No coding required: Companies make it easier than ever for scientists to use artificial intelligence
… AI used to be the specialized domain of data scientists and computer programmers. But companies such as Wolfram Research, which makes Mathematica, are trying to democratize the field, so scientists without AI skills can harness the technology for recognizing patterns in big data. … Computational power is no longer much of a limiting factor in science, says Juliana Freire, a computer scientist at New York University [Tandon School of Engineering] in New York City who is developing a ready-to-use AI tool with funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). "To a large extent, the bottleneck to scientific discoveries now lies with people."
