70% of Americans would like to use AI in their jobs
While a majority of Americans would like to use AI at work, they would still prefer to maintain final decision making power
If you're curious to try out a machine learning-enabled product, I'd love to hear your feedback on an app that I’m building.
Heyday is a browser extension that automatically organizes your research. When you visit pages online, Heyday saves them. Then it uses machine learning to resurface that content alongside relevant Google search results, overlay it on articles, and curate it into topics.
We will be launching out of beta on Product Hunt in a few weeks - and your feedback will go a long way towards making our launch a success!
Awesome, not awesome.
“Advanced AI technology can now calculate a person’s risk of suffering a heart attack just by listening to their voice, a new study says. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic say people who have a high voice biomarker score are more than twice as likely to suffer major heart problems related to clogged arteries.
Coronary heart disease is the most common cause of heart attack and is one of the leading causes of death for both men and women worldwide. It occurs when the heart’s blood supply is blocked or interrupted by a build-up of plaque in the arteries. Now, scientists have developed a “powerful screening tool” dubbed the Vocalis Health algorithm to help identify those who are particularly at risk and may need close monitoring.” - Study Finds Learn More from Study Finds >
“As prosaic as it is to use computer-generated profiles to sell things, the spread of the technology worries digital forensics expert Farid. As artificial intelligence advances, he and other researchers expect it to become harder to detect computer-created images with the naked eye — not to mention fake audio and video, like the heavily manipulated video that circulated on social media recently purporting to show Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy calling on his soldiers to surrender.
Computer-generated faces are "the canary in the coal mine," Farid said. "It's the beginning of what is coming next, which is full blown audio-video deepfakes targeted to a specific person."” - Shannon Bond, Tech Correspondent Learn More from NPR >
