Meet the 13-year-old prodigy taking IBM and artificial intelligence by storm - Watson

#artificialintelligence

Read the full ABC article and watch the video interview to learn more about Tanmay and his work in the field of AI. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) recently profiled 13-year-old Canadian tech prodigy Tanmay Bakshi who started using computers at age five, launched his first app at age nine, and has been working with IBM's AI and cognitive APIs for a couple of years now. Tanmay is in a different league from the average pre-teen. In 2013, at age nine, he built "tTables," an app to help kids learn multiplication which Apple's App Store accepted after rejecting it three times. An incredible achievement for a child who loves to code but is largely self-taught.


How chatbots can help reduce customer service costs by 30%

#artificialintelligence

Key Points: – Businesses spend $1.3 trillion on 265 billion customer service calls each year – Chatbots can help businesses save on customer service costs by speeding up response times, freeing up agents for more challenging work, and answering up to 80% of routine questions – Learn how you can increase productivity and performance at your call centers by seamlessly integrating chatbots and live agents It's 3 AM on a Monday. Maria, a product design engineer, is preparing her presentation of a new ergonomic adjustable standing desk. The weekend flew by, and now it's crunch time to finalize the presentation. Maria opens the product design application, and starts the login process and the application requests an activation code. Maria frantically looks for the code in her email and cloud storage, but to no avail.


IBM's Watson is key to new artificial intelligence-powered ETF

#artificialintelligence

As if active portfolio managers didn't have enough challenges from computer-driven passive investing strategies, now machines are directly horning in on their territory. San Francisco-based EquBot LLC is launching the first ever exchange-traded fund to use artificial intelligence, according to a company statement on Tuesday. Employing International Business Machines Corp.'s Watson platform, the AI Powered Equity ETF, ticker AIEQ, will attempt to mimic an army of equity research analysts working around the clock, according to Art Amador, co-founder of EquBot. "There has been an explosion of information," Amador said by phone. "AI provides a more informed way of investing."


The Science in Your Science Fiction: Artificial Intelligence - DIY MFA

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI), like time travel, is a perennial subject for writers of science fiction. And, like time travel, AI is subject to a number of misunderstandings which can make writing a story in that setting, on that subject, using it as a McGuffin, or as a character, problematic. With movies like Blade Runner 2049, Ex Machina, and Her keeping AI in our geeky gestalt, writers will continue to tackle the topic. A little research might spark a new, or more realistic, take on the AI tale, though. The first thing to understand is that true AI, a machine that is self-aware and thinks independently, is the stuff of science fiction.

Inside IBM's Bold Vision For AI: 7 Strategic Insights From CEO Ginni Rometty

IBM CEO Ginni Rometty: "Look, we really think this is about man and machine, not man vs. Well, one person who cares very deeply about the rapid emergence of AI is Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella--and if you're wondering about Nadella's chops in AI, consider that as he's boosted Microsoft's market cap by $250 billion during his 3-1/2 years as CEO, he's also created a global AI team of more than 5,000 computer scientists and engineers. And if you're still wondering if AI's just a fad, consider this comment made by Nadella at the same event: "To me, AI can in fact bring more human empowerment, bring more inclusion to that people can fully participate in our community and society." An excellent interview last month with IBM CEO Ginni Rometty by Bloomberg Businessweek under the compelling headline Ginni Rometty: The End of Programming reveals her compelling views on AI and several other subjects.

Artificial intelligence: future or fantasy?

#artificialintelligence

The field of artificial intelligence (AI) was born at a meeting of computer scientists at Dartmouth College in 1956. What does the future hold for artificial intelligence? For example, deep learning works in a similar way to the information categorisation systems of our nervous system, making machines capable of detecting features within an input data set, and using these features to structure subsequent analysis. Google Translate shows similar effects, translating the Turkish gender-neutral pronoun "o" as "he" when paired with "doktor" (doctor), and "she" when paired with "hemşire" (nurse).


Don't Fear The AI Future Of TV, Film

#artificialintelligence

It's not just taking over practical or empirical tasks; creative work like screenwriting and film editing will be part of the AI future too. Bottom line, from the perspective of audience perspective and creator profit, artificial intelligence makes sense. Already, we're seeing how AI can make more interactive viewing experiences, while helping creators personalize content. AI offers the potential to take much of the perspiration out of making TV and film, leaving creators more time to make more compelling shows, more exciting videos, and "stickier" advertising content.


Machine Learning: What Impact Will it Have on Marketing?
