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 primary thrust among global commentators last week was on dissecting and analysing the State of the Union address delivered by President Donald Trump. He tried to reach out to an American public exhausted by divisive politics and a waning faith in the American dream. The general sense was that it was a half-hearted call for unity. The focus of this column is on a global disruption in technology that is having a major impact on national and international security thinking, the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the 21st Century.

What comes to your mind if you think of Artificial Intelligence? In the public perception, Artificial Intelligence is a future where machines have outstripped humans. Artificial intelligence is no longer an idea of the future. But what should you know if you want to invest in artificial intelligence?
A government-sponsored review into the potential impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the UK economy is urging a comprehensive programme of support for the discipline. Every conference this year contains a dead human genius reincarnated as software system or a robot. Yes, there is a lot of hype, but there is real worth in AI and Machine Learning.

AI nano-machines injected into our brains and other parts of our bodies could a new generation of cyborgs within 20 years. That's according to a senior inventor at IBM's Hursley Innovation Centre who claims, in two decades, humans will have superhuman strength and be able to control gadgets using the power of thought. Speaking to the House of Lords Artificial Intelligence Committee, John McNamara, said the technology create a new generation of humans that are'melded' to machines, AI nano-machines could bring huge medical benefits such as repairing damage to cells, muscles and bones. This could mean we can embed ourselves into our surroundings and'control our environment with thought and gesture alone'. 'Political Avatars' could search through vast quantities of governmental data and tell people how they should vote.
Number of companies: As of June 31, 2017, there were 2,542 AI companies worldwide, of which 41%, or 1,078, were located in the U.S. However, the difference between the U.S. and China – 486 companies – is huge. Capital investment: Based on existing data, U.S. – based AI companies have raised a total of 97.8 billion RMB (50.1% of global AI investment) compared to China-based companies that have raised 63.5 billion RMB (33.2% of global AI investment) Human capital: China has 39,200 AI specialists compared to the U.S.' 78,700. Training and retaining talent has become a critical impediment to the development of China's AI industry. Number of investment firms: The U.S. has three times the number of AI investment firms as China does.
For designers, that represents a major business opportunity. But AI is also a challenge requiring every strength and skill they've learned and many they haven't. They will have to understand sociology, psychology, and biology. They will have to develop a working knowledge of statistics. Creativity and attention to detail–designers' stock in trade–won't be enough.
Today's artificial intelligence industry is not easy to quantify. Besides the lack of consensus on a coherent definition for "artificial intelligence" as a term, the field's nascent stage of development makes it difficult to carve out silos or hard barriers of where one industry or application ends, and another begins. In one of our more popular recent articles, we aimed to derive a valuation of the artificial intelligence market, based on current market research and our own insights. In this week's article, I've set out to determine more of a "lay of the land" of the AI industry, including it's various segments and application areas. If you're interested in how developments in machine learning and AI might impact your own company or business, then keeping an eye on trends in industry and application growth is pertinent.
Artificial intelligence is a $15 billion dollar industry and growing. With more than 2,600 companies developing intelligent technology, the value of AI is expected to rise to more than $70 billion by 2020. And it's not just attracting the tech giants: USAA is using AI to protect its users from identity theft, and Under Armour has connected its health app, MyFitnessPal, to IBM Watson so users can get a more thorough read of their health. For designers, that represents a major business opportunity. But AI is also a challenge requiring every strength and skill they've learned and many they haven't.
