The Rise of the Transformers: Explaining the Tech Underlying GPT-3

#artificialintelligence

The capabilities of GPT -3 has led to a debate between some as to whether or not GPT-3 and its underlying architecture will enable Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) in the future against those (many being from the school of logic and symbolic AI) who believe that without some form of logic there can be no AGI. The truth of the matter is that we don't know as we don't really fully understand the human brain. With science and engineering we work upon the basis of observation and testing. This section also addresses points raised by Esaú Flores. Gary Grossman in an article entitled Are we entering the AI Twilight Zone between AI and AGI? observed that in February 2020, Geoffrey Hinton, the University of Toronto professor who is a pioneer of Deep Learning, noted: "There are one trillion synapses in a cubic centimeter of the brain. If there is such a thing as general AI, [the system] would probably require one trillion synapses." The human brain has a huge number of synapses. Each of the 1011 (one hundred billion) neurons has on average 7,000 synaptic connections (synapses) to other neurons. It has been estimated that the brain of a three-year-old child has about 1015 synapses (1 quadrillion).


Introduction to Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

Humans learn from their experiences and gain expertise. Machine Learning is concerned with computer programs that imitate this process. It is a field of study that gives computers the capability to learn without being explicitly programmed. Can you imagine how Netflix makes those recommendations? The program learns from your past activities and tries to gain expertise in predicting your behavior.


How to Optimize a Deep Learning Model

#artificialintelligence

Hyperparameter optimization is a critical part of deep learning. Just selecting a model is not enough to achieve exceptional performance. You also need to tune your model.


AI: The New Teacher's Pet

#artificialintelligence

Throw out the chalk and blackboards, because there's a new player in the world of education. While ink and copybooks were the foundation stones for a new era of learning centuries ago, in 2021 we stand on the precipice of another massive change in educational technology: artificial intelligence. Today's Daily Dose takes you through the exciting new ways technology is set to mold education in the years to come. We look at how it can ease stress, save time and put a 21st-century touch on some age-old teaching methods. So hang up your backpack and put away your pencil and scissors.


How To: Create a Streaming Data Loader for PyTorch -- Visual Studio Magazine

#artificialintelligence

When training data won't fit into machine memory, a streaming data loader using an internal memory buffer can help. Dr. James McCaffrey shows how, with full code samples. When using the PyTorch neural network library to create a machine learning prediction model, you must prepare the training data and write code to serve up the data in batches. In situations where the training data is too large to fit into machine memory, one approach is to write a data loader that streams the data using an internal memory buffer. This article shows you how to create a streaming data loader for large training data files.


Can you teach AI common sense?

#artificialintelligence

All the sessions from Transform 2021 are available on-demand now. Even before they speak their first words, human babies develop mental models about objects and people. This is one of the key capabilities that allows us humans to learn to live socially and cooperate (or compete) with each other. But for artificial intelligence, even the most basic behavioral reasoning tasks remain a challenge. Advanced deep learning models can do complicated tasks such as detect people and objects in images, sometimes even better than humans.


Privacy is NOT a reason to slow down AI in medicine

#artificialintelligence

AI in medicine, particular in pediatric medicine holds much promise in taking scarce human expertise and making it available throughout rural America and to the rest of the world. Rwanda has one pediatric cardiologist in the country. In 2015, when neural network technology succeeded in building computer algorithms which were better than humans at image recognition signaled the beginning of this renaissance in AI. But, as the above chart courtesy of Jeff Dean, head of Google Brain shows, the only way to get increasing degrees of accuracy is to have more and more data. Any of you in major metro areas will see Waymo vans driving around collecting more and more data to feed autonomous driving software development.


Student researcher aims to reduce bias in automated surveillance

#artificialintelligence

Saranya Dadi, a second-year computer science student at RIT, is conducting research to make machine learning for automated surveillance systems fairer. However, she's not just focusing on making it faster or more efficient, she also wants to make sure machine learning is ethical. "Just because a computer doesn't have feelings and emotions, doesn't mean there's no bias," said Dadi, who is originally from India. "It is crucial that these systems ensure effective performance and accurately safeguard the interests of organizations, without compromising individual privacy." As Dadi points out, computers are increasingly being used to make decisions that affect human lives--from determining who should receive a loan to how to treat sick people.


DP-100 Azure Machine Learning In Python-Basic To Advance

#artificialintelligence

This course has been designed keeping in mind entry level Data Scientists or no background in programming. This course will also help the data scientists and python developers to learn the AzureML . This course is designed based on latest changes done in DP-100 Certification. This course would also be useful for the experts who needs to know how to create and deploy a machine learning environment in production. Will train machine learning and deep learning algorithm in azure ml in local machine and same code will be executed in azure as well.


Music Genre Classification using Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

What is powering the onslaught of Artificial Intelligence in every industry across the world? In very simple words, you teach the machine how to derive results. The results purely depend on algorithms used and the data that is poured to train/teach the machine. Machine learning is being used to power recommendation systems, audio/video classification software, autonomous driving, and many more industrial processes. There are 97 million songs in the world, now these are just the songs that are documented.
