Leading hardware engineering at a company known for its vast portfolio of software applications and systems is not as strange as it sounds, as the Microsoft Cloud depends on hardware as the foundation of trust, reliability, capacity, and performance, to make it possible for Microsoft and our customers to achieve more. The underlying infrastructure that powers …

Artificial intelligence systems may be able to complete tasks quickly, but that doesn’t mean they always do so fairly. If the datasets used to train machine-learning models contain biased data, it is likely the system could exhibit that same bias when it makes decisions in practice. For instance, if a dataset contains mostly images of …

As HR systems have evolved, organizations have collected and uploaded nearly everything there is to know about each of their employees. From compensation, home addresses, and bank account information to national identification numbers, disability status, and performance data—organizations host a substantial amount of high-risk data on their workforce. This data is highly valuable for organizations …

While cybercrime gets a lot of attention from law enforcement and the media these days, I’ve been documenting a less high-tech threat emerging in recent months: a surge in stolen checks. Criminals are increasingly targeting U.S. Postal Service and personal mailboxes to pilfer filled-out checks and sell them over the internet using social media platforms. …

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou, American poet, and activist If this quote is accurate, then understanding customers’ sentiment is essential for business success. If a company fails to make a good impression, clients will leave. …

What’s New: Mobileye is sitting on a virtual treasure trove of driving data – some 200 petabytes worth. When combined with Mobileye’s state-of-the-art computer vision technology and extremely capable natural language understanding (NLU) models, the dataset can deliver thousands of results within seconds, even for incidents that fall into the “long tail” of rare conditions and …

A trio of researchers that includes William Kuszmaul — a computer science PhD student at MIT — has made a discovery that could lead to more efficient data storage and retrieval in computers. The team’s findings relate to so-called “linear-probing hash tables,” which were introduced in 1954 and are among the oldest, simplest, and fastest …

Researchers from the National University of Singapore have concluded that the more explainable AI becomes, the easier it will become to circumvent vital privacy features in machine learning systems. They also found that even when a model is not explainable, it’s possible to use explanations of similar models to ‘decode’ sensitive data in the non-explainable model. The research, …

The challenge is putting people first in any and all AI projects. AI practitioners provide recommendations for building a people-centric, yet AI-driven culture. As the people charged with designing, building, and deploying artificial intelligence — from data engineers to developers — recognize, AI is a powerful mechanism for amplifying human knowledge, skills, and efficiency. But …

Internet of Things has become quite a buzzword these days. But what exactly is IoT, and how can it help you grow your business to new heights? Internet of Things is one of the pillars of what’s being called the fourth industrial revolution. IoT is not a single technology but rather involves numerous technologies that …
