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) …
The first wave of AI is represented by expert knowledge or criteria developed in law or other authoritative sources and encoded into a computer algorithm, which is referred to as an expert system. Second-wave AI technology is based on machine learning, or statistical learning, and includes natural-language processing (e.g., voice recognition) and computer-vision technologies, among others. In contrast to first-wave systems, second-wave systems are designed to perceive and learn. Second-wave AI systems have nuanced classification and prediction capabilities but no contextual and minimal reasoning capabilities. Examples of second-wave systems include voice-activated digital assistants, applications that assist healthcare workers in selecting appropriate treatment options or making diagnoses, and self-driving automated vehicles. Third-wave AI technologies combine the strengths of first- and second-wave AI and are also capable of contextual sophistication, abstraction, and explanation. An example of third-wave AI is a ship that can navigate the sea without human intervention for a few months at a time while sensing other ships, navigating sea lanes, and carrying out necessary tasks. Strong AI, or artificial general intelligence (AGI), as a human-level and human-like AI, in which a machine will have human-like cognitive capability, remains a significant technical challenge, or rather a wild goose chase. The world is still in the realm known as'weak' or'narrow' AI, in which AI is optimised for specific, narrow tasks such as speech recognition, performing repetitive functions, chess-playing, image generation, self-driving cars, or weaponized AI. #machinelearning #artificialintelligence #nlp #AItechnology
For AI to flourish in healthcare, the industry must focus on the "algorithmically underserved," said John D. Halamka, M.D., M.S., president of Mayo Clinic Platform, at the HLTH 2022 conference this month in Las Vegas. Giving visibility to the algorithmically underserved -- individuals who do not generate enough data/are not well represented enough in health data sets for AI to make a determination -- is just one requirement to overcome the prospect of AI bias in healthcare. And identifying and fixing sources of AI bias must be a focus area for an industry that's striving for ethical and equitable AI development, shared Halamka. Dr. John Halamka is President of Mayo Clinic Platform, and a founding member of the Coalition for ... [ ] Health AI For example, what if there was a national registry that hosted all the metadata needed to power the responsible development of algorithms for use in healthcare? Building this kind of standardization into the relatively black box nature of AI development is among the priorities of The Coalition for Health AI (CHAI), which launched earlier this year.
The auction of the Portrait of Edmond de Belamy in 2018 made the world take notice of the creativity of artificial intelligence (AI), a trait believed to be possessed only by humans. Now, a set of AI algorithms coded by Mumbai-based Fluid AI has penned a book, Bridging the AI Gap, which the company claims is the first one to be completely written by AI algorithms. "AIs generally write small paragraphs for social media posts or a maximum of one-page-long blog posts. This is the first time they have written a full-fledged 102-page book," Fluid AI co-founder and CEO Abhinav Aggarwal said. It took the'AIs' just three days to write the entire book.
Expanded use of satellites may offer another acceleration catalyst to digital transformation, edge computing, and other evolving aspects of enterprise technology. That was a key takeaway from a panel of experts and industry stakeholders at last week's Satellite 2022 conference, held in-person and via livestream. During the discussion, those panelists hashed out some of the possibilities that satellite connectivity, supported by AI, can bring to digital transformation and the enterprise IoT market. The session, "Bandwidth-as-a-Service: A New Revolution in AI-Powered Satellite Connectivity," included Muneer Zuhdi, head of cognitive cities and industries for MEA enterprise with Nokia; Charles Ferland, vice president and general manager for edge computing and telecom with Lenovo; Jean-Philippe Gillet, vice president and general manager of networks for Intelsat US; executives from DETASAD; and Darren Pralle, senior director of product management with ST Engineering iDirect. The panelists talked up the infrastructure and data analytics possibilities that may expand further thanks to satellite communications, which are increasingly intersecting with cloud and other services.

I've always had a passion for learning and consider myself a lifelong learner. Being at SAS, as a data scientist, allows me to learn and try out new algorithms and functionalities that we regularly release to our customers. Often times, the algorithms are not technically new, but they're new to me which makes it a lot of fun. Recently, I had the opportunity to learn more about t-Distributed Stochastic Neighbor Embedding (t-SNE). In this post I'm going to give a high-level overview of the t-SNE algorithm.
