Viewpoint: An Intelligent Approach to AI - Mobile Marketing


The phrase'hype cycle' could have been invented for the mobile marketing industry. Typically, a new tech's day in the sun lasts anything from six – 12 months, before the next big thing comes along. Think about Native, Wearables, Programmatic, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. All came, all are still very much around, but each has been superseded by the next. And if VR was last year's big thing, AI (Artificial Intelligence) is this year's, infiltrating an increasing number of aspects of our daily lives. In the home, there's Amazon Echo, the personal assistant which responds to your voice to tell you how your commute is looking, what the weather's doing, or what's happening in the news. Whether Echo qualifies as AI in its current guise, however, is a moot point. Ask it something it doesn't know the answer to and, in my experience to date, it will remain ignorant of the answer, no matter how many times you ask it.

The Real Dangers of Assisted and Augmented Reality


So, I'm struggling a bit with the idea of applying machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies to everything around me. Google recently gave me a Google Home device; I'm not quite sure why. Maybe they wanted to give it more real world voice recognition training opportunities. Maybe they wanted me to write about it, as good social marketing. Maybe they wanted to hear how I'm advising their competitors, naughty, naughty. I don't like the idea of it listening to my conversations. My wife really doesn't like it listening to her.

Facebook's Augmented Reality Engine Brings AI Right to Your Phone


When Hussein Mehanna showed off a new incarnation of Facebook's Big Blue App back in November, it seemed a tiny improvement--at least on the surface. The app could transform a photo from your cousin's wedding into a Picasso or a Van Gogh or a Warhol, a bit of extra fun for your social media day. But with this bit of extra fun, Mehanna and his team of Facebook engineers were laying the groundwork for an audacious effort to change the future of computing--what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg calls a platform for augmented reality.
