Fido’s vision is to harness the world’s knowledge, which is hidden within the internet and make it available to everyone who wants to learn from it. The data is out there. The only problem is that currently, we would need to read it all by ourselves, which is nearly impossible for us as individuals.
Google’s goal is to index all information online. We want to give you the answer you’re looking for, not just a link to a website. We want to build a ‘collective intelligence’ —not to mimic a human brain, but rather to get access to the knowledge from billions of humans’ minds combined together.
According to DARPA, there will be three waves of AI. In the past, we have had symbolic AIs with handcrafted knowledge. Today, we can see the flowering of the second wave -- statistical learning. We have already seen its great successes, and recently we have become increasingly aware of its limitations. Fido AI is a pioneer of the third wave of AI -- contextual adaptation.
CB Insights today selected Fido.ai to the prestigious Artificial Intelligence 100 list (“AI 100”), a select group of emerging private companies working on ground breaking artificial intelligence technology. CB Insights CEO and co-founder, Anand Sanwal, revealed the winners during The Innovation Summit, a gathering of top executives and investors to explore the industries of the future.
“A fully intelligent machine will be built in less than 20 years.” This was the promise of artificial intelligence (AI) in the 1960s, long before it became ubiquitous on Medium blog posts and industry publications. The creators behind Siri, Cortana, Alexa, and more recently, Viv claim that we are tantalizingly close to that future, but as this quote suggests, the history of AI is a never ending story of big promises that continually failed to deliver. These virtual personal assistants have been fun to test, but it is painfully clear to anyone who has tried them that AI still has a long way to go in understanding human language.
