This High-Intensity 14.5 Hour Bundle Will Help You Help Computers Address Some of Humanity's Biggest Problems


In this course, intended to expand upon your knowledge of neural networks and deep learning, you'll harness these concepts for computer vision using convolutional neural networks. Going in-depth on the concept of convolution, you'll discover its wide range of applications, from generating image effects to modeling artificial organs. Explore the StreetView House Number (SVHN) dataset using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) Build convolutional filters that can be applied to audio or imaging Extend deep neural networks w/ just a few functions Note: we strongly recommend taking The Deep Learning & Artificial Intelligence Introductory Bundle before this course. The Lazy Programmer is a data scientist, big data engineer, and full stack software engineer. For his master's thesis he worked on brain-computer interfaces using machine learning.

New 'deep learning' technique enables robot mastery of skills via trial and error


New'deep learning' technique enables robot mastery of skills via trial and error. UC Berkeley researchers have developed algorithms that enable robots to learn motor tasks through trial and error using a process that more closely approximates the way humans learn, marking a major milestone in the field of artificial intelligence. They demonstrated their technique, a type of reinforcement learning, by having a robot complete various tasks -- putting a clothes hanger on a rack, assembling a toy plane, screwing a cap on a water bottle, and more -- without pre-programmed details about its surroundings. "What we're reporting on here is a new approach to empowering a robot to learn," said Professor Pieter Abbeel of UC Berkeley's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences. "The key is that when a robot is faced with something new, we won't have to reprogram it.

Artificial Intelligence And Deep Learning Are On The Business School Syllabus


In a Harvard Business School classroom in Boston, MA, robots are on the rise. MBA students are trying to crack a case study on the self-driving cars pioneered by Tesla, Google, and Uber. What is the potential for robots to reshape our roads? And what are the challenges and opportunities of entering that business? This is a case that David Yoffie, professor of international business administration, believes is essential reading for tomorrow's business leaders.

10 Famous Machine Learning Experts


Unlike most other lists of top experts, this one is a hand-picked selection, not based on influence or Klout scores, or the number of Twitter followers and re-tweets, or other similar metrics. Each of these experts has his/her own Wikipedia page. Some might not even have a Twitter account. All of them have had a very strong academic and research career in the most prestigious places. Jeffrey Hawkins is the American founder of Palm Computing (where he invented the Palm Pilot) and Handspring (where he invented the Treo).
