Why Warren Buffett is Buying Snowflake Stock

The best way to learn how to swim is to jump into the deep end of the pool and figure it out as you go along. That’s how most newbie investors enter the world of investing.

Why We’re Avoiding Sumo Logic Stock

IPOs are coming out of the woodwork in a heated market that defies the imagination. There has been an unprecedented loss in productivity around the globe, yet the markets continue soaring to new highs. In the words of Mr. Dickens, “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” It’s always a […]

An Analytics, Data Science, and Process Automation Stock

In a recent piece on hyperautomation, we talked about a success story where a professional services firm saved half a billion dollars by adopting robotic process automation (RPA). That’s the sort of exponential value that’s an easy sell at the C-level. Companies that can manage to implement RPA successfully are now reaping big rewards. Then, […]

Why Enterprise Backup Solutions are a Good Investment

The idea of backing up your data is as old as computing itself. Remember autosave? That was what you hoped would happen while typing away in Corel WordPerfect just in case you encountered the blue screen of death (BSOD).

Managing Medical Imaging Big Data for Research

We do lots of research here at Nanalyze, and over the years we’ve learned that market size estimates are largely useless. This quickly becomes apparent when you go gather every single estimate out there and compare the numbers. Essentially, what you get are a bunch of MBAs who all use different methods to arrive at different […]

Crowdsourced Big Data is Big Business for Appen

The term “metadata” refers to data that describes data, and it comes in quite handy when you’re training machine learning algorithms. Take for example a picture of a table with a plate of eggs, bacon, and toast along with a couple of hands holding utensils. We can easily label the individual objects – knife, fork, left hand, […]

10 Uses of Artificial Intelligence in Mental Health

Mental illnesses affect 15.5% of the global population. They’re the leading cause of disability-adjusted life years, accounting for 37% of healthy years lost from non-communicable diseases. Even worse, mental health conditions are on the rise, with some estimates putting the costs to the global economy up to $16 trillion between 2010 and 2030 if global healthcare systems […]
