The time is now for the synthetic data revolution

We’re going into the final sprint of the year. Time will fly by as we get stuck into the festive season, and before we know it, we’ll have a brand new year stretching out ahead of us. Not that I like to wish time away, but I can’t wait for 2022. That’s because it looks set to be a huge year for synthetic data. Forbes picked it in a list of the 5 biggest data science trends for 2022, while Gartner put synthetic data at number one in its top strategic predictions for 2022 and beyond. If we’re talking about the passing of time, going from founding Mindtech four years ago to the…

ACR urges radiologists to take charge of artificial intelligence development, protect patient safety

“Radiologists must prepare to serve as the imaging AI experts, gatekeepers of which AI technologies are purchased by their practices, and monitors of AI performance in patient care,” Keith Dreyer, DO, PhD, the Data Science Institute’s chief science officer, said in a statement. “Not doing so is to risk patient safety and algorithm effectiveness.”

ACR said the first federated learning experiment will kick off in early 2022, hoping to produce a “highly accurate” COVID-19 classification model through industry collaboration. Participants will gain access to de-identified…

Fashion design education matters for the metaverse

In 1964, Arthur C Clarke, science writer and futurist, predicted
“the invention to end all inventions”. He called “the replicator”, a
duplicating machine to create copies of anything at any time:
“Confronted with such a device, society will probably sink into a kind
of gluttonous barbarism because everybody would want unlimited
quantities of everything since nothing would cost anything”, warned

Sixty years on, replicators are the norm. In the physical realm, we
have 3D printing machines recreating items from digital files, and
fast fashion making cheap copies on a large scale….

Data Science and Machine Learning’s Potential for Fraud Detection

The consumer marketplace has been a hot spot for fraud lately. This is due in part to the rise in more digitally focused transactions amid the pandemic and the evolving way we communicate with our banks. We’re seeing a rise in fraud risk surrounding applications that are newer to the market, like digital wallets, buy now pay later (BNPL), peer-to-peer (P2P) payments as well as those that have been in the market for a while such as bank transfers and card not present (CNP) payment methods. Consumers are attracted to these methods because they’re convenient, meaning…

Want to develop ethical AI? Then we need more African voices

Artificial intelligence (AI) was once the stuff of science fiction. But it’s becoming widespread. It is used in mobile phone technology and motor vehicles. It powers tools for agriculture and healthcare.But concerns have emerged about the accountability of AI and related technologies like machine learning. In December 2020 a computer scientist, Timnit Gebru, was fired from Google’s Ethical AI team. She had previously raised the alarm about the social effects of bias in AI technologies. For instance, in a 2018 paper Gebru and another researcher, Joy Buolamwini, had shown how facial…

Biden ‘Forgets’ To Close The Southern Border Against ‘Omicron’ Variant

Authored by Monica Showalter via AmericanThinker.com,Much has been made of the news that Joe Biden has shut the door to eight countries over the new ‘omicron’ COVID variant. AT deputy editor Andrea Widburg has an excellent piece today on that here.Some of the implications, of course, are vaguely comical. Biden’s White House medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the so-called “expert” and voice of “science” he touted was last seen recommending against the closure of air travel.Joe, of course, did it anyway, signaling that Fauci’s expertise to him is all about what’s politically…

Python is devouring data science

Back in 2015 I wrote that “Python’s data science training wheels increasingly lead to the R language,” suggesting that the more serious companies get about data science, the more they’ll want the heft of R. Boy, that perspective hasn’t aged well.In fact, as a recent Terence Shin analysis of more than 15,000 data scientist job postings suggests, Python adoption keeps growing even as the more specialist R language is in decline. This isn’t to suggest that data scientists will drop R anytime soon. More likely, we’ll continue to see both Python and R…

11 Data Science Programming Languages to Know in 2021

In Drew Conway’s famous Venn diagram of data science skills, programming chops might be the most elusive target. New libraries and packages are constantly emerging — and sometimes even entire new programming languages enter the stage.

True, Python continues to dominate. But despite its widespread footing and ease of use, it hardly holds a monopoly in data science. And the alternatives extend well beyond R, despite what partisans in the tired Python vs. R debate might have you think.

Excel, Python, and the future of data science

The world of data science is awash in open source: PyTorch, TensorFlow, Python, R, and much more. But the most widely used tool in data science isn’t open source, and it’s usually not even considered a data science tool at all.It’s Excel, and it’s running on your laptop.Excel is “the most successful programming system in the history of homo sapiens,” says Anaconda CEO Peter Wang in an interview “because regular ‘muggles’ can take this tool…put their data in it…ask their questions…[and] model things.” In short, it’s easy to be…
