Master machine learning -- and snag a great job -- with these key job skills

#artificialintelligence

If you'd go by the marketing newsletters of leading IT solutions vendors of the world, it would appear that artificial intelligence and machine learning are ideas that have come into being, almost magically, in the past two to three years. Artificial intelligence, in fact, is a term that was coined way back in the 1950s by computer programmers and researchers to describe machines that could respond with appropriate behaviors to abstract problems without human input. Machine learning is one of the more prominent approaches to making artificial intelligence a reality. It is centered on the idea of creating algorithms that are inherently capable of identifying patterns in data and improving their outcomes based on the large datasets. This guide is dedicated to helping you understand and identify the fundamental skills you need to master machine learning technologies and find fulfilling employment in this hot and growing field.


Real Time Digital Image Processing of Agricultural Data

@machinelearnbot

In my earlier articles, I had discussed about about application of Big data for gathering Insights on green revolution and witnessed about a research work on supply chain management using big data analytics on agriculture. Incrementally, got an opportunity to implement data science methodology (a game theory approach) to make the results of SCM as an incentive compatible one. However, in this article I am trying to discuss about a large scale digital image processing obtained using time-series photographs of agricultural fields and sensor data for parameters, that should be done parallely with the help of Big Data Analytics such that the result of this work can facilitate SCM process exponentially. We are focusing on using deep learning and machine learning techniques for identifying patterns for making predictins and decision making on large-scale stored / near real-time data sets. By this, we can identify the crop type, quality, maturity period for harvesting, early identification of bugs and diseases, soil quality attributes, early identification of need for soil nourishments etc., on a larger farms.


How to improve your BI… with AI 7wData

#artificialintelligence

The big dream of Big Data was that it would empower people and organisations to find out just about anything they needed from the vast pools of data being collected all around them. That with the right data, there would be no great unanswerable questions holding you back, or leaving your future performance to chance. The problem, as we soon discovered, is that data on its own doesn't solve anything. Unless you know what to ask and how to frame your question, it won't help you at all. Even many so-called self-service Business Intelligence and data analysis platforms have failed to help ordinary business users access data in the way they want to get the answers they urgently need.


Where are developers looking next?

@machinelearnbot

As part of the research underpinning Developer Economics we actively monitor industry trends and opportunities, looking for new areas of significant developer interest. In our Developer Economics survey, we invested in trends in Data Science and Machine Learning among other areas of emerging tech- the latter probably being the least hyped emerging tech space with the most developer activity. A side effect of there now being a 1990s level supercomputer in 2 3 billion pockets worldwide is that we're drowning in data. All of the data collected in human history, up to the turn of the millennium, is certainly less than we now generate every day. The Internet of Things is adding sensors to anything and everything, which will compound this problem.

Investors beware: there's plenty buzz around artificial intelligence (AI) as more and more companies say they're using it. In some cases, companies are using older data analytics tools and labeling it as AI for a public relations boost. But identifying companies actually getting material revenue growth from AI can be tricky. X AI uses computer algorithms to replicate the human ability to learn and make predictions. AI software needs computing power to find patterns and make inferences from large quantities of data.


Machine Learning And Big Data Know It Wasn't You Who Just Swiped Your Credit Card

International Business Times

You're sitting at home minding your own business when you get a call from your credit card's fraud detection unit asking if you've just made a purchase at a department store in your city. It wasn't you who bought expensive electronics using your credit card – in fact, it's been in your pocket all afternoon. So how did the bank know to flag this single purchase as most likely fraudulent? Credit card companies have a vested interest in identifying financial transactions that are illegitimate and criminal in nature. According to the Federal Reserve Payments Study, Americans used credit cards to pay for 26.2 billion purchases in 2012.

Artificial intelligence is not fiction. It is already our reality and has been for a very long time. Its origins date back to the 1950s. How has it changed since then? Are computers able to teach themselves?

Microsoft Azure customers now can run workloads on Cray supercomputers

ZDNet

Microsoft and Cray are enabling Azure customers to run certain workloads on Cray supercomputing hardware that's installed in Microsoft datacenters. The pair announced on October 23 that customers in select Microsoft datacenters will have the option to use Cray XC and Cray CS supercomputers attached to Cray ClusterStor storage systems. The systems will be connected directly to Azure and will integrate with Azure virtual machines, Azure Data Lake storage, as well as with Microsoft's artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning services. AI has become one of the great, meaningless buzzwords of our time. In this video, the Chief Data Scientist of Dun and Bradstreet explains AI in clear business terms.
