An exploration into Natural Language Processing with the Universal Studios dataset

#artificialintelligence

I have not posted a lot about Natural Language Processing, NLP, because there are not a lot of data science competitions concerning this genre of machine learning. I have, however, discovered that Kaggle, the premier data science website, does have text based datasets in their dataset section of their website.


AI: The Challenge of Achieving the Same Results

#artificialintelligence

If the power of logical reasoning is able to optimize the resources needed to reach quality AI solutions in a nonconventional way, then the AI industry should prepare for a major upcoming change. It is a change that is built on creativity; regardless of application titles or goals, no two applications will have the same results. Companies strive to transform their ideas into working plans to achieve their tactical goals. They do have highly specialized teams to make this happen, but not many companies in the AI realm have the strategic view of what may soon emerge in the industry. Having a highly specialized crew is indeed crucial to achieve tactical objectives.


Pittsburgh Tech Company Wins $500K In Artificial Intelligence Competition

#artificialintelligence

Pittsburgh technology company Marinus Analytics won third place in the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE competition Wednesday, beating out nearly 800 competitors around the world. Marinus uses artificial intelligence to sift through big data and help law enforcement agencies stop human trafficking and recover victims. "We had detectives saying, 'When we're looking for a missing child, the best we can do is print out a photo of their face, tape it to our computer screen, and scroll manually through online ads, and hope that we find them,'" Marinus president Emily Kennedy said in a video from the competition. The company's main product is Traffic Jam, a tool that uses facial recognition and other analytics to help law enforcement establish patterns and make connections across many trafficking websites with thousands of data points. Marinus estimates their software helped support 6,800 trafficking victims over a two-year span.


Just What You're Looking For: Recommender Team Suggests Winning Strategies

#artificialintelligence

The final push for the hat trick came down to the wire. Five minutes before the deadline, the team submitted work in its third and hardest data science competition of the year in recommendation systems. Called RecSys, it's a relatively new branch of computer science that's spawned one of the most widely used applications in machine learning, one that helps millions find what they want to watch, buy and play. The team's combination of six AI models packed into the contest's limit of 20 gigabytes all of the smarts it culled from studying 750 million data points. An unusual rule in the competition said the models had to run in less than 24 hours on a single core in a cloud CPU.


What Constant Surveillance Does to Your Brain

#artificialintelligence

Burr studies the philosophy of cognitive science and artificial intelligence, and his research has investigated the different kinds of data that can be scraped from human interactions with machines. In a recent study, which has not yet been published, Burr and his colleagues used data from computer science competitions to try to catalog what sort of information can be pulled from our everyday interactions with computers. They were surprised to find the breadth of data that can be gleaned. Programmers have been able to measure someone's job satisfaction through facial recognition, or parse a Facebook post to detect signs of depression, or even determine someone's heart rate through a webcam.


Akira's Machine Learning news -- #21

#artificialintelligence

In the following sections, I will introduce various articles and papers not only on the above contents but also on the following five topics. Winning tickets in pre-training are transferable -- arxiv.org The results show that Winning Ticket is present regardless of whether pre-training is supervised or unsupervised.


How to Join and Win Hackathons with AI

#artificialintelligence

Hackathons have been my life for the last year. Staying up until 4 AM every weekend building advanced projects under a time crunch produces an unmatched adrenaline rush. While hackathons are surely enjoyable no matter the outcome, it is not the same without a win. However, winning is not easy, and learning how to do so can take a long time. As a result, many new hackers become discouraged and don't continue. Lucky for me, this was not the case, as I was able to quickly develop strategies that helped me be successful.


California teenager invents AI-powered tool for early wildfire detection

#artificialintelligence

The world is indeed lucky when our most brilliant minds choose to work for the common good, rather than chasing money or becoming master criminals. So Inhabitat wants to thank young Ryan Honary for his work on an early detection system for wildfires. Sickened by the losses people sustained in the 2018 Camp Fire, California's deadliest wildfire, Honary turned his attention to how to mitigate future disasters. In 2019, Honary won the $10,000 grand prize in the Ignite Innovation Student Challenge for his Early Wildfire Detection Network submission, which provides app technology to firefighters. He was only in fifth grade at the time.
