If you will tell me precisely what it is that a machine cannot do, then I can always make a machine which will do just that.
John Von Neumann, 1948
Demand for Artificial Intelligence
How about endowing machines with intelligence and understanding, the unique attributes that always differentiate humans from machines? Scientists and AI experts like Nick Bostrom and Stuart J Russell have foreseen it - the myriad possibilities of making machines artificially intelligent. Despite warnings from eminent scientists like Stephen Hawkings or Elon Musk, AI is here to stay, whether as embodied Robots or as self-driving cars.
AI has already set the chassis for the NextGen software solutions. It is enriching peoples’ lives with a blend of smart apps, intelligent computer systems, smart agents, and latest smart-sensor techniques offering real-time solutions anytime & anywhere.
Intelligent agents form the core of AI which is run by machine learning algorithms and Python programming. As an AI engineer, you need a grasp of computer science, psychology, data science, math, and machine learning in prescribed proportions.
Artificial Intelligence is an ambitious dream of making machines incorporate human intelligence - that means, training machines to behave as intelligently. Today, AI has emerged as a fascinating technology transforming the world around, making computers and machines progressively learn and acquire intelligent behaviour patterns. This also makes AI a rebel to the traditional control systems and theories that had been limited in their contexts and methodologies.

AI Revolutionizing the Future Cars
Every popular car maker in the world - Audi, Volvo, Tesla Motors, Mercedes-Benz, and General Motors, are testing self-driving vehicles.
The sophisticated AI algorithms are developed to offer enhanced experiences and new capabilities for car users. The AI technology offers an entirely new development paradigm where things exponentially improve by predicting beforehand what the car user needs. AI has pioneered in paving the way for “road-autonomy” by redefining the in-car experience, designing natural user interfaces, personalization and continuous driver awareness monitoring.
The additional enhancements AI offers for autonomous cars are:
Customized user interfaces
Personalization of luxury features
Surround view perception
Path planner and finder
As we zoom through downtown, highways and bylanes, what could be better than an intelligent car negotiating the traffic, the jams, confusing intersections, narrow lanes, bridges, rough, snowy or rainy weather, all by itself!! We love you AI!
AI Augmenting Business Leadership
In this AI era, a successful business leader embraces innovation by exploring multiplicity of intelligences and not limiting themselves to academic excellence.
Data scientists can help organizations strategize by extracting the required business intelligence from the enormous amount of data generated everyday. Using the AI-based network, businesses can now track increase in sales, detect any type of fraud, improve customer experience, automate work processes, automate inventory and delivery management, all this based on AI-predictive models. AI helps bring about a paradigm shift in the thought process of the business leaders and enhance the development and execution of crucial business strategies in organizations.
AI Enhancing Home Automation
The foundation of home automation products and devices be it interactive voice assistants or internet of things (IoT) sensor devices, is AI technology. It is essential to adopt AI for building intelligent conversational interfaces for devices and applications.
Bloomberg reports about Amazon working on creating a domestic assistant robot Vesta.
Deploying machine learning algorithms, scientists and engineers have developed functionalities like wake word detection, automatic speech recognition, natural language understanding, contextual reasoning, dialog management, question answering, converting text-to-speech and so on. Alexa is revolutionizing daily conveniences like playing music, switching between TV channels, searching information, controlling smart home, to much more by accessing computing resources available via Amazon Web Services (AWS) and its large-scale heterogeneous data resources.
The role of AI in home automation is about exploring the use of contextual information for adapting language models (LMs) to each user agent interaction. Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) systems are key to such interactions. Building language models (LMs) for ASR systems is to learn models that can be trained to predict the conditional word probabilities given the context of the previous words.
AI for Capturing Cyber Threat Intelligence
AI-powered cyber security solutions are predicted to touch US$11,047 million by the year 2025. The perfect combination of AI and machine learning capabilities of cyber security, accelerates the detection of malware and network intrusion over large networks with higher speed and accuracy. Threat detection being a very specialized function, enabling AI-powered machines to learn from past cyber threats and gradually adapt to complex data, offer better security solutions against complex cyber threats we face today.
AI enables organizations to gather pre-reconnaissance data (including anomalies, botnet and phishing detection) that can be used in procuring cyber threat intelligence. Gathering of threat intelligence is the first line of defence in the cyber security infrastructure, followed by the reactive security systems such as intrusion detection systems (IDSs) and mitigation techniques.
AI bringing about a paradigm shift in businesses
Most global businesses have started reaping the benefits of adopting the AI technology in their products and services. According to a UN report, “as much as two-thirds of all jobs in the developing countries could be affected by significant automation”.
Recently, a Chinese chess grandmaster, Ke Jie was defeated squarely by a stronger AI AlphaGo player.
From Netflix using AI cognitive capabilities to power movie recommendations, Google’s AlphaGo that can ‘think’ with advanced reasoning and deductive skills to beat humans at a game, Amazon being able to predict the buyer’s choices, AI assisting media planners buy advertisements, copywriters using AI to optimize their tasks, mobile becoming the all-pervasive AI platform, to AI emulating human behaviour, there is absolutely no business that has not been untouched by the AI revolution!

1. Building a global intelligence network to track any cyberthreat across regions or countries
2. Invest in R&D to improve and enhance data privacy processes
AI Global Education
Microsoft Corp and the global education providing company General Assembly (GA), recently launched a joint venture to bridge the global AI skills gap by upskilling and reskilling approximately a 15,000 strong workforce over a three-year period to develop an industry-accredited credentials for Artificial Intelligence Skills.
AI Policing for Public Safety
The technique of ‘predictive policing’ using AI ensures law enforcement to prevent a crime from happening. With increase in the neural network applications, there is more accurate data capture and useful information processing that benefits policing to provide better public security. Using AI, crimes can be predicted based on the following information captured:
Predicting location and period of the crime occurrence
Identification and prediction of potential criminals
Profile matching of a potential criminal
Mapping areas and demographics which could bear the brunt of the crime
For accuracy in predictions, the AI system acquires and analyzes huge volumes of relevant data including historical crime data, call records, economic and geographic information. Based on the analysis accurate predictive models are created to help law enforcement agencies.
Stunning Doctor Robots
If you thought robots manage to assist doctors in analysing and lending a helping hand during diagnosis, update yourselves! Robots are well poised to replace surgeons in the operation theatres! Further, robots are capable of training and assisting junior doctors and surgeons to do their job well.
As per the Lancet Commission, more than five billion people cannot access safe surgery, across the word. To meet this challenge and save 17 million lives every year, "we need to train 2.2 million extra surgeons," according to cancer specialist virtual reality surgery pioneer Shafi Ahmed.
