The Future Of AI: Careers In Machine Learning - AI Summary

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is a branch of data science which involves using "data science programs that can adapt based on experience," said Ben Tasker, technical program facilitator of data science and data analytics at Southern New Hampshire University. As the fields of science and engineering continue to advance, artificial intelligence is becoming "a lot less artificial and a lot more intelligent," Tasker said. Because so much about the field of data science in general and AI in particular is new, there are many opportunities to "make your own niche, especially now that many companies have started to invest in the idea of artificial intelligence," Tasker said. AI Engineer: In this role, one may be involved in the different facets of designing, developing and building artificial intelligence models using machine learning algorithms. Big Data Engineer: Overlapping with the role of a data scientist, the person in this role analyzes a company's volume of data known as "big data," and then uses the analyses to mine useful information in support of the company and its business model.


Results of Deep Funding -- Round 1

#artificialintelligence

This marks a new phase in the SingularityNET ecosystem, where we will foster the growth of the platform by supporting projects with AGIX tokens, knowledge and experience. We are very happy to present the projects that have been selected by our engaged community to be awarded with their requested amounts. While the portal was open, a total of 47 proposals were submitted for the $1million worth of AGIX token treasury funds, which made this round a fair success! After reviewing the proposals on their formal compliance to the Deep Funding rules, only 28 made it to the voting round. All of these 28 had more than the required 1% of cast votes, but only a minority of 12 proposals received an average grade of 6,5 or higher.


Parallel computing in Python using Dask

#artificialintelligence

Parallel computing is an architecture in which several processors execute or process an application or computation simultaneously. Parallel computing helps in performing extensive calculations by dividing the workload between more than one processor, all of which work through the calculation at the same time. The primary goal of parallel computing is to increase available computation power for faster application processing and problem solving. In sequential computing, all the instructions run one after another without overlapping, whereas in parallel computing instructions run in parallel to complete the given task faster. Dask is a free and open-source library used to achieve parallel computing in Python. It works well with all the popular Python libraries like Pandas, Numpy, scikit-learns, etc.


Artificial Intelligence Here's How Your Business Can Be Prepare

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence is poised to have a massive impact on how people and businesses operate. It will transform industries from healthcare to transportation and retail. But it won't just affect things from your favorite apps to your day-to-day life. It's going to have a major impact on your company too. Think about the ways AI could help your company.


AI in the cloud pays dividends for Liberty Mutual

#artificialintelligence

Liberty Mutual is one of the most experienced and advanced cloud adopters in the nation. And that is in no small part thanks to the vision of James McGlennon, who in his role as CIO of Liberty Mutual for past 17 years has led the charge to the cloud, analytics, and AI with a budget north of $2 billion. Eight years ago, McGlennon hosted an off-site think tank with his staff and came up with a "technology manifesto document" that defined in those early days the importance of exploiting cloud-based services, becoming more agile, and instituting cultural changes to drive the company's digital transformation. Today, Liberty Mutual, which has 45,000 employees across 29 countries, has a robust hybrid cloud infrastructure built primarily on Amazon Web Services but with specific uses of Microsoft Azure and, lesser so, Google Cloud Platform. Liberty Mutual's cloud infrastructure runs an array of business applications and analytics dashboards that yield real-time insights and predictions, as well as machine learning models that streamline claims processing.


How GitHub Copilot will Change Developers Life

#artificialintelligence

GitHub Copilot will open the door to the many changes in the industry, but the degree to which those changes will be favorable or detrimental is still unknown. Recently, the performance of the Copilot was benchmarked against a set of Python functions, which has a good test coverage in the open-source repos. The team cleared the function bodies and kept only the function names and docstrings. Copilot could fill them in correctly 43% of the time in the first attempt, and the accuracy increased to 57% after ten attempts. Similar to most AI tools, Copilot also gets smarter over time based on the data it collects from users.


Backpropagation! Propagating the info back to you!

#artificialintelligence

To unlock the mystical blackbox of backpropagation, for new machine learning enthusiasts, I've created this short analogy. To use an everyday analogy, we'll consider cooking your favorite food!! To cook your favorite food, you'll need ingredients. To get/buy your ingredients, you'll need money. The amount of money you're willing to spend (budget) influences how much you can spend on your ingredients, and the amount of ingredients you have would determine how many portions of your favorite food that you can prepare.


Gato, the latest from Deepmind. Towards true AI?

#artificialintelligence

The deep learning field is progressing rapidly, and the latest work from Deepmind is a good example of this. Their Gato model is able to learn to play Atari games, generate realistic text, process images, control robotic arms, and more, all with the same neural network. Inspired by large-scale language models, Deepmind applied a similar approach but extended beyond the realm of text outputs. This new AGI (after Artificial General Intelligence) works as a multi-modal, multi-task, multi-embodiment network, which means that the same network (i.e. a single architecture with a single set of weights) can perform all tasks, despite involving inherently different kinds of inputs and outputs. While Deepmind's preprint presenting Gato is not very detailed, it is clear enough in that it is strongly rooted in transformers as used for natural language processing and text generation.


Can robots have a sense of humor?

#artificialintelligence

Cracking jokes is not the same as digging them. I've been working around AI for 30 years and haven't yet seen an AI system able to explain what is funny about a given joke. I'm not talking about pre-programmed answers, like the ones you can find in Siri: if you ask "What's the meaning of life," you'll get a funny answer, like "A good life is about wearing clean and dry clothes," as this answer was put there by a human programmer; the system doesn't have a clue about why this could possibly be funny. Notice that the three questions are ordered in increasing difficulty levels, which perhaps is counterintuitive to many of us because creating something is supposedly more difficult than understanding something. But in this case, the opposite holds true, as we'll explain.


Artificial Intelligence Can Now Accurately Describe Your Poop

#artificialintelligence

Pimentel, who told Motherboard he had no financial stake in the app, said artificial intelligence takes the guesswork out of the diagnostic process, which generally relies on potentially inaccurate patient self-reporting. The study found that subjects appeared reluctant to use the full BSS, tending to gravitate toward the diarrhea (low) end of the scale. Investigators compared patients' self-reported scores and AI-generated scores with "gold standards" generated by two expert gastroenterologists. Scores calculated by AI aligned more closely with the expert scores, compared with patients' self-reported scores.
