How Artificial Intelligence is Changing Web Writing

How #ArtificialIntelligence is Changing Web Writing  #ai

  • In short, in the universe of pages existing in a (at the time almost) shapeless web, Page and Brin wanted to organize that information to make it become knowledge.
  • Out of the more than 200 factors that Google accounts for when deciding whether the content on the web is relevant, RankBrain became the third most relevant.
  • First, the semantic web is a set of rules and standards that make human language readable to machines.
  • In semantic web jargon an entity is a subject which has unambiguous meaning because it has a strong contextual foundation.
  • In other words, instead of going from writing to web writing as unconsciously as the human race transitioned from hunter-gathering to farming, it is time to take this step forward deliberately and intentionally.

When Larry Page and Sergey Brin invented PageRank back in 1996, they had one simple idea in mind: Organize the web based on “link popularity.” In…

Deep Learning Research Review: Natural Language Processing

#ICYMI #DeepLearning Research Review: Natural Language Processing  #NLP

  • Since deep learning loves math, we’re going to represent each word as a d-dimensional vector.
  • Extracting the rows from this matrix can give us a simple initialization of our word vectors.
  • The above cost function is basically saying that we’re going to add the log probabilities of ‘I’ and ‘love’ as well as ‘NLP’ and ‘love’ (where ‘love’ is the center word in both cases).
  • One Sentence Summary: Word2Vec seeks to find vector representations of different words by maximizing the log probability of context words given a center word and modifying the vectors through SGD.
  • Bonus: Another cool word vector initialization method: GloVe (Combines the ideas of coocurence matrices with Word2Vec)


This edition of Deep Learning Research Review explains recent research papers in Natural Language Processing (NLP). If you don’t have the time to read the top papers yourself, or need an overview of NLP with Deep Learning, this post is for you.

AI Tech Talk: An Overview of AI on the AWS Platform

New on the AWS #AI Blog,

  • AWS offers a family of intelligent services that provide cloud-native machine learning and deep learning technologies to address your different use cases and needs.
  • For developers looking to add managed AI services to their applications, AWS brings natural language understanding (NLU) and automatic speech recognition (ASR) with Amazon Lex, visual search and image recognition with Amazon Rekognition, text-to-speech (TTS) with Amazon Polly, and developer-focused machine learning with Amazon Machine Learning.
  • For more in-depth deep learning applications, the AWS Deep Learning AMI lets you run deep learning in the cloud, at any scale.
  • Launch instances of the AMI, pre-installed with open source deep learning frameworks (Apache MXNet, TensorFlow, Caffe, Theano, Torch and Keras), to train sophisticated, custom AI models, experiment with new algorithms, and learn new deep learning skills and techniques; all backed by auto-scaling clusters of GPU-based instances.
  • Whether you’re just getting started with AI or you’re a deep learning expert, this session will provide a meaningful overview of the managed AI services, the AI Platform offerings, and the AI Frameworks you can run on the AWS Cloud.
