Jeff Kagan: How IBM Watson and AI is Changing Our Lives

#artificialintelligence

Last week I attended IBM (IBM) World of Watson as both a speaker and an attendee, and today as I sit in my neighborhood Starbucks (SBUX) thinking about everything, all I can say is WOW! This was one of the most interesting, inspiring and amazing events I have ever attended. And we are still in the very early stages of Watson, Cognitive and AI. I invite you to follow me as I learn more and write more about the wonderful world of Watson, all the companies that work with it and how it will change our industries, our businesses and our lives. As a wireless analyst and columnist, I come at this world of Watson from the wireless, telecom, internet and television angle.

Microsoft readies new Dynamics 365-branded HCM apps, virtual customer service agents

ZDNet

Microsoft is expanding its Dynamics 365 ERP/CRM portfolio with more apps in the human capital management (HCM) space. Microsoft introduced its first dedicated HCM application in April, called Dynamics 365 for Talent. That application, which became available for purchase in July, integrates with LinkedIn Recruiter and provides a consolidated HR profile, spanning Office 365 Dynamics 365 and LinkedIn profiles. At the company's Ignite IT pro conference in Orlando this week, Microsoft officials announced plans for two additional HCM apps: Dynamics 365 for Talent: Attract and Dynamics 365 for Talent: Onboard. Officials described these two new additions, which they said will be available later this year, as more modular software as a service (SaaS) apps.


A Machine Learning Landscape: Where AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, Qualcomm And Xilinx AI Engines Live

Forbes - Tech

Without a doubt, 2016 was an amazing year for Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) awareness in the press. But most people probably can't name 3 applications for machine learning, other than self-driving cars and perhaps their voice activated assistant hiding in their phone. There's also a lot of confusion about where the Artificial Intelligence program actually exists. When you ask Siri to play a song or tell you what the weather will be like tomorrow, does "she" live in your phone or in the Apple cloud? And while you ponder those obscure question, many investors and technology recommenders are trying to determine whether,,, or will provide the best underlying hardware chips, for which application and why.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is playing an increasingly influential role in the modern world, powering more of the technology that impacts people's daily lives. For digital marketers, it allows for more sophisticated online advertising, content creation, translations, email campaigns, web design and conversion optimization. Outside the marketing industry, AI underpins some of the tools and sites that people use every day. It is behind the personal virtual assistants in the latest iPhone, Google Home, and Amazon Echo. It is used to recommend what films you watch on Netflix or what songs you listen to on Spotify, steers conversations you have with your favorite retailers, and powers self-driving cars and trucks that are set to become commonplace on roads around the world.
