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) …
The YouTube originals series "The Age of A.I." was released in December 2019. If you haven't already seen it now could be a good time to catch up – with much of the world in enforced or voluntary isolation many of us will be stuck at home with hours to fill. Sit back and marvel at the many incredible, and often heart-warming, applications of AI. Gil makes music using AI and has teamed up other researchers at Georgia Tech to create smart prosthetics for amputees, combining ultrasound signals and machine learning. Episode 3: Using A.I. to build a better human Episode 6: Will a robot take my job?
Colleges around the world have been forced to shut down due to the coronavirus, but a group of students in Japan are not letting the pandemic ruin their graduation. Using Newme telepresensence robots, students attending Business Breakthrough (BBT) University in Tokyo were able to walk across the stage and accept their diploma, all while self-isolating at home. The robots were dressed in a cap and gown and fitted with tablets on their heads, allowing students to show their face using Zoom. Students who attended the graduation remotely operated the robots in what is deemed the'world's first' online graduation ceremony. Four students virtually walked across the stage at the Hotel Grand Palace in Tokyo on March 28.
The state of Washington has made it legal for law enforcement and other state agencies to use facial recognition. The new law makes Washington the first state in the US to legalize facial recognition software for government business. Facial recognition has been used by a number of law enforcement agencies at the city and county level, but it has never been formally legalized at either the state or federal level. Washington has become the first state in the US to officially legalize facial recognition software for law enforcement, which it says will be limited to finding missing persons, identifying the deceased, and'for the purposes of keeping the public safe' According to the law, facial recognition will be limited to a handful of uses, including efforts to'locate or identify missing persons, and identify deceased persons, including missing or murdered indigenous women, subjects of Amber alerts and silver alerts, and other possible crime victims, for the purposes of keeping the public safe.' Agencies that want to use facial recognition technology will have to file a notice of intent with the state government along with an accountability report that details how and why they need the technology, according to a report in InfoSecurity.
An artificial intelligence that can predict how a piece of glass responds to heat and pressure could one day also be used to model traffic flow. While most solid materials have a regular atomic structure, the atoms in glass have a more irregular arrangement, resembling a liquid that has been frozen in place. Physicists have long wanted to know more about this "glass transition". "Given that glasses are everywhere – from windows to your phone screen – it's odd that we don't really understand its structure and dynamism," says Victor Bapst at AI firm DeepMind.

Micro Focus (NYSE: MFGP) today announced the Vertica 10 Analytics Platform, which includes major updates for operationalizing machine learning at scale and expanding deployment options for Vertica in Eon Mode, enabling the most intensive variable workloads across major cloud and on-premises data centers. With Vertica 10, organizations are better equipped to unify their data siloes and take advantage of the deployment models that make sense now and in the future in order to monetize exponential data growth and capture real-time business opportunities. "Over the years, many organizations have successfully captured massive amounts of data, but are now challenged with getting the business insights they need to become data-driven. The market demand to leverage cloud architectures separating compute from storage needs to be balanced with the higher costs and increased risk of cloud-only data warehouses, while machine learning projects with tremendous potential have struggled to make their way into production," said Colin Mahony, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Vertica, Micro Focus. "Vertica 10 expands the options for a unified analytics strategy to address growing data siloes, a mix of cloud, on-premises, and hybrid environments, and the pressing need to operationalize machine learning at scale."

Maps are foundational to Uber and power predictions of pricing, estimated time of arrival for the riders and driver-partners. But the dynamic nature of the application, adding the traffic congestion problem in a populated country poses a hurdle to the smooth functioning of the cab aggregator. Uber's Bangalore engineering center works on Maps as one of its five core agendas. The team focuses on improving the routing-, time- and distance- information. Map's accuracy is imperative for efficient functioning of the cab aggregator.
