Machine Learning: Software Industry

By Haykaz T.

Machine Learning has been around for a very long time. People have used algorithms to make better sense of the data they were dealing with. This has always been a hard subject though. You need to be an expert to properly code and develop a software that can learn and interpret your data. Over the last decade we have seen an increase in machine learning software that can take big data and automatically use complex algorithms to better understand it. Machine Learning is the next big thing and many experts think that it will dominate the software industry. We are going to look at two big companies and how their Machine Learning tools will help make such a complex subject an easy one that almost anyone could pick up. read more...

Machine Learning and Security

By Justin S.

Is machine language going to be the future of cyber security or is it just a pipe dream? Many people in the technology community have their own opinions referring to this statement. According to Simon Crosby, CTO at Bromium, argues that “There is no silver bullet in security”. He states that in cyber security you are going up against people that for the most part were taught to learn security for good. Some people with devious minds however learn how to alter the minds of machine language for the bad. Crosby makes a good point because most black hat hackers can learn how to alter machine language so having machine language as an ally in the security field could be more of a con than a pro. Others believe that machine language can and will eventually be the future of security. According to Mike Paquette, VP of products at Prelert, says that “machine learning is cyber security’s answer to detecting advanced breaches, and it will shine in security IT environments as they grow increasingly complex”. Both have very valid arguments and it could be both a pipedream or potentially be the answer we have all been waiting for. read more...

Machine Learning in Retail

By Esteban R.

Ever since the purchasing markets have been expanding, the demand for a better system that needs to be placed into play has been crucial. People tend to have different taste and preferences, so at the end of the day they will ultimately make the decision on what to spend their money. As new systems are applied to company’s ways of doing business in retail, the better off those companies will understand the needs of their customers. We must first understand the science behind these new systems how they will help companies in the end. These systems are using artificial intelligence to provide computer with the proper learning abilities to learn the proper algorithms. Nonetheless, these new systems known as machine learning. From here, these machine-learning systems will better understand the customer habits, purchase history, consumer demand, and market trends. read more...

Machine Learning in Real Estate

By Brian P.

Machine learning has become a new topic which has captured the interest of a great deal of people worldwide, but what exactly is machine learning? Machine learning is, as the name implies, a way for artificial intelligence to learn on its own. Though the process of machine learning is different now, before people use to data mine and tried to use programs to help other people understand it, machine learning on the other hand “The process of machine learning is similar to that of data mining. Both systems search through data to look for patterns. However, instead of extracting data for human comprehension — as is the case in data mining applications — machine learning uses that data to detect patterns in data and adjust program actions accordingly” (Rouse, 2017). Programmers are no longer concerned with helping others understand massive datasets, rather just helping the computer understand it so that it can do useful tasks with that data for us. According to the same article, there are 2 types of machine learning, supervised and unsupervised. The main difference is that supervised applies what is known from the past while unsupervised is all new data in which the AI has to make inferences. read more...

Machine Learning in Aerospace

By Louis M.

The aerospace industry is a complex and heavily data-reliant field which requires a great deal of research, design, and production for proper execution of its products and services. Machine learning has played an active role in the development of technology in aerospace to aid in this process, providing valuable information that would otherwise be difficult to obtain or unobtainable using traditional methods. The development of autonomous systems of control and execution for vehicles and aircraft has been a field of particular interest and help in this industry as well. As the development of this field progresses, it will continue to play a key role in the development of the industry as a whole. read more...

Machine Learning for Health and Medicine

By Brian L.

The increasing power of computers have allowed for certain industries to grow tremendously and for new industries to blossom. This increase in computing power has given rise to a method of predictive data analysis and model building called machine learning. Through the use of complex algorithms, computers equipped with machine learning software are able to learn from past experience and data in order to produce reliable results and decisions. In many instances this has the effect of saving precious time and resources, as well as the ability to analyze such large and complex data that would be impossible for humans to do on their own. The implication of such abilities has changed the way many industries and businesses look to the future. The scope of my focus for this post will be the effect machine learning has had within the health and medicine industry. I will examine the benefits, applications and potential shortcomings of machine learning. read more...

Database Security

By Joel R.

The world has rapidly shifted from using physical documents to storing all important organizational information into digital databases. This shift has caused a new crime to develop dubbed, cyber-crime. Being recently developed, cyber-crime is now recognized as the most imminent threat to our national security. The steps implemented in combatting cyber-crime involves the use of establishing databases with known attack signatures such as, IP addresses, behaviors, and malicious code among others. The way these databases are created is through the use of big data analytics. read more...

Data Mining Within The Retail Business World

By Andrew R.

Across various business, data mining forms a crucial part of the decision-making process when it comes to steering a firm in a direction that is according to the information they have about their products & services as well as their customers. In the retail world, this involves collecting information on products, their customers, & the relationships between those two entities so that they may better be able to adapt the business to ongoing trends. Companies that can craft accurate models for themselves give themselves a competitive advantage when it comes to oversight over their business. read more...
