In a previous post I discussed the underlying philosophy of AI and our limited and inconstant definition of it. In this post I will touch on the brief period in the history of the art when we were intoxicated with pride in our achievements.

The time is coming where humans will start to explore the deeper reaches of space on a much more consistent level. NASA has already used unmanned shuttles, probes, rovers, and exploratory ships to find out more information about galaxies near and far. We have found out more about the size, scope, and shape of the universe because of technological advancements. Now, AI is going to help us do even more.
We all talked at least once to a virtual personal assistant (VPA) in our life. It could be Siri, Alexa, Cortana or even the new Google assistant – they are everywhere. Most of the time though, people stop using their personal assistants after the first interaction and could barely find a “common language”.

In today’s world of artificial intelligence, some are working extremely hard to push the envelope and create the advanced world we live in. These influencers are contributing greatly to technology innovation, with incredible brains to see something and imagine what it could be instead of just settling on our current state of being.

Smartphones are so empowering. They put a whole world of information at our fingertips. They allow us to access an incredible range of apps and services. And they make it possible for us to send and receive e-mail everywhere we go and at all times of the day and working long after working hours have finished.

Caring for the terminally ill can be hard. It’s often those terminal patients who encounter medical errors or lack of support at the very end of their lives. Whether it is due to lack of resources, being understaffed, or simply an oversight, the end of life shouldn’t be tainted with such experiences.

I am not an AI researcher by any means; on the other hand, I’ve been fascinated by the advancing field of computing since I was in high school in the era of mainframes and punched cards, and I’ve worked and played right in the middle of this field ever since; so I’ve had ample opportunity to give thought to that intriguing yet maddeningly elusive concept, or oxymoron, or design goal: Artificial Intelligence. In this post I attend the origins of the field; in future posts I’ll be looking at what happened next.

It has been discussed in 2017: should artificial intelligence have a seat in our judicial systems? It’s a scary concept for many people, mostly because it is unknown what will come of it. Surely, there are pros and cons to having artificial intelligence in our lives at all, let alone at the crux of our judicial system.

Artificial intelligence is taking over almost every industry, but what role will AI have in the Enterprise? Many people think that AI doesn’t have a place in every industry and a few years ago, they would have been right. Now, artificially intelligent machines are more clever than ever and are used everywhere from teaching to medicine.

Virtual personal assistants (VPAs) are becoming more and more popular with people who need some extra help but don’t have the means to hire a personal assistant that is human. There are a few options out there right now, but they are not all created equal.
Take a look at the personal assistants offered by the main players in the industry for 2017:
