What Is Artificial Intelligence (AI)

#artificialintelligence

Natural language processing (NLP) enables an intuitive form of communication between humans and intelligent systems using human languages. NLP drives modern interactive voice response (IVR) systems by processing language to improve communication. Chatbots are the most common application of NLP in business. Advanced virtual assistants, sometimes called conversational AI agents, are powered by conversational user interfaces, NLP, and semantic and deep learning techniques. Progressing beyond chatbots, advanced virtual assistants listen to and observe behaviors, build and maintain data models, and predict and recommend actions to assist people with and automate tasks that were previously only possible for humans to accomplish.

Real-world AI assistant: Google combines a large language model with an everyday robot

#artificialintelligence

In the PaLM-SayCan project, Google is combining current robotics technology with advances in large language models. Advances in large-scale AI language models have so far mainly arrived in our digital lives, such as text translation, text and image generation, or behind the scenes, when tech platforms use language AI to moderate the content. In the PaLM-SayCan project, various Google divisions are now combining the company's most advanced large-scale speech model to date with an everyday robot that could one day help in the home – an assistant for the real world. But that will take a while yet. Google unveiled the giant AI language model PaLM in early April, crediting the model with "breakthrough capabilities" in language understanding and, specifically, reasoning. PaLM stands for "Pathways Language Model" – making it a building block in Google's grand Pathways AI strategy for next-generation AI that can efficiently handle thousands or millions of tasks.


What Are The 10 Best AI Consulting Firms

#artificialintelligence

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has described the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) as more revolutionary than the discovery of fire or electricity. According to PwC, it has the potential to contribute $15 trillion to the global industry by 2030. I have worked with countless organizations on their AI strategies; however, companies wanting to capitalize on AI face significant barriers regarding the skills and resources needed to put it to use. To bridge this gap, many businesses turn to AI consultancies. These experts have the specialized knowledge and experience required to help companies deploy AI to create more intelligent products and services, improve their internal processes, and ultimately make better use of the data available to them. One of the most frequently asked questions I get from clients is: can you recommend an AI consulting firm to help us turn our AI ambitions into practice?


Using videos to optimize engagement in search-driven buyer journeys - Channel969

#artificialintelligence

The process of acquiring a customer begins with your first contact. There are several stages a consumer goes through before becoming a customer and then a loyal customer. A buyer's journey starts with identifying or expressing a need. This need then has to be fulfilled in some way or the other. With over eight billion searches per year, real buyer journeys are complicated and may take weeks or months.


Google's New Robot Learned to Take Orders by Scraping the Web

#artificialintelligence

Late last week, Google research scientist Fei Xia sat in the center of a bright, open-plan kitchen and typed a command into a laptop connected to a one-armed, wheeled robot resembling a large floor lamp. The robot promptly zoomed over to a nearby countertop, gingerly picked up a bag of multigrain chips with a large plastic pincer, and wheeled over to Xia to offer up a snack. The most impressive thing about that demonstration, held in Google's robotics lab in Mountain View, California, was that no human coder had programmed the robot to understand what to do in response to Xia's command. Its control software had learned how to translate a spoken phrase into a sequence of physical actions using millions of pages of text scraped from the web. That means a person doesn't have to use specific preapproved wording to issue commands, as can be necessary with virtual assistants such as Alexa or Siri.


OK Google, get me a Coke: AI giant demos soda-fetching robots

#artificialintelligence

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug 16 (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google is combining the eyes and arms of physical robots with the knowledge and conversation skills of virtual chatbots to help its employees fetch soda and chips from breakrooms with ease. The mechanical waiters, shown in action to reporters last week, embody an artificial intelligence breakthrough that paves the way for multipurpose robots as easy to control as ones that perform single, structured tasks such as vacuuming or standing guard. Google robots are not ready for sale. They perform only a few dozen simple actions, and the company has not yet embedded them with the "OK, Google" summoning feature familiar to consumers. While Google says it is pursuing development responsibly, adoption could ultimately stall over concerns such as robots becoming surveillance machines, or being equipped with chat technology that can give offensive responses, as Meta Platforms Inc (META.O) and others have experienced in recent years.

Amazon's Echo Show 15 smart display is on sale for $60 off

Engadget

If you've been in the market for a large smart display, it might be worth taking a look at Amazon's Echo Show 15, which is currently on sale. You can snap one up for $190, which is $60 off the regular price of $250. Amazon released the device last year and we gave it a score of 78 in our review. We admired the large, bright screen and the picture frame design. We found the widgets (which include ones for headlines, weather, calendar, sticky notes, recipe suggestions and package delivery tracking) to be handy.
