Off-policy classification gives a boost to machine learning models, especially potential real-world applications of reinforcement learning strategies.
Accenture, a global professional services company, has been granted a US patent for a “quantum computing machine learning module” that trains artificial intelligence (AI) to determine when and how computational tasks would be best handled by quantum computing versus classical computing methods, and route them to the appropriate option. This could help organizations understand where […]
Rare is the chance for us editors to share with you what it is really like to do our jobs. But a recent article from Venture Beat on photo caption AI caught our attention — and we found something in it we can really relate to. Something you probably wouldn’t know unless you’re a journalist […]
Walmart is using computer vision technology to track theft at checkout lanes, says a Business Insider article. This computer surveillance program is referred to by the retail chain as “Missed Scan Detection” and uses cameras to identify scanning errors or failures, the article says. “Cameras track and analyze activities at both self-checkout registers and those […]
Many organizations need to extract data or text from contracts, expense reports, tax documents and more — but the catch is that they have to hire someone to do it. But Amazon Textract could eliminate the need for manual data extraction. According to Amazon Web Services, the technology “goes beyond simple optical character recognition (OCR) […]
While many labs use reinforcement learning to help its robots reach their goals, Facebook aims to accomplish more long-term tasks like creating a robot that thinks creatively and flexibly.
One of the latest trends in machine learning revolves around using algorithms to automatically create neural networks, a type of machine learning system, according to a post from MIT news. Doing so could be more accurate than humans, but it is very “computationally expensive.” So why do it? One of these “neural architecture search (NAS)” […]
As if pesto couldn’t get any better, MIT researchers are using AI and data science to optimize the best flavors of basil.
Everything you need to know about Cognitive Collaboration and other new products from Cisco coming out of the company’s keynote at Enterprise Connect 2019.
