What Is Artificial Intelligence Really and When Will It Matter for Events?


"Artificial intelligence" is a popular marketing buzzword that's made its way to the event industry as event tech providers add and promote more AI features. What is artificial intelligence, and when should you care? Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology have come a long way in recent years, and they have a wide range of applications. However, there are some common misconceptions about what AI actually is, having often become synonymous with automation or, more generally, thoughtful computer programming. In the event industry in particular, more and more event tech offerings now market AI features.

Building 10 Classifier Models in Machine Learning + Notebook


In the last tutorial, we completed the Data Pre-Processing step. We saw preprocessing techniques applied in transformation and variable selection, dimensionality reduction, and sampling for machine learning throughout this previous tutorial. Now we can move on to the next steps within the Data Science process, where we'll apply the rest of the model building process with various classification algorithms to understand what it is and how to use machine learning with python language. In the next moment, we will discuss the Regression algorithms. We will not go into detail about the algorithms. The purpose here will be to understand the detailed process of building the Machine Learning model, machine learning, model evaluation, and prediction scans. See The Jupyter Notebook for the concepts we'll cover on building machine learning models and my LinkedIn profile for other Data Science articles and tutorials. The metrics chosen to evaluate model performance will influence how performance is measured and compared to models created with other algorithms. We need to find a metric to measure performance between models solidly and coherently, a metric comparable to the models analyzed.

Pandemic Has Spurred CIOs to Crystallize the IT Strategy - AI Trends


CIOs have tested many emerging strategies during the pandemic, including the Internet of Things sensors, low-orbit satellites, and augmented reality. Now the challenge is to get the technologies to work together to reach for big business goals. This was the message from Adriana Karaboutis, group chief information and digital officer at National Grid, speaking at the 2021 MIT CIO Symposium in a session on Accelerated Digital Transformation, held virtually recently. The effects of the crisis made organizations "double down on that focus and crystallization for what we need to do," she stated in an account in CIO Dive To pursue IoT, standardization is a must, suggested Harmeen Mehta, chief digital and innovation officer at BT, the British multinational telecommunications firm. "If the world can consolidate a bit on standardization, it will help pick up speed," stated Mehta.

It's time to train professional AI risk managers


Last year I wrote about how AI regulations will lead to the emergence of professional AI risk managers. This has already happened in the financial sector where regulations patterned after Basel rules have created a financial risk management profession to assess financial risks. Last week, the EU published a 108-page proposal to regulate AI systems. This will lead to the emergence of professional AI risk managers. The proposal doesn't cover all AI systems, just those deemed high-risk, and the regulation would vary depending on how risky the specific AI systems are: Since systems with unacceptable risks would be banned outright, most of the regulation is about high-risk AI systems.

Journey to the Field of Data Science and Machine Learning


Wow-what a fascinating field it is!! I started having this feeling when I knew little about machine learning. It has brought a new perspective to the way we see every problem. I felt that every question can be answered by it and that is so exciting!! The only challenge I had that I did not know how I should enter in this field. How to make a career in data science? And I found tones of articles.

Tesla has unleashed Full Self-Driving mode on city streets way too soon


From the robots that fail miserably at their jobs to the robots dealing with our literal crap, Mashable's Crappy Robots dives into the complex world of automation -- for better or worse or much, much worse. A video of a Tesla in Full Self-Driving mode published online earlier this year is 13 minutes of terror. It's almost comically bad how terribly the robo-assisted car performs. Tesla's current advanced driver assistance system, Autopilot, has been a standard add-on feature in its electric cars since 2014. It's been filmed in countless home videos, with the computer appearing to perform flawlessly as it keeps the car centered in a lane, slows down, even changes lanes and exits the freeway.

'Animal Crossing' and 'StarCraft' join the Video Game Hall of Fame


And then there were four. After narrowing down a list of 12 finalists, The Strong National Museum of Play has inducted four new titles to its World Video Game Hall of Fame. In order of release, they are 1982's Microsoft Flight Simulator,1985's Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, 1998's StarCraft and 2001's Animal Crossing. They beat out the likes of the original Call of Duty, Portal, Guitar Hero and -- checks notes -- FarmVille to make it into this year's class. Incidentally, StarCraft is the second Blizzard game to join the hall after World of WarCraft was in the first selection of games inducted by the museum in 2015.

Industry should start working on AI, M2M, data science seriously for Aatmanirbhar Bharat: Dhotre


The minister of state for communications and education also said the COVID-19 pandemic has shown people the importance of digital infrastructure. Survival during this difficult phase was possible due to the connectivity made available to citizens under the Digital India program envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he added. "The modern technologies like AI, M2M (machine to machine) and data science are further going to change the world. The government is keen on utilising these technologies. Education is another priority area, specially for young citizens and women. "I call on the industry and all of you to work seriously on all these latest technologies for an Aatmanirbhar Bharat," Dhotre said at a virtual international conference organised by CMAI. Speaking at the conference, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) Chairman Anil Sahastrabudhe said a balance needs to be achieved between the virtual world and the physical mode of learning. "Teachers who have never used technology are now using technology more.

Exploring the Future of Human and AI Teams


Listen to Exploring the Future of Human and AI Teams | AI Right? from AI Right?. In episode one of MBN's new data science podcast, AI Right?, hosts Kris McFadyen, Megan Stamper and Andy McMahon look at the future of AI and human teams, discuss the limits and benefits of AI and look at how greater education on AI and machine learning can benefit the UK.

AI and machine learning's moment in health care


While healthcare has lagged behind other industries in the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) and many other advanced technologies, the COVID-19 pandemic is proving to be the mother of invention when it comes to technological innovation. Machine learning -- a key part of AI where computer algorithms automatically improve through experience -- has been called upon to leverage healthcare data to help deal with many of the challenges COVID-19 has presented. Public health systems have turned to machine learning to complement their contact tracing and other efforts to control the disease and track outbreaks. Private healthcare operators have embraced machine learning to remain competitive when faced with a drop in demand for elective surgery or, in many countries, a reluctance or inability to visit hospitals or clinics. The pace of AI and machine learning adoption is also accelerating in hospitals.
