In our industry, every person has a unique skill set. Some of these skills are a little easier to tap into and understand, but others take more effort to master.
In an attempt to make our DevOps team more productive, we recently hired our first DevOps engineer. His skill set is very diverse, but one thing he brought to the table that really stood out was his uncanny ability to use his natural instincts to predict what would be the next thing that would happen in his field. No matter how little of an expert he was in his field, he’d be able to tell you exactly what his next move would be.
In today’s fast paced, technology driven world, the ability to predict which tasks to tackle in which order is extremely useful. It becomes especially useful in the DevOps world, as there’s no good way to know what the next thing you’re going to do will be. What you want to do, is to figure out everything else you need to do that day, and figure out what you can do before you move on to the next task.
This is an area where machine learning is an area of focus, and as AI evolves and changes, so does the ability to predict what you will want to do next. A couple of the early projects we’re working on at Arkane are machine vision-based AI platforms and predictive analytics systems. Machine learning is the science of finding patterns in data.
A machine learning algorithm can figure out what a phone call might look like, what a text message might look like, what a face might look like, what a text might look like. It’s able to identify a pattern in the data that it’s learning, and then determine what action you should take next. In addition to being able to predict some action, a machine learning algorithm can also tell you what that action will be.
Machine learning algorithms are usually used to predict what actions should be taken by an individual based on past actions. These are called prediction models. These models are used in many different areas, including fraud detection, product design, social media, etc. The most interesting and promising applications are probably in software development. Machine learning is used to help developers make decisions so they know what to build next.
One of the first projects using machine learning for software development was Autodesk’s Maya, which used a model developed by Stanford University’s Deep Learning Lab. The idea is that, like a good model, a good prediction model should be able to identify patterns for good and bad, and good and bad decisions.
I’m not sure I believe in the effectiveness of machine learning, but I do believe that it can be used in software development. In fact, the more I read about it, the more convinced I am that a big part of software development is the use of machine learning. We’re still at the early stages of this space, but I think the next big thing is to create algorithms that will help developers improve a product, and not just using the product itself to accomplish this.
I believe this is a very dangerous time to be using machine learning, because AI is already affecting our lives from a very high level. There is so much data these days that it is almost impossible to figure out what the results are. A company like Netflix, for example, uses machine learning to figure out what shows are popular. It could very well be that watching a certain movie will give you a better score, so they’re using machine learning to figure out what shows are popular.
There are similar issues with artificial intelligence. I am an advocate for AI because it is a much easier, safer thing to work with. My goal is to make the right decisions. Thats not an easy task because theyre a lot of rules and assumptions that are often wrong.
