Apple Inc (AAPL): Machine Learning Emerges As the Primary Innovative Weapon

#artificialintelligence

When it comes to innovation in technology, one cannot simply ignore Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). It has turned out to be the biggest name in the tech sector with its operating system and services that make it unique amid competition. The tech juggernaut was the first major company to assimilate a smart assistant into its operating system (OS) known as Siri. It was the adaptation of a standalone application, which Apple had bought along with the brains behind its development in 2010. As the tech industry started to evolve rapidly, it also compelled the tech juggernauts to increase the pace of their innovation in their respective products and services.


Google Brain Co-Founder Teams With Foxconn to Bring AI to Factories

Consumers now experience AI mostly through image recognition to help categorize digital photographs and speech recognition that helps power digital voice assistants such as Apple Inc's Siri or Amazon.com But at a press briefing in San Francisco two days before Ng's Landing.ai In many factories, workers look over parts coming off an assembly line for defects. Ng showed a video in which a worker instead put a circuit board beneath a digital camera connected to a computer and the computer identified a defect in the part. Ng said that while typical computer vision systems might require thousands of sample images to become "trained," Landing.ai's

Alibaba e-commerce merchants turn to AI for content creation

ZDNet

Alibaba has introduced an artificial intelligence (AI) tool that it says can produce up to 20,000 lines of content a second, helping merchants on its retail sites generate product information without humans. Unveiled through its digital marketing unit Alimama, the Chinese e-commerce giant said the copywriting tool analysed "millions of existing samples" on Alibaba's online platforms Tmall and Taobao. It used deep learning models and natural language processing technologies to produce content. The US online retailer finally introduces Amazon Prime in Singapore but the launch has been described as "piecemeal", which should give Alibaba even more room to expand its own footprint in the region. Alimama's general manager Christina Lu noted that the AI system was not able to replace human's ability to be creative and, instead, would enable people to focus more energy on "richly creative work".

There was a time, not too long ago, when Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) was the undisputed king of retail. However, e-commerce has changed the landscape, and over the last few years, Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has been taking an increasingly large slice of the retail pie. These sophisticated algorithms can recognize patterns and distinguish differences when fed reams of seemingly unrelated data. This has led to advances in image processing, voice recognition, and natural language processing.
