Elon Musk's dreams of merging AI and brains are likely to remain just that -- for at least a decade


Elon Musk wants to fix disability, replace language as we know it, and use brain implants to usher us into a telepathic world. And he wants the first part of this to be done in the next four years. All of this could theoretically work, experts say. But probably not on the timeline that Musk has set.

Mark Zuckerberg's 'Jarvis' Addresses AI's Biggest Challenges


If you have seen the movie'Iron Man', you might remember Tony Stark's home computing system J.A.R.V.I.S; an artificially intelligent home computing system that took care of everything from the home's heating and cooling systems to Stark's hot rod in the garage. It looked pretty great on screen, but unlike to AI technologies today, Stark's AI assistant:

Misconceptions about IoT Systems and Artificial Intelligence


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become the latest buzzword in the IT industry. Everything from the dishwasher and fridge to TVs and cars has become connected due to the Internet of Things (IoT), and with AI, many think that these products are going to think like human beings.

How can machine learning create features in human-understandable ways?


Without loads of data, we have problems that not even the most intelligent machine learning systems can solve. Simple directions become extremely difficult without a destination. Navigating and processing a healthcare claim is impossible without a payer identified. Finding the best vet for a pet is difficult without knowing the species.

5 Artificial Intelligence and Data Predictions for 2017
