Hello World! for Machine Learning


The most common question that I keep getting asked is " How do I get started with Machine Learning?". I know it can be quite overwhelming- with all the different tools and resources available online and you have no idea where to start. Believe me, I have been there. So in this article, I will try to get you started with building Machine Learning models and familiarise you with the practices that are being used in the industry. I hope you know a little python which we will be using to code our model.

Neural Style Transfer


Painting has played a great part in human life. Since thousand years human represents their culture, art of living, and various more through painting. There is a saying "a picture is worth a thousand words", means many ideas can be shared through a painting. Let's how we can generate an artistic image automatically within a short period. After the rise of machine intelligence, we have taken it to another level whereby the help of Neural Network which designed in such a way that mimics the human brain can synthesize images and gives a new flavor to it in an artistic manner.

The "Ultimate" AI Textbook


In this section, we will talk about Artificial Intelligence, its history, applications, the different types of AI, and the programming languages that are used for AI. Note that I will not be talking about how to code AI but mainly focus on the various languages which support AI. No, don't close this tab!!! Ok fine, I'll start doing my job of explaining properly. "The theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages." In simple words, AI is the science of making machines that can think. It's a technique of getting machines to work and behave like humans which accomplishes this task by creating machines and robots.

Conference showcases future of artificial intelligence - SHINE News


AI has been playing a crucial rule in the delivery and logistics sector, according to experts attending the World Artificial Intelligence Conference. E-commerce giants and lifestyle services platforms also shared how smart networks would drive future growth during the Shanghai conference. The unmanned operation of warehouse management, delivery and dispatch will be crucial after the pandemic outbreak, according to Zhe Wenming, chief architect officer of JD logistics. "AI will play a crucial role in the upgrade of smart infrastructure not only for our own business but for other industry sectors as well," added Zhou Bowen, head of JD Group's technology committee and president of JD Cloud and AI business unit. Business connectivity and manufacturing synergy also requires a smart infrastructure upgrade.

Prepare for Artificial Intelligence to Produce Less Wizardry


Early last year, a large European supermarket chain deployed artificial intelligence to predict what customers would buy each day at different stores, to help keep shelves stocked while reducing costly spoilage of goods. The company already used purchasing data and a simple statistical method to predict sales. With deep learning, a technique that has helped produce spectacular AI advances in recent years--as well as additional data including local weather, traffic conditions, and competitors' actions--the company cut the number of errors by three-quarters. It was precisely the kind of high-impact, cost-saving effect that people expect from AI. But there was a huge catch: The new algorithm required so much computation that the company chose not to use it.

AI for self-driving cars doesn't account for crime -- GCN


Existing approaches to artificial intelligence for self-driving cars don't account for the fact that people might try to use the autonomous vehicles to do something bad, researchers report. For example, let's say that there is an autonomous vehicle with no passengers and it's about to crash into a car containing five people. It can avoid the collision by swerving out of the road, but it would then hit a pedestrian. Most discussions of ethics in this scenario focus on whether the autonomous vehicle's AI should be selfish (protecting the vehicle and its cargo) or utilitarian (choosing the action that harms the fewest people). But that either/or approach to ethics can raise problems of its own.

Machine Learning Basics: Polynomial Regression


Learn to build a Polynomial Regression model to predict the values for a non-linear dataset. In this article, we will go through the program for building a Polynomial Regression model based on the non-linear data. In the previous examples of Linear Regression, when the data is plotted on the graph, there was a linear relationship between both the dependent and independent variables. Thus, it was more suitable to build a linear model to get accurate predictions. What if the data points had the following non-linearity making the linear model giving an error in predictions due to non-linearity? In this case, we have to build a polynomial relationship which will accurately fit the data points in the given plot.

AI In Human Resources – To AI or not to AI?


Every department in a company has its own challenges. In the case of Human Resources, recruitment and onboarding processes, employee orientations, process paperwork, and background checks is a handful and many a time painstaking – mostly because of the repetitive and manual nature of the work. The most challenging of all is engaging with employees on human grounds to understand their needs. As leaders today are observing the AI revolution across every process, Human resources is no exception: there has been a visible wave of AI disruption across HR functions. According to an IBM's survey from 2017, among 6000 executives, 66% of CEO's believe that cognitive computing can drive compelling value in HR while half of the HR personnel believe this may affect roles in the HR organization.

A new way to train AI systems could keep them safer from hackers


The context: One of the best unsolved defects of deep knowing is its vulnerability to so-called adversarial attacks. When included to the input of an AI system, these perturbations, apparently random or undetected to the human eye, can make things go totally awry. Stickers tactically put on a stop indication, for instance, can deceive a self-driving automobile into seeing a speed limitation indication for 45 miles per hour, while sticker labels on a roadway can puzzle a Tesla into drifting into the incorrect lane. Safety important: Most adversarial research study concentrates on image acknowledgment systems, however deep-learning-based image restoration systems are susceptible too. This is especially uncomfortable in healthcare, where the latter are typically utilized to rebuild medical images like CT or MRI scans from x-ray information.

Get Started at Machine Learning -- The Right Mindset


You got intrigued by the machine learning world and wanted to get started as soon as possible, read all the articles, watched all the videos, but still isn't sure about where to start, welcome to the club. Before we dive into the machine learning world, you should take a step back and think, what is stopping you from getting started? If you think about it, most of the time, we presuppose things about ourselves and assume that to be true without question. The most normal presumption that we make about ourselves is that we need to have prior knowledge before getting started. Get a degree, complete a course, or have a good understanding of a particular subject.
