How AI will shape smart cities


Cities worldwide are not just growing, but also trying to reconfigure themselves for a sustainable future, with higher quality of life for every citizen. That means capitalizing on renewable power sources, maximizing energy efficiency and scaling up electrified transport on an unprecedented scale. The 2015 Paris Agreement called for limiting the rise in average global temperatures to 1.5oC compared to pre-industrial levels, implying a massive reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Meeting the ambitious climate goal would require a near-total elimination of emissions from power generation, industry, and transport by 2050, said Ariel Liebman, Director of Monash Energy Institute, at a recent AI for Good webinar convened by an ITU Focus Group studying AI and environmental efficiency. Renewable energy sources, including the sun, wind, biofuels and renewable-based hydrogen, make net-zero emissions theoretically possible.

Top Data Annotation Tools and its role in Machine Learning


Data annotation is the way toward labelling images, audio, video frames, and text information primarily utilized in directed ML to prepare and train the datasets that assist a machine with understanding the input info and act as needs are. There are many kinds of annotations: bounding boxes, landmark annotation, semantic division, polyline annotation, polygon annotation, key issues, named entity recognition, and 3D point cloud annotations. With the headways in deep learning algorithms, NLP and computer vision have extraordinarily developed and done miracles around the world of Artificial Intelligence. Alongside this, AutoML has additionally developed. It has driven numerous enterprises to adopt AI quickly and use it in original use cases.

Machine learning can be your best bet to transform your career


Meta- Machine learning is also booming as a field of study. While virtual courses on AI and machine learning can be a pricy affair, the very attempt in learning machine learning can be done otherwise as well. This is the best time to learn machine learning as the trends in the market suggest. The global machine learning market is estimated at US dollar 8.43 billion in 2019, and is expected to reach 117 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 39.2%. Thus, job opportunities in this sector are going to grow with a boom in the coming years. AI and machine learning are not only used in machine learning applications but also in Internet of things, like self-driving cars, smart homes, digital assistants, etc.

Machine learning on Raspberry Pi just took a big step forward


Raspberry Pi is a capable little machine, but if you're interested in developing your own embedded machine-learning applications, training custom models on the platform has historically been tricky due to the Pi's limited processing power. But things have just taken a big step forward. Yesterday, Edge Impulse, the cloud-based development platform for machine learning on edge devices, announced its foray into embedded Linux with full, official support for the Raspberry Pi 4. As a result, users can now upload data and train their own custom machine-learning algorithms in the cloud, and then deploy them back to their Raspberry Pi. SEE: C programming language: How it became the foundation for everything, and what's next (free PDF) (TechRepublic) Four new machine-learning software development kits (SDKs) for Raspberry Pi are available week, including C, Go, Node.js and Python, allowing users to program their own custom applications for inferencing. Support for object detection has also been added, meaning Raspberry Pi owners can use camera data captured on their device to train their own custom object detection algorithms, instead of having to rely on'stock' classification models.

How machine learning is used in Cybersecurity? [in 2021], Malick Sarr


From insider threats to abuse of privileges and management to hackers, humans are important and diverse carriers of cyber risks. Therefore, Machine Learning help detect changes in the way users interact in the IT environment and describe their behavioral characteristics in the attack environment. Despite high marketing requirements, the reality is that the corporate security environment is a huge and dynamic network. And managers must constantly monitor, audit, and update based on continuous, unpredictable, internal, and external threat vectors. ML introduces various enhancements in the ability to detect, investigate, and respond to threats. But it is a combination of personnel and technology that can manage a full range of threats in the ever-evolving security environment.

Machine Learning A-Z : Hands-On Python & R In Data Science


Learn to create Machine Learning Algorithms in Python and R from two Data Science experts. And in this section we're talking about the K means clustering algorithm. And in this tutorial we're going to talk about the intuition behind Kamins. So Kamins is a algorithm that allows you to closter your data and as we will see it's a very convenient tool for discovering categories of groups in your data set that you wouldn't have otherwise thought of yourself. And in this section or in this specific tutorial we'll learn how to understand k means on an intuitive level and we'll see an example of Hardwick's.

The Role and Potential of CPUs in Deep Learning


Deep learning (DL) applications have unique architectural characteristics and efficiency requirements. Hence, the choice of computing system has a profound impact on how large a piece of the DL pie a user can finally enjoy. Even though accelerators may provide higher throughput than general-purpose computing systems (CPUs), there are several other metrics and usage scenarios on which CPUs are preferred or are superior. A recent survey paper I've coauthored with Poonam Rajput and Sreenivas Subramoney (A Survey of Deep Learning on CPUs: Opportunities and Co-optimizations) highlights the strengths of CPUs in DL, and identifies opportunities for further optimization. Sparse DNNs are inefficient on massively parallel processors because of their irregular memory accesses and inability to leverage optimizations such as cache tiling and vectorization.
