If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …

The development of problem solvers for configuration tasks is one of the most successful and mature application areas of artificial intelligence. The provision of tailored products, services, and systems requires efficient engineering and design processes where configurators play a crucial role. For more than 25 years the application of constraint-based methods has proven to be a key technology in order to realize configurators at Siemens. This article summarizes the main aspects and insights we have gained looking back over this period.
How can you get a job at Google or Facebook? Probably the most useful thing might be to study algorithms. Not memorize them, except possibly a few pf the most common ones, but to read them through and make sure you understand them. Go and read about major data structures, and understand when each one is appropriate. Implement a few, like a linked list, a heap, a hash table, a binary tree.
The incredible moment a man solves a Rubik's cube in less than FIVE SECONDS to set a new world record (as the previous champion sits next to him and grins through gritted teeth) Feliks Zemdegs, 20, solved the famous 1980s toy in just 4.73 seconds Previous world record set by Mats Valk, 20, who is sitting next to Mr Zemdegs Mr Zemdegs got ten seconds to inspect the Rubik's cube before he has to solve it Feliks Zemdegs, 20, solved the famous 1980s toy in just 4.73 seconds Mr Zemdegs got ten seconds to inspect the Rubik's cube before he has to solve it His hands move so fast the camera struggles to pick up his finger movements. He solves the puzzle in just 4.73 seconds. The horse (and dog) whisperer: Spanish equestrian artist who... Well, that's embarrassing! The horse (and dog) whisperer: Spanish equestrian artist who...

Researchers are developing an app which could help to prevent suicides by flagging those most at risk. Using a computer algorithm, it records conversations, analysing what people say and how they speak. By picking up on a range of subtle verbal and non-verbal cues, it can correctly classify if someone is suicidal with 93 per cent accuracy. At the heart of the app is a machine learning algorithm which classifies the person based on their responses. In an earlier study, researchers enrolled a mix of 379 patients, who were suicidal, diagnosed as mentally ill, or neither.
The Rubik's cube was devised by Hungarian architect Erno Rubik more than 30 years ago, but he likely never envisioned his puzzle being cracked this quickly. A robot has this week solved a Rubik's cube in 0.637 seconds, at the Electronica Trade Fair in Munich, Germany. The machine, known as'Sub1 Reloaded' and developed by German tech company Infineon, was aided by one of the world's most powerful microcomputers. The machine, known as'Sub1 Reloaded' and developed by German tech company Infineon, was aided by one of the world's most powerful microcomputers The robot took a fraction of a second to analyse the cube and make 21 moves to solve the puzzle. Its time of 0.637 seconds beat the previous world record of 0.887 seconds, set by an earlier prototype of the same machine.
The shape of multicoloured three-dimensional puzzle Rubik's Cube is not a trademark, the European Court of Justice has ruled. It means the shape of the cube alone is not enough to protect it from being copied. UK company Seven Towns, which manages Rubik's Cube's intellectual property rights, registered its shape as a trademark in in the 1990s. But German firm Simba Toys challenged the trademark protection in 2006. The European Court of Justice (ECJ) agreed that the cube's ability to rotate should be protected by a patent and not a trademark.
As the world economy shifts away from manufacturing jobs and towards service industry and creative jobs, there's a consensus among parents, educators, politicians and business leaders that it is crucial students graduate into university or the workforce with the ability to identify and solve complex problems, think critically about information, work effectively in teams and communicate clearly about their thinking. While many teachers agree with this premise, they don't often know exactly how to teach these skills explicitly, especially because many of the mandates and required curriculum seem to push in the opposite direction. Process-oriented skills are hard to pin down; teachers can see them in certain students, but developing these competencies in students who aren't already demonstrating them can be tricky. A few teachers in Ontario, Canada have been experimenting with tools they think could make the difference. Jason Watt has always had very high expectations for his students, whether they were seven-year-olds in grade two or the young adolescents he now teaches in grade seven at Norseman Junior Middle School.
The easy answer is that excel is a resource hog & despite being a tremendously powerful tool for mining small datasets, when you start to push past the traditional 65565 rows, you start to move into realms where Microsoft is traditionally not good (memory handling, i/o management, efficient processing). First a few questions: 1. Cardinality: Were both tables internally unique? Excel bogs down on cartesian products in my experience -- you need one to many or one to one matches. Am assuming you ran a pivot table on both counting the unique instances of each email address, comparing the row count in the table with the grand total (both should be the same). Am assuming that this answer is going to be yes across the board, since you're probably a really good excel jockey.
ASP has been applied fruitfully to a wide range of areas in AI and in other fields, both in academia and in industry, thanks to the expressive representation languages of ASP and the continuous improvement of ASP solvers. We present some of these ASP applications, in particular, in knowledge representation and reasoning, robotics, bioinformatics and computational biology as well as some industrial applications. We discuss the challenges addressed by ASP in these applications and emphasize the strengths of ASP as a useful AI paradigm.
