If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
Deep learning is the current darling of AI. Used by behemoths such as Microsoft, Google and Amazon, it leverages artificial neural networks that "learn" through exposure to immense amounts of data. By immense we mean internet-scale amounts -- or billions of documents at a minimum. If your project draws upon publicly available data, deep learning can be a valuable tool. The same is true if budget isn't an issue.
AbbVie is a research-based biopharmaceutical company that serves more than 30 million patients in 175 countries. With its global scale, AbbVie partnered with Intel to optimize processes for its more than 47,000 employees. This whitepaper highlights two use cases that are important to AbbVie's research. The first is Abbelfish Machine Translation, AbbVie's language translation service based on the Transformer NLP model, that leverages second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and the Intel Optimization for TensorFlow with Intel oneAPI Deep Neural Network Library (oneDNN). AbbVie was able to achieve a 1.9x improvement in throughput for Abbelfish language translation using Intel Optimization for TensorFlow 1.15 with oneAPI Deep Neural Network Library when compared to TensorFlow 1.15 without oneDNN.1
Image classification is used to solve several Computer Vision problems; right from medical diagnoses, to surveillance systems, on to monitoring agricultural farms. There are innumerable possibilities to explore using Image Classification. If you have completed the basic courses on Computer Vision, you are familiar with the tasks and routines involved in Image Classification tasks. Image Classification tasks follow a standard flow – where you pass an image to a deep learning model and it outcomes the class or the label of the object present. While learning Computer Vision, most often a project that would be equivalent to your first hello world project, will most likely be an image classifier. You attempt to solve something like the digit recognition on MNIST Digits dataset or maybe the Cats and Dog Classification problem.
Many times AI has been put on a pedestal as the future of x y & z, however, many seem to agree that education is a sector in particular which will see stark changes in both admin, teaching styles, personalisation and more. I had the pleasure of speaking to three individuals working in the field, including, Vinod Bakthavachalam, Senior Data Scientist at Coursera, Kian Katanforoosh, Lecturer at Stanford University & Sergey Karayev, Co-Founder and CTO of Gradescope. We began by having Sergey of Gradescope walk us through his product, which has been recently acquired by turnitin. The concept, it seemed was formed from the simple and widespread issue of both lack of consistency, lack of insight through time constraint and delayed feedback on academic work. Sergey found that scanning the papers onto an online interface when paired with a rubric can allow for accurate marking in seconds across several papers.
The world of artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the way we live, though it has become something of an acronym soup. From DL to ML, SSD to CNN (not this one), there are many interesting facets of AI and plenty of opportunities for advancements that affect our everyday lives. It's a lucrative career field well worth exploring, and we've got just the place to start.
Artificial intelligence, which can generate astonishingly realistic false images and videos, is increasingly being used to detect them. Distinguishing between fact and fakery has become an everyday part of our online lives. During the U.S. election campaign, a manipulated video appearing to show Joe Biden forget which state he was in went viral, receiving more than a million views before it was debunked. The doctoring of visual material for political mischief-making is nothing new. Josef Stalin notoriously erased undesirable companions from photographs during the Great Purge in 1930s Russia.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) revolution is here and TensorFlow 2.0 is finally here to make it happen much faster! TensorFlow 2.0 is Google's most powerful, recently released open source platform to build and deploy AI models in practice. AI technology is experiencing exponential growth and is being widely adopted in the Healthcare, defense, banking, gaming, transportation and robotics industries. The purpose of this course is to provide students with practical knowledge of building, training, testing and deploying Artificial Neural Networks and Deep Learning models using TensorFlow 2.0 and Google Colab. The course provides students with practical hands-on experience in training Artificial Neural Networks and Convolutional Neural Networks using real-world dataset using TensorFlow 2.0 and Google Colab.
This video shows our Driving Intelligence completing an unprotected right turn through an intersection near our London King's Cross HQ. This is one of the hardest manoeuvres for autonomy and behaviour Wayve has been able to learn with end-to-end deep learning. Unlike other approaches, we learn to drive from data using camera-first sensing without needing an HD-map. We train our system to understand the world around it with computer vision and learn to drive with imitation and reinforcement learning. In this example, our Driving Intelligence is able to navigate the complex lane layout, avoiding the car which runs the red light and passing the pedestrians with human-like confidence.
Space exploration has been done by countries around the world as it holds the key to the beginning of humanity. Many other fascinating mysteries of the cosmos, including the existence of celestial life await us. However, until today, just about 4 % of the known universe that consists of planets, stars, galaxies, and other celestial objects that astronomers and scientists can see and are aware of has been studied, with the remaining 96% yet to be discovered. Countries around the world are using emerging technologies to transform space exploration and one such breakthrough technology is Artificial Intelligence (AI). In recent years, artificial intelligence has been making headlines, helping us to tackle issues quicker than conventional computers will ever permit.
The process of building and training Machine Learning models is always in the spotlight. There is a lot of talk about different Neural Network architectures, or new frameworks, facilitating the idea-to-implementation transition. While these are the heart of an ML engine, the circulatory system, which enables nutrients to move around and connects everything, is often missing. But what comprises this system? What gives the pipeline its pulse? The most important component in an ML pipeline works silently in the background and provides the glue that binds everything together.
