Feature Visualization on Convolutional Neural Networks (Keras) DataStuff

#artificialintelligence

According to Wikipedia, apophenia is "the tendency to mistakenly perceive connections and meaning between unrelated things" . It is also used as "the human propensity to seek patterns in random information". Whether it's a scientist doing research in a lab, or a conspiracy theorist warning us about how "it's all connected", I guess people need to feel like we understand what's going on, even in the face of clearly random information. Deep Neural Networks are usually treated like "black boxes" due to their inscrutability compared to more transparent models, like XGboost or Explainable Boosted Machines. However, there is a way to interpret what each individual filter is doing in a Convolutional Neural Network, and which kinds of images it is learning to detect.


The Actual Difference Between Statistics and Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

Contrary to popular belief, machine learning has been around for several decades. It was initially shunned due to its large computational requirements and the limitations of computing power present at the time. However, machine learning has seen a revival in recent years due to the preponderance of data stemming from the information explosion. So, if machine learning and statistics are synonymous with one another, why are we not seeing every statistics department in every university closing down or transitioning to being a'machine learning' department? Because they are not the same!


Council Post: The Temptations Of Artificial Intelligence Technology And The Price Of Admission

#artificialintelligence

If your work puts you in regular contact with technology vendors, you'll have heard terms such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), natural language processing and computer vision before. You'll have heard that AI/ML is the future, that the boundaries of these technologies are constantly being pushed and broadened, and that AI/ML will play an integral role in shaping this tech-forward era's most successful business models. As a technology leader, I've heard all these claims and more. To say that AI/ML will play an increasingly impactful role in business is no overstatement. According to a recent Forbes article, the machine learning market is poised to more than quadruple in the coming years.


Can AI Replace Writers?

#artificialintelligence

"I would say everyone has read at least once an algorithmically produced article," said Robert Weissgraeber, CTO and Managing Director of AX Semantics. In many cases, readers don't see a difference between human- and bot-authored copy, Weissgraeber told Built In. His company, AX Semantics, is one of several -- including Narrative Science and Automated Insights -- exploring natural language generation, or automated writing. The technology can be used to generate product descriptions, quarterly earnings reports, fantasy football recaps and journalism. The Washington Post, for instance, has developed an AI-enabled bot, Heliograf, that helps generate election and sports coverage.


When not to use machine learning or AI

#artificialintelligence

Imagine that you've just managed to get your hands on a dataset from a clinical trial. Pretend that these datapoints map out the relationship between the treatment day (input "feature") and the correct dosage of some miracle cure in milligrams (output "prediction") that a patient should receive for over the course of 60 days. Now imagine that you're treating a patient and it's day 2. What dose do you suggest we use? I really hope you answered "17mg" since this was definitely not supposed to be a trick question. Now, how would you build software to output the right doses on days 1–5?


Artificial Intelligence Helps Researchers Up-Cycle Waste Carbon With Record Efficiency – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

Researchers from U of T Engineering and Carnegie Mellon University are using electrolyzers like this one to convert waste CO2 into commercially valuable chemicals. Their latest catalyst, designed in part through the use of AI, is the most efficient in its class. Credit: Daria Perevezentsev / University of Toronto Engineering Researchers at University of Toronto Engineering and Carnegie Mellon University are using artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate progress in transforming waste carbon into a commercially valuable product with record efficiency. They leveraged AI to speed up the search for the key material in a new catalyst that converts carbon dioxide (CO2) into ethylene -- a chemical precursor to a wide range of products, from plastics to dish detergent. The resulting electrocatalyst is the most efficient in its class.


Mobileye demos self-driving car that uses cameras to get around

#artificialintelligence

Mobileye, Intel's driverless vehicle R&D division, today published a 40-minute video of one of its cars navigating a 160-mile stretch of Jerusalem streets. The video features top-down footage captured by a drone, as well as an in-cabin cam recording, parallel to an overlay showing the perception system's input and predictions. The perception system was introduced at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show and features 12 cameras, but not radar, lidar, or other sensors. Eight of those cameras have long-range lenses, while four serve as "parking cameras" and all 12 feed into a compute system built atop dual 7-nanometer data-fusing, decision-making Mobileye EyeQ5 chips. Running on the compute system is an algorithm tuned to identify wheels and infer vehicle locations and an algorithm that identifies open, closed, and partially open car doors.

Some AI Advances in the Last Decade May Have Been Illusory - ExtremeTech

#artificialintelligence

But we aren't talking about whether hardware has gotten bigger or better at executing AI algorithms. We're talking about the underlying algorithms themselves and how much complexity is useful in an AI model. I've actually been learning something about this topic directly; my colleague David Cardinal and I have been working on some AI-related projects in connection to the work I've done with the DS9 Upscale Project. Fundamental improvements to algorithms are difficult and many researchers aren't incentivized to fully test if a new method is actually better than an old one -- after all, it looks better if you invent an all-new method of doing something rather than tuning something someone else created.


How To Code Linear Regression From Scratch -- Quick & Easy!

#artificialintelligence

Here, we load the chocolate data into our program using pandas; we also drop two of the columns we won't be using in our calculation: competitorname and winpercent. Our y becomes the first column in the dataset which indicates if our specific sweet is chocolate (1) or not (0). The remaining columns are used as variables/features to predict our y and, thus, become our X. If you're confused about why we're doing with …[:, 0][:,np.newaxis] on line 5, this is to turn y into a column. We simply add a new dimension to convert the horizontal vector into a vertical column!
