25 Best Artificial Intelligence Colleges Successful Student

#artificialintelligence

Successful Student has compiled the 25 Best Artificial Intelligence Colleges in the United States. Artificial Intelligence (AI), also known as machine learning, is a discipline within computer science. Artificial Intelligence is usually conceived of as doing more than just computing numbers (such as a calculator), but is more conceptual in nature (such as describing subjective qualities, or giving meanings to different contexts). An example of AI would be speech recognition and communicating, such as Apple's Siri, or Amazon's Alexa. Amazon has announced three new AI tools for anyone wanting to build apps on Amazon Web Services: Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly, and Amazon Rekognition. According to Amazon "This frees developers to focus on defining and building an entirely new generation of apps that can see, hear, speak, understand, and interact with the world around them." For those interested in developing apps, see our 20 Best App Development Colleges article. Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft are all working on AI. Facebook's FAIR (Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research) program engages with academia to assist in solving long term problems in AI. Facebook is hiring AI experts around the world to assist in their project.

This article presents a summary of past and current artificial intelligence research within the Computer Science Department at East Texas State University (ETSU). The Computer Science Department at ETSU offers a master of science degree with an emphasis in artificial intelligence. AI research, both past and present, has been funded by a grant from E-Systems, Greenville Division. Other computing facilities available for artificial intelligence research are four workstations, each providing up to 20 users with LISP and PROLOG interpreters.


PhD Student in Informatics with a specialization in Data Science, HS 2016/469, application deadline July 11th, 2016 - University of Skövde

#artificialintelligence

The position is within Informatics, with a specialization in data science. At the University of Skövde Informatics is defined as the science that addresses how information is represented, processed and communicated in artificial and natural systems, and how such systems are used and developed in order to achieve usable and effective applications and solutions for individuals, organizations or society. Data science can overall be defined as the collection of theories, methods and techniques that all strive to convert large volumes of complex and heterogeneous data into knowledge that supports various decision-makers. Data science, thus, overlaps with traditional scientific disciplines, such as applied mathematics, information science, computer technology, statistics and computer science, along with a rapidly increasing number of application areas, e.g., business intelligence, biomedicine, textual analysis, geo-temporal analysis and medical and healthcare informatics. As one of the oldest and most prominent research groups in artificial intelligence (AI) in Sweden, the Skövde Artificial Intelligence Lab (SAIL) at the University of Skövde consists of more than 15 researchers conducting research within applied AI in close collaboration with businesses and organizations.

Google has announced this week that it will invest $1m in computer science research projects in Latin America within the next two to three years. Under the Google Research Awards in Latin America initiative, the search giant will grant one-year cash awards to universities to support the work of faculties and their full-time students. The project for the region will be run out of Google's Engineering Center in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Areas of research Google will support within Computer Science, Engineering and related fields include geo/mapping technology, human-computer interaction as well as information retrieval, extraction and organization, privacy and immersive experiences. Ericsson taps Swedish academia and industry to dig up use cases that might make 5G compelling for operators to invest in.


Eight from MIT receive 2018 Fulbright awards

MIT News

Eight MIT students and recent alumni have been named winners of Fulbright U.S. Student Program research awards. An additional student received an award but declined the grant to pursue other opportunities. Destinations for this year's Fulbright recipients include Germany, Switzerland, and other countries of the European Union; Chile; and Indonesia. Students' research interests range from astronomy, art criticism, architectural history, and biohacking to neuroscience, nuclear policy, and computer science. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Fulbright aims to build lasting connections between the people of the United States and the people of other countries through international educational exchange.
