Saying Goodbye To 2019

The New Year is always a good time to reflect and renew, a perfect time to look back at the last twelve months before launching into the next. So, before we get too much further into 2020 and all that will unfold, here’s a look back at a few of the most spectacular artificial intelligence advances and failures of 2019.


AI Is Flying High On The Gartner Hype Curve

There’s always been a media buzz about AI, but if you noticed an increase this year, there’s a reason. Headlines and breaking news about AI are not just hype; there is substance to these news stories. AI is capturing attention because the technology is not only new and revolutionary, but it keeps delivering.


Ethics And AI: Are We Ready For The Rise Of Artificial Intelligence?

No job in the United States has seen more hiring growth in the last five years than artificial-intelligence specialist, a position dedicated to building AI systems and figuring out where to implement them. But is that career growth happening at a faster rate than our ability to address the ethical issues involved when machines make decisions that impact our lives and possibly invade our privacy?


AI Breaks Ground And Establishes Norm As Pop Culture Trend

Whenever an idea or concept trends, it will echo in pop culture, ensconcing itself into our collective consciousness. The arrival of a trend in pop culture signifies a shift in society as we accept or adapt to a new phenomenon. In the case of artificial intelligence, the more mainstream this technology becomes, the more we see appearances in pop culture for references of it. Media that explore significant topics related to AI become the platform for mass adoption or understanding of these issues because of their reach and accessibility.


Scalable AI Takes Products To The Next Level

AI, like so many other trends, began as a novelty concept. The marketplace has a process to vet trendy concepts, and in the end, some turn from a fad into a mainstay. AI is in the middle of this process.


How To Spot Fake AI From The Real Deal

From the headlines and advertisements, it may seem like AI is everywhere. While in fact AI has emerged and established a place in the market, not everything touted as AI is actually artificial intelligence.


The Theoretical And Practical Development Of AI

The untapped potential of AI is mind-boggling, the stuff of wild imaginations that see no limit to the possibilities. Theories expound about a world in which robots and machines manage the basic and advanced functions of living, like grocery shopping or performing tasks and jobs. The whole purpose of robots and machines is to allow humans to be more productive in other pursuits, ultimately paving the way for humans to use their ample free time to advance as a species.


Elon Musk’s Neuralink Offers A Glimpse Of The Future

Recently, you may have read that Elon Musk’s neurotechnology company Neuralink is very close to testing brain implants on humans. For many years researchers have been working on similar technologies that will improve the lives of humans through AI. The immediate target market for Neuralink is paralyzed people. Neuralink is developing a robot to perform the implant operation of a interface in the brain with a high level of precision.  The robot inserts fine threads less than the size of a hair into the brain. Another piece of hardware is a Bluetooth receiver that fits behind the user’s ear and communicates with a phone. Sensors read the electrical activity in the brain. Then the activity is processed into code that allows a paralyzed person to effortlessly control a robotic limb by thinking of the controls. “This is going to sound pretty weird, but ultimately we will achieve symbiosis with artificial intelligence,” Musk said in a press conference.


Three Of Today’s Powerhouse Research For AI

Moore’s Law, a computing term from the ‘70s, states that computing power doubles approximately every 2 years. Since the origin of this law, the changes in computers’ power and capabilities are staggering, and they’re not about to stop. As a result of these advances in computer power, AI has been able to evolve, leading to new developments in society and technology.


The Winner Of The 2019 Loebner Prize

The 2019 Loebner Prize winner has been announced! While once again there is no recipient of the grand prize, a feat reserved for the AI that passes the Turing Test, the annual event nonetheless inspires and excites those who await singularity. The Loebner prize is offered up every year to an AI program that can beat the Turing test, a measurement of the ability for AI to mimic human thinking and response. Every year, contestants enter their AI designed to replicate human behavior in typed conversation, visual, and auditory interaction.
