The Industrial Internet of Things

  • Today, the industrial internet of things has already had an impact on how effectively a factory is run and how its equipment runs.
  • With a network of devices directly linked in the industrial internet of things, there are a few benefits.
  • If there is a jam in machinery, a device connected to the internet of things can halt production around it.
  • If there is a global internet outage, how does that impact factory equipment and other items that are attached through the network that is running the industrial internet of things?
  • While there are some concerns, that doesn’t mean a company shouldn’t consider the industrial internet of things as a solution.

The Industrial Internet of Things – Bill McCabe. The technology in a factory today is far different from what was there even a decade ago.

Google made a site that shows how millions of people draw the same object

Google made a site that shows how millions of people draw the same object

  • Back in November, Google released artificial intelligence experiment that asks you to draw a random object and see if the neural network can identify your doodle.
  • was eventually turned into a tool that transformed drawings into clip art based on the best results it got, helping people add a visual icon to their work without requiring any particular artistic talent.
  • I wasn’t very confident in my frog (croak) so I felt that adding “Ribbit” to the drawing might provide context, even if the AI might not be able to read.
  • Face is a neat one too — I’d guess that depending on the artist, most of these drawings were interpreted as a self portrait.
  • While you can argue that most people see frog in mostly the same way, dragon produced a variety of results — from fire-breathing to horned.

How 4 Agencies Are Using Artificial Intelligence as Part of the Creative Process – Adweek

How 4 agencies are using artificial intelligence as part of the creative process:

A couple of weeks ago, Coca-Cola’s global senior digital director Mariano Bosaz told Adweek he wanted “to start experimenting” with “automated narratives,” including using bots for music and editing the closing credits of commercials.

How to decode #cognitive business: Learn from successful early adopters.  #AI

  • Our market report, “The cognitive advantage: Insights from early adopters on driving business value,” reveals that early adopters employ cognitive computing for competitive differentiation.
  • In fact, 65 percent say that cognitive adoption is very important to their strategy and success, and more than half regard cognitive computing as a must-have to remain competitive.
  • Early adopters leverage a range of capabilities from machine learning to natural language processing to unlock value from a range of data sources, both structured and unstructured.
  • All told, early adopters are pushing the boundaries of traditional business practices and unlocking groundbreaking services and sources of value.
  • Here are just a few of the ways early adopters are seizing the cognitive advantage:

By becoming a cognitive business, early adopters have been able to evolve customer acquisition, increase customer engagement, and improve customer service.

White hat hacker #AI bots prepare for DARPA's DEF CON cyber brawl #cybersecurity #infosec

  • No team even came close to finding and fixing them all, but by combining the best results from each team, the test code was 100 per cent patched by the end of the competition.
  • In qualifying heats last year, 131 pieces of software were examined by AI rivals to find 590 software flaws that DARPA knew about.
  • Software must automatically find bugs in rival code.
  • The agency has put up $2m in prize money in the unlikely event of a team building a system that can not only find flaws but write its own patches and deploy them without crashing.
  • Once the competition is over all, the teams’ code – and DARPA’s test code – will be put online in perpetuity under an open-source license.
