The Future of Artificial Intelligence and Cybernetics

#artificialintelligence

For example, if the robot brain has roughly the same number of human neurons as a typical human brain, then could it, or should it, have rights similar to those of a person? Also, if such robots have far more human neurons than in a typical human brain--for example, a million times more neurons--would they, rather than humans, make all future decisions? With those cases, the situation isn't straightforward, as patients receive abilities that normal humans don't have--for example, the ability to move a cursor on a computer screen using nothing but neural signals. It's clear that connecting a human brain with a computer network via an implant could, in the long term, open up the distinct advantages of machine intelligence, communication, and sensing abilities to the individual receiving the implant.


Under the hood of machine learning

#artificialintelligence

It arose within the interesting confluence of emergence of big data, cheap and powerful computational processing, and more efficient data storage. For instance, the machine learning tools must integrate easily with the software platforms that support existing business processes, users, and diverse projects. IT departments find themselves orchestrating data processing tools, data stores, integration, distributed computing primitives, cluster managers and task schedulers, deployment, configuration management, data analytics, and machine learning tools. DC/OS allows enterprises to run relational databases, data warehouses, and big data platforms, and manage enterprise applications and cloud-native applications within the same platform.


Build17 - Azure rising as Microsoft preps Windows Fall

#artificialintelligence

One of the most telling moments, therefore, came when Harry Shum, Executive Vice President, Microsoft AI and Research Group, finished his day one keynote presentation with a demonstration of smart assistant technology from Tact, a startup that Microsoft recently invested in. It's also interesting to note that Tact started out working with Salesforce and was also seen demonstrating its technology at Oracle's recent customer experience show. The Microsoft demonstration showed how Tact connects into the Microsoft Graph API and other services such as LinkedIn and Dynamics 365 to bring information and suggestions to a user via the Cortana voice or messaging interface. In his day two keynote, Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President, Windows and Devices Group emphasized new features in the forthcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators release that will allow users to move from one device to another and continue whatever they were doing without skipping a beat -- across Windows, iOS, Android and AI interfaces.

The first ecommerce fashion and shopping chatbot for Facebook Messenger, ChatShopper asks users about their fashion taste and replies back with the product suggestions. BotMakers is a marketplace that helps chatbot development agencies and indie developers make money from selling Facebook Messenger chatbots templates. Tars automates ordering and booking process, provides users a refreshing new chat interface to provide feedback, lets the bot resolve customers' frequently asked queries, and helps a user understand about your product and services through an engaging conversation. Botsify helps businesses to create Facebook Messenger chatbots without any coding.


Vertical AI Startups: Solving Industry-specific Problems by Combining AI and Subject Matter Expertise

#artificialintelligence

Designing the right product interface requires subject matter expertise, and owning the interface allows you to instrument it and gather proprietary data. Building full-stack products requires deep subject matter expertise. The more AI delivers the product's core value by unlocking a totally new opportunity through rich domain modeling within the vertical and models built on top of proprietary data gathered via the product itself, the more defensible the business. The folks at Sapphire Ventures had a couple of goods posts on why enterprise funds may return more capital than consumer funds, and how enterprise exits come in cohorts, whereas consumer exits are dominated by outliers like Facebook, Snapchat and WhatsApp.


The Rise of Artificial Intelligence: How AI Will Affect UX Design Creative Cloud blog by Adobe

#artificialintelligence

With an unprecedented amount of data being collected and algorithms driving many of our interactions, Clark says the challenge of what to with the data, how to present it, and how to use it to shape user behavior is now inherently a design question for today's user experience designers. "I think the really critical question we're dealing with now in this early stage of artificial intelligence is how do we design the interfaces in ways that set appropriate expectations and channel user behaviors in ways that match the capabilities of the system?" Just as machines can fill in gaps for humans, humans must fill in the gaps that machines aren't able to understand. AI is asking more of designers and Clark encourages designers to begin exploring AI through the various APIs that are available for free online in order to gain a better understanding of both the potential opportunities and obstacles AI presents.


Northern Light Kicks Off Another "Summer of Love" With Announcement of SinglePoint Version 11 With Machine Learning Search Enhancements

#artificialintelligence

To celebrate the anniversary, Northern Light (www.northernlight.com) is unveiling two radical innovations in strategic market research portals that it will begin delivering to customers this summer. The innovations are embedded in SinglePoint version 11, a new release of Northern Light's strategic research platform for competitive intelligence and market research insights used by hundreds of thousands of professionals at global enterprises. Machine learning SinglePoint v11 also features powerful machine learning capabilities for cognitive search based on Google's TensorFlow library of machine learning algorithms that enable the system to automatically synthesize, refine, and present critical information distilled from large collections of market intelligence content within a SinglePoint portal, changing the search process profoundly. About Northern Light Northern Light has been providing strategic research platforms for competitive intelligence and market research insights to global enterprises since 1996.


app use artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

While traditionally it has been the task of front-end developers to transform the work of designers from raw graphical user interface mockups to actual source code, this trend might soon be a thing of the past – courtesy of artificial intelligence. Copenhagen-based startup UIzard Technologies has leveraged the latest developments in the field of machine learning to build a neural network that, once fed with raw screenshots of graphical user interface, proceeds to automatically generate code. At present, the method generates code from screenshots with an impressive accuracy of over 77 percent, but the consistency of the algorithm is likely to improve in the future. While UIzard has already shared some of the principles behind the technology powering its software, the company notes that the source code for the actual app will become available later this year.

Elon Musk wants to link computers to our brains to prevent an existential threat to humanity

#artificialintelligence

Musk reportedly plans to spend 3-5% of his work time on Neuralink, which will develop technology to integrate brains and computers as a way to fix medical problems and eventually supercharge human cognition. That potential has clearly captured Musk's interest, but this new project also seems to stem from his concerns about super-intelligent artificial intelligence (AI). Urban wrote an excellent 38,000 word post about Neuralink and AI's existential threat to humanity, but he gave a short version of this idea to author Virginia Heffernan in a conversation hosted by Heleo: "Elon is very nervous about AI, and rightly so. "We already have a digital tertiary layer in a sense, in that you have your computer or your phone or your applications," Musk told Urban.
