AI and Governance

AI and Governance
👋 Hi, I am Mark. I am a strategic futurist and innovation keynote speaker. I advise governments and enterprises on emerging technologies such as AI or the metaverse. My subscribers receive a free weekly newsletter on cutting-edge technology.

Good Day! This is my weekly newsletter, with a dose of insights into the future. The topic of this newsletter is the exponential times we live in, hence the title of f(x) = e^x, which is the (natural) exponential function.

Recently, I launched my new concept The Digital Speaker and you can now book me as an avatar or hologram. Also, my tech trend prediction for 2021 is out, read it here!

My latest article:

Growing investments in Artificial Intelligence technology have transformed many areas in the business world, especially among high-tech and financial organisations. Companies looking into AI may focus on the potential for automating low-skill tasks, but they are overlooking a major opportunity. Artificial Intelligence can also play a significant role in corporate governance, serving to augment the decision-making processes by the organisation's leadership. As such, AI could lead to better companies.

My weekly tips from around the web to get you thinking.

2. Can humans keep the upper hand on AI?

What happens if AI seeks to avoid human intervention and create unwanted situations? Researchers have shown how human operators can maintain control if that happens. (Science Daily)

3. Interested to know what Dolphins talk about? AI might know.

Scientists have used unsupervised learning algorithms to eavesdrop on dolphins. AI enabled them to sift through millions of echolocation clicks and discover patterns. (Independent)
