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) …
If an area has a very warm fall or very cold spring, people postpone buying the next season's clothes, and retailers end up selling more on sale than at full price. If an area has a very warm fall or very cold spring, people postpone buying the next season's clothes, and retailers end up selling more on sale than at full price. Weather events like snow storms can impact holiday shopping and may drive shoppers online instead of to physical retail locations.

By applying deep learning to unique data sets, coupled with MediaGamma's unique AI Decision Support Engine, the product is set to provide players in the ecosystem with over 90% certainty about a user's interests and demographic profile. The new product will help people to navigate uncertainty to make better decisions, and a major telecoms company has already signed up. By analysing relationships and signals that are difficult to pick up in datasets, our AI Decision Support Engine can make digital businesses more efficient, more relevant and more profitable." The MediaGamma probabilistic Decision Support Engine was developed for the edge-case of real time web scale advertising, but the engineering required to make that work also makes it applicable to many other business applications - the deal with a major telecoms company underlines this.

It also added a broad selection of security features designed to help organizations regulate the information they keep inside the system more tightly without hindering users. Shortly after the release of the update, a cloud-based analytics startup called mParticle Inc. announced that it has closed a 17.5 million funding round led by Bain Capital Ventures. Also last week, security analytics provider E8 Security Inc. raised 12 million from investors to spread the word about its mathematical approach to catching hackers. The startup's namesake threat detection platform aggregates activity information from employee endpoints and runs them through machine learning algorithms to identify anomalous behavior.
SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2016) - Technology leaders AMD, Dell EMC, Google, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Mellanox Technologies, Micron, NVIDIA and Xilinx today announced a new, open specification that can increase datacenter server performance by up to 10x, enabling corporate and cloud data centers to speed up big data, machine learning, analytics, and other emerging workloads. AMD "AMD is supporting OpenCAPI to bring high-performance accelerators from the Radeon Technologies Group into the datacenter, consistent with our work to establish open standards for accelerators that work across multiple processor architectures and suppliers," said Greg Stoner, AMD senior director, Radeon Open Compute. "Open standards and the open collaborations between companies and organization is key to develop the needed technology for the next generation cloud, Web 2.0, high performance, machine learning, big data, storage and more infrastructures."

When Kittlaus left Apple, he wrote an article called "Siri Is Only The Beginning," and later wrote that there would be a "Cambrian Explosion In AI," enabling the technology to power many existing and new systems. The Amazon Echo, Google's Home and the smart home hub Apple has been preparing are good examples of how big companies are fighting tooth and nail to secure a place on your counter top. I asked Kittlaus specifically about whether Samsung would be locking Viv away inside its ecosystem, to bolster its differentiation from Google's flavors of Android or iOS. The press release even says flat-out that "with Viv, Samsung will be able to unlock and offer new service experiences for its customers, including one that simplifies user interfaces, understands the context of the user and offers the user the most appropriate and convenient suggestions and recommendations."
