Cloud Battle Gets More Intelligent (MSFT, AMZN)

Cloud Battle Gets More Intelligent (MSFT, AMZN) #AI #BigData #machinelearning

  • But at the onset, it seems that machine learning technology is going to be the next battleground for market share.
  • “Amazon Machine Learning is a service that makes it easy for developers of all skill levels to use machine learning technology,” according to a post on Amazon’s website. “
  • Machine learning has already improved the quality and accuracy of fingerprint sensors on smartphones, which explains why Amazon is looking to fight off Microsoft to sell access to the technology.
  • Amazon is now taking AWS a step further and is reportedly working on a new cloud service focused on a branch of artificial intelligence called deep learning or machine learning (ML) , which helps train computers to recognize speech, images and objects.
  • Retailers Lure Shoppers Using Social Platforms

It seems that machine learning technology is going to be the next battleground for market share within the cloud.

Using Machine Learning to Detect Malicious URLs

#ICYMI Using #MachineLearning to Detect Malicious URLs  #security

  • Now that we have the data in our list, we have to vectorize our URLs.
  • KDnuggets Home > News > 2016 > Oct > Opinions, Interviews > Using Machine Learning to Detect Malicious URLs ( 16:n39 )
  • I wrote my own tokenizer function for this since URLs are not like some other document text.
  • Unfortunately or fortunately, there has been little work done on security with machine learning algorithms.
  • The data and code is available at Github .


This is a write-up of an experiment employing a machine learning model to identify malicious URLs. The author provides a link to the code for you to try yourself.
