The two classes of organizational email overload engagements

The two classes of organizational email overload engagements

No comments

By now I’ve worked with a long list of companies (both hi-tech and traditional) to help them solve their problems of information overload, which typically focus on email overload as the top priority. These companies tend to fall into two main classes: those who seek a fast fix (I’ll call them “Class 1”), and those who take a longer, deeper view (“Class 2”). The difference has many ramifications at both the I and the R ends of the ROI equation…

Artificial Intelligence Music and Soundtracks are a thing now

Artificial Intelligence Music and Soundtracks are a thing now

Artificial intelligent music and soundtracks? Yeah, that’s a thing now. AI is slowly but steadily moving in on the music industry. From composing to collaborating with humans, AI is proving to be a huge player in music creation. While still in its beginning stages, Artificial Intelligence and music make quite a compelling duo….at least from what we can see so far.

Yesterday I ordered a pizza with a bot. Yes, a Pizza bot!

It made me think back about the changes the pizza ordering process made in the past 30 years, and its part of a huge movement in Pizza but more importantly in the discovery stage (search and advertising), our customer loyalty as well as what it could mean for privacy.

Will AI Provide a Positive Influence on Parenting?

Will AI Provide a Positive Influence on Parenting?

No comments

As parent you’re constantly worried about whether your child is eating enough, if he or she is happy, whether you’re skewing their views on the world, or if you’re exposing too much of the world to them. It’s a never-ending cycle of love, happiness, worry, and confusion. It’s impossible to be with your child at all times (although we know you wish you could be) so being able to talk with your child about what is going on in their lives is important. Sometimes they’ll tell you stuff, other times you’ll get short answers like “It was okay” or “nothing” when you ask them things like how their day was or what they’re laughing at.

For so long artificial intelligent machines and humanity have been seen as enemies thanks to the thousands of AI movies and TV shows. AI is continually depicted as a force used to interrupt human activity and take over the world in even the most well meaning fictional works today. However, the reality is that AI machines are being used today in many forms to enable and contribute to the social good that is in our society today.

What’s the Turing Test and Which AI Passes It?

No comments

In a 1951 paper, Alan Turing proposed the Turing test called, “The Imitation Game”. The Imitation Game, as he saw it would consist of three rooms with three different people in it. One room would host a man, another a woman, and the third would be the judge. This judge would be tasked with deciding if the person speaking to him or her through a computer was the male contestant or the female.

Thirty years ago, artificial intelligence was still seen as something only found in science fiction novels. Today, it’s creeping up all around in our daily lives. As the world continues to move rapidly towards AI machines, there is one group of individuals who believe that AI can provide more opportunities for the human race, while others believe artificially intelligent machines would destroy the human race if not handled appropriately.
