BAI Beacon - Unveiling New Research on Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

BAI Beacon is teaming up with Jim Marous and Digital Banking Report on the release of a brand new report, A.I. The report will debut at BAI Beacon. Attendees will not only be the first to get their hands on Digital Banking Report's cutting-edge research on A.I.--one of the hottest topics in the banking industry today--but they will also hear it discussed by thought leaders from BAI, Digital Banking Report and Deluxe. The new report has a $495 value, but BAI Beacon attendees will get it for free as part of their registration.


What will the smart city of the future look like? - Information Age

#artificialintelligence

In 1900, only 14% percent of the world's population lived in urban areas. The number of smart cities around the world is expected to grow exponentially over the next few years and by 2050, 70 per cent of the world's population will be living in smart cities. Lighting technology will be at the heart of urban life in 2030, helping deliver more sustainable and better-connected smart cities. A city's lighting infrastructure will offer enormous potential to be part of a city-wide network capable of acquiring data and delivering information and services to and from millions of devices, from dustbins to autonomous vehicles.


Tom Davenport says AI is entering its second stage 7wData

#artificialintelligence

For an idea on just how hot, artificial intelligence professionals are showing up on a number of the top technology job reports for most in-demand job roles. Davenport says early adopters of artificial intelligence are now ready for phase two – putting it to work for customers and getting real value from it. Now we're moving toward actual production," Davenport says. This bodes well for data professionals who have an early lead on prized AI skills, Davenport says.



Amazon.com: A Machine-Learning Approach to Phishing Detection and Defense eBook: Iraj Sadegh Amiri, O. A. Akanbi, E. Fazeldehkordi: Kindle Store

@machinelearnbot

I suppose it was inevitable that machine learning would be applied to detecting phishing messages. The sheer volume of these can be used as one method to find spam. In contrast, some types of phishing only send a few messages to a very specific group of recipients. While granted other phishing methods are a variant of spam, relying on millions of messages and hoping to snare a few unwary users.


Functional Programming Principles in Scala Coursera

@machinelearnbot

About this course: Functional programming is becoming increasingly widespread in industry. In this course you will discover the elements of the functional programming style and learn how to apply them usefully in your daily programming tasks. You will also develop a solid foundation for reasoning about functional programs, by touching upon proofs of invariants and the tracing of execution symbolically. By the end of this course you will be able to: - understand the principles of functional programming, - write purely functional programs, using recursion, pattern matching, and higher-order functions, - combine functional programming with objects and classes, - design immutable data structures, - reason about properties of functions, - understand generic types for functional programs Recommended background: You should have at least one year programming experience.


Classification with Scikit-Learn

#artificialintelligence

With the dataset splitted into training and test sets, we can start building a classification model. Actually, classifiers like Random Forest and Gradient Boosting classification performs best for most datasets and challenges on Kaggle (That does not mean you should rule out all other classifiers). Again, we will split the dataset into a 70% training set and a 30% test set and start training and validating a batch of the eight most used classifiers. For datasets, where this is not the case we can play around with the features in the dataset, add extra features from additional datasets or change the parameters of the classifiers in order to improve the accuracy.


White paper: Machine Learning explained - how it builds better, faster predictions for your business - Iridium

#artificialintelligence

The use of Machine Learning (ML) algorithms and tools is becoming more widespread in mainstream data analytics. ML models are used increasingly in marketing to analyse large amounts of data that can uncover insights about how consumers interact with a brand and predict how they would respond to a future marketing campaign. Algorithms can be trained to detect complex relationships and trends within sales data and create accurate sales forecasts nearly in real time. In this white paper, we explain the principles behind ML and explore the most commonly used ML algorithms.


The 5 Levels of Meeting AI – Rowan Trollope – Medium

#artificialintelligence

Moving beyond basic voice recognition, we'll start to see bots that understand context and are aware of the state of a meeting they're in. Level 4 meeting bots will help teams succeed by keeping people on track after a meeting ends. This level of bot is aware of overlapping meeting topics, workers' individual skillsets, and the projects that people are working on across the company, based on data gleaned not just from content of meetings, but also from social network analysis that includes chat and email data mining. A Level 5 bot might be aware of over-arching company goals, and could suggest team members for projects, and make introductions between people based on goals, project needs, and personal compatibility.
