2,000 Adults in US: Research on Artificial Intelligence: Current status of AI knowledge & usage

What happened: The Verge, Vox Media’s Insights and Research team, and The Circus polled over 2,000 U.S. adults to gauge their opinions, thoughts, and desires regarding AI.

What the numbers say: Their findings, titled “Hope, fear, and AI,” show that despite all the media attention, many AI tools still have limited adoption, particularly among older users. Fewer than 60% of respondents have used or heard about ChatGPT, the most popular generative AI tool, with numbers even lower for Microsoft’s Bing AI, Google’s Bard, and Midjourney.  (Sadly Claude2 was not in the survey)

Artificial Intelligence; Impact on Society

Almost 75% of individuals believe AI will have a significant or moderate impact on society, surpassing the percentages for electric vehicles (69%) and the relatively low 34% for NFTs.

 

How currently use Artificial Intelligence

Generative AI, which includes text, image, and idea creation, is the driving force behind the recent boom. The Verge’s survey found that answering questions and brainstorming were the top AI uses cases among respondents.

 

Did AI Improve their work?

Moreover, the majority believe that AI outperforms their own capabilities in content creation.

Industries vulnerable to AI

AutoHotkey Webinar- Intro to Neural Networks

Video Hour 1:  High Level: Intro to Neural Networks

Our guest presenter, Giordanno (Gio) Sperotto did an amazing job covering an intro to Neural Networks.

  1. Present some current uses for neural networks (examples to light up curiosity in the subject)
  2. Introduction to the algorithms (Using a simple excel sheet and Paint.NET file, the aim is to provide an overview of a very (VERY) simplified step-by-step process)
  3. Discuss the example in the tutorial (going through the problem and the .ahk code)
  4. Discuss AutoHotkey as a possible tool and also some other possible tools (Python, TensorFlow, etc)
  5. Brief Talk about some existing online courses and content (Udacity, Udemy, Youtube Channels, etc)
  6. Brief Talk about Jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities
  7. Discuss other advanced concepts (Bias, Activation Functions, Learning Rate, Cost-Function, Multiple Layers, BackPropagation, Convolutional NN, Recursive NN, Supervised and Unsupervised Learning, etc)

Video Hour 2: Coding and Q&A

Script Highlight: EntryForm() by Coco

 

Easy / quick way to create GUIs to capture user input with AutoHotkey.  Data captured is dumped into an AHK object.

Here is a link to EntryForm Example and script demonstrated during the webinar.
