Minding Your Business with AI--Danna Voth<div>A new crop of technology grafting AI to data mining techniques is making unstructured data--emails, blogs, business records, manufacturer warranties, and other kinds of text--more useful to companies. Machine learning, natural language processing, hidden Markov models, and rules-based pattern matching methods parse text for meaning, break it into bits, tag it, and rearrange it. The newly structured text can reveal such information as workflows, instances of impropriety or legal incompliance, cases and causes of problems, and market trends.</div><div>Computer Vision Strives for 20/20--Benjamin Alfonsi</div><div>Approaches to advancing machine-enabled sight have varied widely, yielding a spectacular array of possible applications, from ocean science and robotics to crime scene investigation and space exploration.</div>
