HPE introduces new set of artificial intelligence platforms and services - ET CIO


Bengaluru: Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced new purpose-built platforms and services capabilities to help companies simplify the adoption of Artificial Intelligence, with an initial focus on a key subset of AI known as deep learning. Inspired by the human brain, deep learning is typically implemented for challenging tasks such as image and facial recognition, image classification and voice recognition. To take advantage of deep learning, enterprises need a high performance compute infrastructure to build and train learning models that can manage large volumes of data to recognize patterns in audio, images, videos, text and sensor data. Many organizations lack several integral requirements to implement deep learning, including expertise and resources; sophisticated and tailored hardware and software infrastructure; and the integration capabilities required to assimilate different pieces of hardware and software to scale AI systems. To help customers overcome these challenges and realize the potential of AI, HPE is announcing the following offerings: • HPE's Rapid Software Development for AI: HPE introduced an integrated hardware and software solution, purpose-built for high performance computing and deep learning applications.

Drug Discovery AI to Scour a Universe of Molecules for Wonder Drugs


On a dark night, away from city lights, the stars of the Milky Way can seem uncountable. Yet from any given location no more than 4,500 are visible to the naked eye. Meanwhile, our galaxy has 100–400 billion stars, and there are even more galaxies in the universe. The numbers of the night sky are humbling. And they give us a deep perspective…on drugs.



This is the code for my article "Coloring B&W portraits with neural networks" Earlier this year, Amir Avni used neural networks to troll the subreddit /r/Colorization - a community where people colorize historical black and white images manually using Photoshop. They were astonished with Amir's deep learning bot - what could take up to a month of manual labour could now be done in just a few seconds. I was fascinated by Amir's neural network, so I reproduced it and documented the process. Read the article to understand the context of the code. If you are new to FloydHub, do their 2-min installation, check my 5-min video tutorial or my step-to-step guide - it's the best (and easiest) way to train deep learning models on cloud GPUs.

The Race to Power AI's Silicon Brains

MIT Technology Review

Nigel Toon, the cofounder and CEO of Graphcore, a semiconductor startup based in the U.K., recalls that only a couple of years ago many venture capitalists viewed the idea of investing in semiconductor chips as something of joke. "You'd take an idea to a meeting," he says, "and many of the partners would roll about on the floor laughing." Now some chip entrepreneurs are getting a very different reception. Instead of rolling on the floor, investors are rolling out their checkbooks. Venture capitalists have good reason to be wary of silicon, even though it gave Silicon Valley its name.



I am having a hard time making a machine suffer. Strengthening learning of a machine by giving it negative feedback is tricky. But then it is debatable if all humans learn alike from rewards/punishments:\ And that is why we stay enamored by kids. How do they learn what they learn? They never knew the language before; they never knew any of the concepts of this world before.

System uses 'deep learning' to detect cracks in nuclear reactors - Purdue University


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – A system under development at Purdue University uses artificial intelligence to detect cracks captured in videos of nuclear reactors and represents a future inspection technology to help reduce accidents and maintenance costs. "Regular inspection of nuclear power plant components is important to guarantee safe operations," said Mohammad R. Jahanshahi, an assistant professor in Purdue's Lyles School of Civil Engineering. "However, current practice is time-consuming, tedious, and subjective and involves human technicians reviewing inspection videos to identify cracks on reactors." Complicating the inspection process is that nuclear reactors are submerged in water to maintain cooling. Consequently, direct manual inspection of a reactor's components is not feasible due to high temperatures and radiation hazards.

Top 10 Videos on Deep Learning in Python


This'Top 10' list has been created on the basis of best content, and not exactly the number of views. To help you choose an appropriate framework, we first start with a video that compares few of the popular Python DL libraries. I have included the highlights and my views on the pros and cons of each of these 10 items, so you can choose one that best suits your needs. I have saved the best for last- the most comprehensive yet free YouTube course on DL . Before I actually list the best DL in Python videos, it is important that one understands the differences between the 5 most popular deep learning frameworks -SciKit Learn, TensorFlow, Theano, Keras, and Caffe.

What is a CapsNet or Capsule Network? – Hacker Noon


What is a Capsule Network? Is CapsNet better than a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN)? In this article I will talk about all the above questions about CapsNet or Capsule Network released by Hinton. There is an expectation from you as a reader. You need to be aware of CNNs.

Why Deep Learning is Radically Different From Machine Learning


There is a lot of confusion these days about Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL). There certainly is a massive uptick of articles about AI being a competitive game changer and that enterprises should begin to seriously explore the opportunities. The distinction between AI, ML and DL are very clear to practitioners in these fields. AI is the all encompassing umbrella that covers everything from Good Old Fashion AI (GOFAI) all the way to connectionist architectures like Deep Learning. ML is a sub-field of AI that covers anything that has to do with the study of learning algorithms by training with data.
