The German government is facing a bill of around $887,000 (800,000 euros) for failing to upgrade to Windows 10 ahead of the Windows 7 end of support date last week. German newspaper Handelsblatt reports that the German Federal Ministry is looking to secure at least 33,000 machines still running Windows 7, which involves paying Microsoft a fee per device for a year of extended security protection. Lego is releasing an official International Space Station kit, which includes a scale model of the orbital platform, along with a miniature dockable Space Shuttle, a deployable satellite and two astronaut mini figurines. The kit is made up of 864 pieces, and celebrates the science station's more than 20 years in operation. It was originally suggested through Lego's Ideas platform, which crowdsources ideas from the Lego fan community.

Understanding AlphaGo: how AI thinks and learns (Advanced)

#artificialintelligence

"It was the worst possible time, Everyone else was doing something different." In 1943, neurophysiologist Warren McCulloch and mathematician Walter Pitts created computational models based on math algorithms called Threshold Logic Unit (TLU) to describe how neurons might work. Simulations of neural networks were possible until computers became more advanced in the 1950s. Before the 2000s it was considered one of the worst areas of research. LeCun and Hinton variously mentioned how in this period their papers were routinely rejected from being published due to their subject being neural networks.


Face Recognition: What Can a Face Recognition App Be Capable Of and How to Make It Happen?

#artificialintelligence

There Is a Range of Tasks Your Face Recognition App Can Be Designed to Perform If You Use the Right Face Recognition Methods. The Facial Recognition technology has been one of those, gaining ground fastest over recent years and one that is still, obviously, pretty far from its heyday. Invented to, virtually, enhance, or rather, extend one of the 6 human senses, it is finding new, often, critically important (for example, public security-related) uses and becoming more wide-spread globally by the day. According to Researchandmarkets.com, the total worth of the global Face Recognition software market is estimated to have constituted some USD 3.85 billion in 2017 and it is predicted to reach USD 9.78 billion in 2023, thus showing a nearly threefold growth. This can only mean that while giving those better equipped with Face Recognition apps an edge and an additional means of control, the rapidly developing Facial Recognition technology is also becoming a competitive factor for businesses in various industry sectors.


The Future of AI in the Face of Data Famine

#artificialintelligence

The field of artificial intelligence research was founded as an academic discipline in 1956. Despite a history of 60 years, the era is still at the very beginning, and the future has a bumpy road ahead when compared to similar disciplines, which is mainly driven by challenges in the domain of ethics and availability of data. Fluctuating Fortunes of AI Since its beginning, Artificial Intelligence has experienced three major breakthroughs and two periods of stagnation. Its most recent renaissance was triggered in 2016 with the historical moment of AlphaGo defeating the world's best players of Go, a game thought to be too complex for Artificial Intelligence. As we learned from the previous circles of AI, whenever it makes a leap forward, there is a lot of scrutiny and concern over what this means for the world; both in the industry as well as society.

Artificial Intelligence Software Market to Reach $126.0 Billion in Annual Worldwide Revenue by 2025

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) within the consumer, enterprise, government, and defense sectors is migrating from a conceptual "nice to have" to an essential technology driving improvements in quality, efficiency, and speed. According to a new report from Tractica, the top industry sectors where AI is likely to bring major transformation remain those in which there is a clear business case for incorporating AI, rather than pie-in-the-sky use cases that may not generate return on investment for many years. "The global AI market is entering a new phase in 2020 where the narrative is shifting from asking whether AI is viable to declaring that AI is now a requirement for most enterprises that are trying to compete on a global level," says principal analyst Keith Kirkpatrick. According to the market intelligence company, AI is likely to thrive in consumer (Internet services), automotive, financial services, telecommunications, and retail industries. Not surprisingly, the consumer sector has demonstrated its ability to capture AI, thanks to the combination of three key factors – large data sets, high-performance hardware and state of the art algorithms.
