How can investors use machine learning to pick the right startups?


When considering a startup, especially an early-stage startup, investors want to conduct as much due diligence as possible. What little data they can gather is scattered all over different sources including Crunchbase, LinkedIn, Pitchbooks, company websites, etc. Consolidating this data takes a great amount of time and effort. Furthermore, the data sets can be incomplete or biased depending on the search queries -- imagine overlooking a keyword. To make the due diligence process fairer and less cumbersome for investors, various platforms are using machine learning (ML) to pull together information about startups from all available resources to help investors assess companies and investment opportunities. But where machine learning really shines is in the interplay of data-driven insights that are qualified by human intuition and personal experience.

Machine Learning – the new catalyst in higher education


Did you ever use spell check in google? If you have then you used a machine learning algorithm. There are countless instances in an average person's day where he/she uses machine Learning. It has become a vital component in modern men's life. Driver less cars, Rovers in Mars, Weather predictions, Market share predictions, Speech Processing, Internet of things, Healthcare well these are just the tip of the iceberg.

IoT, AI and Blockchain: Catalysts for Digital Transformation


The digital revolution has brought with it a new way of thinking about manufacturing and operations. Emerging challenges associated with logistics and energy costs are influencing global production and associated distribution decisions. Significant advances in technology, including big data analytics, AI, Internet of Things, robotics and additive manufacturing, are shifting the capabilities and value proposition of global manufacturing. In response, manufacturing and operations require a digital renovation: the value chain must be redesigned and retooled and the workforce retrained. Total delivered cost must be analyzed to determine the best places to locate sources of supply, manufacturing and assembly operations around the world.



Health Catalyst believes machine learning is the life-saving technology that will transform healthcare. Machine learning challenges the traditional, reactive approach to healthcare. In fact, it's the exact opposite: predictive, proactive, and preventative--life-saving qualities that make it a critically essential capability in every health system. Health Catalyst is on a mission to help health systems save lives by making machine learning routine, actionable, and pervasive through catalyst.ai Some may ask whether machine learning is just a technology fad or whether it will provide true value in healthcare.

Artificial Intelligence: A Catalyst for a Better World…with Great Music


Do you believe that artificial intelligence is poised to significantly improve our societies, or do you imagine extreme dangers resulting from this technology in the future? Tech moguls Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have been publicly debating this issue recently, with Musk claiming that Zuckerberg's knowledge about AI is "limited". The Tesla CEO and outspoken innovator has been pushing for the proactive regulation of artificial intelligence based on his belief that the technology is a "fundamental existential risk for human civilization." On the other side, Zuckerberg has denounced Musk's warnings, calling his statements "pretty irresponsible." While many academics, such as Pedro Domingos, a professor who works on machine learning at the University of Michigan, believe that Musk's nightmare scenarios could eventually happen, but his perspective is entirely wrong.



Samsung's revamped Bixby takes on Amazon Alexa - Samsung announced it is upgrading its Bixby digital assistant and making it available for a range of connected devices, setting up a clash with Amazon's Alexa and others competing for leadership in artificial intelligence. The South Korean electronics giant, which is the world's biggest smartphone maker, launched Bixby last year but only for its own flagship Galaxy handsets....

Is Artificial Intelligence The Catalyst To Unlock The Power Of IoT?


And the two halves of this revolution will feed one another: The more information IoT can provide, the more quickly AI will develop and the greater its potential impact. The more AI advances, the more value it provides in the capacity to process information. Information is the lifeline of businesses and the currency of the future, and the capacity to handle that information (to gather it and process it) will be what creates the new mega-enterprises of the next two decades. Business leaders who have the ability and courage to bring together the power of IoT and AI to chart a course for their organizations will have the power to leave their competition in the dust and to dominate new areas of industry even before their competitors know the opportunity exists.



Simply put, machine learning and AI, in general, will become commonplace in our lives because we need them to be. Alongside development of the capability to process massive amounts of data in innovative ways, there exists another technical revolution whose time has also most definitely come -- the internet of things (IoT). If AI offers the promise of processing immense quantities of data in ways that we can't, then IoT provides the very tangible mechanism for generating that raw data in ways we might not expect. Perhaps more telling, there is already an emerging trend of AI development "following the data" in order to accelerate the capability to deliver human-machine interactions and insight based on the availability of more of those very same interactions.

X-ray data and machine learning reveal catalyst changes


It'd especially difficult to observe reactions between organic molecules involving catalysts, because the reactions can take place at extreme temperatures and pressure, often proceed via very short-lived and unstable intermediates formed by combinations of the reactants with the catalyst. This makes it difficult to determine the mechanism of the reaction, which in turn complicates the design of improved catalysts. The method relies on neural networks and machine learning to study previously-inaccessible information. However, the team realised that a part of the X-ray spectrum at a lower energy contained the information needed to determine the reaction intermediates.

The AIrt of persuasion


Homing in on targets An example that Pierce offers is how machine learning models can help hotels sift through customer data and group profiles for targeted and personalised messages. "Advances in machine learning have improved similar audience performance by double digits year on year. According to Juniper Research, machine learning algorithms being used to enable more efficient ad bids over rea time bids will generate some $42 billion in annual ad spend by 2021, up from $3.5 billion in 2016. However, Mehra thinks AI in creatives cannot replace humans in creating ads from start to finish.
