Hi there! There are so many Artificial Intelligence new out there, and so little time! We picked up the most interesting ones. So sit back and have a break. Here are the 5 Must-Read Artificial Intelligence articles of the past week.
5: MIT researchers developed tattoo inks that could act as health tracker
Researchers from MIT’s Media Lab have developed a tattoo ink that changes color according to varying glucose and pH levels inside the body. Hoping to turn the body into an “interactive display”, they developed a method for replacing tattoo inks with biosensors — liquids that change color in response to alterations in the
4: Microsoft is working to Make artificial Intelligence more human
Microsoft’s Project Mélange, housed in its India office, is using code-mixing (moving between multiple languages within a distinct conversation or even a single sentence) to teach AI how to have more human-like conversations. India is a perfect location for this work, because it’s a multi-lingual society in which many people are mixing languages regularly. Using big data analytics and machine learning in realtime, the company is enabling virtual assistants to understand various accents, contexts, languages, and nuances.
“This would definitely help to bridge the gap in the human-computer interaction. The fact that you can actually talk to a machine the way you would normally talk to your friend is something we still need to wrap our heads around.”
3: How Harley Davidson used predictive analytics to increases new yorks sales leads by 2930 %
It was winter in New York City and Asaf Jacobi’s Harley-Davidson dealership was selling one or two motorcycles a week. It wasn’t enough. Jacobi went for a long walk in Riverside Park and happened to bump into Or Shani, CEO of an AI firm, Adgorithms. After discussing Jacobi’s sales woes, Shani, suggested he try out Albert, Adgorit hm’s AI-driven marketing platform. Jacobi decided he’d give Albert a one-weekend audition. That weekend Jacobi sold 15 motorcycles. It was almost twice his all-time summer weekend sales record of eight. n the case of Harley-Davidson, the AI tool, Albert, drove in-store traffic by generating leads, defined as customers who express interest in speaking to a salesperson by filling out a form on the dealership’s website.
2: Experts predict when artificial intelligence will excel human performances
Rightly or wrongly, one industry after another is falling under the spell of AI, even though few have benefited significantly so far. That raises an interesting question: when will a machine do your job better than you?Today, we have an answer of sorts thanks to the work of Katja Grace at the Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford and a few pals. To find out, these guys asked the experts. They surveyed the world’s leading researchers in artificial intelligence by asking them when they think intelligent machines will better humans in a wide range of tasks.
“The experts predict that AI will outperform humans in the next 10 years in tasks such as translating languages (by 2024), writing high school essays (by 2026), and driving trucks (by 2027).”
1: We Need to Talk About the Power of AI to Manipulate Humans
In a nutshell: our tendency to become emotionally attached to chatbots could be exploited by companies seeking a profit. If you can get a user to think, “I want pizza delivered,” rather than asking the AI to buy vegetables to cook a cheaper, healthier meal, you will win. If you can get users addicted to spending 30 hours a week with a “perfect” AI companion that doesn’t resist abuse, rather than a real, complicated human, you will win. I saw over and over that an agent programmed to be neutral or subservient would cause people to escalate their negative behavior, and become more likely to behave the same toward humans.
