          Enabling Technologies and the Underinvestment Problem      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Certain innovations—known as enabling technologies—provide the foundation for progress across a range of industries. Enabling technologies include mobile wireless, the laser, CT scanners, the microprocessor, artificial intelligence, and freight containerization. Such technologies drive wealth creation throughout the economy. However, the difficulties associated with monetizing this type of IP, which I explore in this article, mean that private enterprise tends to underinvest in new enabling technologies. Public policy needs to be more supportive, and firms need to be willing to support more blue-sky projects. As a nation, we are harvesting the fruits of old enabling technologies without investing sufficiently in new ones. We are eating our seed corn.

          HCII PhD Students Return from London Festival of Learning with 3 Awards      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Tue, 07/10/2018

Many experts from the learning sciences and educational technologies communities gathered at the University College London (UCL) Institute of Education in London last week for not one but three conferences during the London Festival of Learning.

The 2018 London Festival of Learning is the first time that the three separate education conferences -- the 13th International Conference of the Learning Sciences (ICLS), the 5th Annual ACM Conference on Learning @ Scale 2018 (L@S), and the 19th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education (AIED) -- have been held under the same roof. This trio of conferences created the unique opportunity for great minds from the overlapping fields of learning sciences, educational technologies and artificial intelligence to gather in the same place and collaborate to improve the future of education.

A large number of Human-Computer Interaction Institute faculty members and PhD students attended and enjoyed the festive learning atmosphere from June 22-30, 2018.

Two third-year Human-Computer Interaction PhD students received the great honor of being recognized for quality work by their scientific peers as they returned from the ICLS and AIED conferences with a total of three awards.

Michael Madaio received the Best Paper Award at the ICLS conference for the paper: A climate of support: a process-oriented analysis of the impact of rapport on peer tutoring M. Madaio, K. Peng, A. Ogan, J. Cassell.  This paper investigated the interpersonal closeness of students and tutors, the students’ belief in their ability to achieve their goals, and students’ prior knowledge, and the impact these three items have on the process and outcomes of peer tutoring.

Kenneth Holstein received the Best Student Paper Award at the ICLS conference for the paper: Informing the Design of Teacher Awareness Tools through Causal Alignment Analysis K. Holstein, B. McLaren, V. Aleven.  Linking real-time teacher awareness tools to students’ educational goals, this research iteratively refined Lumilo, a pair of smart glasses that can notify teachers of students that may benefit most from their help. 

Kenneth Holstein also won the Best Paper Award (1 of 2) at the AIED conference for the following paper: Student learning benefits of a mixed-reality teacher awareness tool in AI-enhanced classrooms K. Holstein, B. McLaren, V. Aleven.  This research showed that presenting teachers with real-time analytics about student learning, meta-cognition and behavior through a wearable pair of glasses had a positive impact on K-12 student learning. 

While it may seem that the three individual conferences would attract vastly different attendees, a lot of research in the field of learning is currently advancing in the area where the subjects of learning sciences, online environments and AI overlap. Therefore, co-locating the conferences helped in bringing these somewhat separate research communities closer together.

          The Google superstar Apple poached is now in charge of Siri (AAPL)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

John Giannandrea

  • Apple announced that it will combine its machine learning, artificial intelligence, and Siri groups.
  • They will report to John Giannandrea, who Apple poached from Google earlier this year. 

Apple announced on Tuesday that it combining many of its machine learning-focused teams under John Giannandrea, a Google veteran that the iPhone maker poached earlier this year.

Apple is moving its existing Siri and "Core ML" groups under him, a spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider. Giannandrea will lead a new "AI/ML" team at Apple. 

According to a bio added to Apple's leadership page on Tuesday, he reports to CEO Tim Cook and his title is "Chief of Machine Learning and AI Strategy." He is one of 16 executives who report directly to Cook. 

From his bio: 

"Prior to Apple, John spent 8 years at Google where he led the Machine Intelligence, Research, and Search teams. Before this he co-founded two technology companies, Tellme Networks and Metaweb Technologies. Earlier in his career John was a Senior Engineer at General Magic."

When Giannandrea unexpectedly stepped down at Google to join Apple, it was a big deal. He was the chief of search and artificial intelligence at Google during a period where the search giant embraced the technologies.

The New York Times said he was "perhaps the most eligible tech executive on the market" during the brief period before he announced he planned to work for Apple. 

Apple has another high-profile machine learning expert on staff, Carnegie Mellon professor Russ Salakhutdinov.

          Oracle Recognized as a Leader for Ninth Consecutive Time in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Press Release 

Oracle Placed in Furthest Overall Position for Completeness of Vision in the Entire Magic Quadrant 

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jul 10, 2018 

Oracle has been placed in the furthest overall position for its completeness of vision within the entire Magic Quadrant in Gartner’s 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce”1, which evaluated Oracle, including its Oracle Commerce Cloud. This is the ninth consecutive time that Oracle has been named a Leader in this Magic Quadrant. Oracle believes that its Leader position underscores its continued innovation in developing a modern, end-to-end digital commerce solution. 

Gartner positions vendors within a particular quadrant based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision. According to Gartner, “In this fast-paced digital world, change comes quickly. This makes it paramount for vendors to understand not only the emerging market, but their clients' specific needs when it comes to offering strategy and business models. Likewise, innovation is imperative. Innovative vendors that demonstrate an understanding of the market in their offering (product) strategies and emerging business models exhibit Completeness of Vision. As a result, market understanding, offering (product) strategy, business model and innovation are all highly weighted criteria.” 

This Gartner Magic Quadrant is a companion of Gartner’s “Critical Capabilities for Digital Commerce”2, in which Oracle Commerce Cloud received the highest score for Fast, Nimble Implementations use case and Oracle Commerce received the highest score for the Robust / Global Implementations use case. Oracle Commerce Cloud also scored 4.13 out of 5 for the Modular, Flexible Implementations use case. 

“We are proud to be named a Leader again in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce and to receive such scores for Oracle Commerce Cloud in the Critical Capabilities document. We believe it demonstrates our unrelenting dedication to innovation in digital commerce and our investment and momentum in the cloud,” said Ken Volpe, senior vice president, product development, Oracle. “We know it is critical for commerce companies to provide a seamless, end-to-end omnichannel experience to both consumers and business buyers. Oracle continues to invest in and develop the latest technology required for success in the next era of commerce, such as artificial intelligence (AI), real-time analytics, and emerging sources of data, to offer agile, scalable and data-driven digital commerce solutions that help businesses drive sales, customer loyalty and growth.” 

Part of the Oracle Customer Experience (CX) Cloud, Oracle Commerce Cloud is the industry’s only unified enterprise-grade B2C and B2B commerce platform built on modern cloud architecture and deep industry expertise. With a proven heritage for performance, scalability and flexibility, Oracle Commerce Cloud empowers online businesses to take advantage of AI-powered capabilities and innovative personalization tools to turn static journeys into smart ones by delivering targeted product and content that is most relevant to the shopper’s immediate context. Recommendations utilize account data, shopper third-party data and real-time inputs to optimize outcomes and create superior consumer experiences for both first time and known shoppers to drive repeat visits, loyalty and revenue. 

Part of Oracle Cloud Applications, Oracle Customer Experience (CX) Cloud Suite empowers organizations to take a smarter approach to customer experience management and business transformation initiatives. By providing a trusted business platform that connects data, experiences, and outcomes, Oracle CX Cloud Suite helps customers reduce IT complexity, deliver innovative customer experiences, and achieve predictable and tangible business results. 

Gartner positions vendors within a particular quadrant based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision. It says its evaluation criteria “emphasize the ability to develop, deploy and support a unique and compelling customer experience. They stress migration to more flexible and nimble implementation that reduces both time to market and TCO. They stress the vendor's ability to attract and develop an ecosystem of technology and service provider partners that add value to its platform.”

O’Reillys recent set of Strata Data conferences showcased how AI technologies are changing what companies can do with data across a wide range of industries. Here are four themes from Strata Data that universally apply across various industries and company sizes.

1. Both humans and machines are needed to deliver the best result.

Pinterest's VP of Engineering, Li Wan, shared the challenges and opportunities of creating a visual discovery engine. Wan described the challenges with naming an image while also understanding what’s in it and the style behind the image. Correctly defining image attributes is crucial for delivering a successful user experience. For example, a living room has multiple items in it. The company uses computer vision technology to break down the image, understand the objects within the picture and recommend similar things for you to consider.

Since there are 100 billion pins in the database, Pinterest can’t rank every pin for every user in real time. To accomplish this herculean feat, Pinterest uses a graph-based recommendation engine that filters the candidate recommendations for every user. It uses machine models to predict the engagement level of a Pinterest user to a pin and the relevance of pin for a user. It sounds like a simple classification problem, but the system not only has to detect an item, such as a chair, within millions of images. Additionally, the AI system has to understand the style of the object, requiring Pinterest to create feature vectors to help recommend an image based on a user’s style. Where does the human element come in? Data specialists clean, validate and label the data.

          Former Google heavy-hitter now in charge of getting Apple back in the AI game      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
It's become a bit of conventional wisdom that Apple lags its peers in tech when it comes to AI. That products like Siri may have been released early enough to give Apple what should have been a strong lead, but similar offerings from companies like Google and Amazon are an order of magnitude more useful than Apple's tools -- and getting better every day. We'll save the "why" of all that, the privacy issues and learning about users in a comprehensive way over time, for another post. What's ironic, though, is that the guy now tasked with helping change this reality at Apple, John Giannandrea, used to be in charge of machine intelligence, research and search teams at Google, of all places. Giannandrea spent eight years there, and during his stint he pushed to make AI more of a centerpiece in products like Gmail and Google Assistant. And it's Giannandrea who now leads a new unit at Apple -- a unit that has combined the company's AI and machine learning efforts, the company has confirmed. You could argue that Apple had no choice, that it needed someone with Giannandrea's chops to get itself back where it needs to be in the AI game. According to his official Apple bio, his title is the company's Chief of Machine Learning and AI Strategy, and he reports directly to CEO Tim Cook. "John joined Apple in 2018 and oversees the strategy for Artificial Intelligence and machine learning across the company and development of Core ML and Siri technologies," his bio reads. Before his time at Google, Giannandrea co-founded two tech companies, Tellme Networks and Metaweb Technologies. And before that he was a senior engineer at General Magic. How much headway he can make within the context of the general philosophy at Apple around data and user privacy -- it will be interesting to see if all of that can coexist successfully. Apple's directives right from the top mean it hasn't collected mountains of data on users the way other companies have, to which machine learning and algorithms can be applied and extract the same level of value from the way you see at a company like Google. The storyline that's emerged in the tech press in the wake of Apple making Giannandrea's new mandate clear is that this is Apple basically making up for lost time. TechCrunch, for example, points to Apple's digital assistant for a bit of context. "The haphazard way that Siri has lurched forward has got to get smoothed out if Apple is going to make a huge play for improvements in the same way that it’s doing with Maps. I think at some point there was a realization that doing (AI/machine learning) heavy lifting with the additional load of maintaining user data privacy was enough to carry without having to also maintain several different stacks for its (machine learning) tools."

HSBC is strengthening its approach to managing financial crime risk by piloting an artificial intelligence initiative which removes false leads when monitoring payment transactions, according to Josh Bottomley, global head of digital at the group. Digital experts work alongside compliance at HSBC, he said. "HSBC is already piloting AI to remove false leads when monitoring millions of global payments transactions, which has given our teams more time to look into activity that does need further investigation, strengthening our approach to managing financial crime risk," he told Thomson Reuters Regulatory Intelligence. In this way, new technology such as AI and machine learning presents opportunities for HSBC to innovate and become far more effective at detecting financial crime, he said.

