Say there is a machine learning (ML) course offered at your university. We could draw a two-dimensional plot, where one axis represents scores in Math, while the other represents scores in Stats. The color of the point -- green or red -- represents how he did on the ML course: "Good" or "Bad" respectively. In this case, finding a line that passes between the red and green clusters, and then determining which side of this line a score tuple lies on, is a good algorithm.

Visualizing the Massive $15.7 Trillion Impact of AI

#artificialintelligence

For the people most immersed in the tech sector, it's hard to think of a more controversial topic than the ultimate impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on society. In the below infographic, we look recent projections from PwC and Accenture regarding AI's economic impact, as well as the industries and countries that will be the most profoundly affected. According to PwC's most recent report on the topic, the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) will be transformative. For that, we turn to Accenture's recent report, which breaks down a similar projection of $14 trillion of gross value added (GVA) by 2035, with estimates for AI's impact on specific industries.


The Future of AI: Smart Machines Will Save Us, Not Destroy Us - Business Intelligence Info

Then in Terminator, we were introduced to Skynet, a neural network based AI, which raised an army of robots for self-preservation. These would lead to saving of millions of lives across the globe each year, and improve quality of medical outcomes dramatically. The trucks will run continuously on the road, reducing the time and cost and making things cheaper. We expect that in the next 10 years, the AI capabilities of FICO can dramatically reduce the threat of cyberattacks on computer networks and connected IoT devices by identifying even the most subtle forms of intrusions and isolating vulnerabilities.
