Computing students seek out applications of AI - BCIT News

#artificialintelligence

"Generative adversarial network" and "deep convolutional neural network": the terms sound daunting, but behind them lies potential for AI to positively impact human lives. The BCIT class of 2019 Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AIML) Option students in the Computer Systems Technology Diploma program recently wrapped a year of specialty study with their project demos. Led by Option Head Dr. Chi En Huang, students took on public datasets from the City of Vancouver Open Data Portal, and chose an angle to tackle with AIML. They were tasked with developing a machine learning solution that could use the various datasets to answer questions, create meaning, form insights, and inspire action. "Defining a use case is the first step in a project like this, maybe also the hardest. That is, what can we try to gain from this data?"


Google taps AI to improve news results in Search

#artificialintelligence

Google says it's implementing AI and machine learning techniques to improve story suggestions in Google Search. In a blog post this morning, the tech giant announced that users in the U.S. in English (with more languages and locations to come in the next few months) who search for a news topic will now see an article carousel at the top of the results page. When there are multiple stories related to a search, each will be organized by relevance and quality in a way that accounts for a diversity of perspectives. "People come to Search for all types of information to help them form a better understanding of the world and the topics they care about most," wrote Google Search product manager Duncan Osborn. "We've continued to bring new improvements to Search to help people better orient themselves around a topic and easily explore related ideas, so they can more quickly go from having a question in mind to developing deeper understanding … Our research has shown that clustering results into clearly-defined stories is critical in helping people easily navigate the results and identify the best content for their needs."

Why are so many AI systems named after Muppets?

#artificialintelligence

One of the biggest trends in AI recently has been the creation of machine learning models that can generate the written word with unprecedented fluidity. These programs are game-changers, potentially supercharging computers' ability to parse and produce language. But something that's gone largely unnoticed is a secondary trend -- a shadow to the first -- and that is: a surprising number of these tools are named after Muppets. To date, this new breed of language AIs includes an ELMo, a BERT, a Grover, a Big BIRD, a Rosita, a RoBERTa, at least two ERNIEs (three if you include ERNIE 2.0), and a KERMIT. Big tech players like Google, Facebook, and the Allen Institute for AI are all involved, and the craze has global reach, with Chinese search giant Baidu and Beijing's Tsinghua University contributing models.


All-in-one chips seen boosting computer power for artificial intelligence needs

#artificialintelligence

Researchers at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and Israeli chipmaker TowerJazz said they have developed a "revolutionary" technology that transforms a commercial flash memory chip into a device that contains both memory and computing ability. This will help provide the computing power needed for artificial intelligence-based applications, the researchers said. The new device enables the creation of a "hardware neural network" inspired by the operation of the human brain, and will "significantly" accelerate the operation of AI-based computing, the Technion said in a statement.

"We have taken an existing commercial technology and made a small change, transforming it into something that is very much needed."


How artificial intelligence is shifting the model risk management landscape

#artificialintelligence

Without risk, there are no rewards. Financial institutions, by their very nature, are risk-taking entities. They have to balance the risk against the potential benefits for the good of their investors, shareholders and members. Today, banks and financial institutions are deploying model risk management (MRM) solutions that are more sophisticated and varied than ever before. The number of models is also rising dramatically, according to analyst McKinsey – 10 per cent to 25 per cent annually at large institutions – as banks utilise models for an ever-widening scope of decision making.

Handy Data Visualization Functions in matplotlib & Seaborn to Speed Up Your EDA

There aren't any non-numerical columns in this dataset, but oftentimes, there will be plenty of data cleaning, binarizing, checking datatypes, and more to do. But that's not the focus of this post, so let's assume that has all been done. Now we're ready to do some plots! Let's start with a quick look at the Pearson correlation coefficients. Visualizing on a heatmap is a nice way to go for this task and I hate looking at the redundant half of the ordinary correlation heatmap, so let's also mask half of it with a white upper triangle.


Alibaba Cloud Releases Alink Machine Learning Platform on GitHub CDOTrends

#artificialintelligence

Alibaba Cloud (Alibaba) has released the source code its Alink machine learning platform on GitHub. Developed by Alibaba, Alink offers a broad range of algorithm libraries that support both batch and stream processing, vital for machine learning tasks such as online product recommendation and intelligent customer services. According to Alibaba, Alink was developed based on Flink, a unified distributed computing engine. With seamless unification of batch and stream processing, Alibaba says Alink offers a more effective platform for developers to perform data analytics and machine learning tasks. The platform supports open-source data storage such as Kafka, HDFS and HBase, as well as Alibaba's proprietary data storage format.
