3 Problems With AI That Only Design Can Solve

https://www.fastcodesign.com/90144510/3-problems-with-ai-only-designers-can-solveIn an era when users have to theorize about how algorithms work, design has never been more necessary. AI is in desperate need of designers–in part, because machine learning products often originate in the world of research, where design principles are rarely applied.

We went all the way back to paint,” Apple Senior Vice President Phil Schiller explained. The enhancements to the camera systems in the 8 Plus and the X are some of the biggest upgrades in the new line. The camera’s effects don’t rely on filters. They’re the result of Apple’s new dual camera system working in concert with machine learning to sense a scene, map it for depth, and then change lighting contours over the subject. It’s all done in real time, and you can even preview the results thanks to the company’s enormously powerful new A11 Bionic chip. The result, when applied to Apple scale, has the power to be transformative for modern photography, with millions of amateur shots suddenly professionalized. In many ways it’s the fullest realization of the democratization of high-quality imagery that the company has been working toward since the iPhone 4.

AI that knows you’re sick before you do: IBM’s five-year plan to remake healthcare

by J/o Best @ zdnet.com

A chip that can diagnose a potentially fatal condition faster than the best lab in the country, a camera that can see so deeply into a pill it can tell if its molecular structure has more in common with a real or counterfeit tablet, and a system that can help identify if a patient has a mental illness just from the words they use: IBM is betting that a mix of AI and new hardware can make all three possible within the coming years.

IBM’s research labs are already working on turning these concepts into fully-fledged healthcare tools, combining the company’s existing machine learning and artificial intelligence systems with newer kit including revamped silicon and millimetre wave phased array sensors.

2017 predictions for web design & technology trends

by Collis @ medium.com

When I worked as a web designer, I was fascinated by how design trends changed each year. Since hanging up my design boots and focusing on being CEO of Envato, my focus has shifted from visual trends, to industry and technology ones. As I did in 2014 and 2015, here’s my take on where the world is moving!
