Take the case of a video game. A deep learning algorithm can be trained to play Mortal Kombat really well and will even be able to defeat humans once the algorithm becomes very proficient. Change the game to Tekken and the neural network will need to be trained all over again. This is because it does not understand the context.

Detection and Semiquantitative Analysis of Cardiomegaly, Pneumothorax, and Pleural Effusion on Chest Radiographs


To develop and evaluate deep learning models for the detection and semiquantitative analysis of cardiomegaly, pneumothorax, and pleural effusion on chest radiographs. In this retrospective study, models were trained for lesion detection or for lung segmentation. The first dataset for lesion detection consisted of 2838 chest radiographs from 2638 patients (obtained between November 2018 and January 2020) containing findings positive for cardiomegaly, pneumothorax, and pleural effusion that were used in developing Mask region-based convolutional neural networks plus Point-based Rendering models. Separate detection models were trained for each disease. The second dataset was from two public datasets, which included 704 chest radiographs for training and testing a U-Net for lung segmentation.

Deep Learning Approach to Detect Banana Plant Diseases


Hello folks:) This is my final year research project based on deep learning. Let me give an introduction about my project first. When we talk about banana it's a famous fruit that commonly available across the world, because it instantly boosts your energy. Bananas are one most consumed fruit in the world. According to modern calculations, Bananas are grown in around 107 countries since it makes a difference to lower blood pressure and to reduce the chance of cancer and asthma.

Deep learning and liver disease


Many medical imaging techniques have played a pivotal role in the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases, such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, positron emission tomography (PET), mammography, and X-ray. AI has made significant progress which allows machines to automatically represent and explain complicated data. It is widely applied in the medical field, especially in some domains that need imaging data analysis. According to Vivantil et al by using deep learning models based on longitudinal liver CT studies, new liver tumours could be detected automatically with a true positive rate of 86%, while the stand-alone detection rate was only 72% and this method achieved a precision of 87% and an improvement of 39% over the traditional SVM mode. CNN models which use ultrasound images to detect liver lesions were also developed. According to Liu et al by using a CNN model based on liver ultrasound images, the proposed method can effectively extract the liver capsules and accurately diagnose liver cirrhosis, with the diagnostic AUC being able to reach 0.968.

Introducing Lightning Flash -- From Deep Learning Baseline To Research in a Flash


Flash is a collection of tasks for fast prototyping, baselining and fine-tuning scalable Deep Learning models, built on PyTorch Lightning. Whether you are new to deep learning, or an experienced researcher, Flash offers a seamless experience from baseline experiments to state-of-the-art research. It allows you to build models without being overwhelmed by all the details, and then seamlessly override and experiment with Lightning for full flexibility. Continue reading to learn how to use Flash tasks to get state-of-the-art results in a flash. Over the past year, PyTorch Lightning has received an enthusiastic response from the community for decoupling research from boilerplate code, enabling seamless distributed training, logging, and reproducibility of deep learning research code.

Word Embeddings and Pre-training for Large Language Models (BERT, GPT)


In 2013, a paper was publish by Mikolov et al., that defined a Word2Vec model; its goal was to define words into a vectorized representation in some vector space based on its pretraining data (there are generally 2 variants CBOW and skip gram for Word2Vec). This was great for Deep learning models because you would take the text data and feed it into Word2Vec model (pre-trained on some large dataset), the result is a vector representation of the word. Then, use these vectors and pass into a DNN model (of some variant, say RNN/LSTM); the result is that we rely on the model to capture context representations in our data to acomplish a downstream task, say classification. Full responsibility is given to the model to learn context but not word representations, that was handled by Word2Vec. The key point to understand here is that words that have same spellings can mean differently upon the context, these words are called Homographs.

Hospitals deployed AI in mass to help with COVID-19; Research suggests they don't work


A June report from the Turing Institute, the U.K.'s center for data science and artificial intelligence, found that AI tools made little to no effect in combatting COVID-19. A separate study published in the British Medical Journal analyzed 232 algorithms designed to diagnose patients or predict how sick they may become with COVID-19. Researchers found none of them were fit for clinical use and only two were promising enough for future testing. A study published in Nature Machine Intelligence looked at 415 deep-learning models created to diagnose COVID-19 patients and predict patient risk from medical images. Researchers concluded none of them were fit for clinical use.

Quick Breakdown Of Deep Learning


Deep learning is based on the branch of machine learning, which is a subset of artificial intelligence. Since neural networks imitate the human brain and so deep learning will do. In deep learning, nothing is programmed explicitly. Basically, it is a machine learning class that makes use of numerous nonlinear processing units to perform feature extraction as well as transformation. The output from each preceding layer is taken as input by each one of the successive layers.
