Released for general availability by AWS, Amazon Textract is a fully managed service that uses machine learning to automatically extract text and data, including from tables and forms, in virtually any document without the need for manual review, custom code, or machine learning experience.
Machine learning has matured as a mathematical discipline and now joins the many subfields of mathematics that deal with the burden of unprovability and the unease that comes with it. Perhaps results such as this one will bring to the field of machine learning a healthy dose of humility, even as machine-learning algorithms continue to revolutionize the world around us.
This case suggests that machine translation can fail even the most basic tests, and as long as that possibility remains, we have to maintain a healthy skepticism.
Machine learning still stands on the three core features of representation, assessment, and optimization. As a result, many machine learning systems tend to return approximately the same results. Given a choice between more clever algorithms and better quality training data, it is often preferable to spend the effort on better data.

There is no natural way to place colors in order, and that makes comparing color palettes difficult. One algorithm looks set to change that.
Does the inevitable triumph of AI robots over human reason and logic mean that the legal profession is doomed? Will Watson be the next generation’s lawyer of choice? Ralph Losey does not think so and shares his thoughts on this important topic.
The good news is that the early dividends from AI are already within reach of most midsize companies as they look for ways to expand their digital boundaries.
