Low-Code vs. No-Code

John Rymer, VP and Principal Analyst at Forrester, published a video, in which he stresses the difference between “Low-Code” and “No-Code” application development platforms. While many BR&DM products today may justifiably claim that they offer low-code platforms for business people to create their decision-making applications, you hardly can point to one that is actually “No-Code”, that according to John “does not require any coding in 100% of the time”.

Agile Lipstick…

Do you agree with this LinkedIn article: “Many Organisations are just applying Agile Lipstick i.e. making superficial or cosmetic changes in a futile attempt to disguise the true nature of the challenges their Organisation face“? Link

Undecidability in Machine Learning

There are a number of technical maths questions that are known to be ‘undecidable’ when a statement cannot be proved either true or false using standard mathematical language. Recently a team of mathematicians proved that “Learnability can be Undecidable” where “learnability” is defined as the ability to make predictions about a large data set by sampling a small number of data points. At the end it comes to a question whether an algorithm can generalize its knowledge. For instance, given the answer to a ‘yes or no’ question “Does this image show a cat?” for a limited number of objects, an algorithm should decide the answer for new objects. Link

Gen – a new AI programming language that goes beyond deep learning

A team of MIT researchers announced a novel probabilistic-programming language named “Gen.” Users write models and algorithms from multiple fields where AI techniques are applied — such as computer vision, robotics, and statistics — without having to deal with equations or manually write high-performance code. Gen also lets expert researchers write sophisticated models and inference algorithms — used for prediction tasks — that were previously infeasible. Link

Association Rule Mining

Users who bought this… Also bought this…‘ can be considered as the statement of this generation. There is not a single shopping application not showcasing this feature to gain more from the buyers. We humans always look for more similar things which we like. This rule is another by-product of Machine Learning called ‘Association Rules’. Association Rule Mining is based on two set of rules:  1) Look for the transactions where there is a bundle or relevance of association of secondary items to the primary items above a certain threshold of frequency; 2) Convert them into ‘Association Rules’.
