It's only been a few years since Amazon unveiled the Alexa-powered Echo, but since then, smart speakers have become a major consumer-electronics category. Key to its success is the notion of the always-on virtual assistant, which other companies like Apple and Google have adopted as well. In fact, not only has Google made Assistant the driving force behind its Android smartphones, it has launched its own line of Echo rivals. But underneath all of this technology is the potential risk to your privacy. In just the past few months, news reports have uncovered a series of alarming revelations that companies like Amazon, Google and even Apple have been listening in on conversations without permission.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched general availability of its fully-managed Lake Formation platform designed to help organizations better manage their data lakes. The service helps with the building, securing, and managing of those data repositories. Lake Formation, which was initially announced at the AWS re:Invent show late last year, is built on AWS' Glue extract, transform, and load (ETL) service. It automates the provisioning and configuring of storage; crawls the data to extract schema and metadata tags; automatically optimizes the partitioning of the data; and transforms the data into formats like Apache Parquet and ORC for easier analytics. Data can be ingested from different sources using pre-defined templates.
In a provocative op-ed in the New York Times last week, PayPal and Palantir founder Peter Thiel argued that artificial intelligence is "a military technology." So, he asks, why are companies like Google and Microsoft, which have opened research labs in China to recruit Chinese researchers for their cutting-edge AI research, "sharing it with a rival"? Thiel's op-ed caused a big splash in the AI community and frustrated experts in both AI and US-China relations. An outspoken Trump backer, Thiel has been a leading voice pushing for tech to be more aligned with what he sees as America's defense interests -- and his messages have been influential among conservative intellectuals. Critics pointed out that Thiel had failed to disclose that his company, Palantir, has defense contracts with the US government totaling more than $1 billion, and that he might benefit from portraying AI as a military technology (a characterization of AI that experts dispute).

As the recently launched AI Monthly digest shows, significant improvements, breakthroughs and game-changers in machine learning and AI are months or even weeks away, not years. It is, therefore, worth the challenge to summarize and show the most significant AI trends that are likely to unfold in 2019, as machine learning technology becomes one of the most prominent driving forces in both business and society. According to a recent Deloitte study, 82% of companies that have already invested in AI have gained a financial return on their investment. For companies among all industries, the median return on investment from cognitive technologies is 17%. AI is transforming daily life and business operations in a way seen during previous industrial revolutions.

This May, the global group of Google AI Impact Challenge grantees gathered in San Francisco to kick off the six-month Launchpad Accelerator program. With $25 million in funding from Google.org, credits from Google Cloud and mentorship by Google's AI experts, the teams sought to apply AI to address a wide range of problems problems, from protecting rainforests to coaching students on writing skills. Now in the second phase of the program, Tech Sprint Week, the grantees tackled their projects' greatest technical challenges with support from a team of mentors from Google. At Google for Startups' campus in London, teams continued work on their ideas and learned user experience design principles along the way. Grace Mitchell, a data scientist at grantee WattTime, opened up about her team's experience at Tech Sprint Week--and how they're using AI to build a globally accessible, open-source fossil fuel emissions monitoring platform for power plants.
