Saw this posted today, way cool use case for Machine Learning!   Do you have a cool ML story that you would like to share with the community?  Please let us know.


Reference of the Day: Trucking and logistics company J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc, the second largest in the US, co-innovates with Google to develop ML models to better match shippers and carriers.

Part of the problem today is that the driver market is fragmented, with most of the nation’s more than 3 million drivers working for small carriers that don’t invest a lot in technology. Information on trucks and drivers isn’t shared, and as a result, many drivers spend parts of their day waiting for their next load while shippers in the immediate area might be looking for a carrier.

One of the first projects the companies will work on is real-time tracking and predictive modeling to provide more accurate pickup times, delivery predictions, and pricing data for both shippers and carriers.

As part of its agreement with Google, J.B. Hunt will migrate its 360 platform from Microsoft Azure to Google Cloud so it can, among other things, more easily access Google’s artificial intelligence expertise.
