As Silicon Valley fights for talent, universities struggle to hold on to their stars

Big advances in artificial intelligence are as likely to come from business as universities

  • Whether tech firms, rather than universities, are best placed to deliver general progress in AI is up for debate.
  • Tech firms have not always lavished such attention and resources on AI experts.
  • Another risk is if expertise in AI is concentrated disproportionately in a few firms.

Drones: Skynet or Safe Bet?

Check out Kit's latest article: 'Drones: Skynet or Safe Bet?'  #AI #Drones #MachineLearning

  • The term means that AI will actually look to work alongside humans, rather than to replace them, and it is that the drones could be most useful.
  • DJI estimate that their drones make up 70% of the total market share worldwide, and retail their drones at $1,399, a bargain considering the sophistication of the technology.
  • First of all, it is highly unlikely that the drones that are to be used in industry will be piloted by just anyone – especially with health and safety being what it is today.
