Summary: Things are getting repetitious and that can be boring. Still, looking at lessons from the 90s it’s clear there are at least one or two decades of important economic advances that will based on our current AI/ML. Then some thoughts on where that next really huge breakthrough will come from that will return our initial excitement.

Summary: In a comprehensive study of 18 recently presented DNN advancements in top-N recommenders, only 7 presented sufficient data to allow reproduction. Worse, of the 7 that could be reproduced none showed an actual improvement over simple linear and KNN techniques when those were properly optimized.

Summary: As we have become ever more enamored with DNNs, and their accuracy and utility has been paced only by their complexity we will need to answer the question of whether we will ever really be able to explain what goes on inside.

Summary: Booz Allen just launched a one-stop shop for all manner of pretested DNN models. They’re even guaranteeing price. This makes buying just like picking accounting, CRM, or HRIS software. Equally as important, it’s a genius example of platform strategy to lock in customers and lock out competitors.
Summary: If you are guiding your company’s digital journey, to what extent should you be advising them to adopt deep learning AI methods versus traditional and mature machine learning techniques.
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.

Summary: How about we develop a ML platform that any domain expert can use to build a deep learning model without help from specialist data scientists, in a fraction of the time and cost. The good news is the folks at the Stanford DAWN project are hard at work on just such a platform and the initial results are extraordinary.

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.
