How does Artificial intelligence (AI) fit into the plans of a company that bestrides the worlds of both software and hardware? But thanks to its broad scope, HP can use AI to much wider effect. We checked in recently with Dr. Tony Lewis, Vice President and Global Head of HP's Artificial Intelligence and Emerging Compute Lab, to learn more about HP Lab's vision for using AI to build next-generation cyber-physical systems, why this is an especially exciting time to be working in the field, and how his lab is also investigating several other emerging areas of computer research. HP: Most major tech companies are now investing heavily in AI research. What would you say is different about HP Labs' approach?
The design industry is yet another area where AI is making huge strides. Just recently, an AI tool pulled from a database of dozens of patterns and colors to create 7 million unique packaging designs for Nutella. Let's take a closer look at how artificial intelligence is shaping the future of design. In addition to generating its own designs–as it did for Nutella–AI is the driving force behind modern web design. Artificial design intelligence (ADI) systems are democratizing website development, generating functional, attractive websites from the bottom up.
These days it seems that nearly every product and startup boasts some kind of A.I. capability, but when it comes to advancing this domain beyond simplistic machine learning technologists at MIT Technology Review's Future Compute conference say these A.I. will need to be more human than not. When discussing A.I. during the conference's first day on December 2nd, speakers focused on two distinct paths for this technology: more human-like A.I.'s as well as more computer-like humans. This dual approach was presented as a potential future for human-machine symbiosis. But what exactly does that all mean, and is it even a good thing? A research Scientist from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Catherine Schuman began the conversation by presenting her work on neuromorphic computing.
The world of Go, the traditional Chinese board game, has recently been shaken by the introduction of an elite player -- AI, developed by Google. AlphaGo, the program name of the player AI, has only been defeated once since its introduction in 2016, by Go master Lee Se-dol, according to an article by Vice News. Once defeated, Google trained a new version of the program by making it play against the original AI. When AlphaGo 2.0 beat its predecessor 100 times in a row, it was deemed sufficiently improved. Faced with a brand new insurmountable foe, Lee, considered one of the best human Go players in the world, retired.
JAKARTA: Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Thursday (Nov 28) ordered government agencies to remove two ranks of public servants in 2020 and replace their roles with artificial intelligence, in a bid to cut red tape hampering investment. Widodo made the remarks in a room full of leaders of big companies as he laid out a second-term agenda aimed at changing the structure of Southeast Asia's largest economy by reducing its reliance on natural resources. The president, whose new five-year term began last month after winning an election in April, said Indonesia should transition to higher-end manufacturing, such as electric vehicles and use raw materials like coal and bauxite in such industries, not just exports. Such transformation would require foreign investment and Widodo said he would improve the business climate by fixing dozens of overlapping rules and cutting red tape. To reduce bureaucracy, Widodo said the current top four tiers in government agencies would be flattened to two next year.
It is clear from the examples of artificial intelligence future possibilities discussed above that AI future has the potential to do so much good to the society to enhance our quality of life. Although there may be reasons for few concerns, which we have seen with every major invention, benefits of AI should outweigh its few negetive impacts as it continues to make progress. AI is going to revolutionize medical diagnosis, treatment and research, make daily tasks like driving simpler and safer, monitor the environment and conserve energy more efficiently and do so-many other things we are yet to imagine or realize. Artificial intelligence would help us in removing tedious tasks for humans, thereby giving us more time to do jobs that need critical thinking and creativity. In order to make future of artificial intelligence truly evolutionary in a positive way, we need a set norms, standards and practical methodologies to ensure that we use AI technology responsibly and to the benefits of the society.
Voice is now a staple of our everyday consumer lives. This isn't surprising as voice is a natural, more efficient way to perform tasks. And just as we've watched voice evolve as a mainstay in the consumer world, we're now seeing how it transforms business. But the stakes are higher in an enterprise setting. If a consumer voice assistant tells you the weather for the wrong city, the impact on your day is negligible.
Optimax was founded in 1991 by a group of Eastman Kodak workers and has since grown to more than 400 employees. Its market is broad and expanding, said Alejandro Mendoza, human resources manager. "Anything that needs light (to operate) needs some type of optical component," he said. "Anybody designing something that needs some type of optical component, we have the opportunity to work with." Mendoza added that Optimax's constant work with evolving technologies has taught it to explore any chance to use technology to improve systems and processes.
With decision-makers under pressure to not only embrace the likes of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, but also the fourth industrial revolution agenda, they must draw a distinction between what is real and what is hype. AI has significant potential in the country, but it must be applied correctly if it is to be successful. Increasing from $9.5 billion in 2018 to an expected $118.6 billion by 2025, AI has certainly become one of the fastest-growing ICT industries. And even though some analysts anticipate manufacturing will experience the highest AI usage growth, all sectors of the market will likely benefit from this approach that will fundamentally disrupt the way business is done. One of the underlying advantages of using AI-led systems, is how it is making work not only easier but more efficient as well.
