AI-to-AI communication in advertising increases brand safety and improves ad performance

#artificialintelligence

A marketer inputs brand names, product names and celebrity names that the brand has identified as important to their campaign. Watson Discovery News analysis of one article, "What young people can learn from Tom Brady's Super Bowl Win," results in a high sentiment score and activates a positive keyword phrase "Super Bowl Win" in the Rocket Fuel platform. This article would receive a negative sentiment score and trigger negative keywords ("Concussion, "Football Player Safety") in the Rocket Fuel Platform. While no single AI technique can meet every need, the Discovery News AI was developed to find and interpret millions of articles each week to determine sentiment; Rocket Fuel's AI was developed for the specific task of transforming millions of customer data points into predictive marketing intelligence.


AI seeks fantasy football challengers

BBC News

Computer scientists at University of Southampton are testing an artificially intelligent tool for predicting Premier League football results. The machine learning algorithm has managed to beat BBC football commentator Mark Lawrenson's predictions for two seasons in a row. Fantasy football is a game in which users assemble an imaginary team of real-life footballers and score points based on the players' actual statistical performance during the season. Fantasy managers can compete with Squadguru's AI in the Challenge the Squadguru league in the free Fantasy Premier League salary cap game by entering league code 2917382-677658.


Smart Software Learns to Run And Play Football - Learning Simplify

#artificialintelligence

The idea of a dystopia in which intelligent machines learn human tasks and resolve to put an end to our existence, so common in literature and science fiction cinema, seems to be only a matter of time. The intelligent software uses machine learning and was created just to develop skills on its own. In the future, DeepLoco can make a very impressive contribution to the development of games in the future. If the evolving characters of Mordor Shadows are already attractive, imagine characters not controlled by the player with the ability to learn new skills as the game unfolds?

Train your Deep Learning Faster: FreezeOut

@machinelearnbot

The authors of this paper propose a method to increase training speed by freezing layers. The authors demonstrated a way to freeze the layers one by one as soon as possible, resulting in fewer and fewer backward passes, which in turn lowers training time. The authors experimented with different values for Equation 2.1 The authors tried scaling the initial learning rate so that each layer was trained for an equal amount of time. I demonstrated 2(and half of my own) very recent and novel techniques to improve accuracy and lower training time by fine tuning learning rates.


Behold the Kickmen: how a game designer who hates football made the ultimate football sim

The Guardian

In an early development video, Marshall even recommends setting match duration to short times because, he reminds us, football is'just kicking and goals'. So for a game jam-type thing, I thought I'd make a silly football game. After 15 months, Behold the Kickmen turned from a joke, into a commercially released game for PC and Mac. It's not interesting if a football game designer is making a football game.

If you really know about artificial intelligence, you could earn as much as an NFL quarterback

#artificialintelligence

AI is the act of imbuing a machine or a piece of software with the capabilities that we consider human cognition, basically making a machine act like a human brain. "The machine learning system has to come up with a generator that would spit out that data set, working backwards from the data to a mathematical model, and then it is no longer limited to the data you've observed – AI can predict what tomorrow's equity prices will be." "Big data really means more data than you have the capability to deal with: high volume, high velocity that you want to process quickly and variability," Eck said. "The interesting thing about deep learning is its ability to operate on unstructured data."
