Types of Machine Learning (ML): A Beginner's Guide

#artificialintelligence

Right from image recognition to fraud detection, there are barely any ways left where the magic of machine Learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) has not mesmerized us with. Together, both ML and AI have changed the way we interact with data and use it to enable massive digital growth. On that note, customers too have benefitted from its magic, in identifying data and then using that data to receive accurate outputs. Today, in this blog, we will walk you through the three types of machine learning. But before that, let us brush up on some of the basics.


DEEP AND SURFACE LEARNING

#artificialintelligence

In instruction, two general methodologies lead understudies towards their schooling -- profound and surface learning. Man has five fundamental requests in their life. Training is one of them. Man can learn at whatever stage in life. All aspects of your life have numerous things to learn.


AI to be top tool as captured data volume rockets - Insurtech - Insurance News - insuranceNEWS.com.au

#artificialintelligence

Rapid advancement in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies over the next decade will allow insurers to capitalise on the capture of vast swathes of digitised data from diverse sources, Finity says. Gone are the days of the data only being stored in database tables. More and more data organisations are now leveraging "natural language" data: documents, emails, transcribed phone conversations, and photos and videos. The amount of data stored in the digital universe globally has been estimated at 44 zettabytes – around 40 times the number of stars in the observable universe, or 4.4 followed by 22 zeroes. "As insurance professionals we know the importance and power of data and this trend isn't going to slow," Finity Principal Marcello Negro said.

Bomberland: a new multi-agent artificial intelligence competition

#artificialintelligence

Bomberland is a new 1v1 AI competition developed by Coder One. It features a multi-agent adversarial environment inspired by the classic console game, Bomberman. Your task is to program an intelligent agent navigating a 2D grid world. Your agent controls a team of units collecting powerups and placing explosives, with the ultimate goal of taking your opponent down. Bomberland is a challenging problem for out-of-the-box machine learning algorithms.


Mathematics for Data Science

#artificialintelligence

Learning the theoretical background for data science or machine learning can be a daunting experience, as it involves multiple fields of mathematics and a long list of online resources. In this piece, my goal is to suggest resources to build the mathematical background necessary to get up and running in data science practical/research work. These suggestions are derived from my own experience in the data science field and following up with the latest resources suggested by the community. However, suppose you are a beginner in machine learning and looking to get a job in the industry. In that case, I don't recommend studying all the math before starting to do actual practical work.


Computer vision can help spot cyber threats with startling accuracy

#artificialintelligence

This article is part of our reviews of AI research papers, a series of posts that explore the latest findings in artificial intelligence. The last decade's growing interest in deep learning was triggered by the proven capacity of neural networks in computer vision tasks. If you train a neural network with enough labeled photos of cats and dogs, it will be able to find recurring patterns in each category and classify unseen images with decent accuracy. What else can you do with an image classifier? In 2019, a group of cybersecurity researchers wondered if they could treat security threat detection as an image classification problem.


Choosing the Ideal Learning Rate

#artificialintelligence

The learning rate is often considered to be the most important hyper-parameter when training a model. Choosing the optimal learning rate can greatly improve the training of a neural network and can prevent any odd behavior that may occur during stochastic gradient descent. Stochastic gradient descent (SGD) is an optimization algorithm that helps the loss function converge to the global minimum, or where the loss is at its lowest point. It behaves just like gradient descent, but also has batches to increase the computational efficiency. Gradient descent is performed to each of these smaller batches instead of the entire training set size.


Top Edge Computing Companies for 2021

#artificialintelligence

Edge computing companies offer a more efficient way to process and transmit data, solving two problems: the need for more IT infrastructure, and the massive amounts of unused data generated by edge points. With the rise of 5G networks, some believe edge computing is the next evolution in this space. If you're trying to find the best edge computing company for your business, this article will help you narrow your search. With edge computing, companies gain near real-time insights with less latency and lower cloud server bandwidth usage.

Chi-Square Test Examples with R

#artificialintelligence

The first one helps determine any association between qualitative variables, and the second one tells whether a sample follows the same distribution as a sample or not. This test helps determine any association between two categorical values of qualitative data. It is only applicable to the Categorical data. The main task is to check whether they are not independent or how they are affecting each other. The hypothesis test carried out to check the link between the two is known as a test for independence.
