Andrew Ng: Why AI is the new electricity The Dish

#artificialintelligence

When you ask Siri for directions, peruse Netflix's recommendations or get a fraud alert from your bank, these interactions are led by computer systems using large amounts of data to predict your needs. The market is only going to grow. By 2020, the research firm IDC predicts that AI will help drive worldwide revenues to over $47 billion, up from $8 billion in 2016. Still, Coursera co-founder ANDREW NG, adjunct professor of computer science, says fears that AI will replace humans are misplaced: "Despite all the hype and excitement about AI, it's still extremely limited today relative to what human intelligence is." Ng, who is chief scientist at Baidu Research, spoke to the Graduate School of Business community as part of a series presented by the Stanford MSx Program, which offers experienced leaders a one-year, full-time learning experience.

How AI, AR, and Big Data Will Change the Future of Education - DZone AI

#artificialintelligence

Education has always been a hot topic among intellectuals and reformers. It has seen quite a change in the last decade or so, but not significant enough to get noticed. The new era of learning is still focused on keeping students in the classroom in the hopes that they will bring a better future to themselves and to society as a whole. The current education system has always been focused on a batch study where individual growth is never focused on. With the expansion of the internet, things have changed drastically, as now, anyone can do self-study using YouTube, Udacity, or TED.
