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) …
The next phase of EV competition won't be about battery range, styling, or zero-to-60 acceleration. It's going to be about which cars are smarter. Figuring out winners and losers will have big implications for investor portfolios. Xpeng opened its event by showcasing smartcabin software technology. Drivers can adjust things such as the direction of air-conditioning vents by talking to the virtual assistant.
It is the time of the fall classic, Major League Baseball's World Series. As the two best teams vie for the championship this year, there are some actors in the game beyond the players, coaches, umpires (or referees), and fans… namely big data, analytics, and artificial intelligence. These new actors are also highly prevalent in football, basketball, and hockey, and they are changing these games forever. Sports foray into technology and data really got its start in 2002 with the Oakland Athletics. General Manager Billy Beane and Assistant GM Paul DePodesta would pioneer sabermetrics, which is a new perspective on baseball analytics.
In the field of Deep Learning, datasets are an essential part of every project. To train a neural network that can handle new situations, one has to use a dataset that represents the upcoming scenarios of the world. An image classification model trained on animal images will not perform well on a car classification task. Alongside training the best models, researchers use public datasets as a benchmark of their model performance. I personally think that easy-to-use public benchmarks are one of the most useful tools to help facilitate the research process.
Big data refers to incredibly broad collections of structured and unstructured data that can not be managed using conventional methods. Big data research can make sense of data by uncovering trends and patterns. Machine learning can accelerate this process by decision-making algorithms. It can categorize incoming data, identify trends, and convert data into insights that are useful for business operations. Machine learning algorithms are useful for gathering, analyzing, and incorporating data for large organizations.
Machine learning can ascertain a lot about you -- including some of your most sensitive information. For instance, it can predict your sexual orientation, whether you're pregnant, whether you'll quit your job, and whether you're likely to die soon. Researchers can predict race based on Facebook likes, and officials in China use facial recognition to identify and track the Uighurs, a minority ethnic group. Now, do the machines actually "know" these things about you, or are they only making informed guesses? And, if they're making an inference about you, just the same as any human you know might do, is there really anything wrong with them being so astute?
The nasal test for Covid-19 requires a nurse to insert a 6-inch long swab deep into your nasal passages. Now, imagine that your nurse is a robot. A few months ago, a nasal swab robot was developed by Brain Navi, a Taiwanese startup. The company's intent was to minimize the spread of infection by reducing staff-patient contact. So, here we have a robot autonomously navigating the probe down into your throat, and carefully avoiding channels that lead up to the eyes.
It is no brainer that the e-commerce market has transformed the Indian market like never before. Thanks to factors like rising smartphone penetration, the launch of 4G network, and increasing consumer wealth, analytics-driven customer engagement, and digital payment, the e-commerce sector is on an upward trajectory. It is projected that this industry will surpass the US to become the second-largest E-commerce market in the world by 2034. According to the PWC survey, with Internet penetration expected to almost double to 60% by 2022, the nation is arguably the world's most promising Internet economy, with a rapidly increasing'netizen' population. Further owing to improving data affordability, consumption growth, and newer financial products, the e-commerce market is set to grow, be it across e-tail, travel, consumer services or online financial services.
An innovative artificial intelligence (AI) tool developed by NASA has helped identify a cluster of craters on Mars that formed within the last decade.The new machine-learning algorithm, an automated fresh impact crater classifier, was created by researchers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California -- and represents the first time artificial intelligence has been used to identify previously unknown craters on the Red Planet, according to a statement from NASA. Scientists have fed the algorithm more than 112,000 images taken by the Context Camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). The program is designed to scan the photos for changes to Martian surface features that are indicative of new craters. In the case of the algorithm's first batch of finds, scientists think these craters formed from a meteor impact between March 2010 and May 2012.
