Machine Learning Boasts Big Promises, But Still Contains a Major Weakness

Recently, MIT researchers used machine learning—computer algorithms that automatically learn and get better over time—to predict that a number of COVID-19 vaccines currently in development may not adequately protect people of Black and Asian descent. In a study published in late November, the researchers say their machine learning models predicted the likelihood of vaccines properly […]

Four Steps Organizations Can Take To Establish AI Standards

Artificial intelligence (AI) is evolving rapidly. According to multinational professional services company, Accenture, businesses spent $306 billion USD on AI applications over the past three years. Despite the advancement of AI, there are currently no specific ethical regulations around the technology—though some governments, including the European Union, are working to establish them. Meanwhile, many organizations […]

Will Deep Learning Accelerate the Spread of IoT?

With over 55 million people infected with COVID-19 worldwide, hospitals are under enormous strain, and remote care is needed more than ever. To meet the growing demand, the European Commission has created an (EUR) $8 million project called “IntellIoT”. It is one of several projects that will use Internet of Things (IoT) technology to boost […]

How Can Organizations Ensure Their AI Systems Are Ethical?

Artificial intelligence (AI) applications are rapidly expanding, and so are the various threats they pose. From algorithms with embedded racial biases to “black box” systems that give humans no insight into an AI’s decision making process, it’s becoming increasingly clear that AI developers need to take steps to mitigate the risks. AI “Ethics-As-A-Service” Google plans […]

During a Crisis, Can AI Systems Be Designed Both Quickly and Ethically?

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to save thousands of lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. However,  rapid deployment of these systems, such as the use of apps that combine AI with blockchain to track COVID-19 cases, can pose substantial risks to privacy, according to a group of researchers who recently published their concerns in the […]

Showcasing Female STEM Leaders Can Attract More Women to Engineering

The artificial intelligence (AI) industry needs more women. Currently, under a quarter of AI professionals are female, and only 13.8% of AI research papers have been authored by women. Studies have shown that when women and minorities are involved in the development of AI, these systems are less biased. However, studies have also shown that […]
