7 AI trends to watch in 2017

Seven Artificial Intelligence trends to watch in 2017 - #AI

  • A recent Forrester survey of business and technology professionals found that 58% of them are researching AI, but only 12% are using AI systems.
  • Concerns about AI stealing jobs are nothing new but we anticipate deeper, more nuanced conversations on what AI will mean economically.
  • Expect to hear (a little) less about malevolent AI taking over the world and more about the economic impacts of AI.
  • Most AI systems are black boxes -and immensely complex.
  • Watch highlights covering artificial intelligence, machine learning, intelligence engineering, and more.

From tools, to research, to ethics, Ben Lorica looks at what’s in store for artificial intelligence in 2017.

An overview of gradient descent optimization algorithms

An overview of gradient descent optimization algorithms #deeplearning #abdsc

  • We will consider additional strategies that are helpful for optimizing gradient descent.
  • You need to be a member of Data Science Central to add comments!
  • We will also take a short look at algorithms and architectures to optimize gradient descent in a parallel and distributed setting.
  • Every state-of-the-art Deep Learning library contains implementations of various algorithms to optimize gradient descent (e.g. lasagne’s , caffe’s , and keras’ documentation).
  • If you are unfamiliar with gradient descent, you can find a good introduction on optimizing neural networks .

This article was written by Sebastian Ruder. Sebastian is a PhD student in Natural Language Processing and a research scientist at AYLIEN. He blogs about Machi…
