How To Tackle 3 Common Machine Learning Challenges - KDnuggets


The demand for machine learning is only going to increase, thus the need for engineers and data scientists will follow suit. No one wants to talk about the potential roadblocks you'll encounter when developing ML models. As you begin developing your ML models, here are the common challenges you might encounter during your project. We've worked with several companies, including Uber, and the biggest challenge with their machine learning team is building a model that's good enough that will provide business value. We hear that nearly 80% of ML models built, don't make it production because it doesn't provide value.

Ericsson unveils over 200 AI apps for network resilience


In a world where connectivity has become a necessity, automation enabled by these AI apps makes it easier for CSPs to deal with technology challenges while ensuring a prominent level of network quality and stability. The Service Continuity AI app suite is the latest addition to Ericsson's network Support Services portfolio. This suite has been developed in collaboration with CSPs for predictive and preemptive support. It uses AI and machine learning (ML) technologies to identify and address issues before they impact network performance. "Ericsson Service Continuity solution is a reliable and preemptive way to succeed with consistent performance for complex services. We appreciate the great collaborative experience the last two years between Vodafone and Ericsson," says Georgios Anastopoulos, Core & Transport Network Manager, at Vodafone Greece.

Council Post: How Artificial Intelligence Can Impact The Manufacturing Yard


Doug Lawson is the chief executive officer of ThinkIQ. The United States is the third largest manufacturer in the world, trailing only China and the European Union. With hundreds of thousands of manufacturing businesses, the sector accounts for about 11% of America's total gross domestic product and serves a vital role in the global economy. Manufacturing yards serve as the lifeblood of this industry, but these properties pose unique security challenges. Companies want to protect their manufacturing operations, materials and intellectual property while ensuring employee safety and building an efficient operation.

Bipedal robot achieves Guinness World Record in 100 metres


Cassie the robot, invented at the Oregon State University College of Engineering and produced by OSU spinout company Agility Robotics, has established a Guinness World Record for the fastest 100 metres by a bipedal robot. Cassie clocked the historic time of 24.73 seconds at OSU's Whyte Track and Field Center, starting from a standing position and returning to that position after the sprint, with no falls. The 100-metre record builds on earlier achievements by the robot, including traversing five kilometres in 2021 in just over 53 minutes. Cassie, the first bipedal robot to use machine learning to control a running gait on outdoor terrain, completed the 5K on Oregon State's campus untethered and on a single battery charge. Cassie was developed under the direction of Oregon State robotics professor Jonathan Hurst.



Meta AI is committed to developing responsible AI and ensuring the safe use of this state-of-the-art video technology. Our research takes the following steps to reduce the creation of harmful, biased, or misleading content. This technology analyzes millions of pieces of data to learn about the world. As a way to reduce the risk of harmful content being generated, we examine, applied, and iterated on filters to reduce the potential for harmful content to surface in videos. Since Make-A-Video can create content that looks realistic, we add a watermark to all videos we generate.

Meta's new Make-a-Video AI can generate quick movie clips from text prompts


Meta unveiled its Make-a-Scene text-to-image generation AI in July, which like Dall-E and Midjourney, utilizes machine learning algorithms (and massive databases of scraped online artwork) to create fantastical depictions of written prompts. As its name implies, Make-a-Video is, "a new AI system that lets people turn text prompts into brief, high-quality video clips," Zuckerberg wrote in a Meta blog Thursday. Functionally, Video works the same way that Scene does -- relying on a mix of natural language processing and generative neural networks to convert non-visual prompts into images -- it's just pulling content in a different format. "Our intuition is simple: learn what the world looks like and how it is described from paired text-image data, and learn how the world moves from unsupervised video footage," a team of Meta researchers wrote in a research paper published Thursday morning. Doing so enabled the team to reduce the amount of time needed to train the Video model and eliminate the need for paired text-video data, while preserving "the vastness (diversity in aesthetic, fantastical depictions, etc.) of today's image generation models."

GitHub - IDNI/TML: Tau Meta-Language


TML (Tau Meta-Language) is a variant of Datalog. It is intended to serve as a translator between formal languages (and more uses, see under the Philosophy section). The main difference between TML and common Datalog implementations is that TML works under the Partial Fixed-Point (PFP) semantics, unlike common implementations that follow the Well-Founded Semantics (WFS) or stratified Datalog. By that TML (like with WFS) imposes no syntactic restrictions on negation, however unlike WFS or stratified Datalog it is PSPACE complete rather than P complete. TML's implementation heavily relies on BDDs (Binary Decision Diagrams) in its internals. This gives it extraordinary performance in time and space terms, and allowing negation to be feasible even over large universes. In fact negated bodies, as below, do not consume more time or space than positive bodies by any means, thanks to the BDD mechanism. TML follows the PFP semantics in the following sense. On each step, all rules are executed once and only once, causing a set of insertions and deletions of terms.

PhD in Theoretical Neuroscience and Machine Learning


The four-year PhD programme includes in its first year intensive courses that provide a comprehensive introduction to theoretical and systems neuroscience and machine learning (see Teaching). Multidisciplinary training in other areas of neuroscience is also available. We offer a supportive and interdisciplinary environment with close links to the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviours (SWC) and the ELLIS Unit at UCL. Students are strongly encouraged to work and interact closely with peers and faculty at SWC and the ELLIS Unit to benefit from this uniquely multidisciplinary research environment. Projects involving collaboration with researchers at and/or external to UCL are welcome. For details see programme structure.

Getting Started with Pandas Cheatsheet - KDnuggets


Pandas is one of, if not the, most widely-used and relied-upon libraries in the Python ecosystem. Pandas is often the first stop for data scientists for data processing, analysis, and manipulation. Do you have tabular data you want to process? There is basically not way around using Pandas, and nor should you look for one. Pandas is rich in functionality, is incredibly powerful, and provides robust flexibility. Have to prepare tabular data for machine learning?
