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) …
US safety regulators have opened 30 investigations into Tesla crashes involving 10 deaths since 2016 where an advanced driver assistance system was suspected to have been in use. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a list offering details about crashes under review by its special crash investigations programs. The agency, which has previously confirmed some specific Tesla crash investigations, had not previously released to Reuters a full accounting of all Tesla crashes investigated where Tesla's Autopilot system was suspected of being involved. Of the 30 Tesla crashes, NHTSA has ruled out Tesla's Autopilot in three and published reports on two of the crashes. Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Artificial Intelligence was established in the year 2019 in the Faculty of Engineering and Technology after the approval by the Executive Council, Aligarh Muslim University. One of the major objectives of the establishment of this Centre is to promote interdisciplinary research and development activities in Artificial Intelligence and its allied fields including Machine learning, Data Analytics, Natural language processing, etc. The faculty members attached to this Centre are from different fields of Engineering and Science with international exposure and a good publication record. The Centre aims to conduct masters and doctoral research programmes in the area of Artificial Intelligence. The Centre is poised to prepare the students to demonstrate technical competence in their profession by applying knowledge of contemporary advances in AI for providing practical and innovative solutions.
In a paper published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Nature last week, scientists at Google Brain introduced a deep reinforcement learning technique for floorplanning, the process of arranging the placement of different components of computer chips. The researchers managed to use the reinforcement learning technique to design the next generation of Tensor Processing Units, Google's specialized artificial intelligence processors. The use of software in chip design is not new. But according to the Google researchers, the new reinforcement learning model "automatically generates chip floorplans that are superior or comparable to those produced by humans in all key metrics, including power consumption, performance and chip area." And it does it in a fraction of the time it would take a human to do so. The AI's superiority to human performance has drawn a lot of attention.
World-class talent makes a company not only successful on paper but also an exciting and energetic place to work. In the nearly six years I've been with Teckro, we continue to expand our leadership team and bring on many talented new hires across all disciplines – engineering and product, our services team, and many new faces on the commercial side. Today we introduce two of our newest "Teckronauts" – Malia Lewin and Silvina Baudino, both joining to scale our global market strategy. Malia: Right now, the life sciences industry is leveraging technology to change the game of scientific discovery. There are beautiful, sophisticated, amazing things happening in the lab, but these are often hampered from getting to market and saving the lives of patients because of old, slow, paper-based models.
Digital Twins are a digital representation of physical assets that utilize IoT data, enabling use cases such as predictive maintenance. Juniper Research expects that total global spend on Digital Twins will reach $12.7 billion by 2021; an increase of 17% from $10.8 billion in 2019. Manufacturing will be the single biggest sector for Digital Twins deployment; accounting for 34% of total spend in 2021, followed by energy & utilities at 18%. Digital Twins are not standalone products, and so must be implemented as part of a wider Industrial IoT strategy. While IoT sensors generate enormous amounts of data in the industrial setting, interpreting this data and putting it into operation requires a collaborative approach based on open platforms.
