If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
Edge2Learn, an e-learning company specializing in the multifamily industry, today announced the introduction of artificial intelligence to its learning platform. The AI platform provides role-playing opportunities for one-on-one instruction without a need for an in-person trainer. It is one of several cutting-edge, e-learning programs Edge2Learn offers. "The AI platform is a video-based practice training tool. It provides quick, specific feedback and an avenue to tweak sales presentations until they are perfect and ultimately result in better sales performances," said Joanna Ellis, co-founder and chief executive officer of Edge2Learn. "Several property management companies are rushing to adopt this technology, especially in the wake of COVID-19.
Hi folks, welcome back to this edition of my blog, thank you so much for your love and support, I hope you all are doing well. Today we will learn and explore Exploratory Data Analysis(EDA) used in the data science life cycle. This blog will cover topics in and around, What is EDA, the iterative cycle used for EDA, statistical tools we use for doing EDA, essential terms, what kind of questions one should ask around when he or she is dealing with this EDA process & finally we will understand variation and covariation that helps us play around EDA process. So guys, with all your enthusiasm, let us gear up and get started. It is a process that shows you or rather helps you to explore your data using visualization and transformation methodologies in a systematic way.
Pixabay – Martin Büdenbender Researchers from the Eindhoven University of Technology and the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven have developed a new algorithm for rapid screening of COVID-19. The software is intended for use in Emergency Rooms, to quickly exclude the presence of corona in incoming patients. As a result, doctors need to conduct fewer standard coronavirus tests, increasing efficiency. The quick scan for COVID-19 was developed within three months and is already in use by doctors in the Emergency Room (ER) of the Catharina Hospital.
Machine learning could be the key to preventing cyber-attacks Image credit: Nexusby / Shutterstock / PortSwigger Ltd Artificial intelligence can help internet service providers prevent DDoS attacks before they happen, say researchers. Findings from the National University of Singapore and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel, presented a new method in the peer-reviewed journal Computers & Security. The method uses machine learning to detect vulnerable smart home devices, which are an attractive target for hackers who assemble botnets to launch DDoS attacks.
For the third straight year, Deloitte surveyed executives about their companies' sentiments and practices regarding AI technologies. We were particularly interested in understanding what it will take to stay ahead of the pack as AI adoption grows--and we wanted to learn how adopters are managing risk around the technologies as AI governance, trust, and ethics become more of a boardroom issue. Get the Deloitte Insights app. Adopters continue to have confidence in AI technologies' ability to drive value and advantage. We see increasing levels of AI technology implementation and financial investment. Adopters say they are realizing competitive advantage and expect AI-powered transformation to happen for both their organization and industry. Early-mover advantage may fade soon. As adoption becomes ubiquitous, AI-powered organizations may have to work harder to maintain an edge over their industry peers.
Tahera Zamanzada, director of digital strategy for the global public sector at Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), said the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted government agencies to advance digital transformation and deliver better customer service through the adoption of cloud platforms. "The digital customer experience in government benefits tremendously from cloud technology because it supports mobile solutions in ways that otherwise would not exist and leads to much higher adoption rates plus happier customers," Zamanzada wrote. "Cloud can also handle the fluctuating bandwidth of demands so that agencies can scale up or scale down as needed." She noted that agencies should work to provide citizens with an omnichannel experience to facilitate communications and interaction with the government and use artificial intelligence platforms to gain deeper understanding of their customers in order to better meet their needs. "They can use those insights to create human-centered design frameworks as part of their digital transformation plans while they continue to fine-tune their business processes and home in on mission effectiveness," Zamanzada added.
The Iraqi army says two senior security officials have been killed in a "blatant Turkish drone attack" in the country's north, where Ankara has for weeks been raiding positions of fighters it considers "terrorists". The drone targeted a vehicle belonging to the Iraqi border guards in the Bradost area, north of Erbil, the military said in a statement on Tuesday. The strike caused the deaths of the two border guard battalion commanders and the vehicle's driver. There was no immediate statement by Turkey. The deaths announced by the military marked the first time members of the regular Iraqi forces have been killed since Turkey launched a cross-border ground and air operation in mid-June against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in the mountainous terrain of northern Iraq.
Starting a new life is difficult for criminals transitioning from prison back to regular society. To help those individuals, Purdue University Polytechnic Institute researchers are using artificial intelligence to uncover risky behaviors which could then help identify when early intervention opportunities could be beneficial. Results of a U.S. Department of Justice study indicated more than 80 percent of people in state prisons were arrested at least once in the nine years following their release. Almost half of those arrests came in the first year following release. Marcus Rogers and Umit Karabiyik of Purdue Polytechnic's Department of Computer and Information Technology, are leading an ongoing project focused on using AI-enabled tools and technology to reduce the recidivism rates for convicted criminals who have been released.
