Seattle is paying the most for its engineers

The nation's more than 1.8 million software engineers are in high demand. SAN FRANCISCO -- Demand for the nation's more than 1.8 million software engineers has hundreds of companies scrambling for talent in machine learning and data sciences. Machine learning and data science skills rank as the most in-demand, though both specialties have the least experienced workforces -- at less than five years -- because they are emerging fields. Yet hundreds of thousands of jobs remain unfilled, and demand is tightening due to the need for highly skilled workers in non-tech industries such as banking and healthcare.

Apple wants to create an army of machine learning developers

Mashable

Machine learning is one of the hottest buzzwords in tech right now, and it generally refers to software that can improve itself based on user response. Back in June at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, Apple announced new machine learning integrations so developers could bring it into their apps. Now Apple is giving even more guidance with a Machine Learning Journal, which is all about closing that knowledge gap -- and making its own products better in the process. SEE ALSO: Get the tools to land a machine learning job that robots can't steal The journal will be full of posts written by Apple engineers about their own work using technology for machine learning to create new products for millions of people.

The challenge of verification and testing of machine learning

#artificialintelligence

Do we intend to verify or test the system only for "naturally occurring" legitimate inputs, or do we intend to provide guarantees for its behavior on arbitrary, degenerate inputs? Statistical learning theory provides guarantees that the test error rate is unlikely to exceed some threshold, but these guarantees are often so conservative that they are not used by engineers in practice. The natural way to test robustness to adversarial examples is simply to evaluate the accuracy of the model on a test set that has been adversarially perturbed to create adversarial examples [SZS13]. It is clear that testing of naturally occurring inputs is sufficient for traditional machine learning applications, but verification of unusual inputs is necessary for security guarantees.


Google is using machine learning to sort good apps from bad on the Play Store

#artificialintelligence

With machine learning, Google can use peer grouping to scan apps that are being loaded on to the Play Store en masse. In its most recent annual Android security review, the percentage of users who had installed harmful apps from the official Play Store fell from 0.15 percent in 2015 to 0.05 percent in 2016. Many users -- particularly those in China -- install Android apps from alternative app stores, which the company doesn't have control over. And when taking these into account, the number of individuals installing bad apps actually rose slightly, from 0.5 percent in 2015 to 0.7 percent in 2016.
