Artificial Intelligence Panel



I am assigned part-time to work at the US DoD Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) so I have a high interest in AI for Solid.
I believe Solid will be a foundation for a user-centric ‘AI Assistant.’ Big Tech uses AI to provide assistance to the individual, by collecting data on us, which they also sell. One could reason Solid could do the same thing, in a private way. But it will be hard for a new app to ask the user to share personal data while keeping it private, so let’s discuss how.

I believe it is possible to anonymize data and also have strong user agreements, and then data (such as location, driving routes, purchase decisions, etc.) could be shared. But this will be hard to implement and might require some new standards. I’m working on standards for JAIC, so I am interested in any new ideas for new standards relating to Solid or AI, which I may be able to get the resources to develop. Let me know if anyone has any ideas on new standards. (I’m also involved in the ISO/IEC SC42 Artificial Intelligence standards committee.)

Perhaps you would be interested in joining this panel to develop proposals on this subject for the Solid specification?

I believe Tom is @tag42git on this channel (the other panellist)



Hi @JimSchoening,

Yes please join the artificial intelligence panel.

I’m not an expert in AI, I just have an interest in it and its intersection with Solid. I made a related post at Virtual Assistants need a soul. I’m on github as sideshowtom



Hi Jim,

Thank you for joining the artificial intelligence panel. I made a pull request for your review for the readme. It just includes some boilerplate and two placeholder projects: virtual assistants and neural networks, with the goals to identify and define standards needed for those. There’s no separate chat channel yet.



Hi, GAN (Generative Adversarial Network) are pretty new & cool if you hadn’t come across them before.

I wasn’t worried about AI taking my job as a ui designer until I saw that lol.


Thanks @jucole for that link about GANs. That looks really interesting. Please join the Artificial Intelligence panel if you can. At this point we are just collecting ideas for projects.
