1. Artificial intelligence is evolving all by itself
Artificial intelligence (AI) is evolving—literally. Researchers have created software that borrows concepts from Darwinian evolution, including “survival of the fittest,” to build AI programs that improve generation after generation without human input. The program replicated decades of AI research in a matter of days, and its designers think that one day, it could discover new approaches to AI.

3. How A.I. is aiding the coronavirus fight
On the last day of 2019, an artificial intelligence warning system run by Toronto startup BlueDot flagged a news report from China about a mysterious pneumonia strain in the city of Wuhan. The system, which sifts through 100,000 articles and online posts daily in 65 languages, alerted BlueDot’s human employees, who immediately saw parallels to the deadly SARS outbreak in 2003.

4. Don’t expect AI to solve the coronavirus crisis on its own
Scientists are exploring every possible option for help battling the coronavirus pandemic, and artificial intelligence represents an intriguing avenue. AI has been used to search for new molecules capable of treating Covid-19, to scan through lung CTs for signs of Covid-related pneumonia, and to aid the epidemiologists who tracked the disease’s spread early on.

5. A Radical Solution to Scale AI Technology
Most C-suite executives know they need to integrate AI capabilities to stay competitive, but too many of them fail to move beyond the proof of concept stage. They get stuck focusing on the wrong details or building a model to prove a point rather than solve a problem. That’s concerning because, according to our research, three out of four executives believe that if they don’t scale AI in the next five years, they risk going out of business entirely.
