Here’s IBM’s Blueprint for Winning the AI Race

  • IBM Watson, the company’s well-known AI system, is being used in industries like healthcare and financial services to augment the skills of professionals in those fields.
  • The company has built a cloud computing business with nearly $20 billion of annual revenue, and its Watson AI system has been applied to a wide variety of industries and applications.
  • For example, IBM offers a visual-recognition cloud service powered by Watson; this version of Watson is trained with images tagged with the objects they contain, and the result is a system that can identify objects in other images.
  • IBM views Watson Health, a business unit aimed at applying Watson AI technology to the healthcare industry, as the company’s moonshot.
  • IBM announced the acquisition of Promontory Financial Group in late 2016, betting that Watson could be useful churning through the mountain of regulations related to the financial services industry.

Scientists Are Teaching AI to do Household Chores

  • Researchers from MITs Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and the University of Toronto are teaching AI to do household chore using a Sims inspired virtual simulator.
  • Advertisement – Continue Reading Below – – – To accomplish household tasks, researchers collected common verbal descriptions of household chores, then translated into robot friendly code.
  • Not only did the virtual robot agents successfully make coffee, turn on the toaster and relax on the sofa, but researchers have created a database of household tasks described through natural language, which could help systems like Amazon’s Alexa to carry out more complex tasks.
  • In the future, robot assistants might be able to learn and carry out complex multi-step tasks just by watching a human accomplish them.
  • Advertisement – Continue Reading Below – – – You can imagine a setting where robots are assisting with chores at home and can eventually anticipate personalized wants and needs, or impending action, said PhD student Xavier Puig, lead author of the research.
