The AI Community for the People, by the People

The AI Community for the People, by the People

Three years ago, our first website went live!

Since then, our platform has grown tremendously and we’ve created a complete ecosystem for the sharing of AI knowledge.

One special highlight of this community-wide engagement is the AI Awards, which have been a huge success on a global scale. The ‘Oscars of the AI tech world’ and the only independent AI Awards, we have awarded 27 winners in previous years. To celebrate the Awards’ third year, we have created a bigger programme of events to lead-up to December’s ceremony. Nominations are still open, with an impressive 53 award categories of awards. Judging and showcases will take place at various locations over the coming month so get your entries in ASAP!

The purpose and focus of Informed.AI will always be the same: to enable people to learn more about artificial intelligence and to make the subject more accessible for everyone. Essentially, we support the AI Community and are always looking for ways to widen our scope, coverage, accessibility and appeal.

The past three years have been an amazing journey. On a practical level, we’ve added more functionality to into.AI (previously homeAI.info), creating a number supporting sites for specific parts of the ecosystem (see below for a full breakdown). But by far the most enjoyable part has been meeting so many people and helping them to engage better with the wider AI community.

We have always recognised the importance of keeping our site users happy and welcome feedback and comments from anyone using the platform. Just last month we held our first AI RoundTable, which provided incredibly valuable feedback on how to further enhance the ecosystem. We’ll be implementing a lot of these suggestions over the coming months, so stay tuned…

It’s been beyond encouraging to witness the organic growth of our users over the past three years:

  • We now have close to 1,000 visitors per day from every country across the world
  • Our Neurons professional network has hit 6,000 members, with 25 groups in 15 countries, and is growing every week
  • We have many thousands of followers on our social media channels and newsletters.

We have a brilliant network of volunteers who enable us to do so much. These include chapter leaders of the meetup groups, judges for the annual achievement awards, and the dedicated central team that support me on many other tasks and plans.

This truly is a community for the people, run by the people. I am so proud to be part of it.

I want to thank you all for being part of the Informed.AI network and ask that you continue to share with you friends and colleagues and help us make this the best and biggest AI community out there.   

Andy Pardoe 

The site we launched three years ago has grown into a number of sites that form the complete AI ecosystem:

INTO.AI

Recently rebranded from homeAI.info to align with other .AI domains and to more clearly tell our story.

We want to thank everyone for their continued involvement. We are always looking for contributors to submit stories, press releases and thought-leadership articles. Sharing your news and views is an intrinsic part of the ecosystem so please keep submitting your news!

We also have a regular spotlight for AI companies/start-ups who want to showcase their new products. This is a totally free promotional tool. Individuals can also submit content for this – we have book authors, for example.NEW! We are now also creating our own unique stories, articles and papers. This exclusive content will also be shared as part of our newsletters so please sign up if you haven’t already

AWARDS.AI

The official website of the AI Awards, where you can place your nominations and learn about previous winners.

Nominations for the 2018 awards are open until July 15th. Please use the form on Awards.AI  to submit.

Awards.AI is the first and biggest global annual achievement awards for artificial intelligence. Our focus is to support the AI community by recognising and celebrating the hard work and dedication of those working in this field.

Award Showcases will be held between September and November – these give shortlisted nominees the opportunity to demonstrate their technology to the public and judging panel. Confirmed Showcase dates can be found at Awards.ai/programme. Award winners will be announced at a ceremony in London in December and tickets for this event will be on sale from September.

NEURONS.AI

A Professional Network for AI Practitioners and Researchers.

Growing steadily in size, this is a mix of both online and offline interactions, with meetups, forums, user blogs and messaging. This platform facilitates knowledge sharing between organisations, allowing us all to benefit from the open developments of this field.

We have over 20 Chapters in 15 countries around the world, with more being added every month.

If you would like to lead a chapter in your city, please let us know.

EVENTS.AI

VOCATION.AI

A career portal and jobs board to support key areas of development.

One of the key issues highlighted by the Royal Society report on Machine Learning was the potential skills gap this industry is facing. Obviously there isn’t a single solution to this, but we hope that into.AI – from a training and education perspective – and Vocation.AI- from a career/jobs perspective – will help to support the development needed over the coming years.

Updated with a fresh, new design, we are looking to partner with agencies and companies to list opportunities. Candidates can also post their profiles and CVs online.

SHOWCASE.AI

With our first AI RoundTable being a successful event, we are planning to host more in the coming months.

