on: September 19, 2016, by: Ann Kelly

About two weeks ago, I saw an article (actually, one of my colleagues posted it on our intranet) from the MIT Technology Review about the limitations of Artificial Intelligence. The article is here for those of you who want to read it in full, but the fundamental concept is; while AI has made great strides in the last 20 years or so (see the recent win by Google’s AlphaGo over Lee Sodol, who is thought to be one of the best Go players of all time), it is still fundamentally inadequate in one respect – we have not yet built a machine that can carry on a conversation with anything remotely approximating human facility.

on: August 22, 2016, by: Ann Kelly

Classification is the process of describing a piece of information (a contract, a proposal, a policy), what it’s about (subjects, topics, themes), and how it should be managed (distributed, secured, archived) by applying one or more metadata tags.
