- The machines have their own unique neural architectures, distinct from the human kind.
- Intelligence may be expanded to encompass, not merely human thinking, but the thinking of other primates, certain bird species, and even machines and computer programs.
- Digger wasps hide food for the future, but this is more of a programmed behavior.

- The opportunities are just some of the reasons why the Chartered Insurance Institute is delighted to support this research into the challenges facing the insurance community as it looks to ensure it remains relevant to the changing needs of a changing society.
- The brave new world is right now, and throwing up opportunities for insurance to demonstrate its value to customers – in both personal and commercial lines – embracing on-demand, lifestyle solutions and new emerging risks.
- And an opportunity to be more transparent with customers to explain how insurance works – both key to improving customer trust in the insurance profession.
- Insurance companies need to show increased readiness to partner with challengers in order to accelerate their own digital transformation.
- Our survey finds an industry with a growing appetite for innovation and a window of opportunity in which to leverage data flows from the Internet of Things combined with the power of artificial intelligence and the security of blockchain to deliver its own game-changing disruption.

- Machine learning is already being used by Google in some ways.
- For example, the Google News section serves related articles using machine learning.
- Machine learning hasn’t developed to the point where it can fundamentally disrupt SEO or digital marketing.
- Eric Enge explains how machine learning will impact SEO and digital marketing.
- Google’s overall intent with machine learning is to serve better content to users.
Eric Enge, CEO and Founder of Stone Temple Consulting, discusses machine learning and its impact on SEO

- Over 65 percent of the banks surveyed expect to deploy blockchains at scale within the next three years.
- One area where blockchains are already seeing considerable use is in logistics, which is opening the way for blockchains to be used as a way to interact with and monitor Internet of Things devices.
- , this year’s All Things Open conference has responded to interest in blockchains by adding a separate Blockchain track which will run during both days of the event, scheduled for October 26-27 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
- Blockchains, the distributed database model behind cryptocurrency Bitcoin, continues to prove itself as the next big thing in the enterprise.
- “With blockchain now moving into the enterprise and there being a significant ‘open’ component to it, it should be extremely well received,” conference chairperson Todd Lewis told Windows IT Pro.
A study released last week by IBM indicates that blockchain adoption by financial institutions is on the rise and beating expectations. This is good news for IBM, which is betting big on the database technology that was brought to prominence by Bitcoin. Yesterday, Big Blue announced that it has made its Watson-powered blockchain service available to enterprise customers.

- Student Ambassadors lead the way
- Another stand-out project included a Sway Festival , a major undertaking developed by Student Ambassadors at The Westminster School, Dubai .
We all know that deep learning comes from activities that connect young people to the things that matter most to them. Programs like Microsoft Showcase Schools and Microsoft YouthSpark – a global initiative to increase access for all youth to learn computer science – empower students everywhere to achieve more for themselves, their families and their communities. And the results speak for themselves.

@erikbryn: “Amazing #TED talk by Blaise Agüera y Arcas:
Reverse deep learning => Creativity!
We’re on the edge of a new frontier in art and creativity — and it’s not human. Blaise Agüera y Arcas, principal scientist at Google, works with deep neural networks for machine perception and distributed learning. In this captivating demo, he shows how neural nets trained to recognize images can be run in reverse, to generate them. The results: spectacular, hallucinatory collages (and poems!) that defy categorization. “Perception and creativity are very intimately connected,” Agüera y Arcas says. “Any creature, any being that is able to do perceptual acts is also able to create.”
