Smart Farming, or the Future of Agriculture

#artificialintelligence

We are a Ukraine-based company which means that our parents and grandparents lived in the era of infamous Soviet collective farms, where tractors were considered to be an ultimate technology. For them, a smart farm will sound like a fairy tale. So let it be, a fairy tale of a smart farm. First of all, what is a smart farm? Smart Farming is a concept of farming management using modern Information and Communication Technologies to increase the quantity and quality of products.


AI, Machine Learning Are Helping Retailers Spot Flaws in the Customer Experience

#artificialintelligence

More than a quarter (29%) of respondents said they use artificial intelligence (AI) to help streamline customer experiences, per Isobar. An additional 46% anticipate using AI in the future. Similarly, 36% of respondents said they're currently using machine learning, with an additional 37% who anticipate using it in the future. To better understand how these technologies are being leveraged, we spoke with Mario Ciabarra, founder and CEO of digital intelligence platform Quantum Metric. What are some common flaws in the ecommerce customer experience?


Best Devices with Artificial Intelligence for Your Home

Artificial Intelligence used to be a fictive narrative from Isaac Asimov's novels and futuristic films. Today it's 2019, and AI is no longer just a product of imagination. Let's take a look at the world's favorite futuristic movies. We already have them in every household. These can be easily found on Amazon and even your local Home Depot.


How Is Machine Learning Helping Cyber Defense?

#artificialintelligence

The cyber defense needs to be constantly adapted in order to keep up with the developing threats thanks to more sophisticated technology. Though many people may not be entirely familiar with machine learning and what it has to offer, it is already making an impact on their daily lives. Shaping the future to create a safer, more efficient world to come. Although the idea of machine learning is not exactly new, it's experienced its biggest level of growth in the past decade due to increased interest. So, what exactly is machine learning and how can it help cyber defense?


NVIDIA AI Platform Takes Conversational User Experience To A New Level

#artificialintelligence

After breaking all the records related to training computer vision models, NVIDIA now claims that it's AI platform is able to train a natural language neural network model based on one of the largest datasets in a record time. It also claims that the inference time is just 2 milliseconds which translates to an extremely fast response from the model participating in a conversation with a user. After computer vision, natural language processing is one of the top applications of AI. From Siri to Alexa to Cortana to Google Assistant, all conversational user experiences are powered by AI. The advancements in AI research is putting the power of language understanding and conversational interface into the hands of developers.

What Value Is Wipro Creating With Its Edge AI Solutions Using Intel Xeon

#artificialintelligence

AI computing needs high levels of data processing and conventional AI systems function by transmitting data to a cloud server to be processed. Insights about the data and the decisions to be taken by the system are then transmitted back to connected devices. This approach works fine but for the rapidly increasing number of IoT devices, this is not ideal. There are issues both with the processing power, cloud connectivity and battery capacities in the mobile devices. While connected devices are not ideal to support large data crunching, sometimes they are designed for purposes that need insights in real-time, such as in self-driving cars or in anomaly detection systems.


The Artificial Intelligence White Elephant - UC Today

#artificialintelligence

Differentiating service offerings in a remarkably competitive market such as communications is incredibly difficult. One route, a relevant understanding and early adoption of emerging technologies that can provide that niche. Platform providers globally have been claiming that they have leveraged the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning but have, in some cases, delivered little. Certainly, there are some innovators out there that are utilising artificial intelligence tools to disrupt and enhance existing processes, but there are also a host of vendors that use the term as a form of, pardon the pun, artificial smokescreen to cover their own lack of imagination or ingenuity. Disguising intelligent routing or process automation with a guise of true AI may fool some but many customers will see through this as a shiny gimmick.


5 Misunderstandings about the IEEE 2755.1-2019 Guide for Intelligent Process Automation

Although at first appearing to be useful information for operations of any size, it quickly becomes clear that the standard was largely written by and thereby targetted towards large corporate business.


Role of Artificial Intelligence in Data Security

#artificialintelligence

Just the way the deficiency of vitamin and poor hygiene can make the human body fell seriously ill, the deficient access points and lack of hygiene in cyber environments can lead to cyberattacks in the hyper-connected workplaces. The likelihood of cyberattacks is increasing with continuous ballooning of the data feeding into the network. It's a sign, the organizations are living in the fear of becoming a victim of the cyberattacks and willing to spend big bundles on cybersecurity tools and services. According to IDC research, "The organizations will spend $101.6 billion on cybersecurity software, services, and hardware by 2020." The leading organizations are integrating the tens of security products in the environment, but yet, they afraid of being exposed and vulnerable.
