- When Unanimous AI developed UNU in 2015, the goal was to create artificial intelligence (AI) systems that “keep people in the loop,” amplifying human intelligence instead of replacing it.
- Unanimous AI’s March Madness bracket was able to beat all but three percent of ESPN brackets across the country on the first day of the tournament.
- The technology makes use of the collective intelligence of people — combining “knowledge, insights, and intuitions,” as Unanimous AI puts it — to develop a kind of artificial intelligence that’s inherently human.
- As Unanimous AI explains, “We empower people to act as ‘data processors’ that come together online and form an intelligent system, connected by AI algorithms.
- One day, perhaps we’ll be able to combine the intelligence of Watson with that of a swarm of medical professionals to improve healthcare, or combine the insights of an investment-making AI with a swarm of finance experts.
The collective intelligence is killing it on ESPN.

- In case you missed it, there’s a post on Medium by Steven Levy that explains everything you might want to know about how machine learning works at Apple.
- It’s a fascinating account of the Apple Brain, the A.I. hidden inside your iPhone.
- And yes, when Apple buys a company, it is usually doing that to hire the people.
- Is this the new Apple, a company that allows people to get an inside view of what they are doing?
- And we at least get some juicy information, like this line about how the Apple Pencil works with the iPad Pro: “Using a machine learning model for ‘palm rejection’ enabled the screen sensor to detect the difference between a swipe, a touch, and a pencil input with a very high degree of accuracy.”

A couple of weeks ago, Coca-Cola’s global senior digital director Mariano Bosaz told Adweek he wanted “to start experimenting” with “automated narratives,” including using bots for music and editing the closing credits of commercials.

- Many lawyers have elevated IQ’s, though relatively few seem to possess high EQ’s– commonly called ‘people skills’.
- Artificial intelligence (AI), a recent entrant in the legal vertical, scores high on IQ, but the jury is still out on whether machines can develop comparable EQ.
- How is human intelligence—IQ and EQ– applied to legal practice, and what functions require specialized training and social skills that cannot be performed by machines?
- Put another way, what are the core functions that lawyers perform, and what attributes differentiate effective human lawyers from machine ones?
- And while some of the rote chores that support the work they do—legal research, discovery production review, statistical analysis—can certainly be performed by machines—only human lawyers can synthesize it and communicate it to others in a way that evokes confidence (“I’m sure glad she’s my lawyer!)
Analytical prowess (IQ), people skills (EQ) and artificial intelligence (AI) are three kinds of intelligence in the legal marketplace. Who is best suited for what tasks is largely driven by which resource–human or machine has the necessary form of intelligence. This article examines the three.

- ARM, which designs the chips that power virtually every smartphone in the world, is anticipating a world where artificial intelligence will be running on every device.
- To address this shift, ARM is launching a major update to its chip architecture with what it calls DynamIQ.
- ARM’s new central processing unit (or CPU) architecture will cluster multiple different processing cores together with each one tailored for right software, including a dedicated processor for handling AI algorithms.
- ARM claims this approach will boost AI performance 50 times compared with its current chips over the next three to five years.
- DynamIQ is an evolution of ARM’s last big shift in architecture with the 2011 introduction of so-called big.LITTLE, where two sets of big and small processing cores power the appropriate application to reduce battery consumption.
Your next iPhone could be thinking for itself.
