Deep Dive Into Machine Learning

Deep Dive Into #MachineLearning

  • Now, let’s look at a quick timeline of machine learning: – – Machine learning (ML) deals with systems and algorithms focused on identifying patterns within data and making predictions by finding hidden patterns in data.
  • It is worth mentioning here that machine learning falls under the artificial intelligence (AI) umbrella, which in turn intersects with the broader fields of data mining and knowledge discovery.
  • Most of the time, machine learning relies on data being labeled as true or false.
  • Before we look at the data mining techniques that can help us identify a fraudulent activity, it’s a good idea to look at the fraud landscape based on the economic crime survey conducted by PwC in 2016.
  • The top three risk prediction algorithms and use cases are: – – Another emerging mathematical model that is gaining a lot of popularity in the area of financial statement fraud is the Beneish M-Score.

In this ML deep dive, get a definition and timeline for machine learning and learn about supervised learning, unsupervised learning, and reinforcement learning.

Google DeepMind is making artificial intelligence a slave to the algorithm

  • Your article (Hi-tech brain drain threatens British university research, 2 November) contains one particularly chilling revelation: that Google DeepMind now runs artificial intelligence courses at UCL and Oxford.
  • Having met the DeepMind people in my role with the MIT Media Lab, I know that their definition of “intelligence” is so impoverished that it doesn’t extend beyond the abstract calculations that an algorithm can achieve, and completely fails to understand that human intelligence is embodied and distributed throughout our…
  • Artificial intelligence of the kind Google promotes can play Go and even – at a pinch – recognise Bach or Picasso.
  • If we entrust the education of those who will determine the future relationship of people and machines to a company whose core belief is that all human experience can be replicated by algorithms, all we can hope is that global warming wipes us out before the machines do.

The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Growing Business

  • While the merits of providing everyone with a minimum income have been debated for many years, the practicality of the government providing it to the people has been non-existent at least until recently.
  • This is because the many services that government provides already, including welfare, healthcare, and the like are taking up so much in terms of money that simply providing every person with a minimum income seems like a simpler solution.
  • What was once limited to science fiction, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has now become a part of the internet in helping businesses grow.
  • For those in the low-income bracket, the future looks bright thanks to the many avenues available to help people make money through Microsoft, Google, Tesla, and other companies dedicated to providing economic access to the power.
  • Big online companies such as Google and Microsoft for example can use their considerable pull to provide the following; – – While the idea of a secure, minimum income has been around for several decades, it may come true thanks to the internet and the ability of large online companies…

How Can We Guarantee a Secure Minimum Income for Everyone? How can it be achieved without damaging the fabric of society?Explore the answers in my article.

Stephen Hawking is concerned that artificial intelligence could replace humans. The world-renowned physicist fears that somebody will create AI that will keep improving itself until it’s eventually superior to people. He says the result of this will be a “new form” of life.

How Amazon, Google, Microsoft, And IBM Sell AI As A Service

How Amazon, Google, Microsoft, And IBM Sell #AI As A Service  #SaaS #LeonardoLive

  • Alphabet, Amazon, and Microsoft have all discovered that the artificial intelligence they use to make their own products better can be turned into a service and sold to corporate customers as a value-added service on top of their booming cloud-computing businesses.
  • Once Google decided to get more serious about its cloud computing business and serving enterprise customers—Google Cloud storage officially launched in 2010—it has found more ways to take its AI investment and acumen and use it to serve others.
  • Both groups have worked on applying AI in healthcare, for example, which then allows Google Cloud to better serve businesses in that field.
  • Although most of the value in Google’s AI accrues to its own products and services, the company has stated that Google Cloud is one of its fastest-growing business units.
  • Amazon has a much more natural synergy between its AI efforts and how it can sell those initiatives to others via its industry-leading cloud computing service.

The tech giants with cloud computing businesses are using artificial intelligence offerings to distinguish themselves and win business.

Artificial intelligence will create new kinds of work

  • To take one example, more and more people are supplying digital services online via what is sometimes dubbed the “human cloud”.
  • But consumers and companies will also expect ever-smarter AI services: digital assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa and Microsoft’s Cortana will have to answer more complex questions.
  • Accordingly, Ms Gray and Siddharth Suri, her collaborator at Microsoft Research, see services such as UpWork and Mechanical Turk as early signs of things to come.
  • A travel agency, for instance, might use AI to deal with routine tasks (such as booking a flight), but direct the more complicated ones (a request to create a customised city tour, say) to humans.
  • Mark Graham of the University of Oxford concludes that platforms for online work do indeed offer new sources of income for many, particularly in poor countries, but that these services also drive down wages.

WHEN the first printed books with illustrations started to appear in the 1470s in the German city of Augsburg, wood engravers rose up in protest. Worried about their jobs, they literally stopped the presses. In fact, their skills turned out to be in higher demand than before: somebody had to illustrate the growing number of books.
