Loneliness Is as Lethal As Smoking 15 Cigarettes Per Day. Here's What You Can Do About It. As a social work graduate student, I worked in a medical hospital.
One of my projects included studying the "revolving door" patients--those individuals who came into the emergency room on a regular basis. Some of these patients came into the hospital for chronic issues, such as back pain and breathing difficulties. I identified the patients who lived alone. With their permission, I began calling them on a regular basis to check on them. Sometimes they wanted to talk about their health. Then, we tracked their emergency room visits. I think there were two reasons those phone calls reduced their visits to the hospital; they felt less lonely which helped them feel better physically and feeling connected with someone meant they were less likely to go to the emergency room simply to have human contact. Parenting in the Age of Artificial Intelligence. Generation Alpha—those born between 2010 and 2025—will grow up in a world in which artificial intelligence is part of everyday life.

If there is one thing about artificial intelligence (AI) most people agree on it’s the fact that AI and the way in which its many ‘forms’ are leveraged, whether it’s in a context of cobots, sentiment analysis applications, autonomous decision-making in smart buildings, intelligence at the edge of IoT (Internet of Things) or any other solution, should serve human, business and societal goals one way or the other.
As artificial intelligence grows in its capabilities and its impact on people’s lives businesses must move to “raise” their AIs to act as responsible, productive members of society (Accenture, Citizen AI research) AI news: Robot babysitters could 'leak child's location' Experts say they are concerned about child safety and privacy, particularly with "low-end" bots.
Parents could end up putting visual and location data about their kids online without realising it could be hacked and accessed by strangers. Christian Grewell, Professor of Interactive Media Arts and Business, NYU Shanghai, said: "What I worry most about is the low-end market, where the producers are more focused on a quick buck and not on the security of the device.

Keeko the robot bears a startling resemblance to Eve from the Pixar film Wall-E and moves around completely independently via inbuilt sensors and cameras. It also comes fitted with a small screen to interact with the pupils and is being used by teachers to tell stories and present logic problems to the kindergarten students. More than 600 kindergartens across the country have been equipped with a Keeko bot and the makers of the round machine hope to expand into Greater China and Southeast Asia.

Who Will Win the Race for AI? Klawe Rzeczy illustration for Foreign Policy; Photos by Bruce Bennett/David Becker/Fred Dufour/Getty Images The race to develop artificial intelligence (AI) is gathering momentum, and as the United States and China pull ahead, other countries, especially in the developing world, are lagging far behind.
If they don’t catch up, their economic and political prospects will be grim. For those countries at the back of the pack, the economic challenges will be hard enough: In an automated world, there will be far less demand for the unskilled labor they’ve typically provided.
