Every day we are likely to interact with some form of artificial intelligence (AI). It works behind the scenes in everything from social media and traffic navigation apps to product recommendations and virtual assistants.

AI systems can perform tasks or make predictions, recommendations or decisions that would usually require human intelligence. Their objectives are set by humans but the systems act without explicit human instructions.
As AI plays a greater role in our lives both at work and at home, questions arise. How willing are we to trust AI systems? And what are our expectations for how AI should be deployed and managed?
To find out, we surveyed a nationally representative sample of more than 2,500 Australians in June and July 2020. Our report, produced with KPMG and led by Nicole Gillespie, shows Australians on the whole don’t know a lot about how AI is used, have little trust in AI systems, and believe it should be carefully regulated.
Most accept or tolerate AI, few approve or embrace it
Trust is central to the widespread acceptance and adoption of AI. However, our research suggests the Australian public is ambivalent about trusting AI systems.
Nearly half of our respondents (45%) are unwilling …

Deep learning pioneer Yoshua Bengio has provocative ideas about the future of AI.

Maryse Boyce, IEEE Spectrum

For the first part of this article series, see here.
The field of artificial intelligence moves fast. It has only been 8 years since the modern era of deep learning began at the 2012 ImageNet competition. Progress in the field since then has been breathtaking and relentless.
If anything, this breakneck pace is only accelerating. Five years from now, the field of AI will look very different than it does today. Methods that are currently considered cutting-edge will have become outdated; methods that today are nascent or on the fringes will be mainstream.

What will the next generation of artificial intelligence look like? Which novel AI approaches will unlock currently unimaginable possibilities in technology and business?
My previous column covered three emerging areas within AI that are poised to redefine the field—and society—in the years ahead. This article will cover three more.

ARLINGTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / October 28, 2020 / Since the advancement of technology, many concepts that were thought to be impossible have been realized. Among the greatest innovations that have emerged from the digital wave is Artificial Intelligence, an idea conceived as early as the stories in Greek mythology. Olusola Amusan is an expert who founded Coven Works, a company that educates people about Artificial Intelligence. Olusola Amusan, also known as the Artificial Intelligence Evangelist, came from humble beginnings. He grew up in Modakeke, Osun State in south-western Nigeria. From a young age, Olusola showed promise as he volunteered for Society for Women and Aids in Africa and founded the Young Elites Club, forming great leadership qualities. Since then, he would go on to greater things.Around 2008, Olusola began creating a high impact coding program that would train 4,600 people who are now top software developers and decision-makers in technology companies today. Olusola was inspired to start his first business when he attended the Federal University of Technology Akure, which taught computer science students Fortran 77, a language that was considered obsolete at the time.Olusola Amusan started his career by working as a research assistant intern with the First Bank of Nigeria Professional Chair in …

COPAN’s PhenoMATRIX™ Fuses the Power of Artificial Intelligence and Culture for Highly Sensitive GBS Detection Using Breakthrough Reading Algorithm

copan’s phenomatrix™ fuses the power of artificial intelligence and culture for highly sensitive gbs detection using breakthrough reading algorithm

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

“COPAN’s PhenoMATRIX™ not only was able to detect more true positive cultures than manual review of digital culture images, but it shows that chromogenic cultures together with artificial intelligence algorithms can detect GBS colonization with the same high sensitivity as molecular detection systems,” said COPAN Diagnostics’ Scientific Director Dr. Susan Sharp. 
The study, which was published on October 21, 2020, evaluated the performance of the PhenoMatrix™ Chromogenic Detection Module digital imaging software’s ability to detect GBS from LIM broth plated on bioMérieux’s CHROMID® Strepto B at two clinical laboratories. After 48 hours of incubation, the sensitivity of COPAN’s PhenoMATRIX™ was similar to the BD MAX™ GBS molecular test — 95.5% to 96.8% respectively — and significantly higher than manual at 90.3%.2Another noteworthy discovery was that COPAN’s software never inaccurately called a culture that was determined to be a positive a negative, and it identified an additional eight true positive specimens that were missed by manual reading.  This finding establishes that the innovative PhenoMATRIX™ AI, plus classic culture, is quite the powerful combination at a fraction of the cost of molecular testing. “COPAN’s AI software, along with the use of chromogenic agars has made our decades-old agar culture for the detection of pathogens ‘new’ again,” Sharp added. PhenoMATRIX™ …

6 Ways to Improve your Business with Artificial Intelligence

6 ways to improve your business with artificial intelligence

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Artificial Intelligence is the technology that bestowed us with a fairytale-like functionality in our homes and offices. Have you seen the “ Beauty and the Beast” movie? In that movie, the beauty was in the beast’s castle, and there was no other living creature there. She was all alone, except she had a talking and moving clock, a candelabra, a teapot, and a teacup. Here are six ways to improve your business with artificial intelligence.
Science didn’t make the magic happen at the Beast’s Castle — but science has developed something close to it for us.
The wonderful technology that can make our lives easier is known as Artificial Intelligence — and you can talk to it, too.
The simplest example of artificial intelligence is Alexa and Siri. Imagine calling someone when Siri was not there. You have to find their name in the contacts, and then you have to dial them up. Now, you can simply say, “ Hey Siri, call XYZ,” and Siri will call them.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration plans to improve weather forecasting by more effectively using satellite and environmental data in a series of pilots with Google Cloud.
Google entered into a three-year other transaction authority (OTA) agreement with the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) to explore machine learning and artificial intelligence applications for not only weather but environmental monitoring, climate research and technical innovation, it announced Tuesday.
Together NESDIS and Google will develop small-scale ML and AI systems and use results from those pilots to build full-scale prototypes for operationalization across NOAA.
“Strengthening NOAA’s data processing through the use of big data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other advanced analytical approaches is critical for maintaining and enhancing the performance of our systems in support of public safety and the economy,” said Neil Jacobs, acting NOAA administrator, in the announcement. “I am excited to utilize new authorities granted to NOAA to pursue cutting-edge technologies that will enhance our mission and better protect lives and property.”
Like most agencies, NOAA has experienced an uptick in the volume of its datasets, in this case geared toward the environment. ML and AI systems could …
