Every day 1,300 scientists and 700 research institutes collect massive amounts of data. Their goal is track down cancer. Jan Komorowski, a bioinformatician involved in the project, in conversation with Monika Redzisz.
Buildings, whole cities packed with sensors and video surveillance systems are generating an increasing amount of data. The more data we are able to gather, the more sense it will make to use machine learning in architecture, says Kacper Radziszewski in conversation with Monika Redzisz.
We were in our early twenties and we were bold. We knew that everyone in the world was working on speech synthesizers of better quality. And there was us: five guys from Gdańsk struggling to make ends meet, recalls Łukasz Osowski, a co-creator of the Amazon voice assistant, in conversation with Monika Redzisz.
The question about the future of artificial intelligence should be looked at in a broader context: Where is this all going? Why do we need it? Do we do that only to make money or to improve the quality of life? Conversation with Jarosław Protasiewicz, PhD, director of the National Information Processing Institute.
If an algorithm has been used to make a decision that concerns us, we have the right to know about it. We can’t simply give up and say: “This is artificial intelligence and only artificial intelligence knows what to do”, says Agata Foryciarz, an IT specialist from Stanford University, in conversation with Monika Redzisz.
“Would you like us to create our own surgical robot?” doctor Nawrat asked professor Religa. “When will I be able to use it to operate?” replied professor. That was how Robin Heart came into being.
“Artificial intelligence may provide more effective treatment than any psychiatrist in the world. Combining diagnostic AI with therapeutic AI will create a super-psychiatrist,” says professor Marek Krzystanek, pioneer of telemedicine in Poland, in an interview with Monika Redzisz.
What would happen if artificial intelligence was trained on propaganda press texts? I shudder to think. That is why humans will always have to control AI. Including those who use algorithms to digitize the collection of the National Library of Poland.
“We expect COVID-19 to become a persistent human virus like flu,” says professor Nikolai Petrovsky in an interview conducted by Anna Zagórna.
