Top tweets on artificial intelligence in July 2020
1. John Carmack’s tweet on GPT-3 AI language model
John Carmack, Consulting CTO of Oculus VR, tweeted on how OpenAI’s new language generator Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 (GPT-3) is trained on massive internet text dumps. The data is, however, assumed to be identically distributed and independent.
Carmack noted that by adding time information, AI models such as GPT-3 can write content for reddit or even twitter trends.
Big AI models like GPT-3 train on massive internet text dumps, but the data is assumed to be independent and identically distributed. Incorporating time information for a decade of data might allow them to start writing tomorrow's reddit or twitter trends.

2. Kate Crawford’s tweet on use of AI tools in patient care
Kate Crawford, co-founder of the research institute AI Now Institute, shared an article on the use of AI systems in personal care without the consent of a patient. The article details how frontline physicians are using AI to make discharge planning decisions.
Patients, however, are not being informed on the use of AI in making such decisions. The article noted that trust and uptake of AI and machine learning may fall if patients discovered the ways in which these technologies are being used.
'…trust in AI and machine learning could plummet if patients “were to find out, after the fact, that there’s a rash of this being used without anyone ever telling them.”
“That’s a scary thing if you think this is the way the future is going to go.”https://t.co/ovo7xu8h5m

4. Pascal Bornet’s tweet on using sky tractors to plant trees
Pascal Bornet, an official member of the Forbes Technology Council, shared a video from the World Economic Forum (WEF) on planting of trees using drones. The video shows how pods containing seeds and other nutrients are planted by drones 150 times faster than traditional methods.
The drones use automation and digital intelligence to plant the seeds with accuracy and speed. Data on the location and species of seeds is fed into the drone, which plants them where needed. The use of drones can help in re-greening the earth and restoring eco-systems.

5. Terence Leung’s tweet on intelligent speed assistance technology
Terence Leung, senior director at Blue Yonder, a digital supply chain platform provider, shared a video from the WEF on intelligent speed assistance device, which can reduce road fatalities by 30% and carbon emissions by 8%.
By 2022, all new cars in Europe are expected to be fitted with the new device, which uses GPS and sign recognition cameras to automatically limit speed. Drivers will still be able to override the device by using accelerator. The device is one of the safety measures planned to be implemented apart from automated emergency braking and better visibility for drivers. The safety measures still need approval from the European parliament.
Looking forward: intelligent speed control is coming to the #EU to reduce accidents & fatalities. #IoT #AI #MLMT @wef @MikeQuindazzicc @mvollmer1 @FrRonconi @SpirosMargaris @enricomolinari @antgrasso @ChuckDBrooks @Ronald_vanLoon @rwang0 @kashthefuturistpic.twitter.com/g0lkSuDie6

6. Evan Kristel’s tweet on Sunflower’s intruder alert security system
Evan Kristel, chief digital evangelist and co-founder at eVira Health, shared a video on new security system developed by Sunflower Labs to protect homes. The system uses a drone to plant sensors in garden lights, which uses AI algorithm to understand the daily activities at home.
Whenever the lights sense unusual motion, the device immediately deploys a drone to check around the home. The drone can cover four hectares in 15 minutes and detect obstacles apart from taking infrared images. It can automatically recharge on a weatherproof charging station.

7. Ronald van Loon’s tweet on Max-AI robot
Ronald van Loon, a principal analyst and CEO of Intelligent World, shared a video on Max-AI, a robot developed by Bulk Handling Systems, a manufacturer of sorting and handling systems. The robot is equipped with a vision system to sort, process and recover recyclable items. It uses AI technology to process video images and identify objects similar to humans.
The technology used in the robot is inspired from deep learning technology similar to the human brain. The robot can learn and adapt to new conditions to improve production and efficiency.

10. Nige Willson’s tweet on building future of work with AI
Nige Willson, a speaker, influencer and advisor on AI and innovation, shared an article on how AI technology can be used to solve the challenges in world of work. The article notes that companies that are focused on improving employee experience are more profitable than companies that focus on customer experience.
Approximately 85% of employees spend most of the time on repetitive tasks, manual, data collection, and data entry, according to a survey by Gallup, analytics and advisory company. AI provides an opportunity to enhance employee experience by analysing opportunities to make work better and automating routine tasks. It can also help in connecting employees, companies and other players in the industry.
