State of the Art Survey of Deep Learning and Machine Learning Models for Smart Cities and Urban Sustainability

#artificialintelligence

Deep learning (DL) and machine learning (ML) methods have recently contributed to the advancement of models in the various aspects of prediction, planning, and uncertainty analysis of smart cities and urban development. This paper presents the state of the art of DL and ML methods used in this realm. Through a novel taxonomy, the advances in model development and new application domains in urban sustainability and smart cities are presented. Findings reveal that five DL and ML methods have been most applied to address the different aspects of smart cities. These are artificial neural networks; support vector machines; decision trees; ensembles, Bayesians, hybrids, and neuro-fuzzy; and deep learning.


Moving from AI awareness to meaningful implementation

#artificialintelligence

While most executives at financial institutions agree that artificial intelligence (AI) is important to their organization's success, few have fully implemented AI projects. In a recent Cognizant survey of 230 financial services executives, three-quarters said AI is extremely or very important to the success of their organizations. However, only 61% of those were aware of an AI project at their company. Even more telling, only 29% were aware of a project that had been fully implemented. Clearly, AI is quickly becoming a competitive requirement, creating the risk that those who are not implementing or updating AI capabilities will fall behind.


Top 10 Data Science Project Ideas for 2020

#artificialintelligence

As an aspiring data scientist, the best way for you to increase your skill level is by practicing. And what better way is there for practicing your technical skills than making projects. Personal projects are a really important part of your career's growth. They will take you one step closer to your data science dream. Projects will boost your knowledge, skills, and confidence.


'It's a war between technology and a donkey' – how AI is shaking up Hollywood

#artificialintelligence

If Sunspring is anything to go by, artificial intelligence in film-making has some way to go. This short film, made as an entry to Sci-Fi London's 48-hour film-making competition in 2016, was written entirely by an AI. The director, Oscar Sharp, fed a few hundred sci-fi screenplays into a long short-term memory recurrent neural network (the type of software behind predictive text in a smartphone), then told it to write its own. The result was almost, but not quite, incoherent nonsense, riddled with cryptic nonsequiturs, bizarre turns of phrase and unfathomable stage directions such as "he is standing in the stars and sitting on the floor". All of which Sharp and his actors filmed with sincere commitment.


Neural Networks takes center stage in AI revolution

#artificialintelligence

Given the current buzz around the whole industry, you could be forgiven for thinking that the whole of artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning sprang magically from out of the oceans of research five years ago, but for those of us who've been providing AI solutions to enterprises for several decades we can but watch recent interest and smile knowingly. However, the appearance of Neural Networks (NN) on the center stage over the same timescale has been little short of phenomenal. Ever since Horace Barlow's pioneering experiments of the 1950s, AI researchers have had a fondness for Neural Networks in the ambitious hope that one day they'd recreate the power of the human brain. But even when I helped create the first version of IDOL Server 20 years ago, Neural Networks were not yet fit-for-purpose, a bit player on the AI scene, slow to train and prone to over-fitting. Then came the Long Short-term Memory improvements in speech-to-text of around ten years ago that started the revolution that has resulted in Neural Networks' powering the wonderfully-spooky sounding field of Deep Learning and finally achieving the recognition that its persistent academic fan base always imagined it would one day receive.


How to Annotate Images for Deep Learning?

#artificialintelligence

Deep learning is a subset of machine learning (ML) which is a sub discipline of artificial intelligence (AI). Deep learning is used to carry out more crucial tasks without being explicitly programmed to do so. Actually, in deep learning neural networks are used to analyze data and extract relevant patterns of information from them. And the neural networks are divided into three different mechanisms an input layer, a hidden layer, and an output layer. And when many small networks are joined together into layers, a deep neural network is created.


GitHub Repo Raider and the Automation of Machine Learning - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

GitHub is a clearinghouse for all sorts of open source projects, including those for machine learning, automated and otherwise. More specifically, automated machine learning is the use of automated techniques, be they learned methods or simple heuristics, used for algorithm selection, hyperparameter tuning, architecture design, or any other conceivable portion of a machine learning implementation. Switching gears, Indiana Jones is one of the greatest characters to ever grace the silver screen. Raiders of the Lost Ark, the first movie in which the character was featured, is a personal favorite, film adored by millions. The rest of the (current) quadrilogy movies run alternately hot and cold, but even the poorest quality Indiana Jones is better than 95% of available cinema.

What will artificial intelligence bring in 2020?

#artificialintelligence

As an expert, I'm often asked: what will this year bring? I don't have a glass ball to look into the future, or an artificial intelligence (AI)-based system for these kinds of predictions, but there are some interesting trends I certainly want to share. I will not discuss the growth figures of AI use cases, or whether those not using AI will limp along behind, or whether the "AI bubble" will burst and a new AI winter will come. Much progress has been made, but not enough to deflect the next hurdle: and that is how to gain knowledge about your business domain with the help of AI. So, what will AI bring us in the near future?
