Machine learning is Big Data being used at its most extreme level, processing vast and disparate data sets at a machine level to find patterns buried within, producing insights beyond human recognition.
It seems not a day goes by without an industry leader remarking that machine learning algorithms are the future of everything. Unfortunately, data scientist extraordinaire Hilary Mason is calling bullshit on the whole affair. Mason is the CEO and founder at Fast Forward Labs, a machine intelligence research company. While
Deep learning innovator, AlchemyAPI has been acquired by tech giant IBM in a bid to further develop its “next generation cognitive computing applications,” essentially adding to Watson’s deep learning potential. AlchemyAPI’s deep learning platform allows structuring of cognitive-infused applications with advanced data analysis capabilities such as taxonomy categorization, entity and
Pande Lab at Stanford University in collaboration with Google released a paper earlier this week that focuses on how neural networks and deep learning technology could be crucial in improving the accuracy of determining which chemical compounds would be effective drug treatments for a variety of diseases. A Google Research
Viv Labs, a stealthy startup founded by the team that created Siri, has secured $12.5 million in Series B funding, in order to carry out its vision of an advanced AI. If reports are to be believed, the round was led by the Silicon Valley’s elite Iconiq Capital along with
What does a machine learning scientist who also happens to be a wine enthusiast come up with after a chance encounter with a legendary Bordeaux wine? An application that might be able to predict the quality of wine. Alex Tellez was a Machine Learning Scientist at Robert Half and a
Researchers at Microsoft in Beijing may have developed the first computer vision system that has surpassed human capabilities in classifying objects defined in the ImageNet 2012 classification dataset, according to recently-published paper. “To our knowledge, our result is the first to surpass human-level performance…on this visual recognition challenge,” the paper says.
What could possibly be a leap in AI technology is a novel method devised by scientists at Adobe Research and the University of Rochester to train computers to draw insights on ‘Visual Sentiments’ from mere images. A paper, entitled “Robust Image Sentiment Analysis Using Progressively Trained and Domain Transferred Deep
8-year-old startup Automated Insights(Ai), has been acquired by Vista Equity Partners as a subsidiary of STATS LLC. Automated Insights have been innovating with natural language generation and artificial intelligence to glean patterns in big data and turn them into readable narratives. “We aren’t disclosing the amount, but I will say two things about
