AI Espouse RPA to Headway the New Era of Work

#artificialintelligence

In the breaking decade of technology, government agencies are quick to adopt new innovative measures. Automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are laying the path to achieve lofty productivity and decision-making. 'High value' work is the main focus of government agencies. For the purpose, robotic process automation and similar technologies are being embraced in order to decrease errors, improve compliance, and eliminate repetitive administration tasks. Robot process automation (RPA) is an application of technology that partially or fully automates human activities that are manual, rule-based, and repetitive.


Can AI Really Evolve into Superintelligence All by Itself?

#artificialintelligence

At Science earlier this year it was claimed that Darwinian evolution alone can make computers much smarter. As a result, researchers hoped to "discover something really fundamental that will take a long time for humans to figure out": Artificial intelligence (AI) is evolving--literally. Researchers have created software that borrows concepts from Darwinian evolution, including "survival of the fittest," to build AI programs that improve generation after generation without human input. The program replicated decades of AI research in a matter of days, and its designers think that one day, it could discover new approaches to AI. The program discovers algorithms using a loose approximation of evolution.


Assistant Professor in Explainable AI (tenure-track)

#artificialintelligence

We invite applications for a tenure-track position in computer science, focused on explainable artificial intelligence, and ability to collaborate with social sciences. DKE research lines include human-centered aspects of recommender systems, as well as a strong applied mathematics component such as dynamic game theory (differential, evolutionary, spatial and stochastic game theory). The position is supported by the large and growing Explainable and Reliable Artificial Intelligence (ERAI) group of DKE. The group consists of Associate & Assistant Professors, postdoctoral researchers, PhD candidates and master/bachelor students. The ERAI group works together closely on a day-to-day basis, to exchange knowledge, ideas, and research advancements.


Why AI is essential for controllers

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence is a hot topic. Applications based on machine learning make the news on a near-daily basis. Smart police cameras steered by algorithms can register drivers holding cell phones with great precision. Algorithms can dynamically determine the real-time prices for taxi rides, hotel rooms, airplane seats, and so on. High-frequency traders are getting rich as they sleep by letting their secret algorithms do the work.


AI Remote Learning for Professionals

#artificialintelligence

The way we work has changed and it's continuing to change. People are working remotely while being part of their team irrespective of the location. With this change, traditional training methods being restrictive and costly have become less relevant. One of the challenges faced by teachers is to provide customized learning catering to the needs of every student. As different students have different requirements, even teaching one student is an arduous task as the teacher is challenged to find the right curriculum to meet their requirements.


Regina Barzilay wins $1M Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence Squirrel AI award

AIHub

For more than 100 years Nobel Prizes have been given out annually to recognize breakthrough achievements in chemistry, literature, medicine, peace, and physics. As these disciplines undoubtedly continue to impact society, newer fields like artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics have also begun to profoundly reshape the world. In recognition of this, the world's largest AI society -- the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) -- announced yesterday the winner of their new Squirrel AI Award for Artificial Intelligence for the Benefit of Humanity, a $1 million award given to honor individuals whose work in the field has had a transformative impact on society. The recipient, Regina Barzilay, the Delta Electronics Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT and a member of MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), is being recognized for her work developing machine learning models to develop antibiotics and other drugs, and to detect and diagnose breast cancer at early stages. In February, AAAI will officially present Barzilay with the award, which comes with an associated prize of $1 million provided by the online education company Squirrel AI. "Only world-renowned recognitions, such as the Association of Computing Machinery's A.M. Turing Award and the Nobel Prize, carry monetary rewards at the million-dollar level," says AAAI awards committee chair Yolanda Gil. "This award aims to be unique in recognizing the positive impact of artificial intelligence for humanity."


Webinar: Introduction of NVIDIA A100 GPU on E2E Cloud

#artificialintelligence

The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU delivers unprecedented acceleration at every scale for AI, data analytics, and high-performance computing (HPC) to tackle the world's toughest computing challenges. As the engine of the NVIDIA data center platform, A100 can efficiently scale to thousands of GPUs or, with NVIDIA Multi-Instance GPU (MIG) technology, be partitioned into seven GPU instances to accelerate workloads of all sizes. And third-generation Tensor Cores accelerate every precision for diverse workloads, speeding time to insight and time to market. Pallab Maji is a "Senior Solutions Architect – Deep Learning" at NVIDIA working with System Integrators & Cloud Service Providers. His research interest lies in design and development of perception modules for autonomous systems, focusing mostly on Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning.

Genetic Algorithm-Everything You Need To Know

#artificialintelligence

Genetic Algorithm is a randomized search algorithm. A randomized search algorithm is an algorithm that incorporates some kind of randomness or probability in its methodology. Here in GA, a random process is used to create an initial population pool. A Population Pool is a collection of individuals of the current generation. After the population is created we evaluate the fitness value of each individual.


Hyundai Motor Group works with leading AI scholars
