According to research from IDC, the global spending on AI (Artificial Intelligence) is expected to hit $97.9 billion by 2023, up from $37.5 billion in 2019. This represents a compound annual growth rate of 28.4%.
No doubt, this is an enormous opportunity for startups. “These days, almost every company needs to leverage AI in order to thrive and build a meaningful future,” said Saar Yoskovitz, who is the CEO of Augury. “This is true for younger startups, and it is true for the largest companies, even in the most traditional and nascent industries like manufacturing and insurance. In a sense, AI has become another layer in the tech stack, like databases, and not a business model.”
All this is true. But then again, finding the right product-market fit is extremely challenging. Consider that AI models generally require a lot of customization. In fact, there is often much variation even for companies in the same industry. 

And yes, there must be a high-quality dataset. But of course, this is far from easy for a startup to develop.

Millions of Americans are unemployed and looking for work. Hiring continues, but there’s far more demand for jobs than supply. As scholars of human resources and management, we believe artificial intelligence could be a boon for job seekers who need an edge in a tight labor market like today’s. What’s more, our research suggests it can make the whole process of finding and changing jobs much less painful, more effective and potentially more lucrative. Make me a match Over the last three years, we’ve intensely studied the role of AI in recruiting. This research shows that job candidates are positively inclined to use AI in the recruiting process and find it more convenient than traditional analog approaches. Advertisement Although companies have been using AI in hiring for a few years, job applicants have only recently begun to discover the power of artificial intelligence to help them in their search. In the old days, if you wanted to see what jobs were out there, you had to go on a job board like Monster.com, type in some keywords, and then get back hundreds or even thousands of open positions, depending on the keywords you used.

NIH Harnesses Artificial Intelligence for COVID-19 Diagnosis, Treatment, and Monitoring

nih harnesses artificial intelligence for covid-19 diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Collaborative network to enlist medical imaging and clinical data sciences to reveal unique features of COVID-19.
The National Institutes of Health has launched the Medical Imaging and Data Resource Center (MIDRC), an ambitious effort that will harness the power of artificial intelligence and medical imaging to fight COVID-19. The multi-institutional collaboration, led by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), part of NIH, will create new tools that physicians can use for early detection and personalized therapies for COVID-19 patients.
“This program is particularly exciting because it will give us new ways to rapidly turn scientific findings into practical imaging tools that benefit COVID-19 patients,” said Bruce J. Tromberg, Ph.D., NIBIB Director.  “It unites leaders in medical imaging and artificial intelligence from academia, professional societies, industry, and government to take on this important challenge.”

They come from a poem written by a computer running a piece of software called Generative Pre-Trained Transformer 3. GPT-3, as it is more commonly known, was developed by OpenAI, an artificial-intelligence (AI) laboratory based in San Francisco, and which Mr Musk helped found. It represents the latest advance in one of the most studied areas of AI: giving computers the ability to generate sophisticated, human-like text.The software is built on the idea of a “language model”. This aims to represent a language statistically, mapping …

Artificial Intelligence System Tops One Billion Neurons on a Desktop Computer

artificial intelligence system tops one billion neurons on a desktop computer

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

WASHINGTON, Aug. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — In a significant advance in the development of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), the Brain Simulator II neural simulator successfully tested one billion neurons on a desktop computer comprised completely of off-the-shelf components. From a performance perspective, the system processed three billion synapses per second. Brain Simulator II is an open-source software platform for proving the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) to AGI.
Seen as another step toward creating brain-level functionality on computers, the spiking neural models used by the Brain Simulator II are more like biological neurons than traditional AI models and contribute immensely to the efficiency of the program. The computer used for this achievement included an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X CPU running at 2.9Ghz (not overclocked) and 128 Gigabytes of RAM.
Energy analysis of the neocortex (the higher-level thinking part of the brain) shows that neurons spike on average, only once every six seconds. This means that its 16 billion neurons generate only 2.5 billion spikes per second in total. The Brain Simulator’s spiking neural model only processes neurons which spike in a specific time interval, rather than processing all of them, and so can be thousands of times faster than traditional artificial neural networks.
