Artificial Intelligence and Healthcare

In the modern era, with almost all industrial sector adopting new technologies, healthcare sector is no exception. Artificial Intelligence has changed the way in which we seek medical care.The use of artificial intelligence in medicine has reduced manual tasks and increased efficiency and patient care. With robots already assisting in various surgeries, few other AI systems used in medical sectors are WOEBOT,DA VINCI, PARO etc. As of now, there is always a high skilled surgeon in total control of the robots. It is believed that we have to still go a long way before robots have the sensitivity to perform surgeries on their own. They lack the common sense and the experience that humans possess. Thus a balance between human and machine is required. Read more at: https://community.nasscom.in/communities/iot-ai/artificial-intelligence-in-the-healthcare-sector.html

Understanding Sentiment Analysis

In the era of extracting insights from data, Sentiment Analysis is used to compute opinions, sentiments, views, etc. expressed in text format. Text polarity which recognizes sentiment inclination of text as positive or negative, Ranking (numbers in a range) the sentiment of the texts and Aspect based sentiment analysis which identify sentiments towards specific aspects in text are three broad divisions of problems in sentiment analysis. Supervised learning based sentiment analysis first trains and then tests the data. Unsupervised learning based sentiment analysis require sentiment dictionaries which can be created by lexicons or by a corpus based approach. Application of linguistic and statistical methods, training domain adapted models, aiming for aspect based sentiment analysis, identification of biometrics, images and sound as sources of sentiment data, etc. are some useful pieces of information shared in the blog. Contextual understanding, sentiment ambiguity and texts involving sarcasm and comparatives pose serious threats to performance of sentiment analysis system.

Big Data and Trends

A large number of tables with thousands of rows and columns. Data keeps flowing in from multiple live sources and is rapidly changing . This is what characterizes Big Data. Datasets are becoming vast and hence more complex for analysis. Without the correct tools,it would be difficult to use this data to draw insights. In this regard,three trends have come to the forefront- IoT,querying techniques and cloud computing.The advent of IoT has digitised everything. There are sensors and wires that chanel data which is then manipulated and analyzed to get results.Querying data i.e. extracting information from data is the first step before analysis and Cloud has come to play a major role in data storage.

Artificial Intelligence Paving the Way for Cancer Diagnosis.

AI is redefining the way oncologists look at cancer treatments.Deep learning has proven useful in understanding the trajectory of tumors in the distinctive case of cancers . According to two doctors,AI is making its mark in the healthcare industry.CNN(convoluted neural networks) have been trained to recognize and categorize cancers.CNN is used to diagnose tumor volume and segment tumor with higher precision. They have an advantage over semi-automatic methods,because the former can independently identify common features. Studying and interpretation of sample slides are slow and unreliable. DNN can be used to quicken the process and give robust results.A deep learning model teaches itself and becomes more accurate as it studies clinical data so it can predefine the form that a tumor will take.AI in healthcare has revolutionized diagnostic methods that aid better treatment.

Are we learning data science the right way?

In the words of Favio Vazquez, “Data Science is not just knowing some programming languages,math,statistics and having domain knowledge.’’Data science enables a person to evaluate the data and predict the present and future of the world. The solution to the optimization problems must add value to the business or organization. Mastering the craft is what it takes to be a successful data scientist. Having a good knowledge of statistics or math is never enough; practicing hard so that one can apply the tools to solve real business problem is the key. Interpretation is an important part of data science. Through modeling, we can decode the complex data and transform it into something useful and simple. Finally questioning and analyzing our understanding make us better learners.  Read more at: https://medium.com/swlh/the-3-biggest-mistakes-on-learning-data-science-f782e1a8abec

The emerging role of memes in social media marketing

Apart from breaking the internet and keeping people entertained, memes play an important role in social media marketing. Correct memes make businesses socially relevant. However before using memes one must become familiar with it and know the proper use. Misusing a meme can have an exact opposite impact on the business. Identifying the target audience is another important factor. It is futile to use those memes that customers cannot relate to.  Memes should be used sparingly- they should help enhance the content of the company on social media.Creating original memes instead of sharing the popular ones can help promote the brand more effectively. Hence memes can be a great idea for social media marketing if used in the right way. Making audiences laugh and keeping them satisfied can help build customers’ trust on the brand and hence the company.Read more at: https://www.business2community.com/social-media/how-to-use-memes-in-your-social-media-marketing-02208299

Artificial Intelligence-Is Humanity under threat?

