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.
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

Over and over, when talking with people who are starting to learn data science, there’s a frustration that comes up: “I don’t know which programming language to start
Skytree, the machine learning startup catering to the enterprise, has brought forth its latest offering- the Skytree InfinityTM 15.1. With this release, Skytree intends to streamline enterprise adoption of machine learning. “Skytree Infinity 15.1 automates key data science tasks, significantly increases the productivity and ultimately improves the results that come
It almost goes without saying that Tinder has taken the dating world by storm. Stats released late last year revealed that Tinder’s 50-million-strong userbase complete over a billion left and right swipes every single day. The success has often been attributed to the fact that Tinder is the closest virtual
In lieu of the upcoming NCAA tournament office pools and pundit prognosis are starting to gain momentum. For the last few years, however the stakes are high; and the amount of predictive data available gets higher. Betting has been taken to an all new level with big data scientists using
The IBM Watson developer cloud just got five more free beta services added to its inventory, which will expand IBM Watson capabilities to images, speech, and analytics, the IT giant reported Wednesday. The five new services now available on Bluemix are: Speech to Text : This is a cloud-based, real-time
A laboratory automation system that harnesses artificial intelligence (AI) techniques in order to glean and understand scientific data constant experimentation is called a Robot Scientist. Eve is such a Robot Scientist and if certain U.K. researchers have it right, then Eve might have stumbled upon a possible fighting chance against
The promise of Big Data and our ability to use it was a lofty one. Unfortunately, many Big Data efforts have turned out to be extremely costly, both in terms of the investment and the human capital required to draw insight out of it. While companies use many approaches to
