  • Here is a nice summary of traditional machine learning methods, from Mathworks.
  • I also decided to add the following picture below, as it illustrates a method that was very popular 30 years ago but that seems to have been forgotten recently: mixture of Gaussian.
  • Note that you can use a mixture of any distributions, not just Gaussian, for instance, (data-driven) estimated distributions such as those based on kernel density estimation.

  • IBM and Maersk said they will form a joint venture focused on using blockchain technology to create a global trade platform.The two companies announced a partnership last year focused on digitizing the supply chain via a blockchain platform.
  • According to IBM and Maersk the mandate for the new company will be to “offer a jointly developed global trade digitization platform built on open standards and designed for use by the entire global shipping ecosystem.

  • The real problem is that the shuttle can’t learn from the incident the way a human would: immediately and without forgetting how to do everything else in the process.
  • The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is looking to change the way AI works through a program it calls L2M, or Lifelong Learning Machines.
  • Trying to do so with today’s systems leads to a phenomenon called “catastrophic forgetting,” Siegelmann explained at the IEEE Rebooting Computing Conference.
  • One set will have four years to develop systems that can continuously learn, adapt to new tasks and circumstances, and understand inputs according to what the system’s mission is (called “goal-driven perception).
  • Another set will have four years to identify new mechanisms of lifelong learning—from biology or a physical science—and transfer that mechanism to an algorithm that improves AI.

  • Facebook’s AI research (FAIR) division last week revealed the details of a neural network that maps 2D images to humans in videos.
  • Basically the team taught AI how to add “skins” to people in videos – in real-time.
  • The end result is an AI that uses a 2D RGB image as input and applies it to any number of humans in a video.
  • Instead of putting a celebrity’s face on someone else’s body, you could change the way people look in a video as if editing a Minecraft skin.
  • An AI with the ability to isolate multiple humans in a video and apply targeted 2D image maps could be extraordinarily useful to law enforcement.

  • The second thing that you can do is to tap into the digital data streams that are emanating from your stakeholders to learn how to make the small impactful moves that will make their life experience more engaging, more efficient, and more effective – at that place, in the moment…
  • Good experience will attract customers, users, and employees to your products, services, and business.
  • We frequently hear phrases like User Experience (UX) and Customer Experience (CX) in conversations around digital disruption and business transformation.
  • Data makes possible a better CX: by exploring and exploiting the knowledge graph of products, services, and content within your business domain, you will help enrich the experience of each customer (amplifying their own productivity and effectiveness) in such a way that they should return again and again!
