Top List Country ranking in AI research 2020

BERLIN taz | Research on Artificial Intelligence (AI) has reached a peak and is currently booming like no other field of science. The number of scientific AI publications has increased on average by around 12 percent annually in the past five years (2013 to 2017), according to a study by the science publisher Elsevier . In the previous five years, growth was just under 5 percent. In 2017, more than 60,000 AI research papers were published worldwide, compared to just under 10,000 in 1998. The research location China has an increasingly large share in them. It is now 24 percent, ahead of the USA (17 percent) and behind Europe, which is the strongest AI research region with 30 percent, but decreasing: 20 years ago, it was 35 percent. In the country ranking, China is in third place ahead of the USA and rising star India. Germany comes sixth behind Japan. 600,000 documents and more than 700 AI-specific keywords from the four areas of research, education, technology, and media were evaluated for the Elsevier study. The combination of “extensive text mining and semantic literature analysis” is “currently the most comprehensive analysis of existing AI research,” said Enrico Motta, professor of knowledge technologies at the Open University in Great Britain and co-author of the report. “We basically …

Alexa’s human ears 2020 New Technology

New jobs at Amazon: Alexa’s human ears Temporary workers in Poland help to improve Alexa’s speech recognition. These jobs are not without problems.   Don’t be rude to Alexa – a real person might hear youPhoto: ap Did you ever get loud when Alexa didn’t do what you wanted? If it is only a device, you will think, but nothing there. Because, as several media reports show, Google , Apple and Amazon employ human employees to improve their speech recognition. They listen to and record transcriptions of the voice commands. So one or the other curse that you directed Alexa might have already been transcribed. This not only raises questions about data protection : the evaluation of records by people is another example of how work is changing through digitization and machine learning. The good news: digitization not only eats jobs, it also creates new ones. But what are these jobs? As research by the Welt am Sonntag revealed Amazon employs temporary workers * inside in Poland for the evaluation of the recordings. The company Randstad Poland had job vacancies online until Friday, in which Polish employees with German language skills were looked for on the mother tongue level. It is reasonable to assume that Amazon would like to save. This would of course not make Amazon the first company to …

Now In 2020 Federal government monitors AI

Artificial Intelligence Observatory:Federal government monitors AI The Ministry of Labor is planning an “AI observatory” to regulate artificial intelligence. She does not yet know exactly how that should work.   Artificial intelligence is used in self-driving carsPhoto: Volvo / dpa / picture alliance BERLIN taz | She is behind the automatic translation of texts and chatbots in customer service , learns as a speaking digital assistant and always causes debates: artificial intelligence (AI). The trendy term primarily means machine learning and self-learning algorithms , i.e. systems that identify patterns based on large data sets and solve problems independently. In order to investigate the effects of technology on society and the labor market, the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs (BMAS) has filled the first eight positions of an “AI observatory” in the think tank “Digital Labor Society ” in the BMAS. It should start this year. In itself, AI applications are nothing new in everyday life , but apparently they are for the BMAS. It suggests that “first develop a regulatory framework for AI”, as a spokeswoman puts it. Among other things, the aim is to clarify how data protection for employees and how people can be trained. Susanne Dehmel, member of the Legal and Security Executive Board of the Bitkom industry association , is generally positive about observing the use of AI …

Here Comes The Smart new world 2020

Artificial intelligence for Berlin: Smart new world Berlin is getting a center of excellence for artificial intelligence – making it one of the most important AI locations in Germany.   Man meets intelligent machinePhoto: picture alliance / Axel Heimken / dpa Berlin wants to become more intelligent, and at least the right institute for it has already been found: The “Berlin Institute for Foundhe Foundations of Learning and Data”, or Bifold for short, will in future combine two competence centers for artificial intelligence (AI). The focus is on research on data management and machine learning. “We need more scientists who are bilingual, i.e. machine learning and big data ‘speak’”, explains Klaus-Robert Müller, head of the Bifold. So far, the institutes had dealt with the issues separately. “Personally, I am convinced that there are opportunities in AI to change the world for the better,” said Federal Minister of Education and Research, Anja Karliczek (CDU), on Wednesday at the launch of the project at Salzufer in Charlottenburg. She wanted to make the 1920s a “decade for education, research, and innovation”. Germany should play a pioneering role worldwide. Karliczek believes that bifold aims to focus on research of AI systems along with ethical issues regarding it. …

In 2020 Europe dreams digitally

The EU wants to promote artificial intelligence and protect people from their effects. Both at the same time are difficult to do. The European Union wants to promote the use of future technologies. A new strategy is to make the EU “a global role model for the digital economy”. Brussels wants to promote the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and networked data. “We are convinced that digital change can advance our economies and help us find European solutions to global challenges,” said EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in Brussels on Wednesday. At the same time, the rights of citizens with regard to data protection should be respected. Von der Leyen wants to counter the technology pioneers USA and China with the new package.Where’s the intelligence here? Ursula von der Leyen is testing smart glasses at the University of BrusselsPhoto: Stephanie Lecocq / reuters The Commission President sets ambitious goals – and tackles an important topic. In international comparison, the EU is falling behind despite all the advances: The big data companies like Google are located in the USA, while in China digitalization is much more advanced in everyday life. “Europe is at a crossroads,” comments Achim Berg, President of the Bitkom industry association. The EU Commission is …

What is so difficult about craeating online courses?

What is so difficult about creating online courses? As someone who currently creates online course content for a living, I feel I can speak to the present topic. Let us say that you simply sit right down to watch a 10 to 15 minute online instructional video that has PowerPoint slides and a hands-on walkthrough/demo. When the editing is completed well, it gives the impression that the trainer recorded the video in “one shot”. And on top of that, you will think that the trainer just sat down, decided in their head what they need to demo, hit record, “one shot” it, then done. I will not to be guilty of this type of thinking. Creating a 10 to 15 min video can take you all day. First you would like to decide what you would like to show, create/test the hand-on walkthrough, prepare PowerPoint slides, and maybe write a script. Once you begin to record, Murphy’s law takes effect (if something can fail, it will). you will click on a wrong link within the video, a page might not load, you will stutter or mispronounce a word. This mean you want to redo sections or re-record audio. So, for …
