BrandPost: Moving Toward a Thinking Cloud

I went to IBM InterConnect* this spring, and therersquo;s great newsmdash;the cloud is becoming bigger, faster, and more secure.

And most exciting, itrsquo;s becoming smarter. Wersquo;re working with IBM to combine Intel technologies and expertise with IBM Cloud to create a cloud-native architecture that drives machine efficiency, maximizes resource utilization, and enables the creation of vastly scalable and powerful new applications like artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive computing.Irsquo;ll explain how thatrsquo;s happening, but first let me tell you about bigger, faster, and more secure.

Those are advances you can use today to take control over your data to meet performance, security or data sovereignty regulation, protecting sensitive information in the cloud.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

How to tell if AI or machine learning is real

Suddenly, it seems, every application and cloud service has been fortified with machine learning or artificial intelligence. Presto! They now can do magic.Much of the marketing around machine learning and AI is misleading, making promises that arenrsquo;t realisticmdash;and often using the terms when they donrsquo;t apply.
In other words, therersquo;s a lot of BS being peddled.

Reality check: The state of AI, bots, and smart assistants

Artificial intelligencemdash;in the guises of personal assistants, bots, self-driving cars, and machine learningmdash;is hot again, dominating Silicon Valley conversations, tech media reports, and vendor trade shows.AI is one of those technologies whose promise is resurrected periodically, but only slowly advances into the real world.
I remember the dog-and-pony AI shows at IBM, MIT, Carnegie-Mellon, Thinking Machines, and the like in the mid-1980s, as well as the technohippie proponents like Jaron Lanier who often graced the covers of the erarsquo;s gee-whiz magazine like Omni.[ Learn how to write apps that take full advantage of machine learning: Data in, intelligence out: Machine learning pipelines demystified • Googlersquo;s machine-learning cloud pipeline explained • R and Python drive SQL Server 2017 into machine learning. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorldrsquo;s App Dev Report newsletter. ]AI is an area where much of the science is well established, but the implementation is still quite immature.
