Council Post: How No-Code AI Is Changing Business


Dmitry Dolgorukov is the Co-Founder and CRO of HES Fintech, a leader in providing financial institutions with intelligent lending platforms. Companies seeking to implement artificial intelligence (AI) solutions often find themselves faced with a lack of knowledge and high costs, and that's before they even get started. According to a 2017 survey by Deloitte, 47% of businesses complained of difficulties integrating AI projects into their current systems. Meanwhile, 40% noted cost as a significant inhibiting factor. And 37% said managers simply don't have enough expertise to implement AI successfully, making artificial intelligence and its benefits inaccessible.

How will AI impact the future of businesses and society?


At a time when India is trying to rekindle productivity and growth, AI promises to fill the gap. AI can boost profitability and transform businesses across sectors through systems that can learn, adapt and evolve with changing times. Such systems are increasingly important in a post-pandemic world where scalable AI solutions may be able to help organizations be prepared even during unprecedented situations. As organisations are working hard to re-architect themselves by changing their business models and technology architecture to survive in the pandemic world, it is time for them to invest in scalable AI solutions to achieve their goals faster. At the same time, technologists and businesses across the world have to advocate for the responsible use of AI.

AlphaFold-based databases and fully-fledged, easy-to-use, online AlphaFold interfaces poised to…


In a nutshell, proteins are linear chains of multiple amino acids, each of which consists in a constant unit of 4 non-hydrogen atoms plus a sidechain of variable size, ranging from none to around 20 atoms. The amino acids are connected through the constant unit, called backbone, to form a polypeptide that does not remain random but rather acquires one or more arrangements in space. That is, they fold into 3D structures. What exact structure a protein will adopt in 3D depends essentially on the identity of the amino acid sidechains, i.e. its amino acid sequence. Very briefly and simplifying definitions that are quite more complex, amino acid sequences are encoded by genes; the collection of genes of an organism is its genome; and the collection of proteins encoded in a genome is the proteome. To be more precise, and this will be important later, the polypeptide actually can fold into multiple substructures, each of which is called a domain.

'It's feasible to start a war': how dangerous are ransomware hackers?

The Guardian

They have the sort of names that only teenage boys or aspiring Bond villains would dream up (REvil, Grief, Wizard Spider, Ragnar), they base themselves in countries that do not cooperate with international law enforcement and they don't care whether they attack a hospital or a multinational corporation. Ransomware gangs are suddenly everywhere, seemingly unstoppable – and very successful. In June, meat producer JBS, which supplies over a fifth of all the beef in the US, paid a £7.8m ransom to regain access to its computer systems. The same month, the US's largest national fuel pipeline, Colonial Pipeline, paid £3.1m to ransomware hackers after they locked the company's systems, causing days of fuel shortages and paralysing the east coast. "It was the hardest decision I've made in my 39 years in the energy industry," said a deflated-looking Colonial CEO Joseph Blount in an evidence session before Congress. In July, hackers attacked software firm Kaseya, demanding £50m.

AI Innovations In Mining


These super sized rock trucks are on their way to drop a load of Platinum rich ... [ ] rock into the crusher. These trucks can carry more than 200 tons of rock at a time, and are too large for public roads. With the total operating expenses of the top mining companies worldwide reaching USD $15 billion, efficient operational methods using AI now dubbed smart mining is rapidly advancing. McKinsey estimates that by 2035, the age of smart mining achieved through autonomous mining using data analysis and digital technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) will save between $290 billion and $390 billion annually for mineral raw materials producers. The mining industry is increasingly using artificial intelligence in innovative ways to optimize processes, enhance decision-making, derive value from data, and improve safety.

Natural Language Processing of Radiology Text Reports: Interactive Text Classification


This report presents a hands-on introduction to natural language processing (NLP) of radiology reports with deep neural networks in Google Colaboratory (Colab) to introduce readers to the rapidly evolving field of NLP. The implementation of the Google Colab notebook was designed with code hidden to facilitate learning for noncoders (ie, individuals with little or no computer programming experience). The data used for this module are the corpus of radiology reports from the Indiana University chest x-ray collection available from the National Library of Medicine's Open-I service. The module guides learners through the process of exploring the data, splitting the data for model training and testing, preparing the data for NLP analysis, and training a deep NLP model to classify the reports as normal or abnormal. Concepts in NLP, such as tokenization, numericalization, language modeling, and word embeddings, are demonstrated in the module.

Humans, I quit


The same pattern keeps repeating itself throughout history. A small group of outliers invent a new future. The smart people, the ones with influence, reject it. Social media has given them a free perch. How could they not "get it"?
