Introduction to Machine Learning Algorithms

#artificialintelligence

Continuing off a basic introduction to AI & Machine Learning, we will explore common algorithms of Machine Learning such as linear regression or classification and defining how they work and when to use them. Afterwards, we will go through an example on using Watson Studio and AutoAI, which automates the workload of data scientists, to best choose the correct machine learning algorithm for your problem.


How U.S. Bank Is Using Machine Learning To Stop Account Opening Fraud

#artificialintelligence

Banks lost about $4 billion to account takeover (ATO) fraud attempts last year and the losses are set to further increase as this year progresses. ATO and other fraud methods that rely on using stolen credit card numbers or other personal information are becoming decidedly popular with bad actors, who are employing increasingly sophisticated technologies to execute their scams. The majority of ATO attacks are automated, meaning that fraudsters are becoming more comfortable utilizing advanced learning tools such as deep learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to target financial institutions (FIs) and their customers. About 40 percent of all ATO attacks now count as high-risk, meaning banks of all shapes and sizes must reexamine how they think about data protection, security and the tools they use to guard against emerging threats. In the latest Digital Banking Tracker, PYMNTS analyzes the ways in which FIs are working to keep fraudsters from accessing customer information and funds on their mobile and digital channels.


Keras Tutorial : Transfer Learning using pre-trained models

#artificialintelligence

In our previous tutorial, we learned how to use models which were trained for Image Classification on the ILSVRC data. In this tutorial, we will discuss how to use those models as a Feature Extractor and train a new model for a different classification task. Suppose you want to make a household robot which can cook food. The first step would be to identify different vegetables. We will try to build a model which identifies Tomato, Watermelon, and Pumpkin for this tutorial.

One is aimed at improving the efficiency and noise cancelation of our ultra-thin fans, the other is focused on developing a product quality management system." Virtusa Corporation (NasdaqGS:VRTU) has joined the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (SAIL) as an Affiliate Member.


Canadian, Quebec governments pledge $15 million to create AI centre in Montréal BetaKit

#artificialintelligence

The federal and Quebec governments have announced the creation of a Montréal-based international centre of expertise for the advancement of artificial intelligence as part of the Global Partnership on AI (GPAI), which was recently discussed at the G7 Leaders' Summit. "Montréal was ideally suited to host this centre of expertise." The federal government will invest up to $10 million over five years to support the activities of the centre once it commences operations. This commitment is in addition to a $5 million grant previously committed by Quebec, and awarded to Montréal International, to create or attract an international AI organization, bringing total government investment to $15 million over five years. "The Montréal ecosystem is recognized as a leader in AI," said Navdeep Bains, minister of innovation, science, and economic development.

Tableau brings AI capabilities to its Analytics Platform

#artificialintelligence

Tableau announced the general availability of Explain data that brings a new set of AI capabilities to its analytics platform. Founded in 2003, Seattle-based, Tableau is the leading provider of the analytics platform. The company was successfully IPO(ed) in 2013 and later acquired by Salesforce in an all-stock deal amounting to $15.7 billion in transaction. It analyzes available data and explains relevant factors for the given data point. Earlier, to derive the cause of data point, manual validation of explanations is required.


There's Nothing Fake About Artificial Intelligence - Harvey Mackay Academy

#artificialintelligence

It seems like artificial intelligence is taking over the world, leaving many of us non-techies feeling terrified. Yet when you stop to think about it, we all use artificial intelligence (AI) every day. When we Google something, use Siri on our smart phones or ask Alexa a question, we are using AI. Wikipedia states artificial intelligence, sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans. Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is often used to describe machines (or computers) that mimic "cognitive" functions that humans associate with the human mind, such as "learning" and "problem solving."


AI Isn't Smarter Than You Are... Yet

#artificialintelligence

This robot, Pepper, welcomes people to the store. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) applications are growing and expanding into all industries and functions. From ranking sales leads (Einstein) to chatting with customers (Bold 360) artificial intelligence seems to be popping up everywhere. However, many of the of the boldest claims for artificial intelligence have not yet come to fruition. AI is not yet curing cancer and Amazon's recruiting tool acted with just as much bias as a normal human recruiter.
