The Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe (CLAIRE), a research network was set up to facilitate collaboration between European labs. Toni Sekinah spoke to Professor Holger Hoos about Europe’s competitive advantage in AI, and how the network can help mitigate the negative effects of AI.
Small businesses and start-up can get in on the AI action that may seem to be the domain of the tech giants. This was the view of DataJavelin’s Philip Rooney who made this claim to a room full of entrepreneurs and small business owners at a workshop. Toni Sekinah reports.
Consumers are far more fickle, experimental and granular than ever. To move faster and predict their buying trends more accurately, businesses need to embrace new innovations in data analytics. Andrew Appel of IRI explains why.
Meha Nelson is the winner of the Women’s Entrepreneurship Award, one of three awards given to organisations and participants of the Open Data Institute’s Data Pitch accelerator. She told Toni Sekinah how GDPR affected the collection of data for Predina, the accident prediction company she co-founded, and how data is used to avoid collisions.
Artificial intelligence may not be well enough understood by executives for organisations to extract value from the new technology. The findings of a survey of business attitudes towards AI suggest this is the case. Toni Sekinah reports.
With innovative developments in artificial intelligence being announced constantly, a presentation on the fundamentals of AI is probably always useful. Toni Sekinah attended a talk and went back to the basics.
Debates and discussions about artificial intelligence can become mired in doom and gloom about colossal possible job losses and robot overlords. However, Kriti Sharma of AI for Good believes that a lot of good can come from using AI in the right places. In a TED Talk she told an audience what some of these use cases are and what we can do to avoid the very real and current effects of negative bias being amplified by automation. Toni Sekinah reports.
Artificial intelligence is a hot topic and people want to know more about it. This was evident by queues and crowds eager to learn more at the AI: More than Human exhibition at London’s Barbican Centre. Toni Sekinah reports.
Top researcher at Qlik Elif Tutuk believes that as the British public develops a greater understanding of artificial intelligence and its implications for society, those who are creating and programming AI need to have both a technology and human perspective to avoid blind spots. Toni Sekinah reports.
Roboticist Ayanna Howard recognises how bias can creep in when programming robots but says that the public has a role to play in keeping the companies that create these machines accountable. Toni Sekinah reports.
