Developments in Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) are happening faster today than ever before. However, the nature of progress in A.I. is such that massive technological breakthroughs…
Everything we express (either verbally or in written) carries huge amounts of information. The topic we choose, our tone, our selection of words, everything adds some type of information that can be interpreted and value extracted from it. In theory, we can understand and even predict human behaviour using that information.…Continue
There are transformative technologies in the world today with consistent effect and reliability in their promise to alter or change the ecosystem. Industries have transformed, and early adopters with it, while others race to understand how best to adapt or integrate said emerging technologies into their organizations in an effective and seamless…Continue

With the rise of IoT devices (Internet of Things), being able to analyze and visualize live streams of data is becoming more and more important. For example, you could have sensors like thermometers in machines or portable medical devices like pacemakers, continuously streaming data to a streaming service like Kafka. PixieDust makes it easier to work with live data inside Jupyter Notebooks by providing simple integration APIs to both the PixieApp…Continue

The performance of the neural network improves with an increasing volume of training data. With more and more devices generating data that can potentially be used for training and model generation, the models are getting better at generalizing the stochastic environment and handling complex tasks. However, with more data and more complex structures for the deep neural networks, the computational requirements increase.
Even though we have started leveraging GPUs for deep neural network…Continue

Technology is known to shift landscapes, even change the game. We saw that when the internet exploded in scale and popularity, as computers became smarter, and the world goes through the digital transformation. An easy example is in traditional marketing, which now borders on the irrelevant, unable to hold a candle to its more modern counterparts.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) are all the rage these days — but with all the buzzwords swirling around them, it's easy to get lost and not see the difference between hype and reality. For example, just because an algorithm is used to calculate information doesn’t mean the label…Continue
The age of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is almost upon us. Rapid developments in machine learning have allowed us to build better, smarter machines that are capable of making decisions and handling tasks similar to humans.
Some of these developments…Continue

As everyone knows Machine learning studies computer algorithms for learning to do stuff. We might, for instance, be interested in learning to complete a task, or to make accurate predictions, or to behave intelligently. The learning that is being done is always based on some sort of observations or data, such as examples…direct experience, or instruction. So in general, machine learning is about learning to do better in the future based on…Continue

Premise: How will the traditional car industry create and extract customer value in the future when the source of that value is no longer the vehicle itself?
An increasingly digital economy is overwhelming every industry, and no business, from the largest legacy institutions to plucky start-ups, is safe. To survive, businesses must embrace digital transformation. For those who haven’t, we have already seen what happens to them. Once…
Over the years, financial industries have had a long track record of managing data and applying analytics to optimizing customer relationships and developing new services. Fortunately more and more life science companies have begun to fully embrace as well as seize upon the opportunities to organize and apply their data in a systematic way, be it drug development or patient care challenges.
Big data has taken off in a big way. Now, most organizations irrespective of the industry…Continue
