Intel’s Diane Bryant on How AI Will Change Lives

In this video from SXSW, Diane Bryant from Intel presents: AI – How Tech’s Next Revolution Will Change Lives.

“Artificial Intelligence will deliver the next wave of societal transformation on parallel with the industrial, technical and internet revolutions that preceded it. As our AI-fueled future evolves, we have a tremendous opportunity to address opportunities from scare resource utilization and scientific exploration to inclusion and human rights expansion. Intel Executive VP Diane Bryant will share Intel’s vision for unleashing AI as well as a perspective on how to accelerate the delivery of #AIforgood.”

In her discussion, AI: How Tech’s Next Revolution Will Change Lives, Bryant outlined several examples of how AI is poised to usher in a better world and how Intel technology and programs are helping unlock AI’s potential.

  • Feeding the Hungry. Bryant discussed how AI can help enhance food production. She introduced FarmLogs and its cutting-edge farm management software that provides timely, actionable and unbiased field insights and recommendations to help growers effortlessly and remotely achieve optimal yield. Ultimately, the product’s aim is to increase field profitability and eliminate waste.
  • The Way We Work. Bryant also covered how AI can benefit the workplace by introducing Clinc, an innovative AI startup that developed Finie, a customizable, voice-activated personal financial assistant and intelligence platform for banks. Using a sophisticated natural language processing engine and advanced scientific discoveries in AI research, Finie emulates human intelligence and allows users to converse with their bank account to complete banking tasks in their own natural language with no special keywords, rule-based commands or templated questions to learn.

These are just two examples of how Intel is engaged through its technology and programs to help unlock AI’s potential. Intel has introduced the Intel Nervana platform as the foundation for highly-optimized AI solutions, enabling more data professionals to solve the world’s biggest challenges on industry standard technology. Intel believes that the combination of Intel’s customized silicon offering plus optimized software frameworks will unleash the next wave of AI development in everything from smart factories to sports to autonomous cars.

According to Bryant, Intel has the assets and know-how required to drive the AI computing transformation, creating even greater impact for business and society.
