Deep learning and machine learning to transform cybersecurity

#artificialintelligence

CYBERSECURITY specialists have been betting on artificial intelligence (AI) to defend their organizations against sophisticated cyberattacks for quite a while now -- and it seems as though deep learning and machine learning have the potential to deliver. AI is a broad term that encompasses computer vision, machine learning, and deep learning, and generally offers the ability to mimic human actions, intelligently, and at incredible speed. For hackers trying to "guess" a password, it means AI can not only use "trial and error" to break into a victim's account much faster but also do it intelligently so that that the account doesn't get locked before the right password is guessed. On the other side of the fence, or network, cybersecurity professionals didn't immediately benefit from AI because systems in place don't automatically lend themselves to the technology -- however, experts bet on two niche elements of AI to find a solution. Those niche areas are machine learning and deep learning.


Future of the deep learning? Geekboots Story

#artificialintelligence

You might not know it, but deep learning already plays a part in our everyday life. When you speak to your phone via Cortana, Siri or Google Now and it fetches information, or you type in the Google search box and it predicts what you are looking for before you finish, you are doing something that has only been made possible by deep learning. Deep learning is part of a broader family of machine learning methods based on learning data representations, as opposed to task-specific algorithms. It also is known as deep structured learning or hierarchical learning. The term Deep Learning was introduced to the machine learning community by Rina Dechter in 1986, and to Artificial Neural Networks by Igor Aizenberg and colleagues in 2000, in the context of Boolean threshold neurons.

Microsoft Vision AI Developer Kit Simplifies Building Vision-Based Deep Learning Projects

#artificialintelligence

For the Vision AI Developer Kit, Microsoft and Qualcomm have partnered to simplify training and deploying computer vision-based AI models. Developers can use Microsoft's cloud-based AI and IoT services on Azure to train models while deploying them on the smart camera edge device powered by a Qualcomm's AI accelerator. Let's take a close look at Vision AI Developer Kit. The Vision AI Developer Kit not only looks stylish and sophisticated, but also boasts of an impressive configuration. The kit is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 603 processor, 4GB of LDDR4X memory and 16GB of eMMC storage.


What Is Probability?

#artificialintelligence

Uncertainty involves making decisions with incomplete information, and this is the way we generally operate in the world. Handling uncertainty is typically described using everyday words like chance, luck, and risk. Probability is a field of mathematics that gives us the language and tools to quantify the uncertainty of events and reason in a principled manner. In this post, you will discover a gentle introduction to probability. Photo by Emma Jane Hogbin Westby, some rights reserved.


Huawei Wants To Tackle NVIDIA And Google With A Solid AI Strategy

#artificialintelligence

It supports mainstream deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch and PaddlePaddle. Tensor Engine and its operators are Huawei's equivalent of NVIDIA cuDNN, a library that makes CUDA accessible to AI developers. MindSpore is Huawei's own unified training/inference framework architected to be design-friendly, operations-friendly that's adaptable to multiple scenarios. It includes core subsystems, such as a model library, graph compute, and tuning toolkit; a unified, distributed architecture for machine learning, deep learning, and reinforcement learning; a flexible program interface along with support for multiple languages. MindSpore is highly optimized for Ascend chips. It takes advantage of the hardware innovations that went into the design of the AI chips.


How deep learning can maximize player performance in sports

#artificialintelligence

We treat athletes as if they are real-life superheroes that overcome physical challenges to achieve greatness in their respective sports. Today's athletes are physically faster, stronger and more agile than the generation before, but something is wrong. We have not made the same progress in improving athletes' mental skills and health as we have physical skills and health. The focus of any individual or team sport is to maximize player performance. In our sports culture, we are obsessed with team and player statistics using traditional measures in each sport.


Deep Learning at scale for the construction of galaxy catalogs - insideHPC

#artificialintelligence

A team of scientists is now applying the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance supercomputers to accelerate efforts to analyze the increasingly massive datasets produced by ongoing and future cosmological surveys. In a new study, researchers from NCSA and Argonne have developed a novel combination of deep learning methods to provide a highly accurate approach to classifying hundreds of millions of unlabeled galaxies. The team's findings were published in Physics Letters B. "The NCSA Gravity Group initiated, and continues to spearhead, the use of deep learning at scale for gravitational wave astrophysics. We have expanded our research portfolio to address a computational grand challenge in cosmology, innovating the use of several deep learning methods in combination with high-performance computing (HPC)," said Eliu Huerta, NCSA Gravity Group Lead. "Our work also showcases how the interoperability of NSF and DOE supercomputing resources can be used to accelerate science."


AI Gets the Picture: Streamlining Business Processes with Image and Video Classification

#artificialintelligence

One of the hot trends in artificial intelligence (AI) revolves around the use of deep learning (DL) technologies for image and video classification. These AI-driven applications use computer vision to classify or categorize an image or video file on the basis on its visual content. So, what is deep learning? In a few words, DL is a subset of machine learning (ML), and one of the key building blocks for AI solutions. It uses artificial neural networks as the underlying architecture for training algorithms, or models.


Generating Training Datasets Using Energy Based Models that Actually Scale

#artificialintelligence

Energy-Based Models(EBM) is one of the most promising areas of deep learning that hasn't seen a tremendous level of adoption yet. Conceptually, EBMs are a form of generative modeling that learns the key characteristics of a target dataset and tries to generate similar datasets. While EBMs results appealing because of its simplicity they have experienced many challenges when applied in real world applications. Recently, AI-powerhouse OpenAI published a new research paper that explores a new technique to create EBM model that can scale across complex deep learning topologies. EBMs are typically used in one of the most complex problems of real world deep learning solutions: generating quality training datasets.
