UNDERSTANDING AI DECEPTION AND HOW ONE CAN PREPARE AGAINST IT

Article | February 26, 2020

When talking about advents of artificial intelligence, we hear a lot about its adversarial attacks, specifically those that attempt to “deceive” an AI into believing, or to be more accurate, classifying, something incorrectly. For example, autonomous vehicles can be fooled into “thinking” stop signs are speed limit signs, pandas being identified as gibbons, or even having your favorite voice assistant be fooled by inaudible acoustic commands. Such examples showcase the narrative around AI deception. In another form, AI can be deceptive in manipulating the perceptions and beliefs of a person through “deepfakes” in video, audio, and images. The significant AI conferences held around the world are more frequently addressing the subject of AI deception too. And yet a lot of debates and discussions are happening on how we can defend against it through detection mechanisms

The streaming, AI and VR-assisted future of listening

Article | March 29, 2020

As our world has become filled with screens in our work as well as personal lives, it has also become filled with more and more visual imagery – and it can all start to feel a bit garish, a bit fake or simply too much. For some time now, whenever I’m in the office, instead of sitting in front of my laptop over lunch, I force myself away from my desk for 15 minutes, find a quiet space or just sit in my car, put in my earphones, turn on some music, and close my eyes. I've found that I can actually relax better by tuning out the visual world and concentrating on my music. I sleep better, I dream better, I live better.

Feeling increasingly distressed by fakery and overloaded with superficial images, millennials and Gen Z in particular are seeking deeper connection, greater meaning and more mindfulness – and they’re finding it when they close their eyes and start to listen.

Researchers use Artificial Intelligence to predict drug response in lung cancer therapies

Article | March 22, 2020

Researchers have used Artificial Intelligence (AI) to train algorithms and predict tumour sensitivity in three advanced non-small cell lung cancer therapies which can help predict more accurate treatment efficacy at an early stage of the disease. The researchers at Columbia University's Irving Medical Center analysed CT images from 92 patients receiving drug agent nivolumab in two trials; 50 patients receiving docetaxel in one trial, and 46 patients receiving gefitinib in one trial. To develop the model, the researchers used the CT images taken at baseline and on first-treatment assessment.

How to lead a successful data-literacy program: 6 steps

Article | February 25, 2020

Data insights are a critical element to success and businesses strive to use what they've learned Despite it still being a struggle—90% of data and analytics decision makers see increasing the use of data insights in business decision making as a priority, according to a Forrester report, "Data Literacy Matters: The Writing's On The Wall." "Organizations need to invest in data literacy, and by that we don't mean just improving the skills of business analysts or data scientists," said Forrester principal analyst Jennifer Belissent, who wrote the report. "Data literacy programs must start with basic skills and general awareness of what is data today, how it can be used, the value that it brings to the organization, and their role in collecting and protecting it. That's the only way to ensure that everyone in the organization is doing their part," Belissent added.
