ML World is Media Partner of Internet of Things Event

ML World

ML World is Media Partner of Internet of Things Event, which takes place on Jun 08, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

About ML World
A social network for machine learning enthusiasts. Machine learning is a subfield of computer science that evolved from the study of pattern recognition and computational learning theory in artificial intelligence. Machine learning explores the study and construction of algorithms that can learn from and make predictions on data. Such algorithms operate by building a model from example inputs in order to make data-driven predictions or decisions, rather than following strictly static program instructions.

“Diagnostic engineers, do they have a future?”- Presented by Alexander Hill, Senseye

“Diagnostic engineers, do they have a future?”- Presented by Alexander Hill, Senseye, at Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, Nov 15 2016, High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Among the many promises of the Industrial IoT is the panacea of perfect prescriptive maintenance; machines themselves telling maintainers exactly when and what to maintain. Advances in cloud computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence are edging us towards to this ideal, yet human intuition and experience is a difficult thing to replace. Alexander Hill, Co-founder of Senseye the ‘Uptime as a Service’ company, will explore some of the challenges of creating an automatic diagnostic engineer and if humans still have a place in the fourth industrial revolution. Continue reading ““Diagnostic engineers, do they have a future?”- Presented by Alexander Hill, Senseye”

Google announces new machine learning centre in Europe

Google has announced a research group in Switzerland that will be dedicated to the field of machine learning.

As its name suggests, machine learning involves systems that can learn things and come up with predictions from sets of data, without being specifically programmed to do so. It’s essential to what we currently think of as “artificial intelligence.” Continue reading “Google announces new machine learning centre in Europe”

Researchers Use Machine Learning to Identify Genetic Disease Patients

In years gone by there was Where’s Waldo? Then there was Finding Nemo. Today, on a more serious note but important even to small children, there is FIND FH.

FH, or familial hypercholesterolemia, is a genetic predisposition to very high levels of LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) that may first manifest itself as a fatal heart attack at a premature age. There are therapies, statin-based, that reliably improve outcomes for patients with FH. But there is a big problem: 90 out of 100 patients who have FH do not know they have it or perhaps even what it is. Many physicians are equally in the dark about the disease and therefore do not screen patients for it. FIND FH hopes to change all that.

Tim de Wolf, Koning & Hartman, Presents: ‘From IoT for consumers, to Smart Industry for industrial companies. Smart made Simple’

Internet of Things. We can all imagine the intelligent chain of events: You walk out of the office at the end of the day, your phone registers the time and concludes that you are going home. The heater or air condition in your car was initiated 15 minutes ago and with your estimated time of arrival given the traffic, your house will be heated upon arrival and the bathtub will be filled. Everything automated. For us as consumers the added benefit of IoT is clear and apparent. The question is, how does it influence innovation for businesses? Koning & Hartman, in the B2B Dutch Industry, devised with its partners a plan to adopt Smart Industry. Simple and concrete steps an industrial company can take today, for the Smart Industry of the future.

Goal of the presentation: provide an inspiring and clear view on defining Smart Industry, and presenting steps to achieve it. Continue reading “Tim de Wolf, Koning & Hartman, Presents: ‘From IoT for consumers, to Smart Industry for industrial companies. Smart made Simple’”

Gartner’s 2015 Hype Cycle Special Report Reveals IoT Among Most Hyped Technologies

The journey to digital business continues as the key theme of Gartner, Inc.’s “Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies, 2015.” New to the Hype Cycle this year is the emergence of technologies that support what Gartner defines as digital humanism — the notion that people are the central focus in the manifestation of digital businesses and digital workplaces.  Continue reading “Gartner’s 2015 Hype Cycle Special Report Reveals IoT Among Most Hyped Technologies”
