Don't use deep learning your data isn't that big

  • Don’t use deep learning your data isn’t that big

    The other day Brian was at a National Academies meeting and he gave one of his usual classic quotes:

    When I saw that quote I was reminded of the blog post Don’t use hadoop – your data isn’t that big.

  • Just as with Hadoop at the time that post was written – deep learning has achieved a level of mania and hype that means people are trying it for every problem.
  • The issue is that only a very few places actually have the data to do deep learning.
  • But I’ve always thought that the major advantage of using deep learning over simpler models is that if you have a massive amount of data you can fit a massive number of parameters.
  • If you are Google, Amazon, or Facebook and have near infinite data it makes sense to deep learn.

Best quote from NAS DS Round Table: “I mean, do we need deep learning to analyze 30 subjects?” – B Caffo @simplystats #datascienceinreallife

Dubai is introducing robotic policemen, to make up 25% of the force by 2030

Dubai is introducing robotic policemen, to make up 25% of the force by 2030  #AI

  • On Wednesday, May 24, Dubai will launch a new police robot that marks the first phase of the integration of robots into the police force.
  • This modified version of the REEM robot (Designed by PAL robotics and unveiled in 2011) is capable of feeding video to a command center, forwarding reported crimes to police, settling fines, facial recognition, and speaking nine languages.
  • Dubai hopes robots will constitute 25 percent of its police force by 2030, with the next stage being to use them as receptionists in police stations.
  • Brigadier Khalid Nasser Alrazooqi, General Director of Dubai Police’s Smart Services Department, told CNN that they eventually want to release a “fully-functional robot that can work as [a] normal police officer.”
  • In February, China started using the AnBot that uses facial recognition to identify criminals and is capable of following them until the police arrive.

On Wednesday, May 24, Dubai will launch a new police robot that marks the first phase of the integration of robots into the police force. This modified version of the REEM robot (Designed by PAL robotics and unveiled in 2011) is capable of feeding video to a command center, forwarding reported crimes to police, settling fines, facial recognition, and speaking nine languages. It will operate at most malls and tourist attractions.

Artificial Intelligence Helps in Learning How Children Learn

Artificial intelligence helps in learning how children learn

  • Researchers in artificial intelligence and machine learning have started to design software that allows computers to learn about causes the way that scientists do.
  • In one experiment, we showed preschool children a simple machine with a switch on one side and two disks that spin on top.
  • Bayesian inference considers both the strength of new evidence and the strength of your existing hypotheses.
  • Both toddlers and scientists hold on to well-confirmed hypotheses, but eventually enough new evidence can overturn even the most cherished idea.
  • Several studies show that youngsters integrate existing knowledge and new evidence in this way.

Alison Gopnik, author of “ Making AI Human ” in Scientific American ’s June issue describes the use of Bayesian statistics to outline how youngsters infer the basics of cause and effect.

Enterprise Software Tools for AI

  • The complete report, available here, covers how businesses are using machine learning and deep learning, differentiating between AI, machine learning and deep learning, what it takes to get started, software tools for AI and more.
  • There are three exemplary members of the AI software stack available as deep learning frameworks: Caffe, MXNet and TensorFlow.
  • • MXNet, jointly developed by collaborators from multiple universities and companies, is a lightweight, portable and flexible deep learning framework designed for both efficiency and flexibility.
  • Enterprise software tools for AI also includes NVIDIA DIGITS , which puts the power of deep learning into the hands of engineers and data scientists.
  • DIGITS simplifies common deep learning tasks such as managing data, designing and training neural networks on multi-GPU systems, monitoring performance in real time with advanced visualizations, and selecting the best performing model.

There are three exemplary members of the AI software stack available as deep learning frameworks. This post explores software options for AI.

RoboCop on the beat

INFORMATION AGE: RoboCop on the beat   #Dubai #AI @AtticusIndepand

  • By Edward Pollitt on May 29 2017 2:34PM

    Dubai has unveiled the world’s first operational ‘RoboCop’ as it moves towards an automated police force.

  • “It has a smart intelligent system so it can protect people from crime, because it can broadcast what is happening right away to our command and control centre,” said Brig Al Razooqi, Dubai Police Director General of Smart Services.
  • The ‘Dubai Police Robot’ is the first automated acquisition to the Dubai Police Force, which aims to have 25% of the force robotic by 2030.
  • “The launch of the world’s first operational Robocop is a significant milestone for the emirate and a step towards realising Dubai’s vision to be a global leader in smart cities technology adoption.
  • “We are not going to fire our police officers by replacing them with this tool but with the number of people in Dubai increasing, we want to relocate police officers so they work in the right areas and can concentrate on providing a safe city,” Brig Al Razooqi said.

A quarter of Dubai’s police will be robots by 2030.
