Artificial Intelligence VS Humans – What the Experts Say

Resistance is futile, welcome to AI, are the robots are taking over?

Resistance is futile, welcome to AI, are the robots are taking over?

With a heading like that, who couldn’t go to that event! Great night at Meetup with North Sydney Innovation Network (NSIN) at @Workinc. Hosted by Beath Carey and John Bell of Pat Inc, Fang Chen of CSIRO’s Data61 Alumni Network, Richard Kimber of Daisee and David Burt of CSIRO.

My take out from the discussion?

Artificial intelligence is such a big subject and it’s taken intense learning and focus over the last 6 months for me to be able to just join the conversation in order to understand what is happening.  That is one of the issues that the experts agree, education and more conversation around AI and it’s impact on our society is a must. Ethics is a touchy subject and it was no exception tonight, even at the mention of our health records being in one place, sparked a slightly heated debate.John Ball from Pat Inc’s, shared his solution with his organisation Pat Inc, uses proper allocated meaning instead of data learning meaning, which seems the obvious solution – so here’s to their business getting the funding to finish and make the world a better place (lol).Richard Kimber, CEO of Daisee and former MD of Google was extremely informative. He has a practical point of view and refreshingly honest about the state of affairs. His knowledge is vast in this area and a great leader to have on as many boards as I hope he can be on.

Yes, Google is listening and taking over the world HOWEVER, there will be a backlash globally but what that is, we’ll wait and see.  Duck Duck Go is a new search engine stating that ‘they don’t track you’. I’ll give it a go! He spoke how Australia is way behind (of course – here in our bubble), Europe is ahead and actively looking at ways to manage privacy, the collection and use of data and the social impact. He mentioned the GDPR has struck fear in data collection and how you get that data is going to continue to be important, a mention how BITCOIN will be a good way to track that source. He also pointed out that technology can grab your fingerprint without even signing up to sites, it’s over everything you do.

Fang was wonderful to listen to with her upbeat attitude and enthusiasm around data collection and research. She laughed at her distraction for a good handbag or pair of shoes when being offered it by a tailored ad used by your constant data injection, showing that her ability to be ‘human’ is a key factor in any AI role today – I was pleased to see that part of her.

Richard talked about how jobs such as accounting, lawyers, radiology would be redundant where as creative and innovate roles will be least likely (yes, we know this to be true!)

Fang talked about that she felt the data was sexist, because the data has human bias and this is where machine learning can help bring some equanimity to future creations – we hope.

I’ve listed below the panelists.
