If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
To stay competitive and relevant in their industries, enterprises increasingly need to become AI-driven. AI is a new key to improving business processes, making better decisions, monetizing data, increasing security and more. The growing importance of AI in the enterprise is a point that industry observers now emphasize. Just consider this view from the global consulting firm Deloitte: "As AI technologies standardize across industries, becoming an AI-fueled organization will likely be table stakes for survival. And that means rethinking the way humans and machines interact within working environments."1
A Multi-Device Networked Multiplayer Shooter Game Post-MortemHoloLens Live Image We were tasked to make a multi-device networked multiplayer game for the mini-capstone in Game Development Advanced Programming Post Graduate Course at Sheridan College. There were four groups of two and one group of three students. Each group was assigned with three unique devices. My group members were:- 1. Abhishek Tippireddy 2. Dakshvir Singh Rehill (me) 3. PC with PS4 DualShock controller The mini-capstone game had to have the following components:- 1. 3 to 4 Unique Non -- Player Characters or any Artificial Intelligence components. Initial Plans Elemental Rifters, like all games, started with a huge scope.
Some of the world's most advanced countries in terms of artificial intelligence (AI) are not prioritising and practicing responsible AI, a report from Oxford Insight and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) has warned. In 2019, the Government AI readiness index reported that the UK led the world in terms of government use of AI. But the latest update for 2020 found that while the UK is still a leader on government AI, it lags many other countries in terms of the responsible use of AI. Richard Stirling, CEO of Oxford Insight, said AI was transforming banking and the way governments interact with citizens, but "that transformation is not happening in the same way in every country around the world". The index puts European countries in a strong position for AI adoption.
Investing in AI can help a business grow, while generating enterprise value. In this article, five experts provide their advice on how businesses can use AI to improve their business and products. "Businesses that deploy AI can expect sales growth through more precisely targeted and relevant customer engagements, more rapid scalability across business operations and greater productivity," says John Michaelis, an expert in the practical aspects of using AI and an experienced business consultant. He is also an active angel investor and board advisor for early-stage AI companies. He provides three essential tips for using AI to grow your business and generate enterprise value.
For the past couple of decades, there has been a loneliness pandemic, marked by rising rates of suicides and opioid use, lost productivity, increased health care costs and rising mortality. The COVID-19 pandemic, with its associated social distancing and lockdowns, have only made things worse, say experts. Accurately assessing the breadth and depth of societal loneliness is daunting, limited by available tools, such as self-reports. In a new proof-of-concept paper, published online September 24, 2020 in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, a team led by researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine used artificial intelligence technologies to analyze natural language patterns (NLP) to discern degrees of loneliness in older adults. "Most studies use either a direct question of ' how often do you feel lonely,' which can lead to biased responses due to stigma associated with loneliness or the UCLA Loneliness Scale which does not explicitly use the word'lonely,'" said senior author Ellen Lee, MD, assistant professor of psychiatry at UC San Diego School of Medicine.
Element Human CEO Matt Celuszak is working on making robots capable of understanding human emotions. Forbes associate editor Thomas Brewster talks at length with him to know how AI can go beyond facial recognition. Celuszak points out that artificial intelligence is good at spotting patterns. For instance, in a camera, your emotions draw up pixels which the AI tools can detect. His staff then take all the data and categorize them according to emotions like smiling.
One of the popular visual social media sites, Instagram has gained much traction over the last few years. Today, Instagram is not just a platform for sharing photos and videos, but it has also become an excellent platform for sharing educational information. Millions of people use Instagram with a majority of them being youths or young adults. Increase in the popularity and relevance of social media platforms has led the educators and other professionals to choose social network sites such as Instagram as a source to deliver educational contents. The platform includes short, crisp as well as informative posts on emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science and more. It has indeed become a parallel world of Data Science and AI enthusiasts on Instagram.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution just took a huge step forward, thanks to a breakthrough artificial intelligence (AI) model that can learn virtually anything about the world -- and produce the content to tell us about it. The AI program is GPT-3 by OpenAI, which started out as a language model to predict the next word in a sentence and has vastly exceeded that capability. Now, drawing from voluminous data -- essentially all of Wikipedia, links from Reddit, and other Internet content -- GPT-3 has shown it can also compose text that is virtually indistinguishable from human-generated content. Asger Alstrup Palm, Area9's chief technology officer, explained that GPT-3 was tasked with testing the "scaling hypothesis" -- to see if a bigger model with ever-increasing amounts of information would lead to better performance. Although it's too early to call the scaling hypothesis proven, there are some strong indications that this is, indeed, the case. Further validating the potential of GPT-3, Microsoft recently announced it will exclusively license the model from OpenAI, with the intention of developing and delivering AI solutions for customers and creating new solutions using natural language generation.

Gray Eagle drones were armed with HELLFIRE missiles and GBU-69 glide bombs, 155mm artillery weapons fired rounds 60km (37.3 miles) to destroy SA-22 enemy air defenses and armored ground combat vehicles directly hit multiple T-72 tanks during the Army's Project Convergence 2020 at Yuma Proving Grounds, Ariz. The real story, however, according to senior Army leaders attending the service's transformational combat experiment, was about data sharing, networked targeting and a cutting edge AI system called FIRESTORM. "The bullet flying through the air and exploding is interesting, but that is not what is compelling about Project Convergence. It is everything that happens before the trigger is pulled. We did not come out here for a precision-fires exercise, what we came out here to do is increase the speed of information between sensing the target and passing that information to the effector," Brig.
