When Average Is Not Good Enough - the Future of Data Science Jobs

Editorial Note: Ajit Jaokar's contribution this week hits home a point that I think it very important. As with any job, it is the value that you bring as a problem solver and someone capable of looking at obstacles as challenges rather than the base skills that you have in a given discipline, that will ultimately determine whether…

AI powered cyberattacks – threats and defence

Cyberattacks are on the rise. AI is part of the threat but also part of the solution. Especially, some of the newer AI strategies (such as adversarial attacks) could be a significant new attack vector.

For example, using deepfakes, you could create highly realistic videos, audio or photos and overcome biometric security systems or infiltrate…

Digital Twins: Bringing artificial intelligence to Engineering

Digital Twins are increasing in usage but are often used in multiple contexts and in a simplified manner. Most references to the Digital Twin actually refer to a Digital shadow i.e. maintaining a digital copy of a physical object that is updated periodically. In a more complete sense, the Digital Twin concept relates to simulation and interaction of…

An overview of Augmented reality applications and their future impact on AI

Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information. AR can be defined as a system that fulfills three basic features: a combination of real and virtual worlds, real-time interaction, and accurate 3D…
