WekaIO Introduces Weka AI to Enable Accelerated Edge to Cloud Data


WekaIO (Weka), the innovation leader in high-performance and scalable file storage, and an NVIDIA Partner Network Solution Advisor introduced Weka AI, a transformative storage solution framework underpinned by the Weka File System (WekaFS) that enables accelerated edge-to-core-to-cloud data pipelines. Weka AI is a framework of customizable reference architectures (RAs) and software development kits (SDKs) with leading technology alliances like NVIDIA, Mellanox, and others in the Weka Innovation Network (WIN) . Weka AI enables chief data officers, data scientists and data engineers to accelerate genomics, medical imaging, the financial services industry (FSI), and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) deep learning (DL) pipelines. In addition, Weka AI easily scales from entry to large integrated solutions provided through VARs and channel partners. Artificial Intelligence (AI) data pipelines are inherently different from traditional file-based IO applications.

Empowered by AI to Get Close to Customers


AXA XL is the property and casualty (P&C) and specialty risk division of multinational insurance giant AXA. It is known for resolving even the most complex risks for its customers, which range from mid-sized firms to the world's largest multinationals. I run the digital transformation initiative at AXA XL. I'm going to tell you about our particular digital transformation journey, its highs and lows, and how we dealt with them. And the first points I want to make is that, first, this journey is all about the customer; and that secondly, that it follows approximately the same trajectory as the well-known five-stage cycle of grief: from denial, to anger, to bargaining, depression, and, finally, to acceptance.

Meet the team : Rashid Oukhai, the 'philosopher' businessman


We begin with Mr Rashid Oukhai, the Founder and CEO of Peculium. A student of computer sciences, Rashid began his journey some 20 odd years back when Big Data was not formally called so. His interest in data sciences ripened when he started working with a well known Telecommunications provider in France. His first task on his first day was to make sense of a massive database! For most of us, that would have been a daunting task. However, there are few among us that love to work with data.

6 Practical Books for Beginning Machine Learning – Sushrut Tendulkar


It focuses mostly on the Scikit-Learn library with an in-depth tour of some of the most useful methods in Machine Learning-- classifying, regression, a bit of clustering. You'll learn the steps necessary to create a successful machine-learning application with Python and the scikit-learn library. Authors Andreas MŸller and Sarah Guido focus on the practical aspects of using machine learning algorithms, rather than the math behind them. Familiarity with the NumPy and matplotlib libraries will help you get even more from this book.

A Journey To Emotional (and Artificial) Intelligence – IAM Network


For many entrepreneurs, starting their startup is the most significant thing they do. For Rana el Kaliouby, it's one achievement in a series of unpredictable things that this self-described "nice Egyptian girl" has accomplished in her life. In her remarkable book Girl Decoded, el Kaliouby shares her inspiring academic and professional journey. Alongside this, it is an intimate meditation about what it took from her personally to accomplish all that she has. Born in Egypt to conservative Egyptian parents, the family spent several years in Kuwait and eventually fled back to Cairo when Iraq invaded Kuwait.

AI's coming of age, in the middle of a pandemic


We are entering a new chapter in Artificial Intelligence (AI) adoption in the enterprise. Capabilities are advancing rapidly, case studies emerging every day and research accelerating quickly. Frankly the fight against the Novel Coronavirus and the new normal has changed our dystopian perspective on AI to one that is of a human-machine partnership to combat the invisible enemy. The findings of the latest McKinsey Global Survey on the subject show a nearly 25 percent year-over-year increase in the use of AI in standard business processes, with a sizable jump from the past year in companies using AI across multiple areas of their business. Based on my own conversations with leaders, partners and practitioners in the past year, AI is now a fundamental element of the next generation business fabric.

Chatting with Your Voice Assistant - Connected World


I have a vision that voice assistants are evolving so quickly they are going to connect us to more than just hailing a cab or ordering some food. Do you have the same vision? In February I wrote a blog discussing how many of us hate, literally hate, the concept of Big Brother hovering over our lives and listening to our every word. Oh, how times have changed in a half a year. Now we have become a society that talks less about who's listening and instead about how fast we can order something with our voice and using voice assistants.
