?

The coronavirus pandemic and the threat that it brings on the health of individuals has confined many people to their homes. People are being forced to self-isolate or practice social distancing from one another as a way of ensuring that infections are minimized, and mortalities are reduced. Meanwhile, the pressure is piling up on agencies responsible to do more than just enforcing social distancing. One of the things that many countries and responsible agencies are using is contact tracing. As we look at how we can reduce the spread of the virus so that we may emerge from the first wave of the crisis and economic effect, contact tracing is the only method that can be used so far to limit community transmissions.


Is Your Company’s Digital Nervous System Functioning at 100%?

The human brain relies on a network of sensory inputs from the entire body to orient itself within space and time, take in the world and make sense of it all. It processes reams of data that change by the second, as well as a lifetime of memories to make split second decisions crucial to its well-being. I heard a lot about this growing up because my beloved grandfather, Dr. Harry Dickson Patton, was a professor of physiology and biophysics at the University of Washington in Seattle. He named his boat “The Neuron.”


AI Can't Cure COVID-19

With the coronavirus now spreading fast across countries, many people are looking for information on how to approach it. This involves finding out what works and what does not. With such a need for information, disinformation is also spreading across borders more than ever before. One of the most recent disinformation is that artificial intelligence can cure COVID-19. Such kind of information circulating online is not only misleading but is dangerous as well. With the increase in the number of social media users and platforms, such mis/disinformation can reach millions of people within a short time.


Made Dizzy By COVID-19 Data? Artificial Intelligence Helps Clear Things Up

As governors begin to make decisions about reopening the economy, Americans are left to wonder whether they should follow their state government’s lead – or make their own decisions about when to return to normal. One problem for the average person: How to decipher the multitudes of data about COVID-19 and evaluate whether the country or any particular state is – or is not – flattening the curve.


How can we create AI ethically?

The growth of AI over the past few years has been extraordinary and inspires confidence that we will someday achieve AGI. The recent breakthrough of Google Deepmind’s AlphaGo, for example, signaled a major step for the field toward ‘general’ artificial intelligence, or AGI. The game of Go requires a higher level of intuition and cognition than, say, chess because it includes too many permutations for the computer to simply calculate all possible scenarios.


AI is Weighing In on the Fight against COVID-19

In the face of the current coronavirus pandemic, various arsenals are being assembled to help in the fight against the stubborn virus. A digital response to this pandemic can take different forms and yield various results, one being the rapid delivery of test results and a fast assessment of infection risks. One of the promising technologies proving helpful in this fight is Artificial Intelligence (AI). This technology is now weighing in the fight with initial results showing that it can be the silver bullet both in search of medication and assessing the damage that the virus has caused as it spreads through the human body.
