Nokia and UTS forge five-year partnership to launch 5G lab


Nokia and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) have announced a five-year partnership to launch a 5G lab. To be built and run at the university's Tech Lab campus in Botany, Sydney, the lab will be used by the pair and their partners to live-test 5G use cases around the campus, including applications for IoT and smart cities. Nokia said the facility would also serve as a research environment to "explore the capabilities of 5G and 6G technologies for industry 4.0 applications such as industrial automation, agriculture and human-robot interactions, as well as'Internet of Things' capabilities for Internet of Energy applications in smart grid, energy storage and management, and wireless power transfer". The facility itself will feature a 5G lab and demonstration area. It will also connect directly into the university's existing anechoic radio frequency test chamber, which Nokia said would allow researchers to test the potential of Nokia's Massive MIMO technology and other antenna technologies. The UTS campus will also receive 5G coverage to enable use case testing in the lab and the field, the company added.

Intro to the Viterbi Algorithm


In the last post on Hidden Markov models (HMM), we never solved the problem of finding the most probable sequence of coins used. If you didn't read the post on HMMs, I would highly encourage you to do so. For those of you who did not, I'll outline the problem. Let's say some guru came up to you and told you to pick a coin from a bag (there are only two coins in the bag) and flip the coin. You'll either observe a head or a tail.

Machine learning picks promising solar cell material


More than 200,000 candidate materials were virtually screened by the system at Osaka University in Japan. The team of researchers then synthesized one of the most promising, and found its properties were consistent with the system's predictions. Machine learning allows computers to make predictions about complex situations, as long as the algorithms are supplied with sufficient example data. This is especially useful for complicated problems in material science such as designing molecules for organic solar cells, the researchers said, as it can depend on a vast array of factors and unknown molecular structures. It could take humans years to sift data to find underlying patterns, and even longer to test all the possible candidate combinations of'donor' polymers and'acceptor' molecules that make up organic solar cells.

The Future Is AI: Catalysing Change In Your Business


Artificial intelligence – AI – was a mere computational theory back in the 1950s when Alan Turing designed the first Turing Test to measure a machine's intelligence. Today, AI inhabits consumer electronics in the form of Siri, Cortana, Alexa and Google Assistant – it lives behind our internet browsers, within the relative confines of wireless networks and circuit boards. We interact with AI all the time – Google's auto-suggest function, customer service bots and YouTube's search algorithm are all examples of AI. In just half a century, AI's role in society has become firmly established. Developments in software programming and IT have facilitated important innovations in AI.

Analyzing open-source ML pipeline models in real time using Amazon SageMaker Debugger


Open-source workflow managers are popular because they make it easy to orchestrate machine learning (ML) jobs for productions. Taking models into productions following a GitOps pattern is best managed by a container-friendly workflow manager, also known as MLOps. Kubeflow Pipelines (KFP) is one of the Kubernetes-based workflow managers used today. However, it doesn't provide all the functionality you need for a best-in-class data science and ML engineer experience. A common issue when developing ML models is having access to the tensor-level metadata of how the job is performing.

'Deepfake' Tom Cruise takes over TikTok with some 11 million views but raises alarms with experts

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Tom Cruise has gone viral on the popular video-sharing app TikTok, but the clips featuring the'Mission Impossible' star are deepfakes that experts are calling the'most alarmingly lifelike examples' of the technology. An account appeared on the app last week, dubbed'deeptomcruise,' which shows a number of videos depicting Cruise doing a magic trick, playing golf and reminiscing about the time he met the former President of the Soviet Union. The series of clips have been seen more than 11 million times on TikTok as of Tuesday, with many millions more on other social media platforms. Although the clips are for entertainment, experts warn that such content'should worry us'. 'Seeing is no longer believing' rhetoric undermines real video.' An account appeared on the app last week, dubbed'deeptomcruise,' which shows a number of videos that have been viewed more than 11 million times.

Electronic trading surges with traders eyeing the impact of machine learning - CityAM


Professional traders are anticipating artificial intelligence and machine learning to be the most influential technology over the next three years. JP Morgan's flagship survey reveals more than half of professional and institutional traders anticipate machine learning to lead technology. Currently a third of client traders predict mobile trading applications to be the most influential this year. Certainly the Reddit Gamestop rally powered by low cost trading platform is already testament to just how quickly the environment has changed.

Sentiment Analysis (Opinion Mining) with Python -- NLP Tutorial


Check out our editorial recommendations on the best machine learning books. A "sentiment" is a generally binary opposition in opinions and expresses the feelings in the form of emotions, attitudes, opinions, and so on. It can express many opinions. By using machine learning methods and natural language processing, we can extract the personal information of a document and attempt to classify it according to its polarity, such as positive, neutral, or negative, making sentiment analysis instrumental in determining the overall opinion of a defined objective, for instance, a selling item or predicting stock markets for a given company. Sentiment analysis is challenging and far from being solved since most languages are highly complex (objectivity, subjectivity, negation, vocabulary, grammar, and others).

This Technology Brings Old Photos Back to Life by Turning Them Into Videos


Technology continues to surprise us more and more every day. MyHeritage developed a tool that gives movement to old photos by turning them into video. What is unusual about the platform is that it is dedicated to images of deceased people, thus giving them "life" again. Even if a picture is worth a thousand words, a video can bring back memories or create new ones. With artificial intelligence (AI) Deep Nostalgia creates a video of several seconds simulating the movements that the person in the photo may have made before being taken.
