Google Sells A.I. for Building A.I. (Novices Welcome)


Google has been using artificial intelligence to build other artificially intelligent systems for the last several months. Now the company plans to sell this kind of "automated machine learning" technology to other businesses across the globe. On Wednesday, Google introduced a cloud-computing service that it bills as a way to build a so-called computer vision system that suits your particular needs -- even if you have little or no experience with the concepts that drive it. If you are a radiologist, for example, you can use CT scans to automatically train a computer algorithm that identifies signs of lung cancer. If you run a real estate website, you can build an algorithm that distinguishes between living rooms and kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms.

New Google Service Makes Machine Learning More Accessible


Google on Wednesday released its Cloud AutoML Vision service in Alpha. It is the first in a planned series of Cloud AutoML services designed to help people with limited machine learning expertise build their own custom models using advanced techniques such as learning2learn and transfer learning. Learning2learn is a process for automating machine learning, while transfer learning "takes a fully trained model for a set of categories and retrains it from the existing weights for new classes," a Google Cloud spokesperson told the E-Commerce Times in a statement provided by company rep Danny McCrone. Cloud AutoML Vision makes it faster and easier to create custom ML models for image recognition. Its drag-and-drop interface lets users upload images, train and manage models, then deploy those trained models directly on Google Cloud.

Surviving AI in the Law Firm: Be the One Asking Questions, Not Collecting Answers


There are a lot of frightened lawyers out there, scared that artificial intelligence will gobble up their jobs. Some lawyers are right to be scared: the ones who don't do enough thinking while they make their living. Think of all times when you're on the phone with a customer service person and are getting an answer that makes no sense to you (but seems perfectly fine to him). That rep who can only explain his company's policy with, "That's what the computer is saying," is like the lawyer whose job is doomed. For a bright employment future, you want to be the lawyer who looks at the answers AI produces, not just the one who asks the computer questions.

Top CES tech reveals include robot dogs, foldable television


Who let the dog out? Sony rolled out a much cuter -- and more sophisticated -- Aibo robot dog on Tuesday, and it came off acting and moving a lot more like a real canine. The Japanese electronics giant retired the original Aibo in 2006 and went back to the lab to develop a 2.0 version. The one displayed at CES 2018 here has a new design that features expressive LED eyes and a vastly expanded range of movement, and is able to learn new tricks through real-world training. It is currently available only in Japan, but for roughly $1,760 and perhaps a little web magic, you can be the coolest person at the neighborhood dog park.

New Trends in Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning


This article was written by Hardik Gohil, Sr Content Writer. Artificial Intelligence has effectively convinced its necessity to the entire world by performing excellently in various industries. Almost all the industries including manufacturing, healthcare, construction, online retail, etc. are adapting to the reality of IoT to leverage its advantages. Machine learning technology is constantly evolving and the current trends in the field promise that every enterprise will be data driven and will have the capacity of using machine learning in the cloud to incorporate artificial intelligence apps. Companies will be successful in analyzing large complex data and providing meticulous insights without spending a huge amount on installing and maintaining machine learning systems.

Google Launches Cloud AutoML for Building Image Recognition Models


Yesterday, tech giant Google announced its latest solution, the Cloud AutoML, that will enable developers, even those that lack machine learning expertise, to build image recognition models. It is said to be a part of the company's initiative to democratize AI learning and provide a simple approach that anyone can easily understand. "Our goal was to lower the barrier of entry and make AI available to the largest possible community of developers, researchers and businesses," Fei-Fei Li, Google Cloud AI chief scientists, and Jia Li, Google Cloud AI Head of R&D, wrote in the company blog. According to the duo, their latest solution would help businesses with limited machine learning expertise build "their own high-quality custom models by using advanced techniques like learning2learn and transfer learning from Google." The two believe that Cloud AutoML will make experts in artificial intelligence more productive and take the technology to greater heights while helping less-skilled engineers build more powerful machine learning systems.

AI vs electricity: The AI startup playbook – Towards Data Science


Michael Faraday is feeling good -- he's tinkering about with electromagnetic induction. William Gladstone, the Chancellor of the Exchequer (CFO of the British government) shows up in his lab and asks, "Electricity. What is it good for?" to which Faraday responded, "One day sir, you may tax it." This is a cute story, but not true. The data science community hunting for'machine learning use cases' reminds me of the Chancellor's question.

Intelligent Agents, Blended AI Factor Into A 'Year Of Reckoning'


This article is part of's December series about 2018 trends, predictions, and new opportunities. Despite a vibrant economy, individual companies will confront unceasing changes in technology and inflated consumer expectations. That's why Forrester Research is calling 2018 a "year of reckoning." It sees both as an existential threat that makes the fate of individual companies uncertain. This environment has prompted a radical shift in what is traditionally meant by marketing; some even view the traditional role of chief marketing officer as outmoded.

AI must overcome data challenges to reach healthcare potential


AI is a hot healthcare topic but still needs to be translated into reality, especially in an industry as complex as healthcare. During the second quarter of 2017, CB Insights counted 29 investment deals in the healthcare AI space -- a record number -- and predicted 2017 would set a six-year high. Enthusiasm is expected to stay heated into 2018, with demand for tools that go beyond noting social determinants of health to using that data to inform patient care plans. While investors will continue to fund wearables and biosensors, what grabs their attention are specific clinical use cases these technologies can support, Megan Zweig, director of research at Rock Health, told Healthcare Dive recently. Tech giants including IBM Watson, Microsoft, Google and Apple are staking a claim in the space, too.
