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) …

I have always found Greek myths more interesting than the European fairytales by the Grimm brothers and Hans Christian Andersen. Not even Walt Disney could capture my attention like the tales told by Greek poets about the world of Zeus. Two myths in particular have parallels to our world today, especially given how Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics will re-shape society in the years ahead. The first myth tells how Prometheus created man out of clay. Athena, the goddess of wisdom, breathed life into the clay figures, but Zeus, the ruler of the gods, refused to give them fire.
There are a lot of big new areas in technology that have grown to immense popularity. Blockchain, cryptocurrency and artificial intelligence easily fit that bill. It seems that from CES to SXSW and every event in between we saw hundreds of companies in these industries using big buzz words and talking in their own little industry cliques about how they will dominate the world. But history in technology has shown one thing… They won't. That's why with crypto and blockchain we like companies like BeeToken and in artificial intelligence we like companies like Kyndi.
How developers are humanizing their virtual personal assistants. The virtual personal assistant is romanticized in utopian portrayals of the future from The Jetsons to Star Trek. It's the cultured, disembodied voice at humanity's beck and call, eager and willing to do any number of menial tasks. In its early real-world implementations, a virtual receptionist directed customers ('To hear more menu options, press 9′). It wasn't until 2011 that Apple released Siri and the public had its first interactions with a commercially viable, dynamic personal assistant. Since Siri's debut with the release of the iPhone 4S, Apple's massive customer base has only gotten larger; the company estimates that more than 700 million iPhones are currently in use worldwide.
Speaking at TEDx Talks, on how artificial intelligence can transform the education system, Scott Bolland, a cognitive scientist stated that 63 percent of learners are disengaged at school. That is, they are either physically or mentally absent when the teacher is teaching, and that's why only a few grasp the skills they need to make a meaningful life. Nonetheless, hope is coming to pull that number down, that I can bet. We've come from far and are definitely going somewhere. A few years back, you just needed at least a wooden blackboard and a chalk to say the classroom is equipped.
"From a customer perspective they need to research the trains that they are going to get on and to do that they need to search online. So every time somebody searches on our platform, we can see all the journeys that you searched for and the information that you got back. "You see that for every user, which is about 6-7 million searches a day, tens of billions a year, and that provides a large foundation for a lot of the recommendation work that we do and a lot of the price prediction."
Can Artificial Intelligence replace lawyers? Perhaps sometime in the distant future, but in the meantime AI is already augmenting the work done by legal professionals as startups race to reach that ultimate goal. One burgeoning player in the AI-powered legal tech space is Tel Aviv-based LawGeex, which has developed automated contract review technology to help companies sift through things like NDAs, supply agreements, purchase orders, and SaaS licenses, to ensure they're aren't any unsanctioned legal gotchas buried deep in legalise. Today, the company is announcing that it has closed $12 million in new investment. Led by VC fund Aleph, with participation from previous backers, including Lool Ventures, the new round of funding will be used by LawGeex to further develop its product, and build a bigger presence in the U.S. where it recently opened a New York office.
Will Smith has bad luck with robots. The actor suffered his worst defeat at the hands of a cyborg since 2004's I,Robot when he went on a hilariously awkward date with Sophia the Robot, who ended up banishing him to the friend zone when he leaned in for a kiss. Smith, 49, shared a video of his date with Sophia, who, he explained on Instagram, "represents state of the art Artificial Intelligence." After thanking @hansonrobotics for setting up the date, he added, "She is a super advanced humanoid robot capable of showing over 60 different human expressions -- interpreting human language and human emotion." The robot is able to respond to Smith in simple sentences, and her face expresses eerily real human emotions.
