Artificial Intelligence Policy and the European Union
In late 2019, then newly elected European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced her intent to make regulating the use of artificial intelligence (AI) a top priority for Europe. She promised to “put forward legislation for a coordinated European approach on the human and ethical implications of Artificial Intelligence” within her first 100 days in office.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence in a brave new world

whitePaper | December 22, 2022

Machine learning, one of the key building blocks of AI, has been a part of the technological world since the 1950s, when the earliest programmers asked computers to make sense of large sets of data. Programmers have increasingly refined the ability of machines to study data in order to detect patterns that allow computers to then organise information, identify relationships, make predictions and detect anomalies. Today, modern applications of AI have already given us self-driving cars and virtual assistants and have helped us detect fraud and manage resources like electricity more efficiently. Sectors as diverse as retail, sports, banking, manufacturing and healthcare have all found applications for machine learning and AI.

AI in Planning: Opportunities and Challenges and How to Prepare

whitePaper | September 28, 2022

As stated in the American Planning Association’s 2022 Trend Report for Planners, over centuries, professions have evolved with changing environments, shifting eras, new challenges, societal shifts, and technological innovations. While some professions have become obsolete or or were replaced by technology, others have adapted or readjusted and stayed relevant in an ever-changing world. What is different today is the pace of change, which requires faster, even proactive, adjustments—including new tools, processes, and skills.

IBM Watson NLP Performance with Intel Optimizations

whitePaper | December 29, 2022

In our modern world, taking advantage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to gain insights from data is becoming more prevalent day by day. Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) systems use multiple cores to perform parallel processing, running select workloads to decrease processing times. Compared to GPUs, Central Processing Units (CPUs) have fewer cores; previously, this resulted in less capacity for parallelized processing. To move beyond this limitation, Intel has released new hardware that runs typical AI mathematical computations more efficiently on the CPU, and has also released libraries with hardware optimizations that enable an additional increase in performance.

Fair Use of AI

whitePaper | June 28, 2022

Questions touching on AI ethics and fairness are becoming more mainstream. In recent years we have seen greater public consciousness of what was once a relatively obscure academic issue. This includes the close attention paid to the use of an algorithm to determine 2020 A-levels by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (or “Ofqual”).

Artificial Intelligence in Talent Assessment and Selection

whitePaper | December 1, 2021

The health and vibrancy of our national economy depends on the health and vibrancy of our organizations. How an organization is staffed is a key driver of its health. Yet only one in three executives rates his or her company as “very effective” at reducing unsuccessful hiring decisions (Bravery et al., 2019). Thus, industrial-organizational (I-O) psychologists help organizations thrive by choosing the right talent for the right job at the right time, using the most accurate, cost effective, and fair tools available (Ployhart, Schmitt, & Tippins, 2017).
