How businesses are using AI: An interactive guide

77% of companies using #cognitive tech and #AI, use them to innovate products and services.

  • Today’s most advanced cognitive technology users offer a glimpse into the possibilities and tangible benefits of creating intelligent businesses.
  • Did you know that 77% of organizations that already implemented cognitive and artificial intelligence technologies use them to innovate products and services, more than for any other business goal?
  • We looked closely at a subset of advanced users — organizations using two or more cognitive technologies for at least one year.
  • These cognitive pioneers are implementing and increasing adoption of these technologies throughout their organizations, uncovering new use cases and paving a path for others to follow or take in entirely new directions.
  • Cognitive and AI technologies are already driving real business value – – Many of these advanced users are embedding a full spectrum of AI technologies — including machine learning, natural language processing and more — into their processes and products.

Why Google and Facebook are the best AI-first organizations // FABERNOVEL

Interesting look at how Google and Facebook are building AI-first organizations  #AI

  • We studied carefully the 2 most advanced organizations that embody this principle, Google and Facebook, to understand how they are structured.
  • Whatever the company you belong to, there are a few lessons to be drawn from these 2 exemplars to design your own AI-first organization: AI-first organizations are complex!
  • AI-first organizations are embodied through various means: not only teams, but also internal software platforms, open-source side projects, and the final services delivered.
  • In AI-first organizations, the most technical experts are not only tasked with creating breakthrough research projects or new technologies; they must also lead internal training efforts.
  • AI-first organizations are inherently agile: in the aggregate, their goal is to maximize both the number of experiments leveraging AI, as well as the speed of deployment and capacity of scaling the successful ones.

At the last Google I/O conference, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai emphasized the ongoing shift from a mobile-first to an AI-first world. What does it mean in

Tech billionaires donate $20m to fund set up to protect society from AI

Tech billionaires donate $20m to the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Fund

  • ‘There’s an urgency to ensure that AI benefits society and minimises harm,’ said LinkedIn founder Hoffman.
  • LinkedIn and eBay founders Reid Hoffman and Pierre Omidyar donate $10m each to the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Fund
  • The fund is one of many new bodies aimed at shaping the future of AI in a positive – or, at least, thoughtful – direction.
  • The founders of LinkedIn and eBay are donating a combined $20m (£16.4m) to fund academic research aimed at ensuring the safety of artificial intelligences.
  • LinkedIn’s founder Reid Hoffman and the Omidyar network, the philanthropic investment firm set up by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, are donating $10m each to the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Fund, which will distribute money to researchers working on the tough ethical problems raised by AI.

AI System Can Generate High-Res Images Based On a Text Description

#AI system can generate high-res images based on a basic text description

  • Our StackGAN for the first time generates 256 x 256 images with photo-realistic details.”
  • This piece of work is completely different: after learning the neural networks are able to create something completely new – such as synthesizing new, photorealistic images from a piece of text we have written.
  • Home > Cool Tech > Neural network can create high-res images based on
  • It’s also fascinating because the two-stage method of drawing images looks, to our way of thinking, a whole lot like the way artists will sketch out a piece of work, and then do a second pass to add detail.
  • Neural network can create high-res images based on a text description

In a new piece of research, neural networks have been used to generate high-resolution photos based only on a basic text description.
