Machine learning: Are we there yet?

#artificialintelligence

Google's search engine, Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa are examples of this. Yet there are important problems we can tackle in the next two years, such as security and anomaly detection, component failure, congestion, and optimized network orchestration. Machine learning systems are now learning how to analyze network behavior and predict network protocol anomalies that signal nascent problems in the network, such as congestion. You may wish to start using machine learning tools available today for your personal life, such as Apple's Siri or Amazon's Alexa, to experience how they learn over time about preferences and needs.


Brace yourselves: AI is set to explode in the next 4 years

#artificialintelligence

A new report predicts that artificial intelligence (AI) in the U.S. education sector will grow 47.5 percent through 2021. The report, Artificial Intelligence Market in the U.S. Education Sector 2017-2021, is based on in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. Because games have the potential to engage students while teaching them challenging education concepts in an engaging manner, vendors are incorporating AI features into games to enhance their interactivity. Educational games that include adaptive learning features give students frequent and timely suggestions for a guided learning experience.


First Deep Learning for coders MOOC launched by Jeremy Howard

@machinelearnbot

Deep Learning For Coders is a new online course that, for the first time, promises to teach coders how to create state of the art deep learning models. Jeremy says that this is First deep learning course to show end-to-end how to get state of the art results (including how to get a top place in a Kaggle competition) First code-centric full deep learning course (18 hours of lessons) First time that nearly every part of a convolutional neural net has been implemented as a spreadsheet!

The Future of Jobs and Jobs Training

#artificialintelligence

Automation, robotics, algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI) in recent times have shown they can do equal or sometimes even better work than humans who are dermatologists, insurance claims adjusters, lawyers, seismic testers in oil fields, sports journalists and financial reporters, crew members on guided-missile destroyers, hiring managers, psychological testers, retail salespeople, and border patrol agents. A recent study by labor economists found that "one more robot per thousand workers reduces the employment to population ratio by about 0.18-0.34 When Pew Research Center and Elon University's Imagining the Internet Center asked experts in 2014 whether AI and robotics would create more jobs than they would destroy, the verdict was evenly split: 48% of the respondents envisioned a future where more jobs are lost than created, while 52% said more jobs would be created than lost. This survey noted that employment is much higher among jobs that require an average or above-average level of preparation (including education, experience and job training); average or above-average interpersonal, management and communication skills; and higher levels of analytical skills, such as critical thinking and computer skills. A focus on nurturing unique human skills that artificial intelligence (AI) and machines seem unable to replicate: Many of these experts discussed in their responses the human talents they believe machines and automation may not be able to duplicate, noting that these should be the skills developed and nurtured by education and training programs to prepare people to work successfully alongside AI.


Ensemble Machine Learning in Python: Random Forest, AdaBoost

#artificialintelligence

We've already learned some classic machine learning models like k-nearest neighbor and decision tree. In this course you'll study ways to combine models like decision trees and logistic regression to build models that can reach much higher accuracies than the base models they are made of. In particular, we will study the Random Forest and AdaBoost algorithms in detail. Since deep learning is so popular these days, we will study some interesting commonalities between random forests, AdaBoost, and deep learning neural networks.


Machine Learning in A Year, by Per Harald Borgen - Dataconomy

#artificialintelligence

A few weeks in, I wanted to learn how to actually code machine learning algorithms, so I started a study group with a few of my peers. The most important takeaway from this period was the leap from non-vectorized to vectorized implementations of neural networks, which involved repeating linear algebra from university. So I asked my manager if I could spend some time learning stuff during my work hours as well, which he happily approved. Having gotten a basic understanding of neural networks at this point, I wanted to move on to deep learning.


Machine Learning: Regression Coursera

#artificialintelligence

About this course: Case Study - Predicting Housing Prices In our first case study, predicting house prices, you will create models that predict a continuous value (price) from input features (square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms,...). In this course, you will explore regularized linear regression models for the task of prediction and feature selection. You will be able to handle very large sets of features and select between models of various complexity. You will also analyze the impact of aspects of your data -- such as outliers -- on your selected models and predictions.


Serious challenges before our schools, students and professionals

#artificialintelligence

Our curriculum prepares us for a lifetime career, but a child today can expect to change jobs at least seven times over the course of their lives – and five of those jobs don't exist yet. We have already moved to a data driven economy in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and this is going to increase even more in the coming years and Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) become business as usual in every aspect of our lives. This can help them to gain knowledge in data analysis at the college level where they will have to learn some kind of a programming language like MATLAB which allows implementation of algorithms. While AI and ML are disrupting jobs, there is great potential to use AI in education.
