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) …
Welcome to episode 52 of AI in Action Ireland, the podcast that breaks down the hype and explores the impact that Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are making on our everyday lives. In the run-up to the 2019 AI Awards, our goal is to share with you the insights of this year's sponsors to showcase the excellent work that is been done within AI in Ireland. Today's guest is Kieran McCorry, National Technology Officer at Microsoft Ireland. With 27 years of experience in the technology industry, Kieran's current role is to help Public Sector customers address their challenges, fully realize their opportunities and pursue their national priorities. Kieran is responsible for positioning Microsoft as the partner technology company of choice and engendering trust, technology vision, strategic alignment, business model, business practices, and policy approaches to Microsoft customers.
IT support has plagued enterprises for years. And for good reason: existing solutions haven't changed for almost two decades. Employees typically either send an email or navigate to an archaic web portal to file an IT ticket and endure long wait times (often days). What's interesting is that the syntax behind IT support tickets hasn't changed much over time: "I can't seem to reset my salesforce password?"; "My laptop screen got cracked"; "My email is not working."

Facial recognition technology is used across China for everything from identifying criminals to measuring students' attention in class. Now, it has debuted a system in its subway that lets you use your face as a ticket. A report from South China Morning Post suggests the subway system in the southern city of Shenzhen has started using facial recognition technology to let folks over 60 years of age register themselves for free subway rides. Other cities such as Jinan, Shanghai, Qingdao, Nanjing, and Nanning are currently experimenting with this system. The technology in Shenzen has been deployed to 18 stations with 28 automatic gate machines and 60 self-service ticket processors.
Many of our digital interactions are increasingly being done through artificial intelligence-driven chatbots & algorithms whether we realize it or not. As we enter this A.I. driven world we ask what are the design & ethical considerations as we enter this paradigm shift for humanity. Join us for this panel discussion as we ask our panelists: Just what is A.I. & what are the different types of A.I.? What's different about designing for A.I.? Where should you start learning to design for A.I.? What are the ethical considerations for designing for A.I.? Which A.I. related platform(s) should you learn? What jobs will open up for A.I.? Schedule 6:30 pm - Doors Open 7:00 pm - Panel Starts 8:30 pm - Panel Ends 9:00 pm - Event Ends / Doors Close Moderated by: Amy Stillhorn, Founder of Big Monocle Amy is the founder & CEO ofBig Monocle, an award-winning creative agency with offices in Utah & California (San Francisco, San Jose, Redwood City & Provo) that services startups & fortune 100 clients.
With the AI industry moving so quickly, it's difficult for ML practitioners to find the time to curate, analyze, and implement new research being published. To help you quickly get up to speed on the latest ML trends, we're introducing our research series, in which we curate the key AI research papers of 2019 and summarize them in an easy-to-read bullet-point format. We'll start with the top 10 AI research papers that we find important and representative of the latest research trends. These papers will give you a broad overview of research advances in neural network architectures, optimization techniques, unsupervised learning, language modeling, computer vision, and more. We've selected these research papers based on technical impact, expert opinions, and industry reception. Of course, there is much more research worth your attention, but we hope this would be a good starting point.
WHEN I ASK IT solution providers or managed service providers if they've used any artificial intelligence (AI) applications yet, most say they haven't--yet the likelihood is they have. Anyone who's used a smartphone to take a photo of a friend and then uploaded it to social media has experienced AI in action with the facial recognition. AI, or machine learning, is not tomorrow's technology. It is here today, and forward-looking MSPs are already leveraging it to help their customers. Cybersecurity is a good example of how AI can help protect your customers faster, better, and cheaper than a human could.

Hello everybody We're excited to share our **classification feature**; we've been working on it for a while now and iterating on it based on feedback from our customers. These are the highlights: **Active learning** it minimizes the effort while tagging and training models. That means we had to build an extremely reliable service that can tackle high volume transactions in real time. I wanted to share some of the **top 3 most frequent use cases** we've seen so far. We're amazed by how business teams are leveraging our AI technology in their operations without the need of technical skills!
