Study of Trust in AI
1,200+ citizens from the US, Canada, Germany, UK and Australia were surveyed in a recent KPMG & UoQ study. Focusing on AI systems with applications in Healthcare and Human Resources - what are the views on citizen trust and expectations for AI?Not surprisingly, while Trust is key to the success of AI-driven applications; citizens were found to have 'low trust' but generally 'accepting' of AI solutions generally - the level of confidence and willingness to share data with a third party and AI system is also interesting.Implications for business, government/ policymakers and morehttps://home.kpmg/content/dam/kpmg/au/pdf/2021/trust-in-ai-multiple-countries.pdfimage credit: KPMG

AI-generated newsreaders launched in China - what's next?
Did you think it possible that we'd want to replace human presenters of our media and news, with AI-generated clones?  Over a year ago, China's second largest search engine (Sogou) partnered with a state-run news agency to do just that.Journalists and News Presenters are typically expected to be human-powered - personality driven, trust-based principally. Can AI-generated clones create similar Anchors that we trust?https://journalismai.com/2019/05/04/artificial-sincerity-too/image by mohamed Hassan from Pixabay

Ammonia Engine
German companies and researchers, led by MAN Energy Solutions, are working on a medium speed engine that can burn both diesel and ammonia. Ammonia is made from hydrogen through the Haber-Bosch at industrial scale and is a better energy carrier than hydrogen due to its high stability and energy density. An ammonia engine makes it possible to direct use of ammonia as power fuels by the transport sector for higher energy efficiency without converting it back to hydrogen.  https://www.offshore-energy.biz/man-energy-kicks-off-ammoniamot-project/
