More on Fully Automated Machine Learning


Summary: Recently we've been profiling Automated Machine Learning (AML) platforms, both of the professional variety, and particularly those proprietary one-click-to-model variety that are being pitched to untrained analysts and line-of-business managers. Recently we've written a series of articles on Automated Machine Learning (AML) which are platforms or packages designed to take over the most repetitive elements of preparing predictive models. Typically these cover cleaning, preprocessing, some feature engineering, feature selection, and then model creation using one or several algorithms including hyperparameter optimization. DMWay offers only GLM as a modeling tool and has developed a nice suite of preprocessing and feature selection tools to round out their easy-to-use platform.

Zero to Deep Learning with Python and Keras by Jose Portilla and Francesco Mosconi will teach to understand and build Deep Learning models for images, text, sound and more using Python and Keras. This Keras tutorial will teach you to apply deep learning to solve supervised and unsupervised learning problems involving images, text, sound, time series and tabular data.

Breaking down artificial intelligence to form a starting point for adoption


We're of course not talking about building houses, creating security resilience, or booking vacations. The second step: determine the intent of our artificial intelligence initiative. The third step: identify the capabilities required. The philosophy of logic and reason established the foundations of learning, language and rationality.

Robots and the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence


Once humans develop artificial intelligence, it will take off on its own and redesign itself at an ever-increasing rate. As an overview of ethical issues involved in robot development, the Roadmap raises philosophical questions that still resonate over a decade later. MIT's Moral Machine uses self-driving car scenarios such as that to illustrate the sort of moral decisions that may be made by machine intelligence. The Future of Life Institute open letter also links to an outline of recommended research priorities for maximizing AI's societal benefit.

Artificial Intelligence Is Likely to Make a Career in Finance, Medicine or Law a Lot Less Lucrative


Growing up, there's a good chance you heard the mantra "go to a good school, get a good job, and make lots of money." Perhaps you were encouraged to get a professional degree to land a high paying job like a doctor, dentist, lawyer or something similar. This also seems like great advice, considering a professional degree holder typically earns more than $2 million more in their lifetimes than the average college graduate. Because lawyers tend to pay excellent attention to detail, and are highly versed in logic, a good alternative field would be programming.

Facebook Researchers Kill Artificial Intelligence Programs After They Invent Their Own Language


One leading area of development for the company is artificial intelligence, which has long been a dream confined to the realm of science fiction. This development was unexpected, and the researchers building the program pulled the plug, killing the program. The artificial intelligence, able to think on its own, threw off the cumbersome language of its human creators and began speaking in a language humans couldn't understand. "In one exchange illustrated by the company," Digital Journal reports, "the two negotiating bots, named Bob and Alice, used their own language to complete their exchange."

Google wants to make more people shout at their phone rather than type on it

The Independent

Google is trying to get more people to dictate messages and searches, instead of typing them out. The company says has now opened up voice typing to 119 language varieties and over a billion people around the world, and says switching from typing to talking will help users save time. However, many phone users still feel embarrassed trying to use voice search on their phone in public.

4 Ways Machine Learning Boosts The Customer Experience


The most recent Current Account Switch Service campaign from BACS used machine learning technology in partnership with programmatic ad buying to match audience profiles with highly targeted video content. Digital tools and services increasingly contain features that provide advanced recommendations and help users make decisions faster. The latest advances in mobile operating systems offer customers decision support between different user interfaces. As we're at the beginning of this journey, today's intelligent machines need training by humans, and work best in collaboration with real people.

Google hires a legendary Apple engineer to tackle AI


He left Apple (where he developed the Swift programming language) to help build Tesla's Autopilot technology, only to leave months later after realizing that he wasn't a good fit. He just announced that he's joining Google (namely, the Brain team) to make AI "accessible to everyone." While Lattner doesn't specify exactly what he'll be doing, Bloomberg sources say he'll be working on the TensorFlow language Google uses to simplify AI programming. Google could put that know-how to work making TensorFlow easier to use, or lowering the hardware demands so that AI runs more smoothly on phones and computers.

China's Cryptocurrency NEO Will Change the World As We Know It


Antshares, the first open-source blockchain platform developed in China, announced a complete rebranding of its blockchain solution into NEO. If you recall at the beginning of this year, China's central bank PBOC (People's Bank of China) announced it was developing an Ethereum-based digital currency to replace the Yuan. The Beijing-Shanghai network that is currently under construction is set to host the world's longest land-based quantum communication channels, stretching over 2,000km with Jinan as its hub. Will Be Uploading Onto the NEO Platform Alex Norta announced that his startup Agrello will be partnering with NEO to develop smart contracts for automation, self-execution, accuracy and transparency.
