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) …

BENGALURU: Given today's fast-changing world, as high as 62% of Indian professionals said in a survey by LinkedIn that they felt daunted by the rapid pace of change in skills that are in demand. A high proportion (45%) of those surveyed left organisations because of lack of learning and development opportunities, according to LinkedIn, which surveyed about 5,000 employees and professionals in Australia, India, Japan, and Singapore. And this mismatch between market requirements, labour skills and opportunities is expected to grow more acute in future. By 2020, it is estimated that Asia-Pacific (Apac) will face a labour shortage of 12.3 million workers at an annual opportunity cost of $4.2 trillion. By 2020, it is also expected that 42% of the core skills required for a job will change, LinkedIn said.
Machine learning is a complex discipline. But implementing machine learning models is far less daunting and difficult than it used to be, thanks to machine learning frameworks--such as Google's TensorFlow--that ease the process of acquiring data, training models, serving predictions, and refining future results. Created by the Google Brain team, TensorFlow is an open source library for numerical computation and large-scale machine learning. TensorFlow bundles together a slew of machine learning and deep learning (aka neural networking) models and algorithms and makes them useful by way of a common metaphor. It uses Python to provide a convenient front-end API for building applications with the framework, while executing those applications in high-performance C .
American tech stars such as Oracle founder Larry Ellison, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos or the investor legend Peter Thiel do not believe in such humility, but instead, let billions of dollars go to decipher the mystery of why people age and die. If the three business leaders blindly believed the computer, there would be a more pleasant way for them to at least postpone death: drink more champagne. Because the analysis of many data and influencing factors provides the clear connection that with increasing champagne consumption the life expectancy rises. Although it is not well known how much Dom Pérignon the billionaires drink per week. What is certain, however, is that each of them ignores this connection.
This is the final stage of AI development which currently exists only hypothetically. Self-aware AI, which, self explanatorily, is an AI that has evolved to be so akin to the human brain that it has developed self-awareness. Creating this type of Ai, which is decades, if not centuries away from materializing, is and will always be the ultimate objective of all AI research. This type of AI will not only be able to understand and evoke emotions in those it interacts with, but also have emotions, needs, beliefs, and potentially desires of its own. And this is the type of AI that doomsayers of the technology are wary of.
In this era of Artificial Intelligence, where bots can mimic human minds and outperform humans; a new age process automation tool called RPA, "Robotic Process Automation" has been creating a lot of buzz. It is highly versatile and can be used by every industry to streamline and optimize their business processes. From data entry to claims processing to automatic payments, RPA can do it all. According to a report by Forrester, the RPA Market will grow from $250 million in 2016 to $2.9 billion in 2021. There is a huge potential for RPA and several businesses have started realizing the benefits that RPA could offer and the potential to improve their processes and reduce costs through implementing RPA.
In the age of a big data and breathtaking advances of artificial intelligence, social infrastructure promotes digital engagement and active presence. Digital democracy propagates the participation of a growing number of users to interact with institutions and services, ensuring that decisions made by AI-powered digital tools reflect human values. Immersed in automation, many choices we make include some form of a computationally-modeled process. This transformation from manual to programmed behavior has started with the introduction of recommendation systems to find similar products according to users' preferences. However, today's AI systems go beyond imposing suggestions and know pretty well what we do and what we want.
Fox News Flash top headlines for June 7 are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com Videos of Boston Dynamics' robots have been the stuff of both awe and inspiration, as well as nightmares. Now, it appears the robots will be doing more than just performing parkour or dancing around on YouTube. According to The Verge, who interviewed Boston Dynamics' CEO Marc Raibert at Amazon's Re:MARS conference in Las Vegas, Spot, the company's dog-like robot and arguably its cutest machine, will be available for purchase "within months" and certainly before the end of 2019.
We're in the midst of a wave of excitement around AI such as hasn't been seen for a few decades. But those previous periods of inflated expectations led to troughs of disappointment. This time is (mostly) different. Applications of AI such as predictive analytics are already decreasing costs and improving reliability of industrial machinery. Pattern recognition can equal or exceed the ability of human experts in some domains.
