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.

Alexa’s human ears 2020 New Technology

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 …
