Is a Machine Learning Certificate Right for You?

#artificialintelligence

Recent years have seen the increasing popularity of certificates as a means for data scientists to build new skills. Companies, such as Google, have even begun offering their own, with promising results. This popularity may be a result of the fact that a machine learning certificate can offer similar amounts of knowledge for less time and costs. There are numerous other benefits as well. There is a lot that can be learned on the job.


Machine Learning Basics Everyone Should Know - InformationWeek

#artificialintelligence

AI is seeping into just about everything, from consumer products to industrial equipment. As enterprises utilize AI to become more competitive, more of them are taking advantage of machine learning to accomplish more in less time, reduce costs and discover something whether a drug or a latent market desire. While there's no need for non-data scientists to understand how machine learning (ML) works, they should understand enough to use basic terminology correctly. Although the scope of ML extends considerably past what's possible to cover in this short article, following are some of the fundamentals. Before one can grasp machine learning concepts, they need to understand what machine learning terms mean.


AI augments capacity planning with machine learning smarts

#artificialintelligence

Any sufficiently advanced technology might be indistinguishable from magic. And the history of IT demonstrates that such technologies invariably exceed human capacity to control them without automation. VM sprawl was the first sign of this impending chaos that engulfed virtual infrastructure. Now, that predicament is superseded by broader waste issues as cloud services continue to displace conventional enterprise infrastructure. IT management has evolved from simple UI portals, which connected multiple systems and exposed various IT admin functions in a central location, to sophisticated statistical and machine learning algorithms. These algorithms harness the massive amounts of telemetry data modern physical IT infrastructure and cloud services generate to filter, correlate, summarize, analyze and, ultimately, predict the behavior of an entire cloud environment.

Are you a fan of "indicator variables", otherwise known as "binary flags"? Binary flags are two-state variables that can take on the value of 0 or 1. They work well for classifications that are binary. In #epidemiology, "alive" or "dead" is a good binary classification, as an example. There usually is an in-hospital mortality flag in hospital datasets I've gotten, and it's 0 if you left the hospital alive, and 1 if you were not so lucky.


Understand Weight of Evidence and Information Value! - Analytics Vidhya

#artificialintelligence

We have all built a logistic regression at some point in our lives. Even if we have never built a model, we have definitely learned this predictive model technique theoretically. Two simple, undervalued concepts used in the preprocessing step to build a logistic regression model are the weight of evidence and information value. I would like to bring them back to the limelight through this article. First thing first, we all know logistic regression is a classification problem.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) In The Classroom

#artificialintelligence

AI is finally here and most of us are already actively using it in our day-to-day life. To prepare our future generation to harness these technologies, educators need to understand how they can use AI, use it to facilitate learning and solve real-world problems. The course is aimed at all educators who would like to use AI, irrespective of the topic which they teach. The course assumes no prior knowledge of AI and will start by introducing the basic concepts. It will then illustrate a number of fun exercises which can be used with the students, to help them understand these concepts.

20 Necessary Requirements of a Perfect Laptop for Data Science and Machine Learning Tasks

#artificialintelligence

If you're learning Data Science and Machine Learning, you definitely need a laptop. This is because you need to write and run your own code to get hands-on experience. When you also consider portability, the laptop is the best option instead of a desktop. A traditional laptop may not be perfect for your data science and machine learning tasks. You need to consider laptop specifications carefully to choose the right laptop.


How stakeholder capitalism and AI ethics go hand in hand

#artificialintelligence

At a 2020 meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Salesforce founder Marc Benioff declared that "capitalism as we have known it is dead." In its place now is stakeholder capitalism, a form of capitalism that has been spearheaded by Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum, over the past 50 years. As Benioff put it, stakeholder capitalism is "a more fair, a more just, a more equitable, a more sustainable way of doing business that values all stakeholders, as well as all shareholders." Unlike shareholder capitalism, which is measured primarily by the monetary profit generated for a business' shareholders alone, stakeholder capitalism requires that business activity should benefit all stakeholders associated with the business. These stakeholders can include the shareholders, the employees, the customers, the local community, the environment, etc.


CTAB-GAN: Effective Table Data Synthesizing

#artificialintelligence

We devise a novel conditional tabular data synthesizer, CTAB-GAN, that addresses the limitations of the prior state-of-the-art: (i) encoding mixed data type of continuous and categorical variables, (ii) efficient modeling of long tail continuous variables and (iii) increased robustness to imbalanced categorical variables along with skewed continuous variables. Furthermore, two key features of CTAB-GAN are the introduction of classification loss in conditional GAN, and novel encoding for the conditional vector that efficiently encodes mixed variables and helps to deal with highly skewed distributions for continuous variables.
