Unconscious biases are working their way into the #AI tools and exacerbating existing problems within social institutions that are now beginning to rely on them.

130 in-person participants and over 1000 online viewers participated in the Computing Community Consortium's two-day "Symposium on Computing Research: Addressing National Priorities and Societal Needs" to explore how research-based innovations in computing cam become catalysts for addressing compelling societal problems.

At #AI's the current state, the power to shape and direct this world-changing technology remains within society’s reach. Last week, a discussion at Stanford University titled “The Future of Artificial Intelligence: Emerging Topics and Societal Benefit" focused on how both public and private interest might accomplish this. The event featured 15 speakers from government and academia and it concluded Friday morning appearance by President Barack Obama.

In an effort to provide the highest quality scientific literature for the computing community, ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation (TOMS) has adopted a new review procedure called the Replicated Computational Results (RCR) Initiative. This allows authors whose manuscripts contain data from computational experiments to submit their results to journal referees who will attempt to scientifically reproduce them. Manuscripts whose results are successfully replicated will receive a special RCR designation upon their publication.

During his 42 year career at @IBM, Paul W. Case Jr. worked on the company’s first stored programmable computer in 1951, and helped develop the next four generations of IBM computers.

Case presented a paper titled “The Recording, Checking and Printing of Logic Diagrams” at the ACM Eastern Meeting in 1958, which has come to be considered a foundational work in the field of Design Automation. Case continued to be recognized as a leader in Design Automation and served as Director of Design Automation for Worldwide IBM Laboratories from 1970 to 1973.

Now in his 90s, Case continues to invent, and recently received a US patent for a new hardware-based design to enhance cybersecurity. In this People of ACM Interview, Case discusses Moore’s Law as it applies to Design Automation and how to effective manage teams of engineers, among other topics.

Leslie Lamport’s works shed light on fundamental issues of concurrent programs, for which there was no formal theory at the time. He grappled with fundamental concepts such as causality and logical time, atomic and regular shared registers, sequential consistency, state machine replication, Byzantine agreement and wait-freedom. He worked on algorithms which have become standard engineering practice for fault tolerant distributed systems. He has also developed a substantial body of work on the formal specification and verification of concurrent system, and has contributed to the development of automated tools applying these methods. For his seminal contributions to theory and practice of distributed and concurrent systems, particularly in the areas of causality and logical clocks, Lamport received the 2013 ACM A.M. Turing Award.

You've heard of #AugmentedReality, but what about augmented eternity? Researchers at the MIT Media Lab and Ryerson University are experimenting with how artificial intelligence tools might use the massive sets of online data that today's digital consumers produce to create a posthumous version of someone's personalities.

“Your physical being may die, but your digital being will continue to evolve with the purpose of helping people and maintaining your legacy as an evolving being," says Dr Hossein Rahnama of Digital Media Zone.

Survey data shows that even though most people approve of autonomous vehicles that might sacrifice passengers to save others, they would prefer not to ride in such vehicles. Most riders would also not approve regulations mandating self-sacrifice, and such regulations would make them less willing to buy an autonomous vehicle.

This article in Science is a fascinating exploration of the social dilemmas and psychological quandaries that autonomous vehicles raise.

Advancing computing as a science and a profession
Introduction
ACM, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society with 100,000+ members, unites computing professionals, educators, and researchers from industry, academia, and government, to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field’s challenges. ACM strengthens the profession’s collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, supporting members’ professional development, and promoting policies and research that benefit society.
