Three Use Cases of AI and Machine Learning Technology You May Not Know

#artificialintelligence

Even though we're far from achieving critical mass in the legal profession when it comes to the use of predictive coding technologies and approaches in electronic discovery, the use of predictive coding for document review – especially relevancy review – to support discovery is certainly the most common use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies. Some of you reading this blog post may be "old pros" at this point when it comes to the use of predictive coding while others of you still have yet to "dip your toes" into the predictive coding pool. But applying machine learning technology to support document review (which is predictive coding) is far from the only discovery-related workflow and use case where AI and machine learning technology can be applied. There are several others that forward-thinking organizations are looking to also implement to streamline workflows in the discovery life cycle. How could we forget one of the "forgotten ends" that I discussed last week?

A perspective on the history of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) history consists of original work and research by not only mathematicians and computer scientists, but studies by psychologists, physicists, and economists have also been much used. The timeline consists of the pre-1950 era of statistical methods to present AlphaZero in 2017 and more. The most significant push in the development of technology was during the 2nd world war where both the allied forces and their enemies worked hard to develop technology which can help them get superiority over others. The timeline started in 1943, work by McCulloch and Pitts on Artificial Neuron gets the recognition of first work on AI. After work done by and McCulloch, Donald Hebb demonstrated rule for modifying connection strings between neurons -- this is called Hebbian learning.

The 13 Best Machine Learning Certifications Online for 2021

#artificialintelligence

The editors at Solutions Review have compiled this list of the best machine learning certifications online to consider acquiring. Machine learning involves studying computer algorithms that improve automatically through experience. It is a sub-field of artificial intelligence where machine learning algorithms build models based on sample (or training) data. Once a predictive model is constructed it can be used to make predictions or decisions without being specifically commanded to do so. Machine learning is now a mainstream technology with a wide variety of uses and applications.


Tech Giants have Robust Hiring Plans for the Post-Pandemic World

#artificialintelligence

On May 4th, Infosys announced that it is planning to hire 1,000 workers in the next three years to support the UK economy post the pandemic. These fresh hires would be working in the innovative digital space with disruptive technologies like artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and data analytics. The employees will also be provided with critical training and mentoring. Infosys said that it will mostly hire fresh graduates from different universities in the UK and the new recruits will be working in Infosys' design studio in Shoreditch, an innovation center in Canary Wharf, proximity centers in Nottingham, and other client locations across the country. Infosys is globally recognized as a top employer and this initiative will enable to bridge the gap that occurred in recent digital transformations across different industries.


US Navy seizes weapons in Arabian Sea likely bound for Yemen

FOX News

Fox News Flash top headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com. The U.S. Navy announced Sunday it seized an arms shipment of thousands of assault weapons, machines guns and sniper rifles hidden aboard a ship in the Arabian Sea, apparently bound for Yemen to support the country's Houthi rebels. An American defense official told The Associated Press that the Navy's initial investigation found the vessel came from Iran, again tying the Islamic Republic to arming the Houthis despite a United Nations arms embargo. Iran's mission to the U.N. did not immediately respond to a request for comment, though Tehran has denied in the past giving the rebels weapons.


Stock Price Prediction Using Python & Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

In this tutorial will show you how to write a Python program that predicts the price of stocks using two different Machine Learning Algorithms, one is called a Support Vector Regression (SVR) and the other is Linear Regression. So you can start trading and making money! Actually this program is really simple and I doubt any major profit will be made from this program, but it's slightly better than guessing! In this video will show you how to write a Python program that predicts the price of stocks using two different Machine Learning Algorithms, one is called a Support Vector Regression (SVR) and the other is Linear Regression.

AI is ready to take on a massive healthcare challenge – TechCrunch

If you guessed diabetes, cancer, heart disease or even obesity, you guessed wrong. Reaching a mammoth financial burden of $966 billion in 2019, the cost of rare diseases far outpaced diabetes ($327 billion), cancer ($174 billion), heart disease ($214 billion) and other chronic diseases. It's not surprising that rare diseases didn't come to mind. By definition, a rare disease affects fewer than 200,000 people. However, collectively, there are thousands of rare diseases and those affect around 400 million people worldwide.


Artificial Intelligence Develops an Ear for Birdsong

#artificialintelligence

We can learn a lot from nature if we listen to it more--and scientists around the world are trying to do just that. From mountain peaks to ocean depths, biologists are increasingly planting audio recorders to unobtrusively eavesdrop on the groans, shrieks, whistles and songs of whales, elephants, bats and especially birds. This summer, for example, more than 2,000 electronic ears will record the soundscape of California's Sierra Nevada mountain range, generating nearly a million hours of audio. To avoid spending multiple human lifetimes decoding it, researchers are relying on artificial intelligence. Such recordings can create valuable snapshots of animal communities and help conservationists understand, in vivid detail, how policies and management practices affect an entire population.
