Data Science

Just how much do design and data science collaborate?
About 21% say data scientists attend readouts of qualitative research findings or attend research sessions at least monthly (e.g., usability testing, customer interviews, ethnography, etc.). Just under 20% include data science and analytics team members in design sketching sessions at least monthly. To me, this says that there's little ... @ 2020-01-24T18:15:00

A single number aids biomedical data scientists in finding deadly cancer cells
Aaron Newman, PhD, assistant professor of biomedical data science and a member of the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine The study's finding is also significant because identifying stem cells of various tissue types is an important step toward regenerating damaged or malfunctioning tissues. What the scientists showed is ... @ 2020-01-24T17:50:00

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Apple Is Quietly Expanding Its Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem
recently acquired Xnor.ai, a Seattle-based start-up that develops low-power, edge-based artificial intelligence tools. Apple didn't disclose the terms of the deal, but GeekWire claimed that the deal was worth about $200 million. @ 2020-01-24T10:30:00
Washington state wants to regulate artificial intelligence, as Microsoft lobbies for new rules
Washington state could become a pioneer in regulating artificial intelligence if lawmakers, and homegrown tech giant Microsoft, get their way. A series of bills introduced this legislative session seek to blaze a trail for this new frontier of technological innovation. The legislation focuses on biometric screening and digital profiling. @ 2020-01-24T18:23:00
OK, computer: Let's bring text-generating artificial intelligence into the classroom
Artificial intelligence-based (AI) programs are quickly improving at writing convincingly on many topics, for virtually no cost. It's likely in a few years they'll be churning out C-grade worthy essays for students. We could try to ban them, but this software is highly accessible. It would be a losing battle. Long-form writing, especially essay ... @ 2020-01-24T14:27:00
