The FDA approval of a cloud based machine learning application to be used in a clinical setting to help physicians understand how a heart is functioning signals a major breakthrough. Cutting examination time from up to an hour to just 15 seconds paves the way for more AI algorithms in healthcare.

The job of data scientist - described as the sexiest job of the 21st century and voted the best job in America in 2016 – could be under threat of automation. As machine learning algorithms are becoming increasingly capable, could they challenge the job of the quintessential ‘data rock stars’?

Facebook is an enormously data-rich company and here are 4 ways it is putting this data to use by applying the latest machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques. Using deep learning, Facebook is able to understand what you are writing about, what you look like, and much more.

Chatbots like My Friend Cayla and the i-Que Intelligent Robot are some of this season's hottest toys but could they be spying on your child? Advocacy groups have filed an official complaint claiming these toys are violating a number of laws.

Technology is evolving and changing faster than ever before and businesses need to prepare for these changes. In 2016 we saw some amazing innovations in big data, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, VR, etc. Here’s what we will see in 2017.

There is little doubt that Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are transformative technologies in most areas of our lives. While the two concepts are often used interchangeably there are important ways in which they are different. Let’s explore the key differences between them.

Hello +Bernard Marr,

Code is what give AI its wisdom. Machine learning is code, so weather it's 0's, 1's, or a superposition, it's all software. Hardware is another component that will personify Hard AI's awareness bringing it into fruition.

Your analogy (ML vs AI) is like comparing DNA with consciousness, they are very much different, but play hand & hand making humans aware of themselves and their environments.

Uber started 2017 with the surprise announcement that it will begin sharing its trip data for the first time, with the aim of helping municipal, highway and transport authorities to provide better services, which is causing quite a stir in the industry and beyond.

Companies are using big data and advanced analytics to get a 360-degree view of their customers. This fascinating use case looks at how a leading gaming company uses data to better understand their customer behaviours and even spot people with potential gambling addictions.

Big Data is often defined using the 5 Vs volume, velocity, variety, veracity and value. Experian just released a white paper - A Data Powered Future - in which the company is proposing to add a 6th V: Vulnerability.

Deep Learning is not only a massive buzzword spanning business and technology but also a concept that will transform most industries and jobs, as well as the way we live our lives. However, there is confusion about what it is and how it differs from Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI)
