An End-to-End Data Science Project on Diabetes


I used Jupyter Notebook as the Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The libraries required are; numpy, pandas, matplotlib, pickle or joblib and scikit-learn. These are pre-installed in the latest version of Anaconda. If you don't have any of these libraries you can pip install them or update conda. The dataset used for this model is the Pima Indians Diabetes dataset which consists of several medical predictor variables and one target variable, Outcome.

Agent57: Outperforming the Human Atari Benchmark


Interfacing memory with behaviour is crucial for building systems that self-learn. In reinforcement learning, an agent can be an on-policy learner, which can only learn the value of its direct actions, or an off-policy learner, which can learn about optimal actions even when not performing those actions – e.g., it might be taking random actions, but can still learn what the best possible action would be. Off-policy learning is therefore a desirable property for agents, helping them learn the best course of action to take while thoroughly exploring their environment. Combining off-policy learning with memory is challenging because you need to know what you might remember when executing a different behaviour. For example, what you might choose to remember when looking for an apple (e.g., where the apple is located), is different to what you might choose to remember if looking for an orange.

Fraud Detection with Machine Learning Versus the Most Common Threats


Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are offering an entirely new level of possibilities to businesses worldwide, one of those possibilities is Fraud Detection. Financial institutions and banks will never be the same with the opportunities technology offers to deal with criminal activities and fight internet fraud. Learn how it works in this post! The things people used to buy at shops years ago are now purchased online, no matter what they are: furniture, food, or clothes. As a result, the global E-Commerce market is rapidly rising and estimated to reach $4.9 trillion by 2021. This undoubtedly triggers members of the criminal world to find paths to victims' wallets through the Web. Federal, local, and state law enforcement agencies along with private organizations reported 3 million cases of identity theft in 2019. Money was lost in about 25% of these cases.

Coronavirus Could be Fought with Artificial Intelligence - BioTechniques


How long can coronavirus remain infectious in the air and on contaminated surfaces? New study finds that the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, can remain viable on plastic and steel for several days, highlighting the importance of hand washing and surface cleaning amidst the current outbreak. However, the consortium is not the only group harnessing the power of artificial intelligence in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Other scientists are attempting to develop a computer model of the coronavirus, which they hope will aid in the development of new drugs and vaccines. Continuing on from the initial work conducted by the University of Texas at Austin (TX, USA), biochemists from the University of California, San Diego are endeavoring to build the first complete all-atom model of the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus envelope.

Amazon proposes technique for improving computer vision models without reprocessing


In a paper published this week on the preprint server, Amazon scientists detail a way for AI models to learn features from images that are compatible with previously computed ones. They say it enables old models to bypass computing features for all previously seen images every time new ones are added, which could save enterprises developing computer vision-enabled applications valuable time and compute power. As the researchers explain, visual classification is often accomplished by mapping each image onto a vector space -- a collection of objects called vectors -- using a machine learning model. As images of a new class become available, their vectors are used to spawn a new cluster, which is used to identify the closest to one or a set of input images.

USS Theodore Roosevelt commander says entire crew needs to be isolated after 200 positive coronavirus tests

FOX News

Dr. Nicole Saphire explains the problem asymptomatic individuals present and why we're seeing so many deaths right now Get all the latest news on coronavirus and more delivered daily to your inbox. In a desperate plea for help, the commanding officer of the deployed aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt says his entire crew of roughly 5,000 sailors needs to be isolated after up to 200 onboard have tested positive for coronavirus. Three sailors on board the aircraft carrier tested positive last week, the first time the outbreak infected a deployed U.S. warship at sea. The letter from Captain Brett Crozier to top Navy brass was first obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle. Fox News exclusively reported Sunday there were 38 positive cases aboard the massive warship.

DATAWorks2020 – Defense and Aerospace Test and Analysis Workshop


Abstract: Gaussian process regression is ubiquitous in spatial statistics, machine learning, and the surrogate modeling of computer simulation experiments. Fortunately their prowess as accurate predictors, along with an appropriate quantification of uncertainty, does not derive from difficult-to-understand methodology and cumbersome implementation. We will cover the basics, and provide a practical tool-set ready to be put to work in diverse applications. The presentation will involve accessible slides authored in Rmarkdown, with reproducible examples spanning bespoke implementation to add-on packages. Instructor Bio: Robert Gramacy is a Professor of Statistics in the College of Science at Virginia Polytechnic and State University (Virginia Tech).