We have plans to host a Summit later this year, plus our Quarterly Showcase events – providing Online Live Demonstrations of AI Products, Frameworks and Tools. We are also planning to hosting an Annual UnConference for Researchers to better share ideas and receive feedback- more on this soon!

Celebrating Three Years of the Informed.AI Group

Celebrating Three Years of the Informed.AI Group

Three years ago, our first website went live. 

 The purpose and focus of Informed.AI has always been, and still is, to enable people to learn more artificial intelligence, making the subject more accessible to everyone. Essentially Supporting the AI Community. 

Since the first website, our platform has grown tremendously, creating a complete ecosystem and platform for the sharing of AI knowledge. 

The past three years have been an amazing journey, adding more functionality to into.AI (previously called homeAI.info) creating a number supporting sites for specific parts of the ecosystem. But the most enjoyable part of this for us has always been meeting people and helping them to engage better with the wider AI community. 

Even in those early days, we appreciated the importance of keeping the users of the sites happy, always open to feedback and comments from those using the platform. In-fact only last month, we held our first AI RoundTable, which provided much valuable feedback and suggestions on how to make the ecosystem better, many of which we will be implementing over the coming months.

Over the three years, our user base has demonstrated wonderfully encouraging organic growth. We now have close to 1,000 visitors per day to our websites from every country across the world. 6,000 members are part of our Neurons professional network with 25 groups in 15 countries and this is expanding on a weekly basis, and with nearly 100,000 followers of our various social media channels, and several thousand people subscribing to our various newsletters. 

We also have a great network of volunteers, from the chapter leaders of the various meetup groups, to the judges for the for annual achievement awards, and the central team that support me on many other tasks and plans.

This is truly a community for the people, run by the people, and it makes me so proud to be part of it.

I want to thank you all for being part of the community and ask that you share with you friends and colleagues and help us make this the best and biggest AI community. 

The one site we launched three years ago, has grown into a number of sites, that forms the complete AI ecosystem, as shown below:

into.AI

We recently rebranded from homeAI.info, wanting to align with our other .AI domains, and make it a bit more obvious what we are all about. 

We want to thank everyone for their continued involvement. We are always looking for contributors, to submit stories, press releases and thought leadership articles. Sharing your news and thoughts is all part what this ecosystems is designed for, so please don’t hesitate to submit your news on our platform. 

We are now also creating our own unique stories, articles and papers, which we hope you will enjoy. This exclusive content will also be shared as part of our newsletters.

We have a regular spotlight for those AI companies / startups that want to showcase their new products to the community. Totally free method of promoting yourselves. We have also featured individuals who have authored books for example. 

Awards.AI

The AI Awards, have been a huge success on a global scale, we have already awarded 27 winners of the AI Awards. Having now entered our third year, we are making it a much bigger programme of events throughout the year. Currently still open for nominations, across 53 categories of awards, the judging and showcases will occurring in the coming months at various locations, with the awards ceremony happening in early December. 

This is the Oscars of the AI tech world, the only independent AI Awards. 

Neurons.AI and Chapters.Neurons.AI

We continue to grow our Professional Network for AI Practitioners and Researchers call Neurons. This is a mix of both online and offline interactions, with meetups, forums, user blogs and messaging. This platform allows us to facilitate the knowledge sharing between organisations, allowing us all to benefit from the open developments of this field. 

We have over twenty Chapters in 15 countries around the world, and continue to grow the number every month.

If you would like to lead a chapter in your City, please let us know.

Events.AI

Now listing over 200 AI related events, conferences, meetups, one-day events and webinars. With the largest list of discount codes for AI conferences in one place.

Vocation.AI

One of the key issues highlighted by the Royal Society report on Machine Learning was the potential skills gap as an industry we are facing. Obviously there isn’t a single solution to this, but we hope both into.AI from a training and education perspective, and Vocation.AI from a career portal and jobs board will help to support this key area of development needed over the coming years.

Updated with a fresh new design a few months ago, we are looking to partner with agencies and companies to list opportunities as well as allow candidates to post their profiles and CVs online.

Showcase.AI

With our first AI RoundTable being a successful event, we are planning to host more in the coming months.

We have plans to host a Summit later this year, plus our Quarterly Showcase events too, providing Online Live Demonstrations of AI Products, Frameworks and Tools.

We also plan to host an Annual UnConference for Researchers to better share ideas and receive feedback (more on this soon). 

Other Updates

In addition to growing our user-base, our number of volunteers, and the functionality provided by our websites, we also upgraded to a new website hosting company, providing much improved site performance. The migrations occurred seamlessly without any significant issue. We also updated our logos and colour schemes. We added facebook pages for each site, a linkedIn group and a slack channel. 

