Jonathan Usuka on AI for Health

No development in tech is more hyped and freighted with expectation than artificial intelligence. Every industry is poised for AI driven transformation, but none more than health. What should we expect? But since AI only really gets its “I” if the software gets access to gigantic data sets, where will the data come from, and who will control it? What role will tech companies play, compared to those traditionally focused on health? Will AI alter the industry balance of power?   More

The Coming Age of Creative AI: From Roboadvisors to Roboartists

Data scientists are creating robo-artists out of digital neuron clusters called recurrent neural networks. They use machine learning and artificial intelligence to reverse engineer visual art, generating images that resemble Picassos, Van Goghs and Munchs. Now that our software progeny are transcending their humble beginnings they just might become real artists, amplifying and robotizing creativity.   More

The Re-Humanizing Impact of Robo-Advice

It’s not technology that’s dehumanizes us, but rather tedious tasks like personal finances themselves. And that's not just because working on them takes time out of our day. We’re simply not evolved to plan perfectly for the future. Automated advice is re-humanizing people. It’s giving them more time to spend what they want to be doing, and it’s based not just on their personal goals, but also on what fits into their lives.   More

Closing the Brain/Computer Divide

It sounds so very Star Trek: Computers that can read your mind, and act accordingly. Brain computer interfaces—computers that are able to assess and respond to your needs, wants, and feelings—have been in the works for years. But now we’re strikingly close to seeing them in the mainstream: within a few years, predicts Nick Bolton in a New York Times Bits post. The technology “was conceived to enable people with paralysis and other disabilities to interact with computers or control robotic arms, all by simply thinking about such actions.   More
