5 Things You Had No Clue AI Could Do for You

5 Things You Had No Clue AI Could Do for You

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here to replace all of mankind: this statement is quintessentially the hallmark of the pessimism of our generation – and for good reasons, actually. Not only is it poised to take over more than 40% of all jobs in the next 10 years, AI has made it possible to fall in love with an entity without a soul. Heck; forget about the fruit of good and evil – because of the insane advancements of AI, robots are even able to discern what’s morally right and wrong. Yet, our world today is enriched by AI in countless…

#MakeWhatsNext: DigiGirlz 2018, Empowering Girls To Pursue Careers In STEM

The World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report finds that gender parity is still over 200 years away, and while we know that gender parity won’t happen overnight – the good news is that across the world, women are making positive gains day by day. In view of this, Microsoft has partnered with Grab, Johnson & Johnson, LinkedIn, and Shell to launch this year’s DigiGirlz 2018 – and aptly so on March 8, which is International Women’s Day. Given women’s current low participation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), and for women not to be left out of…

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group today announced the release of PostgreSQL 10, the latest version of the world’s most advanced open source database.

Go Masters, Chatbots, and Imitation Poetry: The Current State of AI

Go Masters, Chatbots, and Imitation Poetry: The Current State of AI

Remember J.A.R.V.I.S. from the “Iron Man” franchise? While we can dream of having such a futuristic personal assistant, the fact is it’s already there in your hands. It’s a lot less exciting, but it’s all… in your phone. What does J.A.R.V.I.S. do that Siri/Cortana/Google Now can also? Remind you of important dates and meetings? Check. Dictate and send out an e-mail? Check. Compile a list of people who could be The Mandarin? …Probably. Artificial Intelligence (AI for short) refers to machines or software that can intelligently assess its environment and subsequently perform actions to complete specific tasks. That definition alone…

Welcome to Tech Brief, your weekly wrap-up on all that’s happened in the tech and startup industries this week!  THIS WEEK, WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE TRAITOR THAT IS INSTAGRAM. THAT IS ALL.

Wrong. I’m not entirely sure where they plucked that observation that “people miss on average 70 percent of their feeds”…
Innovation, Education & Charity: Microsoft’s We Tech Care 2016

Innovation, Education & Charity: Microsoft’s We Tech Care 2016

Last Saturday saw President Tony Tan Keng Yam officially launch the 16th President’s Challenge at Microsoft’s We Tech Care 2016. Held at JTC LaunchPad @ one-north, it was a little different from last year’s gig, which Microsoft held in its One Marina Boulevard headquarters. This year, Microsoft has made good on its mission in wanting to empower every person (and organisation) on the planet to achieve more: focusing the spotlight less on what Microsoft does, and more on how the local IT industry and Tech ecosystem as a whole can create a smarter, more inclusive Singapore. While fundraising is obviously a core topic in any charity…
