Artificial intelligence & algorithms: pros & cons | DW Documentary

Developments in artificial intelligence (AI) are leading to fundamental changes in the way we live. Algorithms can already detect Parkinson’s disease and cancer, and control both cars and aircraft. How will AI change our society in the future? This documentary journeys to the hot spots of AI research in Europe, the USA and China, and looks at the revolutionary developments which are currently taking place. The rapid growth of AI offers many opportunities, but also many dangers. AI can be used to create sound and video recordings which will make it more and more difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction. It will make the world of work more efficient and many professions superfluous. Algorithms can decide whether to grant loans, who is an insurance risk, and how good employees are. But there is a huge problem: humans can no longer comprehend how algorithms arrive at their decisions. And another big problem is AI’s capacity for widespread surveillance. The Chinese city of Rongcheng is already using an AI-supported ‘social credit system’ to monitor and assess its citizens. Does AI pose a danger to our personal freedoms or democracy? Which decisions can we leave to the algorithms – and which do we want to? And what are AI’s social implications?

Researchers create the world’s first living, programmable robots

After spending decades steeped in science fiction, I wouldn’t immediately associate the words “living” and “robot,” and I doubt a lot of you would either. We can’t say the same about researchers at the University of Vermont and Tufts University, though — they announced this week that they have successfully developed tiny living “machines” of sorts. To paraphrase researcher Joshua Bongard, these aren’t traditional robots or a known species of animal — these are something else entirely. These are living, programmable organisms.

Neuralink: Merging Man and Machine

Elon Musk and Neuralink are carving a path into digitizing humanity, but many people are still in the dark about what Neuralink is. What is Neuralink? What does Neuralink do? In this video, I take a stab at how Neuralink’s brain machine interface is going to impact the world of medicine, and potentially every single person on the planet. Everyday, we are slowly bridging the gap between humans and artificial intelligence. If you think we’re living in the peak of the digital age, you have no idea what’s just around the corner.
