If technology is only as good as our understanding of it, then the automotive industry has a long way go.
Airport operators are starting to use the predictive power of software to monitor and forecast passenger numbers, so they can deploy enough agents, screeners, and other staff at the right times, to get everyone through as quickly as possible.
The field of artificial intelligence is so huge, and the potential applications so numerous, that it would be folly to try to explain it all in one — no, wait, IBM just did.
1-800-Flowers’ three new AI tools (the chatbot, its integration with Amazon Alexa and its online IBM Watson concierge service) have together attracted orders in the tens of thousands.
Interactive neural network “playground” visualization offers insights on how machines learn.
A group of MIT researchers has sketched out a way to address a gap in cybersecurity that exists between human and machine. Human-made rules, which are meant to alert the system of an attack, don’t work unless an attack exactly matches one of those rules. Machine-learning measures typically rely on anomaly detection. Consequently, false alarms aren’t uncommon and the system starts to distrust itself.
… shopping or searching with these AIs is much less efficient than using standard web tools. Even worse, it flips the human-machine relationship on its head.
Behind the artificial intelligence personal assistants and concierges are actual people, reading e-mails and ordering Chipotle.
Put simply, machine intelligence and human intelligence are different things, and using similar terms for the two phenomena only serves to confuse things.
Joe Karaganis, a co-author of the research paper, told TorrentFreak, “With notice sending robots talking to notice receiving robots, the step of actually looking at the targeted content often drops out of the equation. The main contribution of our study is to go back in to look at the targeted content and make those human judgments.”
Andrew: Decidedly non-cognitive. Google’s human-machine hybrid approach would work wonders, here.
