What is Prolog?
A. is an opening to a story that establishes the context and gives background details, often some earlier story that ties into the main one. OR B. is a high-level computer programming language first devised for artificial intelligence applications. Of course its B. But, what REALLY IS Prolog? There are different approaches to software development other than […]
The (current) White House Weighs in on AI Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality
On October 12th the White House released Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence, its report on the opportunities, considerations and challenges of Artificial Intelligence (AI). And we’re still waiting on the release date for the Preparing for the Future of Intelligent Politicians report. Cue the rimshot, please. The 58-page report follows public-outreach conducted by the White House’s Office of […]
Apple’s Swift Programming Language – a Primer
Swift is best known as Apple’s new language for iOS and macOS (formerly OS X) software development. It’s a good general-purpose language, though, and well-suited for low-level systems programming. Apple has made its compiler and libraries open source, and it has created a website just for Swift. It could compete with Rust, Go, and other […]
Elon Musk’s Solution to the Problem of Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality
To say that Elon Musk is a genius most likely qualifies as an understatement. Not only is he a world-renowned technologist, but he’s founded SpaceX, OpenAI, Tesla, SolarCity and X.com (which eventually became Paypal). So, when Musk dedicates his notable brainpower to warning us that an A.I.apocalypse could become reality within the next 5-10 years, it’s hard not to listen. You might even look at Siri […]
AI – Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality: Opening the Pod Bay Doors
Who among us hasn’t quoted Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey to Siri, demanding that she “open the pod bay doors.” So omnipresent in the human consciousness is misbehaving Artificial Intelligence, that Apple anticipated the request, programming Siri to respond back in kind. And as technology’s rapid growth has made a nonfiction version of HAL seem […]
AI – Artificial Intelligence how it works today
Did you know that every time you do a search you are writing a computer program using AI Artificial Intelligence? Think about it, a computer program is a set of algorithms that tell a computer what to do. So, when you ask Google to look up something for you, you are asking it to follow a […]
Parsey McParseface: What is it?
Despite the silly name, Parsey McParseface is highly advanced linguistic software. The new language parsing model uses SyntaxNet’s neural network framework and algorithms to analyze the syntax and structure of a sentence. It is essentially like a toddler still learning to speak his native tongue, but Google rates it as being 94 percent accurate. This is much […]
Which “Big Data”-base should you use?
Here is a look at some “big data” databases and why they are used. When we talk about “big data,” we aren’t just talking about large amounts of data. We’re talking about lots of somewhat unruly data that doesn’t easily fall into the precisely defined tables of relational databases. NoSQL databases are popular choices when […]
Do you know the 13 types of IoT Analytics?
Analytics is the inevitable game changer in today’s data-driven business and IoT world. Its impact is across fields – sports, banking, automotive, healthcare and government. Analytics is the ability to collect and use raw data to generate actionable insights that helps to arrive at informed fact-based decision-making. Data from every aspect of our life is […]
