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) …

Let's dive into the Automation World! The potential for low-code/no-code platforms is enormous.
Microsoft's chief technology officer, Kevin Scott, is humming Mozart's "Sonata facile," a melody that he recalls hearing in "Looney Tunes" cartoons. A computer could easily learn to play it, he says, but such a rendition probably wouldn't elicit an emotional response from a listener. "It's not about the notes; it's about this connection…with the audience," he says. "I don't know if that's going to be possible with a machine." For better or worse the robots are going to replace many humans in their jobs, analysts say, and the coronavirus outbreak is speeding up the process. "People usually say they want a human element to their interactions but Covid-19 has changed that," says Martin Ford, a futurist who has written about the ways robots will be integrated into the economy in the coming decades.
It's time for big business to embrace the public chain – as a coordination tool, rather than as a place to carry out large-scale financial transactions. The group has come up with a new way of using the public ethereum mainnet to connect firms' internal systems for resource planning. Generative adversarial networks (GANs) -- two-part AI models consisting of a generator that creates samples and a discriminator that attempts to differentiate between the generated samples and real-world samples -- have been applied to tasks ranging from video, artwork, and music synthesis to drug discovery and misleading media detection. They've also made their way into ecommerce, as Amazon revealed in a blog post this morning. Frontline healthcare employees -- nurses, call center agents, among others -- have one of the toughest jobs in America.
At the offices of startup Vicarious in Union City, where the San Francisco Bay Area's sprawl abuts rolling hills, 10 robot arms tirelessly place travel-sized beauty products into bins on a conveyor belt. Each gray arm ends in a suction-cup-tipped finger that makes a high-pitched whine as it plucks items such as antiperspirant or hand lotion from crowded boxes. Google Cloud today announced the beta launch of Cloud AI Platform Pipelines, a new enterprise-grade service that is meant to give developers a single tool to deploy their machine learning pipelines, together with tools for monitoring and auditing them. "When you're just prototyping a machine learning (ML) model in a notebook, it can seem fairly straightforward," Google notes in today's announcement. "But when you need to start paying attention to the other pieces required to make an ML workflow sustainable and scalable, things become more complex."
Oracle recently announced the availability of Cloud Data Science PlatformAccording to Oracle, the key differentiating factor for its data science platform is team collaboration features and tight integration with a variety of data sources available in OCI. According to Oracle, the key differentiating factor for its data science platform is team collaboration features and tight integration with a variety of data sources available in OCI. Being a cybersecurity analyst at a large company today is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack -- if that haystack were hurtling toward you at fiber optic speed. Every day, employees and customers generate loads of data that establish a normal set of behaviors. An attacker will also generate data while using any number of techniques to infiltrate the system; the goal is to find that "needle" and stop it before it does any damage.
The German government is facing a bill of around $887,000 (800,000 euros) for failing to upgrade to Windows 10 ahead of the Windows 7 end of support date last week. German newspaper Handelsblatt reports that the German Federal Ministry is looking to secure at least 33,000 machines still running Windows 7, which involves paying Microsoft a fee per device for a year of extended security protection. Lego is releasing an official International Space Station kit, which includes a scale model of the orbital platform, along with a miniature dockable Space Shuttle, a deployable satellite and two astronaut mini figurines. The kit is made up of 864 pieces, and celebrates the science station's more than 20 years in operation. It was originally suggested through Lego's Ideas platform, which crowdsources ideas from the Lego fan community.
Sony is the latest company to dip its toes into AI-powered music. The company revealed this week that its researchers have created a machine learning model that can create kick-drum tracking. MIT computer scientists are hoping to accelerate the use of artificial intelligence to improve medical decision-making, by automating a key step that's usually done by hand -- and that's becoming more laborious as certain datasets grow ever-larger. What's the point of teaching a computer how to knit? MIT researchers found it goes beyond just some nice gloves and scarves, to a window into deep learning forms of artificial intelligence.