Growth and Funding

Our main challenge with this ecosystem, is that there is so much more we would do with the platform, given more time, resources and with a little bit of funding. To this end, we are currently seeking seed funding for Informed.AI and am also looking at alternative methods, such as crowd funding (watch this space). 

We also have a number of sponsorship opportunities across the platform, including the Awards and Neurons. If you would like your company to be associated with the great work we are doing with this ecosystem, please contact us for more details. 

In addition we have a number of additional projects and sites in the planning stage which we will be launching in the coming months, which will add new capabilities to our portfolio of sites.

Volunteers Needed

We are always looking for more help and support from volunteers. 

We need more chapter leaders, and co-leads for each chapter, with additional support for each too.

Much more help on content for many of our sites, from blogs to structured updates on specific sites. We really need alot of help here.

Partnerships, Sponsorships and Business Development are all areas we need to extend and develop over the coming months. We would appreciate any help from people who believe they can contribute to these areas for us.

We Value your Support Feedback and Comments

As always, your feedback is welcomed and encouraged, as we want to make sure we are delivering useful sites and functionality. The best way to do this is email us at talk@into.AI

Thank you for your continued support and encouragement.

The Informed.AI Team

 

Celebrating Two Years of homeAI.info and the Informed.AI Media Group

Celebrating Two Years of homeAI.info and the Informed.AI Media Group

Two years today homeAI.info first went live. I am very happy to say that the purpose for site then is still the core purpose of the Informed.AI group of websites, and that is to Support the AI Community.

The two year milestone has made us review this mission and we are pleased to revise our mandate to ensure our core message and purpose is clear and easy to understand.

The past two years have been an amazing journey, adding more functionality to homeAI.info, creating a number supporting sites for specific parts of the ecosystem. But the most enjoyable part of this for us has always been meeting people and helping them to engage better with the wider AI community.

We have accomplished so many amazing things over the past two years. For example, our Events site recently hit the 150 events listed milestone and continues at pace with more events being listed every single week.

One of the key issues highlighted by the Royal Society report on Machine Learning was the potential skills gap as an industry we are facing. Obviously there isn’t a single solution to this, but we hope both homeAI.info from a training and education perspective, and Vocation.AI from a career portal and jobs board will help to support this key area of development needed over the coming years.

AI Awards

The AI Awards, have been a huge success on a global scale, we have already awarded 27 winners of the AI Awards. Having now entered our third year, we have some fantastic plans and announcements coming very soon that I am sure everyone will be very pleased to hear. Celebrating the successes and achievements of this fast paced industry is hugely important and really at the core of our efforts to support the AI community.

Neurons Network

We continue to grow our Professional Network for AI Practitioners and Researchers call Neurons. This is a mix of both online and offline interactions, with meetups, forums, user blogs and messaging. This platform allows us to facilitate the knowledge sharing between organisations, allowing us all to benefit from the open developments of this field. We have recently created Meetup Chapters covering several new Cities in addition London, and are looking to rapidly add more regions and locations over the coming months.

Unique Content

We want to thank everyone for their continued involvement. We are always looking for contributors, to submit stories, press releases and thought leadership articles. Sharing your news and thoughts is all part of what this ecosystem is designed for, so please don’t hesitate to submit your news on our platform. We are now also creating our own unique stories, articles and papers, which we hope you will enjoy. This exclusive content will also be shared as part of our new weekly news letter.

Showcase

We will be launching a number of modern styled events as part of our AI Showcase, including a Quarterly Online Live Demonstrations of AI Products, Frameworks and Tools, an Annual UnConference for Researchers to better share ideas and receive feedback and a Showcase Summit. More details coming soon, but please visit our site and register your interest.

In addition we have a number of additional projects and sites in the planning stage which we will be launching in the coming months, which will add new capabilities to our portfolio of sites.

Volunteers Needed

One of the key developments over the last six months, is the building of a team of volunteers to help accelerate our own capabilities and deliveries to facilitate our mission of support the AI community. I want to thank everyone that has already signed up to help us with our mission, and to welcome others to volunteer, as there is always more to do in this fast paced environment and the more volunteers we have the more we can support the community.

As we add more Cities to our Neurons Meetup Chapters we need volunteers to help organise the  local events. We are also looking for AI Experts to join our panel of judges for the AI Awards. If you would like to involved please contact us to find our more.

We are also forming a number of strategic partnerships that will enable us to achieve alot more in the coming months. More detailed announcements of these will be released in due course, but this is a very exciting stage of our expansion.

