Why it's time for CIOs to invest in machine learning

#artificialintelligence

To Olley, machine learning fills a gap in technology that has existed for a long time: solving complex problems with pattern recognition. "With the majority of Elsevier's revenue coming from technology-based products and services, we started using machine learning in our commercial products, but it's equally applicable to internal IT platforms," Olley says. As part of the executive teams within RBI and Elsevier, Dan continues to drive organic online product growth across the portfolio. Prior to RELX Group, Dan held technology and product management leadership roles with GM Financial, Wunderman Cato Johnson, and IBM, as well as a number of software organizations in the United Kingdom and other international locales.


AI - Will jobs disappear as technology takes over our work?

#artificialintelligence

A McKinsey Global Institute report last year looked at the automation of the global economy. It also said that based on current technologies, 60 percent of all jobs have at least 30 percent of their activities that are technically automatable. The research found that, ultimately, automation technologies could affect 49 percent of the world economy; 1.1bn employees and $12.7trn in wages. The World Economic Forum's study into The Future of Jobs last year saw an increasingly dynamic jobs landscape.

The grid connects computers in more than 40 countries from more than 170 research facilities, and works like a power grid to some extent, providing computing resources to facilities based on demand. This presents a unique cybersecurity challenge: keeping the massive globally-distributed grid secure while maintaining the computing power and storage unimpeded. Machine learning can train a system to detect potential threats while retaining the flexibility that it needs to provide computing power and storage on demand. If they work well protecting just the part of the grid that ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) uses, the team can deploy AI cybersecurity measures throughout the system.

Artificial Intelligence Smart Assistants: The Next Big Thing in Computing?

#artificialintelligence

The promise of these assistants, ranging from Apple's Siri and Google's Assistant to the newcomer, Samsung's Bixby, is that someday we will each have our own personal, always-listening AI which can respond to any wish and command, like Tony Stark's Jarvis in the movie Iron Man. Let's take a closer look at today's AI-powered assistants, their strengths and weaknesses, current use cases, app integration, and how they play into the plans of the biggest companies in tech. These two advantages make Google's Assistant superior for what is now the most common use case for smart assistants: answering basic questions. Here's a chart from a recent Business Insider article that compares smart assistants' performance: The results are striking: Google Assistant much more accurate than Siri, answering questions correctly 90.6% of the time as compared with Siri's 62.2%.


Beware the Hype of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Michael Jordan, a machine learning expert and computer science professor at University of California, Berkeley, said there is "way too much hype" regarding the capabilities of so-called chat bots. Many of these software programs use an AI technique called deep learning in which they are "trained" on massive amounts of conversation data so that they learn to interact with people. But while everyone talks about ImageNet's success, "we hardly talk about the failures," she said, underscoring the hard work researchers have building powerful computers that can "see" like humans. What will help usher more breakthroughs in deep learning will be the continuing advancements in powerful computing hardware, like Nvidia's GPUs that make it possible to crunch tremendous amounts of data faster than ever, explained Ilya Sutskever, the research director of Elon Musk-backed AI research group OpenAI.

As noted in Forrester's 2016 Internet of Things Heat Map, "Because of the enormous range of sensors, customer scenarios, and business cases, the technologies for IoT sensor devices, radios, network protocols, software protocols, and data formats are very diverse. The cloud's role then becomes synergistic as opposed to directive: Its economy of scale can be directed to build and refine machine learning models on massive data sets, thereby further augmenting intelligence, which can further be acted on at the edge.

Inside Microsoft's AI Comeback

#artificialintelligence

But while his peer scientists Yann LeCun and Geoffrey Hinton have signed on to Facebook and Google, respectively, Bengio, 53, has chosen to continue working from his small third-floor office on the hilltop campus of the University of Montreal. Shum, who is in charge of all of AI and research at Microsoft, has just finished a dress rehearsal for next week's Build developers conference, and he wants to show me demos. Shum has spent the past several years helping his boss, CEO Satya Nadella, make good on his promise to remake Microsoft around artificial intelligence. Bill Gates showed off a mapping technology in 1998, for example, but it never came to market; Google launched Maps in 2005.


The Future of Big Data and IoT Technology - Malc0de

#artificialintelligence

One step toward sustainable IoT adoption is when companies leverage The Cloud for future computing needs. As IoT continues to develop there will stay constant changes in how companies use The Cloud and how they leverage big data techniques to understand the unlimited data generated by IoT devices. This can be especially important as IoT technology continues to broaden from smart personal devices and begins to creep into autonomous cars and even smart cities. The advancements in big data processing and IoT technology has allowed connected devices to build beyond mere personal devices.
