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) …
Dating when you're 40 or older can be intimidating -- unlike when you're in your 20s or 30s, you can't assume everyone your age is single and looking. If you've found yourself "on the market" again, it's important to remember that half of U.S. marriages do end in divorce, so the dating pool isn't as small as you might think. Meeting people organically out in public still happens, but sometimes it's easier and less intimidating to meet people where they are. There's a comfort in knowing that the people you find on dating apps are single (hopefully) and looking for a romantic relationship, so at least you're both on the same page. The first step is just acknowledging that you're ready.
You might not notice it, but you've likely adopted artificial intelligence into your daily life. It can be as simple as personalizing your news feeds, searching for products on shopping sites or voice-to-text conversion on smartphones. It can also be applied to more sophisticated tasks like predicting court outcomes in cases involving employment law or used for robotic welding applications. The transformative power of AI is also an economic growth driver, which is why the Canadian government has given the green light to advancing the country's AI strategy. According to a recent announcement from Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry François-Philippe Champagne, more than $443 million in Budget 2021 is designated for the second phase of the pan-Canadian Artificial Intelligence Strategy.
In immediately's market, enterprise success typically lies within the capability to glean correct insights and prediction. Nonetheless, ground engineers and analysts have a tough time getting the knowledge on the proper occasion to make an knowledgeable resolution when there's a failure throughout operations. To make it simple to detect and reply to occasions from IoT sensors and purposes, AWS IoT Occasions lets you detect occasions throughout 1000's of IoT sensors sending totally different telemetry information. Occasions are patterns of information that would assist determine extra difficult circumstances than anticipated, comparable to modifications in gear when a belt is caught, or movement detectors utilizing motion alerts to activate lights and safety cameras. AWS IoT Occasions lets you merely choose the related information sources to ingest, outline the logic for every occasion utilizing easy'if-then-else' statements, and choose the alert or customized motion to set off when an occasion happens.
The University of Florida is offering artificial intelligence courses to its faculty and staff for free as part of a years-long push to establish itself as an AI leader. After an internal announcement earlier this month, the university on Monday announced that AI microcredentials, which normally each cost around $240 and take four hours to complete, are freely available. The courses were developed in a collaboration between four of UF's colleges to familiarize professionals with AI. Making the credentials available to staff for free can help give context to people in departments like enrollment, fundraising or student life to speak about the institution's AI investments, said Regina Rodriguez, a provost fellow for professional education. "Being able to know that you are knowledgeable about a specific area that university is taking on and building across every single college is so important because then you can come to the table with knowledge or at least understanding the vocabulary and not feel intimidated," she told EdScoop.
A small fleet of Cruise robotaxis in San Francisco suddenly stopped operating on Tuesday night, effectively stopping traffic on a street in the city's Fillmore district for a couple of hours until employees were able to arrive. TechCrunch first noticed a Reddit post that featured a photo of the stalled driverless cabs at the corner of Gough and Fulton streets. Cruise -- which is General Motor's AV subsidiary -- only launched its commercial robotaxi service in the city last week. The rides feature no human safety driver, are geo-restricted to certain streets and can only operate in the late evening hours. Cruise apologized for the incident in a statement, but gave little explanation for what caused the mishap.
Explanation methods that help users understand and trust machine-learning models often describe how much certain features used in the model contribute to its prediction. For example, if a model predicts a patient's risk of developing cardiac disease, a physician might want to know how strongly the patient's heart rate data influences that prediction. But if those features are so complex or convoluted that the user can't understand them, does the explanation method do any good? MIT researchers are striving to improve the interpretability of features so decision makers will be more comfortable using the outputs of machine-learning models. Drawing on years of field work, they developed a taxonomy to help developers craft features that will be easier for their target audience to understand.
X-ray vision has long been a staple power for superheroes, but soon mere mortals could see hidden objects with a little help from AI. Researchers at the University of Glasgow have demonstrated a "ghost imaging" system that reads the brainwaves of a person looking at light scattered off a wall to identify an object around a corner. The new breakthrough is part of an emerging branch of technology known as non-line-of-sight (NLoS) imaging, which allows the viewing of objects obscured by obstacles. Sometimes, it involves beaming laser light onto a surface, around a corner and back to a camera sensor, then using algorithms to decode the scattered returned light to identify the object. For the new study, the researchers swapped out the camera for human eyes.
A crewless robotic boat retracing the 1620 sea voyage of the Mayflower has landed near Plymouth Rock. The sleek Mayflower Autonomous Ship met with an escort boat as it approached the Massachusetts shoreline Thursday, more than 400 years after its namesake's historic journey from England. It was towed into Plymouth Harbor -- per U.S. Coast Guard rules for crewless vessels -- and docked near a replica of the original Mayflower that brought the Pilgrims to America. Piloted by artificial intelligence technology, the 50-foot (15-meter) trimaran didn't have a captain, navigator or any humans on board. The solar-powered ship's first attempt to cross the Atlantic in 2021 was beset with technical problems, forcing it back to its home port of Plymouth, England -- the same place the Pilgrim settlers sailed from in 1620.
