How to create a machine learning dataset from scratch?

#artificialintelligence

My grandmother was an outstanding cook. So when I recently came across her old cook book I tried to read through some of the recipes, hoping I could recreate some of the dishes I enjoyed as a kid. However this turned out harder than expected since the book was printed around 1911 in a typeface called fraktur. For example the letter "A" looks like a "U" in fraktur and every time I see a "Z" in fraktur I read a "3" (see Figure 2). So the idea emerged to develop a pipeline that will create a live translation of the fraktur letters into a modern typeface.

Dealing With Bias in Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Timnit Gebru is a research scientist at Google on the ethical A.I. team and a co-founder of Black in AI, which promotes people of color in the field. Dr. Gebru has been instrumental in moving a major international A.I. conference, the International Conference on Learning Representations, to Ethiopia next year after more than half of the Black in AI speakers could not get visas to Canada for a conference in 2018. She talked about the foundational origins of bias and the larger challenge of changing the scientific culture. Their comments have been edited and condensed. You could mean bias in the sense of racial bias, gender bias.



This "robot lawyer" can take the mystery out of license agreements

#artificialintelligence

DoNotPay, the "robot lawyer" service that helps you contest parking tickets and even sue people, is launching a new tool to help customers understand license agreements. Called "Do Not Sign," the service is included with DoNotPay's monthly $3 subscription fee, and it lets users upload, scan, or copy and paste the URLs of any license agreements they'd like to check. The service uses machine learning to highlight clauses it thinks users need to know about, including options to opt out from data collection. Agreeing to lengthy license agreements is an almost weekly occurrence for many people, with modern smart devices forcing you to hit "agree" on every new contract. Do Not Sign isn't a replacement for a real lawyer, but it's better than accepting a license agreement sight unseen so you can start using a shiny new gadget, service, or app without delay.


3 Steps to Implement Artificial Intelligence.

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) could increase global GDP by 14 percent, or an astounding $15.7 trillion by 2030. This is due, in large part, to productivity gains from AI automation and workforce augmentation. AI will change the world, but it takes time to implement and train it. It's important for your business to understand how, when, and where to implement Artificial Intelligence, and it's often best to start small. The world at large is still learning how best AI can be used to benefit society.


Are You Ready For The Robots?

#artificialintelligence

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is one of the hottest pillars of digital transformation in the enterprise. RPA promises to unleash the productivity of humans, reduce labor costs, reduce human error, and improve cycle times. Who doesn't want these benefits? The current entry cost (tech & talent) to pilot an RPA solution starts at $100,000 and can hit millions of dollars at scale. By 2021, some of the capabilities offered by RPA platforms may well be commoditized, driving the technology costs to the floor.


Big data is serving top tennis players a match-winning advantage ZDNet

#artificialintelligence

Big data is changing how tennis stars train and play; but the key to success is taking all that information and turning it into something players can use to win. Craig O'Shannessy, official strategy analyst for both the ATP Tour and all-time great Novak Djokovic, says that the smart use of data when preparing can have a significant impact on a match. O'Shannessy explains to ZDNet at the ATP Tour Finals in London how he uses a range of tools to give Djokovic that data-led advantage. These tools include the Infosys Tennis Platform, which is being used for the first time in 2019 across the ATP Tour, which is the worldwide top-tier tennis tour for men organised by the Association of Tennis Professionals. The platform includes a portal that gives players and coaches access to advanced analytics and match video.

Artificial Intelligence Future – How's AI changing the world Rapidly

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence, also known as AI, is one of the most rapidly growing technologies today and "it is going to change the world more than anything in the history of mankind" – AI oracle and venture capitalist Dr. Kai-Fu Lee, 2018. If we talk about present time, there is no industry and no human being whose life has not been impacted by AI in some or the other way. Artificial intelligence can be considered as the major driving force of the latest and emerging technologies like big data, robotics and IoT, and in the future also, we are sure that it will continue to be an important contributor and technological innovator for the predictable future. "Everything we love about civilization is a product of intelligence, so amplifying our human intelligence with artificial intelligence has the potential of helping civilization flourish like never before – as long as we manage to keep the technology beneficial." Talking about Artificial intelligence future, we are pretty much sure that AI is emerging as another consistently growing technology in our lives, just like the internet, electricity, and combustion use to be a few decades back.
