Look out: Here comes the next wave of smarter, nimbler and more collaborative AI - Digirupt IO


When many think about the progress of AI and its impact on work, they envision a world where the robots and software thinking machines do all of the work and there's little room left for the work humans used to do. It's certainly not the future for the AI and human workforce that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) sees. DARPA is the agency that helped usher in the Internet, as well as the original expert systems of the 1960s through 1980s, as well as the big data analysis and machine learning systems that lay the foundation for natural language processing, self-driving cars, personal assistant bots. Now DARPA is leading the efforts to make AI and humans even more collaborative co-workers. AI has proven some of its value in the form of very targeted and specialized systems.
