#LondonAI Feb Meetup: Operational AI, Best Coding Practices, and Generative DL

#artificialintelligence

Sometimes these notebooks find their way into production, but their code and structure are often far from ideal. In this session, we cover some best practices around creating and operationalising notebooks. We will talk about structure, code style, refactoring in notebooks, unit testing, reproducibility and more. Nikolay Manchev is a machine learning enthusiast and speaker. His area of expertise is Machine Learning and Data Science, and his research interests are in neural networks with emphasis on biological plausibility. Nikolay was a Senior Data Scientist and Developer Advocate at IBM [masked]) and currently acts as the Principal Data Scientist for EMEA at Domino Data Lab. Talk 3: Generative Deep Learning - The Key To Unlocking Artificial General Intelligence by David Foster Generative modelling is one of the hottest topics in AI. It's now possible to teach a machine to excel at human endeavours such as painting, writing, and composing music. In this talk, we will cover: - A general introduction to Generative Modelling - A walkthrough of one of the most utilised generative deep learning models - the Variational Autoencoder (VAE) - Examples of state-of-the-art output from Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) and Transformer based architectures.


r/MachineLearning - [Project] Visualize Several Perceptron Variants In Browser

#artificialintelligence

I recently made a set of explorable animations that takes an in-depth look at the humble perceptron. Aside from the typically shown linearly separable case, you can also explore convergence with an adjustable margin, as well as the Maxover algorithm and Voted Perceptron variants, which offer good performance, even when the data isn't linearly separable. There was very little information online about the Maxover algorithm, save for the one paragraph on the Wikipedia page. And the paper itself was pretty annoying to read through. I'm pretty glad that I was able to get the messy pseudocode from the paper into something visual you can run in your browser.


r/MachineLearning - [Project] Whats the easiest way to execute Tensorflow/Keras model on FPGA

#artificialintelligence

If you have a good FPGA compiler, don't worry too much about writing efficient mat-mults or convolutions. The downside of having a good FPGA compiler is that it'll optimise the pants off your code -- once lost three days of productivity chasing down why the compiler wired all my output pins to Vcc or Gnd. The day before, I was testing something on the other end of the pipeline, and changed an auto-incrementing register to increment by zero so I could step-through things. I forgot that I hadn't changed it back. The compiler (correctly) deduced that no matter what the input pins were, the output would always be the same.

By joining Ignite Deeptech, you will have the opportunity to explore the possibilities to collaborate and innovate with these startups and potentially impact society and industry on a massive scale. After the matchmaking, you can join THINGS Executive Summit, starting at 14:00.


Experiments in sustainable mobility

#artificialintelligence

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you will be well aware of the trend towards more conscious consumption. In part recently, this is because of the Greta Thunberg effect, the rise Elon Musk's Tesla electric vehicles and more sustainable forms of transportation such as Bird and Uber JUMP. The future of our planet is very much front of mind for Gen-Z, and our cities (especially our large ones) are some of the most polluted places on earth. Just a few days ago, the UK government announced that the petrol and diesel ban will be brought forward 5 years to 2035 rather than 2040. To add to this, the UK government announced that to accelerate the shift to zero emission cars, all company cars will pay no company car tax in 2020–2021.


How to Build Basic Chatbot Without Coding and Deploy to Websites

#artificialintelligence

A chat-bot is, a robotic self learning and talking bot which imitate human conversation through text chats and voice commands (a good example being Siri or Amazon Alexa). Task Handling Chat-bot where you ask something and it execute that task in more easy manner. For example if you ask to book a table at a restaurant, or open website than it will perform the operation on your mobile, laptop and lands you at the page you ask, order the pizza for you A.I. based chat bots (learn over a period of time using Machine Learning techniques) -- dialog flow is an example of that Chat bots are mostly used for businesses will only increase as time goes by. No programming prior experience is required because Google Dialogflow is the platform where all the Machine learning algorithm get trained in back-end. Go to the Dialogflow Console.
