If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
In this new post, we will learn step by step how to create an Azure Notebook Project for our Experiment #102 and implement a text summary service by writing some scripts in Python and running them with Jupyter. First, we can access this Azure Notebooks Service by visiting https://notebooks.azure.com/ Before creating our own functions, we must load a bundle of Python libraries that includes Azure Machine Learning SDK (azureml-sdk), ONNX Runtime (onnxruntime) and the Natural Language Toolkit (nltk). The "init" file or Python script looks like that: After that, we need to upload the file to our Azure Notebook project. Then, we can go inside, see the code and run it from Jupyter to load all the libraries.
Most accountants probably don't dream of becoming artificial intelligence experts. But the truth is that every accountant can now benefit from AI in their practice -- even those who don't know the first thing about software engineering, data science or Python code. With today's off-the-shelf AI solutions, accountants can work smarter and deliver better service to their clients. Traditionally, implementing AI has required a level of knowledge and resources that are beyond the reach of most accounting firms. Whether it's selecting an AI platform, creating algorithms or training the AI, getting up and running with AI has always demanded a high level of technical acumen.
My recommendation is to get video examples from throughout the week, with different lighting, different'scenarios' on the street such as cars, bins, animals, ghosts, whatever else is common. In my case, I need video with and without those bins. Now comes the fun part. Go ahead and download this nifty tool from Machine Box called Objectbox. Follow the instructions to get yourself setup with the annotation tool in Objectbox, and place your videos into the boxdata/files directory.
According to a new market report published by Credence Research Inc., "Global Voice Recognition Market (By Components (Hardware and Software), By Application (Artificial Intelligence and Non-Artificial Intelligence), By End-Use Vertical (Automobile, BFSI, Consumer, Government, Healthcare, Home, Security & Automation, and Others))- Growth, Share, Opportunities, Competitive Analysis, and Forecast 2018 – 2026", the worldwide market for voice recognition is anticipated to grow by 14.5 per cent CAGR during the 2018-2026 forecast period. Voice recognition schemes are safety solutions used to either grant or deny access to people by recognizing and matching their voice patterns. More and more biometric safety solutions have been deployed in the banking and finance sectors to improve safety and customer experience. Government agencies and businesses across the globe, on the other side, are adopting biometric techniques to thwart safety threats. Increased incidences of fraud in multiple industries and enhanced adoption of mobile banking, particularly among e-commerce distributors, are anticipated to drive the global voice recognition market.
Verizon is working with Mcity at the University of Michigan to advance transportation safety and shape the future of autonomous vehicles and smart cities using 5G. The Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network is now live at the Mcity Test Facility where we are testing various 5G solutions designed to boost pedestrian safety and avoid car accidents. This includes installing 5G-connected cameras at every intersection inside the Mcity test track to help identify traffic and pedestrian patterns to prevent collisions. While connected cars have sensors that can "talk" to each other to help avoid accidents, cameras connecting to traffic light signals can help protect people walking or biking. "We've installed signal controllers at the intersections within Mcity that provide signal phase and timing data to the 5G network," said Eric Raamot, chief technology officer at Econolite.
Given the popularity of our Sector Maps, today we are introducing our Active Investors Map, which shows the most active investors in an emerging technology sector and a sampling of companies that they have invested in. Below you can see our Active Investors Map for the Artificial Intelligence sector. As the above graphic indicates, Y Combinator is the most active investor in the AI sector with 91 investments, followed by Accel with 81 investments and New Enterprise Associates with 73 investments. Rounding out the list is Intel Capital, the most active of corporate investors in the AI sector.

Very often in the context of AI, it is mentioned that enormous amounts of data are required in order to work with it in the first place. Very complex models have to be programmed and the success of a project is often associated with many unpredictabilities and risks. However, as a general rule, this is completely wrong. This article is all about giving you a perspective on how to handle situations of data scarcity and the possibilities to consider in this context. Of course, there are complex projects that place extreme demands on the amount of data in order to achieve effective results, but usually this has to do with poor planning or a deliberately high willingness to experiment.
