Join the conversation: why your business needs conversational AI

#artificialintelligence

The age of conversational AI is here and it's completely redefining how organisations, employees and consumers are communicating with one another. Thanks to its ability to use natural language processing (NLP) to map spoken or written words to intent, conversational AI is no longer just a gimmick. Instead, conversational AI is making an impact across nearly every sector -- in our homes, cars, call centres, banks, online shops, and hospitals--and the use cases are growing. Combining complex NLP, cognitive learning abilities, autonomic task management, and emotional intelligence, conversational AIs can both learn from and respond to text or voice in an engaging, personalised and emotionally cognisant manner. The potential is immense and so it's unsurprising that recent research found that the global conversational AI market is expected to increase from $4.2 billion in 2019 to $15.7 billion by 2024.

Five predictions for AI and process automation in 2020

#artificialintelligence

The development of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic process automation (RPA) rose rapidly during 2019. In the coming year, this pace will climb even further. Enticed by the potential for the technologies to streamline workflows and improve customer service, organisations will be undertaking deployments in ever-increasing numbers. At the same time, the capabilities of the technologies will continue to grow at a breakneck pace. Where initially they were limited to assisting with very structured activities, they will increasingly be put to work in areas that until now have required human intervention.


Amazon and Apple will be our doctors in the future, says tech guru Peter Diamandis

#artificialintelligence

In his upcoming book, The Future Is Faster Than You Think, which will hit bookshelves in late January 2020, Diamandis makes the case for why he believes big tech companies are going to be running healthcare by 2030. In December, he came to Fast Company's offices to make the case for why Big Tech is the doctor of the future. "We're going to see Apple and Amazon and Google and all the data-driven companies that are in our homes right now become our healthcare providers," he says, referring to smart speakers such as Google's Assistant, Amazon's Alexa, and Apple's HomePod. While many of these home voice assistants started with simple tasks like restocking home pantries and surfacing cooking tutorials, they're already starting to move into the business of managing family well-being. Amazon has put significant effort into making Alexa a health resource.


Chatbots spotlight machine learning's trillion-dollar potential – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

The global industry potential of artificial intelligence is well-documented, yet the vision of this AI future is uncertain. AI and automation trends are generating significant debate among economists and governments, particularly around employment impact and uncertain social outcomes. The mainstream attention is warranted. According to PwC, AI "could contribute up to $15.7 trillion to the global economy in 2030, more than the current output of China and India combined." AI is at a crossroads, and its long-term outlook is still hotly debated.

19 examples of artificial intelligence shaking up business as usual

#artificialintelligence

Examples of artificial intelligence (AI) in pop culture usually involve a pack of intelligent robots hell-bent on overthrowing the human race, or at least a fancy theme park. Sentient machines with general artificial intelligence don't yet exist, and they likely won't exist anytime soon, so we're safe... for now. That's not to make light of AI's potential impact on our future. In a recent survey, more than 72% of Americans expressed worry about a future in which machines perform many human jobs. Additionally, tech billionaire Elon Musk, long an advocate for the regulation of artificial intelligence, recently called AI more dangerous than nukes. Whether we realize it or not, artificial intelligence is all around us and playing an active role in our daily lives. Every time we open our Facebook newsfeed, do a Google search, get a product recommendation from Amazon or book a trip online, AI is lurking in the background.


Conversing with chatbots--Artificial Intelligence research keeps it more 'human' - SFU News - Simon Fraser University

DiPaola's and Yalcin's extensive research on empathy in AI is also addressing issues in a variety of industries, including e-health. In a collaborative project with the national AGE-WELL initiative, a helper AI conversational bot is being developed to assist the elderly in staying independent at home. Other applications are geared to the entertainment industry. After premiering at the NeuroIPS conference, the AI Empathic Painter system will travel to Europe to be showcased in Florence in May 2020. Formerly from Stanford University, DiPaola lead SFU's Interactive Visualization Lab (iVizLab), which strives to make computational systems bend more to the human experience by incorporating biological, cognitive and behavior knowledge models.

What Happens When A Robot Debates The Potential of Artificial Intelligence for Good?

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence has held the curiosity and attention of the general populace for decades. Whether it be in the form of books, films, or TedTalks, people have always had the occasion to question the ethics and morality surrounding AI. But artificial intelligence is more than fantastical crime-fighting medical companions or malevolent sentient computers capable of guiding rockets. In a live debate in Cambridge Union, IBM's Project Debator was given the floor to defend the benefits of artificial intelligence to a human audience. During the debate, the robot parsed through more than a thousand arguments about AI submitted through IBM's website the week before the showcase.
