Should Artificial Intelligence Care for the Terminally Ill?

Should Artificial Intelligence Care for the Terminally Ill?

No comments

Caring for the terminally ill can be hard. It’s often those terminal patients who encounter medical errors or lack of support at the very end of their lives. Whether it is due to lack of resources, being understaffed, or simply an oversight, the end of life shouldn’t be tainted with such experiences.

The Prehistory of Artificial Intelligence

I am not an AI researcher by any means; on the other hand, I’ve been fascinated by the advancing field of computing since I was in high school in the era of mainframes and punched cards, and I’ve worked and played right in the middle of this field ever since; so I’ve had ample opportunity to give thought to that intriguing yet maddeningly elusive concept, or oxymoron, or design goal: Artificial Intelligence. In this post I attend the origins of the field; in future posts I’ll be looking at what happened next.

It has been discussed in 2017: should artificial intelligence have a seat in our judicial systems? It’s a scary concept for many people, mostly because it is unknown what will come of it. Surely, there are pros and cons to having artificial intelligence in our lives at all, let alone at the crux of our judicial system.

Artificial intelligence is taking over almost every industry, but what role will AI have in the Enterprise? Many people think that AI doesn’t have a place in every industry and a few years ago, they would have been right. Now, artificially intelligent machines are more clever than ever and are used everywhere from teaching to medicine.

In a recent interview, Elon Musk was asked how many hours a week a budding entrepreneur should invest into his or her business. His answer? No less than 100 hours a week. As an entrepreneur myself, I contemplated his answer seriously and passed it on to some experts and friends, in pursuit of their two cents.

Should AI Receive Individual Rights of Existence?

It’s easy to say artificial intelligence is more science than fiction. Experts even speculate that AI and robotics will replace humans in about one third of professions. That’s why when Amazon announced that it would not turn over Alexa recordings of a murder victim to authorities they raised a very important question: Should AI receive individual rights of existence?

Artificial intelligent music and soundtracks? Yeah, that’s a thing now. AI is slowly but steadily moving in on the music industry. From composing to collaborating with humans, AI is proving to be a huge player in music creation. While still in its beginning stages, Artificial Intelligence and music make quite a compelling duo….at least from what we can see so far.

Yesterday I ordered a pizza with a bot. Yes, a Pizza bot!

It made me think back about the changes the pizza ordering process made in the past 30 years, and its part of a huge movement in Pizza but more importantly in the discovery stage (search and advertising), our customer loyalty as well as what it could mean for privacy.
