#artificialintelligence

I can't think of a reference to the intellect that would feel more unauthentic and fake. It's no wonder people turn to The Terminator or The Matrix to fathom what it's all about. Fortunately, after 60 years of AI rumors fueled by academia and movies, we're finally starting to see signs that it means more than just robots taking over. Working in the tech industry, it's ironic that the AI lightbulb clicked not through an understanding of machine learning or engineering -- but through the human challenges we face in the technology world. While at Yahoo! and Apple, it was amazing to be part of technologies that not only helped enable the modern cloud today but continue to support its more than doubling in performance every year.

The Rising Tide of China's Human Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

On Jan. 15, FBI agents arrested Jerry Chun Shing Lee, a former CIA case officer, and charged him with unlawful retention of classified information. Lee is the sixth person charged by the Justice Department in the past two years for espionage-related offenses suspected to have been conducted on behalf of the People's Republic of China. By comparison, prior to 2015, only one or two people on average per year were arrested for such offenses. The increased frequency of arrests--coinciding with a public March 2016 announcement by the Chinese government that intelligence efforts would be more heavily resourced--may indicate that China is scaling up traditional human intelligence efforts against the United States government. Lee's arrest seemingly stemmed from FBI agents' discovery of classified information in his notebooks in 2012.
