Artificial Intelligence mistakes - who's responsible?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is receiving allot of attention these days and many feel for good reason.  One interesting question has surfaced multiple times in the last few weeks.  No matter how much effort we put into the development and testing and safeguards we have in place, AI systems will likely make an error upon occasion.  So the question is, who should be held accountable for those errors?

The system owner, the system developer, the vendor of the AI technology products used or someone else – What do you think? 

What happens if the AI mistake results in the loss of a human life?

Talk about disruption!

Categories: AI

Just recently a survey of over 5,000 business leaders and staff found that over 40 percent of British companies said their business models will cease to exist in the next five years thanks to artificial intelligence (AI). 

The figure is not that surprising given over 50 percent of Britain's business leaders that were asked said the do not have an AI strategy!

File that under the heading of "Thinks that make you go hmmm and scratch your head."

Creating an Un-hackable Internet

Categories: Hacking, Internet, quantum, security

Recently, new about a project that is on the very edge of emerging technologies out of the Netherlands has gained substantial attention lately. Their highly ambitious goal is to develop an un-hackable quantum internet! The work looks to leverage the unique attributes of quantum technology substantially increase cyber security, to defend against hackers that intercept, read, delete or alter the transactions and data flowing that flows across the Internet each and every second. Those are lofty goals and cutting-edge intentions to be sure.

Emerging Technologies & Strategy

Strategy requires continual monitoring and updating as new impactful technologies emerge. Identifying the strategic influence of emerging technologies on an organization is not an easy task these days. It is part art and part science and heavily reliant on up-to-date data, information and knowledge.  It also requires unique relationships with those associated with the emerging technologies and who have a solid understanding of how the technologies may impact your industry. When the up-to-date data, information and knowledge about the impactful emerging technologies is in the hands of strategists, their attention must turn to determining how the emerging technologies will impact them currently and will likely have in the coming years on their organization.
