What is Artificial Intelligence and Who Controls It? THIRTEEN - New York Public Media

#artificialintelligence

On the dash to the subway one morning, I grabbed an AMNY and proceeded to toss away the advertising insert, as usual. But the headline stopped me from dropping it in the trash: "What's Next? I work at THIRTEEN and the day before, I had attended a meeting about digital transformation, innovation and new technology. We're in the business of broadcast and video, but our discussion touched on all of the new ways content is being delivered, including voice assistants that pair with smart speakers for the home, like Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri. So instead of reading the AMNY news of the day, I combed what the future might bring, according to the sponsored content insert (from NewsDay, for P.C. Projections of what artificial intelligence will do in our homes were impressive but also made me just a little uncomfortable.


IBM Advances 'Watson Anywhere' with New Clients and Innovations Designed to Make it Even Easier to Scale AI Across Any Cloud - Oct 21, 2019

#artificialintelligence

Recognizing that organizations are slow to adopt AI, due in part to rising data complexities, IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced new innovations that further advance its Watson Anywhere approach to scaling AI across any cloud, and a host of clients who are leveraging the strategy to bring AI to their data, wherever it resides. "We collaborate with clients every day and around the world on their data and AI challenges, and this year we tackled one of the big drawbacks to scaling AI throughout the enterprise – vendor lock-in," said Rob Thomas, General Manager, IBM Data and AI. "When we introduced the ability to run Watson on any cloud, we opened up AI for clients in ways never imagined. Today, we pushed that even further adding even more capabilities to our Watson products running on Cloud Pak for Data." Increasing data complexity, as well as data preparation, skills shortages, and a lack of data culture are combining to slow AI adoption at a time when interest in AI continues to climb.


Tokyo Motor Show gets kid-friendly, future-oriented reboot in bid to reverse flagging attendance

The Japan Times

The 46th Tokyo Motor Show slated to kick off Thursday will not just focus on futuristic, cutting-edge vehicles, such as self-driving cars, it will also shine a light on unconventional mobility devices and exhibitions for children aimed at reversing flagging attendance. The show once enjoyed a reputation as one of the world's five biggest auto expos along with the Frankfurt, Geneva, Detroit and Paris shows. But it has recently lost its position as Asia's top venue to the Chinese expos in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou. The 46th biennial exhibition, to be held at Tokyo Big Sight convention center and its vicinity through Nov. 4, will be attended by 192 carmakers and organizations from eight countries, down from a peak of 361 in 1995, according to the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, the nation's largest auto lobby and the show's organizer. Along with U.S. giants General Motors Co., Ford Motor Co. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV -- which are again skipping Tokyo's show this year, BMW, Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, Citroen, Volvo and Peugeot will also be absent this year despite participating in 2017.


How AI Fleet Management Will Shape the Future of Transportation

#artificialintelligence

There are many opinions about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is going to change the world with expectations about its capabilities for now and in the future. AI simply refers to intelligence displayed by machines in contrast to that displayed by humans. Although humans are intelligent, they cannot be programmed to exceed their current capabilities in the same way a machine can. This has led to the creation of smart machines that handle tasks otherwise difficult for humans to handle efficiently. Artificial intelligence is gradually becoming a constant presence in many technological applications.


Why Artificial Intelligence is Important to You

#artificialintelligence

You've likely discovered that artificial intelligence can be used to perform plenty of remarkable tasks and tasks. AI can help musicians and designers create fast alterations to the artwork. AI may also help investigators identify "bogus" pictures or link sense and touch. AI is used to program sites and programs by blending symbolic reasoning and profound learning. Fundamentally, artificial intelligence extends beyond profound learning.

Artificial Intelligence Produces Artificial Justice

#artificialintelligence

Thanks to today's "Internet of Things" (IoT), there is an "automation" for almost every aspect of our lives. From such mundane if not downright silly things as kitchen faucets that activate on voice command, to the impressive -- massive shipping warehouses run by robotics -- many aspects of life today go beyond that imagined decades ago in science fiction. While we still are waiting for flying cars depicted in the Jetsons television show of the 1960s, or space hotels as portrayed in the sci-fi epic 2001, the array of technologically driven devices available to the average citizen is indeed impressive. Yet, while automation and artificial intelligence simplifies or altogether eliminates many of the activities of day-to-day life, the technology complicates others. For example, how do you program a self-driving car in an emergency situation to choose between the life of a pedestrian or that of its "driver?"


Our Future Lies in Making AI Robust and Verifiable - War on the Rocks

#artificialintelligence

This article was submitted in response to the call for ideas issued by the co-chairs of the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence, Eric Schmidt and Robert Work. It addresses the first question (part b.), which asks what might happen if the United States fails to develop robust AI capabilities that address national security issues. It also responds to question five (part d.), which asks what measures should the government take to ensure AI systems for national security are trusted. We are hurtling towards a future in which AI is omnipresent -- Siris will turn our iPhones into personal assistants and Alexas will automate our homes and provide companionship to our elderly. Digital ad engines will feed our deepest retail dreams, and drones will deliver them to us in record time.
