NASA's Perseverance rover carried a family portrait of its robotic siblings to Mars


Like any good piece of high-tech hardware, NASA's Perseverance rover features an Easter egg hidden in plain sight. Since landing on Mars on February 18th, NASA has been sharing thousands of photos captured by the rover. And if you look close enough, as Space did, you'll catch a decal bolted to the top of its body. That decal depicts Perseverance and every single other NASA rover to successfully make it to the surface of Mars. This plaque I carry pays tribute to those who've gone before me, and to new possibilities ahead.

An Introduction to Deep Reinforcement Learning and its Significance - Fingent Technology


RL algorithms can be used to solve tasks where automation is required. However actual implementation is easier said than done. You can ease your pain by using TF-Agents, a flexible library for TensorFlow to build reinforcement learning models. TF-Agents makes it easy to use reinforced learning for TensorFlow. TF-Agents enables newbies to learn RL using Colabs, documentation, and examples as well as researchers who want to build new RL algorithms.

3 kinds of bias in AI models -- and how we can address them


Automated decision-making tools are becoming increasingly ubiquitous in our world. As ML models become more widely adopted, special care and expertise are needed to ensure that artificial intelligence (AI) improves the bottom line fairly. ML models should target and eliminate biases rather than exacerbate discrimination. But in order to build fair AI models, we must first build better methods to identify the root causes of bias in AI. We must understand how a biased AI model learns a biased relationship between its inputs and outputs.

Five Tips For Life Sciences Companies To Protect Their AI Technologies


Artificial intelligence (AI) has revolutionized many technology areas. As a few examples, it has already been instrumental in improving and enabling voice recognition algorithms, digital assistants, advertisement recommendation engines and financial trading applications.[1] Significant investment is being made for further development of this promising new technology, with R&D spending on AI predicted to reach $57.6 billion by the end of 2021.[2] Along with these R&D efforts, companies are also trying to protect and monetize their AI inventions, in some cases opting to seek patent protection. From 2002 to 2018, the number of AI patent applications filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) more than doubled, from 30,000 to 60,000.[3] These R&D efforts are no longer limited to software companies.

How Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning will further advance Ed-tech sector?


Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are the current hot assets of technology and disrupting almost all possible domains and sectors, including education. However, not many of us are aware that much of AI's theoretical and technological underpinning dates back to nearly seven decades ago, thanks to scientists such as Alan Turing, Marvin Minsky, and John McCarthy. In simple terms, AI is a sequence of technologies that power machines to function with higher intelligence levels, almost emulating human capabilities. As matter of fact, Artificial Intelligence has had a profound impact on the nature of services within the education sector. With respect to developing economies, the population's education and literacy levels play a significant role in the overall transition to an advanced economy.

Artificial Intelligence in Cybersecurity


Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly permeating the enterprise security ecosystem, bringing a wide range of advanced capabilities to what is quickly becoming a key aspect of a successful digital business model. But while it might be tempting to just throw AI at the digital wall to see where it sticks, wiser business leaders are taking the time to ascertain where it can be used most effectively and how it must blend with normal operations so as not to hamper overall performance. According to Statista, the most popular security applications for AI involve protecting the network, endpoints and the data itself. Upwards of 75 percent of IT executives surveyed in 2019 report networking as the top area of concern, followed by 71 percent for data security and 68 percent for endpoints.

AI is killing choice and chance – which means changing what it means to be human


The history of humans' use of technology has always been a history of coevolution. Philosophers from Rousseau to Heidegger to Carl Schmitt have argued that technology is never a neutral tool for achieving human ends. Technological innovations -- from the most rudimentary to the most sophisticated -- reshape people as they use these innovations to control their environment. Artificial intelligence is a new and powerful tool, and it, too, is altering humanity. Writing and, later, the printing press made it possible to carefully record history and easily disseminate knowledge, but it eliminated centuries-old traditions of oral storytelling.

5 Books That Will Teach You the Math Behind Machine Learning


After the explosive growth of open source machine learning and deep learning frameworks, the field is more accessible than ever. Thanks to this, it went from a tool for researchers to a widely adopted and used method, fueling the insane growth of technology we experience now. Understanding how the algorithms really work can give you a huge advantage in designing, developing and debugging machine learning systems. Due to its mathematical nature, this task can seem daunting for many. However, this does not have to be the way.
