Why Startups Need Business Analytics

Large global enterprises have long been exploiting the benefits of business analytics. For startups and SMEs, however, it’s a different story. Recent research from One Poll found that 56% of SMEs rarely or infrequently check their business’s data, while 3% have never looked at it at all.

The advantages of data analytics to enterprises of […]

The dynamics between AI and IoT

The dynamics between AI and IoT

AI is based on Deep Learning algorithms. Deep Learning involves automatic feature detection from data. AI techniques can be applied to a range of Data types including: Images and sound (CNNs), Transactional data, Sequences (LSTMs), Text (Natural Language Processing) and Behaviour (Reinforcement learning). With this background,let us see how […]

How Big Data Drives AI

Big data empowers machine learning and artificial intelligence, and the greater amount of data available, the easier it will be for these systems to learn and function.

Advancements in technology have allowed companies to gather copious amounts of data on consumer behavior and internal processes — more data than they can effectively put to use. In most cases, this creates loads of missed opportunities to learn and apply the data to better connect with consumers and optimize business strategies.

Companies can leverage this surplus of big data, however, by combining it with machine learning to perform faster and more complex analytical tasks than what humans are feasibly capable of. Essentially, big data empowers machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), and the greater amount of data available, the easier it will be for these systems to learn and function.

What’s Next For Deep Learning?

There are a lot of things that are next for deep learning. Instead of thinking of moving forward in one direction, think of expanding outward in many directions:

Better reinforcement learning/integration of deep learning and reinforcement learning. Reinforcement learning algorithms that can reliably learn how to control robots, etc.
Better generative models. Algorithms that […]
