Applied Machine Learning: Algorithms Online Class


In the first installment of the Applied Machine Learning series, instructor Derek Jedamski covered foundational concepts, providing you with a general recipe to follow to attack any machine learning problem in a pragmatic, thorough manner. In this course--the second and final installment in the series--Derek builds on top of that architecture by exploring a variety of algorithms, from logistic regression to gradient boosting, and showing how to set a structure that guides you through picking the best one for the problem at hand. Each algorithm has its pros and cons, making each one the preferred choice for certain types of problems. Understanding what actually drives each algorithm, as well as their benefits and drawbacks, can give you a significant competitive advantage as a data scientist.

USE CASE Industrial ML and Cloud in Manufacturing - AWS re:Invent


One of my favorite projects is also a wonderful use case to analyze if Industrial Cloud is feasible. With my background in the automotive industry and industrial automation, it should be no surprise that this relates to car part manufacturing. After joining AWS re:invent as analyst where I focused on Industrial Machine Learning and Cloud in Manufacturing, I decide to revisit this project and give you an update on this USE CASE. After a very successful pilot project to optimize the process of filling casting machines with liquid aluminum, the team was eager to bring the solution to other facilities. And with that goal in mind, the team also realized that it was necessary to automate the learning process.

This article was published as a part of the Data Science Blogathon. Not only is it free and open source, but it also helps create and organize complex data channels. A data channel platform designed to meet the challenges of long-term tasks and large-scale scripts. Airflow was developed at the request of one of the leading open source data channel platforms. You can define, implement, and control your data integration process with Airflow, an open-source tool.

How to land an ML job: Advice from engineers at Meta, Google Brain, and SAP - KDnuggets


Kaushik is a technical leader at Meta, and has over 10 years of experience building AI-driven products at companies like LinkedIn and Google. Shalvi is an AI scientist at SAP, and has experience as a data scientist, a software engineer, and project manager. Frank is a founding engineer at co:rise and started his career at Coursera, where he was the first engineering hire and built much of the platform's original core infrastructure. The following excerpts from Jake's conversation with Kaushik, Shalvi, and Frank have been edited and condensed for clarity. You can watch the complete recording here. Kaushik, you've been a hiring manager at some big companies. You get a lot of resumes. What are you looking for? What advice do you have for someone who's working on their resume and thinking about how to position themselves? Kaushik: In terms of skills, I'm looking for a practical knowledge of applying ML to build products. That's something I think you can't get from books -- you have to have some hands-on experience. I'm not necessarily looking for someone to have experience with specific tools or techniques, because those things are constantly changing. It's more that I want to know about the approach they took. Why did they use the tools they did, and what did they do when things got tricky or didn't work the first time? Don't get me wrong, I think having a good theoretical foundation is definitely necessary. But I would say you should spend as much time as you can solving real problems. That's how you learn which techniques work best for which use cases, and it will help you get a better understanding of the theoretical side, too. Kaushik: In terms of preparing for interviews, other than brushing up on the fundamentals, my advice would be to brainstorm a couple of problems that are relevant to the company you're interviewing with and do some background research on the common techniques to solve those problems.

Dropout Regularization in Deep Learning - Analytics Vidhya


This article was published as a part of the Data Science Blogathon. When you go out to buy a shirt for yourself, you will not buy something which is very fit for your body because then if you eat pizza or biryani and if you become fat it will not be convenient you will not buy something that is very loose because then it looks like a cloth hanging on a skeleton, you will try to buy a right fit for your body the problem of overfitting and underfitting happening in the machine learning project as well, and there are techniques to tackle this overfitting and under fitting issue and these techniques are called regularization techniques. In the below image, we are applying a dropout on the second hidden layer of a neuron network. In machine learning, "dropout" refers to the practice of disregarding certain nodes in a layer at random during training. A dropout is a regularization approach that prevents overfitting by ensuring that no units are codependent with one another.

Asian gas prices rally on rush by Japan to secure winter supplies

The Japan Times

Japan, one of the world's top buyers of liquefied natural gas, is rushing to secure supplies for winter, exacerbating a global shortage and driving prices of the super-chilled fuel higher. The Asian benchmark spot price has jumped over the past week, although is still almost 70% off the record set in early March, when Russia's invasion of Ukraine upended markets. Several Japanese utilities accelerated discussions with suppliers in the past week to purchase additional shipments for winter, according to traders with knowledge of the matter. This could be due to a conflict with your ad-blocking or security software. Please add and to your list of allowed sites.



If you're a complete beginner to the world of Robotics, This course will teach you all the basic fundamentals you'll need. Introduction to Machine Learning is a front row seat to help beginners unravel the curious mystery behind machine learning. You can use this course to gain knowledge of basic machine learning concepts in preparation for, or alongside, more advanced courses. Machine Learning is the study of algorithms that improve their performance P at some task T with experience E. As Herbert Simon once said, "Learning is any process by which a system improves performance from experience." This course is designed by a Robotics Engineer with over 4 years of experience in creating complex algorithms using C and C whilst comprehending ML and Neural Networks.

The One Practice That Is Separating The AI Successes From The Failures


Anyone who has been following the news on AI in 2022 knows of the high rate of AI project failures. Somewhere between 60-80% of AI projects are failing according to different news sources, analysts, experts, and pundits. However, hidden among all that doom and gloom are the organizations who are succeeding. What are those 20% of organizations doing that are setting themselves apart from the failures, leading their projects to success? Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with the people they hire or the technology or products they use.

NVIDIA Wants to Create a More Realistic Metaverse


A few decades ago, the Internet boomed and it completely altered the world. "What we're seeing is the start of a new era of the Internet. One that is generally being called the Metaverse," says Rev Lebaredian, vice president of Omniverse and Simulation Technology at NVIDIA, in a press briefing. The web, as we know it, is two-dimensional but the power and the potential of 3D technology is expected to drive this new era of the Internet. The'Metaverse' is still in its early phase of development.
