Debugging a Machine Learning model written in TensorFlow and Keras

#artificialintelligence

In this article, you get to look over my shoulder as I go about debugging a TensorFlow model. I did a lot of dumb things, so please don't judge. You can see the final (working) model on GitHub. I'm building a model to predict lightning 30 minutes into the future and plan to present it at the American Meteorological Society. A model trained in this way can be used to predict lightning 30 minutes ahead in real-time given the current infrared and GLM data. I wrote up a convnet model borrowing liberally from the training loop of the ResNet model written for the TPU and adapted the input function (to read my data, not JPEG) and the model (a simple convolutional network, not ResNet).


Fake Third-Party Python Libraries Are Stealing Information

#artificialintelligence

Python removed two fake libraries from Python Package Index (PyPI) after a German developer, Lukas Martini, reported about the packages stealing critical information. Python was released almost three decades ago, but it was only embraced in the last few years due to the increase in artificial intelligence and data science-based third-party libraries. However, these very libraries can become the prime reason for Python's downfall. This is the third time Python org witnessed infiltration and extracting information -- the other three occurred in July 2019, October 2018, and September 2017. Typosquatting – a form of cybersquatting technique that takes advantage typos made by users to hack into information – was used for deceiving and getting access to sensitive data.


Partners to develop AI hardware and software for autonomous vehicles -- Softei.com

Videantis, which provides automotive deep learning, computer vision and video coding solutions, has announced that it will partner with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, Infineon and other leading companies and universities to develop an artificial intelligence (AI) ASIC and software development tools specifically for intelligent autonomous vehicles. The Videantis AI multi-core processor platform and tool flow has been selected for the KI-Flex autonomous driving chip project. Autonomous driving relies on fast and reliable processing and merging of data from several lidar, camera and radar sensors in the vehicle. This data can provide an accurate picture of the traffic conditions and environment to allow the vehicle to make intelligent decisions when driving. The process of intelligently analysing these volumes of sensor data requires high-performance, efficient, and versatile compute solutions.

Microsoft is the market leader when it comes to providing infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) solutions. Microsoft Azure is the project that has not only benefitted the company in terms of ROI but has also changed the business dynamics of organizations around the globe. More and more companies are adopting Azure for their cloud and data products. Microsoft Azure AI was launched in 2018 and has emerged to be a success in the artificial intelligence services market too. Azure AI is a set of AI services built on Microsoft's breakthrough innovation from decades of world-class research in vision, speech, language processing, and custom machine learning.


Audio Sample from SqueezeWave

#artificialintelligence

Automatic speech synthesis is a challenging task that is becoming increasingly important as edge devices begin to interact with users through speech. Typical text-to-speech pipelines include a vocoder, which translates intermediate audio representations into an audio waveform. Most existing vocoders are difficult to parallelize since each generated sample is conditioned on previous samples. WaveGlow is a flow-based feed-forward alternative to these auto-regressive models (Prenger et al., 2019). However, while WaveGlow can be easily parallelized, the model is too expensive for real-time speech synthesis on the edge.