We Value your Feedback

As always, your feedback is welcomed and encouraged, as we want to make sure we are delivering useful sites and functionality. The best way to do this is email us at talk@homeAI.info

USA Trip March 2017 – A summary of 3 AI & ML Conferences

USA Trip March 2017 – A summary of 3 AI & ML Conferences

homeAI.info Founder takes a tour of America

New York and San Francisco, two very different cities, and three very difference AI & ML Conferences. This trip was motivated by the simple fact that many of the visitors to the Informed.AI media websites originate from the USA. So to visit and see first hand what the current topics of discussion are, the latest research, and most interesting applications, was only going to help inform me what the focus should be to continue the expansion and additions to the sites going forward.

To read the full review visit http://andypardoe.com/blog/usa-trip-march-2017-a-review/

We Need Your Help!

HomeAI.info was setup just over 18 months ago by Dr Andy Pardoe. Over that past year and a half, the site has grown both in terms of functionality and visitors. We have always had fantastic encouragement and feedback from the community which has lead to adding more and more to our offering.

Since our initial launch, we have added a number of additional sites and ways we are supporting the AI community. These include Events.AI, Awards.AI and most recently Neurons.AI

We have now reached a point in our development, where we need to seek the help and assistance from others to help us to continue to grow and increase the support we offer.

We are a non-profit organisation, and looking for people who wish to help support the AI community as a volunteer. We feel this is a wonderful opportunity for you to raise your own profile in the community while also supporting and giving back to an industry and community that has so much potential to be a world leader over the coming years.

What we Need

  1. Senior Leaders, CTOs, CIOs and most importantly, SMEs of AI and Machine Learning, to form a senior advisory board supporting Andy and the management team in terms of the direction and focus of the initiatives that we should drive forward. We will meet a few times a year to set the agenda and focus on the group.
  2. Content Providers, Journalists and Editors to help us increase our own content. Help give us our own voice and opinion. We feel this is really important to help build up our catalog of contributors.
  3. Sales & Marketing. To help us grow, we need to reach out to more companies and individuals to make them aware of the ways we can support them.
  4. Admin. As we grow we need to keep ontop of more and more administrations and paperwork.
  5. Operations & Logistics. While our initial focus has been on the on-line world, we are moving more into the off-line, real world in terms of organising meetups, and conferences. This requires all sorts of help both on the day of the event but also beforehand too.
  6. Regional and Country Leads. We have visitors from all over the world, and ideally we would like a country lead for each to ensure we are giving focus to each countries specific requirements. Plus to support our role out of real world events.
  7. Business Development. Help exploring new growth areas. We have a number of new websites we need help to grow, including our Jobs and Careers Portal (Vocation.AI) and our new Professional Networking site Neurons.AI. We also have a few ideas which we would like to roll out in 2017 too.
  8. Technical support. We run and administer an increasing number of websites, we would welcome support with these to allow us to add more functionality quicker to our sites, while ensuring we have a stable platform for our users and visitors.
  9. CEO, CTO and CMO. While Andy Pardoe has been performing all of these roles since inception, we would welcome the dedication and leadership that separating these roles would bring, together with benefits of strengthening the management team.

Currently none of these roles come with any renumeration, they are very much part-time voluntary roles. However, we are seeking funding sources that would change that situation in the near future.

Help us grow this initiative and allow us to continue our support of the AI community.

All enquiries should be sent to andy@informed.ai

The Global Annual Achievement Awards for Artificial Intelligence — The 2nd Annual Award Winners Announced.

awardwinnerbadge

The Global Annual Achievement Awards for Artificial Intelligence is now in its second year, and has significantly grown this year, both in terms of the number of categories of award and the number of votes received.

These annual awards are to celebrate the various achievements of the AI community in developing new algorithms, products and services across a number of different categories and industries. We also acknowledged the work of startups and individuals who’s focus on AI is advancing the field.

A new addition to the awards this year is our Special Award for AI Achievement for the person, company, product or tool we feel most deserving of our recognition.

