The Future of Enterprise Billing


The connectivity benefits of 5G are expected to make businesses more competitive and give consumers access to more information faster than ever before. Connected cars, smart communities, industrial IoT, healthcare, immersive education--they all will rely on unprecedented opportunities that 5G technology will create. The enterprise market opportunity is driving many telecoms operators' strategies for, and investments in, 5G. Companies are accelerating investment in core and emerging technologies such as cloud, internet of things, robotic process automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning. IoT (Internet of Things), as an example, improving connectivity and data sharing between devices, enabling biometric based transactions; with blockchain, enabling use cases, trade transactions, remittances, payments and investments; and with deep learning and artificial intelligence, utilization of advanced algorithms for high personalization.

AI: The Challenge of Achieving the Same Results


If the power of logical reasoning is able to optimize the resources needed to reach quality AI solutions in a nonconventional way, then the AI industry should prepare for a major upcoming change. It is a change that is built on creativity; regardless of application titles or goals, no two applications will have the same results. Companies strive to transform their ideas into working plans to achieve their tactical goals. They do have highly specialized teams to make this happen, but not many companies in the AI realm have the strategic view of what may soon emerge in the industry. Having a highly specialized crew is indeed crucial to achieve tactical objectives.

How to Use NLP to Take on Wall Street


In January, 2021, retail investors - Robinhood army - came together on Reddit's Wall Street Bets group and other social media outlets to take down prominent hedge funds by causing a short squeeze and pushing up GameStop's stock price by 400% in just one week¹. This amount of volatility is not normal, the retail investors were urged on by the Reddit group to punish hedge funds that had taken an outsized short bet against GameStop. Tracking market sentiment can be a powerful tool for investors because understanding the mood of where the market is going can allow one to capitalize from the changing direction. Combining market sentiment with market fundamental will result in more sound investments. I was fascinated by the showdown between Wall Street and Reddit and inspired to understand how machine learning (ML) can be used to track market sentiment.

Why people end up mad when AI flags toxic speech - Futurity


You are free to share this article under the Attribution 4.0 International license. The main problem: There is a huge difference between evaluating more traditional AI tasks, like recognizing spoken language, and the much messier task of identifying hate speech, harassment, or misinformation--especially in today's polarized environment. "It appears as if the models are getting almost perfect scores, so some people think they can use them as a sort of black box to test for toxicity," says Mitchell Gordon, a PhD candidate in computer science at Stanford University who worked on the project. They're evaluating these models with approaches that work well when the answers are fairly clear, like recognizing whether'java' means coffee or the computer language, but these are tasks where the answers are not clear." Facebook says its artificial intelligence models identified and pulled down 27 million pieces of hate speech in the final three months of 2020.

Experience The Future Of Cinema, As Campari Creates The First Short Film With Artificial Intelligence, Inspired By The Creative Genius Of Fellini


Campari, the iconic Italian aperitif, announces the return of Campari Red Diaries with Fellini Forward; a pioneering project, in collaboration with Fellini's family and former colleagues, exploring the late Federico Fellini's creative genius using new technology and machine learning to emulate the works of one of the greatest filmmakers of all time in a new and unique short film set in Rome. A one-of-a-kind documentary following the process will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival on September 7th and North American premiere as a Partner Presentation at the 59th New York Film Festival. The documentary will then be released on a subscription video on demand (SVOD) platform in select markets, inviting consumers to explore the future of cinema and creativity. Since its creation over 160 years ago, Campari has pushed the boundaries of creativity to go beyond the norm, unlocking the passions and talents of artists across different fields in the path to creation.

Swiping right on jabs: dating app adds Covid vaccine badges in Australia

The Guardian

Single Australians looking for sex or love will soon stand out from the competition if they've been vaccinated against Covid-19. Dating app Bumble announced it will roll out a new feature this week enabling users in Australia and New Zealand to add a "vaccination badge" to their profile if they've received a Covid-19 jab. Competitor Tinder says it looks forward to "making [vaccine] badges available soon" in Australia too. A Bumble representative says it will not independently verify the vaccination status of those who claim the badge, meaning the system will rely on user honesty. The dating app says it decided to launch the feature after a recent survey revealed a "45% increase in users asking potential dates if they had the vaccine or have Covid symptoms". It's not just in Australia that dating apps are encouraging users to boast about their vaccination status.

Why brands should use AI to create more effective influencer campaigns


For a layperson, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a buzzword. Artificial intelligence is an underutilised technology that can create greater value for brands. It has the potential to answer and solve the lion's share of challenges in influencer marketing campaigns – Are we choosing the right creator? Will the creator deliver effective content? How do we scale with influencers?

Artificial Intelligence : is it Old or New ?


Machines of today are already intelligent. They can process huge amounts of information hundreds of times faster than humans can do. They execute repetitive tasks without getting tired, and they easily compute very complex mathematical equations. This is why machines can detect patterns and learn from them. They outperform humans in terms of computational capabilities, but their perceptual skills are in question.

'Gutfeld!' on CNN, Olympic Games

FOX News

'Gutfeld!' panel debates whether CNN will change their coverage This is a rush transcript from "Gutfeld!," This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated. I want to protect free speech. No, we want people to be protected from disinformation, to be protected from dying in this country, to be protected from people like Donald Trump who spread this information for -- who love to make sure that the division and the death continues. That was a rough weekend, and not just for Kat. But at least she kept her clothes on unlike our other guests, Jimmy Failla. But it was a far worse weekend for CNN. First let's go to our roly-poly guacamole gossip goalie. See how bad it got unreliable fart noises. Here's Michael Wolff delivering that smack to the hack. You know, you become part of -- one of the parts of the problem of the media. You know, you come on here and you -- and you have a, you know, a monopoly on truth. You know, you know exactly how things are supposed to be done. You know, you are why one of the reasons people can't stand the media. You should see the rest of the world, buddy. Can I hear that chuckle again? But if that was a heavyweight fight, and it is because, you know, Stelter, it would have been stopped in the first 25 seconds. It got worse, meaning better, lots better. STELTER: It's -- how -- so what should I do differently, Michael? WOLFF: You know, don't talk so much. Listen more, you know, people have genuine problems with the media. The media doesn't get the story right.
