My summary of Rob’s insights Learn more from the interview itself, below. Too many companies confuse consumer-grade and business-grade AI. Companies have…
In AI systems training, a report has it that over a seven-year period algorithmic efficiency has increased three times faster than Moore’s Law.

Should we be patient given disappointing AI implementation rates? Is AI smart enough? What can we learn from fruit fly brains? What else should you know about facial recognition technology? How are Google, Microsoft, Amazon, IBM, and FaceBook progressing on their AI work? How valuable is AI to FinTech? What other newsletters are in the works?

A major advance in mapping the connectome (anatomy) of the fruit fly’s brain shows us how far away we are from being able to describe the fine-grained physiology of the human brain. Watch out for deceptive metaphors like learning, intelligence, cognition and Kurzweil’s Singularity.
Predictions of things past are far easier than predictions of the future. Most predictions are more likely wrong than right. Learn from that experience.
Despite limitations, voice enablement will become ubiquitous.
By 2025, Industrial robots will become a target of “bad actors” seeking to disrupt manufacturing and production.
