I recently started using a task automation app on my smartphone to automate many of the settings I had been changing manually. When at home, I connect to my wireless network to avoid monthly data overages on my smart phone plan. I also connect to my Bluetooth earpiece for hands-free talking, turning the volume up for calls and notifications. When I leave the house, I disconnect and disable both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for security purposes. I also switch all volume settings to silent with vibrate.
Reinforcement Learning in Motion introduces you to the exciting world of machine systems that learn from their environments! In this course, he'll break down key concepts like how RL systems learn, how to sense and process environmental data, and how to build and train AI agents. As you learn, you'll master the core algorithms and get to grips with tools like Open AI Gym, numpy, and Matplotlib. Reinforcement systems learn by doing, and so will you in this interactive, hands-on course! You'll build and train a variety of algorithms as you go, each with a specific purpose in mind.
Data is the pathway upon which the future is being built. Data is a language spoken everywhere, and being able to translate and transform data is becoming an increasingly pivotal skill in all areas. Data is used for a myriad of things from predicting stock prices to recognizing that a tumour is malignant. The power of data has grown immensely, and algorithms are now a companies strongest asset. In order to take advantage of this data, we must learn how to harness and understand it.
Language is a system or method of communication as defined by the Oxford Dictionary. Humans acquire skills based on cognition, patterns and connections, while machines learn through programming and algorithms. After years of technological advancement and progress in Artificial Intelligence (AI), language acquisition and understanding is still the number one thing that sets humans apart from machines. An insight into human language acquisition versus machine AI will provide a clear picture of language learning for humans and machines. Advancement of AI is based on understanding different attributes of humans and replicating it on machines.
Researchers at the University of Toronto say they have developed an algorithm that can learn directly from human instructions rather than a set of examples. With the new heuristic training model, humans program the algorithm with instructions that are used to classify training samples. "What we saw was like a teacher instructing a child, and the child learning beyond what the teacher taught her initially." Using the new method, the algorithm outperformed conventional training techniques by 160 percent and outperformed its own training by 9 percent.
