Machine Learning and AI have clearly taken off and demand for Machine Learning Engineers is at an all time high.

This is happening now due to the confluence of evolving technology and massive amounts of data. This article from edureka goes over the most  amazing Machine Learning Projects you should definitely know about and experiment with.

Here’s an example that anyone drowning in email can relate to:

Business Challenge: Motion Studio is the largest Radio production house in Europe. Having a revenue of more than a Billion Dollars, the company has decided to launch a new reality show: RJ Star. Response to the show is unprecedented and the company is flooded with voice clips. You as an ML expert have to classify the voice as either male/female so that the first level of filtration is quicker.

It doesn’t take a fortune teller to see that AI on IoT is going to be where the next wave of innovation and opportunity is going to be.

Here’s an interesting piece in VentureBeat that explores the space and why it’s taking off now.

“We’re seeing things today that people have always seen in movies and dreamed of doing at home become ordinary everyday use cases for users on their smartphones,” says Jeff Gehlhaar, Vice President, Technology and Head of AI Software Platforms at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

That includes always-on capabilities, for instance, smartphone assistant features like voice wake-up, always-on noise suppression, language understanding, disambiguation of circumstance, or ability to hear and understand you at varying distances from your device’s speaker. It also powers on-demand, high-performance smartphone capabilities such as instantaneous language translation and more.

The battle for top talent in the AI space is heating up with Apple looking to boost their AI stable. This reminds me of the 90’s when major tech firms would poach talent from each other with impunity. It’s interesting to see how “hot” AI skills have become.

Artificial Intelligence Apple has poached another top engineer from Google as it continues to grow its artificial intelligence and machine learning divisions, with Google’s Dr. Ian Goodfellow having left his role as a “Senior Staff Research Scientist” with Google to join Apple as a “Director of Machine Learning” in […]
