  • It seamlessly integrates with Azure Machine Learning for robust experimentation capabilities, including but not limited to submitting data preparation and model training jobs transparently to different compute targets.This is actually a useful tool for developers who needs to work on a AI Solution, while still using the code editor of…
  • “Number of seats” is basically the total number of Azure users you can add to your Experimentation account.A subscription can have only one plan with a “DevTest” pricing tier.Currently supported location is Australia East, East US 2, and West Central US.Install Azure Machine Learning WorkbenchOnce we have our Azure Machine…
  • It allows you to manage machine learning solutions through the entire data science life cycle.Currently the Azure Machine Learning Workbench desktop app can be installed on the following operating systems only:Windows 10Windows Server 2016macOS Sierra (macOS High Sierra is not supported yet)Note: Azure Machine Learning Workbench will also download and…
  • $ brew install openssl$ mkdir -p /usr/local/lib$ ln -s /usr/local/lib/$ ln -s /usr/local/lib/Install and explore project samples in Visual Studio Code Tools for AINow that we have our Azure Machine Learning accounts and Azure Machine Learning Workbench setup, we’re now ready to use Visual Studio Code Tools for AIDownload the Visual…
  • To fix this, just restart the VS Code and you should be able to see the command again.Create a new project in Azure Machine Learning Sample ExplorerWe’ll now then try to create a simple project using sample explorer and test it in our local machine.Click “install” to the Simple Linear Regression…

Microsoft just launched a new set of tools related to Artificial Intelligence last September at Microsoft Ignite 2017, and one of those tools is Visual Studio Code Tools for AI. This is actually a…

AI could save government $41 billion, report says

#AI could save government $41 billion, report says 

 #fintech #insurtech

  • The 28-page report, titled AI-augmented Government, examines several case studies, provides a taxonomy of AI systems, and concludes that in the federal government alone, automation with “high investment” could free up as many as 1.2 billion hours of work and save up to $41.1 billion annually.
  • Through the use of rules-based systems, machine translation, computer vision, machine learning, robotics and natural language processing, the report notes the unusual but “tantalizing” paradigm presented by AI in which speed is increased, quality is improved, and cost is reduced — all in parallel.
  • William Eggers, a co-author of the report and executive director of the Deloitte Center for Government Insights, told StateScoop that automation technologies are now improving in performance at an exponential rate.
  • Report authors note that automation can be broken into four types:

    The lesson to learn from these different types of automation, Eggers said, is that adoption of automation is a two-stage process: First government should automate every task it can, and then it should search for ways to augment human tasks.

  • Government agencies looking to use automation for the first time will find an easy entrée in robotic process automation, Eggers said.

Technologies like computer vision, machine learning and natural language processing will transform government at all levels sooner than people think, researchers report.

  • Increasing the performance of this AI solution is of the utmost importance, even though its track record speaks for itself.
  • One of the primary selling points of artificial intelligence is how this technology can learn over time.

One of the primary selling points of artificial intelligence is how this technology can learn over time. Google, who developed DeepMind, recently bolstered their AI solution to make it learn new tricks faster. According to tests, DeepMind is now capable of learning close to 87% of expert human performance in games. This is an exciting development, although its real life use cases remain to be determined.
