US firefighters turn to AI to battle the blazes

#artificialintelligence

Last summer, as Will Harling captained a fire engine trying to control a wildfire that had burst out of northern California's Klamath National Forest, overrun a firebreak, and raced towards his hometown, he got a frustrating email. It was a statistical analysis from Oregon State University forestry researcher Chris Dunn, predicting that the spot where firefighters had built the firebreak, on top of a ridge a few miles out of town, had only a 10% chance of stopping the blaze. "They had spent so many resources building that useless break," said Mr. Harling, who directs the Mid Klamath Watershed Council, and works as a wildland firefighter for the local Karuk Tribe. "The index showed it had no chance," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in a phone interview. The Suppression Difficulty Index (SDI) is one of a number of analytical tools Mr. Dunn and other firefighting technology experts are building to bring the latest in machine learning, big data, and forecasting to the world of firefighting.

Top 7 Big Data Trends to Dominate 2021

#artificialintelligence

Capturing big data is easy. What's difficult is to corral, tag, govern, and utilize it. NetApp, a hybrid cloud provider, sees cloud automation as a practice that enables IT, developers, and teams to develop, modify, and disassemble resources automatically on the cloud. Cloud computing provides services whenever it is required. Yet, you need support to utilize these resources to further test, identify, and take them down when the requirement is no longer needed. Completing the process requires a lot of manual effort and is time-consuming. This is when cloud automation intervenes.

6 Key Components of a Successful Data Strategy

#artificialintelligence

I've already mentioned data catalogs as one strategic tool. By necessity, they're provisioned by IT and data management teams, who know how to work with the various features in data catalog software and how to set up and deploy them. We can make a useful distinction between tools provisioned in this way by IT and tools adopted by end users. Both have an important role to play in a data strategy, complementing rather than contradicting each other. Data management tools are almost always the domain of IT.

Trends and Challenges of Digital Transformation in manufacturing sector - Express Computer

#artificialintelligence

Good connectivity between different pieces of equipment on the shop floor is important for their communication with each other, which eventually enable smart decision-making. This is one of the aspects of the fourth Industrial revolution, which is all set to re-map manufacturing businesses to deliver higher operational efficiency, better business outcomes and customer satisfaction through digital transformation. The digital landscape is continuously evolving for the manufacturing industry as businesses are adapting to the change and even anticipating changes before they occur. Fast-changing customer expectations and technological improvements that have brought a paradigm shift in other industries has begun to show the similar results in the manufacturing sector as well. Smart manufacturing is giving rise to smart factories Smart manufacturing is more than just automation, as it enables learning and adapting to the ever changing market conditions, delivering higher efficiency in quality control, than that performed by Quality Inspectors.


Global Big Data Conference

These are some of the outcomes that AI developers fear will come from their work, according to a new report issued today by the Deloitte AI Institute and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Titled "Investing in trustworthy AI," the 82-page report from Deloitte and the Chamber Technology Engagement Center sought to identify the concerns that technology experts have when it comes to the adoption of AI, as well as highlight the impact that government investment in AI can have on the emerging technology. Algorithmic bias and a lack of humans in decision loops are concerns for about two-thirds of the 250 people who participated in the survey. Another 60% identified "rogue or unanticipated behavior" of autonomous agents as a threat, while 56% said the lack of explainability of algorithms was a concern. "Perceived, and actual, discrimination by AI systems undermines the confidence individuals have in whether they are being given a fair opportunity when AI is involved," the report stated.


The Difference Between Data Scientists and ML Engineers

#artificialintelligence

Although they certainly work together amicably and enjoy some overlap concerning expertise and experience, the two roles serve quite different purposes. Essentially, we are differentiating between Scientists who seek to understand the science behind their work, and Engineers who seek to build something that can be accessed by others. Both roles are extremely important, and at some companies, are interchangeable -- for example, Data Scientists at certain organizations may carry out the work of a Machine Learning engineer and vice versa. To make the distinction clear, I'll split the differences into 3 categories; 1) Responsibilities 2) Expertise 3) Salary Expectations. Data Scientists follow the Data Science Process, which may also be referred to as Blitzstein & Pfister workflow.
