A Brief Overview of Machine Learning


As we randomly search terms on the internet, we often encounter "machine learning" and "deep learning" and how they are revolutionizing the way in which we live our lives. At present, machine learning is almost used everywhere from self-driving cars, email spam detection, recommender systems that we see in Netflix and Amazon, credit card fraud detection used by banks and so on. The list goes on and on with potential new applications being created. Therefore, it is very important to stay updated with the latest trends and understand what machine learning actually is and get a good broader understanding of some of the types of machine learning. In this article, I would explain machine learning and the different categories of machine learning.

Top 100 Artificial Intelligence Companies 2020


As artificial intelligence has become a growing force in business, today's top AI companies are leaders in this emerging technology. Often leveraging cloud computing, AI companies mix and match myriad technologies. Foremost among these is machine learning, but today's AI leading firms tech ranging from predictive analytics to business intelligence to data warehouse tools to deep learning. Entire industries are being reshaped by AI. RPA companies have completely shifted their platforms. AI in healthcare is changing patient care in numerous – and major – ways. AI companies are attracting massive investment from venture capitalist firms and giant firms like Microsoft and Google. Academic AI research is growing, as are AI job openings across a multitude of industries. All of this is documented in the AI Index, produced by Stanford University's Human-Centered AI Institute. Consulting giant Accenture believes AI has the potential to boost rates of profitability by an average of 38 percentage points and could lead to an economic boost of $14 trillion in additional gross value added (GVA) by 2035. In truth, artificial intelligence holds not just possibilities, but a plethora of risks. "It will have a huge economic impact but also change society, and it's hard to make strong predictions, but clearly job markets will be affected," said Yoshua Bengio, a professor at the University of Montreal, and head of the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms. To keep up with the AI market, we have updated our list of top AI companies playing a key role in shaping the future of AI. We feature artificial intelligence companies that are commercially successful as well as those that have invested significantly in artificial intelligence. AI companies in the years ahead are forecast to see exponential growth in deep learning, machine learning and natural language processing.

Considering fraud-fighting with machine learning and artificial intelligence?


Not really, but ML and AI have been around longer than you think. Any look back at analytics in 2017 makes it clear that machine learning and artificial intelligence appear to be the'next big things' that can solve just about any problem, from writing new hit songs to curing disease. Not one to buy into the hype, I became curious as to why these topics have become the new darlings of the analytics world. Perhaps it's because nowadays everything has analytics, from niche solutions to management consultants and cloud service providers, analytics seem to be available everywhere in everything. What isn't so obvious, however, is how not new these types of analytics actually are.
