Pursuing the Next Level of Artificial Intelligence

Today, The New York Times published in its section of technology, a nice article about Artificial Intelligence, entitled Pursuing the Next Level of Artificial Intelligence.

It is about the work of Daphne Koller, a researcher at Stanford University, in the field of Artificial Intelligence.

I think Artificial Intelligence is one of the most fields of research nowadays, and its advance is amazing in the last years.

In Business Intelligence and Performance Management, the AI together its relationed fields of study, mainly Machine Learning and Data Mining, will leverage the predictive analysis.

In this article, you can notice the power of Google, when Daphne said that many of her graduate students have gone to work at Google, although she tries to persuade undergraduates to stay in academia; and also when she said: “My husband still berates me for not having jumped on the Google bandwagon at the beginning”.

After all, Peter Norvig, a famous research of AI, is Director of Research of Google.

For those interested in AI, Peter Norvig and Stuart Russell wrote a very good book: Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach (2nd Edition)
