One in three employees believe artificial intelligence (AI) will increase the number of jobs available in the future, with millennials especially positive, reveals CCS Insight's latest employee enterprise survey. More than half of employees expect artificial intelligence to affect their jobs within three years, with 70 percent feeling it will do so within the next decade. Microsoft Office 365 remains the most popular mobile app for work purposes, used by 39 percent of respondents. 'Our 2017 annual employee technology survey continues to measure the major technology shifts occurring in workplaces, but it also reveals some new and fascinating trends that are set to unfold over the next few years', says McQuire.
Scientists at IBM Research have collaborated with 20th Century Fox to create the first-ever cognitive movie trailer for the movie Morgan. Utilizing experimental Watson APIs and machine learning techniques, the IBM Research system analyzed hundreds of horror/thriller movie trailers.

With a vision that "artificial intelligence can play a big role in helping bring the world closer together," Facebook has opened a new AI research lab in Montreal as part of Facebook AI Research (FAIR). In addition, Facebook announced a $7 million in AI support for Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR), the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA), McGill University, and Université de Montréal (over 5 years). The software giant even allocated $6 million to the Université de Montréal and $1 million to McGill University for AI research (over 5 years). Last year, Facebook introduced DeepText--a deep learning based text understanding engine.
Disrupting traditional media Machine learning has disrupted traditional media by enabling personalisation. However, as much as data analysis and deep learning has disrupted traditional media distribution, machine learning still relies on human judgement to work effectively. Despite fears that machine learning could threaten editorial jobs, online social platform Whisper delivers content developed using deep learning and data mining techniques to over 30 million monthly users. Even when controlled by human editorial teams, data analysis and deep learning have disrupted traditional media distribution by essentially killing off serendipitous discovery.
One place where we can find AI technology winning is at the Autonomous Industry where Artificial Intelligence Companies like Tesla and Mercedes are making Self-Driving Cars. But, with the help of Artificial Intelligence, the Automobile industry is working on bringing Autonomous Cars in the world. These cameras mapped the Lane Lines, Motion Flow, Objects, Road Flow, Road Lights, and Road Signs. Either, AI technologies are going to be the greatest gifts to the mankind, or these Artificial Intelligence Companies will bring the greatest threat to humanity.
My bleak forecast does not stem from the notion behind the common fintech (financial technology) and insurtech (insurance technology) industry pitch that they will change their respective industries with innovation and better customer experiences, although I firmly believe that some of the startups will cause significant pain to the incumbents and will indeed change their respective industries. These organizations will use their customers and employees to sell banking and insurance solutions, and the big financial institutions will become at best dumb pipes. What is terrifying to imagine is a situation in which tech giants or other big companies provide financial service solutions at or below production costs. The new competitors would not need to earn money and could even afford to lose money in offering financial solutions if these features entice customers and new potential clients to use the companies' core offerings.
Also known as virtual agents, IM bots and artificial conversational entities, chatbots are computer programmes that can respond to text or verbal commands and questions, providing advice in the place of a human staff member. "Their rise is being driven by several converging trends: the popularity of messaging apps, the explosion of the app ecosystem, advancements in AI and cognitive technologies, conversational user interfaces and a wider reach of automation," he explains. "Conversational marketing or customer service provided by chatbots is an effective way for brands to have a one-on-one conversation with their customers, learn what they care about, and build long-term relationships to better serve them." "They're beginning to use automation bots to automate order downloads; instantly allocate and fulfil orders; change the order status based on payment, allocation and fulfilment status; and send the order to the warehouse for fulfilment and shipping," he says.
It started because I was curious about conversational interfaces and natural language processing, but it's turned into more than that. Here are a few I've picked up from my first year with Growthbot: All chatbots are powered by natural language processing (NLP), a type of artificial intelligence. Your average chatbot is less intelligent than your average email service provider. Remember, your chat logs are basically the focus group to end all focus groups.
An attempt will be made to find how to make machines use language, form abstractions and concepts, solve kinds of problems now reserved for humans, and improve themselves." They left out the most important part of building intelligent machines, the intelligence … before we attempt to build intelligent machines we have to first understand how the brain things, and there is nothing artificial about that." If intelligence was a cake, unsupervised learning would be the cake, supervised learning would be the icing on the cake, and reinforcement learning would be the cherry on the cake. We need to solve the unsupervised learning problem before we can even think of getting to true AI."
Our planet has always been a dangerous place to live (climate change or no). In July this year, Facebook had to temporarily suspend its Artificial Intelligence (AI) research when two of its'chatbots' (Alice and Bob) began communicating with each other in a language they developed, independent of their programmers. The letter warned that artificial intelligence could potentially be more dangerous than nuclear weapons. In reality, the biggest threat might come when the super-AI of the future is linked into a neural network (which I'll go into in more detail next time) with access to all systems, including nuclear weapons.
