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) …
Berlin-based LoRaWAN manufacturer MatchX released the EdgeX AI Development Kit, set to improve both LoRaWAN and NB-IoT capabilities around the globe. EdgeX has been specifically designed to be programmed with an embedded artificial intelligence capable of analyzing everything from human emotions to city traffic patterns and street maintenance requirements. Unlike other devices, EdgeX completes its analysis on the device, transmitting the analysis results over a LoRaWAN or NB-IoT connection to ensure the utmost privacy of passersby. LoRaWAN and NB-IoT are low-power wireless solutions with limited bandwidth. Because of this, sensors using these networks can function for up to ten years on a single battery.
Warangal Urban: A two week Faculty Development Program (FDP) commenced at Kakatiya Institute of Technology & Science, Warangal (KITSW) on Monday. It is being organised by the department Computer Science & Engineering(CSE), KITSW, and sponsored by Department of Science & Technology (DST), New Delhi. It will be held from November 11 to 22. Addressing the faculty Prof. T. Sreenivasulu said that the main objective of this FDP is to contribute to the cross fertilization between the research on machine learning methods and their applications to speech processing. The participants should learn the basic algorithms that helps to build and apply prediction functions with an emphasis on practical applications. He also appreciated KITSW for conduction of FDP/Workshops regularly in equivalent to IITs and NITs for benefit of faculty and students.
Whether you see red, feel blue, or go green with envy may depend on what country you call home, a new study suggests. And when given data on how a person associated colors with emotions, researchers could correctly predict where they were from 80% of the time. The scientists surveyed 711 people from China, Germany, Greece, and the United Kingdom. Volunteers read the word for 12 colors, such as "green" and "turquoise." They then indicated which of 20 emotions the colors brought to mind, and how strongly the color was tied to the feeling.
UAVenture and Daedalean have published a teaser video announcing a new guidance system for professional UAVs. The system is called Magpie and provides unrivaled AI-powered functions – vision based identification of emergency landing sites during flight, as well as visual navigation that helps sustain GPS outages – in a less than 500g package, and completely integrated with the AirRails flight controller: no additional complex setup & coding required. No pre-marking of landing spots is required, Magpie is able to operate without pre-surveying of the area and recognise dynamic obstacles on the ground. The product will be available soon for the users of AirRails, UAVenture's flight control system for professional drones.
More than a decade ago leading UK investigative journalist Nick Davies published Flat Earth News, an exposé of how the mass media had abdicated its responsibility to the truth. Newsroom pressure to publish more stories, faster than their competitors had, Davies argued, led to journalists becoming mere "churnalists", rushing out articles so fast that they could never check on the truth of what they were reporting. Shocking as Davies' revelations seemed back in 2008, they seem pretty tame by today's standards. We now live in a post-truth world of Fake News and'alternative facts'; where activists don't just seek to manipulate the news agenda with PR but now use advanced technology to fake images and footage. A particularly troubling aspect of these'deepfake' videos is their use of artificial intelligence to fabricate people saying or doing things with almost undetectable accuracy.

But, as we close in on 2020, serious forecasts for the year 2030 are starting to emerge, with two dropping only this week. The first, from the National Restaurant Association in America, is a report on the projected state of the US restaurant industry. The second, from global market research firm Mintel, is a look at predicted consumer trends across the globe. In our recent Food Trends 2020 whitepaper, we highlighted three key macro trends ripe for evolution, with plant-based developments, cuisines from the Asia-Pacific region and healthy eating/nutritional focus all expected to progress in the UK next year. In 2030, aside from the expected advances in AI, VR and other abbreviated futurisms, some of the most interesting predictions stem from the likes of wellbeing and veganism, with farming, delivery and the very definition of a'restaurant' all cropping up.
Artificial intelligence is touching almost every industry in the ongoing era of digital transformation. But what does it mean? Put simply, AI and machine learning -- a closely related idea -- are computer programs that emulate and learn human behavior to then make autonomous decisions. AI can be especially transformative in retail, helping almost every aspect of a retailer's business -- from utilizing data to drive sales, to automating the supply chain, or to hyper-personalize the customer experience. While AI can sound like some far-off idea, it's closer than you may think.
The world of work is changing as technology advances, and the skills needed for future jobs are evolving. As many as 375 million workers--or roughly 14 percent of the global workforce--may need to switch jobs as digitization, automation, and advances in artificial intelligence disrupt the world of work by 2030, according to a recent McKinsey Global Institute report. Some jobs of the future are changing faster than others. New jobs will be created that haven't even been imagined yet. A Korn Ferry study of 55,000 professionals worldwide found that the skills which come naturally to most women, such as creativity and problem-solving, may give them a critical advantage over their male counterparts.
