A Quick Overview of Regression Algorithms in Machine Learning


We basically train machines so as to include some kind of automation in it. In machine learning, we use various kinds of algorithms to allow machines to learn the relationships within the data provided and make predictions using them. So, the kind of model prediction where we need the predicted output is a continuous numerical value, it is called a regression problem. Regression analysis convolves around simple algorithms, which are often used in finance, investing, and others, and establishes the relationship between a single dependent variable dependent on several independent ones. For example, predicting house price or salary of an employee, etc are the most common regression problems.

Beginners Guide to Naive Bayes Algorithm in Python


Naive Bayes is a classification algorithm that works based on the Bayes theorem. Before explaining about Naive Bayes, first, we should discuss Bayes Theorem. Bayes theorem is used to find the probability of a hypothesis with given evidence. In this, using Bayes theorem we can find the probability of A, given that B occurred. A is the hypothesis and B is the evidence.

Artificial Intelligence Discovers Potent Antibiotic


Anewly designed artificial intelligence tool based on the structure of the brain has identified a molecule capable of wiping out a number of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, according to a study published on February 20 in Cell. The molecule, halicin, which had previously been investigated as a potential treatment for diabetes, demonstrated activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis, and several other hard-to-treat microbes. The discovery comes at a time when novel antibiotics are becoming increasingly difficult to find, reports STAT, and when drug-resistant bacteria are a growing global threat. The Interagency Coordination Group (IACG) on Antimicrobial Resistance convened by United Nations a few years ago released a report in 2019 estimating that drug-resistant diseases could result in 10 million deaths per year by 2050. Despite the urgency in the search for new antibiotics, a lack of financial incentives has caused pharmaceutical companies to scale back their research, according to STAT. "I do think this platform will very directly reduce the cost involved in the discovery phase of antibiotic development," coauthor James Collins of MIT tells STAT.

"As you identify more and more examples of covert payment the AI learns on the fly. That's the beauty and the magic of AI," says Mr Mason. A scoring system was set up, with points added for certain attributes. Any score above a certain number was deemed worthy of further investigation. The machine-learning technology became better and better as it progressed.

Top 6 Deep Learning Models You Should Master for Killer AI Applications


The field of deep learning has gained popularity with the rise of available processing power, storage space, and big data. Instead of using traditional machine learning models, AI engineers have been gradually switching to deep learning models. Where there is abundant data, deep learning models almost always outperform traditional machine learning models. Therefore, as we collect more data at every passing year, it makes sense to use deep learning models. Furthermore, the field of deep learning is also growing fast.

'AI algorithm can predict Alzheimer's disease in 1 minute'


A study by Vuno, a Korean artificial intelligence (AI) developer, showed that a deep learning algorithm could predict Alzheimer's disease (AD) within one minute. Jointly with Asan Medical Center, Vuno verified an AI algorithm using MRI scans of 2,727 patients registered at domestic medical institutions. Vuno found that the algorithm predicted AD and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) accurately. Vuno's deep learning-based algorithm used an area under the curve (AUC) to predict dementia. The closer the AUC value is, the higher the algorithm's performance is.

Accelerating the Practical Use of AI - InformationWeek


The hype for how artificial intelligence can miraculously change the world continues to fill media outlets. Still, the reality of how rapidly the science behind AI is evolving and becoming mainstream in every industry and facet of business will not be impeded. By the year 2025, the intersection of "advanced" AI and intelligent machines will become a part of every user's "things I just know how to use." As more industries adopt AI solutions and become savvy about how AI impacts their engagement with suppliers and employees, it is important for organizations to follow four key steps to implement it. While roles like data scientist, chief data officer, and senior data engineer are vital to implementing AI/ML systems, the two following roles are imperative for practical implementation.
