Vizio vs. TCL: TVs for every budget


Vizio and TCL sell budget-friendly TVs that don't compromise on quality -- perfect for gaming, virtual workouts, and binge-watching Cobra Kai. Reviewers love them because they're not as expensive as TVs from other top brands, but have many of the same features. But what brand should you choose? Both TCL and Vizio offer models with 4K resolution and advanced gaming features to use with the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. To help you decide, take a look at our TV breakdown. Sure, they don't have 4K or 8K displays.

Machine Learning & Data Science Projects Bootcamp 2021


Learn to solve business problems using data science, machine learning practically & build real world project with python What you'll learn Description "Algorithms that parse data, learn from that data, and then apply what they've learned to make informed decisions" An easy example of a machine learning algorithm is an on-demand music streaming service. For the service to make a decision about which new songs or artists to recommend to a listener, machine learning algorithms associate the listener's preferences with other listeners who have a similar musical taste. This technique, which is often simply touted as AI, is used in many services that offer automated recommendations. Machine learning fuels all sorts of automated tasks that span across multiple industries, from data security firms that hunt down malware to finance professionals who want alerts for favorable trades. The AI algorithms are programmed to constantly be learning in a way that simulates as a virtual personal assistant--something that they do quite well.

Why would you ever trust Amazon's Alexa after this?


It was only the other day that I was wondering whether it would be fun to have a cuckoo clock in my kitchen. An Amazon Alexa-powered cuckoo clock, that is. I concluded that the idea was arrant bonkers, as are most things Alexa-enabled. But we all have our prejudices and many Americans are only too delighted to have Amazon's Echos and Dots strewn about their homes to make their lives easier. Why, Alexa can even buy you your mummy, should you want.

Five Tips For Life Sciences Companies To Protect Their AI Technologies


Artificial intelligence (AI) has revolutionized many technology areas. As a few examples, it has already been instrumental in improving and enabling voice recognition algorithms, digital assistants, advertisement recommendation engines and financial trading applications.[1] Significant investment is being made for further development of this promising new technology, with R&D spending on AI predicted to reach $57.6 billion by the end of 2021.[2] Along with these R&D efforts, companies are also trying to protect and monetize their AI inventions, in some cases opting to seek patent protection. From 2002 to 2018, the number of AI patent applications filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) more than doubled, from 30,000 to 60,000.[3] These R&D efforts are no longer limited to software companies.

What is Artificial Intelligence with examples(11 Examples)


Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of a computer or a robot controlled by a computer to do tasks that are usually done by humans because they require human intelligence and discernment. Although there are no AIs that can perform the wide variety of tasks an ordinary human can do, some AIs can match humans in specific tasks. Are artificial intelligence and machine learning the same? No, artificial intelligence and machine learning are not the same, but they are closely related. Machine learning is the method to train a computer to learn from its inputs but without explicit programming for every circumstance.

Amazon's new rotating, follow-you camera is useful -- and invasive

Washington Post - Technology News

Echo devices are mostly known as Alexa smart speakers, but in 2017, Amazon started adding screens with cameras in them to a line called the Echo Show. Now these kinds of countertop computers -- also known as smart displays -- have become their own aisle at the electronics store. Options include Google's Nest Hub Max, which uses facial recognition to identify which family member is in front of it, and Facebook's Portal, which offers its own more limited ability to track faces during calls.

Talk to the bot: How conversational AI is changing the world


As we lean on technology to simplify our lives, so our use of AI, often in ways that are almost invisible, continues to increase. If you think about many of our day-to-day activities, from checking your favourite weather app, to what ads you see online; from speaking to your choice of digital assistant to getting information from your bank via WhatsApp, all of these are powered by AI. The ubiquity of AI underplays the complexity of the engineering that goes into these systems, explains Sebastian Reeve, Director of International Go-To-Market, Intelligent Engagement at Nuance Communications. "The AI that powers modern technology isn't something that simply emerged one day, it's the culmination of decades of work that began with the creation of speech recognition and natural language technologies. These technologies, many of them developed by Nuance, power the interactive voice response systems that you use each time you call into a contact centre and provide the foundation of today's smart digital assistants."

Recommender systems are everywhere, helping you find everything from movies to jobs, restaurants to hospitals, even romance. Using behavioral and demographic data, these systems make predictions about what users will be most interested in at a particular time, resulting in high-quality, ordered, personalized suggestions. Recommender systems are practically a necessity for keeping your site content current, useful, and interesting to your visitors.

Artificial Intelligence for Apps and Websites


For most, the term Artificial Intelligence evokes thoughts of futuristic technologies, of C-3PO and Asimov's "I, Robot." We think of walking, sentient robots that look like us – or at least we imagine they appear to like us. What we don't generally think of is a glorified speakerbox, or a supercomputer tasked to create recipes. But that's where AI starts – with small steps and incremental advances in technology. These small steps gradually lead to giant leaps forward; think of a narrow canyon off in the distance: you're pretty sure you can jump the canyon, but first you need to get there.
