The Best Resources on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning


Half of this crazy year is behind us and summer is here. Over the years, we machine learning engineers at Ximilar have gathered a lot of interesting ML/AI material from which we draw. I have chosen the best ones from podcasts to online courses that I recommend to listen to, read, and check. Some of them are introductory, others more advanced. However, all of them are high-quality ones made by the best people in the field and they are worth checking.

Deep Learning In Gaming


Hi All - This event was originally going to be held during GDC week back in March but had to be postponed. Excited to be hosting this event virtually during GDC Summer on Aug 4th. Games have always been at the forefront of AI & they serve as a good testing bed for AI before we put it to use in the real world. Therefore, its natural to look into gaming to peek into new techniques being discovered in AI. What started with self-learning AI in games has now translated into solving real-world problems in computer vision, natural language processing, & self-driving cars.

Recurrent Neural Network with LSTM


Let me begin this article with a question -- Which of the following sentence makes sense? Its obvious that the second one makes sense as the sequence of the sentence is preserved. So, whenever the sequence is important we use RNN. RNNs in general and LSTMs, in particular, have received the most success when working with sequences of words and paragraphs, generally called natural language processing. Some of the famous technologies using RNN are Google Assistance, Google Translate, Stock Prediction, Image Captioning, and similarly many more.

Predicting heave and surge motions of a semi-submersible with neural networks


Real-time motion prediction of a vessel or a floating platform can help to improve the performance of motion compensation systems. It can also provide useful early-warning information for offshore operations that are critical with regard to motion. In this study, a long short-term memory (LSTM) -based machine learning model was developed to predict heave and surge motions of a semi-submersible. The training and test data came from a model test carried out in the deep-water ocean basin, at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. The motion and measured waves were fed into LSTM cells and then went through serval fully connected (FC) layers to obtain the prediction.

Predicting Energy Production


As created for AI4IMPACT's Deep Learning Datathon 2020, TEAM DEFAULT has created a neural-network-based deep learning model used for predicting energy production demand in France. The model was created using Smojo, on AI4IMPACT's innovative cloud-based learning and model deployment system. Our model was able to achieve a 0.131 test loss which beat persistence loss of 0.485 by a quite a fair margin. As the energy market becomes increasingly liberalized across the world, the free and open market has seen an uptick and importance for optimized energy demand. New and existing entrants turn to data and various methods to forecast energy consumption in hopes of turning over a profit.

Hot papers on arXiv from the past month – July 2020


Here are the most tweeted papers that were uploaded onto arXiv during July 2020. Results are powered by Arxiv Sanity Preserver. Abstract: Massive language models are the core of modern NLP modeling and have been shown to encode impressive amounts of commonsense and factual information. However, that knowledge exists only within the latent parameters of the model, inaccessible to inspection and interpretation, and even worse, factual information memorized from the training corpora is likely to become stale as the world changes. Knowledge stored as parameters will also inevitably exhibit all of the biases inherent in the source materials.

What Is Machine Learning? Why It Matters for Your Business?


Machine learning and Artificial intelligence are the new buzz words that are being thrown around more than any other trending technology today. It is starting to reshape how we think about building products. It's time we understood what it is and why it matters. Machine Learning: (ML) is an area of computational science that enables machines (computers) to undertake tasks without being explicitly programmed. The idea behind machine learning is that by training computers to analyze and interpret existing data from prior human interactions, machines are able to find patterns and structures in data.

A Simple Convolutional Neural Network Summary for Binary Image Classification With Keras.


Convolutional neural networks (CNN's) are the main deep learning tool to use for image processing. I recently used a CNN for my latest student project here at Flatiron and got to have a look at how they work and how they differ from dense neural networks, in addition to how they perform better when working with images and python. In my project, I was able to classify patient x-ray images to determine whether they had pneumonia or not. There are also many other uses for image processing in the medical field and in other fields of work and study. Next, we'll try to show the simplest, most basic breakdown of some of these steps so that you can get on your way to building a CNN for image classification with Keras.

Object Detection in 6 steps using Detectron2


Have you ever tried training an object detection model using a custom dataset of your own choice from scratch? If yes, you'd know how tedious the process would be. We need to start with building a model using a Feature Pyramid Network combined with a Region Proposal Network if we opt for region proposal based methods such as Faster R-CNN or we can also use one-shot detector algorithms like SSD and YOLO. Either of them is a bit complicated to work with if we want to implement it from scratch. We need a framework where we can use state-of-the-art models such as Fast, Faster, and Mask R-CNNs with ease.
