Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick brings AI brains to USB port

Intel lets you stick an #AI brain into your USB port

  • Intel’s $80 Movidius Neural Compute Stick lets you plug some computing brains into your laptop’s USB port.
  • The device, geared for tinkerers and programmers, can crank out 100 billion mathematical calculations per second while consuming a paltry 1 watt of power.
  • That’s the kind of thing that can be handy if you’re trying to work out computer vision in your drone or help your cleaning robot tell the difference between a cat and a coffee table.
  • Intel announced the device at the conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition on Thursday.
  • Artificial intelligence — and more specifically a brain-like approach called neural networks to machine-learning technology — is sweeping the industry as a new way to do everything from recognize speech to identify what ingredients are in your lunch.

The $80 Movidius Neural Compute Stick is tuned for tinkerers and engineers who want to give neural network technology a whirl.

New Machine Learning Cheat Sheet by Emily Barry

#MachineLearning Cheat Sheet, the #emoji edition:  #abdsc #BigData #DataScience #AI

  • This blog about machine learning was written by Emily Barry.
  • Emily is a Data Scientist in San Francisco, California.
  • The more she learns about machine learning algorithms, the more challenging it is to keep these subjects organized in her brain to recall at a later time.
  • This is by no means a comprehensive guide to machine learning, but rather a study in the basics for herself and the likely small overlap of people who like machine learning and love emoji as much as she do.

World’s largest hedge fund to replace managers with artificial intelligence

World’s largest hedge fund to replace managers with artificial intelligence

  • The machine will make the decisions, according to a set of principles laid out by Dalio about the company vision.
  • Another app, dubbed The Contract, gets staff to set goals they want to achieve and then tracks how effectively they follow through.
  • The company is already highly data-driven, with meetings recorded and staff asked to grade each other throughout the day using a ratings system called “dots”.
  • Posted by Zoltan Istvan in categories: finance , robotics/AI , transhumanism
  • A lot of management is basically information work, the sort of thing that software can get very good at.”

Google on what’s important for 2017: Machine learning, AMP & structured data

Google on what’s important for 2017: Machine learning, AMP & structured data

  • And we’re kind of at the end of the year now and I was wondering if you have any of those to share.
  • The other thing is that there is a very strong push for AMP everywhere.
  • Was that one of the slides always gave, I guess, webmasters and SEOs what’s coming, like what the Google search quality team is looking into for the upcoming year.
  • Danny Sullivan: One thing, this isn’t, like this isn’t live.

Right Now, Artificial Intelligence Is The Only Thing That Matters: Look Around You

  • CEO Sundar Pichai wants to put artificial intelligence everywhere , and Google is marshaling its army of programmers into the task of remaking itself as a machine learning company from top to bottom.
  • If there’s one thing the world’s most valuable companies agree on, it’s that their future success hinges on artificial intelligence.
  • Google is continuing to invest heavily in deep learning at a time its head of machine learning, John Giannandrea , is calling the artificial intelligence spring (as opposed to the AI winter of earlier times).
  • The company’s Founders’ letter this year mentions machine learning up to five times , leaving no doubt that it believes its advantages in this area will give it the edge in the coming years .

The Making of a Cheatsheet: Emoji Edition — Emily Barry

The Making of a Cheatsheet: Emoji Edition  #MachineLearning #DataScience

  • Another thing I love is data science.
  • Linear regression especially is a thing you learn constantly in other contexts and may not realize it’s used in data science.
  • Nor did I set out to make an emoji cheatsheet.
  • There are a few important things in data science that might have just ended up having their own section in a perfect world where a 3-D cheatsheet is a thing.
  • The emoji choices throughout this sheet were very intentional.

@MikeTamir: “The Making of a Cheatsheet: Emoji Edition #MachineLearning #DataScience”


I’ve mentioned this before, but I really love emoji. I spend so much of my time communicating with friends and family on chat that emoji bring necessary animation to my words that might otherwise look flat on the screen. 💁
