Popular Artificial Intelligence APIs to Explore Today


"Just use AI!" While you may have heard this before, using artificial intelligence can seem like a lot of work. But it doesn't have to be, and there are many AI APIs out there ready for you to leverage. Check out some of them in Postman's latest featured list, Artificial Intelligence APIs, then get started straight away by forking any or all of these popular APIs to your own workspace. OpenAI is a non-profit AI research company whose goal is to advance digital intelligence. They've been widely talked about recently when they announced Codex, an AI that translates natural language to code.

How to Transform Your Data in Snowflake - KDnuggets


Data transformation is integral to the analytics workflow and process. With analytics data coming from an ever growing array of disparate data sources, data transformation models the data to make it more understandable and consumable by the analytics and business teams. However, data transformation is the biggest bottleneck in the analytics workflow. According to IDC, analytics teams only spend 45% of their time performing analysis, with the remaining time spent searching for and preparing data. Additionally, a survey by TDWI cites a "lack of skilled personnel to model data" (36% of respondents) as the top challenge in cloud data integration.

AI and Big Data Analytics: Executive Q&A with David Tareen of SAS


Tareen: A complex area where I hope to see growth over the next 5-10 years has large implications for the world: AI algorithms becoming more imaginative. Imagination is something that comes very easily to us humans. For example, a child can see a table as both a table and a hiding place to use when playing a game of hide-and-go-seek. The process of imagination is very complex for an AI algorithm -- to learn from one data domain and apply that learning to a different data domain. Transfer learning is a start, however, and as AI gets better at imagination, it will have the potential to better diagnose disease or spot root causes of climate change.

Can AI Help Prevent Natural Disasters?


Advanced analytics and other AI-driven tools and technologies have been transforming the way organizations function by harnessing valuable information from the largest datasets and providing important insights. With the continued growth of cognitive technologies and increasingly widespread adoption by many industries, what will the future of advanced analytics and AI adoption look like? With the evolution of big data analytics over the past few years, the opportunities to apply this knowledge and to see how different industries are embracing AI and ML has shown tremendous value. However, the evolution and future of analytics doesn't come without challenges. In a recent AI Today podcast interview with Antonio Cotroneo, Director of Technical Content Strategy at OmniSci, spoke about these potential challenges as well as opportunities for industries.

Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in the Indo-Pacific


What is the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) and big data on societies in the Indo-Pacific? How are countries using AI and big data to enhance their national security and advance their national interests? And what are the major regulatory issues? For a perspective on these and other matters, Jongsoo Lee interviewed Simon Chesterman, dean and provost's chair professor of the National University of Singapore Faculty of Law and senior director of AI Governance at AI Singapore. What are nations in the Indo-Pacific doing to develop their artificial intelligence (AI) and big data capabilities?

Python for Data Science & Machine Learning from A-Z


In this practical, hands-on course you'll learn how to program using Python for Data Science and Machine Learning. This includes data analysis, visualization, and how to make use of that data in a practical manner. Our main objective is to give you the education not just to understand the ins and outs of the Python programming language for Data Science and Machine Learning, but also to learn exactly how to become a professional Data Scientist with Python and land your first job. We'll go over some of the best and most important Python libraries for data science such as NumPy, Pandas, and Matplotlib NumPy -- A library that makes a variety of mathematical and statistical operations easier; it is also the basis for many features of the pandas library. Pandas -- A Python library created specifically to facilitate working with data, this is the bread and butter of a lot of Python data science work.

How Data Science is Driving Digital Transformation Now


In an increasingly competitive world, we should have a deep understanding of the business in which we operate, how it is evolving, and the new innovations that we could embrace or build to remain competitive and conquer new market segments. To do this, we must be able to develop a clear vision of transformation that takes us to another level of performance. By embracing Digital Transformation, we will deal with artificial intelligence, machine and deep learning, virtual reality, and a lot of other innovative technologies. At first sight, it might even sound fearful to lead the business in such a complex and intricate direction. With this in mind, we will consider some strategies to better understand and take competitive advantage of the huge streaming of data in the current era of the digital revolution.

AI will reduce SA's crime stats as early as 2023 –


Applying artificial intelligence to big data can predict – and prevent – crime. When a social media site throws out an ad for a product you were just discussing over the phone, it's easy to jump to conclusions: They must be listening, surely. But the truth is that the site employed artificial intelligence (AI) to predict your behaviour. You searched for a yeast starter last week and commented on a friend's photo of sourdough bread yesterday. The ad for a bread-making course that seemingly pops up out of the blue was shown to you because the data predicted you might be interested in it – based on your own and previous users' behaviour.

Developer Advocate - Data Science & Machine Learning


There is only one Data Cloud. Snowflake's founders started from scratch and designed a data platform built for the cloud that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. They engineered Snowflake to power the Data Cloud, where thousands of organizations unlock the value of their data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. This is our vision: a world with endless insights to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today and reveal the possibilities of tomorrow. Snowfake's future success depends upon making our users: data scientists, app developers, and data engineers successful.
