Can a robot be man's best friend?

#artificialintelligence

This problem is becoming even more pronounced as many factory workers retire and millennials are less inclined to work in manufacturing jobs," explains Jim Lawton, chief product officer at Rethink Robotics. Robots working alongside humans could be the answer. We'll see more manufacturers adopting collaborative robots – they will change the way manufacturing is done globally "Repetitive handling processes are simple to automate and are often unhealthy to humans. These processes are the first to be automated," explains Mr Johansen.


Zenith unveils 10 artificial intelligence trends for marketers – Zenith

#artificialintelligence

Using bespoke algorithms, a team of data scientists and strategists from Zenith developed sophisticated machine learning technology that enabled the network to create an'automation loop': data collection, attribution and planning changes across multiple touchpoints – all done automatically. Our 10 trends assess how machine learning and other areas of AI will enhance the consumer experience along the journey to purchase and will create new marketing opportunities for brands. The Passive User Interface continually collects behavioural data from consumers' digital devices and by applying machine learning techniques can provide brands with powerful insights than can be used to customise consumer experiences. Powered by machine learning, chatbots enable automated interaction between consumers and brands via a messaging interface.


5 steps to prepare your company for the AI revolution

#artificialintelligence

The practical benefits of automation are many: fewer data-entry errors, faster customer service response times, workload automation, better resource management, and the ability to turn legacy data into powerful insights. But recent advances in AI and natural language processing have made chatbots more capable of delivering customer service. Open dialogue and healthy conflict resolution will prove essential as employees collaborate on increasingly challenging questions. As AI and other automation technologies mature into transformative products, it's critical your company is working from a well-crafted plan for how to take advantage of the opportunities.


Future Robots In The Workplace Are Coming For Retail Jobs

International Business Times

In addition, the rise of mobile ordering and payment pioneered by Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) which has been adopted by many other chains takes work away from human workers. That, however, won't be the case for every chain, as in many cases robots and automaton will lead to fewer human workers. While the rise of automation and robots won't be immediate or complete, they will eliminate jobs that traditionally went to lower-skilled workers. The Motley Fool recommends CVS Health.


First Global Credit - Do A.I and Cryptocurrency work well together?

#artificialintelligence

We are speaking about the world-altering technology of Artificial Intelligence as the first superpower coupled with the financial system disruptive technology of cryptocurrency -- a decentralised payment system that circumvents government manipulation of currency and is forcing us to redefine the concept of money. Artificial Intelligence (AI) means software that after its initial programming continues to improve its performance based on experience of the environment it has been set to'learn.' So we return to the original question: "can a market as young and volatile as cryptocurrency be successfully partnered with Artificial Intelligence to produce a profitable outcome? This means, there is room while cryptocurrency markets are still in their infancy for AI developers to create systems that learn to identify profit opportunities in these young, highly volatile markets.

Verification And The IoT -Semiconductor Engineering

#artificialintelligence

Semiconductor Engineering sat down to discuss what impact the IoT will have on the design cycle, with Christopher Lawless, director of external customer acceleration in Intel's Software Services Group; David Lacey, design and verification technologist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise; Jim Hogan, managing partner at Vista Ventures; Frank Schirrmeister, senior group director for product management in the System & Verification Group at Cadence. That's where deep learning and machine learning are going to come into play with verification. Schirrmeister: It doesn't have to be that deep in deep learning to find initial things in verification, but you can definitely find things that in the past you could not. If you look at those usages from a validation and test plan perspective and even an architecture perspective, how do we then build something and operate properly within those particular environments.


Artificial intelligence could add '£232BN to UK GDP by 2030'

#artificialintelligence

While we expect that the nature of jobs will change and that some will be susceptible to automation, our research shows that the boost to UK GDP that AI-driven products and services will bring will also generate significant offsetting job gains, as well as boosting average real wage levels." Automating the more mundane and repetitive aspects of people's jobs will also increase the UK's productivity and boost real wages." Euan Cameron, UK Artificial Intelligence leader at PwC, said "The potential size of the AI prize is huge and our research shows it has the potential to transform the productivity and GDP potential of the UK's economy. The potential GDP boost is equivalent to a total of around $10 trillion in these two regions, which account for around two-thirds of the estimated total global economic impact of around $15 trillion.
