10 Charts That Will Change Your Perspective On Artificial Intelligence’s Growth - by @louiscolumbus
"Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) are the three most in-demand skills on Monster.com. Just two years ago NLP had been predicted to be the most in-demand skill for application developers creating new AI apps. In addition to skills creating AI apps, machine learning techniques, Python, Java, C++, experience with open source development environments, Spark, MATLAB, and Hadoop are the most in-demand skills.

What Role Should Colleges Play in Workplace Training?
"Data doesn’t support this either, according to a recent article in The Street. “When it comes to middle-skills jobs, Fuller found no difference in performance among people with and without a college degree. Yet employers still look for people with college degrees, who only make up about one-third of the entire workforce.” Fuller explains it with a fishing metaphor. “When you start up-credentialing your jobs you’re doing the equivalent of rowing your boat over to this tightly crowded part of the pond. Maybe there are fish elsewhere.”

e-voting and the blockchain
"With e-voting over the internet, many of the security assumptions above no longer exist. Yet, to ‘compete’ with paper-based voting, aspects of a vote must be verifiable.

In order for an e-voting system to be verifiable, a voter must be able to verify that his or her vote"

Blockchain Food Safety Alliance in China
"Walmart’s participation matters. It is already a world leader in global food safety. In China, it invests heavily in food safety research through the Walmart Food Safety and Collaboration Center. It has promoted food safety, both through its own supplier network and working with JD. In combination the two have leveraged JD’s expertise in the application of artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, big data and other new technologies for the protection of consumers."

The New Urban Crisis: Are Tech Startups Destroying Cities?
"Florida’s latest article could be seen as part of a long and ongoing apology. “I got wrong that the creative class could magically restore our cities, become a new middle class like my father’s, and we were going to live happily forever after,” Florida told an audience in Houston in October. “I could not have anticipated among all this urban growth and revival that there was a dark side to the urban creative revolution, a very deep dark side.”

‘Robot Tamer’ Reprograms Industrial Robots to Be Curious about Living Creatures
"Hoping to counter this somewhat irrational fear of robots, Gannon’s most recent collaboration (with the development team of Julián Sandoval, Kevyn McPhail and Ben Snell) is the creation of Mimus, an one-ton ABB IRB 6700 industrial robot that has been reprogrammed to respond to human interaction with an animal-like curiosity, currently on exhibition at London’s Design Museum."

Swarms of ‘Robotic Plankton’ Help Scientists Track Marine Wildlife, Oil Spills
"Despite their tiny size, plankton are a major food source for larger aquatic animals like whales and fish. Astonishingly, plankton also produce half of the planet’s oxygen. Despite their ecological importance, it’s not totally clear how these critters congregate and are pushed around by ocean currents, and how that affects their feeding and mating behaviors.

But that uncertainty is lifting, thanks to a swarm of underwater robots programmed to imitate the movements of plankton."

"Odds makers favored the human players 4- or 5- to 1 over AI Libratus. But they were wrong. Tuomas Sandholm, professor of computer science and graduate student Ph.D. student Noam Brown of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), the brains behind Libratus hovered around the casino, watching their brainchild steadily gain ground."

Predictive Policing is Real; It’s Just Not Very Effective
"“It makes us smarter. It puts us on the cutting edge of what’s going on in this country,” says George Turner, the chief of the Atlanta Police Department, in a video proudly displayed on the home page for PredPol, which produces predictive policing software.

But here’s one thing that even Phillip K. Dick couldn’t even predict: Predictive Policing doesn’t really work. At least not thus far."
