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 popular dating app Tinder and the language-learning website Duolingo have decided to collaborate to give users a chance to find love in another language. Tinder has been allowing users to use its "Passport" feature for free until April 30. This feature lets users set their location to anywhere they want in the entire world, which is how Duolingo will come in handy. "Passport is one of our most popular paid features and since it's been free we've had our busiest day of 2021," said Udi Milo, VP Product, Tinder. "In the first week alone there was a 25% increase in the number of matches made as a result of the feature, so a partnership with Duolingo will help our members spark conversations easily, no translation needed."

Founded in 2005, Rimini Street is a provider of support services for enterprise applications from companies like SAP, Oracle and Salesforce.com. The goal is to reach $1 billion in revenues by 2026. And to accomplish this, the company evaluated a myriad of AI solutions. But they all fell short. "In the end, we leveraged a combination of best of breed open source technology and tools to build our own AI platform that is very powerful, intelligent, extensible and scalable," said Brian Slepko, who is the Executive Vice President of Global Service Delivery at Rimini Street.
Four of the newfound quadruply imaged quasars are shown here: From top left and moving clockwise, the objects are: GraL J1537-3010 or "Wolf's Paw;" GraL J0659 1629 or "Gemini's Crossbow;" GraL J1651-0417 or "Dragon's Kite;" GraL J2038-4008 or "Microscope Lens." The fuzzy dot in the middle of the images is the lensing galaxy, the gravity of which is splitting the light from the quasar behind it in such a way to produce four quasar images. By modeling these systems and monitoring how the different images vary in brightness over time, astronomers can determine the expansion rate of the universe and help solve cosmological problems. With the help of machine-learning techniques, a team of astronomers has discovered a dozen quasars that have been warped by a naturally occurring cosmic "lens" and split into four similar images. Quasars are extremely luminous cores of distant galaxies that are powered by supermassive black holes.
Imagine you undergo a procedure in which every neuron in your brain is gradually replaced by functionally-equivalent electronic components. Let's say the replacement occurs a single neuron at a time, and that behaviorally, nothing about you changes. From the outside, you are still "you," even to your closest friends and loved ones. What would happen to your consciousness? Would it incrementally disappear, one neuron at a time?
The AI system absorbs ASAT trajectory data to identify possible targets. It then rapidly develops multiple courses of action, which could include maneuvering, countermeasures, or engaging in offensive or defensive activities. Operators and commanders then receive a timely menu of optimized choices, which accelerates command-and-control decision-making and strengthens space defense in mission-critical situations.
Welcome to AI book reviews, a series of posts that explore the latest literature on artificial intelligence. For decades, we've been trying to develop artificial intelligence in our own image. And at every step of the way, we've managed to create machines that can perform marvelous feats and at the same time make surprisingly dumb mistakes. After six decades of research and development, aligning AI systems with our goals, intents, and values continues to remain an elusive objective. Every major field of AI seems to solve part of the problem of replicating human intelligence while leaving out holes in critical areas.
Two years ago, computer science professor Dr. Meena Vimal Cruz handed her student Matthew Pittendreigh a project: use artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing to create a chatbot for the college. "In my teaching," said Dr. Cruz, "I mentor students and help them get hands-on experience, applying theoretical knowledge to real-world problems. We work on a project basis. A chatbot will act like an automated customer support to help prospective students apply, get connected, and answer important questions about resources and deadlines, any hour of the day or night." Matthew, already a veteran of Dr. Cruz's projects, jumped right in.
Intel Sports is changing the way fans watch, interpret, and digest live sporting events. Developing immersive experience on mobile and digital platforms, the company is pushing forward with the help of artificial intelligence. Recently, the company is involved in releasing their 3D Athlete Tracking Technology. This endeavor has generated traction and gained attention from multiple news organization.
