It's Time to Rethink Machine Learning Models in Financial Services


Richard Harmon, Managing Director of Financial Services at Cloudera, discusses the importance of relevant machine learning models in today's age, and how the financial sector can prepare for future changes. The past six months have been turbulent. Business disruptions and closures are happening at an unprecedented scale and impacting the economy in a profound way. In the financial services sector, S&P Global estimates that this year could quadruple UK bank credit losses. The economic uncertainty in the UK is heightened by Brexit, which will see the UK leave the European Union in 2021.

Massachusetts not tracking coronavirus outbreaks in schools even as health officials say they're 'inevitable'

Boston Herald

The state said it has no formal reporting process for tracking coronavirus outbreaks that have already cropped up in summer school programs, leaving teachers unions wondering how health officials plan to prevent outbreaks considered "inevitable" in the fall. "We are not formally tracking them, but we are trying to notice them as they pop up," said Department of Elementary and Secondary Education spokeswoman Jacqueline Reis. "There is no formal reporting process for schools." Reis said the DESE is still finalizing its guidance as schools shore up their plans for remote, in-person or hybrid learning once classes resume in September. "It's absurd and it's stunning but its also not a surprise," said Merrie Najimy, who leads the Massachusetts Teachers Association.

GPT-3 Creative Fiction


What if I told a story here, how would that story start?" Thus, the summarization prompt: "My second grader asked me what this passage means: …" When a given prompt isn't working and GPT-3 keeps pivoting into other modes of completion, that may mean that one hasn't constrained it enough by imitating a correct output, and one needs to go further; writing the first few words or sentence of the target output may be necessary.

In-Depth Guide to Machine Learning in the Enterprise


Machine learning for enterprise use is exploding. Machine learning is a pathway to creating artificial intelligence, which in turn is one of the primary drivers of machine learning use in the enterprise. In general, AI aims to replicate some aspect of human perception or decision-making, whereas machine learning can be used to enhance or automate virtually any task, not just ones related to human cognition. However you view them, the two concepts are closely linked, and they are feeding off each other's popularity. The practice of machine learning involves taking data, examining it for patterns and developing some sort of prediction about future outcomes.

20 Questions to excel in Machine Learning Interview


Bias is error due to erroneous or overly simplistic assumptions in the learning algorithm you're using. This can lead to the model underfitting your data, making it hard for it to have high predictive accuracy and for you to generalize your knowledge from the training set to the test set. Variance is error due to too much complexity in the learning algorithm you're using. This leads to the algorithm being highly sensitive to high degrees of variation in your training data, which can lead your model to overfit the data. You'll be carrying too much noise from your training data for your model to be very useful for your test data.

What are AI and machine learning adding to threat intelligence – brains, brawn or both? - Security Boulevard


Too much information and not enough time. This, and the cost of labor, is why machines have been at the forefront of cyber defense for almost 50 years. It is also why new breakthroughs in software development, neural networks, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) are constantly harnessed by providers and consumers of threat intelligence. As with any apparently game-changing technology, the benefits and drawbacks of artificial intelligence (AI) should be qualified by an accurate definition of what AI means. The term has become so ubiquitous in the materials than describe cyber vendors' products (for example), and so quickly, that the only logical conclusion is that the bar for what constitutes AI is set rather low.

Enterprise Apps adopt AI in the Golden Age of AI


The demand for AI continues to increase according to forecasts by International Data Corporation. Enterprises will adopt AI in 2020 with an estimated 16% surge compared to previous years. Diversity is enabling the growth of AI as companies rely on AI for decision-making with bias incidents reducing according to the IDC report. The customer experience from AI is growing as enterprises analyze interactions, and respond to queries in real-time. Automated AI systems are offering customer support, an area humans have faced challenges because of physical limitations.

Machine learning will help to grow artificial organs – IAM Network


Akbar Solo Researchers in Moscow and America have discovered how to use machine learning to grow artificial organs, especially to tackle blindness Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Ivannikov Institute for System Programming, and the Harvard Medical School-affiliated Schepens Eye Research Institute have developed a neural network capable of recognizing retinal tissues during the process of their differentiation in a dish. Unlike humans, the algorithm achieves this without the need to modify cells, making the method suitable for growing retinal tissue for developing cell replacement therapies to treat blindness and conducting research into new drugs. The study was published in Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience. How would this enable easier organ growth? This would allow to expand the applications of the technology for multiple fields including the drug discovery and development of cell replacement therapies to treat blindnessIn multicellular organisms, the cells making up different organs and tissues are not the same.

Europe and AI: Leading, Lagging Behind, or Carving Its Own Way?


For its AI ecosystem to thrive, Europe needs to find a way to protect its research base, encourage governments to be early adopters, foster its startup ecosystem, expand international links, and develop AI technologies as well as leverage their use efficiently.
