Weight Agnostic Neural Networks

#artificialintelligence

In this work we introduced a method to search for simple neural network architectures with strong inductive biases for performing a given task. Since the networks are optimized to perform well using a single weight parameter over a range of values, this single parameter can easily be tuned to increase performance. Individual weight values can then be further tuned as offsets from the best shared weight. The ability to quickly fine-tune weights is useful in few-shot learning and may find uses in continual lifelong learning where agents continually acquire, fine-tune, and transfer skills throughout their lifespan . Early works connected the evolution of weight tolerant networks to the Baldwin effect .


Bayesian Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

As a data scientist, I am curious about knowing different analytical processes from a probabilistic point of view. There are two most popular ways of looking into any event, namely Bayesian and Frequentist . When Frequentist researchers look at any event from frequency of occurrence, Bayesian researchers focus more on probability of events happening.

This is a post related to my recent talk at PyLadies Vancouver. The talk is about how to use the EmoPy toolkit in Linux Ubuntu 16.04 with OpenCV Python to perform Emotion detection in images and videos. You can find my slides here. EmoPy is an open-source emotion detection toolkit developed by Thoughtworks and currently supports OS X. However, it has not been tested on a Linux OS.


Artificial Intelligence Is Coming for Our Faces

#artificialintelligence

Every stranger's face hides a secret, but the smiles in this crowd conceal a big one: These people do not exist. They were generated by machine learning algorithms, for the purposes of probing whether AI-made faces can pass as real. University of Washington professors Jevin West and Carl Bergstrom generated thousands of virtual visages to create Which Face Is Real?, an online game that pairs each counterfeit with a photo of a real person and challenges players to pick out the true human. Nearly 6 million rounds have been played by half a million people. These are some of the faces that players found most difficult to identify as the cheery replicants they are.



Machine Learning: Lessons Learned from the Enterprise

#artificialintelligence

This article summarizes the lessons learned after two years of our team engaging with dozens of enterprise clients from different industries including manufacturing, financial services, retail, entertainment, and healthcare, among others. What are the most common ML problems faced by the enterprise? What is beyond training an ML model? How to address data preparation? How to scale to large datasets?


Artificial Intelligence: New Threats to International Psychological Security

#artificialintelligence

The scholars focused on combating the malicious use of AI by terrorists. Their findings were published in the journal Russia in Global Affairs. Much has been written on the threats that artificial intelligence (AI) can pose to humanity. Today, this topic is among the most discussed issues in scientific and technical development. Despite the fact that so-called Strong AI, characterised by independent systems thinking and possibly self-awareness and will power, is still far from reality, various upgraded versions of Narrow AI are now completing specific tasks that seemed impossible just a decade ago.


Open Datasets for Machine Learning Lionbridge AI

#artificialintelligence

Datasets are an integral part of machine learning. Without high quality training datasets, machine learning algorithms would have no way of knowing how to conduct sentiment analysis, categorize products or understand foreign languages. This spreadsheet contains the ultimate list of open datasets for machine learning. Organized by industry and use case, this database contains a diverse range of 300 datasets to train machine learning models.


Choosing Augmentation Over Automation in AI Transforming Data with Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

On the AI journey, automation is often the default, depopulated destination. We must consciously choose to empower humans via augmentation. "Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed. Donald Trump's tweet, a hasty response to the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash on March 10, offers a typically visceral response to computerization when it is perceived to cause a catastrophe. Unfortunately, it ignores the subtle issues surrounding the adoption of technology to both support and replace human involvement in decision making. Early investigations into the cause of this and an earlier crash point to complex, computerized flight-control software -- the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) -- introduced on the Boeing 737 MAX 8 to correct the angle of attack of the aircraft if it becomes too steep under certain flying conditions. A single source -- faulty sensor data -- has been blamed for the crashes. However, the algorithm also considers ...
