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) …
There is no shortage of advances in AI these days especially as it relates to Deep Learning. From "Everybody dance now" where an AI-based Transfer Motion can make you appear to dance like a star, to an AI-based News Anchor in China that reads the daily news with impressive facial expressions and voice inflection much like a human. For Healthcare there has been much advances in medical imaging analysis from diagnostic imaging, to diabetic retinopathy, etc. to name a few. This is great news, but I believe more can be done, specifically as it relates to the use of AI in physician and hospital settings. The following are 3 practical ways to think about AI in healthcare.
On an isolated stretch of industrial flatland outside Knoxville, Tenn., a minibus is taking shape in a car factory unlike any other. The space is small, the size of a supermarket, and all but tool-free. Instead, perched in the center is the world's largest 3D printer, a gangly 10-by-40-foot behemoth with a steel-gray exterior, thick columnar footings, and derrick-like roof beams to true its frame. When the print heads are in motion, the equipment emits little more than a whisper, dexterously cutting sharp angles and rounded edges. Programmers on laptops and quality-control experts with tablets mill around, inputting design changes and fine-tuning the minibus's sensor instructions. Beyond the assembly room lies a kind of alchemist's playground, where young staffers with advanced degrees in materials science and mechanical engineering synthesize nanopolymers or test exotic particles for strength or thermal and electrical conductivity.

In Binged, Mashable breaks down why we binge-watch, how we binge-watch, and what it does to us. Because binge-watching is the new normal. The screen-filled electric car company Byton knows you can't put down that Netflix series. The Chinese EV company designed its upcoming M-Byte SUV knowing the car is another place to consume shows, movies, music, games, podcasts, and social media GIFs, streaming videos, and more. This isn't just about taking on Tesla's battery, range, and price (the base M-Byte will start at $45,000), but building out a unique user experience inside the car.

This week Washington DC was abuzz with news that had nothing to do with the occupant of The While House. A group of progressive legislators, led by Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, in the House of Representatives, introduced "The Green New Deal." The resolution by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was in response to the alarming Fourth National Climate Assessment and aims to reduce global "greenhouse gas emissions from human sources of 40 to 60 percent from 2010 levels by 2030; and net-zero global emissions by 2050." While the bill is largely targeting the transportation industry, many proponents suggest that it would be more impactful, and healthier, to curb America's insatiable appetite for animal agriculture. In a recent BBC report, "Food production accounts for one-quarter to one-third of all anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, and the brunt of responsibility for those numbers falls to the livestock industry."

Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently revealed plans by IBM to invest $2 billion in its new artificial intelligence (AI) research hub that will be located at the Albany, New York-based SUNY Polytechnic Institute. The new artificial intelligence research hub or AI Hardware Center is expected to concentrate on computer chip research, creation, prototyping, carrying out tests and simulation. Governor Andrew Cuomo claimed that the new center would help in attracting new entities in the federal research and artificial intelligence field as well as create numerous jobs. "Artificial intelligence has the potential to transform how we live and how businesses operate, and this partnership with IBM will help ensure New York continues to be on the cutting edge developing innovative technologies," Cuomo said in a statement. IBM also intends to extend and expand its collaboration with SUNY's Center for Semiconductor Research by a minimum of two years and possibly through 2028.
