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) …
For many organizations, Cloud Computing and the use of Cloud applications is the new norm. Employees are accessing their email and files while on the road--using both personal and business devices--because the Cloud makes data available from anywhere there is an internet connection. At the same time, organizations are falling victim to high-profile data breaches, exposing employee and customer personally identifiable information (PII) and payment card industry (PCI) data. This data is now being used by hackers in account takeover attacks, phishing schemes and more. This means that the same Cloud applications giving employees the freedom to work and access company data from anywhere now pose a problem for traditional security techniques.
In 2018, voice search was one of the hottest topics in the SEO community. A popular article by Wordstream listed a handful of statistics around voice search, starting with the misconstrued Comscore statistic that by 2020, 50% of searches would be done through voice. It turns out, this statistic was related only to voice search in China. Despite the inaccuracy in the U.S. and overall global market, the quote has reverberated through the SEO industry and pushed digital marketers to frantically prepare themselves by learning everything they could about voice search optimization. As 2020 approaches, marketers are now skeptical voice search will actually cause a cataclysmic shift to our marketing strategies.

Employers, recent graduates, people interested in technology and employees will be able to benefit from a new apprenticeship that has been created with the BBC, UK universities and a number of agencies. The Level 7 Artificial Intelligence (AI) Data Specialist Apprenticeship will give people the skills to help the BBC and others stay ahead in a data-driven future. In 2017, the BBC launched a major Data Science Research Partnership with eight UK universities. Working with a number of organisations such as BT, EasyJet and TUI, the BBC designed and developed this new apprenticeship. The scheme will give apprentices the required skills for postgraduate level careers in data science, data research or to become leaders in data – used by organisations to either attract new talent into the organisation or upskill existing employees.
Turn AI cameras on your employees and you can measure their productivity. Fly them over the Pacific Ocean and you've got yourself an automated shark-warning system. What's happening: UC Santa Barbara, with the help of a few AI experts from Salesforce, is using drones to monitor sharks near California beaches in real time.
In July 1958, the U.S. Office of Naval Research unveiled a remarkable invention. An IBM 704 – a 5-ton computer the size of a room – was fed a series of punch cards. After 50 trials, the computer taught itself to distinguish cards marked on the left from cards marked on the right. It was a demonstration of the "perceptron" – "the first machine which is capable of having an original idea," according to its creator, Frank Rosenblatt '50, Ph.D. '56. At the time, Rosenblatt – who later became an associate professor of neurobiology and behavior in Cornell's Division of Biological Sciences – was a research psychologist and project engineer at the Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory in Buffalo, New York.
LONDON – Artificial intelligence (AI) is all around us, generating excitement about how it could increase prosperity and transform our lives in multiple ways. Yet the technology is also likely to be disruptive. Policymakers and businesses must therefore try to capture the full value of what AI has to offer, while avoiding the downside risks. The idea of AI has been around for more than a half-century, and we have lived through previous periods of excitement followed by long stretches of disappointment – "AI winters" – when the tech didn't live up to the hype. But recent progress in AI algorithms and techniques, combined with a massive increase in computing power and an explosion in the amount of available data, has driven significant and tangible advances, promising to generate value for individuals, businesses, and society as a whole.
