AI research has a big problem, and these powerhouse professors are calling it out

#artificialintelligence

Dozens of AI experts signed an article in Nature saying that unlike research in other scientific fields, top AI studies are often not transparent and reproducible, and they're frequently published without details such as full code, models, and methodology. Those findings are then picked up in mainstream media headlines worldwide. They point to a study also published in Nature this past January, where Google Health reported an AI system that could screen for breast cancer faster and better than radiologists. The study apparently lacked details like methodology and code. "On paper and in theory, the study is beautiful. But if we can't learn from it, then it has little to no scientific value," says lead author Benjamin Haibe-Kains, senior scientist at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.


Can Animals Help Us Build Better AI?

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning has been making plenty of headlines in the past few years. Rightfully so, even though headlines tend to oversell. Advances in computing power, algorithmic complexity, data handling capacities, and models of learning mean that machine learning/AI is increasingly being used in many fields. In previous posts, I have written about machine learning/AI in general science and art, but also more specifically in (warning, link fest) historical research, genetic enhancement, mental health, aging research (including the development of'aging clocks'), video game ecology, Hollywood, astrobiology, epidemiology, stock markets, and the job market. Plenty of AI to go around, it seems.


3 Ways That AI Can Help Users Avoid Weak Passwords

#artificialintelligence

The scientists from Stevens will be giving a talk on the AI program's latest password-cracking developments at the 42nd IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy in 2021. "Since 2017, we have improved PassGAN, and now it uses a form of reinforcement learning very similar to how AlphaZero has learned how to play chess," says Giuseppe Ateniese, the department chair of the Schaefer School of Engineering & Science at Stevens who co-authored the original paper on PassGAN. READ MORE: Three ways artificial intelligence can improve campus cybersecurity. The talk will expand on how deep learning models allow researchers to gain and interpret important intelligence -- such as semantic similarities between user passwords -- from large password data sets. "In our work, we show that these neural representations capture many properties of password distributions and enable new password guessing techniques," the study's leading researcher, Dario Pasquini, says in a preview of the upcoming IEEE talk.


A Must-Have Tool for Every Data Scientist

#artificialintelligence

Let's face it; training a machine learning model is time-consuming. Even with the advancement in computing prowess over the past few years, training machine learning models takes a lot of time. Even the most trivial models have more than a million parameters. On a bigger scale, these models have over a billion parameters(GPT-3 has over 175 billion parameters!), and training these models takes days, if not weeks. As a Data Scientist, we would want to keep an eye on the model's metrics to know if the model performs as per expectations.


TOP 10 OPENCV PROJECTS in 2020

#artificialintelligence

In this video we will look at the top 10 projects for opencv in 2020. OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision Library) is an open source computer vision and machine learning software library. OpenCV was built to provide a common infrastructure for computer vision applications and to accelerate the use of machine perception in the commercial products. In this video we will look at the top 10 projects for opencv in 2020. OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision Library) is an open source computer vision and machine learning software library.


[P] Sidewalk-following "SDC" with AOgmaNeo clips

#artificialintelligence

This is using a biological-type AI system I developed at Ogma called AOgmaNeo (Arduino-compatible OgmaNeo). It is the latest implementation of SPH (Sparse Predictive Hierarchies) I have done. This isn't the final video, so I posted it on my personal channel. Hopefully a more produced one will be made soon! While it can also run on Arduino (some demos for that soon hopefully), this video is using a Pi 4, which does both training and inference in real-time (60fps) as the robot drives.


Linear Regression and Logistic Regression using R Studio

#artificialintelligence

In this section we will learn - What does Machine Learning mean. What are the meanings or different terms associated with machine learning? You will see some examples so that you understand what machine learning actually is. It also contains steps involved in building a machine learning model, not just linear models, any machine learning model.


Hey Google … What Movie Should I Watch Today? How AI Can Affect Our Decisions

#artificialintelligence

Have you ever used Google Assistant, Apple's Siri, or Amazon Alexa to make decisions for you? Perhaps you asked it what new movies have good reviews, or to recommend a cool restaurant in your neighborhood. Artificial intelligence and virtual assistants are constantly being refined, and may soon be making appointments for you, offering medical advice, or trying to sell you a bottle of wine. Although AI technology has miles to go to develop social skills on par with ours, some AI has shown impressive language understanding and can complete relatively complex interactive tasks. In several 2018 demonstrations, Google's AI made haircut and restaurant reservations without receptionists realizing they were talking with a non-human.


NPS' Data Science, AI Certificate Programs Support DOD Workforce Development

#artificialintelligence

On Sept. 9, during the DOD's semi-annual Artificial Intelligence Symposium and Exposition, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper affirmed that the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) in partnership with the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) and Defense Acquisition University will collaboratively develop an intensive six-week pilot course delivered to more than 80 defense acquisition professionals of all ranks and grades. "These trainees will learn how to apply AI and data science skills to our operations," Esper said in his remarks. "With the support of Congress, the Department plans to request additional funding for the services to grow this effort over time and deliver an AI-ready workforce to the American people." Just as the university's highly-regarded Harnessing Artificial Intelligence video course paved the way for its support of the pilot course, NPS is well positioned to support Esper's declaration for further workforce development through its existing Data Science Certificate, and an upcoming similar certificate program in Artificial Intelligence. In the ongoing effort to expand the Navy's knowledge and expertise in the fields of data science and artificial intelligence, NPS faculty have developed courses that enable students to quickly gain insights in these critical disciplines.


Microsoft wants to make sure we don't fall victim to murderous AI

#artificialintelligence

Anyone worried about the threat of a Skynet-esque rise of the machines may be able to rest a little easier after the release of new protective measures designed to avoid a potential AI uprising. The nonprofit MITRE Corporation has teamed up with 12 top technology companies, including the likes of Microsoft, IBM and Nvidia to launch the Adversarial ML Threat Matrix. The group says the system is an open framework created to help security analysts spot, alert, respond to and address threats targeting machine learning (ML) systems. Microsoft says the release was motivated by a continuing growth in the number of attacks against commercial ML sytems around the world. The company surveyed a selection of 28 major businesses, finding that almost all are still unaware of the threat that adversarial machine learning can pose, with twenty-five out of the 28 saying that they don't have the right tools in place to secure their ML systems.
