A Quick Introduction to AI

#artificialintelligence

Rather than being just devices that perform tasks that the programmer tells them to do, AI enables computers to perform tasks (autonomously) that normally require human intelligence: visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. Artificial Intelligence is all about training computer systems to learn, analyze, think and make decisions like humans at a greater speed. Machine Learning: Machine learning is the new paradigm where computer systems and machines use algorithms to analyze massive (big) data sets and learn from the data to solve problems on their own rather than using traditional functional programming. Natural Language Processing (NLP): NLP is the computer's ability to recognize and understand human speech as it is spoken.


The Real Value of Machine Learning: Beyond the Buzzwords Citrix Blogs

#artificialintelligence

There's a lot of hype over machine learning and data science these days. Machine learning and data science strategies need to be well thought-out and planned. Machine learning can help you move past a generic authentication and access security analysis model, toward a user and entity behavioral analytics (UEBA) model. And it can help control costs by providing executive and product management the information they need to make informed, strategic business decisions.


Drones and phones are the next frontier for AI breakthroughs

#artificialintelligence

"Machine learning and artificial intelligence not only makes devices more autonomous and valuable but also allows them to be more personal depending on what a customer likes or needs," says Vadim Budaev, software development team leader at Scorch AI. Much of the work in the area is being led by tech's biggest companies, which are adding basic AI and machine learning applications to products as they develop them. If phones can't process data quickly enough, AI systems will run down their batteries. Google's Tensor Processing Units powers its translate and search systems, while UK startup Graphcore has developed its own machine learning chips.


AI May Soon Replace Even the Most Elite Consultants

#artificialintelligence

While the financial services industry has already begun the shift from active management to passive management, artificial intelligence will move the market even further, to management by smart machines, as in the case of Blackrock, which is rolling computer-driven algorithms and models into more traditional actively-managed funds. It will be particularly interesting to see how artificial intelligence affects the decisions of corporate leaders -- men and women who make the many decisions that affect our everyday lives as customers, employees, partners, and investors. But AI can also help support more complex decisions in key areas such as human resources, budgeting, marketing, capital allocation and even corporate strategy -- long the bastion of bespoke consulting firms such as McKinsey, Bain, and BCG, and the major marketing agencies. They used this new skill to make resource allocation decisions to different marketing choices, thereby "eliminating guesswork."


Making logistics processes smarter with cloud

#artificialintelligence

With artificial intelligence (AI) gaining pace, businesses are rethinking and redesigning their operations to make their logistics'smarter', to make new age solutions like anticipatory and elastic logistics possible. AI is transforming the way business operations are performed, making the ecosystem connected and making it a'smarter world.' When AI is infused with'cognitive' systems--next-generation systems that work side by side with humans, accelerating our ability to create, learn, make decisions and think--it then transcends barriers of scale, speed, scope and standards. Today, the confluence of four fundamental shifts - IoT, AI, changing business demands and real-time API's is making a huge paradigm shift that helps organizations become smarter and better.


The Invasion Of Chatbots In HR – Chatbots Magazine

#artificialintelligence

This is where Chatbots can make a difference and help the employees with any HR related issues. The use of bots in HR helps to accumulate precise data from employees; it saves time and ultimately results in increasing the productivity. Instead of remembering everything at once, an HR chat bot will answer the questions in real time, which results in faster decision making for the employees. They can be used to gather employee date and make informed decisions to create more efficient processes.


Artificial Intelligence: Understanding the Hype – Towards Data Science – Medium

#artificialintelligence

Deep Learning: Google Now also known as Google Assistant on your Android smartphone, uses Deep Learning to perform tasks using large amounts of data. When you ask a question, the Google Assistant searches through large amounts of data to give you an answer. It solves real world problems by using neural networks to mimic human decision making. The machine understands how to mimic human decisions by training itself on large amounts of data.


There's a big problem with AI: even its creators can't explain how it works

#artificialintelligence

The car's underlying AI technology, known as deep learning, has proved very powerful at solving problems in recent years, and it has been widely deployed for tasks like image captioning, voice recognition, and language translation. The resulting program, which the researchers named Deep Patient, was trained using data from about 700,000 individuals, and when tested on new records, it proved incredibly good at predicting disease. But it was not until the start of this decade, after several clever tweaks and refinements, that very large--or "deep"--neural networks demonstrated dramatic improvements in automated perception. Deep learning has transformed computer vision and dramatically improved machine translation.


Deep Learning and the Future of Auditing - The CPA Journal

#artificialintelligence

This article discusses how the cognitive capabilities of deep learning could be applied to various audit procedures to enable audit automation and improve decision making. Although the idea of artificial neural networks dates back to the 1950s, such networks could not be called real artificial intelligence until recent advances in computational power and data storage enabled the development of deep neural networks that model the structure and thinking process of the brain. The hidden layers of a deep neural network automatically "learn" from massive amounts of data (especially semi-structured or unstructured data) received by the input layer (e.g., millions of images, years' worth of speeches, tera-bytes of text files), recognize data patterns in more and more abstract representations as the data is processed and transmitted from one hidden layer to the next, and classify the data into predefined categories in the output layer. While the challenges of big data analysis require a willingness to adopt more advanced data analytical technologies, such as deep learning, the availability of massive amounts of financial data facilitates the implementation and improvement of this technology in auditing.


A Digital Dawn for the Insurance Industry

#artificialintelligence

Far too often when a broker is sitting opposite a client or has them on the other end of the phone they are unable to draw up a single customer view that shows all the policies that the client has taken out such as for example home insurance, car insurance, business liability insurance, making it impossible for to offer timely and relevant offers. It is, however, possible for experienced system integrators to collect data from these different systems and form a single repository for a complete and organic single customer view. Add to this the contribution of Artificial Intelligence and companies will be enabled to further improve strategy and decision making across the business in an over-arching Business Intelligence framework. It is therefore highly cost effective to engage with a third-party consultant to help provide a roadmap of the process of improving user experience via greater digitalisation and to help implement or entirely outsource the process.
