Are you a Tinder or a Bumble type of person? The clichés of 'big dating'

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

From the way we count our steps to the measures we take to get noticed online, Silicon Valley has transformed the everyday life of the average American. How and what platform we choose to date hasn't escaped this reality. Users of online dating apps, stemming from websites that became less socially acceptable among younger generations, are at the mercy of "swipes" to find love, a casual encounter or simply to boost their egos. But which app daters use may lead to unintentional assumptions – clichés, even – about why they chose a particular matchmaking platform, ranging from how they present themselves on their profiles to what kind of connection they are seeking. Almost half of U.S. online users have met or know someone who has met a romantic partner on a dating website or app.






Linear Regression Vs Logistic Regression

#artificialintelligence

Logistic regression is a part of the supervised learning category; it measures the relationship between the categorical dependent variable and one or more independent variables by estimating probabilities using a logistic/sigmoid function. In spite of the name'logistic regression,' this is not used for regression problem where the task is to predict the real-valued output. It is a classification problem which is used to predict a binary outcome (1/0, -1/1, True/False) given a set of independent variables. In linear regression, you predict a real-valued output y based on a weighted sum of input variables as shown below. The aim of linear regression is to estimate values for the model coefficients c, w1, w2, w3 ….wn and fit the training data with minimum error to predict the output y.

Analyze the montainous risks with AI

#artificialintelligence

This post will present a R&D project, done in collaboration with Géolithe, applied to risk assessment in montainous environment. One year ago, Oslandia started to work on a R&D challenge that was organized by Imaginove, a french innovation center (now known as Minalogic). This challenge dealed with country planning in montainous environment, and was part of a bigger project called Univers. The Univers project was set up in order to encourage collaborations between Rhône-Alpes actors involved in digital technologies and geospatial data exploitation. The challenge use case was provided by Géolithe, a french engineering company that focuses on geology, geophysics, geotechnics and civil engineering.


Asia Times Rapid spread of AI surveillance cause for concern Opinion

#artificialintelligence

Would you act differently if you knew that somebody constantly watches you to analyze your behavior and emotions? People will have to answer this question soon. While facial recognition and other biometric technologies are becoming more prominent in a range of services including password authentication and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the pervasiveness of such technologies in our daily lives is becoming disturbing. And this says nothing about how fast they are spreading. Surveillance in retail stores that analyzes the behavior of shoppers, facial-recognition technology to expedite checking in to flights and hotels, targeted-marketing algorithms that deliver personalized ads by scanning the customer's face – these are a few examples, the tip of the iceberg, of how industries are using artificial-intelligence (AI) tech.
