More and more, it is becoming necessary to consider working collaboratively, not only for questions regarding skills or because of the very quick evolution of engineering skills, and devices in particular, but also because working alone in a studio or a laboratory will be less and less viable. Interlocution is also essential in artistic practice. After having developed most of my projects alone for a long time, I understand how sharing this experience and competences gives meaning to this activity. You have worked in Brazil for many years. Is it a good place for new media art?


Artificial intelligence Part 3: Real Grid-Operations Benefits Aclara Blog

#artificialintelligence

In Part 3 of our series on how utilities are using artificial intelligence, we look at how AI amplifies analytics for grid operations. Duke Energy saved some $130 million in avoided costs by using predictive data analytics to identify problems before they caused equipment failures. A utility in Brazil estimates savings in the range of $420,000 USD each month through better, analytics-based theft detection. Because, as an article published by Forbes notes, "Machine learning is a continuation of the concepts around predictive analytics, with one key difference: The AI system is able to make assumptions, test and learn autonomously." With these enhancements, data science will become more powerful than ever, and utilities stand to gain.


Your Tesla could explain why it crashed. But good luck getting its Autopilot data

#artificialintelligence

On Jan. 21, 2019, Michael Casuga drove his new Tesla Model 3 southbound on Santiago Canyon Road, a two-lane highway that twists through hilly woodlands east of Santa Ana. He wasn't alone, in one sense: Tesla's semiautonomous driver-assist system, known as Autopilot -- which can steer, brake and change lanes -- was activated. Suddenly and without warning, Casuga claims in a Superior Court of California lawsuit, Autopilot yanked the car left. The Tesla crossed a double yellow line, and without braking, drove through the oncoming lane and crashed into a ditch, all before Casuga was able to retake control. Tesla confirmed Autopilot was engaged, according to the suit, but said the driver was to blame, not the technology.


A Multi-Channel Neural Graphical Event Model with Negative Evidence

arXiv.org Machine Learning

Event datasets are sequences of events of various types occurring irregularly over the time-line, and they are increasingly prevalent in numerous domains. Existing work for modeling events using conditional intensities rely on either using some underlying parametric form to capture historical dependencies, or on non-parametric models that focus primarily on tasks such as prediction. We propose a non-parametric deep neural network approach in order to estimate the underlying intensity functions. We use a novel multi-channel RNN that optimally reinforces the negative evidence of no observable events with the introduction of fake event epochs within each consecutive inter-event interval. We evaluate our method against state-of-the-art baselines on model fitting tasks as gauged by log-likelihood. Through experiments on both synthetic and real-world datasets, we find that our proposed approach outperforms existing baselines on most of the datasets studied.


What AI still can't do

#artificialintelligence

The dream of endowing computers with causal reasoning drew Bareinboim from Brazil to the United States in 2008, after he completed a master's in computer science at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He jumped at an opportunity to study under Judea Pearl, a computer scientist and statistician at UCLA. Pearl, 83, is a giant--the giant--of causal inference, and his career helps illustrate why it's hard to create AI that understands causality.


Electricity Theft Detection with self-attention

arXiv.org Machine Learning

In this work we propose a novel self-attention mechanism model to address electricity theft detection on an imbalanced realistic dataset that presents a daily electricity consumption provided by State Grid Corporation of China. Our key contribution is the introduction of a multi-head self-attention mechanism concatenated with dilated convolutions and unified by a convolution of kernel size $1$. Moreover, we introduce a binary input channel (Binary Mask) to identify the position of the missing values, allowing the network to learn how to deal with these values. Our model achieves an AUC of $0.926$ which is an improvement in more than $17\%$ with respect to previous baseline work. The code is available on GitHub at https://github.com/neuralmind-ai/electricity-theft-detection-with-self-attention.


Improved prediction of soil properties with Multi-target Stacked Generalisation on EDXRF spectra

arXiv.org Machine Learning

Machine Learning (ML) algorithms have been used for assessing soil quality parameters along with non-destructive methodologies. Among spectroscopic analytical methodologies, energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) is one of the more quick, environmentally friendly and less expensive when compared to conventional methods. However, some challenges in EDXRF spectral data analysis still demand more efficient methods capable of providing accurate outcomes. Using Multi-target Regression (MTR) methods, multiple parameters can be predicted, and also taking advantage of inter-correlated parameters the overall predictive performance can be improved. In this study, we proposed the Multi-target Stacked Generalisation (MTSG), a novel MTR method relying on learning from different regressors arranged in stacking structure for a boosted outcome. We compared MTSG and 5 MTR methods for predicting 10 parameters of soil fertility. Random Forest and Support Vector Machine (with linear and radial kernels) were used as learning algorithms embedded into each MTR method. Results showed the superiority of MTR methods over the Single-target Regression (the traditional ML method), reducing the predictive error for 5 parameters. Particularly, MTSG obtained the lowest error for phosphorus, total organic carbon and cation exchange capacity. When observing the relative performance of Support Vector Machine with a radial kernel, the prediction of base saturation percentage was improved in 19%. Finally, the proposed method was able to reduce the average error from 0.67 (single-target) to 0.64 analysing all targets, representing a global improvement of 4.48%.
