Introduction to Machine Learning with Python's Scikit-learn Codementor

#artificialintelligence

In this post, we'll be doing a step-by-step walkthrough of a basic machine learning project, geared toward people with some knowledge of programming (preferably Python), but who don't have much experience with machine learning. By the end of this post, you'll understand what machine learning is, how it can help you, and be able to build your own machine learning classifiers for any dataset you want. We'll teach a computer how to distinguish between "clickbait" headlines and "normal" headlines, where the former are those irritating "You won't believe what X does to Y" type headlines that deliberately withhold information to try to make people click on the article. Traditionally, to write such a classifier, we would manually inspect hundreds of clickbait headlines and try to identify patterns to differentiate them from "good" headlines. We would then write a script with a lot of hand-crafted rules that tries to discriminate between clickbait headlines and good ones.


Future Society: 'Gradual Adaption to the Changes Brought by AI Into Our Lives'

UK authorities want to expand the use of AI, to introduce robots into health care and allow self-driving cars, among other things. The draft plan includes educating workers to operate AI and promoting the use of AI to businesses and supporting research in this sphere. "It is important to involve people in this process by increasing the education of postgraduate students thus preparing the younger generation to handle these techniques," Angelo Cangelosi said. "The UK is at the forefront of AI and robotics research. We have a large network of artificial intelligence robotics and an autonomous systems network.


Introduction to Numpy -1 : An absolute beginners guide to Machine Learning and Data science.

@machinelearnbot

Numpy is a math library for python. It enables us to do computation efficiently and effectively. It is better than regular python because of it's amazing capabilities. In this article I'm just going to introduce you to the basics of what is mostly required for machine learning and datascience. I'm not going to cover everything that's possible with numpy library.


Should artificial intelligence have freedom of choice?

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence systems are starting to think "like humans" rather than just calculating potential options, but might their full exploitation trigger some liability risks? As anticipated, IoTItaly, the Italian Association on the Internet of Things of which I am one of the founders, ran an event in collaboration with STMicroelectronics named "Creativity and technology at the time of Industry 4.0" on 30 May 2017. I found fascinating the video below that tries to explain Google's DeepMind system. As mentioned in the video, the "symbolic" event which is considered the moment when machines started to be "intuitive" is the victory of the AlphaGo artificial intelligence system against a master of the ancient Chinese game Go. DeepMind is the evolution of such approach.


How dating apps like Tinder are changing societies

Daily Mail

While online dating used to be somewhat taboo, millions of people around the world are now using apps and websites to find love. And a new study indicates that online dating is even impacting the nature of society. Researchers suggest that this new way of looking for love is connecting communities in novel ways, and even leads to more interracial and stable marriage. A new study indicates that online dating is even impacting the nature of society. In their study, the researchers simulated what happened when extra links are introduced into a social network made up of men and women from different races.


Transition of Siri's Voice From Robotic to Human: Note the Difference - DZone AI

This is because Apple is digging deeper into the technology of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning to offer the best personal assistant experience to its users. While several advancements have been made to the basic models of unit selection and parametric synthesis, deep learning has penetrated into it deeper. Apple utilizes the power of deep learning in hybrid unit selection systems in order to get the highest-quality voice output for Siri. Once they decided to work rigorously to improve Siri's voice, engineers at Apple worked with a female voice actor to record 20 hours of speech in US accent English.


The way strangers meet via dating websites is changing society in unexpected ways, say researchers

But if the researchers add random links between people from different ethnic groups, the level of interracial marriage changes dramatically. "Our model predicts nearly complete racial integration upon the emergence of online dating, even if the number of partners that individuals meet from newly formed ties is small," say Ortega and Hergovich. "Our model also predicts that marriages created in a society with online dating tend to be stronger," they say. "It is intriguing that shortly after the introduction of the first dating websites in 1995, like Match.com, the percentage of new marriages created by interracial couples increased rapidly," say the researchers.


Applied Machine Learning: The Less Confusing Guide

#artificialintelligence

ML essentially aims to understand patterns in large sets of input data and then predict outputs based on the models it generate. The goal of machine learning is to properly train ML algorithms to create such models. Follow this tutorial to learn four techniques used to prepare a linear regression model: Simple Linear Regression, Ordinary Least Squares, Gradient Descent and Regularization. One of the most exciting features of deep learning is its performance in feature learning; the algorithms perform particularly well in being able to detect features from raw data.

His current research interests are Machine Learning and Cryptography. Nowadays, he enjoys speaking to communities about these disciplines, also blogging and creating online courses related to his research interests.


Certificate in Introduction to Data Mining and Machine Learning using Python

@machinelearnbot

This is a programming oriented, hands-on training for starting a career in Data Mining and Machine Learning, and to acquire the necessary skills in statistical and inferential thinking. After this course, many of the things you read and hear about Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning would make a lot more sense. The applications of this field span from marketing analysis and forecasts, predicting demands for products, making intelligent business decisions, cyber security and threat detection, predicting poll and survey results, and too many others to mention here. This course will enable participants to learn the foundation skills through programming, in arguably the most popular Data Science language today--Python.
