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.

Year One of the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE: Case Studies in “AI for Good”

AI Magazine

The IBM Watson AI XPRIZE is a four-year competition where teams work to improve the world with artificial intelligence. The competition began in 2017 with 148 problem domains in sustainability, artificial general intelligence, education, and a variety of other grand challenge areas. 59 teams advanced to the second year of the competition and ten teams earned special recognition as “milestone nominees.” The properties of the advancing problem domains highlight opportunities and challenges for the “AI for Good” movement. We detail the judging process and highlight preliminary results from cutting the field of competing teams.



What is IBM Watson? An evolution in artificial intelligence and why technology won't kill us all

#artificialintelligence

In 2011, IBM sent its supercomputer Watson onto the popular American TV quiz show Jeopardy where it succeeded in matching wits with and beating two of the TV show's most successful players. That was over five years ago, but if you ask members of the public to describe IBM Watson, those in the know will say that it's a huge great black mainframe computer that's incredibly smart. Yet according to IBM, that's where you'd be wrong – the computing giant is adamant that the future of artificial intelligence will not be one big scary digital brain, and technology is definitely not going to kill us off one day. "When IBM Watson first came out, we used to think about it as a giant brain in a jar, but it's not that," John Cohn, an IBM Fellow in the IBM Watson Internet of Things (IoT) division tells IBTimes UK while showing us around IBM's new global IoT headquarters in Munich, Germany. "It's a bunch of tools that you can use to compose systems that interact naturally with humans, learns from their situation, adapting and then applying that knowledge.
