"Machine Learning Causing Science Crisis" Machine-learning techniques used by thousands of scientists to analyse data are producing results that are misleading and often completely wrong. Dr Genevera Allen from Rice University in Houston said that the increased use of such systems was contributing to a “crisis in science”. More...
"10 Powerful Examples Of Artificial Intelligence In Use Today" While companies like Apple, Facebook and Tesla rollout ground-breaking updates and revolutionary changes to how we interact with machine-learning technology, many of us are still clueless on just how A.I. is being used today by businesses both big and small. How much of an effect will this technology have on our future lives and what other ways will it seep into day-to-day life? More.....
"Benefits and Risks of Artificial Intelligence" What sort of future do you want? Should we develop lethal autonomous weapons? What would you like to happen with job automation? What career advice would you give today’s kids? Do you prefer new jobs replacing the old ones, or a jobless society where everyone enjoys a life of leisure and machine-produced wealth? Further down the road, would you like us to create superintelligent life and spread it through our cosmos? Will we control intelligent machines or will they control us? Will intelligent machines replace us, coexist with us, or merge with us? What will it mean to be human in the age of artificial intelligence? What would you like it to mean, and how can we make the future be that way? More....
Tech Trends 2019 – Beyond the digital frontier by Deloitte
This PDF eBook provides six chapters. Deloitte spotlight emerging technology trends that, over the next 18 to 24 months, will likely offer new avenues for pursuing strategic ambitions. Three of them spotlight “top of the iceberg” technologies such as AI, intelligent interfaces, and experiential marketing. Three other chapters focusing on serverless computing, advanced connectivity, and DevSecOps, are more foundational and enabling, though no less critical to innovation and growth.
Those feeling overwhelmed by change may take some comfort in the fact that all of these trends are grounded in the nine macro forces. As in chaos theory, patterns and structures eventually emerge from perceived disorder. In our final chapter, we try to demystify the future of digital transformation by examining approaches for turning something seemingly nebulous and uncertain into a process that is measurable and knowable.
Privacy Under the Hood: Towards an International Data Privacy Framework for Autonomous Vehicles - Chelsey Colbert
This paper takes a prospective policy approach to the data privacy challenges of connected and autonomous vehicles.
It seeks to provide insight and direction to policymakers and industry by canvassing what sets AVs apart from current technology, such as mobile phones, and it looks at laws and policy approaches in three jurisdictions to highlight some areas of tension for consumer data privacy protection.
This online course will help you understand online security and protect your digital life, whether at home or work. Guided by Cory Doctorow, you will learn how to recognise threats that could harm you online and take steps to reduce the chances that they happen to you.
The course will frame your online safety in the context of the wider world, introducing concepts like malware, viruses, trojans, network security, cryptography, identity theft and risk management. The course was supported by the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Programme, is GCHQ Certified Training and IISP accredited.
