Does your Machine Learning pipeline have a pulse?

#artificialintelligence

The process of building and training Machine Learning models is always in the spotlight. There is a lot of talk about different Neural Network architectures, or new frameworks, facilitating the idea-to-implementation transition. While these are the heart of an ML engine, the circulatory system, which enables nutrients to move around and connects everything, is often missing. But what comprises this system? What gives the pipeline its pulse? The most important component in an ML pipeline works silently in the background and provides the glue that binds everything together.


System brings deep learning to Internet of Things devices

#artificialintelligence

This branch of artificial intelligence curates your social media and serves your Google search results. Soon, deep learning could also check your vitals or set your thermostat. MIT researchers have developed a system that could bring deep learning neural networks to new--and much smaller--places, like the tiny computer chips in wearable medical devices, household appliances, and the 250 billion other objects that constitute the "internet of things" (IoT). The system, called MCUNet, designs compact neural networks that deliver unprecedented speed and accuracy for deep learning on IoT devices, despite limited memory and processing power. The technology could facilitate the expansion of the IoT universe while saving energy and improving data security.


NLP using Deep Learning Tutorials : Understand Loss Function

#artificialintelligence

This article is a part of a series that I'm writing, and where I will try to address the topic of using Deep Learning in NLP. First of all, I was writing an article for an example of text classification using a perceptron, but I was thinking that will be better to review some basics before, as activation and loss functions. Loss function also called the objective function, is one of the main bricks in supervised machine learning algorithm which is based on labeled data. A loss function guides the training algorithm to update parameters in the right way. In a much simple definition, a loss function takes a truth (y) and a prediction (ŷ) as input and gives a score of real value number. This value indicates how much the prediction is close to the truth.


New research indicates the whole universe could be a giant neural network

#artificialintelligence

The core idea is deceptively simple: every observable phenomenon in the entire universe can be modeled by a neural network. And that means, by extension, the universe itself may be a neural network. Vitaly Vanchurin, a professor of physics at the University of Minnesota Duluth, published an incredible paper last August entitled "The World as a Neural Network" on the arXiv pre-print server. It managed to slide past our notice until today when Futurism's Victor Tangermann published an interview with Vanchurin discussing the paper. We discuss a possibility that the entire universe on its most fundamental level is a neural network.


We don't need to worry about Overfitting anymore

#artificialintelligence

Motivated by prior work connecting the geometry of the loss landscape and generalization, we introduce a novel, effective procedure for instead simulta- neously minimizing loss value and loss sharpness. In particular, our procedure, Sharpness-Aware Minimization (SAM), seeks parameters that lie in neighbor- hoods having uniformly low loss; this formulation results in a min-max optimiza- tion problem on which gradient descent can be performed efficiently. We present empirical results showing that SAM improves model generalization across a variety of benchmark datasets[1] In Deep Learning we use optimization algorithms such as SGD/Adam to achieve convergence in our model, which leads to finding the global minima, i.e a point where the loss of the training dataset is low. But several kinds of research such as Zhang et al have shown, many networks can easily memorize the training data and have the capacity to readily overfit, To prevent this problem and add more generalization, Researchers at Google have published a new paper called Sharpness Awareness Minimization which provides State of the Art results on CIFAR10 and other datasets. In this article, we will look at why SAM can achieve better generalization and how we can implement SAM in Pytorch.


Maximize existing QA vision systems with Deep Learning AI - Mariner

#artificialintelligence

The reputation and bottom line of a company can be adversely affected if defective products are released. If a defect is not detected, and the flawed product is not removed early in the production process, the damage can be costly – and the higher the unit value, the higher those costs will be. And worst of all, dissatisfied customers can demand returns. To mitigate these costs, many manufacturers install cameras to monitor their products as they move along their production lines. However, the data obtained may not always be useful – or more appropriately said, the data is useful, but existing machine vision systems may not be able to accurately assess it at full production speeds.

Iedereen weet toch dat we parasieten zijn op een hele grote ui?';) New research indicates the whole universe could be a giant neural network TNW (...) If we're all nodes in a neural network, what's the network's purpose? Is the universe one giant, closed network or is it a single layer in a grander network? Or perhaps we're just one of trillions of other universes connected to the same network. When we train our neural networks we run thousands or millions of cycles until the AI is properly "trained." Are we just one of an innumerable number of training cycles for some larger-than-universal machine's greater purpose?


Google Open-Sources Trillion-Parameter AI Language Model Switch Transformer

#artificialintelligence

Researchers at Google Brain have open-sourced the Switch Transformer, a natural-language processing (NLP) AI model. The model scales up to 1.6T parameters and improves training time up to 7x compared to the T5 NLP model, with comparable accuracy. The team described the model in a paper published on arXiv. The Switch Transformer uses a mixture-of-experts (MoE) paradigm to combine several Transformer attention blocks. Because only a subset of the model is used to process a given input, the number of model parameters can be increased while holding computational cost steady.

Machine learning and deep learning have become an important part of many applications we use every day. There are few domains that the fast expansion of machine learning hasn't touched. Many businesses have thrived by developing the right strategy to integrate machine learning algorithms into their operations and processes. Others have lost ground to competitors after ignoring the undeniable advances in artificial intelligence. But mastering machine learning is a difficult process.
