The Intersection of HR and Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Indeed, artificial intelligence is able to give driving directions or music and movie recommendations, control the lights in your house and unlock your car. It transforms people's lives by making them more efficient with the help of numerous services and programs. Besides, in the workplace, artificial intelligence continues to evolve into smart assistants helping us to work more effectively. However, it's not clear to consider artificial intelligence to be the future of our workplaces. Instead, it is rather something happening today.

Mashable

TL;DR: The Machine Learning Master Class bundle is on sale for £29.85 as of August 4, saving you 91% on list price. Thanks to developing artificial intelligence technologies, computer are smarter than ever before. Along with those technologies has come a relatively new category of computer science called machine learning, or ML. Similar to statistics, ML involves computer systems that utilise algorithms to automatically learn about data, recognise patterns, and make decisions, all without outside intervention or explicit directions from human beings. In the real world, you can find it being used in smart assistants like Siri and the Amazon Echo, in online fraud detection services, in the facial recognition feature that identifies photos of you on Facebook, and more recently, in Tesla's self-driving car.


Top Emerging NLP Companies in India

#artificialintelligence

These days everyone needs their machines to talk, and the only way by which a computer can communicate is through Natural Language Processing (NLP). Take the case of Alexa, a conversational item by Amazon. An inquiry is passed to it by the mode of voice, and it can answer by a similar medium, i.e., voice. The market situation of NLP is quite promising. The buzz of NLP in the market is increasing in an aggressive way which is expected to reach the mark of $ 16 billion by 2021 with the compound growth rate of 16 % yearly.


Google smart speakers secretly updated to listen for more than wake words

Mashable

Google Home smart speakers, the company dryly warns in a note buried deep on a support page, can "incorrectly" record their users even when they haven't first said an activating wake phrase like "hey, Google." It just so happens that, at least for a brief period of time this summer, those microphone-enabled devices were doing exactly that. The company admitted Monday, following a report by Protocol, that it had updated an unspecified number of Google Assistant-enabled devices to respond to auditory cues beyond the user-specified wake phrase. Google told Protocol this was a mistake that was quickly fixed, but did not appear to address the larger privacy concerns that such a mistake signifies. After all, how are users supposed to trust a live microphone in their home if someone can remotely update it to be even more invasive without their knowledge?


5 reasons why Microsoft is even entertaining a Tik Tok purchase

ZDNet

Microsoft's talks to acquire Tik Tok don't make a whole lot of sense on the surface. In fact, nothing about this deal makes sense given you have a tech giant that is known for the enterprise, President Trump tweeting about Tik Tok, legislators chiming in and a 45-day deal deadline. Sure, I've read a few Wall Street analysts do some mental gymnastics to argue for the Microsoft purchase of Tik Tok. Depending on price ($10 billion too good to pass up and $50 billion crazy), Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is going to have some explaining to do. With all that said, here is a bit of informed speculation about why this Microsoft-Tik Tok lunacy is happening. The Department of Defense's JEDI cloud contract is to be announced soon.

As Elon Musk stated recently, "We're headed toward a situation where AI is vastly smarter than humans and I think that time frame is less than five years from now. But that doesn't mean that everything goes to hell in five years. It just means that things get unstable or weird." This statement does add value to the fact that more AI gadgets can actually make our lives easier. The below examples will show you how.
