How to use the Lazy Predict library to select the best machine learning model


Machine learning is a hot topic in data science, but few people understand the fundamental concepts behind them. You may be fascinated by how people get high paying jobs because they know how to execute machine learning, only to be quickly intimidated by the sophisticated theorems and mathematics behind machine learning. While I am no machine learning expert, I hope to provide some basics about machine learning and how you can potentially use Python to perform machine learning. With all the available machine learning tools available at your fingertips, it is often tempting to jump straight into solving a data-related problem by running your favourite algorithm. However, this is usually a bad way to begin your analysis.

This is stifling Machine Learning Research


Most of my content revolves around machine learning research/ideas. There is a reason for this. While coding-heavy tutorial articles/videos are more popular and valuable, technologies change over time. My goal is to take these complex machine learning concepts that are often found in papers/research and introduce them to you so that you can choose what tool you need to use in your specific context. In it, I will take a step back and talk about the peer review system.

Top Human Brain Inspired AI Projects to Know in 2021


AI models help to learn about neurobiology and approaches assisting in building software programs. Numenta Platform for Intelligent Computing is of the top brain-inspired AI projects consisting of a set of learning algorithms. Learning algorithms are known for capturing different layers of neurons for neural networks in artificial intelligence. Visual pattern recognition, NLP, object recognition, and many more can be done by human brains with the help of the neocortex. This AI project helps the machines to approach and take over human-level activities efficiently and effectively. Neu is known as a C framework with a collection of multiple programming languages as well as multi-purpose software systems.



To determine whether deep learning algorithms developed in a public competition could identify lung cancer on low-dose CT scans with a performance similar to that of radiologists. In this retrospective study, a dataset consisting of 300 patient scans was used for model assessment; 150 patient scans were from the competition set and 150 were from an independent dataset. Both test datasets contained 50 cancer-positive scans and 100 cancer-negative scans. The reference standard was set by histopathologic examination for cancer-positive scans and imaging follow-up for at least 2 years for cancer-negative scans. The test datasets were applied to the three top-performing algorithms from the Kaggle Data Science Bowl 2017 public competition: grt123, Julian de Wit and Daniel Hammack (JWDH), and Aidence.

US and China Race to Control the Future Through Artificial Intelligence


As every aspect of modern life becomes more and more digitized, not just the economies of nations, but their sovereign influence will rely more and more on their command of technology, and especially the emerging technology of artificial intelligence (AI). In the 21st-century information technology revolution, whoever reaches a breakthrough in developing AI will come to dominate the world. "Artificial intelligence is a resource of colossal power," Russian President Vladimir Putin said at AI Journey 2019 conference, a major Eastern European forum on AI held in Moscow on Nov. 9, 2019. "Those who will own it will take the lead and will acquire a huge competitive edge." Putin expressed his concern about Russia's role in the artificial intelligence race in the forum--its two competitors, the United States and China, are far ahead of other countries in the AI race. "We must, and I am confident that we can become one of the global leaders in AI. This is a matter of our future, of Russia's place in the world," Putin added. Though the United States is still the world leader in terms of AI, China is quickly moving to take its place. On Oct. 16, Nicolas Chaillan, the former chief software officer of the U.S. Air Force, told The Epoch Times that the United States is set to lose the AI race against communist China if Washington doesn't act fast.

Eliminating AI Bias


The primary purpose of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is to reduce manual labour by using a machine's ability to scan large amounts of data to detect underlying patterns and anomalies in order to save time and raise efficiency. However, AI algorithms are not immune to bias. As AI algorithms can have long-term impacts on an organisation's reputation and severe consequences for the public, it is important to ensure that they are not biased towards a particular subgroup within a population. In layman's terms, algorithmic bias within AI algorithms occurs when the outcome is a lack of fairness or a favouritism towards one group due to a specific categorical distinction, where the categories are ethnicity, age, gender, qualifications, disabilities, and geographic location. If this in-depth educational content is useful for you, subscribe to our AI research mailing list to be alerted when we release new material. AI Bias takes place when assumptions are made incorrectly about the dataset or the model output during the machine learning process, which subsequently leads to unfair results. Bias can occur during the design of the project or in the data collection process that produces output that unfairly represents the population. For example, a survey posted on Facebook asking about people's perceptions of the COVID-19 lockdown in Victoria finds that 90% of Victorians are afraid of travelling interstate and overseas due to the pandemic. This statement is flawed because it is based upon individuals that access social media (i.e., Facebook) only, could include users that are not located in Victoria, and may overrepresent a particular age group (i.e. To effectively identify AI Bias, we need to look for presence of bias across the AI Lifecycle shown in Figure 1.

Role of choosing correct loss function


Readers of this blog already know what loss functions are in AI but for people starting into the field let me define it again. The loss function is a mathematical equation that all the deep learning algorithm tries to minimize or optimize. As we all know that Deep learning takes an iterative process to learn things, in every step, it calculates some metric that tells it how close it is to the original label and based upon that it optimizes its parameters. So the metrics that we minimize or optimize are called loss functions. There are a lot of famous loss functions like Mean square error, categorical cross-entropy, Dice loss, and many more.

Machine learning model uses clinical and genomic data to predict immunotherapy effectiveness


The forecasting tool assesses multiple patient-specific biological and clinical factors to predict the degree of response to immune checkpoint inhibitors and survival outcomes. It markedly outperforms individual biomarkers or other combinations of variables developed so far, according to findings published in Nature Biotechnology. With further validation, the tool may help oncologists better identify patients most likely to benefit from ICB. Discerning, prior to treatment, patients for whom ICB would be ineffective could reduce unnecessary expense and exposure to potential side effects. It could also indicate the need to pursue alternate treatment strategies, such as combination therapies. "It's important to know which treatment modalities patients are most suited for," said Dr. Chan, director of Cleveland Clinic's Center for Immunotherapy & Precision Immuno-Oncology.
