IBM Watson's New Job as Art Museum Guide Could Hint at Lots of Future Roles With Brands

#artificialintelligence

Almost three-quarters (72 percent) of Brazilians have never been inside a museum, according to a 2010 study from the Brazilian Institute of Economic Research. There are probably many reasons for this, but among them is the feeling that art can seem inaccessible unless you've studied it. So, how do you get art to speak to you specifically? By getting it to speak, period. For the launch of IBM Watson in Brazil, Ogilvy Brazil created an interactive guide that lets people have conversations with work housed at the Pinacoteca de São Paulo Museum.


How AI Helped Decode Ancient Geoglyphic Etchings In Peru

#artificialintelligence

Trapezoids, triangles and many other geometric shapes -- that's what one would see if they flew a drone over the high desert in Peru, South America. These giant geometric figures resemble birds, insects and other living beings. These are the famous Nazca lines which were discovered in the 1920s. In total, there are over 800 straight lines and 300 geometric figures. Archaeologists have been studying these lies ever since their discovery and still continue to do so till date.


IBM's Watson Takes On Yet Another Job, as a Weather Forecaster

#artificialintelligence

Weather Underground makes weather forecasts based on 8,000 public and 192,000 privately constructed weather stations across 195 countries. The company is adding 400 new stations across Asia, South America, and Africa, and it'll be integrating all of them with IBM's Watson language-learning AI (the one that played Jeopardy! So what exactly does this mean? It is creating a global weather forecast system tied into a number of worldwide businesses, and with that, a hope to outmaneuver one of the most costly, damaging variables in global industry--weather. When IBM bought The Weather Company/WU last October it immediately announced its intention to merge WU's 200,000 weather stations with Watson through the Internet of Things.


AI Influencers 2017: Top 30 people in AI you should follow on Twitter - IBM Watson

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence has been a dream in technology ever since Alan Turing first wrote his seminal paper, Computing Machinery and Intelligence, Now, thanks to advances in hardware power and algorithm design, AI is a growth industry – and it has no shortage of vocal advocates. These are some of the most vocal and influential leaders working on artificial intelligence, robotics, chat bots, virtual reality, the ethics of autonomous software and vehicles and more. Organizes the London AI meet up and the annual Research and Applied AI Summit. Thanks to all who kicked off discussion on the back of my piece on "6 areas of #AI/ML to watch closely" Keep going! She has expertise in designing intelligent systems into working AI systems to help understand natural intelligence.
