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) …
Thanks to AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnership funding held jointly by Historic Environment Scotland (HES) and the University of Glasgow, we are offering a 45 month (3.75 years) PhD scholarship on developing approaches to integrate automation-led detection routines into workflows used in the professional practice of archaeological prospection and landscape archaeology, notably for large scale heritage management. The supervisors will be Dr Rachel Opitz (Archaeology) and Dr Jan Paul Siebert (Computer Science) at University of Glasgow, and Dr Lukasz Banaszek and Mr David Cowley (HES). Automated detection routines have been viewed as potentially useful or even transformative for several decades, and recent progress in artificial intelligence (AI) based in machine learning and computer vision has moved these approaches from potentially interesting to practically implementable across a variety of applications. Within archaeology, the potential of AI-led approaches and heavily automated image processing for partially automating the identification of archaeological features and landscape changes has been demonstrated in several studies. Their implementation has brought measurable benefits, leading to increased investment in their development.
Machine Learning is on everyone's lips these days. But how can it help secure an online business from fraud? Talking to a number of fraud prevention professionals, we've noticed that many of them are looking for a more advanced, Machine Learning based solutions to address cybercrime issue. But how do these solutions really work? In this whitepaper, we'll explain what's behind the so-called "black box", show the actual ML process in fraud prevention, and compare the benefits of using ML and rule-based systems.
Will the critical shortages of therapy radiographers mean that we are about to be replaced by AI, robots and machine learning systems and that will essentially solve the training, retention and employment problems in our profession by stealth? The Society of Radiographers have just announced that the new apprentice programs are now "GO" and where a more vocational training environment in combination with a prospective employer and a degree course will allow employers to "attract and select individuals they believe have the potential to become radiographers". It has also been announced this month that the University of Portsmouth is to close its degree course in radiotherapy and oncology in 2020 for which the timing is particularly ironic and may well impact on recruitment in the South further exacerbating the current problem. I looked at these issues in my January blog and reported on some items in the media relating to this. The College of Radiographers published some of their latest feedback and information on Radiographer Apprenticeships in my February blog and now having read some of the latest books on the impact of Artificial Intelligence on us and especially the workplace, I thought it would be interesting this month to see how this might impact on our profession.
YouTube is a great place to learn about Python for machine learning. Below are the best YouTube playlists for Python that I have accumulated over months of learning. To ensure retention in what you learn, I suggest you watch the videos and make notes, either on paper or Google Docs. This way, you can remember what you learn. Not only that, it is a good practice to write code along with the videos, and write it after chunks and not follow in real-time.
It's not a matter of whether or not artificial intelligence will change the future of the IT industry, but how and to what extent it will change it. What a great year we had! 2019 brought us great transformation and excitements in the artificial intelligence (AI) space. The 21st century age is one of the exciting periods of human history where technological advancement is taking place in our daily life. We now have smartwatches monitoring patient's health, cars driving themselves, robots working in industries, and artificial intelligence unleashing unstoppable innovation every day. In fact, AI offers the opportunity for businesses to automate routine tasks so that humans can better use their time, providing higher valued contributions said, Ellie Mirman, CMO, Crayon.
That's all the time a pro hacker needs to infiltrate a company. And, unlike what you've seen in the movies, this isn't some hacker with extraordinary skills. Cybercrime statistics show us that 88% of pro hackers can boast the same level of efficiency. When that countdown starts, your company runs out of time fast. Unless you have a lightning-fast response time, your company could face serious reputational risk.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer the realm of science fiction. AI is quickly becoming a powerful new technology and is set to disrupt any sector that deals with large amounts of data, and education is no different. The academic world is still considered one of the most human sectors -- the most human of the humanities -- but that doesn't mean there aren't ways in which teachers and school workers can benefit from implementing artificial intelligence. Just like any other industry, teachers deal with a huge amount of admin, and they are often having to spread their finite time between an ever-growing student body. As a result, the quality and relevance of education is becoming difficult to maintain.

The latest research from Cisco says that global internet traffic will reach 4.8 zetabytes a year in 2022, or 150,700 gigabytes a second. That research was published before the current coronavirus pandemic, which may well have a dramatic change in the shape and per-type breakdown of global internet traffic as face-to-face meetings are being overwhelmingly replaced with video conference calls and live video streaming. For example, NAB, the biggest event of the year in media production and distribution, has recently announced it will switch to a virtual conference for the 2020 year, with live presentations and meetings taking place via video streamed over the web. We are all aware of the bandwidth issues and contention that can pose a risk for internet connections. This is particularly true for video transfer over IP because of its need for sustained and consistent data rates and for low-latency packet delivery.
