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) …
The cybersecurity industry has always been under constant strain from malware and cyber criminals. However, due to recent breakthroughs in machine learning and AI-enabled technologies, the cyber-security industry is no exception; security solutions are able to scale and automate their processes intelligently. With increasing integration of software services and hardware, into every aspect of our lives, the task of keeping data secure has now become more tedious. The arsenal of tools that cyber criminals today have at their disposal has raised several concerns for security companies. This has created criminals into threat actors who are able to disseminate and penetrate a target's defenses using custom-built and never-before-seen malware.
Microsoft believes that lessons from a liberal arts education are necessary for the proper development of AI. In 2011, Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates told a panel of American governors that a liberal arts education would hold back college graduates in the modern economy. A few days later, late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs declared that "it's technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our heart sing." Seven years later, Gates' company is siding with Jobs. Microsoft president Brad Smith and EVP of AI and research Harry Shum wrote in their new book "The Future Computed" that "one of the most important conclusions" of Microsoft's recent research into artificial intelligence is that lessons from liberal arts will be critical to unleashing the full potential of AI.
The purpose of this post is to give the reader detailed understanding of Principal Component Analysis with the necessary mathematical proofs. In real world data analysis tasks we analyze complex data i.e. multi dimensional data. We plot the data and find various patterns in it or use it to train some machine learning models. One way to think about dimensions is that suppose you have an data point x, if we consider this data point as a physical object then dimensions are merely a basis of view, like where is the data located when it is observed from horizontal axis or vertical axis. As the dimensions of data increases, the difficulty to visualize it and perform computations on it also increases.
You're sitting in the bleachers and the roar of powerful engines starts rising in the distance; seconds later the pack of Ferrari race cars speed past and you crane your neck around trying to see what position your favourite driver is in. That's the typical experience of car racing fans today, but if a partnership between Intel Corp. and Ferrari Motor Sports is a success, it might be much different tomorrow. A new system that involves artificial intelligence and a fleet of drones shooting video was showcased by Intel at CES 2018 booth this year. Not only could it change the fan experience for auto racing, it's also providing Ferrari drivers more insight into their performance. Intel CEO announced the three-year partnership on stage during his keynote.
In this video we talk about Auto ML by Google brain. Auto ML is one of the first successful automated AI projects. Hi, welcome to ColdFusion (formerly known as ColdfusTion). Experience the cutting edge of the world around us in a fun relaxed atmosphere. Google's Artificial Intelligence Built an AI That Outperforms Any Made by Humans Google's New AI Is Better at Creating AI Than the Company's Engineers
In this opinion piece, Melotti Media founder Christopher Melotti (pictured below) explores how voice-activated virtual assistants will significantly change the landscape of marketing, content creation and copywriting. The next revolution in technology and marketing is voice. The age of voice-activated virtual assistants and vocal command technology is upon us – Apple's Siri, Google's Home, Amazon's Alexa, Samsung's Bixby, Microsoft's Cortana, Ozlo, X.ai, just to name a few. History shows that the businesses who embrace new opportunities like this are the ones to reap to rewards, while those who lag behind become quickly ignored by customers. My message to brands: don't get left behind.
Nobody sets out to be biased, but it's harder to avoid than you would think. Wikipedia lists over 100 documented biases from authority bias and confirmation bias to the Semmelweis effect, we have an enormous tendency to let things other than the facts to affect our judgments. We all, as much as we hate to admit it, are vulnerable. Machines, even virtual ones, have biases too. They are designed, necessarily, to favor some kinds of data over others.
Artificial intelligence, or AI, is everywhere these days, from self-driving cars and voice-activated software like Siri and Alexa. It's being used in fields from criminal justice to finance. So this year in All Tech Considered, we're going to spend some time exploring AI. Its leadership wants to dominate the tech world. It's one way China can beat possible competitors and adversaries.
In the shadow of Amazon's offices in downtown Seattle, people enter a tiny grocery store, take whatever they want, and then walk out. And nobody runs after them screaming. This is what it's like to shop at Amazon Go, the online retail giant's vision for the future of brick-and-mortar stores. There are no checkout clerks, or even checkout stands. Instead, a smartphone app, hundreds of regular and infrared cameras on the ceiling (black on black, so they blend in), computer-vision algorithms, and machine learning work together to figure out what you're picking up and charge you for it on a credit card connected to your Amazon account.
The technology inside Amazon's new convenience store, opening Monday in downtown Seattle, enables a shopping experience like no other -- including no checkout lines. SEATTLE -- The first clue that there's something unusual about Amazon's store of the future hits you right at the front door. It feels as if you are entering a subway station. A row of gates guard the entrance to the store, known as Amazon Go, allowing in only people with the store's smartphone app. Inside is an 1,800-square foot mini-market packed with shelves of food that you can find in a lot of other convenience stores -- soda, potato chips, ketchup.
