This AI Technology Week shares how with the advent of neural network models for NLP, the focus of feature engineering is shifted towards model architecture engineering. The use of neural networks allowed features to be learned while the models were being trained. Whereas, A team from DeepMind and Google Research used neural networks to automatically create efficient heuristics from a collection of MIP examples in the new study Solving Mixed Integer Programs (MIP) Using Neural Networks.
Companies are increasingly depending on artificial intelligence to streamline the hiring process through job-matching platforms and AI-powered games and interviews. Moreover, At the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020, national Olympic teams will use machine learning to gain an advantage over their competitors. As from the tech startups: Fenix, a micro-mobility firm, paid $5 million for Palm, a shared e-scooter company in Turkey.
10) Prompt-based learning can make language models more capable
Supervised learning, where AI models are trained on input data annotated for a particular output until they can detect the underlying relationships between the inputs and outputs, plays a major role in natural language processing (NLP).

4) Artificial intelligence is bringing the dead back to ‘life’ — but should it?
In recent years, technology has been employed to resurrect the dead, mostly in the form of departed celebrities. Carrie Fisher was digitally rendered to reprise her role as Princess Leia in the latest “Star Wars” film.

3) How to do machine learning without an army of data scientists
The artificial intelligence/machine learning software development and deployment lifecycle are still very nascent. The challenge of moving models into production is exacerbated by demand for speed and a shortage of qualified ML engineers. But there’s hope that things may soon get better.

1) AI-driven knowledge management – Why it matters to contact centers and how they can achieve it
The Austrian management consultant, Peter Drucker said: “knowledge has become the resource rather than a resource…”. Certainly, knowledge management is at the heart of the contact center’s role, bridging the gap between customers’ inquiries and the facts, which will resolve their problems. But it is not just an important challenge, it’s a very difficult one.
