How Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Are Shaping Cybersecurity - Indusface Blog

#artificialintelligence

According to the 2016 Data Incident Response Report, human error is still to blame for most security breaches. In order to stop complex attacks, thousands of pieces of ever-changing data and anomalies need to be quickly analyzed in order to find potential incidents. Artificial intelligence and machine learning can rapidly and efficiently detect threats, resolve them, and prevent them in the shortest amount of time possible with the greatest potential for resolution. And because the landscape of hacking technology and cybersecurity best practices is constantly changing, it requires that type of rapid learning to make sure your business stays safe.


Engineers create ultra-high resolution images in anti-counterfeiting breakthrough

ZDNet

The team of engineers developed nanoscale plasmonic colour filters that display different colours depending on the orientation of the light that hits it. Plasmonic colour filtering has provided a range of new techniques for "printing" images at resolutions beyond the diffraction-limit, significantly improving upon what can be achieved using the traditional, dye-based filtering methods. While a typical printed image in a magazine might consist of around 300 coloured dots per inch of page, or 300 DPI, a page printed with structural colour techniques could reach a resolution of 100,000 DPI or more, the engineers explained. Lead researcher and PhD student at the ANU Research School of Physics and Engineering Lei Wang touted the complex holographic image advancement as opening the door to imaging technologies such as those seen in science fiction movies.


The Amazing Ways Coca Cola Uses Artificial Intelligence And Big Data To Drive Success

@machinelearnbot

The Coca Cola Company is the world's largest beverage company selling more than 500 brands of soft drink to customers in over 200 countries. Fruits of this research were unveiled earlier this year when it was announced that the decision to launch Cherry Sprite as a new flavor was based on monitoring data collected from the latest generation of self-service soft drinks fountains, which allow customers to mix their own drinks. As sales of sugary, fizzy drink products have declined in recent years Coca Cola has also hooked into data to help produce and market some of its healthier options, such as orange juice, which the company sells under a number of brands around the world (including Minute Maid and Simply Orange). Speaking at Mobile World Congress this year, global senior digital director Mariano Bosaz said "content creation is something that we have been doing for a very long time – we brief creative agencies and then they come up with stories … what I want to start experimenting with is automated narratives."


This Crystal Mimics Learning and Forgetting - Facts So Romantic

Nautilus

There's also forgetting--when you have limited space for memory, it's vital to be able to make room for new memories, and SNO can do that, too: After a period of time without exposure to hydrogen, SNO's electric resistance decreases. SNO may be the first synthetic material to both habituate and gradually forget--organism-like properties strange to witness in a lifeless, synthetic crystal. Unable to forget 0 when shown another digit, the STDP algorithm muddled 0 and 1, and then, shown the next digit, muddled all three. But the second algorithm, called adaptive synaptic plasticity (ASP), used SNO's ability to remember and gradually forget information and was able to represent each successive digit with little trouble.

Fruits of this research were unveiled earlier this year when it was announced that the decision to launch Cherry Sprite as a new flavor was based on monitoring data collected from the latest generation of self-service soft drinks fountains, which allow customers to mix their own drinks. The company combines weather data, satellite images, information on crop yields, pricing factors and acidity and sweetness ratings, to ensure that orange crops are grown in an optimum way, and maintain a consistent taste. Speaking at Mobile World Congress this year, global senior digital director Mariano Bosaz said "content creation is something that we have been doing for a very long time – we brief creative agencies and then they come up with stories … what I want to start experimenting with is automated narratives."


AI that can tell you how to vote - 'Nigel' knows what's best for you - Computer Business Review

#artificialintelligence

Scientists from Kimera Systems have developed a robot that will be able to help users make political decisions. The robot named'Nigel' uses artificial intelligence (AI) to become aware of its user's life and utilise the information by offering advice to user's including how to vote. Unlike other AI robots Nigel programmes itself as it goes, rather than teach itself how to perform and effectively carry out tasks. The newly developed AI system is aware of personal needs and understands their day-to-day routines and the activities they carry out.


Augment raises $5 million to help customer service agents with AI

#artificialintelligence

Augment today announced it has raised $5 million for an AI platform that assists customer service agents at large companies. The company joins competitors like Mattersight, DigitalGenius, LivePerson, and others in its efforts to train AI using conversations between customers and businesses in order to better guide customer service agents. The money will be used to bolster the Augment AI platform, which is trained by an aggregated dataset made up of 100 million conversational interactions at large companies, including Dyson. Call center agents are often slowed down in their work by the need to sift through documents, product information, or knowledge bases to find information for customers.


Intelligence Agencies Bank on AI, Social Media to Process Data

#artificialintelligence

AI is not only changing the way intelligence agencies process data but also how they gather it. Collecting data from social media by intelligence agencies is nothing new. In fact, data gathered from social media presently makes up a huge percentage of overall data collected. "If we were to attempt to manually exploit the commercial satellite imagery we expect to have over the next 20 years, we would need eight million imagery analysts," Cardillo said this as a remark to the anticipated exponential increase in the amount of data that can be collected with advancements in satellite and signals intelligence collection technology.
