The New AI-on-board Applications: Who Will Build Them?

Posted by:

Cognitive computing faces a range of challenges as it moves from computer science labs and pilot projects and edges out into the main stream. The media is full of articles on the promises and perils of the technology. We can read about a few real successes in the field, and a few spectacular misses, like the scandal surrounding IBM and the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Austin, TX. We can read about how the technology will take all of our ...

A Data Scientist’s Take on Cognitive Computing (and more…)

Posted by:

Join the upcoming Leaders in Cognitive webinar, Wednesday 10/11/17 at 12:00 pm Eastern to meet Wayne Thompson, Chief Data Scientist at SAS Institute.

Wayne will tackle the confusing deep water we find ourselves in trying to navigate the proliferation of hype related to “AI” terms like weak and strong AI, cognitive computing, machine learning, and particularly deep learning. Would you know AI if you met up with it on the street? You should after you’ve heard Wayne’s perspective.

To get a sample ...

AI and the Costs of Late Adoption

Posted by:

The McKinsey Global Institute has released an 80-page “discussion paper” entitled Artificial Intelligence: The Next Digital Frontier?

 Needless to say, the question posited in the title is a straw man, as the research results indicate clearly both the current rush toward AI-powered innovations and the business advantages early adopters are experiencing. The report is appropriately wide-ranging, covering the dynamics of profit gains for early-mover enterprises, estimating “windows of opportunity” in the market and the capabilities required to seize them, and, not ...

AI: the new Electricity?

Posted by:

Andrew Ng, formerly AI lead at Baidu, now adjunct professor at Stanford offers a concise, 3-minute overview of his views of “AI as the New Electricity.” He combines a bit of history with some interesting rules of thumb on what currently-human tasks will be AI-able and with a projection of which fields will be first to broadly adopt AI approaches.

Listen to Prof. Ng’s assessment of the progress of the AI market at WSJ Video: http://www.wsj.com/video/andrew-ng-ai-is-the-new-electricity/56CF4056-4324-4AD2-AD2C-93CD5D32610A.html

Using AI In An Uncertain World

Posted by:

Like anything else in life except death and taxes (and even the particulars of these are uncertain), uncertainty is something that humans deal with every day. From relying on the weather report for umbrella advice to getting to work on time, every day actions are fraught with uncertainty and we all have learned how to navigate an unpredictable world. As AI becomes widely deployed, it simply adds a new dimension of unpredictability. Perhaps, however, instead of trying to stuff the ...
