4 Sources of Machine Learning Bias & How to Mitigate the Impact on AI Systems

This guest post from Alegion explores the reality of machine learning bias and how to mitigate its impact on AI systems. Artificial intelligence (AI) isn’t perfect. It exists as a combination of algorithms and data; bias can occur in both of these elements. When we produce AI training data, we know to look for biases that can influence machine learning.

Best of arXiv.org for AI, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning – July 2018

In this recurring monthly feature, we will filter all the recent research papers appearing in the arXiv.org preprint server for subjects relating to AI, machine learning and deep learning – from disciplines including statistics, mathematics and computer science – and provide you with a useful “best of” list for the month.

Coursera Expands Coursera for Business Features, Launches AI-powered Skills Benchmarking Tool

Coursera, an online learning leader, announced the launch of Skills Benchmarking, a powerful new Coursera for Business tool that enables organizations to measure how their talent stacks up against others in their industry as well as identify top performing individuals in a given competency area.

Fast Machine Learning for Smart Cities: RocketML at Global Tech Jam

In this video from the Global Tech Jam 2018 conference on Smart Cities, Santi Adavani from RocketML describes how the company’s innovative software speeds Machine Learning. “To find the best model for a problem, data scientists try out different algorithms. With RocketML, they don’t have to. It is like a Hyperloop solution to go from point A to point Z. Simplified workflow yields new benefits.”

How Operational Machine Learning is Transforming Industrial Operations

Our friends over at Falkonry just released the new infographic below “How Operational Machine Learning is Transforming Industrial Operations.” It includes some great data on how fast the industry is growing, who is using it (Toyota, Ciner, Honda, Kawasaki, etc.), how predictive analysis works, and applications per market (semiconductor, oil and gas, energy, automotive, mining, etc.).

Machine Learning in Energy: A Hot Spot in Seismic Processing

Artificial intelligence and machine learning, based on widely available hardware and novel software techniques, give energy exploration companies the confidence to pinpoint drilling locations, resulting in lower costs.  Download the new special report, courtesy of Dell EMC and Nvidia, to learn how HPC technology is being used for energy exploration, ranging from drilling and well completion to modeling oil-refining strategies. 

What is Text Clustering?

In this contributed article, Derek Gerber, Director of Marketing for ActivePDF, discusses how automatic document organization, topic extraction, information retrieval and filtering all have one thing in common. They require text clustering (sometimes also known as document clustering) to be done quickly and accurately. If you’ve never heard of text clustering, this post will explain what it is, what it does, and how its currently being used to aid businesses. We’ll also briefly discuss how a business could employ text clustering too!

AI and the Emerging Crisis of Trust

In this guest article, Doug Bordonaro, Chief Data Evangelist at ThoughtSpot, explores the role trust plays in adoption of AI in the home, our jobs and beyond. 

Best of insideBIGDATA Technology Guides

Over the years since I became Managing Editor for insideBIGDATA, we’ve had some amazing partner firms contract with us to write custom technology guides, white papers, and advertorials. In many cases, I authored the materials myself and had a great time working on the project and getting to know the client subject matter experts. These resources consistently rank high every month in our vast library of content. In this article I wanted to provide an easy access list of the top 10 white papers of all time. The themes cut across the most popular in the big data industry. Enjoy!
