The Best AI Still Flunks 8th Grade Science

#artificialintelligence

In 2012, IBM Watson went to medical school. So said The New York Times, announcing that the tech giant's artificially intelligent question-and-answer machine had begun a "stint as a medical student" at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine. This was just a metaphor. Clinicians were helping IBM train Watson for use in medical research. But as metaphors go, it wasn't a very good one.


Teaching Computers to Play Atari Is A Big Step Toward Bringing Robots Into the Real World

Google is teaching machines to play Atari games like Space Invaders, Video Pinball, and Breakout. At DeepMind, a Google subsidiary based in Cambridge, England, researchers have built artificial intelligence software that's so adept at these classic games, it can sometimes beat a human player--and a professional, at that. This may seem like a frivolous, if intriguing, pursuit. If a machine can learn to navigate the digital world of a video game, Google says, it eventually could learn to navigate the real world, too. Today, this AI can play Space Invaders.

Deep Learning & Computer Vision in the Microsoft Azure Cloud

This is the first in a multi-part series by guest blogger Adrian Rosebrock. Adrian writes at PyImageSearch.com about computer vision and deep learning using Python, and he recently finished authoring a new book on deep learning for computer vision and image recognition.


Data Science: Practical Deep Learning in Theano TensorFlow

@machinelearnbot

This course continues where my first course, Deep Learning in Python, left off. You already know how to build an artificial neural network in Python, and you have a plug-and-play script that you can use for TensorFlow. Neural networks are one of the staples of machine learning, and they are always a top contender in Kaggle contests. If you want to improve your skills with neural networks and deep learning, this is the course for you. You already learned about backpropagation (and because of that, this course contains basically NO MATH), but there were a lot of unanswered questions.
