Artificial intelligence is the future of big tech — and is already an integral part of the consumer and enterprise products at Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, and Google.
CB Insights used their data to analyze the AI efforts of the top 10 tech companies in the US by market cap (as of 8/15/2017) and their corporate venture arms. Combined, these companies have invested in 80 artificial intelligence startups, and acquired 50 companies in the last 5 years.
The companies on our list include the corporates below. Note that telecommunications companies such as AT&T or Comcast are not included, and we only include first exits of acquired companies.
The companies we looked at are:
By thinking of atoms as letters and molecules as words, artificial intelligence software from IBM is now employing the same methods computers use to translate languages to predict outcomes of organic chemical reactions, which could speed the development of new drugs.
Researchers at IBM took the kind of AI program normally used to translate languages and applied it toward organic chemistry. "Instead of translating English into German or Chinese, we had the same artificial intelligence technology look at hundreds of thousands or millions of chemical reactions and had it learn the basic structure of the 'language' of organic chemistry, and then had it try to predict the outcomes of possible organic chemical reactions," says study co-author Teodoro Laino at IBM Research in Zurich.
Artificial intelligence isn’t just about state-of-the-art technology. It’s also about people. Smart, curious people in pursuit of “breakthroughs” that will solve complex problems. A researcher working tirelessly to accelerate drug discovery. A startup founder identifying a new way to fight malware. A team of scientists using deep learning to predict hurricanes and help people get out of harm’s way quickly. These are the innovators of the fourth industrial revolution.
This Nvideo Docuseries on the leading AI innovators and how are they reshaping entire industries. This original docuseries explores the world’s greatest artificial intelligence achievements and the people who are making them happen.
Researchers at NASA’s jet propulsion lab, revealed the results of two years spent developing algorithms for autonomous drones using technology also used for spacecraft navigation, funded by Google. The space agency put its AI to the test on October 12, finding that their robot was nimbler and did not get tired like a human pilot.
