spaCy Version 3.0 Released: All Features & Specifications

#artificialintelligence

The 3.0 version has state of the art transformer-based pipelines and pre-trained models in seventeen languages. The first version of spaCy was a preliminary version with little support for deep-learning workflows. The second version, however, introduced convoluted neural network models in seven different languages. The third version is a massive improvement over both of these versions. The 3.0 version has completed dropped support for Python 2 and only works on Python 3.6.


Artificial Intelligence's Differences Vs. The Human Brain

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence and its not-so-positive reputation have always stemmed from one thing: its apparent superiority over human intelligence. Compared to a very smart person, a computer is simply faster in a lot of aspects. What would take human years to process will only take minutes for AI, and that's a fact. As such, comparing the two types of intelligence yields proof that they are, indeed, quite different from each other. When you talk about a machine's learning capabilities, artificial intelligence can only learn one way: if it is fed a certain amount of data.


Three Popular Machine Learning Methods

#artificialintelligence

Let's move onto the different types of machine learning. The first type of machine learning we will talk about is supervised learning. In this method, you take a sample from the larger data set. This sample is used to represent the correlation and relationships that can be inferred from the data. Basically, it will try to summarize different cases in order to learn what predictions can be made or how to classify data.


How low-code development could boost AI adoption

#artificialintelligence

Every company may want to put artificial intelligence to work, but most companies aren't blessed with the ability to hire battalions of data scientists–nor is that necessarily the right approach. As Gartner analyst Svetlana Sicular once argued, often the best possible data scientist is the person you already employ who knows your data and simply needs help figuring out how to unlock it. For many business line owners, it's this kind of approach that may make the most sense, as they seek to be smarter with the data they already have. One company working to enable this vision is Cambridge, Massachusetts-based machine learning startup Akkio, which pairs AI with low code in an attempt to democratize AI. I caught up with company co-founder and COO Jon Reilly to learn more.


Straight from the Horse's Mouth

#artificialintelligence

As many of you will know, artificial intelligence is a passion of mine. I believe in its potential to boost productivity, solve problems, and make the world a better place. For me, it's more than just talk; I am building an entire business around AI and I stand with the users and creators of AI who see its potential and the exciting places it can take us. But not everyone is like us. Despite growing body evidence to the contrary, many people still see AI as a dark force; a development to be feared instead of celebrated.


Why AI Is Pushing Marketing Professionals To Reinvent Themselves

#artificialintelligence

Today's marketers are challenged to adapt to new technologies, consumer habits and practices, channels, and methods of engagement arguably faster than any other generation. One of the hottest areas of interest is artificial intelligence. How can AI be leveraged to understand, interact with, and generate loyalty with consumers? Raj Venkatesan (Darden Business School), co-author of "The AI Marketing Canvas: A Five-Stage Road Map to Implementing Artificial Intelligence in Marketing" with Jim Lecinski (Kellogg Business School), shares insight on how marketers must upskill to address the changing marketing landscape. Kimberly Whitler: How has marketing evolved?


How AI gave New Life to Global Sports

#artificialintelligence

India lost two early wickets in the first session of the initial innings of the ICC Test Championship Final. There is already much history about him and England. This History was enough to create the hype around him. On the first note, the ground was the same where India loses their debut world cup winning chance in the captaincy of Kohli. Southampton has seen India losing enough times.


GPU Training on Apple M1

#artificialintelligence

Since it's release in November 2020, the first Macs with an Arm-based M1 chip, have been a topic of discussion in the developer community. The new M1 chip on the MacBook Pro consists of 8 core CPU, 8 core GPU, and 16 core neural engine, in addition to other things. Both the processor and the GPU are far superior to the previous-generation Intel configurations. So far, it has proven itself to be superior to anything Intel has offered. However, the Deep Learning gang was struggling with native arm support, especially since most libraries/frameworks support cuda and x86 architecture.


With post-pandemic AI, we've now stepped into the Age of Acceleration

#artificialintelligence

All the sessions from Transform 2021 are available on-demand now. As the IBM Watson experience shows, the path to AI success is fraught with challenges. Yet overall, it has been a very good year for AI and the companies developing it. So much so that Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai, in a recent podcast recorded by BBC, says: "I view [AI] as a very profound enabling technology. If you think about fire or electricity or the internet, it is like that, but I think even more profound."


Real-World Blind Face Restoration with Generative Facial Prior

#artificialintelligence

Technology and Technological developments in this decade have led to some of the most awe-inspiring discoveries. With rapidly changing technology and systems to support them and provide back-end processing power, the world seems to be becoming a better place to live day by day. Technology has reached such new heights that nothing our ingenious mind today thinks about looks impossible to accomplish. The driving factor of such advancements in this new era of technological and computational superiority seems to be wrapped around two of the most highly debated domains and topics, namely Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence. The canvas and ideal space that these two domains provide are unfathomable.
