What Exactly is Artificial Intelligence and Why is it Driving me Crazy

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Summary: Advanced analytic platform developers, cloud providers, and the popular press are promoting the idea that everything we do in data science is AI.
  • The problem becomes especially severe if you know something about the field (i.e. you are a data scientist) and you are talking to anyone else who has read an article, blog, or comic book that has talked about AI.
  • These in turn have given us image, text, and speech applications, game play, self driving cars, and combination applications like IBMs Watson (the question answering machine not the new broad branding) that make it possible to ask human language questions of broad data sets like MRI images and have it…
  • They should have stopped there because now, in describing tools for AI Wikipedia says: – – So Wikipedia has reduced all of the machine learning techniques we mastered over the last 20 years as the development of AI???
  • Even when you get down to the newer specialized AI platforms (e.g. H2O ai) they emphasize their ability to serve all needs, deep learning and traditional predictive analytics.

Traditional Programming versus Machine Learning, in One Picture

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • I did not change anything to keep it funny as intended.
  • Of course, you should add a back loop in the Machine Learning box: an arrow pointing from the Program box back to the Output box.

7 Visualizations You Should Learn in R

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • This blog was originally posted here – – With ever increasing volume of data, it is impossible to tell stories without visualizations.
  • Data visualization is an art of how to turn numbers into useful knowledge.
  • R Programming lets you learn this art by offering a set of inbuilt functions and libraries to build visualizations and present data.
  • Before the technical implementations of the visualization, lets see first how to select the right chart type.
  • To determine which amongst these is best suited for your data, I suggest you should answer a few questions like, – – Below is a great explanation on selecting aright chart typeby Dr. Andrew Abela.
