#artificialintelligence

RADIUS guest contributor Gary Grossman currently leads the Edelman AI Center of Excellence. As part of that, he led development of the 2019 Edelman Artificial Intelligence Survey that can be viewed here. Just how important is artificial intelligence (AI)? Microsoft's Chief Envisioning Officer, Dave Coplin, said recently that AI is "the most important technology that anybody on the planet is working on today." A PwC report estimates that global GDP will be 14 percent higher in 2030 as a result of AI--the equivalent of $15.7 trillion, which is more than the current output of China and India combined.


What Is the Connection Between Pedophilia and A.I. (Artificial Intelligence)?

#artificialintelligence

Ed. note: Does pedophilia allow those involved with building A.I. technology to experiment with the very extremes in human emotions through pedophilia? While we are mesmerized by all this rapidly accelerating technology, what else is going on that might be of concern? Contributor I cover what entrepreneurs are looking to learn. Virtual gaming is about to warp through a black hole, thanks to a band of scientists in Hong Kong and a hedge funder with a zealous science background, called Jeffrey Epstein. Indeed, game programming is moving away from algorithmic robots to a twilight realm of emotional thinkers, taking online, video and toy entrepreneurs, one step closer to Star Trek's'Holodeck'. For years, in virtual gaming, the only intelligent player was the person playing the game, responding to non-reactive obstacles. At most, opponents could blow up or morph into something else.


How Singapore is using AI

#artificialintelligence

Self-driving vehicles, dating apps which give out relationship advice, humanoid robots that crack jokes and get upset... With a global market that is expected to reach US$35,870 million by 2025 from its direct revenue sources, artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer just the subject of science fiction books. According to a study carried out by IDC, in the ASEAN region, AI adoption rates are currently on the rise and growth has almost doubled in comparison to last year. When it comes to adopting this emerging technology, Indonesia is leading the way, with 24.6% of companies already embracing AI in some capacity. Thailand comes in second and the bronze medal goes to Singapore.


APAC's use of AI creates interesting opportunities -- Frost & Sullivan - Tech Wire Asia

#artificialintelligence

ARTIFICIAL intelligence is being used in interesting ways across the Asia Pacific (APAC). Businesses in the region have been exploring how AI can help improve productivity, efficiency, and create new digital transformation and customer experience opportunities. Of course, the demand and adoption of AI applications in the APAC are driven by megatrends such as data availability, the furthering of the Industry 4.0 agenda, an population aging, and government support. According to a new Frost & Sullivan report, the efforts of leaders working on AI projects is paying off -- especially because of all the related technologies and concepts AI can bring to life. "With the convergence of Internet of Things (IoT) and communication technologies such as 5G, the future of AI application is all-pervasive," commented Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Cognitive Industry (AI and IoT), Information, and Communication Technologies Research and Practice Amy Lin.


10 Machine Learning Startups Transforming Their Industries - Disruption Hub

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is one of the technologies with the most transformative potential in business. According to research by McKinsey, 70 per cent of companies are likely to have adopted at least one form of AI by 2030. This will contribute to an additional $13tr of global economic activity. Machine learning – a subset of artificial intelligence – enables machines to get better at executing tasks without human intervention, by finding patterns in data, and learning from their experience. It's no surprise, therefore, that there has been an explosion in the number of machine learning companies worldwide.

Why Learn Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence?

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning, artificial intelligence (ML & AI) and big data form up a new niche area that is seeing a fast-paced growth rate in India. To clarify terminologies for a layperson, AI is basically all about mimicking human intelligence in machines, ML is a sub-set of AI and is about techniques that enable these machines to continuously learn on their own through data and perform a desired set of processes. Big Data analytics is about extracting huge data and observing unanticipated patterns from the same, while ML uses the same to provide incremental data/information to help the machine learn on its own. Data science and big data industry in India is growing at 33per cent CAGR (Compounded annual growth rate) and stood at $2.71 Billion in 2018. While the Finance & Banking industry leads the share in the analytics market, travel-hospitality and healthcare saw the fastest growth in recent years, in terms of analytics-use.
