How computers learn to recognize objects instantly Joseph Redmon

#artificialintelligence

Today, computer vision systems do it with greater than 99 percent accuracy. Joseph Redmon works on the YOLO (You Only Look Once) system, an open-source method of object detection that can identify objects in images and video -- from zebras to stop signs -- with lightning-quick speed. In a remarkable live demo, Redmon shows off this important step forward for applications like self-driving cars, robotics and even cancer detection. The TED Talks channel features the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less).


Speaking 'R' - The Language of Data Science - Udemy

We begin by introducing R and setting things up so that you are ready to go using Rstudio, the associated IDE. He developed algorithms to generate problem sets and solutions, and learned how to create video lessons. He has developed a large Facebook community teaching school maths around Ireland, with associated e-learning products and YouTube channel. He also has a YouTube channel associated with data science, which provides valuable engagement with people round the world who look at problems from a different perspective.


[N] Will Artificial Intelligence Be Illegal in Europe Next Year? • r/MachineLearning

@machinelearnbot

The title may look like clickbait but I've decided to leave the original one. The article mentions important and serious change in law which will take effect in May 2018. EDIT: I've noticed that it was posted several days ago on r/Futurology and posting it here violate the rules. I think that it is too important and it should be discussed in context of machine learning and new approaches to the problem.


Machine Learning and its assimilation in Social media

#artificialintelligence

Today, social media is about ORM, Customer relationship, branding, and sales. Plus segmentation is even easier because of machine learning – thanks to big data, brands have better access to their customer information. Apart from that, machine learning helps big time in social learning. With machine learning, monitoring the comments of the users across various platforms becomes convenient and this helps big time in ORM.

From personal experience, read as many of these as you can, maybe more than once. Yes, some will be better than others but the more you read different explanations and see different diagrams the more you will "get it". Also, they're really helpful reminders, because you can't always work in every field of ML/AI. Also, it's not either or, read these and do the coursera course.


National Day Rally 2017: 'Smart' lamp posts to become key nodes for surveillance and data collection

#artificialintelligence

"We are making every lamp post a smart lamp post to mount different types of sensors," Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said in his National Day Rally speech on Sunday (Aug 20) when he spoke about making Singapore a Smart Nation. During the year-long trial, GovTech and other agencies will monitor noise, water and sewage levels for better estate management, and install smart water meters in homes to better track the use of utilities. National water agency PUB has sensors to detect water levels in drains. Boston police identified the two bombers within three days, after pulling together and analysing a vast amount of data from CCTV cameras, social media and footage contributed by the public.


Winning in Fintech & Insurtech Ecosystem -- Big Win for Technology Innovators & Crunch-time for "Reach Focused" Players

#artificialintelligence

Storage players with its platforms are winning the market from niche players big time. Microsoft with Office 365 (including OneDrive, Teams, Outlook) has taken over the productivity market only challenged by Google (with Gmail/Apps, Chromebooks and winning the education space). While copycat scenarios are known from certain startups in the past -- today the incumbents are entering the markets with copies of startup models everywhere. A provider like enfore will enable those 200mn small business to be seen as one platform and serve this markets as an integrated SaaS provider.


Elon Musk on artificial intelligence: If you're not concerned you should be

The easiest option is to head to the column on the left and open News Feed Preferences. Just hit the three buttons next to News Feed Preferences on the Facebook site and choose between Top Stories and Recent Stories. To permanently delete your Facebook account, you need to head to Facebook's Delete Account page. After Mr Musk called AI "a fundamental existential risk for human civilisation", the Facebook founder branded his views as "negative" and "pretty irresponsible".


Artificial intelligence could be the future of banking

#artificialintelligence

Taking their cue from social media, banks are now embracing a host of new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) – including machine-learning algorithms and natural language processing – application-based services, cloud storage and real-time data management. A number of factors are driving this innovation, including the migration of clients to digital channels, technology advancement in data management and analytics, and ever-rising expectations of clients and regulators. Social media pioneered cloud computing and developed data management software out of necessity to manage costs and develop valuable insights about clients such as what they like to buy, do and watch. But as banks migrate to the big data tools developed by the social media industry, they will be able to flip the 80/20 rule on its head and deliver better business insights for the business and their clients.
