McKinsey on the State of 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 many early adopters are experiencing. The report is appropriately wide-ranging, covering profit-boosting for enterprises, estimating “windows of opportunity” in the market and the capabilities required to seize them, and, not least, considerations of re-skilling ...

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

Cognitive Liability?

Posted by:

Tesla paid a high price in May, 2016, when a complex of issues involving its autopilot and vision functions—as well as driver overconfidence—caused the crash a Florida that killed one of its enthusiastic supporters and brought to the forefront the risk involved in operating a supposedly autonomous driving system that turns out not to be.

Beyond the obvious risk to life and limb, there lurks another unresolved issue that could turn out to be an equally important factor to the success ...

Where Are We With Cognitive Computing Today? Part 1.

Posted by:

Cognitive computing is emerging as a significant part of the next generation of computing. Because it is early days in this new generation of computing, there is still no widespread understanding of what it is and how it differs from some of its relatives: AI, internet of things, machine learning, conversational systems, bots, or NLP. We see in both the US and in Europe that companies are very interested, but are mostly still at the experimentation and proof of concept ...

Notes from World of Watson 2016

Posted by:

IBM’s World of Watson served up an impressive smorgasbord this year: topnotch speakers, thought provoking research, roving robots, and Olli, a self-driving bus/tour guide. For those of us who have tracked cognitive computing since its beginning, the most impressive part of the conference was its size: 17,000 people trekking among multiple venues, hundreds of exhibitors. It’s apparent that AI and cognitive computing and IoT are all converging, and that it’s difficult to tease them apart.

Aside from the mandatory linguistic aspects ...
