Thought I would start this thread on AI,  there is an upcoming Microsoft Event Future Decoded which will explore some of the fields and interesting questions arsing -31 October to 1 November which will be streamed live if interested  in any of it  More details here https://www.futuredecoded.com/content/live  Information from the 2017 event also available https://news.microsoft.com/en-gb/2017/10/31/future-decoded-2017, also short video Decoded 2017 Highlights

 

I'll also include work Samsung has been doing in this area  with some details from the AI forum in September https://news.samsung.com/global/samsung-ai-forum-offers-a-roadmap-for-the-future-of-ai   https://research.samsung.com/artificial-intelligence

 

With regard to the latest recent  developments would say areas that have most caught my attention are Virtual Agents,   Automated Hardware, Optimised  Hardware, Biometrics (which can creat emore natural interactions between touch, speech  and body reactions)  Robotic processes,  Digital Twin Modelling, Cyber Defences, Empowering Workers (despite risks in some area of undoubted benefit in medical and legal circles). Undoubtably potential benefits which will assist us all in daily life.  some more detail https://blog.adext.com/en/artificial-intelligence-technologies-2018 Much scope with  Content Creation (for instance one tool Wibbitz can quickly create content from written documentation).   Emotion Recognition is certainly an interesting concept  which can have application in the entertainment and business arenas. We are all familiar with voice recognition but continually advancing.   Detail of 14 applications, some will be more familiar than others.  https://blog.adext.com/en/applications-of-artificial-intelligence

Certainly going to be a big market in the years ahead and samsung obviously getting in on the game.

 

I've noticed that Samsung AI can turn a portrait into a Talking Head!

The level of interest indicated by the fact that samsung has the third highest number of patents, though that does not necessarily tell the whole story of development.  https://www.sammobile.com/2019/06/07/samsung-ai-patents/

A few articles on Microchip technology  plus Cyborg Advances, looking at the Benefits and Pitfalls.    We often hear competing claims of an amazing future world versus  nightmarish or apocalyptic ones.   The reality may be that whilst it can offer great opportunities there are risks and we need apppropriate safeguards  to ensure the technology is our servant rather than master in the years ahead.

Medical practioners could easily access health details which would be an undoubted benefit in crucial situations but there are privacy and security implications.  Possibility for instance that employers could track activity away from the office, Coercion would be a bad thing as should be an opt in once individuals have considered the implications and we do need a lot more information.  Must be said though that  in the future could well be disadvantages for those not embracing the technology.   Enhancing the power of the brain would obviously be advantageous  but the danger of the unscrupulous being able to decode thoughts.    However in the future could well be disadvantages for those not embracing the technology.

Food smelt great, but sadly I wasn't one of the invitees to the meal there. And I'll admit: I kinda wanted Bot-Chef to go all crazy "Swedish Chef" lol.

You may have seen it reported that according to a study AI cam be better than Doctors in reading Breast Cancer scans.   However  should point out that the systems are  not better than the input of 2 radiologists which is common practice in Europe.  https://www.newscientist.com/article/2228752-ai-system-is-better-than-human-doctors-at-predicting-br... 

 

There was another report last year that suggested  could detect some childhood illnesses with more accuracy than comventional practioners .  https://www.newscientist.com/article/2193361-ai-can-diagnose-childhood-illnesses-better-than-some-do... 

 

Nonetheless  whilst AI will certainly be a major tool  going forward will surely complement  rather than replace conventional medicine.   There does remain some sceptism  amaong the public and the benefits need to be explained clearly.

 

This article goes over some of the factors :
