Building an AI-powered PDF Search Engine with Python: Part 1


With neural search seeing rapid adoption, more people are looking at using it for indexing and searching through their unstructured data. I know several folks already building PDF search engines powered by AI, so I figured I'd give it a stab too. How hard could it possibly be? This is just a rough and ready roadmap -- so stay tuned to see how things really pan out. If you want to follow along at home (and maybe fix a few of my bugs!), check the repo: I want to build a search engine for a dataset of arbitrary PDFs.

Google claims its text-to-image AI delivers 'unprecedented photorealism'


Google has shown off an artificial intelligence system that can create images based on text input. The idea is that users can enter any descriptive text and the AI will turn that into an image. The company says the Imagen diffusion model, created by the Brain Team at Google Research, offers "an unprecedented degree of photorealism and a deep level of language understanding." This isn't the first time we've seen AI models like this. OpenAI's DALL-E (and its successor) generated headlines as well as images because of how adeptly it can turn text into visuals.

Gartner identifies 3 tech trends gaining traction in banking, investment services


Generative artificial intelligence (AI), autonomic systems and privacy-enhancing computation are three technology trends gaining traction in banking and investment services in 2022, according to Gartner, Inc. These trends will continue to grow over the next two to three years, contributing to growth and transformation of financial services organizations, it said in a statement. "While growth is the top priority, the need to manage risk, optimize costs and increase efficiency also requires new technology innovations," said Moutusi Sau, VP Analyst at Gartner. "Generative AI enables bank CIOs to offer technology solutions to the business in pursuit of revenue growth, while autonomic systems and privacy-enhancing computation are long-term solutions that provide new options for business transformation in financial services." IT spending by banking and investment services firms is forecast to grow 6.1 percent in 2022 to $623 billion worldwide.

Google Translate Provides Assist for Extra Indian Languages - Channel969

Every business must be centered around customer engagement. Customer satisfaction is the number one priority of any business. This includes answering all queries from potential customers and converting leads into business opportunities. Chatbots with AI make customer engagement much easier by answering customers' queries 24 hours a day. This makes the entire process more efficient.

Artificial Intelligence-The Future


Over the years technology has been growing fast. It is constantly being developed and improved daily. Humans are changing their ways of thinking and are making their lives easier by doing advancements in technology. Nowadays technology has become one's necessity. Almost everyone in the world is now in tech.

Specialization is key in an exploding AI chatbot market


We are excited to bring Transform 2022 back in-person July 19 and virtually July 20 - 28. Join AI and data leaders for insightful talks and exciting networking opportunities. Amid an exploding market for AI chatbots, companies that target their virtual assistants to specialized enterprise sectors may get a firmer foothold than general chatbots, according to Gartner analysts. That's not news to Zowie, which claims to be the only AI-powered chatbot technology specifically built for ecommerce companies that use customer support to drive sales – no small feat in an industry in which customer service teams answer tens of thousands of repetitive questions daily. Today, the company announced it has secured $14 million in series A funding led by Tiger Global Management, bringing its total to $20 million. Chatbots -- sometimes referred to as virtual assistants -- are built on conversational AI platforms (CAIP) that combine speech-based technology, natural language processing and machine learning tools to develop applications for use across many verticals.

On Natural Language Processing


Robots being able to understand and react to language is a prerequisite for them to be able to interact with us. Therefore, it is a very active topic of research with newer, better and mostly bigger neural networks coming out on a very regular basis. It is extremely difficult to keep up with the state-of-the-art. Especially for people new to the topic, it can be very cumbersome to start off. Having recently gotten into Natural Language Processing (NLP), I want to give an overview of the basics of NLP for the interested reader.
