Facebook Uses Artificial Intelligence to Fight Terrorism


"We want to find terrorist content immediately, before people in our community have seen it," read the message posted Thursday. AI, Facebook says, is also useful for identifying and removing "terrorist clusters." So when we identify pages, groups, posts or profiles as supporting terrorism, we also use algorithms to "fan out" to try to identify related material that may also support terrorism." Facebook said AI has helped identify and remove fake accounts made by "repeat offenders."

Virtual exploration could be the future of space science

Daily Mail

Scientists say humans in orbit could operate robotic systems down at the surface by relying on telepresence, enabling virtual exploration – and, some even say artificially intelligent probes could learn to carry out missions almost entirely on their own. By deploying astronauts to a planet's orbit, such as Mars, humans could control the instruments down below in real-time. And, this would allow them to essentially use a'robotic surrogate' – meaning the researchers could experience the surface environment virtually Curiosity is normally piloted remotely by humans, but signals can take up to 24 minutes to get from Earth to Mars. And, this would allow them to essentially use a'robotic surrogate' – meaning the researchers could experience the surface environment virtually, through the eyes of the robot, and carry out investigations through this vessel.

How AI Machines Could Save Wall Street Brokers' Jobs


Morgan Stanley's recent decision to partner 16,000 financial advisers with algorithms that can identify trades and prod brokers to reach out to clients is evidence of yet another in-road being made by machines into human roles. For these digital disruptors, their mastery of machine learning would make it relatively easy for them to enter finance -- arguably far more easily than financial advisers could enter the field of machine learning. Thus, for Wall Street's biggest brokerages such as Morgan Stanley, AI becomes a tool for wealth management. But as Morgan Stanley and other Wall Street firms embrace more AI, trust in wealth advisement is likely to become a triangulated relationship.

Watson For President? - ValueWalk


More recent approaches employ what is called deep learning or neural networks, where AI processes a data set and draws conclusions for a given problem, Davis noted. For example, a group of researchers used a neural network to identify skin cancer by submitting thousands of images of skin cancers to the program. The Watson 2016 Foundation is an independent organization formed for the advocacy of the artificial intelligence known as Watson to run for President of The United States of America. Watson is a system of computer software processes used for answering questions posed in natural language, initially developed by IBM for the quiz show Jeopardy!

Cisco's new network uses machine learning to detect threats in encrypted data TheINQUIRER


CISCO HAS HAILED its new network, as a "significant breakthrough" thanks to its ability to detect malware in encrypted traffic. The company says that this is'one of the most significant breakthroughs in enterprise networking', and that the new network can anticipate actions, stop security threats and continues to evolve and learn. AI, in the form of Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA), uses Cisco's Talos threat intelligence to detect known attack signatures in all traffic, including encrypted data. "ETA uses Cisco's Talos cyber intelligence to detect known attack signatures even in encrypted traffic, helping to ensure security while maintaining privacy," said Cisco SVP David Goeckeler.

How AI could revolutionize custody banks


"Clients can analyze data and react much more quickly with robotics than the current systems they are running," said Bruno Campenon, a BNP Paribas Securities Services executive who oversees the financial intermediary and corporate client lines. Indeed, helping clients manage information may now be the most important tech objective for custody banks, said Steve Lawrence, an executive with State Street Global Exchange focused on big data and machine learning. For example, AI and machine learning technology can help detect patterns in market data that humans might normally miss and make recommendations that can help investors make better decisions, Lawrence said. State Street is also using AI to improve internal processes, such as helping research teams to identify the most relevant documents they should be reading.

Simplicity and transparency: the machine learning regulatory challenge ahead


It uses machine learning algorithms to examine data relating to'rogue traders' and other financial services miscreants, to identify patterns of behaviour. Openness and transparency are likely to be vital in managing risk, because effective risk management requires identifying potential risks. Even standard credit risk assessment requires a human eye to check that the models make sense. It is vital that organisations have employees with the skills to understand and manage machine learning systems.

Apache Drill, Apache Impala, Apache Spark SQL: All these provide quick and interactive SQL like interactions with Apache Hadoop data. It is about making sense of our web surfing patterns, social media interactions, our ecommerce actions (shopping carts etc.)

Understanding basics of data science


Choosing the right kind of dataset with right amount of data is very crucial in solving any data science problem. Estimating the amount of data needed is also crucial while solving a data science problem. So once you have the right structure and the amount of data, let's look at the different types of machine learning algorithms available to solve problems. All the 5 broad categories of machine learning algorithms almost cover the entire machine learning space and have been discussed in a very brief and layman language (impossible to cover the detailed explanation in a single blog).

Three Ways the Internet of Things Is Shaping Consumer Behavior


This means that providers can collect observational data from their users' everyday behavior and, by experimentation, identify which techniques and interventions are more effective. The Booking Experiences app learns over time and combines this knowledge with geo-location data to provide a traveler with increasingly personalized just-in-time suggestions to enhance the in-destination experience. Similarly, digital marketers use A/B tests to infer the effectiveness of different web and mobile app frames to generate leads. We can use data mining to extract information from data and knowledge engineering to extract knowledge from information.
