#Mergersandacquisitions of AI startups increased by a factor of 7 between 2011 and 2015, from 5 to more than 35 deals, according to CB Insights. To date, there have been 24 exit deals with #AI #startups this year, compared to a total of 38 exits that included 2 IPOs in 2015. Most AI startups that were acquired in early stages - within 4 years of initial funding. #Google is leading acquisitions, with around 10 #acquisitions of AI or machine learning startups since 2011. Here's a list of the companies most active in this wave of M&As since 2011, according to CB Insights - #Google, #Twitter, #Apple Inc, #Intel, #Salesforce, #AOL, #IBM, #Yahoo.

Twitter's acquisition of Magic Pony is just the beginning. Silicon Valley's giants are hungry to buy anything in the machine learning space.

Cutting-edge stealth fighter jet, $150 million, getting your ass handed to you by $35 worth of computer #AI horsepower?... Priceless. For everything else, there's #Alpha  son... :)
It’s been said that strapping human pilots into supersonic aircraft will soon become a thing of the past. Between the use of drones and advanced AI that can autonomously fly aircraft without having to deal with G-limits or fatigue, why would the military even bother risking putting human pilots at risk? Well, the folks on the side of Skynet

I know it's a bit of a pain, but it would be better to check the last 24 hours posts at least before posting the same thing for third time...

In the next 5 years, I believe AI will change the world. Few I spoke to had opinions on this thought and few mentioned the blend with another technology will rise AI's future.
According to you will AI be gaining its prominence individually and if yes in which sector or will blend in with other emerging technology...

"For many years, machine learning was considered a specialty, limited to an elite few. That era is over, as recent results indicate that machine learning, powered by “neural nets” that emulate the way a biological brain operates, is the true path towards imbuing computers with the powers of humans, and in some cases, super humans:

If you want to build artificial intelligence into every product, you better retrain your army of coders. Check.

NVIDIA has been a pioneer in accelerating deep learning, and has been developing deep learning software, libraries and tools for a number of years. We spoke to Axel Koehler, Principal Solution Architect at NVIDIA, about the upcoming Machine Intelligence Summit, computing power, deep learning applications and more.

The vid shows an emulation of a massively parallel neuromorphic processor. I have a single NN design that can learn voice/ object recognition/ attention etc. I've started to blend the various working cortex regions into a whole. This is the ‘seed’ from which I grow my AGI designs. It’s getting difficult to edit/ design my large connectomes in 2D, so I wrote a 3D editor so I can fly around inside and edit/ trace them from within.

Edit: Apologies, this should have been shared from my Youtube AI page to my Google+ AI page not this AI community, hence the lack of a description.

See my Youtube or Google page for more info :)

Our world is increasingly shaped by biased algorithms that have been built with little oversight.

This has electric motor so its more quiet than other animal-robots you may have seen. Means it is OK to "run" it inside your home.

AI is software generated "speech" which is much like books and movies in that it can reflect a certain world-view I would think. AI is like a book which can hold a conversation with you. Like those paintings on Harry Potter's walls
