Optimising processes with artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

MECOMS is an IT solution provider specialised in the utility sector and focused on Microsoft and Azure technologies. We're investigating how artificial intelligence can help the different players in the utility market run their business processes in a more efficient way, using different techniques like machine learning and advanced chatbots. For distribution grid operators, we see interesting opportunities in the area of machine learning. We came up with the idea of using machine learning to help run the process of validation of meter readings that arrive as raw data at the IT system. Machine learning could be used to observe whether there is a consistent pattern in the reasons why meter readings run into validation errors.



Experts: AI Needs Ethics – Hypergrid Business

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is increasingly becoming a part of our daily lives, both in the workplace and at home. Some AI experts are stressing the need to focus on making AI ethical and keeping it human friendly. Bias in programming, security concerns, and a lack of public knowledge about how AI works are all issues that need to be addressed to develop and maintain a healthy relationship between humans and the technology we use. "This is the year AI ethics become absolutely mandatory functions in most businesses, not just talk," Alex Spinelli, chief technology officer at LivePerson and former global head of Alexa OS for Amazon, told Hypergrid Business. Companies are just starting to consider responsible use of AI as a part of their business model.


An expert explains: 3 ways AI can help in the global battle against cancer

#artificialintelligence

This rings an alarm bell as our health systems are overburdened and fragile. The pandemic has further exposed how the response of health systems to the chronic diseases can take the back seat with the onset of new and emerging infections. A report by the Indian Institute of Health Management and Research reveals that India has only over 1,250 oncologists currently, against the estimated need for 5,000. The lack of trained manpower for mass screening programs and required infrastructure portrays further apathy. India has about 27 dedicated cancer hospitals and an additional 300 general or multi-specialty ones providing care to cancer patients.


7 Emerging Technologies in SEO and Their Applications

Here's an example of some listicles I created for the topic "quality blog content" using this tool: As you can see, if I wanted to write an article on this topic, I can use some of these suggestions as an outline for my post. With these, I can focus instead on researching the individual sub-topics. Here's another example of some website taglines that I created for Moz by entering the brand name and a brief description of "The Ultimate SEO tool you can trust" into the tool: If you were starting a new brand as an SEO, you can use NLG tools such as this, to discover awesome taglines to use for your brand. TF*IDF stands for "Term Frequency times Inverse Document Frequency". This measures how you use a term on a particular page and how it compares to a collection of pages for that specific keyword.


Is China Winning the Race for AI?

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence has long been predicted to turbo-charge the digital transformation of our lives, yet again. But it's also a technology that raises many questions and brings up fears – about job security, privacy, and social justice, among others. This is particularly true in Europe, which may explain why the continent is widely seen as lagging behind in embracing the new technology. "The United States and China are ahead in the AI competition", the authors of a Carnegie Endowment report conclude. "Europe as a whole is punching far below its weight."


How Machine Learning Discretely Assists Data Scientists

#artificialintelligence

In incredibly basic words each time we pick our telephones to get look for information from any website or a search engine like google or any web-based media stage like Facebook or Instagram, you see some recommendations since Machine Learning is assuming its part every second. It is the job of Machine Learning to give the most important info or proposals to the searcher. Many times we don't even realize the difference between where we started our search and what exactly we end it. It may be anything like, from looking for great eatery jumping choices to tips for skincare system, we are contributing AI through our pursuits on the web, without acknowledging it. This is possible by using different algorithms like KNN algorithms to predict matching & bundled products. And notify customers with dedicated notifications.


How to get AI to sound less drunk: the GPT-3 case study

#artificialintelligence

GPT-3 has created a lot of buzz since its release a few months ago. The system can generate (almost) plausible conversations with the likes of Nietzsche, write op eds for The Guardian and was even used successfully to post undercover comments on Reddit for a week. But even with GPT-3, AI is still stuck in Uncanny Valley. GPT-3 output feels like it was written by a human at first glance, but it isn't quite. On closer inspection, it lacks substance and coherence.


Artificial Intelligence Can Help States Manage the Unemployment Crisis

#artificialintelligence

From March 1 to April 4, 2020, the Illinois Department of Employment Security received 513,173 unemployment claims -- more than the entire number of claims filed in 2019. It was impossible for IDES employees to handle this volume, resulting in many disconnected phone calls and unanswered online queries. Gov. J.B. Pritzker called for increased call center capacity, in large part through the implementation of new technologies to help employees handle the volume of queries. Gov. Pritzker wanted to minimize dropped calls and deliver a response to all online queries so citizens could receive the benefits they needed. This new technology, virtual intelligent agents, alleviated overburdened human agents from having to respond to every inquiry that came in.
