What is artificial intelligence? by Michael Kosta Loukides( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From computer vision to game playing, artificial intelligence (AI) has made a lot of progress in the past few years. Companies such as Google and Facebook have already placed huge bets on this technology, and over the next decade, AI features will steadily creep into one product after another. In this O'Reilly report, you'll examine the state of AI today and where we might be headed in coming years. To explain today's AI capabilities, authors Ben Lorica and Mike Loukides look at prominent examples such as Google's AlphaGo, self-driving cars, and face recognition—AIs that consist of narrow solutions to specific problems. Can researchers develop general intelligence flexible enough for an AI to learn without supervision, or choose what it wants to learn? This report takes a deeper look into: The meaning of "general intelligence" when applied to AIs Moving AIs from supervised learning to unsupervised learning Why AIs can easily solve problems that humans find challenging, but not problems that humans find easy The differences between autonomous AIs and assistive AIs that augment our intelligence Factors that have made AI a hot topic in recent years Today's successful AI systems, such as machine learning and computer vision OpenAI and the push to make AI research open and visible to the public
AI Adoption in the Enterprise by Ben Lorica( )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While O'Reilly has identified several trends among enterprise companies for adopting artificial intelligence, we decided to drill down further to learn just how businesses worldwide are planning and prioritizing this work. In a recent survey, we asked respondents about revenue-bearing AI projects their organizations have in production. How might their AI adoption patterns change over the course of the next year? In this report, data science experts Ben Lorica and Paco Nathan examine the survey's results to reveal how (and how many) respondents are ramping up AI projects. You'll also learn how the scope of AI use among companies is quickly expanding into deep learning, human in the loop, knowledge graphs, and reinforcement learning. You'll learn: How far companies have increased their budgets to accommodate AI-particularly those further along in the process Why nearly half of the respondents cite lack of data and skilled people as factors that slow down AI adoption How companies use AI for R&D projects, customer service, and IT How many companies are exploring deep learning, knowledge graphs, and reinforcement learning Which tools these organizations have chosen for their AI projects
What is AI? by Michael Kosta Loukides( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As this brief article explains, AI broadly defines many systems designed to answer questions and solve problems. Consider Amazon's recommendation system. Or the GPS navigation system that talks to you. Like plumbing or electricity, we'll soon take AI for granted as it steadily does more to help us manage our lives. In this article, O'Reilly's Mike Loukides and Ben Lorica offer a definition of AI by discussing the meaning of intelligence, and exploring whether modern AI applications operate as assistants or actors
