Probably won't make it all the way through the last session, need to go back to the hotel and nurse my cold :-/ hanging out though in the back to see how Emma Kendrew is doing to talk about. #m3london
As usual, @Accenture seems clued in about AI. Kendrew talking about how people don't know they are using AI when they use google, spotify, etc. Whoops, now talking about it "as a coworker", I obviously object to that language!
Kendrew hows predictions by 2020 of 85% of customer interaction by chatbot, 2025 a government will ban human driven vehicles, next decade "an AI" will make a blockbuster film. [Well, I doubt all those predictions! RBS found chatbots included calls to the banks' humans!]

#Tweetorial on #Diagnostics and #Screening interpretation.
An otherwise healthy 40 year old woman comes to you after reading on the internet about a terrible disease that one in a thousand women get, and a highly accurate test that can save her life.
The test is over 99% accurate in people with the disease. For those without disease, the test is only wrong 5% of the time.

You order this test and it comes back positive. The woman anxiously asks you, do I have the disease? What is the chance this woman has the disease?
Assuming they weren't immediately fooled by the "test is only wrong 5 % of the time," most I've asked correctly recognize the stats provided are Sensitivity = 99% and Specificity = 95%, and that the objective is to determine the Positive Predictive Value.

This interview was very enlightening to watch, and it was interesting to see the undertones about the AI/ BCI/ Neuralink intel.

Joe to Elon: “I’m glad you as a robot like humanity, so you don’t kill us and eat us.”
Does Elon Musk already have a Brain Computer Interface #BCI #AI chip?! Is that why he’s so smart and can’t sleep?

What they don’t get into much here is how this technology is the true Mark of the Beast and how it could be used to fully enslave all of humanity. Ultimate #MKultra.

a wonky thread about what it should mean for social media companies to be transparent. my last report to the @UNHumanRights Council discusses: freedex.org/a-human-rights… #transparency can be so vague as to be meaningless, so some [long] thoughts follow
let me just emphasize that i drew these principles from human rights law (& work of some great thinkers), not out of thin air. sure, that law applies to states, but companies also have responsibility not to interfere w/users' rights.
one aspect of transparency is clarity in the rules (community stds, guidelines, etc). they are broad and general, tho companies are trying to do better, it's true.

Yes, as I've noted before, you can pull all the "re-issued" credentials, then check for any preceding ID.

But that's just a start.

A thread for the "#software is not political" crowd. Whether you like it or not, all software is political because technology AFFECTS PEOPLE. If you came to #tech thinking you'd escape having to think about people, #politics, and society - you were mistaken. I'll show you why...
Before we start, remember this as you read. Just because YOU think the answer to any of these issues is clear-cut, it doesn't mean that issue is not political.

There are people who take the OPPOSITE position with just as much conviction, and they think it's clear-cut too.
Also - as an engineer, a developer or designer - if you choose to ignore the political and societal implications of your #technology, YOU HAVE MADE A POLITICAL CHOICE.

Today in pulp I take a look at #robots! What do they do? What do they want? And what do they think of Elon Musk?

Let's see...
Karel Čapek famously coined the word 'robot' in his 1920 play "R.U.R."

Fun fact: in 1938 R.U.R. became the first TV science fiction programme ever broadcast by the BBC.
However prototype #robots have been around for decades. Here's one from 1909, although it doesn't work. Or shave.

Panelists of the #montreal #AI #ecoystem @froginthevalley @marktmaclean @MILAMontreal @rllabmcgill @NarjesBoufaden @PhilBeaudoin of @SymposiumAi, we need to talk. I’m bringing other AI researchers (from Montreal or not) into the discussion because I feel it’s very important. 1/15
It relates to more than just Montreal, but the general AI ecosystem: @atg_abhishek, @goodfellow_ian, @fchollet, @hardmaru, @element_ai, @Montreal_IA, @johnolafenwa, @MTLINTL, @math_rachel, @mtlaiethics, @AndrewYNg. 2/15
I didn't get the chance to make a comment yesterday as time was over. There was a lot of talk about how great the ecosystem is great except for some minor communications flaws, but what nobody even mentioned is how incredibly closed this ecosystem is to outsiders. 3/15

It's art up for review in opinions, of course I'm going to gravitate towards something shared with interest, when he didn't say a word for 2 days! Why was he there? #opendata #smartcities #bigdata #ai
I went through every single video he released in hip hop to understand him not saying a word. Easy to work out, he's a very bitter man who has absorbed all his parents immigrant opinions at home #opendata #smartcities #bigdata #ai
His parents are not middle class anywhere & neither is he #opendata #smartcities #bigdata #ai

1. Let's talk about trinary ( #ternary ) and #IOTA . (Long rant, maybe better suited for a blog entry. Oh well, whatever.)
2. In my many discussions with many different people about #IOTA , ternary is I think the most controversial aspect of the tech. Many people consider it genuine lunacy, a sign that #IOTA is just a scam cryptocurrency.
3. And I'll be honest with you: when I first encountered ternary in #IOTA , I went "What the f*** is this sh**? Numerology?"

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.

OK people. I'm live tweeting @neo4j's #Chicago #GraphTour event today.
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
