  • Some of that evolution should occur as a private company and some can and should occur as a public company.”
  • Finally she noted how to take risks in leadership: “When you’re in a business and you’re running a business, you should make sure you know as much as you can.
  • To disrupt an industry, you need dynamic resources — People, products and services as ambitious as you are.
  • But if I were to pick the one technology that I think will change the industry the most, it’s definitely machine intelligence.”
  • In a wide-ranging interview, Nasdaq’s CEO discusses FinTech, blockchain, private companies and more.

The Humans Working Behind the AI Curtain

The Humans Working Behind the AI Curtain  #AI #Startup #Innovation

  • AI will eliminate some work as it opens up opportunities for redefining what work humans do best.
  • The Humans Working Behind the AI Curtain
  • This blend of AI and humans, who follow through when the AI falls short, isn’t going away anytime soon.
  • Contract workers are needed to train algorithms to make some of the most important decisions about content.
  • It turns out the AI, just like humans, struggles to make tough decisions about what content should and should not be included in our daily diets of social media, depending on what criteria or values we want to impose.

The dirty little secret of automation is that people make it possible.

IBM’s Project Intu Offers Developers Unprecedented Access to its Watson A.I.

IBM Offers Unprecedented Access to Its #Watson #AI 
  [via @bludevelop_tor] #IBMWatson

  • Project Intu could help IBM make sure those developers choose Watson.
  • If people take advantage of this program, Watson could make sure their supposedly “smart” products aren’t quite as elementary as they are now.
  • Watson is about to get a lot busier .
  • Watson has already been used to do everything from enable robot concierges to help a professor at Georgia Tech manage the online forums of his A.I. course.
  • The question is whether those groups will tap Watson, Alexa, Google’s DeepMind, or some other service to provide those A.I. capabilities.

IBM’s Project Intu will make the Watson A.I. more available to developers of robots, Internet of Things products, and more.

MIT’s AI figured out how humans recognize faces

#MIT's #AI figured out how humans recognize faces ▷

  • MIT’s AI figured out how humans recognize faces
  • In layman’s terms, this means the system, which was looking for invariance (or non-difference) between faces, was able to do so regardless of whether a face was flipped, as long as it was rotated in the same angle.
  • The Atlas robot is getting better at chasing you down
  • The as-yet-unnamed system is a computational model of how the human brain recognizes faces, and was trained to identify particular visages from a battery of sample images it was fed.
  • Understanding how we recognize people could help facial recognition systems get significantly better and more accurate, which has vast applications in tech.

It appears machines may already be catching up to humans, at least in the world of computational biology. A team of researchers at the MIT-based Center for Brai…
