Writer identification for historical handwritten documents using a single feature extraction method


The digitization of historical handwritten document images is important for the preservation of cultural heritage. Moreover, the transcription of text images obtained from digitization is necessary to provide efficient information access to the content of these documents. Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) has become an important research topic in the areas of image and computational language ... [Show full abstract] processing that allows us to obtain transcriptions from text images. State-of-the-art HTR systems are, however, far from perfect. One difficulty is that they have to cope with image noise and handwriting variability.

Use Machine Learning and GridDB to build a Production-Ready Stock Market Anomaly Detector


In this project, we use GridDB to create a Machine Learning platform where we Kafka is used to import stock market data from Alphavantage, a market data provider. Tensorflow and Keras train a model that is then stored in GridDB, and then finally uses LSTM prediction to find anomalies in daily intraday trading history. The last piece is that the data is visualized in Grafana and then we configure GridDB to send notifications via its REST Trigger function to Twilio's Sendgrid. The actual machine learning portion of this project was inspired by posts on Towards Data Science and Curiously. This model and the data flow is also applicable to many other datasets such as predictive maintenance or machine failure prediction or wherever you want to find anomalies in time series data.

A Literature Review of Recent Graph Embedding Techniques for Biomedical Data Artificial Intelligence

With the rapid development of biomedical software and hardware, a large amount of relational data interlinking genes, proteins, chemical components, drugs, diseases, and symptoms has been collected for modern biomedical research. Many graph-based learning methods have been proposed to analyze such type of data, giving a deeper insight into the topology and knowledge behind the biomedical data, which greatly benefit to both academic research and industrial application for human healthcare. However, the main difficulty is how to handle high dimensionality and sparsity of the biomedical graphs. Recently, graph embedding methods provide an effective and efficient way to address the above issues. It converts graph-based data into a low dimensional vector space where the graph structural properties and knowledge information are well preserved. In this survey, we conduct a literature review of recent developments and trends in applying graph embedding methods for biomedical data. We also introduce important applications and tasks in the biomedical domain as well as associated public biomedical datasets.

Mining Knowledge Graphs From Incident Reports Artificial Intelligence

Incident management is a critical part of the DevOps processes for developing and operating large-scale services in the cloud. Incident reports filed by customers are largely unstructured making any automated diagnosis or mitigation non-trivial. It requires on-call engineers to parse verbose reports to understand the issue and locate key information. Prior work has looked into extraction of key attributes or entities like error codes, tenant Ids, stack traces, etc. from incident and bug reports. Although a flat list of entities is informative, to unlock the full potential of knowledge extraction, it is necessary to provide context to these entities. For instance, the relations between the real-world concepts or objects that these entities represent in otherwise unstructured data is useful for downstream tasks like incident linking, triaging and mitigation. With this additional context, entities are transformed from "Strings" to "Things". In this work, we present an approach to mine and score binary entity relations from co-occurring entity pairs. We evaluate binary relations extracted and show that our approach has a high precision of 0.9. Further, we construct knowledge graphs automatically and show that the implicit knowledge in the graph can be used to mine and rank relevant entities for distinct incidents, by mapping entities to clusters of incident titles.

System Design for a Data-driven and Explainable Customer Sentiment Monitor Artificial Intelligence

The most important goal of customer services is to keep the customer satisfied. However, service resources are always limited and must be prioritized. Therefore, it is important to identify customers who potentially become unsatisfied and might lead to escalations. Today this prioritization of customers is often done manually. Data science on IoT data (esp. log data) for machine health monitoring, as well as analytics on enterprise data for customer relationship management (CRM) have mainly been researched and applied independently. In this paper, we present a framework for a data-driven decision support system which combines IoT and enterprise data to model customer sentiment. Such decision support systems can help to prioritize customers and service resources to effectively troubleshoot problems or even avoid them. The framework is applied in a real-world case study with a major medical device manufacturer. This includes a fully automated and interpretable machine learning pipeline designed to meet the requirements defined with domain experts and end users. The overall framework is currently deployed, learns and evaluates predictive models from terabytes of IoT and enterprise data to actively monitor the customer sentiment for a fleet of thousands of high-end medical devices. Furthermore, we provide an anonymized industrial benchmark dataset for the research community.

PyHealth: A Python Library for Health Predictive Models Artificial Intelligence

Despite the explosion of interest in healthcare AI research, the reproducibility and benchmarking of those research works are often limited due to the lack of standard benchmark datasets and diverse evaluation metrics. To address this reproducibility challenge, we develop PyHealth, an open-source Python toolbox for developing various predictive models on healthcare data. PyHealth consists of data preprocessing module, predictive modeling module, and evaluation module. The target users of PyHealth are both computer science researchers and healthcare data scientists. With PyHealth, they can conduct complex machine learning pipelines on healthcare datasets with fewer than ten lines of code. The data preprocessing module enables the transformation of complex healthcare datasets such as longitudinal electronic health records, medical images, continuous signals (e.g., electrocardiogram), and clinical notes into machine learning friendly formats. The predictive modeling module provides more than 30 machine learning models, including established ensemble trees and deep neural network-based approaches, via a unified but extendable API designed for both researchers and practitioners. The evaluation module provides various evaluation strategies (e.g., cross-validation and train-validation-test split) and predictive model metrics. With robustness and scalability in mind, best practices such as unit testing, continuous integration, code coverage, and interactive examples are introduced in the library's development.

Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI): An Engineering Perspective Artificial Intelligence

The remarkable advancements in Deep Learning (DL) algorithms have fueled enthusiasm for using Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies in almost every domain; however, the opaqueness of these algorithms put a question mark on their applications in safety-critical systems. In this regard, the `explainability' dimension is not only essential to both explain the inner workings of black-box algorithms, but it also adds accountability and transparency dimensions that are of prime importance for regulators, consumers, and service providers. eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) is the set of techniques and methods to convert the so-called black-box AI algorithms to white-box algorithms, where the results achieved by these algorithms and the variables, parameters, and steps taken by the algorithm to reach the obtained results, are transparent and explainable. To complement the existing literature on XAI, in this paper, we take an `engineering' approach to illustrate the concepts of XAI. We discuss the stakeholders in XAI and describe the mathematical contours of XAI from engineering perspective. Then we take the autonomous car as a use-case and discuss the applications of XAI for its different components such as object detection, perception, control, action decision, and so on. This work is an exploratory study to identify new avenues of research in the field of XAI.
