Machine Learning Lends a Hand for Automated Software Testing - The New Stack

#artificialintelligence

Now, a set of artificial intelligence-powered options like Microsoft's Security Risk Detection service and Diffblue's security scanner and test generation tools aim to make these techniques easier, faster and accessible to more developers. Microsoft Security Risk Detection (previously known as Project Springfield) takes a slightly different approach. The AI in Springfield combines two techniques; time travel debugging and constraint solving. Molnar is the researcher running the team behind Springfield; previously he helped apply the same techniques to products like Windows and Microsoft Office, finding a third of the security bugs discovered by fuzzing in the Windows 7 client.


Doctor Hazel, an AI aimed at skin cancer detection, is latest in a long line

#artificialintelligence

Engineers participating in a hackathon last weekend demonstrated an artificial intelligence that they say could someday detect cancerous moles, TechCrunch reports. Apps, mobile platforms, and camera devices designed to evaluate moles and estimate skin cancer risk have a long history filled with successes and failures. That same year, University of Michigan Health System physicians launched UMSkinCheck featuring reminders and instructions for patients to self-examine their moles and skin lesions over time. The FTC alleged that the marketers of both mole photography-based apps "deceptively claimed the apps accurately analyzed melanoma risk," and that the marketers had insufficient evidence to make these claims.


How Machine Learning Stopped a Brute Force Attack - insideBIGDATA

In this special guest feature, Sekhar Sarukkai, Chief Scientist at Skyhigh Networks, discusses the power of machine learning and user behavior analytics in detecting and mitigating the effects of cyberattacks before financial loss occurs. Prior to founding Skyhigh Networks, Sekhar was a Sr. Director of Engineering at Cisco Systems responsible for delivering Cisco's market leading network access control products, including Cisco's Identity Services Engine. Credit Card Security: Another machine learning use case where machine learning is combined with UBA is credit card security. Natural Language Processing: Another interesting application of machine learning is natural language processing (NLP).

Image and Face Recognition: It understands the content of the image, classifies the image into various categories, detects individual objects and faces, detects labels and logos from the images. Text /Sentiment Analytics using NLP: With the rise of Social Media, consumers easily express and share their opinions about companies, products, services, events etc. Image and Face Recognition: It understands the content of the image, classifies the image into various categories, detects individual objects and faces, detects labels and logos from the images.

Thwarting DoS Attacks: A Framework for Detection based on Collective Anomalies and Clustering

IEEE Computer

A hybrid learning framework uses a collective anomaly to analyze patterns in denial-of-service attacks along with data clustering to distinguish an attack from normal network traffic. In two evaluation datasets, the framework achieved higher hit rates relative to existing anomaly-detection techniques.

Deep Learning Reveals New Insights About People

#artificialintelligence

"Deep learning is a set of techniques that allow computers to solve a certain class of problems, such as automatically tagging the contents of pictures, or transcribing speech into text," said Fran├žois Chollet, a deep learning researcher at Google, when asked to explain this facet of machine learning. The recently published deep learning study presented the researchers with unique challenges. Deep learning could automatically classify internet users by personality type, based on their writing. The "deepness" of deep learning comes from the multiple layers inside a neural network (all_is_magic/Shutterstock) Excited by the vast potential, Gelbukh suggested other applications: "While our motivation was to enable personalized opinion mining, including personalized recommender systems, determination of personality type from the text can have other, no less important, applications, such as in education (selection of personalized learning plan), human resources management (determination of fitness for a particular profession), commerce (targeted advertising), health care (for example, large-scale mining for early detection of users with suicidal tendencies in social networks), and social security (mining for users with tendencies for terrorist activity), among many others."

We use a lot of ML algorithms -- TensorFlow, NVidia, modified TensorFlow GPU, Intel Titan. Spark, TensorFlow, Google open source, Microsoft libraries, and Kafka are changing how we code, build algorithms, massage data, and wrangle data.

Deep Learning for Object Detection: A Comprehensive Review

@machinelearnbot

In addition, instead of training many different SVM's to classify each object class, there is a single softmax layer that outputs the class probabilities directly. Remember how Fast R-CNN improved on the original's detection speed by sharing a single CNN computation across all region proposals? On the other hand, when performing detection of the object, we want to learn location variance: if the cat is in the top left-hand corner, we want to draw a box in the top left-hand corner. With this setup, R-FCN is able to simultaneously address location variance by proposing different object regions, and location invariance by having each region proposal refer back to the same bank of score maps.


Machine Learning APIs power a more intelligent Internet of Things at the Edge

@machinelearnbot

Where these IoT devices are in fact already doing some limited analytics at or very near the point of capture (as in the case with true Edge Computing systems), there is opportunity to create a more intelligent, more relevant, and more positive experience or outcome from the Internet of Things by using Haven OnDemand Machine Learning APIs to perform early analytics and computing that enhances or augments the data that is being acquired and aggregated at the edge. It achieved this by analyzing local law enforcement open data crime statistics to detect specific crime trends and specific crime anomalies. A more intelligent IoT solution would analyze still images to detect the presence of faces, recognize and extract text via Optical Character Recognition (OCR), identify corporate logos and even read barcodes. Examples include counting customers, analyzing customer demographics, analyzing customer personal effects to detect logos and determine brand preferences, analyzing real-time social media check-in mentions for sentiment, and point-of-sale data trend analysis.