The Tech Behind the 2018 FIFA World Cup phil.goldstein_6191 Tue, 07/10/2018 - 12:17

There have been several surprising turns at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, including defending champion Germany’s failure to make it out of the group stage, England’s run to the semifinals, and relatively early exits from soccer powerhouses like Brazil, Portugal and Spain. What’s not surprising is that technology has been a key component of the world’s most-watched sporting event.

For the first time ever at a World Cup, FIFA has instituted a video assistant referee (VAR) system to help support the match referee on key decisions and ensure that calls are made correctly. The introduction of VAR attracted a great deal of controversy before the tournament started in June but has been generally seen as a positive move for the World Cup (though there has been some dissent).

Meanwhile, Fox Sports, the U.S. broadcaster for the World Cup, partnered with IBM to use the tech giant’s Watson artificial intelligence platform to quickly classify, edit and access match highlights in near real time.

The developments suggest that, for a tournament that began in 1930, the fast-paced technology world is weaving its way into the beautiful game in ways unlike ever before.

VAR Helps Refs Make the Right Calls

Although the VAR system is brand new at the World Cup, other sports have used video review for years. How does it work for FIFA?

As the Independent reports, there are 13 officials who can be chosen as the VAR and all of them sit in a video control room in Moscow, with one chosen for each game (along with three assistants).

A lot of tech goes into the VAR system. As Digital Trends reports:

The VAR reviews footage from the numerous cameras stationed around the field; according to FIFA, the video assistant referee team has access to 33 broadcast cameras, eight of which are super slow-motion and four of which are ultra slow-motion cameras. There are ultra high-definition (UHD) cameras as well.

The VAR team watches the entire match, and if they see something amiss they can alert the referee. Likewise, if the on-field ref thinks something is wrong he can contact the VAR operation room. Ultimately though, the VAR team only serves an advisory role and the final decision rests with the match referee.

What does VAR help review? There are four main categories, according to FIFA:

  • Goals: The system can be used to check if the ball crossed the goal line, but also if an infringement before the ball went in would have stopped a goal from being awarded.
  • Penalties: VAR can determine if a penalty should have been awarded when it wasn’t, and also the reverse: if the referee mistakenly awarded a penalty for a foul inside the penalty box.
  • Red cards: VAR can help determine if a red card should be awarded to a player after a foul (players who receive red cards are forced to leave the field and the team must continue one player short).
  • Mistaken identity: This part of the VAR system helps refs determine if the wrong player has been disciplined for a foul.

As the Telegraph notes, VAR has had an impact on this year’s tournament: “The system has already been used in the World Cup group stages and Round of 16 to correct and clarify decisions, including Diego Costa’s first goal against Portugal, France’s penalty against Australia as well as Sweden’s penalty against South Korea.”

Fox Teams with IBM’s AI for World Cup Highlights

In June, IBM announced a partnership with Fox Sports for the broadcaster to use IBM Watson Media’s AI video technology and IBM iX’s user experience technology. The goal is to allow Fox to streamline production workflows so that it can quickly identify, edit and deliver match highlights essentially as they are happening. That enables Fox to create more engaging highlight reels for World Cup fans.

The 2014 World Cup attracted 3.2 billion viewers on TV and an estimated 280 million online viewers. Overall, 98,087 hours of video footage was broadcasted. To sift through a similar amount of footage for the 2018 World Cup requires a significant amount of processing power.

“We are delighted to be working with IBM, a leader in the technology space, to help enhance fan experiences and engagement,” Sarah Tourville, senior vice president of sports brand activations at Fox Sports, says in the statement. “Our collaboration affords us an opportunity to utilize their technology across multiple properties, helping to drive engagement for our tentpole events in non-traditional ways.”

Fox and IBM are partnering to create what they call The Highlight Machine, an interactive experience that allows fans to browse FIFA’s archive and create custom highlights from both the historic and 2018 tournament footage.

According to Engadget, Fox says there are 300 archived matches that Watson is capable of analyzing, which viewers filter by World Cup year, team, player, game, play type or any combination of these.

Fans are also able to view and filter highlights by team, player, time frame and type of gameplay, such as penalty kicks and goals. “To extend the post-match conversation on social media, viewers can save, favorite and share highlight reels as well as catch up on games by speedwatching critical, automatically generated clips,” Fox and IBM say in the statement.

          Apple Updates Leadership Page to Include New AI Chief John Giannandrea      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Apple today updated its Apple Leadership page to include John Giannandrea, who now serves as Apple's Chief of Machine Learning and AI Strategy.

Apple hired Giannandrea back in April, stealing him away from Google where he ran the search and artificial intelligence unit.


Giannandrea is leading Apple's AI and machine learning teams, reporting directly to Apple CEO Tim Cook. He has taken over leadership of Siri, which was previously overseen by software engineering chief Craig Federighi.

Apple told TechCrunch that it is combining its Core ML and Siri teams under Giannandrea. The structure of the two teams will remain intact, but both will now answer to Giannandrea.

Under his leadership, Apple will continue to build its AI/ML teams, says TechCrunch, focusing on general computation in the cloud alongside data-sensitive on-device computations.

Giannandrea spent eight years at Google before joining Apple, and before that, he founded Tellme Networks and Metaweb Technologies.

Apple's hiring of Giannandrea in April came amid ongoing criticism of Siri, which many have claimed has serious shortcomings in comparison to AI offerings from companies like Microsoft, Amazon, and Google due to Apple's focus on privacy.

In 2018, Apple is improving Siri through a new Siri Shortcuts feature that's coming in iOS 12, which is designed to let users create multi-step tasks using both first and third-party apps that can be activated through Siri.

          The Google superstar Apple poached is now in charge of Siri (AAPL)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

John Giannandrea

  • Apple announced that it will combine its machine learning, artificial intelligence, and Siri groups.
  • They will report to John Giannandrea, who Apple poached from Google earlier this year. 

Apple announced on Tuesday that it combining many of its machine learning-focused teams under John Giannandrea, a Google veteran that the iPhone maker poached earlier this year.

Apple is moving its existing Siri and "Core ML" groups under him, a spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider. Giannandrea will lead a new "AI/ML" team at Apple. 

According to a bio added to Apple's leadership page on Tuesday, he reports to CEO Tim Cook and his title is "Chief of Machine Learning and AI Strategy." He is one of 16 executives who report directly to Cook. 

From his bio: 

"Prior to Apple, John spent 8 years at Google where he led the Machine Intelligence, Research, and Search teams. Before this he co-founded two technology companies, Tellme Networks and Metaweb Technologies. Earlier in his career John was a Senior Engineer at General Magic."

When Giannandrea unexpectedly stepped down at Google to join Apple, it was a big deal. He was the chief of search and artificial intelligence at Google during a period where the search giant embraced the technologies.

The New York Times said he was "perhaps the most eligible tech executive on the market" during the brief period before he announced he planned to work for Apple. 

Apple has another high-profile machine learning expert on staff, Carnegie Mellon professor Russ Salakhutdinov.

Jeffrey M. Lipshaw (Suffolk University Law School) has posted The Persistence of 'Dumb' Contracts on SSRN.  Here is the abstract: “Smart contracts” are a hot topic. Presently, smart contracts mostly consist as evidence of property, like crypto-currencies or mortgages, created and/or transferred on blockchain technology. This is an exploration of the theoretical possibilities of artificial intelligence in a far broader range of complex and heretofore negotiated transactions that occur over time. My goal is to understand what it means to make a contract smarter, i.e. to delegate more and more of the creation, performance, and disposition of legally binding transactions to machine thinking. Moreover, I want to do so from the perspective of one who is neither a true believer in the purported technological singularity to come nor a digital Luddite.There are two primary themes. First, the extent to which complex transactions occurring over time…

          Buyers beware!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I have a very close friend who had a long and quite successful career in retail. She spent many years as the buyer for designer ready-to-wear for N-M – a high-pressure, high-stakes, high-visibility job that she loved. She’s now retired, but she logged millions of miles jetting from one Fashion Week to the next -  Paris. Milan. NYC. She was on a first name basis with household-word designers and she remains a dedicated follower of fashion, even though she’s now out of the game, other than as a spectator..

So the other day, when I saw an article in the NY Times on Artificial Intelligence’s incursion into the fashion biz, Joyce was the first person I thought of. I sailed a link to the story off to her. A nano-second later, I got a response: “Love this!!!”

We didn’t get into detail on why she loved it. Does she think it will help buyers? Put them out of their misery? Does she wish that she’d had an AI assistant when she was in the throes of her buying “sprees”? Is she hearkening back to an early stage in her career, when she actually did design work for a sweater company?

One of the best-selling T-shirts for the Indian e-commerce site Myntra is an olive, blue and yellow colorblocked design. It was conceived not by a human but by a computer algorithm — or rather two algorithms.

The first algorithm generated random images that it tried to pass off as clothing. The second had to distinguish between those images and clothes in Myntra’s inventory. Through a long game of one-upmanship, the first algorithm got better at producing images that resembled clothing, and the second got better at determining whether they were like — but not identical to — actual products.

This back and forth, an example of artificial intelligence at work, created designs whose sales are now “growing at 100 percent,” said Ananth Narayanan, the company’s chief executive. “It’s working.”

The fashion industry illustrates how machines can intrude even on workers known more for their creativity than for cold empirical judgments. Among those directly affected will be the buyers and merchandise planners who decide which dresses, tops and pants should populate their stores’ inventory.(Source: NY Times)

The AI guys, of course, keep assuring us that AI will only partially automate jobs like clothing design and buying. It will augment the way human works, make them better at their jobs.

Maybe for a while, but as AI gets smarter and smarter – and there’s an underlying AI technology called Machine Learning that helps make AI smarter and smarter as it goes along – the human role will inevitably diminish further and maybe even disappear.

Again, the counterargument arises: we’ll need more human intermediaries between companies and consumers. AI may make  all the decisions about what’s going into your closet, but there’ll be a human being to check on whether you really do like that yellow, blue and olive color-blocked shirt, a human being devoted to keeping you brand-loyal and spending away.

The same day I spotted this Times article, I caught a headline somewhere that wasn’t quite click-baity enough for the mood or the moment, but it was something along the lines of when AI and robots take all those jobs away, there’ll always be the need for home healthcare attendants to see to aging Baby Boomers.

Trouble is, of course, two-fold.

One, these jobs don’t pay as well as the skilled blue-, pink-, and white-collar jobs they’ll replace. And two, what make anyone think that robots won’t be taking care of a ton of what healthcare attendants do.

I suppose I’ll see for myself one of these days. But if I don’t recognize the difference between a human wiping the drool off my chin and a robot, what difference will it make anyway?

Sigh.

Glad that I won’t live to see the full culmination of the brave new world.

Meanwhile, buyers beware. AI’s coming for you, and it’s coming fast.

In the current technology landscape, nothing elicits quite as much curiosity and excitement as artificial intelligence (AI). And we are only beginning to see the potential benefits of AI applications within the enterprise.

