Now You Can Use Any Language With IBM Watson Assistant

#artificialintelligence

When venturing into the field of chatbots and Conversational AI, usually the process starts with a search of what frameworks are available. Invariably this leads you to one of the big cloud Chatbot service providers. Most probably you will end up using IBM Watson Assistant, Microsoft LUIS/Bot Framework, Google Dialog Flow etc. There are advantages…these environments offer easy entry in terms of cost and a low-code or no-code approach. However, one big impediment you often run into with these environments, is the lack of diversity when it comes to language options. This changed 17 June 2021 when IBM introduced the Universal language model.


An AI-Controlled Drone Racer Has Beaten Human Pilots For The First Time

#artificialintelligence

Drone racing is an increasingly popular sport with big money prizes for skilled professionals. New control algorithms developed at the University of Zurich (UZH) have beaten experienced human pilots for the first time – but they still have significant limitations. In the past, attempts to develop automated algorithms to beat humans have run into problems with accurately simulating the limitations of the quadcopter and the flight path it takes. Traditional flight paths around a complex drone racing course are calculated using polynomial methods which produce a series of smooth curves, and these are not necessarily as fast as the sharper and more jagged paths flown by human pilots. A team from the Robotics and Perception Group at UZH has developed a trajectory planning algorithm to calculates the optimal route at every point in the flight, rather than doing it section by section.


The Adoption of AI and Machine Learning in Healthcare: What is the Right Way to Proceed?

#artificialintelligence

The artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning is getting stronger than ever. Many applications and projects have been developed based on AI already. Take the example of Apple Siri or the advertising algorithms that pushes products and services based on our Google search. The question though is, can AI take the place of a human and replace him or her?! Some believe we will be able to teach a robot or artificial material to perform tasks quickly and efficiently than a human. The idea falls on the line of a screwdriver where we use it because we cannot unscrew just by using our bare hands.

High Tech Trends: Latest Trends in Technology 2021

#artificialintelligence

Technology is continuously updating at such a fast pace which it is might be quicker than light. A programming language that is making the rounds today might be obsolete by the next couple of days. As more money is invested in the development and research, professionals and computing scientists are continuously tweaking and enhancing current technologies to maximize them. Thus, new technologies and programming language, patch, library, and plug-in are released per hour. To maintain this fast pace of development, you need to keep on knowing the newest technology ideas.


The Role of Knowledge Graphs in Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Representing knowledge and the reasoning for the conclusions drawn has remained a cornerstone of artificial intelligence (AI) for decades. A knowledge graph (KG) is a powerful data structure that represents information in a graphical format. DBpedia, an open source knowledge graph defines a knowledge graph as "a special kind of database which stores knowledge in a machine-readable form and provides a means for information to be collected, organised, shared, searched and utilised." Formally, a KG is a directed labeled graph which represents relations between data points. A node of the KG represents a data point.


Edge AI software market to expand significantly by 2030 - Help Net Security

#artificialintelligence

The surging number of applications being deployed on the cloud in several industries, rapid improvements being made in the internet of things (IoT) domain, advancements in numerous smart applications, and growing popularity of AI software are the major factors driving the expansion of the global edge AI software market. Due to these factors, the market generated $600 million revenue in 2020, and it is expected to exhibit huge expansion during 2021–2030, according to P&S Intelligence. The imposition of lockdowns in several countries to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 infection negatively impacted the operations of many businesses, but positively impacted the growth of the edge AI software market. The COVID-19 pandemic has facilitated the progress of the medical services sector, with many organizations making huge investments in edge AI software to increase its applications in this sector. Moreover, with the increasing digitalization rate in the medical care and training sectors, the demand for edge AI software is rising sharply.


Now Google will display why it's showing you its search results

Mashable

The man behind the Google Search curtain is coming out to explain a few things. On Thursday, Google expanded the information that it attaches to search results to show users why they're getting the website recommendations they receive. This includes the "matching keywords" and "related terms" associated with your search that show up in the result, as well as whether other pages reference that link, and if it makes sense for your local area. Google doesn't make a secret of the factors that go into its search rank algorithm -- it spells everything out here. But showing how it applies that criteria to your specific query gives users a new, practical look under the Google hood.


Why Are Self-Driving Cars the Future and How are They Created?

#artificialintelligence

Due to the recent adaptive quarantine measures imposed in virtually all parts of the world, air travel, public transportation, and many other sectors took a really big hit in 2020. However, the automotive world and autonomous vehicles, in particular, have shown increased resilience during this difficult time. In fact, companies like Ford have increased their investments in the development of electric and self-driving cars by allocating $29 billion dollars in the fourth quarter of last year. Specifically, $7 billion of that money will go towards the development of self-driving cars. So Ford is joining General Motors, Tesla, Baidu, and other automakers in heavily investing in autonomous vehicles.


Tech Trends to Look Out for in 2021 - EasternEye

The pace at which technology is continuously evolving is unprecedented. Each and every day seemingly brings with it some new and exciting thing to be excited about in the world of tech. Fresh off a year that saw the world retreat indoors in an effort to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus, much of society grew more reliant and more accepting of technology as a whole. Technology played a big role in various aspects of everyday life such as communication, data transfer, analysis, and even entertainment. More than that, in the age of digital information, a smart device is being placed in the hands of someone new every single day.
