AI


As technology improves, AI and ML applications are becoming increasingly pivotal for businesses to stay ahead of their competition. The time will soon come when a business that doesn’t leverage AI in its decision making processes will find itself out in the cold. While AI holds a lot of potential, the technology is still nascent …

Since “2001: A Space Odyssey,” people have wondered: could machines like HAL 9000 eventually exist that can process information with human-like intelligence? Researchers at Michigan State University say that true, human-level intelligence remains a long way off, but their new paper published in The American Naturalist explores how computers could begin to evolve learning in the same …

China’s star has been steadily rising for decades. Besides slashing extreme poverty rates from 88 percent to under 2 percent in just 30 years, the country has become a global powerhouse in manufacturing and technology. Its pace of growth may slow due to an aging population, but China is nonetheless one of the world’s biggest …

The field of artificial intelligence (AI) has created computers that can drive cars, synthesize chemical compounds, fold proteins and detect high-energy particles at a superhuman level. However, these AI algorithms cannot explain the thought processes behind their decisions. A computer that masters protein folding and also tells researchers more about the rules of biology is …

From Google searches and dating sites to detecting credit card fraud, artificial intelligence (AI) keeps finding new ways to creep into our lives. But can we trust the algorithms that drive it? As humans, we make errors. We can have attention lapses and misinterpret information. Yet when we reassess, we can pick out our errors …

Imagine the first day of your next job. You’ve never visited the office before or sat down with anyone from the company in person. In fact, the first person you meet face-to-face is the security guard, who hands you your building pass at reception. However, even though you’ve never been here before, you make your …

IBM scientists and researchers received 9,130 U.S. patents in 2020, the most of any company, marking 28 consecutive years of IBM patent leadership. IBM led the industry in the number of artificial intelligence (AI), cloud, quantum computing and security-related patents granted.  “The world needs scientific thinking and action more than ever. IBM’s sustained commitment to …

In today’s highly competitive business environment, a diverse workforce has become a factor that can give an organization the edge. Winning clients, attracting talent or even securing funding to take a company public can depend on diversity. For example, Goldman Sachs Group recently announced it will no longer support initial public offerings of companies with all-male boards. The returns on …

After years of promise, more and more businesses are realizing the benefits of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. A 2018 survey showed that 47 percent of companies have integrated at least one AI capability into their business process – up from 20 percent in 2017 – and 71 percent plan to increase their AI investments in …

Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of those concepts that conjures up polar opposite but equally inaccurate visions of the future. There’s the dark, apocalyptic AI from science fiction movies where an all-powerful computer system gains a level of self- awareness, turns against humanity and unleashes armies of killer cyborgs. There’s also the warm and fuzzy …
