Why process mining is seeing triple-digit growth

Process mining

A rise in technologies like AI and robotic process automation (RPA) has increased demand for process mining tools. And more recently, an enterprise spurt in technology investment to respond to the pandemic has accelerated that demand. Gartner estimated the market for dedicated process mining tools grew between from $110 million in 2018 to $320 million in 2019.

Making sense of AI Autonomous Cars going in Reverse and Reversible Computing 

Gear shift

Right now, we assume that time can only flow in one direction, namely forward. Mankind has dreamt forever that it would be nifty if time could be reversed. There are a plethora of science fiction tales including books, short stories, movies, TV shows, poetry, and you name it that have sought to explore what could happen and what might be done if time could flow in reverse.

The evolution and future of AI in the Stock Market

Man trader stock market

Are you aware of how the buying and selling of stocks were carried out when there was no internet or computers? Back then, stock exchanges had active trading floors filled with brokers and traders. To make a trade or a purchase, they had to shout or use hand signals to alert others about their buy or sell orders. It looked a whole lot like an auction at a fish market today. But then came computers and the internet to change the game completely.

Microsoft launches Viva, an AI-powered information hub for enterprises

Microsoft Viva

Microsoft today unveiled Microsoft Viva, an employee experience platform that aims to deliver first- and third-party products across learning, wellness, insights, knowledge, and engagement. . A Forrester survey found that between 60% and 73% of all data within corporations is never analyzed for insights or larger trends. The opportunity cost of this unused data is substantial, with a Veritas report pegging it at $3.3 trillion by 2020 if the current trend holds. That’s perhaps why the corporate sector has taken an interest in cognitive search and robotic process automation products that ingest, understand, organize, and act on digital content from multiple digital sources.

Retraining Machine Learning Model approaches

Typewriter and items

Generally machine learning models will be trained by some learning between set of input features and dependent feature or target variable. The aim of the model is to minimize the prediction error by applying or optimizing cost functions, and when we found some optimized models, we will deploy into the production and the aim is that model will generate accurate predictions on future unseen data as well so the goal is that model will predict the future unseen data as accurately as data used during the training period.
