Futurist Ray Kurzweil Isn't Worried About Technology Stealing Your Job

#artificialintelligence

In this case, Musk says he fears artificial intelligence will lead to World War III because nations will compete for A.I. Have you tried to build models for predicting politics or world events? Things that happened in the 20th century like World War I, World War II, the Cold War, and the Great Depression had no effect on these very smooth trajectories for technology. We have already eliminated all jobs several times in human history.

Using network G, identify the people in the network with missing values for the node attribute ManagementSalary and predict whether or not these individuals are receiving a managment position salary. Using the trained classifier, return a series with the data being the probability of receiving managment salary, and the index being the node id (from the test dataset). The next figure shows the ROC curve to compare the performances (AUC) of the classifiers on the validation dataset.

Watson Machine Learning Sample for Developers - DZone AI

#artificialintelligence

Last month, IBM announced the general availability of Watson Machine Learning, which can be used by data scientists to create models and used by developers to run predictions from their applications. There are different ways for data scientists to create models with Watson Machine Learning. Below the label, the list of features like age and ticket class is specified. To learn more about Watson Machine Learning, open IBM Data Science Experience and give it a try.


[FoR&AI] The Seven Deadly Sins of Predicting the Future of AI – Rodney Brooks

#artificialintelligence

Why are people making mistakes in predictions about Artificial Intelligence and robotics, so that Oren Etzioni, I, and others, need to spend time pushing back on them? Below I outline seven ways of thinking that lead to mistaken predictions about robotics and Artificial Intelligence. Research on AGI is an attempt to distinguish a thinking entity from current day AI technology such as Machine Learning. Then, with an unending Moore's law mixed in making computers faster and faster, Artificial Intelligence will take off by itself, and, as in speculative physics going through the singularity of a black hole, we have no idea what things will be like on the other side.


Putting Machine Learning in Production

Concretely we can write these coefficients in the server configuration files. So if you choose to code the preprocessing part in the server side too, note that every little change you make in the training should be duplicated in the server -- meaning a new release for both sides.


The current state of applied data science

#artificialintelligence

Moreover, since we're dealing mainly with supervised learning, it's no surprise that lack of training data remains the primary bottleneck in machine learning projects. There are some good research projects and tools for quickly creating large training data sets (or augmenting existing ones). Preliminary work on generative models (by deep learning researchers) have produced promising results in unsupervised learning in computer vision and other areas. With the recent rise of deep learning, I'm seeing companies use tools that explain how models produce their predictions and tools that can explain where a model comes from by tracing predictions from the learning algorithm and training data.

US military creating microchips for killer robots

But rising manufacturing costs and the limitations of existing chip technologies mean that new avenues of research are needed for this pace of growth to continue in the future. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Electronics Resurgence Initiative's will create six new programs over the next four years. Their research hopes to ensure the predictions made by Moore's law, that computing power would double roughly every two years, will continue In 1965, Moore famously predicted that the transistor-count of integrated circuits would double every year or two while the cost per transistor would decrease. But rising manufacturing costs and the limitations of existing chip technologies mean that new avenues of research are needed for this pace of growth to continue in the future.


Artificial Intelligence: The Gap Between Promise and Practice

#artificialintelligence

Yet a newly published report by MIT Sloan Management Review and The Boston Consulting Group shows there is an enormous gap between these expectations and the current reality for most organizations: Whereas 85 percent of 3,000 executives polled expect AI to result in competitive advantage within five years, only 5 percent engage in substantial AI-centric activities and only 20 percent use any AI all. What then is the nature and scope of the organizational intelligence required to fully exploit the potential of artificial intelligence? Current rules of thumb--"machine learning can do whatever it takes humans less than a second to do"; "machines can be used for prediction, humans for judgment"; "machines make calculations, humans produce interpretations"--are both simplistic and factually wrong. And doing that will certainly require advances in understanding organizational intelligence, as much as ones in algorithmic efficiency.


Using machine learning and AI to add value to business

#artificialintelligence

As deep learning delivers superior data fusion capabilities over other ML approaches, Gartner predicts that by 2019, deep learning will be a critical driver for best-in-class performance for demand, fraud and failure predictions. "If one of your teams possesses a good understanding of data, has business domain expertise and can interpret outputs, it is ready to start ML experiments," said Linden. A combination of data scientists' current experience and skills with new ML capabilities will be required for successful ML and AI adoption. "What's hard for people is easy for ML, and what's hard for ML is easy for people," concluded Linden.
