Artificial Intelligence Revolution Will Make Many Jobs Obsolete

#artificialintelligence

From personal digital assistants to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence is quickly gaining ground with the technology promising increased productivity, efficiency and safety. Proponents believe AI will allow humans more time to be creative. But others caution that a device near you may end up doing your job. The movies are full of scary robots. From the Discovery One's sentient computer HAL 9000 in "2001: A Space Odyssey" to the humanoid robot Ava in "Ex-Machina," artificial intelligence regularly goes haywire, running amok and often leading to the downfall of any human standing in its way.

My interest in ml stems back to 2014 when I started reading articles about it on Hacker News. I simply found the idea of teaching machines stuff by looking at data appealing. At the time I wasn't even a professional developer, but a hobby coder who'd done a couple of small projects. So I began watching the first few chapters of Udacity's Supervised Learning course, while also reading all articles I came across on the subject. This gave me a little bit of conceptual understanding, though no practical skills.

Then we invite you to check out this very friendly introduction we made at Udacity! There are actually 19 videos included in this playlist, covering topics like Linear Regression, Neural Networks, Hierarchical Clustering, and more. Really got the Machine Learning fever? Then consider enrolling in our Machine Learning Nanodegree program. It's the best way to learn everything you need to know to become a successful Machine Learning Engineer!


My Machine Learning Journey: Introduction

#artificialintelligence

I finally cracked and decided to shove everything in my personal life aside for the next few months to take on Udacity's Machine Learning Nanodegree Program. On second thought, beer, you should stay. I might require a cheerleader. Jokes aside, I've had my eyes on this program for quite some time. After hearing a few strong endorsements from friends and colleagues, I seriously started to consider diving in.


An Overview of 3 Popular Courses on Deep Learning

The second part teaches cutting edge research work like generative networks, GAN's, Sequence to Sequence Models, how to read research papers and lot of practical tips on how to stay ahead in the deep learning space which is evolving at a tremendous speed. The 2nd part of the course introduces to cutting edge research by helping you to read, understand and implement various research papers in the space of generative models, image segmentation and sequence2sequence models. You learn to build interesting projects like Style Transfer, Low Resolution Images to High Resolution Images, GAN, Image Segmentations, Language translation and how to apply DL on structured data. Andrew Ng was a professor at Stanford university, co-founded Coursera, founded and led the Google Brain deep learning project and was chief scientist at Baidu.

Student Experience Lead - Digital Marketing

#artificialintelligence

Focused on self-empowerment through learning, Udacity is making innovative technologies such as self-driving cars available to a global community of aspiring technologists, while also enabling learners at all levels to skill up with essentials like programming, web and app development. A Student Experience Lead is a educational strategist and program manager in one, with a strong pedagogical sense. You should take pride in ensuring that the students in your Nanodegree program receive the best possible learning experience. This specific Lead will take care of our Digital Marketing Nanodegree program and deal with the most exciting community of students in Brazil.

Google's self-driving car outfit shacked up with Intel to give its cars the brains they need to drive safely. The AI expert, who launched Google's self-driving car project in 2009, didn't explain the dog. He did announce that his online education company, Udacity, is launching a "nanodegree" program for wannabe flying car engineers. And he noted that since Udacity started its self-driving car engineer course a year ago, it has enrolled more than 10,000 students eager to help build the future of transportation.


Google X's online course teaches you to build flying cars

'Our students will develop the software skills and conceptual understanding necessary to build a flight system for an autonomous flight vehicle that can reliably complete complex missions in urban environments,' the firm said. 'Our students will develop the software skills and conceptual understanding necessary to build a flight system for an autonomous flight vehicle that can reliably complete complex missions in urban environments,' the firm wrote. Thrun, who used to work at Google before leaving to set up his flying-vehicle firm, Kitty Hawk, said he envisions a world where he can fly the 34-mile (55 km) journey from Palo Alto to San Francisco in just ten minutes.

Lyft offers 400 scholarships for online self-driving car course

Even better, Udacity has partnered with Lyft (which has self-driving plans of its own) to provide scholarships to the intro course in order to increase diversity to the program. In addition, Lyft will provide mentorship opportunities through its lyf, which is where the company houses its self-driving division. The nanodegree itself will cover topics like "machine learning, object-oriented programming and probabilistic robotics." Of course, if self-driving cars aren't your thing, you can always enroll in Udacity's new Flying Car nanodegree (which really focuses more on drones than actual airborne autos).
