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) …
To overcome this challenge, recently there have been increased efforts to accelerate quantum simulations with machine learning (ML). This emerging interdisciplinary community encompasses chemists, material scientists, physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists, joining forces to contribute to the exciting hot topic of progressing machine learning and AI for molecules and materials. The book that has emerged from a series of workshops provides a snapshot of this rapidly developing field. It contains tutorial material explaining the relevant foundations needed in chemistry, physics as well as machine learning to give an easy starting point for interested readers. In addition, a number of research papers defining the current state-of-the-art are included.
An AI developed in Vienna is now debuting in the art business, and will curate the Bucharest Biennale. Practitioners in the arts labour under the misapprehension that the human factor of creativity would shield them from the depredations of artificial intelligence. It is assumed that like machines freed us from physical labour, machine intelligence would rid us of intellectual chores. They would put production line workers, bookkeepers, bank tellers and inventory managers out of work, but novelists and artists, and the marketing networks which have developed around their products, would be unharmed. A computer at Stanford which has digested the complete works of Shakespeare does almost passable knockoffs.
In the world of SEO, it's important to understand the system you're optimizing for. Another crucial area to understand is machine learning. Now, the term "machine learning" gets thrown around a lot these days. But how does machine learning actually impact search and SEO? This chapter will explore everything you need to know about how search engines use machine learning.
National security and antitrust are rarely part of the same conversation. The realities of today's AI ecosystem should challenge that dynamic. American AI innovation is concentrated in the private sector--particularly within its largest, most dominant firms. As these firms face antitrust scrutiny, policymakers and lawmakers alike need to consider the AI ecosystem that they will have a hand in creating. They will need to contemplate its competitiveness, its innovativeness, its responsiveness to defense and national-security needs, and its accessibility to government.
The outbreak of COVID- 19 has made jobless a lot of workers, now Artificial Intelligence has started taking over people's jobs. Several industries have already been affected in several sectors by the intrusion of artificial intelligence, and journalism turns out not to be an exception. Microsoft has recently fired dozens of journalists, who were responsible for arranging and editing news stories to be replaced with automatic systems. At a time when Indian news media companies are sacking employees due to COVID related economic downfall, the possibility of robots is now a major threat to our job security. Artificial Intelligence is still in its early stages, but it will be interesting to see how it will change the fourth pillar of democracy, in the era of web journalism and shouting debates on Prime Time TV news.
A team of researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the City University of Hong Kong has introduced a local-to-global approach that can generate lifelike human portraits from relatively rudimentary sketches. Recent deep image-to-image translation techniques have enabled the prompt generation of human face images from sketches, but these methods tend to suffer from overfitting to their inputs. They thus achieve the most realistic results only when the source drawings have high-quality artistry or are accompanied by edge maps. Unlike most deep learning based solutions for sketch-to-image translation that take input sketches as fixed, 'hard' constraints and then attempt to reconstruct the missing texture or shading information between strokes, the key idea behind the new approach is to implicitly learn a space of plausible face sketches from real face sketch images and find the point in this space that best approximates the input sketch. Because this approach treats input sketches more as'soft' constraints that will guide image synthesis, it is able to produce high-quality face images with increased plausibility even from rough and/or incomplete inputs.
