AI Rising – CF052
This week on Cyber Frontiers we catch up on the lingo defining the technology frontier word cloud in 2019. Everyday we increasingly hear the phrase “we can do this now because of artificial intelligence (AI).” It’s showing up in product literature, super bowl ads, you name it! But is it really AI? How did we get to the new hype curve so quickly? We parse out the journey of the buzz from the year of cyber (2017), to the year of machine learning (2018), to what is rapidly shaping up as the year of artificial intelligence (2019). We hop on the buzzword express to usher in the new year and take the plunge into what society deems the course for artificial machines and intelligence.
Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future! Christian Johnson will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.

The Verge’s Take on the State of AI in 2019:
“Kai-Fu Lee, a venture capitalist and former AI researcher, describes the current moment as the “age of implementation” — one where the technology starts “spilling out of the lab and into the world.” Benedict Evans, another VC strategist, compares machine learning to relational databases, a type of enterprise software that made fortunes in the ‘90s and revolutionized whole industries, but that’s so mundane your eyes probably glazed over just reading those two words.”
