Humans vs. Robots vs. Robots vs. Humans : AI for Cybersecurity

This month’s Dataspace newsletter looks at the applications of AI for cybersecurity, and some potential limitations.

AI Detectives – Using Data to Sleuth out the Truth

Image alteration is all around us nowadays. This post looks at a new generation of tools that “predict” if an image has been altered.

What Does Predictive Text Spell for Human Writing?

Beyond the tech specs of how these algorithms actually work, the growing capabilities of predictive text beg a multitude of questions regarding the potential implications for humans.

Is AI Coming For Your Job?

Don’t worry. In a lot of areas AI is just not ready to make human workers redundant.

Will Covid Break Data Science?

Predictive analytics is about making educated guesses regarding the future based on things you know about the past. But, what if the future doesn’t look anything like the past?

SURPRISED BY AI!

Much like an actual cloud that can look like whatever you imagine it to be, this virtual cloud is amorphous in its own right, and ever changing.

Fortunately for those who want to leverage cloud computing to improve their data sharing, storage, and analytics capabilities it is less important to understand what “The Cloud” looks like than what it does. In this issue of our newsletter, we dive into some of the silver linings of cloud computing and its applications.

Danger, Will Robinson! (AI, Analytics and the Invisible Dangers)

While we may yet be a long way from the threat of truly sentient computers such as Hal 9000 and ARIIA, the current capability of AI technologies still offers plenty of power for those who wish to harness it for malicious purposes. These types of crimes go beyond the grey ethical areas that we discussed […]

What does it mean to hash data and do I really care?

Hashing is simply passing some data through a formula that produces a result, called a hash. That hash is usually a string of characters and the hashes generated by a formula are always the same length, regardless of how much data you feed into it.

Data Science and Predictive Analytics Explained in Two Sentences

In data science and predictive analytics we determine the likelihood of something by looking at data about it. We do this simply by looking for similarities between that data and data from past cases where we actually know the outcome.

Kafka: What Is it?

Number One in Dataspace’s Data Science Series: What does it mean?   If nothing else, the data science industry is good at coming up with new, unique, confusing names and terms.  ZooKeeper, MapReduce, Hadoop, Pig, Storm, Mahout MongoDB…the list keeps growing and it’s totally understandable if you can’t always identify or explain the different technologies […]
