Terrapattern is the first open-access visual search engine for satellite maps

Terrapattern is a amazing visual search engine for satellite imagery, and somehow the first of its kind. It's very easy to use, click on a section of the map, and Terrapattern will show you all similar geographical features or landmarks in the area. A football field, bus station, outdoor pool — it doesn't matter, Terrapattern can pinpoint the related image and location with surprising accuracy. The program was created by Golan Levin, David Newbury, and Kyle McDonald, with funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Terrapattern is built on a Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN), and has been trained to recognize geographical features within small squares in four cities — New York, San Fransisco, Pittsburgh, and Detroit.

Ray Kurzweil is building a chatbot for Google

It's based on a novel he wrote, and will be released later this year. He said that anyone will be able to create their own unique chatbot by feeding it a large sample of your writing, for example by letting it ingest your blog. This would allow the bot to adopt your "style, personality, and ideas."
Inventor Ray Kurzweil made his name as a pioneer in technology that helped machines understand human language, both written and spoken. These days he is probably best known as a prophet of The...

Chatbots as the Interface Between Humans and Organizations

Chatbots are getting a lot of attention these days. In this relatively short article, I explain why I think they could end up being a real game-changer when it comes to the way we interact with -- and even think about -- organizations.

#chatbots #artificialintelligence #organizations
The chatbot revolution won't just change the way we interact and communicate with organizations.

Motion AI lets anyone easily build a bot

Motion AI, a Chicago company that lets anyone easily build a bot without touching a line of code, has announced it is open to business after several months of private testing. What, another bot-builder? Dozens of other startups have launched to build bots for developers, especially after Facebook kicked off a bot craze last month that now has tens of thousands of developers building bots on Facebook Messenger alone. But Motion AI stands out because it hand-holds you through building every aspect of the bot’s flow, including deployment across most of the bot platforms (Facebook, Slack, SMS, email, Web and so on). Moreover, it has created what it calls bot “modules,” which package up the logic required for building particular bot features. This saves novices — and even experienced developers — multiple steps. These modules will soon be featured in a store (to be launched in about a month) where customers can take whatever module they need as they put together their bots, according to founder and chief executive David Nelson.

Tech industry jargon has got to improve! The term "Pivot" is constant and so is "social media" but if I hear "SO" as the first word in response to a question one more time, I'm going to halt it with a new Mckinsey-ism. We need new buzz words!
