World's first fully rotational skyscraper allows residents to control how much their apartments spin

The Independent - Tech

The world's first rotating skyscraper is set to be built in Dubai by 2020. The Dynamic Tower Hotel has been planned since 2008, having been proposed by Israeli-Italian architect David Fisher. It will stand at 1,375 feet tall, with each of its 80 storeys capable of rotating individually around a concrete core, offering 360-degree views of Dubai. Residents will be able to control rotation speeds and stop their apartment from spinning with voice commands. The skyscraper is expected to be completely self-powered, reportedly featuring as many as 79 horizontal-lying wind turbines between floors, as well as roof-mounted solar panels.


DATA SCIENCE AND MACHINE LEARNING WORKSHOP, DUBAI, UAE

#artificialintelligence

In collaboration with Data Science Middle East, The School of Data Science, UK and Persontyle, UK excited to present GCC's first professional workshop to learn the most demanded skills of 2016. The workshop will take participants through the conceptual and applied foundations of the subject. Labs are developed to practically learn how to use the R programming language and packages for applying the main concepts and techniques of data science and machine learning. The Workshop will provide participants with an applied introduction to data science industry practices and models of machine learning. The workshop has a strong focus on gaining hands-on experience implementing algorithms and building predictive models on real datasets.

Data Science Middle East (#DSME) in partnership with PAPIs are excited to announce this 2-day hands-on Machine Learning Workshop. Most Machine Learning courses are given from the perspective of a researcher/academic and focus on the theory and mathematics of the machine learning models. This workshop takes the perspective of learning by working on real machine learning problems using open source tools and platforms. "Just like development where you don't need to know a thing about computability or big-O notation to write code and ship useful and reliable software, you can work machine learning problems end-to-end without a background in statistics, probability and linear algebra."


Microsoft brings Dubai Bot to GITEX 2016 Zawya

#artificialintelligence

Visitors to the Dubai World Trade Centre's five-day event were surprised to learn just how far cognitive reasoning, natural-language processing and bot AI have come, as they wandered through specially constructed Experience Zones at Microsoft's stand. Dubai Bot, a showcase demo developed by Microsoft Gulf, acts as a virtual tour guide for visitors to the emirate, giving them an AI source for all their travel needs. It can suggest restaurants and entertainment venues; museums and beaches; and ideal attractions for children, parents or the lone traveller. The bot also helps with the more formal aspects of travel, such as booking a taxi, advising on use of the Metro or giving up-to-the-second updates on currency exchange rates. All of this interaction is based on the bot's knowledge of the user's circumstances, such as their length of stay, age and whether they are travelling alone or in company.


Machine Learning Workshop Dubai #MLDXB

#artificialintelligence

Most Machine Learning courses are given from the perspective of a researcher/academic and focus on the theory and mathematics of the machine learning models. This workshop takes the perspective of learning by working on real machine learning problems using open source tools and platforms. We'll go all the way from data preparation to the integration of predictive models in applications and their deployment in production. "Just like development where you don't need to know a thing about computability or big-O notation to write code and ship useful and reliable software, you can work machine learning problems end-to-end without a background in statistics, probability and linear algebra." The workshop is agnostic and features the best open source Python libraries (Pandas, scikit-learn, SKLL), APIs and ML-as-a-Service platforms (Microsoft Azure ML & Cortana Intelligence Suite, Amazon ML, BigML) for developers getting started in Machine Learning.
