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 examine various methods for data clustering and data classification that are based on the minimization of the so-called cluster function and its modications. These functions are nonsmooth and nonconvex. We use Discrete Gradient methods for their local minimization. We consider also a combination of this method with the cutting angle method for global minimization. We present and discuss results of numerical experiments.

SAN FRANCISCO--Guiding Oracle's development of its latest generation of cloud applications are three main business imperatives: help customers innovate rapidly, create nimble processes, and make the most of their mobile, social, and other communications channels. Speaking at Oracle OpenWorld, Steve Miranda, executive vice president of applications development, emphasized the considerable work the company has done incorporating machine learning algorithms into its comprehensive, tightly integrated suites of cloud applications. "We're ready to run your business in the cloud," Miranda said. At Oracle OpenWorld, Steve Miranda, Oracle's executive vice president for applications development, outlines machine learning capabilities in the company's cloud applications. An intuitive, easy-to-use, voice-enabled user interface that runs on various computing platforms but is especially suited to mobile devices.
As the AI technology marches ahead with significant innovations and transformation, people do raise concern what its future beholds. The futuristic implications of AI swings between two aspects – first the anticipated positive impact of AI on economies and societies and the second negative impact of its potential over humankind. Specifically, the governments in Asia and the civil society residing in the region are concerned about structuring regulatory frameworks to guard against the possible threats. However, business leaders in Asia are quite optimistic about AI's positive impact on businesses, societies, and the welfare of humanity. Some do believe that AI will be the major growth driver for the region in the coming years.
U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry announced the establishment of the DOE Artificial Intelligence and Technology Office (AITO). The Secretary has established the office to serve as the coordinating hub for the work being done across the DOE enterprise in Artificial Intelligence. This action has been taken as part of the President's call for a national AI strategy to ensure AI technologies are developed to positively impact the lives of Americans. DOE-fueled AI is already being used to strengthen our national security and cybersecurity, improve grid resilience, increase environmental sustainability, enable smarter cities, improve water resource management, as well as speed the discovery of new materials and compounds, and further the understanding, prediction, and treatment of disease. DOE's National Labs are home to four of the top ten fastest supercomputers in the world, and we're currently building three next-generation, exascale machines, which will be even faster and more AI-capable computers.
It's quite marvellous that we are still using an expression coined over sixty years ago to describe the kind of'futuristic technologies' that many of us are only just beginning to acknowledge – yet so far few of us have experienced. But while for most of the time since then we have been happy enough to adopt a whole range of technology advances, why in the last ten or 15 years have we become increasingly cautious about the growth and development of AI? It might well be because the technologies we've experienced in the general office workplace so far haven't really made the big breakthroughs we were promised they would, and what has been delivered has made only incremental differences to our everyday lives. There has been no big bang as such, and so we've had sufficient advance warning and time to adapt, retrain or reinvent our way of working. Whilst in some environments the prospect of working alongside AI has been embraced and is well established, what we're continually being told is AI will in some industries and sectors replace people.

The phrase "artificial intelligence" in pop culture often conjures up dystopian images such as the sentient computer Hal 9000 from the 1968 film "2001: A Space Odyssey" that killed people for its self preservation; or the cyborg assassin with a metal endoskeleton in director James Cameron's "The Terminator." In recent years, our fascination with the potential of AI has taken a more starry-eyed turn, as shown in the 2013 sci-fi drama "Her," where the main character falls in love with a virtual assistant. In reality, artificial intelligence (AI) technology is quickly permeating every aspect of our lives. From Amazon's voice-activated Alexa to writing technology that helps managers craft job postings, AI is in our hearts, homes and workplaces. And it's only going to become a bigger part of our lives: Experts call the rise of AI the driving force behind the fourth industrial revolution.
In an attempt to prevent artificial intelligence-generated fake news from spreading across the internet, a team of scientists built an AI algorithm that creates what might be the most believable bot-written fake news to date -- based on nothing more than a lurid headline. The system, GROVER, can create fake and misleading news articles that are more believable than those written by humans, according to research shared to the preprint server ArXiv on Wednesday -- and also detect them. "We find that best current discriminators can classify neural fake news from real, human-written, news with 73% accuracy, assuming access to a moderate level of training data," the researchers wrote in the paper. "Counterintuitively, the best defense against Grover turns out to be Grover itself, with 92% accuracy." In other words, the algorithm is apparently able to detect AI-written fake news better than any other tool out there.
In the last blog, I reflected on how we promote and nurture an open innovation culture at Jade, including the organizational and business benefits that have resulted from this initiative. Now, I'd like to share with you one of the ideas that was born from open innovation. Let me give you some brief background first. It's no news that digital transformation has taken center stage in enterprises these days. Nearly eight out of 10 companies in the US are in the process of doing so, but fail to scale and sustain their digital transformation initiatives.1
