Naive-Bayes Inference for Testing


Probability is the cornerstone of Artificial Intelligence. The management of uncertainty is key to many applications of AI, such as machine learning, filtering, robotics, computer vision, NLP, search and so on. And no other sector is the management of uncertainty as crucial as it is in the health sector. At first glance, the false-negative seems more devastating. Of course, a false allergy test-result has the likely outcome of a GP administering a drug to you that could cause life-threatening issues.

How I got a Job at Facebook as a Machine Learning Engineer


It was August last year and I was in the process of giving interviews. By that point in time, I was already interviewing for Google India and Amazon India for Machine Learning and Data Science roles respectively. And then my senior advised me to apply for a role in Facebook London. Contacted a recruiter on LinkedIn, who introduced me to another one and my process started after a few days for the role of Machine Learning Engineer. Now Facebook has a pretty different process when it comes to hiring Machine learning engineers. They do coding rounds, system design, and machine learning design interviews to select future employees.

Apple Acquires AI Startup Vilynx to Improve Siri


Apple earlier this year acquired artificial intelligence startup Vilynx with the aim of improving the Siri voice assistant built into Apple devices, reports Bloomberg. The Vilynx website is now defunct, but the company described itself as "AI for media," and it developed tools to help media companies compete against Netflix and other major media giants. Vilynx had a tool that catalogued raw video to make it searchable, providing metadata for video, text, and images. It processed video and then provided relevant content tags. The service also generated rich, motion previews of content offerings, and provided search tools for surfacing content across videos, articles, and images.

AI camera used to replace humans during soccer games confuses referee's bald head with the ball

Daily Mail - Science & tech

An AI camera at a soccer game in Scotland kept tracking a bald referee instead of the ball during a game. Inverness Caledonian Thistle played Ayr United on Saturday in a home game at the Caledonian Stadium. The team doesn't use a cameraman to film games; instead the group relies on an automated camera system to follow the action. Center forward Nikola Todorov scored the team's first point of the season and, according to Thick Accent, 'the camera kept on mistaking the ball for the bald head on the sidelines, denying viewers of the real action while focusing on the linesman instead.' The AI cameras at Caledonian Stadium in Inverness, Scotland, kept mistaking this referee's bald head for the soccer ball.

'Watch Dogs: Legion' review in progress: Virtual London is legit, but story's a snooze so far

Washington Post - Technology News

For the jailbreak mission, I used the "spy" character, whom I obtained as the reward for "freeing" the Westminster district of propaganda. Just as an aside, the Westminster mission showed the reward as a silhouette of a man with a beret, but the spy turned out to be a middle-aged woman in a sharp blazer armed with a silencer. A fellow reviewer told me he got an older black gentleman in a suit for that same mission, which indicates that even the more specialized characters are randomized. This might be worth keeping in mind for players looking for characters they think might look or dress or move a certain type of way.
