Is Virtualization, a Private Cloud, or a Public Cloud Solution Best for Your Business?

Virtualization and cloud computing are terms that even some IT professionals use interchangeably. However, cloud computing and virtualization are technically distinct, powerful technologies that can both make your IT systems more secure, agile, and cost-efficient. To learn more about the relationship between virtualization and cloud computing and find out which solutions are right for your…

Implementing Machine Learning Algorithms in Octave

Experimenting With ML in Octave Before moving on to how to use machine learning (ML) to solve classification problems (sometimes also called selection problems), let’s take some time to implement one of the algorithms we reviewed previously. We’ll be using GNU Octave to implement the various algorithms we discuss in this blog. Octave is a…

Machine Learning Math: Understanding Classification Problems

In our previous blog posts, we covered regression problems where we’re trying to predict the value of our target function. In regression problems, our target function is a real-valued function, and we’re trying to compute a real number that estimates its value at given data points. In the next couple of posts, we’ll cover classification problems,…

The Most Common IT Disasters (and How to Avoid Them)

IT disasters come in all shapes and sizes. Fortunately, the right disaster recovery solution can cover almost any contingency. In this article, we’ll discuss some common sources of IT disasters and explain how your business can navigate them without coming to a halt.

How Edge Computing and Cloud Computing Work Together With the Internet of Things (IoT)

The possibility of cost-effective edge computing has only recently become a reality. Sensors and computing hardware are becoming smaller, more powerful, and cheaper. Meanwhile, machine learning and analytics have become exponentially more advanced in recent years. And both consumers and business leaders are beginning to realize the limitations of cloud computing. At the same time,…

Drive New Business Value With Microsoft Azure IoT Central

The internet of things (IoT) is quickly becoming a major driver of value for forward-thinking and innovative companies, but many businesses are struggling to keep up. In fact, according to a 2017 study by Cisco, three out of four IoT device implementations fail due to issues like technical challenges, security failures, and fundamental flaws in…

Improve Customer Service With Automated Chat and Machine Learning

Research from the global consulting company Gartner shows that by 2020, chatbots and other automated solutions will handle 85% of customer service interactions. Companies are transitioning to automated customer service for many reasons. For example, it offers faster response times, can predict customer service issues, and is increasingly cost-effective. Additionally, when coupled with artificial intelligence…

The Role of Error Functions in Machine Learning

Defining Error Functions in Machine Learning Algorithms In our last blog post on machine learning and mathematics, we defined an error function as follows: Next, we found a w that minimizes this error function, and we used that w to define our linear function that approximates our target function: g(x) = w ⋅ x It…

Why Do AI and Machine Learning Matter for My Business?

  Machine learning has an enormous range of applications, and many of them already show up in our daily lives. When a dating app matches you with a potential partner, when a search engine suggests alternate search terms, or when an online shopping site recommends products based on your past purchases, machine learning is at…
