From Garry Kasparov to Google: Hamsa Buvaraghan's Journey In The World of Algorithms


"My fascination with AI began when I first heard about IBM's supercomputer Deep Blue defeating Garry Kasparov." For this week's ML practitioner's series, Analytics India Magazine (AIM) got in touch with Hamsa Buvaraghan. Hamsa currently leads Google Cloud's Data Science and MLOps Solution team, building revolutionary software solutions for business problems using Google's Data Analytics and AI/ML products. She has an Engineering degree in Computer Science from Mysore University and an MBA, Honors from Saint Mary's College of California. Hamsa: My fascination with AI began when I was in India, back in 1997, when I heard about IBM's supercomputer Deep Blue defeating Garry Kasparov.

A guide to the field of Deep Learning


Since the list has gotten rather long, I have included an excerpt above; the full list is at the bottom of this post. At the entry level, the datasets used are small. Often, they easily fit into the main memory. If they don't already come pre-processed then it's only a few lines of code to apply such operations. Mainly you'll do so for the major domains Audio, Image, Time-series, and Text. Before diving into the large field of Deep Learning it's a good choice to study the basic techniques.

Industry Tech Outlook Magazine


The exponential growth of data traffic in our digital age poses some real challenges on processing power. And with the advent of machine learning and AI in, for example, self-driving vehicles and speech recognition, the upward trend is set to continue. All this places a heavy burden on the ability of current computer processors to keep up with demand. Now, an international team of scientists has turned to light to tackle the problem. The researchers developed a new approach and architecture that combines processing and data storage onto a single chip by using light-based, or "photonic" processors, which are shown to surpass conventional electronic chips by processing information much more rapidly and in parallel.

DeepMind scientist calls for ethical AI as Google faces ongoing backlash


Where does your enterprise stand on the AI adoption curve? Take our AI survey to find out. Raia Hadsell, a research scientist at Google DeepMind, believes "responsible AI is a job for all." That was her thesis during a talk today at the virtual Lesbians Who Tech Pride Summit, where she dove into the issues currently plaguing the field and the actions she feels are required to ensure AI is ethically developed and deployed. "AI is going to change our world in the years to come. But because it is such a powerful technology, we have to be aware of the inherent risks that will come with those benefits, especially those that can lead to bias, harm, or widening social inequity," she said.



This course will teach you foundations of deep learning and TensorFlow as well as prepare you to pass the TensorFlow Developer Certification exam (optional). Videos going through the rest of the notebooks (03 - 10) are available in the full course. New You can now read the full course as an online book! (note: this is a work in progress, but 95% of it should run fine) Check out the livestream Q&A celebrating the course launch on YouTube. Otherwise, many of them might be answered below.

How You Can Get Started With Machine Learning In Marketing


While some companies are now becoming extremely sophisticated in handling such big data and combining it to better segment and market users, a lot are still catching up. Every now and then we all hear how Machine Learning is going to take over our mundane jobs and how AI is the future. But frankly today Machine Learning and Algorithms are not a story of the future, these are everywhere, from your google searches, to your Netflix suggestions. While on the onset you might never be able to recognize this hidden intelligence in the systems around you, but these systems are designed to give you such a seamless experience that it feels almost like "Magic". Machine learning is a subset of Artificial Intelligence, and we are only going to talk about only Machine Learning for now.

Evaluating OCR Output Quality with Character Error Rate (CER) and Word Error Rate (WER)


The usual way of evaluating prediction output is with the accuracy metric, where we indicate a match (1) or a no match (0). However, this does not provide enough granularity to effectively assess OCR performance. We should instead use error rates to determine the extent to which the OCR transcribed text and ground truth text (i.e. A common intuition is to see how many characters were misspelled. While this is correct, the actual error rate calculation is more complex than that.
