How Artificial Intelligence Is Helping To Make Better Content


Artificial intelligence has been around for decades, but only recently has the technology gotten to the point where you can begin to reap its benefits of it in your everyday life. This includes your personal and business life as well. Businesses have been taking advantage of this technology's ability to create new strategies and content on their own, without any human input whatsoever, while consumers are now able to see AI's influence on popular applications such as Siri and Amazon's Alexa. With most content creators knowing everything there is to know about their subject, at least on a basic level, it can be difficult for them to distinguish themselves from others in their field. That is where artificial intelligence comes in.

How to Test a Recommender System -


Recommender systems fundamentally address the question – What do people want? Although it is an extensive question, in the context of a consumer application like e-commerce, the answer could be to serve the best products in terms of price and quality for a consumer. For a news aggregator website, it could be to show reliable and relevant content. In a case where a user would have to look through thousands or millions of items to find what they are looking for, a recommendation engine is indispensable. The engine filters over 3,000 titles at a time using 1,300 recommendation clusters based on user preferences. It is so accurate that personalised recommendations from the engine drive 80% of Netflix viewer activity. However, building and evaluating a recommender system is very different compared to a single ML model regarding design decisions, engineering, and metrics. In this article, we will focus on testing a recommendation system. The second and third require a lot of user-item interaction data. If that is not available, one might start with the first type of recommender system.

Alexa, why have you charged me £2 to say the Hail Mary?

The Guardian

When my 87-year-old mother, Patricia Collinson, was given an Alexa speaker by my sister, she was delighted to find she could ask it to say the Hail Mary. Every morning for a week the devout Catholic asked Alexa to recite the prayer. What she was less delighted to learn was that she had unwittingly ordered a premium subscription payable through Amazon to a private company called Catholic Prayers. Patricia, a retired district nurse in Hastings, does not own a computer, and does not know how to use one. She had signed up by voice command, without being presented with the kind of outline or terms and conditions that now comes as standard when you pay for things online.

How to Choose a Major for Artificial Intelligence: Degree Research Guide


Artificial intelligence (AI) offers plenty of opportunities in the job market, as many AI companies try to solve real-world problems through this field of practice. AI's growth also comes with a wide range of options available to find the best majors for artificial intelligence. When it comes to what degree in artificial intelligence should you pursue, keep reading to learn how to choose a major for artificial intelligence and know the possible AI career paths that are open to you after graduating. A career in artificial intelligence provides tech professionals with competitive pay, job security, and continuous learning and development. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that the average annual salary for computer and AI professionals is $126,830.

Machine learning explores materials science questions and solves difficult search problems


Using computing resources at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), researchers at Argonne National Laboratory have succeeded in exploring important materials science questions and demonstrated progress using machine learning to solve difficult search problems. By adapting a machine-learning algorithm from board games such as AlphaGo, the researchers developed force fields for nanoclusters of 54 elements across the periodic table, a dramatic leap toward understanding their unique properties and proof of concept for their search method. The team published its results in Nature Communications in January. Depending on their scale--bulk systems of 100 nanometers versus nanoclusters of less than 100 nanometers--materials can display dramatically different properties, including optical and magnetic properties, discrete energy levels, and enhanced photoluminescence. These properties may lend themselves to new scientific and industry applications, and scientists can learn about them by developing force fields--computational models that estimate the potential energies between atoms in a molecule and between molecules--for each element or compound.

AI for business users: a glossary


When you work with IT staff and data scientists, they're going to use acronyms that you might not be familiar with. It's important to know some of the basic terms and acronyms so you can communicate. Business users should make themselves familiar with these common AI terms to communicate well with the data teams. Artificial intelligence is a form of intelligence demonstrated by a computer. A computer can be programmed with logic and business rules that will enable it to "reason" through situations and come up with a conclusion.

Contentgine Employs Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning


Contentgine, the world leader in content-based marketing, today released its latest "Top 5" research ranking the most popular artificial intelligence (AI) content consumed by B2B decision makers and analyzed by its Content Indication Platform (CIP). To determine the category leaders, Contentgine's CIP employed machine learning and AI to examine content consumption across more than 3000 AI case studies, research papers, and eBooks syndicated from the world's largest B2B library. "AI software is not only a category in and of itself, but it is also a core component of other categories," said "Top 5 in 15" Series Host Robert Rose, best-selling author and chief strategy advisor for the Content Marketing Institute. "We're talking about the core component of AI software that may or may not be embedded into other solutions to achieve advanced automation, decision insights, predictive measurement, targeting, personalization, content management, and conversational interfaces. Given the vast interest in this topic today, it's wonderful to see so many well performing assets available to decision makers."
