Artificial Intelligence News

Are you interested in artificial intelligence? Our daily artificial intelligence news digest is perfect for you. It will keep you abreast of developments in this fast-moving, exciting and controversial industry. Artificial intelligence, or AI, is a topic that has fascinated scientists, computer engineers, science fiction writers, and more for decades. It was in 1956 that serious work began with the formation of the field of AI research, but for years the discussions in public revolved around whether a computer could win a game of chess against a world champion player. Recent advances in technology, however, have created more practical applications. This includes machine learning, natural language processing and robotics. But AI sparks as much fear as it does excitement with leading research concluding that, in the near future, nearly half of the jobs in America could be done by machines using AI. And then there are scientists like Stephen Hawking warning that there needs to be a focus on safety to ensure humans can always control the machines. It is a topic that is being debated, studied and developed on a daily basis. Stay on top of it with a free daily artificial intelligence news digest from Wiser.
