Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Work

Andy Chan is a Product Manager at Infinia ML, an artificial intelligence company that builds custom algorithms and software for Fortune 500 companies.

He talks about the 30 years AI winter and the false start of the promise of AI, after it was initially anticipated to be significant in the 1950s.

He cites autonomous cars as an example where safe performance is better than humans.

Chan also discusses how AI can lead to wide-scale unemployment. However, he also outlines three areas that humans excel: curiosity, communication and empathy.

Humans will be required to define new problem spaces and work with AI to solve them.

He discusses how gamers, hipsters and angel investors revitalized the AI movement of today.

AI and The Super Future

AI keynote speaker & NY Times Bestselling innovation author Jeremy Gutsche dives into artificial intelligence and the AI mechanized future in an AI talk that explores how artificial intelligence trends will change your future, particularly as you combine innovation in AI with robotics, interface, bio enhancement, 3d printing, mind reading, sustainability and thought control.

This AI speech is different than most of Jeremy’s innovation keynote speaker videos in that he dives into a lot more detail about a few specific AI-related trends, versus his normal style of storytelling. Compared to other AI keynote speakers, Jeremy takes a higher level view about how AI impacts a variety of different industries.

His AI & The Super Future keynote was the final keynote at Future Festival World Summit.

In this AI keynote, Jeremy also shares insight from his company’s artificial intelligence transformation. In short, he talks about some of the lessons learned from launching Trend Hunter AI and learning how to leverage your existing data.

8 Most Advanced AI Robots in the World Today

8. ASIMO BY HONDA During the 1980’s, Honda diverted from its usual product lines of cars, motorcycles, aircraft, and power equipment, and embarked on a “side project” in the Artificial Intelligence department. The final product was a humanoid robot called ASIMO, which stands for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility.

7. VALKYRIE Valkyrie is a 6-foot-2-inch-tall, 300-pound robot that was developed by NASA’s Johnson Space Center, in partnership with Texas A&M and the University of Texas. The robot was designed for the 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge, a contest that sought to create semi-autonomous ground robots for use in conditions that are deemed too hazardous for humans.

6. ATLAS Atlas is a bipedal humanoid robot that was created by the US-based engineering and robotics company Boston Dynamics, and which was revealed to the public in 2013. The project was funded and overseen by DARPA, an agency of the United States Department of Defense that is responsible for the development of emerging technology for use by the American military.

5. KENGORO Toward the end of 2017, researchers from the University of Tokyo reported the development of a robot named Kengoro, which can do sit-ups, push-ups, and back extensions, and otherwise move in shockingly human ways that are uncharacteristic of any previous robot. Most impressive, however, is the ability of Kengoro to sweat.

4. HRP-4 This lightweight humanoid robot was developed by Japanese bridge-building company Kawada Industries, in collaboration with the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. It weighs just 86 pounds, has better balance, and is leaner than previous models of the HRP-series robots, and can also respond to voice commands and track faces and objects. Even more impressively, the HRP-4 can stand on one leg and strike poses.

3. FURHAT Another robot that was designed with the goal of eventually replacing humans is Furhat, which was released in late 2018 and is claimed by its developer, Stockholm-based Furhat Robotics, to be the world’s most advanced social robotics platform. The company is so confident about their product, they believe it “bridges the gap between man and machine.”

2. NINA In 2013, engineers from the French National Centre for Scientific Research created Nina, a 1.02 meter (3.3 feet) tall humanoid robot that has been shaping its behavior ever since. Gerard Bailly, director of research at CNRS, explained in 2017 that Nina is continuously learning “how to behave in a socially acceptable manner.”

1. SOPHIA On October 25, 2017, an eerily life-like robot named Sophia became the first robot in the world to truly be recognized as a human, when the kingdom of Saudi Arabia granted her full citizenship.
