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) …
Bob van Luijt's career in technology started at age 15, building websites to help people sell toothbrushes online. Not many 15 year-olds do that. Apparently, this gave van Luijt enough of a head start to arrive at the confluence of technology trends today. Van Luijt went on to study arts but ended up working full time in technology anyway. In 2015, when Google introduced its RankBrain algorithm, the quality of search results jumped up.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) give security teams the ability to catch bad guys with the power of math. Through the use of effective analytical methods, organizations can become more cyber resilient. With statistical learning; supervised, semi-supervised, and unsupervised ML; advanced visualizations; and other principled approaches tailored for cybersecurity, you will be one step ahead of the game. Here are six ways AI and ML, along with analytics, can boost your company's cyber resilience. AI and ML can remove friction in managing identities through adaptive authentication, which dynamically escalates the factors needed to verify an identity based on risk.
She would end up sharing some of those thoughts with her circle, few will be researched further, few will be written down or few will be acted upon. She wasn't entirely aware of the data ecosystem of which she will be more a part of today than she was yesterday The image reflects the current ecosystem of data flow and activities where a user generates data through interaction with the environment around us like websites, search engines, government agencies, retail stores, banks, etc. Data is then collected from these multiple sources, collated, and mapped to build a massive database with PII (Personally identifiable information), behavioral, transactional, demographical information, etc. Which is then sold to companies, law enforcement agencies, and the same person is targeted/threatened/ surveilled. The person interacts again, and the cycle continues.
As I earlier said ANN exactly the same as the human brain so some great scientist understands the working of our brain and then give some models. The history of neural networking arguably began in the late 1800s with scientific endeavors to study the activity of the human brain. In 1890, William James published the first work about brain activity patterns. In 1943, McCulloch and Pitts created a model of the neuron that is still used today in an artificial neural network. In 1949, Donald Hebb published "The Organization of Behavior," which illustrated a law for synaptic neuron learning.
Breakthroughs in AI and innovations in applying blockchain for personal data control and monetization enable new ways to make money off of personal information that most people currently give away for free. Here we highlight three data science and business model innovations, starting with breakthrough ML technology that learns on the fly. There's an emergent machine learning technology out there that offers a clever new way of finding and classifying unstructured content. In geek-speak, the technology is a vertical, personalized search engine that doesn't require expensive knowledge graphs. In human speak, it's a context-sensitive, human-in-the-loop search engine that uses search criteria and implicit user feedback to recommend high-quality results.
It's currently the 8th most visited website in the U.S. and the 13th most trafficked site in the world. However, the nonprofit which runs Wikipedia, Wikimedia Foundation, hopes that it soon won't be free for everybody. Don't worry, it'll still likely be free for you, dear Mashable reader. But for companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon, Wikipedia is hoping to charge them for publishing its content. A new report by Wired looks into a brand new division under the Wikimedia umbrella called Wikimedia Enterprise.
An academic and a lawyer have teamed up to develop a robot lawyer, which, if successful, will make legal advice affordable to people from all backgrounds, while revolutionizing the legal sector. Robots could take on significant parts of a lawyer's work, reducing the costs and barriers to access to legal services for everyone, rather than just those who can afford the high costs. The project, at the University of Bradford, is initially working on a machine learning-based application to provide immigration-related legal advice, but if successful, it could be replicated across the legal sector. The project was devised by Yash Dubal, immigration lawyer and director at AY&J, and Dhaval Thakker, associate professor at the faculty of engineering and informatics at the University of Bradford. It will harness complex knowledge graph technology and deep learning algorithms to analyse case law and learn from it.

The idea has received government backing in the form of a £170,000 grant from Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Partnerships. Legal firm AY&J Solicitors is providing a further £70,000 as well as the vital knowledge of lawyers.
Google's grip on the web has never been stronger. Its Chrome web browser has almost 70 percent of the market and its search engine a whopping 92 percent share. This story originally appeared on WIRED UK. But Google's dominance is being challenged. Regulators are questioning its monopoly position and claim the company has used anticompetitive tactics to strengthen its dominance.
Let's be honest, you've probably heard a thousand times just how important search engine optimization (SEO) is for your business. If you want to gain higher page rankings on search engines like Google and drive more targeted traffic to your site, a winning search strategy is a must. Well, it turns out that there are a few additional unexpected benefits to SEO that should give you all the more reason to make it a cornerstone of your marketing strategy. No matter how laggy or slow-loading it was, people used to stick around. The attention span of users has shrunk to six seconds on average.
