Feeling uneasy: We should be weary of AI that can read our emotions

“Emotion recognition technology (ERT) is in fact a burgeoning multi-billion-dollar industry that aims to use AI to detect emotions from facial expressions. Yet the science behind emotion recognition systems is controversial: there are biases built into the systems. Many companies use ERT to test customer reactions to their products, from cereal to video games. “

How AI, robots, smartglasses are changing healthcare

“For a complex cancer surgery, London-based surgeon Dr Shafi Ahmed – renowned for performing the world’s first virtual reality operation and live-streaming it – sought help from Dr Shailesh Shrikhande, deputy director of Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai. They used a Microsoft Hololens to get connected remotely. The Hololens smartglasses uses sensors, advanced optics, and holographic processing to display information and blend with the real world. Dr Shrikhande says his virtual avatar entered the London operating room. “

Combining News Media and AI to Rapidly Identify Flooded Buildings

“Artificial intelligence (AI) has sped up the process of detecting flooded buildings immediately after a large-scale flood, allowing emergency personnel to direct their efforts efficiently. Now, researchers have created a machine learning (ML) model that uses news media photos to identify flooded buildings accurately within 24 hours of the disaster.”

AI in courts will aid decision-making for legal fraternity, litigants

“With impressive advances having been made in artificial intelligence (AI), the Indian judiciary has been early to adopt it too. Soon, AI will be tailored for the justice delivery system, playing a vital role in improving administrative efficiency in courts, and aiding in decision-making processes for lawyers, judges and litigants. But how could robots decide questions of law and extract the accurate position of law from a mass of precedents?”

Locus introduces ‘smart supply chain decision-making platform’

“…For shippers adapting on the fly, the end result has been a Band-Aid approach to getting things done and product moved. In many cases, optimization of the supply chain became an afterthought to getting product to the end consumer.

To combat this, Locus, a global B2B software-as-a-service company, has introduced Locus NodelQ, which the company describes as an end-to-end supply chain decision-making platform. NodelQ is “a smart supply chain decision-making platform that enables companies to perform end-to-end network and inventory optimization.” ”

Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Researchers’ algorithm designs soft robots that sense

“…MIT researchers have developed an algorithm to help engineers design soft robots that collect more useful information about their surroundings. The deep-learning algorithm suggests an optimized placement of sensors within the robot’s body, allowing it to better interact with its environment and complete assigned tasks. The advance is a step toward the automation of robot design. “

Researchers use AI to identify the pH of cancer cells

“National University of Singapore (NUS) researchers can now identify cancer cells by studying their acidity or pH levels using artificial intelligence technology.

This technique could be potentially useful in detecting cancer cells in tissue samples, either obtained from tumour biopsies or liquid biopsies, which are blood tests.”

Personalized tracking will replace third-party cookies on the internet

“…But the “magic” of cookies, as common as flour and sugar cookies, is about to change for something risky: personalized tracking, on an internet with more and more fences and fences. With cookies, advertisers collect demographic details about potential consumers,their location, the browser they use, and browsing history, allowing them to select the target audience for their ads. Custom tracking, on the other hand, will have all that information with the name and contact of its owners.”
