Talking Digital Future: Artificial Intelligence Cointelegraph

#artificialintelligence

I chose artificial intelligence as my next topic, as it can be considered as one of the most known technologies, and people imagine it when they talk about the future. But the right question would be: What is artificial intelligence? Artificial intelligence is not something that just happened in 2015 and 2016. It's been around for a hundred years as an idea, but as a science, we started seeing developments from the 1950s. So, this is quite an old tech topic already, but because of the kinds of technology that we have access to today -- specifically, processing performance and storage -- we're starting to see significant leaps in AI development. When I started the course entitled, "Foundations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0)," I got deeper into the topic of artificial intelligence. One of the differences between the third industrial revolution -- defined by the microchip and digitization -- and the fourth industrial revolution is the scope, velocity and breakthroughs in medicine and biology, as well as widespread use of artificial intelligence across our society. Thus, AI is not only a product of Industry 4.0 but also an impetus as to why the fourth industrial revolution is currently happening and will continue to do so. I think there are two ways to understand AI: the first way is to try giving a quick definition of what it is, but the second is to also think about what it is not.



Domino's is tapping Nvidia GPUs to ramp up AI-powered pizza delivery ZDNet

#artificialintelligence

Pizza delivery has become a cutting-edge business: Pizza Hut, for example, recruited Pepper the Robot in 2016 to take customer orders. Little Caesars has patented a pizza-making robot. Domino's, meanwhile, has teamed up with Ford to deploy self-driving delivery vehicles, and it's conducted drone deliveries. To take its technical operations to the next level, Domino's is leveraging Nvidia GPUs to accelerate and improve its AI-powered applications. What is AI? Everything you need to know about Artificial Intelligence Domino's "has grown our data science team exponentially over the last few years, driven by the impact we've had on translating analytics insights into action items for the business team," Zack Fragoso, a data science and AI manager at the pizza company, said in a blog post published by Nvidia.

Quantum computing could potentially break much of the encryption algorithms and protocols that currently secure the internet and computational industry as they are.

HR Department in Jeopardy: is Technology an Opportunity or a Threat? - CakeHR Blog

#artificialintelligence

Nowadays there's been an increasingly high interest for investment in HR technology. Study carried out by CB Insights (2016) revealed that over $1.96 billion have been invested in start-ups that exclusively dealt with HR tech. However, developments in technology require continuous workplace changes. Automation and artificial intelligence are among those tech practices that allow companies to become the definition of efficiency, high performance and cost-effectiveness. While some worry about people losing their jobs to "superior" robots, others are optimistic that with technology we can all achieve greater things.


If Robots Steal So Many Jobs, Why Aren't They Saving Us Now?

#artificialintelligence

Modern capitalism has never seen anything quite like the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. In a matter of months, the deadly contagious bug has spread around the world, hobbling any economy in its path. In the United States, where consumer spending accounts for more than two-thirds of economic activity, commerce has come to a standstill as people stay home to slow the virus' spread. Hotels and restaurants and airlines have taken massive hits; Delta has cut its flight capacity by 70 percent. One in five US households has already lost work.


Claims Of Robots Outperforming Human Doctors Are Exaggerated, Study Finds

#artificialintelligence

It feels like each year we move closer towards a reality that is straight out of a science fiction film. Artificial intelligence and robotics continue to advance at a rapid rate, and it seems like we'll all be living in a The Jetsons like landscape sooner rather than later. As far as the integration of AI into medicine, though, a new study is advising everyone to pump the brakes. A number of recent research projects have concluded that artificial intelligence is already just as good, if not better, at interpreting medical images than highly trained human doctors and medical professionals. Now, however, an international study comprised of American and British researchers is warning that such claims are exaggerated, inaccurate, and potentially dangerous for patients the world over.

#306: Microlocation, with David Mindell

Robohub

David discusses a system they developed that can detect the location of a special tracking device down to a centimeter level accuracy. They are currently developing a device to detect location down to a millimeter level accuracy. This solves a the core problem of localization for robots. David co-founded Humatics with a mission to revolutionize how people and machines locate, navigate and collaborate. He is a professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT, as well as the Dibner Professor of the History of Engineering and Manufacturing, and Chair of the MIT Task Force on the Work of the Future.
