- We’re building an artificial intelligence-powered dystopia, one click at a time, says techno-sociologist Zeynep Tufekci.
- In an eye-opening talk, she details how the same algorithms companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon use to get you to click on ads are also used to organize your access to political and social information.
- Techno-sociologist Zeynep Tufekci asks big questions about our societies and our lives, as both algorithms and digital connectivity spread.
We’re building an artificial intelligence-powered dystopia, one click at a time, says techno-sociologist Zeynep Tufekci. In an eye-opening talk, she details how the same algorithms companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon use to get you to click on ads are also used to organize your access to political and social information. And the machines aren’t even the real threat. What we need to understand is how the powerful might use AI to control us — and what we can do in response.

- To better understand the AI revolution in business, Salesforce Research compiled insights from previous studies, capturing input from 10,800 respondents from sales, services and marketing leaders and 7,000 consumers and business buyers around the globe.
- AI steps into the business strategy spotlight: while a minority of businesses currently use AI, interest in the technology (machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, smart data discovery, etc) is pervasive and planned adoption is strong.
- AI use cases span sales, service, and marketing: AI has the potential to become as ubiquitous as electricity or cloud computing.
- All lines of business are starting to view AI as technology that can improve customer engagement, improve employee productivity and ultimately accelerate digital transformation and business growth (revenue).
- The power of AI is the ability to gain more knowledge from data, and to augment sales, service and marketing intelligence to help accelerate and bolster a company’s ability to improve stakeholder (employees, partners and customers) performance and experience.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) could double annual economic growth rates by 2035. – Accenture
According to Accenture, In five years, more than half …

- Software engineers using machine learning in applications or building machine learning infrastructure.
- Please join us for our first Machine Learning Unconference, an experimental gathering driven by its participants rather than an organizing committee.
- OpenAI is sponsoring and hosting the event, but the event itself has no official organization – it’s just people who find this invitation interesting, meeting to discuss machine learning.
- We’d like to try instead hosting an event focused on the most valuable part of any conference: the people.
- We’re particularly excited to support women, minorities, and members of other groups underrepresented in machine learning.

@jackclarkSF: “Like AI? Come to the @OpenAI machine learning unconference < grants available!”
Machine learning is moving incredibly quickly. To keep up, many
practioners spend several weeks a year at conferences. However,
conference presentations are all on work submitted months prior,
meaning that people are already intimately familiar with the content
(and it’s often already been surpassed).
