Google’s AI Guru Says That Great Artificial Intelligence Must Build on Neuroscience

Google’s #AI guru says that great artificial intelligence must build on neuro science

  • Demis Hassabis knows a thing or two about artificial intelligence: he founded the London-based AI startup DeepMind, which was purchased by Google for $650 million back in 2014.
  • In a paper published today in the journal Neuron, Hassabis and three coauthors argue that only by better understanding human intelligence can we hope to push the boundaries of what artificial intellects can achieve.
  • But it also points out that more recent advances haven’t leaned on biology as effectively, and that a general intelligence will need more human-like characteristics—such as an intuitive understanding of the real world and more efficient ways of learning.
  • As Hassabis explains in an interview with the Verge, artificial intelligence and neuroscience have become “two very, very large fields that are steeped in their own traditions,” which makes it “quite difficult to be expert in even one of those fields, let alone expert enough in both that you can translate and find connections between them.”

Inquisitiveness and imagination will be hard to create any other way.

12 Algorithms Every Data Scientist Should Know

The world of #machinelearning algorithms —@analyticbridge #AI

  • A rather comprehensive list of algorithms can be found here.
  • Many are posted and available for free on Github or developers with over 800 algorithms, though you have to pay a fee to access them.
  • You can find the original article, here.

Caffe2 Learning Framework and GPU Acceleration

Run #deeplearning training with #Caffe2 to get a speedup on NVIDIA GPUs. Get started today:

  • Caffe2 is a deep learning framework enabling simple and flexible deep learning.
  • Built on the original Caffe, Caffe2 is designed with expression, speed, and modularity in mind, allowing for a more flexible way to organize computation.
  • Caffe2 aims to provide an easy and straightforward way for you to experiment with deep learning by leveraging community contributions of new models and algorithms.
  • Caffe2 comes with native Python and C++ APIs that work interchangeably so you can prototype quickly now, and easily optimize later.
  • Caffe2 is accelerated with the latest NVIDIA Pascal™ GPUs and scales across multiple GPUs within a single node.

Run deep learning training with Caffe2 up to 3x faster on the latest NVIDIA Pascal GPUs.

Google’s AutoDraw uses machine learning to help you draw like a pro

Google's AutoDraw lets you draw like a pro  by @fredericl

  • But with AutoDraw, Google is launching a new experiment today that uses machine learning algorithms to match your doodles with professional drawings to make you look like you know what you’re doing.
  • Artists who want to donate their drawings to the project can do that here, by the way.
  • This project actually uses the same technology as Google’s QuickDraw experiment.
  • QuickDraw is more of a game, though, where you’re trying to draw a given object and hope that the AI algorithms recognize it within 20 seconds.
  • With AutoDraw, you get more freedom to experiment, and, while you could read all about it here, it’s probably best you head over to AutoDraw.com and give it a

Drawing isn’t for everyone. I, for one, am definitely not very good at it. But with AutoDraw, Google is launching a new experiment today that uses machine..

Why Future Emphasis Should be on Algorithms

Why Future Emphasis Should be on #Algorithms – Not #Code 

 #fintech #AI @TrendinTech

  • People figured that if they could find a way to codify instructions to a machine to tell it what steps to take, any manual operation could be eliminated saving any business time and money.
  • Algorithms, on the other hand, are a series of steps that describe a way of solving a problem that meets the criteria of both being correct and ability to be terminated if need be.
  • Instead of writing code to search our data given a set of parameters of the certain pattern as traditional coding focuses on, with big data we look for the pattern that matches the data.
  • Now another step’s been added to the equation that finds patterns humans don’t see, such as the certain wavelength of light, or data over a certain volume.
  • So, this new algorithmic step now successfully searches for patterns and will also create the code needed to do it.

We are all now in what’s called the “big data era,” and we’ve been here for quite some time. Once upon a time we were only just starting to piece together

11 Deep Learning Articles, Tutorials and Resources

  • According to Wikipedia, deep learning (deep structured learning, hierarchical learning or deep machine learning) is a branch of machine learning based on a set of algorithms that attempt to model high-level abstractions in data by using multiple processing layers, with complex structures or otherwise, composed of multiple non-linear transformations.
  • Deep learning is sometimes defined as the intersection between machine learning and artificial intelligence.
  • Many articles on deep learning can be found here.

    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.
