Standing on the Shore*: How AI is Disrupting the World's largest Industries – Data Collective

#artificialintelligence

Standing on the Shore*: How AI is Disrupting the World's largest Industries Artificial Intelligence is undergoing a massive acceleration driven by rapid growth in available data and rapid evolution of algorithms. Intel's acquisition this Tuesday of our portfolio company Nervana Systems validates that our companies' platforms, driving this acceleration, are disrupting the world's largest industries. Our thesis is that a) increasingly powerful and inexpensive hardware that is machine learning/deep learning-friendly (lots of multipliers and fast memory; e.g., Nervana Systems), b) a flourishing of learning approaches running on that hardware, and c) large, novel data sets, now inexpensive to acquire and refresh, to train and drive those novel learning algorithms, is fueling a transformation of major global industries right in front of everyone's eyes. Mission-critical decisions can now be made in the face of huge amounts of even chaotic data, and life-or-death actions can be implemented in the real-world, at large scale, with dramatically less cap-ex and op-ex than ever before, thanks to the speed, clarity, and efficacy of commercially practical AI. We've been investing in this thesis for the better part of a decade along with a small number of like-minded folks**, and we expect that it will fundamentally disrupt every industry vertical.


Artificial Intelligence is big on Intel's agenda: Here's why

#artificialintelligence

There is no denying the fact that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one phenomenon that has stood out among other emerging technologies. Sensing great possibilities, global chip giant Intel has now joined the AI bandwagon in a big way. AI is not new to the world of technology but the past five years have given AI believers a reason to cheer as its uses are increasing across industries – from health care to autonomous vehicles – say AI experts at Intel. "AI capabilities are greatly supplementing humans to do great work in less time in sectors like healthcare, banking and finance, transport, energy and robotics, etc. It will be interesting to see how this whole AI thing evolves with time," Bob Rogers, Data Scientist, AI and Analytics, Data Center Group at Intel, told IANS here.

NEW YORK: There is no denying the fact that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one phenomenon that has stood out among other emerging technologies. Sensing great possibilities, global chip giant Intel has now joined the AI bandwagon in a big way. AI is not new to the world of technology but the past five years have given AI believers a reason to cheer as its uses are increasing across industries - from health care to autonomous vehicles -- say AI experts at Intel. "AI capabilities are greatly supplementing humans to do great work in less time in sectors like healthcare, banking and finance, transport, energy and robotics, etc. It will be interesting to see how this whole AI thing evolves with time," Bob Rogers, Data Scientist, AI and Analytics, Data Center Group at Intel, told.


Artificial intelligence reshaping wealth management

#artificialintelligence

Large wealth management firms – like the Big Six banks – eat into the market share. On the other side, robo-advisors are also eroding independent firms' market share, appealing to tech-savvy investors preferring the low-cost model and the mobile convenience that robos offer. Rather than competing with small, independent wealth management firms, it unveiled a new platform to help them. "On the one side we're working with certified financial planners" whose clients are invested in automated, low-cost ETF [exchange-traded fund] portfolios instead of higher-fee mutual funds.
