IIT Roorkee joins Coursera to launch 2 AI, ML programmes - Express Computer

#artificialintelligence

The Indian Institute of Technology-Roorkee (IIT-R) in partnership with leading online learning platform Coursera on Thursday launched two new online certificate programmes for professionals looking to build skills in data science, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). The six-month certificate programme in AI and ML will consist of video lectures, hands-on learning opportunities, team projects, tutorials and workshops. The programme will also teach classical ML techniques and provide hands-on programming experience with'Tensorflow' software for model building, robust ML production and powerful experimentation. The certificate programme in data science will help professionals build skills in data science, machine learning, critical thinking, data collection, data visualization and data management. "We are delighted to partner with Coursera to help fulfil the goal of inclusive education of the New Education Policy," Professor Ajit K Chaturvedi, Director, IIT Roorkee, said in a statement.


Artificial Intelligence, Enough of the hype! What is it?

#artificialintelligence

There is a lot of hype around Artificial Intelligence (AI) and as I mentioned in my last blog there is weak and strong AI. Personally I prefer the term narrow instead of weak for AI as the AI we have today is focused on narrow or very specific tasks. AI in of itself is a large field and the best way of getting to understand AI is to get a grounding in the basics. I like to think of AI as being an onion, as it has layers of depth starting on the outside with AI and with Deep Learning at the centre. Don't worry I will explain what these terms mean in a little bit.


The State of AI-Driven Digital Transformation

#artificialintelligence

With a holistic transformation strategy, AI can create wonders. Over the past decade, digital transformation has been changing and re-inventing the way organisations conduct business. Essentially, it is the process of leveraging digital technology to create new or modify existing customer experiences as well as business culture and processes, to meet changing customer and market needs. Digital transformation is a foundational change in how an organisation delivers value to its customers. Here's where artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to become the game changer.


Goonhilly given almost £1 million to develop artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

The fund is aimed at pushing on projects that will help local areas recover from the impact of Covid-19. Goonhilly is working with the University of Oxford, University of Manchester, University of Leeds and University of Hertfordshire on the institute. It will include space for companies to come and use the facilities at Goonhilly and work with the team on ideas. The idea is that the mathematics involved in a number of fields, including radio astronomy, artificial intelligence and machine learning, are closely connected and so the team is using members' skills in each area to apply algorithms developed in one field to solve problems in another. Meanwhile the Receiver Factory is an advanced manufacturing facility that can be used to develop Goonhilly's own equipment, to make sure its services are at the leading edge of technology, and also to build products to print for third parties.


The AI-boost: Using more artificial intelligence will boost GDP growth

#artificialintelligence

A PwC study in 2017 estimated the world would gain $15.7 trillion by 2030 if artificial intelligence (AI) was adopted across nations. The study said that AI would first lead to productivity enhancement, and a major portion of gains would accrue from consumer-side effects. China, it had said, could see its GDP rising by around a fourth as it was using AI more aggressively. Although the study did not estimate how much India would gain from using AI, new research by Icrier along with Nasscom and Google shows that even a marginal increase in artificial intelligence adoption may add 2.5% to GDP in the immediate term. Moreover, it highlights that if the government spends the Rs 7,000 crore it had envisaged for the national AI programme, GDP could get boosted by as much as $86 billion.

World's first artificial intelligence university to open in Abu Dhabi

#artificialintelligence

The UAE is rolling out its biggest effort yet to develop a workforce versed in artificial intelligence, as the rapidly-advancing technology transforms economies worldwide. The Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI), a new graduate-level AI research institution in Abu Dhabi, is accepting applications for its first masters and PhD programmes this month, with classes scheduled to begin in September 2020. As the first university to have a singular focus on AI, the institution aims to attract students from around the world to advance the technology and propel the UAE's economic diversification efforts. The Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence is an open invitation from Abu Dhabi to the world to unleash AI's full potential To compete with more than a hundred graduate degree programmes in AI – mainly in North America, China and the UK – MBZUAI is offering full scholarships, monthly stipends, health insurance and accommodation to all students. MBZUAI is named after Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, who believes in the transformative power of knowledge and scientific thinking.


AI will be smarter than humans within 5 years, says Elon Musk - Express Computer

#artificialintelligence

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has claimed that Artificial Intelligence will be'vastly smarter' than any human and would overtake us by 2025. "We are headed toward a situation where AI is vastly smarter than humans. I think that time frame is less than five years from now. But that doesn't mean that everything goes to hell in five years. It just means that things get unstable or weird," Musk said in an interview with New York Times over the weekend.

Covid could have been AI's moment in sun. But it isn't as flexible as humans yet

#artificialintelligence

It should have been artificial intelligence's moment in the sun. With billions of dollars of investment in recent years, AI has been touted as a solution to every conceivable problem. So when the COVID-19 pandemic arrived, a multitude of AI models were immediately put to work. Some hunted for new compounds that could be used to develop a vaccine, or attempted to improve diagnosis. Some tracked the evolution of the disease, or generated predictions for patient outcomes.
