Tackle Math for Machine Learning (The Easy Way) - Minds Mastering Machines [M³] London

#artificialintelligence

If you want to fully grasp machine learning,and avoid mistakes, you'll need to be familiar with math at some level. You'll find it in papers and textbooks as well as libraries/frameworks. With a targeted approach, and the right frame of mind, you can tackle the math necessary for machine learning. If you didn't get along with math in high school then don't worry, this talk will be down-to-earth and approachable, and has been designed with you in mind. This talk will cover practical mathematical concepts featured in machine learning, presented in a very accessible, visual manner.


When Was Zero Invented? Ancient Text Reveals Mathematical Concept's Origins

International Business Times

Scientists have found the earliest recorded usage of a zero, marking a historical turning point in mathematics and society. The Bodleian Libraries at Oxford University announced the discovery from an ancient Indian mathematical document called the Bakhshali manuscript, which was discovered in the late 1800s in what is now Pakistan but has recently been reanalyzed. The text, which is littered with zeroes, has been dated to between 200 and 400 BCE, placing it about 500 years earlier than the next known use of the mathematical symbol. "This isn't some sort of theoretical text, it seems to be a practical document that is being used by merchants to do calculations," mathematics professor Marcus du Sautoy said in a video from Oxford. Those calculations, which include dots that are supposed to be zeroes, were made on dozens of birch bark leaves.


What is Rational Psychology?

AI Magazine

Thcsc are the problems of investigating theories and techniques of natural and artificial psychologies by means of t,he most fit mathematical concepts. Rational psychology should not, be confused with logic-based presentations of artificial intelligence. While investigations based on mathematical logic are relatively familiar and certainly useful, using only that portion of mathematics to characterize psychologies presupposes that psychological questions are fundamentally logical. That presupposition is not, ncccssary for the development of an exact science of mind. Rational Psychology Hat,ional psychology is a part of mathematics, the conceptual investigation of psychology.


Trump Solves Famous Mathematical Conjecture

In an email sent to Putin and intercepted by hackers, Donald Trump mentions the result below. However, Trump wrote that he did not have enough space in his message to add the proof, a bit like Fermat when he wrote about his big theorem proved 300 years later. A teacher in New Hope Middle School (Pennsylvania) asked her students to verify if the statement was correct, and found it to be true. In his email, Trump wrote that he planned to leverage this result to find new prime numbers. It was conjectured in 1764 that the polynomial below can not be factored unless one uses complex numbers.


Introduction to Mathematical Thinking Coursera

#artificialintelligence

About this course: Learn how to think the way mathematicians do – a powerful cognitive process developed over thousands of years. Mathematical thinking is not the same as doing mathematics – at least not as mathematics is typically presented in our school system. School math typically focuses on learning procedures to solve highly stereotyped problems. Professional mathematicians think a certain way to solve real problems, problems that can arise from the everyday world, or from science, or from within mathematics itself. The key to success in school math is to learn to think inside-the-box.
