AI could tell you when you're about to get sick

#artificialintelligence

The devices will help gather, analyze, and display a crush of health data he wants to collect about himself--and, he hopes, from millions of others. It starts with your DNA sequence and includes data from Fitbit-style wearables that measure your steps, heart rate, and sleep patterns. Now Imagu's engineers are working with counterparts at ICX to create what they call a "virtual health brain" that will interpret the thousands of data points ICX wants to collect on each customer. During his stint as BGI's CEO, Wang helped build the company into one of the largest sequencing operations in the world.


Impact Of Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning on Trading And Investing

@machinelearnbot

I will try to explain what I mean by this: traditional technical analysis is an unprofitable method of trading because strategies based on chart patterns and indicators draw their returns from a distribution with zero mean before any transaction costs. Traditional technical analysis, i.e., chart patterns, some simple indicators, certain theories of price action, etc., was not effective to start with. Some developed algos and AI expert systems to identify the formations in advance and then trade against them, causing in the process volatility that retail traders, also known as weak hands, could not cope with. However, some quantitative technical analysis methods often work well, such as mean-reversion and statistical arbitrage models, including ML algorithms that use features with economic value.


Forget Police Sketches: Researchers Perfectly Reconstruct Faces by Reading Brainwaves

#artificialintelligence

Using brain scans and direct neuron recording from macaque monkeys, the team found specialized "face patches" that respond to specific combinations of facial features. In the early 2000s, while recording from epilepsy patients with electrodes implanted into their brains, Quian Quiroga and colleagues found that face cells are particularly picky. In a stroke of luck, Tsao and team blew open the "black box" of facial recognition while working on a different problem: how to describe a face mathematically, with a matrix of numbers. In macaque monkeys with electrodes implanted into their brains, the team recorded from three "face patches"--brain areas that respond especially to faces--while showing the monkeys the computer-generated faces.


The role of artificial intelligence in the IoT revolution - IoT Agenda

Get up to speed on IoT security basics and learn how to devise your own IoT security strategy in our new e-guide. It means that we should collect and analyze data immediately to maintain a continuous flow of information. To identify previously known or new patterns immediately, it is necessary to provide real-time data collection. Every large corporation collects and maintains a huge amount of human-oriented data associated with its customers, including their preferences, purchases, habits and other personal information.


Top 5 Digital Transformation Trends In Manufacturing

#artificialintelligence

Today, these advanced algorithms are transforming the way the manufacturing industry collects information, performs skilled labor, and predicts consumer behavior. Smart factories with integrated IT systems provide relevant data to both sides of the supply chain more easily, increasing production capacity by 20%. Robots and other automated technology are also integral in improving speed and efficiency, allowing manufacturing companies to "optimize production workflows, inventory, Work in Progress, and value chain decisions." With this new level of predictive accuracy comes an improvement in condition monitoring processes, providing manufacturers "with the scale to manage Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) at the plant level increasing OEE performance from 65% to 85%."


Artificial Intelligence: The future of finance?

#artificialintelligence

Stock markets are overrun with AI traders, and Swedish banks now use AI chatbots or'virtual consultants' to answer client's queries; a move echoed by Discovery Health, Absa Bank and Lancewood. Discovery Health unveiled its artificially intelligent Virtual Agent on July 5. "At the JSE we don't have AI deployed in our environment, but it is possible that some of our member firms may have deployed AI as part of algorithmic trading," says Tshwantsho Matsena, information officer at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. In the dealing room, AI is processing massive amounts of data and turning it into decision support."


Understanding the Written Word Using Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP)

#artificialintelligence

Removing stop words ensures that NLP is only applied to words that add meaning to the sentence and thereby improves the speed at which NLP routines can be executed. Natural Language Processing: how can machines identify topics that people are talking about? The service has returned JSON, in the Key Phrases node, the key phrases "staff", "wonderful experience" and "rooms" have been identified. For example, in 2016, DeepMind, (Googles artificial intelligence company) formed a partnership with Moorfields Eye Hospital in London.


The empowered employee: How 6 companies are arming their teams with data - Watson

#artificialintelligence

H&R Block believes it can do better by enlisting IBM Watson's natural language processing to analyze tax documents and find deductions and credits, lower the amount of taxes people pay, and maximize their refunds. In doing so, they're combining over 60 years of tax expertise with Watson's cognitive computing technology to put all that knowledge at their employees' fingertips. Tesla drives engagement within its employee base to drive the company's business in innovative ways. IBM is also simplifying the process for employees by working with the third-party company, Best Doctors, a global medical information services company that helps collect medical and lab information and coordinates with the Watson services as appropriate.


Beginners Guide to Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), NLP, Deep Learning, Big Data Analytics and Blockchain

@machinelearnbot

The new technologies like Machine Learning, Internet of Things, Deep Learning, NLP, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud, Big data and Predictive analytics are having a massive impact in India. This post is a Beginners Guide to Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), Natural Language Processing (NLP), Deep Learning, Big Data Analytics and Blockchain. While big data is all about data, patterns (or trends) insights & impacts, internet of things is about data, devices, and connectivity. The Internet of things (IoT) is the inter-networking of physical devices (also termed as connected devices or smart devices), vehicles, buildings and other objects (which could be smart wearable, diagnostic device, kitchen appliances etc.)


The Next Addition to Your Marketing Department Should Be a Chatbot

#artificialintelligence

AI-powered virtual assistants are dedicated pieces of software that implement machine learning and natural language processing to communicate with users. AI-powered virtual assistants can directly help your sales team close more deals by providing them information during a sales call. By analyzing browsing and purchasing patterns, interests, and other relevant demographics, you can qualify prospects and show your sales team where each prospect is located within the buyer's journey. Although developing and perfecting an AI-powered virtual assistant takes time, you can increase your sales conversion rates if you implement it correctly.
