Neuromorphic Chips and the Future of Your Cell Phone

Summary:  The ability to train large scale CNNs directly on your cell phone without sending the data round trip to the cloud is the key to next gen AI applications like real time computer vision and safe self-driving cars.  Problem is our current GPU AI chips won’t get us there.  But neuromorphic chips look like they will.

The Coming Revolution in Recurrent Neural Nets (RNNs)

Summary: Recurrent Neural Nets (RNNs) are at the core of the most common AI applications in use today but we are rapidly recognizing broad time series problem types where they don’t fit well.  Several alternatives are already in use and one that’s just been introduced, ODE net is a radical departure from our way of thinking about the solution.

Faster Better Cheaper Image Recognition

Summary:  In the literal blink of an eye, image-based AI has gone from high cost, high risk projects to quick and reasonably reliable.  C-level execs looking for AI techniques to exploit need to revisit their assumptions and move these up the list.  Here’s what’s changed.

 

For data scientists these are miraculous times.  We tend to think of miracles as something that occurs instantaneously but in our world that’s not quite so.  Still the rate…

Things that Aren’t Working in Deep Learning

Summary:  This may be the golden age of deep learning but a lot can be learned by looking at where deep neural nets aren’t working yet.  This can be a guide to calming the hype.  It can also be a roadmap to future opportunities once these barriers are behind us.

 

We are living in the golden age of deep…

Combining CNNs and RNNs – Crazy or Genius?

Summary: There are some interesting use cases where combining CNNs and RNN/LSTMs seems to make sense and a number of researchers pursuing this.  However, the latest trends in CNNs may make this obsolete.

 

There are things that just don’t seem to go together.  Take oil and water for instance.  Both valuable, but try putting…

Transfer Learning –Deep Learning for Everyone

Summary: Deep Learning, based on deep neural nets is launching a thousand ventures but leaving tens of thousands behind.  Transfer Learning (TL), a method of reusing previously trained deep neural nets promises to make these applications available to everyone, even those with very little labeled data.

 

Deep Learning, based on…

Machine Learning – Can We Please Just Agree What This Means

Summary:  As a profession we do a pretty poor job of agreeing on good naming conventions for really important parts of our professional lives.  “Machine Learning” is just the most recent case in point.  It’s had a perfectly good definition for a very long time, but now the deep learning folks are trying to hijack the term.  Come on folks.  Let’s make up our minds.

CNN for Short-Term Stocks Prediction using Tensorflow

Summary

In machine learning, a convolutional neural network (CNN, or ConvNet) is a class of neural networks that has successfully been applied to image recognition and analysis. In this project I've approached this class of models trying to apply it to stock market prediction, combining stock prices with sentiment analysis. The implementation of the network has been made…

Will Our Robots Harm Us?

Summary:  We are approaching a time when we need to be concerned that our AI robots may indeed harm us.  The rapid increase in the conversation about what ethics should apply to AI is appropriate but needs to be focused on the real threats, not just the wild imaginings of the popular press.  Here are some data points to help you in thinking about this, what our concerns should be today, and what our concerns should be in the future.

There’s Nothing Like a Huge Public Failure to Boost Interest in AI

Summary:  We are swept up by the rapid advances in AI and deep learning, and tend to laugh off AI’s failures as good fodder for YouTube videos.  But those failures are starting to add up.  It’s time to take a hard look at the weaknesses in AI and where that’s leading us.

Has Deep Learning Made Traditional Machine Learning Irrelevant?

Summary:  The data science press is so dominated by articles on AI and Deep Learning that it has led some folks to wonder whether Deep Learning has made traditional machine learning irrelevant.  Here we explore both sides of that argument.

 

On Quora the other day I saw a question from an aspiring data scientist that asked – since all the…
