Baidu's former chief scientist says companies need an AI strategy now VentureBeat AI


In his view, businesses are best off hiring a leader with deep knowledge of the field who can help build up an organization's knowledge and capabilities in a centralized way. Ng likened the need for centralized AI talent to the rush for mobile talent earlier in the century. When iOS and Android were new, it was harder for businesses to hire people with strong expertise developing mobile applications. As a result, businesses had to build centralized teams for building their mobile apps.

Future Of IoT, Machine Learning, And Artificial Intelligence


As the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) grow and expand, the way companies and industries doing business and the way customer responds to the market have been changing swiftly. The way industries and customer-oriented companies are doing business using Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), they have come to the conclusion that AI and IoT will design and define the future and will create a trend of success or failure. According to some estimates, spending on the Healthcare IoT solutions will reach $1 trillion within one decade and will reach the stage for highly personalized, accessible, and on-time Healthcare services for everyone. The companies have access to massive customer data from their various interactions with online apps and websites are in a stage of earning millions of dollars for what they have in hand, the data.

Using artificial intelligence for forgery: Fake could be eerily real - IoT Agenda


The researchers envision the future version automatically producing realistic sound effects good enough for use in movies and television. A startup called Deep Art uses a technique known as style transfer -- which uses neural networks to apply the characteristics of one image to another -- to produce realistic paintings. Other work being done on multimedia manipulation using artificial intelligence includes the creation of 3D face models from a single 2D image, changing the facial expressions of someone on video using the Face2Face app in real time and changing the light source and shadows in any picture. Secret agents control millions of botnet social media accounts that tweet about politics in order to shape national discourse.



Artificial Intelligence is learning how to take down internet bullies by being trained to recognise patterns of abuse to curb trolling. Jigsaw is training Artificial Intelligence (AI) to recognise patterns of abuse to take down online bullies. The aim of this task is to build a moderation system, using AI and machine learning, allowing for better comment moderation on websites. Much like Jigsaw, this Finnish company is working to provide a service using AI to minimise negative and potentially harmful comments for companies and their social media sites.

Killer robots? Musk and Zuckerberg escalate row over dangers of AI


Tech billionaires Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have entered into a public squabble about artificial intelligence in which Musk described the Facebook CEO's knowledge of the field as "limited". The groundwork for the world's nerdiest fight was laid by Musk, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO, earlier this month, when he pushed again for the proactive regulation of artificial intelligence because he believes it poses a "fundamental risk to the existence of civilization". Enter Zuckerberg, who on Sunday denounced these types of warnings as "pretty irresponsible". Writing on his Facebook page, he said: "As I'm here in Africa, I'm deeply disappointed to hear that SpaceX's launch failure destroyed our satellite that would have provided connectivity to so many entrepreneurs and everyone else across the continent."

Cyberpsychology and How AI Affects Humans - DZone AI


We use it in every walk of life -- when we were kids, we formed relationship bonds with our parents, siblings, and friends; we learned about physical and emotional worlds by forming connections using our minds. But now, we are entering into a wave of innovation that will require these devices to replicate right-brain operations such as intuition, emotion, and empathy. Now, as we move from the Internet of Screens era to the Internet of Things era, it is important that we work on developing our understanding of and psychological relationship with this technology. As the volume of these devices hits the trillions, it is much more important that we evolve our Experience of Things rather than simply build a huge mesh of connected devices in our everyday world.

The Artificial Intelligence Revolution: Part 1 - Wait But Why


So here's how it actually feels to stand there: Imagine taking a time machine back to 1750--a time when the world was in a permanent power outage, long-distance communication meant either yelling loudly or firing a cannon in the air, and all transportation ran on hay. In order for someone to be transported into the future and die from the level of shock they'd experience, they have to go enough years ahead that a "die level of progress," or a Die Progress Unit (DPU) has been achieved. Kurzweil suggests that the progress of the entire 20th century would have been achieved in only 20 years at the rate of advancement in the year 2000--in other words, by 2000, the rate of progress was five times faster than the average rate of progress during the 20th century. All in all, because of the Law of Accelerating Returns, Kurzweil believes that the 21st century will achieve 1,000 times the progress of the 20th century.2 If Kurzweil and others who agree with him are correct, then we may be as blown away by 2030 as our 1750 guy was by 2015--i.e.

Cutting Through the Internet's Tangled Web of Information


New York-based AlphaSense has created a software-based search engine that uses a unique mix of natural language processing and advanced linguistic tools, to uncover key insights for financial professionals in seconds. In an interview with Globalive Chairman Anthony Lacavera, Jack Kokko, CEO of AlphaSense, explains how their algorithms outperform the rest.

What Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg both get wrong about AI


In a recent Facebook Live post, Zuck said he was "really optimistic" about AI and that it would deliver innumerable improvements to our lives over the next 5-10 years. The promise and the peril of current AI tech is better found in efforts like Andy Rubin's company Essential, which aims to be the "universal translator" for the smart home. Rubin's plan isn't just to create a phone and a swarm of useful smart-home projects, but to make them -- and his platform, Ambient OS -- universally compatible. Analyzing a person's or a family's physical graph -- and crunching that data in aggregate -- makes the utopian vision of Rubin and Zuckerberg possible.

Do you trust China to be the world leader in AI (Artificial Intelligence)? Internet, Information Technology & e-Discovery Blog


The New York Times reported that China "laid out a development plan on Thursday to become the world leader in A.I. by 2030, aiming to surpass its rivals technologically and build a domestic industry worth almost $150 billion." The July 20, 2017 report entitled "Beijing Wants A.I. to Be Made in China by 2030" included these details on the plan: In budget proposals, the Trump administration has suggested slashing resources for a number of agencies that have traditionally backed research in A.I.
