Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning - Business Optimizer

#artificialintelligence

Many claims have been made about the potential of artificial intelligence and machine learning – with predictions ranging from dystopian wastelands to intelligent societies in which we can all enjoy better health and leisure time. Which is closer to the truth? Whichever end of the utopia/dystopia scale you tend to err towards, it is worth considering the words of the late, great Stephen Hawkins. Despite benefiting from machine intelligence that enabled him to talk, Hawkins repeatedly warned about artificial intelligence one day spelling "the end of the human race". Since the 1980s, advanced computer-based speech prediction helped Hawkins cope with neurological disease.

Cortical.io : A Pioneering Natural Language Understanding Platform Processing Intelligent Text Analytics Insight

#artificialintelligence

Because of the exponential growth of text data, enterprises need to work shifting from numeric towards text information. Making sense of text information is becoming a key asset for businesses. Take an insurance company for instance: its whole business is dependent on text data since all its products are defined verbosely. All customer interactions happen in natural language. At the moment, the only way to deal with this mass of textual information is to use a human understanding of language.


Google's Imminent Map Maker Shutdown Opens Doors For Spammers To Quietly Sabotage Maps For Users

International Business Times

Google is terminating its Map Maker tool in 2017. While this may not be alarming for many users on the surface, this is seen as a big step toward dissolving the search giant's transparency per Search Engine Land contributor Joy Hawkins. On Thursday, Hawkins weighed in on the possible effects of Map Makers' shutdown and emphasized that the end of the tool in March 2017 could signal the start of more shady activities by spammers. According to Hawkins, this would just give spammers more freedom to make edits on the data that will be presented to users of Google Maps via the "suggest an edit" feature. Editing certain data on the Google Maps is not something new at all.

"When you are born, you know nothing." This is the kind of statement you expect to hear from a philosophy professor, not a Silicon Valley executive with a new company to pitch and money to make. A tall, rangy man who is almost implausibly cheerful, Hawkins created the Palm and Treo handhelds and cofounded Palm Computing and Handspring. His is the consummate high tech success story, the brilliant, driven engineer who beat the critics to make it big. Now he's about to unveil his entrepreneurial third act: a company called Numenta. But what Hawkins, 49, really wants to talk about -- in fact, what he has really wanted to talk about for the past 30 years -- isn't gadgets or source codes or market niches.
