Guest Blog: Dr Lai Jiang: How to make our AI assistants talk about energy management?

In this case, a question of great interest will be: how will these AI systems interact with their end users in the energy management field?

Guest Blog: Duncan Everett – If you don’t know is it your fault?

Nobody wants to fail but often the fear of failure can get in the way of success. So how do you break the ‘better to do nothing than fail’ barrier?

Guest Blog: Michael Prager – The Future for Energy Managers

Well first things first, there is one. The entire history of technology development has been one of net job creation not destruction. The emergence of AI as the baseline form of computing in the years ahead will create more jobs than it will destroy.

Guest Blog: Dr Lai Jiang – The Future of AI

Since the definition of “artificial intelligence” (AI) was given by John McCarthy in the 1950s, the future of AI has long been a question of great interest in a wide range of fields.
