Artificial Intelligence Nanodegree Facilitated by IBM 

IBM Computer Servers

An interesting new development regarding technology education in the field of Artificial Intelligence.

The platform designed for employees that is Udacity, is now in partnership with IBM Watson, which also includes Didi Chuxing and Amazon Alexa, as a result of the partnership there is now a new nanodegree in artificial intelligence,

This new development was announced at the IBM World of Watson conference.

In a context where the input from IBM Watson is incorporated in the curriculum of this new course. Furthermore, with the partnership of the Chinese company Didi Chuxing the goal is to tempt and hire students who will be successful in completing their nanodegrees. In thre framework are also IBM and Amazon Alexa as they will be present on an advisory role to Udacity, so that this new nanodegree course does have a solid foundation with an emphasis as a new AI nanodegree.

As stated by Udacity’s founder Sebastian Thrun, which comes from a background of developing and initiating Google X which produced the now famous self-driving cars. Although this new AI nanodegree is designed for students that already a good knowledge in software development.

Also IBM’s Rob High, from IBM Watson, stated that this new nanodegree "should teach students to build apps or platforms using game playing and search, logic and planning, computer vision and natural language processing, among other things." 

In the context of ethical considerations in artificial intelligence, its was also stated: “No. There’s a lot of fear mongering these days in the AI field. AI is not about to take over or destroy the world. Instead, it’s going to free us of repetitive mindless work. Say you are doing an office job and every day you do the same thing. At some point an AI watching you will make you one hundred times more efficient at your job, and it will free up a lot of your time. I think AI is to the human mind what the steam engine was to the human body…I see this as positive news for the world.”

The Udacity AI Nanodegree is comprised of two, 13-week terms, which will start in early 2017. Currently, the curriculum is not yet finalised, and there is still the possibility of artificially intelligent apps to help teachers do their work,

Adorable Cute Kittens Pictures

We have collected adorable cute pictures of kittens for the enjoyment of our visitors and readers. A kitten (also known as a kitty or kitty cat) is a juvenile cat. After being born, kittens are totally dependent on their mother for survival and do not normally open their eyes until after seven to ten days.

After about two weeks, kittens quickly develop and begin to explore the world outside the nest. After a further three to four weeks, they begin to eat solid food and grow adult teeth. Domestic kittens are highly social animals and enjoy human companionship. Source.

Webmasters and keen followers of the news will all have been aware of the latest update from Google, which was launched on 21st April.

Mobile apps are 24/7
Imagine a world where you can guarantee top class customer service around the clock, without having to rely on cumbersome call centres. Of course, this is not to discount the obvious benefits of human contact, but the advantages of a mobile app are that a customer can log on at a time that is co…
