La ville intelligente se façonne doucement mais sûrement. L’open data est une de ses armes, la start-up nord-américaine TransitScreen l’a bien compris : elle ouvre à la rue son service digital d’informations en temps réel sur les transports publics.

The idea of providing insights into a cities data store is essential. This is just one way to make it available to people without smartphones.

Ray Kurzweil - Human-Level #AI is Just 12 Years Away #video #singularityIsNear

In December 2012, Kurzweil was hired by Google in a full-time position to "work on new projects involving machine learning and language processing". He was personally hired by Google co-founder Larry Page. Larry Page and Kurzweil agreed on a one-sentence job description: "to bring natural language understanding to Google".

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a great talk from one of the great minds in AI and technology in general. Moreover he provides an optimistic viewpoint on AI and the changes that are coming in the next few years. And remember, when you reach 1% of the final goal, you are only 7 years from 100%, assuming doubling every year or so. This is what exponential growth means.

You don’t have a million customers. You’ve got a thousand true fans instead, fans that need the personal attention only a small team can offer. That makes CRM—customer relationship management—even more important for small businesses. With a small team and a limited budget, you need a tool that can efficiently help you keep track of all your customer details and personalize your interactions with your customers. Here are the ten best CRMs for small businesses that we found after researching dozens in the category.

Five years ago, #AI was struggling to identify cats. Now it’s trying to tackle 5000 species.

Five years ago, #AI was struggling to identify cats. Now it’s trying to tackle 5000 species. | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

In 2012, Google made a breakthrough: It trained its AI to recognize cats in YouTube videos. Five years later, a contest Google is sponsoring speaks volumes about the field’s advancement. Instead of finding cats, researchers will be required to train an AI to identify more than 5000 different species of plants and animals.

Farid Mheir's insight:

The Economist describes the state of natural language processing in 2017 and what machines require to become more "human" #AI #NLP #MachineLearning | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Computers have got much better at translation, voice recognition and speech synthesis, says Lane Greene. But they still don’t understand the meaning of language. Language is widely seen as humankind’s most distinguishing trait. AI researchers insist that their machines do not think like people, but if they can listen and talk like humans, what does that make them? As humans teach ever more capable machines to use language, the once-obvious line between them will blur.

In 2011 he led the development of Stanford University’s main MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) platform and also taught an online Machine Learning class that was offered to over 100,000 students, leading to the founding of Coursera.

A great explanation of transfer learning and why it has become Machine Learning's Next Frontier #AI #MachineLearning | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Andrew Ng, chief scientist at Baidu and professor at Stanford, said during his widely popular NIPS 2016 tutorial that transfer learning will be -- after supervised learning -- the next driver of ML commercial success.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: machine learning biggest advantage over human learning is that machines can share what they learn. For example, robots and self-driving cars can train using a simulator before they go in the real world. Moreover they can transfer what they learn in one field - say cat-dog image analysis - and apply it to another domain - say reading medical X-ray. This vastly improves the speed with which machines learn. This is a definitive advantage for machines that can ride digital technology's exponential growth. Ultimately, machines will become way more intelligent than humans because of their capacity to leverage the sum of all previous knowledge from birth, unlike us humans. We are doomed!

Developments in machine dexterity may also be significant for the advancement of artificial intelligence.

One small backflip for a #robot is one giant leaping backflip for humankind

One small backflip for a #robot is one giant leaping backflip for humankind | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Something that often bothers me about sci-fi is the loner inventor trope. A guy in a garage builds a robot, or AI, or frequently both that are somehow decades beyond the technology of his day. It’s hard to even appreciate how hard this is for robots to do, because it’s hard to appreciate how difficult walking still is for humanoids. I wrote a whole piece about the problem of building walking robots back in 2011 — it wasn’t pretty back then, and it’s still a challenge for most full-sized humanoids.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: we've heard that robots will replace humans for so many years now that we tend to dismiss such claims. This demonstration shows that this may change in the near future with huge impact on manufacturing of course but also in autonomous vehicles, delivery drones and maybe personal robots. And this would be something very significant given the difficulty that employers have finding workers for certain low skills jobs such as truck drivers https://www.forbes.com/pictures/lmh45edlmk/2017-30-under-30-the-st/#28c4963119b4

LinkedIn’s 2017 U.S. Emerging #Jobs Report concludes that technology skills and soft skills are key for today's job market

LinkedIn’s 2017 U.S. Emerging #Jobs Report concludes that technology skills and soft skills are key for today's job market | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

It may come as no surprise that technology-centric roles stole the show among emerging jobs in the United States, but the prevalence of machine learning and data science roles and skills indicate a shift in the types of technology we can expect to be using in the near future, as well as what professionals should be preparing themselves for.

Having an academic background and a comprehensive suite of skills were also strong trends, especially among professionals who are now machine learning engineers and data scientists. Both of these roles are also often held by professionals with 10 years or more of professional experience, so for those just starting out and having trouble landing one of these titles, don’t be discouraged!

It’s always a good reminder that soft skills will always be important, no matter the profession. The ability to collaborate, be a leader, and learn from colleagues will stand out in interviews, and even more once starting a job.

#Agile approaches are getting implemented in organizations for more than #Software #Development via @BCG

#Agile approaches are getting implemented in organizations for more than #Software #Development via @BCG | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

For most companies, agile is confined to software development—but it doesn’t need to be. Increasingly, forward-thinking companies are taking advantage of the same agile techniques that have transformed software development. Now they are successfully deploying these techniques in other core business units, from marketing to human resources to finance. When companies implement agile across their entire organizations, ways of working improve dramatically. Agile methods are more collaborative and creative and can be more efficient than other business models. But companies must first understand why their current business structures need to change.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: software developers have proven for years that agile approaches deliver much better results than tradition approaches dubbed "waterfall". I believe that because I have lived it many times. Now it is time for others in the organization to embrace agile approaches. And for those that know agile, remember that I always prefer to have pigs on my projects (for others, read this https://www.implementingscrum.com/2006/09/11/the-classic-story-of-the-pig-and-chicken/)
