Artificial intelligence (AI) can become more efficient and reliable if it is made to mimic biological models. New approaches in AI research are hugely successful in experiments. Artificial intelligence has arrived in our everyday lives--from search engines to self-driving cars. This has to do with the enormous computing power that has become available in recent years. But new results from AI research now show that simpler, smaller neural networks can be used to solve certain tasks even better, more efficiently, and more reliably than ever before.
Here's a topic that entails intense controversy, oftentimes sparking loud arguments and heated responses. Do you think that men are better drivers than women, or do you believe that women are better drivers than men? Seems like most of us have an opinion on the matter, one way or another. Stereotypically, men are often characterized as fierce drivers that have a take-no-prisoners attitude, while women supposedly are more forgiving and civil in their driving actions. Depending on how extreme you want to take these tropes, some would say that women shouldn't be allowed on our roadways due to their timidity, while the same could be said that men should not be at the wheel due to their crazed pedal-to-the-metal predilection.
A course that will help you implement reinforcement learning in your projects!! In the last few years, we heard about Google's AlphaGo defeating the GO champion; we heard that the latest AIs are now playing Super Mario or Dota2, or even AI-powered self-driving cars (Tesla) have started carrying passengers without human assistance. If all this sounds crazy, then brace yourself for the future because development in AI is increasing at a pace like never before. Reinforcement learning is one such development in AI that has opened a whole new world. To help you learn this concept, we are set to launch an entire curation dedicated to Reinforcement Learning.
People, bicycles, cars or road, sky, grass: Which pixels of an image represent distinct foreground persons or objects in front of a self-driving car, and which pixels represent background classes? This task, known as panoptic segmentation, is a fundamental problem that has applications in numerous fields such as self-driving cars, robotics, augmented reality and even in biomedical image analysis. At the Department of Computer Science at the University of Freiburg Dr. Abhinav Valada, Assistant Professor for Robot Learning and member of BrainLinks-BrainTools focuses on this research question. Valada and his team have developed the state-of-the-art "EfficientPS" artificial intelligence (AI) model that enables coherent recognition of visual scenes more quickly and effectively. This task is mostly tackled using a machine learning technique known as deep learning where artificial neural networks that are inspired from the human brain, learn from large amounts of data, explains the Freiburg researcher.
Vision is the biggest gift given to humans. As we continue to struggle towards making technology more and more like us, this is one thing we need to put the most effort into. Machines are now easily able to capture images, but recognizing the surrounding environment and objects cannot be done if they don't let how to interpret the information that lies in them. That's why Computer Vision is important if we want to make humans truly intelligent. Let's see what it is and how it is making different fields better.
Tesla may be introducing machine-learning training as a web service with its upcoming'Dojo' supercomputer, CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter. Project Dojo was initially revealed by Musk last year and is a supercomputer which Tesla has been working on. The supercomputer has been designed to ingest massive amounts of video data and perform massive levels of unsupervised training on the visual data. The goal of Dojo will be to be able to take in vast amounts of data and train at a video level and do massive unsupervised training of vast amounts of video data. Dojo uses our own chips & a computer architecture optimized for neural net training, not a GPU cluster. Could be wrong, but I think it will be best in world.
It was reported that Venture Capital investments into AI related startups made a significant increase in 2018, jumping by 72% compared to 2017, with 466 startups funded from 533 in 2017. PWC moneytree report stated that that seed-stage deal activity in the US among AI-related companies rose to 28% in the fourth-quarter of 2018, compared to 24% in the three months prior, while expansion-stage deal activity jumped to 32%, from 23%. There will be an increasing international rivalry over the global leadership of AI. President Putin of Russia was quoted as saying that "the nation that leads in AI will be the ruler of the world". Billionaire Mark Cuban was reported in CNBC as stating that "the world's first trillionaire would be an AI entrepreneur".
Because this year's UseR 2020 in Munich couldn't happen as an in-person event, I will be giving my workshop on Deep Learning with Keras and TensorFlow as an online event on You can register for FREE via Eventbrite. Deep learning is an artificial intelligence that mimics the workings of a human brain in processing different data, creating patterns and interpreting information that is used for decision making. It is a subfield of machine learning in artificial intelligence and Its networks has the capability to learn, supervised or unsupervised, from data that is either structured or labelled. It is one of the hottest trends in machine learning at the moment and there are many problems where deep learning shines, such as Self Driving Cars, Natural Language Processing, Machine Translations, image recognition and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and so on.
Safety is the central focus on driverless vehicle systems development. Artificial intelligence (AI) is coming at us fast. It's being used in the apps and services we plug into daily without us really noticing, whether it's a personalized ad on Facebook, or Google recommending how you sign off your email. If these applications fail, it may result in some irritation to the user in the worst case. But we are increasingly entrusting AI and machine learning to safety-critical applications, where system failure results in a lot more than a slight UX issue.
