Artificial Intelligence


A robot operating with a popular internet-based artificial intelligence system consistently gravitates to men over women, white people over people of color, and jumps to conclusions about peoples’ jobs after a glance at their face. The work is believed to be the first to show that robots loaded with an accepted and widely used model …

Within years, the deployment of Artificial Intelligence, also known as AI, to execute human tasks is becoming rampant. To save much time and ensure productivity, humans seek other means of executing difficult tasks without wasting so much effort. In search of a credible solution, we resorted to the adoption and integration of AI technologies. Artificial …

How different would we think about artificial intelligence if AI pioneers Allen Newell and Herbert Simon had won support for the seemingly less hype-prone term of “complex information processing,” rather than “artificial intelligence,” which was ultimately adopted by the field? On the surface, this thought experiment is interesting because it asks if artificial intelligence is …

The “brain in a jar” is a thought experiment of a disembodied human brain living in a jar of sustenance. The thought experiment explores human conceptions of reality, mind, and consciousness. This article will explore a metaphysical argument against artificial intelligence on the grounds that a disembodied artificial intelligence, or a “brain” without a body, is incompatible with …

How many of you have read the book Frankenstein by Mary Shelley or watched the 1920 fictional play R.U.R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots) by Karel Capek? If you haven’t and you have an inclination towards Artificial Intelligence, you must. That’s where I see the roots of artificial intelligence, stepping out through creative brains. Perhaps, many industry …

Researchers surveyed 100 high-performing companies to determine how they successfully use machine learning technologies. The survey studied companies across sectors, looking at their data analytics and tech usage. Those seeing the biggest gains from digital technologies have strong governance, partnerships and data availability, as well as employees trained in machine intelligence. Which companies deploy machine …

Over the past five years, there has been an increase in research and development related to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in health sciences education in fields such as medicine, nursing and occupational therapy. AI-enhanced technologies have been shown to have educational value and offer flexibility for students. For example, learning scenarios can be …

Will the Metaverse(s) change humanity as we know it? Will the Metaverse(s) be the ultimate augmentation of human perception? Will it become an agora for our dreams (and, of course, nightmares), able to transform human perception entirely? Has it already started? Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg has unveiled several ambitious artificial-intelligence projects, describing AI as “the …

“Size isn’t everything” A multi-disciplinary team of researchers from Technische Universität Berlin recently created a neural ‘network’ that could one day surpass human brain power with a single neuron. Our brains have approximately 86 billion neurons. Combined, they make up one of the most advanced organic neural networks known to exist. Current state-of-the-art artificial intelligence systems attempt …

Business leaders see much in Artificial Intelligence, including new ways to save money, serve customers, and figure out what to build. What’s often tougher is deciding how to engage. That’s understandable, since getting into AI often raises questions about costs, data integrity, project length, and similar issues of planning and execution. For CIOs concerned with …
