The importance of Big Data in AI technologies

@machinelearnbot

To say that AI is big data is to overstate things a bit. And yet, without big data, AI wouldn't be where it is today. In the last few decades, the two technologies have advanced in lock-step. Largely because without big data, however clever the AI programmers were, they couldn't get past the theoretical stage. Mainly, this is down to what big data is used for.


Learn TensorFlow Slim(TF-Slim) From Scratch Udemy

#artificialintelligence

Welcome to this course: Learn TensorFlow Slim(TF-Slim) From Scratch. TensorFlow-Slim is a light-weight library for defining, training, and evaluating complex models in TensorFlow. With the TensorFlow-Slim library, we can build, train, and evaluate the model easier by providing lots of high-level layers, variables, and regularizers. At the end of this course, you will be geared up to take on any challenges of implementing TensorFlow-Slim in your machine learning environment.


Open Machine Learning Course. Topic 6. Feature Engineering and Feature Selection

#artificialintelligence

In this course, we have already seen several key machine learning algorithms. However, before moving on to the more fancy ones, we'd like to take a small detour and talk about data preparation. The well-known concept of "garbage in -- garbage out" applies 100% to any task in machine learning. Any experienced professional can recall numerous times when a simple model trained on high-quality data was proven to be better than a complicated multi-model ensemble built on data that wasn't clean. This article will contain almost no math, but there will be a fair amount of code. Some examples will use the dataset from Renthop company, which is used in the Two Sigma Connect: Rental Listing Inquiries Kaggle competition. In this task, you need to predict the popularity of a new rental listing, i.e. classify the listing into three classes: ['low', 'medium', 'high']. To evaluate the solutions, we will use the log loss metric (the smaller, the better).


CLS Architetti and Arup use a portable robot to 3D print a house in Milan

#artificialintelligence

Engineering firm Arup and architecture studio CLS Architetti have used a portable robot to 3D print a concrete house, which is on show for Milan design week. Printed onsite on Milan's Piazza Cesare Beccaria, the 100-square-metre house was formed over the course of a week. Made up of 35 modules, the house features curved walls, a living area, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. The walls were was built by a robot designed by Cybe Construction, a 3D printing company from Poland, using a special mix of concrete and additives developed by Italcementi, one of the world's largest cement suppliers. The roof, windows and doors were added afterwards.


DHL and IBM report cites benefits and potential of AI in logistics

#artificialintelligence

The advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology has been making inroads over the years in various sectors. But a joint report issued this week by global express and logistics services provider DHL and technology powerhouse IBM takes an in-depth look into the impact of AI within logistics. The report, entitled "Artificial Intelligence in Logistics: A collaborative report by DHL and IBM on implications and use cases for the logistics industry," examines different ways in which AI can be used for augmenting logistics operations, especially now at a time when leveraging AI is more accessible and affordable than it has been in the past. "Everything can be enhanced through modern technology, and I think AI is at the beginning of really big usefulness," said Ken Allen, CEO of DHL Express, in an interview. "We already have big data and IoT and this is another part of that.


How Artificial Intelligence Will Impact Corporate Communications

#artificialintelligence

I have seen a glimpse of the future impact of artificial intelligence on corporate communications – and it is good. AI will bring a new level of trust to information, improve the way information is delivered (i.e., via augmented reality and virtual reality apps) and provide better insights and predictive analytics for decision making by corporate communications professionals. My exposure to artificial intelligence has primarily been in the trusted identity technology industry, where AI is starting to revolutionize the digitization of identity and access management, physical access control and cybersecurity, especially as a proactive approach to threat and fraud detection. The management of identities, either physical or digital, is changing rapidly, requiring new ways of thinking to add trust. Trust is an important topic for corporate communications, too.

Musiio uses AI to help the music industry curate tracks more efficiently

#artificialintelligence

A former streaming industry exec and an AI specialist walk into a bar… they leave starting an AI company for the music industry. That's not exactly how Singapore-based startup Musiio was formed, but it's close enough -- and the outcome is the same. Co-founders Hazel Savage, formerly of Pandora and Shazam, and Swedish data scientist Aron Pettersson connected at Entrepreneur First in Singapore. The program began in London as a way to help like-minded tech connect with the potential to start projects, so it does mirror the serendipity of meeting new friends in a bar. "We'd probably never have met each other if we hadn't gone to EF," Savage told TechCrunch in an interview.
