Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro review – what it is to be human

#artificialintelligence

Klara and the Sun asks readers to love a robot and, the funny thing is, we do. This is a novel not just about a machine but narrated by a machine, though the word is not used about her until late in the book when it is wielded by a stranger as an insult. People distrust and then start to like her: "Are you alright, Klara?" Apart from the occasional lapse into bullying or indifference, humans are solicitous of Klara's feelings – if that is what they are. Klara is built to observe and understand humans, and these actions are so close to empathy they may amount to the same thing. "I believe I have many feelings," she says.


A deep learning technique to solve Rubik's cube and other problems step-by-step

#artificialintelligence

Colin G. Johnson, an associate professor at the University of Nottingham, recently developed a deep-learning technique that can learn a so-called "fitness function" from a set of sample solutions to a problem. This technique, presented in a paper published in Wiley's Expert Systems journal, was initially trained to solve the Rubik's cube, the popular 3-D combination puzzle invented by Hungarian sculptor Ernő Rubik. "The aim of our paper was to use machine learning to learn to solve the Rubik's cube," Colin G. Johnson, one of the researchers who carried out the study, told TechXplore. "Rubik's cube is a very complex puzzle, but any of the vast number of combinations is at most 20 steps from a solution. So the approach we take here is to try and solve the problem by learning to do each of those steps individually."


15 new deep learning courses for top instructors from udemy

#artificialintelligence

This course will guide you through how to use Google's latest TensorFlow 2 framework to create artificial neural networks for deep learning! This course aims to give you an easy to understand guide to the complexities of Google's TensorFlow 2 framework in a way that is easy to understand. We'll focus on understanding the latest updates to TensorFlow and leveraging the Keras API (TensorFlow 2.0's official API) to quickly and easily build models. In this course we will build models to forecast future price homes, classify medical images, predict future sales data, generate complete new text artificially and much more! This course is designed to balance theory and practical implementation, with complete jupyter notebook guides of code and easy to reference slides and notes.


How to Apply Machine Learning to Business Problems « Machine Learning Times

#artificialintelligence

It's easy to see the massive rise in popularity for venture investment, conferences, and business-related queries for "machine learning" since 2012 – but most technology executives often have trouble identifying where their business might actually apply machine learning (ML) to business problems. With new AI buzzwords being created weekly, it can seem difficult to get ahold of what applications are viable, and which are hype, hyperbole or hoax. At Emerj, our market research focuses on cutting through the AI hype, and helping innovation and strategy leaders make a better business case for AI. This includes both our AI Opportunity Landscape research with enterprise clients, and our Emerj Plus best-practices guides for consultants and vendors. In this article, we'll break down categories of business problems that are commonly handled by ML, and we'll also provide actionable advice to begin a ML initiative with the right approach and perspective (even it's the first such project you've undertaken at your company).


I Interviewed One of The World's Most Advanced AI Systems: GPT3

#artificialintelligence

Create, Schedule, Optimize and Publish All Your Content From One Dashboard. Create Content That Ranks, At Scale. I have been fascinated by computers in general since I was a kid. I can remember the computer lab when I was maybe 5 or 6 years old and we were being taught using a computer through the DOS prompt. I have seen computers and technology progress exponentially through time.


Machine Learning May Reduce Mental Health Misdiagnosis

#artificialintelligence

Depressive episodes in bipolar disorder can be indistinguishable from those in major depressive disorder, leading to misdiagnosis and poor subsequent outcomes. Approximately 40% of patients with bipolar disorder are initially diagnosed with major depressive disorder; average delay in bipolar diagnosis ranges from 5.7 to 7.5 years. In conjunction with data from self-reports and blood biomarker data, a machine learning algorithm called Extreme Gradient Boosting (XGBoost) was able to distinguish between bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder. The predictive capabilities of artificial intelligence (AI) can assist researchers and clinicians in disciplines characterized by complexity and nuance. AI machine learning is increasingly being used in life sciences, biotechnology, and mental health.


MS Machine Learning-AI vs MS Data Science vs MS Analytics

#artificialintelligence

Both Data Science and machine learning are very inter-related. It's hard to distinguish them at least at the Masters level. So, don't bother to differentiate them. Between data science and data analytics, it all depends on your existing skills and learning objectives. The course pattern, structure, syllabus everything is quite similar and is interrelated.


PyTorch Tabular – A Framework for Deep Learning for Tabular Data

#artificialintelligence

It is common knowledge that Gradient Boosting models, more often than not, kick the asses of every other machine learning models when it comes to Tabular Data. I have written extensively about Gradient Boosting, the theory behind and covered the different implementations like XGBoost, LightGBM, CatBoost, NGBoost etc. in detail. The unreasonable effectiveness of Deep Learning that was displayed in many other modalities – like text and image- haven not been demonstrated in tabular data. But lately, the deep learning revolution have shifted a little bit of focus to the tabular world and as a result, we are seeing new architectures and models which was designed specifically for tabular data modality. And many of them are coming up as an equivalent or even slightly better than well-tuned Gradient Boosting models.


Maxar Technologies BrandVoice: Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning To Solve Complex Challenges

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) have revolutionized industries and our daily lives; they help video-streaming services predict which movies we'd like to watch, allow credit card companies to identify fraudulent transactions and enable navigation apps to find the fastest routes to our destinations. For geospatial applications, AI and ML can identify objects and patterns automatically and derive meaningful insights from satellite imagery in hours--a task that previously would have required teams of analysts and months of effort. With these tools, we can gain insights about any spot on the globe, identify where things are changing most quickly and find patterns that have never before been visible in data. In machine learning, a form of AI, computer programs improve through experience, accessing data and using it to learn for themselves. Algorithms with richer data will become more effective in nature.


Can Auditing Eliminate Bias from Algorithms? – The Markup

#artificialintelligence

For more than a decade, journalists and researchers have been writing about the dangers of relying on algorithms to make weighty decisions: who gets locked up, who gets a job, who gets a loan--even who has priority for COVID-19 vaccines. Rather than remove bias, one algorithm after another has codified and perpetuated it, as companies have simultaneously continued to more or less shield their algorithms from public scrutiny. The big question ever since: How do we solve this problem? Lawmakers and researchers have advocated for algorithmic audits, which would dissect and stress-test algorithms to see how they work and whether they're performing their stated goals or producing biased outcomes. And there is a growing field of private auditing firms that purport to do just that.
