Coronavirus Will Finally Give Artificial Intelligence Its Moment


As the coronavirus pandemic continues, Bloomberg Opinion will be running a series of features by our columnists that consider the long-term consequences of the crisis. This column is part of a package on the future of tech and innovation. For years, artificial intelligence seemed on the cusp of becoming the next big thing in technology -- but the reality never matched the hype. Now, the changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic may mean AI's moment is finally upon us. Over the past couple of months, many technology executives have shared a refrain: Companies need to rejigger their operations for a remote-working world.

Introduction to Machine Learning For Beginners [A to Z] 2020


To provide awareness of the two most integral branches (i.e. To build appropriate neural models from using state-of-the-art python framework. To build neural models from scratch, following step-by-step instructions. To build end - to - end solutions to resolve real-world problems by using appropriate Machine Learning techniques from a pool of techniques available. To use ML evaluation methodologies to compare and contrast supervised and unsupervised ML algorithms using an established machine learning framework.

Silverstream Wins Innovate UK KTP Grant To Advance Machine Learning In Maritime


Silverstream Technologies, the leading air lubrication manufacturer for the shipping industry, in collaboration with the University of Southampton, has been awarded an Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) grant to advance machine learning in the maritime sector, the organisations have announced today. The two-year partnership will see an Associate of the University of Southampton, secured under the programme, work with Silverstream's Technical Team with the goal to advance machine learning and artificial intelligence within the Silverstream System's control and automation module. The Silverstream System uses air lubrication to reduce frictional resistance between a vessel's hull and the water and delivers fuel savings of 5-10% depending on the vessel and its operating profile. The KTP will aim to increase this saving by analysing operational data taken from installed systems. This data, when combined with cutting edge machine learning techniques, will help to further increase Silverstream System performance during a voyage, with the goal of gaining the theoretical maximum savings associated with the technology every time it is operating.

Hawaii Is Finally Making It Easier for Tourists to Visit. Is That Smart?


Hawaii is ready for its midpandemic tourism boom. Starting on Aug. 1, tourists looking to visit Hawaii will be able to bypass the state's two-week quarantine requirement for arrivals by getting a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours before landing in the state. Visitors can also have their quarantines cut short if they receive negative test results during those two weeks. The same rules will also apply to residents returning to the islands. Hawaii won't pay for the tests; travelers will have to handle that themselves before departure, though screeners will still administer temperature checks at airports.

3 AI Healthcare Stocks to Ride Out the Coronavirus Resurgence


The implementation of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the healthcare sector has been rather diverse and extensive over the past few months, owing to the coronavirus pandemic. The reliance on these technologies is growing, primarily because of their ability to simplify the assessment of complicated data and cases. Therefore, now would be the ideal time for one to look at a couple of AI stocks from an investment perspective. Looking closely at the growth prospects of AI in the healthcare sector, one finds can find many. According to a report by Markets and Markets, artificial intelligence in the global healthcare market is expected to grow from $4.9 billion in 2020 to $45.2 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 44.9%. While the major reasons for using artificial intelligence in healthcare are the rising volume of healthcare data and increasing complexities of datasets, the need to bring healthcare costs down, and improving computing power and lessening hardware costs.

How Machine Learning and AI are Transforming the Online Gambling Industry


Artificial intelligence offers boundless possibilities. Despite currently being used for solving practical tasks, experts believe we are only viewing the tip of the iceberg. But even the tip looks incredible already. Imagine playing a game of strategy and having a completely customized scenario, instead of following one of the scripted few. A personalized gaming reality, with unique conversations and decisions made right there and then.

Council Post: Five Steps To Developing A Data Science Culture


You've developed a platform that's gaining significant customer traction and enabling you to collect vast amounts of transaction and user data. Word gets out about your software, you acquire more users and feature requests start rolling in. As you develop and deliver those new features, you engage more users and collect even more data! There's tremendous value in that data, but limited thinking may be limiting your ability to mine it for the insights you need to further improve your product or even develop new ones that better meet the needs of your user base. Perhaps you've only gotten as far as creating simple plots and histograms around events, fault detection and other simple rules-based alerting and reporting.
