Are Tech Giants ‘Piling’ On Small Content Creators to Train Their AI?

Some of the biggest AI companies in the world are using material taken from thousands of content creators on YouTube to their AI models without compensating the creators of those videos, ProofNews reported today. Acco Read more…

The Top Five Data Labeling Firms According to Everest Group

The process of annotating and labeling data is critical for supervised learning tasks, such as training a large language model (LLM) and other types of machine learning models. However, the need for human cognition and i Read more…

Conversational AI Poised to Be Major Disrupter

Chatbots and conversational AI systems got an extended tryout during COVID as companies scrambled for ways to keep their operations running amid lockdowns. The technology fared better than expected, and now is on the cus Read more…

Data Is Everywhere, But Harvest Your Own for Peak AI Performance

The rapid proliferation of data marketplaces has made it easy for organizations to get their hands on third-party data. And pre-trained deep learning models are also readily available on the Internet. But just as plastic Read more…

Fake Data Comes to the Forefront

The lack of data historically has been a limiting factor in the development of predictive models. But with the advent of automated methods to generate skads of synthetic data, or what some call “fake data,” the lack Read more…

Synthetic Data: Sometimes Better Than the Real Thing

Having a large stockpile of data is still a prerequisite for advanced analytics and AI. But companies building AI models increasingly are finding that artificially created data can be just as good as the real thing. And Read more…
