Why Automated Machine Learning Is Becoming A Must-Have Business Intelligence Skill

Why Automated Machine Learning Is Becoming A Must-Have Business Intelligence Skill

The business intelligence (BI) landscape is changing. Traditionally, BI analysts used dashboarding and analytics tools like Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Power BI and Tableau. However, analytics tools are rapidly evolving, and BI analysts are expected to evolve alongside industry advancements. In particular, predictive analytics used to be in the domain of more technical employees, but today, no-code automated machine learning (AutoML) tools mean anyone can deploy AI.

Sorting out viruses with machine learning

Sorting out viruses with machine learning

The ongoing global pandemic has created an urgent need for rapid tests that can diagnose the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the pathogen that causes COVID-19, and distinguish it from other respiratory viruses. Now, researchers from Japan have demonstrated a new system for single-virion identification of common respiratory pathogens using a machine learning algorithm trained on changes in current across silicon nanopores. This work may lead to fast and accurate screening tests for diseases like COVID-19 and influenza.

AI and machine learning: Powering the next-gen enterprise

AI and machine learning: Powering the next-gen enterprise

By now most of us understand that, in our current era, artificial intelligence (AI) and its subset machine learning (ML) have little to do with human intelligence. AI/ML is all about recognizing patterns in data and automating discrete tasks, from algorithms that flag fraudulent financial transactions to chatbots that answer customer questions. And guess what? IT leaders appreciate the enormous potential.

Using Machine Learning To Predict Disease In Cattle Might Help Solve A Billion-Dollar Problem

Using Machine Learning To Predict Disease In Cattle Might Help Solve A Billion-Dollar Problem

Machine Learning – One of the challenges in scaling up meat production are issues of disease for the animals. Take bovine respiratory disease (BRD), for example. This contagious infection is responsible for nearly half of all feedlot deaths for cattle every year in North America. The industry’s costs for managing the disease come close to $1 billion annually.
