The speed with which humans are improving A.I. is increasing, but once the singularity occurs, A.I. will create better A.I. at an exponential rate. Think new iterations of software in a matter of seconds, not months. Imagine the capabilities of an artificial intelligence whose computational capability exceeds that of all humans combined -- and a few seconds later of all humans who have ever lived. It could cure cancer in nanoseconds. Could, in fact, cure cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease and ebola in a fraction of a second.
International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) announced three new servers built for cognitive computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). These are three buzzwords for essentially the same thing: computer systems that learn how to solve more and more complex real-world problems and understand the world like humans. The automated machine learning technology of Watson, IBM's cognitive computing software platform, is at the forefront of AI research, but there are practical spin-offs that can already be used in advanced medical applications and commercial applications built on the Watson Developer Cloud. The new servers are part of IBM's Linux specialized server portfolio co-developed with members of the OpenPOWER Foundation. The OpenPOWER ecosystem includes a wide variety of computing solutions that use IBM's open POWER processor technology.
Interested in shaping the future of cyber/data security and having an impact on the UK's economy?Are you an up and coming cyber security engineer with an interest in artificial intelligence and machine learning in a business context, looking to accelerate your career? Are you interested in understanding the role of human behaviour in cyber security? If so this may be the role for you. We're looking to appoint an enthusiastic and dynamic graduate.

Its Computer Science program was ranked among the top 25 in the world in 2015 by QS. The Cheriton School is part of Waterloo's highly regarded and unique Faculty of Mathematics, which also placed in the top 20 in the 2015 QS rankings With those credentials, it is little wonder that the Faculty has more than 7,500 graduate and undergraduate students. The unit's unique blend of computer scientists, mathematicians and statisticians comprise 250 full-time professors. Its researchers lead the scientific community with the depth of their work and the wide spectrum of computer science, mathematics and statistics topics covered. They span the range from theoretical foundations to the immediately practical in all areas.

"At the University of Waterloo, we build innovative, high-impact platforms, systems, and applications for tackling the big data challenge," says Prof. Jimmy Lin. To produce globally influential technology leaders, the Cheriton School has formed 16 different research groups of professors and graduate students, who explore innovations in a myriad of areas such as human computer interaction, machine learning and artificial intelligence, algorithms and complexity, bioinformatics, information retrieval and database systems, symbolic computation, and quantum computing. The Cheriton School is a world leader in computer security and privacy, developing and researching tools used by millions of people every day to protect the security, privacy, and integrity of their online communications.
