Are A Conscious Artificial Intelligence & Smart Robots Possible?

#artificialintelligence

Dr Anurag Yadav - Web Searches, Google Translate, Voice Assistants like Alexa and Siri, fraud alerts from credit-card companies, Amazon recommendations, Spotify playlists, traffic directions, weather forecasts are all taken for granted. All are powered by AI. But are they not just copying machines that have learned to do specific things by being trained on thousands or millions of correct answers?

Research Progress of News Recommendation Methods

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Due to researchers'aim to study personalized recommendations for different business fields, the summary of recommendation methods in specific fields is of practical significance. News recommendation systems were the earliest research field regarding recommendation systems, and were also the earliest recommendation field to apply the collaborative filtering method. In addition, news is real-time and rich in content, which makes news recommendation methods more challenging than in other fields. Thus, this paper summarizes the research progress regarding news recommendation methods. From 2018 to 2020, developed news recommendation methods were mainly deep learning-based, attention-based, and knowledge graphs-based. As of 2020, there are many news recommendation methods that combine attention mechanisms and knowledge graphs. However, these methods were all developed based on basic methods (the collaborative filtering method, the content-based recommendation method, and a mixed recommendation method combining the two). In order to allow researchers to have a detailed understanding of the development process of news recommendation methods, the news recommendation methods surveyed in this paper, which cover nearly 10 years, are divided into three categories according to the abovementioned basic methods. Firstly, the paper introduces the basic ideas of each category of methods and then summarizes the recommendation methods that are combined with other methods based on each category of methods and according to the time sequence of research results. Finally, this paper also summarizes the challenges confronting news recommendation systems.


Gunrock 2.0: A User Adaptive Social Conversational System

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Gunrock 2.0 is built on top of Gunrock with an emphasis on user adaptation. Gunrock 2.0 combines various neural natural language understanding modules, including named entity detection, linking, and dialog act prediction, to improve user understanding. Its dialog management is a hierarchical model that handles various topics, such as movies, music, and sports. The system-level dialog manager can handle question detection, acknowledgment, error handling, and additional functions, making downstream modules much easier to design and implement. The dialog manager also adapts its topic selection to accommodate different users' profile information, such as inferred gender and personality. The generation model is a mix of templates and neural generation models. Gunrock 2.0 is able to achieve an average rating of 3.73 at its latest build from May 29th to June 4th.

The Future of Education: Can AI Make Us Smarter? - ReadWrite

#artificialintelligence

Whether you realize it or not, AI has found its way into our daily life. The best examples are your smartphone's virtual assistant and Netflix's recommendation system. AI has also crept its way into education. Students use AI to improve their learning, while teachers leverage it for online assessment and identifying students' strengths and weaknesses. As we look at the future of education, we must ask the question: can AI make us smarter?


J-Recs: Principled and Scalable Recommendation Justification

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Online recommendation is an essential functionality across a variety of services, including e-commerce and video streaming, where items to buy, watch, or read are suggested to users. Justifying recommendations, i.e., explaining why a user might like the recommended item, has been shown to improve user satisfaction and persuasiveness of the recommendation. In this paper, we develop a method for generating post-hoc justifications that can be applied to the output of any recommendation algorithm. Existing post-hoc methods are often limited in providing diverse justifications, as they either use only one of many available types of input data, or rely on the predefined templates. We address these limitations of earlier approaches by developing J-Recs, a method for producing concise and diverse justifications. J-Recs is a recommendation model-agnostic method that generates diverse justifications based on various types of product and user data (e.g., purchase history and product attributes). The challenge of jointly processing multiple types of data is addressed by designing a principled graph-based approach for justification generation. In addition to theoretical analysis, we present an extensive evaluation on synthetic and real-world data. Our results show that J-Recs satisfies desirable properties of justifications, and efficiently produces effective justifications, matching user preferences up to 20% more accurately than baselines.


How Spotify uses Machine Learning?

#artificialintelligence

Spotify is the largest on-demand music services in the world and has 299 million monthly users, including 138 million paying subscribers. One of the exciting features of the Spotify is Discover Weekly. It's a custom mixtape of 30 songs they've never listened to before but will probably love, and it's pretty much magic. Songza used to curate playlists manually in the early 2000s which was not able to fulfil the music needs of the consumers as it was developed as on specific interest of the curator. Pandora used tagging the songs manually with attributes like'folk', 'rock' and curating playlist with similar tags using the code. Collaborative filtering: It works by comparing people with similar tastes.


Submodular Bandit Problem Under Multiple Constraints

arXiv.org Machine Learning

The linear submodular bandit problem was proposed to simultaneously address diversified retrieval and online learning in a recommender system. If there is no uncertainty, this problem is equivalent to a submodular maximization problem under a cardinality constraint. However, in some situations, recommendation lists should satisfy additional constraints such as budget constraints, other than a cardinality constraint. Thus, motivated by diversified retrieval considering budget constraints, we introduce a submodular bandit problem under the intersection of $l$ knapsacks and a $k$-system constraint. Here $k$-system constraints form a very general class of constraints including cardinality constraints and the intersection of $k$ matroid constraints. To solve this problem, we propose a non-greedy algorithm that adaptively focuses on a standard or modified upper-confidence bound. We provide a high-probability upper bound of an approximation regret, where the approximation ratio matches that of a fast offline algorithm. Moreover, we perform experiments under various combinations of constraints using a synthetic and two real-world datasets and demonstrate that our proposed methods outperform the existing baselines.


8 Examples of Artificial Intelligence in our Everyday Lives

#artificialintelligence

The applications of artificial intelligence have grown over the past decade. Here are examples of artificial intelligence that we use in our everyday lives. The words artificial intelligence may seem like a far-off concept that has nothing to do with us. But the truth is that we encounter several examples of artificial intelligence in our daily lives. From Netflix's movie recommendation to Amazon's Alexa, we now rely on various AI models without knowing it.

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is a sub-field of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning algorithms are usually categorized as supervised or unsupervised. Artificial Intelligence is a branch of computer science that endeavors to replicate or simulate human intelligence in a machine, so machines can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. Some programmable functions of AI systems include planning, learning, reasoning, problem-solving, and decision making.