The growth of AI in the enterprise, however, has been hampered because data scientists too often have limited access to the relevant data they need to build effective AI models. These data specialists are frequently forced rely solely on a few known sources, like existing data warehouses, rather than being able to tap into all the real-time, real-life data they need. In addition, many companies have great difficulty efficiently and affordably determining the business context and quality of massive amounts of data instantly. Given these difficulties, it’s easy to understand some of the historical barriers to AI acceleration and adoption.

          New Apple AI chief to oversee Siri, Machine Learning      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

San Francisco: Revealing its future plans, Apple has formally announced to make ex-Google executive John Giannandrea its Chief of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Strategy.

Reporting to CEO Tim Cook, Giannandrea who joined Apple in April will be in charge of Apple's ML division, Siri and the Core ML team, the company updating its executive leadership page, said.

Giannandrea will look after further development of Core ML and Siri technologies. With Core ML, third-party developers can integrate trained ML models into their apps.

Prior to Apple, Giannandrea spent eight years at Google where he led the Machine Intelligence, Research and Search teams. Before it, he co-founded two technology companies - Tellme Networks and Metaweb Technologies.

At Google, Giannandrea took the role of Senior Vice President of Engineering from Amit Singhal in early 2016, signalling Google's emphasis on weaving ML and AI into its Search engine.

According to media reports, Apple lags behind from Google and Amazon in key AI areas like Natural language Processing (NLP) and computer vision needed to power voice assistant features in Siri.

Apple has invested in Siri and HomeKit to compete with Google Home and Alexa-based smart home systems.

In 2017, Apple added an AI chip called Neural Engine to the A11 Bionic for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X to work with the Image Signal Processor (ISP).

Apple has posted several job openings for AI/ML engineers at its different offices globally.

          The reason why only a quarter of India's engineering graduates are employable      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The singular expectation from university education is guaranteed employability and, thus, a return on investment. When this fails to happen, it is because the quality of education does not respond to market demand.

Drawing on data from 60,000 graduates pan-India, an employability solutions company noted that around 47 percent of Indian graduates are unemployable. According to a McKinsey report, only a quarter of Indian engineers are employable. Other studies put it at a much lower figure and even as low as five percent. These are alarming statistics because they would significantly and negatively impact India's demographic dividend.

In the meantime, technology has emerged as a game-changer. Breakthroughs in robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, 3D printing, driverless vehicles, for example, have triggered a revolution that is expected to transform everyday human experience.

Take robotic surgery, for instance. The surgeon can now carry out the most complex procedures with far greater skill, precision and dexterity. Robotics, similarly, is being used in the construction industry and it is argued that with robotic systems, output would be much more consistent accompanied by higher quality, speed and efficiency. In the military, it is estimated that the US armed forces could have more robots on the battlefield than real soldiers by 2025. Not only would these robots have deadly capability but, more importantly, their use would dramatically reduce loss of life among American soldiers in combat zones.

In a similar fashion, 3D printing is already impacting manufacturing, the production of medical devices, the fashion industry, architecture and the automobile industry. The dramatic impact that the technology revolution is having and would continue to have is an indisputable fact of contemporary life.

This would suggest that in 4-5 years time, when a student graduates, the job the person would do is yet to be created. For educators, this would prove to be a nightmare, unless they gear students up to anticipate uncertainty and have the ability to respond to it.

This is not true of Indian education, however, because of its steadfast refusal to evolve and embrace new challenges and prepare for a rapidly changing world. Unless it does so, education would not lead to employability or job creation through entrepreneurship.

What we know as facts are, first, that the rapid breakthroughs in technology would result in several current jobs being done by machines. We are already seeing this in multiple fields, some of which we interact with in our daily lives. Many supermarkets, for instance, have introduced pay machines and dispensed with manual bill generation and payment counters handled by staff. With the increasing use of credit cards, pay-and-go would displace more persons from other current jobs in many retail outlets. This would be equally true of airline and other modes of long-distance travel where boarding passes can now be printed without having to visit the counters. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that around one-third of all jobs across 46 nations would be displaced by 2030.

Second, how we negotiate our relationship with technology would be critical to our well-being. At present, there is fear of, and even resistance to, technology because of credible apprehensions about loss of jobs. We need to recognise that technology is only a tool meant to assist us and to improve overall performance and productivity. Rather than a threat, it is meant to complement our core capabilities and free us from drudge work that machines might do better and more efficiently.

Even engineers, architects and doctors need to rethink their role, as machines would now replace what they did. But then again, there are several other areas where technology would be found wanting. Consequently, there would be increasing demand for new skills, as the work place would itself be dramatically transformed.

The McKinsey report estimates that automation could force anywhere between 75 million to 375 million into new jobs by 2030. This is borne out by other studies as well that argue that global, virtual teams would replace the current work place environment because project teams would now be geographically dispersed. PricewaterhouseCoopers projects this new style of working to increase by 50 percent by 2020 resulting in a potential shortfall of 85 million qualified workers globally by 2020.

Third, this suggests that education needs to build the soft human skills that Artificial Intelligence cannot emulate. What we teach, consequently, needs to be rethought. While strong technical knowledge is important, it is equally important that students master intercultural communication and are in a position to perform in geographically dispersed virtual environments. Team building, leadership, crisis and conflict management, and dealing with people would be the key tipping points in deciding who is employable and who may be displaced.

Reimagining employability is an imperative for India but its success is entirely dependent on how we redesign our approach to education. What we require is close collaboration between the corporate sector and educational institutions to create the work force of the future.

ARTHUR UPDATE: “Admiral Mike Rogers is working with the Alliance”

by Adam Riva
July 10, 2018



Our source within the Alliance, who we have been calling Arthur, recently briefed us on who he believes some of the sealed indictments are for, where he believes these 40,000+ individuals will be imprisoned once the indictments are unsealed, his suspicions that Admiral Michael Rogers is near the top of the organization known as the Star State, Obama’s two plants inside the NSA and the DOJ, how Jeff Sessions has been rewriting the UCMJ to more efficiently deal with politicians who are guilty of treason, and upcoming legislation to legally mandate truthful reporting in the news media.

Background

If this is your first time visiting our site, we have previously shared seven other briefings from this source which you can view at the following links:

Arthur Update: “We are Discussing Continuity Plans” [7/2/2018]
Arthur Update: Rumor: “Indictments Unsealed a Month Before the Midterm Election”
Alliance Insider: “Artificial Intelligence is Our Biggest Adversary” [3/3/2018]
Alliance Insider: “There Will Be No Civilian Trials for the Illuminati” [2/18/2018]
Alliance Insider: “We’re Going to See a New Gold-Backed Currency Worldwide” [12/14/2017]
Alliance Insider: “Coup in Stage 4 of 5” [12/6/2017]

I have also posted a video Q&A where I answer your questions regarding Arthur, so if you have questions please check that out first and hopefully it will provide you with the answers you are looking for.

The following is a transcript of Arthur’s briefing with me.



Arthur: “Remember I told you there was a military coup that began in June of 2015? Admiral Mike Rodgers told Obama, “Go f— yourself. We are not relinquishing ten of our aircraft carriers to NATO.” He was director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and he became director of the NSA after the Snowden leaks. Mike Rodgers effectively took Obama out and put Trump in, in a manner of speaking.

Admiral Rodgers got a hold of Trump and said, “Look, you have to step in as president.” The organization I told you about, the Star State, the very small group where you have to swear to defend the Constitution, with mostly Christians and patriots — this very small group, I have a sneaking suspicion that Admiral Rogers might be the head of it.

So Rodgers says to Trump, “Look, the SEAL Teams, special forces, dark ops, and the Green Berets have your back. We’ll post a list of the 6,782 people that should die if anything happens to you if you become president.”

Remember I said all of this last year? The list we’re talking about includes the Illuminati, Bilderberg, Trilateral Commission, G8, the Satanists.

He said, “We’ll kill all of them if they lay a finger on you. We want you to run for president.” Trump said, “Alright, let’s see what I can do.” And of course he only spent his money on the campaign. He was self-funded so the Dark State couldn’t stop him.

Obama got wind of the Star State contacting Trump. Obama knew the military coup was going on. So Obama said, “I’ll just get all of the information, I’ll get Mueller, Rosenstein, I’ll get the skunks, I’ll wipe Trump off the face of the Earth. One problem: Mike Rodgers shuts down Obama’s access from the White House to the NSA. He shut it down. If he can’t get to the NSA, what’s he going to do?

Obama has a plant in the NSA. He has another plant in the DOJ. One of them is Mr. Or and the other is Mrs. Or. A Husband and wife team.

He says, “You keep feeding Mrs. Or the information that she wants from the DOJ and I’ll get rid of this son of a b— Trump.” They discovered the back channel. Direct order from Obama: “He gets executed for treason, high crimes against the government, initiating a military coup, sedition. He gets the guillotine, beheaded, it’s over.”

Remember I told you that if you have a 200 foot anaconda in the swamp that you want to remove, you have to cut off it’s food source?

When this investigation started with Trump’s presidency, they had nothing. Mostly. They didn’t know how corrupt Mueller was, Rosenstein, Imran Awan, Jeffrey Emil [not sure of this name], other players, other CEOs. And it builds. Everyone is so worried about Mueller. Trump can put Mueller in prison with one phone call.

Mueller covered Whitey Bulger who was the FBI informant contact in Boston for 20 years. He let Whitey Bulger out after he knew he was a criminal murderer. And the five men that were wrongfully imprisoned for the crimes that Bulger committed, Mueller left them in prison for five more years.

Admiral Mike Rodgers is working with the Alliance and he will be known as one of the saviors of the United States.

So here is what Sessions has been up to. He decides to stand back and take all the heat, to be a lightning rod, to get called all the names, all the while he is rewriting the Uniform Code of Military Justice to deal with politicians who commit treason and sedition.

Trump has been going along with all of this and has been allowing Sessions to look useless. Trump signed three executive orders regarding national security threats on the 21st, 23rd, and 27th, I believe. I told you about this.

You need to understand something. If there are three national security threats that haven’t been answered in 90 days or addressed by Congress or Senate, it takes one signature of one man on Earth to turn America into Martial Law. We’re passed the 90 day hurdle.

Now, regarding all of these Walmarts that are being converted and all of the new FEMA camps… Where are you going to put over 40,000 of the world’s worst criminals once the indictments are unsealed? You can’t fit them all in GTMO even though it’s being expanded.”

I was just reading that the Alliance has plans to basically reclaim all of the stolen assets and the trillions of dollars that have been funneled into Deep State programs and create a debt jubilee on the other side of this mess. The Alliance wants to return every penny to the people. This was coming from some of the highest sources that I follow.

Arthur: “With the money that Obama stole in his presidency, every household in America could have gotten $250,000. Where did the money go?”

But you haven’t heard anything about the Alliance’s plans to return the stolen funds back to the American people?

Arthur: “No. I don’t know if it can be. That might just be a dream. I don’t know one way or the other.

I don’t know how far this is going to go. Are we going to take apart the Federal Reserve? Are we going to take apart the Internal Revenue Service? Are we going back on the Gold Standard? Are we going to take out of existence the Artificial Person that is represented by your name in capital letters on all of your legal documents which gets traded on the Stock Exchange?”

You’re speaking about Maritime Admiralty Law. The Artificial Person is created the moment the Natural Person is born and it is represented by the birth certificate.

Arthur: “So my next question is, if we take out the Illuminati, is there any money owed to anybody? And who’s the man that has been saying to invest in silver for months?

