If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
The AI Revolution is a fusion of advances in AI, #robotics, #IoT, 3D printing, geneticengineering, #quantumcomputing, and other emergingtech, all as an Integrated Human-Machine Intelligence & Learning - HMIL, Global Cyber-Human Intelligence, or simply Superintelligence, which engineering implies melding most emerging technologies. HMIL AI ML DL NLU 6G Bio-, Nano-, Cognitive engineering Robotics SC, QC the Internet of Everything MME, BCE Human Minds Encyclopedic Intelligence Real I Global [Human Mind - Machine] Intelligence Global Supermind Superintelligence The Human-AI Symbiosis: "the living together of unlike organisms". The man-AI symbiosis is any type of a close and long-term social-cybernetic interaction between two different species, where each termed a symbiont. There are five main symbiotic relationships: mutualism, commensalism, predation, parasitism, and competition. It is up to humans how to design future machine intelligence, as mutually beneficial or mutually harmful or just competitive.
On February 14, a researcher who was frustrated with reproducing the results of a machine learning research paper opened up a Reddit account under the username ContributionSecure14 and posted the r/MachineLearning subreddit: "I just spent a week implementing a paper as a baseline and failed to reproduce the results. I realized today after googling for a bit that a few others were also unable to reproduce the results. Is there a list of such papers? It will save people a lot of time and effort." The post struck a nerve with other users on r/MachineLearning, which is the largest Reddit community for machine learning.
Machine Learning is increasingly relevant to information security. The general idea is that it can offer better threat analysis to businesses while improving their entire IT infrastructure security. ML can also help automate menial tasks that were often given to security teams with minimal skill to handle. Data security is at severe risk in such an environment. But machine learning continues to grow in impact and adoption in cybersecurity solutions.
SHENZHEN – Chinese drone giant DJI Technology Co. built up such a successful U.S. business over the past decade that it almost drove all competitors out of the market. Yet its North American operations have been hit by internal disturbances in recent weeks and months, with a raft of staff cuts and departures, according to interviews with more than two dozen current and former employees. The loss of key managers, including some who have joined rivals, has compounded problems caused by U.S. government restrictions on Chinese companies, and raised the once-remote prospect of DJI's dominance being eroded, said four of the people, including two senior executives who were at the company until late 2020. About a third of DJI's 200-strong team in the region was laid off or resigned last year, from offices in Palo Alto, Burbank and New York, according to three former and one current employee. In February this year, DJI's head of U.S. R&D left and the company laid off the remaining R&D staff, numbering roughly 10 people, at its flagship U.S. research center in California's Palo Alto, four people said.
Researchers from the University of Missouri and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with image processing and cybersecurity expertise have been awarded nearly $1.2 million from the National Science Foundation to find out. They're designing an AI program they believe will need only a small number of deepfake examples to start to build its knowledge base. As it learns, the program will be able to spot new deepfake techniques, making more accurate detections and preventing mistakes in identifying content. Relying on a small number of examples overcomes the current challenges of algorithms that typically need a vast number of labeled samples to learn from. By leveraging accumulated knowledge, the deepfake detector will also learn to prevent camouflaged or obscured visual content from being classified as genuine content.
Historically, cybersecurity has been a field dominated by resource-intensive efforts. Monitoring, threat hunting, incident response, and other duties are often manual and time-intensive, which can delay remediation activities, increase exposure, and heighten vulnerability to cyber adversaries. Over the past few years, artificial intelligence solutions have rapidly matured to the point where they can bring substantial benefits to cyber defensive operations across a broad range of organizations and missions. By automating key elements of labor-heavy core functions, AI can transform cyber workflows into streamlined, autonomous, continuous processes that speed remediation and maximize protection.
For example, this spring, the 36th America's Cup is scheduled to showcase the space-age, super-fast AC75 mono-hull yacht. In trials, digital twin technology was used by one team to emulate the performance of sailors in a new AC75 boat; a feat that radically accelerated prototype development compared with previous testing methods. Now deployed in areas such as city planning, healthcare and automotive design, digital twinning also holds immense potential for the manufacturing sector – helping in its ongoing quest for enhanced safety, improved productivity and greater efficiency. Given its newfound status, the term'digital twins' has become somewhat of a catch-all for various associated strains of technical innovation. Augmented reality, enhanced user interfaces and 3D-modelling – to name a few.
For a more in-depth explanation of Forward Propagation and Backpropagation in neural networks, please refer to my other article What is Deep Learning and How does it work? For a given input vector x the neural network predicts an output, which is generally called a prediction vector y. We must compute a dot-product between the input vector x and the weight matrix W1 that connects the first layers with the second. After that, we apply a non-linear activation function to the result of the dot-product. Depending on the task we want the network to do, this prediction vector represents different things.
While taking the first step into the field of machine learning, it is so easy to get overwhelmed by all kinds of complex algorithms and ugly symbols. Therefore, hopefully, this article can lower the entry barrier by providing a beginner-friendly guide. Allow you to get a sense of achievement by building your own ML model using BigQuery and SQL. That's right, we can use SQL to implement machine learning. In a nutshell, BigQuery project contains datasets and a dataset contains tables and models.
