7 AI trends to watch in 2017

Seven Artificial Intelligence trends to watch in 2017 - #AI

  • A recent Forrester survey of business and technology professionals found that 58% of them are researching AI, but only 12% are using AI systems.
  • Concerns about AI stealing jobs are nothing new but we anticipate deeper, more nuanced conversations on what AI will mean economically.
  • Expect to hear (a little) less about malevolent AI taking over the world and more about the economic impacts of AI.
  • Most AI systems are black boxes -and immensely complex.
  • Watch highlights covering artificial intelligence, machine learning, intelligence engineering, and more.

From tools, to research, to ethics, Ben Lorica looks at what’s in store for artificial intelligence in 2017.

  • It seemed particularly daunting to investors given the data that big companies are able to amass and slice and dice and use to train AI. “The theory went that if you were a startup, even if you could get people, you couldn’t get the data,” he said.

Earlier this year, Andreessen Horowitz investor Chris Dixon noted that how challenging it’s become for investors to help groom promising AI startups, given..

Artificial Intelligence and the Role of the Salesperson 

 #fintech @lexology #AI

  • It is not accurate enough to provide a consistent level of service, unlike a human being.
  • Recognising the fact, Fast Company believes that businesses can capitalise on it to retain sales staff and provide a level of service that AI cannot.
  • For now, AI can take on the burden of simple sales and service questions, but there is a long way to go before it replaces salespeople.
  • The example of DigitalGenius demonstrates nicely how useful AI can be to retail and customer service, but there are still plenty of barriers to replacing human salespeople.
  • The interactions we have with AI are still rather different to those we have with human beings.

AI, Deep Learning, and Machine Learning: A Primer – Andreessen Horowitz

#AI, #Deep Learning, and #MachineLearning: A Primer – Andreessen Horowitz

  • Things are clearly progressing rapidly when it comes to machine intelligence.
  • From types of machine intelligence to a tour of algorithms, a16z Deal and Research team head Frank Chen walks us through the basics (and beyond) of AI and deep learning in this slide presentation.
  • Of the 20 entries they received then, the winning entry went 7.2 miles; in 2007, in the Urban Challenge, the winning entries went 60 miles under city-like constraints.
  • Now to put the fact in context, compare this to 2004, when DARPA sponsored the very first driverless car Grand Challenge.
  • “One person, in a literal garage, building a self-driving car.”

Machine Intelligence Will Let Us All Work Like CEOs

Machine Intelligence Will Let Us All Work Like CEOs  #ai

  • Machine Intelligence Will Let Us All Work Like CEOs
  • More and more products and services will fuse machine intelligence with crowd work to help users get things done.
  • Most knowledge workers spend less than half of their time doing things they’re really good at (i.e., what they’ve been hired to do).
  • With help from the agents, we’ll be able to look as smart as those CEOs do today.
  • Within five years, most executives at any size company – and most knowledge workers – will have tools that do much of the work of a CEO’s private coterie.
