2018: AI gets smarter and more practical

We all know AI is coming to the forefront of technology in the form of machine learning (ML) and deep neural networks, where AI can understand the surroundings and apply that information to the current context, whether it is about data pattern analysis or driving a vehicle. Coupled with increasing capabilities of AI hardware, in […]

Managing the challenges of machine learning

The benefits of machine learning for businesses are immense. However, some organizations are feeling bogged down by it. Some don’t see enough benefit from machine learning while others are running into issues related to its development and deployment. To manage these adoption-related challenges, businesses need to keep some tricks up their sleeves. At DXC, we […]

DXC Labs: Using data stories to accelerate machine learning solutions

DXC Labs has been leading the R&D for our industrialized AI offering by rapidly developing prototypes of machine learning solutions for various “data stories.” These prototypes (or minimum viable products) can be developed quickly to show customers actionable insights and engage them in deeper discussions. The prototypes, which we also call accelerators, lay the groundwork […]

Airport of the future: From vision to reality

Airplane Future

Imagine never missing a flight again. Imagine a connected world where location services can determine that you may have lost track of time and are eating lunch a short three-minute walk from the departure gate. The airline is now able to track you and alert you personally that there’s still time to make the flight. […]

How to get started with machine learning in manufacturing

Smart machines are changing the way we manufacture. Machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence that gives machines the ability to learn without human help, creates new connections between manufacturing design and technologies like augmented reality. But it also changes the actual practice of manufacturing. Today, machine-learning technology is relatively easy to acquire, but getting started with real-world applications in manufacturing can be […]

Putting machine learning into context

Machine Learning is getting a lot more air time these days but are we actually sure what it is? The most common definition goes along the lines of: It gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed” (Arthur Samuel, 1959). This is an old quote but it has held the test of time. […]
