Review for 20 March 2017

Below are some of the interesting links I Tweeted about recently.

  1. We will get closer to AIs, but I think we will go thru many iterations of wearables before we get to implants: https://techcrunch.com/2017/02/13/elon-musk-reiterates-the-need-for-brain-computer-interfaces-in-the-age-of-ai/
  2. Overview of 23 different types of regression: http://www.datasciencecentral.com/profiles/blogs/23-types-of-regression 
  3. While AI is a convenient catch-all term, machine learning, AI, ANN, are really different things: http://www.datasciencecentral.com/profiles/blogs/difference-between-machine-learning-data-science-ai-deep-learning 
  4. Possibly an application of deep learning ANN? Nest cameras can now recognise doors and when people enter view: http://www.theverge.com/2017/2/14/14609310/nest-cam-door-recognition-alerts-feature 
  5. Not sure what, if any, AI is present here, but better customer service is probably useful: https://techcrunch.com/2017/02/13/salesforce-brings-ai-to-service-cloud/
