Analysts predict that artificial intelligence will be a $14 billion industry by 2023


A recent report asserts that the artificial intelligence (AI) industry will reach a compound annual growth rate of 17.2 percent by 2023. As for geography, North America is expected hold the majority of the AI industry's market share by 2023, but Europe and the Asia-Pacific region will see significant growth thanks to the rapid pace of urbanization in some areas, increasing use of smartphones, and robust automotive sectors. The big question is whether AI and automation can produce enough new jobs to ensure that the people being replaced aren't left unemployed. In the U.S., some have predicted that 7 percent of jobs will be lost to automation by 2025, and a recent study found that as many as 10 million jobs in Great Britain could be swallowed up by automation over the next 10 years.



Artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and cloud technologies are increasingly appearing on the horizon. These three key technologies can fuel the financial services industry's evolution into the digital age. The advances in cloud technologies permit software applications to move seamlessly between legacy, private cloud, and public cloud solutions. Potential impacts of financial services' digital evolution include: Security is now a bottom-line concern.

What IBM's Watson Found After Analyzing 'Game of Thrones' Characters


In a finely timed bit of marketing, IBM researcher Vinith Misra used a Watson program called Personality Insights to analyze how Game of Thrones characters have evolved in the first five books--and anticipate what readers might expect in the sixth book. For example, when Watson is determining a character's altruism score, it's picking out first-person plurals ("we," "us," "our," "ours") and words like courage, bravery, daring, certain, definite, confident, easy, and faith. Likewise, when determining a character's assertiveness score, Watson looks for words such as fight, forgive, gave, meet, negotiate, explain and persuade. When Watson is determining a character's emotionality score--a trait combining self-awareness, empathy, and passion--it looks for words like hugging, holding, ache, alcohol, affection, admire, adore, and grin.

Supercharge healthcare with artificial intelligence


Pattern-recognition algorithms can transform horses into zebras; winter scenes can become summer; artificial intelligence algorithms can generate art; robot radiologists can analyze your X-rays with remarkable precision. Artificial intelligence began with the Turing Test, proposed in 1950 by Alan Turing, the scientist, cryptanalyst and theoretical biologist. The LISP language emerged out of the 1980s, with natural networks integrating with autonomous vehicles. Innovation was further inspired in 2004 when DARPA hosted the first design competition for autonomous vehicles in the commercial sector.

Google Assistant can order around LG's connected appliances


LG has placed its trust on Google Assistant and has given it the power to control its smart appliances. Now, you can control any of the company's 87 WiFi-connected smart home appliances by barking out orders through a Google Home speaker or through a compatible iOS or Android smartphone. Once you're done setting voice control up through LG's SmartThinQ app, you can use commands within a Home speaker's range or through a phone to tell your fridge to make more ice or to tell your AC to adjust the temperature. To entice new customers to put the feature to good use, LG is giving away a free Google Home device with a WiFi-enabled LG appliance.



Today, Oath, the Verizon-owned company born of the merger between AOL and Yahoo, released the source code of a data-crunching tool called Vespa, which has long-powered search and other features across the Yahoo empire.

Don't Laugh: Yahoo's Open Source AI Has a Secret Weapon Vespa's history traces back to the Norwegian search engine AlltheWeb, which Yahoo acquired in 2004. By making Vespa open source, Oath VP of engineering for big data Peter Cnudde says the company hopes to replicate the benefits it has reaped from supporting Hadoop, an open-source software framework for managing big data.
