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) …
Every CISO's worst nightmare is that their organization will become the victim of a cyberattack. Unfortunately, this is a scenario that is becoming increasingly likely every day, as threats actors are ready to exploit new and more sophisticated vectors. For example, supply-chain-based attacks, such as the SolarWinds SUNBURST attack, are not simple system vulnerabilities. These attacks consist of a complex series of actions in which the initial infection is just the first step and are both more and more commonplace and difficult to prevent. This particular attack swept the globe since the campaign activation in March 2020, targeting the finance, government, healthcare, education and infrastructure verticals alike.
Right from image recognition to fraud detection, there are barely any ways left where the magic of machine Learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) has not mesmerized us with. Together, both ML and AI have changed the way we interact with data and use it to enable massive digital growth. On that note, customers too have benefitted from its magic, in identifying data and then using that data to receive accurate outputs. Today, in this blog, we will walk you through the three types of machine learning. But before that, let us brush up on some of the basics.
Tesla is getting ready to roll out a software upgrade that will allow a select few drivers to use more autonomous driving features in cities. Up to now, the beta versions of driver assistance software made available to thousands of drivers in the US have been designed for the relatively more simple environment of highways. Computer-assisted urban driving would bring Tesla a step closer to CEO Elon Musk's vision of fully self-driving vehicles. But safety officials think the company is getting ahead of itself, and putting drivers at risk. "Basic safety issues have to be addressed before they're then expanding it to other city streets and other areas," Jennifer Homendy, chair of the National Transportation Safety Board, a federal agency that investigates transportation accidents, said in a Sept. 19 interview with The Wall Street Journal.
The latest iteration of Amazon's battery-powered Ring doorbell adds a new feature to capture the early details of events most competitors would miss without needing to be plugged in. It tops Ring's battery-powered range, which starts at £89. The look and basic function of the Doorbell 4 is very similar to Ring's older models. It has a camera with night vision, motion sensors and a large doorbell button. When someone pushes the button Ring's signature chime plays and an alert is sent to your phone. You can view a live feed and speak through the doorbell using the app from anywhere with internet.
Rapid advancement in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies over the next decade will allow insurers to capitalise on the capture of vast swathes of digitised data from diverse sources, Finity says. Gone are the days of the data only being stored in database tables. More and more data organisations are now leveraging "natural language" data: documents, emails, transcribed phone conversations, and photos and videos. The amount of data stored in the digital universe globally has been estimated at 44 zettabytes – around 40 times the number of stars in the observable universe, or 4.4 followed by 22 zeroes. "As insurance professionals we know the importance and power of data and this trend isn't going to slow," Finity Principal Marcello Negro said.

Governments are increasingly using artificial intelligence to improve workflows and services. Applications range from predicting climate change, crime, and earthquakes to flu outbreaks, low air quality, and tax fraud. Artificial agents are already having an impact on eldercare, education, and open government, enabling users to complete procedures through a conversational interface. Whether replacing humans or assisting them, they are the technological fix of our times. In two experiments and a follow-up study, we investigate factors that influence the acceptance of artificial agents in positions of power, using attachment theory and disappointment theory as explanatory models.
Bomberland is a new 1v1 AI competition developed by Coder One. It features a multi-agent adversarial environment inspired by the classic console game, Bomberman. Your task is to program an intelligent agent navigating a 2D grid world. Your agent controls a team of units collecting powerups and placing explosives, with the ultimate goal of taking your opponent down. Bomberland is a challenging problem for out-of-the-box machine learning algorithms.
