Collective Intelligence: Where The Promise Of AIOps Is Realized

In my travels, I speak to a lot of people about artificial intelligence for operations, or AIOps. When I do, I feel I often need to dispel some common misperceptions. Most often, people will immediately latch onto the “A” of the equation, the artificial, and how it can evoke sinister images of automation run amok,…

How the NYPD is using machine learning to spot crime patterns

Machine Learning – Civilian analysts and officers within the New York City Police Department are using a unique computational tool to spot patterns in crime data that is closing cases. A collection of machine-learning models, which the department calls Patternizr, was first deployed in December 2016, but the department only revealed the system last month…

Why modern enterprises need to adopt cognitive computing for faster business growth in a digital economy

Modern enterprises must be equipped with necessary digital strategy and technological infrastructure to integrate cognitive computing systems into key business processes to elevate the value proposition of services on any scale. Cognitive computing (CC) technology revolves around making computers adept at mimicking the processes of the human brain, which is basically making them more intelligent.…

Making new drugs with a dose of Artificial Intelligence

These Artificial Intelligence techniques can speed up many aspects of drug discovery and in some cases, perform tasks typically handled by scientists. You can think of it as a World Cup of biochemical research. Every two years, hundreds of scientists enter a global competition. Tackling a biological puzzle they call “the protein folding problem”, they try…

AIOps: Why Developing Trust In Automation Takes Time

Building trust in AIOps may take time, but not because enterprise users are uninterested in artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) solutions. Why do enterprises need AIOps? Because complexity is exploding. Scale is massive. A single interaction on your smartphone, for instance, may touch dozens of computers and services—and millions of lines of code—across the…

Cognitive Computing: More Human Than Artificial Intelligence

Mistaking cognitive computing for just another AI misses the important contributions this computing platform offers. In 2011, two episodes of Jeopardy stunned the world when the best Jeopardy players in the history squared off against IBM’s Watson Cognitive Computing System and were soundly beaten. For many, this was the moment when artificial intelligence probably became…

THE EXAGGERATED PROMISE OF SO-CALLED UNBIASED DATA MINING

Data Mining – Nobel laureate Richard Feynman once asked his Caltech students to calculate the probability that, if he walked outside the classroom, the first car in the parking lot would have a specific license plate, say 6ZNA74. Assuming every number and letter are equally likely and determined independently, the students estimated the probability to be less…
