How Amazon, Microsoft, Google Are Using AI Against Hackers


Amazon, Microsoft and Google are the forerunners among tech giants to leverage artificial intelligence to tackle cybersecurity threats and keep hackers at bay, who often pose as a real user to gain crucial data. Speaking to an international news agency, the chief security officers from each of the company unanimously agreed that AI and ML plays a crucial role in protecting their company'' multi-million dollar infrastructure by crunching large pool of data on a daily basis. While acknowledging that it is impossible to stop every intruder, Stephen Schmidt, Amazon CISO, maintained that the new tech remains largely beneficial for companies like that of Amazon which has to ensure online safety of millions of people across the world. Speaking about the ability of AI and ML in identifying hacker he said, "We will see an improved ability to identify threats earlier in the attack cycle and thereby reduce the total amount of damage and more quickly restore systems to a desirable state." Speaking on the large set of data that needs to be processed for monitoring unauthorised activities, Mark Risher, product management director at Google said,"The amount of data we need to look at to make sure whether this is you or an impostor keeps growing at a rate that is too large for humans to write rules one by one."

Data Lit (Music Video)


This lyrics of this music video are actually educational and they serve as an introductory lecture on AI. This video also acts as a teaser trailer for my upcoming, free 3 month Data Science course for beginners titled "Data Lit" at School of AI (Jan 28 start date). That's what keeps me going. Sign up for the "Data Lit" course at School of AI: Want more education? Shoutout to my Wizards, this ones for you It started with hello world hello engineers And now we're, world-wide yo and this the premiere So u gotta sit down tight and let me teach you a lesson I call it intro to AI, this is my confession Lesson one starts simple gotta get that data Don't even mess with the thetas until we get that data And if we open the file, it might look like a haze, But if we keep it algorithmic we can set it ablaze Hello!

5 Reasons to Become an Apache Spark Expert - The Databricks Blog


Apache Spark has fast become the most popular unified analytics engine for big data and machine learning. It was originally developed at UC Berkeley in 2009 by the team who later founded Databricks. Since its release, Apache Spark has seen rapid adoption. Today's most cutting-edge companies such as Apple, Netflix, Facebook, and Uber have deployed Spark at massive scale, processing petabytes of data to deliver innovations -- from detecting fraudulent behavior to delivering personalized experiences in real-time -- that are transforming every industry. Behind these groundbreaking innovations are a small, but fast growing group of talented engineers, developers, and data scientists with deep knowledge of Apache Spark.

Don't be alarmed, but you're probably using the term AI wrong ZDNet


AI is a term that gets bandied about a lot these days. But what does it really mean? Luis Perez-Breva is a lecturer and research scientist at MIT's School of Engineering and the originator and lead Instructor of the MIT Innovation Teams Program. He's the author of Innovating: A Doer's Manifesto for Starting from a Hunch, Prototyping Problems, Scaling Up, and Learning to Be Productively Wrong. He knows a lot about what AI is and how it will impact our lives going forward. He also knows a lot about what AI isn't. I recently got a chance to pick his brain, and hopefully clear a few things up.

How to Set Up an AI Center of Excellence


Artificial intelligence is one of the most powerful technologies for reshaping business in decades. It has the ability to optimize many processes throughout organizations and is already the engine behind some of the world's most valuable platform businesses. In our view AI will become a permanent aspect of the business landscape and AI capabilities need to be sustainable over time in order to develop and support potential new business models and capabilities. Specifically, we believe that companies need to establish dedicated organizational units to entrench AI. This is an important business tool that cannot be left to bottom-up whimsy.

Will talking to AI voice assistants re-engineer our human conversations? -- GCN


When you're lost, Siri can be your best friend. But if she can't retrieve the right address from your contacts, she can drive you crazy. And so it is with the legion of virtual personal assistants that are entering our lives. From Amazon's Alexa to Google's Home, people are busy talking to intelligent machines as never before. It's estimated that more than 60 percent of internet traffic is now generated by machine-to-machine, and person-to-machine, communication.

Facebook hits back at claims it is using '10-year challenge' to train its AI

Daily Mail

The 10-year challenge meme may seem harmless, but a new report claims users' selfies could be ammunition for far more nefarious purposes. Millions of internet users have participated in the meme, where they upload a photo of themselves from 2009 and a snapshot of themselves from this year. Some have since claimed that users' selfies could unknowingly be used as part of a dataset for Facebook's facial recognition algorithm to learn age progression and age recognition, according to Wired. The report argues that photos uploaded with the #10yearchallenge would make it easy for a facial recognition algorithm to study a set of before-and-after photos. In the best case scenario, this data could be used to help find missing children, using an age progression algorithm, Wired noted.

In the fourth installment of Hill.TV's Boundless docuseries, we explore the development of artificial intelligence and how it could help make humans better problem solvers.

Het vizier op de tech industrie


In my twelve years at Google, I've seen that big things happen when you don't shy away from big ideas--especially when you pair those ideas with emerging technology. We're trying to encourage more of that kind of thinking with the Google AI Impact Challenge, a call for organizations to use AI to help address social, humanitarian and environmental problems. Before you read on, remember this: there are only seven days left to apply to the Challenge! Hundreds of nonprofits and research organizations have already applied, and there's good reason for all the excitement. Recently, we collaborated with McKinsey on research to identify ways AI can drive social change.
