Machine Learning in Azure Security Center

#artificialintelligence

At Microsoft, we analyze 300 billion user authentications and check 200 billion emails for spam and malware monthly. We also have unprecedented visibility into cloud infrastructure choices, platforms and the activity therein. Such visibility has no precedent in the on-premises world.


Big Data and Machine Learning Lessons From Google Photos

#artificialintelligence

Several months ago, Google introduced Google Photos -- a breakthrough where Google helps people organize and access their photos at an unprecedented level. Big news for photographers, but the way Google Photos works also heralds a new age for Information Technology.


Why robots should be taxed if they take people's jobs Robert Shiller

#artificialintelligence

The idea of a tax on robots was raised last May in a draft report to the European parliament prepared by MEP Mady Delvaux from the committee on legal affairs. Emphasising how robots could boost inequality, the report proposed that there might be a "need to introduce corporate reporting requirements on the extent and proportion of the contribution of robotics and AI to the economic results of a company for the purpose of taxation and social security contributions".


Sorry, but your AI needs to go back to school

#artificialintelligence

Too often, engineers are brainwashed into thinking they can create an impeccable artificial intelligence (AI) model -- a blank slate they release into the wild for independent learning. They think: "If I create flawless math on top of the right infrastructure, I'll have the perfect model." Train the algorithm, let it run free, and that's the end of the story, right?



Russia's Self-Driving Car Company Is Coming For the World

A mysterious self-driving car company has been quietly expanding in recent years in the world's largest country. Now, Moscow-based Cognitive Technologies has hired a slew of new recruits and is ready to move to the U.S. in the coming months.


The future of government

#artificialintelligence

This week the World Government Summit took place in Dubai attracting considerable global interest. Though not immediately associated with excitement and anticipation, trends in government are receiving considerable attention. By 2020, 60 percent of the world's population will be living in cities, putting a huge strain on existing government operations. Increasingly it is clear that governments across the board have to overhaul their approach to be more streamlined, effective and dynamic. What had begun as a niche academic reference, "The future of government" is fast becoming a school in itself.


Machine learning MSPs increased bottom line

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning can be an advantage for MSPs today and may be an even bigger asset two years from now. That's certainly the case for Ensono, a hybrid IT solution provider based in Downers Grove, Illinois,...


Why it's back to basics with bots

#artificialintelligence

I occasionally meet with a company that worries they're not ready for bots. They think of bots as an emerging technology fraught with complexity. In some cases, they worry they don't have the skillset internally to deploy and get ROI out of the technology. Others want the technology to "mature" a bit more before they place a bet.


How artificial intelligence is affecting and improving transportation

#artificialintelligence

Levels of Driving Automation In 2014, SAE International established International Standard J3016, which created an overarching system used to define gradients in automated driving. Grading vehicles on a scale from 0 (no automation) to 5 (high automation), the standard makes a crucial distinction between Level 2 and Level 3, where the car takes on the task of monitoring the environment. Personalization What sets an artificial intelligence vehicle apart from simple autopilot is that AI can – and does – learn. Likewise, Yui can make driving safer and easier by taking increased control of driving functions or engaging tasks to keep the driver's focus up.
