    Microsoft experimenting with next tech trend: AI and machine learning


    Microsoft is determined not to miss out on artificial intelligence (AI), the next big trend in technology that will, over time, filter into how everyone uses hardware, software, and the internet.

    Unlike mobile, which the company missed (and continues to miss) by a mile, Microsoft has been working hard to get on top of AI, both in terms of research and integrating it into products.

    One of the main reasons Microsoft has had so much success in AI research so far is down to Microsoft Research, the 1,000-strong arm of the company that deals specifically in scientific research, even if it isn’t part of Microsoft’s core business.

    The top scientists at Microsoft Research made a list of predictions for 2016 and many of them focus on AI as a big trend for the coming year, showing that it’s a big focus for the company.

    Elsewhere Microsoft’s thinking has swayed towards AI, including a series of high-profile acquisitions and a whole section of the company — called Garage — dedicated to building apps, many of which have artificial intelligence or machine learning built-in.

    All of these acquisitions add knowledge to the Microsoft teams and bring products that bear the company’s name onto devices, especially those made by Apple or that run Android.

    Microsoft has been working hard to keep up with Google, and others when it comes to AI. In the future, this could be one of the battlegrounds from which technology companies either win or lose customers. Here are the ways Microsoft is competing...

    It will be interesting when Cortana can pass the Turing test.

    What is the Turing test?
    In artificial intelligence (AI), the Turing Test is a method for determining whether or not a computer is capable of thinking like a human. The test is named after Alan Turing, an English mathematician who pioneered artificial intelligence during the 1940s and 1950s, and who is credited with devising the original version of the test. According to this kind of test, a computer is deemed to have artificial intelligence if it can mimic human responses under specific conditions. In Turing's test, if the human being conducting the test is unable to consistently determine whether an answer has been given by a computer or by another human being, then the computer is considered to have "passed" the test.

    remind me to Ex Machina movie .... just make sure make the AI dont have "intention" LOL

    anyway imo still long way to make a perfect AI, i mean to make an AI that think just like human but without "bad side"
    plus the model seems people making nowdays is like a core that gathering data not only from user but internet
    and those in internet can be another problem if the logic cannot filtered the good and bad things

    but i looking forward AI that more like JARVIS ... digital personal assistance

    From the Horses Mouth:
    Microsoft is making the tools that its own researchers use to speed up advances in artificial intelligence available to a broader group of developers by releasing its Computational Network Toolkit on GitHub.


    The researchers developed the open-source toolkit, dubbed CNTK, out of necessity. Xuedong Huang, Microsoft’s chief speech scientist, said he and his team were anxious to make faster improvements to how well computers can understand speech, and the tools they had to work with were slowing them down.


    So, a group of volunteers set out to solve this problem on their own, using a homegrown solution that stressed performance over all else.
    The effort paid off.

    Well it was either Google or Amazon, forget which that just got permission from the US Gov. to start testing their Driverless cars.
    That's going to be strange thing to see going down the road.....car with nobody in it, passes you.

    Google has been testing driverless cars. One even got pulled over for going to slow. No ticket was issued.
