INSIGHT AS A SERVICE: INFO PROS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

June 17, 2019

“Thinking machines” and artificial intelligence started out with some bad press. Victor Frankenstein’s monster and the HAL 9000 computer onboard the spacecraft of 2001: A Space Odyssey were neither good citizens or user-friendly technology. These two examples point out both the power and peril of attempts to mimic human thought processes and decision-making that resulted in creations with tremendous power but no soul.

Artificial Intelligence in the corporate world

whitePaper | November 25, 2019

In 2020, artificial intelligence will no longer be a vision of the future, but a tangible reality: language agents such as Siri, Cortana or Alexa are already pervading our everyday lives. The smart assistants play our favorite music, make restaurant suggestions, recommend films, identify the fastest route to our destination and steer our car better into the parking lot than we could. We use artificially intelligent systems that are becoming more and more a matter of course both at home and at work. AI systems have slipped into our everyday lives and they are here to stay.

Making AI Inclusive: 4 Guiding Principles for Ethical Engagement

whitePaper | July 20, 2022

The growing diversity of actors and circumstances involved in AI/ML deployment makes establishing a set of ethical participatory practices especially difficult for this field. Even among practitioners working at the same organization, there can be substantial differences in both their knowledge about how AI/ML systems were created or will be used and their ability to incorporate inclusive practices. Additionally, the greater availability of AI development platforms, including “no-code” platforms, means that algorithmic models can be deployed without having deep expertise, expanding the number of circumstances automated systems are deployed in. This means many more instances where automated systems are being deployed without consideration of how the algorithms were developed, the provenance of the datasets and nature of the bias on which they were trained and tested, and the ethical implications of their development and deployment.

Best Practices for Secure Access of Third Party APIs from Mobile Apps

whitePaper | September 28, 2022

Mobile apps typically communicate with several backend services over the Internet. In some cases those services may have been developed specifically for that mobile app, but in most cases the app will be dependent on services developed by a 3rd party. This whitepaper discusses how communication with those services can be properly secured, and how Approov’s new runtime secrets protection feature enables significantly enhanced security to be added with a minimum of development effort.

What Businesses with AI in Production Can Teach Those Lagging Behind

whitePaper | August 25, 2022

Businesses are in different stages with their artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. Even today, after many years of evaluating AI, only one third of organizations have actually put AI into production (31%1 ). Organizations that started somewhat later are currently prototyping their AI solutions (20%). Companies that only recently came on board with AI are experimenting with AI technologies for their business cases (25%). And a relatively large portion (24%) have only just begun evaluating AI for their business cases.