We are pleased to announce the Winners of the AI Awards, and full details are listed on our website http://Awards.AI. You can also see the media responses at @Awards_AI

AI Predictions for 2017

AI Predictions for 2017

So our 2017 Predictions for Artificial Intelligence are as follows;

  1. Art and Media Creation – I feel this will continue to build momentum next year with more advances in the type of content and quality of content produced. We are already seeing the quality coming close to that of humans, and maybe this year in a number of categories we will find it difficult to distinguish between AI generated and human created.
  2. Virtual Assistants – We are now seeing agents entering the home (not just on our phones) the integration with IoT devices will continue at pace in 2017. But can they do more than just switching lights on and off, doing simple search tasks and ordering repeat items from our favourite stores.
  3. More Physical Robots and Self-Driving Cars – This is an area that is very close to explode in terms of mainstream. Apple are design a vehicle, Uber are testing self-driving taxis. Robots to provide home help will be further developed in Japan (where there is a huge need for this). But we will see more robots doing simple tasks in the home and office?
  4. Start-ups come out of Stealth –  Over the past few years there has been a huge amount of VC funding for start-ups working in AI. We have seen the first firms already and many of them have been bought by the large technology players, but there will be many more start-ups surface from stealth this year, delivering more and more novel business models and solutions
  5. More Industries investigate use of AI – We will see many more diverse industries looking to employ the benefits of AI in there own environments. This will really drive AI in Business. But this may just start as advanced analytics and prediction / recommendation tasks, with robotics and deep learning applications coming into play in 2018.
  6. AI in the Workplace – We will start to see Augmentation (See the Four-A’s) in the workplace for a number of different jobs. This will be a gentle introduction to how AI is going to transform the workplace over the next five years. Sectors that are consume huge quantities of information, both structured and unstructured will see augmentation first, including the legal and accounting professions.
  7. More Lives Saved – We will see more applications of analytics and research empowered by AI that will be saving peoples lives, both immediate and from diagnosis and medical cures. I hope these applications get well publicised as this is one of the wonderful benefits of these advanced algorithms.
  8. More Talk about Governance and Ethics – This will continue until we have a world-wide agreement on a framework for both keys areas but don’t expect that in 2017. While we will see certain countries moving this forward faster than others, it will still be mostly superficial talk with limited progress in 2017.
  9. Further Advances in the Technology – There is a huge amount of research happening, from Universities, Large Companies and Start-ups, that we will continue to see advances is the models, algorithms, frameworks and platforms. But the progress will be incremental in 2017, with no major quantum leap advance.
  10. A Standard Definition for Artificial Intelligence – While the field is technically 60 years old this year, there is still not a standard definition that is widely accepted. I plan to help close this one out in 2017, more to follow on this one soon.

Celebrating Eighteen Months of homeAI.info and the Informed.AI Group

Celebrating Eighteen Months of homeAI.info and the Informed.AI Group

Another six months, and a lot of progress to report on.

Our main site homeAI.info still remains at the heart of our group. A growing directory of information resources, with an additional category added for fintech during the last period and still more to come. The news area is still very popular and we continue to see more user submitted stories. We have also continued to add more to our spotlight area and are always looking for more companies, startups and people to profile in our spotlight section.

We have just launched a new dedicate area for Students of AI accessed via the link http://Study.AI which we see as a major part to our educational offering going forward, and will over the coming months add more resources to this area.

We have launched the 2nd Annual Global AI Achievement Awards which has an amazing 21 categories, making it the biggest and best Awards for AI. This is the original AI Awards and we hope you all support this initiative by voting at http://Awards.AI. The Awards are a core part of us delivering our manifesto obligation of supporting the AI community and celebrating the achievements of those working in the field.

To mark the Eighteen month anniversary we are launching our most ambition website yet. We are calling it Neurons.AI and its a Professional Network for AI Practitioners and Researchers. The focus on this site is to provide a bridge between commercial and academic endeavours in the field of AI. We strongly believe that bringing the two groups together will produce even more amazing developments in the field of AI, Machine Learning and Data Science. The network is like a social media network, but with a significant emphasis on forums and discussions. Neurons.AI also includes an offline element in the form of regular meet-ups. We have an official Press Release for this launch which you can read here.

We are also preparing to launch our AI Showcase Quarterly meet up from Q1 2017, the details can be seen at http://Showcase.AI. The desire is to inform students of AI and Machine Learning about the inner workings of a commercial development of Machine Learning applications and systems. This meetup will also be an opportunity for startups to showcase their products.

We continue to develop the careers portal and jobs board at http://Vocation.AI and are actively looking for more companies or agencies wanting to list their job opportunities on our site for free.

As always without the support of the AI community we are nothing. We continue to get wonderful feedback, and look forward to develop our platform to further support the AI community. We are very excited to make significant progress in 2017. As part of this we are looking to build out our advisory board to help us shape the direction of our future growth and are exploring ways we can accelerate our growth and rollout in 2017.

Thank you for your continued support and encouragement.
