I am regularly asked to summarize my many posts. I thought it would be a good idea to publish on this blog, every Monday, some of the most relevant articles that I have already shared with you on my social networks.
Today I will share some of the most relevant articles about Artificial Intelligence and in what form you can find it in today’s life. I will also comment on the articles.

Is artificial intelligence about to transform the mammogram? The MIT AI expert Ms Barzilay had spent years researching the AI specialty known as natural-language processing, which applies algorithms to textual data. Those skills, she realized, might be put to a different use: predicting cancer. She decided to shift her research.That choice is now bearing fruit. Barzilay, 51, and her protégé have built an AI that seems able to predict with unprecedented accuracy whether a healthy person will get breast cancer, in an innovation that could seriously disrupt how we think about the disease.

Why synthetic data is such a hot topic in the artificial intelligence world. While A.I. can identify a weed called itchgrass in sunshine, it sometimes gets confused when it’s cloudy. To overcome that hurdle, John Deere trains its A.I. on synthetic photos—mathematical representations that only computers can understand—that show the weed under noonday sun, gray skies, and damp with rain. Have a read to this great article explaining why synthetic data is powerful for AI algorithms.

2022 Will See a Boom in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Media & Entertainment. In its new whitepaper, 70 Technology Trends That Will—and Will Not—Shape 2022, ABI Research analysts identify 35 trends that will shape the technology market and 35 others that, although attracting huge amounts of speculation and commentary, are less likely to move the needle over the next twelve months. “The fallout from COVID-19 prevention measures, the process of transitioning from pandemic to endemic disease, and global political tensions weigh heavily on the coming year’s fortunes. This whitepaper is a tool for our readers to help shape their understanding of the key critical trends that look set to materialize in 2022 as the world begins to emerge from the shadow of COVID-19. It also highlights those much-vaunted trends that are less likely to have meaningful impact in 2022,” says Stuart Carlaw, Chief Research Officer at ABI Research.

A new type of powerful artificial intelligence could make EU’s new law obsolete. Academics warn ultra-powerful foundation models that can be adapted to a range of tasks risk infecting all AI systems with biases, security flaws and opacity. The EU’s proposed AI act may not be up to mitigating this threat. The EU’s proposed artificial intelligence act fails to fully take into account the recent rise of an ultra-powerful new type of AI, meaning the legislation will rapidly become obsolete as the technology is deployed in novel and unexpected ways. Foundation models trained on gargantuan amounts of data by the world’s biggest tech companies, and then adapted to a wide range of tasks, are poised to become the infrastructure on which other applications are built.

The global artificial intelligence for IT operations platform market size is expected to reach USD 27.26 billion by 2028 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of 21.2% from 2021 to 2028. Rapid digital transformations in global business organizations have brought about increasingly complex datasets. Businesses spend a significant amount of time, cost, and effort on processing large volumes of data. IT operations are also on the edge of this transformation, wherein IT teams are required to manage complex datasets to sustain their business. Have a read, I was fascinated by this report and what it predicts.

Nickel oxide is a material that can ‘learn’ like animals and could help further artificial intelligence research. For over half a century, neuroscientists have studied sea slugs to understand basic animal learning. Two fundamental concepts of learning are habituation and sensitization. Habituation occurs when an organism’s response to a repeated stimulus continuously decreases. When researchers first touch a sea slug, its gills retract. But the more they touch the slug, the less it retracts its gills. Sensitization is an organism’s extreme reaction to a harmful or unexpected stimulus. If researchers then shock a sea slug, it will retract its gills much more dramatically than when it was merely touched. This is sensitization.

Making the UK an AI superpower. The British technology sector enjoyed its best year of investment yet, attracting £29.4 billion in 2021. So, why hasn’t the UK’s AI and tech scene made it to the same global superpower status that we see from China, Russia, and the US? We don’t need to wait for the results of the government’s recent National AI Strategy, to know that deeper change is needed to really propel the industry forward. To create an AI scene that can compete on the world stage, education, ambition, and innovation must be combined and accelerated. Have a read to understand the 3 tactics they need to put in place.
