Two years ago Google X, the moonshot lab within Google prepared a speculative 9 minute video for in-house consumption called "The Selfish Ledger".  Recently the video was leaked and found its way…Continue

Now that We’ve Got AI What do We do with It?

Summary:  Whether you’re a data scientist building an implementation case to present to executives or a non-data scientist leader trying to figure this out there’s a need for a much broader framework of strategic thinking around how to capture the value of AI/ML. There are many articles written from a tools perspective about how to take advantage of specific capabilities…See More

William Vorhies commented on William Vorhies's blog post Is Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Really AI?
"Kevin: Some interesting thoughts.  Testing for AI/ML is simple.  Has any algorithmic technique been used to find a pattern in the data (supervised or unsupervised) and that result been used to guide (score) future actions.  If…"

"Thanks for the article!A couple questions come to mind:1.  Is there a more concrete breaking point at which we can say, "this is AI and that is not"?You've gone into this quite well.  The presence of human-based or concrete…"

"LinkedIn comment by Miles Mahoney Leading Digital Manufacturing and Supply Chain, i.e. Blockchain, IIoT, Big Data, AI, Machine Learning reprinted here with his permission - good observation NO, but RPA needs AI and should be business user driven.…"

The Coming Revolution in Recurrent Neural Nets (RNNs)

Summary: Recurrent Neural Nets (RNNs) are at the core of the most common AI applications in use today but we are rapidly recognizing broad time series problem types where they don’t fit well.  Several alternatives are already in use and one that’s just been introduced, ODE net is a radical departure from our way of thinking about the solution. Recurrent Neural Nets (RNNs)…See More

Faster Better Cheaper Image Recognition

Summary:  In the literal blink of an eye, image-based AI has gone from high cost, high risk projects to quick and reasonably reliable.  C-level execs looking for AI techniques to exploit need to revisit their assumptions and move these up the list.  Here’s what’s changed. For data scientists these are miraculous times.  We tend to think of miracles as something that occurs instantaneously but in our world that’s not quite so.  Still the rate of change in deep learning, particularly in image…See More

Comparing AI Strategies – Vertical vs. Horizontal

Summary:  Getting an AI startup to scale for an IPO is currently elusive.  Several different strategies are being discussed around the industry and here we talk about the horizontal strategy and the increasingly favored vertical strategy. Looks like there’s a problem brewing in AI startup land.  While AI is most certainly…See More

Is Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Really AI?

Posted on March 18, 2019 at 9:05am 3 Comments

Summary:  Based on a McKinsey study we reported that 47% of companies had at least one AI/ML implementation in place.  Looking back at the data and the dominance of RPA as the most widely reported instance makes us think that the number is probably significantly lower.

 

We’ve been trying to get a handle on…
