Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the topic everyone in the world is talking about. It`s already part of our lives, and it doesn’t stay still. From SIRI to self-driving cars, AI is progressing at lightning speed.
According to Narrative Science research, 80% of executives believe artificial intelligence improves worker performance and creates jobs. 44% of executives believe artificial intelligence’s most important benefit is “automated communications that provide data that can be used to make decisions”.
To puzzle out whether artificial intelligence is our pain or gain, Ciklum`s R&D Engineering profs recommend you to watch a set of 5 insightful videos that will let you feel all flavors of advanced technologies. Some video sessions also address a topic of machine learning and deep learning, concepts that are driving AI boost. So, enjoy!
Artificial intelligence and the future
The most exciting thing about AI is that we are not even at one percent aware of what it’s going to be. By the year 2035, a lot of experts are saying that computers will be just as intelligent as a human. In this video, André LeBlanc is speaking about how AI is progressing.
Computer vision and machine learning: Are our smartest devices still blind?
We use our eyes and brains to see and visually sense the world around us. That’s what is given to us by nature. But is it possible to teach a computer to see and understand it? Fei-Fei Li, the Director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab and the Stanford Vision Lab, has achieved a stunning success in computer vision, revolutionary technology in computer science. So, let’s have a look at the results.
Thinking machines could be a global threat. Think hard about it.
What will happen if our computers overtake us? A philosopher and technologist, Nick Bostrom asks to consider this scenario and think hard about the world we’re building right now, driven by thinking machines.
Already scared of superintelligent AI?
You should be, says neuroscientist and philosopher Sam Harris. If we build superhuman machines, we should have complete control over them. The problem is that we haven’t yet grappled with the problems related to creating something that may treat us the way we treat ants.
Can the great Master be brought back to life to create a new masterpiece?
It’s been nearly four centuries since the world lost the talent of Rembrandt van Rijn, a worldwide famous painter, and print maker. Deep learning technology makes it possible to bring a spirit of Dutch ancient art and culture back to life creating the Rembrandt`s pencil paintings from data.
