Deep learning is still a stick-figure emulation of human learning. DL can be trained to a supercharged IQ based on an astounding amount of information, enabling it to execute some tasks beyond human capability. But deep learning has a learning disability. People learn continually (it’s hoped) – every day, in real time. But deep learning is typically based on ... Full article

 Many businesses today seek to transform their operations using digital technology and automation. After years of encouragement from experts to migrate to the cloud, to automate processes and to prepare for waves of technology innovation, the path forward can still seem unclear. Organizations can get confused about what to automate, and how. But there’s a growing need to collect ... Full article

Public cloud rivals Microsoft and Oracle are collaborating to allow customers to migrate and run enterprise workloads across each other’s cloud. Market analysts said the partnership illustrates how multi-cloud deployments are creating opportunities for cloud providers to offer services that interoperate with competitors. The cloud partners said Wednesday (June 5) the interoperability arrangement would for example allow Azure users ... Full article

Buzzy new technologies are commonly perceived, at least for a while, as panaceas. When Big Data emerged some years ago, Hadoop hype was rampant. Addison Snell, CEO of industry watcher Intersect360, jokes about data analytics project managers viewing Hadoop as something of a magic potion. “There was this big notion of ‘Hey, I've got this data, let's get a ...

PayPal is no stranger to fraud. As one of the Internet’s first online payment services, PayPal has been exposed to every type of wire fraud imaginable (and some beyond imagination). Sometimes the fraudsters had the upper hand, but now, thanks to deep learning (DL) models running on high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, PayPal is leveraging its vast repository of ...

AI firms attracted a record $9.33 billion in investments from venture capital firms in 2018, nearly a 10 percent increase from 2017. So far this year, AI funding has dipped a bit, but that doesn’t mean another AI winter is coming. AI firms attracted $2.0 billion in investments during the first quarter of 2019, according to PwC’s MoneyTree report. It ... Full article

A technique known as “ensemble learning” has been used to improve the performance of natural language processing models. However, the approach typically consists of hundreds of different deep neural network models, making deployment prohibitively expensive owing to the heavy computing costs associated with inference runtimes. AI researchers at Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) came up with a way of compressing multiple ... Full article

The relentless ingenuity driving cyber hacking is a global engine that knows no rest. Anyone with a laptop, some programming skills and a mother’s basement can buy or rent a phishing kit and start attacking – or it can be done by professionals with increasingly devious techniques. For cyber-crooks, it’s a numbers game: the one in 10,000 user fooled ... Full article
