Elon Musk launches a new venture Neuralink

If what he was already doing wasn’t big enough, the eclectic entrepreneur Elon Musk has taken up yet another daunting challenge, this time it’s to develop a human-computer interface. Neuralink, a company founded by Musk is developing an implantable human-computer interface such as a neural lace. Musk has hinted at the existence of Neuralink a few times over the last six months or so. More recently, Musk told a crowd in Dubai, “Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence.” He added that “it’s


Application of Machine Learning to IoT can change our World Forever

Machine Learning (ML) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are huge buzzwords right now, and they’re both near the peak of the hype cycle.(Graph is given below) but is Machine learning worth all the hype? Yes, it is, from the early applications of ML to IoT, it’s benefits are humungous. ‍Gartner’s 2016 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies — Machine Learning is at the very peak of the hype cycle, with IoT Platform and other related IoT technologies on the up-slope.  If you just include “machine learning” in your pitch you can

The Story Behind Azure only Windows Server on ARM

A couple of months after announcing that Windows 10 will be available on ARM laptops based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 when the Creators Update launches this spring, Microsoft also revealed that it has been trying out ARM servers in its Azure data centers and is planning to use them for some very specific production workloads. That doesn’t mean you should expect Microsoft to be shipping Windows Server for ARM any time soon — if at all. “We’re optimizing [ARM servers] for data center use, not just for the generation coming


Will Artificial Intelligence Replace Writers in the Future ?

A lot has been talked about driverless cars, automation of high-skilled jobs like law & medicine etc. One another field which has been pivotal to our communication has been “Writing/Content Writing” Research firm, Gartner predicts that a full 20 percent of the business content will be written by machines starting in 2018. This indeed is a startling claim.The firm further adds “Business content, such as shareholder reports, legal documents, market reports, press releases, articles and white papers, are all candidates for automated writing tools.”   Gartner predicts that a full 20 percent of

NEC Corp. announced on Monday it will set up a security operations center in California under its Infosec Corp. affiliate. The initiative adds to teams in Japan and Europe, allowing NEC to run a “follow the sun” operation, similar to that deployed by others in the field. Importantly, it makes the Japanese company just that little bit more global and helps to add Asia to the conversation on IT security providers.

DARPA plan would reinvent not-so-clever machine learning systems | DARPA || Machine Learning

Machine learning systems maybe are smart but they have a lot to discover. Innovative researchers with DARPA hope to achieve superior machine learning systems with a new program called Lifelong Learning Machines (L2M) which has as its primary goal to develop next-generation machine learning technologies that can learn from new situations and apply that learning to become better and more reliable than currently constrained systems. “Life is by definition unpredictable. It is impossible for programmers to anticipate every problematic or surprising situation that might arise, which means existing ML systems
