CATCH ME IF YOU CAN ISSUE 33: COGNITIONX DATA SCIENCE, AI AND MACHINE LEARNING BRIEFING

 

What would you look like sprinting next to Usain Bolt? Inspired by the sentiment during the Olympics that the events should have one average person compete, our reader Stefano calculated that the average person takes 5.5 seconds longer than the top sprinters in Rio. Use his calculator to see how you would compare.

All the best,

Tabitha ‘AsQuickAsBolt’ Goldstaub

Cyborgs becoming reality

The progress in the field of interfacing human brains and other biological neurons with computers has made huge progress over the last decade (IBM). According to BrainGate Company’s the dream of improving our natural skills with brain implants is about to become reality. “BrainGate Company’s current and planned intellectual property (the technology) is based on technology that can sense, transmit, analyze and apply the language of neurons. BrainGate consists of a sensor that is implanted on the motor cortex of the brain and a device that analyzes brain signals.”

Business Impact of AI

Deep learning’s double lock-in conundrum

AI has made a tremendous impact on the way businesses utilize and handle their data, leading to higher productivity and a higher level of automation. But what does double lock-in mean?
