On Theory of Model-Agnostic Meta-Learning Algorithms

#artificialintelligence

Based on a joint work with Aryan Mokhtari, UT Austin, and Asu Ozdaglar, MIT. Imagine sitting in your autonomous car, going for a vacation. Your vehicle should follow the directions provided by the navigation app, and also use multiple sensors to monitor other vehicles, road signs, street light, etc. As a result, during the course of your journey, your car might need to take actions within a few seconds, such as turning or stopping. The question is how should your vehicle be programmed to be able to adapt to the new tasks within a short amount of time and limited data.


A Sobering Message About the Future at AI's Biggest Party

#artificialintelligence

More than 13,000 artificial intelligence mavens flocked to Vancouver this week for the world's leading academic AI conference, NeurIPS. The venue included a maze of colorful corporate booths aiming to lure recruits for projects like software that plays doctor. Google handed out free luggage scales and socks depicting the colorful bikes employees ride on its campus, while IBM offered hats emblazoned with "I A ." Tuesday night, Google and Uber hosted well-lubricated, over-subscribed parties. At a bleary 8:30 the next morning, one of Google's top researchers gave a keynote with a sobering message about AI's future. Blaise Aguera y Arcas praised the revolutionary technique known as deep learning that has seen teams like his get phones to recognize faces and voices.

The truth is most consumers interact with technology incorporating AI every day. From the searches we perform in Google to the advertisements we see on social media, AI is an ever-present feature of our lives. To help nonspecialists grasp the degree to which AI has been woven into the fabric of modern society, 12 experts from Forbes Technology Council detail some applications of AI that many may not be aware of. Calling customer service used to be as exciting as seeing a dentist.


Is Artificial Intelligence in Agriculture The Way of the Future?

#artificialintelligence

AI having applications in various sectors including agriculture has completely transformed the approaches of the agriculture market. AI in Agriculture helps the farmers in examining weather, soil, and field data to improve farming operations and crop productivity. AI in the agriculture market seems to be driven by the Internet of Things (IoT) due to its ability to revolutionize and transform current farming methods to a new level. Although, collecting accurate field data requires high initial investments which may hamper the growth of AI in the agriculture market. Some of the leading companies influencing the market are Ag Leader Technology, Trimble, Agribotix, Granular, SAP, Mavrx, PrecisionHawk, aWhere, IBM and Prospera Technologies.

IBM Tech Trends To Watch In 2020 … And Beyond

#artificialintelligence

In the decade now drawing to a close, much of the world's business and everyday life became fully digital. But innovation is far from over. The 2020s will see further refinement of established technologies and the practical rollout of new modes, like quantum computing, that are still at the experimental stage. In December 2029, we'll no doubt be remarking on inventions that today we still can't imagine. But for now, here is IBM's preview of the year and decade ahead.


The Ethical Dimension of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

However, the frequency in which the Canadian government employs AI is worrying for some. Fears of governments using AI to infringe on private freedoms are very real, as some countries, such as China, have begun to use facial recognition software for police surveillance. Furthermore, people are rapidly losing confidence in social media platforms and Internet security, often citing the absence of human intervention in the decisions that algorithms make as the cause. Furthermore, 54% of North Americans express concern for their online privacy, and the non-consensual use of personal data by social media companies and federal governments do little to ease these fears. While more Canadians are more concerned about their online security due to threats posed by internet companies, at least 59% fear for their personal information being used by their own government.


Machine Learning Basics What Is Machine Learning? Introduction To Machine Learning Simplilearn

#artificialintelligence

This Machine Learning basics video will help you understand what is Machine Learning, what are the types of Machine Learning - supervised, unsupervised & reinforcement learning, how Machine Learning works with simple examples, and will also explain how Machine Learning is being used in various industries. Machine learning is a core sub-area of artificial intelligence; it enables computers to get into a mode of self-learning without being explicitly programmed. When exposed to new data, these computer programs are enabled to learn, grow, change, and develop by themselves. So, put simply, the iterative aspect of machine learning is the ability to adapt to new data independently. This is possible as programs learn from previous computations and use "pattern recognition" to produce reliable results.
