Artificial Intelligence - Broward, Weston, Florida

About Artificial Intelligence (AI)

In the name of Artificial Intelligence (AI) we have seen the emergence of systems such as IBM Watson, Google’s Deep Learning, and conversational assistants such as Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Echo, Microsoft’s Cortana, and human-look-alike robots. Mixed into all the hype, nowdays there is a frequent talk about whether building truly intelligent systems is even possible for those who want to see some “AI” in their company as a cool “thing”.

Intelligence is the computational part of the ability to achieve goals in the world. Artficial is applied when a machine mimics cognitive functions that is associated with human minds. The field of AI research was founded in 1956. 60 years later the AI technology still looks and behave like a real toddler. We call it Artificial Somewhat Intelligence (ASI). AI a very complex issue involving Big Picture (Universe), Philosophy, Biology, Quantum Field Theory (QFT) and Computer Sciences.

Our clients have very different ideas and goals with regard to building AI systems, and they tend to fall into some basic camps, based on how close the computer based machines they are building line up with how people work:

  • the goal is to build system(s) that think exactly the same way that people do, genuinely simulating human reasoning, and is called “strong AI”. It’s a very complex subject and usually way beyond the real needs of an average company or organization,
  • using human reasoning as a model that can inform and inspire new “things”. These systems use human reasoning as a guide, but they are not driven by the goal to perfectly model it. An example of this is the IBM Watson,
  • get the job done and don’t care if the data and software has anything to do with human thought, it is usually called “weak AI”. This is what majority of our clients may need, an AI system designed for specific tasks. They don’t want a system that is brilliant at figuring out where the nearest university with great creative talents is to also change oil in a car.

We focus on specific problems or on the use of a particular tool to build satisfying AI applications such as:

  • behavioral analysis of financial markets, simulated financial trading competition,
  • data mining and data analysis,
  • proprietary information encryption/decryption with automatic trusted partner and key identification,
  • online customer service with text and image recognition,
  • human – AI user interfaces (HAI); text, image, video, audio interfaces for complex information systems.

HTML5 web developers

HTML5 web sites

Recently clients ask a lot about html5. For them it sounds like a new “thing” they have to pay for to be “on the Internet”. In the past few years HTML5 has become the representative of hot web technologies and is widely gaining acceptance across mobile and web. Let’s speak about HTML5 here and answer the question “why does it matter for you?”

HTML is an important element of the World Wide Web (web). It’s nothing else than the language used to describe what a webpage should look like in the web site visitor’s browser. However, HTML on its own is pretty simple as it can only deliver static pages.

Remember the very basic web sites of 1990s. Web was full of single HTML files presenting long text with some images and gifs. HTML was not primarily about displaying a document with some formatting. Most fundamental was the simple a tag. It gave a document the means to link to another document. Web sites were constructed as many one-page static HTML documents, all linked together.

As technology and market demand improved more impressive web features were required. HTML pages have been coupled with plugins like CSS, Javascripts, Flash, Java etc., while server side solutions (ASP, Java, PHP, .NET etc.) also significantly improved. These server applications dynamically construct HTML pages to be presented on the client’s web browser. By the early 2000s it has become messy because different web browsers implemented these generated HTML pages and client side features in their own ways.

HTML5 is a logical extensions of the old HTML element. HTML5 is meant to present cleaner and more efficient web pages to deliver the same experience to every user regardless of web browsers and hardware platforms such as desktops, laptops, tablets or mobile phones. We don’t have to keep plugins like Flash and Silverlight. HTML5 pages presented in capable web browsers do everything like running animations, playing music or movies, and can also be used to build complex applications. By 2015 all major browsers started to support HTML5 to a large degree and you’ve probably been taking advantage of it already without knowing.

If your web site is built or upgraded to comply with HTML5, the development will result in better user experience, more efficient content and improved performance. When HTML5 is adopted across your web site, web pages should start to load faster, and less bandwidth should be used.

Developers of Weston Digital City, LLC are available for HTML5 projects.