First was Net Neutrality. What you’ll see next is Trump passing legislation around truthful reporting in the media. I think you’re going to see Patty Hearst, Bernadine Dohrn, and Billy Ayers try to commit terrorism again. They might be blocked, they might even be in the Sealed Indictments. Bill Clinton was the one who pardoned Patty Hearst. I think they’re going to try more of the blood rituals and virgin sacrifices with school shootings. I think you’re going to see total chaos. Then Trump is going to say, “We’re going to Martial Law. Thank you.”

Here’s the craziest part. I remember back in 2015 all of the conspiracy theories started circulating regarding dozens or hundreds of mysterious Walmart closures. People saw FEMA trucks outside, unmarked deliveries, leaked pictures of strange remodeling on the interior. I would be surprised if after all that, they were used for housing the Deep State. I mean what a twist of irony.

Arthur: “Well, you give me a better hypothesis and I’ll change my mind. I know that you think I oversimplify things. It’s an IO’s way of staying alive.”

          Representation Learning with Contrastive Predictive Coding. (arXiv:1807.03748v1 [cs.LG])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Aaron van den Oord, Yazhe Li, Oriol Vinyals

While supervised learning has enabled great progress in many applications, unsupervised learning has not seen such widespread adoption, and remains an important and challenging endeavor for artificial intelligence. In this work, we propose a universal unsupervised learning approach to extract useful representations from high-dimensional data, which we call Contrastive Predictive Coding. The key insight of our model is to learn such representations by predicting the future in latent space by using powerful autoregressive models. We use a probabilistic contrastive loss which induces the latent space to capture information that is maximally useful to predict future samples. It also makes the model tractable by using negative sampling. While most prior work has focused on evaluating representations for a particular modality, we demonstrate that our approach is able to learn useful representations achieving strong performance on four distinct domains: speech, images, text and reinforcement learning in 3D environments.

          Agent-Mediated Social Choice. (arXiv:1806.07199v2 [cs.AI] UPDATED)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Umberto Grandi

Direct democracy is often proposed as a possible solution to the 21st-century problems of democracy. However, this suggestion clashes with the size and complexity of 21st-century societies, entailing an excessive cognitive burden on voters, who would have to submit informed opinions on an excessive number of issues. In this paper I argue for the development of voting avatars, autonomous agents debating and voting on behalf of each citizen. Theoretical research from artificial intelligence, and in particular multiagent systems and computational social choice, proposes 21st-century techniques for this purpose, from the compact representation of a voter's preferences and values, to the development of voting procedures for autonomous agents use only.

Jeffrey M. Lipshaw (Suffolk University Law School) has posted The Persistence of 'Dumb' Contracts on SSRN.  Here is the abstract: “Smart contracts” are a hot topic. Presently, smart contracts mostly consist as evidence of property, like crypto-currencies or mortgages, created and/or transferred on blockchain technology. This is an exploration of the theoretical possibilities of artificial intelligence in a far broader range of complex and heretofore negotiated transactions that occur over time. My goal is to understand what it means to make a contract smarter, i.e. to delegate more and more of the creation, performance, and disposition of legally binding transactions to machine thinking. Moreover, I want to do so from the perspective of one who is neither a true believer in the purported technological singularity to come nor a digital Luddite.There are two primary themes. First, the extent to which complex transactions occurring over time…

          Samsung Galaxy Watch Name Spotted in Trademark Filing, Said to Debut With Bixby Integration      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The 'Galaxy Watch' will be the next smartwatch model by Samsung, if an official trademark filing with the Korean Intellectual Property Office is to be believed. A previous rumour revealed the new moniker and claimed that the South Korean giant will use the new name for the Gear S3 successor that was previously in the headlines as the Gear S4. It was also expected to run Wear OS, instead of Samsung's own Tizen operating system. Now, it has also been reported that the next generation Samsung wearable will come with Bixby support. The company is already in plans to uplift its voice assistant to compete against the likes of Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple's Siri, and it is now said that Bixby 2.0 will be deployed on the Galaxy Watch to deliver an enhanced experience. The same Bixby version will notably be a part of the Galaxy Note 9 that is expected to debut at the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 9 alongside the Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Tab S4.

As per the listing on the official Korean Intellectual Property Office website, Samsung has patented the Galaxy Watch moniker. An image confirming the new name has also been published alongside the patent listing. Instead of opting for the Gear branding, the preference for the 'Galaxy' brand for the next smartwatch model is thought to be because it will run Google's Wear OS against Samsung's proprietary Tizen OS that was powering the last three iterations of the Gear-Series models.

In addition to the revelation of the Galaxy Watch moniker, it has now been rumoured that the new Samsung smartwatch will be powered by Bixby voice assistant. SamMobile reports that the new model will come preloaded with Bixby. It is said to be accessible to users either through the home button or using the "Hi Bixby" voice command. Further, the integration on the Galaxy Watch is reported to be the same Bixby 2.0 that is debuting on the Galaxy Note 9. We can, therefore, expect some enhanced natural language processes and artificial intelligence (AI) advancements.

Notably, as AI Center Head Gray G. Lee in a media interview in May revealed, there are plans to bring Bixby to a total of 14 million units of Samsung devices this year. The Galaxy Watch will certainly contribute to some extent on that front. Also, the Bixby integration within the Galaxy Watch will make a strong competitor against Apple Watch that includes Siri support.

If we believe some previous reports, the Galaxy Watch will run Wear OS and support UX interaction. The smartwatch, which was previously rumoured as the Gear S4, is also said to pack a 470mAh battery and offer blood pressure monitoring as well as some other fitness-focused features.

          Smart Technology That Tracks People Through Walls Raises Privacy Concerns      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Phillip Schneider; Phillip Schneider

A team of researchers from MIT have developed and tested a technology called RF-Pose, which uses artificial intelligence to track and identify the postures and movements of individuals through solid walls.

By analyzing radio signals which are bounced off people’s bodies, the technology can create stick figure interpretations of the subject with an accuracy of about 83%.

The developers say that RF-Pose could be used by healthcare practitioners to monitor diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, and Parkinson’s. However, the technology has been a call to concern for privacy advocates.

RF-Pose technology can “see” computer-generated silhouettes of human bodies.
“If a normal camera is recording me, it means I am able to see the camera, too. [However,] If the camera can be hidden behind or even inside an object, I would never be able to know when I am being monitored.” – Ginés Hidalgo, Research Associate at the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University

But if KLM Royal Dutch Airways has its way, you'll be able to give those weary arms a break — all thanks to robotics. Meet Care-E, the airline's friendly luggage trolley prototype.

The Care-E is a self-driving trolley packed with autonomous technology and artificial intelligence. The airline will be conducting two-day trials at both JFK and SFO this summer. 

The airline was planning to demo the Care-E at an event in Brooklyn today, but cancelled the event at the last minute (about 12 hours before it was set to take place).

Have you ever noticed something most virtual assistants have in common? They all started out female. One of the most famous, Amazon's Alexa, got her name because of CEO Jeff Bezos' preference. "The idea was creating the Star Trek computer. The Star Trek computer was a woman," says Alex Spinelli, who ran the team that created the software for Alexa. Spinelli is now the chief technology officer of LivePerson. His boss, CEO Robert LoCascio, is bothered by that story about Alexa. "That's just not a good enough reason to make a technology a woman," LoCascio says. LivePerson builds chatbots and artificial intelligence personas for brands. Chatbots are those little characters that pop up on your screen to offer help. LoCascio is one of the leaders of an effort called the Equal AI initiative . Its members include Arianna Huffington and Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales. LoCascio believes the male-dominated AI industry brings its own unconscious bias to the decision of what gender to make a

           Start of production of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class in Finland       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The ramp-up for the new A-Class has reached Finland: it began in April at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Rastatt, Germany and was followed by the Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét, Hungary in May. The production partner Valmet Automotive has started production of the new A-Class in its plant in Uusikaupunki, the third location in the global production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars, where the new A-Class is produced.”With the ramp-up of the new A-Class in Uusikaupunki, Finland, we are successfully continuing our unrivalled ramp-up cascade. After the lead plant in Rastatt and the Hungarian plant in Kecskemét, our production partner Valmet Automotive has started production of the new A-Class. Within a very short time, our production strategy has enabled us to master the third successful ramp-up of the new A-Class,” says Markus Schäfer, Member of the Divisional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Production and Supply Chain.Mercedes-Benz is continuing its cooperation with Valmet Automotive with production of the new A-Class in Uusikaupunki, Finland. The previous generation of the A-Class has already been rolled off the assembly line there since 2013. In Uusikaupunki the A-Class is flexibly produced on the same line together with the Mercedes-Benz GLC.Extensive conversion work was carried out at the Uusikaupunki plant for the ramp-up of the new A-Class in the body shop as well as in the paint shop and the assembly areas.“We have focused on preparations to secure a fast launch and a high volume production run. We have also benefited from our experiences with the previous A-Class generation and the GLC,” says Pasi Rannus, Senior Vice President Manufacturing, Valmet Automotive.The new A-Class is the first model in the fourth generation of compact cars, and replaces the preceding model produced since 2012. The family of compact cars currently comprises five models: A-Class, B-Class, CLA, CLA Shooting Brake, and GLA. An all-new sixth compact model was also recently presented at the trade fair in Beijing: The new long wheelbase A-Class saloon is specially designed to meet the needs of Chinese customers. The new compact car family is to be expanded to a total of eight models.For the start of production of the A-Class, apprentices from the Rastatt plant produced a steering wheel model using modern additive production processes (3D printing). The steering wheel has a screen on which employees can upload messages for the next plant in the ramp-up cascade. The model is passed on from plant to plant like a baton. The Uusikaupunki team was delighted about the greetings from the colleagues in Kecskemét, and likewise prepared a message for the next plant in the start-up cascade. Before the end of this year, a new compact car model will start production in the joint venture COMPAS (Cooperation Manufacturing Plant Aguascalientes) plant in central Mexico. Global production of the new Mercedes-Benz compact carsThe current compact car models are produced in a global production network. Rastatt in Germany is the lead plant for compact cars in the global production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars. The Rastatt plant controls the production as well as quality and supplier management on a global basis. It also supports smooth ramp-ups at the other plants by training their employees, for example. Alongside the Finnish production partner Valmet Automotive in Uusikaupunki, the Hungarian Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét and Beijing-Benz Automotive Co. Ltd (BBAC) in China are part of the global compact car production network. In the near future, the joint venture production plant COMPAS (Cooperation Manufacturing Plant Aguascalientes) in central Mexico will expand the compact car production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars to five locations on three continents.In the future the Hambach plant in France will also produce a compact Mercedes-Benz electric car under the new product and technology brand EQ, expending the compact car production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars to six sites on three continents. Alongside the lead plant in Rastatt and BBAC in Peking, Hambach is the third location in the global production network of Mercedes-Benz Cars where compact electric cars under the product and technology brand EQ will leave the production line in the future.The new A-Class - benchmark in the compact classThe new A-Class celebrated its world premiere on February 2, 2018, and was presented to a wide audience for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March. It has been available for order already since March, and had its market launch in Europe in beginning of May.The new A-Class is the first Mercedes-Benz model to feature the completely new MBUX multimedia system - Mercedes-Benz User Experience, which also ushers in a new era in Mercedes me connectivity. A unique feature of this system is its ability to learn thanks to artificial intelligence. MBUX can be customized if desired and adapts to the user. As a further option, it features intelligent voice control which is activated by the key phrase “Hey Mercedes”.Despite its sporty look, the new A-Class has considerably more utility value, making it as youthful as ever but grown-up like never before. More shoulder, elbow and headroom plus easier access to the rear are clear benefits, as is the larger and more family and recreation-friendly luggage compartment. All-round visibility has also been considerably improved. This enhances both safety and the sense of spaciousness. The new A-Class has the very latest driving assistance systems with cooperative driver support, giving it the highest level of active safety in this segment with functions adopted from the S‑Class.The new A-Class is not just filled with many innovations. It is also being produced in a really innovative way using modern technologies, which make the digital factory a fact. As of recently in Rastatt (Germany) and in Kecskemét and now in Uusikaupunki (Finland).

