Artificial intelligence is being used more rapidly than ever in all aspects of our lives, including commerce and business. Is it going to be driven by commercial interests or can we manage it for the greater good of society? Professor David De Cremer from the National University of Singapore believes that AI should be tempered with humanity.
Hello, Professor De Cremer. We appreciate you taking the time to speak with us. To help us get oriented, let's start with a simple question. Although artificial intelligence is a term we all use a lot, our understandings of what it means can vary when we are challenged. What is artificial intelligence for you? What is the relationship between AI, algorithms, and artificial intelligence?
It is important to start with a clear definition. I have noticed that executives who answer questions like "Have you adopted AI?" refer to many other examples that can technically not be considered AI. There is still much confusion about AI and how it can best be used.
AI can be described as computers that display actions and make decisions that appear intelligent. Artificial intelligence is simply a machine that can display these actions and decisions.
My definition of AI is computers that display actions and make decisions that appear intelligent. Artificial intelligence is simply a machine that can display these actions and decisions. Although it is not human intelligence, it mimics or models it. Computer scientists create algorithms that are compatible with certain calculative rules in order to make predictions. In supervised learning, the prediction model is usually based on training data. Then, it can be used to predict new situations (i.e. New data. AI, in its essence is a elegantly constructed version of statistics (although it can be confusing to laypeople).
Can you tell us a bit about your background at the National University of Singapore Business School Center on AI Technology For Humankind? What drove the establishment of the Centre?
AiTH believes that AI technology development must be understood in context of collaboration and co-creation. Our goal is to explore, investigate, and develop deep insights into the ways in which AI technology should be developed with human-centred decisions, promoting creativity, happiness, and serving and enhancing our human identity. Although this may seem a little abstract, the main idea is that AI technology is rapidly evolving and there are many exciting, and sometimes even impossible, possibilities for its use. It is important to examine and reflect on how AI can be used in ways that benefit humanity. To put it another way, AI adoption in organisations and societies must be driven by human-centred concerns. We don't worry about whether AI or automation could pose a threat to humanity, since these horror stories are unlikely to become a reality anytime soon. Instead, our center focuses on whether AI and automation will improve the performance, well-being and effectiveness of humans. We need to strike the right balance between the potential benefits and the human values that these advancements bring to our humanity. We are concerned that AI could be adopted in a mindless manner without reflecting on the implications. This could lead to a slippery slope where our work, interaction and management of societies will change to match the machine's. If this happens, society will become more suited to machines than it is for humans. This would mean that humans will no longer be the ones who serve the machines' needs.
A key driver was the fact that I observed that AI employment was becoming more ethically and humanely conscious in the West. Everywhere you looked, from Silicon Valley tech entrepreneurs to risk centre academics, there were more questions about the link between increasing machine use and human decline. These rather existential questions were answered in Asia, but it was quiet. China is the dominant country in Asia and has an obvious focus on AI technology. However, the way they view governance, ethics, and the use of technology to improve human welfare is very different from the West. The rest of Asia has not paid much attention to this issue so far, although it is rapidly changing. Singapore is often praised as the "place where East meets West", so it seems like the ideal place to establish a center like ours where we can ask existential questions that will occupy the entire world. These questions are also being asked by many Asian companies. I believe that our center will help to accelerate demand for human-centred development in Asia and the adoption AI technologies in the region.
In your book "Leadership by Algorithm", you address a range of issues related to artificial intelligence systems' increasing presence in society. You could expand on the theme of your book, "Leadership by Algorithm", which is titled "Who leads and follows in the AI Era."
For women's health, tips for heart, mind, and body - https://www.mpolska24.pl/blog/for-womens-health-tips-for-heart-mind-and-body
If you want to avoid problems such as strokes and heart disease, there is an easy way.
Get more fruits and vegetables.
Whole grains are better than refined ones. Brown rice is better than white. Switch to whole-wheat pasta
Consider lean proteins such as poultry, fish and beans.
Reduce your intake of processed foods, sugar, salt, saturated fat, and other unhealthy food.
Flexibility is key to eating well, according to Joyce Meng, MD assistant professor at UConn Health's Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center. You can follow a strict diet plan if you prefer. It's okay if you don't like following a strict diet plan.
Tricia Montgomery (52), founder of K9 Fit Club knows firsthand the benefits of a healthy diet and lifestyle. Her favorite things are eating healthy food and making small, frequent meals. She says, "I don’t deny myself anything." "I still enjoy dessert, key lime pie, yum!" -- I love frozen gummy bears and moderation is the key.
Get regular checkups. Your doctor will keep track of your medical history so that you can stay healthy. If you are at high risk of osteoporosis (a condition that weakens bones), your doctor may recommend more vitamin D and calcium.
You may be recommended by your doctor to have screening tests done to monitor your health and detect conditions before they become serious.
Be open to communication. Meng said, "If you have any questions, ask your doctor." "Ensure you are satisfied with the information." Talk to your doctor if you have concerns about any medication or procedure.
It can be very detrimental to your health. It is impossible to avoid it all, but there are ways you can reduce the effects. Do not take on too many responsibilities. Set limits for yourself and others. It is okay to say no.
To relieve stress, try:
Talking to a friend or family member.
Develop healthy habits
You can prevent problems from coming your way tomorrow if you make the right decisions today.
Brush your teeth twice daily and floss each day.
Limit your alcohol. Limit your alcohol intake to 1 drink per day.
Take your medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
Get better sleep. Try to sleep for at least 8 hours. Talk to your doctor if you are having trouble sleeping.
Keep out of direct sunlight between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Wear your seatbelt.
Meng suggests that you take time each day to invest in your own health.
Montgomery was able to see the benefits. Montgomery says that she has overcome health issues, is happy, and has a positive outlook. She says that her life has been forever transformed.
