A Visual Introduction to Machine Learning

A Visual Introduction to #MachineLearning #abdsc

  • Using a data set about homes, we will create a machine learning model to distinguish homes in New York from homes in San Francisco.
  • Let’s say you had to determine whether a home is in San Francisco or in New York.
  • In machine learning terms, categorizing data points is a classification task.Since San Francisco is relatively hilly, the elevation of a home may be a good way to distinguish the two cities.
  • Based on the home-elevation data to the right, you could argue that a home above 240 ft should be classified as one in San Francisco.
  • The data suggests that, among homes at or below 240 ft, those that cost more than $1776 per square foot are in New York City.

Top 10 Hot Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technologies

Artificial intelligence is a $47B market by 2020: 10 hottest technologies in #AI #CIO

  • The market for artificial intelligence (AI) technologies is flourishing.
  • A Narrative Science survey found last year that 38% of enterprises are already using AI, growing to 62% by 2018.
  • Forrester Research predicted a greater than 300% increase in investment in artificial intelligence in 2017 compared with 2016.
  • To help make sense of what’s hot and what’s not, Forrester just published a TechRadar report on Artificial Intelligence (for application development professionals), a detailed analysis of 13 technologies enterprises should consider adopting to support human decision-making.
  • Based on Forrester’s analysis, here’s my list of the 10 hottest AI technologies:

    There are certainly many business benefits gained from AI technologies today, but according to a survey Forrester conducted last year, there are also obstacles to AI adoption as expressed by companies with no plans of investing in AI:

    There is no defined business 42%

    Not clear what AI can be used 39%

    Need first to invest in modernizing data mgt platform                   29%

Based on Forrester’s analysis in its latest TechRadar report, here’s my list of the 10 hottest AI technologies.

’Who’s in control?’ Scientists gather to discuss AI doomsday scenarios — RT News

’Who's in control?' Scientists gather to discuss AI doomsday scenarios

  • A group of scientists gathered to discuss doomsday scenarios, addressing the possibility that AI could become a serious threat.
  • “Like any new technology, artificial intelligence holds great promise to help humans shape their future, and it also holds great danger in that it could eventually lead to the rise of machines over humanity, according to some futurists.
  • Despite the somewhat unnerving content of the event, Krauss said the purpose was “not to generate fear for the future because AI can be a marvelous boon for humankind…but fortune favors the prepared mind, and looking realistically at where AI is now and where it might go is part of this…”

    He added that even situations which we may now fear as “cataclysmic” may actually “turn out to be just fine.”

  • The gathering comes just four months after acclaimed physicist Stephen Hawking warned that robots could become the worst things ever to happen to humanity, stating that they could develop “powerful autonomous weapons” or new methods to “oppress the many.”
  • “Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology has reached a point where the deployment of [autonomous] systems is — practically if not legally — feasible within years, not decades, and the stakes are high: autonomous weapons have been described as the third revolution in warfare, after gunpowder and nuclear arms,” they wrote at the time.

Artificial intelligence has the capability to transform the world – but not necessarily for the better. A group of scientists gathered to discuss doomsday scenarios, addressing the possibility that AI could become a serious threat.

Forward thinking: Experts reveal what’s next for AI

What's next for technology? Artificial intelligence visionaries reveal their insights:  #AI

  • How conversation (with context) will usher in the AI future

    Conversation has been the most powerful way humans communicate with each other for thousands of years.

  • AI visionaries believe that in just three to five years, computer conversational abilities will advance significantly, paving the way for a bevy of life-changing AI applications.
  • How will conversation advance and what are the possible applications?
  • Read about the future of AI-human conversation

IBM interviewed 30 artificial intelligence experts to find out what’s next for artificial intelligence. Here’s what they had to say.

Google, IBM: Artificial Intelligence Will Help, Not Replace, You

Google and IBM: We want artificial intelligence to help you, not replace you

  • In an era of maturing artificial intelligence technology, what does the future of the corporation look like?
  • So they’re using Watson in their call center—not to replace the call center rep, but actually help the call center rep understand their products and their offerings and be able to serve that customer much better than he or she may have been able to.”
  • Leonie Valentine, managing director of sales and operations at Google Hong Kong, likened use of artificial intelligence to a “murmuration,” when a starling flock take flight “without any kind of preprogrammed system.”
  • The Google executive also defended artificial intelligence as a means of supplementing human workers.
  • ’” Valentine said that since “a lot of the technology has been put in place, we’ll actually finally get to the place that’s been Nirvana for the last 20 or 30 years in corporations, which is moving people to high-value tasks, which is actually taking the intelligence of the organization and forming that human intelligence, and where we need value-based judgments and real-time decision-making and a human touch, putting that back into the hands of the customer.”

Google’s Leonie Valentine and IBM’s Vanitha Narayanan say AI should be embraced by call center workers and others.
