A third of employees see Artificial Intelligence as a job creator

#artificialintelligence

One in three employees believe artificial intelligence (AI) will increase the number of jobs available in the future, with millennials especially positive, reveals CCS Insight's latest employee enterprise survey. More than half of employees expect artificial intelligence to affect their jobs within three years, with 70 percent feeling it will do so within the next decade. Microsoft Office 365 remains the most popular mobile app for work purposes, used by 39 percent of respondents. 'Our 2017 annual employee technology survey continues to measure the major technology shifts occurring in workplaces, but it also reveals some new and fascinating trends that are set to unfold over the next few years', says McQuire.


How to use AI for link building and improve your search rankings

#artificialintelligence

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) has permeated the mainstream, as companies like Apple, Microsoft, Amazon and Google work diligently to make voice commands and voice search integrative parts of their OS and user experience. Many have likely heard of the Y Combinator-backed RankScience, which uses thousands of A/B tests to determine how best to positively influence search engine rankings. If these sites look like they are a good fit, add them to a potential candidate spreadsheet, with notes and contact information. Once you've analyzed the possibilities and weeded out blogs or influencers that won't work, add potential blogs and influencers to your potential candidate spreadsheet as mentioned above.


OracleVoice: Oracle OpenWorld: Got Customers? Better Get AI For The Best Customer Experience

#artificialintelligence

Oracle's approach to AI, known as Adaptive Intelligence, combines several technologies, including data science, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. In "Connected Intelligence Transforms Your Business," Jack Berkowitz, Oracle vice president of product management and data science for Adaptive Intelligent Apps, will describe how those applications solve specific business challenges, demo the apps, and talk about the roadmap to customer experience transformation. Another session, "Connected Intelligence for Better Service," shows service leaders how AI apps for CX can provide a holistic view of customers' interactions, quickly resolve open issues, and recommend the next-best actions. In "Decision Science and Artificial Intelligence for Enhancing Commerce," Tara Roberts, vice president of product management and UX for Oracle Adaptive Intelligent Apps, will explain how to refine, improve, and hyperpersonalize customer experiences for seamless cross-channel commerce.


The Future Of Artificial Intelligence, According To Pop Culture

#artificialintelligence

From the plot of movies like The Terminator to The Matrix, pop culture offers up innumerable examples of what could happen from the rise of the machines – and most of them, as you can imagine, steer towards the less optimistic side of the spectrum. Note: Since this graphic was made, Google's DeepMind computer program, AlphaGo, did defeat the Go world champion, Lee Sedol Some experts see AI having a $15.7 trillion impact on our economy, but pop culture offers up a slightly different perspective of what the future may hold. Here are just some of the scenarios offered up in mainstream movies, books, and television shows.

Machine Learning Lends a Hand for Automated Software Testing - The New Stack

#artificialintelligence

Now, a set of artificial intelligence-powered options like Microsoft's Security Risk Detection service and Diffblue's security scanner and test generation tools aim to make these techniques easier, faster and accessible to more developers. Microsoft Security Risk Detection (previously known as Project Springfield) takes a slightly different approach. The AI in Springfield combines two techniques; time travel debugging and constraint solving. Molnar is the researcher running the team behind Springfield; previously he helped apply the same techniques to products like Windows and Microsoft Office, finding a third of the security bugs discovered by fuzzing in the Windows 7 client.


How to make robots we can trust

For example, what (inter)national laws should be enacted to regulate autonomous system development and deployment? For some domains the system's decision making process should take into account relevant human values. These may include privacy, human autonomy and safety. Similarly, developing software that can take into account human values requires philosophy and sociology.


Machine Learning at HPC User Forum: Drilling into Specific Use Cases

Dr. Weng-Keen Wong from the NSF echoed much the same distinction between the specific and general case algorithm during his talk "Research in Deep Learning: A Perspective From NSF" and was also mentioned by Nvidia's Dale Southard during the disruptive technology panel. Tim Barr's (Cray) "Perspectives on HPC-Enabled AI" showed how Cray's HPC technologies can be leveraged for Machine and Deep Learning for vision, speech and language. Fresh off their integration of SGI technology into their technology stack, the talk not only highlighted the newer software platforms which the learning systems leverage, but demonstrated that HPE's portfolio of systems and experience in both HPC and hyper scale environments is impressive indeed. Stand-alone image recognition is really cool, but as expounded upon above, the true benefit from deep learning is having an integrated workflow where data sources are ingested by a general purpose deep learning platform with outcomes that benefit business, industry and academia.

#artificialintelligence

Intimate computing is when it knows you. While today's sales assistant is a device, such as a smartphone or a laptop, within 10 years it will become something you can talk to, similar to the Amazon Echo. It will be as if you have someone whispering real-time sales intelligence in your ear. That's why my preferred term is not artificial intelligence but augmented intelligence, because this technology actually makes the human salesperson much more capable by augmenting them.

How AI apps for banks are changing the face of the financial sector

#artificialintelligence

This not only helps end users quickly get vital inputs on suitable financial products, but also helps banks market and sell the most appropriate products to users. These AI-based applications can integrate with a user's online bank accounts, debit and credit cards, and e-wallets to track their expenses, present advice on better expense management practices, and help them choose more suitable financial products that sit well with their financial habits, liquidity requirements, and short-term saving goals. With all these information inputs and highly sophisticated algorithms, these AI models are able to make investment decisions very quickly. Very soon, financial services will recognize the dire need to adopt AI applications to deliver sophisticated, personalized, and highly secure services to clients.
