How is Machine Learning Beneficial in Affiliate Marketing?

#artificialintelligence

In earlier days, word-of-mouth was a powerful thing that was used for promotional purposes to get the revenue going. As time passed, affiliate marketing became an important component for revenue generation. Today, machine learning is being used effectively for various marketing strategies. Most of us use mobile devices to surf the internet for shopping or many other things. Here AI comes into picture, which is used to gather a variety of information around customers.


Deep learning enables real-time imaging around corners: Detailed, fast imaging of hidden objects could help self-driving cars detect hazards

#artificialintelligence

"Compared to other approaches, our non-line-of-sight imaging system provides uniquely high resolutions and imaging speeds," said research team leader Christopher A. Metzler from Stanford University and Rice University. "These attributes enable applications that wouldn't otherwise be possible, such as reading the license plate of a hidden car as it is driving or reading a badge worn by someone walking on the other side of a corner." In Optica, The Optical Society's journal for high-impact research, Metzler and colleagues from Princeton University, Southern Methodist University, and Rice University report that the new system can distinguish submillimeter details of a hidden object from 1 meter away. The system is designed to image small objects at very high resolutions but can be combined with other imaging systems that produce low-resolution room-sized reconstructions. "Non-line-of-sight imaging has important applications in medical imaging, navigation, robotics and defense," said co-author Felix Heide from Princeton University.


Deep learning vs. machine learning: Understand the differences

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning and deep learning are both forms of artificial intelligence. You can also say, correctly, that deep learning is a specific kind of machine learning. Both machine learning and deep learning start with training and test data and a model and go through an optimization process to find the weights that make the model best fit the data. Both can handle numeric (regression) and non-numeric (classification) problems, although there are several application areas, such as object recognition and language translation, where deep learning models tend to produce better fits than machine learning models. Machine learning algorithms are often divided into supervised (the training data are tagged with the answers) and unsupervised (any labels that may exist are not shown to the training algorithm).

How do We Quantify the Quality of Our Predictions? Part I

#artificialintelligence

We have all worked on different kinds of Machine learning models, and each model needs to be evaluated in different ways. From the initial data that is provided to the outcome and the way, we as the users want to use it. A classification model would require a different metric for model evaluation as compared to a regression model or a Neural Net, and it's important to know and understand which metric to use and when. Here in this series, we go through some of these metrics, starting from the basic and the most commonly used ones to the application-specific and complex metrics that we can use. We will be starting with the basic metrics from sklearn and progress towards the more complicated metrics after that.


Taking on Modern Day Gremlins With Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Online glitches are basically modern day gremlins--and they can cost companies millions of dollars. With so much data to check and double-check, maybe artificial intelligence (AI) can help stop these "gremlins" from wreaking havoc online. Perhaps the most iconic World War II cartoon is the Warner Bros. episode "Falling Hare." Bugs Bunny pooh-poohs the notion of gremlins committing sabotage on the Allied war effort, until those little creatures cause malfunctions in everything from bombs to planes, with devastating results in the Merrie Melodies classic. SEE ALSO: The'Quantum Computing' Decade Is Coming--Why You Should Care According to Robert O. Harder, in a piece published by MHQ--The Quarterly Journal of Military History, "gremlins" were tall tales told by pilots of mischief makers that would infect aircraft, causing all kinds of maladies.


The 'Illinois Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act' is a real law. Here's why it may be coming to a job application near year.

#artificialintelligence

Under the new law, companies must explain how the technology works and how the tools evaluate a candidate. Employers must obtain consent from applicants before using A.I. to assess their videos. The legislation also prohibits businesses from sharing submitted videos except with "persons whose expertise or technology" are required to screen applicants. Job applicants can ask to have submitted videos destroyed, and companies, including any individual with copies, must comply within 30 days.


European Union likely to ban Facial Recognition for 5 years

#artificialintelligence

The EU (Europian Union) is considering restricting the use of facial recognition technology for a possible duration of 5 years, in public area sectors. The reason being is the regulators need some time to consider the protection of unethical exploitation of the technique. The facial recognition is a technique that lets to identify faces that are captured on camera footage to be crosschecked against real-time watchlists, mostly collected by the police. However, the restrictions for the use are not absolute as the technique can still be used for research and development, and safety purposes. The committee formulating the restriction drafted an 18-page document, which implicates the protection of privacy and security of an individual from the abuse of the facial recognition technique.


Neural Architecture and AutoML Technology Analytics Insight

#artificialintelligence

Deep learning offers the promise of bypassing the procedure of manual feature engineering by learning representations in conjunction with statistical models in an end-to-end fashion. In any case, neural network architectures themselves are ordinarily designed by specialists in a painstaking, ad hoc fashion. Neural architecture search (NAS) has been touted as the way ahead for lightening this agony via automatically identifying architectures that are better than hand-planned ones. Machine learning has given some huge achievements in diverse fields as of late. Areas like financial services, healthcare, retail, transportation, and more have been utilizing machine learning frameworks somehow, and the outcomes have been promising.


Google CEO eyes major opportunity in healthcare, says will protect privacy - Reuters

#artificialintelligence

DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) - Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Alphabet Inc and its Google subsidiary, said on Wednesday that healthcare offers the biggest potential over the next five to 10 years for using artificial intelligence to improve outcomes, and vowed that the technology giant will heed privacy concerns. U.S. lawmakers have raised questions about Google's access to the health records of tens of millions of Americans. Ascension, which operates 150 hospitals and more than 50 senior living facilities across the United States, is one of Google's biggest cloud computing customers in healthcare. "When we work with hospitals, the data belongs to the hospitals," Pichai told a conference panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. "But look at the potential here. Cancer if often missed and the difference in outcome is profound. In lung cancer, for example, five experts agree this way and five agree the other way. We know we can use artificial intelligence to make it better," Pichai added.
