Cold-Start Relating to First-Time Interactions in Humans

First impressions and first-time interactions are key elements to how we, as humans, interpret things, but these first-time interactions are typically influenced by previous experience and cultural background. These things, inherently, are hard to predict, and in the machine learning and AI world, predictions are all about assuming based off of previous data. In a cold-start scenario, this data is not present – and trying to predict how consumers may react to a product for the first time is difficult as a result.

When we react to something for the first time, our reaction doesn’t just come up out of nowhere; it comes from influences in our past and in our surroundings. Our culture informs us how we react to certain …

Time Series Analysis: The Basis of Predicting in Machine Learning

Data is vast and inherently hard to understand. So naturally, certain technologies, algorithms, and practices have been developed to help enhance the ways in which we understand, and ultimately use, data. The current trend states that all data is inherently valuable, however, this very much depends on what is considered to be of value. Algorithms built from selective data points, or features, are often used to predict the future. One such example is called time series analysis. Time series can be considered one of the most important means of processing data, especially in situations where historic data exists, or the expected value output requires actions to be understood over periods of time. 

Time series analysis is a …

Conversations Between Human and Machines

Imagine a conversation between you and your computer. The words you speak become a beacon of understanding for the programming, and actions are taken based on what you ask of the screen. Our way of speaking, though socially centered, is able to be translated into a logically centered form of language for machines. Many of the social norms that we have are due, in part or whole, to our ability to communicate through various means of language. However, language is continuously shifting and changing, leading it to naturally evolve alongside technology and computer programming. Technological languages came about in an effort for humans to be allowed a method to translate their ideas into commands for machines to follow. …

The Data Dilemma: Language Requires Unique Analysis

Expression, conversation, inflection; are all complex facets of communication that are used unconsciously within our existence. Language comprises more than just the written and spoken elements within English, but can be found in gestures, in numbers, in word of mouth or simply at the end of a pen. More than just a form of socialization, all these different types of language, at their core, are a means of transferring information from one party to another. If not in the words that are spoken, then the communication is found in the grammatical structure, the intonation of certain sounds, the symbols it uses, or how the language is written. 

Languages across the globe are forms of cultural understanding and …
