How do Neural Networks really work? - Analytics Vidhya


Neural networks form the core of deep learning, a subset of machine learning that I introduced in my previous article. People exposed to artificial intelligence generally have a good high-level idea of how a neural network works -- data is passed from one layer of the neural network to the next, and this data is propagated from the topmost layer to the bottom layer until, somehow, the algorithm outputs the prediction on whether an image is that of a chihuahua or a muffin. Seems like magic, isn't it? Surprisingly, neural networks for a computer vision model can be understood using high school math. It just requires the correct explanation in the simplest manner for everyone to understand how neural networks work under the hood.

4 Reasons Your Deal Forecasts Probably Aren't Accurate


Sales and deal forecasting are vital parts of any business's planning, but it is also hard to argue that there are major issues with how we prepare for the future. Based on a number of sources, the level of inaccuracy with current tools is astounding. A study found that only 28.1% of sales teams were within a 5% deviation of their forecast, and 47% of 90-day predictions were off by a margin of more than half -- and sales reps overestimated by an average $91,000 and underestimated by only $47,000. CSO Insights cites that 60% of forecast deals do not close, and even organizations that formally track and review their processes still lose 40% of predicted closures. A SiriusDecisions' analysis pegged that "79 percent of sales organizations miss their sales forecast by more than 10 percent", and in another analysis, an asset manager says he just cuts 20% off the top of a forecast since he doesn't think they're reliable.

Fundamentals in Neural Networks


Beginner level audience that intends to obtain in-depth overview of Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, and three major types neural networks: Artificial Neural Networks, Convolutional Neural Networks, and Recurrent Neural Networks. Deep learning (also known as deep structured learning) is part of a broader family of machine learning methods based on artificial neural networks with representation learning. Learning can be supervised, semi-supervised or unsupervised. Deep-learning architectures such as deep neural networks, deep belief networks, deep reinforcement learning, recurrent neural networks and convolutional neural networks have been applied to fields including computer vision, speech recognition, natural language processing, machine translation, bioinformatics, drug design, medical image analysis, material inspection and board game programs, where they have produced results comparable to and in some cases surpassing human expert performance. This course covers the following three sections: (1) Neural Networks, (2) Convolutional Neural Networks, and (3) Recurrent Neural Networks.

Working from home increases your risk of making mistakes, scientists say

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Working from home increases your risk of making mistakes, a study examining the quality of chess play has found. The standard was significantly worse when players competed online instead of face to face, researchers discovered, suggesting that not being in the office is harmful to productivity. They monitored nearly 215,000 chess moves made by players during in-person and digital tournaments, checking them against what was the best play by using artificial intelligence. Such was the impact on performance when playing remotely, it would have taken Norwegian grandmaster Magnus Carlsen, the world's top-rated player, to the same rating as the current 20th-best player, according to Dainis Zegners from Rotterdam School of Management, one of the study's co-authors. He said the research showed that remote working could hinder people's ability to carry out mentally-intense tasks while alone.
