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) …
We're all fortunate to work within a sector that never sits still. There is so much drive from operators, suppliers and bettors to keep innovating and improving customer experiences. The post-PASPA world has brought additional sources of innovation and inspiration and our world of sports content and technology continues to increase in speed.
Apple's new high-end iPhone will make any traditional camera manufacturer tremble. The iPhone 11 Pro, unveiled at a special Apple event on Tuesday, not only has three cameras in the back--each having its own functions--but also for the first time utilizes artificial intelligence to take a photo. Yes, the next time you feel proud of snapping a perfect pic, it may have actually been the little robot living inside your phone. Here's how it works: On the iPhone 11 Pro, every time you are about to take a picture, the cameras will quickly take eight images of the object before you press the shutter. When you actually take a photo, the phone will compare your image against the eight previously taken ones and merge the best pixels of each image into one final product.
London-based insurtech Concirrus has launched a new artificial intelligence-powered cargo data analytics solution in partnership with brokers Marsh JLT Specialty and Willis Re Specialty. The company claims it has the potential to "revolutionise" the way cargo insurance is priced, selected and managed in the industry. The new solution, called Quest Marine Cargo, will be available from first quarter 2020, and will fully integrate with Concirrus' existing suite of hull and P&I capabilities. It will provide full analytics on the entire cargo journey - from factory gates to customer warehouse using advanced AI combined with the latest cargo monitoring. Concirrus said the launch is a part of its wider innovation strategy which is centred around developing solutions that deliver greater efficiencies to the 300-year old re/insurance industry.
Smart farming is not a standalone technology, but more to do with interconnected technologies. The three major technologies that it is connected to are MIS (Management Information Systems), precision agriculture and automation & robotics. MIS is used to collect and process data needed to carry out operations and functions on the farm. It can even store and disseminate data as well. Precision agriculture, on the other hand, is the management of spatial and temporal variability to gain higher returns on investment, so that the environmental impact of these agricultural activities is minimal.
It's estimated that there are about 36 million people in the world who are blind, and a further 216 million who live with moderate to severe visual impairments. Although the World Health Organization points out that up to 80% of vision impairment around the world is avoidable with better access to treatment, the number of people who are blind or have low vision is rising as the global population ages. But technology is playing a vital role in tearing down barriers, and artificial intelligence is making real inroads into improving accessibility. Here are seven examples of how smart technology can be a game-changer, allowing everyone to interact with the world in new ways. As we've reported, Microsoft's Seeing AI is an app designed to help people with low vision or who are blind.
Although AI (Artificial Intelligence) is still in its early stages for ERP software, the demand for the technology is rising each day. During the 1990s, ERP was the emerging trend and companies were looking to utilize the new functionality and opportunities this trend brought. Many customers moved from manual systems and spreadsheets to ERP software with the main aim of improving efficiency. Today, ERP is a very common term within the industry and most companies who have adopted ERP software in their organizations are asking the question'what is next?' AI is an emerging trend but understanding terms like Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) which are causing digital disruption can create a misperception in the market. Today, more than before, companies need to understand how AI fits into ERP software as well as the benefits it can provide.
What would an adventure game designed by the world's most dangerous A.I. look like? A neuroscience grad student is here to help you find out. Earlier this year, OpenAI, an A.I. startup once sponsored by Elon Musk, created a text-generating bot deemed too dangerous to ever release to the public. Called GPT-2, the algorithm was designed to generate text so humanlike that it could convincingly pass itself off as being written by a person. Feed it the start of a newspaper article, for instance, and it would dream up the rest, complete with imagined quotes.
Have you ever been worried on a tour, if you've switched off a light bulb back home? We've all had this confusion at least once, for there was no way you could ensure that everything was perfect. Now, with AI, we don't need to leave anything to chance nor assumptions. AI provides perfect ways to ensure that use of appliances is optimized perfectly when in use and when not in use. Let's imagine some of the ways through which AI and Smart Home Automation will impact and change the way we live: Amazon's Alexa, Google Home, Apple's Siri and Microsoft's Cortana have all optimized and automated living inside a home to a great extent.
