As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality. This is in contrast to virtual reality which replaces the real world with a simulated one. AR is in the early stages of an explosive growth cycle. The Pokemon Go phenomenon raised awareness and expectation for the vision of AR. Worldwide AR markets are poised to achieve significant growth with the use of smartphone apps and headsets or glasses to project digital information as images onto a game image or a work situation.

AI has been one of the weakest links in Amazon’s robust stack of cloud infrastructure services which, incidentally, took the company to the top of the cloud industry due their breadth and depth offered. Meanwhile, tech majors Google, Microsoft and IBM, Amazon’s competitors in the cloud race, already have robust AI platforms that are constantly being upgraded and fine-tuned. Google, for example, has been working on AI for a very long time, and even acquired DeepMind in 2014 to extend their capabilities in a big way. IBM’s strong push into the cloud segment is actually built around Watson, which goes much further and deeper than any of the traditional AI applications we have seen. Microsoft has been working on its own AI platform for many years – can anyone forget the meltdown their chatbot Tay had on Twitter? Amazon Lex Amazon Polly.

In Go parlance it is a “shoulder hit,” in from the side, far away from most of the game’s other action. Across the table, Lee Sedol, the best Go player of the past decade, freezes.

He looks at the 37 stones fanned out across the board, then stands up and leaves. In the commentary room, about 50 feet away, Michael Redmond is watching the game via closed-circuit. “I thought it was a mistake,” says the other English-language commentator, Chris Garlock, vice president of communications for the American Go Association. A few minutes later, Lee walks back into the match room. Forbes Welcome. Take the Poll: What Is AI’s Role in Your Organization? - CIO Journal.

The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) plans to hire hundreds of engineers to staff a main facility in Palo Alto, Calif., near Stanford University, and a second facility located near MIT in Cambridge, Mass. Former DARPA program manager Dr. Gill Pratt, an executive technical advisor at Toyota, was named CEO of TRI, which will begin operations in January. Toyota president Akio Toyoda said in a press conference that the company pursues innovation and new technologies “to make life better for our customers and society as a whole,” adding that he wanted to “work with Gill not just because he’s an amazing researcher and engineer, but because I believe his goals and motivations are the same as ours.”
