Data Science: Overviews


Google's Vision for Mainstreaming Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

Here at The Next Platform, we've touched on the convergence of machine learning, HPC, and enterprise requirements looking at ways that vendors are trying to reduce the barriers to enable enterprises to leverage AI and machine learning to better address the rapid changes brought about by such emerging trends as the cloud, edge computing and mobility. At the SC17 show in November 2017, Dell EMC unveiled efforts underway to bring AI, machine learning and deep learning into the mainstream, similar to how the company and other vendors in recent years have been working to make it easier for enterprises to adopt HPC techniques for their environments. For Dell EMC, that means in part doing so through bundled, engineered systems. IBM has strategies underway, including through the integration of its PowerAI deep learning enterprise software with its Data Science Experience. Both offerings are aimed at making it easier for enterprises to embrace advance AI technologies and for developers and data scientists to develop and train machine learning models.


A Framework for Approaching Textual Data Science Tasks

@machinelearnbot

There's an awful lot of text data available today, and enormous amounts of it are being created on a daily basis, ranging from structured to semi-structured to fully unstructured. What can we do with it? Well, quite a bit, actually; it depends on what your objectives are, but there are 2 intricately related yet differentiated umbrellas of tasks which can be exploited in order to leverage the availability of all of this data. NLP is a major aspect of computational linguistics, and also falls within the realms of computer science and artificial intelligence. Text mining exists in a similar realm as NLP, in that it is concerned with identifying interesting, non-trivial patterns in textual data.

Data Can Lie–Here's A Guide To Calling Out B.S.

@machinelearnbot

According to the University of Washington professors Carl T. Bergstrom and Jevin West, it's time someone did something about it. It's a free structured course of readings and case studies aimed at giving students (and anyone who might be interested) the tools to look critically at scientific claims driven by data and machine learning. Over the past six months, the two scientists created the syllabus and published it online in the hopes that the UW administration would take notice and turn it into a real class (it's currently winding its way through the approval process, and might be offered as soon as the spring). The two have been frustrated with the way statistical findings are treated in the media and in the classroom for years. West, a professor in the Information School and the director of UW's Data Lab, believes that thanks to the emergence of big data and the increasing availability of tools that help more people work with it, the amount of bullshit appears to have increased; with so much data out there, there is simply more potential for data scientists and designers to shape it to fit their own conclusions–or even intentionally mislead their audience.


Global Bigdata Conference

#artificialintelligence

In recent years, many tech giants (Google, Microsoft Azure, IBM) invested heavily in the general-use of Machine Learning and Deep Learning. In 2018, more SME businesses will learn how to use their solutions and full service platforms. They have managed to optimize Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing in such a way that it will most likely outperform any other (smaller) player in this field. With help of API's they will take over (market share up to 85%) the general-use machine learning industry in 2018. In 2017 there has been an exponential use of so called'click – drag and drop' tools.


Tech Trends 2018: An Overview

@machinelearnbot

Rather than exploring emerging technology domains in isolation, CIOs can orchestrate the convergence of powerful new capabilities to uncover business opportunities and achieve strategic and operational goals. "An orchestra full of stars," the renowned German conductor Kurt Masur said, "can be a disaster." It turns out the same can be true of an enterprise full of emerging technology capabilities developed and pursued independently. In our ninth annual Tech Trends report, "The Symphonic Enterprise," we look at how strategy, technology, and operations trends can work together in harmony across domains and boundaries in the coming year. Without a doubt, there is more than one next big thing in enterprise technology.

Monetizing the Internet of Things (IoT) @ThingsExpo #AI #IoT #M2M #BigData

@machinelearnbot

"Why incur the expense of generating and collecting all of this IoT data if you're not going to monetize it?" Organizations are racing to embrace the Internet of Things (IoT) as the pundits create "visions of sugar-plums dancing in their heads." McKinsey Global Institute released their study "The Internet of Things: Mapping the Value beyond the Hype" in June 2015 that highlighted the staggering financial value that IoT could create! The folks at Wikibon provided a perspective on the sources of "IoT monetization" in their recent research titled "Harvesting Value at the Edge" written by the always delightful and provocative Neil Raden. IoT, though a useful application of available technology, and well-defined at the hardware and network levels, the heart of IoT, that part that yields the real value, is edge analytics.
