Machine-Learning Software Engineer / Architect for a Recommender-System Spin-Out Company

#artificialintelligence

The ADAPT Centre at Trinity College Dublin has received funding to hire a start-up founder to spin-out the business start-up Darwin & Goliath http://darwingoliath.com in the field of recommendations-as-a-service. The position is to be filled with a product manager, machine-learning engineer, software engineer, or software architect. The person is expected to work together very closely with the project lead and Business Administrator. Both will be responsible for developing a recommender-system as-a-service that uses unique machine-learning technology, which is based on the research of Professor Joeran Beel who is the project lead. This position is flexible in the responsibilities and open to focus more on either software engineering / machine-learning or on the architectural and product management part.


CMU becomes go-to place for machine learning in catalysis research

#artificialintelligence

Many a middle school science teacher has dripped a few drops of potassium iodide into hydrogen peroxide and watched the delight of their students as a volcano of foam erupted from the container. This experiment is often the way young people first learn about catalysts as something that that can induce a chemical reaction. But catalysts can make more than foam. As those young people grow into young scientists, they learn that catalysis--the acceleration of a chemical reaction by a catalyst--is a key process in the creation of just about everything. From the plastics that make up our medical equipment, to the gasoline in our cars, to the paint that colors our homes--none of these could exist without catalysts.


Avigilon: Appearance Alerts to Commercial VMS

#artificialintelligence

Avigilon Corporation, a Motorola Solutions company, presents the newest version of its video management software, Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 7.4, which incorporates artificial intelligence-powered facial recognition technology. FEATURES OF AVIGILON CONTROL CENTER (ACC) 7.4 The new "appearance alerts" capability will help commercial organizations, such as educational institutions and hospitals, accelerate response times by identifying people of interest in enterprise settings. For example, the technology can alert the security team at a local high school when a banned or flagged individual has entered the campus. People of interest are identified based on a secure, controlled watch list created and maintained by authorized users at the commercial organization. For organizations that use the new ACC software and license their Avigilon cameras for facial recognition, cameras will seek to identify potential matches based on the watch list.

Top 10 Machine Learning Announcements From AWS re:Invent

#artificialintelligence

The AWS re:Invent conference announced numerous tools and services for developers in 2019. This year, the developers at AWS paid special attention to machine learning development. In this article, we list down the top announcements on machine learning services at AWS re:Invent 2019. Amazon Augmented AI or A2I provides built-in human review workflows for common machine learning use cases, such as content moderation and text extraction from documents, which allows predictions from Amazon Rekognition and Amazon Textract to be reviewed easily. This feature makes it easy for building and managing human reviews for machine learning applications.
