It doesn’t come as a massive surprise, then, that Gartner has predicted that AI technologies will be in almost every software product by as soon as 2020.

Automation Tools Promise to Accelerate Machine Learning

Dreaming up obscure insults might be a good way to pass the time in a bar, but it’s a strange day job. Nonetheless, it’s a serious business if you are trying to train a machine to spot unacceptable online behaviour. Data scientists not only need to provide training data; they also need to describe which language is likely to offend within that data. The process, known as annotation, is just one of the laborious tasks data scientists face that IT firms are promising to make easier with automation. Amazon, Microsoft, Google and IBM are offering a raft of technologies to automate machine learning processes (see box). But smaller firms are providing more niche technologies.

Industry Spotlight: Web Development Tools, Frameworks Evolve Quickly

Changes in technology have led to changes in how web applications are created. And that has caused some consternation among web developers.

A decade ago, the development choice was to use .NET or Java, which meant WPF or ASP.NET for Microsoft developers. Java has been a bread-and-butter language for a long time, so that’s a safe bet. And Microsoft was known for 10-plus years of support for technologies, and even when they changed, the company always made sure everything was backward-compatible. So that was also seen as a safe bet.

Why Future Applications Must Be Cognitive-First

Software, like bread, has changed. Up until somewhere around the 1960s or 1970s, bread came in one packet, made of one type of flour, formed into one basic shape – across most world cultures.

In the modern era of personalization and consumerism, that type of standard product or service delivery clearly doesn’t exist anymore. Choice, has become everything.

Imagine – A Chatbot You Actually Want To Chat With? Here’s How It’s Possible

As consumers, do we look to the experience or do we look to the result when dealing with brands?

An enjoyable interaction with a brand counts for nothing if we don’t end up with what we want, no matter how charming the sales person was. However, the same can be said if we end up with the thing we want but only after a charmless, cold and unenjoyable experience to get to that point.
