Machine Storytelling

Investing, fast and slow - Part 1: The Present and the Future of AI in Investment - Dataconomy


The six co-founders' backgrounds in artificial intelligence, investment management and finance made us think there's definitely something to do there. It's a bit like a trading floor where you have a number of traders, and in our case it's a number of robo-traders which are individual AI algorithms, and we have a portfolio manager which is the cash allocator which uses those underlying signals provided by the different AI algos and optimizes the capital to allocate to those individual signals based on the risk constraints and the exposition constraints, long and short and per instrument, per geography et cetera. We really work in a tight group, brainstorming all the time, bringing computer scientists, mathematicians, AI scientists, all these skills together to think what actually works, what should work, how should we code this, how should we design this. As we have very minimal assets under management to begin with, we create intraday strategies on specific assets.

Gartner Data Science Platforms – A Deeper Look


Example 1: You can run an existing Python script in Enterprise Miner, and you can run an existing Python script in Alteryx. Example 2: Microsoft Azure Machine Learning runs exclusively in Microsoft Azure cloud. SAS' score depends on many other SAS software products, including: The Visual Analytics Suite runs on SAS' proprietary LASR Server in-memory data store; to get data into that format, customers also need SAS Data Loader or SAS ETL Server. Surveyed IBM customers rated SPSS's model management highly, with praise for its breadth of models, accuracy and transparency in workflows, model deployment, monitoring for degradation and automatic retuning.

Microsoft adds a Spark to Machine Learning Library for data scientists - Computer Business Review


Microsoft updates Apache Spark with new Machine Learning Library with advanced capabilities for data scientists leveraging innovation. It is designed to deliver real-time data science, machine learning, advanced analytics and embedded features to explore over globally distributed data in Azure Cosmos DB. In a blog post, Denny Lee, PPM, Azure Cosmos DB said: "With the updated Spark connector for Azure Cosmos DB data models: Documents, Tables and Graphs." Apache Spark with Azure Cosmo DB is what drives machine learning, data science, artificial intelligence and advanced analytics.

5 Best Machine Learning APIs for Data Science


There are many companies like Google, IBM, Amazon, and Microsoft helping businesses process big data by building Machine Learning APIs so that organizations can make the best use of the machine learning technology. Machine Learning is the big frontier in big data innovation but it is daunting for people who are not tech geeks or data science domain experts.Similar to how standard APIs help developers create applications, Machine Learning APIs make machine learning easy to use, for everyone. Machine Learning APIs provide businesses with the ability to bring together predictive analytics so that they can get to know their customers better, understand their requirements and deliver products or services based on the past data trends, thereby initiating the selling process.There is an increasing percentage of real time consumer interactions through Machine Learning APIs – making them an ideal option for exposing real time predictive analytics to app developers. Azure Machine Learning makes it easy for data scientists to use predictive models in IoT applications by providing APIs for fraud detection, text analytics, recommendation systems and several other business scenarios.

Sports Betting: The Next Big Thing for Artificial Intelligence


Quantitative analytical procedures are some of the most successful in the financial world, with an increasing number of money managers turning the grunt work of data processing over to computer algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI). He and his team have been developing predictive analytics programs for sports betting procedures, using machine learning and AI to process vast data fields. The fund has seen some success with its machine learning models, and Stratagem now has an internal syndicate which allows it to bet its own money and bring in a return. Koukorinis and others with Stratagem believe so, seeing a strong connection between the world of sports betting and the hard data analysis that quant is specially designed for.

Looking for Machine Learning Talent Among Data Scientists


I compared the proficiency in machine learning across four data science job roles: Business Management, Developer, Creative and Researcher. As you can see, data professionals in the job role of Researcher reported the highest level of proficiency (36% reported, at least, an advanced level of proficiency) in machine learning. Creatives and Business Management data professionals reported the lowest level of proficiency in machine learning (25% and 22% reported, at least, an advanced level of proficiency, respectively). They found that 36% of the developers employ elements of machine learning in their big data projects, and the current survey showed that 30% of developers possess advanced/expert level of proficiency in machine learning.

Machine passes EM gaokao /EM math test - China -


A smart machine made by a company in Chengdu, Sichuan province, took the math test of the national college entrance examination, or gaokao, on Wednesday. AI-MATHS is an artificial intelligence program developed in 2014, based on cutting-edge big data technology, artificial intelligence and natural language recognition from Tsinghua University. Before Wednesday's test, the developer had the machine answer 12,000 math questions to improve its logical reasoning and computer algorithms. In February, AI-MATHS took a math test with Grade 3 students at Chengdu Shishi Tianfu High School and scored 93, slightly higher than the passing grade of 90.

Artificial Intelligence and the Enterprise - Smarter With Gartner


CDOs will immediately recognize that in order for AI to reach its full potential, they must develop greater organizational competency in data sciences and assure that data and analytics can be relied upon for various insights. In fact, by 2021, Gartner projects that 40% of new enterprise applications implemented by service providers will include AI technologies. CDOs will immediately recognize that in order for AI to reach its full potential, they must develop greater organizational competency in data sciences and assure that data and analytics can be relied upon for various insights. They may also be faced with impacts in the areas of talent sourcing; skills development and training; organizational structure; analytical methodologies; analytical tools; data acquisition and monetization; algorithm acquisition/creation; analytical modeling; analytical model training and maintenance; and process adaptation.
