...robots are commercially marketed and used for services like "Get and Bring" (for example in hospitals). Humanoid robots are being developed since 1975 when Wabot-I was presented in Japan. The current Wabot-III already has some minor cognitive capabilities. Another humanoid robot is "Cog", developed in the MIT-AI-Lab since 1994. Honda's humanoid robot became well known in the public when presented http://hello-engineers.blogspot.com/ back in 1999. Although it is remote controlled by humans it can walk autonomously (on the floor and stairs). In science fiction robots are already human's best friend but in reality we will only see robots for specific jobs as universal programmable machine slave in the near future (which leads to interesting questions, see [17]). 1.3 Definition: What is a Robot? Robots are physical agents that perform tasks by manipulating the physical world. They are equipped with sensors to perceive their environment and effectors to assert physical forces on it (covered in more detail in next section). As mentioned before Robots can be put into three main categories: manipulators, mobile robots and humanoid robots. 1.4 Robotics and AI Artificial intelligence is a theory. The base object is the agent who is the "actor". It is realized in software. Robots are manufactured as hardware. The connection between those two is that the control of the robot is a software agent that reads data from the sensors, decides what to do next and then......

Suggestions for who should pay for the losses incurred, to whom, and why. 3. My opinion regarding the role, if any, the federal government should have deciding and enforcing remedies and punishment. I will include two (2) facts to support my opinion. 4. An evaluation on how AIS can contribute or not contribute to the losses. This assignment will use technology and information resources to research issues in accounting information systems. AIS Attacks and Failures: Who to Blame Take a position on whether a firm and its management team should or should not be held liable for losses sustained in a successful attack made on their AIS by outside sources. Include two (2) facts to support your position. Security controls are safety measures to avoid, counteract or minimize security risks. The firm and management team is responsible for effectively implementing preventative, detective, and corrective controls in order to prevent, identify, and limit the extent of damage from occurring, in progress, or caused by the incident. If adequate security controls are in place then the firm and management team should not be held liable for losses sustained in a successful attack made on their Accounting Information System (AIS) by outside sources. However, if a firm and its management team have not implemented......

Ais Attacks

...Attacks On AIS Introduction The more modern technology advances it appears vulnerabilities continuously exist in software used on networks. Hackers or automated information system (AIS) attackers gain access to system networks by manipulating those vulnerabilities. Attackers accomplish this by exploiting operating systems at the root level (Balga, Iftode, & Chen, 2008). Although there are protective measures available, businesses, particularly small businesses, are the most susceptible to these attacks. The following paragraphs will provide an argument based on why businesses are liable for loss when attackers attack their AIS. AIS The assembly of firmware, hardware, and software makes up the automated information system or AIS. It is here where computers store information, such as computations and communications. Businesses and governmental agencies benefit from the use of an AIS. The benefits are time and cost efficient; however, the greater the benefit the greater the risk of attacks. Businesses are losing billions of dollars annually because of these attacks especially when there is no preventive measures in place (Balga, Iftode, & Chen, 2008). Without preventive measures, attackers forge Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses, which causes the victims of the attack to attack other victims. The source of the attack remains unidentifiable. Another type of attack is through user accounts. Networks use authentication information, such as user ID and......

Fraud in Ais

...Fraud in the AIS Chad Burrell Professor Daniel Acheampong Accounting Information Systems ACC564 August 14, 2013 Abstract Firm Embezzled There were many failures in the firms accounting system that assisted this embezzlement to last for a decade. Sue Sachdeva was the main accountant at Koss Corporation and it is estimated that she embezzled over 34 million dollars during that time. Sachdeva was able to embezzle this amount through wire transfers, checks, and credit cards (Whitehouse, 2011). The first failure was the age of the AIS. It is estimated that the system was almost 30 years old. There were two offers to purchase a new system and each time Michael Koss, the CEO, denied the request (Whitehouse, 2011). Koss was operating on an outdated accounting system and probably thought that it was okay because he had auditors come in and authenticate the work it did. It is important to have a current system in order to keep accurate reports in keeping the company operating efficiently. Another failure was the reports that were produced by the AIS. Michael Koss never took the time to look at the financial records of the company. Even though he was the CEO of the company, he never took adequate time to read and compare the financial statements on a monthly or yearly basis. SOX The article recounts some specific problems within Koss: * Koss Corporation prepared materially inaccurate financial statements, book and records, and lacked adequate......

