For each of our physical bodies, intimacies and experiences, we have several data bodies, too. Ranging from the websites we visit to the CCTV footage we meander into, these digital bodies are not simply extractive data points, but extensions of our very selves. They paint complex portraits of who we are — or at least, who companies believe us to be.
We should celebrate when machines execute and take over dull, repetitive jobs, Toby Walsh says. In this conversation, he speaks about the inherent biases in algorithms, holding tech companies accountable and how the fear about losing jobs to machines is misplaced
No amount of AI can create a Frida Kahlo or Lady Gaga; fashion delights us with its element of surprise, or when it cracks open a space for people’s own quirks to shine. An algorithm can do many things, but it can’t be you.
Draft e-commerce policy: Survey reveals reservation on govt's data handling prowess, bats for splitting up policy into two
Around 30 percent of the respondents said that they had no confidence at all in the government's capability in protecting their data
What we need is to send the Algorithms to the data, make them open, decentralize and democratize.
The crisis-management playbook is pretty simple: Get ahead of the story, update authorities and the public regularly, assume responsibility and take decisive action. Crisis-management experts say Facebook is 0-for-4.
A Trump-affiliated firm under scrutiny for inappropriately obtaining data on tens of millions of Facebook users created profiling algorithms that "took fake news to the next level," a former employee said.
Facebook's algorithms come under scrutiny for failure to check fake news; security chief defends algorithms
Facebook uses algorithms to determine everything from what you see and do not see in News Feed, to finding and removing other content like hate speech.
A team of 30 researchers at Microsoft labs in Redmond and Benguluru are busy developing a new class of machine-learning software embedded on tiny devices.
Oxford University Scientists have developed a new artificial intelligence system; the system uses a person's image and audio clip to create fake videos of the person.
The incident offers a case study in how Amazon's technological prowess is helping it dominate the retail competition.
Facebook is testing a second news feed with 'Rocket' icon; show users content that may interest them
Facebook often secretly tests out potential new features on a selected number of users and the button appears to be part of such a test.
Researchers and paralegals are increasingly being replaced by systems that can extract facts and conclusions from over a billion text documents a second.
Algorithms are a crucial cog in the mechanics of our digital world, but also a nosy minder of our personal lives and a subtle, even insidious influence on our behaviour.
Suggesting new Facebook friends to detecting skin cancers, here's how algorithms secretly run the show
Algorithms are being used -- experimentally -- to write news articles from raw data, while Donald Trump's presidential campaign was helped by behavioral marketers who used an algorithm to locate the highest concentrations of "persuadable voters."
Artificial intelligence or AI, has become pervasive in business in every industry where decision making is being fundamentally transformed by Thinking Machines.
Algorithms and bots are great at number crunching, but understanding a nuance in a news story - that's an altogether different skill.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) or machine learning can be used to help improve the accuracy of the diagnosis in lung diseases, finds a study. Machine learning utilises algorithms that can learn from and perform predictive data analysis.
Algorithms covers the story of Darpan Inani, Sai Krishna and Anant Kumar – the three extremely 'fluent' protagonists of the movie - over three years of them playing blind chess.
