Researchers at the USC are using AI to preserve water supplies after quakes and help the US Coast Guard prepare for disaster relief.
Artificial Intelligence – a mere tool, a partner or a potential enemy (Part Three – Risks and Perspectives)
Over the last couple of decades, we have witnessed a skyrocketing evolution of AI. At first, machines became better than us at chess and boardgames. Then, they set up new communication channels or techniques. Both remarkable and scary, this transformation inevitably makes us wonder: what will the future bring?

During the last decade, Artificial Intelligence doesn’t mean just algorithms, calculations and probabilities. The concept of AI and its related technologies are now much more complex than what Deep Blue was.
Artificial Intelligence – a mere tool, a partner or a potential enemy? (Part One – Gary Kasparov and Lee Sedol)
After man made the machines, he wanted to endow them with a sort of intelligence. Not like his own, but, anyway, to make them smart. As we find ourselves in the middle of technological progress, how does it look so far? We’ll try to find out by making a retrospection, then an introspection and eventually talk a bit about the future.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the tech of the day, and the NHS is utilising tech startups to provide care for patients with greater speed and accuracy.
From 16 May-26 August 2019, the Barbican is hosting an exploration and celebration of artificial intelligence.
Facial recognition technology has multiple flaws. One of its biggest – it’s not very good at recognising faces.
It’s easy to assume that the decisions produced by an algorithm would be neutral. By letting an uninvested and objective machine make a decision on which applicant to hire, or who is guilty in a criminal trial, it feels as though there should be a more accurate outcome than by allowing a biased and subjective human to decide. It seems, however, that this is not the case: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is inheriting the biases of its human creators.
NASA is shining a light on the once hidden figures who powered their missions, and its opening its doors even wider to let in more light (and people).
The development of new technology means that AI is being used to counter bias in the US criminal justice system. But what about human accountability? Should the criminal justice system take responsibility for individual and institutional prejudice or hide implicit bias behind technology?
Machine learning and CCS has the potential to transform Earth’s eco-system – but they must be adopted cautiously.
