Machine Learning for Text Analytics is Getting a Boost

#artificialintelligence

BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Oct. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Megaputer Intelligence, Inc. will share an innovative new tool for building training datasets for use in machine learning during a presentation at the Text Analytics Forum '19 held in Washington, DC on November 7. Dr. Sergei Ananyan, CEO of Megaputer Intelligence, Inc., will present a cutting-edge topic entitled, "NLP & Rule-Based Approach for Fact Extraction: Launchpad for Machine Learning Techniques" on Thursday, November 7 at 11:15 AM EST. The Text Analytics Forum will host the presentation at the JW Marriott in Washington, DC as part of its comprehensive programming, running from Nov 4-7. The content of the presentation is designed for people interested in discovering how to achieve higher accuracy from machine learning, relieve the burden of needing experts to manually create a gold standard training dataset, and illuminate the black box surrounding machine learning as much as possible with insight into today's latest technological advances. Professionals such as text analysts, data scientists, DBAs, information knowledge architects, knowledge organizers, taxonomists, ontologists, CIOs, CKOs, research scientists, and data quality managers will benefit greatly from this technique to overcome well-known challenges of machine learning. One fundamental obstacle for using machine learning (ML) to accurately extract facts from free-text documents is that it requires huge quantities of pre-categorized data for training a model.


Can Fair Use Make for Fairer AI? Public Books

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence has a copyright problem, and this problem is deeply related to questions of ethics and justice. Increasingly, AI is adopted by our banks and our bosses, by our cars and our courts. Across the board, implicit bias remains a significant and complex problem. Several examples have become emblematic of the ways in which implicit bias can channel AI in a prejudiced direction. The Nikon camera that kept asking whether Taiwanese American blogger Joz Wang and her family members were "blinking" while they were taking photographs, for instance, or the time when Google Photos tagged two black friends as "gorillas."


Use of AI in Healthcare Picking Up Momentum, Report Shows 7wData

#artificialintelligence

Interest in artificial intelligence (AI) is soaring in the healthcare industry, according to a recent Optum survey of 500 US healthcare executives from hospitals, health plans, life sciences organizations, and pharmaceutical and device companies. The survey found an 88% increase this year in the number of healthcare leaders who said their organizations are implementing an AI strategy compared to 2018. Sixty-two percent of the respondents said they had implemented such a strategy, up from 33% last year. The average organization expected to invest $39.7 million in AI over the next 5 years ― $7.3 million more than was estimated last year, Optum found. Many respondents also anticipated a return on investment (ROI) in the near term.


Gartner Announces Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends For 2020

#artificialintelligence

Today Gartner, Inc. announced its top ten strategic technology trends for 2020. Analysts presented their findings during Gartner IT Symposium in Orlando. Gartner defines a strategic technology trend as "one with substantial disruptive potential that is beginning to break out of an emerging state into broader impact and use, or which is rapidly growing with a high degree of volatility reaching tipping points over the next five years." David Cearley, vice president and Gartner Fellow said, "People-centric smart spaces are the structure used to organize and evaluate the primary impact of the Gartner top strategic technology trends for 2020. Putting people at the center of your technology strategy highlights one of the most important aspects of technology -- how it impacts customers, employees, business partners, society or other key constituencies. Arguably all actions of the organization can be attributed to how it impacts these individuals and groups either directly or indirectly. This is a people-centric approach."


Does the Future of Robots Get You Excited, or Fill You With Dread?

#artificialintelligence

Find all our Student Opinion questions here. Last week, a robotic hand successfully solved a Rubik's Cube. While that feat might seem like a fun parlor trick, it's a sign that robots are being programmed to learn and not just memorize. Robots are already playing important roles inside retail giants like Amazon and manufacturing companies like Foxconn by completing very specific, repetitive tasks. But many believe that machine learning will ultimately allow robots to master a much wider array of more complex functions.

Human augmentation conjures up visions of futuristic cyborgs, but humans have been augmenting parts of the body for hundreds of years. Glasses, hearing aids and prosthetics evolved into cochlear implants and wearables. Even laser eye surgery has become commonplace. But what if scientists could augment the brain to increase memory storage, or implant a chip to decode neural patterns? What if exoskeletons became a standard uniform for autoworkers, enabling them to lift superhuman weights?


AI detects changes 'invisible' to humans, helps radiologists ID breast cancer

#artificialintelligence

Trained on nearly 1 million screening mammography images, researchers from New York University found their algorithm could push radiologists' ability to accurately identify breast cancer to nearly 90%. The researchers published their findings earlier this month in IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging.

Google Starts Drone Deliveries Directly To Homes

#artificialintelligence

Google is taking packages into the air to customers' homes. The first drone home deliveries of packages from Walgreens have started from Wing, the Alphabet subsidiary. Wing recently received an expanded Air Carrier Certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration allowing the first commercial air delivery service by drone directly to homes in the U.S. The FAA permissions are the first allowing multiple pilots to oversee multiple unmanned aircraft making commercial deliveries to the general public simultaneously. Collaborating with Federal Express and Virginia retailer Sugar Magnolia, Wing began delivering over-the-counter medication, gifts and snacks to residents of Christiansburg, Virginia. FedEx completed the first scheduled ecommerce drone delivery on Friday, essentially beginning the connection of retailers to last-mile drone delivery services.
