How can Artificial Intelligence innovate the way we socialise?


Innovation in everything that we do is being driven by technology, including what we do on the internet. From social networking to our online searches, Artificial Intelligence assumes an undeniably significant role in studying our behaviour on digital media platforms and beyond. The greater part of the decisions we make in our day-to-day lives is mostly guided by AI-driven recommendations on our cell phones, personal assistants, chatbots, social network, or other AI technologies. Over 3.8 billion people are actively scrolling through one or the other social media platform such as Snapchat, LinkedIn, or YouTube at any given point of time. All these people and their conversations, searches, likes, dislikes, and more, are being thoroughly read to enable the machine to comprehend their preferences.

The #AI value chain, 1) AI chip and hardware makers who are looking to power all the AI applications that will be woven into the fabric of organisations big and small globally 2) The #cloud platform and infrastructure providers who will host the AI applications 3) The AI #algorithms and cognitive services building block makers who provide the vision recognition, speech and #deeplearning predictive models to power AI applications 4) Enterprise solution providers whose software is used in customer, HR, and asset management and planning applications 5) Industry vertical solution providers who are looking to use AI to power companies across sectors such as healthcare to finance 6) Corporate takers of AI who are looking to increase revenues, drive efficiencies and deepen their insights The today's AI is presented by what the BigTech and global social media platforms are pushing, it's Narrow /Weak AI /ML /DL, as "Cloud DL/AI Platforms".

So it is, Most curve-fitting AI tools available today sold as focused on predicting, identifying, or classifying things, a rote "learning from data/experience".

Can this artificial intelligence program replace writers, journalists and poets?


Seven years ago, my student and I at Penn State built a bot to write a Wikipedia article on Bengali Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore's play "Chitra." First, it culled information about "Chitra" from the internet. Then it looked at existing Wikipedia entries to learn the structure for a standard Wikipedia article. Finally, it summarised the information it had retrieved from the internet to write and publish the first version of the entry. However, our bot did not "know" anything about "Chitra" or Tagore. It did not generate fundamentally new ideas or sentences.

Adobe's 'Liquid Mode' uses AI to automatically redesign PDFs for mobile devices – TechCrunch


We've probably all been there: You've been poking around your phone for an hour, deep in some sort of Google research rabbit hole. You finally find a link that almost certainly has the info you've been looking for. Now you get to pinch and zoom your way through a document that's clearly not meant for a screen that fits in your hand. Given that the file format is approaching its 30th birthday, it makes sense that PDFs aren't exactly built for modern mobile devices. But neither PDFs nor smartphones are going away anytime soon, so Adobe has been working on a way to make them play nicely together.

Future Tense Newsletter: Make the Future Great Again


Politics are in the air, like that ominous reddish glow suffocating much of the West in recent weeks on account of all those tragic wild fires. This coming week we get our first presidential debate. A chance for Donald Trump and Joe Biden to shake hands and have a respectful, reasoned exchange of views on the future of the unfairly maligned Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act; the need to reform the Stored Communications Act; the wisdom of replicating Europe's General Data Privacy Regulation; the merits of taking antitrust action against Google for its manipulation of search results or against Amazon for its treatment of third-party sellers on its platform. Maybe we will even see the candidates reflect humbly on humanity's place in the universe, in light of the breaking news from Venus. The debate will probably be all tense, no future--maybe not as heated as a debate between 2016 Lindsey Graham and 2020 Lindsey Graham, but close.

The Future of AI Part 1


It was reported that Venture Capital investments into AI related startups made a significant increase in 2018, jumping by 72% compared to 2017, with 466 startups funded from 533 in 2017. PWC moneytree report stated that that seed-stage deal activity in the US among AI-related companies rose to 28% in the fourth-quarter of 2018, compared to 24% in the three months prior, while expansion-stage deal activity jumped to 32%, from 23%. There will be an increasing international rivalry over the global leadership of AI. President Putin of Russia was quoted as saying that "the nation that leads in AI will be the ruler of the world". Billionaire Mark Cuban was reported in CNBC as stating that "the world's first trillionaire would be an AI entrepreneur".
