Soffos – AI-powered conversational corporate L&D platform

#artificialintelligence

The intricate detail is extremely complex and a patentable secret, but it's all about the use of algorithms that combine computational linguistics, contextual memory, deep learning. The AI parses words as input from voice or text from resources, so that it'understands' the relationship between words (as concepts or things) not just by simple keyword association (e.g. car transport) but by well-defined meta-labels, which refer to relationships between language, concepts, objects and questions from an infinite number of possible (and impossible) relationships. A limited set of relation types are used, using global identifiers with unambiguous denotations. This is combined with semantic'Extraction Transformation and Load' (ETL) processes from structured databases, forming strong associations and disassociations during the AI's training. An example of a Knowledge Graph (KG) to draw upon vast amounts of varied information might be a recommendation system for TV shows, movies, songs and albums from an online entertainment provider, to help find relationships between actors, artistes, titles and series.


Support Vector Machines in Python

#artificialintelligence

Please consider watching this video if any section of this article is unclear. How to set up your programming environment can be found at the start of: Episode 4.3 We can now use the support vector machine to classify apples and oranges given the fruit's weight and size. For example -- let's say we recorded a fruit to have a weight of 70 grams and size of 4.6cm. We obtain a prediction of this fruit being an orange. Looking at the graph in the scatterplot above we note the recording of 70 grams and size of 4.6cm lies below the hyperplane, hence an orange is predicted.


How to predict customer churn in a company ? - Soriba Diaby

#artificialintelligence

Banks, telephone service companies, Internet service providers, pay TV companies, insurance firms, and alarm monitoring services, often use customer attrition analysis and customer attrition rates as one of their key business metrics (along with cash flow, EBITDA, etc.) because the cost of retaining an existing customer is far less than acquiring a new one (Wikipedia). According to this article, the probability of selling to a new customer is 60-70%, while the probability of selling to a new prospect is 5-20%. So knowing if a customer is at risk of leaving is one of the most important tasks a company has to perform in order to keep growing its business. The data can be found here on kaggle public datasets. We will predict if a customer will churn based on his informations. There are 7043 customers and 20 features.


HBO Max mocked and consoled after sending odd 'integration test' email – as it blames message on intern

The Independent - Tech

HBO Max has been mocked and consoled after sending out an unusual email to its customers. The message – apparently sent to a significant numbers of the service's subscribers – was not advertising a new show or feature, but rather included only a cryptic message that appeared to have been sent out by mistake. "This template is used by integration tests only." As recipients opened the email, and quickly realised that it had been sent by mistake, the reaction ranged from mockery to sympathy for the person who had clearly sent what was an internal test email out to potentially millions of subscribers.

How artificial intelligence has (and will) revolutionise video marketing

#artificialintelligence

We know full well that AI is one of those acronyms that gets chucked around so often that it begins to lose some of its wonders. But that belies its power and significance because when it comes to the value added to video marketing by both artificial intelligence and its subset machine learning (ML), it really is worth your undivided attention. "Marketers, through AI technologies, have been both challenged and empowered," sums up Rob Freedman, VP of marketing at Fourlane. "We have greater access to data and can custom tailor our video content to fit the exact demographic of our ideal customer persona. This is an extremely powerful way to get our message in front of the right people, at the ideal time."


Algorithms and art: Researchers explore impact of AI on music and culture

#artificialintelligence

Global access to art, culture, and entertainment products – music, movies, books, and more – has undergone fundamental changes over the past 20 years in light of groundbreaking developments in artificial intelligence. For example, users of streaming services like Netflix and Spotify have data collected and analyzed by algorithms to determine their streaming habits – resulting in recommendations that cater to their tastes. But this is only one of the many ways in which AI tools are transforming the arts and culture industries. AI is also being used in the production of music and other art, with algorithms generating photos or writing songs on their own. Warner Music even "signed" an algorithm to a record deal in 2019.

Love, Death & Robots Is Growing Up

WIRED

Netflix recently released Season 2 of Love, Death & Robots, an anthology show that adapts short stories into animated films. Science fiction author Zach Chapman thinks the new season is a big improvement over Season 1, with fewer episodes that feel silly or underdeveloped. "I do think that these stories are way more consistent," Chapman says in Episode 469 of the Geek's Guide to the Galaxy podcast. "I wouldn't say that there's an episode that I didn't like in this season, whereas there were quite a few that I didn't like in Season 1." Geek's Guide to the Galaxy host David Barr Kirtley was pleased to see the show move in a more serious direction, after a first season that seemed primarily aimed at teenage boys. "This show started as an attempt to reboot Heavy Metal, so it did have that kind of aesthetic," he says.
