The Artificial Intelligence Race: The AI Documentary

The Artificial Intelligence Race: The AI Documentary

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a science and a set of computational technologies that are inspired by—but typically operate quite differently from—the ways people use their nervous systems and bodies to sense, learn, reason, and take action.
  • While the rate of progress in AI has been patchy and unpredictable, there have been significant advances since the field’s inception sixty years ago…

    Toby Walsh, Professor Artificial Intelligence, University of NSW Sydney “There’s lots of AI already in our lives.

  • You can already see it on your smartphone every time you use Siri, every time you ask a lexer a question, every time you actually use your satellite navigation.
  • You are using some AI that’s recognizing your speech, answering questions, giving you search results recommending books for you to buy on Amazon.
  • They’re the beginnings of AI everywhere in our lives.”

How Robots Will Quickly Replace You at Your Job

Here's what artificial intelligence experts think robots will do in the next 200 years

  • The study polled AI experts on when they thought robots and programs would be able to perform to a handful of jobs and tasks better than humans.
  • For instance, robots will likely be able to fold laundry better than humans between the next two and fourteen years, with the median response being six years.
  • So, sometime in the next fourteen years (though likely well before that), you’ll probably start seeing robots at your nearest laundromat.
  • According to the same polled audience, robots will take over all human jobs sometime in the next 200+ years, with the median response being around 120+ years from now.
  • You should definitely take a look at all the ways your job could automated in the next decade-plus.

Years from now, robots will replace every human in every job function. Here’s how long that will take to accomplish.

TensorFlow Dev Summit 2017: Integrating Keras and TensorFlow

TensorFlow Dev Summit 2017: Integrating #Keras and #TensorFlow

  • My choice has fallen to a presentation by François Chollet of the deep learning library API Keras and its integration with TensorFlow.
  • As Dr. Chollet explains, Keras integrated with TensorFlow promises to streamline deep learning frameworks in ways that will be increasingly user-friendly, rendering the mass adoption of these software developments a more feasible reality:

    Dr. François Chollet is the primary author of Keras, developing this tool while at Research at Google.

  • For instance the way video with text data is processed with the Keras-TensorFlow integration is nicely described with the stack of CNNs, LSTMs and dense final layers with softmax being features explained by Dr. Chollet.
  • The best practises advised by Dr. Chollet about the initialization of recurrent weighs of  the neural network is worth to listen, even if the experienced practitioner feels bored.
  • A final note to the confirmation by Dr. Chollet of the capacity of TensorFlow to streamline  a CloudML or a hyperparameter tuning process with just a few lines of code, enabling a distributed training platform able to enhance big data computes with productivity gains.

I am briefly sharing a video from the last TensorFlow Dev Summit in February 2017. My choice has fallen to a presentation by François Chollet of the deep learning library API Keras and its integration with TensorFlow. As Dr. Chollet explains, Keras integrated with TensorFlow promises to streamline deep learning frameworks in ways that will…

Could Artificial Intelligence Achieve Singularity in 20 Years?

Could #ArtificialIntelligence Achieve Singularity in 20 Years? 

 #fintech @techdiggnews #AI

  • It’s almost safe to say human level artificial intelligence will happen in the years to come, but the question is, how long do we have to wait?
  • As expected, many folks view a future of singularity AI to be a huge problem humans must refrain from bringing into existence, but Damien Scott, a Stanford University business and energy and earth sciences graduate, doesn’t quite agree.
  • “We’ll start to see narrow artificial intelligence domains that keep getting better than the best human,” Scott told Inverse in an interview.
  • Soon enough, every industry will have an AI calling the shots, but to us, the real problem would come into play if humans create an artificial intelligence with every imaginable information baked into its brain.
  • From what many industry pundits have to say, and what we have seen of modern artificial intelligence, its’s clear the singularity is coming.

Artificial intelligence is on the rise and getting smarter with every passing year. It’s almost safe to say human level artificial intelligence will happen in the years

Snapchat Is Beginning to Use Machine Learning to Improve Ad Targeting

Snapchat is beginning to use machine learning to improve ad targeting:

  • Snap’s expected IPO coming sometime next year will likely keep a fire lit under Snap to further innovate.
  • While GBB campaigns are still charged on a CPM basis, Snap says the campaigns end up being more effective.
  • Snap has also been making a big push to improve measurement.
  • Snapchat is adding ways to optimize campaign performance with the help of machine learning.
  • According to CBInsights , Snap Inc. acquired four patents in 2016, and while it’s nowhere near the 16 it received in 2015 or the 18 it received in 2014, it’ll likely need to keep innovating next year.

Snapchat is adding ways to optimize campaign performance with the help of machine learning.  Earlier this month, Snap Inc. began rolling out what it calls Goal-Based Bidding (GBB). The option, available to marketers buying ads through Snapchat’s API, uses machine learning to know which users are most likely to swipe a certain type of ad.

Something New Is Coming – AltspaceVR – Medium

Something New Is Coming  #vr #ar #ai

  • Co-authors Robert Scoble and Shel Israel lead a discussion in virtual reality about how technology got us this far and why AR/VR and AI is next
  • Scoble and Israel, looking down the path of the future with AR, VR, and AI, also want to remind us: “Something new is .”
  • With his first reading, Israel introduced us to the book’s theme by way of its opening sentence – one with a leading clause that sounds particularly familiar. “
  • Entrenched in the tech and digital worlds since before DOS was popular, tech evangelist Robert Scoble and prolific writer Shel Israel performed a reading of their newest collaboration, a book entitled The Fourth Transformation: How Augmented Reality (AR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Will Change Everything.
