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) …
Feature stores began in the world of Big Data, with Spark being the feature engineering platform for Michelangelo (the first feature store) and Hopsworks (the first open-source feature store). Nowadays, the modern data stack has assumed the role of Spark for feature stores - feature engineering code can be written that seamlessly scales to large data volumes in Snowflake, BigQuery, or Redshift. However, Python developers know that feature engineering is so much more than the aggregations and data validation you can do in SQL and DBT. Dimensionality reduction, whether using PCA or Embeddings, and transformations are fundamental steps in feature engineering that are not available in SQL, even with UDFs (user-defined functions), today. Over the last few years, we have had an increasing number of customers who prefer working with Python for feature engineering.
Jon Crowcroft has been the Marconi Professor of Communications Systems in the Computer Laboratory since October 2001. He has worked in the area of Internet support for multimedia communications for over 30 years. Three main topics of interest have been scalable multicast routing, practical approaches to traffic management, and the design of deployable end-to-end protocols. Current active research areas are Opportunistic Communications, Social Networks, Privacy Preserving Analytics, and techniques and algorithms to scale infrastructure-free mobile systems. He leans towards a "build and learn" paradigm for research.
The AI Index is an independent initiative at the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI), led by the AI Index Steering Committee, an interdisciplinary group of experts from across academia and industry. The annual report tracks, collates, distills, and visualizes data relating to artificial intelligence, enabling decision-makers to take meaningful action to advance AI responsibly and ethically with humans in mind.
SentinelOne an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, unveiled XDR Ingest, a disruptive step in democratizing XDR. XDR Ingest provides SentinelOne customers with a limitless data platform to ingest, retain, correlate, search, and action all enterprise security data – real time and historical, from any source. All Singularity XDR customers receive an included ingestion allocation for data, telemetry, and logs from any external source. Included free of charge is also the ingestion of all SentinelOne native data. Together, XDR Ingest offsets the costs of log storage and eliminates unnecessary data duplication.
Quanergy Systems, Inc., a leading provider of LiDAR sensors and smart 3D solutions, announced that Prime Secured will use Quanergy's products and software to provide its customers with greater physical security and flow management capabilities. "We've been very impressed with the performance of Quanergy's products and solutions – and the wide array of applications. With Quanergy's technology, we're able to provide our customers in the gaming space with an analytics platform that gives them deeper insight into activity at their facilities." As the company looks to expand into new industries such as gaming, Prime Secured has placed a multi-million dollar order with Quanergy that will begin with a deployment at a major casino. The gaming facility sought a fully automated, more efficient and more productive physical protection platform.
Data analytics is the process of examining data sets in order to draw conclusions about the information they contain, increasingly with the aid of specialized systems and software. Data analytics technologies and techniques are widely used in commercial industries to enable organizations to make more-informed business decisions. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is where we first heard the term cognitive technology. Technology experts began seeing the benefits of AI among consumer and business application. Amazon's Alexa and chatbots are two that come to mind that is now ubiquitous in homes and businesses.
He graduated w/Special Honors in ChE & later Cert. in Quality Mgmt. Syndicated research (silicon photonics); writes for trade press and web communities. Served Fortune 1000 and FTSE 250 companies in a variety of projects, including global market/product strategy and most recently deep analytics and forecasting. Following ten years in government research and management (Deputy Director, National Measurement Laboratory (US DoC NIST) and Chief, Chemical Engineering Division of NIST), Mr. Bateman worked at several start-ups in electronics and antennas, resulting in 100s of products and several patents. Mr. Bateman led efforts to bring design and manufacturing of telematics and in-building antennas to China and Malaysia, and was key in creating an Automotive Connectivity Unit in Laird, and led technical diligence for multiple acquisitions and creation of an Infrastructure Antenna Unit.
Scientists and engineers are constantly developing new materials with unique properties that can be used for 3D printing, but figuring out how to print with these materials can be a complex, costly conundrum. Often, an expert operator must use manual trial-and-error – possibly making thousands of prints – to determine ideal parameters that consistently print a new material effectively. These parameters include printing speed and how much material the printer deposits. MIT researchers have now used artificial intelligence to streamline this procedure. They developed a machine learning system that uses computer vision to watch the manufacturing process and then correct errors in how it handles the material in real time.
