Machine Learning Research Should Be Clear, Dynamic and Vivid.
Distill Is Here to Help.

The web is a powerful medium to share new ways of thinking. Over the last few years we’ve seen many imaginative examples of such work. But traditional academic publishing remains focused on the PDF, which prevents this sort of communication.

How Sensors, Robotics And Artificial Intelligence Will Transform Agriculture

How Sensors, Robotics And Artificial Intelligence Will Transform Agriculture

  • This means we need new ways to grow food that are smarter and helps regulate our use of land, water and energy in order to feed the planet and avoid a global food crisis.
  • Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute believe the answer lies in sensors, artificial intelligence (AI) and robots.
  • In a new initiative called FarmView, researchers are working to combine sensors, robotics and artificial intelligence to create a fleet of mobile field robots they hope will improve plant breeding and crop-management practices.

Artificial Intelligence Is Changing How We Shop Online

How #AI is changing the way we do our shopping online:

  • These deep learning algorithms have been used in the autonomous driving industry for quite some time, and only now is it beginning to branch out into other industries, such as online shopping.
  • One company that offers machine learning solutions for e-commerce businesses and others is Adobe Marketing Cloud as they recognize the need to make use of AI as early as possible.
  • Andrew Zhai is an engineer working on the visual search side of things at Pinterest, and he said, “For shopping specifically, improvements to online discovery means new ways to find products you’re interested in but may not have the words for.
  • Etsy is also keen to jump onboard with deep learning technology, and just last fall purchased Blackbird Technologies to integrate the firm image recognition and natural language processing into its search function.
  • Some of Adobe’s marketing tools also use deep learning techniques and are used to predict their customer’s shopping behaviors and patterns.

There’s no doubt about it that our future is one that involves artificial intelligence (AI) in a big way. While some companies are faster than others at

Your Next Beer Might Be Made by Artificial Intelligence

Your next beer might be made by artificial intelligence - but how will it taste?

  • Beer has a rich history in London.
  • Were about using data to listen to our customers, get all that feedback, and then brew something thats more attuned to what they actually want and need.”
  • The beer is made in small batches, and some customers havent loved the taste of the algorithm-crafted recipes.
  • The algorithm produces new recipes every month incorporating the feedback.
  • Four styles have been made and each version is adjusted by the algorithm based on customer feedback.

The world’s first beer brewed with the help of artificial intelligence is on sale in the U-K.  But how does it taste?

Cambridge Scientists: We Shouldn’t Define Intelligence According to Humanity

  • Maybe the definition of intelligence needs a rethink; a Cambridge scientist has a few ideas.
  • Cambridge Scientists: We Shouldn’t Define Intelligence According to Humanity
  • The machines have their own unique neural architectures, distinct from the human kind.
  • Intelligence may be expanded to encompass, not merely human thinking, but the thinking of other primates, certain bird species, and even machines and computer programs.
  • Digger wasps hide food for the future, but this is more of a programmed behavior.

The Future of General Insurance Report 2016

Great report from @MarketforceBM on the future of insurance. #InsurTech #AI #blockchain

  • The opportunities are just some of the reasons why the Chartered Insurance Institute is delighted to support this research into the challenges facing the insurance community as it looks to ensure it remains relevant to the changing needs of a changing society.
  • The brave new world is right now, and throwing up opportunities for insurance to demonstrate its value to customers – in both personal and commercial lines – embracing on-demand, lifestyle solutions and new emerging risks.
  • And an opportunity to be more transparent with customers to explain how insurance works – both key to improving customer trust in the insurance profession.
  • Insurance companies need to show increased readiness to partner with challengers in order to accelerate their own digital transformation.
  • Our survey finds an industry with a growing appetite for innovation and a window of opportunity in which to leverage data flows from the Internet of Things combined with the power of artificial intelligence and the security of blockchain to deliver its own game-changing disruption.
