Microsoft Ignite 2017: It's all about choice, from SQL Server 2017 to Azure Machine Learning

ZDNet

I'll focus here on database, database migration, data integration, ML, and AI. Now in private preview, Azure Database Migration Service is designed to help you migrate on-premises Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and MySQL instances to Azure. Analysis: There's still only "close to full compatibility" for migration of on-premises Microsoft SQL Server to Azure SQL Database. The overall theme was choice, with Microsoft offering an impressive, broad spectrum of cloud, on-premises, and hybrid options for data scientists, developers, data-management and governance professionals, and on up to business users and the customers of Microsoft's customers.

AWS Hopes Macie Machine Learning Tool Will Stem Cloud Data Loss

#artificialintelligence

Amazon has unveiled a machine learning-based tool aimed at securing sensitive data held in the cloud, after a number of high-profile data leaks involving customers of Amazon Web Services (AWS). Macie, a fully managed service, scans users' data repositories for sensitive data including personal information or intellectual property and uses machine learning to establish a baseline for how it's typically accessed. "By using machine learning to understand the content and user behaviour of each organisation, Amazon Macie can cut through huge volumes of data with better visibility and more accurate alerts," stated AWS chief information security officer Stephen Schmidt. A third announcement is AWS Migration Hub, which brings together a number of migration systems introduced in recent years, including AWS Application Discovery Service, Server Migration Services and AWS Database Migration Service.


Machine Learning For Virtual Machine Migration Plan Generation

#artificialintelligence

The present disclosure relates to management of virtual machines and, more specifically, using machine learning for virtual machine migration plan generation. The computer readable instructions includes determining an initial mapping of a plurality of virtual machines to a plurality of hosts as an origin state and determining a final mapping of the virtual machines to the hosts as a goal state. The virtual machine migration plan is generated based on the heuristic state transition cost of the candidate paths in combination with the heuristic goal cost of a sequence of transitions from the origin state to the goal state having a lowest total cost. One or more candidate parallel migration plans are generated based on the parallelism gates in combination with serial migrations from the virtual machine migration plan.


Artificial Intelligence Making a Significant Impact - DZone AI

#artificialintelligence

One way in which this can be dealt with is to have a mobile strategy that offers security to all employees' devices. One of the most visible trends is the increasing migrations of large data to Cloud. Additionally, artificial intelligence will benefit the financial services sector the most, as they are dealing with large amounts of data that needs to be analyzed for customer behavior or fraud. It may also impact in the areas of talent sourcing, skills development and training, organizational structure, analytical methodologies, analytical tools, data acquisition and monetization, algorithm acquisition/creation, analytical modeling, analytical model training and maintenance, and process adaptation.


EU Steps up Legal Cases Against East European States Over Migration

U.S. News

In so-called "reasoned opinions", the Commission has now sent a formal request to these countries to apply EU rules, to which they have one month to respond. Should the Commission not find the answers satisfactory, it can take the countries to court.


Technology, jobs, and the future of work

#artificialintelligence

There is growing polarization of labor-market opportunities between high- and low-skill jobs, unemployment and underemployment especially among young people, stagnating incomes for a large proportion of households, and income inequality. Challenges in labor markets are growing, household incomes in advanced economies have been stagnating, and there are increasing skill gaps among workers. The decline is due in part to the growth of corporate profits as a share of national income, rising capital returns to technology investments, lower returns to labor from increased trade, rising rent incomes from home ownership, and increased depreciation on capital. In a McKinsey survey of young people and employers in nine countries, 40 percent of employers said lack of skills was the main reason for entry-level job vacancies.


Businesses need to adapt to reap the benefits of AI products

#artificialintelligence

While Salesforce is hoping Einstein's tagline of "AI for everyone" proves to be true, there's some skepticism that small data sets won't make Einstein churn. You won't drive insight on small amounts of data." Jim Sinai, vice president of marketing for Salesforce Einstein, countered that "the important thing to think about is there are all different kinds of data. The hope for technology companies invested in the migration to AI business apps is that adoption will be similar to the ways AI has cemented its place in the consumer market.


4 Ways Big Data and Machine Learning Are Helping Conservation - DZone Big Data

#artificialintelligence

The following projects highlight how Machine Learning and Big Data are helping conservation efforts of all kinds. The aim is to help create usable Big Data sets valuable to professional and recreational bird watchers. They've used the data so far to create BirdCast, a regional migration forecast giving real-time predictions of bird migration for the first time ever, which uses Machine Learning and computer vision techniques to follow and predict migration and roosting patterns of different species of bird. Data produced by app users and researchers can help conservation efforts through understanding how natural and man-made disasters can affect tree populations, distribution, and growth patterns.
