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) …
Video content will become richer and more data-intensive as it evolves from HD to 4K to 360 and even 8K. Companies are moving these visual workloads to the cloud and edge in order to keep up with capacity, growth and service demands. With the emergence of edge computing and cloudified, 5G networks, organizations have an opportunity to deliver insights through artificial intelligence (AI) that complement new user experiences and are adaptable to the complexities of delivering video content to a global audience. Companies need a visual cloud and media analytics platform that is flexible enough to support changing business models and deployment options, software that enables rapid innovation, and hardware that can scale to provide a range of performance, all while being able to lower total cost of ownership and grow profitability. Intel launched the Intel Select Solutions for Visual Cloud to give companies an easier path towards successful content creation and delivery starting with the Intel Select Solution for Simulation and Visualization and Intel Select Solution for Visual Cloud Delivery Network.
The global insurance fraud detection market size is expected to reach USD 9.7 billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of 13.7% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Detecting and preventing fraudulent activities is a global challenge for insurers. However, the emergence of advanced solutions such as the use of automated business rules, self-learning models, text mining, predictive analytics, image screening, network analysis, and device identification is expected to deliver actionable insights to improve claims processes. As a result, insurance organizations are adopting fraud detection solutions that not only recognize the genuine claims process but also reduce the number of false positives. The prevention and detection of fraud capabilities are increasing with the growing awareness of perpetrators and sophisticated crimes. Global concerns about the ever-increasing cases of insurance frauds coupled with sophisticated organized crime, have signaled a need for coherent action by all insurance companies.

The NBA and GameOn Technology announced a partnership this week where the league will take advantage ... [ ] of the company's AI chatbot technology to provide in-game highlights via Facebook Messenger. As sports move into the new decade, it can be argued that the key new technologies that will define tech's impact will be the influx of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) related to how teams conduct their business objectives. These businesses use range from improving performance on the field and for in-game decision-making to achieving revenue objectives through utilizing the technology to make better use of the enormous amounts of data that teams and leagues collect from fan shopping habits and online behavior. As part of this process, AI is being utilized to automate chat to reduce manpower needs. With this in mind, the National Basketball Association (NBA) announced a partnership this week with AI chatbot company GameOn Technology that will engage fans of the league through Facebook Messenger to deliver highlights in-game.

Today, the NFL announced a new partnership with Amazon Web Services to develop a set of software tools to try and predict what causes player injuries. Called'Digital Athlete,' the program will insert a computer created player into millions of simulated games to generate recommendations about changing player equipment, altering the game's rules, and minimizing injuries in certain scenarios. The program will use Amazon's Regoknition system to break down video feeds from current NFL games and record information about everything from play selection, weather, playing surface, and player position. Amazon and the NFL will partner on a new program called'Digital Athlete,' and AI-driven simulation of millions of games using a computer-created player to learn more about player injuries Amazon's SageMaker software will also be used to build machine learning models to apply that data as the basis to simulate new variations on individual plays and entire games. 'When we apply next-generation technology to advance player health and safety, everyone wins – from players to clubs to fans,' NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
