The 6 top machine learning trends


The complexity, as well as the number of active servers to manage, has increased significantly, resulting in a much larger amount of collected data to sort through and track. Despite the increase in instrumentation capabilities and the amount of collected data, enterprises barely use significantly larger data sets to improve availability and performance process effectiveness with root cause analysis and incident prediction. This field studies how to design algorithms that can learn by observing data, discovering new insights in data, developing systems that can automatically adapt and customize themselves, and designing systems where it is too complicated and costly to implement all possible circumstances (such as search engines and self-driving cars). Many organizations are finding that machine learning allows them to better analyze large amounts of data, gain valuable insights, reduce incident investigation time, determine which alerts are correlated, and what causes event storms – and even prevent incidents from happening in the first place.

Artificial Intelligence, IBM, NVIDIA Driving Changes to Credit Cards, Health Care, Physical Security


More important to me is how this will change our lives. I spent some time last week talking to IBM about how its partnership with NVIDIA and its advancements with Watson and OpenPOWER will be changing the world around us. We spoke about a number of artificial intelligence trends and several stood out for me. Artificial Intelligence and Credit Card Security Every year, financial institutions write of billions in losses due to credit card fraud, and a great deal of focus has been placed on stopping this steady drip, drip, drip of illegal cost. Currently, systems are advanced enough to do four fraud checks at the time of the transaction, but they simply aren't enough to stop the flood of people cloning, stealing and skimming credit cards to steal money.

my 2020 vision, AI Edition


I got my double espresso, going to my office to check on my emails, messages, new data charts on my screen walls, remote and close friends pics, and bills to pay... Happy to see you again. What would you like to do today? Taras: You know: pay the bills, scan the news, check on new friends and past foes pics, my investments, finish my double espresso, take Buddy for a run. Then see what wify and kids want to do for the rest of the day when they wake up. Cortana: I took care of the phones, gas, electrical, internet and all the entertainment bills last night.

An ex-Nasa chief has revealed a stealth startup that beats Apple's Siri


A startup founded by a former top boss at Nasa has emerged from so-called stealth mode with technology that claims to beat Apple, Google and Microsoft's voice recognition technology. Dan Goldin, who spent nearly all of the 1990s leading Nasa, has revealed KnuEdge, a machine learning company that already boasts Fortune 500 clients and 100m in private funding despite its under the radar nature for the last decade. "We are not about incremental technology. Our mission is fundamental transformation," said Goldin "We were swinging for the fences from the very beginning, with intent to create next-generation technologies that will in essence alter how humans interact with machines, and enable next-generation computing capabilities ranging from signal processing to machine learning." The US-based firm has revealed its first product, KnuVerse, which it claims is a military-grade voice recognition and authentication technology, and believes it is more powerful than the most advanced but early stage voice recognition used in services such as Apple's Siri and Google's Home and Alexa.

Tech Talk: Google Home's Performance Is Still Unknown


The idea of Google Home is futuristic and pretty great, but still very much cut and dry. In essence, it's meant to be a smart home hub that can power your IoT devices, communicate with just about every gadget you own, act as a speaker, take commands, and use Google's advanced artificial intelligence, machine learning and neural networking technologies to serve you in ways you may not think of. In essence, it's the ultimate form of Google Now, brought into your home and powered by Google's new Assistant. Google Home looks set to take the smart home control hub niche to a whole new level with the help of Google's advanced technologies. There are a few issues, however, and one is that we don't know much about Google Home just yet, and this makes it difficult to gauge consumer interest and how well it may compete in the marketplace.

Google I/O: Android N goes beta and here's what's new


Also: Google plays social catch-up (again) with Allo, Duo, revamped digital assistant Google unveils Google Home, takes aim at Amazon Echo Google I/O keynote: By the numbers CNET: Android Wear 2.0 coming this fall with smarter messaging, smarter fitness and better battery life Android is focusing on performance, low latency and a system UI that can be used for virtual reality. Android's just in time runtime enables apps to be installed 75 percent faster than the previous version and cuts their size by 50 percent. Android has also added Google Play Security Testing, an App Security Improvement Program as well as a safe browsing. Google also added two new window modes, picture in picture and split screen.
