ISB, Microsoft to set up artificial intelligence digital Lab

The Financial Express | August 28, 2019

Artificial Intelligence (AI) spans every major industry and is likely to dramatically transform industries. With better algorithms and large amounts of data, AI has the potential to perhaps outperform human decision-making. Performance differentials between firms on account of their proficiency with AI will also likely intensify over the coming years and will shake up most industries. “AI is a gamechanger to drive new business models and transform today’s businesses and workplaces,” remarks Anant Maheshwari, president, Microsoft India. Taking a cue, the Indian School of Business (ISB) and Microsoft India have inked a new partnership to take forward their shared vision for an AI-empowered India. Through the creation of the AI Digital Lab, the two organisations will collaborate in research which will use AI and Machine Learning (ML) to study issues that are relevant for business and public policy. In addition, the partnership will also introduce a new executive programme titled “Leading Business Transformation in the Age of AI” in October 2019 which will equip business leaders with tools and strategies to transform their respective organisations to AI-driven organisations.

Seagate Selects Juniper Networks’ AI-driven Enterprise Solution

Juniper Networks | December 20, 2022

Juniper Networks , a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, today announced that Seagate Technology® selected Juniper’s full stack AI-driven enterprise portfolio, encompassing Wi-Fi, wired access switching and SD-WAN, complementing its existing solutions in supporting the data storage leader’s evolving business needs. The Juniper solution, driven by Mist AI and the cloud, offers Seagate proactive automation and unique client-to-cloud insight, as well as optimized performance and cost savings in key areas of their IT infrastructure. Seagate, a world leader in mass-data storage infrastructure solutions, has multiple sites in 18 countries that share a vast amount of data. As a way of decreasing network costs and optimizing the performance of key applications between these locations, Seagate is moving from a traditional MPLS network to Juniper’s AI-driven SD-WAN solution. Juniper’s unique tunnel-less SD-WAN architecture can help reduce Seagate’s telco and hosting costs, which is ideal for high bandwidth activities like data transfers. It also has differentiated Session Smart Routing, which optimizes network performance for low latency applications like Voice over IP, enabling Seagate to replace their previous telephony infrastructure. Lastly, the entire Juniper AI-driven enterprise portfolio is managed via a common Juniper Mist cloud and AI engine, which simplifies management and can lower operational costs via proactive automation, insight and assurance. “Our evaluation of various solutions found that the Juniper AI-driven SD-WAN with Session Smart Routing had the highest throughput and yielded the best results for our key use cases. “Plus, we like the fact that we can leverage a single Juniper Mist cloud and AI engine across our entire campus and branch portfolio. While we are starting with SD-WAN, we are looking forward to getting the same simplified operations and cost savings across our wired and wireless access networks, as well.” Vinod Pasi, VP and global head of infrastructure at Seagate “By taking a cloud-first, AI-driven and session smart approach to networking, Juniper enables customers like Seagate to have the agility, scale and performance needed to keep pace with evolving business demands,” said Sujai Hajela, EVP, AI-driven Enterprise at Juniper Networks. “We are excited to deliver a world-class, experience-first network that optimizes end-user and operator while reducing total cost of ownership." About Juniper Networks Juniper Networks is dedicated to dramatically simplifying network operations and driving superior experiences for end users. Our solutions deliver industry-leading insight, automation, security and AI to drive real business results. We believe that powering connections will bring us closer together while empowering us all to solve the world’s greatest challenges of well-being, sustainability and equality.

Originality.AI Launches the First AI Tool Available to Detect Content Created by Popular AI Writing Tools

Originality.AI | December 06, 2022

With the proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI) writing tools publishers are concerned that the content being created by their writers is AI-generated and not original work. The problem is that Google has made it clear, AI-generated content, without the addition of extra value, is against their policies. Google states “content that's been generated programmatically without producing anything original” is against their policies which means it may rank lower in results or not appear at all. The team at Originality.AI is excited to announce the creation and launch of the world's first AI that is built and trained to predict when a block of text has been created by any of the popular AI tools (covering the natural language processing (NLP) models GPT-2, GPT-NEO, GPT-J and OpenAI’s latest GPT-3). “It is important for publishers to know when the content they are publishing may be created by humans and not AI tools,” said Jonathan Gillham, Founder of Originality.AI. “Until now that has not been possible. We think of the AI built at Originality.AI to be the good version of the Terminator – AI working for our benefit to detect other AI-generated content.” A recent study showed that Originality.AI was successfully able to detect AI-generated content by several of the most popular tools including Jasper.AI, Rytr.me and WriteSonic.com. “Our model is able to detect content generated by the most popular NLP API’s with an accuracy of 94.06% for GPT-3, 94.14% for GPT-J and 95.64% for GPT-Neo.” Conor Watt, Lead Developer at Originality.AI Originality.AI was created based in part on the experience the team had running a content marketing agency that was sold in 2022. “We wanted to be able to provide publishers data showing that the content they were going to publish is truly original,” said Gillham. “For us “original” simply means both free from plagiarism and created by a human, not a bot.” In addition to Originality.AI’s AI detection, it has a robust plagiarism detection module with features that publishers who manage a team need but are not currently available. This includes a dashboard, team management, complete website scans and team history.
