Find out this Pattie Maes’ conference held in La Salle Campus Barcelona – URL. Today’s devices are still blind, passive and dumb and their use is very disruptive to our everyday behaviors. The MIT Media Lab’s Fluid Interfaces research group tries to radically rethink human computer interaction with the aim of making the experience more seamless, natural and integrated in our physical lives.
Artificial Intelligence is poised to transform the modern world. In the short term, AI is being deployed like never before to combat COVID-19 as governments, businesses, and health organisations leverage the technology in unprecedented ways. In the long term, AI will represent a step change for the economy, how we live and work, and society at large. If widely adopted, AI could add $330 billion to the UK economy alone by 2030 as it optimises existing sectors and generates entirely new ones. Panelists: Sana Khareghani, Head of the UK Government Office for Artificial Intelligence Saška Mojsilović, Head of IBM Foundations of Trusted AI, Co-Director of IBM Science for Social Good Yolanda Gil, President of the Association for the Advancement of AI, Research Professor in Computer Science at the University of Southern California Moderator: Alison Snyder, Managing Editor, Axios
DESIGNING OUR FUTURE: A PANEL DISCUSSION ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming the modern world, presenting both challenges and opportunities. Three leading AI experts weigh in on the current state of AI, its impact, and its future, as well as how AI is benefiting society during the COVID crisis. This virtual panel was held by the British Embassy on May 14, 2020 in partnership with the National Science Foundation and Axios. Speakers: Sana Khareghani Head of the UK Government Office for Artificial Intelligence Saška Mojsilović Head of IBM Foundations of Trusted AI, Co-Director of IBM Science for Social Good Yolanda Gil President of the Association for the Advancement of AI, Research Professor in Computer Science at the University of Southern California Moderator: Alison Snyder, Managing Editor, Axios For more in this series, watch Designing Our Future: A panel discussion on the future of transportation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ew-IDPaOxaM&list=PL0ujJTaPsv3czvtqdDMbxGOcfBu_i1KFi&index=2&t=0s.

VR Robots like a Human. really??? Designing a Moral Machine
Artificial Intelligence as it has come into the foray in the recent years is a lot more focused on automation. The best of minds right now working in the field are busy decoding how to train AI to automate as much of the time-consuming human tasks as possible. Despite what sensationalist media would have you believe, ‘automation’ not ‘making robots sentient’ is the pressing goal of the AI researchers. However, one of the biggest obstacles that they currently have is that the world is not designed for AIs to comprehend. Most of the products, machines, interactions, etc that we encounter every day are designed for human users, not an artificial intelligence. Hence, at times it becomes quite a challenge for programmers and researcher to train their AI to comprehend these designed-for-humans system. My TEDxDelftSalon talk is around the term that I have coined as ‘AI/AX Design’, which essentially means designing for interaction and experience of an AI in mind, rather than a user. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
