A.I. Business Sustainability

Following a chapter of my book. [see: “The Journey Towards Compassionate A.I.“] As the cliché goes: One thing is certain, and that is the uncertainty of the future.

Transparency in A.I.

We should strive to the highest degree of transparency in A.I., but not at the detriment of ourselves. Information transparency In conceptual information processing systems (frequently called A.I.), transparency is the showing of all data (information, concepts) that are used in decision making of any kind. In system-human interaction, the human may ask the system Read the full article…

Reinforcement Learning & Compassionate A.I.

This is rather abstract. There is an agent with a goal, a sensor, and an actor. Occasionally, the agent uses a model of the environment. There are rewards and one or more value functions that value the rewards. Maximizing the goal (through acting) based on rewards (through sensing) is reinforcement learning (R.L.). The agent’s policy Read the full article…

A.I., HR, Danger Ahead

Many categorizing HR techniques are controversial, and rightly so. There is little to no scientific background. Despite this, they keep being used. Why do people feel OK with this?

Human Vulnerability

In an A.I. future – and already now – the main vulnerability of the human race will be the result of our not seeing the most significant part of ourselves. I’m talking about non-conscious mental processing. Every feeling, every thought that arises within any person, including you, here, now, rises from somewhere, including a myriad Read the full article…

Artificial Intentionality

Intentionality – the fact of being deliberate or purposive (Oxford dictionary) – originates in the complexity of integrated information. Will A.I. ever show intentionality? According to me, A.I. will show intentionality rather soon Twenty years ago, I thought it would be around now (2020). Right now, I think it will be in 20 years from Read the full article…

Selling Data is Selling Soul

… if the data are personal and in a big data context. It’s like a Faustian deal, but Faust only sold his own soul. Where is Mephistopheles? Big data + A.I. = big knowledge Artificial Intelligence is already so powerful that it can turn much data (passive, unrelated) into knowledge (active, related). ‘Knowledge is power’ Read the full article…

Compassionate A.I.

Let me be very positive, envisioning a future in which A.I. will have as the main characteristic that which also is the best in human being.

A.I. Explainability versus ‘the Heart’

Researchers are moving towards bringing ‘heart’ into A.I. Thus, new ethical question are popping up. One of them concerns explainability. The heart cannot explain itself. “On ne voit bien qu’avec le cœur. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.” [Antoine de Saint-Exupéry] “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential Read the full article…

A.I. Is in the Patterns

And so is ‘intelligence’ in general. At least what we humanly call ‘intelligence’, mainly because we ourselves are so good at pattern-processing… But, why not? A.I. is not (exclusively) in the serial look-up Neither does our human brain function this way [see: “Human Brain: Giant Pattern Recognizer”]. A machine that performs look-ups and nothing but Read the full article…

What Is Morality to A.I.?

Agreed: it’s not even evident what ‘morality’ means to us. Soon comes A.I. Will it be ‘morally good’? Humans have a natural propensity towards morality. Whether we tend towards ‘good’ or ‘bad’, we have feelings and generally recognize these in others too, in humans and in animals. We share organic roots. We recognize suffering and Read the full article…

A.I. Will Be Singular

We tend to see human intelligence as what ‘intelligence’ is all about. Many humans each have intelligence. Of course, A.I. will not be bound by this. “If A.I. simulates human intelligence, is this then real intelligence, or only a simulation of intelligence?” This appears to be a merely philosophical question. It will soon be much Read the full article…

Ethical A.I.

A.I. is almost here. No doubt about it. Once mature, it will answer its own ethical questions. Right now, we can still give some guidance to this near future.

Will A.I. Have Its Own Feelings and Purpose?

Anno 2025: A.I. has made its entry and it’s here to stay. Human based? We generally think of ‘feelings’ as human-based. But that is just a historical artefact, a kind of convention.
