Find Needles in Data Haystacks with Unsupervised Learning

#artificialintelligence

Manual data science for industrial processes can be extremely counter-productive, especially when businesses embracing the IIoT are greatly emphasizing superior dexterity in operations. Today, data science and machine learning professionals are faced with a daunting challenge. That's where unsupervised learning combined with cognitive predictive maintenance comes into play. This is precisely how our Cognitive Predictive Maintenance (CPdM) platform works to help save thousands of valuable hours, automating tasks done by data scientists to make them vastly more efficient.


AI Can Detect Signs Of Alzheimer's Years Before Symptoms Develop

#artificialintelligence

Now, researchers are using AI scans to detect Alzheimer's almost a decade earlier than doctors making a diagnosis based on symptoms alone. In a study, published earlier this month, researchers developed a machine-learning algorithm to detect Alzheimer's in brain scans 86 percent of the time. Nicola Amoroso, Marianna La Rocco, and colleagues from the University of Bari, Italy, taught AI software to tell the difference between healthy and unhealthy brains using MRI scans from the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative. The researchers discovered that the algorithm was most effective at analyzing brain regions of 2,250 to 3,200 cubic millimeters – which just so happens to be the same size as anatomical structures associated with the disease (e.g.


Can artificial intelligence and IoT feed the planet's growing population?

#artificialintelligence

The innovation behind these transformations is machine learning, a kind of algorithm that ingests and analyzes tons of data to find common patterns, and turn those patterns into predictions and actions. The practice, known as "precision farming," uses real-time and historical data along with machine learning algorithms to take specific actions for smaller areas and time increments instead of performing the same thing for a very large area in a routine-based manner. Deep learning and computer vision algorithms analyze the collected data to learn and report when something important is happening. These tasks can be as easy as controlling irrigation on different parts of the field based on humidity data obtained from sensors, or notifying distribution partners based on the amount and time of yield expected.


The next big act out of Abbey Road could be an AI startup

#artificialintelligence

Between 1962 and 1970, the Beatles recorded nearly all their singles and albums at London's Abbey Road Studios using one of EMI's innovative REDD mixing consoles. "We are aware of the studio's heritage of continually tracking technology as it changed over the years," says Jon Eades, innovation manager at Abbey Road Red, the studio's technology incubator, which launched in 2015. Uberchord, an AI-powered guitar-learning app, now has licensing deals with Sony and Universal, including a collection of Beatles songs; another graduate, Tokyo-based QRATES, is the first online crowdfunding platform for artists and labels to collect pre-orders from fans to fund vinyl pressing. Abbey Road Red's latest intake includes AI Music, which has created an app called Ripple that personalises tracks for each listener.


Lyft offers 400 scholarships for online self-driving car course

Even better, Udacity has partnered with Lyft (which has self-driving plans of its own) to provide scholarships to the intro course in order to increase diversity to the program. In addition, Lyft will provide mentorship opportunities through its lyf, which is where the company houses its self-driving division. The nanodegree itself will cover topics like "machine learning, object-oriented programming and probabilistic robotics." Of course, if self-driving cars aren't your thing, you can always enroll in Udacity's new Flying Car nanodegree (which really focuses more on drones than actual airborne autos).


How Artificial Intelligence Will Speed up Recruitment Processes 7wData

@machinelearnbot

Artificial intelligence aims to revolutionize the hiring process by integrating technology with recruitment. Recruitment -- as a process -- is data driven, and by using this data in an effective way, Human Resources (HR) is able to gauge how successful an employee will be in an organisation. Artificial intelligence also incorporates employee experiences at previous companies as well as extra-curricular skills and other qualities. Since a large number of resumes are received by Human Resources (HR), there is a huge build-up of valuable data, which can be tabulated and analysed accurately, with the support of technology.


Deep Learning: CNNs for Visual Recognition - Udemy

@machinelearnbot

Welcome to this course: Deep Learning - Learn Convolutional Neural Networks. Convolutional neural networks have gained a special status over the last few years as an especially promising form of deep learning. Rooted in image processing, convolutional layers have found their way into virtually all subfields of deep learning, and are very successful for the most part. Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) enable very powerful deep learning based techniques for processing, generating, and sensemaking of visual information.


Lifeboats in Norfolk trialling DRONES in search and rescue

This gives the lifeboat crew a better view of the water, and helps them find a person more quickly - potentially the difference between life and death. The drones use Direct Line's Fleetlights prototype technology, developed in 2016 in a bid to solve a lack of street lighting. The drones use Direct Line's Fleetlights prototype technology, developed in 2016 in a bid to solve a lack of street lighting. CAA regulations cap the maximum legal range of a drone at 500m, but drone expert, Peter King, said he hoped to put forward a'safety case' for permission for the lifeboat drones to go further'Perhaps if we had been equipped with the drone technology, these searches would have had a positive outcome.
