Is AI just as Biased as the Humans Creating It?

Article | April 2, 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. The numbers, if sourced well, are supposed to be the hard truth untarnished by opinions, perspectives, or biases. In reality, this is rarely the case. Here is how AI can be just as biased as the humans creating it.

NEUROMORPHIC CHIPS: THE THIRD WAVE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Article | April 2, 2020

The age of traditional computers is reaching its limit. Without innovations taking place, it is difficult to move past the technology threshold. Hence it is necessary to bring major design transformation with improved performance that can change the way we view computers. The Moore’s law (named after Gordon Moore, in 1965) states that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles about every two years while their price halves. But now the law is losing its validity. Hence hardware and software experts have come up with two solutions: Quantum Computing and Neuromorphic Computing. While quantum computing has made major strides, neuromorphic is still in its lab stage, until recently when Intel announced its neuromorphic chip, Loihi. This may indicate the third wave of Artificial Intelligence.

The streaming, AI and VR-assisted future of listening

Article | April 2, 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. Even the brief lunch break clearly does some good, as I often work and engage better in the afternoon too. According to a recent study, I’m not alone. 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.
