This is another specialization program offered by Coursera. This specialization program is for both computer science professionals and healthcare professionals. In this specialization program, you will learn how to identify the healthcare professional's problems that can be solved by machine learning. You will also learn the fundamentals of the U.S. healthcare system, the framework for successful and ethical medical data mining, the fundamentals of machine learning as it applies to medicine and healthcare, and much more. This specialization program has 5 courses. Let's see the details of the courses-
I became Editor-in-Chief of Communications of the ACM (CACM) to make the magazine again the forum where the computer science community shares ("communicates") its most important results. Whether you compute with bits or qubits, write software or proofs, develop algorithms or neural networks, teach or take classes, work in industry or academia, live in the U.S. or elsewhere, believe tech is the way forward or not, CACM should be the place to share your best work with our broad, diverse, and international community. Early in my career, CACM played this role. Everyone in the field read the magazine, and the CS community shared its most important results there. To get a sense, look at the 1983 CACM 25th Anniversary issue (https://dl.acm.org/toc/cacm/1983/26/1), which reprinted articles from the magazine's early years.
In a press release on Tuesday, Governor Kathy Hochul announced that the University at Albany will become the home of a new artificial intelligence supercomputing initiative. The $200 million project will turn the building which was formerly Albany High School into an engineering college capable of housing a supercomputer that can reach a quintillion computations per second. It would be the first university-based supercomputer capable of reaching that kind of production. In the press release, Governor Hochul said "My administration is steadfast in its commitment to transform SUNY into a globally renowned, 21st century education leader. This funding will help drive economic revenue by attracting companies to New York's emerging advanced research centers, creating jobs and strengthening communities for decades to come."
In this beginner-friendly program, you will learn the fundamentals of machine learning and how to use these techniques to build real-world AI applications. This Specialization is taught by Andrew Ng, an AI visionary who has led critical research at Stanford University and groundbreaking work at Google Brain, Baidu, and Landing.AI to advance the AI field. This 3-course Specialization is an updated and expanded version of Andrew's pioneering Machine Learning course, rated 4.9 out of 5 and taken by over 4.8 million learners since it launched in 2012. It provides a broad introduction to modern machine learning, including supervised learning (multiple linear regression, logistic regression, neural networks, and decision trees), unsupervised learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction, recommender systems), and some of the best practices used in Silicon Valley for artificial intelligence and machine learning innovation (evaluating and tuning models, taking a data-centric approach to improving performance, and more.) By the end of this Specialization, you will have mastered key concepts and gained the practical know-how to quickly and powerfully apply machine learning to challenging real-world problems.
Specifically, Huerta and his then graduate student Daniel George pioneered the use of so-called convolutional neural networks (CNNs), which are a type of deep-learning algorithm, to detect and decipher gravitational-wave signals in real time. Roughly speaking, training or teaching a deep-learning system involves feeding it data that are already categorized--say, images of galaxies obscured by lots of noise--and getting the network to identify the patterns in the data correctly. After their initial success with CNNs, Huerta and George, along with Huerta's graduate student Hongyu Shen, scaled up this effort, designing deep-learning algorithms that were trained on supercomputers using millions of simulated signatures of gravitational waves mixed in with noise derived from previous observing runs of Advanced LIGO--an upgrade to LIGO completed in 2015. For instance, Adam Rebei, a high school student in Huerta's group, showed in a recent study that deep learning can identify the complex gravitational-wave signals produced by the merger of black holes in eccentric orbits--something LIGO's traditional algorithms cannot do in real time. In a preprint paper last September, Nicholas Choma of New York University and his colleagues reported the development of a special type of deep-learning algorithm called a graph neural network, whose connections and architecture take advantage of the spatial geometry of the sensors in the ice and the fact that only a few sensors see the light from any given muon track.
Data analysing, irrespective of its form, can be extremely chaotic and challenging. This is where feature engineering steps in. A method to ease data analysis, feature engineering simplifies data reading for machine learning models. A feature or variable is nothing but the numerical representation of all kinds of data– structured and unstructured. Feature engineering is a vital part of the process of predictive modelling.
Andrew Ng's DeepLearning.AI, in partnership with Stanford Online, recently announced a new Machine Learning Specialisation course on Coursera. This beginner-friendly program will teach you the fundamentals of machine learning and how to use these techniques to build real-world AI applications. The 3-course program is a new version of Ng's pioneering machine learning course, taken by over 4.8 million learners since 2012. The program provides a broad introduction to modern machine learning, including supervised learning (multiple linear regression, logistic regression, neural networks, and decision trees), unsupervised learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction, recommender systems), and some of the best practices used in Silicon Valley for artificial intelligence and machine learning innovation. The new Machine Learning Specialization by @DeepLearningAI_ & @StanfordOnline is now available on @Coursera!
Artificial intelligence (AI) has already transformed our lives, and it keeps altering different aspects of daily life. From driving autonomous vehicles to translating languages in real time, AI technologies can considerably improve the efficiency of every process in our diverse workplaces. That is why the Data Science Program at the College of Charleston is offering a four-day workshop for students to learn how AI can be integrated into different fields of science and technology. Sponsored by the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness, the Applications of Artificial Intelligence workshop was designed to teach about artificial intelligence through instructional and hands-on training activities. Workshop components include AI in Music and Art, AI in Natural Language Processing, AI in Smart Cities and Autonomous Vehicles, AI in Environmental Informatics, AI in Education and AI at Home.
With the rise of AI, there has been an increased focus on global education. As the world becomes more interconnected, it is important for students to be able to learn about different cultures and perspectives. AI can help to provide students with a more comprehensive education by providing access to a wealth of information from around the world. In addition, it can help to customize learning experiences to individual students, making sure that each student receives the best possible education. As AI continues to evolve, it will likely have an even greater impact on education, making it more accessible and effective than ever before.
