Building trust in autonomous technologies

Posted on

Abstract This research placement examined the barriers to widespread adoption of smart technologies by the elderly. There were three major considerations: our dependence on automation, how we can improve lives and its trustworthiness. With an ageing population, automation will reduce economic and infrastructural pressures hence increasing the need to develop and deploy such technologies. The […]

AI and biological consciousness – is there a connection?

Posted on

Lucy Chen Artificial intelligence has existed since the 1950s, and underpins all technology in modern society. From monitoring Amazon transactions to self-driving cars, almost every product used today runs on intelligent machines. One of the most recognisable systems of artificial intelligence is the artificial neural network (ANN), which is loosely modelled after the animal neocortex- […]
