The 3 Deep Learning Frameworks For End-to-End Speech Recognition That Power Your Devices

#artificialintelligence

Speech recognition is invading our lives. It's built into our phones (Siri), our game consoles (Kinect), our smartwatches (Apple Watch), and even our homes (Amazon Echo). But speech recognition has been around for decades, so why is it just now hitting the mainstream? The reason is that deep learning finally made speech recognition accurate enough to be useful outside of carefully-controlled environments. In this blog post, we'll learn how to perform speech recognition with 3 different implementations of popular deep learning frameworks.


AI in the Workplace: What it Means to the Gender Wage Gap in 2019

#artificialintelligence

As we saw in Minding the Gender Gap, women still lag far behind men in the tech field, both in terms of representations (which hovers around 25% in the United States), and in terms of pay, where the gap between men and women is close to 12%. While figures for pay disparity in tech don't focus on specialists in artificial intelligence (AI), female representation there is even lower. According to the report, Discriminating Systems: Gender, Race, and Power, conferences women make up only 18% of the represented authors at AI conferences and less than 20% of AI professors. They fare even worse in corporations where they make up only 15% of research staff positions at Facebook and a mere 10% at Google.

[Online] AI/Machine Learning for beginners

#artificialintelligence

This is a 1-week/10 hours long, part-time and instructor-led training offered in evening time (New York Timezone) by 6FS.io, a San Francisco based technology company. This training program is built based on 6FS team's years of experience in building large-scale solutions using various various Big Data and AI/ML technologies. This is not a book-based training, rather a hands-on, interactive experience app building apps using AI/ML, delivered by experienced startup CTOs. While learning basic concepts like Python, Jupyter notebooks, and training models and human powered labeling, you'll also learn practical problems and solutions, based on how Dean and Adrian built technology stacks in their previous startups. Let's build a project to gather data from human labeling service like AWS Sage maker GroundTruth.


10 Essential Cheat Sheets for Machine Learning and Deep Learning Engineers

#artificialintelligence

Learn the fundamentals of computational mathematics and statistics, as well as some pseudocode being used today by data scientists and analysts. As a popular language of programming, Python is simple and easy to learn. It reduces the time of developing an application with its features of easy compilation and simple syntaxes. Machine learning is exploding, with smart algorithms being used everywhere from email to smartphone apps to marketing campaigns. DataRobot wants to make machine learning so simple that a business analyst with basic training can run predictive models without breaking a sweat.


Facebook's latest AI experiment helps you pick what to wear

#artificialintelligence

Just when you think researchers have found the wackiest possible use for a neural net yet, another team finds an even more novel use for artificial intelligence. It's a program that will help you become a fashionista. Facebook trained Fashion by showing the AI thousands of images of outfits that were deemed "fashionable." What's innovative about the AI is that it offers suggestions that are subtle. It won't, for example, recommend that you go out of your way to buy an entirely new outfit.


Change Healthcare Artificial Intelligence Rewrites the Rules of Charge Capture

#artificialintelligence

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AHIMA booth 904--Change Healthcare (Nasdaq: CHNG) today introduced Charge Capture Advisor, a new cloud-based addition to the company's portfolio of Revenue Integrity Solutions. The solution uses Change Healthcare Artificial Intelligence to identify potentially missing charges for services that providers actually performed before claims are submitted. The result: more complete capture of services rendered without additional time and effort by hospital revenue integrity teams. Working alongside providers' existing health information system (HIS), coding, billing, and manual processes as part of a comprehensive charge-capture strategy, Charge Capture Advisor brings the power of AI to help increase detection of missing charges to drive complete claims, accelerate cash flow, and optimize revenue. "Providers are still falling short of their charge-capture potential, despite using the most sophisticated rules-based systems and meticulous manual audits," said Nick Giannasi, Ph.D., executive vice president and chief AI officer, Change Healthcare.


The virtual assistant Penn Today

#artificialintelligence

The doggie raincoat was cute the first time around, modeled by an adorable mutt and found through an intentionally clicked link. But then, like an Internet phantom, the canine outerwear kept showing up, in ads along the right-hand side of an email browser, in Facebook, and in several news articles. A product seen on a website visited once reappeared as if multiplying. It's an experience that just about anyone who does anything on the web these days has likely had: Click on a link or visit a website and suddenly, that item follows your electronic path. The strategy is called ad remarketing, and it's intended to capture the 98% of would-be consumers who view a product but don't buy it.


How to quickly solve machine learning forecasting problems using Pandas and BigQuery Google Cloud Blog

#artificialintelligence

In the rest of this blog, we'll use an example to provide more detail into how to build a forecasting model using the above workflow. Machine learning is all about running experiments. The faster you can run experiments, the more quickly you can get feedback, and thus the faster you can get to a Minimum Viable Model (MVM). Let's build a model to forecast the median housing price week-by-week for New York City. We spun up a Deep Learning VM on Cloud AI Platform and loaded our data from nyc.gov into BigQuery.


Everyday Examples of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Emerj

#artificialintelligence

With all the excitement and hype about AI that's "just around the corner"--self-driving cars, instant machine translation, etc.--it can be difficult to see how AI is affecting the lives of regular people from moment to moment. What are examples of artificial intelligence that you're already using--right now? In the process of navigating to these words on your screen, you almost certainly used AI. You've also likely used AI on your way to work, communicating online with friends, searching on the web, and making online purchases. We distinguish between AI and machine learning (ML) throughout this article when appropriate. At Emerj, we've developed concrete definitions of both artificial intelligence and machine learning based on a panel of expert feedback. To simplify the discussion, think of AI as the broader goal of autonomous machine intelligence, and machine learning as the specific scientific methods currently in vogue for building AI.


AI's Greatest Gift to Your Customers? The Vanishing Interface

#artificialintelligence

Digital experience technology is at its best when it disappears. When it melts into the customer's day. Its history has been one of incrementally removing friction from experiences until you forget the digital interface is there. Consider the humble checkout: from a multi-field form-fill for every purchase, to auto-populating upon login, to one-click, to a passing comment at a virtual assistant. The e-shopping example is an embodiment of the pursuit of the digital experience holy trinity: convenience, speed and usability.
