Top 10 Python Data Science Libraries - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Python continues to lead the way when it comes to Machine Learning, AI, Deep Learning and Data Science tasks. Because of this, we've decided to start a series investigating the top Python libraries across several categories: Of course, these lists are entirely subjective as many libraries could easily place in multiple categories. Now, let's get onto the list (GitHub figures correct as of November 16th, 2018): "pandas is a Python package providing fast, flexible, and expressive data structures designed to make working with "relational" or "labeled" data both easy and intuitive. It aims to be the fundamental high-level building block for doing practical, real world data analysis in Python." "Matplotlib is a Python 2D plotting library which produces publication-quality figures in a variety of hardcopy formats and interactive environments across platforms. Matplotlib can be used in Python scripts, the Python and IPython shell (à la MATLAB or Mathematica), web application servers, and various graphical user interface toolkits."


Improving customer service with an intelligent virtual assistant using IBM Watson

#artificialintelligence

Gartner predicts that "by 2022, 70 percent of white-collar workers will interact with conversational platforms on a daily basis." As a result, the research group found that more organizations are investing in chatbot development and deployment. IBM Business Partners like Sopra Steria are making chatbot and virtual assistant technology available to businesses. Sopra Steria, a European leader in digital transformation, has developed an intelligent virtual assistant for organizations across several industries who want to use an AI conversational interface to answer recurrent customer service questions. In developing our solution, we at Sopra Steria were looking for AI technology that was easy to configure and could support multiple languages and complex dialogs.


The four most common fallacies about AI

#artificialintelligence

The history of artificial intelligence has been marked by repeated cycles of extreme optimism and promise followed by disillusionment and disappointment. Today's AI systems can perform complicated tasks in a wide range of areas, such as mathematics, games, and photorealistic image generation. But some of the early goals of AI like housekeeper robots and self-driving cars continue to recede as we approach them. Part of the continued cycle of missing these goals is due to incorrect assumptions about AI and natural intelligence, according to Melanie Mitchell, Davis Professor of Complexity at the Santa Fe Institute and author of Artificial Intelligence: A Guide For Thinking Humans. In a new paper titled "Why AI is Harder Than We Think," Mitchell lays out four common fallacies about AI that cause misunderstandings not only among the public and the media, but also among experts.


What is Neural Search? - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

TL;DR: Neural Search is a new approach to retrieving information using neural networks. Traditional techniques to search typically meant writing rules to "understand" the data being searched and return the best results. But with neural search, developers don't need to wrack their brains for these rules; The system learns the rules by itself and gets better as it goes along. Even developers who don't know machine learning can quickly build a search engine using open-source frameworks such as Jina. There is a massive amount of data on the web; how can we effectively search through it for relevant information?


The AI-Powered Micro-Business with Ash Fontana

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence is already part of our lives in the tools and services we use every day. As AI development accelerates, how can authors and small businesses use it as leverage to expand income and opportunities? Ash Fontana gives some ideas in this interview on The AI-First Company.


Question Generation using Natural Language processing

#artificialintelligence

This course focuses on using state-of-the-art Natural Language processing techniques to solve the problem of question generation in edtech. If we pick up any middle school textbook, at the end of every chapter we see assessment questions like MCQs, True/False questions, Fill-in-the-blanks, Match the following, etc. In this course, we will see how we can take any text content and generate these assessment questions using NLP techniques. This course will be a very practical use case of NLP where we put basic algorithms like word vectors (word2vec, Glove, etc) to recent advancements like BERT, openAI GPT-2, and T5 transformers to real-world use. We will use NLP libraries like Spacy, NLTK, AllenNLP, HuggingFace transformers, etc.


Explainable Artificial Intelligence for Human Decision-Support System in Medical Domain

#artificialintelligence

In the present paper we present the potential of Explainable Artificial Intelligence methods for decision-support in medical image analysis scenarios. With three types of explainable methods applied to the same medical image data set our aim was to improve the comprehensibility of the decisions provided by the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). The visual explanations were provided on in-vivo gastral images obtained from a Video capsule endoscopy (VCE), with the goal of increasing the health professionals' trust in the black box predictions. We implemented two post-hoc interpretable machine learning methods LIME and SHAP and the alternative explanation approach CIU, centered on the Contextual Value and Utility (CIU). The produced explanations were evaluated using human evaluation.
