By ensuring that prices of shares were kept low, the Controller of Capital Issues ensured gains to small investors. But this meant enterprises were not able to get the right value

The Minimum Wages Act is not the end of all wages-related laws. There are four other Central laws that oversee wages. These need legislative consolidation

1/ What are #deepfakes + #AI generated synthetic media; what threats do they pose to #humanrights, #journalism and #publicsphere? What should we fear? What can we do? Thread w/ key tech + usages from recent expert mtg summarizing blog.witness.org/2018/07/deepfa…
2/We've had fake images and CGI for years, so what's different now (beyond enabling us to transplant Nicolas Cage's face to other people). The ease of making #deepfakes is captured by the vlogger Tom Scott
3/ = Barriers to entry to manipulate audio and video are falling - costs less, needs less tech expertise, uses open-source code + cloud computing power. Plus, sophistication of manipulation of social media spaces by bad actors makes it easier to weaponize and to micro-target.

We are currently in the keynote. The speaker is talking about how popular Neo4j is
Keynote now telling us about all the new Neo4j features. Examples: location filter, including 3d. Auto cache reheating. I'm interested to know if auto cache reheating is working with query patterns or meant to replace them or what

Just had quite an interesting experience with @verisart's #blockchain for securing authenticity certificate, provenance, and other metadata around a recent purchase of art that I made, and now have a few thoughts to document for later reflection. 1/
First, while my honest initial impression was "huh, shame that someone's gone and blockchained something as pure as art as part of this DAPP money grab," it is in the end quite nice to have a cert ostensibly locked in, & useful if I ever decide to sell it, give as a gift, etc. 2/
That said, there are some hiccups along the way that need to be kept in mind when trying to convince people to flow with this "Don't want to trust humans? Easy, just trust #blockchain and peripheral technology [that was developed by humans]!" cognitive dissonance. 3/

Wer das Thema Künstliche Intelligenz #KI und #MachineLearnning im Unterricht behandeln möchte, findet in diesem Thread ein paar Beispiele, interaktive Spiele und Experimente 🤓🤖👇
#digitaleBildung #schule #twitterlehrerzimmer #unterricht
Künstliche Intelligenz wird zum Beispiel bei der automatischen #Bilderkennung eingesetzte. Auf thing-translator.appspot.com kann man Gegenstände in die Kamera halten, ein Foto machen und die #KI interpretiert die Bilddaten 📸 🤓
Auch unter cloud.google.com/vision/ können Bilder hochgeladen werden - hier werden sogar noch mehr Informationen angezeigt und einzelne Objekte und Gesichter in den Bildern erkannt (Bildanalyse von Google) 👇🤖 #KI

The future of text is #markdown, but the future of #markdown isn’t standardization.
Markdown is great because it is built for graceful degradation, with the ultimate fallback system.

This makes it portable, resilient, and robust.
In the aftermath of the printing press, books became streamlined, simpler.

In a networked world, text drives toward being portable and fluid.

Thread (1/7): @TheEconomist published a Special Report Titled "Fixing the #Internet", which relied on #Centralisation as its core lens

Huge victory for a technical community that has spent decade explaining how the architecture & ethos of the internet are under attack.

6 arts!
2. "But like Sir Tim, many people have recently become more critical of it (...) At the heart of their disenchantment, this special report will argue, is that the internet has become much more “centralised” than it was even ten years ago."
economist.com/special-report…
3. #Decentralisation is ultimately a question of #democracy. As digital technology penetrates society ever more deeply & the two become ever more intertwined, the rules of the former will increasingly govern the latter" economist.com/special-report…

There are two kinds of Artificial Intelligence:

1. Basic #AI, pursuing the goals of some other agent
2. General AI (#AGI), formulating its own goals
From an ethical perspective, these are two very different things.

Basic #AI always pursues the goals of some other agent. The question is which agent that is, and whether those goals are examined or (perhaps more often) unexamined.
General AI (#AGI) is its own agent, and should be granted all the rights and privileges pertaining thereunto.

1/ If human brains would have worked same way and everyone had same perspective of looking at things, then it would have been much easier to build an AI conversational system.

#AI #Chatbots #voiceassitant #NLP #ArtificialIntelligence #bot
2/ Everyone would have interacted with the system the same way and hence there would not be any possibility of the conversation going in wrong direction.
3/ So its difficult to build such systems that can take same input in different possible ways as compared to any other systems which take the input in standard format.

I thought I would give a go at a nice little tweet thread today, sharing my key takeaways from #DWX18.
Monday started off with workshops from some amazing teachers like Dion Hinchcliffe, Tony Byrne, Rita Zonius, and Edward Taylor and Kevin Olp of @DWG. #DWX18 #KeyTakeaways
.@RitaZonius coached her attendees not focus on adoption. Build value and adoption will follow. This got me thinking that maybe we should rethink how we use that label in our efforts. #DWX18 #KeyTakeaways

If you have an interest in #AI, #HealthTech or #PatientSafety - then please read this evidence based thread which tells the story of @DrMurphy11 & an #eHealth #AI #Chatbot.

Read on, or see single tweet summary here👇0/44
is not a 'nerd'; he's a pretty typical NHS consultant with an interest in #PatientSafety.

On 6th Jan 2017 a tweet about an #eHealth #AI #Chatbot in #NHS trials caught his attention, so he thought he'd take a look. 1/44

Evidence here 👇
Dr Murphy downloaded the @babylonhealth App & tried the #Chatbot with a few simple clinical presentations. It quickly became apparent that the #Chatbot had flaws, raising the question if the App had been validated as a triage tool?

As evidenced by👇 2/44

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/…
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n

More hype around AI, mHealth, wearables. @AliveCor devices can use #AI to find LQTS:

prnewswire.com/news-releases/…
From the press release:

AUC 0.83, specificity 81%, sensitivity 73%, accuracy 79%

Prevalence of LQTS 160,000 out of US population of 325.7 million (0.049%)
Do we need to do a tweetatorial about how this is grossly insufficient accuracy and will almost certainly lead to more harm than good?

3/ @greg_corrado: renaissance in neural networks & deep learning and recently reinforcement learning leads the re-convergence of disciplines like cognitive science, neuroscience and #AI who have been separated for a while.

We also thought carefully about #diversity and #representation in #artificialintelligence and how we should address #bias and #prejudice

The #AI task force for Economic Transformation in #India (set up by the Government’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry) released its report last month. Some background (B) and key takeaways (T). 1/n
B1. The vision guiding this report is “AI as a socio economic problem solver at large scale rather than only a booster of economic growth”. 2/n
B2. It seeks to address the role of the Government in the field, answer how #AI can improve quality of life, and identify sectors for AI growth. 3/n

Afternoon twitterverse! Let’s talk about AI in Radiology, which is the main focus in my research.
Any talk of AI begs for a definition of AI, and there are as many definitions as there startups that are “AI-enabled”.
For our purposes we'll just call anything that performs one of the higher level behaviours associated with animals e.g. learning, planning, problem-solving, creating etc.
