World Social Forum reboots in Montreal

Thu, 2016-08-18 10:42

Fifteen years after the World Social Forum (WSF) began with a huge gathering in Porto Alegre, Brazil, organisers are hoping to breathe new life into the anti-globalisation movement.

..."When I talk with Montrealers, no one is aware of this forum and so few people know about the WSF in general, whereas everyone knows Davos," said Henry Mintzberg, a professor at McGill University in Montreal, contrasting the WSF with its nemesis, the World Economic Form held each year in the posh Swiss Alps resort.

A new research trend? DARPA wants to fund XAI (Explainable Artificial Intelligence)

Thu, 2016-08-18 09:55

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming more and more integrated in our daily lives: AI agents might decide if you get a bank loan, or if your job application will ever reach human eyes. Not everyone is comfortable with this trend, since we don't always know exactly how the AI comes to its decision. AI learns from existing data to predict future data, but its inner workings can be a mystery even to the AI's programmers. That's a problem if the AI is making life or death decisions, as it would in missile systems or unmanned drones.
