Why Learn Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence?

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning, artificial intelligence (ML & AI) and big data form up a new niche area that is seeing a fast-paced growth rate in India. To clarify terminologies for a layperson, AI is basically all about mimicking human intelligence in machines, ML is a sub-set of AI and is about techniques that enable these machines to continuously learn on their own through data and perform a desired set of processes. Big Data analytics is about extracting huge data and observing unanticipated patterns from the same, while ML uses the same to provide incremental data/information to help the machine learn on its own. Data science and big data industry in India is growing at 33per cent CAGR (Compounded annual growth rate) and stood at $2.71 Billion in 2018. While the Finance & Banking industry leads the share in the analytics market, travel-hospitality and healthcare saw the fastest growth in recent years, in terms of analytics-use.


R vs. Python: Which is a better programming language for data science?

#artificialintelligence

Python vs. R is a common debate among data scientists, as both languages are useful for data work and among the most frequently mentioned skills in job postings for data science positions. Each language offers different advantages and disadvantages for data science work, and should be chosen depending on the work you are doing. To help data scientists select the right language, Norm Matloff, a professor of computer science at the University of California Davis wrote a Github post aiming to shed some light on the debate. While this is subjective, Python greatly reduces the use of parentheses and braces when coding, making it more sleek, Matloff wrote in the post. While data scientists working with Python must learn a lot of material to get started, including NumPy, Pandas and matplotlib, matrix types and basic graphics are already built into base R, Matloff wrote.


Future search engines will help you find information you don't even know you need University of Helsinki

#artificialintelligence

The research surrounding methods of information retrieval is an entire field of science whose specialists aim to provide us with even better search results – a necessity as the amount of data constantly keeps growing. To succeed in their quest, researchers are focusing on the interaction between humans and computers, connecting methods of machine learning to this interaction. One of these researchers is Dorota Głowacka, who assumed an assistant professorship in machine learning and data science at the Helsinki Centre for Data Science HiDATA at the beginning of 2019. Głowacka is studying what people search for and how they interact with search engines, with a particular focus on exploratory search. This is a search method that helps find matters relevant to the person looking for information, even if they are not entirely certain about what they are looking for to begin with.


What is Quantum Computing and How is it Useful for Artificial Intelligence?

#artificialintelligence

After decades of a heavy slog with no promise of success, quantum computing is suddenly buzzing! Nearly two years ago, IBM made a quantum computer available to the world. The 5-quantum-bit (qubit) resource they now call the IBM Q experience. It was more like a toy for researchers than a way of getting any serious number crunching done. But 70,000 users worldwide have registered for it, and the qubit count in this resource has now quadrupled.


SMX Overtime: Here's how to make SEO gains through data science - Search Engine Land

#artificialintelligence

I am a senior data scientist at LinkedIn working on SEO and guest experience. I presented at SMX London last month about how to apply data science in SEO. The session covered topics including metrics, A/B testing, SEO vs. SEM cannibalization testing and machine learning for content quality. Here are a few questions from session attendees with my responses. For A/B testing, do you use any specific tools/processes?


Databricks MLflow Aims to Simplify Management of Machine Learning Pipelines - The New Stack

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is one of the most popular technologies of this decade. But, along with the growing acceptance and adoption of ML, the complexity involved in managing ML projects is also increasing proportionally. Unlike traditional software development, ML is all about experimentation. For each stage of the ML pipeline, there is a plethora of tools and open source projects available. The training process, hyperparameter tuning, scoring, and evaluation of a model are often repeated until the results are satisfying.


Machine learning advancement in pilot assistance: mindFly - mindFly by Amit

#artificialintelligence

Posted on June 15, 2019 by Capt. The introduction of machines to replace humans is growing steadily ever since the industrial revolution. The use of data-driven approach has led to the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Popping out from computer science and data science as the third matryoshka doll is artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence, or AI, encompasses the ability of machines to perform intelligent and cognitive tasks.

Countering digital fraud is a lot like playing whack-a-mole: As soon as one fraudster is taken out, two more pop up where they're least expected. Fighting bad actors is particularly challenging for those in the banking industry, which lost more than $31 billion to fraud in 2018 and is projected to lose even more as cybercriminals become more sophisticated. The popularity of digital banking services has created ample opportunities for bad actors, leaving banks scrambling to protect themselves against the rising tide of fraud. Faster payments have also contributed, as banks now have less time to identify fraudulent transactions. It's nearly impossible for human analysts to examine every sign of malfeasance with banks processing millions of transactions each day, but that is exactly where learning technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) can help.


matloff/R-vs.-Python-for-Data-Science

#artificialintelligence

This Web page is aimed at shedding some light on the perennial R-vs.-Python debates in the Data Science community. As a professional computer scientist and statistician, I hope to shed some useful light on the topic. I have potential bias -- I've written 4 R-related books, and currently serve as Editor-in-Chief of the R Journal -- but I hope this analysis will be considered fair and helpful. This is subjective, of course, but having written (and taught) in many different programming languages, I really appreciate Python's greatly reduced use of parentheses and braces: This is of particular interest to me, as an educator. I've taught a number of subjects -- math, stat, CS and even English As a Second Language -- and have given intense thought to the learning process for many, many years.
