2020 No-Code AI & Machine Learning Using IBM Watson AutoAI

#artificialintelligence

In this course I am going to introduce you to Watson Studio AutoAI by IBM. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are two very hot topics nowadays. Experts claim that AI & ML are going to revolutionize the world. This course is designed for those who want to take a short cut to these technologies. Auto AI and Auto ML are new tools that provide methods and processes to make Artificial intelligence and Machine Learning available for non-experts.


GLTR from MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab and HarvardNLP

#artificialintelligence

Obviously, GLTR is not perfect. Its main limitation is its limited scale. It won't be able to automatically detect large-scale abuse, only individual cases. Moreover, it requires at least an advanced knowledge of the language to know whether an uncommon word does make sense at a position. Our assumption is also limited in that it assumes a simple sampling scheme.


IBM Teams Up With Ad Council for AI-Powered Program

#artificialintelligence

Randi Stipes, CMO at IBM Watson Advertising, explained that "Call for Creative" is IBM's commitment "to help the advertising industry reemerge stronger from Covid-19." Through this initiative, the tech company ultimately wants to demonstrate how artificial intelligence can drive positive change when used in a purposeful way, geared toward helping the ad industry get back on its feet after the detrimental effects of Covid-19. IBM had debuted the award-winning Advertising Accelerator tools with Watson earlier this year and gave access to the Ad Council, which it is partnering with for this project. The Accelerator harnesses AI to "continuously learn and predict the optimal combination of creative elements to help brands deploy more effective digital campaigns based on key signals like consumer reaction, weather and time of day," a statement from the company said. Brands that leveraged Accelerator experienced a 25% increase in performance throughout a campaign along with a 10% lift in site visits after one week, the statement continued.


Former IBM Watson Team Leader David Ferrucci on AI and Elemental Cognition

#artificialintelligence

Dr. David Ferrucci is one of the few people who have created a benchmark in the history of AI because when IBM Watson won Jeopardy we reached a milestone many thought impossible. I was very privileged to have Ferrucci on my podcast in early 2012 when we spent an hour on Watson's intricacies and importance. Well, it's been almost 8 years since our original conversation and it was time to catch up with David to talk about the things that have happened in the world of AI, the things that didn't happen but were supposed to, and our present and future in relation to Artificial Intelligence. All in all, I was super excited to have Ferrucci back on my podcast and hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did. During this 90 min interview with David Ferffucci, we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: his perspective on IBM Watson; AI, hype and human cognition; benchmarks on the singularity timeline; his move away from IBM to the biggest hedge fund in the world; Elemental Cognition and its goals, mission and architecture; Noam Chomsky and Marvin Minsky's skepticism of Watson; deductive, inductive and abductive learning; leading and managing from the architecture down; Black Box vs Open Box AI; CLARA – Collaborative Learning and Reading Agent and the best and worst applications thereof; the importance of meaning and whether AI can be the source of it; whether AI is the greatest danger humanity is facing today; why technology is a magnifying mirror; why the world is transformed by asking questions.


Financial institutions can gain new AI model risk management

#artificialintelligence

Many financial institutions are rapidly developing and adopting AI models. They're using the models to achieve new competitive advantages such as being able to make faster and more successful underwriting decisions. However, AI models introduce new risks. In a previous post, I describe why AI models increase risk exposure compared to the more traditional, rule-based models that have been in use for decades. In short, if AI models have been trained on biased data, lack explainability, or perform inadequately, they can expose organizations to as much as seven-figure losses or fines.


IBM Watson Gains The Ability To Understand Complex Topics

#artificialintelligence

IBM recently announced several new Watson technologies designed to help organizations identify, understand, and analyze some of the most challenging aspects of the English language with greater clarity and insights. These new features are considered the first commercialization of key Natural Language Processing (NLP) capabilities to come from IBM Research's Project Debater. There is a new advanced sentiment analysis feature defined to identify and analyze idioms and colloquialisms for the first time. So it can recognize phrases such as "hardly helpful" or "hot under the collar." Phrases like those have been challenging for artificial intelligence systems since they are difficult for algorithms to spot.


Analyzing and Improving a Watson Assistant Solution Part 3: Recipes for common analytic patterns

#artificialintelligence

In previous posts we explored what analysts want to discover about their virtual assistant and some building blocks for building analytics. In this post I will demonstrate some common recipes tailored to Watson Assistant logs. First we extract raw log events and store on the file system. This requires the apikey and URL for your skill. For a single-skill assistant you will also need the workspace ID (extractable from the "Legacy v1 Workspace URL"), for a multi-skill assistant there are other IDs you can use to filter on (described in the Watson Assistant list log events API).


IBM's Watson AI now understands idioms after 'sentiment' update

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence researchers at IBM have introduced a major upgrade to the famed Watson computer, allowing it to understand idioms and colloquialisms for the first time. IBM says the update makes it the first commercial AI system capable of identifying, understanding and analysing some of the most challenging aspects of the English language. Phrases like "hardly helpful" and "hot under the collar" are tricky for algorithms to spot, meaning AI is unable to debate complex topics or have nuanced conversations with humans. "Language is a tool for expressing thought and opinion, as much as it is a tool for information," said Rob Thomas, a general manager at IBM Data and AI. "This is why we believe that advancing our ability to capture, analyse, and understand more from language with NLP will help transform how businesses utilise their intellectual capital that is codified in data."


IBM's Watson Advances, Able To Understand The Language Of Business - Express Computer

#artificialintelligence

IBM is announcing several new IBM Watson technologies designed to help organizations begin identifying, understanding and analyzing some of the most challenging aspects of the English language with greater clarity, for greater insights. The new technologies represent the first commercialization of key Natural Language Processing (NLP) capabilities to come from IBM Research's Project Debater, the only AI system capable of debating humans on complex topics. For example, a new advanced sentiment analysis feature is defined to identify and analyze idioms and colloquialisms for the first time. Phrases, like'hardly helpful,' or'hot under the collar,' have been challenging for AI systems because they are difficult for algorithms to spot. With advanced sentiment analysis, businesses can begin analyzing such language data with Watson APIs for a more holistic understanding of their operation.


IBM Watson: how AI is transforming the supply chain

#artificialintelligence

The supply chain industry is in a state of transition and transformation. New technology such as AI, Big Data and machine learning is making life easier for industry executives as an ever-increasing number of companies begin to digitise their offerings. In order to stay ahead in a dynamic and continuously evolving industry, businesses must trial technology to increase efficiency. The technology giants, IBM Watson, understands the challenge that supply chains face. The company has announced Watson Supply Chain Insights, an AI-based solution that enables supply chain professionals to get through a data overload for enhanced visibility throughout the entire supply chain.
