Nick Kohlschreiber - Media Expert and Adboom on Artificial Intelligence


A recent article in Business Insider suggests that artificial intelligence transforms marketing by changing how consumers are discovered, connected to, and communicated with. According to Nick Kohlschreiber, AI is far superior to in-house data scientists and their old-school methods of prediction. A recent article in Forbes suggests that in addition to personalization of marketing based on superior data collection and analysis, AI can help create content, answer questions (think Siri), and even improve team performance. With the use of technology, including artificial intelligence, Kohlschreiber helps companies grow organically by driving brand awareness.

Qualcomm outline AI research roadmap


Qualcomm's initial AI efforts, before the smart device boom was in full swing, initially focused on motion control and computer vision applications, fields inspired by biological counterparts. Qualcomm's efforts will focus on the end devices, including smart devices, robotics, and automobiles. While AI processing within the cloud plays a necessary role, improving capabilities on end devices provides a number of benefits, including faster response time, accessibility when internet connectivity isn't available, improved privacy, and less network use. A focus on network efficiency means Qualcomm will use AI to reduce the bandwidth companies use, and it comes at a time when the Internet of Things and ever-increasing cloud capabilities will demand more and more bandwidth.

Q&A: How artificial intelligence is changing the nature of cybersecurity


Businesses ranging from startups to large corporations are increasingly looking to new technologies, like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, to protect their consumers. AI can provide an effective way to stop advanced and sophisticated malware attacks that have never been seen before. There's also a real opportunity for advanced phishing attacks by automating the human bad guy. Prepare is about building a proper cybersecurity program taking a risk based and business approach to security.

How can Apple and autonomous systems help you?


The Internet of Things (IoT) means we already have millions of connected devices. Wikipedia tells us an autonomous system relates to the complex network of networks that comprise the internet. These autonomous machines must be able to achieve all of this in real time, on real roads, no matter what random events may take place on those roads. But the things it doesn't do will be an opportunity for eagle-eyed entrepreneurs seeking a smart, highly secure, fragmentation-free market-trusted platform upon which to build autonomous systems for profitable verticals.

What is big data's role in the fourth industrial revolution?


We stand at the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution, an idea that will see new breakthroughs thanks to advancements in areas including artificial intelligence, robotics, quantum computing, 3D printing and the Internet of Things. Others look at it as an equation in which artificial intelligence plus big data equals the fourth industrial revolution. Companies that invest in all three areas -- AI, IoT and big data -- stand a good chance at becoming leaders and innovators in the fourth industrial revolution. Another sunnier vision of the future suggests big data, machine learning and AI could create a society in which everyone lives in luxury.

IoT weekly round-up: Thursday 17th August 2017 - Internet of Things Blog


This week, customers in Canada and the U.S. can use Google Home to make phone calls, Microsoft's been testing autonomous gliders, and machine learning could help unearth new species of plant life from among centuries of unclassified data. Good news for telephone bill payers in the U.S. and Canada – as of this week, you can now make free phone calls through Google Home. The gliders need very little power, can track upward hot air currents and even predict where they're going to go next, enabling them to adjust their position to stay airborne as long as possible. The record so far is over five hours – showing that the gliders are reasonably adept at dealing with uncertainty, and making accurate predictions as to the location of the next hot air current.

A.I. Business Applications (and How It May Impact You)


Technology companies of all sizes and in locations all around the world are developing AI-driven products aimed at reducing operating costs, improving decision-making and enhancing consumer services across a range of client industries. The sum of these drivers -- new programming techniques, more data and faster chips -- has seen AI converge with human-level performance in the key areas of image classification and speech recognition over recent years (see EXHIBIT 2). Chipmakers stand to benefit from increased demand for processing power, particularly makers of graphical processing units for AI program training. And internet companies with AI at the core of their consumer services (such as digital assistants and new software features) stand to benefit directly from improvements in speech recognition and image classification.

Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom on Free Speech, Artificial Intelligence, and Internet Addiction.


It was a long conversation, but here is a 20-minute overview in which Systrom talks about the artificial intelligence Instagram has been developing to filter out toxic comments before you even see them. NT: These are the comments: "Succ," "Succ," "Succ me," "Succ," "Can you make Instagram have auto-scroll feature? And what we realized was there was this giant wave of machine learning and artificial intelligence--and Facebook had developed this thing that basically--it's called deep text NT: Which launches in June of 2016, so it's right there. And then you say, "Okay, machine, go and rate these comments for us based on the training set," and then we see how well it does and we tweak it over time, and now we're at a point where basically this machine learning can detect a bad comment or a mean comment with amazing accuracy--basically a 1 percent false positive rate.

Inside Industry 4.0: What's Driving The Fourth Industrial Revolution? Big Cloud Recruitment


The term Industry 4.0 refers to the fourth industrial revolution and is comprised of growing trends in automation, the internet of things, big data and cloud computing technologies. The sensors in networked physical connected devices collect data in real time that is valuable to businesses and can help optimise manufacturing processes. Using advanced analytics, Big Data is transformed into meaningful information to meet business objectives. Smart machines like expert systems, digital assistants and autonomous devices are changing manufacturing processes.
