Using the Power of Deep Learning for Cyber Security (Part 2)


We are in the midst of a deep learning revolution. Unprecedented success is being achieved in designing deep neural network models for building computer vision and Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications. State-of-the-art benchmarks are disrupted and updated on a regular basis in tasks like object detection, language translation, and sentiment analysis. It's a great time to work with deep learning! The application of deep learning in Information Security (InfoSec) is still very much in its nascent stages.

Enterprise Search and Machine Learning: A Match Whose Time Has Come


Over the last few years, artificial intelligence and machine learning have increasingly come up in conversations about enterprise search. As artificial intelligence (AI) and its cousin, machine learning (ML), increased in accuracy and ease of integration, instances of them being directly integrated with or running alongside of search to improve results increased as well. But chances are you remember when search relevancy was based on simple metrics like term frequency -- the document with the largest number of instances was ranked highest, and documents with fewer instances ranked lower. You were able to provide stop words like "the" and "of" whose frequent use typically added no value in retrieving relevant documents. The only content really useful to the search engine was the terms in the user query.

BP explores Azure AI to boost safety and drive business success


As part of a corporate-wide digital transformation, BP is embracing artificial intelligence (AI) to change the way the company works. Using Microsoft Azure Machine Learning service and its automated machine learning capabilities, BP scientists can now explore the potential of new energy deposits. They can also build more finely tuned, accurate models in dramatically less time, helping them better gauge available hydrocarbon reserves.

Converting a Simple Deep Learning Model from PyTorch to TensorFlow


Now, we need to convert the .pt There are two things we need to take note here: 1) we need to pass a dummy input through the PyTorch model first before exporting, and 2) the dummy input needs to have the shape (1, dimension(s) of single input). For example, if the single input is an image array with the shape (number of channels, height, width), then the dummy input needs to have the shape (1, number of channels, height, width). The dummy input is needed as an input placeholder for the resulting TensorFlow model). The following snippet shows the process of exporting the PyTorch model in the ONNX format.

A Glossary For Next-Generation AI


As business adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) expands rapidly, so does the vocabulary used to describe the technology and the myriad ways companies are putting it to work. While terms such as algorithm, machine learning and neural networks have become as familiar today as cloud, SaaS and IoT, dozens of new AI terms and trends are already entering the field or rising in importance. Here's a look at some of those--and why you should become familiar with each. A machine-learning training technique in which scientists intentionally expose algorithms to corrupted data to trick them into making faulty predictions or reach incorrect conclusions. The technique allows developers to uncover security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers or to examine the results for hidden bias that could lead to flawed results.

Amazon heads off facial ID rebellion


Shareholders seeking to halt Amazon's sale of its facial recognition technology to US police forces have been defeated in two votes that sought to pressure the company into a rethink. Civil rights campaigners had said it was "perhaps the most dangerous surveillance technology ever developed". But investors rejected the proposals at the company's annual general meeting. That meant less than 50% voted for either of the measures. A breakdown of the results has yet to be disclosed.

The Age of Artificial Intelligence Is Here


Artificial intelligence has long been thought of in terms similar to that of fusion power -- it's always 20 years away. Outside, it was a normal morning. Inside, looking out the window and barely noticing the chickadee, the business woman, a manager at a large call center downtown, waited for her morning coffee. It was a short wait. Her coffee maker knew that she woke at 5:30 a.m. It knew that because the alarm clock in the woman's bedroom sensed her movement and saved that information to the woman's Amazon Web Services (AWS) account. The coffee maker, also tied to that AWS account, took the hint and turned itself on. Ten minutes later, the shower came on in the bathroom. This also was noted by the house's systems and that data point was duly recorded by the woman's AWS account. That was the next cue for the coffee maker. It was plumbed directly into the house's water lines, and it opened the valve and filled itself with just the right amount of water to brew the coffee. It was brewing as the woman dressed, and five minutes after the woman appeared, the coffee was delivered to her by her Boston Dynamics personal assistant. She took a sip, just as the chickadee flew away. It was now 6:30 a.m., and time to leave for the office. Just like every other weekday, it would be a peaceful commute. As she left her apartment building and the door closed behind her, her ride was just pulling up to the curb.

Amazon shareholders reject banning sale of facial recognition software to law enforcement

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

San Francisco supervisors approved a ban on police using facial recognition technology, making it the first city in the U.S. with such a restriction. Amazon shareholders will continue selling the company's facial recognition technology "Rekognition" to governments and law enforcement agencies. During the e-commerce giant's annual meeting Wednesday, shareholders rejected all proposals including two related to Rekognition, Amazon confirmed to USA TODAY. One proposed banning the sales of the technology and the other called for the company to conduct an independent study and issue a report on the risks of governments using the technology. Amazon did not release shareholder vote totals Wednesday but said information would be filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission later in the week.

Real-World Applications of AI in Design


AI is quickly becoming mainstream in many industries, including graphic design. The technology is making the designers giddy with excitement because AI can make the designing process so much faster and easier but -- it's also scary at the same time because we've seen what AI systems are capable of. One of the earliest examples of AI entering the graphic design industry is The Grid, a website which creates modern-looking websites for customers in minutes. Users just need to upload the content and using AI, the Grid will begin setting up the website. The website was launched in 2015.
