Who is Michaela Jamelska and some of her tech & human rights ideas? Michaela Jamelska has been always interested in projects that are meaningful, innovative, and bring positive change into the world. I have studied technology and innovation management as well as human rights advocacy and international relations in the UK and US.
Michaela Jamelska regarding Ai and Gender Equality: While the new approach is better, it is not ideal, as it often relies on data sets mainly from open-source frameworks, which eventually exhibit biases. Another unaddressed challenge published by Stanford’s Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence is that multimodal models can result in higher-quality, machine-generated content that’ll be easier to personalize for misuse purposes. So, it is utopian and unrealistic to think we can have unbiased technologies with multimodal training systems, as even we human beings are not free of bias. However, our bias and habits can be lessened by providing diverse data and information. An advantage of AI is that it uncovers and mirror back to us some of the biases that humans hold. Furthermore, the new algorithmic accountability policies stress a prioritization of public participation to develop more democratic and equal systems. It is just recently that Amsterdam and Helsinki launched AI registries to detail how each city government uses algorithms to deliver service. The registry also offers citizens an opportunity to provide feedback on algorithms and ensure that these AI systems play in favor rather than against society. This is hopefully one of many steps towards using AI to achieve gender equality.
Michaela Jamelska about the innovative 5G trial to boost business : WECA obtained £3million of government funding to test how the region can handle with all the benefits of 5G technology. Its ultra-reliability and low latency is expected to increase the connectivity level and impact on the public sector to try new ways of delivering services and explore new commercial opportunities. Ports are fundamental to the global economy, transporting up to 90% of the world’s goods. Drones-based technology is quickly becoming a regular tool in the ports and logistics industry. Unmanned Life, with its software for autonomous robotics, is unlocking the full potential of drones in Ports and will improve safety, reduce costs, and enhance process efficiency, making UK ports a reference in the world. The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) has secured over £3m from the Government to test how the country can seize the full benefits of 5G and help businesses harness the power of modern technology. WECA’s 5G Logistics project programme will develop 5G products and services to support operations at Bristol Port and Gravity Smart Campus and demonstrate a smart and dynamic port environment. The project will focus on security, traceability, and real-time tracking of goods within and across extendable virtual boundaries – and between public and private networks.
Current human rights declarations and treaties were drafted and ratiﬁed to real-world issues and circumstances, and they are already insufficient in the online environment. No matter how much AI large companies integrate into their new systems, the end-users/consumers will be humans, so human rights should be at the center of this technological development. Human rights concepts are often seen as too idealistic; however, they not only set the limits to extremism, they also promote a more tolerant, empathetic, and inclusive society. The time to have a say about human rights in the virtual world is now, but it is also the time for large corporations to not only answer the questions about how they will assure their technology will be human rights-centric but to set a budget for human rights and put the money where our fundamental rights should be … starting now.
From 10 to 12 September, Unmanned Life team will attend 5G Asia where 5G core issues will be discussed to go beyond the hype around 5G. Discussions around concrete solutions, real business opportunities and major technology advancements will be at the centre of this event, in particular 5G commercialization, 5G RAN evolution, Spectrum and Standard, Network Evolution, 5G Automation and Virtualization and the 5G cloud. It is without say that Unmanned Life´s Autonomy-as-a-Service AI software platform will be at the heart of these 5G discussions by showing how concretely autonomous solutions will be enabled by 5G.
Michaela Jamelska about the future of Air Mobility in Europe: The integration of Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) systems into Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems will significantly contribute to understand the safe, secure and sustainable integration of Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and commercial drone operations. Unmanned Life platform will be responsible of the design and development of a simulation testbed which aims to inject data from manned and unmanned flights into GOF 2.0 systems. The first trials will take place in – 2021 between August and October in Estonia (Tallin & Tartu), Finland (Helsinki), Poland (Kąkolewo) and Austria (Graz). It will showcase that both manned and unmanned aviation can coexist in the airspace. This project arises from the fast-growing drone industry in Europe in all type of environments, including urban areas, and the need of a scalable U-Space architecture.
Ai could eliminate animal testing: Animal testing is still happening on a large scale with over 100 million animals undergoing tests for drug discoveries, diseases, pharmaceutical, or beauty industry purposes. However, new findings are showing that AI models can save the lives of millions of animals and replace the testings with computer vision and accurate datasets. This is one of the very possible alternatives to animal testings for drug discoveries. The emergence of quantum computing will make it possible due to large datasets and computing power. In 2016, Thomas Hartung led some researchers from Johns Hopkins University to successfully develop an artificial intelligence algorithm that determines substance toxicity after comparing it to similar databases and predictions from previously conducted animal testing. Not only we will eradicate cruelty, but the Ai will be able to achieve more precise results.
