eXtremely Boost your machine learning Exercises (Part-1)

#artificialintelligence

Exercise 5 To check model performance calculate test set classification error. Exercise 7 Use xgb.train() instead of xgboost() to add both train and test sets as a watchlist. Exercise 9 Plot how AUC and Log Loss for train and test sets was changing during training process. Exercise 10 Check how setting parameter eta to 0.01 influences the AUC and Log Loss curves.


Futurist Ray Kurzweil Isn't Worried About Technology Stealing Your Job

In this case, Musk says he fears artificial intelligence will lead to World War III because nations will compete for A.I. Have you tried to build models for predicting politics or world events? Things that happened in the 20th century like World War I, World War II, the Cold War, and the Great Depression had no effect on these very smooth trajectories for technology. We have already eliminated all jobs several times in human history.


AI is creating jobs and increasing sales, says Capgemini report

#artificialintelligence

Four out of five companies have created new jobs as a result of artificial intelligence (AI) technology, according to new research from consulting firm Capgemini. The report Turning AI into concrete value: the successful implementers' toolkit, surveyed nearly 1,000 organisations that are implementing artificial intelligence (AI), either as a pilot or at scale. The study found that tech-savvy businesses are using AI to increase sales, facilitate customer engagement and generate business insights. The customer experience is a big focus of AI adopters: 73% think AI can increase customer satisfaction scores and 65% believe it could reduce future customer churn.



Computer Age Statistical Inference: Algorithms, Evidence and Data Science

@machinelearnbot

The twenty-first century has seen a breathtaking expansion of statistical methodology, both in scope and in influence. "Big data," "data science," and "machine learning" have become familiar terms in the news, as statistical methods are brought to bear upon the enormous data sets of modern science and commerce. This book takes us on a journey through the revolution in data analysis following the introduction of electronic computation in the 1950s. The book integrates methodology and algorithms with statistical inference, and ends with speculation on the future direction of statistics and data science.


A.I. Pioneer Says Tech Monopolies Are 'Dangerous for Democracy' - Breitbart

#artificialintelligence

This "Canadian Mafia" of artificial intelligence visionaries is largely responsible for the tech industry's leap into machine learning. These are the companies that can use AI to create even better AI, embarrass China at their oldest game, police Twitter, or give your next iPhone a brain. Bengio believes that we must "create a more level playing field for people and companies," though "AI is a technology that naturally lends itself to a winner take all."

Building 31 powers back up

MIT News

Professor Jonathan How from the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AeroAstro) describes the space as "one of the largest custom-designed, dedicated spaces for robotics research that I am aware of in academia." Building 31, officially known as the Sloan Laboratories for Aircraft and Automotive Engines, originally opened in 1928 as a single-story home for MIT's internal combustion engine research, funded by General Motors CEO Alfred P. Sloan Jr., Class of 1895. AeroAstro Professor Zoltán Spakovszky, director of the Gas Turbine Lab, which has been an anchor tenant of Building 31 since 1947, says: "The refurbished engine test cells and upgraded motor drive system for our de Laval wind tunnel and air system will greatly support our research." As students, faculty, and staff make their way back into the refurbished building over the coming weeks, excitement is high.

Antoine Blondeau's Sentient Technologies: AI For The Unknown Unknowns

#artificialintelligence

Right now, the conversion rate optimization, CRO, industry, is based on AB testing, where you test a new design against an old design. "Moments are equivalent to when a sales associate in a brick and mortar store is extremely effective at creating a sale. With our product, Aware, we are relating what happens in a brick and mortar store, giving consumers a real time set of options that make sense to the consumer and taking that online," says Blondeau. From here, Antoine was hired away to join a San Francisco based company Dejima as CEO.
