Nothing but NumPy: Understanding & Creating Binary Classification Neural Networks with…

#artificialintelligence

Nothing but Numpy is a continuation of my neural network series. To view the previous blog in this series or for a refresher on neural networks you may click here. This post continues from Understanding and Creating Neural Networks with Computational Graphs from Scratch. It's easy to feel lost when you have twenty browser tabs open trying to understand a complex concept and most of the writeups you come across regurgitate the same shallow explanations. In this second installment of Nothing but NumPy, I'll again strive to give the reader a deeper understanding of neural networks as we delve deeper into a specific kind of neural network called a "Binary Classification Neural Network".


Machine Learning with GitOps and Progressive Delivery

#artificialintelligence

Many already know containers and Kubernetes, but not a lot are aware of service meshes. A service mesh is a layer in your Kubernetes cluster that is a combination of an ingress controller and routing daemon. It also allows you to route network traffic and control how pods and namespaces are interconnected. Service meshes can do load balancing, traffic switching and they also have a dynamic and programmable control plane. When you want to do more advanced deployments like A/B testing and canaries for machine learning applications, a service mesh is both useful and often necessary.


Use TensorFlow.js to do Kaggle -- A practice of Deep Learning Training

#artificialintelligence

In a word, the mnist-10 dataset is for hand-written digits recognition, where each image is a black-white image with a size of 28 * 28. Let's have a look at the train.csv This code will take one data from the dataset and print it out. As we can see from the console, the dataset has two parts xs which is a hashmap(dictionary) of each pixel and its corresponding value (ranges from 0–255) and ys which is the corresponding label. Okay, firstly, we need to wrap xs and ys as tensors so that the TensorFlow.js can smoothly deal with them.


Neutrinos Lead to Unexpected Discovery in Basic Math Quanta Magazine

#artificialintelligence

After breakfast one morning in August, the mathematician Terence Tao opened an email from three physicists he didn't know. The trio explained that they'd stumbled across a simple formula that, if true, established an unexpected relationship between some of the most basic and important objects in linear algebra. The formula "looked too good to be true," said Tao, who is a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, a Fields medalist, and one of the world's leading mathematicians. "Something this short and simple -- it should have been in textbooks already," he said. "So my first thought was, no, this can't be true."


Zendrive Welcomes John Kramer as New Director of Insurance Sales

#artificialintelligence

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zendrive, a mission-driven company using data and analytics to make roads safer and insurance fairer, today announced John Kramer as Director of Insurance Sales. He brings with him nearly 20 years of insurance experience in underwriting, usage-based insurance, product management, and connected car technology. "Zendrive is an established leader in driving analytics and research, with the world's largest driving data set of over 180 billion miles," said John Kramer. "The company is thinking critically about how to apply its unique, predictive telematics factors and innovative technology solutions to the insurance industry. I'm proud to join such a passionate team powering a modern, data-driven future alongside our insurance provider partners."


Up-sampling with Transposed Convolution

#artificialintelligence

If you've heard about the transposed convolution and got confused what it actually means, this article is written for you. The notebook is available in my GitHub. When we use neural networks to generate images, it usually involves up-sampling from low resolution to high resolution. All these methods involve some interpolation method which we need to chose when deciding a network architecture. It is like a manual feature engineering and there is nothing that the network can learn about.


Use of geospatial AI for business development

#artificialintelligence

When it comes to the relationship between business development and technological innovation, we can generally separate two schools of thought. There are those who believe that technological progress is what propels businesses forward. And on the other hand, there are those who are certain that business investments are what makes innovations like contemporary geospatial AI possible. As with most opposing opinions – the truth is somewhere in between. Or, rather, the relations between cutting-edge tech and emerging business sectors are a never-ending circle; with business financing the research and development that enables the appearance of new tech, which in turn leads to new business opportunities and sectors.


Chinese subway stations now let you pay for tickets by scanning your face

#artificialintelligence

Facial recognition technology is used across China for everything from identifying criminals to measuring students' attention in class. Now, it has debuted a system in its subway that lets you use your face as a ticket. A report from South China Morning Post suggests the subway system in the southern city of Shenzhen has started using facial recognition technology to let folks over 60 years of age register themselves for free subway rides. Other cities such as Jinan, Shanghai, Qingdao, Nanjing, and Nanning are currently experimenting with this system. The technology in Shenzen has been deployed to 18 stations with 28 automatic gate machines and 60 self-service ticket processors.


Popularizing "Emotion AI"-- 4 Steps For Creating a New Technology Category - The CMO Club

#artificialintelligence

Until recently, technology was somewhat limited in terms of its ability to sense and adapt to human emotions and reactions. Our apps, devices and advanced AI systems have lots of cognitive intelligence, but no emotional intelligence. As such, transactions between humans and machines are relatively superficial and often ineffective. But over the last few years, Affectiva created never-before-seen technology: software that identifies complex human emotional and cognitive states, by analyzing people's faces and voices. Essentially, we infused AI with EI (emotional intelligence)--allowing for much more productive, persuasive interactions between tech and humans. This was a brand-new category that hadn't yet been defined in AI. We coined it "artificial emotional intelligence," or "Emotion AI." As a result, our challenge was to introduce the tech and establish a major footprint for it--as well as our brand--in the AI industry.
