Let's Talk Data Podcast Series


UPDATE Oct, 2019: We just added a new season with 4 new podcasts focused on artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, and data orchestration. Building a data foundation is essential to driving innovation. This is just as true for mid-market companies as for large enterprise companies. Mid-market and large enterprise companies have different challenges, so we've brought together experts from each size company to discuss key trends that are reshaping the way successful companies use their data: from data management and data foundation to spatial and machine learning to data-based process and information excellence. Listen to this chat series on all things data!

Artificial Intelligence is completely reinventing media and marketing.


When artificial intelligence is fully operational, it will transform the media and marketing industries. In particular, I believe that synthetic personalities powered by AI will change the way we learn about new products and how to use them. In my previous article, I showed how the collapse of broadcast TV exposed a huge weakness in the advertising industry. And I pointed to the nascent field known as Influencer Media, and especially Virtual Influencers, as a harbinger of the future of engagement brand-building. What happens when artificial intelligence is available to any app, any advertising campaign, and any brand marketer? How will that change things? Here's my answer: the media landscape will be transformed so deeply that it will be completely unrecognizable. All the leftover junk from the 20th century will be kaputt, including one-size-fits-all video programs for mass audiences, appointment viewing of a TV schedule and the very concept of TV channels, and the outdated intrusion of interruption advertising. Personalized programming and fully-responsive adbots will be the new norm.

'Tinder Granny' explains why she's quitting dating app for love in doc: 'I'm really out there and desirable'

FOX News

Hattie, nicknamed'Tinder Granny' by the press, explains why she's quitting the popular dating app on WETV's'Extreme Love.' At age 83, Hattie is no longer on the prowl for one-night stands. The grandmother of three, famously nicknamed "Tinder Granny" by the press for her voracious appetite of younger men and love of swiping right to prospective suitors, is the subject of WETV's reality show "Extreme Love," which explores how traditional ideas of love are reimagined across the country. She previously appeared in the 2012 documentary "Extreme Cougar Wives." "I never considered what I do to be extreme," Hattie told Fox News.

Distributed Multi-Player Bandits - a Game of Thrones Approach

Neural Information Processing Systems

We consider a multi-armed bandit game where N players compete for K arms for T turns. Each player has different expected rewards for the arms, and the instantaneous rewards are independent and identically distributed. Performance is measured using the expected sum of regrets, compared to the optimal assignment of arms to players. We assume that each player only knows her actions and the reward she received each turn. Players cannot observe the actions of other players, and no communication between players is possible.

Using A.I. to build a better human The Age of A.I.


Through life changing accidents, and data minded through NASCAR, human beings are finding ways to rebuild one another so that we are better, faster, and stronger than ever before and all with the help of A.I.. Once nothing more than the stuff of comic books and TV shows, we truly have the technology to become modern superheroes. The Age of A.I. is a 8 part documentary series hosted by Robert Downey Junior covering the ways Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Neural Networks will change the world.

CNN {2}: Viewpoint Generalization via a Binocular Vision

Neural Information Processing Systems

The Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) have laid the foundation for many techniques in various applications. Despite achieving remarkable performance in some tasks, the 3D viewpoint generalizability of CNNs is still far behind humans visual capabilities. Although recent efforts, such as the Capsule Networks, have been made to address this issue, these new models are either hard to train and/or incompatible with existing CNN-based techniques specialized for different applications. Observing that humans use binocular vision to understand the world, we study in this paper whether the 3D viewpoint generalizability of CNNs can be achieved via a binocular vision. We propose CNN {2}, a CNN that takes two images as input, which resembles the process of an object being viewed from the left eye and the right eye.

Fox's NeXt will make you think twice before starting up that conversation with Alexa


Tech experts have long warned about the dark side of virtual assistant AI, from Alexa to Siri, but the masses haven't listened. Now Fox is kicking it up a notch with their upcoming drama, NeXt, about Artificial Intelligence that gets super personal while creating human misery. Creator and executive producer Manny Coto brought his cast, including John Slattery, to Television Critic's Association winter press tour in Pasadena to give a first look at the series coming to Fox this spring. The NeXt in the title refers to an artificial intelligence project that takes its programming to extremes as it seeks to wipe out the humans who want to thwart its goals. Coto told reporters that the series idea actually came from a creepy incident involving his son and their Amazon Alexa.

CES 2020: EVs, 8K TVs and streaming – this is the future Sony says it's optimistic about

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Sony unveiled at CES 2020 its Vision-S– an electric concept car – as it looks forward to becoming a driving force on the road to the future. But don't look to the global tech and entertainment giant to challenge Tesla or GM, at least not anytime soon. Sony is not going to sell you your next car. "At this point in time, we have no plans for mass production," CEO Kenichiro Yoshida told USA TODAY in an exclusive sit-down at the Sony booth. Instead, Sony is focused on what goes into the car of the future, gathering real-time intelligence about road conditions and the environment in the name of safety.

Computers on wheels – don't be intimidated - Cape Business News


The advent of Artificial Intelligence into the world we live in is furiously gaining momentum, where products like Google Duplex, Amazon Alexa, and others are finding residence in more and more mobility applications. Everyday cars are becoming more and more technologically advanced. But, says Hedley Judd, National Director of the Tyre, Equipment, Parts Association (TEPA), an association of the Retail Motor Industry Organisation (RMI), this should not be intimidating but rather exciting news for motorists. The motor vehicle has an Engine Control Unit (ECU), Body Control Module (BCM), screens of different types, and of course the communication system to the outside world, either via a WIFI-linked hotspot or a Bluetooth link to the cell network. "The ECU and the BCM are both effectively computers with processors and memory that are programmed to function according to set rules depending on the external input from the engine or the vehicle via the driver. The screens referred to are the infotainment screen and nowadays in many vehicles the instrument cluster has become a computer-like screen as well. Finally, the communication language would be understandable to the drivers of today's vehicles."
