5 Things I Wish I Knew About Real-Life AI

It was at an incredible startup where I kick-started my industrial career in Data Science 6 years ago. That was my first industrial job after 4 years in academia and research. When I decided to switch career paths, I simply thought that it will only be a domain shift. During academia, my focus was on biomedical data science and in the startup my focus will be on using data science for building automation. So I thought that the shift from academia to industry would only change the domain —** after all both are data science**, right? Boy, was I naive!

Looking back, it is true that the technical skillset in academia and industry is very similar, but the mindset is vastly different. Yes, both academia and industry careers are data science focused, but the goals are drastically different. The goal of academia is to create a state-of-the-art solution to address novel problems, with the ultimate hope of getting a paper published, but the goal of industry is to **generate revenue **and have happy customers, with the ultimate hope of having a functioning software.

Data Science is like a knife that could be used to cut cake and steak. If you’ve been cutting steak your whole life, probably you will end up breaking the plate the first time you cut a cake. And if you have been cutting cake your whole life, cutting your first piece of steak will be a quite frustrating task. So, if you are in this transitioning state, the following five points might prepare you to what you could expect and save you a significant amount of frustration.

1. It is all about the delivered value, not the method

Let me break the news: no one cares about how deep your neural network is or if you are using the latest transformer, no one cares if you are using decision tree or a gradient boosting machine. Customers care about the accuracy, stability and usability of the AI system you will create, regardless of the method you are using for your machine learning model.

Using AI tools in real estate can help agents make more accurate predictions and drive sales. Real estate is an industry filled with high stakes and high rewards. It is an industry where predicting outcomes is extremely valuable. A quick overview of the industry shows us that real estate agents play a major role in the sale of property in the United States.

“When we look at the Real Estate Industry in the United States we find that 89% of the purchases are made through real estate agents,” says Sofiya Vyshnevska, co-founder of PropertyMate, an AI platform helping real estate developers and agents alike and one of the most accomplished female entrepreneur in the Ukrainian startup community.

As a highly-regarded business development expert and entrepreneur, Vyshnevska shares some insights on how AI-platforms have disrupted traditional methods of real estate sectors.

Amsterdam And Helsinki Launch Open AI Registers

Amsterdam and Helsinki both launched an Open AI Register at the Next Generation Internet Summit. According to sources, these two cities are the first in the world that are aiming to be open and transparent about the use of algorithms and AI in the cities.

Currently, in the beta version, Algorithm Register is an overview of the artificial intelligence systems and algorithms used by the City of Amsterdam. The register is an effort to show where the cities are currently making use of AI and how the algorithms work.

Jan Vapaavuori, Mayor of Helsinki stated, “Helsinki aims to be the city in the world that best capitalises on digitalisation. Digitalisation is strongly associated with the utilisation of artificial intelligence. With the help of artificial intelligence, we can give people in the city better services available anywhere and at any time. In the front rank with the City of Amsterdam, we are proud to tell everyone openly what we use Artificial Intelligence for.”
