Adapted machine learning models will allow for better understanding of federal surveys

#artificialintelligence

Modern machine learning methods have enabled major advances in analyzing big data, but the current state-of-the-art technology is not suited for the intricacies of surveys that use complex sampling methods. With the support of a three-year, $337,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, Assistant Professor of Statistics Paul Parker will develop statistical and machine learning methods to best suit the analysis of complex surveys produced by federal statistics agencies.


Custom Named Entity Recognition with BERT

#artificialintelligence

In this article we will use some concepts that I have already introduced in my previous article. BERT is a language model based heavily on the Transformer encoder. If you are unfamiliar with Transformers I recommend reading this amazing article. In the masked language model (MLM), an input word (or token) is masked and BERT has to try to figure out what the masked word is. For the next sentence prediction (NSP) task, two sentences are given in input to BERT, and he has to figure out whether the second sentence follows semantically from the first one.


Punk Crab - Artificial Intelligence (AI) paintings

#artificialintelligence

Artists are using computer programs with machine learning algorithms to generate the images. We use AI to create abstract digital art paintings that would be impossible for humans to create on their own. Artificial intelligence art is a fascinating and rapidly growing field. Don t miss to own one of its early creations.


Regulators should encourage adoption of fair-lending algorithms

#artificialintelligence

In 1869, the English judge Baron Bramwell rejected the idea that "because the world gets wiser as it gets older, therefore it was foolish before." Financial regulators should adopt this same reasoning when reviewing financial institutions' efforts to make their lending practices fairer using advanced technology like artificial intelligence and machine learning. If regulators don't, they risk holding back progress by incentivizing financial institutions to stick with the status quo rather than actively look for ways to make lending more inclusive. The simple, but powerful, concept articulated by Bramwell underpins a central public policy pillar: You can't use evidence that someone improved something against them to prove wrongdoing. In law this is called the doctrine of "subsequent remedial measures." It incentivizes people to continually improve products, experiences and outcomes without fear that their efforts will be used against them.


Global Big Data Conference

#artificialintelligence

Nearly two years after a global pandemic sent most banking customers online, the majority of financial institutions appear to be embracing digital transformation. But many still have a long way to go. For example, a recent survey of mid-sized U.S. financial institutions by Cornerstone Advisors found that 90% of respondents have launched, or are in the process of developing, a digital transformation strategy--but only 36% said they are halfway through. I believe that one of the reasons behind the lag in uptake is many banks' new reluctance to use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies. The responsible application of explainable, ethical AI and machine learning is critical in analyzing and ultimately monetizing the manifold customer data that is a byproduct of any institution's effective digital transformation.


Aurora's Autonomous Tests in Texas Keep Rolling

#artificialintelligence

After lumbering through a gravel parking lot like a big blue bull, one of Aurora Innovation Inc.'s self-driving truck prototypes took a wide right turn onto a frontage road near Dallas. The steering wheel spun through the half-clasped hands of its human operator, whose touch may not be needed much longer. Fittingly for Texas, these Peterbilts are adorned with a sensor display above the windshield that looks much like a set of longhorns. This was the beginning of a 28-mile jaunt up and down Interstate 45 toward Houston in a truck with a computer for a brain, and cameras, radar and lidar sensors for eyes, capturing objects more than 437 yards out in all directions. The stakes for test drives like this one are incredibly high for the future of freight.


Linear Machine Learning Algorithms: An Overview - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Linear machine learning algorithms assume a linear relationship between the features and the target variable. In this article, we'll discuss several linear algorithms and their concepts. Here's a glimpse into what you can expect to learn: You can use linear algorithms for classification and regression problems. Let's start by looking at different algorithms and what problems they solve. Linear regression is arguably one of the oldest and most popular algorithms.


How Artificial Intelligence will change the future of Online Shopping?

#artificialintelligence

The days when switching from a brick-and-mortar store to an online store was considered a significant modification to the business model are long gone. Thanks to artificial intelligence (AI), the hottest trend in online shopping, the surge of new technologies has radically changed the way people shop. Artificial intelligence (AI) is not a future technology; rather, it is a very real and unavoidable part of the modern era. Artificial intelligence is transforming the retail sector. Retailers may use AI to communicate with customers and operate more efficiently, from deploying cutting-edge tools to customize marketing campaigns to implementing ML for inventory management.



Three Areas of Compute

#artificialintelligence

In our ongoing series about autonomous vehicles, this week we will step back and describe the three distinct areas of compute that have and are emerging in modern vehicles. The three areas are: microcontrollers, infotainment and autonomy. Microcontroller based compute is the oldest of the three and has been around almost as long as semiconductors have been manufactured at scale. There are a variety of different microcontrollers in a modern vehicle, to handle different discreet functions such as power doors, in-car lighting, automatic transmission, braking etc. These well understood and relatively inexpensive parts are produced in large volume every year by well-known suppliers such as ST Microelectronics, Infineon, NXP and TI.
