    1. Semantic Machines hopes to best Google in the conversational AI game

      I believe it was Sartre who wisely said hell is conversational AI. Despite the best intentions of engineers, today’s machine learning really is the savior and handicap of personal assistants. Berkeley-based startup Semantic Machines might suffer the same Achilles’ heel, but its team of 18 artificial intelligence PhDs thinks it can get farther than the current state-of-the-art establishment.

    2. 5 Unexpected Sources Of Bias In Artificial Intelligence

      We tend to think of machines, in particular smart machines, as somehow cold, calculating and unbiased. We believe that self-driving cars will have no preference during life or death decisions between the driver and a random pedestrian. And we understand that learning systems will always converge on ground truth because unbiased algorithms drive them. For some of us, this is a bug: Machines should not be empathetic outside of their rigid point of view. For others, it is a feature: They should be freed of human bias. But in the middle, there is the view they will be objective.

    3. Mobility's rise pulls value of HTML5, project management and CRM skills right along with it

      For developing client-side user interfaces for web applications, HTML, JavaScript and CSS constitute a potent triumvirate for showing content (HTML and possibly XML), input validation and programming functionality (JavaScript), as well as formatting and layout (CSS). Features exclusive to HTML5 and soon-to-arrive 5.1 give even more power to web developers, including better support for graphics and media, which will be critical as the battle for consumers' eyeballs intensifies.

    4. What Is The Difference Between Deep Learning, Machine Learning and AI?

      Deep Learning is not only a massive buzzword spanning business and technology but also a concept that will transform most industries and jobs, as well as the way we live our lives. However, there is confusion about what it is and how it differs from Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Over the past few years, the term “deep learning” has firmly worked its way into business language when the conversation is about Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data and analytics.

    5. Should enterprise CTO’s implement MLS systems?

      Multi-Level Security Information Systems, better known as MLS systems, have proven merit in the DoD arena in terms of providing a security net and thwarting threats to data and infrastructure within a unified system. Certainly this type of implementation would make sense commercially, but in the fast moving, ever-changing enterprise space, CTOs have historically been hesitant to adopt some of the advancements in these trusted operating systems on top of optimized hardware.

    6. Skilled service providers are less vulnerable to automation, says Thumbtack's economist

      Work is becoming increasingly automated thanks to the advancement of technology like machine learning and artificial intelligence, potentially to the detriment of laborers. But not all service providers are being immediately affected by the robot revolution, says Thumbtack’s economist Lucas Puente. Thumbtack, which connects service providers with customers, says the company’s data shows people who list their services on Thumbtack have seen little negative impact.

    7. Defining our relationship with early AI

      Artificial intelligence has fascinated mankind for more than half a century, with the first public mention of computer intelligence recorded during a London lecture by Alan Turing in 1947. More recently, the public has been exposed to headlines that have increasingly contained references to the growing power of AI, whether that’s been AlphaGo’s defeat of legendary Go player Lee Se-dol, Microsoft’s racist AI bot named Tay or any other number of new developments in the machine learning field. Once a plot device for science-fiction tales, AI is becoming real — and human beings are going to have to ...
