What made buzz this week
We can imagine that in the future, we will have giant AIs trained on thousands of tasks and able to generalize. In short, General Artificial Intelligence.
If robots are going to take over human jobs, that means fewer people will be working, which in turn means fewer people will be paying taxes.
The countrys universities and tech giants are starting to surpass American ones when it comes to researching and implementing AI.
Applied Artificial Intelligence
OpenAI Demonstrates that failures in ML algorithms can lead to very different behaviour from what their designers intended.
Weve been reading a lot about the application of AI in marketing, finance and healthcare. But how is it changing the game within Human Resources?
The hype around AI machine learning has reached mythic proportions. commentators are calling AI the fourth industrial revolution.
