Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a discipline that uses the available information to simulate natural intelligence and solve complex problems, with the objective to find an optimal solution and increase the chance of success.
Your IIM plans to bring more content and events related to implementing modern ways of solving business problems.
IIM joined forces with DAMA Australia to organise a series of seminars titled "AI @ Work", which will expand on the success of IAM 2019 and further explore practical use and experiences related to implementing solutions based on AI. We work with DAMA Australia to make these events available via web to all our members across Australia.
I hope that you will enjoy articles in this newsletter curated by Linda Shave and I look forward to seeing you at one of our events in the near future.

One way to achieve this is to align the design and application of AI with ethical and inclusive values. Link to more information

AI News - How Research of Rats Can Enable Autonomous Cars and Robots Navigate Better Someday, as autonomous cars speed down our roadways and robots perform elaborate rescue operations too risky for humans to carry out, we may have rats to thank. Well, more specifically: rats, a box of Froot Loops, and a team of Boston University neuroscientists. The study, partially funded by a $7.5 million multidisciplinary grant from the Department of Defense, offers valuable insights into the workings of the brain's navigational system -- knowledge that could be leveraged to create smarter autonomous vehicles that can find their way around obstacles as well as living organisms.
