Machine learning identifies new brain network signature of major depression

Machine learning identifies new brain network signature of major depression

Using machine learning, researchers have identified novel, distinct patterns of coordinated activity between different parts of the brain in people with major depressive disorder — even when different protocols are used to detect these brain networks.

With AI Nobody Knows You're A Dog

With AI Nobody Knows You’re A Dog

In 1993, Peter Steiner published a cartoon in The New Yorker with the caption, “On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.” It grew to be an internet meme and captured many of the benefits – and drawbacks – of internet anonymity.

Machine Learning Is Changing the Future of Software Testing

Machine Learning Is Changing the Future of Software Testing

Machine Learning – The majority of software development teams believe they don’t test well. They understand that the effect of quality defects is substantial, and they invest heavily in quality assurance, but they still aren’t getting the results they want. This is not due to a lack of talent or effort — the technology supporting software testing is simply not effective. The industry has been underserved.

Artificial Intelligence: Leadership’s Friend Or Foe?

Artificial Intelligence: Leadership’s Friend Or Foe?

Artificial Intelligence – Since the beginning of time, leadership has been predominantly exerted through physical strength — the stronger the individual physically, the higher up in the leadership ranks of the community they would be. In nature, animals follow suit. The physically strongest animal eventually becomes the leader of the pack.

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.

A Company Called Pactum Shows The Power Of Artificial Intelligence’s Impact On Walmart And All Retail

A Company Called Pactum Shows The Power Of Artificial Intelligence’s Impact On Walmart And All Retail

The most obvious way that artificial intelligence (AI) can impact retailers is to help consumers choose the right products when they shop. But there’s another less apparent way that AI is affecting retail right now that’s happening in places consumers don’t see. New AI technology from a company called Pactum is a very good example of how retail is changing from the inside out.

Digital Transformation Can Help Healthcare Organizations Struggling In A Pandemic

Digital Transformation Can Help Healthcare Organizations Struggling In A Pandemic

Earlier this summer, there was a New York Times story about the challenges healthcare officials face, including a memorable anecdote about how a fax machine spilled hundreds of pages of faxed Covid-19 test results all over the floor of a Texas public health department office. It effectively illustrated a critical larger point: Healthcare providers are drowning in paper.

Why building your own AIOps platform is a bad idea

Why building your own AIOps platform is a bad idea

In the wake of the economic downturn brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, investments in digital business transformation have accelerated. The applications that drive those processes are not only highly distributed, they also operate at a level of scale that no IT team can manage using legacy approaches to managing IT. It can take weeks to discover the root cause of any issue.

How Yoox Net-A-Porter Is Using Artificial Intelligence To Revive Artisan Craft

How Yoox Net-A-Porter Is Using Artificial Intelligence To Revive Artisan Craft

My recent claim that fashion needs more imagination when it comes to using artificial intelligence has been unexpectedly answered by a project combining e-commerce data and artisanship. Not an obvious pairing, but the brainchild of passionate ‘dataphile’ Yoox Net-A-Porter Group Chairman and CEO, Federico Marchetti, and HRH The Prince of Wales, whose appreciation and support of artisanal craftsmanship (and dedication to safeguarding its future) is decades-long.

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.
