Reinforcement learning (RL) is a machine learning (ML) paradigm that is capable of optimizing sequential decisions. RL is interesting because it mimics how we, as humans, learn. We are instinctively capable of learning strategies that help us master complex tasks like riding a bike or taking a mathematics exam. RL attempts to copy this process by interacting with the environment to learn strategies. Recently, businesses have been applying ML algorithms to make one-shot decisions. These are trained upon data to make the best decision at the time.
Dr. Nisha Talagala is a world-renowned computer scientist and an expert in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The inspiration to write this book started with her experiences sharing the power of AI technology with her then 9 year old daughter. She found that there were not many resources available for kids to learn and interact with AIs in a way that is engaging and not intimidating. She found that, with the right tools and approach, kids can learn AI, become empowered, and create amazing innovations. Just like computer science and coding is an integral part of learning today, AI is required learning for all the professionals of tomorrow.
This Learning Path is your guide to understanding OpenCV concepts and algorithms through real-world examples and activities. Through various projects, you'll also discover how to use complex computer vision and machine learning algorithms and face detection to extract the maximum amount of information from images and videos. In later chapters, you'll learn to enhance your videos and images with optical flow analysis and background subtraction. Sections in the Learning Path will help you get to grips with text segmentation and recognition, in addition to guiding you through the basics of the new and improved deep learning modules. By the end of this Learning Path, you will have mastered commonly used computer vision techniques to build OpenCV projects from scratch.

Today, I am happy to announce that you can now use Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth to generate labeled synthetic image data. Building machine learning (ML) models is an iterative process that, at a high level, starts with data collection and preparation, followed by model training and model deployment. And especially the first step, collecting large, diverse, and accurately labeled datasets for your model training, is often challenging and time-consuming. Let's take computer vision (CV) applications as an example. CV applications have come to play a key role in the industrial landscape.
We are excited to bring Transform 2022 back in-person July 19 and virtually July 20 - 28. Join AI and data leaders for insightful talks and exciting networking opportunities. For IKEA, the latest in digital transformation is all about home design driven by artificial intelligence (AI) – minus the home furnishing and decor retailer's famous Swedish meatballs. Today, it launched IKEA Kreativ, a design experience meant to bridge the ecommerce and in-store customer journeys, powered by the latest AI developments in spatial computing, machine learning and 3D mixed reality technologies. Available in-app and online, IKEA Kreativ's core technology was developed by Geomagical Labs, an IKEA retail company, which Ingka Group (the holding company that controls 367 stores of 422 IKEA stores) acquired in April 2020. IKEA Kreativ is the next step in IKEA's long journey towards digital transformation.
According to Gartner, hyperautomation is the number one trend in 2022 and will continue advancing in future. One of the main barriers to hyperautomation is in areas where we're still struggling to reduce human involvement. Intelligent systems have a hard time matching human visual recognition abilities, despite great advancements in deep learning in computer vision. This is mainly due to the lack of annotated data (or when data is sparse) and in areas such as quality control, where trained human eyes still dominate. Another reason is the feasibility of human access in all areas of the product supply chain, such as quality control inspection on the production line.
My infatuation with computers began with an Apple II in 1981. I've been active in machine learning since 2003, and deep learning since before AlexNet was a thing. My background includes a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Colorado, Boulder (deep learning), and an M.S. in physics from Michigan State University. By day, I work in industry building deep learning systems. By night, I type away on my keyboard generating the books you see here.
