How businesses are using AI: An interactive guide

77% of companies using #cognitive tech and #AI use them to innovate products and services.

  • The organizations already apply cognitive technology to accomplish targeted business goals
  • We looked closely at a subset of advanced users – organizations using two or more cognitive technologies for at least one year.
  • We surveyed 600 early adopters of cognitive technologies and wanted to share our learnings through an interactive visual .
  • How businesses are using AI: An interactive guide
  • Many of the advanced users are embedding a full spectrum of AI technologies – including machine learning, natural language processing and more – into their processes and products.

Today’s most advanced cognitive technology users offer a glimpse into the possibilities and tangible benefits of creating intelligent businesses.

This scary artificial intelligence has learned how to pick out criminals by their faces

This scary artificial intelligence has learned how to pick out criminals by their faces

  • This scary artificial intelligence has learned how to pick out criminals by their faces
  • The neural network could tell criminals apart from non-criminals with a stunning accuracy of 89.5 percent.
  • With the advent of photography, a tiny fraction of 19th-century scientists believed they could develop methods of accurately identifying criminals by their facial features.
  • If psychologists are right to suggest humans can make out criminals from non-criminals , machines should be capable of this too – especially, since neural networks are modeled after the human brain.
  • The photographic sample that was fed to the neural network is severely limited, to say the least – both when it comes to the quantity and quality of the photos that the AI parsed.

Researchers from Shanghai Jiao Tong University have developed an artificial intelligence algorithm that can supposedly pick out criminals by their faces.

Partnership on Artificial Intelligence to Benefit People and Society

  • Established to study and formulate best practices on AI technologies, to advance the public’s understanding of AI, and to serve as an open platform for discussion and engagement about AI and its influences on people and society.
  • To advance public understanding and awareness of AI and its potential benefits and potential costs to act as a trusted and expert point of contact as questions/concerns arise from the public and others in the area of AI and to regularly update key constituents on the current state of AI progress.
  • The engagement of AI users and developers, as well as representatives of industry sectors that may be impacted by AI (such as healthcare, financial services, transportation, commerce, manufacturing, telecommunications, and media) to support best practices in the research, development, and use of AI technology within specific domains.
  • In support of the mission to benefit people and society, the Partnership on AI intends to conduct research, organize discussions, share insights, provide thought leadership, consult with relevant third parties, respond to questions from the public and media, and create educational material that advance the understanding of AI technologies including machine perception, learning, and automated reasoning.
  • The regular engagement of experts across multiple disciplines (including but not limited to psychology, philosophy, economics, finance, sociology, public policy, and law) to discuss and provide guidance on emerging issues related to the impact of AI on society.

Established to study and formulate best practices on AI technologies, to advance the public’s understanding of AI, and to serve as an open platform for discussion and engagement about AI and its influences on people and society.
