Artificial Intelligence Has Companies' Interest, But Not Their Cash

#artificialintelligence

Some 70 percent of companies claim they're using a form of artificial intelligence (A.I.), according to a new report by Constellation Research. That includes machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, and cognitive computing. But while companies are interested in what A.I. can potentially do for them, many aren't willing to invest massive amounts of money in the endeavor. Some 92 percent of respondents reported overall A.I. budgets of less than $5 million, with 52 percent paying less than $1 million. However, most plan to increase their A.I.-related spending over the next year.


From Founding One Of The Largest FinTechs To CEO Of The Largest EdTech - Coursera

Forbes Technology

Jeff Maggioncalda was recently named CEO of Coursera. I have interviewed both founders of the company, Andrew Ng and Daphne Koller, so I was curious about Maggioncalda's perspective on the company, education technology and the massive open online courses more generally, and his own background as an entrepreneur. Regarding the last point, Maggioncalda was previously the CEO of Financial Engines Inc, a company co-founded by economist and Nobel Prize winner William Sharpe and recently sold for $3 billion. During his 18 years as CEO of Financial Engines Inc, Maggioncalda had to pivot three times from his original idea before becoming a success. Financial Engines would go on to beocme the largest independent online retirement advice platform with more than $100b under management.


AI that can teach? It's already happening

Artificial intelligence could be heading to Australian classrooms -- and in schools overseas, it's already there. In Bahia, Brazil, 15-year-old students David and Roama from Colegio Perfil often start their school day at home, or on the bus. They pick up their phones, log into the education app Geekie Lab, and begin their classes from wherever they are. "You can access it everywhere, as long as you have your phone with you," David said. Students from Colegio Perfil in Bahia use phones or computers to access the Geekie app.


Get a massive slice of Raspberry Pi courses for only $19

Mashable

In 2012, upon discovering that the number of students wanting to study IT at the University of Cambridge had dwindled dramatically, Eben Upton began brainstorming for a gimmick to increase the number of enrollees. So he came up with the Raspberry Pi. The $35-a-pop minicomputer became an instant hit, sold like hotcakes worldwide, and has prompted the rise of amateur inventors. Innovative projects like voice-activated coffee machines, bow-tie spy cams, and humanoid robots were all spawned by that tiny piece of machinery. And you, too, could get in on the game and start a slew of your own creative projects with the Raspberry Pi.

Machine Learning Coursera

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. In this class, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself.
