AI is the New Black

#artificialintelligence

On February 9, 2017, two technology market leaders made announcements: SAP unveiled its next-generation intelligent ERP system, and Nvidia announced that demand for artificial intelligence (AI) applications was driving demand for its graphics platform. Simply speaking, cognitive computing refers to self-learning systems that mimic the way the human brain works. In the SAP announcement, the "intelligent" piece of "intelligent ERP" comes from a digital assistant (SAP CoPilot) of which users can ask questions and to which they can give commands via voice, text, or gestures, just as they would to a human assistant. We might do the same on our path to build artificial intelligence brains."

On February 9, 2017, two technology market leaders made announcements: SAP unveiled its next-generation intelligent ERP system, and Nvidia announced that demand for artificial intelligence (AI) applications was driving demand for its graphics platform. On the face of it, these announcements were business as usual – routine sound bites that proliferate in the tech news landscape. Look a bit deeper, though, and you realize that this day marked a profound shift in both the way businesses use technology and the implications for the rest of us. For decades, developing a computer that could think has been the Holy Grail of technology. And while we have made tremendous progress in our ability to process vast amount of data, the "thinking" part has remained mostly elusive.


SAPVoice: What To Do About The Chatbot Invasion At Work

Forbes

Spurred by the rise of chatbots in consumer apps, companies are giving voice (literally) to virtual assistants in the workplace. Gartner research predicts that by 2020, we'll conduct 30 percent of our web browsing sessions without a screen. While these analysts envision the impact on consumers as they drive, cook or exercise, this newest generation of voice-first applications promises even more for employees in the workplace. Gartner predicts we'll conduct 30 percent of our web browsing sessions without a screen by 2020 . Technology that speeds up daily tasks with simple voice commands will have a tremendous effect.

The Essential Ingredient In Enterprise AI: Good Data

#artificialintelligence

When it comes to getting the most out of artificial intelligence, large quantities of high-quality data are essential. For example, Google's algorithms have learned to read lips, by watching thousands of hours of television. The algorithms were even able to discern the concept of a "cat" from first principles, using the vast contents of Google's YouTube video library. Machine learning algorithms are now being applied to the world of work, and they will be able to process much larger data sets than human experts. For example, a radiologist who looks at medical scans for a living might see tens of thousands of them over a lifetime, developing deep expertise.


SAP aims to step up its artificial intelligence, machine learning game as S/4HANA hits public cloud ZDNet

#artificialintelligence

SAP S/4HANA is going multi-tenant public cloud. Can SAP bring AI to its customer base? SAP is planning to step up its machine learning and artificial intelligence efforts in hopes that its applications will have a broader reach when it comes to automating processes such as employee approvals, payment processing, and sales discounting. At the New York Stock Exchange Thursday, SAP is outlining its public cloud versions of its S4/HANA enterprise resource planning suite. The ERP cloud suites come in three versions focused on project management, finance, and enterprise management and are hosted in SAP data centers.

AI in the enterprise - how software vendors from IBM to SAP are striving to make systems smarter

#artificialintelligence

The world's biggest tech companies are investing heavily in artificial intelligence (AI): software that can learn to think and solve problems in a human-like way. Each company takes a slightly different approach to making business processes smarter through the development and deployment of machine learning, or cognitive computing. David Schatsky, head of the trend-sensing program for the US innovation team at Deloitte said at the AI Summit in London earlier this year that the big victories in artificial intelligence over the last couple of decades have all been in games, from IBM's Deep Blue mastering chess in 1997, to Deep Mind's AlphaGo beating Lee Sedol at Go this year.
