    1. The Business Guide to Machine Learning

      Machine Learning (ML) algorithms are embedded in the fabric of much of the technology we use every day. ML innovations spanning computer vision, deep learning, natural language processing (NLP), and beyond are part of a larger revolution around practical artificial intelligence (AI). Not autonomous robots or sentient beings but an intelligence layer baked into our apps, software, and cloud services that combines AI algorithms and Big Data under the surface.

    2. IBM Brings Watson to Mobile Device Management

      IBM Brings Watson to Mobile Device Management 5 hrs ago IBM just keeps finding more uses for IBM Watson . As with Salesforce Einstein, you can now think of IBM Watson more as an artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) layer baked into different applications. IBM has applied IBM Watson's deep learning, natural language processing, and predictive analytics to everything from business intelligence (BI) to cancer research.

    5. Google's AI-Translator Beefs Up Language Skills | News & Opinion

      Good news, world travelers: Google Translate is getting a lot more accurate. Google last fall introduced something called neural machine translation , which uses artificial intelligence to translate entire sentences instead of individual phrases for a more fluent and understandable result. Now, the technology is available for three more languages: Hindi, Russian, and Vietnamese. On top of that, Google plans to bring these improvements to "many more languages" over the next couple of weeks.

    6. 5 Steps to Adopt Artificial Intelligence in Your Business

      We're reaching an inflection point with artificial intelligence (AI). This isn't the AI that pop culture has conditioned us to expect; it's not sentient robots or Skynet or even Tony Stark's Jarvis assistant. This AI plateau is happening under the surface, making our existing technology smarter and unlocking the power of all the data that enterprises collect.

    7. Zuckerberg's AI Butler Is a Nirvana Fan

      Mainstream personal assistants like Amazon's Alexa apparently aren't good enough for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who has spent part of the last year building his own custom robot butler . In a post on Facebook on Monday, he shared the preliminary results of his approximately 100 hours of coding: a real-life Jarvis that uses artificial intelligence to do everything from controlling living room lights to entertaining Zuckerberg's baby daughter, Max.

    9. Siri Architect Grapples With How to Make AI Less Artificial

      Over 1,500 attendees were in San Francisco at A.I. World recently to hear experts talk about the future of the artificial intelligence industry. One of the highlights was a panel featuring William Mark , PhD, President of SRI's Information and Computing Sciences Division and one of the brains behind Apple's Siri. "We need to make artificial intelligence less artificial," said Dr. Mark, who stressed that A.I. is a lot more than "deep learning" and machine intelligence.

    11. Businesses Prepare to Plug Into Google's AI Ecosystem

      Google's big event today was all about mobile, but Google CEO Sundar Pichai made a point of starting with a new mantra: Google isn't a mobile-first company, but "AI-first." For Google, that means a convergence of machine learning, the Google Knowledge Graph, voice and image recognition natural language processing (NLP), and conversational artificial intelligence all packaged into Google Assistant.

    13. Say What? Neural Networks Give Google Translate a Boost | News & Opinion

      Google Translate often serves up some laughable results, but that could become a thing of the past with Google Neural Machine Translation (GNMT), which is currently at work on Chinese-to-English translations. "Rapid advances in machine intelligence have improved our speech recognition and image recognition capabilities, but improving machine translation remains a challenging goal," Quoc V. Le and Mike Schuster, Google Brain Team research scientists, wrote in a blog post .

      Search Like You Talk on Google Drive

      Google is making it a lot easier to find things saved in Drive . The cloud storage service now supports Natural Language Processing for search, which "is a fancy way of saying [you can now] 'search like you talk,'" Google Drive Product Manager Josh Smith wrote in a Tuesday blog post . So, when you're looking for a specific file in Drive on the Web, you can now, for instance, type things like " find my budget spreadsheet from last December," or "show me presentations from Anissa."

      The near future of artificial intelligence (AI) won't be defined by ushering in a race of sentient machines. While we're inching closer to the goal of AI brain mapping , the next era of AI will be more about imbuing the software and applications we use every day with deep learning, machine learning, predictive analytics, and natural language processing (NLP). Those capabilities will run under the surface, along with serving as tools upon which to build.

      MATRIX is Building an Internet of Things That Actually Works

      The Internet of Things (IoT) is everywhere . Every connected device, be it for home automation , automobiles, or next-gen manufacturing and retail is marketed as "smart." The problem is, up to this point, much of what we've seen from IoT is the foundation; laying the "connected things" infrastructure and imbuing every device in sight with sensors and connectivity. Now the embedded appliances and devices in this ecosystem need to start talking to each other.

      Hey Google, Where's the Beef?

      Google I/O in the year of 2016 will likely be remembered as one of the strangest technology conferences of the decade. For one thing, it's unusual for attendees to receive swag bags with water bottles and sunscreen. I can't remember having to bring an umbrella (not for rain, but for shade), a jacket, and extra deoderant to any tech event. But stranger still was that after Google's top leaders presented their vision for the year, the most tantalizing bits were still to come.

    20. Fix the Cloud, or Give Up

      I've long had mixed feelings about online subscription services and the cloud in general, especially when its usefulness pales in comparison to workstation-centric computing. If I can buy 5TB of portable hard disk storage for $150, why should I be spending $10 a month for sub-terabyte cloud storage for my backups? Offsite storage safety? Well, I can keep the backup drive in a safe deposit box at the bank, the trunk of the car, at a friend's house, or in a fireproof safe at home.
