The Supply Chain Virtual Assistant Chatbot.

We weren’t going to share the supply chain virtual assistant until we worked out most of the bugs but then decided it would be better to get feedback during development.  We still have a great deal of work to be done on the virtual assistant/chatbot.  Your questions and comments to the virtual assistant will help it learn at a rapid pace.  This is all part of the process to help the artificial intelligence virtual assistant become “intelligent.”

In order to use the virtual assistant you do need to have a Facebook account.  There are two ways to get to the virtual assistant.

To go directly to the Facebook virtual supply chain assistant click this link and start asking questions: https://www.messenger.com/t/SupplyChainToday

You can also go to the Supply Chain Today Facebook community and click the “Send Message” tab and that will initiate the virtual assistant as well: https://www.facebook.com/SupplyChainToday/

THANK YOU.

  • Worth reading Superintelligence by Boston. We need to be super careful with AI. Potentially more dangerous than nukes.” ~Elon Musk
  • “Artificial intelligence (AI) is an infant at best.  Once it becomes a teenager and believes it is smarter than its parents will AI rebel?” ~Dave Waters
  • “I am in the camp that is concerned about artificial intelligence.  First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent.  That should be positive if we manage it well.  A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern.  I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don’t understand why some people are not concerned.” ~Bill Gates

Need Machine Learning and Deep Learning Training? Try these Resources.

This section gets more specific on artificial intelligence and focuses on training for machine learning and deep learning.  Below are simple definitions for machine and deep learning.  The two videos focus on the basics of machine learning and deep learning.  There are resources below that will dive into the details behind these great technologies.  These technologies are going to completely change automation.  What people could only be done by humans can now be done by machines.

Machine Learning is a subset of artificial intelligence providing computers the ability to learn and improve from new data/experiences without being explicitly programmed.

Deep Learning is a subset of machine learning with the objective of moving closer to true artificial intelligence, basically trying to mimic the way the human brain works.
