Weekly A.I. Newsletter 10.06.2020

A weekly update with the most interesting articles about Artificial Intelligence

I read an endless number of articles every week about A.I., and I believe it is a good thing to collect them and share them with more people as possible.

But I like the idea of doing this in a “smart” way, so I’m using Artificial Intelligence (what else?) to automate the whole process of data collection, cleaning, and summarization of my favorite articles.

From today, I will share on Medium, a weekly list of the most relevant articles that I read during my spare time, and to keep me updated in my work.

If you want to find out how I’m automating this process, read it here:

Here you have a summary of the most relevant articles that I’ve read during this week about Artificial Intelligence:

The recent crisis which has pushed just about every company into digital transformation and virtual workspaces have only increased demand for A.I. skills.

Ethics Regulations for Artificial Intelligence.

Continental has developed a code of ethics for the use of such self-learning systems. The technology company is one of the pioneers of this industry — and is developing autonomous driving systems in the car industry as well as in other sectors such as agriculture, forestry, and construction, among others. Continental is responsible for ensuring that all its product developments and internal processes are in keeping with ethical standards. AI-based decision making must always be nondiscriminatory.

Artificial Intelligence In Education Transformation.

A.I. can be used as a tool in areas where teachers are limited Machine learning applications process information more quickly and in larger quantities than humans do. UNESCO noted that A.I. provides marginalized people and communities people with disabilities refugees those living in isolated communities with access to appropriate learning opportunities.

Eye, robot: Artificial intelligence dramatically improves the accuracy of the classic eye exams.

Researchers have developed an online vision test fueled by artificial intelligence A.I. that produces much more accurate diagnoses than the classic eye exam known as the Snellen chart. If perfected, the test could also help patients with eye diseases track their vision at home.

Artificial Intelligence Innovation in Financial Services.

Artificial intelligence technologies are permeating financial services sectors around the world. Financial service providers can leverage new and significant data sources to overcome obstacles such as the high cost of serving rural and low-income customers and establishing customer identity and creditworthiness that prevents many consumers from accessing financial products and services — a financial inclusion tool that firms can use to their advantage to reduce costs, improve function and reduce the risk for consumers and society at-least, according to the U.S. Bankers Association (USBA).
