5 Explainable Machine Learning Models You Should Understand


As we know, Machine Learning is ubiquitous in our day to day lives. From product recommendations on Amazon, targeted advertising, and suggestions of what to watch, to funny Instagram filters. If something goes wrong with these, it probably won't ruin your life. Maybe you won't get that perfect selfie, or maybe companies will have to spend more on advertising. We need to be able to dissect our model, we will need to be able to understand and explain our model before it goes anywhere near a production system.

How to Do Multi-Task Learning Intelligently


During the past decade, machine learning has exploded in popularity and is now being applied to problems in many fields. Traditionally, a single machine learning model is devoted to one task, e.g. There are some advantages, however, to training models to make multiple kinds of predictions on a single sample, e.g. This is known as Multi-task learning (MTL). In this article, we discuss the motivation for MTL as well as some use cases, difficulties, and recent algorithmic advances.

Machine Learning using Python Programming


'Machine Learning is all about how a machine with an artificial intelligence learns like a human being' Welcome to the course on Machine Learning and Implementing it using Python 3. As the title says, this course recommends to have a basic knowledge in Python 3 to grasp the implementation part easily but it is not compulsory. This course has strong content on the core concepts of ML such as it's features, the steps involved in building a ML Model - Data Preprocessing, Finetuning the Model, Overfitting, Underfitting, Bias, Variance, Confusion Matrix and performance measures of a ML Model. We'll understand the importance of many preprocessing techniques such as Binarization, MinMaxScaler, Standard Scaler We can implement many ML Algorithms in Python using scikit-learn library in a few lines. Can't we? Yet, that won't help us to understand the algorithms. Hence, in this course, we'll first look into understanding the mathematics and concepts behind the algorithms and then, we'll implement the same in Python.

New machine learning methods could improve environmental predictions


Machine learning algorithms do a lot for us every day--send unwanted email to our spam folder, warn us if our car is about to back into something, and give us recommendations on what TV show to watch next. Now, we are increasingly using these same algorithms to make environmental predictions for us. A team of researchers from the University of Minnesota, University of Pittsburgh, and U.S. Geological Survey recently published a new study on predicting flow and temperature in river networks in the 2021 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) International Conference on Data Mining (SDM21) proceedings. The research demonstrates a new machine learning method where the algorithm is "taught" the rules of the physical world in order to make better predictions and steer the algorithm toward physically meaningful relationships between inputs and outputs. The study presents a model that can make more accurate river and stream temperature predictions, even when little data is available, which is the case in most rivers and streams.

Podcast: Hired by an algorithm

MIT Technology Review

If you've applied for a job lately, it's all but guaranteed that your application was reviewed by software--in most cases, before a human ever laid eyes on it. In this episode, the first in a four-part investigation into automated hiring practices, we speak with the CEOs of ZipRecruiter and CareerBuilder, and one of the architects of LinkedIn's algorithmic job-matching system, to explore how AI is increasingly playing matchmaker between job searchers and employers. But while software helps speed up the process of sifting through the job market, algorithms have a history of biasing the opportunities they present to people by gender, race...and in at least one case, whether you played lacrosse in high school. This miniseries on hiring was reported by Hilke Schellmann and produced by Jennifer Strong, Emma Cillekens, and Anthony Green with special thanks to Karen Hao. Jennifer: Searching for a job can be incredibly stressful, especially when you've been at it for a while. Anonymous Jobseeker: At that moment in time I wanted to give up, and I was like, all right, maybe this, this industry isn't for me or maybe I'm just dumb. And I was just like, really beating myself up. I did go into the imposter syndrome, when I felt like this is not where I belong. Jennifer: And this woman, who we'll call Sally, knows the struggle all too well. She's a black woman with a unique name trying to break into the tech industry. Since she's criticizing the hiring methods of potential employers, she's asked us not to use her real name. Anonymous Jobseeker: So, I use Glassdoor, I use LinkedIn, going to the website specifically, as well as other people in my networks to see, hey, are they hiring? And yeah, I think in total I applied to 146 jobs. Jennifer: And.. she knows that exact number, because she put every application in a spreadsheet.

Top AI Courses Launched By Indian Institutions In 2021


India is expected to invest $1 billion in artificial intelligence by 2023, according to a recent report from Project Management Institute (PMI), a Philadelphia-based non-profit organisation. Last year, the Indian government allocated $477 million to boost the country's AI ecosystem. Further, as part of the National Education Policy (NEP), AI will be introduced in school curriculums. Inarguably, India is making bottom-up changes to become an AI superpower. Below, we take a look at the latest AI courses offered by Indian institutions.

Weak Supervision in Biomedicine


We discuss Jason's path into machine learning, empowering doctors and scientists with weak supervision, and utilizing organizational resources in biomedical applications of Snorkel. This episode is part of the #ScienceTalks video series hosted by the Snorkel AI team. Jason: Originally, during my undergraduate days, I intended to go into medicine. However, I enjoyed engineering classes way more than biology classes, so I shifted and majored in Computer Science and English. I also worked with a research group at the University of Iowa to track infections in hospitals.

Real-Time Machine Learning: Why It's Vital and How to Do It « Machine Learning Times


This article is sponsored by IBM. SUMMARY: Organizations often miss the greatest opportunities that machine learning has to offer because tapping them requires real-time predictive scoring. In order to optimize the very largest-scale processes – which is a vital endeavor for your business – predictive scoring must take place right at the moment of each and every interaction. The good news is that you probably already have the hardware to handle this endeavor: the same system currently running your high-volume transactions – oftentimes a mainframe. But getting this done requires a specialized leadership practice and strong-willed change management. Heed this warning: The greatest opportunities with machine learning are exactly the ones that your business is most likely to miss. To be specific, there's massive potential for real-time predictive scoring to optimize your largest-scale operations. But with these particularly high stakes comes a tragic case of analysis paralysis.

A unique collaboration with US Special Operations Command


When General Richard D. Clarke, commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), visited MIT in fall 2019, he had artificial intelligence on the mind. As the commander of a military organization tasked with advancing U.S. policy objectives as well as predicting and mitigating future security threats, he knew that the acceleration and proliferation of artificial intelligence technologies worldwide would change the landscape on which USSOCOM would have to act. Clarke met with Anantha P. Chandrakasan, dean of the School of Engineering and the Vannevar Bush Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and after touring multiple labs both agreed that MIT -- as a hub for AI innovation -- would be an ideal institution to help USSOCOM rise to the challenge. Thus, a new collaboration between the MIT School of Engineering, MIT Professional Education, and USSOCOM was born: a six-week AI and machine learning crash course designed for special operations personnel. "There has been tremendous growth in the fields of computing and artificial intelligence over the past few years," says Chandrakasan.
