Karnataka full of educational opportunities: Ashwath Narayan

#artificialintelligence

Except for medical courses, students can get seats in whichever branch of study they want in Karnataka as the State is full of educational opportunities, said Higher Education Minister C.N. Ashwath Narayan, participating in the 20th edition of The Hindu Education Plus Career Counselling 2022 on Saturday at Chowdaiah Memorial Hall here. The event saw huge turnout with close to 1,000 students and parents at the event that offered guidance from experts in fields ranging from medicine to engineering to general education and even UPSC and CET. "The gross enrolment in higher education in the State has increased by 6% in three years - to 34% in the higher education sector,'' said the Minister. Listing out the measures taken by the government to improve the sector, he said, "We are competing with the entire world, not with the neighbouring States.'' With around 17 higher education institutions, including medical and engineering colleges, available under a single roof, students and parents were seen getting information about the colleges, various courses, fee structure, infrastructure, and placement.


Student-powered machine learning

#artificialintelligence

From their early days at MIT, and even before, Emma Liu '22, MNG '22, Yo-whan "John" Kim '22, MNG '22, and Clemente Ocejo '21, MNG '22 knew they wanted to perform computational research and explore artificial intelligence and machine learning. "Since high school, I've been into deep learning and was involved in projects," says Kim, who participated in a Research Science Institute (RSI) summer program at MIT and Harvard University and went on to work on action recognition in videos using Microsoft's Kinect. As students in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science who recently graduated from the Master of Engineering (MEng) Thesis Program, Liu, Kim, and Ocejo have developed the skills to help guide application-focused projects. Working with the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab, they have improved text classification with limited labeled data and designed machine-learning models for better long-term forecasting for product purchases. For Kim, "it was a very smooth transition and … a great opportunity for me to continue working in the field of deep learning and computer vision in the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab." Collaborating with researchers from academia and industry, Kim designed, trained, and tested a deep learning model for recognizing actions across domains -- in this case, video.

#artificialintelligence

Note: 4.0/5 (31 notes) 9,063 students Let's get this straight and to the point. Man has long feared the rise of the machine, fearing that his own creation might become really smarter or intelligent and more sophisticated than he is. However, while AI and machine learning are rapidly altering our environment and propelling the Fourth Industrial Revolution, humanity does not need to be concerned. Artificial Intelligence (AI) will provide people with the ability to focus on the aspects of their occupations or jobs that are most rewarding to them and the time is coming soon. We must also note that Artificial intelligence is influencing the future of almost every sector and every person on the planet.


Artificial Intelligence in SEO (2022 Extreme Edition) - Coursemetry

#artificialintelligence

Note: 3.8/5 (279 notes) 36,854 students Welcome to experience the course "Artificial Intelligence in SEO (2022 Extreme Edition)". Looking for the word called "Popularity" to come to life? It's good to be heard, of course, and everything, but is that really the point? To be able to applaud and say, yeah… I had 1,000,000 visits last year to my website… that may be amazing, but why is website traffic important to your business or any business, for that matter? Website traffic (or the number of visitors to your website) is significant because the number of visitors is equal to the number of new customer opportunities.


Artificial Intelligence in App Creation: Beginners Edition - Coursemetry

#artificialintelligence

Note: 4.1/5 (122 notes) 39,729 students Welcome to experience the course "Artificial Intelligence in App Creation: Beginners Edition". Today, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, and Deep Learning technologies are used in diverse fields as part of the daily life of large organizations across the globe. The rapid speed of AI growth demonstrates that it is a groundbreaking technology designed to transform the way people use devices and conduct business: achievements in unmanned aerial vehicles, the ability to beat people in chess and sporting games, automated customer service, and analytical systems – of course. Talking about the business, development, or marketing field, for instance, it is worth noting that Artificial Intelligence does not apply in a pure form to real self-aware intelligence machines in this sense. Instead, it can be considered a generic term for the number of software powered by automation that is being used by developers of websites and smartphone apps. They include the recognition of images and speech, cognitive computing, automated processing, and machine learning – for that matter.


District Says 'No Looking Back' After Using Artificial Intelligence Routing System

#artificialintelligence

One day Butch Sargent was contacted by the Jasper Police, telling him about a disturbance in a certain area. "I don't want anyone to think Jasper's unsafe but we had a police problem one afternoon and a whole community was shut down," recalls Sargent, transportation director at Jasper City School District in Alabama, located about 40 miles northwest of Birmingham. "They called to tell me what blocks to shut down and I was able to reroute those students" in the affected areas. Routefinder PLUS made the difference because it is so user-friendly. It's been a baptism by fire for Sargent.


