New machine-learning approach brings digital photos back to life

#artificialintelligence

Every day, billions of photos and videos are posted to various social media applications. The problem with standard images taken by a smartphone or digital camera is that they only capture a scene from a specific point of view. But looking at it in reality, we can move around and observe it from different viewpoints. Computer scientists are working to provide an immersive experience for the users that would allow them to observe a scene from different viewpoints, but it requires specialized camera equipment that is not readily accessible to the average person. To make the process easier, Dr. Nima Kalantari, professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, and graduate student Qinbo Li have developed a machine-learning-based approach that would allow users to take a single photo and use it to generate novel views of the scene.


Building Machine Learning Models With TensorFlow

#artificialintelligence

If you have built Deep Neural Networks before, you might know that it can involve a lot of experimentation. In this article, I will share with you some useful tips and guidelines that you can use to better build better deep learning models. These tricks should make it a lot easier for you to develop a good network. You can pick and choose which tips you use, as some will be more helpful for the projects you are working on. Not everything mentioned in this article will straight up improve your models' performance.


10 surprising things that rely on artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

As IBM explain, "at its simplest form, artificial intelligence is a field, which combines computer science and robust datasets to enable problem-solving." It includes the sub-fields of machine learning and deep learning. These two fields use algorithms that are designed to make predictions or classifications based on input data. Of course, as technology becomes more sophisticated, literally millions of decisions need to be made every day and AI speeds things up and takes the burden off humans. The World Economic Forum describes AI as a key driver of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.


Top 10 Python Data Science Libraries - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Python continues to lead the way when it comes to Machine Learning, AI, Deep Learning and Data Science tasks. Because of this, we've decided to start a series investigating the top Python libraries across several categories: Of course, these lists are entirely subjective as many libraries could easily place in multiple categories. Now, let's get onto the list (GitHub figures correct as of November 16th, 2018): "pandas is a Python package providing fast, flexible, and expressive data structures designed to make working with "relational" or "labeled" data both easy and intuitive. It aims to be the fundamental high-level building block for doing practical, real world data analysis in Python." "Matplotlib is a Python 2D plotting library which produces publication-quality figures in a variety of hardcopy formats and interactive environments across platforms. Matplotlib can be used in Python scripts, the Python and IPython shell (à la MATLAB or Mathematica), web application servers, and various graphical user interface toolkits."


Improving customer service with an intelligent virtual assistant using IBM Watson

#artificialintelligence

Gartner predicts that "by 2022, 70 percent of white-collar workers will interact with conversational platforms on a daily basis." As a result, the research group found that more organizations are investing in chatbot development and deployment. IBM Business Partners like Sopra Steria are making chatbot and virtual assistant technology available to businesses. Sopra Steria, a European leader in digital transformation, has developed an intelligent virtual assistant for organizations across several industries who want to use an AI conversational interface to answer recurrent customer service questions. In developing our solution, we at Sopra Steria were looking for AI technology that was easy to configure and could support multiple languages and complex dialogs.


Three Use Cases of AI and Machine Learning Technology You May Not Know

#artificialintelligence

Even though we're far from achieving critical mass in the legal profession when it comes to the use of predictive coding technologies and approaches in electronic discovery, the use of predictive coding for document review – especially relevancy review – to support discovery is certainly the most common use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies. Some of you reading this blog post may be "old pros" at this point when it comes to the use of predictive coding while others of you still have yet to "dip your toes" into the predictive coding pool. But applying machine learning technology to support document review (which is predictive coding) is far from the only discovery-related workflow and use case where AI and machine learning technology can be applied. There are several others that forward-thinking organizations are looking to also implement to streamline workflows in the discovery life cycle. How could we forget one of the "forgotten ends" that I discussed last week?

A perspective on the history of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) history consists of original work and research by not only mathematicians and computer scientists, but studies by psychologists, physicists, and economists have also been much used. The timeline consists of the pre-1950 era of statistical methods to present AlphaZero in 2017 and more. The most significant push in the development of technology was during the 2nd world war where both the allied forces and their enemies worked hard to develop technology which can help them get superiority over others. The timeline started in 1943, work by McCulloch and Pitts on Artificial Neuron gets the recognition of first work on AI. After work done by and McCulloch, Donald Hebb demonstrated rule for modifying connection strings between neurons -- this is called Hebbian learning.


The 13 Best Machine Learning Certifications Online for 2021

#artificialintelligence

The editors at Solutions Review have compiled this list of the best machine learning certifications online to consider acquiring. Machine learning involves studying computer algorithms that improve automatically through experience. It is a sub-field of artificial intelligence where machine learning algorithms build models based on sample (or training) data. Once a predictive model is constructed it can be used to make predictions or decisions without being specifically commanded to do so. Machine learning is now a mainstream technology with a wide variety of uses and applications.


Stock Price Prediction Using Python & Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

In this tutorial will show you how to write a Python program that predicts the price of stocks using two different Machine Learning Algorithms, one is called a Support Vector Regression (SVR) and the other is Linear Regression. So you can start trading and making money! Actually this program is really simple and I doubt any major profit will be made from this program, but it's slightly better than guessing! In this video will show you how to write a Python program that predicts the price of stocks using two different Machine Learning Algorithms, one is called a Support Vector Regression (SVR) and the other is Linear Regression.
