Building The World’s Top AI Industry Community

barack obama

When it comes to artificial intelligence, and technology in general, we as a society are often guilty of thinking of it as separate from humanity. However, AI and humanity are of course intricately entwined, as AI is built by humans. Just as the saying goes, “no man is an island,” the same can be said of what we build.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has now permeated all sectors of business – and for good reason. 

Across multiple industries, difficult or expensive tasks can be automated by AI/ML and, as a result, catapult even failing businesses into success. AI boasts a seemingly infinite list of applications – from improving customer experience to curing sleep disorders. 

However, as the use of artificial intelligence rises, so does the need for cross-industry communication on the topic. 

Ai4 is unique in that it creates a bridge between industries, leaders, and technologists. The company provides a common

WASHINGTON — Younger children pose a smaller risk of catching and transmitting the coronavirus, a top pediatrician told Congress on Thursday, providing a scientific argument for why elementary schools could potentially open in parts of the country next month.

“School systems may consider prioritizing the return of younger children and taking additional measures to ensure physical distancing and the wearing of face coverings among older children,” Dr. Sean O’Leary told the House Education and Labor Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education on Thursday morning. 

The hearing was titled “Underfunded & Unprepared,” a sign of how House Democrats, who control the chamber’s agenda, view the matter. 

O’Leary, a vice chair for infectious disease at the American Academy of Pediatrics, also cited a South Korean

Inside the power struggle over the high-stakes hearing with top tech CEOs

A week ahead of the congressional hearing of four of the most powerful tech industry CEOs, the power struggle has already started.

Lawmakers and advocacy groups are jockeying to shape the logistics of the first-of-its-kind July 27 gathering where the CEOs of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google will face questions — likely virtually — from the House’s top antitrust panel. Seemingly small details, they say, could decide whether the hearing succeeds in pinning down the executives about their companies’ alleged misconduct.

The testimony is drawing attention just for the fact that the four chief executives — Jeff Bezos, Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg and Sundar Pichai, whose companies are worth a combined $4 trillion — are appearing together before lawmakers for the first time. It’s also the first congressional appearance ever for Bezos, the world’s richest man.

The committee has yet to disclose crucial details about the hearing format, including whether

They’ll be following all the rules this fall at the University of Michigan: masks, social distancing, smaller class sizes, frequent hand and surface washing, and more — much more. They’ll also be pioneering new rules for a new reality, particularly in the realm of remote instruction, as befits one of the country’s leading centers of social and cultural innovation. Put it all together and Scott DeRue, dean of the Ross School of Business, expects a memorable term.

“As with every year, I’m looking forward to welcoming students back to campus safely for a very successful fall term,” DeRue says. “Of course, I also recognize the profound difficulties that many of our students face in this moment, and that much uncertainty remains for all of us.

Big Tech Stocks Top Trillion-Dollar Each: ETFs to Bet On

In a booming technology sector, four of the five big names — Amazon AMZN, Microsoft MSFT, Apple AAPL and Alphabet GOOGL — surpassed a trillion-dollar market capitalization each for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. This is largely thanks to the shift in consumer habits to a purely digital world.

The strong performance indicates strong resilience of the tech sector in one of the worst economic environments that the United States has ever seen. In particular, Amazon has been the star performer with shares rising more than 60% in the year-to-date timeframe on booming demand for e-commerce and cloud computing amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The stock topped $3,000 for the first time ever in the latest trading session (read: Top-Ranked Technology ETFs Soaring to All-Time Highs).
