Sweet IoT Journey: How One Solution Provider Helped Implement Microsoft Azure Machine Learning At Hershey

#artificialintelligence

An early dive into the Internet of Things landscape yielded sweet rewards for The Hershey Company once the chocolate manufacturer began tracking the weight of Twizzlers during production. Morinigo said the advent of scalable cloud-based analytics – Microsoft Azure Machine Learning, in this case – became a catalyst for the Twizzlers project because it reduced technical barriers involved in implementing data science capabilities. At New Signature, a Microsoft systems integrator, Morinigo said he was able to build an IoT and advanced analytics team because he felt the scalability of the cloud finally enabled business intelligence initiatives for significant success. Completed in just two weeks, the first model built by Hershey and New Signature achieved 60 percent accuracy – not perfect, but a step in the right direction when it came to implementing IoT.

Meet The Startups That Bring Artificial Intelligence To Log Management And Analysis

#artificialintelligence

By bringing Machine Learning to log analysis, the systems become smart by becoming proactive. Sensing the opportunity in algorithmic log management, a few startups have built viable business models in the space of Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). Perspica, the San Jose-based startup was found in 2014 by JF Huard, ex-CTO of Netuitive, Inc. Like most of its competitors, it promises to deliver artificial intelligence powered analytics and observability for TechOps and DevOps. It integrates with mainstream monitoring systems, log aggregation engines and Big Data platforms.


Industry News: Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for the week ending September 18, 2017

#artificialintelligence

There are different frameworks, libraries, applications, toolkits, and datasets in the machine learning world that can be very confusing, especially if you're a beginner. Add to that investment professionals' continuing struggle to fully incorporate the low, or negative, interest rate environment into the portfolio management process. It seems, like everything else in business, that the buzzwords of AI, big data and machine learning continue to generate noise as the saviours of human roles struggling to keep afloat with the challenges that the same tech revolution has created…. Detecting iceberg orders using ordinary machine learning methods is difficult, but obvious upon human inspection.


Five lessons banks can learn from disrupted industries

#artificialintelligence

Online banking has made access to banking services easier than ever for millions of people and in the process reduced the need for an extensive branch network. Patients can also take photos of meals, which are then available for their doctor to view, giving much more insight into patients' lifestyles and potential risks," says Rowan Scranage at Couchbase. "Early applications for AI have spread through many industries, from healthcare where providers are starting to use cognitive analytics to aid in the diagnosis of patients, to consumer products such as Apple's Siri, with varying degrees of success," says Dr Richard Harmon, director of Europe, Middle East and Africa financial services at Cloudera. By making it easier to access banking on the go and present pertinent products to users on mobile, based on extensive customer data, conventional banks can utilise the most user-friendly elements of startup banks.


Towards Artificial General Intelligence in Enterprise – Data Science Driven by Statistics Requires New Qualitative Analytics to Model Disruptive Changes

@machinelearnbot

Statistical solutions use inductive rationale to predict outcome based on voluminous historical data. Disruptive changes require deductive and abductive rationale to find solutions on new facts when historical data on such facts does not exists. We propose a comprehensive solution that would enable enterprises to use Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) to discover new relevant subjects, so as to discover and augment existing quantitative analysis with new or previously unknown domain variables. The real-time aspect of tactical and strategic execution requires new analytic methods on qualitative data.Meta Vision Analysis and Bionic Fusion Analysis enable enterprise organizations to transcend this limitation and dynamically discover relevant domain variables, drawing insights for real-time execution by "connecting the dots".


Adding Stanford CoreNLP To Big Data Pipelines (Apache NiFi 1.1/HDF 2.1) Part 1 of 2 - Hortonworks

@machinelearnbot

The latest version of Stanford CoreNLP includes a server that you can run and access via REST API. CoreNLP adds a lot of features, but the one most interesting to me is Sentiment Analysis. You can call the Stanford Server via wget and curl. Another simple option for Sentiment Analysis and NLP integration is to use Apache NiFi's ExecuteScript to call various Python libraries.


Begin your cognitive enterprise journey at DataWorks Summit Sydney

#artificialintelligence

IBM Big SQL is a hybrid SQL engine for Hadoop that enables you to easily query big data across the enterprise.Big SQL allows organizations to access data across Hadoop and relational databases, whether they're on the cloud, on premises, or both, using a single database connection. IBM Data Science Experience (DSX), together with Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), accelerates adoption of data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence for businesses and enterprises. In addition, Hortonworks support for Power Systems means data scientists can easily tap into GPU-accelerated deep learning training at scale with the industry-leading IBM PowerAI solution. Ranging from a personalized recommendation engine to improved sales to next best action use cases that improve efficiencies of customer service, companies are deploying data science and machine learning to detect anomalies at scale and to efficiently manage fraud detection and cyber security.

@machinelearnbot

After reading a bunch of job postings, I figured out that all it will take to become a real data scientist is five PhD's and 87 years of job experience. The field we call data science is still relatively young, yet already too broad for an individual to be an expert in every corner of it. We are all part generalist and part specialist. This distinction can be helpful when hiring data scientists too.
