DeepMind's new AI system can perform over 600 tasks – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

The ultimate achievement to some in the AI industry is creating a system with artificial general intelligence (AGI), or the ability to understand and learn any task that a human can. Long relegated to the domain of science fiction, it's been suggested that AGI would bring about systems with the ability to reason, plan, learn, represent knowledge, and communicate in natural language. Not every expert is convinced that AGI is a realistic goal -- or even possible. Gato is what DeepMind describes as a "general-purpose" system, a system that can be taught to perform many different types of tasks. Researchers at DeepMind trained Gato to complete 604, to be exact, including captioning images, engaging in dialogue, stacking blocks with a real robot arm, and playing Atari games. Jack Hessel, a research scientist at the Allen Institute for AI, points out that a single AI system that can solve many tasks isn't new.


The "Hello World" of Tensorflow - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Tensorflow is an open-source end-to-end machine learning framework that makes it easy to train and deploy the model. It consists of two words - tensor and flow. A tensor is a vector or a multidimensional array that is a standard way of representing the data in deep learning models. Flow implies how the data moves through a graph by undergoing the operations called nodes. It is used for numerical computation and large-scale machine learning by bundling various algorithms together.


Everything You Need to Know About Tensors - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

TensorFlow is the go-to library for most machine learning model developers. It comes with the ease of providing standard Keras API to allow users to build their own neural networks and is equally prevalent in research and commercial applications. A tensor is a multi-dimensional array of elements with a single data type. It has two key properties – shape and the data type such as float, integer, or string. TensorFlow includes eager execution where code is examined step by step making it easier to debug.


Deep Learning For Compliance Checks: What's New? - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Natural Language Processing (NLP) has long played a significant role in the compliance processes for major banks around the world. By implementing the different NLP techniques into the production processes, compliance departments can maintain detailed checks and keep up with regulator demands. All of these areas can benefit from document processing and the use of NLP techniques to get through the process more effectively. Certain verification tasks fall beyond the realm of using traditional, rules-based NLP systems. This is where deep learning can help fill these gaps, providing smoother and more efficient compliance checks. There are several challenges that make the rules-based system more complicated to use when undergoing check routines.

Look behind the curtain: Don't be dazzled by claims of 'artificial intelligence'

#artificialintelligence

We are presently living in an age of "artificial intelligence" -- but not how the companies selling "AI" would have you believe. According to Silicon Valley, machines are rapidly surpassing human performance on a variety of tasks from mundane, but well-defined and useful ones like automatic transcription to much vaguer skills like "reading comprehension" and "visual understanding." According to some, these skills even represent rapid progress toward "Artificial General Intelligence," or systems which are capable of learning new skills on their own. Given these grand and ultimately false claims, we need media coverage that holds tech companies to account. Far too often, what we get instead is breathless "gee whiz" reporting, even in venerable publications like The New York Times.


Data Science & Deep Learning for Business 20 Case Studies

#artificialintelligence

Welcome to the course on Data Science & Deep Learning for Business 20 Case Studies! This course teaches you how Data Science & Deep Learning can be used to solve real-world business problems and how you can apply these techniques to 20 real-world case studies. Traditional Businesses are hiring Data Scientists in droves, and knowledge of how to apply these techniques in solving their problems will prove to be one of the most valuable skills in the next decade! "I'm only half way through this course, but i have to say WOW. It's so far, a lot better than my Business Analytics MSc I took at UCL. The content is explained better, it's broken down so simply. Some of the Statistical Theory and ML theory lessons are perhaps the best on the internet! "It is pretty different in format, from others.



How Hoxhunt successfully applied machine learning to security awareness, by Ira Winkler - Hoxhunt

#artificialintelligence

There are so many buzzwords and trends in the security awareness industry that it is hard to determine what is useful and what is a gimmick. Every vendor out there has some sort of promise that they have some special characteristic about their product that makes it a revolutionary improvement to your security awareness posture that no other product can accomplish. After reviewing the Hoxhunt solution, it is safe to say that they actually do provide something unique that can really move the needle with your organization's security awareness posture. Machine learning and artificial intelligence are typically buzzwords and technologies that vendors tout as making a product unique. The reality is that machine learning and AI can be useful, however, they are just underlying technologies.


Google unveils the world's largest publicly available machine learning hub

#artificialintelligence

Google I/O 2022, Google's largest developer conference, kicked off with a keynote speech from Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai. The keynote speech had major announcements including the launch of Pixel watch, updates on PaLM and LaMDA, advancements in AR and immersive technology etc. Let us look at the key highlights. "Recently we announced plans to invest USD 9.5 billion in data centers and offices across the US. One of our state-of-the-art data centers is in Mayes County, Oklahoma. I'm excited to announce that, there, we are launching the world's largest, publicly-available machine learning hub for our Google Cloud customers," Sundar Pichai said.
