Traditionally, software is built by programmers who consider all the possible situations and write rules to deal with them. But lately, many applications are created by machine learning: the programmer is replaced by a trainer, who shows the computer examples until it learns to complete the task. This shift in the way software is built is opening up exciting new possibilities and posing new challenges. Peter Norvig is a director of research at Google Inc.

Conversational interfaces have emerged as a new way to interact with AI assistants on smartphones, smart speakers, and other devices. However, questions have been raised about the usability of these systems and whether the technologies are sufficiently mature. There are two main approaches to the development of conversational systems: the traditional approach in which systems are designed according to best practice guidelines and the behaviours of the systems and based on handcrafted rules; and the new paradigm of conversational AI in which systems are trained from data using various machine learning techniques. The pros and cons of each approach are highlighted. The presentation concludes with a recommendation that in addition to focusing on technical issues it is also important to consider issues relating to user experience by eliciting user requirements in a process of co-creation and conducting detailed studies of how users actually engage with conversational systems in everyday situations.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer sci-fi. From driverless cars to the use of machine learning algorithms to improve healthcare services and the financial industry, AI and algorithms are shaping our daily practices, and a fast-growing number of fundamental aspects of our societies. This can lead to dangerous situations in which vital decision making is automated – for instance in credit scoring, or sentencing – but limited policies exist for citizens subject to such AI technologies embedded in our social institutions to seek redress. Similarly, well-intended technologists might release AI into society that is ethically unsound. A growing body of literature on improving the auditability and transparency of algorithms is being developed. Yet, more is needed to develop a shared understanding about the fundamental issues at the heart of the debate on AI, algorithms, the law, and ethics. These issues taken together are leading to a renewed focus on, and increasing concern about, the ethical and legal impact of AI on our societies. In this panel we bring together five thought leaders on AI from the corporate sector, academia, politics, and civil society to discuss. We will hear from Paul Nemitz, Monica Beltrametti, Alan Winfield, Vidushi Marda and Sandra Wachter, the conversation will be moderated by Corinne Cath. Panel: – Paul Nemitz – Director responsible for Fundamental rights and Union citizenship in the Directorate-General Justice of the European Commission – Monica Beltrametti – Director at NAVER Labs Europe – Alan Winfield – Professor of Robot Ethics University of the West [More]
There have been many conversations around AI and automation in the past few years. Some people are excited to embrace the coming growth of AI, while others are frightened and worried about how our jobs and our lives will change because of it. This video explores what AI really is, what challenges and benefits it creates and what we can do to ensure we are ready for the oncoming growth of AI. Humans have long been obsessed with creating AI ever since the question, “Can machines think?”, was posed by Alan Turing in 1950. With the prediction that AI will grow 300% this year over last year, it is clear that this trend is not going anywhere anytime soon. What are the two biggest developments to bring AI to the forefront? What are the biggest benefits and challenges with AI? What can individuals do to prepare for the oncoming AI growth? Some people are excited to embrace the coming growth of AI, while others are frightened and worried about how our jobs and our lives will change because of it. One thing that is clear is that AI is a big part of the future of work, so get ready. ———————————————- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world? Will cars drive themselves? What will the employees, managers, and organizations of the future look like and will we all have jobs we love?

Presented by Peter Skomoroch, Co-Founder and CEO, SkipFlag (acquired by Workday) Enterprise and consumer applications increasingly apply machine learning to create conversational interfaces. Adding a conversational UX presents a number of challenges for machine learning practicioners attempting to build intelligent applications. This session will describe some lessons learned from the recent wave of bots and from building SkipFlag, an intelligent knowledge base that integrated with Slack. Should you develop your own algorithms or make use of NLP as a service? How should you plan to include humans in the loop? To what degree do you need to specialize your models for the industry you’re working in? We’ll cover these questions and more.
This presentation took place at the Deep Learning Summit in London on 24-25 Sept 2015: #reworkDL The Challenges of Human Labour Automatization with Deep Learning in the Transport Industry The key idea behind deep learning is to automate human labour, reduce the costs and reduce the time and increase precision in which a task can be done. In the transport industry things like cargo number recognition and counting of objects were first to be automated, and are now improved to a very high precision. However, there are many other tasks in the industry that can be automated, but computers are currently lacking the precision to guarantee the appliance with the industry security standards. This presentation will discuss how we have overcome some of the challenges and give an insight of the upcoming applications and their effects on industry.
