The skyrocketing salaries ($1m per year) of AI engineers is not a hype. It is the fact of current corporate world, where you will witness a shift that is inevitable.
We’ve already set our feet at the edge of the technological revolution. A revolution that is at the verge of altering the way we live and work. As the fact suggests, humanity has fundamentally developed human production in three revolutions, and we’re now entering the fourth revolution. In its scope, the fourth revolution projects a transformation that is unlike anything we humans have ever experienced.
The artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the functioning of the automotive industry. Autonomous vehicles might be the first thing coming to mind when thinking of an example on the impact of AI in the car industry, but it is not the only one. AI not only can improve vehicle performance but it also enhances their design process. This is precisely the aim of the UPSCALE project, applying Machine Learning techniques to Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) methods.
Historically, CAE tools have been an invaluable mean for product development in many industry sectors, in particular, in the automotive sector. Despite its notable contribution over all these years, there have been no major changes or significant improvements in their application. To break this pattern, the UPSCALE’s consortium aims at creating and applying machine learning-driven simulation workflows. This would reduce development time through speeding up simulation time by orders of magnitude in crash and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations. AI-CAE integration would lead to securing simulation results faster, cheaper and more accurately. Moreover, the objective of UPSCALE would also be, for CAE processes, to become fully automated and adapted as a software solution for the automotive industry.
Challenges of the project
Taking into account the large number of existing vehicles with different characteristics, one of the main challenges, for the project to succeed, is being able to feed and train AI algorithms with enough information to function. This is particularly challenging because until now AI and machine learning have been used to solve proof of concept simulation models, UPSCALE face the challenge of demonstrating that AI can also deal with real industrial simulation models, such as full-size vehicle aerodynamics or crash.
Big challenges require big responses and big solutions that is why UPSCALE consortium has already begun to work. From November 2018 until April 2022, thanks to funding obtained from Horizon 2020, the European Research and Innovation programme, a team composed of universities, research laboratories, European automotive OEMs, software companies and an AI-SME, specialized in machine learning, will be working to achieve the above-mentioned goal and make the European automotive industry more competitive. Will they succeed?

Ensemble learning or model ensembling, is a well-established set of machine learning and statistical techniques for improving predictive performance through the combination of different learning algorithms. The combination of the predictions from different models is generally more accurate than any of the individual models making up the ensemble. Ensemble methods come in different flavours and levels of complexity (for a review see https://arxiv.org/pdf/1106.0257.pdf), but here we focus on combining the predictions of multiple deep learning networks that have been previously trained.
Wow. I can not believe it has actually been four years since I launched our first AI related website.
The progress made this past 12 months has been amazing, and demonstrates the momentum we now have. Our mission remains focused on enabling people to learn more artificial intelligence, making the subject more accessible to everyone. Essentially Supporting the AI Community.
We have for the first four years been dedicated to individuals and this still remains a key part of our audience, however, we are seeing a great need to support businesses. Our Awards was always targeted to supporting AI companies, but now we need more and more traditional businesses wanting to know more about AI.

Today we will highlight signal processing applications using deep learning techniques. Deep Learning developed and evolved for image processing and computer vision applications, but it is now increasingly and successfully used on signal and time series data.
Deep learning for signal data typically requires preprocessing, transformation, and feature extraction steps that image processing applications often do not. While large high-quality image datasets can be created with relatively low-cost cameras, signal sets are harder to obtain and will usually suffer from large variability caused by wideband noise, interference, non-linear trends, jitter, phase distortion, and missing samples.
According to “MyCustomer” reports, 80% of all UK businesses will have a chatbot solution in place by the end of 2020.
The rise of artificial intelligence and the accessibility of disruptive technology in the current marketplace means that any company can take their business to the next level with an AI chatbot.
Unfortunately, brands from most industries are still facing a host of challenges when it comes to getting the full value out of intelligent solutions.
Here, we’re going to cover everything you need to know about the market for modern chatbot tools, and how they can help you to transform customer service.
Every year we bring a group of outstanding data science practitioners to Christ Church, Oxford, for an advanced, intensive course on AI. Among our delegates are the current and past Kaggle champions. Due to the advanced nature of the content, many of our delegates are senior industry leaders and decision makers with a lot of experience, many of them leading data science and AI teams or entire organisations. There are also many senior quants with decades of experience in finance, seeking to reposition towards AI.
The lectures are given by leading academics, including Dr. Paul Billion and Prof. Matthew Dixon, and industry-leading practitioners from finance, insurance, medicine, engineering, and beyond.
Our condensed, intensive, interactive five-day course will take our delegates from a brief overview of the mathematical foundations to current state of research and industry practice in ML/AI.
In addition to covering the depths of the theory, we work through real financial, medical, and engineering datasets, showing how highly nontrivial and non-obvious information can be extracted from them. In finance, this leads to superior alpha and better execution. In medicine, this leads to saving lives and money.
