Andrew Ng launches 'AI for Everyone,' a new Coursera program aimed at business professionals

#artificialintelligence

Andrew Ng, a computer scientist who led Google's AI division, Google Brain, and formerly served as vice president and chief scientist at Baidu, is a veritable celebrity in the artificial intelligence (AI) industry. After leaving Baidu, he debuted an online curriculum of classes centered around machine learning -- Deeplearning.ai Ng was the keynote speaker at the AI Frontiers Conference in November 2017, and this year unveiled the AI Fund, a $175 million incubator that backs small teams of experts looking to solve key problems using machine learning. Oh, and he's also chairman of AI cognitive behavioral therapy startup Woebot; sits on the board of driverless car company Drive.ai; Yet somehow, he found time to put together a new online training course -- "AI for Everyone" -- that seeks to demystify AI for business executives.



How to Speed Up Deep Learning Inference Using TensorRT NVIDIA Developer Blog

#artificialintelligence

Welcome to this introduction to TensorRT, our platform for deep learning inference. You will learn how to deploy a deep learning application onto a GPU, increasing throughput and reducing latency during inference. TensorRT provides APIs and parsers to import trained models from all major deep learning frameworks. It then generates optimized runtime engines deployable in the datacenter as well as in automotive and embedded environments. Applications deployed on GPUs with TensorRT perform up to 40x faster than CPU-only platforms. This tutorial uses a C example to walk you through importing an ONNX model into TensorRT, applying optimizations, and generating a high-performance runtime engine for the datacenter environment.


Chapter 1: Bird's Eye View of Applied Machine Learning - Data Science Primer

#artificialintelligence

Welcome to our 7-part mini-course on data science and applied machine learning! Over these 7 chapters, our goal is to provide you with an end-to-end blueprint for applied machine learning, while keeping this as actionable and succinct as possible. With that, let's get started with a bird's eye view of the machine learning workflow. One really cool (optional) challenge you can do in the next hour is training your first machine learning model! That's right, we've put together a complete step-by-step tutorial for training a model that can predict wine quality.

A Gentle Introduction to LSTM Autoencoders

#artificialintelligence

An LSTM Autoencoder is an implementation of an autoencoder for sequence data using an Encoder-Decoder LSTM architecture. Once fit, the encoder part of the model can be used to encode or compress sequence data that in turn may be used in data visualizations or as a feature vector input to a supervised learning model. In this post, you will discover the LSTM Autoencoder model and how to implement it in Python using Keras. A Gentle Introduction to LSTM Autoencoders Photo by Ken Lund, some rights reserved. An autoencoder is a neural network model that seeks to learn a compressed representation of an input.
