The Fundamental Limits of Machine Learning - Facts So Romantic


To tackle my aunt's puzzle, the expert systems approach would need a human to squint at the first three rows and spot the following pattern: The human could then instruct the computer to follow the pattern x * (y 1) z. Even when machines teach themselves, the preferred patterns are chosen by humans: Should facial recognition software infer explicit if/then rules, or should it treat each feature as an incremental piece of evidence for/against each possible person? And so they designed deep neural networks, a machine learning technique most notable for its ability to infer higher-level features from more basic information. These questions have constrained efforts to apply neural networks to new problems; a network that's great at facial recognition is totally inept at automatic translation.

Insight into the concept of Fuzzy Logic in Artificial Intelligence


Inference Engine It accepts and promotes human interpretation by making fuzzy inference according to inputs and IF-THEN rules. A number of other concepts are associated with fuzzy logic such as fuzzy set theory, fuzzy modelling, the fuzzy control system that have been developed for further enhancement. In control systems theory, if the fuzzy interpretation of the problem is appropriate and if the fuzzy theory is developed precise and correct, then fuzzy controllers can be accordingly designed and they work quite well to their advantages. Most of the fuzzy logic control systems are knowledge-based systems which mean either their fuzzy models or their fuzzy logic controllers are described by fuzzy logic IF-THEN rules.

High schooler makes 3D-printed, machine learning-powered eye disease diagnosis system


If, like me, you're one of those people who worries that you haven't accomplished much in your life, you probably shouldn't read this profile of Kavya Kopparapu, a teenager who has probably done more in her time at high school than I've done since I graduated. Most recently, she created a cheap, portable diagnosis system for a common eye affliction her grandfather suffers from, but which often goes undetected and leads to blindness. A 3D-printed mount and lens lets retinal scans be taken with an iPhone, and a machine learning system using readily available services and trained on thousands of such images does the diagnosis. She presented her work last month at O'Reilly's AI conference.

Marcus Hutchins arrest: Computer expert who 'helped to end NHS cyber attack' charged with malware offences in US

The Independent

A British computer expert who helped shut down the WannaCry cyber attack that crippled the NHS has been arrested in the US for his alleged role in an unrelated malware attack. Mr Hutchins is accused of creating, selling, and maintaining the malware, in collaboration with an unnamed codefendant, between July 2014 and July 2015. I'll be crowdfunding legal fees soon Andrew Mabbitt, a cyber security company founder who travelled to the conference with Mr Hutchins, says he does not believe the charges against him. The indictment alleges Mr Hutchins created the malware and attempted to sell it for $3,000.

Web 3.0: Have we arrived? - Learn more about Expert System


In 1999, Tim Barners-Lee stated: "I have a dream for the web [in which computers] become capable of analyzing all the data on the web. A semantic web should gather and categorize all of the information in a way that can be comprehensible for both computers and humans. In Cogito, semantic technology combined with the machine learning approach can make computers understand information as a human does. If crossing the line of web 3.0 was yet a dream in '99 because we were waiting for a true semantic web, today, thanks to new adaptive solutions like Cogito, we can see that dream come true.

HUNT FOR TABERNACLE Experts search for site that held Ark of the Covenant

"We have just begun the process of accumulating evidence but we're confident that the tabernacle rested at Shiloh," he said, adding that that the tabernacle was located at Shiloh for about 350 years. A host of other items were also found during the recent excavation including objects used to create seals and scarabs - ancient beetle-shaped carvings that were used for inscriptions and amulets. ABR's research is focused firmly on locating the tabernacle site at Shiloh, and Stripling is confident that future digs will deliver results. "We're revealing the material culture of the ancient cultures, they often do shed light on the biblical texts," Stripling added.

Artificial intelligence is fact, not fantasy! » Banking Technology


This is where the AI techniques of Natural Language Processing and Deep Machine Learning really come into their own. It provides the ability to understand the interactions and intelligently develop insights from previous behaviours based on past experiences, events and behavioural data. Powered by the three key disciplines of AI – deep machine learning, natural language processing and knowledge based systems – IPM ensures machines can precisely process every payment and fully understand its purpose by applying human-like reasoning to every transaction. However, based on our existing customer experiences, we know different and truly believe that IPM has the potential to radically reduce costs, accelerate product innovation and significantly reduce time to market.

Google's research chief questions value of 'Explainable AI'


Despite being used to make life-altering decisions from medical diagnoses to loan limits, the inner workings of various machine learning architectures – including deep learning, neural networks and probabilistic graphical models – are incredibly complex and increasingly opaque. Just as humans worked to make sense and explain their actions after the fact, a similar method could be adopted in AI, Norvig explained. "So we might end up being in the same place with machine learning where we train one system to get an answer and then we train another system to say – given the input of this first system, now it's your job to generate an explanation." Besides, Norvig added yesterday: "Explanations alone aren't enough, we need other ways of monitoring the decision making process."

Web Application Security: Threats, Countermeasures, and Pitfalls

IEEE Computer

Penetration testing is a crucial defense against common web application security threats such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting attacks. A proposed web vulnerability scanner automatically generates test data with combinative evasion techniques, significantly expanding test coverage and revealing more vulnerabilities.

Artificial Intelligence Is About Machine Reasoning @CloudExpo #AI #ML #Cloud


Artificial Intelligence in a Nutshell: About Smart Machines and Teaching Children Following Prof. McCarthy's AI definition above, we are talking about a vigorous system. Machine Learning in a Nutshell: Jump into Your Data Lake - Again and Again Machine learning (ML) is a discipline where a program or system can dynamically alter its behavior based on the ever-changing data. Everyone who wants to get a scientific perspective on Machine Reasoning I recommend to read the Le on Bottou's paper "From Machine Learning to Machine Reasoning". Kaplan describes reasoning systems as a concept that deconstructs "[...] tasks requiring expertise into two components: "knowledge base" - a collection of facts, rules and relationships about a specific domain of interest represented in symbolic form - and a general-purpose "inference engine" that described how to manipulate and combine these symbols."
