IBM's new tool lets developers add quantum-computing power to machine learning

ZDNet

IBM is releasing a new module as part of its open-source quantum software development kit, Qiskit, to let developers leverage the capabilities of quantum computers to improve the quality of their machine-learning models. Qiskit Machine Learning is now available and includes the computational building blocks that are necessary to bring machine-learning models into the quantum space. Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence that is now widely used in almost every industry. The technology is capable of crunching through ever-larger datasets to identify patterns and relationships, and eventually discover the best way to calculate an answer to a given problem. Researchers and developers, therefore, want to make sure that the software comes up with the most optimal model possible – which means expanding the amount and improving the quality of the training data that is fed to the machine-learning software.


Agility Prime Researches Electronic Parachute Powered by Machine Learning - Aviation Today

#artificialintelligence

Kentucky-based Aviation Safety Resources is developing ballistic parachutes for use in aircraft ranging from 60 lbs to 12,000 lbs. The Air Force's Agility Prime program awarded a phase I small business technology transfer (STTR) research contract to Jump Aero and Caltech to create an electronic parachute powered by machine learning that would allow the pilot to recalibrate the flight controller in midair in the event of damage, the company announced on April 7. "The electronic parachute is the name for the concept of implementing an adaptive/machine-learned control routine that would be impractical to certify for the traditional controller for use only in an emergency recovery mode -- something that would be switched on by the pilot if there is reason to believe that the baseline flight controller is not properly controlling the aircraft (if, for example, the aircraft has been damaged in midair)," Carl Dietrich, founder and president of Jump Aero Incorporated, told Avionics International. This technology was previously difficult to certify because of the need for deterministic proof of safety within these complex systems. The research was sparked when the Federal Aviation Administration certified an autonomous landing function for use in emergency situations which created a path for the possible certification of electronic parachute technology, according to Jump Aero. The machine-learned neural network can be trained with non-linear behaviors that occur in an aircraft in the presence of substantial failures such those generated by a bird strike, Dietrich said.


Reinforcement Learning for Dynamic Pricing

#artificialintelligence

Limitations on physical interactions throughout the world have reshaped our lives and habits. And while the pandemic has been disrupting the majority of industries, e-commerce has been thriving. This article covers how reinforcement learning for dynamic pricing helps retailers refine their pricing strategies to increase profitability and boost customer engagement and loyalty. In dynamic pricing, we want an agent to set optimal prices based on market conditions. In terms of RL concepts, actions are all of the possible prices and states, market conditions, except for the current price of the product or service.


Evolution of IP protection for artificial intelligence in France

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to transform many aspects of our lives, including our home and health. AI is already widely used in internet searches, and home devices with speech recognition, but in the near future we will see AI become even more widespread. This will have significant repercussions as AI performs many tasks that until now could only be undertaken by humans. AI will remove human intervention from much of the picture. This will particularly affect intellectual property law.


8 Outstanding Papers At ICLR 2021

#artificialintelligence

International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR) recently announced the ICLR 2021 Outstanding Paper Awards winners. It recognised eight papers out of the 860 submitted this year. The papers were evaluated for both technical quality and the potential to create a practical impact. The committee was chaired by Ivan Titov (U. This paper deals with parameterising hypercomplex multiplications using arbitrarily learnable parameters compared with the fully-connected layer counterpart.


Like Us, Deep Learning Networks Prefer a Human Voice

#artificialintelligence

The digital revolution is built on a foundation of invisible 1s and 0s called bits. As decades pass, and more and more of the world's information and knowledge morph into streams of 1s and 0s, the notion that computers prefer to "speak" in binary numbers is rarely questioned. According to new research from Columbia Engineering, this could be about to change. A new study from Mechanical Engineering Professor Hod Lipson and his PhD student Boyuan Chen proves that artificial intelligence systems might actually reach higher levels of performance if they are programmed with sound files of human language rather than with numerical data labels. The researchers discovered that in a side-by-side comparison, a neural network whose "training labels" consisted of sound files reached higher levels of performance in identifying objects in images, compared to another network that had been programmed in a more traditional manner, using simple binary inputs.


How AI and Machine Learning Are Helping In Cybersecurity?

#artificialintelligence

The internet is becoming a vital part of our day-to-day lives and with every second that passes by, a new change takes place over the internet. The internet is no doubt a very useful place but there are risks that are associated with the internet, especially those that affect the security and privacy of the users. With the advent of AI and Machine Learning, every process is automated and this is making things convenient for internet users, especially cybersecurity which has improved drastically due to the advent of AI & Machine Learning. AI & Machine Learning can recognize different patterns that are used in data helping the security systems to learn from them. Cybersecurity is the protection of computers, networks, and other similar devices from damage, information theft, or any other harm.


[N] Call for papers: KDD 2021 Workshop on Bayesian Causal Inference for Real-World Interactive Systems

#artificialintelligence

Increasingly we use machine learning to build interactive systems that learn from past actions and the reward obtained. Theory suggests several possible approaches, such as contextual bandits, reinforcement learning, the do-calculus, or plain old Bayesian decision theory. What are the most theoretically appropriate and practical approaches to doing causal inference for interactive systems? We are particularly interested in case studies of applying machine learning methods to interactive systems that did or did not use Bayesian or likelihood based methods, with a discussion about why this choice was made in terms of practical or theoretical arguments.

I need to retrieve data for Machine Learning training using sample data from event sites for training of a web scraper. Are you sure this is what you want to do? A web scraper is typically rule-based (e.g. But to answer your question, Amazon Mechanical Turk is by far the largest platform if you want to access (mostly unskilled) workforce, as long as you can frame your task into a questionnaire (i.e.
