5 Examples of Machine Learning

Machine learning is a subset of AI systems that has become an essential tool for many. The phrase is used to describe the process of a programs ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. Essentially, we are talking about programs that write themselves.

Financial

Investment firms, traders and hedge funds are using machine learning to create artificial intelligence with the ability to predict when the market will rise and fall. After making predictions these programs then automatically buy and sell based on those predictions. Rapidly implementing strategy faster and more accurately.

Marketing

More data than ever before is being collected about peoples personal lives. Between mobile devices and social media we are generating over two and a half quintillion bytes of personal data every day. Marketers are using that data to find and identify buying patterns, media preferences, dislikes, and preferences. The content and placement of advertisements is being customized using machine learning to find the optimal times, place and way in which to introduce their products to new customers.

Health

Machine learning is being used in the medical field to identify and treat illness much earlier than before. Early detection systems are trained just like other machine learning systems by training the program with tens of thousands of examples.

Automotive

Smart cars, driverless vehicles and data collection systems fitted on our driver operated vehicles are playing a role in collecting huge amounts of data about driving conditions, hazards, patterns and behaviors. As we transition to vehicles which are more connected to each us, each other, and the world around us that data will continue to grow. Wherever there is a lot of data there is an opportunity to use it and despite the already obvious impact machine learning is having on driverless cars we are only scraping the tip of the iceberg.

Security

Data security firms are making use of machine learning to analyze and react rapidly to cyber attacks. Being able to identify the signs of an attack and implementing quicker responses could prevent or neutralize many common threats including ransomware and malware.

Every avenue of technology in our society is growing and evolving. The impact of these technologies is changing all of the time. The near future holds a lot of possibility and machine learning is just one of the technologies that is making a widespread global impact. In the next decade machine learning is expected to be a part of almost every industry. The question isn’t “if” but “how” will your industry use it?

Is it time to upgrade to a VPS?

A virtual private server is a term to describe a virtual machine. Otherwise known as a cloud server, VPS provides the power and functionality of having your own server at a much more accessible price. Purchasing a VPS service means total use of the machine with root access, dedicated CPU and RAM.

Do you have multiple websites?

Shared hosting usually allows for sub-domains but hosting companies can sometimes be picky about you having more than one webpage. Companies like ASPnix allow you 5 -100 websites per shared hosting account but others can be pretty restrictive. VPS hosting will provide ample disk space for all of your data and websites. With dedicated RAM and CPU you know that you wont have problems handling massive data or traffic.

Are you expanding as a business?

With more business comes more traffic and with a shared hosting environment you may find that data and processing power are not up to your new expectations. VPS offers you a flexible way to continue to grow.

What kind of content will your site host?

When upgrading to dynamic content make sure that you have enough resources. Dynamic content will soak up all of your system resources like a sponge and if you are still using entry level shared hosting you will eventually need a lot more than what you have.

Is your site slowing down?

Web hosting companies want to treat their customers fairly and if you require a huge amount of resources then you may end up seeing yourself slowing down.

Do you have added security and backup a concerns?

There are certain security limitations with a shared hosting account that don’t apply to a VPS. Companies like ASPnix and others make regular backups to insure your data is safe as well as utilize a hardware firewall to add to your security and give you 24/7 tech support. This can be critical if you are in need of added attention to security and have critical data on your server. In the event of some kind of an emergency you can always call on someone from their staff and get the help you need to identify and solve any issue.
