From empowering post surgery patients and healthcare workers to morality algorithms for autonomous machines, to then be blown out of the water by the concept of Synthetic Data to train AI's and help map bias in human generated data,  brilliant, yet there was more, a Synthetic Human Data Set that could be used to remove the chemical testing on animals which is barbaric.

Well by then my mind was wow, the awesome possibilities in front of us and I wasn't angry anymore

Ethics and AI 

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles—and what Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our founding Universities, Park companies and the North Carolina community at-large, are called upon to speak passionately and authentically about what matters to them. The twist? They must do it in 5 minutes or less!

We ask our speakers to be intentional with their 300 seconds up on the virtual stage. What perspective of their industry are they able to share? What are their passions? What would our community be surprised to learn? What case studies in North Carolina are cutting edge?

This month, the topic is AI. Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. The term may also be applied to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind such as learning and problem-solving. You may attend this event thinking you know all there is to know about AI, but get ready to consider a different angle.

Jason Douglas - Robot Heart - Burning Man - 2019
There are only a handful of places on the planet where electronic music is treated like art. The bus is one of them, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to share music on it. The tracks in this set are my own original compositions or edits. I consider this to be an album release. The music is, for the most part, tuned to 432hz in Just Intonation. This tuning follows the harmonic series, and is in harmony with the mathematics of nature. I hope you feel it with as much love as I put in. Finally, I want to thank the Robot Heart team for working on the system through the night to get the bus out that morning. Your effort meant a great deal to me.
