Udacity's Next Generation Of Machine Learning And Data Science Courses: An Early Review


I like to keep regular tabs on the state of data science education in America. As one of the hottest fields in the economy, I find that the quality of data science courses is a leading indicator of the state of online education innovation. So, when I see significant new develops in online education technology, I'll dedicate some time to taking the course (and, selfishly, I like to learn new data skills). One website that I've used before, Udacity, recently launched several new courses on artificial intelligence, machine learning and statistics. I've had mixed experiences with Udacity in the past.

#MachineLearning Can Help Ensure #Cybersecurity - The Telecom TIMES


The world has witnessed some serious data breach issues and the cybersecurity has been in question multiple times during the last few years. As per a report by Cisco, it's harder for the professionals to detect cyber threats due to the huge volume of malicious as well as legitimate encrypted web traffic. Therefore, machine learning is now being proposed to be used for cybersecurity. Some people think that machine learning is similar to artificial intelligence that is able to understand language and solve problems. Rather, machine learning is a part of artificial intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence In Nigeria Is An Infant Space With Huge Potential


In Nigeria (and Africa), the proliferation of artificial intelligence is very much still in its infancy thanks to several problems ranging from a lack of adequate infrastructure to cultural and socio-economic barriers to adoption. But that doesn't mean Africa is taking a backseat and'unlooking'. As far back as 2008, South African company BrandsEye was already using a proprietary mix of search algorithms, crowdsourcing and machine learning to mine online conversations for sentiment and provide that data to enterprise customers. Also, Egyptian startup Affectiva, launched in 2009 by Rana El Kaliouby, uses emotion recognition to detect moods and make decisions based on facial expressions and has raised $34 million in venture capital till date. In Nigeria, the space is heating up, slowly but surely.

Facebook wants to use AI to speed up MRI scans


Facebook's AI researchers are working with New York University to make magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) up to 10 times faster. The goal: Through a project called fastMRI, Facebook's team will develop algorithms capable of filling in the gaps in low-resolution MRI scan, effectively turning them into higher-res ones. This could be important because currently it can take an hour or more to produce a good MRI scan. That is a long time to lie motionless inside an MRI machine, especially for children or patients who are already unwell. The hope is to cut the time down to a few minutes.

AI for cybersecurity: Friend or foe? - TechHQ


Artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as one of the key technologies in today's digital age, revolutionizing many industries, from customer service to autonomous vehicles. The technology is also becoming a key weapon in the fight against cybercriminals. The rise of data breaches has become a critical and concerning issue. In recent years we have seen a tsunami of cyber attacks around the globe, inflicting great costs to both businesses and customers. According to a report titled "Economic Impact of Cybercrime – No Slowing Down," by McAfee and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), cybercrime cost the world between US$445 and US$608 billion in 2017.

Elon Musk Artificial Intelligence Destroys Champion Gamer - Supply Chain Today


"I do think there is a lot of potential if you have a compelling product and people are willing to pay a premium for that. I think that is what Apple has shown. You can buy a much cheaper cell phone or laptop, but Apple's product is so much better than the alternative, and people are willing to pay that premium." "The first step is to establish that something is possible; then probability will occur." "Don't delude yourself into thinking something's working when it's not, or you're gonna get fixated on a bad solution."

Al Qaeda bomb maker killed in Yemen drone strike last year, US official confirms

FOX News

Ibrahim al-Asiri is seen in these images supplied to Yemeni police as part of a terror suspect handbook. A top Al Qaeda bomb maker who masterminded a plot to bring down an airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009 was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen last year, a senior U.S. official told Fox News Monday. The Associated Press previously reported that Ibrahim al-Asiri was dead, citing a tribal leader and an Al Qaeda-linked source who said that he was killed in the governate of Marib in eastern Yemen. The tribal leader said that al-Asiri was struck by the drone, along with two or four of his associates, as he stood beside his car. Al Qaeda itself has remained silent about its top bomb maker.

Are you average? If not, algorithms might 'screw' you


Are you average in every way, or do you sometimes stand out from the crowd? Your answer might have big implications for how you're treated by the algorithms that governments and corporations are deploying to make important decisions affecting your life. "What algorithms?" you might ask. The ones that decide whether you get hired or fired, whether you're targeted for debt recovery and what news you see, for starters. Automated decisions made using statistical processes "will screw [some] people by default, because that's how statistics works," said Dr Julia Powles, an Australian lawyer currently based at New York University's Information Law Institute.
