Learning The TensorFlow Way of Linear Regression

#artificialintelligence

We will loop through batches of data points and let TensorFlow update the slope and y-intercept. Instead of generated data, we will use the iris dataset that is built into the Scikit Learn. Specifically, we will find an optimal line through data points where the x-value is the petal width and the y-value is the sepal length. We choose these two because there appears to be a linear relationship between them, as we will see in the graphs at the end. We will also talk more about the effects of different loss functions in the next section, but for now we will use the L2 loss function.


Connecting the Classroom to Careers Through AI Explorations - EdSurge News

Artificial intelligence is an increasingly prevalent part of our everyday lives. From live-updating, turn-by-turn driving directions to responsive voice-controlled digital assistants--all in the palms of our hands--we are constantly interacting with computer programming where machines learn from experience and adjust to new data to perform human-like tasks. For children growing up right now, AI will undoubtedly be a part of their future lives and jobs. So, it's critical that students understand computational thinking and know how machine learning works. "It's important that kids leave our classrooms with real-world knowledge and industry-standard software and technical experience under their belt," says Teresa Blizman-Schmitt, a sixth through eighth grade computer science and business education teacher in Vernon, CT.


How observability helps Quill in its mission to help kids write better

#artificialintelligence

One of the concerns as schools closed at the height of the COVID-19 lockdown earlier this year was its impact on the progress of already disadvantaged pupils. Denied in-person attention as they grappled with remote learning, would they fall even further behind? The response from many teachers across the US was to turn to Quill, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping low-income students improve their writing skills, which in less than six weeks saw over a million new students sign up for its online service. With just 22 members of staff, including a six-person software engineering team, the sudden demand was a test of the organization's resilience, driving its total user population above three million. For us, that was a huge spike in new users.


The 5 Methods to Improve your Communication Skills for Data Science

#artificialintelligence

"What is this?" That's one of the many statements I heard when I showed the progress I made on a project for my boss. "I don't understand what you have done here." "This isn't what I asked of you." Oh, How these one-line sentences can fill you up with anxiety. For a second, you begin to think that all your hard work has been put aside, and instead of appreciation, You're going to be served a whole platter of criticism.


How to Convert More Leads for AI Products and Services

#artificialintelligence

Last month we ran a podcast series on the AI in Industry podcast on the theme of "Advancing Your Career in the Era of AI", with a focus on how non-technical professionals can become more valuable in the market, and can become involved in AI projects and initiatives, without ever learning to code. I received twice as much feedback on this series as any other series we've ever run on the podcast - which surprised me. It surprised me because I think about everything on Emerj.com as being useful for nontechnical professionals. We've built our editorial calendar and our products around the needs of nontechnical professionals who want to make the most of their careers, but this recent series spoke to that topic directly. But hitting directly on the theme of "Advancing Your Career in the Era of AI" clearly hit a cord. For that reason, I've decided to release a three-part video and article series on that same topic, breaking down the lessons that were most important for me - and sharing a bit of my own story going from small-town martial arts instructor to international AI speaker and strategist.


Get a lifetime to Memrise Language Learning for $100

It takes time and practice to grasp any new skill, whether trying to code or picking up a new language. Moreover, we tend to learn quicker and have more fun throughout the process when it happens in an experiential way. After all, that's how we all learned our native language -- naturally. So, if you've been burned by a language-learning app in the past that relied on rogue memorization and strict grammar rules, it's time to break free and learn the natural way. A Memrise Language Learning: Lifetime Subscription uses a three-step approach that helps you acquire a second, third or even fourth language just like you did the first time around.


The Amazing Ways Duolingo Is Using Artificial Intelligence To Deliver Free Language Learning

#artificialintelligence

It's a challenge to learn a new language, especially once we're past 18 years old. But Duolingo, self-proclaimed as "the world's best way to learn a language" and seconded by reviewers at the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, is set to change that with an assist from artificial intelligence (AI). Duolingo launched in 2011, and through a powerful mix of personalized learning, immediate feedback and gamification/rewards, it has become one of the most downloaded educational apps today. Let's take a look at how artificial intelligence helps the company deliver personalized language lessons to its 300 million users. Founded in Pittsburgh by Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist Luis von Ahn, who is renowned for creating CAPTCHA, Duolingo's mission is to "make education free and accessible to everyone in the world."

Machine learning helps grow artificial organs

#artificialintelligence

Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Ivannikov Institute for System Programming, and the Harvard Medical School-affiliated Schepens Eye Research Institute have developed a neural network capable of recognizing retinal tissues during the process of their differentiation in a dish. Unlike humans, the algorithm achieves this without the need to modify cells, making the method suitable for growing retinal tissue for developing cell replacement therapies to treat blindness and conducting research into new drugs. The study was published in Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience. In multicellular organisms, the cells making up different organs and tissues are not the same. They have distinct functions and properties, acquired in the course of development. They start out the same, as so-called stem cells, which have the potential to become any kind of cell the mature organism incorporates.
