Global Goalscast: The global impact of artificial intelligence

The global impact of artificial intelligence | #TpromoCom #AI #ArtificialIntelligence #Global | As artificial intelligence becomes a bigger part of our lives, people across the globe are working to use the technology in ways that will have the most positive impact. In this edition of the Global Goalscast, hosts Edie Lush and Claudia Romo Edelman take a look at what AI means for sustainable development.


To understand how AI is being used across the globe, it’s important to get outside Silicon Valley. So Lush met with two experts in Africa to get their perspective. Nathalie Munyampenda is managing director of the Next Einstein Forum, an international science group that believes the next Einstein will be from Africa. They are doing everything they can through education and training to make that happen. She introduced Lush to Abdigani Diriye, who works at the IBM research lab in Nairobi. He captured the difference between how AI is often talked about in the global north and south.

The needed surge in artificial intelligence

The needed surge in artificial intelligence | #TpromoCom #AI #ArtificialIntelligence #Military | Presidents have ordered troop surges into Iraq and Afghanistan, and President Trump is applying that strategy in another way. His Feb. 11 executive order requires a surge in research and development of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. The order requires federal agencies to drive progress on AI through their own research and development and through investing in R&D in the private sector and academia. http://bit.ly/2C3yyv8

“Artificial intelligence” and “machine learning” are terms used interchangeably despite the vast difference between them. To analyze where we need to go, we first need to define the terms.

China has a business-like approach to terrorism

China has a business-like approach to terrorism | #TpromoCom #China #Terrorism #Policy | To get China on board for designating Masood Azhar in the UN, New Delhi needs to increase the costs for China.

In what can be seen as a small victory for India, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has issued a statement condemning the suicide bombing in Pulwama. More crucially, the statement, signed off by all permanent members of the Security Council, including China, names the Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM). As is widely known, China has been the primary obstacle in India’s efforts to get JeM chief Masood Azhar sanctioned by the United Nations under Resolution 1267. So, does the UNSC statement mark a veritable shift in China’s position?

For starters, China has not yet agreed to Azhar getting listed under Resolution 1267. The UNSC statement is good but carries no punitive implication against Azhar or Pakistan. This is not the first time China has signed off a statement condemning Pakistan-based terrorist groups. The September 2017 BRICS declaration in Xiamen mentioned both JeM and Lashkar-e-Taiba. It needs to be recalled that the Xiamen summit was preceded by the end of the 73-day stand-off between Indian and Chinese forces in Doklam. In fact, India used, according to some experts, a threat to boycott the Xiamen summit. And then in February 2018, China agreed to put Pakistan on the grey list of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an inter-governmental body that targets money laundering and terrorist financing. In return, other countries consented to China’s vice-presidency of FATF.

Video: The Tragedy of Wounded Knee

Video: The Tragedy of Wounded Knee | #TpromoCom #WMD #Western #Indian | In the Western Magazine Digest article entitled ‘The Battle of Wounded Knee Creek,’ there’s a video that provides an inside view into what happened at Wounded Knee. ‘The Tragedy of Wounded Knee (The Ghost Dance)’ tells of the tragic events that led up to the killing of more than 200 Sioux Indians, including innocent women and children. Such a dark blot on the historic pages of this nation. Such a tragedy to happen to any nation of such proud people. (scroll down)

“Our troop was simply cut to pieces by the brightly painted Sioux. The Savages made their break for freedom through our ranks wielding war clubs, knives, and hatchets and I doubt that a single member of our troop escaped their fury unscathed,” said Hugh McGinnis, the last known survivor as told to O.M. Glasgow in the faded but potent pages of True West magazine (March/April 1961).

Artificial Intelligence is on the Move – so Keep Up!

Artificial Intelligence is on the Move – so Keep Up! | #TpromoCom #AI #ArtificialIntelligence #Society | There’s considerable talk of putting AI’s in charge of high-profile, critical infrastructure. But is it wise to do so? Should the United States government have a say as to whether U.S. companies can retire their human workforce in order to utilize a non-human AI counterpart? Where’s that fine line between cost cutting and national security? Security eNews covers the AI issue from front to back.

Al’s View: There are those who claim that this is purely political in nature, that all IP-based cameras have backdoors in the software, that Cisco, Axis, and more  have experienced the same kinds of bugs in the rug. They also claim that making adjustments at the network level will solve the problem. The only thing missing here is the fact that those who have bugs in the rugs as a natural consequence of creating a new software have these problems by accident and the Chinese-owned camera manufacturers named in the legal briefs have introduced them by intent. How will this impact the security industry? We’ll see. –Al Colombo
