AI and IOT
The Internet of Things can use hybris systems and I like how AI/Artificial Intelligence has developed a way for them to use chatbots etc. I think if they they can use both or them together then great.

Re: AI and IOT
Very excited about these two technologies together!

It's a long way off, but has a ton of potential, that's for sure.

It is indeed exciting to be witness to this evolution--as long as a sense of humanity is maintained--there lies the challenge, right?

Re: AI and IOT
I guess Apple is seeing something 2 this effect to as it has just done this:

 

Apple Just Made Another Big Investment In AI


Apple has acquired artificial intelligence startup Lattice Data for $200 million.

The deal, which closed a few weeks ago, will send about 20 engineers from Lattice over to Apple.

Lattice's technology focuses on making sense of "dark data," the mass of disorganized information stored in computer networks that can not be tapped into.

AI will continue to be a key area for the major tech companies, especially as the virtual assistant market continues to grow.

Re: AI and IOT
@mpouraryan, yes, I think all the major tech firms will, or have, recognized that AI gives context, meaning, and value to the technology.  This really develops the use case and emphasizes the value, as opposed to selling the technology itself.

@mpouraryan, yes, I do have faith.  If we users apply it properly there will be true value added and create a positive outcome.  I don't think it will be passive at all.

The problem is what the FCC is doing which will undermine the "promise" you noted which is disturbing--and I have noted this in my deliberations.

Re: AI and IOT
@mpouraryan, undermines only in that it removes the regulation that mandates it.  So there is still the opportunity for the markets/consumers, and leading effectie companies to design and deliver the services that customers want.  That is the target I am focusing on.

Re: AI and IOT
What is imperative for us to all remember is that even Adam Smith himself noted that the "invisible hand" needs guidance--and this lesson seems to be lost on the current crowd in charge at the FCC as they rush in their zeal to overturn things.  Why Break it if it is not?

@mpouraryan, good point!  By changing the patterns again you may create dis-equallibrium and unleash unintended consequences - now that the market has settled in.

What is also critical to underscore is that transformation at its' abstract is unpredictable--and ripe for failure (something that we all can attest to).   The question is, though, one of anticpiating, understanding and realizing when to navigate thorugh the minefields.   I wonder whether our brethren in Washington truly understand that....

Re: AI and IOT
@dcawrey, I full agree.  AI will provide the connecting stream of information for IoT; otherswise you just have added compounded data points.  Plus, AI and machine learning will enable users to identify what is important, relative to their goals, as opposed to simply adding more data - in the quantitative sense.

It will truly add and deliver intelligence to the user.

Re: AI and IOT
@DHagar The problem so far has been that this technology is just not ready for the consumer. I know that companies like IBM and Apple are working to perfect it. That's just going to take time. A lot of time if you ask me.

Re: AI and IOT
@dcawrey, true with the evolving IoT - there is development still to take place.  I think a  lot of development is in play giving value to AI from Big Data.  When those two areas come together to provide practical uses of value, I think that is when things will begin to change and open up - with a positive compounding affect.

AI Cybersecurity
"A great deal of startup activity is also concentrated in cybersecurity. Real-time analytics on streaming data finds anomalous patterns that point to malicious activity which humans cannot possibly spot with a manual inspection of the data."

AI and IoT are great ways to combat cybersecurity which seems to get worse every year. Using AI will allow companies to find potentials threats faster and develop a plan to address and reduce larger scale threats such as DDOS attacks and cyber attacks.

Re: AI Cybersecurity
@freehe, fully agree - I think cybersecurity is a great application for AI and cognitive computing.  It has the market size and patterns that can well establish viable alert monitoring systems for notification and management.

Re: AI Cybersecurity
AI is the great unknown--if not managed properly, it is bound to have unintended consequences--and we must all be on guard for it.     I wonder if that s being realized as the current "Firghtful five" along with the brethern supporting them (AT&T et. al) understand that.

AI & IoT
"Video from security cameras and body cams can be used for facial recognition but the system can also redact images from the video so that it can be released to the public for law enforcement procedures."

Remarkable. Just think what this will do for public safety and security. Someone would think twice before robbing a convenience store with this kind of technology!

Re: AI & IoT
@srufolo1 I'm not sure it will deter the criminal, but it should make it easier to track the person down. Already we have images of people identified on videos released to the public -- sometimes even on social media -- with requests for help in locating them.

AI Security Risks
"Machine learning algorithms need vast amounts of data to learn, and this data was available from the millions of images captured by smartphones and stored in the cloud. These images, 120 million of them, were categorized and catalogued to train machine learning algorithms"

If you didn't already know companies are using your smartphones images and images stored in the cloud for R&D. This is one of the reasons why I don't use apps, the cloud or store images on my phone. Any images I receive on my phone I immediately delete or upload to my computer.
