One goal of AI work in natural language is to enable communication between people and computers without resorting to memorization of complex commands and procedures. Automatic translation – enabling scientists, business people and just plain folks to interact easily with people around the world – is another goal. Both are just part of the broad field of AI and natural language, along with the cognitive science aspect of using computers to study how humans understand language.
AI conferences are a great place for knowledge sharing about machine learning, big data, natural language processing, chatbot development, and more. In this article, we'll share our strategies for choosing the right AI conference to attend, and then making the most out of your experience at that conference. When deciding which AI conference to attend, you should think about your main goal for attending a conference. If you think about what you want to get out of attending an AI conference, that should help to narrow down your choices. If you're interested in debating and discussing machine learning trends with other data scientists, you might consider attending an intimate conference with round-table discussions.
The age of conversational AI is here and it's completely redefining how organisations, employees and consumers are communicating with one another. Thanks to its ability to use natural language processing (NLP) to map spoken or written words to intent, conversational AI is no longer just a gimmick. Instead, conversational AI is making an impact across nearly every sector -- in our homes, cars, call centres, banks, online shops, and hospitals--and the use cases are growing. Combining complex NLP, cognitive learning abilities, autonomic task management, and emotional intelligence, conversational AIs can both learn from and respond to text or voice in an engaging, personalised and emotionally cognisant manner. The potential is immense and so it's unsurprising that recent research found that the global conversational AI market is expected to increase from $4.2 billion in 2019 to $15.7 billion by 2024.
Rome wasn't built in a day. It has taken years for computers to exhibit the level of intelligence they do today and be able to produce text that sounds and read human-like. It's time to appreciate this revolutionary journey. In 2007, The first step was taken by Robbie Allen, who was a veteran engineer at Cisco. He created an online college basketball website that automatically published game reviews, real-time updates, recaps, and incidents of injury.
Artificial Intelligence as a breakthrough technology is continuing to transform our lives in myriad ways. From intelligent chatbots capable to answer questions and guide users to virtual assistants responding to our commands for fulfilling tasks to smart and intelligent cars adjusting to typical user preferences, there is a multitude of ways artificial intelligence has penetrated our lives. Naturally, ecommerce cannot be left without reaping the benefits of AI for customer-centric product search, customer support, personalized recommendations, and customer support. Magento as the most popular and widely used ecommerce CMS platform has integrated AI with a whole array of plugins and extensions. If you have a Magento ecommerce store you can easily give your customers sophisticated AI-based shopping experience.
According to media reports more than 3,200 students have applied for the school in the first week admissions were open. Many of the applicants came from the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Egypt, India, and China. In October Abu Dhabi announced the Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence, which will enable graduate students, businesses, and governments to advance AI. The university is named after the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who is an advocate for developing human capital through science. The school aims to create a new model of academia and research for AI and to "unleash AI's full potential."
Core to human-centered AI is explainability. If a machine cannot explain its reasoning in a way that humans understand and on human terms, the AI isn't working for people. Researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology, Cornell University and the University of Kentucky recently published the results of teaching a machine to generate conversational explanations of its model's internal state and action data representations in real-time. They tested whether people like the machine to tell them how it made decisions, and what characteristics of explanations drove people's perceptions of explainability. Relatability is key to understandability – when an AI uses natural language to explain itself, people put themselves in the AI's shoes and evaluate understandability based on whether the AI gives the same reasons they would.
AX Semantics an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered, natural language generation (NLG) company said it could create AI-produced content in more than 110 languages. The Stuttgart-based company which launched in the US today, 12 December 2019 already works with hundreds of customers, including several Fortune 500 companies such as Deloitte for BSS reporting, Porsche and Nestlé. The demand for digital content continues to rise. And technology like AI is considered to be instrumental in helping companies keep pace. The global NLG market size is expected to reach $1,150.9
Online commerce giant eBay has relaunched its dedicated mobile app for car sellers and buyers, more than four years after killing the app. The eBay Motors app has been in beta for a few months, and version 1.0 is now live for Android and iOS. The new incarnation sports a number of notable automated features to help people sell their vehicles, including an image-categorization tool that groups photos by type, which was built using Google's AutoML Vision Edge tool for Firebase. The app has also been rebuilt from the ground up using Flutter, Google's open source platform for developing cross-platform apps based on the same codebase. For background, eBay first launched a dedicated mobile app for cars back in 2011, but ended up pulling the app -- alongside three other standalone apps -- in 2015 as it consolidated its services under the main eBay platform.
As part of a broader push to upgrade its technology, Comerica has implemented voice artificial intelligence tools to automate much of its contact center's interactions with consumers. The regional bank has also launched voice-based authentication. Both initiatives are continually adjusted. User experiences dictate changes, sometimes as often as daily. While Comerica's overall voice efforts have already paid off in increased efficiencies, and voice authentication has been well received, the Dallas-based regional bank says it is still early days and hopes for continuing improvement in consumer service and efficiency.
