#artificialintelligence

You might not have heard of Hanson Robotics, but if you're reading this, you've probably seen their work. They were the company behind Sophia, the lifelike humanoid avatar that's made dozens of high-profile media appearances. Before that, they were the company behind that strange-looking robot that ...



If machine learning isn't saving you money, you're doing it wrong

Machine learning is the new hotness, we all agree. Probably every story you've read with a click-baity title like "7 Technology Trends That Will Dominate 2018" will mention machine learning or AI in one way or another. The truth is, machine learning is great, but its really easy to quickly become disenfranchised by it if you're not going about it the right way. I know this from personal experience. First, and perhaps foremost, machine learning is still just scratching the surface of what is possible. What can be frustrating is that you definitely will never hear that from someone trying to sell you machine learning capabilities or services. Even the hot shot data scientists and ML engineers you hire (understandably) may not immediately parrot the limitations of the current state-of-the-art. I can't tell you how many use cases and requests I've heard from business large and small for things that just simply aren't possible. I've probably heard an equal amount of requests for things ...
