AI4DEVS: Issue #1

The evolution of artificial intelligence from magic art to engineering practice

In the last few years, machine learning has become mainstream and has been widely adopted by data scientists and a growing number of developers, architects, and decision-makers. This new age of AI makes tools and models more accessible to everyone without data science skills, but understanding these techniques will soon be the core foundation of any software project.
When practitioners shift from a wizard pulling magic spells from an arcane book to an engineering professional, a change of mind is required to discover a new world of opportunities and many use cases.

AI4DEVS is a weekly selection of curated AI news selected from the internet by a community of professionals to help you add a bit of AI in your next project or better understand its applications.

Here are our top picks of the week!

Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) have always been some of the most promising fields of AI, with many applications, even making a contact center able to diagnose COVID-19 using managed services.

AI is becoming a tool to be used in everyday applications. Nothing more than a showcase about adding text analytics capabilities into an existing workflow makes the point.

Finally, if you want to be amazed by what AI can do today, check out this video about OpenAI playing hide and seek in a simulated environment. Impressive!
