Google’s “duplex” AI system for voice recognition and natural language responses is pretty amazing. The phone call snippets here don’t even sound like you’re talking to a bot:

Cloud Class® Course: SQL Server Core 2016

This course will introduce you to SQL Server Core 2016, as well as teach you about SSMS, data tools, installation, server configuration, using Management Studio, and writing and executing queries.

Gartner predicts that by 2020, the average person will have more conversations with bots than with their spouse:

Hopefully this is more due to AI being used in common interfaces, and not because we start migrating towards making "friends" with our mobile devices.

Bots will shape on-demand services of tomorrow

AI chatbots for small and mid-size enterprises that require a team of 4–6 team members. Projects like that take at least 2–3 months to implement and a chatbot always just a part of a bigger system, with custom dashboards, webviews, etc. https://goo.gl/g71BSw

AI and machine learning humanize app development and marketing

Machine learning is being used as a marketing tool as it can access user data and gather additional insights on the users’ behavior and engagement preferences.
While artificial intelligence (AI) has been around for a while, scientists have recently made massive breakthroughs in the field of machine learning, a subfield of AI, as noted by NPR.

Subject of the week | Tell us about a technology you'd like to learn.
I'm fascinated by developments in Machine Learning and want to, heh, learn more about it. Not so much because I want to create Machine Learning systems myself—I have very little interest in the math involved—but so I can know how to leverage the sort of things that are being built. I easily envision the future of most work being about managing various bots and knowing how to apply them to higher level problem solving.

To get started on that path, I'm currently teaching myself Python (via several books on the subject) and would then transition into the use of it to dig deeper into the Machine Learning libraries. (And if I have to, even some refresher on the math... I did pass the AP calculus test, but that was 20 years ago!)

Any of you out there with more knowledge in these areas have some advice on this?

Fascinating stuff! One wonders if we'll see movements like the Luddite rebellion again, or if we can do better about avoiding the sorts of economic problems & fears that gave rise to it:

Trending Tech Everyone Should Know About - My Thoughts
I've been thinking about this subject for a few days now, trying to come up with something unusual. But the thing that keeps coming to mind—even though I feel it's an obvious answer that everyone already does know about—is Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning.

Why? Well first, it's technology that impacts everyone, regardless of how involved you are in the tech industry. I've got little doubt that we're right on the cusp of major social change as a result of machine learning—change as significant as the Industrial Revolution. We've got self-driving cars inevitably hitting the mainstream in the near future. There's cancer detection systems that are faster and more accurate than human analysts. AI systems being trained to defend against cyberattacks. Movie dialog being written by algorithms. The list goes on and on...

And second, while these advancements will absolutely push us forward in exciting new ways, they'll also destroy many jobs. And while that job loss can be terrifying, AI opens us up for entirely new sorts of jobs, major changes to the way work is done, and more that we can't even fully conceive of yet.

Will most knowledge workers of the future become "bot wranglers"? Will some sort of universal basic income

You need to assemble a crack AI team: Where do you even start?

lego_heads_photo_via_shutterstock.jpg
AI is finding its way into every day business and government. The idea of AI is not a new, but what is different is that today's hardware and software is bringing the various concepts underpinning AI to a mass market.

What’s new, too, is the driver: from bots and digital assistants to autonomous vehicles Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Nvidia and others in Silicon Valley are setting a drum beat to which the rest of are marching.

How machine learning enables your best employees to work 24/7

A recent incent industry report states that artificial intelligence and machine learning have great potential, but can’t yet match the breadth of human intelligence. While I would argue you can’t have one without the other, meaning humans are an integral part of both AI and machine learning, both of these technologies have the power to be better than any single employee.

Our CTO, Hal Lonas, talks Artificial Intelligence and machine learning with Information-Management.

Came across this on Wired today:

I highly recommend following the "Watch" link within; it leads to a video on YouTube of one of the researchers from Stanford editing a video of George W. Bush to insert new facial and speech expression in real time using an off-the-shelf webcam.

Yep... We're going to need entirely new techniques for determining and maintaining authenticity for things like this. Hey, maybe that can be one of those uses for quantum computing somehow... I'm also thinking blockchain solutions too (even though I really have a pretty weak grasp on blockchain, it does seem like a primary purpose is to help with data integrity.)

Photoshop brought about many similar problems for photography and all sorts of techniques have had to be created to detect when things are doctored.

But really, it's most important to always have a healthy level of skepticism... Even without any sort of editing of a photograph, it's easy to bend the truth just by what you choose to show in the frame!

Anyone else find it amusingly ironic that the spell check software in my browser doesn't recognize the word driverless?

This is so cool! I've already gone through some of the sections in Apple's Swift Playgrounds app and loved it, but this new support for programming robotic toys looks even more amazing and fun. Great way to get kids learning programming at an early age. (Ok, who am I kidding... I want this for myself!)

Any of you check out the Swift Playgrounds app or have any of these robots? Are you teaching your kids to program?
