Google and Microsoft Expand Artificial Intelligence Research

Artificial intelligence is getting smarter, but there’s still a lot to learn about this growing field for all of us. To that end, several tech giants recently announced programs to help take AI and machine learning from the nascent stage of development to solving sophisticated challenges across virtually every industry. Google’s Focus on People in AI Research Google announced a new initiative with a focus on the “human side of AI” that will mean building systems with the user in mind from the start. According to the website, the goal of People + AI Research initiative (PAIR) is research, development, and creating design frameworks for a more humanistic approach to artificial intelligence. PAIR’s research is divided into three areas: Engineering and analysis: How can we make building machine learning systems easier for engineers? Augmented expert intelligence: How can AI support doctors, technicians, designers, farmers, musicians, and others? AI for everyone: Will AI eventually become all-inclusive? In the blog post announcement, Google brings up design thinking, posing the question: “Instead of viewing AI purely as a technology, what if we imagine it as a material to design with?” Another post discusses seven points for designing human-centered machine learning (HCML) products. Acknowledging that AI is…