International lab dedicated to artificial intelligence kicks-off in Montreal

#artificialintelligence

Montreal-based centre unites strengths of McGill University, ÉTS, Mila, CNRS, Université Paris-Saclay, and CentraleSupélec A consortium of research organizations has gathered together to form a new International Research Laboratory (IRL) focused on artificial intelligence (AI) in Montreal. The new centre gathers together McGill University, École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), Mila – Quebec AI Institute, France’s Centre Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), Université Paris-Saclay, and the École CentraleSupélec. The move confirms Montreal’s status as a leader in AI. While great strides have been made in AI recently, there is still a pressing need for new theoretical knowledge to better understand not only the capacities of this new technology, but how it achieves its results. The ILLS will focus on five main themes of research: fundamental aspects of artificial intelligence, sequential (real-time) machine learning, robust autonomous systems, natural language and speech processing, and applications to computer vision, signals, and information processing. In addition, the new centre will emphasize interdisciplinary collaborations with an aim to develop new methodologies and integrate these techniques into learning systems. “This new laboratory confirms Montreal’s global leadership in AI,” said Benoit Boulet, Associate Vice-Principal, Research & Innovation at McGill University. “This is a major hub with a talent pool that continues to deepen, and McGill researchers and students are embedded at every level of this activity. This new initiative will offer opportunities for our researchers to make even more breakthrough discoveries.” “The expertise of ÉTS in AI includes several laboratories and research chairs in artificial intelligence. This collaboration between France and Quebec makes it possible to innovate and deepen research in AI, a cross-cutting discipline from which we can benefit in many fields, including health, the built environment, robotics, and the Internet of Things. It is therefore with pride that ÉTS welcomes the new ILLS centre within its establishment,” said Christian Casanova, Director of Research and Partnerships at ÉTS. “Through its tools of international cooperation, CNRS supports the most promising cutting-edge joint research projects. The new international research laboratory brings together a powerful network of researchers from France and Québec to advance the knowledge and applications of AI. For the CNRS, this new lab is also an opportunity to strengthen more broadly its ties with the whole Canadian AI community,” said Antoine Petit, Chairman and CEO of CNRS. “AI at Paris-Saclay involves nearly 1,000 researchers, teacher-researchers, engineers and technicians and around forty laboratories, grouped together within our DataIA Institute. We will make our contribution to the ILLS in the form of the mobility of researchers, including the reception of Canadian colleagues at Paris-Saclay, the reception of Masters trainees, thesis funding in particular/among others. The University of Paris-Saclay is honored and proud to be associated with this signing ceremony for the creation of the IRL ILLS and to ensure its joint supervision" added Michel Guidal, Deputy Vice-President Research Sciences and Engineering at Université Paris-Saclay. “The ILLS, resulting from an unprecedented and international union, offers a unique potential for progress in the field of AI. It is an honor for CentraleSupélec to participate with our prestigious partners in this laboratory. Backed by this research, our teaching will thus be at the forefront of the world in terms of AI,” added Romain Soubeyran, Director of CentraleSupélec. The ILLS will join a burgeoning artificial intelligence (AI) sector in Montreal, which has attracted other major investments from government and business for the past several years. As a result, the city is one of the world’s leading hubs in this domain, with an estimated 27,000 workers in AI-related technologies and over 14,000 post-secondary students enrolled in AI-related study programs. The ILLS is the latest such laboratory to be launched in Canada, specifically in Quebec. In 2014, the CNRS and the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologie (FRQNT) signed a letter of intent to support and promote the tradition of scientific cooperation that exists between France and Quebec. This collaboration has resulted in two International Research Laboratories in Quebec, as well as other shared research activities across the province. The CNRS has also established three other IRLs in Canada in partnership with other institutions. Present at the signing ceremony were: Frédéric Sanchez (Consul General of France), Remi Quirion (Quebec’s Chief Scientist), Antoine Petit (CNRS), Suzanne Fortier (McGill University), Francois Gagnon (ETS), Michel Guidal (Université Paris-Saclay), Franck Richecoeur (École CentraleSupélec), and Laurence Beaulieu (Mila). About McGill University Founded in Montreal, Quebec, in 1821, McGill University is Canada’s top ranked medical doctoral university. McGill is consistently ranked as one of the top universities, both nationally and internationally. It is a world-renowned institution of higher learning with research activities spanning three campuses, 11 faculties, 13 professional schools, 300 programs of study and over 39,000 students, including more than 10,400 graduate students.
