Overcoming the Data and Talent Challenges of AI in Life Sciences

1/23/2018
More
In this episode of AI in industry, Innoplexus CEO Gunjan Bhardwaj explores how pharma giants are working to overcome two critical challenges with AI: Data, and talent. Pharmaceutical data is challenging because the same term (say "EGFR") might be referred to as a "protein", a "biomarker", or a "target". Gunjan explores how this kind of relevance and context for data - and how pharma companies may need to hire the talent issues involved with making life sciences and computer sciences teams...

Machine Learning with Less Training Data - Approaches and Trends

12/3/2017
More
Expert systems and machine learning are two ends of a spectrum working to solve similar problems quite differently. One one hand you have if-then scenarios and a logical approach, and on the other you have vast neural networks and a big data approach. Some companies exist to try and bridge the gap between the if-then rule systems and the massive piles of data. They hope to find a middle ground of sorts, one that mitigates their individual disadvantages. One such company is Montreal’s...

Natural language processing has gained more and more attention with the raise of (or rather, the "fad" of) chatbots. Despite the flurry of press releases from companies about their conversational agents (only a few of which seem to be delivering real business value), few business leaders understand the value of NLP for customer service, sales enablement, or eCommerce. In this week's episode of AI in Industry we interview Narjes Boufaden, computational linguistics PhD and CEO of Keatext,...

Computer Vision for Body Language - How it Works and How it Could be Used

9/23/2017
More
As a human, we can often understand the mood, intention, and future action of another person just by looking at them. We see their posture, their facial expression, where their eyes are focused, and we can get a decent understanding of what they might do next. The problem of computer vision for body language is a much harder problem to solve, but we are indeed making progress. Our guest this week is Paul Kruszewski, an computer science PhD who's spent nearly the last 20 years focused on...

AI for Cameras and Computer Vision - with Algolux's Allan Benchetrit

9/16/2017
More
In the future, the vast majority of photos and videos recorded won't be seen and used by humans - they'll be seen and used by machines. This week we interview Allan Benchetrit, CEO at Algolux - a Montreal-based AI company focusing on computational imaging. If you take an image for a human being in a consumer application (maybe an iPhone app or a recreational DSLR camera), you probably want it to be visually appealing and clear to the human eye. As it turns out, machines don't need pretty...
