There's a reason we don't know much about AI

#artificialintelligence

Last year, when the Food and Drug Administration approved an Apple Watch feature that notified users if they had an irregular heart rhythm, the information tech industry hailed it as a watershed moment in consumer-focused health care. Cardiologists, on the other hand, warned that the app could lead to privacy violations, unwarranted worrying and wasteful or even dangerous medical care. It might have been good to have an authoritative assessment of the new technology's pros and cons. But in the United States, at least, that no longer happens. In Britain, France and the European Union, government agencies examine the ethical, social and economic impact of artificial intelligence and other big new technologies used in health care and elsewhere.


What a little more computing power can do

#artificialintelligence

Neural networks have given researchers a powerful tool for looking into the future and making predictions. But one drawback is their insatiable need for data and computing power ("compute") to process all that information. At MIT, demand for compute is estimated to be five times greater than what the Institute can offer. To help ease the crunch, industry has stepped in. An $11.6 million supercomputer recently donated by IBM comes online this fall, and in the past year, both IBM and Google have provided cloud credits to MIT Quest for Intelligence for distribution across campus.

But do you know how to leverage AI within your SEO strategy? Let's see what holds the future of SEO and how it impacts industries. AI is developing at a steady pace and the impact of it is visible in all industries. It has been popular particularly last year when industries really saw the potential of artificial intelligence. The general opinion switched when it comes to AI – while everyone used to think that AI will take away jobs from people, now they realize that it will rather complement the jobs and make them more interesting.


Brain computers only rich can afford to 'create new superior human species'

#artificialintelligence

And when they arrive, they will change our society forever. Technology to connect our brains directly to the internet already exists in various labs around the world, and the first primitive steps towards full connection between humanity and electronics are already in use. In 2012, US TV show 60 Minutes showed a paralysed woman named Jan Scheuermann feeding herself a bar of chocolate using a robotic arm controlled by her brain. That same brain sensor was shown to be just as capable of controlling an F-35 stealth fighter. Professor Chris Toumazou, Regius Professor of Engineering, Chair in Biomedical Circuit Design at Imperial University, says it's impossible to guess what the applications of brain-to-computer interfaces might be.


What Is Artificial Intelligence? Crash Course AI #1

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is everywhere and it's already making a huge impact on our lives. It's autocompleting texts on our cellphones, telling us which videos to watch on YouTube, beating us at video games, recognizing us in photos, ordering products in stores, driving cars, scheduling appointments, you get the idea. Today we're going to explain what AI can (and can't) do right now and explain how we got to where we are today. Crash Course is produced in association with PBS Digital studios.

12 Examples of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

While examples of artificial intelligence are numerous across business, AI is still often perceived to be a nascent, still emerging force. In fact, AI is widely deployed. It is critical to the tech platforms of many businesses, across finance and retail and healthcare and media. AI and deep learning examples are so myriad, in fact, that choosing the representative AI example below was a matter of picking among the excess. While the examples of AI below are very different from one another, they all share one common trait: the more data they are fed, the more they learn.


Using emerging technologies for better CX

#artificialintelligence

Emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and speech recognition, are changing experiences. For better or worse, these technologies have arrived, and customer expectations are rising because of them. Starcom's Future of Connected Living research project, which took existing homes and transformed them into connected smart homes over a period of six weeks earlier this year, observed the resulting changes to behaviour of the inhabitants. It saw consumer expectations rise exponentially when living in a connected home. And like it or not, emerging tech will only increase customer expectations for better experiences from here.

Microsoft Unboxed: AI and Infrastructure (Ep. 32)

#artificialintelligence

This week on Microsoft Unboxed, our hosts Sonia and Colleen share stories of how companies are using AI in infrastructure – from roads to the bridges we drive on. First, Colleen shares a story from Denmark where AI-enabled drones are monitoring the Great Belt Bridge. Colleen explains why bridges need to be monitored due to the wear and tear over time to prevent cracks forming that may make them unsafe for driving. The monitoring has traditionally been done manually – but this is where AI comes in. Holding company Sund and Bælt partnered with Microsoft to implement a new technique that uses drones and thousands of images of the bridge to be analyzed by AI technology for cracks and safety issues.
