How to Do Hierarchical Clustering in Python ? 5 Easy Steps Only

#artificialintelligence

Hierarchical Clustering uses the distance based approach between the neighbor datapoints for clustering. Each data point is linked to its nearest neighbors. There are two ways you can do Hierarchical clustering Agglomerative that is bottom-up approach clustering and Divisive uses top-down approaches for clustering. In this tutorial, I will use the popular approach Agglomerative way. In order to find the number of subgroups in the dataset, you use dendrogram. It allows you to see linkages, relatedness using the tree graph. You will find many use cases for this type of clustering and some of them are DNA sequencing, Sentiment Analysis, Tracking Virus Diseases e.t.c. Popular Use Cases are Hospital Resource Management, Business Process Management, and Social Network Analysis. Here we are importing dendrogram, linkage, cluster, and cophenet from the scipy.cluster.hierarchy


Artificial intelligence trains Chinese fighter pilots

#artificialintelligence

BEIJING, BM, ($1 6.40 yuan) – The Chinese state media Global Times published a material in which it reveals that the pilots of the People's Liberation Army are pretending to use simulators with artificial intelligence. According to Liu Xuanzun, the process of training with artificial intelligence is two-way – the pilot learns to improve his skills, while artificial intelligence learns from the pilot's actions. There is already evidence that artificial intelligence developed in China is taking a serious advantage over pilots. In a recent "battle" between Chinese pilot Fang Guoyu, artificial intelligence won for the second time, according to the publication. China says the future of their fifth-generation J-20 fighter and next-generation fighters is based on the use of artificial intelligence.


Facebook's NetHack Challenge 2021 is open for entries

#artificialintelligence

NetHack is an open source roguelike game which only supports a single player environment. It includes permadeath and procedure wise level generation, It is known as the hardest video game to ace. NetHack was launched in July 1987, it was relaunched on 8 March 2020. Facebook has launched the NetHack Challenge at the Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems. The NetHack Challenge at Neur IPS 2021 will be the most accessible AI challenge that will pave the way for further research in AI.


Artificial Neural Patches

#artificialintelligence

This article describes what neural patches and patch systems are, their advantage over tradition neural network design, and why we're looking for people to train interesting artificial neural patches for image classification. It goes over the steps to train such patches using a simple Windows tool, how to test them in the wild on mobile devices (iOS and Android) and submit them for publication review. In 2006 researchers used fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) and electrical recordings of individual nerve cells to find regions of the inferior temporal lobe that become active when macaque monkeys observe another monkey's face. They found that some nerve regions are triggered only when a face is identified. And those trigger other regions which show sensitivity to only specific orientations of the face, or to specific feature exaggerations. Such regions of a neural network that are conditionally activated in the presence of certain coarse features, and then extract more finer features, are referred to as Neural Patches.


Ways to Upgrade Your Digital Marketing Efforts in 2021

#artificialintelligence

These days, the task of marketing your business must include a huge digital component as the world increasingly transitions to online from real interactions.

On the road to smart cities: Where smart vehicles stand and where they're going

#artificialintelligence

IMAGE: Researchers explore the past, present, and future of smart vehicles and what their integration with smart cities would take. Central to any technological progress is the enrichment of human life. The internet and wireless connectivity have done that by allowing not only virtually anyone anywhere to connect real time, but by making possible connections between humans and a range of intelligent devices both indoors and outdoors, putting smart cities on the horizon. One key aspect of realizing smart cities is "smart vehicles", the latest development in intelligent transportation systems (ITS), which involve the integration of communication, mapping, positioning, network, and sensor technologies to ensure cooperative, efficient, intelligent, safe, and economical transportation. For decades, research on bringing to the streets smart vehicles that operate successfully as part of smart city infrastructure has focused on improving computing paradigms for vehicular network connectivity.


AI can now convincingly mimic cybersecurity and medical experts

#artificialintelligence

If you use such social media websites as Facebook and Twitter, you may have come across posts flagged with warnings about misinformation. So far, most misinformation – flagged and unflagged – has been aimed at the general public. Imagine the possibility of misinformation – information that is false or misleading – in scientific and technical fields like cybersecurity, public safety and medicine. There is growing concern about misinformation spreading in these critical fields as a result of common biases and practices in publishing scientific literature, even in peer-reviewed research papers. As a graduate student and as facultymembers doing research in cybersecurity, we studied a new avenue of misinformation in the scientific community.


Council Post: Digital Transformation Investment Is A Board Discussion

#artificialintelligence

Mark is the CEO of W3.Digital, a Digital Transformation focused consultancy. There have been a few moments in history where technological advances and market forces combine to change the global economy's functions. These moments bypass incremental changes and create significant leaps that spur new businesses and sector-wide disruption. Railways, electricity power grids, telephony, air travel, early-stage computing, the internet and the advent of the mobile phone -- followed by the now-ubiquitous smartphone -- are examples of such leaps. While each of these moments was messy as they first emerged, each rapidly matured to a state where we cannot imagine life without them.


The latest Beats buds are the new AirPods come early

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

You won't find it written anywhere in the press materials, but the Beats Studio Buds may as well be called the AirPods 3. From their funky new design and minimalist theme to Apple-ready features like voice-activated Siri, these are immediately the obvious choice right now for AirPods fanatics who don't want to spend up for the AirPods Pro. Wisely, though, Apple has crafted these buds to be nearly as useful for either side of the mobile aisle, including native one-touch pairing for Android or iPhone, a simple but useful Android app, and quick access to alternative voice assistants. The result is a pair of buds that easily outdo the aging AirPods, no matter which phone you choose. The beats have a new pill-like design at their exterior for controls as well as easy insertion. The last Beats earbuds, the Powerbeats, were simply a step-down version of the Powerbeats Pro, chaining the clip-ons together for a more affordable workout option.
