MIT plans $1B computing college, AI research effort

#artificialintelligence

MIT's move signals two trends in higher education: growing investment in sophisticated technology research and increased fundraising from the private sector. Last year, the university announced plans to partner with IBM on a 10-year, $240 million AI research effort. The resulting MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab is co-located with an IBM research facility in Boston and brings together faculty members and students as well as IBM and university researchers to enhance AI's impact across industries. More recently, IBM partnered with Columbia University to develop research competency in blockchain technology through the Columbia-IBM Center for Blockchain and Data Transparency. Public institutions are nabbing corporate funding, too.


Towards AI Transparency: Four Pillars Required to Build Trust in Artificial Intelligence Systems

#artificialintelligence

Trust is a foundational building block of human socio-economic dynamics. In software development, during the last few decades, we steadily built mechanisms for asserting trust on specific applications. When we get on planes that fly on auto-pilot or cars completely driven by robots we are intrinsically expressing trust on the creators of a specific software application. In software, trust mechanisms are fundamentally based on the deterministic nature of most software applications in which their behavior is uniquely determine by the code workflow which makes it intrinsically predictable. Recently, researchers from IBM proposed a new methodology for establishing trust in AI systems.


IBM Introduces AI OpenScale to Spur Artificial Intelligence Adoption and Transparency

#artificialintelligence

IBM today introduced AI OpenScale, a new technology platform that addresses key challenges of artificial intelligence (AI) adoption, such as concerns over how AI applications make decisions, the global shortage of AI skills and the complexities of working with disparate AI tools from multiple vendors. IBM's new technology platform is the first of its kind. It will enable companies to manage AI transparently throughout the full AI lifecycle, irrespective of where their AI applications were built or in which environment they currently run. AI OpenScale can detect and address bias across the spectrum of AI applications, as those applications are being run. As part of AI OpenScale, IBM also will debut NeuNetS, a major scientific breakthrough in which AI builds AI – making it possible to create complex, deep-neural networks from scratch.

AI will impact 100% of jobs, professions, and industries, says IBM's Ginni Rometty

#artificialintelligence

Businesses have entered the most rapid period of technological change in history, and artificial intelligence (AI) is on the cusp of revolutionizing the entire workforce, Ginni Rometty, chairman, president, and CEO of IBM, said in a keynote address at the 2018 Gartner Symposium/IT Expo in Orlando on Tuesday. "The pace is unabated," Rometty said. "You have to change the way you work, because this isn't going to stop." AI has become one of the great, meaningless buzzwords of our time. In this video, the Chief Data Scientist of Dun and Bradstreet explains AI in clear business terms.


How To Boost An Organization's Competitive Advantage By Using Cognitive Computing

#artificialintelligence

Between AI-powered chatbots and gadget-based voice assistants, cognitive computing capabilities have captured the public imagination. But consumer products are just the tip of the iceberg. Under the surface, cognitive computing adoption in the business world is growing rapidly. In fact, IDC predicts that global spending on cognitive systems will grow to more than $31 billion by 2019. And within the next two years alone, half of all consumers are expected to interact with cognitive technology on a regular basis, even if they don't realize it.


IBM sees cognitive solutions, tech services and cloud platform revenue declines

ZDNet

IBM's third quarter revenue missed expectations as its cognitive solutions and technology services and cloud platforms units saw declines from a year ago. Big Blue reported earnings of $2.94 a share on revenue of $18.8 billion, down 2 percent from a year ago. Non-GAAP earnings were $3.42 a share. Wall Street was expecting IBM to report third quarter earnings of $3.40 a share on revenue of $19.1 billion. IBM has been heavily focused on growing artificial intelligence as a business.
