Most Latin companies using AI have profited from the technology


Most companies using artificial intelligence systems in Latin America have profited from the use of the technology, according to research from consulting firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and MIT Sloan Management Review (SMR). According to the Cultural Benefits of Artificial Intelligence in the Enterprise study, more than half (51%) of companies using AI in the region managed to generate profit from the use of technology, with financial return considered high by 7% of the companies polled. However, the numbers in Latin America are below the global average: 55% of the AI enterprise users polled worldwide registered profit through the use of the technology, with 11% generating a high profit. Artificial intelligence in the real world: What can it actually do? What are the limits of AI?

Fine-Tuning Language Models the Easy Way with blather


If you want to skip ahead and just see how to fine-tune your own dataset you can skip the rest of the article and just check out the colab notebook! Presenting guest lectures is one of my favorite things; all the joy of teaching without any of the responsibility. My goal in a lecture is to get the students excited about machine learning, get them playing around with practical examples, and then get the heck out of the way. This week I had the opportunity to talk with some students from the University of Arizona's Cyber program about machine learning. In a pre-lecture survey on questions one of the major concerns the students in the class identified was the developing threat of high-fidelity bots capable of influencing conversations on social media.

House Hearing On Artificial Intelligence And Race - AI Summary


A House Financial Services Committee task force met virtually to discuss whether artificial intelligence could address systemic racism in housing and financial services. Several members spoke to the innovation of AI technology but warned about the bias and discriminatory practices in the housing, education, and financial sectors. Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) spoke out on how some AI lending companies have participated in what she called "educational redlining" and unfairly charged students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) higher interest rates for loans.

Exploring ROS2 with a wheeled robot – #4 – Obstacle avoidance


In this post you'll learn how to program a robot to avoid obstacles using ROS2 and C . Before anything else, make sure you have the rosject from the previous post, you can copy it from here. Launch the simulation in one webshell and in a different tab, checkout the topics we have available. The obstacle avoidance intelligence goes inside the method calculateVelMsg. This is where decisions are made based on the laser readings.

Churn Modelling


Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) are multi-layer fully connected neural nets that resemble the diagram below. An input layer, numerous hidden layers, and an output layer make up these layers. Each node in one layer is connected to the nodes in the next layer. By increasing the number of hidden layers, we can make the network deeper. We have a dataset with a total of 14 dimensions and 100000 records in it.

Does AI Have A Positioning Problem?


AI was first coined by American computer scientist Prof. John McCarthy in 1955. He said, 'Our ultimate objective is to make programs that learn from their experience as effectively as humans do.' 66 years since, AI has only come into its own in the past decade as technology has caught up with the theory. In 2016, Amazon, Apple, DeepMind, Google, IBM and Microsoft formed the'Partnership of AI' to set societal and ethical best practice for artificial intelligence research. So, where is AI today? IBM's definition of AI is: 'Artificial intelligence leverages computers and machines to mimic the problem-solving and decision-making capabilities of the human mind.'

Nicolas Babin disruptive week about Artificial Intelligence - December 6th 2021 - Babin Business Consulting


I am regularly asked to summarize my many posts. I thought it would be a good idea to publish on this blog, every Monday, some of the most relevant articles that I have already shared with you on my social networks. Today I will share some of the most relevant articles about Artificial Intelligence and in what form you can find it in today's life. I will also comment on the articles. Artificial Intelligence Is All the Rage.

Progressing the Ai-enabled digital twin: empowering ports


A digital twin is a digital representation, or'twin', of a physical object with the real world behaviour achieved using Ai based true cognitive or system can take whole components of a physical entity – such as a port complex or terminal – and virtually map that body into a 3D interface or provide organised datasets for the user. Aidrivers combines that visualised technology with any operative object in a terminal yard to provide huge benefits to the end user.

Reinforcement Learning for Everybody


As with many other machine learning, or more generally, AI problems, RL can also be intimidating if one starts directly from the full problem and the formal mathematical definitions, so let us start by loosely defining RL as a collection of both problems and representations, meaning that, we have both RL problems and RL methods to solve that class of problems. More formally, when we are working on a reinforcement learning problem, we are trying to map specific situations to an action or a set of actions, and each of those actions will have a consequence or a "reward" which can be either positive, neutral, or negative, in fact, this can simply be a real number. For example, let's say that we have a pet monkey called Marcel and that he has a set of toys that he loves to play with, and let's say that we want to teach Marcel to pee in the toilet as opposed to on the floor, so to incentivize Marcel too choose the right action, we'll give him a new toy every time he pees in the toilet ( 1 toy) and we'll remove a toy from his collection (-1 toy) every time he pees on the floor. In this case, hopefully, Marcel (we can call him the "agent"), will learn to select an "action" (pee on the floor vs pee in the toilet) whenever he finds himself in a given situation or "state" -- when he feels the need to pee -- in a way to maximize the number of toys, namely the rewards, by choosing the right actions at that state. Now, I want to emphasize that while this example does a decent job describing the general idea of a reinforcement learning problem, there are many elements missing to fully describe the RL problem.
