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 […]

5 Ways to Derive Value From Asset Performance Management Data

On it’s own, raw, unprocessed asset performance management data can’t provide actionable insight into facility operations. To improve performance and extract needles of operational meaning from the data haystack, you’ll need to visualize information streams and run analyses.

Here are five ways operations personnel can derive value from their APM data:

1.  Track Dependencies Within Device Groups

Dependencies alert you to how the […]
