With advances in machine learning and the deployments of neural networks, logistic regression-powered models are expanding their uses throughout PayPal. PayPal's deep learning system is able to filter out deceptive merchants and crack down on sales of illegal products. Kutsyy explained the machines can identify "why transactions fail, monitoring businesses more efficiently," avoiding the need to buy more hardware for problem solving.

For example, for personalized recommendations, we have been working with learning to rank methods that learn individual rankings over item sets. Figure 1: Typical data science workflow, starting with raw data that is turned into features and fed into learning algorithms, resulting in a model that is applied on future data. This means that this pipeline is iterated and improved many times, trying out different features, different forms of preprocessing, different learning methods, or maybe even going back to the source and trying to add more data sources. Probably the main difference between production systems and data science systems is that production systems are real-time systems that are continuously running.
By using memory-optimized tables, resume features are stored in main memory and disk IO could be significantly reduced. If the database engine server detects more than 8 physical cores per NUMA node or socket, it will automatically create soft-NUMA nodes that ideally contain 8 cores. We then further created 4 SQL resource pools and 4 external resource pools  to specify the CPU affinity of using the same set of CPUs in each node. We can create resource governance for R services on SQL Server  by routing those scoring batches into different workload groups (Figure.
LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jan 4, 2017) - CES -- NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today unveiled the new NVIDIA SHIELD TV -- an Android open-platform media streamer built on bleeding-edge visual computing technology that delivers unmatched experiences in streaming, gaming and AI. Sporting a sleek, new design and now shipping with both a remote and a game controller, SHIELD provides the best, most complete entertainment experience in the living room. "NVIDIA's rich heritage in visual computing and deep learning has enabled us to create this revolutionary device," said Jen-Hsun Huang, founder and chief executive officer of NVIDIA, who revealed SHIELD during his opening keynote address at CES. "SHIELD TV is the world's most advanced streamer. Its brilliant 4K HDR quality, hallmark NVIDIA gaming performance and broad access to media content will bring families hours of joy. And with SHIELD's new AI home capability, we can control and interact with content through the magic of artificial intelligence from anywhere in the house," he said.
Updated 11th November 2016 with the latest artificial intelligence (AI) software from Sentient to undertake complex multivariate testing. A/B and multivariate testing tools are essential for digital marketers as they enable you to deliver and measure the relative performance of different user experiences through robust online controlled experiments. Increasingly they also allow you to personalise your customer experience and allow you to discover new customer segments based upon behaviour rather than just demographics. A/B testing allows you to run an online controlled experiment to measure the difference in performance between an existing webpage (e.g. A/B testing tools randomly select visitors for each design and uses robust statistical analysis to measure the performance between the control and the variant.
Today Mellanox announced that one of China's leading intelligent speech and language technologies' companies, iFLYTEK, has chosen Mellanox's end-to-end 25G and 100G Ethernet solutions based on ConnectX adapters and Spectrum switches for their next generation machine learning center. The partnership between Mellanox and iFLYTEK will enable iFLYTEK to achieve a high speech recognition rate of 97 percent. Mellanox's solution has enabled iFLYTEK to build a next generation machine learning center that will be accelerate our application performance and provide us with our future needs," said Dr. Zhiguo Wang, executive vice president of iFLYTEK Research Institute. "Moreover, we leverage the scalability of Mellanox Ethernet solutions to grow our compute and storage needs in the most efficient manner." To support a diverse number and growing type of applications, iFLYTEK requires a high performance and efficient data center network solution that needs to be both compatible with the company's current infrastructure and scalable for future computing and storage requirements.
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.
If you are a data scientist, business analyst or a machine learning engineer, you need model management – a system that manages and orchestrates the entire lifecycle of your learning model. Analytical models must be trained, compared and monitored before deploying into production, requiring many steps to take place in order to operationalize a model's lifecycle. There isn't a better tool for that than SQL Server! In this blog, I will describe how SQL Server can enable you to automate, simplify and accelerate machine learning model management at scale – from build, train, test and deploy all the way to monitor, retrain and redeploy or retire. SQL Server treats models just like data – storing them as serialized varbinary objects.

We are in the midst of a great evolution when it comes to website design. Formerly text-heavy sites now rely on eye-catching images and video to draw in visitors, improve engagement rates and drive readership. Articles with relevant images get 94 percent more total views, according to digital marketing expert Jeff Bullas. And images are vital to websites influencing page views and user engagement for news articles, press material, local search, eCommerce, and social media. The addition of rich media is not the only factor impacting web design today.
