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) …

Keya Medical has launched the DeepVessel FFR, a software device that utilizes deep learning to facilitate fractional flow reserve (FFR) assessment based on coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA). Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the DeepVessel FFR provides a three-dimensional coronary artery tree model and estimates of FFR CT value after semi-automated review of CCTA images, according to Keya Medical. The company said the DeepVessel FFR has demonstrated higher accuracy than other non-invasive tests and suggested the software could help reduce invasive procedures for coronary angiography and stent implantation in the diagnostic workup and subsequent treatment of coronary artery disease. Joseph Schoepf, M.D., FACR, FAHA, FNASCI, the principal investigator of a recent multicenter trial to evaluate DeepVessel FFR, says the introduction of the modality in the United States dovetails nicely with recent guidelines for the diagnosis of chest pain. "I am excited to see the implementation of DeepVessel FFR. It comes together with the 2021 ACC/AHA Chest Pain Guidelines' recognition of the elevated diagnostic role of CCTA and FFR CT for the non-invasive evaluation of patients with stable or acute chest pain," noted Dr. Schoepf, a professor of Radiology, Medicine, and Pediatrics at the Medical University South Carolina.
EdTech, or Educational Technology, refers to the use of technology to support and enhance teaching and learning. It can be a useful tool for educators by assisting to engage students, personalize learning, keep them safe and improve student outcomes. When it comes to the instructional methods and tools we use in our classrooms, there are several goals that educators may have in mind when selecting them. Therefore, knowing the types of technology available and the benefits of each is important. There are a variety of tools that have features promoting accessibility.
Cybersecurity is a critical issue in today's digital age, as cybercriminals continue to find new ways to infiltrate our systems and steal sensitive information. As the threat of cybercrime looms, it's becoming increasingly clear that traditional cybersecurity methods are no longer enough. But there's hope on the horizon: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the way we think about cybersecurity and defend against cybercrime. One of the biggest benefits of AI in cybersecurity is its ability to detect and respond to threats in real-time. We all know that traditional cybersecurity methods rely on pre-defined rules and signatures to identify and block malicious activity. But as cybercriminals continue to evolve and find new ways to evade detection, it's becoming clear that this approach is no longer enough.
On a recent episode of Dr. Phil, the host spoke with some of Jeffrey Dahmer's victims and showed them an interview he filmed with the father of one of America's most infamous serial killers. A 21-year-old Louisiana man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison after plotting a Jeffrey Dahmer-like scheme to meet men on the gay dating app Grindr and kill them, according to federal officials. Chance Seneca of Lafayette Parish targeted one particular victim, as well as other gay men, through the app in 2020 because of their sexual orientation and gender, the Justice Department said. "The facts of this case are truly shocking, and the defendant's decision to specifically target gay men is a disturbing reminder of the unique prejudices and dangers facing the LGBTQ community today," Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division said in a Wednesday statement. Clarke continued: "The internet should be accessible and safe for all Americans, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation. We will continue to identify and intercept the predators who weaponize online platforms to target LGBTQ victims and carry out acts of violence and hate."
For some residents of San Francisco, the robotic future of driving is just a tap away. Ride-hailing services from GM subsidiary Cruise and Alphabet company Waymo allow them to summon a driverless ride with an app. But some riders have become perhaps too comfortable with the technology. In a letter filed with a California regulator yesterday, city agencies complained that on three separate occasions since December, Cruise staff called 911 after a passenger in one of its driverless vehicles became "unresponsive" to the two-way voice link installed in each car. Each time, police and firefighters rushed to the scene but found the same thing: a passenger who had fallen asleep in their robot ride.
Technology has always had a significant impact on supply chains. In 2023, it is going to be more important than ever as the "Great Supply Chain Disruption" continues to challenge organisations around the world, according to SAPICS (The Professional Body for Supply Chain Management in Southern Africa). War, raw materials shortages, rising energy costs and extreme weather conditions are just some of the factors that will disrupt global supply chains in 2023, warns the non-profit organisation that aims to elevate, educate and empower the community of supply chain professionals across Africa. "In South Africa, the electricity crisis will continue to challenge businesses across all sectors. The negative impact on energy-intensive and irrigation dependent agricultural industries in particular will resonate through the entire supply chain – from the farm to consumers, who will have to pay more and have fewer competitive options available on supermarket shelves," says SAPICS president MJ Schoemaker.
ARTIFICIAL intelligence chatbot ChatGPT is causing controversy over its creepy ability to write just like a human. Students are using it to cheat on exams, copywriters are fearing for their jobs, and some people are even using its advice as a replacement for dentists and counselors. AI expert Lisa Palmer spoke exclusively to The U.S. Sun about ChatGPT concerns and the jobs she wouldn't trust it to do right now. Palmer has largely positive views on the AI chatbot and thinks we all should be using it. However, she thinks we need to be wary of its limitations right now and not put pure faith in it to do human jobs.
