Healthcare's Best Shot At Doing AI Right: Make It Invisible


And it won't replace your radiologist. That stated, I agree with Curtis Langlotz, MD, PhD of Stanford, who stated at RSNA this year that radiologists who use AI will replace radiologists who don't. So, what is the path toward making AI a key enabler for medicine? AI-powered healthcare requires three key factors: sound data science, sharp focus and strategic deployment. And, it requires the patience to balance the excitement of advanced digital technology with the practical realities of how healthcare operates.

The Symbiotic Relationship between Big Data and Artificial Intelligence


Business metaphors often contain biological references. For example, we refer to "product families" and talk about the "next generation." We talk about businesses "evolving" and "product lifecycles." We find some companies "on the bleeding edge" of new technologies. In the Digital Age, we find data running through veins of companies and the Internet of Things providing the nervous system of the digital enterprise.

What is the Julia language? A fresh approach to numerical computing


Julia is a free open source, high-level, high-performance, dynamic programming language for numerical computing. It has the development convenience of a dynamic language with the performance of a compiled statically typed language, thanks in part to a JIT-compiler based on LLVM that generates native machine code, and in part to a design that implements type stability through specialization via multiple dispatch, which makes it easy to compile to efficient code. In the blog post announcing the initial release of Julia in 2012, the authors of the language--Jeff Bezanson, Stefan Karpinski, Viral Shah, and Alan Edelman--stated that they spent three years creating Julia because they were greedy. They were tired of the trade-offs among Matlab, Lisp, Python, Ruby, Perl, Mathematica, R, and C, and wanted a single language that would be good for scientific computing, machine learning, data mining, large-scale linear algebra, parallel computing, and distributed computing. In addition to being attractive to research scientists and engineers, Julia is also attractive to data scientists and to financial analysts and quants.

Deep Learning on the Edge – Towards Data Science


Scalable Deep Learning services are contingent on several constraints. Depending on your target application, you may require low latency, enhanced security or long-term cost effectiveness. Hosting your Deep Learning model on the cloud may not be the best solution in such cases. Computing on the edge alleviates the above issues, and provides other benefits. Edge here refers to the computation that is performed locally on the consumer's products.

Automated Machine Learning on the Cloud in Python – Towards Data Science


This article will cover a brief introduction to these topics and show how to implement them, using Google Colaboratory to do automated machine learning on the cloud in Python. Originally, all computing was done on a mainframe. You logged in via a terminal, and connected to a central machine where users simultaneously shared a single large computer. Then, along came microprocessors and the personal computer revolution and everyone got their own machine. Laptops and desktops work fine for routine tasks, but with the recent increase in size of datasets and computing power needed to run machine learning models, taking advantage of cloud resources is a necessity for data science.

Salesforce Einstein Discovery - Easy AI and Machine Learning


Salesforce has done it again. They are taming the complexity of Artificial Intelligence, enabling you to make massive amounts of decisions and discover patterns in reams of data, all with clicks instead of code. This course is for the absolute beginner to Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Data Science. If you are feeling overwhelmed by either the tsunami of data that you are tasked with trying to make sense out of, or overwhelmed by the tsunami of media coverage around Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Data Science, and Machine Learning, I am here to share a competitive advantage. There is an AI and Data Discovery platform that can be constructed and configured with clicks instead of code.

20 women working wonders in AI, Machine Learning, Data Science and Big Data


For a very long time, women working in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math were unwelcome and underappreciated. Take for example the story of Katherine Johnson and her colleagues, who made remarkable contributions to the early years of NASA's space program. The world had not even heard of her name until two years ago, when the movie, Hidden Figures, hit the screens. Sadly, it is still a man's world in the STEM fields, and women struggle every day to find a strong foothold in it. The disparity between the number of men and women with successful careers in STEM is unfortunately large.

A Beginner's Guide to Big Data Terminology - Dataconomy


Big Data includes so many specialized terms that it's hard to know where to begin. Make sure you can talk the talk before you try to walk the walk. Data science can be confusing enough without all of the complicated lingo and jargon. For many, the terms NoSQL, DaaS and Neural Networking instill nothing more than the hesitant thought, "this sounds data-related." It can be difficult to tell a mathematical term from a proper programming language or a dystopian sci-fi world.



For newbies this is the best place to start; introductions, FAQs and a glossary of terms. Information on the different types of learning algorithms used in AI and ML systems and applications. A list of different software tools, used to simulate AI techniques, both free open source and commercial. A list of free data sets that can be used for research and testing of AI learning algorithms. Find out how different hardware can be used to host and accelerate the performance of AI applications.

Machine Learning in Fintech - Demystified


– Big data helps to make strategy for future and understand user behaviors. In 1959, Arther Samuel gave very simple definition of Machine Learning as "a Field of study that gives computer the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed". Now almost after 58 years from then we still have not progressed much beyond this definition if we compare the progress we made in other areas from same time. The idea of FinTech adopting some best practices from the Big Data and AI (Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning) is not so new, have you heard of accepting selfie as authentication for your shopping bill payment, Siri on your iPhone etc. A Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) is a process that manifests these characteristics. It's code that can own stuff. Self-driving car is an excellent example for this. What if you use blockchain to store the state of machine. The key move for blockchain-enabled thinking is that instead of having just one instance of a memory, there could be arbitrarily many copies of a memory, just as there can be many copies of any digital file.
