Council Post: Deep Learning? Sometimes It Pays To Go Shallow


Deep learning is the current darling of AI. Used by behemoths such as Microsoft, Google and Amazon, it leverages artificial neural networks that "learn" through exposure to immense amounts of data. By immense we mean internet-scale amounts -- or billions of documents at a minimum. If your project draws upon publicly available data, deep learning can be a valuable tool. The same is true if budget isn't an issue.

Classification with Localization: Convert any Keras Classifier to a Detector


Image classification is used to solve several Computer Vision problems; right from medical diagnoses, to surveillance systems, on to monitoring agricultural farms. There are innumerable possibilities to explore using Image Classification. If you have completed the basic courses on Computer Vision, you are familiar with the tasks and routines involved in Image Classification tasks. Image Classification tasks follow a standard flow – where you pass an image to a deep learning model and it outcomes the class or the label of the object present. While learning Computer Vision, most often a project that would be equivalent to your first hello world project, will most likely be an image classifier. You attempt to solve something like the digit recognition on MNIST Digits dataset or maybe the Cats and Dog Classification problem.

Interested In AI? Master Deep Learning & Get NLP Certified


The world of artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the way we live, though it has become something of an acronym soup. From DL to ML, SSD to CNN (not this one), there are many interesting facets of AI and plenty of opportunities for advancements that affect our everyday lives. It's a lucrative career field well worth exploring, and we've got just the place to start.

TensorFlow 2.0 Practical


Artificial Intelligence (AI) revolution is here and TensorFlow 2.0 is finally here to make it happen much faster! TensorFlow 2.0 is Google's most powerful, recently released open source platform to build and deploy AI models in practice. AI technology is experiencing exponential growth and is being widely adopted in the Healthcare, defense, banking, gaming, transportation and robotics industries. The purpose of this course is to provide students with practical knowledge of building, training, testing and deploying Artificial Neural Networks and Deep Learning models using TensorFlow 2.0 and Google Colab. The course provides students with practical hands-on experience in training Artificial Neural Networks and Convolutional Neural Networks using real-world dataset using TensorFlow 2.0 and Google Colab.

Emerging Behaviour of our Driving Intelligence with End to End Deep Learning


This video shows our Driving Intelligence completing an unprotected right turn through an intersection near our London King's Cross HQ. This is one of the hardest manoeuvres for autonomy and behaviour Wayve has been able to learn with end-to-end deep learning. Unlike other approaches, we learn to drive from data using camera-first sensing without needing an HD-map. We train our system to understand the world around it with computer vision and learn to drive with imitation and reinforcement learning. In this example, our Driving Intelligence is able to navigate the complex lane layout, avoiding the car which runs the red light and passing the pedestrians with human-like confidence.

A Deep Learning Technique, Decoding The Rubik's Cube - ELE Times


A deep-learning technique that can learn a so-called "fitness function" from a set of sample solutions to a problem has been devised. This technique was initially trained to solve the Rubik's cube, the popular 3-D combination puzzle invented by Hungarian sculptor Ernő Rubik. The aim was to use machine learning to learn to solve the Rubik's cube. Rubik's cube is a very complex puzzle, but any of the vast numbers of combinations is at most 20 steps from a solution. So the approach here is to try and solve the problem by learning to do each of those steps individually. The technique is based on two main approaches: stepwise learning and the use of a deep neural network.

Activation Functions in Deep Neural Networks


In order to understand the importance of activation functions, we must first recap how a neural network computes a prediction/output. This is generally referred to as Forward Propagation. During forward propagation, the neural network receives an input vector x and outputs a prediction vector y. Each layer of the network is connected via a so-called weight matrix with the next layer. In total, we have 4 weight matrices W1, W2, W3, and W4.

Way beyond AlphaZero: Berkeley and Google work shows robotics may be the deepest machine learning of all


The seemingly simple task of grasping an object from a large cluster of different kinds of objects is "one of the most significant open problems in robotics," according to Sergey Levine and collaborators. Grasping is a good example of problems that bedevil real-world machine learning, including latency that throws off the expected order of events, and goals that may be difficult to specify. The vast majority of artificial intelligence has been developed in an idealized environment: a computer simulation that dodges the bumps of the real world. Be it DeepMind's AlphaMu program for Go and chess and Atari or OpenAI's GPT-3 for language generation, the most sophisticated deep learning programs have all benefitted from a pruned set of constraints by which software is improved. For that reason, the hardest and perhaps the most promising work of deep learning may lie in the realm of robotics, where the real world introduces constraints that cannot be fully anticipated.

[N] Mastering PyTorch - hands on deep learning with PyTorch is on Amazon


I recently wrote a book on deep learning - Mastering PyTorch which is now available on Amazon. It is an applied deep learning book with tons of exercises on training, testing, deploying, interpreting .. various kinds of deep learning models, using PyTorch. If you want to get hands-on proficiency in deep learning, this book can be a good resource. I have tried to keep the contents easy to grasp while retaining all the essential technical concepts.If you do get a copy, please let me know how you found it, and possibly leave an Amazon review. You can also read a synopsis of the book here.

Bioinformatics tool accurately tracks synthetic DNA


A Rice University computer science lab challenges -- and beats -- deep learning in a test to see if a new bioinformatics approach effectively tracks the lab of origin of a synthetic genetic sequence.
