Most popular programming language frameworks and tools for machine learning - TechRepublic


If you're wondering which of the growing suite of programming language libraries and tools are a good choice for implementing machine-learning models then help is at hand. More than 1,300 people mainly working in the tech, finance and healthcare revealed which machine-learning technologies they use at their firms, in a new O'Reilly survey. The list is a mix of software frameworks and libraries for data science favorite Python, big data platforms, and cloud-based services that handle each stage of the machine-learning pipeline. Most firms are still at the evaluation stage when it comes to using machine learning, or AI as the report refers to it, and the most common tools being implemented were those for'model visualization' and'automated model search and hyperparameter tuning'. Unsurprisingly, the most common form of ML being used was supervised learning, where a machine-learning model is trained using large amounts of labelled data.

[N] Microsoft is attempting to patent Active Machine Learning • r/MachineLearning


Technologies are described herein for active machine learning. An active machine learning method can include initiating active machine learning through an active machine learning system configured to train an auxiliary machine learning model to produce at least one new labeled observation, refining a capacity of a target machine learning model based on the active machine learning, and retraining the auxiliary machine learning model with the at least one new labeled observation subsequent to refining the capacity of the target machine learning model. Additionally, the target machine learning model is a limited-capacity machine learning model according to the description provided herein.

The 12 Coolest Machine-Learning Startups Of 2020


Artificial intelligence has been a hot technology area in recent years and machine learning, a subset of AI, is one of the most important segments of the whole AI arena. Machine learning is the development of intelligent algorithms and statistical models that improve software through experience without the need to explicitly code those improvements. A predictive analysis application, for example, can become more accurate over time through the use of machine learning. But machine learning has its challenges. Developing machine-learning models and systems requires a confluence of data science, data engineering and development skills.

Does Your Healthcare Organization Have the Chops for Machine Learning?


Machine learning and cloud computing are two of the fastest growing technologies in healthcare. Increased focus on accountable care and a growing trove of generated health data have forced many organizations to rethink their health IT infrastructure and embrace new innovations as part of their overall clinical and financial strategy. Harnessing the power of cloud and machine learning has become a distinct, competitive advantage for data-driven healthcare organizations looking to glean richer insights in a timely and more cost-efficient manner. Employing machine-learning algorithms allows organizations to piece together fragmented, often disconnected sources to gain predictive, actionable data insights across the enterprise. While advances in cognitive computing are helping organizations map care pathways and processes, reduce costs in care and garner patterns in patient data to treat and diagnose with greater accuracy, the task of implementing machine-learning projects comes with its challenges.

How Finance Can Use Machine Learning To Improve FP&A Practices


Breakthroughs in the application of complex calculations to large volumes of data have enabled machine-learning methodologies to revolutionize business processes in nearly every industry. Some of the more recognized examples of machine-learning applications include personalized Netflix recommendations and related product modules from online retailers such as Amazon and Nordstrom. However, there are less sexy yet equally impactful machine-learning examples, which include revenue management solutions used in hotels that incorporate these methodologies into an algorithmic engine to help produce pricing and inventory recommendations. Unlocking the potential of machine learning for the office of finance remains a hot topic for financial planning and analysis (FP&A) leaders, industry analysts, and technology vendors alike. Even more specifically, continuous chatter surrounds the ways that machine learning can improve future FP&A processes and how finance leaders can prepare for deploying advanced analytics within their organizations.
