AI algorithms, systems and platforms provide tremendous opportunity to impact almost all aspects of our lives. Such systems are already in wide use in diverse industries including HR, manufacturing, finance, retail and healthcare. While optimizing traditional quality metrics like accuracy, precision, performance, one needs to make sure that the systems are Fair, Explainable and Transparent. These features are key to develop trusted AI. In this talk, we will go over these topics with examples, algorithms, results and open areas which require attention from AI Research community.

Topic Abstract

Empathy is the ability to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes. Some theories and better understand empathy as a natural process, but there are positive and negative aspects to it. In the same way, we can imitate a smile; we can imitate a frown and expressions of outrage.

In the words of – Albert Einstein “Empathy is patiently and sincerely seeing the world through the other person’s eyes. It is not learned in school; it is cultivated over a lifetime.

So how do we cultivate empathy and be certain that empathy is inculcated in our society and also in the development process of new products and services?

Rapid progress in artificial intelligence has enhanced the human factor of machines. Like humans, machines can be influenced by humans with diverse ethical values. The A.I. consciousness of tomorrow should have the capacity for intelligent, emotional interactions and relationships.

It doesn’t seem unreasonable that a machine would have an acute emotional component. Our society could not survive if our empathic abilities: goodwill, humanity, and altruism were removed from our human experience, so why should we remove these abilities from a machine

To unite and enhance our life experiences with the technology we must create, develop, think or most likely “feel” this new revolution from an emotional point of view. These conscious items, robots, entities will not only be crafting or recoding our relationships to medicine but also means of transportation and communications technology, especially the internet.

In looking at AI’s brief history, represented through innovations like chatbots, we come across ethical challenges that we must overcome to ensure AI is not adversely moulded, to harm users.

At its core, AI can bring out the best and worst in humanity. This increases the need to ensure AI is introduced in the right situations and in the right way. Just as society is built upon a contract of expected behaviour, we will need to design AI systems to respect and fit with our social norms.

Topic Abstract

×

Assisted or Supervised models of machine learning are a great boon to automate many mundane tasks in ERP world. Supervised model combined with hypothesis models helps in creating “situations” and in predicting possible outcomes to a given situation. Simple cases of Critical Value Methods and p-value methods can be used to provide insights before user takes an action in ERP. In this presentation we will use the above methods to solve a problem of how invoices are matched with vendor payments.

Use Case:
Account Receivable accountants have to match incoming payments with open customer invoices that the payments are intended to clear. This is a laborious task riddled with many incorrect matches and subsequent reversals and painstakingly slow process.

Using Machine Learning capabilities, the matching engine can learn from accountants’ past manual actions, capturing much richer detail of customer- and country-specific behavior and use hypothesis models to propose possible outcomes.

Conversational systems (chatbots) are increasingly becoming popular for providing timely, low cost and personalized experience while supporting customers. Large companies like Google and IBM have thrown their hat into the game by providing frameworks. However, based on our first hand experience in developing these for our Fortune 500 customers, lot of the magic happens in the ML models, and these models get increasingly complex when you want to engage customers for multiple turns in a specific business workflow. In this presentation, I will detail the lay of the land, our experience, and some best practices for developing these systems.

Topic Abstract

A gathering of people have long held considerable power. Whether the purpose was for demonstrations, protests, civilian movements or for more peaceful purposes, related to corporate events and business gatherings. Marketers have always been interested in getting a sense of the crowds, whether it was to get an approximate headcount of the gathering or to get their finer demographical attributes. However, the means to get this information have been limited and there have been several technological challenges in implementing robust, non-intrusive solutions around this.

The use of video footages to count people offers some potential, but until recently wasn’t adequately solved. With an appropriate solution, crowd counting through video can provide powerful traffic flow measurement with real-time or periodic reporting. Combining traffic data with other operational data provides end users with the methodology to accurately increase customer service during key selling periods, reduce costs during slow selling periods, and determine the effectiveness of advertising expenses and promotional campaigns.

A number of solutions have been developed using OpenCV and Machine learning to count people and none of them is perfect. To boost the system's accuracy, researchers have switched to Deep-learning AI that takes advantage of neural networks to process images. This innovation enables video to move beyond security applications and to provide valuable business data in the areas of Gaming, Retail, Transportation, Education, Financial, Government etc.

This talk will present some of these more sophisticated solutions with some examples and a working demo of a prototype.
