The modern actuarial office: Why AI and speed will generate sales in the future

#artificialintelligence

Some say that the insurance industry is a long, quiet river on which stately steamships cruise. Others say it is a shark tank where only the strongest survive. The insurance market is clearly mature, with a limited scope of action for individual players. There is, however, no question that merciless predatory competition is taking place, probably precisely because of this saturation. It is the perfect recipe for a ruinous price war, even though this is something that insurers really cannot afford in the long term.


H2O.ai and Snowflake Integration Accelerates Enterprise AI Adoption

#artificialintelligence

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 4, 2020 – H2O.ai announced the availability of H2O Driverless AI integration, a leading automatic machine learning (AutoML) platform, with Snowflake, the Cloud Data Platform. This new integration enables Snowflake users to easily build and deploy ML models. Driverless AI automates the time consuming and demanding data science and machine learning workflows such as feature engineering, model tuning and model selection to achieve the highest predictive accuracy within the shortest time. The seamless integration of H2O Driverless AI with the Snowflake Cloud Data Platform is another step towards democratizing AI for all and empowering every company to be an AI company. "H2O.ai and Snowflake are in a unique position to help our customers adapt in the rapidly emergent business landscape and win with artificial intelligence on the cloud," said Sri Ambati, CEO and Founder of H2O.ai.

Interim director takes over Joint Artificial Intelligence Center

#artificialintelligence

As he departs, the Defense Department's top artificial intelligence official says the foundation is set for the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center -- but now it must deliver. "The foundational elements are now in place. What we have to do in the course of the next one to two years is deliver. This is about delivery first and foremost," Lt. Gen. Jack Shanahan said during a virtual Mitchell Institute event June 4. "What we have to do is show that we're making a difference."


Facebook's 3D Photos feature now simulates depth for any image

#artificialintelligence

In late 2018, Facebook launched 3D Photos, a feature that leverages depth data to create images that look flat but that can be examined from different angles using virtual reality (VR) headsets, through Facebook on the web or Facebook's mobile apps. It initially required a depth map file on desktop or dual-camera phones like the Galaxy Note10 or iPhone 11, but starting today, 3D Photos is compatible with any modern handset with a single camera -- specifically an iPhone 7 or higher or a midrange or better Android device. Facebook says that "state-of-the-art" machine learning techniques made the expanded phone support possible. Newly deployed AI models can infer the 3D structure of images without depth data, regardless of the images' ages or origins. It even works with selfies, paintings, and complex scenes.

Machine Learning Experiment Tracking - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

At first glance, building and deploying machine learning models looks a lot like writing code. Tracking experiments in an organized way helps with all of these core issues. Weights and Biases (wandb) is a simple tool that helps individuals to track their experiments -- I talked to several machine learning leaders of different size teams about how they use wandb to track their experiments. The essential unit of progress in an ML project is an experiment, so most people track what they're doing somehow -- generally I see practitioners start with a spreadsheet or a text file to keep track of what they're doing. Spreadsheets and docs are incredibly flexible -- what's wrong with this approach?

Machine learning (ML) is study of computer algorithms that can build different analytical model from data. Machine learning is subset of artificial intelligence that builds mathematical analytic model based on data feed to learning model. Machine learning has a hunger for lots of data and build mathematical relationship between data. Before going deep into ML we should discuss conventional/classical programming approach. In classical programming we would have lots of data and we know how system should work so programmer hard code rules to act on data that produce desired output/answer.


Safely Re-Open Using AI to Enhance Contact Tracing & Social Distancing Integration Partners Lexington, MA

#artificialintelligence

Companies across a wide range of industries and markets are assessing their ability to re-open safely in the coronavirus era. New rules and regulations, and new realities, apply. We have to think about how post-COVID will be different. Those on the vanguard of IT implementations are recognizing that artificial intelligence has vast potential. Using the right AI can empower companies to be smarter about physical distancing, the preventative measure for COVID.


Pandemic is showing us we need safe and ethical AI more than ever

#artificialintelligence

Machine-learning models are trained on human behavior and excel at highlighting predictable or "normal" behaviors and patterns. However, the sudden onset of a global pandemic caused a massive change in human behavior that by some accounts has caused automation to go into a "tailspin," exposing fragilities in integrated systems we have come to rely upon. The realization of the scale and scope of these vulnerabilities -- which affect operations ranging from inventory management to global supply chain logistics -- comes at a time when we need artificial intelligence (AI) more than ever. For example, AI technologies are enabling contact tracing applications that may help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. And amidst widespread testing shortages, hospitals have started to use AI technologies to help diagnose COVID-19 patients.
