THE SEDUCTIVE BUSINESS LOGIC OF ALGORITHMS

#artificialintelligence

Certain machine behaviors never cease to amaze me. I'm astounded by their ability to learn from their accomplishments and from their interactions with we humans. Unfortunately, many business managers still think of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms as something that will be impossible for them to understand. But I believe that knowing the fundamental principles that underlie the new technologies behind autonomous vehicles, shopping recommendation engines, Alexa and the rest can boost managers' confidence in them and help them make their companies more innovative. The two key drivers of major smart technologies today are machine learning and deep learning.


Standing on the shoulders of giants

#artificialintelligence

When you think of AI or machine learning you may draw up images of AlphaZero or even some science fiction reference such as HAL-9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey. However, the true forefather, who set the stage for all of this, was the great Arthur Samuel. Samuel was a computer scientist, visionary, and pioneer, who wrote the first checkers program for the IBM 701 in the early 1950s. His program, "Samuel's Checkers Program", was first shown to the general public on TV on February 24th, 1956, and the impact was so powerful that IBM stock went up 15 points overnight (a huge jump at that time). This program also helped set the stage for all the modern chess programs we have come to know so well, with features like look-ahead, an evaluation function, and a mini-max search that he would later develop into alpha-beta pruning.


How a New AI Breakthrough Could Undermine the Financial Industry's Entire Foundation

While robots have taken many of the jobs of the manually skilled, Pluribus and its future generations are coming for the jobs at the other end of the spectrum--the brilliant, the cunning, the creative. Have we reached an artificial intelligence (AI) milestone overload? Are we so jaded about momentous breakthroughs in AI capabilities that we no longer acknowledge them with the appropriate awe AI demands? One would think so after the July performance of Carnegie Mellon and Facebook's Pluribus went virtually unnoticed. You should, because this valedictorian of machine learning is a serious threat to your livelihood.

MarketInsightsReports has published a report entitled Global Artificial Intelligence (AI) Verticals Market Research Report 2019 that is a detailed observation of several aspects, including the rate of growth, technological advances and various strategies implemented by the main current market players. The report is based on a collective analysis of data, which is obtained through primary and secondary research. It provides a systematic approach to the current and prospective scenario of this market. Artificial intelligence (AI) makes it possible for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new inputs and perform human-like tasks. Most AI examples that you hear about today – from chess-playing computers to self-driving cars – rely heavily on deep learning and natural language processing.

AI, Humans and Collaboration in the Workplace

#artificialintelligence

The AI revolution has arrived. And although the technology is still in its infancy, it promises to radically transform the global economy--impacting human lives, culture, and politics in ways that we can scarcely imagine. A recent article by Forbes Technology Council member Christian Pedersen argued that artificial intelligence will create new opportunities for data scientists, researchers, analysts, and other highly educated technical specialists even as the more easily-automated job functions of low skill workers "fall to the wayside." Pedersen's argument is correct on both counts, but the AI economy is also dependent upon one more ingredient: subject-matter expertise. Participation in the burgeoning AI economy doesn't require an advanced degree in data science or fluency in the latest programming languages.


A history of AI; key moments in the story of Artifical Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Talos,: was it a Greek myth equivalent of robotics or AI? The history of AI begins with a myth and just as with many modern AI systems, it concerned defence. According to Greek mythology, Talos was a giant automaton made of bronze, created by the god Hephaestus, for the purpose of guarding the island of Crete by throwing stones at passing ships. Just as many experts in AI today accuse companies of claiming to have AI when in fact they don't, the second well known example of AI was a lie. The Turk was supposed to be a mechanical device for playing chess, created by Wolfgang von Kempelen, trying to impress Empress Maria Theresa of Austria in 1769.


Past, present, and future of Artificial Intelligence: A case study of AI evolution

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is a trending technology from quite a few years now. You must have heard a lot about it in tech news and blogs. There are various predictions about the future of Artificial intelligence but have you ever been keen to about its initial stages? In contemporary times, AI along with its subsets machine learning and deep learning are ruling the innovations in the software industry market. In fact, the magic of AI is such that 41 percent of consumers are expecting that their life will change with AI in the future.