Ai Weiwei

...2013 Ai Weiwei Ai Weiwei is an internationally celebrated Chinese artist whose voice is heard loudly through his art. He believes in freedom of expression and despises the Chinese Government’s power. Ai’s contemporary style comes in many forms; Sculpture, architecture, installation, film and photography, are only some of his great talents; his art exposes the very real hardships of the Chinese people and how their culture has been muted over time. The government has become such a major influence and has gained so much power that at one point they convinced the people to destroy their cultural reminders in hopes that they will leave behind an insignificant past. Ai Weiwei was born the 18 of May 1957 to father Ai Qing and mother Gao Ying. Ai Qing was well known throughout China for his very forward poetry. Qing would later be considered a liberal who spoke out by joining a very left wing Artist Association and in doing so he was subsequently arrested in the early 1930’s, this decision cost he and his family to be sentenced to live in a labor camp. For the first eighteen years of Ai Weiwei’s life was spent in Xinjiang and later they would be removed to Gobi Desert (with even worse conditions) then back again to Xinjiang before being released in 1975. Life was very hard for the family during this long period of time. The year of 1975, brought with it great change for their entire Weiwei family, they were allowed to return home to Beijing and in the year of 1978, Ai Qing......

...Company) & Changing the AIS Karen Bailey Strayer University ACC564 – Accounting Information Systems Professor: Dr. Monica Hubler September 8, 2014 Abstract Migrating to a new accounting information system is not an easy task. Many firms have struggled with this process, even though our textbook makes the process seem quite straightforward. Recently, IBM recapped some of the lessons learned in migrating to a new accounting information system within the federal government. These lessons can be applied to any accounting information system project. Others have developed their own recommendations for best practices and lessons learned involving implementing accounting information systems. However, in order to appreciate what IBM and others are proposing, we need to apply lessons learned to a real-life situation involving the failure to implement an accounting system properly. In Apollon Smyrnis (A Football Company) & Changing the AIS, I will research information related to a real-life accounting information system failure and best practices, as well as lessons learned from implementing the accounting system. In addition to information that I may find during my research, I will also use the following IBM article to complete the assignment: (http://www.businessofgovernment.org/article/what-we-know-now-lessons-learned-implementing-federal-financial-systems-projects).

String Ai vs Weak Ai

...machines that were able to do some kind of intelligent work. According to AI concept it is possible for a machine to think. Actually intelligence has different meanings according to different people so let’s skip this talk and come to the point Strong vs Weak AI. Strong AI: According to think tanks of AI a day will come when computer’s computations and calculations will become so strong that a computer will be able to take decisions just like human brain, so that we will be able to call it as intelligent as human brain. In other words a machine will think in the same way as a human brain does. Weak AI: Weak AI is also intelligence in a way because the technology that we are using today as AI can be referred to as weak AI. Because the level of AI that we attain today can’t be placed at the level of human brain, because the most advance machines today we have can’t actually think like human brains. The case of chess master Garry Kasparov vs IBM's Deep Blue program is a good illustration. Although Kasparov had the advantage of human intuition, Deep Blue had the ability to calculate 200 million probabilities per second. Better approach to adopt: According to me it is impossible for a machine to attain a level of intelligence like human brain. But if we consider that it happens so this will be a destruction of the world. Because human brain is equally as dangerous as it is intelligent, so better approach is weak AI but it should be evolved for the betterment of humanity....

(iv) “Rapid elasticity”. The scale of services can be adjusted rapidly according to the consumer’s demand. (v) “Measured service”. The usage of computing resources is measured by the cloud systems automatically, thus utilizing the service provided to the consumer. There are basically three service models: Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and four deployment models: Public cloud, Private cloud, Hybrid cloud and Community cloud. (Mell and Grance, 2011). ii. Accounting information system (AIS) Accounting information system is often described as “the combination of two terms- Accounting & Information System, whose major function is to collect, financial data, process it & provide financial information to the external & internal users” (Salehi et al. 2014, pp. 186). In essence, accounting information system is not necessarily a computerized system, it can be merely a simple manual system using pen and paper. However, with the rapid development of cloud computing, it has an increasingly significant impact on the revolution of accounting information system. iii. Adoption of cloud based accounting information system on the market On the Australian market, MYOB and QuickBooks have been the dominant accounting......

...intelligence research is very highly technical and specialized, and is deeply divided into sub fields that usually often fail to communicate with each other. Some of the division is due to social and cultural factors meaning that it will or will not function because of our multicultural race. Some sub fields have grown up around particular institutions and the work of individual researchers. Artificial intelligence research is also divided by several technical issues. Some sub fields focus on the solution of specific problems. Others focus on one of several possible approaches or on the use of a particular tool or towards the accomplishment of particular applications(Artificial Intelligence, A.G. Cohn, R. Dechter).The central problems, or goals of AI research include reasoning, knowledge, planning, learning, communication, perception and the ability to move and manipulate objects. General artificial intelligence or strong artificial intelligence is still among the field's long term goals. Currently, the popular approaches include statistical methods, computational intelligence and traditional artificial intelligence. There are an enormous number of tools used in artificial intelligence, including versions of search and mathematical optimization, logic and methods based on probability and economics. There are many positive outcomes in our society can result with the use of artificial intelligence. Increased production and costs have already been witnessed in factories......

