AWS SageMaker brings machine learning to developers

#artificialintelligence

Amazon Web Services released a tool this week to empower developers to build smarter, artificial intelligence-driven applications like the AI experts. The role of the software tester has undergone significant upheaval and change in recent years. To help get you situated in today's landscape, we filled this guide with advice, research, and user reviews of popular test management tools. You forgot to provide an Email Address.

Google Brain Co-Founder Teams With Foxconn to Bring AI to Factories

#artificialintelligence

Consumers now experience AI mostly through image recognition to help categorize digital photographs and speech recognition that helps power digital voice assistants such as Apple Inc's Siri or Amazon.com In many factories, workers look over parts coming off an assembly line for defects. Ng showed a video in which a worker instead put a circuit board beneath a digital camera connected to a computer and the computer identified a defect in the part. Ng said that while typical computer vision systems might require thousands of sample images to become "trained," Landing.ai's

Ask the AI experts: What are the applications of AI?

#artificialintelligence

Automotive, financial services, utilities--in these and many other industries, businesses are already applying artificial intelligence to core business processes and to innovating products. Business adoption of artificial intelligence is picking up steam, but still today only 20 percent of organizations that are aware of AI actually use this rapidly advancing technology. One reason: many executives are still wondering, "What can AI do for my business?" Earlier this year at the AI Frontiers conference in Santa Clara, California, we sat down with AI experts from some of the world's leading technology-first organizations to find out about current and future applications of AI. An edited version of the experts' remarks follows the video.


The Trouble with Bias - NIPS 2017 Keynote - Kate Crawford #NIPS2017

#artificialintelligence

Kate Crawford is a leading researcher, academic and author who has spent the last decade studying the social implications of data systems, machine learning and artificial intelligence. She is a Distinguished Research Professor at New York University, a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research New York, and a Visiting Professor at the MIT Media Lab.


Microsoft's expanding its AI into search, email, Office and apps

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft AI chief Harry Shum says the company is fulfilling Bill Gates' vision of a computer that can understand us. If you ask Google "Is Hamilton a good musical?" it will send back a link to Quora, the question-and-answer service, where people ask that same question. The next link, a story published in Slate last year, is an interview with a critic who argues why the Pulitzer-, Grammy- and Tony-winning musical isn't revolutionary (their pun, not ours). Microsoft thinks it can do better. Beginning Wednesday, the company will start giving you more nuanced answers, powered by artificial intelligence software designed to identify different viewpoints.


The Morning After: Thursday, December 14th 2017

In cased you missed it, we got driven down an actual highway while wearing a VR headset, did cartwheels in a next-generation VR device and heard all about T-Mobile launching a TV service. That last one has nothing to do with VR. Its "world-scale" tracking is surprisingly solid. After fully unveiling the Vive Focus, HTC finally allowed lucky folks like Richard Lai to properly test out the six-degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) standalone VR headset. For the first time, you can actually walk around in VR without being tethered to a PC or confined to a fixed space. It's a truly mobile virtual reality solution -- more so than smartphone-based VR headsets, which only let you look around on the spot (3DoF). The'mind off' Symbioz car sells us the future of commuting. Renault's concept EV drove me at 80MPH while I wore a VR headset With fully autonomous vehicles just around the corner, Renault is trying to imagine how we can spend our free time once we surrender the wheel to robots. That involved Steve Dent being plugged into a VR headset while still at the wheel of Renault's prototype EV. While it was still zooming down a French highway. Who owns the work of an artificial intelligence? Modern copyright law can't keep pace with thinking machines This past April, engineer Alex Reben developed and posted to YouTube, "Deeply Artificial Trees", an art piece powered by machine learning, which leveraged old Joy of Painting videos. It generated gibberish audio in the speaking style and tone of Bob Ross, the show's host. Bob Ross' estate was not amused, subsequently issuing a DMCA takedown request and having the video knocked offline until very recently.


Artificial or Augmented Intelligence: Talks with Intel's Chief Data Scientist, Bob Rogers

@machinelearnbot

I recently sat down with Bob Rogers. Bob is Intel's Chief Data Scientist for Analytics and AI. I sought out answers to the some of the most popular questions related to artificial and augmented intelligence. The entire interview was illuminating, and shed some light on aspects that many people wouldn't know about. So what is AI? Artificial intelligence is human-like intelligence that works in a similar way to our brains--though not quite, of course.


10 Companies Using Machine Learning in Cool Ways

#artificialintelligence

If science-fiction movies have taught us anything, it's that the future is a bleak and terrifying dystopia ruled by murderous sentient robots. Fortunately, only one of these things is true – but that could soon change, as the doomsayers are so fond of telling us. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are among the most significant technological developments in recent history. Few fields promise to "disrupt" (to borrow a favored term) life as we know it quite like machine learning, but many of the applications of machine learning technology go unseen. Want to see some real examples of machine learning in action?


How can Retail and E-commerce Benefit from Data Science

#artificialintelligence

The global retail analytics market is expected to grow by $5.1 billion by 2022 to an estimated $8.64 billion. This extraordinary growth will largely be driven by the use of data science in disrupting the retail sector -- changing the way retailers do business online and offline, from the way stores organise their layout to hyper-targeted and optimised pricing and offers. In the UK alone, the retail sector is worth more than £368bn, employs 2.3 million people and accounts for 1/3 of all consumer spending. Retail generates huge amounts of highly valuable data that businesses are only recently starting to utilise. However, recent reports suggest that the sector is struggling, due to changing spending habits and shifting shopping trends.
