Article | March 29, 2020

Governments all around the globe are using artificial intelligence (AI) to help fight against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The technology is being used for various different things, including speeding up the development of testing kits and treatments, giving citizens access to real-time data, and tracking the spread of the virus. South Korea’s government, one that is being touted as an example for how to combat the virus, pushed their private sector to start developing testing kits right away, immediately after the reports began to arrive out of China. One of those companies was Seoul-based molecular biotech company Seegene, which used AI to help quicken the process of developing testing kits. The company was able to submit its solution to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) just three weeks after the scientists began their work.

Is AI just as Biased as the Humans Creating It?

Article | March 29, 2020

The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom." Isaac Asimov This is a reprint from article in ReadWrite It might appear that data — the information you find in a scientific article, a history book, or a set of survey results — is just a collection of objective facts.
