The Tipping Point for Artificial Intelligence


Artificial intelligence is at a critical point in its evolution. Over the last 500 years, human knowledge and intelligence has originated from evolution, experience, culture, and computers. In the not-so-distant future, most of the knowledge in the world is going to be extracted by machines and will reside in machines. At this point, you might be imagining a future full of Terminators and I, Robot, but that's a long, long way off from where we are today.

Human Factors in Hypertext (HUMAN) Opinion Mining, Summarization and Diversification Narrative and Hypertext I attended the Opinion Mining, Summarization and Diversification workshop. The workshop started with a talk titled: "On Reviews, Ratings and Collaborative Filtering," presented by Dr. Oren Sar Shalom, principal data scientist at Intuit, Israel.

Facebook AI Research Expands With New Academic Collaborations Facebook Newsroom


We created Facebook AI Research over four years ago to focus on advancing the science and technology of AI, and we've always done this by collaborating with local academic communities. FAIR relies on open partnerships to help drive AI forward, where researchers have the freedom to control their own agenda. Ours frequently collaborate with academics from other institutions, and we often provide financial and hardware resources to specific universities. Today, we're announcing new additions to FAIR who are helping us build new AI-specific labs and strengthen existing offices: This dual affiliation model is common across FAIR, with many of our researchers around the world splitting their time between FAIR and a university. This model allows people within FAIR to continue teaching classes and advising graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, while publishing papers regularly.
