AI Superstar Andrew Ng Is Democratizing Deep Learning With A New Online Course

  • That’s the vision of Andrew Ng, a founder of the Google Brain deep learning project, and former head of AI at Baidu–a position he left in March–who is today announcing a set of five interconnected online courses on the subject.
  • “Today, if you want to learn deep learning, there are lots of people searching online, reading [dozens of] research papers, reading blog posts, and watching YouTube videos,” Ng tells Fast Company.
  • As Ng sees it, getting to an AI-powered economy is going to take the work of much more than any one, or even several companies.
  • “I hope we can build an AI-powered future that provides everyone affordable healthcare, accessible education, inexpensive and convenient transportation, and a chance for meaningful work for every man and woman,” Ng says in his announcement, which is the first from his newly created company, deeplearning.ai.
  • Ng is aware that many people are still confused by AI, often getting bogged down in the different subspecialties, and lingo that can easily be misused.

The founder of Google Brain and former head of Baidu’s AI efforts wants to train a giant new workforce to help make “AI the new electricity.”

Demystifying #MachineLearning Part 4: Image and Video Applications from @AnandSRao:  #AI

  • Deep learning requires large volumes of data in order for a system to learn the features and should not be attempted where data is sparse.
  • , deep learning is suitable only for certain classes of problems and cannot be seen as a panacea to solve all problems.

Machine learning for the future

#Machinelearning for the future  #BigData @google

  • In a keynote talk, Dean outlined the history of machine learning (ML) and neural networks and various ways to programme models to take advantage of raw data coming through in the form of images or audio.
  • Models must be able to learn unsupervised, engage in multi-tasking and transfer learning, and take action from the world (also known as reinforcement learning).
  • Dean said researchers are beginning to look at privacy preserving techniques in machine learning and added that model structures mdash; the part of machine learning where human interaction plays a big role in managing the weights around ML – is of great import.
  • What we now want most from machine learning, said Google Senior Fellow Jeff Dean to the audience at SIGMOD 2016 keynote yesterday (Tuesday, June 28), is “understanding.”
  • “There is a lot of parallelism in these models,” Dean added, pointing to the Google Translate app that can now translate signs into a different language in real time using pixel identification.
