The White House launched a new online portal–AI.gov–today to outline the Trump administration’s national artificial intelligence (AI) initiatives in a consolidated website. […]

Amid research and reports concerning the impact automation and artificial intelligence (AI) will have on the American workforce, the way in which technological change will endanger individuals’ jobs on a gendered basis remains largely unexamined.

Rep. William Hurd, R-Texas, stressed at IBM’s Think Gov event today that America needs to lead the world in developing 5G wireless networks and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, especially with China on the rise as a voracious international competitor, and said successful development and application of the two technologies are inextricably linked.

Federal money spending government

Although the Trump administration’s FY2020 budget proposal details a plan to broadly modernize the government, the fine lines in each department’s proposed funding show that the White House is more specifically geared toward researching and developing artificial intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, IT systems, and technological infrastructure.

It turns out a little knowledge can indeed be a dangerous thing.

That’s something the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) discovered when testing the value of artificial intelligence (AI) as an aid to battlefield decision-making. Researchers from ARL and the University of California, Santa Barbara, found in a series of test scenarios that people trust their own judgement more than they trust an AI’s advice. This was true even when an AI agent provided perfect guidance,  and when ignoring that advice led to negative results. People might trust an AI personal assistant to recommend a movie or the best way to drive to the theater, but not so much when they have skin–or their own skin–in the game.

Keeping up with hackers is no small task, particularly since some attacks can be sustained in near-perpetuity. No doubt, securing cyberspace is a daunting responsibility. But focusing on security and using emerging technologies can help us meet the challenges. In particular, when the cyber security personnel of cloud providers and cloud customers work closely together, […] […]
