Having been a reader of VentureBeat for a number of years, I have a lot of respect for Kyle Wiggers. He is one of the more interesting voices in technology and is a great interviewer. I was unsure how to go about expressing my feelings about him. But I thought I’d give it a try.
Currently a senior reporter for TechCrunch, Kyle Wiggers is a writer with an interest in artificial intelligence. His writing has appeared on a range of gadget blogs and in VentureBeat. He lives in Brooklyn with his partner. He occasionally plays piano.
The advent of Artificial Intelligence has already begun to shape a variety of sectors. However, only one in four employers are confident they know which skills will be needed in the future. In order to meet the needs of a rapidly changing global economy, companies need new skills. And to do that, they need to look at a variety of tools to help them make informed decisions.
In conjunction with VentureBeat’s Transform 2021 event, Data Natives will host a half-day content program to explore the future of AI. This event will bring together two leading AI conferences and will offer a unique opportunity to learn about a wide range of tools that can help address the risks involved in AI deployment.
About the author
During her undergraduate study, Namita Gupta Wiggers studied art history and planned to pursue a PhD in art history. However, she changed her course of study when she received a research assistantship at the University of Chicago, where she studied Asian American art. Her research focused on the lives of South Asian immigrants. In 2010, Wiggers coined the term “craftscape” to describe social objects with histories and narratives. She wanted to move away from the traditional “craft versus art” binary.
In her dissertation, Wiggers investigated the lives of South Asian immigrants in the United States, focusing on anthropological aesthetics of everyday life. Wiggers interviewed South Asian immigrants, and studied objects they brought from their home countries. These objects included textiles, small Hindu statues, murti (religious paintings), and objects from their home.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has funded a number of AI research institutes, including the NSF Research and Development Center for AI. It also created the National Artificial Intelligence Research Institutes. The NSF is dedicated to AI research, education, and innovation.
Several initiatives are using AI and blockchain to create a more decentralized system of data storage and sharing. Examples include the Health2Sync diabetes data trust and the Farasha Labs platform.
In addition, private companies can use AI to develop employee capabilities and innovation. Many logistics companies are using AI-powered sorting robots to optimize warehouse operations.
