AI, security and confidence…

When it comes to the future of security, (which is less ‘future’ and more Now) it seems that those in the know are more likely to use AI to defend their business while those who aren’t will avoid it.

But can businesses turn a blind eye to using AI technology when the criminals are embracing it to get what they want?

AI Robotic cat to assist the elderly

Imagine the possibilities as well as using this bot as a digital assistant, it could be an excellent early warning system for the owner and authorities for healthcare and security!

AI could soon be running call centres

Google is developing their Duplex AI to be on the receiving end of the line in a call centre. But they’re not alone. Amazon, IBM, Microsoft and Cisco are also looking into this.

Do they take strong accents into consideration? I’m picturing a story told by stand up Kevin Bridges about trying to order cinema tickets using an automated phone system with a thick Glaswegian accent… hahaha

Developing A.I to I.D and count wild animals

The Uni of Wyoming with the help of Snapshot Serengeti is developing an AI that can identify and count species in the national park.

Hopefully the data will be made available to the park rangers in real time to help them battle poaching. It would certainly help tracking each species for the tourists, but only those shooting with a camera.

US Military to catch AI Deepfakes

The US Dept of Defense (excuse the US spelling) is going to fund research into AI generated Deepfake videos in an effort to catch the fakers.

However they’ve already admitted that it may be a pointless endeavour.

I wonder if they’re using any presidential press releases? It would explain Trump. Maybe the poor guy has never said any of those moronic things and hasn’t tried to start WWIII?
