Data Science


One key to hiring your next data scientist

#artificialintelligence

For years we've been told that data science is the future; that artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) will enable us to automate everything. And yet most (85%) data science projects fail, according to a 2019 report, though such scare statistics might not reflect reality. Still, there are plenty of reasons why a data science project might not work as advertised, but one reason stands out: Talent. Or, rather, the lack thereof, as Gartner has highlighted. If you're thinking, "Well, I'll just send my recruiters to LinkedIn to scour for talent," I have news for you: It's not going to work.

Using artificial intelligence for forensic probe

#artificialintelligence

By Nikhil Bedi & Vivek Bhamodkar With evolving business models, increased use of tech and a changing regulatory landscape, fraud management is fraught with newer and more complex challenges. These are further exacerbated during cross-border investigations, where varied levels of standardisation, languages, local laws and regulations, along with specific cultural attributes, bring additional complexities--mandating an investigation methodology standardisation and requiring tools for quick insights. Emerging technology and artificial intelligence (AI) can help make investigations efficient, generate insights, and/or aid reviews. Optimal use of AI demands the knowledge of'possibilities and limitations' of such techniques, either in the form of'special purpose software' or the ability to combine various methods. As significant a role as these tools and technologies may play in the fight against fraud, use of AI, NLP and other technologies come with their own set of challenges.


Global Big Data Conference

#artificialintelligence

A new course offered by AWS offers business leaders a foundational understanding of machine learning and its use cases without the need for a deep understanding of Python and coding. On one hand, organizations recognize the potential value of machine learning to scale operations, gain faster and deeper insights, respond to quickly changing conditions, and more. On the other hand, it's hard to get started on something that is novel to your organization. You may not have the talent in-house, and you don't have any experience. What's more, even for those organizations that have run successful pilots, many have struggled to move those pilots into production for a variety of reasons.

The Most In-Demand Skills for Data Scientists in 2021 - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

I just wanted to start off by saying that this is heavily inspired by Jeff Hale's articles that he wrote back in 2018/2019. I'm writing this simply because I wanted to get a more up-to-date analysis of what skills are in demand today, and I'm sharing this because I'm assuming that there are people out there that also want to see an updated version of the most in-demand skills for data scientists in 2021. Take what you want from this analysis -- it's obvious that the insights gathered from web scraping job postings do not offer a perfect correlation to what data science skills are actually most demanded. However, I think this gives a good indication of what general skills you should focus more on, and likewise, stray away from. With that said, I hope you enjoy this, and let's dive into it!


Quantum algorithms for data analysis

#artificialintelligence

In these lecture notes, we explore how we can leverage quantum computers and quantum algorithms for information processing. It has long been known that quantum computation can offer computational advantages with respect to classical computation, and in this place we explore more the consequences of this intuition in current domains of computer sciences. Why are we studying quantum algorithms? Studying how to use quantum mechanical systems is already fascinating in itself, but we argue that having faster algorithms it's not the only reason for studying quantum computing. Studying quantum computation might also reveal profound insights on new ways to process information.


ML Scaling Requires Upgraded Data Management Plan

#artificialintelligence

Successful data strategies are built on a foundation of meticulous data management, creating enterprise architectures that "democratize" data access and usage, yielding measurable results from machine learning platforms. The reality, according to an examination of the emerging "AI organization," is that few data-driven organizations are able to deliver on their data strategy. A survey commissioned by Databricks and conducted by MIT Technology Review Insights found that a mere 13 percent of those polled actually achieve measurable business results. MIT Technology Review Insights said it polled 351 CDOs, chief analytics officers as well as CIOs, CTOs and senior technology executives. It also interviewed several other senior technology leaders.


IBM to acquire myInvenio with an eye on AI-enabled automation

#artificialintelligence

During the coronavirus pandemic, digital transformation and automation efforts have accelerated as organizations look to streamline workflows and reduce operational costs. On Thursday, IBM announced a definitive agreement to acquire Italy-based process mining software company, myInvenio. "Digital transformation is accelerating across industries as companies face increasing challenges with managing critical IT systems and complex business applications that span the hybrid cloud landscape," said Dinesh Nirmal, general manager, IBM Automation. The move highlights IBM's investments to provide an AI-enabled automation suite "one-stop shop" for organizations, the company said, with capabilities such as robotic process automation, document processing and process mining among others. IBM said the acquisition will provide companies with "data-driven software" in areas such as sales, production and accounting and could help organizations identify processes for potential AI-enabled automation.
