Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning: A Primer for Investors @themotleyfool #stocks $GOOGL, $NVDA, $GOOG

#artificialintelligence

Instead of preprogramming software to complete a specific task, as narrow AI does, machine learning uses algorithms that allow a computer to learn from the vast amounts of data it receives so it can complete a task on its own. International Business Machines uses deep learning powered by NVIDIA's graphics processing units (GPUs) to comb through medical images to find cancer cells. The company makes the graphics processors that are integral in AI, machine learning, and deep learning, and lots of companies already look to NVIDIA's hardware to make their AI software a reality. The Motley Fool owns shares of and recommends Alphabet (A shares), Alphabet (C shares), Amazon, Facebook, and Nvidia.

Companies wanting to build image recognition and object detection can opt to use scaleapi built in api kit for the below use cases: Tagging Images for E-Commerce: Tagging listing photos can transform search and discovery, improving clickthrough rates. Facial Recognition: Our Scalers can recognize faces in any given image. This capability can be used to empower a new feature or build a great new app. Train Image Recognition ML Algorithms: Behind every great convolutional neural network (CNN) is a mountain of labeled training data. Our highly-screened Scalers can build datasets for any image recognition problem, whether you are detecting boats or recognizing kittens.


Facebook and Google need humans, not just algorithms, to filter out hate speech

#artificialintelligence

The fields of machine learning and natural language processing have made leaps and bounds in recent years, but it remains incredibly difficult for a computer to recognize whether a given phrase contains hate speech. "But at the same time, if somebody had something in their profile like, 'Proud Jew, haters gonna hate,' that may be OK. Until machines can learn the difference between "Jew hater" and "Proud Jew, haters gonna hate," though, the problem of identifying and flagging hate speech can only be solved by humans–with smart machines assisting them. "Our goal is to prevent our keyword suggestions tool from making offensive suggestions, and to stop any offensive ads appearing.


Amazon reportedly working on Alexa-enabled 'smart glasses'

Engadget

While Amazon's popular Alexa Echo devices are arguably the king of digital assistants, it's easy to forget the the retailer had a string of failures before that, especially the Fire Phone. It could be controlled by Alexa-enabled Echo products, and show the video feed on Amazon's Echo Show screen (above). Adding merit to the FT report (which hasn't been confirmed by Amazon), Google Glass founder Babak Parviz, hired away by Amazon in 2014, has been reportedly heavily involved with the Alexa glasses project. The eyeglasses and security products are supposedly coming by the end of the year, presumably in time for Christmas.

Artificial Intelligence to Amplify FinTech

@machinelearnbot

Endowing the modern workforce with AI, machine learning, payment intelligence and advanced analytics fintech will thrive, amplify and fly. The most striking AI solutions to FinTech, banks, insurance companies (now called InsureTech) and any other financial services company will probably be those that have the robust & smart financial systems with data security, machine learning (machine conciseness is very far for now) and strong analytics features in place. AI technology such as specialized hardware, AI based operating systems, strong and large data analytics tools for big data, machine learning algorithms for machine intelligence, payment intelligence, data intelligence and info-security intelligence are being used in fintech to augment tasks that people already perform. With AI power to enable security features of mobile payments mean the technology could gain traction in other areas of B2B payments and escalate blockchain to generalize, any previous application of AI, but now the AI "owns itself".


Customer Data Analytics to Uberize Retail Landscape

@machinelearnbot

It's all about granular customer data Market research for business and market intelligence and identification of customer trends is not a new thing for retailers. But the new thing that has been taking turns big time is granular customer data. Brick and mortar retailers have started banking big time on "real behavioral data". Retailers in order to keep the customer journey really engaging should develop solutions to deliver experience like a video game, where their customers should encounter goals, levels, checkpoints etc.

Marvin Minsky on Singularity 1 on 1: The Turing Test is a Joke!

#artificialintelligence

I was hoping that I will finally get my chance at the GF2045 conference in NY City. Unfortunately, Prof. Minsky had bronchitis and consequently had to speak via video. A week later, though still recovering, Marvin generously gave me a 30 min interview while attending the ISTAS13 Veilance conference in Toronto. During our conversation with Marvin Minsky we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: how he moved from biology and mathematics to Artificial Intelligence; his personal motivation and most proud accomplishment; the importance of science fiction -- in general, and his take on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein -- in particular; the Turing Test; the importance of theory of mind; the Human Brain Project; the technological singularity and why he thinks that progress in AI has stalled; his personal advice to young AI researchers...
