The State of Artificial Intelligence Infographic

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the phrase “artificial intelligence”? Perhaps it’s the HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey, or maybe it’s chess Grandmaster Garry Kasparov losing to IBM’s Deep Blue supercomputer. While those are indeed examples of artificial intelligence, examples of AI in the real world of today are a bit more mundane and a whole lot less sinister.

In fact, many of us use AI, in one form or another, in our everyday lives. The personal assistant on…

Complexity frontiers, Artificial Intelligence and Agent-Based Modeling

Complexity, in my point of view, is the key for disruptive evolutions in Data Science and Machine Learning. Approaches as the one from Edgar Morin allow us to see the world through a completely different point of view, analyzing and deconstructing commom sense, leading to a completely new epistemologic view of the world and problems.

Epistemology deals with fundamentals of truth, Socrates, Plato (the cave), Bachelard, Morin, Descartes and so on. An agent-based model is a model where…

Detecting Money Laundering with Unsupervised ML

One challenge with AML is that it rarely manifests as the activity of a single person, business, account, or a transaction. Therefore detection requires behavioral pattern analysis of…

Five Myths About Machine Learning You Need To Know Today

Original article is published at Forbes: Link

Ask most people outside academia or Silicon Valley what comes to mind when they hear the term “machine learning” and you’re likely to get a response that involves a movie like “The Matrix” or “Ex Machina.” You’re less likely to hear how it’s a great tool for fraud detection or supply chain…

Statistics is Dead – Long Live Data Science…

I keep hearing Data Scientists say that ‘Statistics is Dead’, and they even have big debates about it attended by the good and great of Data Science. Interestingly, there seem to be very few actual statisticians at these debates.

So why do Data Scientists think that stats is dead? Where does the notion that there is no longer any need for statistical analysis come from? And are they right?

Is statistics dead or is it just pining for…

Self-driving cars in cornfields

By Tyler Schnoebelen, June 21, 2016.

You can turn right on red in Iowa. Except not where I was last night, from Washington Street on to Linn, which I only realized as I read the “no right on red” sign mid-turn. You’re definitely not supposed to turn left on red, which is what I did a few blocks earlier going from Iowa St. to Clinton. I have no excuse except—I’m not kidding—my mind was preoccupied by thoughts about self-driving…

Introduction to ARM Processors

 1. Introduction to Microcontroller:

A microprocessor system consists of a microprocessor with memory, input ports and output ports connected to it externally. A microcontroller is a single chip containing a microprocessor, memory, input ports and output ports. Since all four blocks reside on the one chip, a microcontroller is much faster than a microprocessor system.
