In this Spark Documentary the world’s leading experts attempt to build an artificial human based on actress Gemma Chan, star of the sci-fi series Humans, for a ground-breaking scientific stunt that will test just how far away we are from ‘synthetic’ humans.
In 2022 the covid-19 pandemic will continue to impact our lives in many ways. This means that we will continue to see an accelerated rate of digitization and virtualization of business and society. However, as we move into a new year, the need for sustainability, ever-increasing data volumes, and increasing
Chris Bishop discusses the progress and opportunities of artificial intelligence research. The last five years have witnessed a dramatic resurgence of excitement in the goal of creating intelligent machines. Technology companies are now investing billions of dollars in this field, new research laboratories are springing up around the globe, and
Kate Crawford, Distinguished Research Professor at New York University, a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research New York, and the co-founder and co-director of the AI Now Institute, discusses the biases built into machine learning, and what that means for the social implications of AI. About Speaker: Kate Crawford is a
“Today markets are being reshaped by a new kind of firm – one in which artificial intelligence runs the show. This cohort includes giants like Google, Facebook, and Alibaba, and growing businesses such as Wayfair and Ocado. Every time we use their services, the same thing happens: Rather than relying
“Artificial intelligence is transforming all sectors of the economy, but there’s no reason to fear that robots will replace all human employees. In fact, companies that automate their operations mainly to cut their workforces will see only short-term productivity gains, say the authors. Their research, involving 1,500 firms in a
AI technologies already support many everyday products and services, with further applications to come. Professor Marcus Du Sautoy, mathematician, author, and science communicator speak to leading artificial intelligence experts for a discussion and open forum on technologies with AI at their heart to have the power to change the world.
Ask most board directors and CEO’s to define cybersecurity and artificial intelligence in a board meeting and have them share their answers and you may well find that their depth of knowledge is too shallow in their duty of care responsibilities. This, however, is fast changing after many years where
Every great technology wave has a paradigm, a very broad and deep movement that is only barely perceptible in its infancy. This paradigm typically blossoms into many forms over years, even decades, to come. The entire internet technology wave, for example, was a communications paradigm rooted in sending messages. Decades
“It’s easier to program bias out of a machine than out of a mind.” That’s an emerging conclusion of research-based findings – including my own – that could lead to AI-enabled decision-making systems being less subject to bias and better able to promote equality. This is a critical possibility, given
Join this year’s Turing Prize winner Yann LeCun and other pioneers in artificial intelligence for a no-nonsense discussion of whether a truly intelligent machine can be created – and, if so, how and when. The “thinking machines” that Alan Turing postulated in 1950 have already vaulted beyond us in specific
Computers are getting smarter and more creative, offering spectacular possibilities to improve the human condition. There’s a call to redefine Artificial Intelligence as Augmented Intelligence, to emphasize the potential of humans working with AI as opposed to being replaced by AI. In this program, AI experts, data scientists, engineers, and
