Artificial Intelligence with Oren Etzioni

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/AI_Research_Edited_2.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Research in artificial intelligence takes place mostly at universities and large corporations, but both of these types of institutions have constraints that cause the research to proceed a certain way. In a university, basic research might be hindered by lack of funding. At a big corporation, the researcher might be encouraged to study a domain that is not squarely in the interest of

Data Validation with Dan Morris

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/datavalidation_edited_2.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Data Validation is the process of ensuring that data is accurate. In many software domains, an application is pulling in large quantities of data from external sources. That data will eventually be exposed to users, and it needs to be correct. Radius Intelligence is a company that aggregates data on small businesses. In order to ensure that business addresses and phone numbers are

Machine Learning for Sales with Per Harald Borgen

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/Xeneta.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download Machine learning has become simplified. Similar to how Ruby on Rails made web development approachable, scikit-learn takes away much of the frustrating aspects of machine learning, and lets the developer focus on building functionality with high-level APIs.   Per Harald Borgen is a developer at Xeneta. He started programming fairly recently, but has already built a machine learning application that cuts down on

Machine Learning in Healthcare with David Kale

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/healthcareML_Edited.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download “Building a model to predict disease and deploying that in the wild – the bar for success is much higher there than, say, deciding what ad to show you.” Diagnosing illness today requires the trained eye of a doctor. With machine learning, we might someday be able to diagnose illness using only a data set. Today on Software Engineering Daily, we are joined

Machine Learning for Businesses with Joshua Bloom

“You’ve got software engineers who are interested in machine learning, and think what they need to do is just bring in another module and then that will solve their problem. It’s particularly important for those people to understand that this is a different type of beast.”
