Attention-based Deep Multiple Instance Learning

As Eric Topol, among others, asserts, the rise of AI offers an exciting opportunity to revolutionize the healthcare industry. Increased workflow and efficiency can afford clinicians more time to connect with patients. Paradoxically, the rise of machines will restore the humanity in medicine, and allow medical professionals to get back in touch with their motivations for pursuing a medical career in the first place.

[Podcast] How Contact Center use cases drive innovation in Automation

Who among us hasn’t called a contact center at some point for customer service, tech support, or some other matter? Usually those interactions are mundane, unremarkable, and ultimately forgettable.

AI and Capitalism

AI and Capitalism

In the last few decades, Artificial Intelligence has undergone exponential growth in its capacities. It is no longer a part of the dystopian future that science fiction movies, pop culture and books narrate, but has become general-purpose technology that permeates every corner of our life. Considered to be the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’, AI with its algorithms and cutting edge automation has started to impact the economic and societal organization and decision making. While debates on ethics of AI are long-standing, recent contestations on the effect of AI on capitalism and the economy have surfaced.

Artificial Intelligence is a heartless master: use of AI in recruitment

AI in Recruitment

So lately, I’ve been commenting on artificial intelligence. I’m not exactly sure why it interests me so much. I was going to spend a few moments chatting about how AI is being used in job recruitment. This blog is framed around a book written by Professor John Lennox entitled 2084. It’s all about the positive and negative aspects of development in artificial intelligence — It’s actually mostly negative, although he does praise a number of uses for such technology. I thought he was pretty fair in his assessment overall.

Here’s why the US continues to beat China in the AI race

USA vs China

The global AI race was supposed to be a sprint. Back in 2017 when driverless cars and domestic robots were thought to be just around the corner, the promise of deep learning made it seem like we were mere months away from living in an AI-powered utopia. As it turns out, the global AI race is more of a marathon. And the US has a huge lead that’ll be difficult to overcome for any country, but especially China.

The Data Science Intrapreneuring Manifesto

Intrapreneuring

ewsflash: you don’t work at a hyper-innovative company like Netflix, Google, or Amazon. But if you’re an entrepreneur at heart, can you thrive in a company that resists change? How is innovation in an established company different than in a startup? Gifford Pinchot tackled these questions in his ground-breaking book, Intrapreneuring, in 1985. If you’re a data scientist in a big company today, you’re an intrapreneur — an entrepreneur inside, or intra, a company. So I modernized Pinchot’s principles to create a manifesto for data science intrapreneurs.
