We are living through historically significant times. Technological changes are so significant and accelerated that our linear minds have difficulty grasping the non-linearity of the situation. We are living in exponential times -- it looks like our human civilization is running towards'singularity'.
Federal agencies aim to advance their use of artificial intelligence and accompanying emerging technologies, like machine learning, in the coming years. While there are some examples of nascent uses of AI across government already, agencies are aware they must set goals and prioritize policies that intelligently usher in the technology before its maximum potential can be fulfilled. The U.S. Postal Service, for example, will focus on AI and its potential over the coming decade to better serve its hundreds of millions of customers. Similarly, the Department of Homeland Security's science and tech arm spent almost a year drafting an artificial intelligence and machine learning framework that will guide the agency's enterprisewide pursuits of those technologies for the coming years. The government's standard-setting body, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, is engaging external stakeholders as it works to develop an AI risk management framework that could later inform and benefit agencies seeking to make use of the emerging technology.
For the last couple of years the coronavirus has been teaching a master class on exponential growth: from January 2020, when 100 cases in China led the WHO to call a public health emergency, to today, when there have been over 239 million cases worldwide. Before that, as people have begun to forget, exponential growth was perhaps best known as the secret behind the rise of computers. Moore's Law -- the observation made by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore that the number of transistors on an integrated chip doubles roughly every two years -- is the reason the smartphone in your pocket is more than a thousand times more powerful than the biggest computers 50 years ago, which only governments and large organisations could afford. The exponential growth of computer power led the inventor Ray Kurzweil to propose the Law of Accelerating Returns and predict that by 2045 machine intelligence will pass that of humans -- a.k.a. the Singularity. In Exponential: How Accelerating Technology is Leaving Us Behind and What to Do About It, Azeem Azhar begins with the perception that Kurzweil's take was too narrow and that exponential growth is taking place in no less than four converging sectors: computing, energy, biology, and manufacturing.
Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be composed of random and abstract lines, generally without ever lifting the drawing device from the paper, in which case it is usually called a "scribble". What are the importance of using Doodle in internet marketing? As a unique form of animation, doodle videos show a hand drawing the cartoon as a narrator speaks your marketing message. The combination of listening to the marketing message and watching as the hand draws the cartoon keeps viewers watching and absorbing more of the information you want to get across.These days, viewers consume so many marketing messages that you need to do something different to keep them watching. Doodle Videos are one of the most effective and memorable ways to get your marketing message across.Doodle videos use the power of cartoons to help tell a story.Stories are proven to be an effective way of helping people remember important facts, such as the features and benefits of your product or service.When a person watches a hand drawing the first letter of a word, then the second, the brain naturally tries to predict what the word will be.
Gil Makleff, former CEO of UMT Consulting Group (now EY), and Artem Koren, former CTO of Visual Trading Systems are two industry leaders in this space who are working to improve this problem with Sembly. For example, Sembly AI's "Glance" technology provides a topical digest of a meeting, improving people's ability to glean the vital takeaways, cutting through the clutter and retaining the elements of highest importance. From acoustic properties of a room to spoken accents or domains of discussion, systems used to discern speakers have required elite refinement to handle even the most basic meeting. All three companies, Family First Life, ReinventU, and Good Rancher participated in a study that showed virtual meeting efficiency improved by 25% after bringing AI solutions into the fold. Present in so many of the technologies we use everyday, AI could be considered an extension of business teams: a note-taking, deliverable-assigning, meeting management machine that takes over the menial tasks, executing on them with precision and elegance.
AIs have come a long from the time they were created decades back. We were blessed enough to be born in the time where AIs aren't the thing of future anymore, they're freaking reality. However not everyone is happy about the sudden outburst of AI development. People have the fear that AI will steal there job and unemployment of "humans" will rise. It's not like that every AI is capable of replacing a human but the recently developed Open AI's GPT-3 is somehow scary for most of the people. It is capable of writing code for UI by just reading the user's desire.
Artificial intelligence outperforms human intelligence. It can digest data at breakneck speed and stay concentrated on a single job without being distracted. AI can forecast events in the future and utilize sensors to look around physical and virtual corners. So, why does AI get it so wrong all of the time? The algorithms that describe how artificial intelligence works are created by humans, and the processed data represents an imperfect reality.
A number of academics and tech entrepreneurs agree: computer intelligence will one day meet and exceed human intelligence. But almost none of them agree on what happens after that. Depending on who you ask, it could be the end of the world or the greatest period of human prosperity we've ever known. I am squarely in the prosperity camp, but Hollywood lends a lot of momentum to those in the doomsday camp. Movies like Terminator, Transcendence, and The Matrix share the archetypal plot point that machines will enslave or kill mankind.
The word singular refers to just one instance of an object or occurrence. A secondary definition of the word describes that oneness as remarkable or outstanding. A singular individual might also be described as unique. Bitcoin is a technological singularity by both definitions of the word. There is only one Bitcoin network. There is no other distributed network of digital money, property, and energy, that has the guarantees that Bitcoin offers, that is also immune to capture or forfeiture by governance.
Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) services have increased in popularity in recent years and are ready to become a popular mode of financing. Experts claim that demand for BNPL has been accelerating in India for the past three to four years. Further, COVID-19 has boosted its demand. BNPL has now established itself as a more comfortable payment option, reducing borrowers' financial stress by providing no-cost EMIs. Uni Cards, which recently secured $18.5 million in financing, has launched its Uni Pay 1/3rd card. The product aims to enhance the customer experience in the credit card business.
