CrowdFlower expands to help companies implement machine learning

#artificialintelligence

CrowdFlower, a company that helps customers build AI systems by providing them with training data, announced today that it's getting into the business of helping companies implement machine learning. It could help existing customers get unstuck with a system that isn't working, assist businesses that have already implemented one machine learning system get started with something completely new, and also get brand new customers started with implementing AI. This doesn't mean that CrowdFlower is abandoning its work providing companies with training data -- quite the contrary. Monica Rogati and Adrian Weller -- both veterans of the machine learning ecosystem -- will give CrowdFlower input on its technology and product strategy, as well as advising the company on developments in the AI ecosystem at large.


Chinese State Council Guidelines for Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

The Chinese government's wish-list for AI researchers is pretty ambitious: "Breakthroughs should be made in basic theories of AI, such as big data intelligence, multimedia aware computing, human-machine hybrid intelligence, swarm intelligence and automated decision-making." A common technology system should be developed based on algorithms, data and hardware. Technologies in the system include a computational knowledge engine, swarm computing, virtual reality modeling and natural language processing. New industries using AI technology should be developed, such as smart robot, smart vehicle, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and smart terminal.

Importance of Machine Learning for Your Enterprise

#artificialintelligence

Software development outsourcing companies are even ready to pay high salaries to the limited talent available in the world to have an edge in the Tech market. As per software development outsourcing experts, machine learning is a technique that develops smart algorithms which have the ability to help computers self-learn without being explicitly programmed for it. Once a techie is able to frame a fool-proof model for this function, the machine identifies the essential data, sorts it out, shifts it to relevant folders and even limits long and complicated integration. When it comes to making use of machine learning for preparing marketing strategies, software development outsourcing veterans claim that their teams were able to develop much more dynamic strategies than before using machine learning technology.


Martech 2017: The four biggest trends so far this year

#artificialintelligence

Marketers are learning to expect that platforms offer important insights pulled from layers of hidden data, make predictions about customers and know how to see a world of images, objects and sounds. So, we've seen the boom in efforts to make advertising more direct and transparent, such as the increasingly popular header bidding trend. In the past few months, for instance, people-based marketing was extended in a LiveRamp-based consortium, in Time Inc./Viant's marketing platform, and in a new publisher consortium from Sonobi. The same transparency urge behind header bidding and people-based marketing -- understanding what the deal is and who you're dealing with, whether marketer or customer -- is similarly driving General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a European Union-based consumer privacy initiative that could have a significant impact in the US and elsewhere.

45 hospital and healthcare executives outline the hospital of the future

#artificialintelligence

Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer at Memorial Hermann (Houston): "For decades, healthcare institutions operated under the assumption that people who are sick or injured should be seen by a physician in a clinic or at the bedside in the hospital, but there's been a dramatic shift in recent years that's upending the way traditional hospital systems think about patient care. Patient care areas, including dedicated spaces for family, will provide easy access to information and services. CEO and Chairman of Insightec (Tirat Carmel, Israel): "Imagine for a moment that a physician can see inside a patient's body and treat a medical condition without making an incision, and that the patient returns home the same day with no side effects, stitches or long recovery time. Today, patients are accustomed to taking time out of their day to visit healthcare providers in person, including for relatively quick visits like check-ups, urgent care and pre-procedure appointments.


How the rise of artificial intelligence will affect the FS industry

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning isn't a brand new concept and when we look specifically at the financial services (FS) sector, its noticeable that it has always been one of the lead drivers of new technology trends with data analytics, mobile banking and new payment methods. Banks and financial service providers have undergone sweeping change over the last decade with numerous challenges around regulation, customer experience, start-ups and market volatility. Larger volumes of data and information allows financial services firms to create more accurate models to generate a better fit for different FS products. Whether its supporting customer experience or automating regulatory compliance, FS organisations need to embrace developments in the AI space and plan for how they can support and improve their business in the future.
