If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
During a recent visit to my brother's house, my sister-in-law pointed out their new Amazon Echo Dot. "It's so cute," she said, before showing me her primary use case: "Alexa, tell me a joke!" The sound of Jimmy Fallon's voice suddenly filled the room with a corny joke that made my sister-in-law laugh as she went about her day. Later that afternoon, I was in the house alone. In the time-honored tradition of sibling pranks, I decided to ask Alexa a few precisely worded and detailed queries, asking it multiple times and in multiple ways.
As we become an increasingly data-driven society, the need for individuals well-equipped in Artificial Intelligence and Data Science are becoming crucial in solving diverse problems, making it an important aspect of Public Administration. Public Administration is an umbrella term that encompasses a wide range of duties and functions and aims to fulfil objectives as envisaged by public policies or law. A career in Public Administration requires problem detection and solving capabilities coupled with sound knowledge of governance procedures. Functions such as maintenance of law and order, welfare activities by government, catering to infrastructural needs are examples of Public Administration that make use of data for an informed decision. Data Science involves the curation and analysis of voluminous amounts of information in order to deduce patterns, trends and potential opportunities that can be used to conceptualise efficacious and innovative solutions for a particular problem.
Say you're driving with a friend in a familiar neighborhood, and the friend asks you to turn at the next intersection. The friend doesn't say which way to turn, but since you both know it's a one-way street, it's understood. That type of reasoning is at the heart of a new artificial-intelligence framework – tested successfully on overlapping Sudoku puzzles – that could speed discovery in materials science, renewable energy technology and other areas. An interdisciplinary research team led by Carla Gomes, the Ronald C. and Antonia V. Nielsen Professor of Computing and Information Science in the Cornell Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science, has developed Deep Reasoning Networks (DRNets), which combine deep learning – even with a relatively small amount of data – with an understanding of the subject's boundaries and rules, known as "constraint reasoning." Di Chen, a computer science doctoral student in Gomes' group, is first author of "Automating Crystal-Structure Phase Mapping by Combining Deep Learning with Constraint Reasoning," published Sept. 16 in Nature Machine Intelligence.
Esophageal cancer (EC) is the eighth most common cancer and the sixth leading cause of cancer death worldwide. EC mainly consists of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). EAC is the most common pathological type in Western countries, more than 40% of patients with EAC are diagnosed after the disease has metastasized, and the 5-year survival rate is less than 20%[2,3]. Although the incidence of EAC has been increasing globally, ESCC remains the most common pathological type (80%) of all ECs with the highest incidence across a'cancer belt' extending from East Africa and across the Middle East to Asia. Only 20% of patients with ESCC survive longer than 3 years, primarily due to late-stage diagnosis.
CLIP is a gigantic leap forward, bringing many of the recent developments from the realm of natural language processing into the mainstream of computer vision: unsupervised learning, transformers, and multimodality to name a few. The burst of innovation it has inspired shows its versatility. And this is likely just the beginning. There has been scuttlebutt recently about the coming age of "foundation models" in artificial intelligence that will underpin the state of the art across many different problems in AI; I think CLIP is going to turn out to be the bedrock model for computer vision. In this post, we aim to catalog the continually expanding use-cases for CLIP; we will update it periodically.
As the demand for data science professionals grows rapidly, students are looking for data science crash courses to gain the necessary knowledge and high-end skills needed to tackle real-world challenges. Here are the top data science courses for data aspirants to pursue. The program features a five-course series formulated to boost the foundation of data scientists in the areas of machine learning, data science, and statistics. This course is best suited for students wanting to learn big data analysis. The course gives you a deep understanding of statistics, data analysis techniques, machine learning algorithms, and probability.
Shaking off the dust from what could be described as the longest year known to man -- remote work is a hot topic in the world of employment. By establishing both its benefits, as well as its challenges, remote work has people talking about its permanence. What is more, employees have become accustomed to remote working, in fact, many of them actually prefer it to the office. According to a FlexJobs survey, 65% of employee respondents reported wanting to be full-time remote post-pandemic, and 31% want a hybrid remote work environment -- that's 96% who desire some form of remote work. These numbers inevitably mean that the methods in which we worked during the pandemic, primarily via the screen and through video calls, will have some longevity.
"Artificial Intelligence, or AI, has been through a hype cycle in the last few years. This will be the first of my attempts to reduce some of this hype and best explain AI in terms relevant to Accountants and Planners. The objective here is to encourage accountants and planners to lean into AI and better understand some of the benefits, as well as some of the limitations of AI. Rather than start with complex definitions of AI, I find it more useful to think of AI as a tool you can now put to work to help automate the mundane repetitive tasks in your SMSF business. In its simplest form, AI is a new tool or subset of tools now available for accountants to put to work.
"Of all things the measure is man: of those that are, that they are and of those that are not, that they are not." The saying is from Plato in "Protagoras", and I wonder if we are living in the epoch that will change this saying. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been around for several decades since it first appeared as a tool in computing. Some may put this period in the 1960s, but artificial intelligence in practice began to show serious creations after the beginning of the new millennium. In other words, we have already completed the so-called First Generation of AI.
Technologically, technology is constantly evolving. Artificial intelligence and machine learning have made our lives easier. These amazing technologies can be used to improve systems and achieve the organization's goals. AI and machine learning not only boost the performance of the system but also address the problems of the business like never before. Problems can be addressed more efficiently and quicker than ever before.
