Google announces its plan to make artificial intelligence more ‘human’

#google announces its plan to make artificial intelligence more ‘human’

  • As AI technology grows rapidly, Google wants to make sure that it’s accessible and inclusive, developed with people in mind.
  • Called the People + AI Research Initiative or the PAIR, this newly-announced team within the Google Brain division will “study and redesign the ways people interact with AI systems” so that we build systems with “people in mind at the start of the process.”
  • The PAIR will examine the relationship between users and technology, the vast array of applications that AI will facilitate, and how to make everything accessible and broadly inclusive.
  • The PAIR team is led by Google Brain researchers Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg, and the 12 other team members will work with researchers from Harvard University and MIT to focus on three areas of user needs:

    The PAIR won’t necessarily answer all the concerns out there.

  • Compounded by other intersectional factors, the Fourth Industrial Revolution certainly isn’t going to be an easy process, but with Google’s new initiative, we are definitely taking one step further in the right direction: the hope is that as the PAIR team grows and as its work expands, we will see its impact across Google’s apps and services as well as see similar efforts from other companies.

As AI technology grows rapidly, Google wants to make sure that it’s accessible and inclusive, developed with people in mind. That’s where the PAIR comes in.

  • But at the onset, it seems that machine learning technology is going to be the next battleground for market share.
  • “Amazon Machine Learning is a service that makes it easy for developers of all skill levels to use machine learning technology,” according to a post on Amazon’s website. “
  • Machine learning has already improved the quality and accuracy of fingerprint sensors on smartphones, which explains why Amazon is looking to fight off Microsoft to sell access to the technology.
  • Amazon is now taking AWS a step further and is reportedly working on a new cloud service focused on a branch of artificial intelligence called deep learning or machine learning (ML) , which helps train computers to recognize speech, images and objects.
  • Retailers Lure Shoppers Using Social Platforms

It seems that machine learning technology is going to be the next battleground for market share within the cloud.

Quantum Computing for Machine Learning

Quantum Computing for #MachineLearning:  #BigData #DataScience by @JDDulny @BoozAllen

  • In the talk, we will give a crash course on quantum computing and describe the current state quantum computing technology.
  • Itâ s not sci-fi: quantum computing is and itâ s changing the way we solve tough problems.
  • Weâ ll focus on a special type of quantum optimization called quantum annealing and its applications in the growing field of machine learning.
  • Start a Meetup Group Start a Meetup Group
  • To further facilitate collaboration, each Smart Talk will feature a 1 hour mixer after the speaking session.

About the talk…
It’s not sci-fi: quantum computing is here and it’s changing the way we solve tough problems. Quantum computers make use of the quantum mechanical properties of special materials to
