"The field of Machine Learning seeks to answer these questions: How can we build computer systems that automatically improve with experience, and what are the fundamental laws that govern all learning processes?"

In 2009, a computer scientist then at Princeton University named Fei-Fei Li invented a data set that would change the history of artificial intelligence. Known as ImageNet, the data set included millions of labeled images that could train sophisticated machine-learning models to recognize something in a picture. The machines surpassed human recognition abilities in 2015. Soon after, Li began looking for what she called another of the "North Stars" that would give AI a different push toward true intelligence. She found inspiration by looking back in time over 530 million years to the Cambrian explosion, when numerous land-dwelling animal species appeared for the first time.
In this post, we will outline key learnings from a real-world example of running inference on a sci-kit learn model using the ONNX Runtime API in an AWS Lambda function. This is not a tutorial but rather a guide focusing on useful tips, points to consider, and quirks that may save you some head-scratching! The Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) format is a bit like dipping your french fries into a milkshake; it shouldn't work but it just does. ONNX allows us to build a model using all the training frameworks we know and love like PyTorch and TensorFlow and package it up in a format supported by many hardware architectures and operating systems. The ONNX Runtime is a simple API that is cross-platform and provides optimal performance to run inference on an ONNX model exactly where you need them: the cloud, mobile, an IoT device, you name it!
Human inventions find their inspiration from nature. Likewise, deep learning was an attempt to model the human brain, one of the most complicated structures in the universe. The attempt was not to mimic every detail of the brain. Instead, artificial neural networks were inspired by biological neural networks, eventually leading to deep learning. So what is deep learning?
AI Researcher, Cognitive Technologist Inventor - AI Thinking, Think Chain Innovator - AIOT, XAI, Autonomous Cars, IIOT Founder Fisheyebox Spatial Computing Savant, Transformative Leader, Industry X.0 Practitioner How can a mathematically-oriented machine truly learn things? Mathematical machines are either formal logical systems, operationalized as symbolic rules-based AI or expert systems, or statistical learning machines, dubbed as narrow/Weak AI, ML, DL, ANNs. Such machines follow blind and mindless mathematical and statistical algorithms, codes, models, programs, and solutions, transforming input data (as independent variables) into the output data (as dependent variables), dubbed as predictions, recommendations, decisions, etc. They are unable to real knowing or learning, as having no interactions with the world, its various domains, rules, laws, objects, events, or processes. Learning is the "acquiring new understanding, knowledge, behaviors, skills, values, attitudes, and preferences" via senses, experience, trial and error, intuition, study and research.
"I just found what I was looking for in the recommendations section. How exactly did they know though?" There is one answer to this simple question: machine learning. Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly becoming more utilized in our transition into the future age of technology, from predicting if one has cancer depending on various health factors, to identifying a person's handwriting and translating it into words. As innovative as it seems, there is no clear line drawn in what can be predicted from algorithms and what can not, but there are criteria and conditions to what machine learning models are considered successful.
Jeremy Howard, a creator of fast.ai and an ex-President of Kaggle says that most of the research in the deep learning world is a total waste of time. He explains why it is so and what is currently being under studied i.e. active learning and transfer learning. Active learning and transfer learning are further elaborated in this blog post. When asked a question "what's wrong with Artificial Intelligence?", However, when you literally dig into the question, the industry of AI is fighting its own demons.

According to observations, children with autism frequently speak more slowly than similarly developing kids. They differ in their speech in other ways, most notably in tone, intonation, and rhythm. It is very challenging to consistently and objectively describe these "prosodic" distinctions, and it has been decades since their roots have been identified. Researchers from Northwestern University and Hong Kong collaborated on a study to shed light on the causes and diagnoses of this illness. This method uses machine learning to find speech patterns in autistic children that are similar in Cantonese and English.