Ais Problem

...hire a CFO (Denise Charbonet) who could work with Lloyd Rowland (a software consultant) to determine the inputs and outputs needed for an AIS for the new company. Of particular concern is the data the AIS will need to collect regarding inventories. As Dick, Denise, and Lloyd know, inventory management will be a key factor for the success of HMC because Corvette cars are unique—parts are needed for these cars since the 1960s! Dick believes that an AIS will give him the data and information needed for good decision-making, especially to manage inventory investments. HMC’s customers are primarily Corvette specialty repair shops and they typically demand parts only as needed, but exactly when needed. Inventory can be very costly for HMC if they must stockpile many specialty parts to be able to quickly meet customer orders. Hammaker knows from his work experience in Michigan that there are a number of costs associated with holding inventories (warehousing, obsolescence, and insurance costs)—money that could be put to better use elsewhere. Dick knows that he will need to buy raw materials from suppliers and hold raw materials inventories plus make-to-stock parts, or customers will find other parts suppliers. Denise and Lloyd meet to discuss the issues. They decide that they need to do two things. First, they need to determine what AIS software package would be best for the new company, one that is particularly focused on inventory control, or one with an inventory......

What Is Ai?

...of artificial intelligence insist that such concerns are the result of semantic misunderstanding. By definition, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the area of computer science focusing on creating machines that can engage on behaviors that humans consider intelligent ("Artificial Intelligence”, Herzfeld Noreen). The ability to create intelligent machines has intrigued humans since ancient times and today with the advent of the computer and 50 years of research into AI programming techniques, the dream of smart machines is becoming a reality (Nonlinear Science and Complexity, M. Marques). Researchers are creating systems which can mimic human thought, understand speech, beat the best human chess player, and countless other feats never before possible. The next paragraphs will be focused on the history of Artificial Intelligence, from the idea to its concept. The aspects and application of AI will be analyzed, as well as its pro and cons. Artificial intelligence has been around for longer then most people think. We all think that artificial intelligence has been in research for about 20 years or so. In all actuality after thousands of years of fantasy, the appearance of the digital computer, with its native, human-like ability to process symbols, made it seem that the myth of the man-made intelligence would finally become reality. (About AI, website) The history of artificial intelligence all started in the 3rd century BC. Chinese engineer Mo Ti created mechanical birds,......

History of Ais

...business. [edit]Software architecture of a modern AIS A modern AIS typically follows a multitier architecture separating the presentation to the user, application processing and data management in distinct layers. The presentation layer manages how the information is displayed to and viewed by functional users of the system (through mobile devices, web browsers or client application). The entire system is backed by a centralized database that stores all of the data. This can include transactional data generated from the core business processes (purchasing, inventory, accounting) or static, master data that is referenced when processing data (employee and customer account records and configuration settings). As transaction occur, the data is collected from the business events and stored into the system’s database where it can be retrieved and processed into information that is useful for making decisions. The application layer retrieves the raw data held in the database layer, processes it based on the configured business logic and passes it onto the presentation layer to display to the users. For example, consider the accounts payable department when processing an invoice. With an accounting information system, an accounts payable clerk enters the invoice, provided by a vendor, into the system where it is then stored in the database. When goods from the vendor are received, a receipt is created and also entered into the AIS. Before the accounts payable department pays the......

...AI robot: how machine intelligence is evolving No computer can yet pass the 'Turing test' and be taken as human. But the hunt for artificial intelligence is moving in a different, exciting direction that involves creativity, language – and even jazz • Comments (109) • Marcus du Sautoy • The Observer, Saturday 31 March 2012 • Article history [pic] Marcus du Sautoy with one of Luc Steels's language-making robots. Photograph: Jodie Adams/BBC 'I propose to consider the question "Can machines think?"' Not my question but the opening of Alan Turing's seminal 1950 paper which is generally regarded as the catalyst for the modern quest to create artificial intelligence. His question was inspired by a book he had been given at the age of 10: Natural Wonders Every Child Should Know by Edwin Tenney Brewster. The book was packed with nuggets that fired the young Turing's imagination including the following provocative statement: "Of course the body is a machine. It is vastly complex, many times more complicated than any machine ever made with hands; but still after all a machine. It has been likened to a steam machine. But that was before we knew as much about the way it works as we know now. It really is a gas engine; like the engine of an automobile, a motor boat or a flying machine." If the body were a machine, Turing wondered: is it possible to artificially create such a contraption that could think like he did? This year is Turing's centenary so would......
