Emergent // Future – Humans in the Loop, AI in the Cloud, and Projects at Home

Issue 47
This week we check out what it means to have machine learning systems with
humans in the loop, how AI in the cloud is the next frontier for Amazon, Microsoft and Google, and our favorite reads and some projects to try at home.

Humans in the Loop

Though we’ve seen advances in the quality and accuracy of pure machine learning systems, the most accurate paradigms are those that use “human-in-the-loop.”

We’re not talking about just labeling data here.

By adding humans to correct results, we enable the machine learning system to actively learn and correct itself from classifications it initially got wrong. With every iteration (and more classified data) the classification model gets more accurate.


AI in the Cloud

The next cloud battle between Amazon, Microsoft and Google is about bringing AI to all businesses.

As companies try to better analyze, optimize, and predict everything from sales cycles to product development, they are turning to AI techniques like deep learning.

The cloud infrastructure market is worth $25 billion and democratizing access to AI could decide which tech giant emerges as the ultimate winner.
