Box deepens partnership with Microsoft and turns its attention to AI and machine learning

#artificialintelligence

When I spoke to Box CEO Aaron Levie last year at the Boxworks customer conference, I had to ask the obligatory machine learning question. Today, the company announced a deepening relationship with Microsoft in which Box will take advantage of Redmond's pure go-to-market clout, its data centers (via Box Zones) and, yes, its AI and machine learning algorithms. We want to be the most open cloud content management platform in the world. For now, that is taking advantage of Microsoft's technology, and while today's partnership is significant for both companies, it is a relationship that could only be born in the cloud where interoperability is an imperative.

Report: AWS set to add machine-translation services for developers

#artificialintelligence

It sounds like Amazon Web Services is getting ready to bring translation technology used on the Amazon.com CNBC reported Monday that AWS will likely announce the availability of a machine translation service before the big re:Invent user conference this November. AWS has been first among cloud rivals many times in the past when it comes to releasing new services for its customers, one of the many reasons why it enjoys a leading portion of the market for cloud services. But it's playing catch-up here: Google has been working on computer-assisted translation for almost a decade as part of its search technology, and offers a translation API through Google Cloud Platform for its customers. After building out a huge number of services for basic developer needs, like compute and storage, cloud companies are increasingly jockeying for position based on higher-level services like artificial intelligence, which requires a substantial amount of investment that most companies are not prepared to make.


Artificial intelligence in your shopping basket: Machine learning for online retailers ZDNet

#artificialintelligence

BloomReach is a relatively new company, founded five years ago, focusing on building tools to algorithmically power ecommerce websites, making things personal - what De Datta calls a "personalised discovery platform". Under the hood of a service that uses machine learning to manage on-site navigation, is a "web relevance" engine that uses user data - which has been collected at scale - to understand demand. Currently the machine learning system is working with one billion consumer interactions, on a 150 million web pages; which means processing 5TB of data every night. Users won't be able to tell the difference between natural site content and generated content from the BloomReach cloud service.


Microsoft Will Ride Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing To Higher Share Price, Morgan Stanley Says - BI News - Business Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

It's not just Amazon that will make money from cloud computing and artificial intelligence, according to Wall Street. Morgan Stanley believes Microsoft's Azure business will thrive riding the same hot technology trends. The firm reiterated its overweight rating on Microsoft shares, predicting the company will report profits ahead of expectations next year due to cloud computing demand.


UC Berkeley Releases Massive Dex-Net 2.0 Dataset

IEEE Spectrum Robotics Channel

The dataset consists of 6.7 million point object point clouds, accompanying parallel-jaw gripper poses, along with a robustness estimate of how likely it is that the grasp will be able to lift and carry the object, and now you can use it to train your own grasping system. Instead, Dex-Net 2.0 relies on "a probabilistic model to generate synthetic point clouds, grasps, and grasp robustness labels from datasets of 3D object meshes using physics-based models of grasping, image rendering, and camera noise." In other words, Dex-Net 2.0 leverages cloud computing to rapidly generate a large training set for a CNN, in "a hybrid of well-established analytic methods from robotics and Deep Learning," as Goldberg explains: The key to Dex-Net 2.0 is a hybrid approach to machine learning Jeff Mahler and I developed that combines physics with Deep Learning. Mahler: With the release we hope that other roboticists can replicate our training results to facilitate development of new architectures for predicting grasp robustness from point clouds, and to encourage benchmarking of new methods.

Different Types of Artificial Intelligence and the Names to Watch in 2017 - See Through The Cloud

#artificialintelligence

This ability to have better training and adjustments can let AI write code to improve other AI. Speaking of murky ethical areas, discussion about AI laws will also be a hot topic of 2017. Systems of law will have to figure out who will be responsible for these AI actions, such as the previously discussed autonomous cars and self-learning machines. Hot topics will include lethal autonomous weapons, job losses and how fair those AI algorithms really are.
