If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
This post will be the first post on the series. The content is based on: the tutorial on fairness given by Solon Bacrocas and Moritz Hardt at NIPS2017, day1 and day4 from CS 294: Fairness in Machine Learning taught by Moritz Hardt at UC Berkeley and my own understanding of fairness literatures. I highly encourage interested readers to check out the linked NIPS tutorial and the course website. Fairness is becoming one of the most popular topics in machine learning in recent years. Publications explode in this field (see Fig1). The research community has invested a large amount of effort in this field.
Have you ever thought what would our lives be like in a world without Artificial Intelligence? Recall how you spend an average day of your life- you get up, then you check your smartphone. You reach your workplace, and then start working over the internet. Remember, most of your work takes place over cloud computing and other services the internet provides. Now picture that you have to look for an answer to something. For how long and in how many books are you going to keep searching for the answer? Let's take another example, you come back home and decide to order food online. Who really places the order if you are behind the screen?
This tutorial is part of the Machine learning for developers learning path. In this tutorial, we describe the basics of solving a classification-based machine learning problem, and give you a comparative study of some of the current most popular algorithms. In the open Notebook, click Run to run the cells one at a time. The rest of the tutorial follows the order of the Notebook. Classification is when the feature to be predicted contains categories of values.
Have you ever had to load a dataset that was so memory consuming that you wished a magic trick could seamlessly take care of that? Large datasets are increasingly becoming part of our lives, as we are able to harness an ever-growing quantity of data. We have to keep in mind that in some cases, even the most state-of-the-art configuration won't have enough memory space to process the data the way we used to do it. That is the reason why we need to find other ways to do that task efficiently. In this blog post, we are going to show you how to generate your data on multiple cores in real time and feed it right away to your deep learning model.
Based on Apache OpenWhisk, IBM Cloud Functions is a Functions as a Service (FaaS) platform that makes it easy to build and deploy serverless applications. In this tutorial, you'll build a serverless application using IBM Cloud Functions that monitors the content of a Cloud Object Storage bucket and analyzes the content of images that are uploaded to the bucket by a human or an automated process. For illustrative purposes, analysis is performed by a deep learning microservice from the Model Asset eXchange and analysis results are stored as JSON files in the same bucket. You can easily adapt the outlined approach to take advantage of hosted cognitive services, such as those provided by IBM Watson, and to store results in a NoSQL datastore like Cloudant or a relational database. By completing this introductory tutorial, you learn how to monitor a Cloud Object Storage bucket for changes (new objects, updated objects, or deleted objects) using Cloud Functions and how to use deep learning microservices from the Model Asset eXchange to automatically analyze those objects in near real time.
The dorg, the latest batch of digital organisms, will one day be placed in a little world to work out their destiny. The notion is to try and coax them into becoming intelligent. There's a bunch of coding that Brad has to finish first. In the meantime, they've been tuned and tested with a genetic algorithm. Today, we talk about genetic algorithms and how they can be used to speed up evolution, and point the dorg in what will hopefully turn out to be the right direction.
Machine learning is an exciting topic about designing machines that can learn from examples. The course covers the necessary theory, principles and algorithms for machine learning. The methods are based on statistics and probability-- which have now become essential to designing systems exhibiting artificial intelligence. Reference textbooks for different parts of the course are "Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning" by Chris Bishop (Springer 2006) and "Probabilistic Graphical Models" by Daphne Koller and Nir Friedman (MIT Press 2009) and "Deep Learning" by Goodfellow, Bengio and Courville (MIT Press 2016).
This Random Forest Algorithm tutorial will explain how Random Forest algorithm works in Machine Learning. By the end of this video, you will be able to understand what is Machine Learning, what is Classification problem, applications of Random Forest, why we need Random Forest, how it works with simple examples and how to implement Random Forest algorithm in Python. Below are the topics covered in this Machine Learning tutorial: 1. You can also go through the Slides here: https://goo.gl/K8T4tW Machine Learning Articles: https://www.simplilearn.com/what-is-a...

Machine learning algorithms are typically evaluated using resampling techniques such as k-fold cross-validation. During the k-fold cross-validation process, predictions are made on test sets comprised of data not used to train the model. These predictions are referred to as out-of-fold predictions, a type of out-of-sample predictions. Out-of-fold predictions play an important role in machine learning in both estimating the performance of a model when making predictions on new data in the future, so-called the generalization performance of the model, and in the development of ensemble models. In this tutorial, you will discover a gentle introduction to out-of-fold predictions in machine learning.
In my experience, learning to anything useful in computer science has fallen at the strange intersection of theory and practice. It's pretty easy to ignore the amount of depth that the lies under some of the things we code. Machine learning takes that to an extreme, and everyone wants to be a Machine Learning Engineer these days. Elements of Statistical Learning is a fantastic book. If you can get through it you'll know quite a bit, but it doesn't mean much if you're unable to put any of into practice.
