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) …

Since I've started working with Data I've constantly heard about Data Science and so I always wanted to learn more about it. The problem is that when you start exploring what Data Scientists actually do at work, it can get quite confusing. We all understood that Data Science is about using data to create as much impact as possible for a company. And to create this impact a Data Scientist needs tools like building complicated models, designing neat charts or writing code. Basically, a Data Scientist solves real company problems, using data from the past to predict the future.
Smart displays are a unique type of product. The company is announcing today a new set of features for its smart displays, including an “improved visual experience,” a dark theme, relaxing sounds, gentle alarm and Meet improvements. Instead of sticking to a one-page layout with all your notifications and cards lined up horizontally, Google’s smart displays will now have five tabs at the top the following sections: Your Day, Home Control, Media, Communicate and Discover.
The internet is full of misinformation. In an election year, that often means that bad actors are trying to sway the vote one way or another. The president of the United States often spreads misinformation himself. Since the 2016 election, deepfake technology has often been considered one of the biggest threats in the online information wars. The ability to use machine learning in order to seamlessly swap one person's face onto another in order to trick people is certainly concerning.
According to the Department of Energy's 2020 Transportation Energy Data Book, the transportation sector is responsible for more than 69% of petroleum consumption. The Environmental Protection Agency says emissions from transportation account for about 28% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Not all that fuel is efficiently used, contributing to CO2 emissions without providing real benefits. Vehicles stopping for red lights, idling as they wait for the signal lights to change and accelerating to get back up to speed wastes fuel and adds pollutants to the air. Idling vehicles waste more than 6 billion gallons of gasoline and diesel combined every year, DOE estimates.
"Artificial Intelligence and Media," the new 18-page special report from Variety Intelligence Platform (VIP), explores how the transformation of the movie, music and other media and entertainment industries over the past two decades, from ones based primarily on production and distribution of physical media via analog channels to ones based on digital formats and platforms, has yielded a torrent of consumer usage, preference and behavior that can be harnessed and applied across a plethora of entertainment-related functions.
Disinformation is when someone knows the truth but wants us to believe otherwise. Better known as "lying," disinformation is rife in election campaigns. However, under the guise of "fake news," it's rarely been as pervasive and toxic as it's become in this year's US presidential campaign. Sadly, artificial intelligence has been accelerating the spread of deception to a shocking degree in our political culture. AI-generated deepfake media are the least of it.
Iguazio, the data science platform built for production and real-time machine learning applications, announced it has been deployed by mobile software company PadSquad, to improve the relevance and performance of the digital campaigns they run for their customers worldwide. PadSquad is revolutionizing traditional media with interactive features and innovative technologies that transform the audiences' experience and engagement with ad creatives. Iguazio was deployed by PadSquad to use AI to improve ad performance and reduce media costs for their customers. They do this by ingesting and acting upon real-time events – from contextual content on the page, engagement with creative elements like video views, swipeable panels, and hot spots, to the season and time of day – at a rate of over 3,000 events per second. Utilizing online and offline behavioral data from multiple sources, available to them through third-party platforms and their own internal tools, Padsquad can now harness machine learning to optimize ad performance and provide a better and more personalized user experience for their customers' audiences.
'Technology is the future,' the phrase no more represents the future. Technology has already invaded human's everyday life through various applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Henceforth, innovations are ruling the world today. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has spread its wings across various sectors. The technology is making all the pointers in the impossible bucket list possible.
The field of journalism over the past decade or so has been witnessing continuous change. Today, journalism is influenced by big data and new computational tools. Data and visualisation have become the latest techniques for telling stories in media, thanks to intersections between journalism and computation. One of the many things that AI is doing for journalism is to make it easier and faster to analyse the data and also synthesise the data into stories. When we mention automatic story writing tools, they use Natural Language Understanding and Processing, to synthesise the stories.
