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) …
Lia's creator Soul Machines is developing digital humans, complete with digital brains, who are portrayed by actual humans. Verizon's Labs showcases innovators like Soul Machines to explore how 5G networks support cutting edge technology that contributes to the betterment of society. Having the speed and bandwidth of a 5G connection is critical to ensuring that digital interactions feel humanized. In human-to-human engagement, the brain rapidly identifies and processes data points such as tone and non-verbal cues. In digital-to-human engagement, mimicking human-like interactions requires 5G's bandwidth and speed.
Data scientists are expected to know a lot -- machine learning, computer science, statistics, mathematics, data visualization, communication, and deep learning. Within those areas there are dozens of languages, frameworks, and technologies data scientists could learn. How should data scientists who want to be in demand by employers spend their learning budget? I scoured job listing websites to find which skills are most in demand for data scientists. I looked at general data science skills and at specific languages and tools separately.
More than half of the world's active volcanoes are not monitored instrumentally. Hence, even very serious eruptions occur with no warning for nearby populations of the upcoming disaster. As a first and early step toward a volcano early warning system, a research project headed by Sébastien Valade from the Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin) and the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam led to a new volcano monitoring platform that analyses satellite images using artificial intelligence (AI). Through tests with data from recent events, Valade and his colleagues demonstrated that their platform, Monitoring Unrest from Space (MOUNTS) can integrate multiple sets of diverse types of data for a comprehensive monitoring of volcanoes. The team's results were published in the journal Remote Sensing.
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have created a new type of tiny 3D-printed robot that moves by harnessing the vibration from piezoelectric actuators, ultrasound sources or even tiny speakers. The size of the world's smallest ant, these "micro-bristle-bots" could sense changes in the environment and swarm together to move materials--or perhaps one day repair injuries inside the human body. Prototypes of the robot respond to different vibration frequencies depending on their configurations, which allows researchers to control individual bots by adjusting the vibration. Though they are only 2 millimeters long, the bots can cover four times their own length in a second. The micro-bristle-bots consist of a piezoelectric actuator glued onto a polymer body that is 3D printed using two-photon polymerization lithography (TPP).
According to BlueWeave Consulting, The Global Artificial Intelligence (AI) Robots Market is expected to grow with a significant rate during the forecast period 2019-2025, owing to Increased efficiency and effectiveness demands of robots coupled with proliferated increasing usage of robotics in various industries. The increasing developments in the field of artificial intelligence, there has been an increasing shift towards providing autonomy to the machine will foster the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) Robots Market in the forecast period. Furthermore, organizations are seeking cheaper and more efficient labor given mounting labor costs, particularly in highly-specialized fields where employers have to bid up for top talent will accelerate the growth of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Robots market. On the basis of Robot Type, the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Robots market has been segmented into Service and Industrial. Service dominates the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) Robots on account of increasing application use outside of a manufacturing facility within a professional setting like intended to interact with people, typically deployed in retail, hospitality, healthcare, warehouse or fulfillment set.
We hear a lot about how connected devices can support smarter cities. What are you working on? "I look at how to co-ordinate connected devices using artificial intelligence, in order to make complex systems work more efficiently. In particular, I use machine learning on linked systems such as traffic lights to help keep transport and pedestrians moving in cities, and on household appliances to use electricity more sustainably." How do you apply artificial intelligence to traffic lights?
Organizations that are working with artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning (ML) have, on average, four AI/ML projects in place, according to a recent survey by Gartner, Inc. Of all respondents, 59% said that they have AI deployed today. The Gartner "AI and ML Development Strategies" study was conducted via an online survey in December 2018 with 106 Gartner Research Circle Members – a Gartner-managed panel composed of IT and IT/business professionals. Participants were required to be knowledgeable about the business and technology aspects of ML or AI either currently deployed or in planning at their organizations. "We see a substantial acceleration in AI adoption this year," said Jim Hare, research vice president at Gartner.
Development of the artificial intelligence industry still has a long way to go before it can become "real intelligence" and be applied in various sectors, industry experts and market insiders said. "At the present time, AI is still at the stage of machine learning. It is now driven by data," said Zhang Zhengyou, director of AI Lab & Robotics X at internet conglomerate Tencent. "A key issue that needs to be addressed for AI development is how to utilize the technology so that machines can know and understand people better," he explained. He made the remarks at the 2019 Global Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Summit held in Shenzhen from Friday to Sunday.
Elon Musk said startup Neuralink, which aims to build a scalable implant to connect human brains with computers, has already implanted chips in rats and plans to test its brain-machine interface in humans within two years, with a long-term goal of people "merging with AI." Brain-machine interfaces have been around for awhile. Some of the earliest success with the technology include Brown University's BrainGate, which first enabled a paralyzed person to control a computer cursor in 2006. Since then a variety of research groups and companies, including the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and DARPA-backed Synchron, have been working on similar devices. There are two basic approaches: You can do it invasively, creating an interface with an implant that directly touches the brain, or you can do it non-invasively, usually by electrodes placed near the skin. Neuralink, says Musk, is going to go the invasive route.
