1st time with Longitudes Radio (radio/id1273275417?mt=2)
Just listened to the podcast on UPS application of AI-natural language-machine learning.... enjoyed it. Perhaps more discussion of the GIGO principle with the conversion of human originated inputs to a digital fourier transform and the countermeasures being adopted by UPS. Also clarify the branch of machine learning under the 'AI umbrella ' along with protection from malicious BOTs...
Looking forward to more episodes!
