AI Revolution

#AI revolution: 20 key business findings #CIO #CMO

  • To better understand the AI revolution in business, Salesforce Research compiled insights from previous studies, capturing input from 10,800 respondents from sales, services and marketing leaders and 7,000 consumers and business buyers around the globe.
  • AI steps into the business strategy spotlight: while a minority of businesses currently use AI, interest in the technology (machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, smart data discovery, etc) is pervasive and planned adoption is strong.
  • AI use cases span sales, service, and marketing: AI has the potential to become as ubiquitous as electricity or cloud computing.
  • All lines of business are starting to view AI as technology that can improve customer engagement, improve employee productivity and ultimately accelerate digital transformation and business growth (revenue).
  • The power of AI is the ability to gain more knowledge from data, and to augment sales, service and marketing intelligence to help accelerate and bolster a company’s ability to improve stakeholder (employees, partners and customers) performance and experience.

Watch Artificial Intelligence Lose Its Mind While Watching Bob Ross

Watch Artificial Intelligence Lose Its Mind While Watching Bob Ross | @IFLScience  #AI

  • It features an episode of the stoner-favorite television show The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross through Google’s neural network DeepDream.
  • DeepDream is a convolutional neural network, a style of computing inspired by the brain, that identifies and recognizes images and patterns.
  • As Reben explains in the description: “This artwork represents what it would be like for an AI to watch Bob Ross on LSD (once someone invents digital drugs).
  • The unique characteristics of the human voice are learned and generated as well as hallucinations of a system trying to find images which are not there.”
  • Google made the code for DeepDream open-source, meaning there are plenty of videos, images, and apps that utilize it.

Ever wondered what it would be like for artificial intelligence to trip-out while watching Bob Ross paint a pretty picture?

  • This ability to have better training and adjustments can let AI write code to improve other AI.
  • Speaking of murky ethical areas, discussion about AI laws will also be a hot topic of 2017.
  • Systems of law will have to figure out who will be responsible for these AI actions, such as the previously discussed autonomous cars and self-learning machines.
  • Hot topics will include lethal autonomous weapons, job losses and how fair those AI algorithms really are.
  • 2017 is going to be a game-changer for AI, and thus a game-changer for the world.

Artificial intelligence is on the rise. Take a look at the chart above and you’ll see that even in a niche corner of the technological world, there is already the makings of a huge industry. Read on to find out some of our predictions for 2017, because this frontier industry will shape our futures and the world as we know it.

Wearables and artificial intelligence define future

#Wearables and #AI define future

#Health #IoT #bigdata

  • This content is produced by The Australian Financial Review in commercial partnership with the Commonwealth Bank The Internet of Medical Things presents a range of new opportunities for medical businesses and entrepreneurs, claims Mark Dougan, Frost and Sullivan’s Consulting Director for Asia-Pacific.
  • This was one of the business opportunities in the future Internet of Medical Things market – estimated to be worth $20 billion by the beginning of next decade – laid out by Mr Dougan for businesses in the healthcare sector at the recent Australian Healthcare Week conference in Sydney.
  • In the very near future, wearable devices will be able to track every aspect of health and fitness and – when combined with artificial intelligence, robotics and the Internet of Medical Things – there are many opportunities for businesses and practitioners throughout the medical industry.
  • Mr Dougan did warn that there are risks for businesses in the Internet of Medical Things, and cited six common points of failure — ranging from products beings too complex and not interoperable, through to misdirected business models.
  • “How does your device or solution integrate primary and home-based care; who do you need to partner with; how effectively can you reach the end patient; what’s your business model; and finally, how can you as an organisation transform and disrupt how healthcare is delivered.”

The Internet of Medical Things presents a range of new opportunities for medical businesses and entrepreneurs.

Try The Everypixel Tool To See What A Computer Thinks Of Your Best Shot

#AI can now predict whether or not humans will think your photo is awesome

  • The Aesthetics tool, still in beta testing, allows users to upload a photo and get an auto-generated list of tags, as well as a percentage rate on the “chance that this image is awesome.”
  • According to developers, the neural network was trained to view an image much in the same way a human photo editor would, looking at factors such as color, sharpness, and subject.
  • As early users report, the system seems to be fairly good at recognizing factors like whether or not the image is sharp and if the composition is interesting, but it is certainly far from a pair of human eyes.
  • While the results of just how “awesome” a photo is may not be accurate for every image, the auto-tagging tool could prove useful, generating a list of keywords from object recognition as well as less concrete terms, like love, happiness, and teamwork.
  • Clicking on a keyword will bring up an Everypixel search for other images with that same tag, or users can copy and paste the list of keywords.

Can a computer judge art? A new neural network program will rank photos by their probability of being awesome.
