A talk on AI (Artificial Intelligence) titled “Managing the development of AI and Machines that learn” presented by the CEO of nuenergy.ai, Niraj Bhargava.
It is widely acknowledged that AI technology will
transform organizations and society around the globe – and with recent
advancements in processing power, data accessibility, and algorithms we
suddenly find ourselves at the beginning of this transformation.
Introducing the Machine Trust Index (MTI), assisting us to boldly
proceed with a responsible, innovative spirit. The goal of the MTI is to
establish an open and versatile framework for measuring and managing
trust in the evolving sphere of AI. The MTI provides measurable
evidence, transparency and accountability of an AI solution, allowing
providers to effectively communicate the value of their solutions as
well as their measurable trustworthiness.
Niraj Bhargava is Founder and CEO of NuEnergy.ai,
the developers of the Machine Trust Index™ (MTI) for managing AI
deployments. He is also Chair of the Innovation Committee of the Board
at the Royal Ottawa. Niraj was President and CEO of Enerstat
Limited, and led it through its turnaround and acquisition, Founding CEO
of QCED Inc., a faculty member in Entrepreneurship at Queen’s
University, a Director of the Queen’s Executive MBA, and then Dean of
the Business School at Royal Roads University. Niraj practiced
engineering at Bell-Northern Research and global marketing at General
Electric, and was the founding General Manager of GE Energy Management. Niraj was the founding CEO of Fluent.ai in Montreal and Co-Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Energate Inc.

What is Cognos Analytics?
“IBM® Cognos® Analytics integrates data preparation,
reporting, modeling, self-service analysis, dashboards, stories, event
management and now automated predictive analytics into one stack. Moreover, the
latest release makes extensive use of AI, including machine learning, natural
language processing (NLP) and natural language generation (NLG), in order to
automate as many features for the end user as possible, in an effort to make
BI, analytics and predictive analysis easy for business users.”

What is missing from common practice in machine learning?
AI, and machine learning in particular, is enjoying its golden age. Machine learning has changed the face of the world over the past two decades but we are still a long way from achieving a general artificial intelligence. In this talk, I will discuss a couple of elements that I believe are missing from common practice in machine learning, including incorporating causality and creating a new framework for unsupervised learning.
Ali Ghodsi is a Professor in the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at the University of Waterloo. His research involves statistical machine-learning methods. Ghodsi’s research spans a variety of areas in computational statistics. He studies theoretical frameworks and develops new machine learning algorithms for analyzing large-scale data sets, with applications to bioinformatics, data mining, pattern recognition, robotics, computer vision, and sequential decision making.
