Cloud and Cognitive Computing: A Machine Learning Approach (MIT Press)

#artificialintelligence

This is the first textbook to teach students how to build data analytic solutions on large data sets (specifically in Internet of Things applications) using cloud-based technologies for data storage, transmission and mashup, and AI techniques to analyze this data. This textbook is designed to train college students to master modern cloud computing systems in operating principles, architecture design, machine learning algorithms, programming models and software tools for big data mining, analytics, and cognitive applications. The book will be suitable for use in one-semester computer science or electrical engineering courses on cloud computing, machine learning, cloud programming, cognitive computing, or big data science. The book will also be very useful as a reference for professionals who want to work in cloud computing and data science. Cloud and Cognitive Computing begins with two introductory chapters on fundamentals of cloud computing, data science, and adaptive computing that lay the foundation for the rest of the book.

Google's Plan to Take the Healthcare Industry By Storm

#artificialintelligence

Get ready for a shakeup: Google is setting its sights on the healthcare industry. Google built its empire by establishing itself as a monolith of search. Now, it intends to build another by doing the opposite: fragmenting its efforts to secure a multitude of "smaller" victories, each of them worth billions. Leveraging its colossal reserves and analytic prowess, Google is becoming, in effect, the largest healthcare startup incubator in history -- so who are these leading analytic minds at the helm of this effort? They're actually not minds at all, but advanced computers that can make decisions based on technology called "machine learning."

While that particular development may sound a bit uncanny, the truth is far more heartening than scary.
