Seven steps to integrate artificial intelligence into your company

#artificialintelligence

Martin Spano is the author of Artificial Intelligence in a Nutshell, a book that explores the mystified subject of artificial intelligence (AI) with simple, non-technical language. Spano's passion for AI began after he watched 2001: A Space Odyssey, but he insists this ever-changing technology is not just the subject of sci-fi novels and movies; artificial intelligence is present in our everyday lives. As we said in the previous sections, artificial intelligence brings many benefits for everyone, including companies. It can minimise costs, maximise revenue and optimise processes within a company. In this article, we'll outline how you can integrate artificial intelligence into your business.


Top 10 B.Tech Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Colleges In India

#artificialintelligence

Are you a student looking for the top 10 colleges for pursuing bachelor's/Btech in data science and artificial intelligence? In fact, as soon as a child passes high school, he/she starts to inquire about various colleges and universities which match his learning profile so that he gains proficiency in the subject which he decides to study. There are subjects that are not traditional in nature and require extra efforts to look into so that the right decision is taken. One such subject is Artificial Intelligence, which calls for counterfeit of human intelligence procedures by computers and other machines. This course requires expert faculty to teach so that students get adequate knowledge and are able to meet the industries' demands with their skills.

Microsoft's new supercomputer will train AI to outperform humans

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft has teamed up with a startup co-founded by Elon Musk to build one of the fastest supercomputers in the world, the company announced Tuesday during its annual Build developers conference -- held virtually this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. The startup is OpenAI, the charter of which underscores that it's working to ensure that AI which can outperform humans nevertheless benefits all of humanity. Microsoft stressed that this work represents a key milestone in a partnership announced last year to jointly create new supercomputing technologies in Azure. This is a first step, the computing giant explained, toward debuting large AI models "and the infrastructure needed to train them" as a platform that developers and other organizations can build on. "The exciting thing about these models is the breadth of things they're going to enable," said Microsoft Chief Technical Officer Kevin Scott in a company blog post about the news.


The Role Artificial Intelligence is Playing in the Fight Against COVID-19

#artificialintelligence

As the economy begins the slow process of re-opening, advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing are playing a key role not only in monitoring COVID-19 outbreaks, but how companies manage the unchartered landscape before them. Use of AI during the earliest days of the pandemic centered on tracking the spread of the disease around the world. Today, AI is playing a critical role in how pharmaceutical and biotech companies research and test treatments, and in the development of a vaccine. And now, as states begin to reopen, and businesses try to find the best path forward, these advanced technologies are enabling them to figure out how to do this safely and effectively. "Companies don't have historical data to work from because they've never dealt with a crisis like this before," said Katie Stein, chief strategy officer for Genpact, a global professional services firm that specializes in digital transformation.


Building A Simple Convolution Layer From Scratch

#artificialintelligence

A convolution layer provides a method of producing a feature map from a two-dimensional input. This is accomplished by running a filter over the input data. The filter is just a set of weights that must be trained to identify a feature in regions of the input data. These features can be things like edges, points, or more complex information. The filter will have dimensional constraints that indicate width and height, and it will scan over the input data.


Flying Cloud Technology Announces Strategic Partnership With Wireless Guardian

#artificialintelligence

Today Flying Cloud Technology announces it has entered into an OEM relationship with Wireless Guardian. Wireless Guardian is the world's first forward-facing human threat detection system and the most effective investigative security solution for today's high-tech environment. Providing protection to patrons and facilities, Wireless Guardian tracks both security and pandemic threats up to a mile outside the facility's perimeter. "Flying Cloud is extremely happy to enter into this strategic partnership with Wireless Guardian. We feel that this partnership will showcase the incredible strengths of both companies. Wireless Guardian will be an invaluable data source that is fed into and analyzed by Flying Cloud. This data will allow our joint customers to not only detect someone entering their facility with a temperature, but with our patented AI models, we can clearly show where they went in a facility and show who they were in contact with. Flying cloud is now the only company that can track both the user and the data that they interact with," said Brian Christian, CEO of Flying Cloud Technology.


AI Computing for Automotive: The Battle for Autonomy - EE Times Asia

#artificialintelligence

The 2025 market for AI, including ADAS and robotic vehicles, is estimated at $2.75 billion – of which $2.5 billion will be "ADAS only"... Artificial Intelligence (AI) is gradually invading our lives through everyday objects like smartphones, smart speakers, and surveillance cameras. The hype around AI has led some players to consider it as a secondary objective, more or less difficult to achieve, rather than as a central tool to achieve the real objective: autonomy. Who are the winners and losers in the race for autonomy? "AI is gradually invading our lives and this will be particularly true in the automotive world" asserts Yohann Tschudi, Technology & Market Analyst, Computing & Software at Yole Développement (Yole). "AI could be the central tool to achieve AD, in the meantime some players are afraid of overinflated hype and do not put AI at the center of their AD strategy".

Facebook details the AI behind its shopping experiences

#artificialintelligence

Facebook today announced improvements to the shopping experiences across its platform, including Facebook Shops, a new way for businesses to set up a single online store for customers to access on Facebook and Instagram. The company characterized the new products -- all of which are powered by a family of new AI and machine learning system -- as a step toward its vision of an all-in-one AI assistant that can search and rank products, while at the same time personalizing its recommendations to individual tastes. Ecommerce businesses like Facebook Marketplace lean on AI to automate a host of behind-the-scenes tasks, from learning preferences and body types to understanding the factors that might influence purchase decisions. McKinsey estimates that Amazon, which recently deployed AI to handle incoming shopper inquiries, generates 35% of all sales from its product recommendation engine. Beyond ranking, AI from startups like ModiFace, Vue.ai, Edited, Syte, and Adverity enable customers to try on shades of lipstick virtually, see model images in every size, and spot trends and sales over time.