          Consumer, perché l’intelligenza artificiale ha già vinto      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

L’intelligenza artificiale non è più estranea ai consumatori, anzi: a loro piace sia miscelata con la componente umana, sia in grado di emularlo completamente.

Circa tre quarti (73%) degli intervistati da Capgemini per una ricerca del Digital Transformation Institute hanno infatti affermato di averla utilizzata e il 69% di essere rimasto soddisfatto.

Il report “The Secret to Winning Customers’ Hearts with Artificial Intelligence: Add Human Intelligence” ha rivelato che il 55% dei consumatori predilige interazioni che nascono da un mix di intelligenza artificiale e componente umana, mentre il 64% preferirebbe che l’intelligenza artificiale assomigliasse di più all’uomo.

Per quasi la metà degli intervistati (48%), le caratteristiche affini a quelle umane possono incrementare l’interesse dei consumatori, favorendo una maggiore propensione all’acquisto.

Metodologia

Hanno preso parte alla realizzazione del report 10.000 clienti e 500 manager di  aziende in 10 mercati a livello globale .Tutte le aziende coinvolte hanno riportato ricavi superiori al miliardo di dollari nell’esercizio fiscale del 2017. Il sondaggio si è svolto a maggio 2018 ed è stato integrato con tre focus group virtuali composti da 8-10 consumatori ciascuno negli Stati Uniti, Francia e Germania. La ricerca include interviste a stakeholder dell’industria ed a esponenti del mondo accademico

Tuttavia, molte aziende non riescono a gestire reclami e preferenze espressi dai consumatori quando utilizzano l’intelligenza artificiale nella customer experience, concentrandosi maggiormente su parametri tradizionali come il costo di implementazione e il ritorno sull’investimento (ROI).

Il report ha rilevato che al 63% dei consumatori piace l’intelligenza artificiale per il fatto di essere disponibile 24 ore su 24, 7 giorni su 7, poiché permette loro di avere un maggiore controllo delle interazioni.

I consumatori stanno familiarizzando anche con l’idea degli alter ego digitali: il 48% afferma che l’opportunità di poter delegare compiti a un assistente personale elettronico sia una prospettiva entusiasmante, mentre il 46% ritiene che questi possano migliorare la qualità della vita.

La crescente dimestichezza dei consumatori nell’utilizzare l’Intelligenza artificiale li sta ulteriormente rassicurando sul fatto che tale tecnologia presenti caratteristiche affini a quelle umane.

Più di tre consumatori su cinque (62%) si sentono a proprio agio con una tecnologia dotata di una forma di intelligenza simile a quella umana.

Quasi la metà (49%) afferma che avrebbe una maggiore affinità con quelle aziende in cui le interazioni abilitate dall’Intlligenza artificialke presentano più caratteristiche simili a quelle umane, e sorprende che la stessa percentuale di preferenza abbia un carattere trans-generazionale.

Infatti, in tutti i gruppi di età compresa tra i 18 e i 55 anni, i consumatori preferiscono che le interazioni siano rese possibili da un mix di intelligenza artificiale e componente umana.

Tuttavia, i clienti preferiscono che la loro interazione con l’Intelligenza arrtificiale sia solo a livello auditivo ed esperienziale, ma non visivo. Se da un lato i consumatori sono entusiasti del fatto che l’intelligenza artificiale si rivolga a loro con voce umana (62%) e sia dotata della capacità di comprendere le emozioni (57%), dall’altro le caratteristiche fisiche sono considerate “inquietanti”. Oltre la metà (52%) dei clienti, infatti, non si trova a proprio agio quando l’intelligenza artificiale vuole sembrare una persona reale.

Dal report emerge anche che due terzi dei consumatori (66%) vorrebbero essere avvisati qualora le aziende decidessero di adottare l’Intelligenza artificiale per interagire con essi.

Nonostante l’interesse dei consumatori per una customer experience basata sull’intelligenza artificiale, le aziende stanno dando priorità alle metriche tradizionali piuttosto che alle preferenze dei clienti.

Il report ha rilevato che tra i fattori considerati prioritari dalle aziende nell’implementazione dell’Intelligenza artificiale ci sono i costi (per il 62% delle imprese) e il ROI (per il 59% delle imprese).

Soltanto per il 7% delle aziende, invece, è fondamentale gestire i reclami dei consumatori, mentre il 10% degli intervistati ritiene l’impatto sulla customer experience uno dei fattori chiave da tenere in considerazione nell’implementazione delI’Intelligenza artificiale. Si tratta, però, di un approccio inefficace, dato che i consumatori sono disposti a spendere di più nel caso in cui venga loro offerta una customer experience positiva.

Dall’indagine è emerso che il 38% degli acquirenti ha speso di più a seguito di un’esperienza con l’Intelligenza artificiale positiva, tanto che un quarto degli intervistati ha incrementato la propria spesa fino al 10%. Inoltre, le interazioni abilitate dall’Intelligenza artificiale favoriscono anche un maggiore grado di fidelizzazione e di fiducia nei confronti della società.

L'articolo Consumer, perché l’intelligenza artificiale ha già vinto è un contenuto originale di 01net.

Succinctly put: what and why should we address these problems with new tech?  We struggled with  the same thing when we started with this in the 90s. We were already using analytical and statistical methods, but if we had to ratchet up the tech, which problems deserved it?  Which were most risky?  We worried less about the labor implications until we proved we could it at all. What resources did we need?  McKinsey as usual states it well.

AI, automation, and the future of work: Ten things to solve for
By James Manyika and Kevin Sneader

As machines increasingly complement human labor in the workplace, we will all need to adjust to reap the benefits.

Automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are transforming businesses and will contribute to economic growth via contributions to productivity. They will also help address “moonshot” societal challenges in areas from health to climate change.

At the same time, these technologies will transform the nature of work and the workplace itself. Machines will be able to carry out more of the tasks done by humans, complement the work that humans do, and even perform some tasks that go beyond what humans can do. As a result, some occupations will decline, others will grow, and many more will change.

While we believe there will be enough work to go around (barring extreme scenarios), society will need to grapple with significant workforce transitions and dislocation. Workers will need to acquire new skills and adapt to the increasingly capable machines alongside them in the workplace. They may have to move from declining occupations to growing and, in some cases, new occupations.

This executive briefing, which draws on the latest research from the McKinsey Global Institute, examines both the promise and the challenge of automation and AI in the workplace and outlines some of the critical issues that policy makers, companies, and individuals will need to solve for.

GLOBAL POLICE STATE: Chinese government developing AI that can recognize anyone, anywhere

A computer system that can track and identify any face anywhere may sound like science fiction, but, in China, two such companies are barreling ahead at making such technology an everyday reality. The two startups, SenseTime and Megvii, are developing competing facial recognition platforms powered by artificial intelligence. SenseTime became the world’s highest-valued AI startup after raising $600 million in April at a valuation of $4.5 billion.
The company raised another $620 million last month. Megvii isn’t far behind. It raised $460 million last November. While the valuation hasn’t been disclosed, it’s likely that it is close to or tops $2 billion. Two smaller Chinese companies include Yitu Technology, which raised $380 million last year, and DeepGlint. The eye-popping valuations shouldn’t be surprising to anyone paying attention. Last year, the Chinese government unveiled a plan to make the country the world leader in AI and to develop an AI industry worth $150 billion by 2030. READ MORE

          China Steals Secrets Behind Apple's Self-Driving Car      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The US has arrested a former Apple employee who allegedly tried to abscond with sensitive proprietary information from the company's closely guarded self-driving car project, according to the Financial Times. Xiaolang Zhang, who had recently left his position at Apple under suspicious circumstances, was arrested by FBI agents as he tried to board a plane bound for mainland China.

Zhang joined Apple in December 2015, and was arrested on July 7. US prosecutors allege that he had downloaded sensitive information about the company's self-driving car research without permission. During his time at the company, Zhang worked "to develop software and hardware for use in autonomous vehicles."

The charges against Zhang represent the latest in a series of arrests made by federal authorities of Chinese spies carrying out what the US government calls "economic espionage" that date back to 2006.

China

And with President Trump intensifying efforts to stop China from extracting intellectual property from foreign corporate partners trying to gain a foothold in Chinese markets, it's hardly surprising that China is stepping up its espionage programs. Zhang initially aroused suspicion when he told Apple that he would be returning to China to take a job with Xiaopeng Motors, a Chinese electric-car startup that also has offices in the Bay Area.

The complaint against Mr Zhang said about 5,000 of Apple’s 135,000 full-time employees have security clearance for Titan, although that figure may include staff across the company working on artificial intelligence technology, as well as hundreds of people working on the car project itself.

Mr Zhang allegedly told Apple on April 30 that he intended to resign after returning from paternity leave. He told his supervisor he was moving back to China to be closer to his mother, who he said was ill. Later in the meeting, he said he intended to work for XMotors, according to the filing on Tuesday.

His comments apparently raised the suspicions of his supervisor. Mr Zhang was asked to turn over his Apple-owned devices and escorted from its campus, his network and building access revoked, the filing said.

Apple began an internal investigation and allegedly found he had downloaded information about its autonomous vehicle project. CCTV footage showed he had also taken a large box from Apple’s self-driving car lab shortly before informing his supervisor about his resignation, the US government claimed.

After his arraignment on Monday, a judge ordered that Zhang be held until his trial, presumably because he presents a serious flight risk (Chinese authorities would

US prosecutors alleged he had downloaded information from a database for Apple’s self-driving car project - including data on power requirements, battery system and drivetrain suspension mounts - shortly before informing Apple in April that he was resigning.

He allegedly told the company he intended to return to China and take a job with Xiaopeng Motors, a Chinese electric car start-up with offices in Guangzhou and Palo Alto, California.

Mr Zhang appeared in court in San Jose, California, on Monday and was remanded in custody, according to a separate filing. He was assigned a public defender, who did not immediately return a call requesting comment.

Xiaopeng Motors, also known as XMotors, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. According to the filing on Tuesday, Mr Zhang claimed to have joined XMotors’ California office after leaving Apple.

Not much is publicly known about Apple's secretive self-driving car program, codenamed Project Titan. According to the FT, it's presently focusing on the underlying software for autonomous cars.

Details started to emerge about Apple’s secret project to create an electric vehicle in early 2015, as it poached staff from carmakers including Tesla and Mercedes-Benz. Since then, Apple has rarely discussed its plans but regulatory filings, including its permit to test autonomous vehicles in California last year, have hinted at its strategy.

Codenamed Project Titan, the effort underwent a shift in strategy in mid-2016, after its initial leader Steve Zadesky was replaced by Apple veteran Bob Mansfield.

At the moment, Apple is focusing on developing the underlying systems required for autonomous driving, rather than the vehicle itself. That includes a plan to test a self-driving shuttle to ferry employees around its offices in Silicon Valley.

