Now is the Optimal Time to Reboot Work with Robotics Process Automation (RPA)

#artificialintelligence

As a point of reference into how quickly things have evolved in the RPA space, UiPath was a fledgling software start-up as recently as 2005. It wasn't until seven years later when they first built a web browser plug-in aimed at consumers that they quickly realized that their underlying computer-vision document scanning technology could act as a robotic helper for many repetitive tasks. When UiPath launched their desktop automation product in 2013, and their enterprise platform in 2015, (along with their new name) the "hockey-stick" trajectory truly began. As of today, UiPath is the fastest-growing enterprise software company in history and the RPA industry as a whole, is expected to be a $16.2 billion market by 2023. As recent as 5 months ago, UiPath's valuation stood at $7 Billion As a basis of further validation for the industry itself, Gartner recently reported that RPA software revenue grew 63.1% in 2018 to $846 million, making it the fastest-growing segment of the global enterprise software market.


Machine Learning – Introduction to Unsupervised Learning Vinod Sharma's Blog

#artificialintelligence

Unsupervised learning helps to find a hidden jewel in data by grouping similar things together. Data have no target attribute. The algorithm takes training examples as the set of attributes/features alone. In this post, I have summarised my whole upcoming book "Unsupervised Learning – The Unlabelled Data Treasure" on one page. This one-page guide is to know everything about unsupervised learning on a high level.


r/MachineLearning - [D] Efficient Partial Dependence Plots with decision trees

#artificialintelligence

Partial Dependence Plots (PDPs) are a standard model inspection technique. It turns out that for decision trees, they can be computed very efficiently. This post explains how PDPs are computed in general, and goes into the details of the optimized version for tree models.

Worldpay, in partnership with IntelliQA, has been awarded as a winner in the category of Most Innovative Project by The European Software Testing Awards. Sharad Jain and his team were on hand to collect the award and celebrate: "We looked to robotics to speed up our testing process," says Sharad, "we set up a test lab with four robots doing end to end testing for us and our output increased dramatically...I am delighted to be part of wonderful team Worldpay to see my contribution scaling heights and recognized as the best in Europe. Innovation can't get any sweeter."


Opportunities for Artificial Intelligence in Advancing Precision Medicine

#artificialintelligence

In the past decade, advances in genetic disease and precision oncology have resulted in an increased demand for predictive assays that enable the selection and stratification of patients for treatment [1]. The enormous divergence of signaling and transcriptional networks mediating the cross talk between healthy, diseased, stromal, and immune cells complicates the development of functionally relevant biomarkers based on a single gene or protein. Unexpectedly, the conclusion of the human genome did not translate into a burst of new drugs. The pharmaceutical industry rather announced a declining output in terms of the number of new drugs approved despite increasing commercial efforts of drug research and development [2, 3]. In contrast, machine learning (ML) as well as network and systems biology are innovating with impactful discoveries and are now starting to be seamlessly integrated into the biomedical discovery pipeline [4].


Call for Abstracts 2020 Rice Oil & Gas HPC Conference

#artificialintelligence

You are invited to prepare an extended abstract to be considered for presentation at the 2020 Oil & Gas HPC Conference hosted by the Ken Kennedy Institute at Rice University. The conference is the premier meeting place for HPC users and participants to engage in conversations about challenges and opportunities in high performance computing, computational science and engineering, and data science across the energy industry. Attended by more than 500 leaders and experts from the energy industry, academia, national labs, and IT industry, this is a unique annual opportunity for key stakeholders to engage and network to help advance HPC in the industry. Computation, data, and information technology continue to stand out across the energy industry as critical business enablers. Recent advances in machine learning, deep learning, robotics and AI are emerging, and there is convergence between these emerging areas and HPC. With the end of Moore's law, challenges are mounting around a rapidly changing technology landscape. However, the end of one era is also an opportunity for advancements and the beginning of a new era – a renaissance for system architectures highlights the need for investments in people (workforce), algorithms, software innovations, and hardware platforms to support system scalability and demands for increasing digitization across the oil and gas sector.


Popular Deep Learning Courses of 2019 - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Deep Learning is gaining more momentum and notoriety among the data science generation of this decade. A few years ago, it was not as mainstream as Machine Learning techniques, such as Logistic Regression and Random Forest for example. Nowadays, it is all about Neural Networks, Activation Functions, Multiple Layers, Drop-out, etc. There is good reason for this one, which is simply, Deep Learning has shown to perform better than Machine Learning algorithms at times. The following courses are famous among peers for knowledge on the new wave of Deep Learning and AI.


Blog The Future of Real Estate - Real Estate Embraces For The AI Onslaught

#artificialintelligence

Over the next 20 years, there will be few industries and professions that will have not been significantly impacted by the presence and power of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The next AI frontier is real estate which, if one follows the money, makes perfect sense: In 2017, real estate accounted for a whopping 13.4 percent of the GDP. The challenge for AI, however, is whether it can competently assume the roles of humans in a profession that is heavily dependent on providing the personal touch to the buyer and seller in every transaction. Tell that to Skyline AI, which offers an AI platform with a diverse range of real estate-centric applications that are supposed to make the professional more efficient and the clients more satisfied. Skyline's AI platform professes to be able to: While these tasks may replace human function, they are still far short of the relationship building that has thus far been the exclusive domain of humans.
