Amsterdam leading the way in artificial intelligence

Amsterdam leading the way in artificial intelligence.

  • Artificial Intelligence for growth – On 15 September 2017, Amsterdam saw the launch of a new AI training programme that teaches people without a technical background about AI and machine learning (ML).
  • The programme, called AI for Marketing Growth, is run by the Growth Tribe academy, which specialises in teaching digital growth skills by means of practical courses and coaching for corporate teams.
  • This new AI programme is the first of its kind and will show participants how AI is used by companies such as Netflix and Amazon.
  • Academia and industry working together on AI – Amsterdam is already an AI forerunner in many other respects as well.
  • The city’s two universities offer a joint masters programme, and Amsterdam is also home to many academic labs that work closely with industry, such as the Qualcomm-QUVA Lab, UvA-Bosch DELTA Lab, AMLAB, Intelligent Sensory Information Systems, and ILPS.

Read about Amsterdam’s role in the global artificial-intelligence sector, including a new training programme that will help the city’s AI ecosystem grow even more.

Being human in the age of artificial intelligence

  • Calling itself The Future of Life Institute, its founders included Jaan Tallinn – who helped create Skype – and a physicist from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
  • That physicist was Professor Max Tegmark.
  • With a mission to help safeguard life and develop optimistic visions of the future, the Institute has focused largely on Artificial Intelligence (AI).
  • Of particular concern is the potential for AI to leapfrog humans and achieve so-called “superintelligence” – something discussed in depth in Tegmark’s latest book Life 3.0.
  • This week Ian Sample asks the physicist and author what would happen if we did manage to create superintelligent AI?

Ian Sample speaks with Prof Max Tegmark about the advance of AI, the future of life on Earth, and what happens if and when a ‘superintelligence’ arrives

An Interview With David Kenny – The Innovator news

  • — D.K.:We are at the point in AI that we were with the Internet in 1993 and mobile around 2003.
  • So I would say, view AI as something in the fabric of your company like electricity — like data flowing through your company in fundamental ways.Is it a threat or an opportunity?
  • — D.K.: The digital and mobile disruptions largely favor distribution, so most of the real value is held by a handful of companies who have consolidated distribution.
  • To take advantage of AI we really encourage companies to maintain control of their data — their intellectual property — because the value is in using it to train the AI.Don’t feed it to (an outside) platform that will serve as a distribution chokehold.
  • Companies need to establish their data and knowledge strategy first — extending their own knowledge and not just turning it over to someone else.

David Kenny, IBM Watson’s Chief and a scheduled keynote speaker at Viva Technology recently spoke to The Innovator about what executives should do to prepare for AI. — D.K.: When you can predict…

AI & Automation Are Key to Digital Transformations

#AI & #Automation Are Key to #Digital Transformations

  • While nearly all IT and business decision-makers believe automation plays a critical role in ongoing digital transformation efforts, most admit that they haven’t made enough progress in this area, according to a recent survey from Infosys.
  • Survey respondents said lifelong learning at their organization is essential, especially as their company struggles to keep employees with highly sought skill sets.
  • “An overwhelming majority of organizations are already undergoing full-cycle digital transformation with the automation of tasks at the center of their collective initiatives,” according to the report.
  • “This means that, in the future, an organization’s competitiveness will be measured in terms of how well its employees are able to do those tasks that automation cannot do—the tasks that involve human curiosity, creativity, and hunger to learn and grow.
  • This also means those enterprises that are highly invested in lifelong learning for their employees—to nurture all that is uniquely human in them—will be the ones that have a workforce better suited to capitalize on the future of business.”

Automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are essential for digital transformations, freeing up employees from mundane tasks so they can pursue creative ones.