As the US said in the document unveiling its latest round of proposed tariffs, the Trump administration has been seeking to stymie China's "Made in China 2025" plan - a government-backed initiative to establish China as a leader in several key industries like artificial intelligence - at every turn. Under Trump, the US has been more aggressive about blocking Chinese companies attempting to acquire US firms in an effort to siphon off their valuable technology. So China has been working on other methods for surreptitiously stealing the technology.

"Apple takes confidentiality and the protection of our intellectual property very seriously," an Apple spokesperson said. "We’re working with authorities on this matter and will do everything possible to make sure this individual and any other individuals involved are held accountable for their actions."

XMotors, Zhang's erstwhile employer, is one of the dozens of startups working on electric and autonomous vehicles in Silicon Valley. Its purported involvement in the espionage case is made even more galling by the fact that its backers include some of the most well-known Chinese firms like Alibaba. This year, the company hired a former senior banker at JPMorgan to be the company's vice chairman and president. WSJ reported on Wednesday that China is considering other methods of retaliating against President Trump in the battle over trade, including holding up licenses for US firms operating in the Chinese market, to enforcing customs delays while also delaying approval of deals like Qualcomm's planned takeover of NXP Semiconductors. 

By some estimates, China has 20,000 intelligence operatives embedded in the US ready to commit economic espionage at every conceivable opportunity. China also employs sophisticated hackers like the group that recently infiltrated a military contractor and stole military secrets. And as trade tensions intensify, expect China to press its espionage advantage as President Xi Jinping is determined to make "Made in China 2025" a resounding success.

There are obvious technological applications for GQN, but it has also caught the eye of neuroscientists, who are particularly interested in the training algorithm it uses to learn how to perform its tasks. From the presented image, GQN generates predictions about what a scene should look like — where objects should be located, how shadows should fall against surfaces, which areas should be visible or hidden based on certain perspectives — and uses the differences between those predictions and its actual observations to improve the accuracy of the predictions it will make in the future. “It was the difference between reality and the prediction that enabled the updating of the model,” said Ali Eslami, one of the project’s leaders.
According to Danilo Rezende, Eslami’s co-author and DeepMind colleague, “the algorithm changes the parameters of its model in such a way that next time, when it encounters the same situation, it will be less surprised.”
Neuroscientists have long suspected that a similar mechanism drives how the brain works. (Indeed, those speculations are part of what inspired the GQN team to pursue this approach.) According to this “predictive coding” theory, at each level of a cognitive process, the brain generates models, or beliefs, about what information it should be receiving from the level below it. These beliefs get translated into predictions about what should be experienced in a given situation, providing the best explanation of what’s out there so that the experience will make sense. The predictions then get sent down as feedback to lower-level sensory regions of the brain. The brain compares its predictions with the actual sensory input it receives, “explaining away” whatever differences, or prediction errors, it can by using its internal models to determine likely causes for the discrepancies.

I think we are already seeing signs of this as we enter the digital era. Cultural and institutions were developed in the analogy era. What will be the effect of entering the digital era? No one knows. But it also seem that peering into the future will be different for analog natives and digital natives based on differences in information acquisition and processing.

"The medium is the message." — Marshall McLuhan
The phrase was introduced in McLuhan's book Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man, published in 1964. McLuhan proposes that a medium itself, not the content it carries, should be the focus of study. He said that a medium affects the society in which it plays a role not only by the content delivered over the medium, but also by the characteristics of the medium itself.
In interacting with digital natives, it seems clear to me that they are operating in a different psychological-epistemological space than those who grew up in the analogy age. This observation is only anecdotal at this point, and it would be interesting to see some studies exploring this and what it may imply individually and socially.

I don't think that Kissinger is being overly alarmist on this, but that is a view that is clearly based by people that are used to framing the world in terms of their worldview. New worldviews are in the process of developing both in reaction to changing conditions but also shaping them. History is Dynamic, non-linear, dialectical and spiraling, which would be expected in complex adaptive systems characterized by reflectivity and emergence.

  • Daimler will launch an autonomous ride-hailing service in California during the second half of 2019, the company announced on Wednesday. 
  • The service will operate in Silicon Valley on pre-selected routes, but Daimler did not disclose which city it will use. 
  • The ride-hailing service will be free for users during its pilot phase, a Daimler representative confirmed.
  • The representative also said the company will use Mercedes-Benz vehicles with human backup drivers for the pilot.


Daimler will launch an autonomous ride-hailing service in California during the second half of 2019, the company announced on Wednesday. 

The automaker, which is the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, will team with the auto manufacturer Bosch for the project and use self-driving technology from Nvidia. The service will operate in Silicon Valley on pre-selected routes, but Daimler did not disclose which city it will use. 

The ride-hailing service will be free for users during its pilot phase, a Daimler representative confirmed. The representative also said the company will use Mercedes-Benz vehicles with human backup drivers for the pilot.

Daimler will also test a fleet of autonomous vehicles outside of the ride-hailing service.

Daimler and Bosch announced a partnership to work on self-driving vehicles in April 2017. Daimler provides test vehicles and facilities, which Bosch makes self-driving hardware. The companies plan to have self-driving technology ready for mass production by 2020. Nvidia will provide an artificial intelligence platform and software for the vehicles.

Michael Hafner, Daimler's head of automated driving, said safety is a priority for its autonomous driving program.

"Safety has the highest priority, and is the constant theme of all aspects and development stages on our way to the start of series production. If in doubt, thoroughness comes before speed," he said in a press release.

Daimler will join a handful of other tech and automotive companies that plan to debut autonomous ride-hailing services this year and next. Google's Waymo plans to launch an autonomous ride-hailing service in Phoenix by the end of this year, and General Motors' Cruise plans to do so in 2019. Jalopnik has reported that Cruise will locate its service in San Francisco.

Uber had planned to launch an autonomous ride-hailing service in 2019 before one of its self-driving vehicles hit and killed a pedestrian in Arizona in March. The company stopped testing autonomous cars on public roads after the incident, but plans to resume testing this summer after finishing a review of its self-driving program.

Ride-hailing services allow companies to restrict the areas where their autonomous vehicles can drive so they can avoid challenging features like snow and poorly marked roads.

          Will AI "Change the World" Or Simply Boost Profits?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,

The real battle isn't between a cartoonish vision or a dystopian nightmare - it's between decentralized ownership and control of these technologies and centralized ownership and control.

The hype about artificial intelligence (AI) and its cousins Big Data and Machine Learning is ubiquitous, and largely unexamined. AI is going to change the world by freeing humankind from most of its labors, etc. etc. etc.

Let's start by asking: who owns all this AI? This raises two other questions:who benefits as "software eats the world" (to use Marc Andreesen's pithy phrase), and to what purpose is all this technology being applied?

The answers are painfully obvious: large global corporations, many of which function as quasi-monopolies (Facebook, Google et al.), are the owners of these new technologies, and the purpose being pursued is to maximize profits and secure a monopoly that insures high profits into the future.

The hype takes two predictable pathways, one Jetson-cartoonish euphoria and the other dystopian ruin. Self-driving vehicles will change the world in wonderful ways by eliminating the source of accidents: human error.

And that's a nightmarish prospect because what will those millions of people currently driving vehicles do for a living?

Few people ask: who will profit from all this? Obviously, the manufacturers of self-driving vehicles and the owners of services which replace private vehicles.

The real race in AI is to secure profitable franchises and eliminate competitors by scaling up faster than other corporations.

This is why the market cheers Netflix burning billions of dollars every year: if they're burning billions, they must be scaling up faster than competitors, and thus they will be the ultimate "winner" in the race to create and distribute mediocre content globally.

Consider the uses which corporate-owned AI has already been used to maximize profits: Facebook's manipulation of its users' data and content feeds and its selling of their data.

After a brief downturn due to fears of regulation, the market is back in love with Facebook's immense profits, and Facebook's stock is once again at record highs.

AI and Big Data collection is the profitable heart of Surveillance Capitalism, which includes Amazon's gargantuan contracts with the National Security agencies and similar work being performed by many other lower-profile contractors (SAIC, et al.)

Rather than a Jetson-cartoonish world of intelligent robots doing all the work so we can all become poets and watch mediocre films all day long, what AI is doing in the real world is extracting profits from data collected from the populace either to market something more effectively or to control the populace more effectively.

The AI-robotics enthusiasts never seem to actually work in the AI-robotics industries. They are media types who extrapolate extrapolations without asking the key questions:who will own this technology, and to what purpose will it be applied?

We know the answers: global corporations and maximizing profits.

To dismantle just one part of the Jetson-cartoonish worldview of robots and AI becoming essentially free to everyone: fabricating a robot will never be free because robots require large quantities of energy and resources for their manufacture and maintenance. Even if human labor has been completely eliminated, the costs of extracting, refining and transporting resources remain, along with the costs of extracting the energy to do all this work as well as manufacture and assemble all the parts.

Eliminating human labor removes very little of the cost structure.

As for AI software being "free"-- it will be free like the Android operating system and the Apple iOS: free to those developing profitable uses of corporately owned franchises.

In my worldview, AI has one purpose: eliminating bias and privilege. Properly programmed software won't keep track of skin color or other sources of human bias.

The danger is corporately owned software tracks everything that can be used to market or control the populace, and this includes every nuance of bias and privilege.

The real battle isn't between a cartoonish vision or a dystopian nightmare--it's between decentralized ownership and control of these technologies and centralized ownership and control.

The CLIME system (as described in my book A Radically Beneficial World) is in effect a decentralized, distributed AI system that organizes a network of independently, democratically operated community groups that pay members to perform needed work in their communities.

Will AI be harnessed to maximize profits for the wealthy few, or will some thin, decentralized slice of these technologies actually serve unprofitable human needs?

          Listen To New CROSSFAITH Song 'Catastrophe'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
"Catastrophe", a brand new song from Japanese metal juggernauts CROSSFAITH, can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band's new album, "Ex_Machina", which was released on August 3. The disc features lead single "The Perfect Nightmare" as well as cameos from ENTER SHIKARI frontman Rou Reynolds and industrial hip hoppers Ho99o9. On "Ex_Machina", singer Kenta "Ken" Koie explains: "After we released our last album 'Xeno', we were thinking about what the next theme is for us. We decided on 'awake the individuality,' because we're always trying to make new things and that's a big part of the band's attitude. "This album is a grave warning for our future. I hope you guys listen to this and think about what the meaning of this album is for you and feel how you feel through this album and start something for your future." "Ex_Machina" is a concept album set in an alternative near future in which the ruling class, known as Angels, maintain their world through artificial intelligence and other technology, which dehumanises people and effectively turns them into drones — as explained in the opening title track, "Deus Ex Machina". The other 12 songs featured on the album represent the voice of the resistance — in the form of underdogs known as Demons. Kenta was inspired to include these figures by Devilman Crybaby, particularly on the SLIPKNOT-esque "Catastrophe", the frantic, bloodcurdling "The Perfect Nightmare", and the epic assault of "Daybreak", rather than because they wanted to provide a comment on religion. "There's no particular religious message," clarifies Ken. "In order to explore the dualism of humans, we decided to include angels and demons, which are opposing elements just like fire and water." "Angels aren't necessarily good and demons aren't necessarily bad," he explains. "The most important theme is that we should never stop questioning the world around us." "Ex_Machina" is a relentless album that strives for the listener's attention, and is unquestionably the heaviest that CROSSFAITH have put their name to since forming in their native Osaka in 2006. Since their inception, CROSSFAITH have been on the edge of a fusion of rock, metal, electronica and big ideas on their albums; and the edge of euphoria with their live shows. "Ex_Machina" is the album on which they walk that fine, fiery line more skillfully and seismically than ever. "Ex_Machina" track listing: 01. Deus Ex Machina 02. Catastrophe 03.

