Five bold predictions on Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

In the report titled "The Future of Artificial Intelligence in Consumer Experience", AT&T Foundry makes five bold projections that showcase how AI will impact the consumer experience in coming years. With AI, computers learn from data sets to understand underlying data structures and uncover procedures to make the correct use of the data. These actions will be automated based on behavioural patterns and work routines, leaving time and space for "higher order thinking." AI has three major impacts on connectivity networks: 1) it allows for accurate traffic and pattern analysis to troubleshoot problems as they occur, in turn allowing for 2) a constant state of connectivity that's optimised for any experience across any set of devices, and 3) pulls disparate information from multiple channels to simplify and quickly contextualise what users need.


AllAnalytics - Ariella Brown - Hiring Trend: ...

As described in a recent Wall Street Journal article, Unilever's recruiting in the past had centered primarily around eight college campuses and the usual resume collection. According to Unilever, The Wall Street Journal reports, according to Unilever, that "Eighty percent of applicants who make it to the final round now get job offers, and a similar number accepts." They were not, however, all represented in the actual hires, which amounted to about 200 positions for the US and Canada, according to the figures in the Wall Street Journal report. The Wall Street Journal reports that other organizations including Goldman Sachs Group and Walmart Stores' Jet.com are using similar digital tools in recruitment.


10 Amazing ways Deep Learning will rule the world in 2018 and beyond - KnowStartup

For instance, deep learning makes it possible for ad networks and publishers to leverage their content in order to create data-driven predictive advertising, real-time bidding (RTB) for their ads, precisely targeted display advertising, and more. Until their paper, such computations were very computer intensive, but this application of Deep Learning improved calculation time by 50,000%. This capability leverages of the high quality and very large convolutional neural networks trained for ImageNet and co-opted for the problem of image colorization. The team applies the technical trading rules developed from spot market prices, on futures market prices using a CAPM based hedge ratio.

Building Intelligent IoT with Fog Computing

#artificialintelligence

PaaS providers offer ready-to-use services like security, data storage, device management and big data analysis. ADS employs multiple advanced technologies: multimodal sensors, computer vision, artificial intelligence and machine learning, etc. Fog computing will be crucial, where time sensitive computer vision or AI inferencing is handled on edge processing nodes, while more long time big data analysis can be handled on the cloud. Since 2007, Nvidia has developed Compute Unified Device Architecture(CUDA) technology to exploit the power of its graphics chips in compute problems besides 3D shader processing.


Artificial intelligence could be the future of banking

#artificialintelligence

Taking their cue from social media, banks are now embracing a host of new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) – including machine-learning algorithms and natural language processing – application-based services, cloud storage and real-time data management. A number of factors are driving this innovation, including the migration of clients to digital channels, technology advancement in data management and analytics, and ever-rising expectations of clients and regulators. Social media pioneered cloud computing and developed data management software out of necessity to manage costs and develop valuable insights about clients such as what they like to buy, do and watch. But as banks migrate to the big data tools developed by the social media industry, they will be able to flip the 80/20 rule on its head and deliver better business insights for the business and their clients.


Amazon Has Largest A.I. Platform in the World, Its Machine Learning Guru Boasts

#artificialintelligence

Amazon (AMZN) today kicked off its user conference for its AWS cloud computing service, "AWS Summit," in New York, and I stopped by the Javitz convention center where it was being held to meet with one of the keynote speakers, Matt Wood, who is the director of product management for the "deep learning" efforts within artificial intelligence at AWS. He seems especially proud of the fact that there is "tons of genomics today running on AWS, a lot of analysis happens there." In particular, he notes the increase in "inference at the edge," meaning, in client computing devices and other things that are not inside the data center. I wrapped up the conversation asking Wood what he thinks of machines making machines, meaning, machine learning being able to design new algorithms for machine learning, a kind of self-reflexive moment in A.I.

Visualization and Imputation of Missing Data - Udemy

@machinelearnbot

There are many problems associated with analyzing data sets that contain missing data. This Visualization and Imputation of Missing Data course focuses on understanding patterns of'missingness' in a data sample, especially non-multivariate-normal data sets, and teaches one to use various appropriate imputation techniques to "fill in" the missing data. Using the VIM and VIMGUI packages in R, the course also teaches how to create dozens of different and unique visualizations to better understand existing patterns of both the missing and imputed data in your samples. Furthermore, the course trains one to recognize the patterns of missingness using many vibrant and varied visualizations of the missing data patterns created by the professional VIMGUI software included in the course materials and made available to all course participants.
