I’ve written two articles this month about government policy towards AI. The first is about “Turning Point”, a book by a couple of leads at the Brookings Institution, and a nifty webinar interview with the authors. The second is about a report and webinar driven by the Bipartisan Policy Center. The book was excellent, the report not so much. Even with different results, it is important to note that folks in the Beltway are beginning to speak out on the issue.
I’ve started what should be a four part series in my Management AI subset of Forbes articles. I’m using Lomit Patel’s “Lean AI” as a driving to describe the four main types of AI algorithms. See the link on my articles page.
Links to three new articles are over on my articles page. They are about broadband (on LinkedIn) and then a couple of AI related articles on Forbes.com.
I don’t think I’ll be publishing on Forbes as often. They just took away pay from less frequent posters. We didn’t make much money anyway, but I certainly wouldn’t make enough to justify trying to publish the number of articles I’d have to in order to make any money in the new method. The benefits don’t justify the time spent or the drop in quality that pumping out that many articles would create.
If I was a journalist full time, that might make sense, but I earn my money through content writing and marketing consulting. I’ll keep writing for Forbes, it’s fun; but perhaps not as often.
I have a couple of new articles on forbes.com that I’ve posted this month. One is on software to help lawyers analyze a case based on similar cases and another discusses the fun that is AI recreating the closeness between hardware and software that was around decades ago. Hardware companies are very involved in providing software to help developers use complex chipsets. Check my articles page or my forbes.com profile.
And, of course, as soon as I post an article that mentions acquisitions, there’s a question of another one. Therefore: Intel Acquires Artificial Intelligence Chip Maker Habana for $2 Billion
Earlier this month, an article about GPUs being used for AI processing was published on Tech Target. In that article, I discuss how the structure of a GPU aids in the running of neural networks.
Recent news about a Microsoft AI investment led me to my latest forbes.com column covering the idea that it’s not always innovators that win. Fast followers can do a good job.
In a move joining the children of two famous early tech companies, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced they are going to acquire Cray Inc. It’s a smart move, but it brings a bit of nostalgia to my emotions. Read my latest Forbes.com article.
