Computers have become adept at extracting patterns from very large collections of data. For example, shopping transactions can reveal consumers' preferences and message traffic on social networks can reveal political trends.

Technology, with its rapid evolution has been taking several industries across India by storm. Most experts in their field are welcoming developments like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) due to their effectiveness and lack of human involvement in accomplishing a host of tasks. With regards to the business of saving lives, this evolution is truly a relief, with speed being the biggest advantage, which the healthcare industry of the country is reliant on. AI has been making inroads in this sector to ensure not just a quick turnaround, but also accessibility to those in dire need of medical aid and care. IoT too, is gradually being recognised as a key contributor to cause a paradigm shift in the industry.
Anomaly Detection is the identification of rare occurrences, items, or events of concern due to their differing characteristics from majority of the processed data. Anomalies, or outliers as they are also called, can represent security errors, structural defects, and even bank fraud or medical problems. There are three main forms of anomaly detection. The first type of anomaly detection is unsupervised anomaly detection. This technique detects anomalies in an unlabeled data set by comparing data points to each other, establishing a baseline "normal" outline for the data, and looking for differences between the points.
The UK Government has invested $28 million in several high-tech farming projects, which are aimed at cutting down pollution, minimizing waste and producing more food. The investment is part of the Government's modern Industrial Strategy, for which the UK has committed to boost R&D spending to 2.4 percent of GDP by 2027. The projects include Warwickshire-based Rootwave, which will use a $875,000 grant to use electricity instead of chemicals to kill weeds from the roots, avoiding damage to crops. Tuberscan, in Lincolnshire, will use $496,000 to develop ground penetrating radar, underground scans and artificial intelligence (AI) to monitor potato crops and identify when they are ready to harvest. The government hopes the technology will increase the usable crop by an estimated 5 to 10%, as well as reducing food waste with minimal additional costs.
Machine learning has grown to have a significant impact on our daily lives: From Amazon's home assistant Alexa collecting and analyzing information to anticipate our needs, or Facebook suggesting who we should friend, to applications protecting us from credit card fraud and improving online shopping experiences. Organizations want their data to do the heavy lifting for them, driven by the desire to save on costs, improve consistency and streamline operations. While ML technologies were previously perceived as an excessive expenditure, today they are seen as an investment in the business' future and a competitive revenue driver. In order to stay competitive and successful, organizations have to invest in the right technologies and intelligently use the skills and data systems that they already have. The following three tips will help enterprises evaluate ML benefits and investments and make the most of the technology they already have.

When you imagine what artificial intelligence (AI) "looks like," you might be thinking of a synthetic consciousness developed by humans, as many sci-fi movies portray. Apart from the realm of fantasy, AI is simply a system that can perform tasks that normally requires human intelligence. These include problem-solving, recognizing emotions, and even diagnosing diseases. AI marketing is a method of leveraging technology to improve the customer journey. It can also be used to boost the return on investment (ROI) of marketing campaigns.
There's been plenty of hype over artificial intelligence, no question. But there are highly practical ways that CFOs can use AI right now to bring new efficiencies to the enterprise. Here are five of them. The CFO sits at the center of customer data flows: sales data, pricing information, receivables updates -- the list goes on. This puts the CFO in a powerful position to link predictive analytics with customer behavior.
Digital transformation is one of those infuriating buzzwords because it's both slightly meaningless and also a very sound but obvious idea; the same is true for'digitalization'. Data is being generated about the activities of people and inanimate objects on a massive and increasing scale. We examine how much data is involved, how much might be useful, what tools and techniques are available to analyse it, and whether businesses are actually getting to grips with big data. Really, they're both code for'we already automated a lot of business processes and made them digital, but humans are complicated and rules aren't good at expressing complexity, so now we're trying to make things more flexible and powerful as we automate business processes with something better than a rules engine'. You can understand why some people glaze over when the term comes up.
