    1. It is becoming clear that our Diplo5 focus is moving into right directions: a) focus on consolidating our data (Textus) b) integrating data value-add into our procedures (Textus) c) focusing on delivery of useful products (SpeechGen and Dta Sandbox).

      New possibilities will start opening with integration in this system of our LMS.

    1. Interesting text on the shift from a maturity-based to a risk-based cybersecurity. It discusses how this shift should translate into concrete measures within companies. Some elements could be interesting for course updates, including the security module on the AI course. Perhaps also interesting for cybersecurity ||VladaR||

    1. This text is about the reasons why AI projects fail. Personally, I am not impressed by business/MBA lingo which is as cryptic as UN lingo.

      We developed Diplo 5.0 out of intuition, coincidence (pandemic crisis) and bit of good luck. But, according to this article, it seems that we got in optimal way by:

      • focusing on the purpose of AI
      • integration AI into regular work procedures of Diplo
      • use AI as part of transformation of Diplo
      • make smart mix of internal and external talents while integrating external talents into Diplo team.
      • having process managed by the director
      • have very low risks by using agile approach
      • have early deliverables (sometimes too early) is important for dynamics of the project.
      • make AI and data 'touchable' (non-AI people can realise what it is about; in this way we can addreess also fears and discuss AI in realistic context).
      • there is no off-the-shelf AI solution; one has to experiment a lot with testing, fast feedback, and constant adjustment.
      • focus on augmented intelligence via agile process interplaying machine and human intelligence (e.g. Speech Generator).
      • AI can help overcoming policy silos in a very effective ways.
      • we can learn a bit of 'AI lingo' for our communication with external organisatio (we should not internalise this language since it is often empty but we should be aware of itit.).

      All in all, our experience could be turned in this type of article in - I would say - even more effective way.

    2. AI-generated predictions, solutions, and perspectives enable theorganization to align around these new aordances. In short, while organizations often integratetheir data, processes, and behaviors to exploit AI opportunities more eectively, on the back ofthis work, successful AI applications have the potential to integrate the organization inunprecedented ways

      Interesting impact of AI on overcoming policy silos

    3. The underlying solution can get better because it learns from the human experts it augments."

      Diplo's approach

    4. they are people who are savvy enough about AI yet have acumen “in keybusiness areas, allowing our digital practice leaders to prioritize and deploy AI projects wherethey make the most sense.

      Key people for AI and digital transformation.

    5. Unify their AI initiatives with their larger business transformation eorts.• Invest in AI talent, data, and process change in addition to (and often more so than) AItechnology. They recognize AI is not all about technology.

      Two steps that were taken at Diplo.

    6. Integrate their AI strategies with their overall business strategy

      Diplo 5.0 approach of integrating AI in our activities.

    7. Signicant challenges remain, however. Many AI initiatives fail. Seven out of 10 companiessurveyed report minimal or no impact from AI so far. Among the 90% of companies that havemade some investment in AI, fewer than 2 out of 5 report business gains from AI in the pastthree years. This number improves to 3 out of 5 when we include companies that have madesignicant investments in AI. Even so, this means 40% of organizations making signicantinvestments in AI do not report business gains from AI

      Statistics about failure of AI projects.

    1. Data Architects understand the organisation’s strategy and business problems to be solved, but have the technical insight to get their hands dirty in the data itself. They know what data is needed and how that data is to be integrated by various systems.

      Diplo 5.0 advanced a lot on data archtecture by combinaton of Textus - DigitalWatch - AI - LMS (to be added later on).

      ||Jovan||

    2. focus on cultural change and training within an organisation as it adapts to new working practices, but the most important factor is poor data.

      Integrating AI into working of organisation is the key challenge. If you have it, you have also good data (as result). Solving this cultural/organisational challenge is the main driver behind Diplo 5.0 evolutoin.

    3. Seventy percent of companies have reported minimal or no impact from Artificial Intelligence projects,

      Shocking statistics but realistic one.

    1. Text provides useful mapping between philosophy and AI. It also applies some of dilemmas to real life situation (drug design and architecture). It tackles a bit 'my obsession' with choice and dilemma between efficiency and human autonomy.

      For Diplo We should broaden my writing/attempts to push forward philosophical aspects of AI. This is useful input. We should look for other philosphers/thinkers who provide contributions in this field. More specifical follow-up activities:

    1. Here is a summary of the article on GPT-3 published in Guardian:

      • GPT-3 identifies patterns and generate sentences.
      • humans are in control
      • discarded 90% of text generated by GPT-3
      • humans had to write prompt and edit generated text.

    1. Countries with limited capacity to transform digital data into digital intelligence are constrained in their potential to capture economic value from data. To prevent dependence on a small group of advanced countries in the increasingly data-driven economy, national development strategies need to include digital upgrading (value addition) in data value chains. This would enhance domestic capacities to move from treating data as raw material to processing digital data and using artificial intelligence. It may involve designing national data policies and strategies to seize opportunities that the expansion of data can create, and manage associated risks and challenges

      For the AI and e-commerce course. ||kat_hone|| it could be useful to you as well.

    4. illustrates two salient features in the creation and use of frontier digital technologies for production. First, large parts of the world, especially on the African continent, remain completely excluded.3 These countries are not even importing any significant volumes of the most representative goods. Second, even among countries with some activity in frontier digital production technologies, the roles are quite diverse. Latecomers, for instance, are entering the race, but it is not yet clear if they will become followers. Among the followers, a large number are mainly importing capital goods produced aboard, with very little or no domestic innovation and few exports. Their prospects to advance are limited, as this will require large investment

      Figures on the creation and use of frontier digital technologies: advanced robotics, computer-aided manufacturing, additive manufacturing and machine learning. ||Jovan||

    5. These top economies account for almost all global activity in each area – above 90 per cent.

      Patents, imports and exports of advanced technologies. Interesting amount and the chart that follows is also very interesting.

    1. But unless we’re very careful, AI systems won’t see that - they’ll just learn about the world as it is, with all its unfairness and inequality, not the world as we want it to be. And they’ll dedicate their intelligence to reproducing the past, not to creating a brighter future

      Principle of garbage in, garbage out. Inequalities and all.

      Interesting terminology for the EU as a 'third world entity' in the digital world. This also links to the MIT article on AI colonialism.

      ||Jovan||

    3. In the German case, the focus on European – specifically, Franco-German – cooperation, appears to be a goal in itself, or the default idea. The French strategy, in contrast, adopts a more pragmatic approach – supporting European cooperation only in areas in which the strategy’s authors consider it to be useful.

    4. There are several reasons one cannot just ‘take the EU’s word for it’

    2. This has played out in the recent rush to form global AI ethics guidelines: developing countries in Africa, Latin America, and Central Asia have been largely left out of the discussions, which has led some to refuse to participate in international data flow agreements.

      interesting point for Road to Bern initiative and work on data principles/values

    1. GPT-2 was described as a “chameleon-like” synthetic text generator, but it wasn’t state-of-the-art in downstream tasks like question answering, summarization, or translation.

      It is an interesting point of difference between text generation, question answering, summarization or translation? Here, we can discuss a potential usability of GPT-2 ||JovanNj||||djordjej||||NatasaPerucica||||Katarina_An||

    2. GPT achieved state-of-the-art in language tasks by pairing supervised learning with unsupervised pre-training (or using the parameters from an unsupervised step as a starting point for the supervised step).

      How can GPT perform supervised and unsupervised pre-training? How it can work practiclally? ||JovanNj||||Jovan||
