Tackling massive uncertainty in supply chains with AI


Disruption to supply chains as the pandemic swept the globe has led many companies to reevaluate how well-equipped they are to handle system-wide volatility across networks. How is anyone to make sense of demand and supply patterns and manage overall health in the midst of this pandemic -- which has introduced a level of uncertainty that current enterprise tools are not designed to process? Working closely with our customers on a daily basis, we are being asked to help make sense of their demand signals across complex networks and hierarchies. We are also helping them predict and respond to impending supply imbalances within their 0-12 week execution windows, a critical source of value leakage and especially pertinent in current times. Faced with this fast-paced, multi-dimensional chess-game, customers need clear planning recommendations that improve fill rates, reduce inventory, minimize write-offs and control logistics spend.

Top 10 Advantages & Disadvantages of Artificial Intelligence?


Artificial Intelligence (AI) does not belong to the future – it is happening now. With the global AI software market surging by 154 percent year-on-year, this industry is predicted to be valued at 22.6 billion US dollars by 2025. Invented by John McCarthy in 1950, Artificial Intelligence is the ability of machines or computer programs to learn, think, and reason, much like a human brain. An AI system is fed in data and instructions, based on which the system draws conclusions and performs functions. It keeps learning human reasoning and logic with time, getting efficient on-the-go.

Artificial Intelligence vs. Machine Learning vs. Deep Learning: What's the Difference


In 2020, people benefit from artificial intelligence every day: music recommender systems, Google maps, Uber, and many more applications are powered with AI. One of popular Google search requests goes as follows: "are artificial intelligence and machine learning the same thing?". Let's clear things up: artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and deep learning (DL) are three different things. The term artificial intelligence was first used in 1956, at a computer science conference in Dartmouth. AI described an attempt to model how the human brain works and, based on this knowledge, create more advanced computers. The scientists expected that to understand how the human mind works and digitalize it shouldn't take too long.

An AIer's Lament

AI Magazine

It is interesting to note that there is no agreed upon definition of artificial intelligence. Because government agencies ask for it, software shops claim to provide it, popular magazines and newspapers publish articles about it, dreamers base their fantasies on it, and pragmatists criticize and denounce it. Such a state of affairs has persisted since Newell, Simon and Shaw wrote their first chess program and proclaimed that in a few years, a computer would be the world champion. Not knowing exactly what we are talking about or expecting is typical of a new field; for example, witness the chaos that centered around program verification of security related aspects of systems a few years ago. The details are too grim to recount in mixed company.

'Valorant' plays like a finely tuned instrument. Is it really the next big thing?

Washington Post - Technology News

Like a stunning chess match or the work of an artisan watchmaker, "Valorant" is a game that is exciting to observe. It's a game I wish I could solve, and find the precise sequence of abilities and counters that would lead to victory. But while the moment to moment play -- the split second decisions and micro dramas of player encounters that terrace up to the final encounter of the round -- can be exhilarating, the net effect is exhaustion. Although "Valorant" is about time, in a sense, I am not sure that it has nailed a good length for its games. Rounds traditionally last 45 minutes or so, and no matter how a game goes, my mental state at the end of a first-to-13 match is usually one of bargaining. Staring at the scoreboard after a match, I can feel the full weight of my body, the crane in my neck, the vaporous, carcinogenic feeling in the blood when you sit in one place for too long.

What Does "Artificial Intelligence" Really Mean?


Before IBM's Deep Blue computer program defeated world champion Garry Kasparov in chess in 1997, ... [ ] many AI pundits believed that machines would never possess the creativity required to rival humans at the game. Years ago, Marvin Minsky coined the phrase "suitcase words" to refer to terms that have a multitude of different meanings packed into them. He gave as examples words like consciousness, morality and creativity. "Artificial intelligence" is a suitcase word. Commentators today use the phrase to mean many different things in many different contexts. As AI becomes more important technologically, economically and geopolitically, the phrase's use--and misuse--will only grow.

Seventy years of highs and lows in the history of machine learning


Cold War concerns U.S. government agencies like the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) fund AI research at universities such as MIT, hoping for machines that will translate Russian instantly. I'm afraid I can't do that." The winter lasts two decades, with just a few heat waves of progress. Common-sense AI Douglas Lenat sets out to construct an AI that can do common-sense reasoning. He develops it for 30 years before it is used commercially.

Artificial Intelligence to Predict Outcome of Football Matches


TORTOLA, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS / ACCESSWIRE / June 8, 2020 / BVI Tortola sports hedge fund AI Sports targets Asia as its core market and aims to soon having tens of millions of dollars under management. AI Sports - which has an investment fund that bets on sport on behalf of members, and trades or hedges its bets looks to be the first sports wealth management fund to set foot into Asia. In recent years, with the rise of big data analytics and machine learning technology, artificial intelligence (AI) technology has been gaining popularity in different business applications, and has achieved wonderful results in applications such as search engines, personalized recommendations, and intelligent customer service, etc. AI Alpha Go, an AI computer program developed by DeepMind Technologies and acquired by Google even manage to defeat the Chess Master World Champion in 2017. This proves that AI technology has reached maturity and is able to replace human expertise in some highly intelligent industries. The Financial Investment sector is undoubtedly the most valuable and challenging sector for any artificial intelligence applications.

Introduction to Machine Learning for Beginners


We have seen Machine Learning as a buzzword for the past few years, the reason for this might be the high amount of data production by applications, the increase of computation power in the past few years and the development of better algorithms. Machine Learning is used anywhere from automating mundane tasks to offering intelligent insights, industries in every sector try to benefit from it. You may already be using a device that utilizes it. But there are much more examples of ML in use. It was in the 1940s when the first manually operated computer system, ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer), was invented.

Machine learning: What's the difference between supervised and unsupervised?


Machine learning, the subset of artificial intelligence that teaches computers to perform tasks through examples and experience, is a hot area of research and development. Many of the applications we use daily use machine learning algorithms, including AI assistants, web search and machine translation. Your social media news feed is powered by a machine learning algorithm. The recommended videos you see on YouTube and Netflix are the result of a machine learning model. And Spotify's Discover Weekly draws on the power of machine learning algorithms to create a list of songs that conform to your preferences. But machine learning comes in many different flavors.
