How exactly do you identify an AI start-up?

 

I like this image from the twitter feed of the Paris based Venture Capitalist Michael Jackson

It shows that everyone wants to be an ‘AI start-up’ - but only when it suits them! 

So, how exactly do you build (and identify) an AI start-up

I always like to start off with a set of ground…

AI superpowers – for people and jobs

 

Introduction

In this post, I argue that

  • The idea of AI Superpowers could also apply to people and not only nations.
  • Post COVID the biggest change will be the loss of the factory assembly line (the 1920s Henry Ford model and Frederic Taylor's division of labor ideas)
  • A new class of ‘worker’ - if we may call them…

Could your personality decide how you can collaborate with AI in future jobs?

I am currently exploring this idea in a paper

Could your personality decide how you can collaborate with AI in future jobs?

I am a strong believer in a mode where humans and AI work together and collaborate 

I also believe that if we can master this skill, we can bring manufacturing jobs back from offshore destinations

 

In the book…

Would Bayesian approaches improve COVID-19 forecasts?

Data Scientists worldwide are forecasting about COVID

Mostly, they are doing excellent work.

But still, most forecasts vary widely

That’s not to say that they are inaccurate

There are a few inherent reasons for this

Firstly, the lack of domain knowledge in epidemiology and biostatistics. Most data scientists lack…

An introduction to Statistical Inference and Hypothesis testing

Inference

In a previous blog (The difference between statistics and data science), I discussed the significance of statistical inference. In this section, we expand on these ideas  

The goal of statistical inference is to make a statement about something that is not observed within a certain level of…

COVID 19 - How AI and next generation manufacturing technologies(FMS) can lead to more local manufacturing jobs if we invest in educating the workforce to work with AI

 

Introduction

Due to COVID19, we already have 1000 deaths in Italy.

Two months ago, these folks, many of them elderly, would have been celebrating Christmas and looking forward to the next Christmas – knowing that northern Italy has one of the best healthcare systems in the world

But apart from the human cost, the…

An introduction to Cloud Native applications and Kubernetes

Introduction

Kubernetes is being described as the next ‘Java’ i.e. it is fast becoming an endemic/ underlying platform for the whole industry just like the Java programming language.

For the first time, we are seeing the entire ecosystem aligning around the single platform via the Cloud native foundation.

Kubernetes is the underlying technology behind a term called ‘Cloud Native’

The Cloud Native foundation defines the term ‘Cloud Native’ as: 

"Cloud…

The difference between Statistics and Data Science: Big Data and Inferential Statistics

This post is based on two insightful threads I read online (References below)

Based on these, I address the question of ‘The difference between Statistics and Data Science’. Traditionally, most people, including me, would say that ‘statistics came first and Data Science builds upon statistics’. This chain of thought is valid but as you see…

12 thought leaders on LinkedIn who are creating original content to learn Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

I often use this quote from Isaac Newton in my teaching.

AI is a vast and a complex subject. No matter how much you know -  you realise that there is really a vast amount more to learn. So, my way of learning a subject as complex and dynamic as AI, is to share my insights. This helps me to refine my own thinking.

I also follow…
