How a new wave of machine learning will impact today’s enterprise

How a new wave of machine learning will impact today’s enterprise | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Advances in deep learning and other machine learning algorithms are currently causing a tectonic shift in the technology landscape. Technology behemoths like Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and Salesforce are engaged in an artificial intelligence (AI) arms race, gobbling up machine learning talent and startups at an alarming pace. They are building AI technology war chests in an effort to develop an insurmountable competitive advantage.

Your Brain Doesn't Contain Memories. It Is Memories

Your Brain Doesn't Contain Memories. It Is Memories | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Recall your favorite memory: the big game you won; the moment you first saw your child's face; the day you realized you had fallen in love. It's not a single memory, though, is it? Reconstructing it, you remember the smells, the colors, the funny thing some other person said, and the way it all made you feel.

Your brain's ability to collect, connect, and create mosaics from these milliseconds-long impressions is the basis of every memory. By extension, it is the basis of you. This isn't just metaphysical poetics. Every sensory experience triggers changes in the molecules of your neurons, reshaping the way they connect to one another. That means your brain is literally made of memories, and memories constantly remake your brain. This framework for memory dates back decades. And a sprawling new review published today in Neuron adds an even finer point: Memory exists because your brain’s molecules, cells, and synapses can tell time.

Defining memory is about as difficult as defining time. In general terms, memory is a change to a system that alters the way that system works in the future. "A typical memory is really just a reactivation of connections between different parts of your brain that were active at some previous time," says neuroscientist Nikolay Kukushkin, coauthor of this paper. And all animals—along with many single-celled organisms—possess some sort of ability to learn from the past.

Intel’s new chip puts a teraflop in your desktop. Here's what that means

Intel’s new chip puts a teraflop in your desktop. Here's what that means | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Earlier this week in Taipei, Intel announced the most powerful desktop chip for consumers that it has ever sold. With 18 cores and a price tag of $1,999, the processor is known as a teraflop chip. Read on.
nukem777's insight:

In short: a powerful chip like this can make virtual reality, gaming, streaming 4K video, or video editing all go faster and more smoothly. A PlayStation 4 has a graphics processing unit that can do over a teraflop, if you’re keeping score at home.

Android has problems, and Google knows that and has plans to replace it with something better. But the Android name won't be going anywhere.

So much for open source in the marketplace
"While Android, the operating system with a Linux kernel, is dead, Android, the brand, is not going anywhere. And if Google is looking to start making custom silicon, we could be seeing Project Fuchsia-based platform go in some interesting directions."

Number of girls taking AP computer-science exam more than doubles

Number of girls taking AP computer-science exam more than doubles | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

"More girls than ever took an AP computer-science exam this year, Seattle nonprofit Code.org announced Tuesday, calling the results “incredible.”

 

"Code.org crunched the numbers from the AP College Board, which shows that 29,708 girls in the U.S. took an Advanced Placement computer science exam this year, more than double the number from 2016.

 

"Girls made up about 27 percent of the 111,262 students who took an AP computer-science exam in 2017.

 

"The number of minorities underrepresented in the tech industry — black, Latinx and Native American — who took the exam nearly tripled from last year, reaching 22,199 students this year. That was about 20 percent of the total."

nukem777's insight:

What usually keeps us from happening intelligence is our too rigid attachment to belief structures, often thinly disguised as story and narrative. Stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and the world, until we believe them, whether the data and the available information supports this or not.
Story and narrative is two of our most magnificent social, cultural, civilizational artefacts. Avoid misusing them.

Information Underload

Information Underload | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
For many years, the underlying thesis of the tech world has been that there is too much information and therefore we need technology to surface the best information. In the mid 2000s, that technology was pitched as Web 2.0. Nowadays, the solution is supposedly AI. I'm increasingly convinced, however, that our problem is not information…

Five Laws of Media and Information Literacy (MIL) | #UNESCO #ModernEDU #Infographic

Five Laws of Media and Information Literacy (MIL) | #UNESCO #ModernEDU #Infographic | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

Empowerment of people through Media and Information Literacy (MIL) is an important prerequisite for fostering equitable access to information and knowledge and promoting free, independent and pluralistic media and information systems.

 

Media and Information Literacy recognizes the primary role of information and media in our everyday lives. It lies at the core of freedom of expression and information - since it empowers citizens to understand the functions of media and other information providers, to critically evaluate their content, and to make informed decisions as users and producer of information and media content.

All Great Artists Share This One Quality—Can AI Learn It Too?

All Great Artists Share This One Quality—Can AI Learn It Too? | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Think about your favorite work of art. Why do you like it so much? What does it do for you?

Be it painting, sculpture, music, or writing, we love art not just for its beauty, but for the reactions and emotions it evokes in us. You probably feel a sort of kinship with your favorite artists even though you’ve never met them, because their work speaks to you in what feels like a unique and personal way.

How does this change when the art in question is produced by a machine and not a human? Is creativity an irreplaceable human skill, or will computers be able to learn it?

In a new video from Big Think, Andrew McAfee, associate director of MIT Sloan School of Management’s Center for Digital Business, discusses these questions and explores the concept of creative AI.

Via Wildcat2030
nukem777's insight:

But besides wondering whether AI will ever be able to understand the human condition and reflect it back to us in a meaningful way, shouldn’t we also be wondering why—or, better yet, whether—we want it to be able to?

'Reminds me of the old Memorex audio tape commercials--"Is it real or is it Memorex?"  Can Artificial Intelligence be as creative as the human spirit?  An excellent question explored in this article. One way or another, singularity is coming.  Your next museum or art director could be a sophisticated robot.

The market for a consumer’s attention (and dollars) is only so large. As the Big Five begin to hit the limit of their natural growth, it’s predictable that they’ll start to flex their muscles in each other’s core markets. This ain’t a bad thing: competition drives innovation, and let’s be honest: There’s not been an awful lot of that in core search, social, and shopping lately.
