How to Become a Data Scientist

#artificialintelligence

If you do know what a Data Scientist is, you are rare to find, as since even the most experienced professionals still have difficulty defining the scope of the area. One possible delimitation is that the data scientist is the person responsible for producing predictive and / or explanatory models using machine learning and statistics.


How to stop the brain drain of artificial intelligence experts out of academia (opinion) Inside Higher Ed

#artificialintelligence

Universities have long been a source of talented leaders for industry, but an accelerating exodus of professors with expertise in artificial intelligence has caused concerns. A recent Bloomberg op-ed asked, "If industry keeps hiring the cutting-edge scholars, who will train the next generation of innovators in artificial intelligence?" This article analyzes the problem and suggests solutions. The brain drain of AI experts out of academia can be explained in simple economic terms. The demand for experts has outpaced supply, leading to sharply increased prices.


Supply of AI workers failing to meet demand - Government News

#artificialintelligence

The government must take strategic action to ensure the nation's AI workforce will meet future demands because current supply is falling short, a new report warns. The report from CSIRO's data sciences arm Data61 focuses on how the nation can capture the full potential of artificial intelligence technology, which is already being used in a wide range of fields. The Artificial Intelligence: Solving problems, growing the economy and improving our quality of life report found that Australia currently has 6,600 AI specialist workers, which is up from 650 AI workers in 2014 and is predicted to grow. However it is well short of the up to 160,000 workers that may be required in the next ten years. "We estimate that by 2030 Australian industry will require a workforce of between 32,000 to 161,000 employees in computer vision, robotics, human language technologies, data science and other areas of AI expertise," the report says.


Students push to speed up artificial intelligence adoption in Latin America

#artificialintelligence

Omar Costilla Reyes reels off all the ways that artificial intelligence might benefit his native Mexico. It could raise living standards, he says, lower health care costs, improve literacy and promote greater transparency and accountability in government. But Mexico, like many of its Latin American neighbors, has failed to invest as heavily in AI as other developing countries. That worries Costilla Reyes, a postdoc at MIT's Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences. To give the region a nudge, Costilla Reyes and three other MIT graduate students -- Guillermo Bernal, Emilia Simison and Pedro Colon-Hernandez -- have spent the last six months putting together a three-day event that will bring together policymakers and AI researchers in Latin America with AI researchers in the United States.

School of Law Board of Governors' Eileen Lach - Trailblazer, Thought Leader, Giver St. Thomas Newsroom

#artificialintelligence

Throughout her life, Eileen Lach has been a leader. Growing up in northeast Minneapolis, she knew at a young age she wanted to move to New York City and travel the world. Lach accomplished that and more, carving out a position on Wall Street early in her career and later serving as the first general counsel and chief compliance officer for The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). She is considered a thought leader, especially in the area of ethics and artificial intelligence (AI). During a conversation with Lach last summer, it was hard not to be wowed by her achievements and admire her dedication to philanthropic causes.


ARii and UMP INK MoU to Expand Technology Expertise Through New Academic Programmes

#artificialintelligence

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) and Malaysia Automotive, Robotics and IoT Institute (MARii). The MOU outlined collaborations in research, academic and student exchange programmes and dual degree programmes, and would also pave the way for the establishment of smart partnerships in knowledge sharing between the two parties. Today's MoU signing will be a breakthrough for UMP and MARii to introduce a Dual Degree Master of Automotive Engineering Programme at MARii Academy of Technology in Rawang. This Master's degree programme offers courses on topics like electrification of drivetrains, artificial intelligence (AI) processes in automation, battery system for modern drives, BUS Systems and diagnosis protocol and many other areas related to automotive engineering. The students will be taught by experienced professors from HsKA and UMP.


Two Indian College Students Build AI That Helps Patients When Doctor Is Not Available

#artificialintelligence

In India, healthcare is an issue not because it's hard for people of lower economic status to afford. Often times, it's hard to even find a doctor or hospital in a remote rural area. That's why this particular piece of new technology could be incalculably valuable. Shivanshu Mathur and Raghav Jain, two students pursuing their BTech in Computer Science Engineering at Lovely Professional University, have won the second prize at the NEC India Hackathon 2019 organized by HackerEarth. They received a cash prize of Rs. 1.5 lakh for developing a software they call Medikare.


6 ways machine learning has changed asset management London Business School

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is making inroads into every aspect of business life and asset management is no exception. Here are six ways in which machine learning has transformed the field – from the feel of the trading floor to the ideal skillset. Most flow trading done by banks has already been fully automated. While 20 years ago such products as cash equities or foreign exchange were mostly traded by humans, often with hundreds of traders occupying the trading floors, shouting "buy" or "sell" orders, currently most market makers rely on the algorithmic execution and automated inventory management. In fact, many institutional orders are not executed by hand either; they are routinely sent to the algorithms ensuring optimal execution that would minimize their market impact or trading costs.


Malaysia Holds First AI for Accessibility Hackathon - G3ict: The Global Initiative for Inclusive ICTs

#artificialintelligence

In a bid to create a more inclusive world using artificial intelligence (AI), an American multinational technology company has hosted its first-ever AI for Accessibility hackathon in Malaysia. The hackathon saw teams of IT professionals, university students and young developers working side-by-side with universities, international organisations, start-ups and non-profit organisations to tackle more than 23 different problem statements, identifying opportunities to use AI to build a more inclusive and accessible world. The hackathon was held concurrently across the Asia Pacific and saw over 400 participants in eight countries being brought together to conceptualise and prototype AI solutions that can transform the daily lives of people with disabilities. In Malaysia, the teams worked on problem statements provided by the Malaysian Federation for the Deaf. Technology solutions were developed to address challenges relating to daily life, communication and employment challenges for the deaf community and people with hearing disabilities.
