5 Things to Consider Before Getting Started as a Developer in AI

Such technology as AI existed for years yet experienced a significant popularity boost just a few years ago. Today, it’s far from being a futuristic thing used by the evil geniuses to conquer the planet. Instead, Artificial Intelligence became a cutting-edge tool to improve the lives of millions by assisting us with our job, studies, home duties, and even relationships. There’s no need to mention that AI start-ups are the ones to run the IT industry: $37.5 billion was spent on the start-ups…

Healthcare or the Economy?  Bull!  It’s Healthcare AND the Economy

We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to address one of modern society’s biggest challenges – the choice between healthcare or the economy.  For the past several decades, we have treated this as an “either or” choice between one or the other; that to improve the economy we must reduce healthcare spending or to improve healthcare we must sacrifice the economy.  To that sort of thinking I say BULL!

The coronavirus COVID-19 situation is showing us a very…

A Typical Day of a Data Scientist

Did you ever wonder what’s a typical day of a data scientist like? A data scientist needs to explore data given to us and provide actionable insights, but how do we do that and is that all we do? Do we just sit in-front of a computer and code all day? Do we spend most of our day reading papers? Or is it something completely different? Let me walk you…

Building a COVID-19 Vulnerability Index

Summary: Since COVID-19 is occupying most of our thoughts these days, it seems appropriate to highlight where AI/ML is making a contribution to getting us out of our homes and back to work.

Simulating COVID-19 with Agent-Based Modeling

Here are some (very) early outputs from an Agent-Based Model of COVID-19 that I'm currently developing.

It allows configuring a number of parameters including:

  • population sizes (of healthy and infected people) by age
  • distribution of vulnerability by age
  • level of social distancing in effect by…

Want to Build an AI model for Your Business? Read This

TL;DR

Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning models have demonstrated significant power to grow and improve businesses. We have found that the best approach to AI production is what venture capitalists do when they evaluate and invest in startups.

A 2019 McKinsey survey found that a majority of executives whose companies have adopted AI solutions report that these solutions have provided an uptick in revenue, and 44 percent say that AI has reduced costs.…

How to combine all csv files from the same folder into one data frame automatically with R?



Have you ever experience a situation where you want to import and combine hundred of datasets? If you do this manually, then it will take too much time. On the other hand, we can use a simple R programming to solve this problem in easily and quickly. Therefore, I would like to share two methods of combining all small files in a directory into a single dataset…

Machine Learning at the Edge

Edge computing moves workloads from  centralized locations  to remote locations and it can provide faster response from AI applications.  Edge computing devices are getting deployed increasingly for monitoring and control of real world processes like people tracking, vehicle recognition, pollution monitoring etc.  The data collected at the devices gets transported to centralized cloud servers over data pipelines and are used to train machine learning models. Training models needs lot…

Quantitative Reductionism and the Pandemic of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused organizations to find different ways to maintain their operations amid calls for increased social distance. In some cases, employees have been asked to work from home in order to reduce the amount of social interaction in the workplace. Due to this emerging distance between these workers and their employers, I suggest that quantitative reduction will become more likely: for these employees, performance will be increasingly unrelated to their social presence…

Speaker Diversity Analytics with the Microsoft AI Face API

How do we increase diversity amongst our event speakers?  To improve something, we must first measure it.  The Face API allows us to collect some of these demographics from past events that we may not otherwise be able to collect, which may allow us greater insight into how we can improve these trends.

The Facial Recognition API is part of the Microsoft AI Cognitive Services suite.  The Face service detects human faces in an image and returns the rectangle coordinates of their…

Statistical Uncertainty: Why are Covid-19 Figures so Varied?

If you've been keeping up on the statistics for Covid-19 in the last week (and who hasn't?), you've probably noticed a wide variety of projections for deaths in the United States, ranging from the "best-case" scenario  (327 people) to the "doomsday" figure (2.2 million). Recent statistics published include:

  • 327 to 1.6 million (Former Former CDC director Tom Frieden, cited in the…
