It’s commonsense that AI applications are changing our life. We are in the midst of an AI hype with high expectations towards technology. Governments using AI are transforming our societies. More and more money has been poured into AI startups. These phenomena made us interested in the business side of AI, so we collected the hottest titles on the topic.

Today, with the ever more long documents and multimedia data, finding the right information is more important and challenging than ever. The rise of deep learning has ushered in a new era of “neural search”. However, building a neural search system is non-trivial work for many engineers. The main challenges are: (1) long dev cycle due to the complex tech stack (2) poor scalability due to the glued-architecture (3) strong requirements on the domain knowledge to fine-tune the results. With Jina (https://github.com/jina-ai/jina), engineers can quickly build up a search engine powered by state-of-the-art AI in just minutes. In this talk, I will introduce the design philosophy and the key features of Jina; and showcase how Jina bootstraps a QA semantic search system and a short-video search system in just lines of code.

If you believe that graph and network visualization is a kind of art, this post was written for you. If you believe that it isn’t, then you should also keep reading. Since we love using graph-based methods in our work, like generating more labeled data, visualizing language acquisition and shedding light on hidden biases in language, we started a series on graph theory and network science. The first part was devoted to the theoretical background of graphs and how to deal with them using Python, while the second part was about graph databases and analytics engines. Now we turn to graph and network visualization.

Alessandro Negro of GraphAware and author of Graph-Powered Machine Learning was our speaker this week. He delivered a talk titled Using Knowledge Graphs to predict customer needs, improve product quality and save costs and presented a demo, Fighting corona virus with Knowledge Graph and Hume. You can watch the recordings of the meetup below.

From keyword extraction to knowledge graphs, graph and network science offer a good framework to deal with natural language. We love using graph-based methods in our work so much, like generating more labeled data, visualizing language acquisition and shedding light on hidden biases in language, that we decided to start a series on the topic. The first part explored the theoretical background of network science and dealt with graphs using Python. This part focuses on graph processing frameworks and graph databases.
