Why the Golden Age of Machine Learning Begins Now

October 20, 2015 Nicole Hemsoth Even though the buzz around neural networks, artificial intelligence, and machine learning has been relatively recent, as many know, there is nothing new about any of these methods. If so many of the core algorithms and approaches have been around for decades, why is it just now that they are getting their day in the sun? To answer that question, we can take a look at what has happened over the last five years or so with the attention and tooling around data. And we can also point to the dramatic increase in scalable compute power, or to be more specific about it, performance per watt and bit. These two factors combined have fed the development fury, growing data analysis well beyond the standard database…
