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 are awash in digital images from photos, videos, Instagram, YouTube, and increasingly live video streams. Working with image data is hard as it requires drawing upon knowledge from diverse domains such as digital signal processing, machine learning, statistical methods, and these days, deep learning. Deep learning methods are out-competing the classical and statistical methods on some challenging computer vision problems with singular and simpler models. In this crash course, you will discover how you can get started and confidently develop deep learning for computer vision problems using Python in seven days. Note: This is a big and important post. You might want to bookmark it.
Gradient Dissent by Weights and Biases We started Weights and Biases to build tools for Machine Learning practitioners because we care a lot about the impact that Machine Learning can have in the world and we love working in the trenches with the people building these models. One of the most fun things about these building tools has been the conversations with these ML practitioners and learning about the interesting things they're working on. This process has been so fun that we wanted to open it up to the world in the form of our new podcast. We hope you have as much fun listening to it as we had making it. Today our guest is Nicolas Koumchatzky.

It has started just 1 or 2 peoples out there … just few days you might not have used it … important, this is not new playing … must started 2020. We feel peoples will use #AI soon … but now it has become exactly to work with #Robots started soon!! I looked, at #UiPath and #PEGA … these might working well … Let use see how it worked!! They hope that things work automotive … that is the way company thinks will work … but in reality people have to know at lease now, may be it will be sleet after some time. At #UiPath will provide changes #free in will be done … but I think, some changes will be needed envoy … did you know home?
We will cover use cases and case studies for graph analytics and machine learning that include real-time fraud detection at four of the top five global banks, personalized offers for 300 million consumers and care path recommendations to improve the well being of 50 million patients. We will also share open source community initiatives that are leveraging graph analytics to analyze COVID-19 data.
In 1979, an innovative two-minute TV commercial gave Britain a glimpse of the future. Choreographed to music from Rossini's Barber of Seville, hi-tech machines built the Fiat Strada. The tagline was "Handbuilt by Robots." Humans were nowhere to be seen in the Turin factory where the ad was shot, but the film crew knew where the people were: outside, on picket lines protesting the loss of their jobs. Fast forward nearly 40 years and "the robots are coming, they want to replace us, and there's nothing we can do to stop them" isn't the plot of the next season of Westworld, it's a real-world warning that's becoming louder with each new leap in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.
With COVID-19 affecting 206 countries, areas and territories, IBM (NYSE: IBM) is helping government agencies, healthcare organizations and academic institutions throughout the world use AI to put critical data and information into the hands of their citizens. With a flood of information requests from citizens, wait times in many areas to receive answers can exceed two hours. Available for no charge for at least 90 days and available to our client's citizens online or by phone, IBM Watson Assistant for Citizens on the IBM public cloud brings together Watson Assistant, Natural Language Processing capabilities from IBM Research, and state-of-art enterprise AI search capabilities with Watson Discovery, to understand and respond to common questions about COVID-19. "While helping government agencies and healthcare institutions use AI to get critical information out to their citizens remains a high priority right now, the current environment has made it clear that every business in every industry should find ways to digitally engage with their clients and employees," said Rob Thomas, general manager, IBM Data & AI. "With today's news, IBM is taking years of experience in helping thousands of global businesses and institutions use Natural Language Processing and other advanced AI technologies to better meet the demands of their constituents, and now applying it to the COVID-19 crisis. AI has the power to be your assistant during this uncertain time."
The COVID-19 outbreak has spurred considerable news coverage about the ways artificial intelligence (AI) can combat the pandemic's spread. Unfortunately, much of it has failed to be appropriately skeptical about the claims of AI's value. Like many tools, AI has a role to play, but its effect on the outbreak is probably small. While this may change in the future, technologies like data reporting, telemedicine, and conventional diagnostic tools are currently far more impactful than AI. Still, various news articles have dramatized the role AI is playing in the pandemic by overstating what tasks it can perform, inflating its effectiveness and scale, neglecting the level of human involvement, and being careless in consideration of related risks. In fact, the COVID-19 AI-hype has been diverse enough to cover the greatest hits of exaggerated claims around AI.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has progressed dramatically in the past decade, and one of the most useful products of this AI revolution is AI chatbots. They can help reduce the time taken to resolve queries of customers and also lessen the load on customer service agents. According to Gartner, nearly 25% of all customer service operations will use chatbots by 2020. A major reason for this is the fact that brands are investing in improving the customer experience. As many as 84% of organizations were expected to increase their investments in customer experience technology in 2017.
