Neil Sahota | Friday, February 15, 2019 - 08:24 | Cognitive World on Forbes

February 19, 2019  |  Source: CogWorld on FORBES What is the law but a series of algorithms? Codified instructions proscribing dos and don’ts—ifs and thens. Sounds a lot like computer programming, right? The legal system, on the other hand, is not as straightforward as coding. Just consider the complicated state of justice today, whether it be problems stemming from backlogged courts, overburdened public defenders and swathes of defendants disproportionately accused of crimes. So, can artificial… more

February 04, 2019  |  Source: CogWorld on FORBES “What people don’t realize is that we are on the verge of a paradigmatic shift in thinking on par with the Copernican Revolution,” says Dr. Angel Iscovich. “The way we make our most personal decisions—from our partners, to our health choices, to yes, even our daily routines— is going to transform due to the falling cost of data storage and rising computing power.” If you only happened to glance at what Dr. Iscovich said, let me repeat the latter part as it… more

The Semantic Zoo - Smart Data Hubs, Knowledge Graphs and Data Catalogs

Kurt Cagle | Friday, January 25, 2019 - 08:13 | Cognitive World on Forbes

By Kurt Cagle  |  January 25, 2019  |  Source: CogWorld on FORBES Sometimes, you can enter into a technology too early. The groundwork for semantics was laid down in the late 1990s and early 2000s, with Tim Berners-Lee's stellar Semantic Web article, debuting in Scientific American in 2004, seen by many as the movement's birth. Yet many early participants in the field of semantics discovered a harsh reality: computer systems were too slow to handle the intense indexing requirements the technology needed,… more

Forget Darwinian Evolution. Humanity May Soon Evolve Itself Through A.I.

January 29, 2019  |  Source: CogWorld on FORBES Does it seem like only yesterday that you were hearing about smart phones for the first time? How about preparing for Y2K? Before we ever realized it, 2019 snuck up on us. And in less than a year, we will be entering a new decade. Before time passes us by again, let’s assess how far we have come as individuals — and as a species. It may feel like humans have always lived in relative peace aided by improving technology, especially if you're a millennial who… more

Jayshree Pandya | Friday, January 11, 2019 - 09:43 | Cognitive World on Forbes

January 11, 2019  |  CogWorld on FORBES Introduction   The evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) — from artificial narrow intelligence (ANI), through artificial general intelligence (AGI), to artificial super intelligence (ASI) — is on its way to changing everything. It's expected that soon, artificial intelligence will combine the intricacy and pattern recognition strength of human intelligence with the speed, memory and knowledge sharing of machine intelligence.   As the rise of AI continues, AI… more

The Disappearance Of AI

Kurt Cagle | Friday, January 11, 2019 - 09:20 | Cognitive World on Forbes

By Kurt Cagle  |  January 11, 2019  |  Source: CogWorld on FORBES All things come to an end, especially economic cycles. People who have logged more than a couple of decades in information technology especially are attuned to it, because their jobs and interests both tend to be forward facing. The inability of a software developer or information manager to read the future, at least in a general sense, usually means that they won't last long in the field. As the markets enter into the gyrations of this… more

January 15, 2019  |  CogWorld on FORBES IntroductionThe rapid progress and development in artificial intelligence (AI) is prompting desperate speculation about its dual use applications and security risks. From autonomous weapons systems (AWS) to facial recognition technology to decision-making algorithms, each emerging application of artificial intelligence brings with it both good and bad. It is this dual nature of artificial intelligence technology that is bringing enormous security risks to not only… more

 By Kurt Cagle  |  January 10, 2019  |  Source: CogWorld on FORBES The engines of IT marketing recently spun out a buzz phrase that's now gaining vogue in many businesses: Digital Transformation. While the exact definition varies depending upon who is currently pushing it, the notion can be summarized roughly as follows: Organizations run on data, and in the twenty-first century, your organization needs to be able to take advantage of all of that data to remain competitive in the marketplace.
