Cool library for cyclic learning rates in Keras:  #deeplearning

  • This repository includes a Keras callback to be used in training that allows implementation of cyclical learning rate policies, as detailed in Leslie Smith’s paper Cyclical Learning Rates for Training Neural Networks arXiv:1506.01186v4.
  • When you scale on cycle, the absolute change in learning rate from one iteration to the next is always constant in a cycle.
  • This allows you to plot your learning rates over training iterations, even after you change/reset the cycle.
  • The author offers a simple approach to determining the boundaries of your cycle by increasing the learning rate over a number of epochs and observing the results.
  • In order to plot accuracy vs learning rate, you can use the attribute to get the learning rates and accuracy at each iteration.

Drive.ai uses deep learning to teach self-driving cars – and to give them a voice

Drive․ai uses deep learning to teach self-driving cars – and to give ...  by @etherington

  • Core to Drive.ai’ s approach is using deep learning across the board in its autonomous driving system, which means they’re teaching their self-driving cars somewhat like how you’d teach a human.
  • Drive.ai uses deep learning to teach self-driving cars – and to give them a voice
  • While increasing the safety of driving means building an effective ‘left brain’ for a self-driving car, so to speak, it also means addressing the ‘right brain,’ too.
  • Uber and Volvo put $300M into building self-driving cars ready for sale by 2021
  • Startup Drive.ai is revealing its product and strategy for the first time, and the autonomous driving tech company is looking not only to create the best hardware and software to enable self-driving cars, but also to make sure those cars communicate with people outside of the car in the most effective way possible.

Microsoft’s Project Malmo AI platform goes open source

Microsoft's Project Malmo #AI platform goes open source | ZDNet

  • Project Malmo is an artificial intelligence system used to test out AI algorithms using the Minecraft world.
  • Project Malmo consists of a Java mod and code to help AI agents act within the world of Minecraft, and is compatible with Windows, Linux or Mac OS.
  • The web site uses cookies to improve your experience.
  • On Thursday, the Redmond giant revealed the shift of Project Malmo from the hands of a small group of computer scientists in a private preview to GitHub , a code repository for open-source projects.
  • According to Katja Hofmann, a researcher in Microsoft’s Cambridge, UK research lab, Project Malmo can also be used in “reinforcement learning,” in which AI agents learn to complete a task by trial and error — and are rewarded when they make the right choice.
