Accelerate Apache Spark Development and Operations

#artificialintelligence

Enterprises are increasingly adopting Spark for tasks ranging from ingestion, ETL, and data processing to advanced analytics and machine learning. But despite its growing popularity, Apache Spark is complex and the learning curve is steep. Data-driven enterprises can now rely on a low-code solution that provides an alternative to time-consuming and tedious manual programming. Find out how StreamAnalytix provides a practical and viable alternative to the complexities of building enterprise-grade Spark applications.


5 Steps to Maximize Business Impact with Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

Regardless of the metric you decide to optimize, it's necessary to establish a baseline measure of performance. This baseline provides a point of comparison that enables you to track your progress. It also allows you to judge the rate of return you'll get by increasing the complexity of your modeling solution. Suppose you work for a real estate firm and are asked to build a model to predict the price of a house. You decide to optimize for RMSE and build a linear regression model with features including the square footage of the house, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and other information.


Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Training in Hyderabad

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence or AI has already reached citizen scale making its mark in everyday applications such as healthcare, e-commerce, automobiles, financial services, defense etcetera. In layman terms, it is yet another zone of computer science that concentrates on the creation of intelligent machines that do the work of humans and indeed act like them. Prameya DS holds the best artificial intelligence training in Hyderabad with a complete collection of advanced cognitive science, various level of mathematical concepts such as probability, calculus, algorithms, statistics, and multiple programming languages and coding. Since Artificial Intelligence is to perform the logical tasks without the presence of a human, a lucrative Artificial Intelligence Course in Hyderabad must be needed to learn the nitty-gritty details and Prameya DS produced it for you. Our program starts with the essential languages - Python and R followed by a detailed survey of Mathematical and Statistical concepts.

Exploratory Data Analysis (Non-Visual)

#artificialintelligence

I get asked many times "How can I do a good Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) so that I get the necessary information for feature engineering and building machine learning model?" In this and the next post, I hope to get the question answered. I will NOT claim my process is the best but I hope as more people come into the field, they can use my process as a basis for better EDA and build better models. There are two main benefits of doing EDA and these benefits will reap benefits through the model building process. I will discuss EDA in two posts, non-visual (mainly through simple calculations) and visual.


Mona Lisa frown: Machine learning brings old paintings and photos to life – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning researchers have produced a system that can recreate lifelike motion from just a single frame of a person's face, opening up the possibility of animating not just photos but also paintings. It's not perfect, but when it works, it is -- like much AI work these days -- eerie and fascinating. The model is documented in a paper published by Samsung AI Center, which you can read here on Arxiv. It's a new method of applying facial landmarks on a source face -- any talking head will do -- to the facial data of a target face, making the target face do what the source face does. This in itself isn't new -- it's part of the whole synthetic imagery issue confronting the AI world right now (we had an interesting discussion about this recently at our Robotics AI event in Berkeley).

Is it time for Alexa and Siri to have a "MeToo moment"?

#artificialintelligence

More people will speak to a voice assistance machine than to their partners in the next five years, the U.N. says, so it matters what they have to say. The numbers are eye-popping: 85% of Americans use at least one product with artificial intelligence (AI), and global use will reach 1.8 billion by 2021, so the impact of these "robot overlords" is unparalleled. But (AI) voice assistants, including Apple's Siri, Amazon's Alexa, Microsoft's Cortana, and Google's Assistant are inflaming gender stereotypes and teaching sexism to a generation of millennials by creating a model of "docile and eager-to-please helpers," with acceptance of sexual harassment and verbal abuse, a new U.N. study says. A 145-page U.N. report published this week by the educational, scientific and cultural organization UNESCO concludes that the voices we speak to are programmed to be submissive and accept abuse as a norm. The report is titled, "I'd blush if I could: Closing Gender Divides in Digital Skills Through Education."


AI Goes To High School

#artificialintelligence

Aidan Wen is well on his way toward a career in artificial intelligence. The high school junior already has two semesters of machine-learning courses under his belt. Last summer he competed for a $12,000 prize sponsored by the Radiological Society of North America for the best ML model for spotting signs of pneumonia in lung X-rays. This year, he has entered another competition seeking a system for early detection of earthquakes using audio files. Next, he wants to try his hand at a project using natural language processing.


Historic Global AI Agreement Achieved by OECD

#artificialintelligence

Today global history was made, as the first intergovernmental standard on artificial intelligence (AI) was adopted by the OECD--a geopolitical milestone achievement. There is a worldwide investment rush underway in artificial intelligence (AI) technology. Both public and private investment funding are pouring into AI, as nations and corporations seek to gain economic benefits and competitive advantages through automation. IDC estimates the global spending on cognitive and AI systems to reach $57.6 billion by 2021. Last year the UK government announced plans to invest £300 million in AI.
