Openness a Big Advantage as Edge Grows, IBM Says


A large computational build-up is predicted to occur on the edge in the coming years, as organizations look to capture and act upon data as soon after it's generated as possible, when it has the highest value. Today, there are few standards and protocols defined for how all this is going to work. But in the meantime, hardware and software providers, including IBM, are espousing the benefits of an open ecosystem approach. The edge, which includes server rooms, cell towers, and smaller data centers deployed in the field, is set to proliferate over the next five years, according to the IDC. By 2025, 50% of new on-premise infrastructure will be deployed in edge locations, up from 10% today, the company says.

Who Should be Responsible when Robots and AI Cause Accidents


Who should be considered lawfully responsible when a self-driving vehicle hits a walker? Should the finger be pointed at the car proprietor, manufacturers or the engineers of the artificial intelligence (AI) software that drives the vehicle? The question of deciding'risk' for decision making achieved by robots or artificial intelligence is an intriguing and significant subject as the usage of this innovation increases in the industry, and starts to all the more directly sway our everyday lives. To be sure, as applications of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning innovation develops, we are probably going to observe how it changes the idea of work, organizations, businesses and society. But, in spite of the fact that it has the ability to disrupt and drive more prominent efficiencies, AI has its snags: the issue of'who is at risk when something goes astray' being one of them.

Develop Fake News Classifier using LSTM


This article will explain the concept to identify fake news. We use Deep Learning to classify a set of articles into'fake' and'real' news classes. The data set contains three CSV files which are train, test, and submit files. Now reset the index because we remove the nan values. Data pre-processing because the data have different characters, special characters, spaces and words that are not important. For that we can remove them with stopwords.

How to Train a Deep Learning TensorFlow Analytic to Play Checkers


Bot Libre now allows you to create generic deep learning analytics and train them through our web API. Deep learning analytics can be used for a wide array of purposes to analyze and make predications on data. This example shows how to train a deep learning analytic to play checkers. You can use either the Bot Libre deep learning library, or the TensorFlow deep learning library. You can choose the inputs, outputs, and layers.

Artificial intelligence and national security: Integrating online data


Artificial intelligence (AI) is now a major priority for government and defense worldwide -- one that some countries, such as China and Russia, consider the new global arms race. AI has the potential to support a number of national and international security initiatives, from cybersecurity to logistics and counter-terrorism. The overwhelming amount of public data available online is crucial for supporting a number of these use cases. These sources include unstructured social media data from both fringe and mainstream platforms, as well as deep and dark web data. While valuable, these sources are not always easily accessible through commercial threat intelligence platforms.

Artificial intelligence reveals hundreds of millions of trees in the Sahara


If you think that the Sahara is covered only by golden dunes and scorched rocks, you aren't alone. In an area of West Africa 30 times larger than Denmark, an international team, led by University of Copenhagen and NASA researchers, has counted over 1.8 billion trees and shrubs. The 1.3 million km2 area covers the western-most portion of the Sahara Desert, the Sahel and what are known as sub-humid zones of West Africa. "We were very surprised to see that quite a few trees actually grow in the Sahara Desert, because up until now, most people thought that virtually none existed. We counted hundreds of millions of trees in the desert alone. Doing so wouldn't have been possible without this technology. Indeed, I think it marks the beginning of a new scientific era," asserts Assistant Professor Martin Brandt of the University of Copenhagen's Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, lead author of the study's scientific article, now published in Nature.

The True Impact of Baselines in Policy Gradient Methods – Marlos C. Machado


I have been working with policy gradient (PG) methods for quite some time now and I thought I should continue sharing our findings here. In June, we put out a paper on how we could see PG methods from an operators perspective. I even wrote a blog post on this. Today I'm going to talk about a paper we put out last month about the role of baselines in PG methods. As in my previous post, let me first talk about the standard view of PG methods.

Artificial Intelligence Definitions


Intelligence might be defined as learning and performing suitable techniques to solve problems and achieve goals appropriate to the context in an uncertain, ever-varying world. A fully pre-programmed factory robot is flexible, accurate, and consistent but not intelligent. Artificial Intelligence (AI), a term coined by emeritus Stanford Professor John McCarthy in 1955, defined him as "the science and engineering of making intelligent machines." Much research has humans program machines to behave cleverly, like playing chess, but, today, we emphasize machines that can learn somewhat as human beings do. Autonomous systems can independently plan and decide sequences of steps to achieve a specified goal without micro-management.

The best smart speakers of 2020

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

The Bose Home 300's sleek design fits in well with most decor. We weren't sure what to expect upon opening the Bose Home 300 for testing, but we were pleasantly surprised on almost every level. While the sound quality can't quite compete with the (much larger) Echo Studio, the Bose Home 300 allows users to choose between Alexa or Google Assistant; it has handy preset buttons on the top of the speaker; and it can stream audio over Bluetooth, AirPlay, WiFi, or via an old-school auxiliary cable. Through its app and smart assistants, the Bose Home 300 can play music from a large number of streaming services, such as Spotify, TuneIn, Amazon Music, Tidal, Pandora, and even Apple Music via Airplay or Bluetooth. The compatible music and podcast sources will vary a bit depending on which smart assistant you choose (you can only use one assistant at a time, however it is very easy to switch in the Bose app). Though not any larger, this speaker is much louder than most of the other smart speakers we included in this roundup.
