Optimizing Machine Learning with TensorFlow

#artificialintelligence

In our webinar "Optimizing Machine Learning with TensorFlow" we gave an overview of some of the impressive optimizations Intel has made to TensorFlow when using their hardware. You can find a link to the archived video here. During the webinar, Mohammad Ashraf Bhuiyan, Senior Software Engineer in Intel's Artificial Intelligence Group, and myself spoke about some of the common use cases that require optimization as well as benchmarks demonstrating order-of-magnitude speed improvements when running on Intel hardware. TensorFlow, Google's library for machine learning (ML), has become the most popular machine learning library in a fast-growing ecosystem. This library has over 77k stars on GitHub and is widely used in a growing number of business critical applications.


Essentials of Machine Learning Algorithms (with Python and R Codes)

Google's self-driving cars and robots get a lot of press, but the company's real future is in machine learning, the technology that enables computers to get smarter and more personal. We are probably living in the most defining period of human history. The period when computing moved from large mainframes to PCs to cloud. But what makes it defining is not what has happened, but what is coming our way in years to come. What makes this period exciting for some one like me is the democratization of the tools and techniques, which followed the boost in computing.


Handling Character Data for Machine Learning - DZone AI

@machinelearnbot

Creating machine learning projects with numerical attributes is easy. Most of the open-source data available for building ML models has numerical attributes. However, when we deal with enterprise data, the case is a bit different. Character or string data dominate the dataset in enterprises, making it hard to create a very accurate machine learning model. We have to clean messy strings, pull strings apart, and extract useful strings embedded in a text to bring it into a form that can be used in a machine learning pipeline.


Deep Dive Into Machine Learning - DZone AI

We now live in an age where machine learning is a hot topic. Machines can learn on their own without human intervention, and at the same time, it can bring humans closer to machines by enabling humans to "teach" machines. Machine learning has been around for several decades, but only recently have we been able to take advantage of this technology thanks to the recent advancements made in computing power. Now, let's look at a quick timeline of machine learning: Machine learning (ML) deals with systems and algorithms focused on identifying patterns within data and making predictions by finding hidden patterns in data. It is worth mentioning here that machine learning falls under the artificial intelligence (AI) umbrella, which in turn intersects with the broader fields of data mining and knowledge discovery.


This AI can spot art forgeries by looking at one brushstroke

#artificialintelligence

Detecting art forgeries is hard and expensive. Art historians might bring a suspect work into a lab for infrared spectroscopy, radiometric dating, gas chromatography, or a combination of such tests. AI, it turns out, doesn't need all that: it can spot a fake just by looking at the strokes used to compose a piece. In a new paper, researchers from Rutgers University and the Atelier for Restoration & Research of Paintings in the Netherlands document how their system broke down almost 300 line drawings by Picasso, Matisse, Modigliani, and other famous artists into 80,000 individual strokes. Then a deep recurrent neural network (RNN) learned what features in the strokes were important to identify the artist.

Machine Learning Meets IC Design

Machine Learning (ML) is one of the hot buzzwords these days, but even though EDA deals with big-data types of issues it has not made much progress incorporating ML techniques into EDA tools. Many EDA problems and solutions are statistical in nature, which would suggest a natural fit. So why is it so slow to adopt machine learning technology, while other technology areas such as vision recognition and search have embraced it so easily? "You can smell a machine learning problem," said Jeff Dyck, vice president of technical operation for Solido Design Automation. "We have a ton of data, but which methods can we apply to solve the problems?


Why Deep Learning is Radically Different From Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

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.

– Big data helps to make strategy for future and understand user behaviors. In 1959, Arther Samuel gave very simple definition of Machine Learning as "a Field of study that gives computer the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed". Now almost after 58 years from then we still have not progressed much beyond this definition if we compare the progress we made in other areas from same time. Machine Learning and Deep Learning) is not so new, have you heard of accepting selfie as authentication for your shopping bill payment, Siri on your iPhone etc. A Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) is a process that manifests these characteristics.
