AWS for Machine Learning -- Part 1


Before the concept of cloud computing came into the picture back then even if a website needs to be hosted companies had to buy huge servers and maintain them. It was a huge cost and inefficient workforce diversion for the companies which wanted to focus on the actual task at hand rather than the maintaining of these servers. Some other companies saw this as an opportunity which went ahead and bought these huge servers and had a huge collection of servers and rented them out to other companies. It is a win-win for everyone since it is cheaper and easier for the companies that wanted to focus on their application/product rather than maintaining these servers. We all use electricity, how do we pay for this we pay according to the number of units used.

The network was obtained from the NodeXL Graph Server on Monday, 26 October 2020 at 12:02 UTC. The requested start date was Monday, 26 October 2020 at 00:01 UTC and the maximum number of days (going backward) was 14. The maximum number of tweets collected was 7,500. The tweets in the network were tweeted over the 3-day, 9-hour, 0-minute period from Thursday, 22 October 2020 at 14:58 UTC to Sunday, 25 October 2020 at 23:58 UTC.

Top 8 Technology Trends for 2020


Technology is now evolving at such a rapid pace that annual predictions of trends can seem out-of-date before they even go live as a published blog post or article. As technology evolves, it enables even faster change and progress, causing an acceleration of the rate of change, until eventually, it will become exponential. Technology-based careers don't change at the same speed, but they do evolve, and the savvy IT professional recognizes that his or her role will not stay the same. And an IT worker of the 21st century will constantly be learning (out of necessity if not desire). What does this mean for you?

A Survey on Edge Intelligence Artificial Intelligence

Edge intelligence refers to a set of connected systems and devices for data collection, caching, processing, and analysis in locations close to where data is captured based on artificial intelligence. The aim of edge intelligence is to enhance the quality and speed of data processing and protect the privacy and security of the data. Although recently emerged, spanning the period from 2011 to now, this field of research has shown explosive growth over the past five years. In this paper, we present a thorough and comprehensive survey on the literature surrounding edge intelligence. We first identify four fundamental components of edge intelligence, namely edge caching, edge training, edge inference, and edge offloading, based on theoretical and practical results pertaining to proposed and deployed systems. We then aim for a systematic classification of the state of the solutions by examining research results and observations for each of the four components and present a taxonomy that includes practical problems, adopted techniques, and application goals. For each category, we elaborate, compare and analyse the literature from the perspectives of adopted techniques, objectives, performance, advantages and drawbacks, etc. This survey article provides a comprehensive introduction to edge intelligence and its application areas. In addition, we summarise the development of the emerging research field and the current state-of-the-art and discuss the important open issues and possible theoretical and technical solutions.

Document Understanding AI on Google Cloud (Cloud Next '19)


All industries face similar challenges as they seek to extract information from forms, documents, and visual artifacts - and most agree that is costly, time consuming and prone to errors with manual data entry. In this session, you will learn how to use machine learning on a scalable cloud-based platform to efficiently analyze documents - and use the knowledge hiding within - to improve decision-making at your company. Iron Mountain will show how they have been able to ingest nearly every type of imaged data from a wide variety of origins, both on-premise and in the cloud, to capture, process, analyze and then store data integrated into a complete visual search interface to enable their customers to unlock insights from their documents.

SAPPHIRE NOW: Technology and Innovation with Purpose


SAPPHIRE NOW took place on June 5-7 in Orlando with impressive numbers: more than 21,000 attendees from 102 different countries and 1,275 lectures, which was the SAP's main global event at the year. It was 3 days of much learning, where I had an opportunity to attend lectures, several demonstrations of products and applications, and meet interesting people. At the opening keynote of the event, called "The Next Move", SAP CEO Bill McDermott made the main announcements: the launch of SAP C/4 Hana and the SAP HANA Data Management Suite, the importance of SAP Leonardo, and also defined and listed what he considered the 10 main characteristics of an intelligent enterprise. McDermott commented on the importance of artificial intelligence to drive economic growth through the use of machines and the judgment of humans. "Great moments are born from great opportunities."

Top Challenges Monitoring Applications Across Multiple Cloud Providers


If monitoring and managing your IT infrastructure and applications across multiple cloud providers (and on-premises) is a big concern for you, you aren't alone. Industry analysts say most IT shops don't trust their existing tools. The reasons include reports are out of date or not all the right data is included. It used to be a big job to set up comprehensive monitoring, and as long as things didn't change, it was effective. The problem is the pace of change has changed by 20 or even 200 times in the last 5 or 10 years, making old-style monitoring ineffective.
