The top artificial intelligence stories of 2016

Artificial intelligence is a phrase on everyone’s lips, but when you think about it, it’s rather hard to define, isn’t it? Turns out people have been trying for a long time, and it has as much to do with how we define thinking as what a computer can actually do. This is an introduction to some of those concepts, though by no means does it settle any of the myriad problems that computer scientists, psychologists and philosophers have been beating their heads against for decades – or centuries.

1.1 What Is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial intelligence, or AI, is the field that studies the synthesis and analysis of computational agents that act intelligently. An agent is something that acts in an environment – it does something. A computational agent is an agent whose decisions about its actions can be explained in terms of computation. The analysis of natural and artificial agents; formulating and testing hypotheses about what it takes to construct intelligent agents; and designing, building, and experimenting with computational systems that perform tasks commonly viewed as requiring intelligence. We actually want to build agents that act intelligently.

Artificial Intelligence

The future will see large parts of our lives influenced by Artificial Intelligence technology. ITU will provide a neutral platform for government, industry and academia to build a common understanding of the capabilities of emerging AI technologies and consequent needs for technical standardization and policy guidance. As part of emeging ICT trends programme, ITU will organize briefings on the topic of “Artificial Intelligence for Good” on:.20 April 2017, from 13:15 to 14:45 in Conference Room 12, UN Headquarters, New York.5 May 2017, from 15:00 to 16:30, in Room C, ITU Headquarters, Geneva. ITU will draw on its global network of ICT experts to propose judges for the XPRIZE scientific advisory board, in addition assisting in the proposition of datasets, test environments and other resources to aid the research of XPRIZE entrants. ITU has created a new LinkedIn group for debate on cutting-edge AI technologies and related ICT applications and services, with the aim of promoting discussion on the future course of AI innovation and its implications for technical standardization and governance.
