Opportunities in machine learning

I continue to be intrigued by the potential that machine learning can contribute to internet offerings and human effectiveness in a broader sense. Clearly this isn’t idle thought as we’ve invested in this theme more than once. As we are all starved of time just keeping lines of communication open who has time to consistently process high volumes of data and drive improved insights & understanding.

The deeper the insights the more potentially valuable the technology. In the UK are we resourcing up for a world where data scientists will be increasingly valuable. On the surface these are roles that would appear to be hit by science funding constraints, which would be a shame. Behavioural learning frontiers need to continually be challenged; if globally we continue to push geographic boundaries and are making significant discoveries (http://bit.ly/TWIDeS) this should not be beyond us!

We are consistently looking to see how machine learning can be more broadly applied within technologies in the development of new markets and the disruption of existing ones.
