Could artificial intelligence lead to world peace? Science & Technology

#artificialintelligence

Helsinki, Finland - An audience of international peace brokers have gathered inside a room in the historic House of Estates. They have come from South Sudan, the Central African Republic, Ukraine, Colombia and elsewhere to hear a scientist speak. That scientist is Timo Honkela, and his keynote speech on the second day of April's National Dialogues conference is titled Peace from a Different Perspective - a Dialogue of a Million People. But 54-year-old Honkela is working on a machine that he hopes will facilitate world peace. "World peace would be a good goal to work for in my remaining days," he says, smiling over a cup of coffee during a break in the conference.

Top Trends on the Gartner Hype Cycle for Artificial Intelligence, 2019

#artificialintelligence

Between 2018 and 2019, organizations that have deployed artificial intelligence (AI) grew from 4% to 14%, according to Gartner's 2019 CIO Agenda survey. AI is reaching organizations in many different ways compared with a few years ago, when there was no alternative to building your own solutions with machine learning (ML). AutoML and intelligent applications have the greatest momentum, while other approaches are also popular -- namely, AI platform as a service or AI cloud services. Conversational AI remains at the top of corporate agendas spurred by the worldwide success of Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and others. Meanwhile, new technologies continue to emerge such as augmented intelligence, edge AI, data labeling and explainable AI.

How hot has Summer 2018 been around the globe? The speed of evolution in this industry segment is almost without precedent. Firms that had revenues worth tens of millions of U.S. dollars just a couple of years ago are talking about reaching a billion in revenue in just a couple of more years. But the reality is that it's the perfect storm – or heat wave – of innovation and capital intersecting at just the right time. Of course, it doesn't hurt that enterprises have already captured most of the potential value from offshore labor arbitrage.

In 2015, Forrester caused a storm to brew when it announced that artificial intelligence (AI) would replace one million B2B sales jobs by 2020. This bold headline, however, failed to capture the entire picture. Sure, if sales reps continue to rely on age-old practices like cold calling and distributing spray-and-pray marketing collateral, their days are surely numbered. Yet, on the other hand, artificial intelligence has failed to live up to business expectations. Case in point: according to a recent white paper by Pactera Technologies and Nimdzi Insights, 85% of artificial intelligence projects fail to deliver on their intended promises to business.


Unlock machine learning with these Amazon SageMaker examples

#artificialintelligence

Your first SageMaker application doesn't have to reinvent machine learning. A chatbot can be a good place to start. Organizations should use SageMaker to widen the capabilities of existing services that are already tied to AWS, said Svetlana Sicular, research vice president at Gartner. A chatbot to streamline customers' experiences or their internal operation is a good entry point as an Amazon SageMaker example. For internal use, a chatbot could aid in compliance checks, Sicular said.


Apple HomePod 2: rumors, news, and everything we know so far

#artificialintelligence

Could Apple be about to release the HomePod 2, a smaller version of its Siri smart speaker? That's a question we've been asking ourselves for a while now now – and while Apple's iPhone X launch event on September 12, 2018 didn't reveal what the next HomePod will look like, the HomePod 2 could finally be on the horizon. Nearly a year has passed since then, and the iPhone 11 launch saw no mention of the new Apple HomePod Mini – so, everything is pointing to a 2020 release date. The speculation is that the next version of the HomePod, the Apple HomePod 2, may be a more compact version of the original, with the name Apple HomePod Mini being rumored. According to a Bloomberg report in July 2018, Apple may have been looking to release the HomePod 2 sometime in early 2019, which would make sense based on the release date of the original HomePod – of course, it never actually materialized.

Last month data scientists, analysts, executives, engineers, developers, and AI researchers from a wide range of industries flew in the city of seven hills, San Francisco, California. Each one of over 1000 attendees was super pumped to share and learn emerging trends that are transforming data and businesses. I was one of them and I would like to share some key takeaways with the data science community around the globe. In my opinion, at Strata Data Conferences one could see a perfect intersection of cutting-edge science and evolving business models. The conference featured more than 300 speakers, 10 keynotes, 10 tutorials, and 150 technical sessions.
