Summary: Quantum computing is already being used in deep learning and promises dramatic reductions in processing time and resource utilization to train even the most complex models. Here are a few things you need to know.
So far in this series of articles on Quantum computing we showed that… Continue

Many organizations today have realized that digital transformation is essential to their success.
But many of them forget that focus of a digital transformation is not digitization or even technology, it is the Customer!
Digital Transformation is not easy or small endeavor for any business. Several levers will need to be turned in unison just to ensure…

The development of artificial intelligence (AI) has had a huge influence on today’s society, as ongoing discussions evaluate the impacts of creating machines and computer systems that can react and perform like humans. These systems can process information in a more cognitive way, making them capable of more human-like functions like learning, decision-making, and visual perception.…

Do you still remember our childhood story of Ali Baba and 40 thieves?
“Open Sesame” was the magical phrase that a poor woodcutter Ali Baba uttered, to open the door of a secret cave in which 40 thieves had hidden bags of gold and treasure. The power of his voice, and using the right words, gave him access to that fortune, and changed his life forever.
We are in the same cusp of open sesame to Digital Transformation and changing our lives. It’s a fact that our lives are… Continue

Today, with of Digitization everything, 80 percent the data being created is unstructured.
Audio, Video, our social footprints, the data generated from conversations between customer service reps, tons of legal document’s texts processed in financial sectors are examples of unstructured data stored in Big Data.
Organizations are turning to natural… Continue

As AI enters our homes through smart home devices or tries to conquer our streets through self-driving cars, one need not be a Luddite to contemplate the potentially heavy implications of AI upon our daily lives and livelihood. The key to answering the question and indeed to understand the ultimate limits of AI is to ask if machines can really think. In this article, I list three tests drawn from three different disciplines to address that… Continue

This post is 'not' intended to teach people how to use popular predictive modelling APIs for free. Although, to your surprise, this isn't a far fetched possibility. Trained Machine learning models are basically a function that maps feature vectors to the output variable. Upon querying with a test instance, the model predicts an outcome, assigning… Continue

Arthur C. Clarke famously stated that “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” No current technology embodies this statement more than neural networks and deep learning. And like any good magic it not only dazzles and inspires but also puts fear into people’s hearts. This primer sheds some light on how neural networks work, hopefully adding to the wonder while reducing the fear.
One known property of artificial neural networks (ANNs) is that they are… Continue

The gender of artificial intelligence
By Tyler Schnoebelen,
There’s Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, Amazon’s Alexa, and Nuance’s Nina. Sure, Facebook has “M”, Google has “Google Now”, and Siri’s voice isn’t always that of a woman. But it does feel worth noting that (typically male-dominated) engineering groups routinely give women’s names to the things you issue commands to. Is artificial…

You can turn right on red in Iowa. Except not where I was last night, from Washington Street on to Linn, which I only realized as I read the “no right on red” sign mid-turn. You’re definitely not supposed to turn left on red, which is what I did a few blocks earlier going from Iowa St. to Clinton. I have no excuse except—I’m not kidding—my mind was preoccupied by thoughts about self-driving… Continue

Andrej Karpathy’s post “The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Recurrent Neural Networks” made splashes last year. The basic premise is that you can create a recurrent neural network to learn language features character-by-character. But is the resultant model any different from a Markov chain built for the same purpose? I implemented a character-by-character Markov chain in R to find out.… Continue

UPDATE: Mar 20, 2016 - Added my new follow-up course on Deep Learning, which covers ways to speed up and improve vanilla backpropagation: momentum and Nesterov momentum, adaptive learning rate algorithms like AdaGrad and RMSProp, utilizing the GPU on AWS EC2, and stochastic batch gradient descent. We look at TensorFlow and Theano starting from the basics - variables, functions, expressions, and simple optimizations - from there, building a neural network seems simple! …

The first computer program that I encountered mimicking or emulating human interaction through language was called "Eliza." The version that I knew ran on the Commodore PET. It communicated in English. Eliza made comments that made some sense but which indicated lack of understanding of the conversation. If a person mentions "mother," Eliza might… Continue

When I read a blog, I often find myself in deep thought as I approach the end, trying to determine if the author has said anything that I might be able to use. A blog doesn't have to say anything. Nor does it have to be useful to me specifically. It might simply offer a personal reflection on life. As a person who also writes blogs, I… Continue
