GCP services, including the recently launched Cloud IoT Core provides a robust computing platform that takes advantage of Google's end-to-end security model. Device Management: To handle secure device management and communications, Cloud IoT Core makes it easy for you to securely connect your globally distributed devices to GCP and centrally manage them. Applications: Compute Engine, Container Engine and App Engine all provide computing components for a connected vehicle platform. Predictive Models: TensorFlow and Cloud Machine Learning Engine provide a sophisticated modeling framework and scalable execution environment.
Google DeepMind announced their research project with Moorfields Eye Hospital in London aimed at the early detection of preventable eye disease (e.g. I've tracked close to a dozen new startups founded in the last 12 months applying deep learning to medical imaging, such as BayLabs, Imagia, MD.ai, AvalonAI, Behold.ai, Apple plays feature catch-up with Google, namely on its photo tagging/search capabilities and predictive keyboard, but takes a view that privacy should come first. Following from this point, the New York Times features a piece on how algorithms perpetuate intrinsic biases in their training data, drawing on examples from the police force, image classification tasks and gender discrimination. Facebook's Language Technology team, which forms part of Applied ML, was the subject of a recent expose by Forbes diving into its various initiatives.
Besides supporting internal customers in truck design and engineering, the analytics group uses advanced statistics and machine learning techniques to benefit its external customers. The model predicts failures for more than 40,000 combinations of diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) by make, model and year of vehicle. When alerts are found for International trucks, its customer service group can address the problem directly with the fleet customer. The team used the technique to analyze the usage patterns of 100,000 vehicles by engine operating hours, miles, idling time, etc.
When he turned two, I unwisely thought he would enjoy a monster truck rally and purchased tickets, imagining father and son duo making great memories together. Prototype approaches can be created relatively quickly, requiring publishable mathematics to prove convergence, pounded home with surprisingly good results. This is why I am excited about this Hessian-free approach, because although it is currently not mainstream, and it lacks the rock star status of stochastic gradient descent (SGD) approaches, it has the potential to save the user significant user processing time. I personally love algorithm development and enjoy spending my waking hours seeking to make algorithms faster and more robust.
