The Merging of Humans and Artificial Intelligence

Getting back to our own world though, prostheses enhanced with artificial intelligence is a reality.

Jason Barnes, a musician who lost his arm in an accident, was fitted with a prosthetic arm that enables individual finger movement through the use of artificial intelligence.

Kernel, and even Facebook are developing artificial intelligence implants and morefor your brain.

Would you want artificial intelligence messing about in your brain? I, again, asked my eclectic group of friends what their thoughts were.

It’s kinda creepy to think of an artificial intelligence being physically inside my head. What if someone figured out how to hack the system? Then, they would have literal control of my mind.

Them, aged 29: I would be 100% against having an artificial intelligence implant in my brain because technology is so easily corrupted by the simplest of methods.

Though everything is either in development or in the early stages of implementation as far as the merging of humans and artificial intelligence goes, progress is definitely being made.

FDA developing new rules for artificial intelligence in medicine

The Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday that it is developing a framework for regulating artificial intelligence products used in medicine that continually adapt based on new data.

It is the most forceful step the FDA has taken to assert the need to regulate a category of artificial intelligence systems whose performance constantly changes based on exposure to new patients and data in clinical settings.

The white paper describes criteria the agency proposes to use to determine when medical products that rely on artificial intelligence will require FDA review before being commercialized.

The paper is the first step in a monthslong process in which the FDA will collect input from the public and a variety of stakeholders in medicine before finalizing a policy on regulating adaptive AI systems.

Eric Topol, an expert in artificial intelligence at the Scripps Research Institute, said the white paper “Demonstrates careful forethought about the field” of artificial intelligence in medicine.

“Artificial intelligence has helped transform industries like finance and manufacturing, and I’m confident that these technologies will have a profound and positive impact on health care,” he wrote in his statement.

“I can envision a world where, one day, artificial intelligence can help detect and treat challenging health problems, for example by recognizing the signs of disease well in advance of what we can do today.”

Algorithm Is A Dancer: How artificial intelligence is reshaping electronic music

If artists and music lovers don’t have a sense of agency when approaching technology, we will get left behind and potentially duped by those who are savvy with the technology; for every innovative experiment and collaboration with AI, there are many more cynical commercial applications of it within mainstream music.

In an interesting, in-depth feature on The Verge last year, musician and DJ Mag writer Dani Deahl took a deep dive into AI based music software such as Amper, IDM Watson Beat and Google Magenta -programs that digest mountains of data from decades of recorded music and its successes, to try to effectively formulate or help to create hits.

AI generated music is already passable enough for adverts, backing music for videos and broadcasts, jingles, call holding music and ‘lite’ music for playlists in public places.

Another interesting concept that is founded on access and co-creativity can be found at UK firm AI Music, which applies artificial intelligence to understand mood, location, activity and time of day.

AI Music claims its algorithms can, through nuanced learning, potentially create thousands of different versions of a song, hyper customising your experience and relationship with music, and how you interact with it.

AI Music founder and CEO Siavash Mahdavi has explained in interviews how people pick music much more through their activity and mood, and how their software encourages collaboration and experimentation from the user.

“What we’re looking at doing,” he says, “Is shifting music to a similar paradigm, so we get more and more people playing with music, lowering the barriers of entry to music creation using these tools. Looking at photography, we still have the artist level photography. That’s there to stay, and it’ll be a similar thing to music. But we’ll have more people playing with and creating music.”
