34 Hard Truths You Should Know Before Becoming “Successful” @BenjaminPHardy #Thread
1. It’s Never As Good As You Think It Will Be.

Until you appreciate what you currently have, more won’t make your life better.
2. It’s Never As Bad As You Think It Will Be
The problem with dread & fear is that it holds people back from taking on big challenges. What you will find — no matter how big or small the challenge — is that u will adapt to it.When u consciously adapt to enormous stress, u evolve.

What #AI lacks, humans can fill in.
What humans lack, who will fill in.

Dual standards of our society and human thinking. #Ethics, #fairness and other values are regulated for AI but same values for humans are not regulated.

Time to do introspection.
If humans are unable to grasp the ethics, morale and fairness values due to deep diversity of humanity, how can we ensure ethical frameworks created for #AI will be universal.
Humans have failed to uphold the values of #ethic across history and geography. Humans have used the technology to gain control and become superior. The weaponisation of #ai is inevitable. We have seen parallel cases from field of #biotech and specific case of #crispr

In God we trust,
In #machine we believe,
In #data we live,

We are the next-generation human being.

Sadly we don't trust humans, we don't believe in them and we have almost stopped living.
Religion, folklore, mythology and history agrees on one interesting statement.

Humans were created in image of God.

Aren't we repeating the same thing with #AI? Aren't we creating AI in image of ourself?
Don't believe, look around see with what it is compared.
Sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic.

Same way, sufficiently advanced #AI is indistinguishable from #god.

Another set of questions are related to algorithms bias, fairness, and responsibilities.
#AI #Algorithms #bias #fair
Security and safety of consumer, product, partners and Algorithm is next set of questions. Again no satisfactory answers.
#Algorithms #AI #security
#antitrusthearing very interesting question, how will you ensure that biases of your employees are getting in to the algorithm?
In fact research has proven that algorithms are learning not from the data but the way data was labelled and annotated. #ai #bias

Some people teach you a precious lessons of life.
Thank them for that.
Forgive them or forget them but learn a lesson.
Externalising causes and attributing them to outside is common behaviour in difficult times.

In this time, you realise true nature of a person.

Accept it but don’t have expectations.

Follow your path because you know your consciences is clear.
Chin up.

Know that you have done best.

Move on to learn new lessons in life.

You cannot ignore.....
Our inability to understand and grasp something doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.

@InfoQ on #Microservices
microservice architectural pattern is best used for implementing the "breadth" of business functionality. Engineers should avoid building deep call chains of services, as this can increase the probability of failure 1/2
Deep chains in #Microservices can also increase the challenges of locating and diagnosing issues. Code libraries can often be used more effectively to implement "depth" within services.
Good advice for #architects dealing with issues. Thanks @InfoQ 2/2
#developers should avoid building highly-coupled distributed #systems. Instead, they should build "resilient federations" based on standard domain-driven design (DDD) federations of services for implementing #Microservices

1/n) #automl automated machine learning is shifting a field of #ml from #knowledge centric to compute centric.
It also providing much needed abstraction layer for #businessgrowth and #product folks to directly leverage power of ml without the need of Experts.
2/n) Also from business point of view, it shifts #MachineLearning from fixed cost (Experts, systems, data) to variable cost (pay per use automl). This will result in death nail of many ml teams across Enterprise.
3/n) On top of #automl, if you can integrate #DevOps then you will get modified version of #mlops which means a single engineer with sufficient knowledge and help of cloud can replace team of engineers and researchers. #DigitalTransformation

“Data is the new oil”, I have heard it & I don’t think it’s the right comparison.
What oil economy has done to earth, humanity? In short term it accelerated us at great cost.
#artificialintelligence #innovation #makinganimpact #deepthinking #humanity #likeabosch #AI #security
#Pollution, #GlobalWarming, economic disparity are the legacy of oil economy. We realised it after long time.

Do we want to take that short sighted approach with #AI?

#artificialintelligence #innovation #makinganimpact #deepthinking #humanity #likeabosch
#Biases, #fairness, #security, and #privacy are some of the issues already started showing up. Weaponisation of #AI is also happening at rapid rate and resulting in to rapid destruction of fundamentals of #humanity and #society.

[1/7] #AutoML (Automated Machine learning) is a new buzzword in the evolution of AI and ML. AutoML is the process of automating the end-to-end process of applying #machinelearning to real-world problems.
#AI #likeabosch #innovation #algorithms #machinelearning
[2/7] I recently read an interesting paper on the topic of #AutoML. form it, I created a taxonomy of automl parameters as a quick summary of papers, and at the top level it has three parts. #AI #likeabosch #innovation #algorithms #machinelearning

If #ai is source for future competition and promising to provide competitive advantages, have any one thought of how to protect it and sustain it. If you can't protect and sustain, what is the use of competitive advantage. #BusinessIntelligence #Competition
Today's race of #AI is more towards accuracy and we are pouring enough resources for same. When time for industrialisation come to reap benefits, #ai will face many challenges. Industrialisation is a very big opportunity.
#Innovation #technology
When Will #AI Exceed Human Performance?
This is the hot discussion across many domains. However very few credible answers and evidence are available. Here is the most credible answer from AI expert based on crowd sourced prediction from research Paper.

Just say no to #blockchain (for now) advises Gartner
"It's still not appropriate for the vast majority of enterprises to consider blockchain technology at its current level of maturity," said Gartner research fellow David Furlonger on Wednesday…
According to @Gartner_inc, #Blockchain technology has a number of issues that need to be addressed before enterprises can confidently roll it out at scale.
We need to take #blockchain #DLT carefully over the next few years until we reach a stronger point of robustness, both within the technology but also within the business itself.

Gartner Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2019 - Smarter With Gartner #GartnerSYM #EdgeComputing #QuantumComputing #blockchain #ai Image
Gartner Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends includes #blockchain #DLT as vertical under mesh and digital #ethics and #privacy as horizontal. However blockchain in its proper design and implementation can provide for ethics via governance and privacy via selective disclosure.
#QuantumComputing breaks first time in to Gartner Top 10 Strategic #Technology Trends. It's a reason to celebrate but we have to remain pragmatic considering challenges of the field especially quantum error, decoherence and qubits size.
