Why Google believes machine learning is its future

#artificialintelligence

One of the most interesting demos at this week's Google I/O keynote featured a new version of Google's voice assistant that's due out later this year. A Google employee asked the Google Assistant to bring up her photos and then show her photos with animals. She tapped one and said, "Send it to Justin." The photo was dropped into the messaging app. From there, things got more impressive.


Using AI in NHS diagnosis: apply for funding

#artificialintelligence

X-rays of arms and legs are among the most frequent diagnosis processes used by NHS Scotland, with around 5,000 procedures annually. Although injuries in these areas are often categorised as minor, misdiagnosis and mismanagement can hamper recovery and lead to financial cost. However, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning could help create systems that prevent misdiagnosis. Find out more about the SBRI and how it works. The competition will explore how AI and machine learning can be used to support limb radiographs in the diagnosis of fractures.


Startup Claims Performance Leadership With New AI Edge Chip

#artificialintelligence

Hailo, an AI startup based in Israel, has released its initial chip that the company claims is "the world's top performing deep learning processor," with the Hailo-8 chip claimed to deliver 26 tera-operations pers second (TOPS), while consuming only a few watts of power. If true, that would certainly put it near or at the top of its class in performance for edge applications in areas like self-driving cars, drones, smart appliances, and virtual/augmented reality devices. The challenge in these edgey environments has always been to get AI processors with the requisite performance for these applications but consuming only the small amounts of power available in these settings. In fact, Hailo is positioning its new offering as chip that "enables edge devices to run sophisticated deep learning applications that could previously run only on the cloud." However, doesn't mean Hailo-8 is as powerful as a top-of-the-line inference GPU for the datacenter.

To predict something useful from the datasets, we need to implement machine learning algorithms. Since, there are many types of algorithm like SVM, Bayes, Regression, etc. We will be using four algorithms- Dimensionality Reduction It is a very important algorithm as it is unsupervised i.e. it can implement raw data to structured data.


How to Choose Machine Learning or Deep Learning for Your Business

#artificialintelligence

AI is the future, or so you're hearing. Every day, news of another organization leveraging AI to produce business outcomes that outstrip competition hit your inbox, but your company either hasn't started at all or is mired in the discussion. AI, machine learning, and deep learning are sometimes used interchangeably, but they aren't the same. If your business is going to leverage advances in technology, you need to know the difference and when to choose machine learning over deep learning and vice versa. Short story: deep learning is a subset of machine learning and both fall under the umbrella of AI.


How to Develop a Deep CNN to Classify Satellite Photos of the Amazon Rainforest

#artificialintelligence

The Planet dataset has become a standard computer vision benchmark that involves classifying or tagging the contents satellite photos of Amazon tropical rainforest. The dataset was the basis of a data science competition on the Kaggle website and was effectively solved. Nevertheless, it can be used as the basis for learning and practicing how to develop, evaluate, and use convolutional deep learning neural networks for image classification from scratch. This includes how to develop a robust test harness for estimating the performance of the model, how to explore improvements to the model, and how to save the model and later load it to make predictions on new data. In this tutorial, you will discover how to develop a convolutional neural network to classify satellite photos of the Amazon tropical rainforest. How to Develop a Convolutional Neural Network to Classify Satellite Photos of the Amazon Rainforest Photo by Anna & Michal, some rights reserved. The "Planet: Understanding the Amazon from Space" competition was held on Kaggle in 2017. The competition involved classifying small squares of satellite images taken from space of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil in terms of 17 classes, such as "agriculture", "clear", and "water". Given the name of the competition, the dataset is often referred to simply as the "Planet dataset". The color images were provided in both TIFF and JPEG format with the size 256 256 pixels. A total of 40,779 images were provided in the training dataset and 40,669 images were provided in the test set for which predictions were required. The problem is an example of a multi-label image classification task, where one or more class labels must be predicted for each label. This is different from multi-class classification, where each image is assigned one from among many classes.


Beyond Deepfakes – AI, Security, and Programmatically Generated Everything Emerj

#artificialintelligence

Deepfakes have made their way into the radar of much of the First World. As with many technology phenomena, deepfakes have their origins in pornography – editing (the Reddit page that originally popularized deepfakes was banned in early 2018). In April of this year, I was asked by UNICRI (the crime and justice wing of the UN) to present the risks and opportunities of deepfakes and programmatically generated content at United Nations headquarters for a convening titled: Artificial Intelligence and Robotics: Reshaping the Future of Crime, Terrorism, and Security. Instead of speaking about the topic, we decided it would be better to showcase the technology to the UN, IGO, and law enforcement leaders attending the event. So we took a video of UNICRI Director Ms. Bettina Tucci Bartsiotas, and created a deepfake, altering her words and statements by using a model of her face on another person.

6 Ways Top Influencers Are Implementing AI and Machine Learning to Grow Their Followers

#artificialintelligence

With over 31.25 million Facebook posts per minute, 6000 tweets per second and 95 million Instagram posts every day, it's genuinely commendable how top social media influencers can work their way through big data analytics and present relevant and timely content to their respective industries. Whether they focus on tech, fashion, fitness, business or beauty, influencers are continually learning and improving to stay ahead of their competition. With sufficient exposure to AI and machine learning solutions created to help social media marketing, you can also increase your social media conversion rates. John McCarthy, one of the early pioneers in the field of AI, defined artificial intelligence as "the science of making machines that can perform tasks that are characteristic of human intelligence." These tasks may include understanding language, translating content between languages, recognizing elements in images and speech or making decisions.
