Understanding Convolutional Neural Networks through Visualizations in PyTorch

#artificialintelligence

Before learning about convolutional neural networks, one must be good with the workings of a neural network. Neural Networks imitate human brains to solve complex problems and to find patterns in the given data. Over the past few years, these have engulfed many machine learning and computer vision algorithms. The basic model, in this case, a "Neural Network" consists of neurons organized in different layers. Every Neural Network has an input and an output layer, with many hidden layers augmented to it based on the complexity of the problem.


Human Capital Management Technology May Be 'Demo Candy' - InformationWeek

#artificialintelligence

AI is finding its way to more places in organizations, including human resources. Human capital management providers are building AI into their solutions, but depending on the details, it may be wiser to build your own application than buy something off-the-shelf. Earlier this year, Gartner issued a research note exploring AI use cases in human capital management (HCM). Its author, VP Analyst Helen Poitevin, concluded that many of these applications were still in the "demo candy" stage, mainly to demonstrate product roadmaps. In other words, AI-related expectations are outpacing reality.


Cox Media Group chooses Veritone for AI-Driven advertising analytics - VanillaPlus - The global voice of Telecoms IT

#artificialintelligence

Veritone Inc., the creator of the operating system for artificial intelligence, aiWARE, announced that Cox Media Group (CMG) has selected the aiWARE-powered Veritone Essentials suite of applications to use across its 60 radio stations in 11 markets. CMG Radio is the latest major broadcast group to join leading broadcasters and thousands of stations in deploying Veritone's applications to streamline content curation and demonstrate ROI for advertisers. CMG Radio uses the Essentials applications to provide AI-powered analytics and insights for both its local direct-sales teams and its national advertising partners. Additionally, the CMG Radio content team leverages the Discovery application to generate insights more efficiently and choose which on-air content should be extended to digital mediums such as social media. "Veritone's industry-leading AI platform will help CMG offer better, more effective marketing solutions to our customers by providing data and insight that has previously not existed in the broadcast space," says Tim Clarke, vice president of audience and content, CMG Radio.


Identity access management at a crossroads

#artificialintelligence

Identity access management is at a crossroads. Organizations want to modernize legacy identity infrastructure by implementing a more flexible, mobile-ready identity management system without disrupting security. At identity and security conference Identiverse, the gap between legacy systems and contemporary identity access management systems was apparent among guests and during the main keynote, given by Andre Durand, CEO and founder at Ping Identity in Denver. Ping Identity was a conference sponsor. In this Q&A, Durand talks about common challenges associated with identity access management, what artificial intelligence can bring to identity management and how managing identity within a workforce has changed as end users become more mobile.


Strategic sovereignty: How Europe can regain the capacity to act

#artificialintelligence

As the world descends into geopolitical competition, other powers increasingly challenge European countries' ability to defend their interests and values. Russia is willing to weaponise energy supplies, cyber capabilities, and disinformation; China invests strategically and uses state capitalism to skew the market; Turkey instrumentalises migration; Saudi Arabia leverages its energy resources. And the Trump administration is willing to exploit European dependence on the transatlantic security alliance and the dollar to achieve short-term policy goals. What unites these disparate powers is their unwillingness to separate the functioning of the global economy from political and security competition. The EU has the market power, defence spending, and diplomatic heft to end this vulnerability and restore sovereignty to its member states.


Using Zipf's Law To Improve Neural Language Models - ___ - Medium

#artificialintelligence

In this article, I will explain what is Zipf's Law in the context of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and how knowledge of this distribution has been used to build better neural language models. I assume the reader is familiar with the concept of neural language models. The code to reproduce the numbers and figures presented in this article can downloaded from this repository. The analysis discussed in this article is based on the raw wikitext-103 corpus. This corpus consist of articles extracted from the set of Good and Featured wikipedia articles and has over 100 million tokens.


Teen Inventor Designs Noninvasive Allergy Screen Using Genetics and Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

One of Ayush Alag's earliest memories is of biting into a chocolate bar with cashew nuts and suddenly feeling his throat get itchy. For most of his childhood, the Santa Clara, California resident avoided eating anything with cashews and other nuts that caused irritation as best as he could. By his middle school years, he and his parents wanted to know for sure: did he have a serious food allergy, like 32 million other Americans, or was it just a food sensitivity? They sought the help of an allergist, Joseph Hernandez of Stanford University. Hernandez told them that the difference between an allergy and a food sensitivity is huge.


AI, robots and Mars: An interview with Mark Woods Anthropology Technology Conference 2019

#artificialintelligence

Dr Mark Woods is one of our panellists in the afternoon. Mark leads the Autonomy and Robotics group at SCISYS UK. We invited him to tell us more about himself ahead of the conference. Mark, thank you so much for accepting our invitation to be a panellist. And you've developed autonomous/AI/ML based systems for Mars Exploration including the European Space Agency's first robotic mission to Mars!


Engineers tap DNA to create 'lifelike' machines

#artificialintelligence

Using what they call DASH (DNA-based Assembly and Synthesis of Hierarchical) materials, engineers constructed a DNA material with capabilities of metabolism, in addition to self-assembly and organization -- three key traits of life. "We are introducing a brand-new, lifelike material concept powered by its very own artificial metabolism. We are not making something that's alive, but we are creating materials that are much more lifelike than have ever been seen before," said Dan Luo, professor of biological and environmental engineering. The paper published in Science Robotics. For any living organism to maintain itself, there must be a system to manage change.


Think science and celebrate Alan Turing

#artificialintelligence

We make the decision based on the characters' strengths, not how many nominations they get. We also take account of who we've chosen in the past, because we want to make sure we feature a wide diversity of people and fields on our notes. The Governor has responded to a letter from Helen Grant MP about the diversity considerations throughout the character selection process. Find out more about choosing banknote characters.
