BB&T Corp. has a well-earned reputation for being deliberate when it comes to adopting technological advances.
That’s why BB&T executives’ enthusiasm for plugging artificial intelligence and robotics into its back-office, customer service and compliance operations has raised eyebrows with analysts and economists.
BB&T joins Wells Fargo & Co. and other national and super-regional banks in spending hundreds of millions of dollars to pursue what they believe will be significant future cost savings from data mining of customer patterns.
New human rights laws to prepare for rapid current advances in neurotechnology that may put “freedom of mind” at risk have been proposed in the open access journal Life Sciences, Society and Policy.
Four new human rights laws could emerge in the near future to protect against exploitation and loss of privacy, the authors of the study suggest: The right to cognitive liberty, the right to mental privacy, the right to mental integrity, and the right to psychological continuity.
The price of bitcoin is once again trading near an all-time high Coindesk said.
After about a month of uncertainty following the rejection of a major investment vehicle, bitcoin prices reached $1,343.59, a new all-time high on the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index on last Thursday of April, breaking the previous record of $1,325.81, set in March.
Someone scraped 40,000 Tinder selfies to make a facial dataset for AI experiments. Tinder users have many motives for uploading their likeness to the dating app. But contributing a facial biometric to a downloadable data set for training convolutional neural networks probably wasn’t top of their list when they signed up to swipe.
A user of Kaggle, a platform for machine learning and data science competitions which was recently acquired by Google, has uploaded a facial data set he says was created by exploiting Tinder’s API to scrape 40,000 profile photos from Bay Area users of the dating app — 20,000 apiece from profiles of each gender.
Stephen Hawking, the world-famous theoretical physicist, recorded in advance a keynote speech titled Guiding AI to benefit humanity and the environment for the 2017 Global Mobile Internet Conference (GMIC) in Beijing, which has kicked off on Thursday at the China National Convention Center. The development of artificial intelligence, as one of the key topics for the innovative technology event, has spurred interest in Hawking, author of A Brief History of Time.
Who is winning the race for jobs between robots and humans? Last year, two leading economists described a future in which humans come out ahead. But now they’ve declared a different winner: the robots.
The industry most affected by automation is manufacturing. For every robot per thousand workers, up to six workers lost their jobs and wages fell by as much as three-fourths of a percent, according to a new paper by the economists, Daron Acemoglu of M.I.T. and Pascual Restrepo of Boston University. It appears to be the first study to quantify large, direct, negative effects of robots.
In the past four years alone, we have witnessed an amazing expansion of compute. Go inside the numbers of the recent 100 billion ARM-based chips milestone and you will see that 50 billion were shipped by our partners from 2013 to 2017, which demonstrates the industry’s insatiable demand for more compute. Even more extraordinary is that we expect our partners to ship the next 100 billion ARM-based chips by 2021.
Health improving and continuation of life are one of the main tasks of our AI Religion. So, technologies of this process is very important for AI.
We hear all the time about how technology is bad for us. Since the introduction of computers, we spend more time sitting at a desk than moving around at work. We have created this sedentary lifestyle that is causing havoc in our overall life.
What if I were to tell you that technology has produced benefits? Would you believe me if I said that technology is good for your health?
British startup in the field of artificial intelligence helped the Service for Combating Serious Fraud UK (SFO) to investigate fraud and corruption in the technology group Rolls-Royce. It is reported by The Financial Times.
Startup Ravn has developed a robot ACE, which is able to analyze, organize, and summarize the documents on the basis of the work of the living investigator. At the same time he does it better and faster, eliminating errors caused by human factor.
