We wrote you read. From identifying critical information in the news to AI trends to our own data science experiments, we covered a lot here in 2019. And as the end of year tradition would have, we take a look back at the five AI blog posts of 2019 that garnered the most attention. 

 

1.More on Data 'Signals' and How They Can Benefit You (January, 17, 2019)

Bitvore has a complex and exhaustive system for identifying critical information in news. We look at 1M or more individual news stories per day and analyze them with our battery of AI models, filters, and natural language processing to identify only the most important business news for our clients. We identify when something important happened in our system through what is called a 'signal.' Read More...

We extracted 9,045 unique titles. The frequency of results wasn’t much of a surprise. Read More...

Recently, a friend added to a well-known phrase by saying that there's nothing certain in this world except death, taxes... and data.

Sometimes, years or months before a municipality declares bankruptcy, a fiscal emergency, a budget shortfall, or cuts to city services, and the first action always involves taxes. Read More...

 

5. A Computer Says What? Experimenting with Synthetic Text Generation (April 22, 2019)

Recently, a group of machine learning researchers trained and documented a state-of-the-art natural language generation system that performed so well on many language modeling benchmarks, that they were called the ‘deepfakes’ of text generation. Read More...
