Work Minus Repetitive Tasks with Spiros Margaris - Role of human in fintech

#artificialintelligence

Many might think that repetitive tasks are a thing of yesterday. We are moving into a new world with AI and machine learning where tasks all around us will quickly be given to machines who will do it better than us. Humans have been both good and bad at knowing how to handle mundane and repetitive tasks. Sometimes it takes the life out of us, and sometimes it's just what we needed. Many of our most brilliant moments come in the middle of otherwise boring work.

Could you imagine a future where computers made economic decisions rather than governments and central bankers? With all of the economic mishaps we've been seeing over the past decade, one could say it isn't a particularly bad idea! Natural language processing could allow us to make more sense of the economy than we do currently. As it stands, investors and policymakers use index benchmarks and quantitative measures such as GDP growth to gauge economic health. That said, one potential application of NLP is to analyse text data (such as through major economic policy documents), and then "learn" from such texts in order to generate appropriate economic policies independently of human intervention.


Top Machine Learning Applications in Everyday Life Scenario

#artificialintelligence

We cannot deny that this technology has made its place in many people's heart. But still, we will tell you a brief introduction to machine learning. Machine learning or ML usually defines as an application of Artificial Intelligence. It has the ability to make computers predict something automatically. There are two major types of machine learning algorithms.


Debunking the Top Myths Surrounding AI -- Quickpath

#artificialintelligence

Today, consumers encounter artificial intelligence continuously through smartphones, customer service centers, websites, and appliances. Surveys show that nearly nine in 10 Americans use some form of artificial intelligence device, and 79% of people report AI having a perceived positive impact on their lives. Despite the overwhelmingly positive uptake of the technology, films, art, and literature have long warned about the potential dangers of AI in science fiction storytelling. So, how much of this is based on reality? In order to answer these questions, it's important to look at the facts, where AI really stands and why many of these AI projects are untrue (at least in our lifetime).


Why buying and selling a house could soon be as simple as trading stocks

#artificialintelligence

On a recent weeknight, Dahlia and Adam Brown came home to their spacious Colonial on a quiet cul-de-sac in Marietta, Ga. The Browns both work demanding jobs and have two young sons. They bought the house in June using Knock, a company that's trying to revolutionize the real-estate industry with a "home trade-in platform" making it easier to buy and sell at once. That solution was ideal for the Browns, who are just as busy as most couples but more introverted, making the idea of prospective buyers tramping through their private space seem excruciating. Across town, Martha Seay was overseeing movers in a rambling brown ranch-style house nestled among tall hickory trees.

Deep Nexus Inc. (Deep Nexus) today announces the launch of its AI-powered predictive analytics for financial markets. "Our core approach is to find repeating patterns and anomalies in data and to use these for intra-day trading," said Chief Executive Officer Kevin M. Riley. "Our technology stack is complete; from collecting incoming data, to generating analytics, through trade execution. It is the emerging hardware and software technologies, especially deep learning, that have made our platform possible." Riley began experimenting with quantitative trading strategies and neural networks more than 20 years ago.


Coding Canadian values into the future of artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Trust is a delicate thing. It can take a lifetime to build and can disappear in an instant. We know the relationship Canadians have with their financial institutions is rooted in trust. Canadians look to their bank to be there for them, to safeguard their families' financial future, and offer them the right advice and guidance that can help them be more financially confident. As we continue to innovate and create new experiences for our customers, preserving that trust is paramount.


Leverage new tech opportunities for SDGs achievement in Africa UNDP in Africa

#artificialintelligence

The Assistant Secretary General and Director of the Regional Bureau for Africa of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Ms. Ahunna Eziakonwa, called on African countries to take advantage of the opportunities offered by digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchains and machine learning, and deploy these in various sectors for the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). She made the call during a panel session at a side event at the 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) in Yokohama, Japan. The event, titled "From Idea to Action: Harnessing the Potential of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) in Africa's Development", was organized by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the World Bank. Ms. Eziakonwa noted that, Africa needs to harness the potential of STI for development by prioritizing policies and making investments to increase access to state-of-the-art technologies such as e-governance, finance and digital literacy and skills – at secondary and TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) level. She called for the adoption of innovative financing schemes that combine both public and private sector resources and technical expertise for the achievement of the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environment.


Investment Management with Python and Machine Learning Coursera

#artificialintelligence

The practice of investment management has been transformed in recent years by computational methods. This course provides an introduction to the underlying science, with the aim of giving you a thorough understanding of that scientific basis. However, instead of merely explaining the science, we help you build on that foundation in a practical manner, with an emphasis on the hands-on implementation of those ideas in the Python programming language. This course is the first in a four course specialization in Data Science and Machine Learning in Asset Management but can be taken independently. In this course, we cover the basics of Investment Science, and we'll build practical implementations of each of the concepts along the way.


AI Chatbots for ITSM

#artificialintelligence

And, better the health of a Service Desk, better is the maintenance of the infrastructure that supports an enterprise. However, owing to varied market dynamics Service Desks are further pressured to deliver 24/7 consistent services aimed towards infrastructure stability, network stability, asset management and more. Such targets create operational bottlenecks, reduces speed of support and increases costs. Know more about the other more important benefits of AI Chatbots designed for ITSM from our webinar and understand how they can take the complexity out of ITSM operations in less than 4 weeks*. His expertise stems from extensive work on messaging platforms, Enterprise systems and RPA.
