6 AI ingredients every wireless networking strategy needs

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is all the rage these days. There's broad consensus that AI is the next game-changing technology, poised to impact virtually every aspect of our lives in the coming years, from transportation to medical care to financial services. Gartner predicts that by 2020, AI will be pervasive in almost every new software product and service and the technology will be a top five investment priority for more than 30 percent of CIOs. An area where AI is already showing enormous value is wireless networking. The use of machine learning can transform WLANs into neural networks that simplify operations, expedite troubleshooting and provide unprecedented visibility into the user experience.


AI, robotics, IoT, augmented and virtual reality to bolster ICT spending

ZDNet

Technologies related to the Internet of things, robotics, artificial intelligence and virtual and augmented reality will juice global information and communications technology spending, according to IDC. Information and communication technology (ICT) spending includes traditional IT as well as telecom services. IDC is forecasting traditional ICT spending to lag gross domestic product (GDP) through 2020, but new technology investment will boost overall spending. According to IDC, ICT spending will jump from $4.3 trillion in 2016 to $5.6 trillion by 2021. That growth equates to a 6 percent compound annual growth rate.


Here's how citizen scientists assisted with the disaster response in the Caribbean

#artificialintelligence

The post-disaster environment poses immense challenges for crisis response teams tasked with assessing the extent of the damage as quickly as possible, often over thousands of square miles. These teams need a sound and reliable understanding of the situation on the ground, to quickly and safely provide the right help to the people affected. Citizen scientists from around the world can play a key role in delivering this information to emergency responders on the ground. In the wake of hurricanes Irma and Maria, which swept across the Caribbean during September 2017, an ongoing collaboration between the Zooniverse (an online citizen science platform), the University of Oxford, and NGO Rescue Global, has enlisted thousands of volunteers worldwide to analyse satellite-based information. The end result is a series of maps that highlight affected areas, providing a robust source of information which helps Rescue Global and the disaster relief community to generate more detailed mapping, and conduct needs assessments, aid deliveries and evacuations on the ground.


Natural Stupidity is more Dangerous than Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Do you know what's more dangerous than artificial intelligence? In this article, I will explore natural stupidity in more detail and show how our current technology (driven by narrow artificial intelligence) is making us collectively dumber. We've all had this experience of using a GPS to guide us around an unfamiliar place only to realize later that we have no recollection or ability to get to that place again without the aid of a GPS. Not only is our directional instinct diminish because of lack of use, but so is our own memories. We've all experienced losing our ability to recall due to our over use of Google.


Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence 101 For Executives

@machinelearnbot

There have been many "ages" throughout human history, most notably the industrial age and the digital age. Now, we have officially entered the age of artificial intelligence (AI). Within this AI age are many technologies, including machine learning and deep learning. These are fundamentally transforming and altering the business landscape. Its ability to revolutionize the world has been likened to what electricity did in its day.


How 5G Will Affect the Internet of Things? - SmartData Collective

#artificialintelligence

The Internet of Things (IoT) is at the heart of modern big data. It's what allows companies, and even cities, to collect endless quantities of information with minimal effort – and to act on that information, monetizing it, basing decisions on user data. Right now, though, IoT is on the edge of change because there's a new kid on the scene: 5G connectivity. Now phones act like computers and the competition for the next cutting edge innovation is stiffer than ever. As of this writing, 5G wireless technology is not yet ready to launch but the competition to bring it to market is stiff.

Evidence around inequality for APPG AI – Doteveryone – Medium

#artificialintelligence

The following is my presentation, representing Doteveryone, for today's APPG AI evidence session. Artificial intelligence does not in and of itself reduce or create inequality. AI is a tool, and its outcomes are determined by the way we humans use it. Currently, the biggest users and developers of AI are the organisations with access to the most expertise, data and computer hardware. These are largely private sector companies working to solve private sector problems, creating wealth for a few.


The rise of artificial intelligence means doctors must redefine what they do

#artificialintelligence

We work under the threat of being replaced by machines smarter than us. Vinod Khosla, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist, says that the medical profession is approaching extinction and predicts that the majority of our work will eventually be outsourced to algorithms and other artificial tools of clinical reasoning. But I think my profession is headed to evolution, not extinction. Much of what we once did with our eyes, hands, and ears has been replaced by machines. In my corner of the United States, a child who comes to an emergency department with abdominal pain is likely to have a CT scan before ever being examined by a physician.


Increasing Social-Media Engagement Is Crucial But You Don't Need a Larger Team to Do It

@machinelearnbot

There are many technological trends affecting businesses today that have proved to be extremely effective, such as chatbot marketing to increase engagement. In addition, the development of social media and widespread use of mobile devices have completely changed the business landscape for large and small companies. Social media engagement has become one of the biggest indicators of a company's local presence and overall popularity. Facebook, Instagram and other popular social media platforms provide companies with a direct communication line with their consumers and vice versa. To top it off, the development of artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual assistants now let companies provide help to consumers around the clock without having to hire more team members.
