Before we worry about teaching ethical decision-making to robots, we need to figure out how to teach it to the people who build them. Explore the approach that universities like Stanford, MIT, and Harvard are taking to cultivate an understanding of ethical issues in their students, and how this can benefit the companies that may one day employ them.
In cyber security, new threats and vulnerabilities appear at break-neck speed – faster than any one security team or analyst can manage. As new technologies create opportunities to innovate and streamline, businesses must weigh the benefits against the associated security risks. Explore what risks companies should be preparing for, and the trends security teams need to embrace to manage digital risk.
How the human brain works has puzzled researchers for millennia — so actually building a brain from scratch is an unquestionably daunting task. But that’s essentially what scientists today are attempting to do within a subset of AI dubbed Deep Learning.
Company brand logos are everywhere these days, and not just where they expect them to be. A business knows when it has placed an advertisement in a magazine, but it has no knowledge if an ad has been seen by more than the publication’s readers. This is no longer the case thanks to deep learning technology. Learn how deep learning tools are helping businesses identify if its brands and logos in photos posted to social media and how this is producing actionable information that can increase their market share.
As technology reshapes the way we work at warp speed, we need to change training methodologies. How do we prepare the next generation for jobs that haven’t yet been invented? What kind of skillsets will they need, when machines can do what humans do? What kind of tech training do they need today to be ready for the future workplace? And would it mean totally rethinking education to encourage creative problem finding and solving? To explore these questions, we look at schools and startups who are rethinking education to learn and explore the new world of robotics, AI and machine learning.
How does artificial intelligence actually work? What are the pitfalls of this technology that we need to know? Explore the complex nature of this ‘black box’ technology as we break down what artificial intelligence really means.