   <p>The ground-breaking technology of SC031GS can significantly improve two-dimensional barcode scanning performance in information retrieval and payment applications. SC031GS provides a wider-range, higher-speed and more-accurate recognition technology for smart barcode readers than other similar products, adapting to the rapid growth of Internet of Things (IoT) and complex situations in real life. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can also benefit from the high response speed, wide dynamic range and low power consumption of SC031GS.</p>
   <p>SC031GS is developed based on BSI pixel design technology, using 3.75um large pixels (1/6" optical size) to deliver excellent imaging quality in low illumination environments with impeccable sensitivity and signal to noise ratio. In addition, SC031GS uses SmartSens' unique single-frame HDR technology, combined with a global shutter, to ensure accurate acquisition of image information in complex applications (motion) and lighting scenes. </p>
   <p>Compared with conventional CMOS image sensors using Multiple-Exposure HDR technology, SmartSens'unique single-frame HDR Global Shutter technology is more suitable for image recognition-based AI applications. When combined with DVP/MIPI/LVDS interface, SC031GS can be adapted to various types of SoC platform. The maximum full-frame frame rate of 240fps <span id="spanHghlt0793">shortens&nbsp;image </span>acquisition frame interval while edge computing provides better real-time response capabilities.</p>

          Video surveillance equipment market growing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
07/11/2018

Growth in the global professional video surveillance equipment market accelerated in 2017, and is forecasted to continue growing in 2018, according the latest IHS Markit research.

The world market for professional video surveillance equipment grew by 9.3 percent in 2017, IHS found, a much higher rate of growth than in 2016 (3.9 percent) and 2015 (1.9 percent).

“Increased government spending on equipment to fight crime and terrorism was a major factor in this growth, as was private sector spending on replacing equipment in retail and commercial installations,” Jon Cropley, senior principal analyst, video surveillance, IHS Markit, said in a summary of the study.

Increasing demand for security cameras is expected in 2018, he said, but a slightly lower of level of price erosion is also forecast. The combination of these factors will lead to 10.2 percent growth in the video surveillance equipment market, which will reach $18.5 billion in 2018, IHS noted.

Global demand for security cameras grew rapidly in 2017, but average prices continued to fall. “Nevertheless, revenue grew in most countries,” said Cropley. “Two of the fastest-growing country markets were Brazil and India. A major factor behind the growth in both countries was increased spending by private retail and commercial organizations on HD CCTV systems used to prevent crime.”

Accounting for 44 percent of all global revenue, the Chinese professional video surveillance equipment market grew by 14.7 percent, while the world market excluding China grew just 5.5 percent. “One major reason for the higher growth in China was the government’s Xue Liang program driving investment in both city surveillance projects and extending city surveillance systems into surrounding rural areas,” Cropley noted.

Other key findings include:
•    Although it remains highly fragmented compared to many other markets, the supply base for professional video surveillance equipment is gradually becoming more concentrated. The top 15 vendors accounted for 62 percent of global revenue in 2017.

•    Overall, 62 percent of all security cameras shipped in 2017 were network cameras.

•    Deep-learning-enabled recorders and servers, a new category this year, are an important element in powering what many expect to be the next generation of video analytics using artificial intelligence. They accounted for just 1 percent of global market revenues in 2017.

  • Daimler will launch an autonomous ride-hailing service in California during the second half of 2019, the company announced on Wednesday. 
  • The service will operate in Silicon Valley on pre-selected routes, but Daimler did not disclose which city it will use. 
  • The ride-hailing service will be free for users during its pilot phase, a Daimler representative confirmed.
  • The representative also said the company will use Mercedes-Benz vehicles with human backup drivers for the pilot.


Daimler will launch an autonomous ride-hailing service in California during the second half of 2019, the company announced on Wednesday. 

The automaker, which is the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, will team with the auto manufacturer Bosch for the project and use self-driving technology from Nvidia. The service will operate in Silicon Valley on pre-selected routes, but Daimler did not disclose which city it will use. 

The ride-hailing service will be free for users during its pilot phase, a Daimler representative confirmed. The representative also said the company will use Mercedes-Benz vehicles with human backup drivers for the pilot.

Daimler will also test a fleet of autonomous vehicles outside of the ride-hailing service.

Daimler and Bosch announced a partnership to work on self-driving vehicles in April 2017. Daimler provides test vehicles and facilities, which Bosch makes self-driving hardware. The companies plan to have self-driving technology ready for mass production by 2020. Nvidia will provide an artificial intelligence platform and software for the vehicles.

Michael Hafner, Daimler's head of automated driving, said safety is a priority for its autonomous driving program.

"Safety has the highest priority, and is the constant theme of all aspects and development stages on our way to the start of series production. If in doubt, thoroughness comes before speed," he said in a press release.

Daimler will join a handful of other tech and automotive companies that plan to debut autonomous ride-hailing services this year and next. Google's Waymo plans to launch an autonomous ride-hailing service in Phoenix by the end of this year, and General Motors' Cruise plans to do so in 2019. Jalopnik has reported that Cruise will locate its service in San Francisco.

Uber had planned to launch an autonomous ride-hailing service in 2019 before one of its self-driving vehicles hit and killed a pedestrian in Arizona in March. The company stopped testing autonomous cars on public roads after the incident, but plans to resume testing this summer after finishing a review of its self-driving program.

Ride-hailing services allow companies to restrict the areas where their autonomous vehicles can drive so they can avoid challenging features like snow and poorly marked roads.

          Facebook taught bots to navigate New York City using natural language      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Imagine a tourist and a guide exchanging texts as the visitor tries to find the Manhattan coffee shop where she’s meeting a friend. Text by text, she mentions businesses or landmarks she spots, and after each, the guide instructs her to turn right, left, or go straight. Finally, she arrives.

In the age of Google Maps on our smartphones, this seems unnecessary, but if you’re trying to build an artificial intelligence system that uses natural language communication to help us solve everyday problems, this is precisely what you would build to help advance the state of the art.

That’s why Facebook’s artificial intelligence scientists built Talk the Walk, a research project that aims to teach AI systems to communicate using natural language in much the same way a baby does—by naming what it sees.

Talk the Walk tasks two AI agents—a tourist, and a guide–with navigating to a location in Manhattan by conversing, with the tourist bot explaining what it “sees” and the guide bot responding with navigational instructions. But the system is also able to parse what the tourist is saying, even if it mixes in colloquial language a human might use. That’s because, Facebook writes in a blog post on the project, “A series of carefully scripted responses isn’t likely to capture the nuanced inaccuracies and muddled messaging inherent to genuine, person-to-person conversations.”

The idea is that this could be a more efficient way to teach AI systems like this to communicate effectively, rather than by training them on pure-text data sets, Facebook believes. And in its experiments, the company’s AI research team found that its bot guide was more accurate than humans performing the same navigation task.

Facebook, like Google, Microsoft, Apple, and other big tech companies, has a strong interest in developing AI systems that communicate well so that users can use their voices or type in casual language to the bots. But even as it’s working on systems that can understand natural language, Facebook has also built bots that have created their own language.

On the town, with a “novel attention mechanism”

The Talk the Walk project was one of the first to work with 360-degree visual information, says Douwe Kiela, a scientist on the Facebook AI Research team in New York. The tourist bot utilizes 360-degree imagery taken by the researchers in five Manhattan neighborhoods, which represents the real world of the street an actual tourist would see, while the guide bot uses a standard 2D map with generic waypoints—”bank,” “coffee shop,” “deli”—to deliver navigation instructions.

Facebook built what it calls a “novel attention mechanism” known as Masked Attention for Spatial Convolution, or MASC, that is designed to help the guide bot zero in on the place on the map that the tourist bot is describing. In the experiments, MASC was twice as accurate as a non-natural language communication approach.

“This task is very important for AI research because it’s very hard,” Kiela says, “and because it combines all these interesting problems—three-hundred-sixty visual perception, map-based navigation, visual reasoning, and natural language communications via dialogue.”

Kiela also says Facebook’s project is the first to ever combine all these challenges in a single task. As to why no one’s tried it before, he says that machine learning has only recently progressed to the point where it is capable of effectively solving this type of natural language problem. As is the case with much of its AI research, Facebook plans on open-sourcing the dataset underlying the project in the hopes that the artificial intelligence community can further advance the work.

Part of the work, Kiela explains, involved building new algorithms that relate what the tourist bot says to what the guide bot sees on its map. The idea was to teach the guide to focus its attention on the map based on whatever the tourist says, and ultimately, zero in on the area of the map in which it thinks the tourist is located.

For now, the work is only a research project, but over time, it seems certain that Facebook wants to integrate this kind of functionality into its virtual assistants—and expects other large tech companies to do the same.

Of course, the online and mobile maps wars are intense, and heating up, with Apple and Google going head-to-head for users’ navigational eyeballs, buying up new tech, and dominating users’ phones.

Now that it’s ready to show the world its work, Facebook plans on continuing to work on the task and its data set in an effort to further combine all the different, complicated components that go into building a human-comprehending robot. “This line of research,” Kiela argues, “is the future of AI research. It’s essential to understand [these components] if we ever want to get to the meaning of language.”

Adds Kiela, “If you want AI to be effective, it needs to better understand what humans need, and it better have some understanding of the world that humans perceive.”

A county IT leader may encounter any number of existential crises: Budget cuts shred the IT workforce. Wildfires literally burn half the county to the ground. A new business process dumps 80,000 new users on the system. These are the kinds of things that can break an IT shop.

The winners of the 16th Annual Digital Counties Survey, conducted by the Center for Digital Government,* have tackled these and a range of other seemingly mortal threats, and come out shining. They’ve learned to cope with the unexpected and seen their thoughtful investments bear fruit in the face of unexpected challenges.

When the going gets rough, this is how IT gets going.

Nevada County, Calif., 1st Place, up to 150,000 Population Category

In Nevada County, headcount is down 26 percent from pre-recession levels, and CIO Steve Monaghan is learning to do more with less. 

That means doing the big jobs first: Cybersecurity is critical and he’s attacked that. It also means leveraging IT assets. Investments in cloud have helped him to make the most of sparse resources. Mostly, though, Monaghan’s task as an IT leader has been to impart a sense of ownership to all involved in supporting the county’s technology needs. 

“We spend a lot of time building culture around taking an entrepreneurial approach,” he said. “We’ve done workshops, we have done a whole service-management initiative aimed at defining everything we offer, every piece of equipment we manage, so that everything has an owner within IT. Everybody knows who is responsible for what, and we ask people to be entrepreneurs over their own services. We want them to run with the ball.” 

Take for instance the network analyst in charge of the VMware farm. “His documentation is immaculate. He has a very tightly run ship. We know what we have, and as a result the service level is very high. We’ve never had an outage on that virtual farm, because he has really taken it to heart that those are his,” Monaghan said. 

Same goes for the analyst overseeing the replacement of the first-generation VPN platform. “He taps into other members to support that, but ultimately he owns that. There’s a sense of ownership that drives the project forward, which in turn leads to an enhanced, more reliable product for the customer,” Monaghan said.

