Organisations turn to AI in race against cyber attackers

#artificialintelligence

Companies and public sector organisations say they have no choice but to automate their cyber defences as hacking become increasingly sophisticated. Security professionals can no longer keep pace with the volume and sophistication of attacks on computer systems. In a study of 850 security professionals across 10 countries, more than half said their organisations are overwhelmed with data. So they are turning to machine-learning technologies that can identify cyber attacks by analysing huge quantities of network data and have the potential to block attacks automatically. By 2020, two out of three companies plan to deploy cyber security defences incorporating machine learning and other forms of artificial intelligence (AI), according to the Capgemini study, Reinventing cyber security with artificial intelligence.


Best Practices for using Mopinion's Machine Learning Technology - Mopinion

#artificialintelligence

Below we will explain what this new ML technology can do for you as well as lay out some best practices for getting the best results! The automatic feedback categorisation technology is the first of several new, built-in technologies to be launched by Mopinion, which will demonstrate the latest advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning. It employs Supervised Machine Learning (ML) techniques that make the analysis of qualitative feedback data – by way of labelling and categorisation – a much more fluid and systematic process. Essentially with Supervised Machine Learning you are training the system to do what you want by providing it with examples to learn from. In other words, the technology takes historical data – which in this case is any labelling or categorisation the user has previously inputted into the software – and predicts how the feedback should be categorised based on that data.


Taking the lead on digital and AI - Education Technology

#artificialintelligence

From TED Talk speakers, to a futurologist's keynote at an event, those who make predictions about the future usually live safe in the knowledge they won't retrospectively be pulled up on forecasts that don't come to pass. The picture is very different for those in government, who must ensure citizens and businesses are adequately prepared for challenges. Government predictions must convert to real-world planning that puts building blocks for future success and prosperity in place – it can't be a'finger in the air'. Education is at the foundations of preparation. Governments and educators must identify trends early enough to update curriculums, develop the right courses, and equip people with skills that put us in a strong position to compete on the world stage.


What's wrong with the approach to Data Science?

#artificialintelligence

Data science is the application of statistics, programming and domain knowledge to generate insights into a problem that needs to be solved. The Harvard Business Review said Data Scientist is the sexiest job of the 21st century. How often has that article been referenced to convince people? The job'Data Scientist' has been around for decades, it was just not called "Data Scientist". Statisticians have used their knowledge and skills using machine learning techniques such as Logistic Regression and Random Forest for prediction and insights for decades.


Choosing a Processor for Machine Learning at the Edge

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning has become popular for solving machine vision and other embedded computing problems. While classical machine learning algorithms need human intervention to extract features from data, machine learning algorithms or network models learn how to extract important features in data and make intelligent predictions about that data. Below, figure 1 shows a few examples where machine learning technology is adding intelligence to a variety of devices. In smart home appliances like a smart oven, machine learning can be used to classify food inside the oven and set the cooking temperature and time of the oven accordingly. In factories, machine learning can be used for detecting defects in the products or it can be used for predictive maintenance to help predict the remaining useful life of the motor or detecting anomaly in motor operations.


Text-to-Speech with Amazon Polly

#artificialintelligence

Amazon Polly is a service that turns text into lifelike speech, allowing you to create applications that talk, and build entirely new categories of speech-enabled products. Amazon Polly is an Amazon AI service that uses advanced deep learning technologies to synthesize speech that sounds like a human voice. With dozens of lifelike voices across a variety of languages, you can select the ideal voice and build speech-enabled applications that work in many different countries.


How Product Managers Learn About AI Meeting Peak Effectiveness

#artificialintelligence

"What do I need to know about AI and what's the best way to learn it?" I've invested a considerable amount of time taking numerous courses, so I dug into my emails to collect some of the suggestions I've doled out. First, it's worth addressing the extent to which a product manager even needs to understand how AI works in order to be effective. There is an endless stream of business articles about what AI is, what it does and how it is going to disrupt this and that, all of which is great, but I am talking about understanding how it works (e.g. As Marty Cagan pointed out in Inspired (a must-read), product managers can come from a variety of different vertical disciplines, including those that are not necessarily technical, such as marketing or sales.



Machine Learning Coursera

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. In this class, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself.


15 Of The Best Machine Learning Courses On Coursera For Free

#artificialintelligence

It feels impossible to keep up with every new concept and technology in data science and machine learning. You have multiple languages, libraries and design principles. We have written pieces on different resources that can help data professionals keep up to date with all the various technologies. However, many of these courses cost money. But coursera offers an opportunity to take online courses for free from actual colleges and educational institutions.
