AI in Health Care

 

Robots are used for surgical procedures for many years now.  I was told by one of my friends a few years ago that for a procedure he underwent, robots were used. There are still people who have concerns about this and who opt out of robots performing the procedure for them. There are also people who think robots are better than humans for this purpose as they will be more accurate and less likely to make mistakes like humans.

AI-driven surgical robots are gaining prominence in healthcare. There are big technology companies investing in this area and there is tremendous growth seen in North America. 

As technology and algorithms used for this purpose get better, we may see this trend growing and in many cases will be beneficial for people.  I am sharing this blog for awareness purposes.

Al, Deep Fakes and Mind Conditioning

Those familiar with technology may have heard the word Deep fakes. From Wikipedia-

Deepfakes (a portmanteau of "deep learning" and "fake") are synthetic media in which a person in an existing image or video is replaced with someone else's likeness. While the act of faking content is not new, Deep fakes leverage powerful techniques from machine learning and artificial intelligence to manipulate or generate visual and audio content with a high potential to deceive. The main machine learning methods used to create Deep fakes are based on deep learning and involve training generative neural network architectures, such as autoencoders or generative adversarial networks (GANs).

Now adding AI to the Deep fakes can be compelling ad can be used in a way that can be dangerous.
According to reports, it is used for morally and ethically wrong purposes.

It can be used for mind manipulation or conditioning to accomplish selfish ambitions. We have heard how algorithms are already learning about people and providing news feeds accordingly. It can also manipulate and present only what a media outlet or social media company wants people to read. This way, it can be used to control or condition minds. In mind manipulation, repeated exposure is a technique that works.

This issue has come to focus once again with Ukraine and Russia conflict, which is going on now. If you are interested to read more about it, then you can read this - Russiauses artificial intelligence, Deep fakes in propaganda warfare.
