    Use them on Real-World Datasets

    You must understand algorithms to get good at machine learning.

  • In this mega Ebook written in the friendly Machine Learning Mastery style that you’re used to, finally cut through the math and learn exactly how machine learning algorithms work.
  • I’ve written books on algorithms, won and ranked in the top 10% in machine learning competitions, consulted for startups and spent a long time working on systems for forecasting tropical cyclones.
  • (yes I have written tons of code that runs operationally)

    I get a lot of satisfaction helping developers get started and get really good at machine learning.

  • I teach an unconventional top-down and results-first approach to machine learning where we start by working through tutorials and problems, then later wade into theory as we need it.

Are Robots on track to become your banker?

Are #Robots on track 

to become your #banker? 

 #fintech #MachineLearning #AI

  • With the newfound ability to order food, order a ride, or utilize online banking all through different apps on a cell phone, the hospitality and food services, transportation, and financial services are some of the main sectors of business impacted so far.
  • LinkedIn Senior Financial editor Walden Siew says automation is altering the landscape of the financial services industry for the long haul.
  • Siew says that according to a recent LinkedIn survey, “One in three retail bankers were concerned about automation displacing their jobs or aspects of their jobs, while the ratio was about one in four for the wider financial services professionals.”
  • “We’ll see more traditional banks such as JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs hire digital bankers to build startup units like Marcus within the mother ship to offer alternative financial services to reach non-traditional clients” Siew said.
  • The study reported that, “Financial advisors/wealth managers lead the charge on thinking that there will always be demand for traditional financial services, whereas interest in fintech will rise and fall (43% compared to 29% overall).”

As technology continues to advance and change the way we complete daily tasks, robots have begun to threaten job security across myriad industries.

Deep Learning: Definition, Resources, Comparison with Machine Learning

#DeepLearning: Definition, Resources, Comparison with #MachineLearning #abdsc

  • It is about designing algorithms that can make robots intelligent, such a face recognition techniques used in drones to detect and target terrorists, or pattern recognition / computer vision algorithms to automatically pilot a plane, a train, a boat or a car.
  • Many deep learning algorithms (clustering, pattern recognition, automated bidding, recommendation engine, and so on)  — even though they appear in new contexts such as IoT or machine to machine communication — still rely on relatively old-fashioned techniques such as logistic regression, SVM, decision trees, K-NN, naive Bayes, Bayesian modeling, ensembles, random forests, signal processing, filtering, graph theory, gaming theory, and many others.
  • Some are new, such as indexation algorithms to automate digital publishing, improve search engines, or create and manage large catalogs such as Amazon’s product listing.
  • Example of deep learning algorithms for clustering

    As a result, many deep learning practitioners call themselves data scientist, computer scientist, statistician, or sometimes engineer.

  • Below are some resources to help you get started with deep learning: articles on this topic started to appear in large numbers around 2015, though many date back to before 1990.

Deep learning is sometimes referred to as the intersection between machine learning and artificial intelligence. It is about designing algorithms that can make…

Artificial Intelligence Laboratory Invents New Styles of Art

Artificial Intelligence Laboratory Invents New Styles of Art

  • A team of researchers at Rutgers University in New Jersey and Facebook’s AI Lab in California are using AI to create a new system for generating art.
  • With this in mind, GAN works to create new styles that evoke a profound human response, perhaps understanding the idea Anthony Bourdain shared in an interview with Crave: “To me, in a perfect work, art causes the people who look at it to run out in the street and get into fistfights over whether its art or not.”
  • The second set of human works featured a selection of 25 paintings exhibited at Art Basel 2016.
  • “Being shown in Art Basel 2016 is an indication that these are art works at the frontiers of human creativity in paintings, at least as judged by the art experts and the art market,” the researchers determined.
  • The experiment continued by testing perception and arousal, asking if participants could determine if the works of art were intentional, if they could see the visual structure of the work, if they felt the works communicated with them, and if they felt inspired and elevated by their interactions with the art.

A new AI program creates new styles of art that some prefer to that of humans.

  • However, to achieve high accuracy, the training sets need to be large, diverse, and accurately annotated, which is costly.
  • An alternative to labelling huge amounts of data is to use synthetic images from a simulator.
  • This is cheap as there is no labeling cost, but the synthetic images may not be realistic enough, resulting in poor generalization on real test images.
  • We show that training models on these refined images leads to significant improvements in accuracy on various machine learning tasks.

Most successful examples of neural nets today are trained with supervision. However, to achieve high accuracy, the training sets need to be large, diverse, and accurately annotated, which is costly. An alternative to labelling huge amounts of data is to use synthetic images from a simulator. This is cheap as there is no labeling cost, but the synthetic images may not be realistic enough, resulting in poor generalization on real test images. To help close this performance gap, we’ve developed a method for refining synthetic images to make them look more realistic. We show that training models on these refined images leads to significant improvements in accuracy on various machine learning tasks.
