Amazon's Alexa being tested to replicate voice of dead relatives


Amazon's Alexa might soon replicate the voice of family members - even if they're dead. The capability, unveiled at Amazon's Re:Mars conference in Las Vegas, is in development and would allow the virtual assistant to mimic the voice of a specific person based on a less than a minute of provided recording. Rohit Prasad, senior vice president and head scientist for Alexa, said at the event Wednesday that the desire behind the feature was to build greater trust in the interactions users have with Alexa by putting more "human attributes of empathy and affect." "These attributes have become even more important during the ongoing pandemic when so many of us have lost ones that we love," Prasad said. "While AI can't eliminate that pain of loss, it can definitely make their memories last."

AIOps and IoT


AIOps, or artificial intelligence for IT operations, is critical for optimizing IT operations. AIOps combines big data and machine learning to automate IT operations processes, according to Gartner. The most common application of AIOps is the automation of big data management. Event correlation and analysis, performance analysis, anomaly detection, causality determination, and IT service management are some of the other use cases. Smart, connected devices with sensors that generate large amounts of operational data in real time are referred to as IoT.

I recently applied for jobs in the Data Science space, and while the titles and descriptions were different, the skillsets and responsibilities were the same.

IBM Data Engineering


This Professional Certificate is for anyone who wants to develop job-ready skills, tools, and a portfolio for an entry-level data engineer position. Throughout the self-paced online courses, you will immerse yourself in the role of a data engineer and acquire the essential skills you need to work with a range of tools and databases to design, deploy, and manage structured and unstructured data. By the end of this Professional Certificate, you will be able to explain and perform the key tasks required in a data engineering role. You will use the Python programming language and Linux/UNIX shell scripts to extract, transform and load (ETL) data. You will work with Relational Databases (RDBMS) and query data using SQL statements.

Why Data Science Is Becoming A Necessity? - Articles Work


As we all are aware Data Science is becoming the domain of study which uses scientific techniques for data extraction. Moreover, the concept gets related to learning a group of techniques. Various important methodologies come out in the domain of data science. Data Science is the hottest topic that is gaining out of its depth among the skilled professionals who emphasize the extraction of data. Moreover, a big amount of data is an asset for any organization. Many people get confused about What is Data Science?

Bias in AI and Machine Learning: Sources and Solutions


"Bias in AI" has long been a critical area of research and concern in machine learning circles and has grown in awareness among general consumer audiences over the past couple of years as knowledge of AI has grown. It's a term that describes situations where ML-based data analytics systems show Bias against certain groups of people. These biases usually reflect widespread societal biases about race, gender, biological sex, age, and culture. There are two types of bias in AI. One is algorithmic AI bias or "data bias," where algorithms are trained using biased data.

The Way Forward: Graph Computing Conquers Life Sciences, AI, and ML


Graph computing is designed to handle the scalable analytics, AI, and data problems of our day. In this respect, Katana's showing at TDC's molecular property prediction competition offers undeniable proof of graph's utility. The key takeaway, of course, is that this life sciences application is just an indicator of what graph can do in any other vertical, too. It can deliver the same sort of innovative solutions by employing all elements of graph computing, which include graph query, graph mining, graph analytics, and graph AI. Its performance at TDC's international event, therefore, is simply a precursor to a new, better era of computing: graph computing.

Research confirms AI adoption growing but governance is lagging


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. While it's true that the adoption of artificial intelligence in various applications is yielding tangible results for all kinds of enterprises, there is a downside: AI's full potential isn't being realized because of a lack of human expertise to optimize it for business purposes. A new global research project conducted by Juniper Networks and Wakefield Research and released June 15 shows an increase in AI adoption during the last 12 months, but a shortage of human talent is holding a great deal of good implementation back. Governance policies involving AI continue to lack maturity, the report said, and this is also a stumbling block. Both of these factors are needed to responsibly manage AI's growth when considering privacy issues, regulation compliance, hacking and AI terrorism, the survey said.
