Some Essential Hacks and Tricks for Machine Learning with Python

#artificialintelligence

It's never been easier to get started with machine learning. In addition to structured MOOCs, there is also a huge number of incredible, free resources available around the web. Familiarity and moderate expertise in at least one high-level programming language is useful for beginners in machine learning. Unless you are a Ph.D. researcher working on a purely theoretical proof of some complex algorithm, you are expected to mostly use the existing machine learning algorithms and apply them in solving novel problems. This requires you to put on a programming hat.


Tech Inclusion: 3 Questions to Scratch the Surface of Bias in AI

#artificialintelligence

According to the World Economic Forum, planet Earth is experiencing unprecedented change due to the rapid development of new technology--and the outcomes of these transitions are difficult to predict. One question that leaders are thinking about is tech inclusion--the idea that the economic benefits of tech should reach workers and end users of all walks of life. It's no secret that diversity in tech is a problem that has the potential to scale. What humankind does know is that AI is, and will become, a central part of daily life. Just 20 years ago, the concept of a smartphone and voice-assisted at-home robot would have been a figment of our imaginations.


Moveworks -- a new interaction model for enterprise workflows

#artificialintelligence

IT support has plagued enterprises for years. And for good reason: existing solutions haven't changed for almost two decades. Employees typically either send an email or navigate to an archaic web portal to file an IT ticket and endure long wait times (often days). What's interesting is that the syntax behind IT support tickets hasn't changed much over time: "I can't seem to reset my salesforce password?"; "My laptop screen got cracked"; "My email is not working."

The future of marketing ROI is lifetime value (and AI will deliver it)

#artificialintelligence

Driven by customer demand, marketers are looking beyond acquisition and vanity metrics to full-funnel marketing that tracks Lifetime Customer Value (LTV). With the help of AI, they're also freeing up time to think more strategically. Let's start with what the customer wants In the Fourth Industrial Revolution, customers are now in control. They're always connected, they have options and they can vote with their feet if they're unhappy. Salesforce's recent State of the Connected Customer research shows that 57% of customers have stopped buying from a company because a competitor provided a better experience.


How AI Can Accidentally Recreate Prejudices From the Real World

#artificialintelligence

Last year, it was revealed that Amazon's facial recognition software, 'Rekognition' matched Congresspeople's headshots with photos from inside a mugshot database. In total, 28 members of Congress were falsely identified as other people that had previously been arrested for committing criminal offenses. The false matches were disproportionate toward people of color, including six members of the Congressional Black Caucus, among these was civil rights activist Rep. John Lewis. In July of 2018, the American Civil Liberties Union conducted an independent analysis using the same default settings that Amazon's Rekognition software uses. This analysis ran a check on the whole of Congress against 25,000 publicly available arrest photographs.


Reuters provides trusted news content on AWS Data Exchange for artificial intelligence capabilities - Reuters

#artificialintelligence

Reuters, the world's largest multimedia news provider, announced today that it has joined the newly launched AWS Data Exchange to provide access to trusted news and data to Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers. Even more enterprises will now have quick access to Reuters trusted, independent and impartial news content and data, which are produced by 2,500 journalists in more than 200 locations globally, to power their artificial intelligence (AI) applications. "Reuters is constantly seeking new ways to broaden the reach of our independent, trusted and unbiased news content and data. We are excited to be among the first providers of such content in AWS Data Exchange, where our multi-language news data will be made available to a diverse range of AWS customers around the globe," said Alphonse Hardel, Global Head of Business Development and Strategy, Reuters at Thomson Reuters. "With the increasing demand across industries in using news content to train and power their mission critical AI and analytics applications on the cloud, the depth and accuracy of Reuters coverage means AWS customers are now able to seamlessly access the highest quality of data from AWS Data Exchange," added Hardel.


Cutting edge: A peek into recent developments in sci-tech

#artificialintelligence

Dr Peter B Scott-Morgan has just turned from Peter 1.0 to Peter 2.0, to use his own term, and has become the world's first full Cyborg. He's real and you can see his posts on Twitter. Dr Morgan is a scientists who has a muscle wasting disease that has now taken its toll on his body. In other words, he is terminally ill with a motor neurone disease. As the muscles in his body lose their power completely, only his brain will be alive.


The ONNX format becomes the newest Linux Foundation project – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

The Linux Foundation today announced that ONNX, the open format that makes machine learning models more portable, is now a graduate-level project inside of the organization's AI Foundation. ONNX was originally developed and open-sourced by Microsoft and Facebook in 2017 and has since become somewhat of a standard, with companies ranging from AWS to AMD, ARM, Baudi, HPE, IBM, Nvidia and Qualcomm supporting it. In total, more than 30 companies now contribute to the ONNX code base. It's worth noting that only the ONNX format is included here, not the ONNX runtime, which Microsoft open-sourced a year ago. The runtime is an inference engine for models in the ONNX format and I wouldn't be surprised if, at some point, Microsoft put that under the guidance of a foundation, too… but for now, that's not the case.
