The State of AI Ethics Report (June 2020)

It has never been more important that we keep a sharp eye out on the development of this field and how it is shaping our society and interactions with each other. With this inaugural edition of the State of AI Ethics we hope to bring forward the most important developments that caught our attention at the Montreal AI Ethics Institute this past quarter. Our goal is to help you navigate this ever-evolving field swiftly and allow you and your organization to make informed decisions.

Explaining Autonomous Driving by Learning End-to-End Visual Attention

In this work we propose to train an imitation learning based agent equipped with an attention model. The attention model allows us to understand what part of the image has been deemed most important. Interestingly, the use of attention also leads to superior performance in a standard benchmark using the CARLA driving simulator.

TechDispatch #1/2020: Contact Tracing with Mobile Applications

In public health, contact tracing is the process to identify individuals who have been in contact with infected persons. Proximity tracing with smartphone applications and sensors could support contact tracing. It involves processing of sensitive personal data.

A Human-Centered Evaluation of a Deep Learning System Deployed in Clinics for the Detection of Diabetic Retinopathy

This paper contributes the first human-centered observational study of a deep learning system deployed directly in clinical care with patients. Through field observations and interviews at eleven clinics across Thailand, we explored the expectations and realities that nurses encounter in bringing a deep learning model into their clinical practices. First, we outline typical eye-screening workflows and challenges that nurses experience when screening hundreds of patients. Then, we explore the expectations nurses have for an AI-assisted eye screening process. Next, we present a human-centered, observational study of the deep learning system used in clinical care, examining nurses’ experiences with the system, and the socio-environmental factors that impacted system performance. Finally, we conclude with a discussion around applications of HCI methods to the evaluation of deep learning algorithms in clinical environments.

A socio-technical framework for digital contact tracing

In their efforts to tackle the COVID-19 crisis, decision makers are considering the development and use of smartphone applications for contact tracing. Even though these applications differ in technology and methods, there is an increasing concern about their implications for privacy and human rights. Here we propose a framework to evaluate their suitability in terms of impact on the users, employed technology and governance methods.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Software as a Medical Device: discussion Paper and Request for Feedback

Artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies have the potential to transform health care by deriving new and important insights from the vast amount of data generated during the delivery of health care every day. Medical device manufacturers are using these technologies to innovate their products to better assist health care providers and improve patient care. The FDA is considering a total product lifecycle-based regulatory framework for these technologies.

Encrypted Traffic Analysis

This report explores the current state of affairs in Encrypted Traffic Analysis and in particular discusses research and methods in 6 key use cases; viz. application identification, network analytics, user information identification, detection of encrypted malware, file/device/website/location fingerprinting and DNS tunnelling detection.

The need for a system view to regulate artificial intelligence/machine learning-based software as medical device

FDA need to widen their scope from evaluating medical AI/ML-based products to assessing systems. This shift in perspective—from a product view to a system view—is central to maximizing the safety and efficacy of AI/ML in health care, but it also poses significant challenges for agencies like the FDA who are used to regulating products, not systems. We offer several suggestions for regulators to make this challenging but important transition

Defining Artificial Intelligence |🇪🇸 Definiendo Inteligencia Artificial

The starting point to develop the operational definition is the definition of AI adopted by the High Level Expert Group on artificial intelligence. To derive this operational definition we have followed a mixed methodology. On one hand, we apply natural language processing methods to a large set of AI literature. On the other hand, we carry out a qualitative analysis on 55 key documents including artificial intelligence definitions from three complementary perspectives: policy, research and industry.

Mathematics for Machine Learning

Machine learning uses tools from a variety of mathematical fields. This document is an attempt to provide a summary of the mathematical background needed.

Machine learning in Python: the top programming language

Phyton’s most notable points are:

-Growing popularity.
-Has a low entry barrier, has flexibility, is a platform independence, has readability, good visualization options, good community support and growing popularity.

WHITE PAPER On Artificial Intelligence – A European approach to excellence and trust

The purpose of this White Paper is to set out policy options on how to achieve these objectives. It does not address the development and use of AI for military purposes.The Commission invites Member States, other European institutions, and all stakeholders, including industry, social partners, civil society organisations, researchers, the public in general and any interested party, to react to the options and to contribute to the Commission’s future decision-making in this domain.

Cognitive Anthropomorphism of AI: How Humans and Computers Classify Images

Modern AI image classifiers have made impressive advances in recent years, but their performance often appears strange or violates expectations of users. This suggests humans engage in cognitive anthropomorphism: expecting AI to have the same nature as human intelligence. This mismatch presents an obstacle to appropriate human-AI interaction.

Cyber Attack Detection thanks to Machine Learning Algorithms

Cybersecurity attacks are growing both in frequency and sophistication over the years. This increasing sophistication and complexity call for more advancement and continuous innovation in defensive strategies. Traditional methods of intrusion detection and deep packet inspection, while still largely used
and recommended, are no longer sufficient to meet the demands of growing security threats.

He consider these points of view is important in terms of sustainable development. Link to the post at european AI alliance […]

Quickstart to ML with dabl. thi is an interesting new python package that makes supervised machinelearning easy

Machine Learning with dabl ( 0.1.8)

“dabl tries to reduce the turnaround time required for a quick baseline estimate of a supervised learning problem. It does so by automating the task of iterating through different techniques of data preprocessing, feature engineering, parameter tuning and model building to generate efficacious baseline models”.

A scalable pipeline for designing reconfigurable organisms

Most technologies are made from steel, concrete, chemicals, and plastics, which degrade over time and can produce harmful ecological and health side effects. It would thus be useful to build technologies using self-renewing and biocompatible materials, of which the ideal candidates are living systems themselves. Thus, we here present a method that designs completely biological machines from the ground up: computers automatically design new machines in simulation, and the best designs are then built by combining together different biological tissues. This suggests others may use this approach to design a variety of living machines to safely deliver drugs inside the human body, help with environmental remediation, or further broaden our understanding of the diverse forms and functions life may adopt.

Leer, asistir y comentar: una arquitectura profunda para la generación automática de comentarios

La generación automática de comentarios de noticias es una nueva plataforma para las técnicas de generación de lenguaje natural. En este documento, proponemos un procedimiento de “lectura, comentario y atención” para la generación de comentarios de noticias y formalizamos el procedimiento con una red de lectura y una red de generación. La red de lectura comprende un artículo de noticias y extrae algunos puntos importantes de él, luego la red de generación crea un comentario al atender los puntos discretos extraídos y el título de la noticia.
