Astronomical research (which I just posted a blog article on) is one area where AI and machine learning are revolutionizing the field. Here's a recent article with more examples:

If the interest in Hadoop is platooning is there something on the horizon that will be the next best thing?

I think the advances will keep coming given the level of interest being generated by events like this.

The attention to AI and machine learning is timely.

Gartner, also, has identified AI and advanced machine learning as one of the top 10 technology trends for 2017, encompassing many other technologies including deep learning, neural networks, natural-language processing, and others.



 

The developments in AI and machine learning are among the most exciting developments of our era. While it's prudent to realize that these can have sinister implications in sinister hands, it's also important to recognize that they can offer very beneficial oppotunities in beneficent hands. I think we'd all rather have R2D2 than the Terminator.

From both the thread on chess tournaments (including the involvement of kids) and this one I'm reminded of the emergence of computerized chess (since the 1950s, but available for the general public since about the 1980s), which surely is one of the early examples of very rudimentary AI-like technology.

We are starting to see some big advances in A.I. and marchine learning.  For example Google is using A.I. to diagnose breast cancer earilier and more accurately.  Is there anything Google isn't doing?  IBM is working on similiar technologies. 

I think we are going to be living in a very different world in about 10 years.

It may be impossible to predict the perfect bracket, but these academics have managed to predict perfectly the "at large" bids that were included in the March Madness NCAA college basketball tournament this year and with 96% accuracy over the last 6 years.
It's time for the annual college basketball tournament known as March Madness. Did you use analytics to inform your bracket choices?
Will analytics become a basic part of every college and university curriculum? What will the next generation of workers know about analytics, and what new skills are tomorrow's analysts studying today?
Consumer connected devices may get the big headlines, but business and industrial Internet of Things or IoT has gained momentum. A driving force behind its adoption is edge analytics.
