WTF is machine learning?

#artificialintelligence

While not well understood, neural networks, deep learning, and reinforcement learning are all machine learning. Each layer of a deep learning model lets the computer identify another level of abstraction of the same object. Reinforcement learning, takes ideas from game theory, and includes a mechanism to assist learning through rewards. Researchers refer to this challenge as the black box problem of machine learning.


Google's Calico hires computing chief to add machine learning

#artificialintelligence

The hire marks the start of the Alphabet ( GOOG)-owned, Art Levinson-helmed biotech's drive to build out a computational biology and machine learning team. Calico will tap into that expertise--and that of the machine learning team it has tasked Koller with building--to advance its drive to understand aging and, in doing so, enable people to live longer, healthier lives. "Daphne and her team will work in close collaboration with the basic and translational scientists at Calico and partner with other machine learning experts, including the team at Google, to derive novel insights and effective interventions," Calico R&D President Hal Barron said. The plan now is to add more staff to work with Koller, including a machine learning engineer and someone capable of developing algorithms to analyze biological images and videos.
