The 13th DecisionCAMP will be held next week on Sep 13-15 with the major scheme “INTELLIGENT DECISION SERVICES”. The registration is free and all registered attendees receive the proper Zoom URL or may get it on the Slack channel where they may ask questions and receive answers during and after the sessions. Each day starts at 9:00 AM EDT (15:00 CEST). There will be 15 presentations each starting on the top of the hour – see the complete Schedule. There will be two keynotes shared with the Declarative AI. To watch keynotes at 12:00 PM EDT you will need to temporarily switch to the URL by clicking on the Keynote’s “watch” at the Schedule. At the end of the Sep 13 and 14 we will run two interactive panels “Ask a Practitioner” and “Ask a Vendor”. Don’t miss the major Decision Management event of the year! Link

ModelOps: AI Model Operationalization

Gartner 2021 Report “Market Guide for AI Trust, Risk and Security Management“: AI model operationalization (ModelOps) is primarily focused on the governance and life cycle management of all AI and decision models (including models based on machine learning, knowledge graphs, rules, optimization, linguistics and agents). In contrast to MLOps, which focuses only on the operationalization of ML models, and AIOps which is AI for IT Operations, ModelOps focuses on the operationalization of all AI and decision models.

What AI Can Learn From Romeo & Juliet

In the Forbe’s article with this name, Doug Lenat, the creator of the Cyc’s Knowledge Base, wrote: “Some of the best AI systems today have already taken one small step in the right direction: they combine right-brain machine learning with some sort of left-brain symbolic representation of knowledge (typically something like a triple-store or knowledge graph) and an inference engine that can mechanically produce some conclusions from those abstract symbolic representations.  Just as you are doing right now, as you read the words in this article.” “Some of the most sophisticated AI programs today go beyond Machine Learning, go beyond statistics, and capture some of the meaning of a piece of text. The meaning is represented in some symbolic structure – for example, OWL ontologies,” – about which you may learn at the Declarative AI conference this and next week. Link

ML-powered Photo Upscaling

From Google AI Blog: “Natural image synthesis is a broad class of machine learning (ML) tasks with wide-ranging applications that pose a number of design challenges. One example is image super-resolution, in which a model is trained to transform a low resolution image into a detailed high resolution image. Super-resolution has many applications that can range from restoring old family portraits to improving medical imaging systems.Link Video

Ads, privacy and confusion

Ben Evans: “Privacy is coming to the internet and cookies are going away. This is long overdue – but we don’t know what happens next, we don’t have much consensus on what online privacy actually means, and most of what’s on the table conflicts fundamentally with competition.” Link
