Alex Cruice's insight:

A really good article defining and detailing some recent developments in AI and introducing a new term: AmI (Ambient Intelligence). This piece gives excellent examples of current real-world applications of AI and predicts the different fields AI will branch into in the future.

This article outlines some of the practical developments in AI. Recent applications of AI are explained and  future applications are predicted. The article introduced me to the term "Ambient intelligence".

 

I'm have a keen interest in how AI can be further incorporated into phones and apps, and how the technology can enhance daily lives. Artificial intelligence is being used to take 10minutes of user activity to predict what the user might need in the next 10 seconds.

Vineet Asre's curator insight, March 22, 2013 5:04 AM

Good article on AI and AML (ambient intellgence) and the improvements that can come from the AI side of things, compared with using human intellgence.

Alex Cruice's insight:

An excellent commentary on the limitations faced by AI research and the attractive solutions offered by commercial applications and the companies that benefit from them. While somewhat speculative, it is an interesting analysis of where AI has been and an encouraging forecast of it's future.

Alex Cruice's insight:

This article, and it's follow-up, provide a very interesting account of one developers foray in to machine learning. While this is not the first of it's kind some very important subjects are touched on, such as: what approaches/theories/algorithms work, what problems are faced when trying to make a machine learn like a human, what makes is easier for software to learn and just how successful it can be?

4-Player: Artificially Dumb Artificial Intelligence | The Quad bu student magazine & blog | Me, myself & AI | Scoop.it
4-Player is a new, weekly video game column examining gaming culture on campus and online, documenting a previously unrepresented segment of BU’s culture.
Alex Cruice's insight:

AI, in regards to video games, has a different set of goals than more traditional applications. The focus becomes on making the system react just imperfectly enough to be believable. So while video games have a limited domain, they are more concerned with the human engagement and interaction aspect of AI than other areas. This article details some of the big steps gaming AI has taken and highlights the challenges faced when making a successful game.

Alex Cruice's insight:

To showcase just the sort of boundaries some in the AI field are pushing, this article details the plans by a few companies to develop software products that will study your social media habits and can then imitate you should you happen to die. 
While the technology behind these products will be the same as other areas intelligent agent development the application is somewhat morbid (although surprisingly has considerable demand).

IBM Watson Why Jeopardy?

In 2007 IBM Research began creating Watson, a data analytics and natural language processing computer, with the goal to have Watson compete on Jeopardy, a pe...
Alex Cruice's insight:

An interesting video by IBM explaining why they chose the game show "Jeopardy!" as the arena in which to forge their latest AI accomplishment, Watson. 
Watson was designed to tackle 'information overload.' Those who make decisions have a limited cognitive capacity. When overloaded with information, it's very possible for a poorer decision to be made. The team at IBM overcame many barriers to produce a deep Q&A machine that accepts natural spoken language as input.

Alex Cruice's insight:

An interesting blog post that presents a hypothetical situation to probe the realm of integrating artificial intelligence into our daily lives. 
Computation has always been about easing the burden of complex calculation and data retention. The field of medicine represents an area where more is better; experience, reading/knowledge and memory play important roles in successful medical diagnoses. However, imitating the nuances of human personality and decision making may well now be the target of intelligent agent developers. Considering we already outsource memory for many things (what's your best friend's phone number?), are "personal" decision-makers really that far off?

Google using artificial intelligence to improve image and video classification

Alex Cruice's insight:

An article displaying just how much interest there is in the applications of the neural network area of AI. While Google are primarily interested in expanding their ability to classify (and therefore search) visuals, this was an unexpected application of the research. This piece also lists other interests in AI Google has shown and gives us a small glimpse of the future applications they are attempting to craft.

The Future of Artificial Intelligence

The Future of Artificial Intelligence | Me, myself & AI | Scoop.it
Robots are here to stay. They will be smarter, more versatile, more autonomous, and more like us in many ways. We humans will need to adapt to keep up.
Alex Cruice's insight:

Although this article is mainly concerned with the application of AI regarding robots, it does identify and detail areas of development and possible concern. 
While it can be disputed that simply by creating better hardware, growing our understanding of neuroscience and teaching robots to imitate humans that it will lead easily to increased 'intelligence,' this piece does expand on possible societal, legal, behavioural, ethical and religious ramifications of introducing robots with a certain degree of autonomy into society.

Alex Cruice's insight:

An article detailing the practical applications IBM's Watson team have pursued since convincingly beating Jeopardy! grand champions. 
IBM have distilled the information overload crushing power of Watson to a system that now fits into a drawer (as well as increasing it's processing power) and provides patient treatment advice for doctors and nurses. 
This is an excellent example of how 'playing' with AI can easily translate into business.

Could artificial intelligence offer better customer service than humans? | | Independent Bytesize Blogs

Could artificial intelligence offer better customer service than humans? | | Independent Bytesize Blogs | Me, myself & AI | Scoop.it
Most retail technology gives more power to the seller but some tech start ups try to help the consumer. One company is using IT to create a service culture. But shouldn't humans be playing their part?
Alex Cruice's insight:

This article explores a very real and possibly disturbing area of AI development: the replacement of humans on the retailer side of customer service. 
If it will soon be possible to have a computer respond 'intelligently' to queries, why would we need the drudge behind the counter who's quite content to ignore you and continue chatting on his/her phone. 
The scope of these intelligent agents is not only to analyse customer history and attempt to identify patterns or predict behaviour but to be able to infer the context of a query and respond appropriately.
