WE HAVE reached a stage where we cannot live without machines.
Yet, we are still uncomfortable with the notion that machines could make decisions that affect humans. It’s a conflict of master and slave, help and the help, control and the unknown.
At the Keep It Going — the Nth revolutioN discussion on Machine Learning, the panellists weighed in with their thoughts on how mchines will shape our future.
“No data, no AI,” explained Joe Keen Poon, MD (Smart Cities Solutions) Surbana Jurong. But how comfortable are you with sharing data? Will the rest of the eco system come along for the journey?
How Many Accounts Do You Have?
“The average Internet user has 90 accounts in different systems,” says Mikko Niemelä, CEO, Cyber Intelligence House.
With that comes cyber exposure. And from the dark web and deep web, arise opportunities to train machines to infiltrate your system and play havoc with your data.

Solving Problems And Finding Solutions
“How safe are machines? And why are we bothered about mathematics?” asks Liu Feng-Yuan, Co-founder of BasisAI.
The former civil servant ran the departpemnt that produced the Parking app that did awy with fiddly parking coupons, and figured out the rogue train that caused havoc on the Circle Line MRT.
It’s all well and good when machines help with making decisions. “But when you take the human out of the loop it scares people.”
Who Is Liable?
In coming to terms with new things, the legal fraternity becomes quite excited at the prospects of new ways of resolving potential problems.
What are the legal implications of machine learning. “Who is liable?” asks Dharma Sadasivan, Associate Director at BR Law.
While the journey is underway, it’s important to understand how decisions en route will have an impact on the end point — even if such a definite point is going to be continuously moved to a point on the horizon.
Panelists for the session: Liu Feng-Yuan, Co-founder, BasisAI; Mikko Niemelä, CEO, Cyber Intelligence House, Joe Keen Poon, MD (Smart Cities Solutions) Surbana Jurong; and Dharma Sadasivan, Associate Director, BR Law.
