Big Data enabled AI/ML & trends - The New Data Science
Big Data enabled AI and ML: The New Data Science Neither AI nor Machine Learning are new, and we know that AI was put on ice for the last 20 years. So what made AI and ML so popular so suddenly? Big Data, of course. Well, that is a correct but inaccurate diagnosis. In this short intro, we are going to look briefly at what of Big Data technologies have helped AI/ML become the hero of the day. And from there, we will also look at what the current trends are in AI/ML technologies and applications, and what we can expect to see of AI/ML enabled applications in the near future.
