Everyday AI.

Headlines, subject lines, and business publications all say that AI is embedded in every product or service, and will be found in more as time goes on (yes, these statements are contradictory). Prove it! I’m going on a quest to see where I can find AI enabled, embedded or otherwise utilized in products. At least, this is how this post… Read More »Everyday AI.

Re-understanding AI chatBOTs.

Thanks to an astute colleague1, I have a new understanding of chatGPT and its chatBOT, natural language generative relatives (sisters by different parents). This AI stuff isn’t as smart as I thought.  I was under the impression that chatGPT produced answers to queries based on being able to eloquently parse information from a bucket of sources. It’s advantage was the… Read More »Re-understanding AI chatBOTs.

If an AI Wrote my Christmas Letter…

The GUIey Middle of Artificial Intelligence

The basic premise of artificial intelligence, to use enormous amounts of data to find out new things, is easy to grasp. If any one of us had the time and stamina to study a million photos or stories about a thing, I’m sure we’d come up with insights about it too.  Business products emerging from current applications of artificial intelligence… Read More »The GUIey Middle of Artificial Intelligence

How Smart is Artificial Intelligence?

Cyberspace isn’t much like space at all. It’s crammed full of bytes of information, churning and frothing with intelligence agents who gnash and dissect the data in search of new knowledge, or at least something else to sell us. This is big data and at least one embodiment of artificial intelligence. Recently, I heard an elegant explanation¹ of machine learning,… Read More »How Smart is Artificial Intelligence?
