Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Power: 5 Battlegrounds" is a game-changing new book by Rajiv Malhotra, analyzing society's vulnerabilities to the current AI revolution. In an Indian context, this is a one of a kind book, covering critical issues which most leaders and policy makers find uncomfortable, and would prefer to sweep under the rug. The author starts out by explaining how he scopes Artificial Intelligence. The topic of AI evokes extreme reactions from people some view it as a technological revolution that will usher an era of unprecedented progress and prosperity. Others tend to equate AI with the takeover of the world and of human kind by evil robots.
What are the challenges as robots become integrated into society? Learn about advancements in AI, machine learning and the potential when paired with increasingly sophisticated robotics. Unequivocally, the prominences of robotics, AI and a digitized banking landscape have many people worried about the influences these trends make on banking. Depending on to whom you listen, automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI) will either solve all our problems or end the human race. He also leads the development of PwC UK?s AI solutions and advises clients across many industries on identifying and delivering business results enabled by disruptive technologies such as AI and robotics.
Amazon's Alexa needs its own robotic body to reach its full potential, creators of the smart assistant say. It may mean future versions of the popular gadget are able to follow their owners around the house and listen to conversations with greater ease. Rohit Prasad, head scientist at Amazon's Alexa division, claims the only way to rid the AI-assistant of its shackles is to'give it eyes and let it explore the world'. He said this would be the only way for the devices to better understand the ambiguity and complexity of human language.

AI systems already display vision, language and controlled motor skills, but researchers are looking to answer the question: 'When will we have robots that can do housework, communicate in natural language conversations and defend themselves against discrimination?' At the global artificial intelligence conference IJCAI-ECAI 2018 held in Stockholm, Sweden, AI experts and research students from top universities around the world came together to discuss the state of AI as it stands today, and where we are headed in the not-so-distant future. "There won't be a Big AI Bang where complete AI systems suddenly surround us in the next year," says Christian Guttmann, Executive Director of the Nordic Artificial Intelligence Institute, "Instead, we will see more and more AI features being included in our products and services." Most researchers are in agreement – artificial intelligence will not become ubiquitous in a day. "The truth is, that despite tremendous advances in AI technologies, we are still far from having robot maids," according to Joyce Chai, Director of the Language and Interaction Research Group at Michigan State University.
J. William Middendorf, who lives in Little Compton, served as Secretary of the Navy during the Ford administration. His recent book is "The Great Nightfall: How We Win the New Cold War." Thirteen days passed in October 1962 while President John F. Kennedy and his advisers perched at the edge of the nuclear abyss, pondering their response to the discovery of Russian missiles in Cuba. Today, a president may not have 13 minutes. Indeed, a president may not be involved at all. "Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind. It comes with colossal opportunities but also threats that are difficult to predict. Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world."
