The artificial intelligence on your smartphone is learning and adapting, acting more and more like the human brain, and smartphones are actually beginning to understand more about the language(s) being typed, the person who is typing, and the context in which they are typing. Ben Medlock explains why AI technology is becoming ever more human and why this isn’t cause for concern.
You’ll learn how strides in areas like neural network technology and natural language processing help you meet the challenges in your everyday life, whether they are as simple as writing a text without annoying autocorrect or as complex as communicating as a nonverbal individual. Ben then argues that the key to achieving elusive human-like AI lies in a central piece of the puzzle: embodiment. Join in to learn how the mobile industry and beyond can better understand and support this massive worldwide movement.
