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?

First Look at the AI Camera Systems at CES | WSJ

Two new smart systems use cameras, artificial intelligence and an assortment of sensors to keep watch over you—Patscan looks for threats in public spaces, while Eyeris monitors the driver and passengers in a car. WSJ’s Katherine Bindley visits CES to explores their advantages, as well as their privacy costs.

Neon, Samsung’s AI-powered avatar is world’s first ‘Artificial Human’

World’s first ‘Artificial Human’ – Neon – was introduced by Samsung backed Star Labs at CES 2020. This is the latest entry in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) world. Star Labs demonstrated six Neon avatars that can converse, sympathize like real human beings. Neon runs on propriety technology platform Core R3 which stands for Reality, Realtime and Responsiveness. Neon is the brainchild of CEO and President of Star Labs Pranav Mistry.

Love, Art and Stories: Decoded | The Age of A.I. (S1, E4)

What is love and what defines art? Humans have theorized, debated, and argued over these questions for centuries. As researchers become closer and closer to boiling these concepts down to a science, A.I. projects become closer to becoming alternatives for romantic companions and artists in their own right. The Age of A.I. is a 8 part documentary series hosted by Robert Downey Junior covering the ways Artifial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Neural Networks will change the world.

AI Supremacy 2020 | Rise of the Machines – “Super” Intelligence Quantum Computers Documentary

As we become ever more reliant on cellular phones and devices to aid in our everyday tasks; rapid development into new technologies and Artificial Intelligence is underway at an alarming rate.

Modern devices are now specifically designed to interact with us in ways that mimic a real human being. Applications such as “Siri” and “google-cast” are providing the user with a human-like interaction experience. These companies are Creating Artificially intelligent machines. Machines exhibiting cognitive behavior, with human-like intelligence.

In this documentary we explore the race to perfect AI machinery – researchers believe that very soon a “singularity” will be created. A machine that rises beyond human control. Something uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in catastrophic changes to human civilization.

Could it be possible that humanity will soon arrive at a moment in history when artificial intelligence outsmarts human beings? Are Hollywood movies like “The Terminator”, “i-Robot” and “space odyssey 2001” an unintentional warning that this scenario could happen within our not so distant future?
