How to Build Machine Learning Model using SQL

#artificialintelligence

A label is a variable to be predicted. In this example, I will predict whether the website visitor will make any transactions and I gave this label the name "purchase". This can be derived from the existing variable "totals.transactions". For simplicity, let's make this prediction a black or white situation, either "purchase" or "no purchase". Since the model training cannot handle string value as the output result, therefore it is necessary to code them into numbers.


Decision Intelligence: Expanding the Horizon of Business Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

The volume of data businesses produce today carries much significance in terms of overall growth. Foresighted companies know that if they want to vie in a highly-competitive market, they must deploy advanced analytics to ever-growing data sets. Using business intelligence allows them to look into their historical and current data sets, and it provides them predictive views of their business operations. Augmented by artificial intelligence and machine learning, business intelligence provides enterprises with decision-making context and recommendations. This significantly drives a move towards decision intelligence, the creative blend of technology into enterprise decision-making strategies and workflows.


AI can help Google and Amazon detect unconscious bias

#artificialintelligence

The reason for focusing on this area of bias is regarded as important by some enterprises. This is because unconscious bias is often easy to miss. Moreover, unconscious bias is often seen to be far more pervasive in the workplace than blatant discrimination. According to some researchers, unconscious bias can be blamed for lower wages, less opportunities for advancement and high turnover. Unconscious biases are types of social stereotypes held by members of one group about other groups of people.


An AI Was Taught to Play the World's Hardest Video Game and Still Couldn't Set a New Record

#artificialintelligence

What's the hardest video game you've ever played? If it wasn't QWOP then let me tell you right know that you don't know how truly difficult a game can be. The deceptively simple running game is so challenging to master that even an AI trained using machine learning still only mustered a top 10 score instead of shattering the record. If you've never played QWOP before, you owe it to yourself to give it a try and see if you can even get your sprinter off the starting line. Developed by Bennett Foddy back in 2008, QWOP was inspired by an '80s arcade game called Track & Field that requires players to mindlessly mashing buttons to win a race.


New Machine Learning Theory Raises Questions About the Very Nature of Science

#artificialintelligence

A novel computer algorithm, or set of rules, that accurately predicts the orbits of planets in the solar system could be adapted to better predict and control the behavior of the plasma that fuels fusion facilities designed to harvest on Earth the fusion energy that powers the sun and stars. The algorithm, devised by a scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), applies machine learning, the form of artificial intelligence (AI) that learns from experience, to develop the predictions. "Usually in physics, you make observations, create a theory based on those observations, and then use that theory to predict new observations," said PPPL physicist Hong Qin, author of a paper detailing the concept in Scientific Reports. "What I'm doing is replacing this process with a type of black box that can produce accurate predictions without using a traditional theory or law." Qin (pronounced Chin) created a computer program into which he fed data from past observations of the orbits of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and the dwarf planet Ceres.


B-52s again fly over Mideast in US military warning to Iran

Boston Herald

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- A pair of B-52 bombers flew over the Mideast on Sunday, the latest such mission in the region aimed at warning Iran amid tensions between Washington and Tehran. The flight by the two heavy bombers came as a pro-Iran satellite channel based in Beirut broadcast Iranian military drone footage of an Israeli ship hit by a mysterious explosion only days earlier in the Mideast. While the channel sought to say Iran wasn't involved, Israel has blamed Tehran for what it described as an attack on the vessel. The U.S. military's Central Command said the two B-52s flew over the region accompanied by military aircraft from nations including Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. It marked the fourth-such bomber deployment into the Mideast this year and the second under President Joe Biden.


Teaching Home Robots

#artificialintelligence

At TRI, our goal is to make breakthrough capabilities in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Despite recent advancements in AI, the large amount of data collection needed to deploy systems in unstructured environments continues to be a burden. Data collection in computer vision can be both quite costly and time-consuming, largely due to the process of annotating. Annotating data is typically done by a team of labelers, who are provided a long list of rules for how to handle different scenarios and what data to collect. For complex systems like a home robot or a self-driving car, these rules must be constantly refined, which creates an expensive feedback loop.


Top 10 predictions of how AI is going to improve cybersecurity In 2021

#artificialintelligence

There is no denying that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the future of cybersecurity. In other words, the future of cybersecurity lies in the hands of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Companies or medium-sized corporations can counter various cyber threats using the advanced concepts of AI. If you want to know about different AI predictions that will positively influence cybersecurity in 2021 and in the future, read this post in detail. According to a recent research conducted by Trend Micro, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will replace the need for human beings by the end of 2030.


Rep's bill would allow STEM ed to branch out

Boston Herald

Sometimes, vocations and avocations need a champion, and students in Massachusetts looking to further their knowledge of science, technology and robotics have one in state Rep. Danillo Sena. A House member representing the 37th Middlesex District, Sena filed a bill on Feb. 4 titled "An Act establishing an elementary and secondary school robotics grant program," meant to create a grant program that provides public and charter schools the necessary funding to increase robotics and STEM participation during and after school. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, a branch of education designed to help students to become better problem-solvers. "Money should not be a barrier between students and access to fun and engaging STEM education programs that foster creativity and have lasting positive effects on student achievement like these robotics teams," the Acton Democrat stated in a release. The bill was created in collaboration with Olivia Oestreicher, a member of Team 4905 Andromeda One Robotics at Ayer Shirley Regional High School and a Rep. Sena intern.


SARDO Is a Smartphone-Sniffing Search and Rescue Drone

#artificialintelligence

For anyone who has ever misplaced their iPhone, Apple's "Find My" app is a game-changer that borders on pure magic. Sign into the app, tap a button to sound an alarm on your MIA device, and, within seconds, it'll emit a loud noise -- even if your phone is set on silent mode -- that allows you to go find the missing handset. Yeah, it's usually stuck behind your sofa cushions or left facedown on a shelf somewhere. You can think of SArdo, a new drone project created by researchers at Germany's NEC Laboratories Europe GmbH, as Apple's "Find My" app on steroids. The difference is that, while finding your iPhone is usually just a matter of convenience, the technology developed by NEC investigators could be a literal lifesaver.
