Because AI systems get smarter as they analyze more data, when you get ahead by a month, you’re ahead by a year, and when you get ahead by a year, you’re ahead by a decade. China is quickly getting ahead by a year or more, which means it might not be catchable. While the West contemplates adding to the regulatory burden of tech companies, China has cleared the way for the likes of Tencent and Alibaba BABA, to innovate.
According to a study published last week, the United States is quickly falling behind other developed nations in preparing workers for a future driven by AI and automation. The Automation Readiness Index looks at 25 advanced economies to determine which is making the greatest strides in preparing their workforce for an automated future.
In Dr. Howard’s 2017 paper in The Science and Engineering Ethics Journal, “The Ugly Truth About Ourselves and Our Robot Creations: The Problem of Bias and Social Inequality,” she points out that the biases of the world at large appear to have crept into artificial intelligence. “Intelligent though they may be, these algorithms maintain some of the same biases that permeate society.
South Korea, Germany, and Japan are most prepared for the coming wave of automation, according to a new report by The Economist. The U.S., on the other hand, ranks ninth out of 25 countries. And the most-at-risk countries? Mexico, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
Today, both teachers and learners use computers, tablets and other devices as study tools. In fact, it’s now almost normal for people to study in the comfort of their homes, online. But still, experts say artificial intelligence is what learners need to effectively benefit from education.
Developing fully intelligent education tools and new virtual teaching assistants will take time for sure. But given the current technological advancements, here is the five changes AI is already making on special education market today.
The advent of artificial intelligence could increase societal inequalities, or it could provide teachers with the tools to customize instruction for every individual student. The outcome comes down to how our society lays the groundwork for the rapid changes AI promises to deliver.
Deloitte predicts that the next 12 months will see significant progress in augmented reality, mobile device usage, and increasingly sophisticated chips. But the most dominant trend will be machine learning -- when programs predict or explain using large amounts of data without being explicitly programmed -- according to Stewart.
AI has arrived, but are companies ready for it? According to an MIT scientist, executives are underestimating the speed, scope, and scale of the disruption it will bring.
From the moment the word “robot” was first uttered in a Czechoslovakian play nearly 100 years ago, man has feared his creation will someday kill the creator. It’s a narrative that has stuck with us, said Patrick Tucker, Defense One’s Technology Editor, at a recent event in Washington called Genius Machines: The Next Decade of Artificial Intelligence:...
