My Recommendations to Learn Mathematics for Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

I have always emphasized on the importance of mathematics in machine learning. Here is a compilation of resources (books, videos, and papers) to get you going. This is not an exhaustive list but I have carefully curated it based on my experience and observations. This is a repost of my Twitter thread that you can find here. I will keep updating the list here as I come across more useful resources.


It Is Time for More Critical CS Education

Communications of the ACM

We live in uncertain times. A global pandemic has disrupted our lives. Our broken economies are rapidly restructuring. Climate change looms, disinformation abounds, and war, as ever, hangs over the lives of millions. And at the heart of every global crisis are the chronically underserved, marginalized, oppressed, and persecuted, who are often the first to befall the tragedies of social, economic, environmental, and technological change.3


Teaching computers to read health records is helping fight COVID-19 – here's how

#artificialintelligence

Medical records are a rich source of health data. When combined, the information they contain can help researchers better understand diseases and treat them more effectively. But to unlock this rich resource, researchers first need to read it. We may have moved on from the days of handwritten medical notes, but the information recorded in modern electronic health records can be just as hard to access and interpret. It's an old joke that doctors' handwriting is illegible, but it turns out their typing isn't much better.


Digital diagnosis: Why teaching computers to read medical records could help against COVID-19

#artificialintelligence

These algorithms are extremely complex. They need to understand context, long strings of words and medical concepts, distinguish current events from historic ones, identify family relationships and more. We teach them to do this by feeding them existing written information so they can learn the structure and meaning of language – in this case, publicly available English text from the internet – and then use real medical records for further improvement and testing.


COVID-19 has destroyed millions of jobs -- It's time to reskill America

#artificialintelligence

Beyond the initial shock of mass unemployment, a growing hunger crisis, and widespread disruption of our routines, COVID-19 has begun to transform the business and employment landscape at a deeper level. It essentially hit the fast-forward button on pre-existing trends toward automation, robotization, and artificial intelligence (AI) as companies race to replace now-risky human contact with digital capabilities and services which endanger jobs in warehousing, manufacturing, and retail. Other large-employment industries like travel and tourism that could absorb these losses will likely struggle to survive for years to come. Our recovery hinges on getting tens of millions of unemployed workers reskilled and back into jobs -- and educating our children to be future-ready. We learned from the last crisis that education is key to a robust economic recovery.


IIT-Jodhpur launches BTech in artificial intelligence, data science

#artificialintelligence

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Jodhpur will offer a new undergraduate programme in artificial intelligence and data science from the academic session 2020-21. The new BTech programme will have courses in computer science, mathematics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, and their applications in various domains. Students who opt for the course can also take a specialisation in areas including visual computing, socio-digital realities, language technologies, robotics, and the Artificial Intelligence of Things. Students will also have the option to pursue MBA (tech) in the fifth year as dual-degree option in the School of Management and Entrepreneurship, the IIT said in an official release. Prof Santanu Chaudhury, Director, IIT-Jodhpur, said: "Under the broad umbrella of IIT Jodhpur's unique proposition of AI for everything, students belonging to the academic programmes in AI, Data and Computational Sciences will be part of scientific innovations for solving local and global engineering and social problems in close collaboration with industry. Students will be part of the institute's initiatives for ensuring better life and livelihood for all with AI as the enabling force. IIT-Jodhpur would like AI and Data Science students to explore transdisciplinary research agenda fostering collaborative opportunities across all the departments of IIT Jodhpur and partner organisations."


Art Detective: AI for Art Style Recognition

#artificialintelligence

Being both a computer science student and an artist, I love testing the ways in which I can combine my two interests. In doing so, I decided to design an AI-powered application called Art Detective. Art Detective is an art style recognition application that uses visual recognition technology and takes user-inputted images of artworks, and responds by telling the user which art movement/style the inputted piece is recognized as belonging to. The app targets artists, art lovers, and even those who are curious about art. If an artist is curious about which art style their own work most aligns with, they can use this app to find out.

PNNL machine learning scientists teach computers to read X-ray images

#artificialintelligence

If a person in the developing world severely fractures a limb, they face an impossible choice. An improperly healed fracture could mean a lifetime of pain, but lengthy healing time in traction or a bulky cast results in immediate financial hardship. That's why Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) machine learning scientists leaped into action when they learned they could help a local charity enable patients in the developing world to walk within one week of surgery--even when fractures are severe. For more than 20 years, the Richland, Washington-based charity SIGN Fracture Care has pioneered orthopedic care, including training and innovatively designed implants that speed healing without real-time operating room X-ray machines. During those 20 years, they've built a database of 500,000 procedure images and outcomes that serves as a learning hub for doctors around the world.


Applying artificial intelligence to science education

#artificialintelligence

This review article aims to examine how machine learning has revolutionized the capacity of science assessment in terms of tapping into complex constructs, improving assessment functionality, and facilitating scoring automaticity.
