Benson said the University of San Francisco has struggled to hire enough professors to teach AI. Being in the Bay Area, the combination of expensive home prices and the strong draw from industry is hard for practitioners to ignore when looking for work. The University of San Francisco gets 700 to 800 applications a year to the school’s machine learning master’s program, and takes less than 10%. They could potentially accept more students or expand offerings, but they don’t have the faculty to do it. … [Read more...] about Tech firms try to address the risks the AI race poses for research

Stand by your values, and stand up to authority when it’s wrong Perhaps it’s my legal background, but I’m a sucker for a person advocating for civil rights. In “The Measure of a Man” (Season 2, Episode 9), Picard defies authority to save Data from being disassembled. But he doesn’t defy his commanding officers behind their backs. He fights them in space court, arguing for his belief in the individual rights of all beings, regardless of “race.” To his commander, Picard says “Starfleet was founded to seek out new life. Well, there it sits waiting.” And, “Starfleet is not an organization that ignores its own regulations when they become inconvenient.” This dialogue is more relevant to today’s leaders than at any time in my lifetime. … [Read more...] about 5 things Star Trek’s Captain Picard can teach you about leadership
The company thinks it’s found a solution. It recently revealed its tiniest quantum chip yet–it’s so small that it can sit comfortably on a pencil eraser. The chip is powered by qubits that are each more than a thousand times smaller than a single strand of hair. In a typical superconducting quantum computer, qubits live in small loops of superconducting wire cooled to very low temperatures. Intel’s transistor-free chip relies on a more manageable, readily available, and quintessentially traditional component: silicon. Some researchers say the retro element that inspired an industry (and a metaphor, a competitive housing market, and a television show) might be key for the next phase of quantum computing. … [Read more...] about How old-school silicon could bring quantum computers to the masses

At the same time, poorly designed chatbots can pose an even bigger problem than conventional graphical web design, especially when they create confusion for users, or unintentionally obfuscate information, “Conversational interfaces can be powerful and effective when they are deployed in the right context and designed for the right use case,” says Heiko Waechter from Huge. “On the flip side, these interfaces can potentially get in the way of a user or be viewed as gimmicky or even frustrating when they are not thoughtfully designed.” … [Read more...] about Are Chatbots Really The Future Of Web Design?
