Research Blog: Using Machine Learning to predict parking difficulty

"When Solomon said there was a time and a place for everything he had not encountered the problem of parking his automobile." -Bob Edwards, Broadcast Journalist Much of driving is spent either stuck in traffic or looking for parking. With products like Google Maps and Waze, it is our long-standing goal to help people navigate the roads easily and efficiently. But until now, there wasn’t a tool to address th ...

Beyond vectors: efficiency in Natural Language Processing

NYU MSDS student Raul Delgado Sanchez talks diffusion maps When you text a friend saying ‘I’ll fall you later’, how does your iPhone know to correct ‘fall’ to ‘call’? Auto-correct owes its prowess to a field that continues to gain paramount importance among computer scientists, and is an especially lively area of study at our very own Center for Data Science: Natural Language Processing (NLP). Generally spe ...

Ethics — the next frontier for artificial intelligence | TechCrunch

AI’s next frontier requires ethics built through policy. Will Donald Trump deliver? With one foot in its science fiction past and the other in the new frontier of science and tech innovations, AI occupies a unique place in our cultural imagination. Will we live into a future where machines are as intelligent — or frighteningly, more so — than humans? We have already witnessed AI predict the outcome of the l ...

IBM Wants To Build AI That Isn’t Socially Awkward

Though artificial intelligence experts may cringe at the portrayals of humanlike AI in science fiction, some researchers are nudging us closer to those visions. "I think it's useful that your user interface not only understand your emotions, your personality, your tone, your motivations, but that it also have a set of emotions, personality, motivations," says Rob High, the CTO of IBM Watson. "I think that m ...

How startups can compete with enterprises in artificial intelligence and machine learning | TechCrunch

When I woke up this morning, I asked my assistant a simple question: “Siri, is it going to rain today?” Siri understood my intent, pulled the local weather data via an API and answered me in less than two seconds: “There’s no rain in the forecast for today.” In the not-too-distant past, this kind of human-computer interaction would have blown away technologists and delighted consumers — but in 2016, it’s no ...

IBM’s Watson Has a New Project: Fighting Cybercrime | WIRED

IBM’S WATSON SUPERCOMPUTER hardly needs any more resumé-padding. It’s already won Jeopardy, written a cookbook, and dabbled in revolutionizing healthcare. The next stop in its storied career? Tackling cybercrime. Today, IBM announced that Watson is taking its cognitive learning chops to the cloud, where it’ll apply them to analyzing, identifying, and (hopefully) preventing cybersecurity threats. But first, ...

At Stitch Fix, data scientists and A.I. become personal stylists | CIO

With Stitch Fix, users don't go shopping for their clothes. Professional stylists do the job for them and the personal shopping service ships the new clothes to their door. The stylists aren't working on their own, though; they're using artificial intelligence (A.I.) and a team of about 60 data scientists. That combo is behind the success at Stitch Fix, a San Francisco-based online subscription and shopping ...
