Artificial Intelligence sounds freaking amazing: humanoid robots, artificial conscious, self learning systems and understanding the human brain. I won't lie; these were the things that motivated me to look into Artificial Intelligence. And till a certain extent they still do. I started out doing Physics and Life Sciences. One thing that caught my attention was the advancements in the field of so called "Artificial Neural Networks".
Artificial Neural Networks with NeuroLab and Python You're going to learn hands-on artificial neural networks with neurolab, a lesser-known and traditional Python library for artificial intelligence. Description You're going to learn hands-on artificial neural networks with neurolab, a lesser-known and traditional Python library for artificial intelligence. This is a hands-on course and you will be working your way through with Python and Jupyter notebooks.
In this video we build on last week Multilayer perceptrons to allow for more flexibility in the architecture! However, we need to be careful about the layer of abstraction we put in place in order to facilitate the work of the user who want to simply fit and predict. Here we make use of the following three concept: Network, Layer and Neuron. These three components will be composed together to make a fully connected feedforward neural network neural network. For those who don't know a fully connected feedforward neural network is defined as follows (From Wikipedia): "A feedforward neural network is an artificial neural network wherein connections between the nodes do not form a cycle. As such, it is different from its descendant: recurrent neural networks. The feedforward neural network was the first and simplest type of artificial neural network devised. In this network, the information moves in only one direction, forward, from the input nodes, through the hidden nodes (if any) and to the output nodes. There are no cycles or loops in the network."
Because of their occasional need to return to shallow points in a search tree, existing backtracking methods can sometimes erase meaningful progress toward solving a search problem. In this paper, we present a method by which backtrack points can be moved deeper in the search space, thereby avoiding this difficulty. The technique developed is a variant of dependency-directed backtracking that uses only polynomial space while still providing useful control information and retaining the completeness guarantees provided by earlier approaches.
I have always been interested in the subject of Artificial Intelligence. It is because by building AI we are learning valuable lessons about ourselves. After all, we consider us to be intelligent, but are not really sure what that means. AI is an attempt to reverse engineer our mind and to define intelligence by creating an abstracted version of it. Can AI become smarter than us?
