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…Continue

Summary: There are some interesting use cases where combining CNNs and RNN/LSTMs seems to make sense and a number of researchers pursuing this. However, the latest trends in CNNs may make this obsolete.
Summary: There’s a three way technology race to bring faster, easier, cheaper, and smarter AI. High Performance Computing is available today but so are new commercial versions of actual Quantum computers and Neuromorphic Spiking Neural Nets. These two new entrants are going to revolutionize AI and deep learning starting now.Continue
Summary: We are approaching a time when we need to be concerned that our AI robots may indeed harm us. The rapid increase in the conversation about what ethics should apply to AI is appropriate but needs to be focused on the real threats, not just the wild imaginings of the popular press. Here are some data points to help you in thinking about this, what our concerns should be today, and what our concerns should be in the future.

Summary: Just where are we in the Age of AI, where are we going, and what happens when we get there?
When things are changing fast, sometimes it’s necessary to take a step back and see where you are. It’s very easy to get caught up in the excitement over the details. The individual data science technologies that underlie AI are all moving forward on different paths at different speeds, but all of those speeds are fast. So before you change careers or…Continue
