Luminar's CFO Aims to Conserve Cash as Company Begins Commercial Production WSJD - Technology

The transaction provided Luminar with the infusion of capital it needed to begin producing lidar sensors that use lasers to measure distances and classify objects for self-driving vehicles at a commercial scale, according to Chief Financial Officer Tom Fennimore. As a public company, however, Luminar must be mindful of how it spends the cash, he added. Luminar has positioned itself in recent years to benefit from the expected rise of autonomous vehicles. It has announced partnerships with car makers including Volvo Cars, which is owned by China's Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, Daimler AG's trucks business and SAIC Motor Corp. Ltd. to incorporate its sensor technology into self-driving vehicle designs. The Morning Ledger provides daily news and insights on corporate finance from the CFO Journal team.

How You Can Get Started With Machine Learning In Marketing


While some companies are now becoming extremely sophisticated in handling such big data and combining it to better segment and market users, a lot are still catching up. Every now and then we all hear how Machine Learning is going to take over our mundane jobs and how AI is the future. But frankly today Machine Learning and Algorithms are not a story of the future, these are everywhere, from your google searches, to your Netflix suggestions. While on the onset you might never be able to recognize this hidden intelligence in the systems around you, but these systems are designed to give you such a seamless experience that it feels almost like "Magic". Machine learning is a subset of Artificial Intelligence, and we are only going to talk about only Machine Learning for now.

Why and Where AI Should Be a Part of Your Digital Experience Strategy


AI, machine learning, and natural language processing are beginning to play a much larger role in enterprise businesses, whether it is in customer service, customer relationship management, or even learning initiatives. In what ways is AI being incorporated into your DX strategy? Companies are investing in AI-based platforms in increasing numbers each year, and as a result, the AI worldwide software market revenue is expected to top $247 billion dollars, and the global AI market revenue is expected to be $327 billion this year, according to a report by Statista. This article will look at the ways AI is being used by enterprise businesses. One of the most obvious ways that AI is being used by brands is for "live" customer service interactions.

How AI Can Improve Pricing and Discount Management?


Brands can't keep up with the fast-changing trends and conduct surveys to look for opportunities. Providing regular rotation of discounts to customers is more challenging than it sounds. It is because of this reason that retailers are utilizing the power of AI and machine learning to roll out promotions and discounts. AI is highly efficient when it comes to setting optimal prices. It analyzes both competitive and historical data, customer behaviour, and seasonal trends to come up with the right pricing.

AI For Advertising: Pattern89


We all know that there are troves of data that exist online about us and our browsing, clicking, and spending habits. However, given all that information and the people that spend their lives on the internet, how do those who tailor the ads we see parse that information? As with many things these days, it's useful to have machines to help. RJ Talyor is the CEO and founder of Pattern89, an Indianapolis-based marketing firm using the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to help advertisers figure out what works and what doesn't when it comes to the ads we see everyday. I spoke with him about how AI is helping marketers figure out not only who to target, but what elements to include in those ads.

Remote, hybrid or office-based? Employers are making big decisions about the future of work. This is what it might look like


For many business leaders, the sudden transition to remote working that was forced upon companies last year as the COVID-19 pandemic shut down office spaces still brings back memories of long hours of work and a few logistical ordeals – but according to some experts from analyst Gartner, the real challenge is yet to come. As restrictions slowly lift and employers start thinking of bringing their staff back into the workplace, some forward-thinking planning will be required to ensure a smooth transition from working fully remotely in the context of a global health crisis, to a hybrid mode of work of which the details are yet to be defined. Which video conferencing platform is right for your business? We've gathered details about 10 leading services. This is because, for a significant proportion of employees, a return to the office for five days a week is unlikely to be an appealing option.

Soffos – AI-powered conversational corporate L&D platform


The intricate detail is extremely complex and a patentable secret, but it's all about the use of algorithms that combine computational linguistics, contextual memory, deep learning. The AI parses words as input from voice or text from resources, so that it'understands' the relationship between words (as concepts or things) not just by simple keyword association (e.g. car transport) but by well-defined meta-labels, which refer to relationships between language, concepts, objects and questions from an infinite number of possible (and impossible) relationships. A limited set of relation types are used, using global identifiers with unambiguous denotations. This is combined with semantic'Extraction Transformation and Load' (ETL) processes from structured databases, forming strong associations and disassociations during the AI's training. An example of a Knowledge Graph (KG) to draw upon vast amounts of varied information might be a recommendation system for TV shows, movies, songs and albums from an online entertainment provider, to help find relationships between actors, artistes, titles and series.



Today, artificial intelligence is used for a wide range of activities in different fields and industries. From education, healthcare, and entertainment to finance, electronic trading platforms, e-commerce platforms, transportation, and more, you'll find how artificial intelligence finds many applications in our lives today. No wonder why many aspiring job seekers want to learn artificial intelligence to enter a promising field that's changing almost every aspect of our lives significantly and is predicted to continue doing so in the future, albeit in a much more extensive way. If you're planning to get AI training and wondering what you can do with artificial intelligence, here are the top three domains that you may target (though the list isn't exclusive as you can have a lot more choices, as mentioned earlier): Artificial Intelligence is changing e-learning drastically. You can use AI to personalize learning for every individual student.
