Programming Machine Learning: From Coding to Deep Learning by Paolo Perrotta

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning can be intimidating, with its reliance on math and algorithms that most programmers don't encounter in their regular work. Take a hands-on approach, writing the Python code yourself, without any libraries to obscure what's really going on. Iterate on your design, and add layers of complexity as you go. Create perceptrons to classify data. Build neural networks to tackle more complex and sophisticated data sets.

"Listening to the data is important… but so is experience and intuition. After all, what is intuition at its best but large amounts of data of all kinds filtered through a human brain rather than a math model?" One of the most important steps as Data Science is a quantitative domain and core mathematical foundations will serve as a base for your learning. Probability is the measure of the likelihood that an event will occur. A lot of data science is based on attempting to measure the likelihood of events, everything from the odds of an advertisement getting clicked on, to the probability of failure for a part on an assembly line.


Teaching 'common sense' to artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Ever wonder why virtual assistant Siri can easily tell you what the square root of 1,558 is in an instant but can't answer the question "what happens to an egg when you drop it on the ground?" Artificial intelligence (A.I.) interfaces on devices like Apple's iPhone or Amazon's Alexa often fall flat on what many people consider to be basic questions, but can be speedy and accurate in their responses to complicated math problems. That's because modern A.I. currently lacks common sense. "What people who don't work in A.I. everyday don't realize is just how primitive what we call'A.I.' is nowadays," machine-learning researcher Alan Fern of Oregon State University's College of Engineering told KOIN 6 News. "We have A.I.s that do very specialized, specific things, specific tasks, but they're not general purpose. They can't interact in general ways because they don't have the common sense that you need to do that."


Machines learn chemistry to predict reaction results

#artificialintelligence

"A chemical reaction is a highly complex system", explains Frederik Sandfort, PhD student at the Institute of Organic Chemistry and one of the lead authors of the publication. "In contrast to the prediction of properties of individual compounds, a reaction is the interaction of many molecules and thus a multidimensional problem," he adds. Moreover, there are no clearly defined "rules of the game" which, as in the case of modern chess computers, simplify the development of AI models. For this reason, previous approaches to accurately predicting reaction results such as yields or products are mostly based on a previously gained understanding of molecular properties. "The development of such models involves a great deal of effort. Moreover, the majority of them are highly specialized and cannot be transferred to other problems," Frederik Sandfort adds.


My Journey from Physics into Data Science

#artificialintelligence

I still learn new knowledge everyday with my growing passion in Data Science field. To pursue different career track as a graduating physics student there must be'Why' and'How' questions to be answered. Having been asked by a number of people about my transition from academia -- Physics to Data Science, I hope my story could answer the questions on why I decided to become a Data Scientist and how I pursued the goal, and ultimately encourage as well as inspire more people to pursue their passion. The CERN Summer Student Programme offers once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for undergraduate students of physics, computing and engineering to join one of their research projects with top scientists in multicultural teams at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. In June 2017, I was very fortunate to be accepted to join the programme.

Sophia the robot visits Timberlane Science Fair

#artificialintelligence

Sophia, the world's most advanced human-like robot participated in the Timberlane Middle School science fair and Family Fun Night to promote STEM education last Saturday. It was Sophia's first time attending a school science fair as a guest and her creator, Hanson Robotics, expressed gratitude to Hopewell Valley for the kind invitation and for showing innovative thinking by including Sophia in this year's activities. Sophia was created by combining innovations in science, engineering, and artistry. She is a framework for robotics and artificial intelligence ("AI") and research, and an agent for exploring the human-to-robot experience in service and entertainment applications. Sophia has also become a much sought-after media personality, helping to advocate for AI research and the role of robotics and AI in our lives.


Navigating the New Landscape of AI Platforms

#artificialintelligence

Nearly two years ago, Seattle Sport Sciences, a company that provides data to soccer club executives, coaches, trainers and players to improve training, made a hard turn into AI. It began developing a system that tracks ball physics and player movements from video feeds. To build it, the company needed to label millions of video frames to teach computer algorithms what to look for. It started out by hiring a small team to sit in front of computer screens, identifying players and balls on each frame. But it quickly realized that it needed a software platform in order to scale.


Global Big Data Conference

#artificialintelligence

The principles underpinning open source software development that are transforming the digital economy are now being extended to new sectors such as education, where proponents hope to leverage the collaborative approach to advance the teaching of data science. An open source project shepherded by the Linux Foundation aims to accelerate data science curricula while benefitting from the contributions of students and teachers. OpenDS4All is funded by IBM (NYSE: IBM) and is being developed by the University of Pennsylvania. The effort would give educators free access to information needed to develop data science coursework. In return, successful approaches would be folded back into what project promoters call "constantly evolving and improving" curricula.


Large Scale Machine Learning Programming with python - AI Objectives

#artificialintelligence

Lets discuss Large Scale Machine Learning. Nowadays python is the most emerging Language in the industry if we look at the chart below we can see the effective inclination in recent years. The main reason of its popularity is the vast use of it in machine learning and AI. There are many other languages but well known are C,C,R; python is taking the grounds because of its scalability and its usage on a vast scale and its compatibility on frameworks of Large Scale Machine Learning. Machine learning have compute complex algorithms which needs a language that have computation capability to perform linear algebra and calculus calculations.
