Robust Algorithms for Machine Learning - DZone AI

#artificialintelligence

One approach is to design more robust algorithms where the testing error is consistent with the training error, or the performance is stable after adding noise to the dataset. For example, using "r" as a measure of similarity in the registration of low-contrast images can produce cases where "close to unity" means 0.998 and "far from unity" means 0.98, and there's no way to compute a p-value due to the extremely non-Gaussian distributions of pixel values involved. Robust statistics are also called nonparametric precisely because the underlying data can have almost any distribution and they will still produce a number that can be associated with a p-value. So while losing signal information can reduce the statistical power of a method, degrading gracefully in the presence of noise is an extremely nice feature to have, particularly when it comes time to deploy a method into production.


Biologically Inspired Software Architecture for Deep Learning

#artificialintelligence

In the Google paper, the authors enumerate many risk factors, design patterns, and anti-patterns to needs to be taken into consideration in an architecture. These include design patterns such as: boundary erosion, entanglement, hidden feedback loops, undeclared consumers, data dependencies and changes in the external world. By contrast, Deep Learning systems (applies equally to machine learning), code is created from training data. A recent paper from the folks at Berkeley are exploring the requirements for building these new kinds of systems (see: "Real-Time Machine Learning: The Missing Pieces").


Tools for Making Machine Learning Easier and Smoother

#artificialintelligence

The computer vision, speech recognition, natural language processing, and audio recognition applications being developed using DL techniques need large amounts of computational power to process large amounts of data. There are three types of ML: supervised machine learning, unsupervised machine learning, and reinforcement learning. Another interesting example is Google DeepMind, which used DL techniques in AlphaGo, a computer program developed to play the board game Go. Using one of the world's most popular computer games, the developers of the project are creating a research environment open to artificial intelligence and machine learning researchers around the world.


A tale about LDA2vec: when LDA meets word2vec

@machinelearnbot

A few days ago I found out that there had appeared lda2vec (by Chris Moody) – a hybrid algorithm combining best ideas from well-known LDA (Latent Dirichlet Allocation) topic modeling algorithm and from a bit less well-known tool for language modeling named word2vec. At the same time LDA predicts globally: LDA predicts a word regarding global context (i.e. The resulting vector is applied to a conditional probability model to predict the final topic assignments for some set of pre-defined groupings of input documents. Now, let's compare the topics lda2vec produces with topics from the pure LDA algorithm (I used gensim package for this).


How to Build a Recurrent Neural Network in TensorFlow

@machinelearnbot

In this tutorial I'll explain how to build a simple working Recurrent Neural Network in TensorFlow. It will plot the loss over the time, show training input, training output and the current predictions by the network on different sample series in a training batch. The sliding batch window is also striding three steps at each run, which in our sample case means that no batch will encapsulate the dependency, so it can not train. Blue bars denote a training input signal (binary one), red bars show echos in the training output and green bars are the echos the net is generating.


How A Data Scientist Can Improve His Productivity – dataversioncontrol

#artificialintelligence

Data science and machine learning are iterative processes. DVC takes care of dependencies between commands that you run, generated data files, and code files and allows you to easily reproduce any steps of your research with regards to files changes. This allows DVC to track input and output files, construct the dependency graph (DAG), and store the command and parameters for a future command reproduction. But it moves the actual file content outside the Git repository (in .cache The productivity of data scientists can be improved by speeding up iteration processes and the DVC tool takes care of this.


Dynatrace gets DAVIS to do what humans can't in operations management

#artificialintelligence

Take, for example, the recent introduction of the Dynatrace Artificial Virtual Intelligence System, or DAVIS for short. That's when users need these platforms and these applications to adapt, says Allen: So we built that kind of artificial intelligence capability into the platform and thought actually what we've got here is actually building a virtual operator a virtual assistant into the solution. Setting that thought to one side, DAVIS is well positioned for monitoring and managing the hyperconverged sector. What the system alone won't do without users specifically integrating other applications with DAVIS is notify other applications so that remedial action can be set in motion – it won't automatically go and spin up new instances of a server to self-heal an issue.

This post announces Ray, a framework for efficiently running Python code on clusters and large multi-core machines. Like remote functions, actor methods return object IDs (that is, futures) that can be passed into other tasks and whose values can be retrieved with ray.get. The time required for deserialization is particularly important because one of the most common patterns in machine learning is to aggregate a large number of values (for example, neural net weights, rollouts, or other values) in a single process, so the deserialization step could happen hundreds of times in a row. To minimize the time required to deserialize objects in shared memory, we use the Apache Arrow data layout.


Would You Survive the Titanic? A Guide to Machine Learning in Python

@machinelearnbot

I recommend using the "pip" Python package manager, which will allow you to simply run "pip3 install packagename " to install each of the dependencies: For actually writing and running the code I recommend using IPython, which will allow you to run modular blocks of code and immediately the view output values and data visualizations, along with the Jupyter Notebook as a graphical interface. With all of the dependencies installed, simply run "jupyter notebook" on the command line, from the same directory as the titanic3.xls The Data At First Glance: Who Survived The Titanic, And Why? Before we can feed our dataset into a machine learning algorithm, we have to remove missing values and split it into training and test sets. Interestingly, after splitting by class, the main deciding factor determining the survival of women is the ticket fare that they paid, while the deciding factor for men is their age(with children being much more likely to survive).
