With AI At Hand, Don't Stop Learning!

Let’s go way back to 1977 and Fleetwood Mac’s single, “Don’t Stop.” “Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow  Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here  It’ll be here, better than before Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.” In our modern world, tomorrows stretch before us in profusion. Our working lives could last for eight decades. Think of the implications. It was only 12 years ago that the first iPhone was released. Smartphones are everywhere now, and we rely on them to an astonishing degree. Think about what new… more

Super Turing Computation Versus Quantum Computation

The Church-Turing limit restricts all current computation, including quantum computers, to rational number computation. This is because quantum computer designs (still not scalable even with high parallelism), are still Turing machines, which are limited by Turing machine constraints. This limits any scalable quantum computer’s ability to solve problems because their Turing machine restricted rational number computations are a tiny fraction of all real numbers, akin to our small solar system when compared… more

Mapping the AI Transformation Journey in Your Organization

We are well and truly in the midst of the AI revolution. Research houses, academicians, think tanks, business and technology leaders all agree upon the significant value waiting to be unlocked through the positive and progressive use of Artificial Intelligence by re-engineering the old and envisioning the new. According to research by Gartner, organizations using cognitive ergonomics and system design in new artificial intelligence projects will achieve long-term success four times more often than others.… more

Managing Bias In AI: What Should Businesses Do?

GUEST POST WRITTEN BY Drew Roselli, Jeanna Matthews, Nisha Talagala The potential for efficiencies and improvements has attracted many companies to invest in AI [1][2]. However, the specter of bias and its potential to cause harm can negatively impact a company’s reputation. Algorithmic bias not only carries risks of legal exposure, but it can also cause sub-optimal performance. For example, bias in lending practices can lead to both financial losses when bias favors bad credit risks, and missed… more

Exploring The Impact Of AI In The Data Center

The fourth industrial revolution is giving rise to a data culture for accelerating digital transformation. Organizations are developing data-driven business models for utilizing data to its maximum potential. As a result, data has become an asset and a significant part of almost every business operation. Practically every organization has started implementing aggressive data collection and analysis for various applications. For this purpose, organizations deploy large data centers to store and process data… more

Microsoft Advances Historical UN AI for Good Global Summit

Jean-Philippe Courtois, EVP and President, Microsoft Global Sales, Marketing & Operations, provided a compelling vision with his opening keynote at the historical UN ITU AI for Good Global Summit (AI4G), hosted May 28-31, 2019 at UN ITU HQ, Geneva. Key themes in Jean-Philippe’s speech included these areas: AI provides incredible new opportunities to transform entire industries from retail, healthcare and energy to agriculture. You can see AI being used today enabling new generations of business… more

Debunking The Myths And Reality Of Artificial Intelligence

Lessons Learned From Recent Academic Progress and Industry Adoption of AI Introduction A few years ago, it was hard to find anyone to have a serious discussion about Artificial Intelligence (AI) outside academic institutions. Today, nearly everyone talks about AI. Like any new major technology trend, the new wave of making AI and intelligent systems a reality is creating curiosity and enthusiasm. People are jumping on its bandwagon adding not only great ideas but also in many cases a lot of false… more

Skill Up Your Career For The New AI Economy

Let's face it - AI job disruption is underway.. A few years ago I had written an article about how technology is literally obliterating jobs and how to skill yourself up for this new economy. In this article I want to provide you with a renewed peek into what I believe is the road to success, should you want to be part of the artificial intelligence economy - which some are equating to the revolution nearly 120 years ago with electricity. But first, let's take a look at what digital disruption or the… more

The Troubling Trajectory Of Technological Singularity

Introduction As humanity stands on the brink of a technology triggered information revolution, the scale, scope and complexity of the impact of intelligence evolution in machines is unlike anything humankind has experienced before. As a result, the speed at which the ideas, innovations and inventions are emerging on the back of artificial intelligence has no historical precedent and is fundamentally disrupting everything in the human ecosystem. In addition, the breadth, depth and impact of this… more

A Quantum Revolution Is Coming

Introduction Quantum physics, the study of the universe on an atomic scale, gives us a reference model to understand the human ecosystem in the discrete individual unit. It helps us understand how individual human behavior impacts collective systems and the security of humanity. Metaphorically, we can see this in how a particle can act both like a particle or a wave. The concept of entanglement is at the core of much of applied quantum physics. The commonly understood definition of entanglement says that… more
