CBMM Panel Discussion: Is the theory of Deep Learning relevant to applications?

#artificialintelligence

Abstract: Deep Learning has enjoyed an impressive growth over the past few years in fields ranging from visual recognition to natural language processing. Improvements in these areas have been fundamental to the development of self-driving cars, machine translation, and healthcare applications. This progress has arguably been made possible by a combination of increases in computing power and clever heuristics, raising puzzling questions that lack full theoretical understanding. Here, we will discuss the relationship between the theory behind deep learning and its application. This panel discussion will be hosted remotely via Zoom.


Lost in Translation: How Artificial Intelligence is Breaking the Language Barrier - DefinedCrowd

#artificialintelligence

Human interaction with machines has experienced a great leap forward in recent years, largely driven by artificial intelligence (AI). From smart homes to self-driving cars, AI has become a seamless part of our daily lives. Voice interactions play a key role in many of these technological advances, most notably in language translation. Here, AI enables instant translation across a number of mediums: text, voice, images and even street signs. The technology works by recognizing individual words, then leveraging similarities in how various languages express the relationships between those words.


The Next Generation Of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

It has only been 8 years since the modern era of deep learning began at the 2012 ImageNet competition. Progress in the field since then has been breathtaking and relentless. If anything, this breakneck pace is only accelerating. Five years from now, the field of AI will look very different than it does today. Methods that are currently considered cutting-edge will have become outdated; methods that today are nascent or on the fringes will be mainstream.


Ten Research Challenge Areas in Data Science · Harvard Data Science Review

#artificialintelligence

To drive progress in the field of data science, we propose 10 challenge areas for the research community to pursue. Since data science is broad, with methods drawing from computer science, statistics, and other disciplines, and with applications appearing in all sectors, these challenge areas speak to the breadth of issues spanning science, technology, and society. We preface our enumeration with meta-questions about whether data science is a discipline. We then describe each of the 10 challenge areas. The goal of this article is to start a discussion on what could constitute a basis for a research agenda in data science, while recognizing that the field of data science is still evolving. Although data science builds on knowledge from computer science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, and other disciplines, data science is a unique field with many mysteries to unlock: fundamental scientific questions and pressing problems of societal importance.


Facebook PyText is an Open Source Framework for Rapid NLP Experimentation

#artificialintelligence

I recently started a new newsletter focus on AI education. TheSequence is a no-BS( meaning no hype, no news etc) AI-focused newsletter that takes 5 minutes to read. The goal is to keep you up to date with machine learning projects, research papers and concepts. Natural language processing(NLP) has become the best known discipline in the deep learning space in rencet years. Part of that popularity have brought together an explosion of tools and frameworks such as Google Cloud, Azure LUIS, AWS Lex or Watson Assistant, NLP that have enable the implementation of simple NLP applications without requiring any deep learning knowledge.


An Introduction to AI

#artificialintelligence

I am Imtiaz Adam, and this article is an introduction to AI key terminologies and methodologies on behalf of myself and DLS (www.dls.ltd). This article has been updated in September 2020 to take into account advances in the field of AI with techniques such as NeuroSymbolic AI, Neuroevolution and Federated Learning. AI deals with the area of developing computing systems which are capable of performing tasks that humans are very good at, for example recognising objects, recognising and making sense of speech, and decision making in a constrained environment. Narrow AI: the field of AI where the machine is designed to perform a single task and the machine gets very good at performing that particular task. However, once the machine is trained, it does not generalise to unseen domains. This is the form of AI that we have today, for example Google Translate.


10 Exciting Webinars & Workshops In Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

However, one of the ways professionals are keeping up their relevance in their organisations as well as in the industry is by upskilling and learning the latest tools and technologies of this evolving field. Webinars and workshops have always been an excellent way for professionals and enthusiasts to keep themselves updated with the latest trends and technologies. For attendees, these webinars and workshops are not only an easy way to know and train themselves on the latest tools and technologies but also allows them to hear from the best minds of the industry on relevant topics. In fact, for a few years now, large tech companies have been conducting free webinars and workshops, which will not only boosts the community and users at large but also acts as a great marketing tool for advertising their solutions and services. With machine learning being explored in various industries, including healthcare, eCommerce, finance and retail, the possibilities are endless.


Why Is Python Used for AI(Artificial Intelligence) & Machine Learning - eSparkBiz

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have been making our lives easier for quite some time. Today, we're going to talk about Python For AI & Machine Learning. Though the community keeps discussing the safety of its development, at the same time it is working relentlessly to grow the capacity and abilities of AI and ML. The demand for AI is at its peak, as it is highly used in analysing and processing large volumes of data. Due to the high volume and intensity of this work, it cannot be handled and supervised manually. AI is used in analytics for data-based predictions that enable people to come up with more effective strategies and strong solutions. FinTech applies AI in investment platforms to conduct market research and make predictions about where to invest funds for greater profits. The travel industry utilises AI to launch chatbots and make the user journey better. Python Web App Examples are proof of that. Due to such high processing power, AI and ML are absolutely capable of providing a better user experience, that is not only more apt but also more personal, making it more effective than ever.


Preserving Integrity in Online Social Networks

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Online social networks provide a platform for sharing information and free expression. However, these networks are also used for malicious purposes, such as distributing misinformation and hate speech, selling illegal drugs, and coordinating sex trafficking or child exploitation. This paper surveys the state of the art in keeping online platforms and their users safe from such harm, also known as the problem of preserving integrity. This survey comes from the perspective of having to combat a broad spectrum of integrity violations at Facebook. We highlight the techniques that have been proven useful in practice and that deserve additional attention from the academic community. Instead of discussing the many individual violation types, we identify key aspects of the social-media eco-system, each of which is common to a wide variety violation types. Furthermore, each of these components represents an area for research and development, and the innovations that are found can be applied widely.


ISA: An Intelligent Shopping Assistant

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Despite the growth of e-commerce, brick-andmortar stores are still the preferred destinations for many people. In this paper, we present ISA, a mobile-based intelligent shopping assistant that is designed to improve shopping experience in physical stores. ISA assists users by leveraging advanced techniques in computer vision, speech processing, and natural language processing. An in-store user only needs to take a picture or scan the barcode of the product of interest, and then the user can talk to the assistant about the product. The assistant can also guide the user through the purchase process or recommend other similar Figure 1: ISA assists users at physical stores products to the user. We take a data-driven approach in building the engines of ISA's natural language processing component, and the
