Was 2017 the year that every product under the sun was marketed as being cognitive, having machine learning, or being artificially intelligent? Well, yes. But don’t hate all of them. In many cases, machine learning actually did improve the functionality of products, sometimes in surprising ways.
Our reviewers didn’t give any prizes for incorporating AI, but did pick out the most prominent tools for building and training models. These include the deep learning frameworks TensorFlow and PyTorch, the automated model-building package H2O.ai Driverless AI, and the solid machine learning toolbox Scikit-learn.
