New Relic Enhances AIOps with the Industry’s First AI Recommended Alerts

New Relic, the all-in-one observability platform for every engineer, announced that it has further enhanced its AIOps capabilities with recommended alerts. This provides the ability to quickly detect and easily resolve alert coverage gaps by using AI to identify anomalous behavior, determine areas of the technology stack that aren’t being monitored, and recommend new alerts to engineers. The industry’s only observability solution that reduces the need to manually build numerous alert conditions using AI makes it easier to understand which signals are most important or what thresholds indicate performance problems. Now, every engineer, regardless of their experience level, can eliminate alerting blindspots—empowering them to detect, resolve, and respond to issues faster.

Harnessing the Power of Machine Learning Algorithms: What You Need to Know

Machine Learning AlgorithmsAlgorithms for machine learning (ML) are computational processes or methods that let computers or other devices learn from information, detect trends, forecast the future, or act on it without having to be explicitly programmed. These algorithms are a key element of machine learning, a subfield of computer science and artificial intelligence (AI). For the purpose of gaining insightful knowledge, identifying patterns, and formulating predictions or judgments, ML algorithms evaluate and process enormous volumes of data. These include supervised learning, unsupervised learning, semi-supervised learning, reinforcement learning, and deep learning. Recently, Netflix was able to save $1 billion using its machine learning algorithm for personalization and content recommendations.