With Google describing it as “Intelligence exhibited by machines’’, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the ability of a machine to think and learn smartly like humans. With its extensive use in business, industries, healthcare, it has become an indispensable part of our lives, making it fun and easy. With the world pacing rapidly, can we think of day in our lives without a Google assistant or a Siri or an Amazon Alexa? AI has the potential of bringing about changes and development that is beyond human imagination. However it remains highly doubtful if AI can solve issues like poverty and epidemics. AI can be a potential job destroyer boosting unemployment and inequality. Having said that, we should remember that nothing can beat human understanding and problem solving skills. Afterall we live in a world where relationship is the priority. By keeping us updated and gaining the necessary knowledge we can definitely survive in a world of transformational change!

ROLE OF MACHINE LEARNING IN BUSINESS ANALYTICS

    Considering how stubborn established companies are with their business operations, introducing Machine Learning which will bring a difference in business environments and in how people work, is extremely difficult. Data Science, AI and Machine Learning are different concepts where Machine Learning helps the other two prosper. It is a means of programming an algorithm wherein businesses feed in examples of real data. According to Maxim Scherbak, the author of this article, the new task for ML-driven organizations is preparing data for Machine Learning models. This implies that it will make Business Analysts different rather than making them redundant. For successful implementation of Machine Learning algorithms (which are mostly viewed as black boxes) they need to be backed by thorough testing. Leaving rule based approaches behind, businesses need to learn to trust these algorithms to shine in the era of AI.

Benefits of A/B Testing to Mobile Developers

A/B testing (also known as Split testing or bucket testing) is mostly used by websites and mobile apps as an effective data based method to test and compare alternatives wherein one variant’s significantly better performance proves its efficacy and suggests its implementation. To run A/B test, after deciding the objective, the variants of the landing page are to be determined, where the variations should differ only in the element that is to be tested. The test, then needs to be performed to compare how the users respond to the variations followed by reviewing the results and making changes based on the results. Some of the benefits of A/B testing to mobile developers are higher conversion rates, analysis of engagement metrics, decision making based on data and statistics, ability to view app store experience from user’s point of view, better use of resources, insights into customer behavior, etc. Ultimately A/B testing makes businesses improve if they run multiple experiments and understand their users’ behavior.

Artificial Intelligence in Medical Science

Last fifty years have seen great advancements in the medical field but along with it came hand in hand the errors in interpretation of medical scan reports, with 2% false positive rates and 25% false negative rates. AI, however, has come forth for rescue. While there have been arguments that deep learning would replace radiologists soon now, it is nothing more than a myth. With deep learning, the doctors would be able to detect the problems quickly and operate accordingly. One example is Zebra Medical Vision which has helped doctors for five years now in making the right decisions by developing deep learning algorithms for interpretation of medical images and working with data. It will help automate every visual aspect of medicine, help doctors by giving them a second opinion and also provide assistance and augmentation in case of lack of any skill. With such feedbacks, the probability of correct diagnosis increases many folds. The augmentation of Artificial Intelligence in the medical fields will be revolutionary.

Advancement of the advanced technology

With the advancement of technology, the advancement in the hacking sector has also taken place. All types of data are being hacked and misused. To solve this problem, biometrics have come into the play. Smart phones already have finger print and face and voice recognition facilities. These features will now come in the financial sector which would disable hacking or duplication (as can be done with ids and passwords) and hence keeps the data safe. The recent big problem of hacking of the ATMs can be curbed using the biometric technology. Beyond physical characteristics, behavioral biometrics can also track how a consumer swipes a mobile screen or uses a keyboard and recognize fraudulent activities. However, the institutions are not that flexible in terms of adopting the new technology due to coordination problems. The customers, on the other hand, are keen to use this new technology which keeps them safe.
