If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
This course, Machine Learning for Accounting with Python, introduces machine learning algorithms (models) and their applications in accounting problems. It covers classification, regression, clustering, text analysis, time series analysis. This course provides an entry point for students to be able to apply proper machine learning models on business related datasets with Python to solve various problems. Accounting Data Analytics with Python is a prerequisite for this course. This course is running on the same platform (Jupyter Notebook) as that of the prerequisite course.
This course aims at providing an introductory and broad overview of the field of ML with the focus on applications on Finance. Supervised Machine Learning methods are used in the capstone project to predict bank closures. Simultaneously, while this course can be taken as a separate course, it serves as a preview of topics that are covered in more details in subsequent modules of the specialization Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning in Finance. The goal of Guided Tour of Machine Learning in Finance is to get a sense of what Machine Learning is, what it is for and in how many different financial problems it can be applied to. The course is designed for three categories of students: Practitioners working at financial institutions such as banks, asset management firms or hedge funds Individuals interested in applications of ML for personal day trading Current full-time students pursuing a degree in Finance, Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or other related disciplines who want to learn about practical applications of ML in Finance Experience with Python (including numpy, pandas, and IPython/Jupyter notebooks), linear algebra, basic probability theory and basic calculus is necessary to complete assignments in this course.

It looked like another battle was shaping up Sunday in Barcelona with Charles Leclerc on Pole and leading early with Max Verstappen P2 and chasing hard. Then on Lap 27 everything changed as Leclerc's Ferrari lost power and he was forced to retire with a DNF in 20th place. Verstappen went on to win with teammate Sergio Perez finishing P2 and earning the Fastest Lap point. The win vaults Verstappen to the F1 Drivers Points lead and to the top of our F1 GFT AI Driver Rankings for Round 6. How do the Go Full Throttle AI models work? Algorithms The Go Full Throttle AI Driver Rankings is a cloud based predictive analytics system that uses our proprietary algorithms utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to dynamically tune and improve accuracy over time.
The AI world is still figuring out how to deal with the amazing show of prowess that is DALL-E 2's ability to draw/paint/imagine just about anything… but OpenAI isn't the only one working on something like that. Google Research has rushed to publicize a similar model it's been working on -- which it claims is even better. Imagen (get it?) is a text-to-image diffusion-based generator built on large transformer language models that… okay, let's slow down and unpack that real quick. Text-to-image models take text inputs like "a dog on a bike" and produce a corresponding image, something that has been done for years but recently has seen huge jumps in quality and accessibility. Part of that is using diffusion techniques, which basically start with a pure noise image and slowly refine it bit by bit until the model thinks it can't make it look any more like a dog on a bike than it already does.
Feitian Technologies showed off its newest portfolio of four Android handheld devices, three of which include fingerprint biometrics, and which support an assortment of applications from law enforcement to voting. The Handheld Biometric Identification Terminal (V11) is a wireless, five-inch terminal with fingerprint, iris, and face biometric verification. Customers can choose between fingerprint sensors certified for single flat fingers at FAP30, FAP20, or FAP10, from Integrated Biometrics, Suprema, Idemia, Futronic, Aratek and SecuGen, according to the product page. The device also supports scanning of digital identity documents through NFC, MRZ Passport reading, and optical character recognition (OCR). The Multifunction Handheld Terminal (V12) terminal is intended for law enforcement that sports a fingerprint sensor with live finger detection, breathalyzer, and narcotics detector, and can issue tickets.
This course introduces the concepts of Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning. We'll discuss machine learning types and tasks, and machine learning algorithms. You'll explore Python as a popular programming language for machine learning solutions, including using some scientific ecosystem packages which will help you implement machine learning. Next, this course introduces the machine learning tools available in Microsoft Azure. We'll review standardized approaches to data analytics and you'll receive specific guidance on Microsoft's Team Data Science Approach.
