Artificial intelligence is everywhere, watching almost all modern-day human behaviors


One of the problems in demystifying artificial intelligence is that once an AI-based product reaches the public, "we stop calling it AI," said Tara Chklovski, the CEO and founder of Iridescent, a nonprofit that aims to educate and empower children and their parents on engineering and technology matters. Instead, she went on, "we call it GPS." This is true. And it's a significant truth because it means the world of AI stays mired in the average person's mind as something of a science fiction-type character -- a Terminator programmed to kill, a Matrix hero designed to liberate, a Star Wars robot set to serve. But AI is not one and the same as a robot. Simply put, AI is everywhere. And people ought to know. The average person ought to be aware. In a sense, AI is watching and recording almost all modern day human behaviors. Ever wonder where all those recommendations come from when you buy a book on Amazon or watch a movie online? That's AI at work, taking note of your selections and ...

Unsupervised Machine Learning: The Path to Industry 4.0 for the Coal Industry


Artificial intelligence and machine learning aren't just fictional pieces of futuristic Hollywood movies. Power plants can deploy these innovative technologies today to more accurately predict the condition of assets and schedule appropriate maintenance to correct equipment problems before failure. Although the new administration in Washington has reversed the "war on coal," long-term trends in the U.S. are not promising. Most coal-fired capacity was built between 1950 and 1990, and the average coal plant is about 42 years old. With plant retirements expected to continue in 2018 and beyond, investment in new plants has come to a standstill.
