In AI opensource is the norm
Good to see Amazon joining other leading companies in support of opensource AI platforms. It's good for humanity and it's good for business.

GDPR, machine learning, algorithms & transparancy
This blog nicely describes the issues which we have to discuss with regard to data protection. Much more relevant then most current discussions about privacy which are usually about collection or single issues.

Algorithms better at diagnosing pneumonia
No surprises here, it's logical that in any field where image recognition/analysis is relevant algorithms and AI will rule. The interesting question is what the future role of radiologists will be and how many we will need. Also it offers possibilities to offer expert analysis, which now depends on humans, anywhere and cheaply.

AI Now: it's not only about code
AI is not only about technology, it should also be studied in the context of society. AI Now is doing that. I hope more initiatives follow. In Europe for example, i am not aware of them ?
I especially like the four themes which would fit the policy agenda of any country with regard to AI:
1.Bias and inclusion (how can bad data disadvantage people)
2.Labor and automation (who doesn’t get hired when AI chooses)
3.Rights and liberties (how does government use of AI impact the way it interacts with citizens)
4.Safety and critical infrastructure (how can we make sure healthcare decisions are made safely and without bias)

Waymo did it
Ofcourse it is in a relative simple and quiet suburban environment, still it's a great achievement, really autonomous self-driving vehicles by Waymo, Google's self driving car initiative.

Ray Kurzweil spoke
Always good to listen to Ray Kurzweil, he is often right with his predictions. Also he stimulates our thinking and fantasy about AI in the near future.
