Amazon SageMaker Named as the Outright Leader in Enterprise MLOps Platforms

#artificialintelligence

Over the last few years, Machine Learning (ML) has proven its worth in helping organizations increase efficiency and foster innovation. As ML matures, the focus naturally shifts from experimentation to production. ML processes need to be streamlined, standardized, and automated to build, train, deploy, and manage models in a consistent and reliable way. Perennial IT concerns such as security, high availability, scaling, monitoring, and automation also become critical. Great ML models are not going to do much good if they can't serve fast and accurate predictions to business applications, 24/7 and at any scale.

The Echo Show 5 and Ring Video Doorbell bundle is on sale for under £50

Mashable

SAVE 53%: The Echo Show 5 and Ring Video Doorbell (Wired) bundle is on sale for £49.99 this Prime Day, saving you over £50 on list price. We're into the second day of Prime Day, which is kind of an oxymoron. Listen, we all know that these major shopping events last for much longer than advertised. That's just the way it works nowadays. Black Friday goes on for about a month, so we think you should forgive Prime Day for stretching out for 48 hours.


The role of artificial intelligence in digital commerce

#artificialintelligence

Before we get into the role of artificial intelligence (AI) and where it is set to take digital commerce, I think we should begin by unpacking a definition of digital commerce – what does it mean? It can be defined as the process of selling and buying products and/or services using digital channels. It includes the people, processes and technologies necessary to execute the offering of product, promotions, pricing, analytics, customer acquisition plus retention, and customer experience at all touchpoints throughout the buying journey. This definition can be applied to all sectors of business irrelevant of area of operations, so it includes banking, retail, automotive, etc. Sector is irrelevant in a world of digital transformation at the speed of COVID – all businesses seek digital channels to market their goods. Today, digital channels have been expanded to relate to digital transformation that is inclusive of people, processes and technologies used throughout the customer buying excursion.
