PC World: Microsoft adds AI capabilities to PowerApps and Flow to automate business tasks

PC World: Microsoft adds AI capabilities to PowerApps and Flow to automate business tasks. “Microsoft said Monday that it’s adding intelligence to its Microsoft Flow application as well as PowerApps, giving those apps to see the world—quite literally, in some cases. While end users are quite familiar with the standard Office apps—Excel, PowerPoint, and Word—Microsoft is trying to encourage end users to adopt PowerApps and Flow.”

Ubergizmo: Training AI Models Might Be Less Environmentally-Friendly Than We Think

Ubergizmo: Training AI Models Might Be Less Environmentally-Friendly Than We Think. “Now, AI is without doubt part of our future where we have seen how it can be used in a variety of industries, such as health, where it could be used to detect things a human doctor might miss. However, as beneficial as AI could be, it seems that training AI models might be quite bad for our environment.”

The Next Web: New algorithm allows researchers to change what people say on video by editing transcript

The Next Web: New algorithm allows researchers to change what people say on video by editing transcript. “For better or worse, it’s getting easier than ever to doctor video footage, and the latest development in this field is as scary as it is impressive. A new algorithm developed by researchers from Stanford University, Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Princeton University, and Adobe makes it possible to alter human speech in a video, just by changing the text in its transcript.”

Harvard Business Review: When AI Becomes an Everyday Technology

Harvard Business Review: When AI Becomes an Everyday Technology. “Deployed AI is about more than engineering — it’s about a shared vision. Engineering expertise will always play a role in AI. But in the age of deployed AI, our most important asset will be the vision that guides that expertise. What problems can AI solve, and what kind of data might the solution require? By what metrics will success be measured? And how can the result be integrated most effectively with the people and processes already in place in any given business? These are broad, organizational questions, and their answers won’t come from any single stakeholder. Every voice can contribute to deployed AI — technical and non-technical alike — and it’s vital that businesses establish workflows that empower everyone to play a role.”

Stanford: Stanford researchers develop artificial intelligence tool to help detect brain aneurysms

Stanford: Stanford researchers develop artificial intelligence tool to help detect brain aneurysms. “Doctors could soon get some help from an artificial intelligence tool when diagnosing brain aneurysms – bulges in blood vessels in the brain that can leak or burst open, potentially leading to stroke, brain damage or death.”

CNET: Microsoft launches first AI hub to reverse talent flow to the coasts and bring non-PhDs into AI jobs

CNET: Microsoft launches first AI hub to reverse talent flow to the coasts and bring non-PhDs into AI jobs. “On Friday, the company announced that it’ll open its ‘first regional hub for AI’ in Louisville, Kentucky. The project will be an experiment to upskill people on how to work alongside AI and robots, and it’ll create a learning lab to prepare communities for the years ahead when AI and automation are going to disrupt the economy and the workforce.”
