Welcome to the May 2018 Newsletter.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are among the top buzzwords in the industry at the moment, and we here at Network Computing are as fascinated by the technology as everyone else. And the good news is that we human employees aren’t all destined for obsolescence due to AI innovations. Well, not yet at any rate. As Ken Gilmour, CTO at invinsec makes clear in his article featured here, while AI is capable of performing certain tasks way beyond our abilities, it’s significantly lacking in other areas – most notably basic common sense. As Ken puts it “AI is not something which can be trusted on its own... AI helps, but do remember that its intelligence is artificial.” AI excels at identifying certain patterns when it comes to, for example, a potential security breach, but it still requires us humans to make sense of those patterns and respond accordingly.

And team members who are proficient in working with AI are set to become highly sought after, as highlighted by David hogan, Senior Director Enterprise at NVIDIA in his article on AI this month. According to David “Building the right team is critical to a successful long-term AI strategy. Investing in a balanced, experienced and talented team allows a business to stand out from the crowd, and attract still more talent.”

AI developments also features in the news this month, with Warwick Business School announcing the launch in July of The Artificial Intelligence Innovation Network (AIIN), an ambitious new project designed to investigate “How artificial intelligence can be used to take on some of the world’s biggest challenges.” With members including the UK Government’s Cabinet Office and NHS University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire, the research network should prove to be one to watch in the months ahead.
