5 cheap online courses that could help you land a job in AI

Mashable

These days, pundits galore are proselytizing about the Future of Work. Depending on who you ask, the robots may or may not be taking over, leaving us mere humans pondering how work fits into our lives and whether we're going to be eventually rendered obsolete. Just look at the stark contrast in tone between these two headlines: the Wall Street Journal's White-Collar Robots Are Coming For Jobs versus Wired's Chill: Robots Won't Take All Our Jobs. Who should we *really* believe?! The truth is there isn't one easy answer.


Artificial Intelligence : from Research to Application ; the Upper-Rhine Artificial Intelligence Symposium (UR-AI 2019)

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

The TriRhenaTech alliance universities and their partners presented their competences in the field of artificial intelligence and their cross-border cooperations with the industry at the tri-national conference 'Artificial Intelligence : from Research to Application' on March 13th, 2019 in Offenburg. The TriRhenaTech alliance is a network of universities in the Upper Rhine Trinational Metropolitan Region comprising of the German universities of applied sciences in Furtwangen, Kaiserslautern, Karlsruhe, and Offenburg, the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Loerrach, the French university network Alsace Tech (comprised of 14 'grandes \'ecoles' in the fields of engineering, architecture and management) and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. The alliance's common goal is to reinforce the transfer of knowledge, research, and technology, as well as the cross-border mobility of students.


Google adds AI fairness lessons to its machine learning crash course

#artificialintelligence

Bias in AI is a truly worrisome issue. We've seen algorithms that are racist, sexist, and every other negative -ist you can think of. Even more troubling: if we eliminate all the human bias in our training data, an AI might still learn to be bigoted all on its own. That's a concern researchers across the world are grappling with as we move toward a future in which AI is everywhere. One bright spot: Google, a leader in AI tech, just added an AI fairness module to its crash course on machine learning.


Exercises in amazement: Discovering deep learning

MIT News

It was standing-room only in the Stata Center's Kirsch Auditorium when some 300 attendees showed up for opening lectures for MIT's intensive, student-designed course 6.S191 (Introduction to Deep Learning). Nathan Rebello, a first-year graduate student in chemical engineering, was among those who were excited about the class, coordinated by Alexander Amini '17 and Ava Soleimany '16 during MIT's Independent Activities Period (IAP) in January. "I hope to go into either industry or academia and to apply deep learning techniques for the design of new materials," Rebello says. He signed up for 6.S191 to learn more about deep learning with the intention of applying it to the design of bio-inspired polymeric materials, adding: "I also wanted to network with students and faculty to explore their ways of thinking on this topic." There were plenty of people available for networking.


Machine Learning Basics: Building a Regression model in R

#artificialintelligence

The course "Machine Learning Basics: Building a Regression model in R" teaches you all the steps of creating a Linear Regression model, which is the most popular Machine Learning model, to solve business problems. Machine Learning is a field of computer science which gives the computer the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. It is a branch of artificial intelligence based on the idea that systems can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention. What is the Linear regression technique of Machine learning? Linear Regression is a simple machine learning model for regression problems, i.e., when the target variable is a real value.

Machine Learning - complete course notes

#artificialintelligence

Originally written as a way for me personally to help solidify and document the concepts, these notes have grown into a reasonably complete block of reference material spanning the course in its entirety in just over 40 000 words and a lot of diagrams! The target audience was originally me, but more broadly, can be someone familiar with programming although no assumption regarding statistics, calculus or linear algebra is made. We go from the very introduction of machine learning to neural networks, recommender systems and even pipeline design. The one thing I will say is that a lot of the later topics build on those of earlier sections, so it's generally advisable to work through in chronological order.
