Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is no longer the stuff of science fiction. Already used widely in many different applications, it is here to stay and it is advancing quickly. Several experts, such as the late Stephen Hawking, have spoken out against AI, but others champion its potential to help the human race rather than end it. Does AI pose a threat to humanity? Do its benefits outweigh potential harms? Who should be tasked with regulating the advancement of AI so it remains within the control of humans?
This book provides a brief synthesis of the known implementations, opportunities and challenges at the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and modern industry beyond the big-four companies that traditionally consume and produce such advanced technology: Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft and Google. With this information, the author also makes some reasonable claims about the role of AI in future industries. The book draws on a broad range of material, including reports from consulting firms, published surveys, academic papers and books, and expert knowledge available to the author due to numerous collaborations in academia and industry on AI. It is rigorous rather than speculative, drawing on known findings and expert summaries, where available. This provides industry leaders and other interested stakeholders with an accessible review of contemporary perspectives on AIs forward-looking role in industry as well as a clarifying guide on the major issues that companies are likely to face as they commence on this exciting path.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is all around us, from music choices to electronics to healthcare. AI refers to machines that are programmed to think and act like humans. Examples of AI include Pandora personalized song lists, robotic vacuum cleaners and self-driving vehicles. Many industries offer careers in AI, including financial services, technology, marketing, agriculture, gaming, and retail. As the need for technology and its problem-solving abilities continues to grow, so does the need for highly-skilled individuals to work in this sector. Careers in Artificial Intelligence provides detailed information and need-to-know information on various careers in artificial intelligence. Each chapter provides a wealth of real-world information including A Day in the Life, Work Environment, Education & Training, Earnings & Advancement, Employment Outlook, Networking Contacts, Areas with the Highest Employment Levels, and Conversations with Real Professionals.
Integrated Human-Machine Intelligence: Beyond Artificial Intelligence focuses on deep situational awareness in human-computer integration, covering the interaction and integration mechanisms of human intelligence, machine intelligence and environmental systems. The book also details the cognitive, philosophical, social, scientific and technological, and military theories and methods of human-computer division, cooperation and collaborative decision-making to provide basic theoretical support for a development strategy in the field of national intelligence. Sections focus on describing a new form of intelligence produced by the interaction of human, machine and environmental systems which will become the next generation of AI. From the perspective of deep situational awareness in human-computer integration, the book studies the interaction and integration mechanisms of human intelligence, machine intelligence and environmental systems. In addition, it details the cognitive, philosophical, social, scientific and technological, and military theories and methods of human-computer division, cooperation and collaborative decision-making, so as to provide basic theoretical support for a development strategy in the field of national intelligence. Summarizes the key ideas of computing, perception, cognition and insight into intelligence Provides intelligent omni-directional multi-angle stereo understanding, including the relevant basic concepts and the realization process of intelligence Proposes the concept, definition and framework of deep situational awareness, which is conducive to the realization and development of man-machine integrated intelligent systems Outlines the essence of intelligence, such as facts and values, reason and sensibility, contradiction and balance, etc.
