A Brief Intro to Propositional Logic as the Foundation of Artificial Intelligence

If we want a machine to be intelligent enough to have a dialogue with us in natural language or do complex tasks like diagnosing a medical condition, or any problem-solving and decision making, then first the machine needs to become knowledgeable about the real word. Machine learning enables a machine to grow knowledgeable through automatic and experience-based learning without being explicitly programmed.

But the ability of automatic learning is feasible only if the machine can rightly interpret the information of our real world. However, a machine can’t understand our language, so the knowledge of the real world needs to be represented to the machine in the right manner that is readable to a computer system. Propositional logic is one of the simplest methods of knowledge representation to a machine.

Introduction to File Operations in Python | What are File Operations

A wide range of functions in Python is capable to cater the need of file operations such as opening, reading, writing, creating files et cetera. In the following guide, we will go through the basic yet most necessary operations which are highly useful during every file handling task.

For performing file operations, a file needs to be opened first. Then follows the necessary operations to be performed by the user on our file. After all the desired operations are performed, the file needs to be closed. Closing a file is necessary as it would save the changes made on our file from the current session.

XAI (EXplainable AI) – A Contextual Introduction

Data science is not just about solving business problems mathematically but it is also about telling a story to stakeholders. It is a joy when one can draw out the “OOHs” and “AAHs” as mental bulbs warmly glow into existence as the results of an analysis are understood. More often than not, such storytelling is not possible when one bakes algorithmic outputs into products.

Contextual AI: The Answer To Our Mis-Managed Recruitment Processes

Applicant tracking systems (ATSs) and recruiting management systems (RMSs) are the two AI-infused approaches to modern talent management that have gaps and limits. However, while AI-based platforms are critical for innovative outlooks to talent management, their implementation is fraught with difficulty. For example, a recent study by Harvard Business School (HBS) and Accenture discovered that due to the way the tracking systems are connected, over 10 million workers are eliminated from consideration. Similarly, according to a recent Wall Street Journal article, current talent management systems are operating as intended, screening millions of resumes for keywords and phrases that match job descriptions while excluding many qualified candidates.

Contextual AI : SAP/CAI

Contextual AI adds explainability to different stages of machine learning pipelines – data, training, and inference – thereby addressing the trust gap between such ML systems and their users. It does not refer to a specific algorithm or ML method — instead, it takes a human-centric view and approach to AI.

The What, Where, and Why of Contextual AI

What is contextual AI?
In a sentence: contextual AI takes a human approach to processing content. It allows AI systems, like chatbots and virtual assistants, to have a real-world interpretation of language, audio, video, and images so they can behave less like traditional computers and more like humans.

It’s what helps an AI recognize when an image is upside down, whether you’re happy or frustrated by the tone of your voice, or that the right answer to the question, “where did Doc send Einstein?” is, “one minute into the future” — not, “sorry, I don’t know that one.”

This is because contextual AI is capable of analyzing the cultural, historical, and situational aspects surrounding incoming data, then using that context to determine the most meaningful outcome for the end-user.

In human to machine (H2M) conversations, this outcome can be as simple as a chatbot using your location to direct you to the nearest laptop repair shop. In human to human (H2H) conversations, it could be anything from recognizing speakers, sentiments, and buyer’s intent, to adding valuable insights to real-time sales call transcriptions.

What Is Contextual Data and How to Collect It

At one time or another, we’ve all heard a famous quote misconstrued or taken out of context. And though Robert Frost might actually tell you to just pick any old path and not mourn “The Path Not Taken,” the paths you take toward understanding your customers and their broader contexts really do make all the difference.

According to Gartner analyst Melissa Davis:
