Is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) strategy feasible for SMEs? (Small to Medium Enterprises)?
In this post, we present a pragmatic approach for SMEs to consider AI (at low cost)
To provide some context - What is AI? - We use the following definitions
Machine Learning means…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

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:

I saw a post recently which claimed that AI can help doctors diagnose coronavirus
On the face of it - this sounds like a positive development but I wonder if it is?
As I understand it, a single Chinese…Continue
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…Continue

Which masters or PhD course should I choose for Data Science or Artificial Intelligence?
This is one of the most common questions I am asked
Here is my view – and the usual caveats apply – i.e. the viewpoint is personal and is not associated with any company or institution I am…Continue

In this post, we explore two terms which are becoming relatively common in professional machine learning applications – MLOps and DevOps
The term MLOps refers to a set of techniques and practises for data scientists to collaborate operations professionals.. MLOps aims to manage deployment of machine learning and deep learning models in large-scale production environments.
The term DevOps comes from the software…Continue

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…Continue

In the previous post, ten strategies to implement ai on the cloud and edge, I discussed strategies for end to end deployment for machine learning modules.
How this relates to Agile?
Deployment of AI comes within the scope the normal SDLC (software development lifecycle)
So, normal Agile techniques like scrum, sprints, backlog…Continue

The deployment of Machine Learning and Deep Learning algorithms on Edge devices is a complex undertaking. In this post, I list the strategies for deploying AI to Edge devices end-to-end i.e. for the full pipeline covering machine learning (building modules) and deployment (devops)
I welcome your comments on additional ideas that could be included. In subsequent posts, I will elaborate these ideas in detail and…Continue
Here is another resource I use for teaching my students at AI for Edge computing course. I like this resource because I like the cookbook style of learning to code. The resource is based on the book Machine…Continue

Artificial Intelligence – Cloud and Edge implementations takes an engineering-led approach for the deployment of AI to Edge devices within the framework of the cloud.
We often use the word ‘engineering’ in casual conversation. However, in this context, we attach a specific meaning to Engineering. Engineering is the use of scientific principles to design and build machines, structures, and other items, including bridges, tunnels, roads, vehicles, and…Continue
