Urgent Need for New Policy Approaches to Cope With Massive AGI and IOT Changes Coming to the Global Internet.
Paul John Werbos (born 1947) is an American social scientist and machine learning pioneer. He is best known for his 1974 dissertation, which first described the process of training artificial neural networks through backpropagation of errors. He also was a pioneer of recurrent neural networks.
Robocalls are at an all-time high. On average, Americans received more than 2,000 robocalls every second in October, up 25% from the previous month. With 49 billion robocalls so far this year, all four major U.S. phone carriers now offer some form of blocking or screening service, such as T-Mobile's well known "Scam Likely" label. Congress and state officials passed new robocall regulations in recent months and have seen an uptick in successful cases against the scammers. Meanwhile, hundreds of tech start-ups are developing new ways to tackle the problem.

The Starkey Livio AI is the first hearing aid to introduce multiple sensors. These sensors mean that the hearing aid can track your daily activity such as how many steps you take, along with other features like fall detection and social engagement.
Many experts predict that the emerging 5G wireless technology will revolutionize the world's economy. They say it holds the key to a smarter, more efficient, more connected and much wealthier world. But a recent congressional report outlines how China plans to use the transition to 5G and its access to billions of networked electronic devices for intelligence-gathering, sabotage and business deals. As VOA's Jela de Franceschi reports, China's aim is to put an end to US high-tech pre-eminence.
Achin Bhowmik, CTO at Starkey Hearing Technologies, talks about redefining what a hearing aid is using sensors and AI, enhancing machine perception to augment the human experience.
Tonya Hall and Dr. Achin Bhowmik, chief technology officer and executive vice president of engineering at Starkey Hearing Technologies, discuss the future of wearable and perceptual computing.
Developed in the lab of Yale's Rebecca Kramer-Bottiglio, NASA-inspired robotic skins enable users to turn soft objects - a stuffed animal or a foam tube, for instance - into robots.
