Comparing Machine Learning as a Service: Amazon, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud AI, IBM Watson


For most businesses, machine learning seems close to rocket science, appearing expensive and talent demanding. And, if you're aiming at building another Netflix recommendation system, it really is. But the trend of making everything-as-a-service has affected this sophisticated sphere, too. You can jump-start an ML initiative without much investment, which would be the right move if you are new to data science and just want to grab the low hanging fruit. One of ML's most inspiring stories is the one about a Japanese farmer who decided to sort cucumbers automatically to help his parents with this painstaking operation. Unlike the stories that abound about large enterprises, the guy had neither expertise in machine learning, nor a big budget. But he did manage to get familiar with TensorFlow and employed deep learning to recognize different classes of cucumbers. By using machine learning cloud services, you can start building your first working models, yielding valuable insights from predictions with a relatively small team. We've already discussed machine learning strategy. Now let's have a look at the best machine learning platforms on the market and consider some of the infrastructural decisions to be made.

Customer Profiling and Segmentation in Python An Overview & Demo


While most marketing managers understand that all customers have different preferences, these differences still tend to raise quite a challenge when it comes time to develop new offers. Not every product or service that your company makes will be right for every customer, nor will every customer be equally responsive to each of your company's marketing campaigns. That's why when I prepare custom training plans, I usually recommend that my clients get familiar with how they can use customer profiling and segmentation to organize their customer base into different groups. Simply put, segmentation is a way of organizing your customer base into groups. For marketing purposes, these groups are formed on the basis of people having similar product or service preferences, although segments can be constructed on any variety of other factors.

FAQ on the newly established MIT Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing

MIT News

This set of FAQs offers information about the founding of the MIT Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing, announced today, and its implications for the MIT community and beyond. Q: What is MIT announcing today that's new? A: Today MIT is announcing a $1 billion commitment to address the global opportunities and challenges presented by the ubiquity of computing -- across industries and academic disciplines -- and by the rise of artificial intelligence. At the heart of this endeavor will be the new MIT Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing, made possible by a foundational $350 million gift from Stephen Schwarzman, the chairman, CEO, and co-founder of Blackstone, a leading global asset manager. An additional $300 million has been secured for the College through other fundraising.

Frequently Asked Questions about Machine Learning


A: Our machine learning process is based on academic research and has been rigorously tested. Working with AMS as an external third party, we can handle the full end-to-end research process. We can identify the sites to mine based on our experience, mine the data, clean the data to prepare it for the machine, train the dataset to optimize the power of machine learning, and run the machine. Once the machine has been run, we take the output and our trained analysts convert it into detailed insights. We also present the findings in a rich qualitative report with quotations that bring the insights to life.

A Primer in Adversarial Machine Learning – The Next Advance in AI – Data Science Central


Summary: What comes next after Deep Learning? How do we get to Artificial General Intelligence? Adversarial Machine Learning is an emerging space that points to that direction and shows that AGI is closer than we think. Deep Learning, Convolutional Neural Nets (CNNs) have given us dramatic improvements in image, speech, and text recognition over the last two years. They suffer from the flaw however that they can be easily fooled by the introduction of even small amounts of noise, random or intentional.

An Overview of Artificial Intelligence Ethics and Regulations


In the past 18 months, we have seen a huge rise in the interest of AI development and activation. Countries are developing national strategies, and companies are positioning themselves for the fourth industrial revolution. With this pervasive push of AI, comes also an increased awareness that AIs should act in the interest of a human - and this is not as trivial as one might think. This article provides an overview of several key initiatives that propose ways on approaching AI ethics, regulation and sustainability. As this is a fast evolving field, I aim to update this article regularly.

Deep Learning in Neuroradiology


SUMMARY: Deep learning is a form of machine learning using a convolutional neural network architecture that shows tremendous promise for imaging applications. It is increasingly being adapted from its original demonstration in computer vision applications to medical imaging. Because of the high volume and wealth of multimodal imaging information acquired in typical studies, neuroradiology is poised to be an early adopter of deep learning. Compelling deep learning research applications have been demonstrated, and their use is likely to grow rapidly. This review article describes the reasons, outlines the basic methods used to train and test deep learning models, and presents a brief overview of current and potential clinical applications with an emphasis on how they are likely to change future neuroradiology practice. Facility with these methods among neuroimaging researchers and clinicians will be important to channel and harness the vast potential of this new method. Deep learning is a form of artificial intelligence, roughly modeled on the structure of neurons in the brain, which has shown tremendous promise in solving many problems in computer vision, natural language processing, and robotics.1 It has recently become the dominant form of machine learning, due to a convergence of theoretic advances, openly available computer software, and hardware with sufficient computational power. The current excitement in the field of deep learning stems from new data suggesting its excellent performance in a wide variety of tasks. One benchmark of machine learning performance is the ImageNet Challenge. In this annual competition, teams compete to classify millions of images into discrete categories (tens of different kinds of dogs, fish, cars, and so forth).

42 Cutting Edge Facts About the Past, Present and Future of Artificial Intelligence


People have been dreaming about Artificial Intelligence for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Well, it's starting to feel like the future is actually here, and AI can be seen almost everyone nowadays. So how should you feel about it? Here are 42 facts about the past, present and future of artificial intelligence to help you decide for yourself. In Ancient Greek mythology, the blacksmith god Hephaestus was believed to have built what were essentially robots. His "automatons," as they were called, were crafted from metal and designed to perform different tasks for him or other gods.
