Understanding Emotional Artificial Intelligence

Will the smart car of the future understand you better than your spouse? Will it be more sympathetic? It might, considering the rate at which emotional artificial intelligence technology is expanding.

As AI-based applications become more mainstream and tech companies race to develop advanced machine-learning solutions, it’s no wonder that technology is becoming more “human.” Some will find the thought of machines responding to your emotions a bit creepy. I personally have a fear of Alexa channeling Heath Ledger’s Joker character from Batman and asking me, “Why so serious?”

However, the advancements that will be made in the fields of medicine, science, and even safety because of emotional AI should far outweigh the fears.

Here’s what you need to know. [more]


Artificial Intelligence in Mobile Applications 

Many people have an irrational fear of artificial intelligence. It conjures up images of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The term “machine learning” is reminiscent of all those angry machines in Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive. It can be quite frightening.

What most people don’t realize is that they’ve already conquered this irrational fear. They are currently using and benefitting from artificial intelligence on a daily basis thanks to AI in mobile apps.

Artificial intelligence in mobile applications includes everything from Siri or Google Assistant to Shazam and Uber. The more addicted we all become to our mobile devices, the more exposure we gain to artificial intelligence.

Here’s a look at how artificial intelligence in mobile applications is changing not only the world in which we live, but how we operate and behave in the ever-changing world of advanced technology. [more]

How Do Chatbots Really Work?

Why is chatbot technology suddenly so popular and why are more and more chatbots popping up on the web and in mobile apps? A big reason for the spike in popularity is the addition of artificial intelligence to chat applications.

One of the main AI chatbot advantages is the ability to deliver instant gratification. People would much rather chat online than take the time to call a company’s 800-number. Another  benefit is higher user engagement and conversion rates. Chatbots can also increase revenue by suggesting additional products based on a shopper’s previous browsing activity.

This technology is a win-win for consumers and businesses. Here’s how it works. [more]


Deep Learning: What’s Next?

Don’t you love the way unsolicited email messages are automatically routed into your spam folder so you never have to see them? This is a great example of how you are benefitting every day from deep learning.

Deep learning is basically a form of artificial intelligence where a computer analyzes big data, then makes predictions, takes actions, and does even more based on the information collected. Big data encompasses everything from digital transactions to social media postings. This is how Google knows exactly what types of ads to show you based on your previous browsing activity.

Current trends in machine learning include driverless cars and Facebook’s facial recognition feature. Which leads us to the question, what’s next? What will the world be realizing thanks to advanced machine learning in the next decade, or even sooner? [more]


5 Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Revolutionize Technology

The concept of artificial intelligence technology has been around since the 1950s when Alan Turing introduced the Turing Test to prove that a machine could carry on an intelligent conversation with a human.

Obviously, there have been a number of advancements since that have brought us to the self-driving cars, “smart” everything, and the “bot” culture we currently find ourselves in.

Obsession with AI technology seems to be at an all-time high, with many VC-backed incubator programs dedicating special resources to artificial intelligence related startups and solutions. And this trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. [more]
