At John Deere, ‘Hard Iron Meets Artificial Intelligence’

Intel and John Deere developed an integrated, end-to-end system of hardware and software that can generate insights in real-time, at levels beyond human capability. When using a neural network-based inference engine, the solution logs defects in real-time and automatically stops the welding process.

New to AI Adoption? Don’t Let Data be Your Achilles Heel

In this contributed article, Jeff White is the founder and chief executive officer of Gravy Analytics, discusses the realities of big data: no data source is perfect, and despite your best efforts, issues with new technologies like machine learning and AI are bound to occur. By understanding how your underlying data is collected, cleaned, verified and assembled, organizations can derive maximum value while optimizing internal resources, improving the customer experience, and avoiding costly mistakes along the way.

Gaining the Enterprise Edge in AI Products

In this contributed article, Taggart Bonham, Product Manager of Global AI at F5 Networks, discusses last June, OpenAI released GPT-3, their newest text-generating AI model. As seen in the deluge of Twitter demos, GPT-3 works so well that people have generated text-based DevOps pipelines, complex SQL queries, Figma designs, and even code. In the article, Taggart explains how enterprises need to prepare for the AI economy by standardizing their data collection processes across their organizations like GPT-3 so it can then be properly leveraged.