How can a government IT leader spark that entrepreneurial spirit? Much of it comes down to setting expectations. “In the last six months we had a Ph.D. in organizational development come in for multiple sessions to refresh our Values and Expectations document, to do a workshop geared around what it means to take ownership,” he said. “As IT leaders, we have to build these cultural processes, something bigger than any one project. That’s the secret sauce of delivering excellent IT services.”

Arlington County, Va., 1st Place, 150,000-249,999 Population Category

CIO Jack Belcher doesn’t just want to be a back-end provider. He says his department’s job is to serve the public good, a mission he pursues with uncommon vigor. 

“If you make sure the network is running, that the servers are secure — well, that’s what you are expected to do,” he said. “Taking it to the next step is what distinguishes a CIO from an IT director. That next step is all about understanding your community.” 

It isn’t easy to know what the public wants or needs, or how IT can best facilitate. To meet the challenge, Belcher has gone right to the source, organizing a series of public gatherings around the theme of “Defining Arlington’s Digital Destiny.” 

“The idea is to bring together leaders from education, from the community, from government, to think about what might be possible,” Belcher said. He’s hosted events on the future of education, the nature of work, and what it means to be an intelligent community. 

These public gatherings have directly informed the IT agenda. Take for example the recently completed deployment of a countywide fiber-optic network. “These discussions transformed our vision of what to do with that asset,” he said. 

Sure, the fiber could spur development and drive economic growth — they knew that going in. But with community input, the vision evolved. “We saw that we could provide an immense value in the form of digital equity, providing people in affordable housing with free broadband access. That helps break the bonds of poverty,” Belcher said. “It took these discussions to bring that idea to the surface and make it possible.”

Community input likewise helped spur development of a mobile project-tracker app to help keep residents informed about civic undertakings. “We want to make that data available in a form where residents can easily find out what we are doing. How are we spending our money? We want to leverage the technology to provide that level of transparency.”

When the CIO seeks citizen input, there’s risk involved. What if they ask for something extravagant? What if they put something entirely unexpected on the table? Belcher said a strong relationship with county leadership gave him the confidence to open that door. “You can’t do this unless your elected officials have the confidence that you are doing the right thing. There has to be a level of mutual trust,” he said.

Dutchess County, N.Y., 1st Place. 250,000-499,999 Population Category

It’s not just that budgets are stagnant. It’s that, in a time of stagnant budgets, everybody still wants more. Towns want upgraded websites. Cops want cutting-edge technologies. For Glenn Marchi, commissioner of the Dutchess County Office of Central and Information Services, the challenge is to deliver on all that, without breaking the bank. 

“Shared services are key to doing that,” he said. 

This year Marchi’s team worked with public safety officials to bring online emergency 911 service, computer-aided dispatch, and new records managements systems for law enforcement and corrections. The initiative saved the police $500,000 by leveraging county IT resources, including existing hardware and multi-jurisdictional software licenses. 

Marchi has taken the same approach in beefing up the websites of half a dozen towns, police departments and fire districts. His IT professionals will design a site and host it on shared infrastructure. By leveraging these resources across multiple uses, “we can design to exactly their specifications, and we can do it at a lower cost than an outside vendor,” he said.

Towns are free to use outside vendors, and Marchi says isn’t looking to compete with local private-sector IT providers. But he adds that in many cases, the county’s shared-service approach will prove the logical economic choice. 

IT leaders looking to follow this model would do well to reach out actively to civic leaders. The Dutchess County executive hosts an annual Municipal Innovation Summit to ensure mayors and town council members know what is available to them. 

“Our county executive leads that discussion, and anytime an IT solution pops up, my job is to share how that technology can enable a business solution or solve a business problem. I’m there as the CIO for the county to share how technology can be employed to achieve our specific strategic goals,” Marchi said. 

Without such gatherings, it can be hard for a shared services initiative to pick up steam. “We have had seven newly elected town supervisors and mayors in the past year. They have no idea these services are even available,” he said. “It’s our job to tell that story.”

Sonoma County, Calif., 1st Place, 500,000-999,999 Population Category

When wildfires swept through Sonoma County, Calif. in the fall of 2017, Director of Information Systems John Hartwig found the IT landscape as radically transformed as the rolling hills, now scorched and scarred.

“The wildfires put a lot of things on hold. Everybody had to step back and take a new look at the situation,” he said. Geospatial systems suddenly were front and center, along with document management capabilities. Website volume blew up exponentially.

“GIS, for example, had a huge responsibility in things like tracking the fire, tracking the road closures. All that had a spatial component to it,” he said. “The volume on the websites went up at least three times from everybody trying to seek information and find resources. With document management, suddenly everybody was processing requests that would be essential to us filing for federal aid. That means we needed a lot of forms and a lot of document-capturing tools to make sure our record keeping was clean, consistent and available for future reference.”

The key to success: an early investment in virtualization. 

“We had made an advance move early on to virtual machines, where we were able to shift resources on the fly — storage, memory and processing capacity — to the applications that were most urgent,” Hartwig said. 

The county had begun roughly three years ago to virtualize its server environment: An original inventory of more than 700 servers is now about 90 percent virtualized. That infrastructure delivered the flexibility and agility needed to spin up IT capacity and balance workloads in the face of the new, unexpected demands. 

“It put us in a very good position to add to or share resources. If we have 50 applications that are critical to the response, it’s nice to be able to slide resources over to those applications,” Hartwig said. “I don’t think we could have had all these services up and running if we were still on dedicated equipment.”

Montgomery County, Md., 1st Place, 1,000,000 or More Population Category

In Montgomery County, Md., the county runs the booze business. Last year that became IT’s problem, and it triggered a renewed focus on cybersecurity.

“The liquor system needed automated support for warehousing, distribution and point of sale. So it was decided that we would incorporate that into our relatively new Oracle ERP system,” said CIO Sonny Segal. That meant a sudden leap in the user base. “We are up to almost 100,000 external identities in addition to the 20,000 county identities.”

Segal already had a watchful eye on cyberissues, but with the massive influx of non-county users on the system, security became the focus of renewed attention. The IT team put new mechanisms in place to guard against spam and phishing attacks. They also tightened end-point management, effectively cutting enterprise vulnerabilities in half.

“We have taken a very aggressive stance on eliminating endpoint vulnerabilities through continual scanning and remediation,” Segal said. “We are not shy about taking end points offline and pursuing replacement and reimaging on a very aggressive schedule. Those things have paid off in the form of greatly reduced risk.”

Segal upped the security game by implementing tighter controls around IT devices, ensuring that all devices that touch county systems are registered for IT security oversight. He also uses dashboards and other reporting mechanisms to hold individuals and departments more publicly liable for their role in supporting the cybereffort.

“We have implemented risk-based dashboards that include the number of people who didn’t take cybertraining, the number of security instances that can be assigned to specific business units,” he said. “That all connects to our dedication to managing by measurement. Our chief administrative officer has each of the department heads accountable in public sessions for measurements in their business areas. Now security is one of those measured scorecards, and as result we have seen significant improvements in risk reduction.”

1st Nevada County, Calif.

One of 10 Sierra Nevada agencies that were ground zero to the state’s formative Gold Rush, Nevada County, Calif., built on IT accomplishments to reclaim the No. 1 spot in the smallest population category for the second time in three years. Guided by a supportive Board of Supervisors that has set clear technology investment policy, a strategic plan focused on service and an enterprise technology reserve fund, the county of nearly 100,000 has expanded and refreshed online and tech offerings.

County supervisors prioritized innovation in their 2018 value statements, forming an innovation team led by the chief information officer. The county also held a Citizen’s Academy to educate residents on their government. It launched a new regional law enforcement activity map last month, and has created a new public communications position aimed at identifying ways to improve information pushed out to the public through social media and the Internet. The agency is in early stages on an enterprise-level contract management system and has implemented a new in-vehicle video system that fosters collaboration between its district attorney and sheriff’s office.

Nevada County's CivicPlus-powered public website went live in August 2017 with responsive design that eliminated the need for a separate mobile site. The MyNeighborhood app on the website offers parcel, land and property data with new layers documenting marijuana ordinance and roadway information; and the county’s Open Data Portal offers residents a better way to search 18 layers of GIS data. AskNevadaCounty, another app accessible through the website, uses Accela’s customer relationship management (CRM) system to sort questions in eight categories, submit service requests and get answers from six city departments. Plus, new kiosks facilitate residents’ access to probation, sheriff’s and building departments, enabling functions including probationer self-service and building plan submission.

2nd Albemarle County, Va.

Although it slipped from first to second place this year, Albemarle County, Va., (population 108,000) continues its success in transparency and efficiency for citizens. The county uses GIS-enabled apps to let the public view open building permits and important county records like building applications and parcel activity. Residents are also encouraged to give feedback on the county budget and stay up to date with e-newsletters, email and community meetings. The county Board of Supervisors authorized the establishment of a broadband authority to meet the area's growing Internet needs, and the authority has gotten a $430,000 grant to expand broadband and improve wireless coverage for first responders in rural Albemarle.

Albemarle considers cybersecurity an important concern. The county partners with the University of Virginia and the city of Charlottesville to discuss cybersecurity issues, and meets with other universities, school districts and localities statewide to publish the Cybersecurity Partnership for Virginia Cities and Counties report (funded by the National Science Foundation).

This region shares just one emergency communications center, and this year, the county successfully rolled out two records management systems for four public safety agencies to replace incompatible legacy systems. IT teams partnered to launch New World Systems for the police department and Image Trends for fire and rescue, as well as computer-aided dispatch system updates.

3rd Allegan County, Mich.

Third place is a familiar ranking for Allegan County, Mich., which finished in the same spot for counties of up to 150,000 residents last year. Despite this success, county leadership notes, however, that within its ongoing vision it needs to be “continuing to evaluate the technology itself to find efficiencies that will ultimately help offset increasing costs.” If there’s a simpler way to sum up the heart of gov tech efforts, we haven’t heard it. It all speaks to Allegan’s practicality. This is an efficient county that is, for example, prolonging the life of its PCs and laptops by using virtual desktops, thereby still enabling quick and responsive computing. Allegan has also redirected money saved there to cybersecurity.

Meanwhile, the county continues to use analytics and look at trends to tailor its website to customer needs, also using data to build new online services and improve upon existing ones. Data is also helping the county with law enforcement and emergency services deployment, for which it is using GIS and computer-aided dispatch mapping to enhance preparedness, noting emergency management events “rely on data sharing, real-time mapping and data system integrations.” This is especially important with an aging nuclear power plant nearby. The county is also engaged in smaller improvements such as replacing its online court calendar system and deploying digital signage that displays docket information in its courthouse lobby. It’s also improving its online veteran services site and its parks reservation system. Moving forward, digital inclusion is also a priority. The past two years, the county has worked with the Connect Michigan Public Services Commission to complete a broadband assessment. That info is now being used by local city leaders to guide projects aimed at increasing broadband access within their communities.

4th Mono County, Calif.

Mono County, Calif., is home to 13,981 residents, and while it may be small in terms of its population, it has big plans for the future. Mono County, which tied for fourth place in its population category, is currently working with the California Department of Transportation to explore using the Highway 395 corridor and the fiber-optic network that runs alongside it as a testing site for smart transportation technologies. The county is envisioning using Highway 395 as a testbed for autonomous vehicles and other emerging technologies, given its two-hour proximity to Tesla’s Gigafactory in Reno, Nev.

In addition to its smart transportation aspirations, Mono County has several Web initiatives as well. The Transparent Mono Co
