Free Machine Learning eBooks

Free #MachineLearning eBooks:  #abdsc #BigData #DataScience via @eelrekab

  • Machine learning is one of the fastest growing areas of computer science, with far-reaching applications.
  • The aim of this textbook is to introduce machine learning, and the algorithmic paradigms it offers, in a principled way.
  • The book provides an extensive theoretical account of the fundamental ideas underlying machine learning and the mathematical derivations that transform these principles into practical algorithms.
  • These include a discussion of the computational complexity of learning and the concepts of convexity and stability; important algorithmic paradigms including stochastic gradient descent, neural networks, and structured output learning; and emerging theoretical concepts such as the PAC-Bayes approach and compression-based bounds.
  • Designed for an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course, the text makes the fundamentals and algorithms of machine learning accessible to students and non-expert readers in statistics, computer science, mathematics, and engineering.

Here are three eBooks available for free.

Will Robots Take Over? Human Rights Watch Urges Artificial Intelligence Weapons Ban

  • Human Rights Watch issued a report Friday urging a ban on the development of fully autonomous weapons.
  • To prevent the development of fully autonomous weapons, Human Rights Watch recommended comprehensive, legally binding restrictions on international and national levels, as well as formal discussions on the matter to be held at the Geneva Convention’s Fifth Review Conference .
  • Human Rights Watch also contended that removing the human element of warfare raised serious moral issues, saying lack of empathy would exacerbate unlawful and unnecessary violence.
  • Human Rights Watch Urges Artificial Intelligence Weapons Ban
  • Parties to the international treaty’s Convention on Conventional Weapons will meet from Monday through Friday discussing the “use of certain conventional weapons which may be deemed to be excessively injurious or to have indiscriminate effects.”

The organization echoed concerns by leading scientists that fully autonomous weaponry would be bad for mankind.

MIT’s deep-learning software produces videos of the future

MIT’s deep-learning software produces videos of the future

  • The software uses a deep-learning algorithm that was trained on two million unlabeled videos amounting to a year’s worth of screen time.
  • Posted by Shane Hinshaw in categories: information science , robotics/AI , transportation
  • The new software is claimed to be more accurate, by producing up to 32 frames per second and building out entire scenes in one go.
  • The technology is still bare-bones, but could one day make for smarter self-driving cars that are better prepared for the unexpected, among other applications.
  • Well, scientists at MIT have just trained machines to do the same thing, with artificial intelligence software that can take a single image and use it to to create a short video of the seconds that followed.

  • ABBA fans: dust off your platforms and prepare to step into a time machine.
  • In June, all four members sung on stage for the first time in 30 years during a special 50th anniversary party in Stockholm.
  • There are few details about the performance, but the new show aims to blend virtual reality and artificial intelligence in an entirely new way to enable ABBA fans of all ages to interact with the band’s unique disco sound.
  • “We are exploring a new technological world, with virtual reality and artificial intelligence at the forefront, that will allow us to create new forms of entertainment and content we couldn’t have previously imagined.”

The Swedish super-group is returning for an “entertainment experience” that will blend cutting-edge virtual reality and artificial intelligence
