Where machine intelligence meets human ingenuity
Electric Minds focuses on AI use cases that make the world a better place. We combine machine intelligence with human ingenuity to inspire new ways of thinking and solve some of the most challenging problems we face as a global society today.
We believe that collaboration across companies and industries is the key to unlocking the full potential of AI. That’s why we work with leading companies, universities and government organizations to facilitate conversations and drive innovation in AI together. Many of the world’s most pressing challenges – from climate change to healthcare – can be addressed with connected, intelligent technologies, but technology alone is not the solution. We need to bring people together, align our goals, overcome our biases and work collaboratively if we want to build a better future for all.
Organizational Readiness: Helping companies become data-driven and AI-ready through leadership development, API adoption, and data governance.
Collaboration and Openness: Fostering collaboration between companies, industries and countries to sharing best practices, data and insights around AI.
AI for Good: Making AI accessible to everyone and working on use cases and applications of AI that have a positive impact on society, such as healthcare, education, and sustainability.
A key part of our mission is to make AI accessible to everyone, help people understand how it works and how it can be used to benefit society. Our goal is to identify use cases where AI can make a positive impact and help people and organizations implement AI solutions that make a difference. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time, but surely not the only one. Healthcare, education, energy, transportation – these are all areas where this approach will make a real difference.
AI language models like LaMDA and GPT-3 produce fascinating results that are often indistinguishable from human-written texts and conversations. Yes – you could ask whether or not these models are sentient, but I suggest we focus on building use cases for these new capabilities and look for ways to prevent misuse → More.
Sam is probably very different to the chatbots you have seen before. She can have natural conversations, understand and respond to questions – and she has an opinion on everything. She has read the entire Wikipedia, knows all books in existence, and she can provide detailed explanations on any topic you ask her about. If she is in the mood for it, that is! → More
AI in the current business landscape
Many companies and organizations are working on AI initiatives and come with the best of intentions. But often these efforts are isolated, with little thought given to how they might fit into a larger ecosystem. This can lead to friction, duplication of effort, wasted resources and a general lack of coordination. Additionally, it is normal for companies to be motivated primarily by profit, which can lead to sub-optimal solutions or even ethical concerns.
In contrast, the open source model of development – as exemplified by projects like Wikipedia – is based on collaboration and the sharing of knowledge. This model has proven to be highly effective, and we believe it can be applied to the development of AI solutions. By working together, we can pool resources, ideas and expertise to create solutions that are greater than the sum of their parts. This is the model that Electric Minds is based on, and we invite you to join us in building a better future.
How you can get involved
This initiative is at an early stage, and we are looking for companies and organizations who are interested in collaborating on AI projects that have a positive impact on society. If you are working on an AI project that you think could benefit from our approach, please get in touch. We are also looking for individuals with expertise in AI, machine learning or data science who are interested in contributing to our efforts.
Our goal is not to build yet another app or platform, but rather to facilitate conversations and connect people with the resources they need to drive innovation. If you are working on something that you think could benefit from our approach, or if you would like to get involved in our work, we would love to hear from you.
What is AI, exactly? And what is the difference between AI and Machine Learning?
In short, artificial intelligence is about teaching computers to do things that normally require human intelligence, like solving problems, gaining insights, and making connections based on understanding and intuition. This can be done through a number of methods, including process automation, machine learning, and data analytics. Google Search is one example of an AI application – the system knows what you are looking for based on your past search history, provides you with relevant results, and keeps learning from your interactions to get better over time.
AI is not a new concept – it has been around for centuries in various forms, although the term “artificial intelligence” was only coined in the 1950s, and its definition has been evolving ever since. Modern AI is used in many different ways, from chatbots and digital voice assistants to self-driving cars and predictive maintenance.
Machine learning is a subset of AI that deals with the ability of machines to learn from data and improve their performance over time without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning algorithms are able to automatically improve given more data, using neural networks that mimic the way the human brain learns. While this sounds like a science fiction concept, it is actually already being used in many everyday applications, such as email filtering, computer vision, and fraud detection. Have you recently noticed that your social media feeds seem to show you more of what you want to see? That’s machine learning at work!
