Machine Learning Using Titanic Data

#artificialintelligence

All categorical values were then converted into dummy variables for easier analysis when input into the model. The last step would be to normalize data-transform the data to center it by removing the mean value of each feature, then scale it by dividing non-constant features by their standard deviation. Now it's time to start creating our model. I used a simple model to get a headstart into things and then went on modifying it through evaluating the accuracy. I created a neural network that has three layers.


5 Ways Machine Learning Helps us in our Everyday Lives

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning and artificial intelligence are often used interchangeably since the former is a subset of the latter. Along with professional and industrial usage of machine learning, now a layman is getting used to the perks of machine learning in routine tasks. With the arrival of machine learning manual labor has become obsolete and now due to the superintelligence of those very machines, mental labor and capabilities would also be performed through machine learning. Machine learning is a popular application of artificial intelligence where the devices possess cognitive abilities similar to those of humans. The machines learn based on data and input provided to them daily.


Linear Algebra 101 -- Part 9: Singular Value Decomposition (SVD)

#artificialintelligence

Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) is another type of decomposition. Unlike eigendecomposition where the matrix you want to decompose has to be a square matrix, SVD allows you to decompose a rectangular matrix (a matrix that has different numbers of rows and columns). This is often more useful in a real-life scenario since the rectangular matrix could represent a wide variety of data that's not a square matrix. First, let's look at the definition itself. As you can see, SVD decomposes the matrix into 3 different matrices.


Huawei Launches Petal Search, Petal Maps, HUAWEI Docs and More - Digital Street

#artificialintelligence

Huawei today announced new developments to Huawei Mobile Services ecosystem at the HUAWEI Mate 40 Series launch event, launching Petal Search, Petal Maps, HUAWEI Docs, levelling up global Huawei users' digital experience with other new updates. Huawei's official search engine app, Petal Search now is available in over 170 countries and regions and supports over 50 languages, letting users conveniently and instantly find out the information and services they need. Petal Search offers search capabilities across more than 20 categories, including apps, news, videos, images, shopping, flights, and local business. It also develops and integrates various tools, such as weather, calculator, rate exchange and even paper query to help user easily obtain daily-used information. With the new update, the search experience is now visually richer.


Enterprise Scale ML Jumpstart Kit -- FastAI + RabbitMQ + Docker

#artificialintelligence

As most ML practitioners realize, developing a predictive model in Jupyter Notebook and making the predictions with excel data may not help you build the predictive models required at enterprise scale. To build the model at such a scale, you will need to consider several requirements and use various tools/frameworks that are especially designed to meet the purpose of this expansion. Most of the tutorials online speak about the productionization of ML models as exposing them as a REST service with the help of Apache Flask. But in reality, the requirements are much more steep, and in this article I will be explaining the key challenges to consider and then will provide you with a containerized, enterprise scale, 'fully loaded' ML jumpstart kit that you can readily deploy towards your model productionization purposes. In this article, I will explain in detail the key challenges to consider while productionizing prediction models and will show you how to setup an environment with docker containers.



Machine Learning Algorithms from Start to Finish in Python: Logistic Regression

#artificialintelligence

Going back to our example, let's assume that the Lakers were having a terrible season(clearly not the case), and out of 20 games, they only won 1. so the odds to the Lakers winning would be: We can make a simple observation: the worse they play, the more close their odds of winning will be to 0. Concretely, when the odds are against them winning, then the odds will range between 0 and 1. Now let's look at the opposite. In other words, when the odds are for the Lakers winning, they begin at 1 and they can go all the way up to infinity. Clearly, there is a problem here. This asymmetry makes it hard to compare the odds for or against Lakers winning.


Essential data science skills that no one talks about.

#artificialintelligence

The top results are long lists of technical terms, named hard skills. Python, algebra, statistics, and SQL are some of the most popular ones. Later, there come soft skills -- communication, business acumen, team player, etc. Let's pretend that you are a super-human possessing all the above abilities. You code from the age of five, you are a Kaggle grandmaster and your conference papers are guaranteed to get a best-paper award. There is still a very high chance that your projects struggle to reach maturity and become full-fledged commercial products. Recent studies estimate that more than 85% of data science projects fail to reach production. The studies provide numerous reasons for the failures.


How AI & Data Analytics Can Solve Supply Chain Pitfalls

#artificialintelligence

The supply chain is an ecosystem that affects businesses around the world, and the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a monkey wrench into this previously undisturbed process. With region-specific restrictions, limited supply of certain goods, and a constantly changing consumer mindset, almost all businesses are playing catch up in addressing the needs of every consumer. Add to that the oil price war and the result is near chaos for both consumers and businesses. It may be a gamble to implement new supply chain systems in these circumstances, but it's a bet that could pay dividends not just now but in the long term. Artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics tools can provide the much-needed push companies need to keep their businesses afloat--and maybe even thrive--despite the global crisis.

Awais briefly explores the AI applications and technologies that government bodies and agencies in China recruited to curb the spread of Covid19, whilst maintaining a form of functioning society for its citizens. China use of its mass surveillance system has always been a subject of controversy when it comes to the handling of personal privacy. Awais explores the benefits that this once frowned upon method of citizen governing and monitoring is the reason why China's handling of the Covid-19 crisis better than certain nations around the globe, even though initially reported cases of Covid-19 originated in China. AI technology, big data and robots were more than instrumental in the effective tackling of the spread of Covid-19 within China. Awais mentions the utilisation of various forms of AI-based technology such as facial recognition, mask detection and heat reading, to monitor, alert and inform citizens on all Covid-19 related cases in their local vicinity.
