How AI-Driven Search Could Bring Us Closer to the Intelligent Workplace


What is new is the ability to scale human to machine conversations -- once the realm only of humans -- where the machine provides relevant answers to specific questions at an individual context. AI-enabled search promises to transform the way people interact with information and digital assets, driving new efficiencies and creating value from information that has been all but lost in the "digital junk drawers" that are our corporate information management systems. Knowledge engineering helps businesses realize the promise of AI on enterprise search, information access and knowledge management, and allows us to progress toward establishing an intelligent workplace. The marketing for Amazon's Echo promises users can search for a large scope of topics via the chat interface, Alexa.

Google DeepMind AI Declares Galactic War on StarCraft


DeepMind and Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind StarCraft, just released the tools to let AI researchers create bots capable of competing in a galactic war against humans. "From a scientific point of view, the properties of StarCraft are very much like the properties of real life," says David Churchill, a professor at Memorial University of Newfoundland who advised DeepMind on its StarCraft tools who has organized a leading StarCraft bot competition. Google's AlphaGo Trounces Humans--But It Also Gives Them a Boost How Google's AI Viewed the Move No Human Could Understand In chess and Go, you can see all your opponent's moves and pieces, making them so-called perfect information games. And simply pointing current machine-learning algorithms at the new tranches of past games to copy humans won't be enough.

Approval processes eliminate ambiguity, making knowledge items more accurate and minimizing any reopening of closed tickets. When it comes to creating a knowledge management (KM) system as a key resource in your organization, a knowledge management team certainly has its advantages. Reports from your help desk application on ticket response and resolution times, as well as reopen rates, show you the statistics required to improve your knowledge management system. After you've built your knowledge base and have a good knowledge management system running, sit back and reap the benefits.

Instagram photos reveal predictive markers of depression


Instagram posts made by individuals diagnosed with depression can be reliably distinguished from posts made by healthy controls, using only measures extracted computationally from posted photos and associated metadata. In studies associating mood, color, and mental health, healthy individuals identified darker, grayer colors with negative mood, and generally preferred brighter, more vivid colors [16–19]. Instagram posts made by depressed individuals prior to the date of first clinical diagnosis can be reliably distinguished from posts made by healthy controls. The authors analyzed 118 studies that evaluated general practitioners' abilities to correctly diagnose depression in their patients, without assistance from scales, questionnaires, or other measurement instruments.

Andrew Ng's Next Project Takes Aim at the Deep Learning Skills Gap

WIRED is home to a series of online courses Ng says will help spread the benefits of recent advances in machine learning far beyond big tech companies such as Google and Baidu. His prominence comes from work on deep learning at Stanford and Google's X Labs that helped prove machine learning could do transformational things for businesses. Now there aren't enough people with machine learning skills to go around. More than 100,000 people have started a deep learning course offered by, a startup focused on widening use of AI.

Opinion Artificial Intelligence Is Stuck. Here's How to Move It Forward.


Artificial Intelligence is colossally hyped these days, but the dirty little secret is that it still has a long, long way to go. Computers that can educate themselves -- a mark of true intelligence -- remain a dream. Even the trendy technique of "deep learning," which uses artificial neural networks to discern complex statistical correlations in huge amounts of data, often comes up short.

Will Computers Replace Lawyers? – ROSS' #LegalTech Corner


In the first of the three leading-edge sessions on artificial intelligence at this year's ILTACon, folks will be hearing from Martin Tully, Co-Chair, of Akerman LLP's Data Law Practice, and Samuel Whitman, Mayer Brown's Knowledge Management Leader (see below for speaker bios). Samuel Whitman is Mayer Brown's Knowledge Management Leader and is a member of the Firm's working group on artificial intelligence. Samuel's extensive experience includes working with Professional Support Lawyers, partners and other Firm leaders to develop standard forms, implement document automation, create matter process pathways, configure electronic closing binders and raise awareness among lawyers of KM's best practices and policies. After law school, Samuel became a Project Finance Associate in White & Case's London office and later joined White & Case's Knowledge Management team in New York.

Commentary: Managing disruption in the digital age


Manufacturing was increasingly displaced from advanced economies and redeployed to developing ones. Companies gave workers increments to recognise increasing years of service and long experience gave workers and business leaders' judgement, tacit knowledge and networks which were competitive advantages that were impossible to substitute. However, the lack of predictability and the speed of change means that developing economies have a small window, possibly 10 to 20 years, of opportunity to leapfrog or risk being alienated from the digital economy. To succeed in the digital age means synchronising the speeds of change and response.

I Sink, Therefore I Am: This Robot Wasn't Programmed For Existential Angst


A Knightscope K5 security robot roamed the Prudential Center in Boston in May. A Knightscope K5 security robot roamed the Prudential Center in Boston in May. Some of the best minds of our times, including Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk, have warned that human beings may invent intelligent machines that could wind up destroying humankind. A Knightscope K5 security robot that patrolled an office complex along the Georgetown waterfront in Washington, D.C., rolled itself into a shallow fountain on Monday -- and drowned.
